Bird Flu: Gain of Function — Truth Hidden In Plain Sight?

“Fowl” Play Up Ahead || Courtesy of ex CDC Director Robert Redfield

It’s seemingly coming—a New P$andemic.

I firmly believe Scene Two of the P$andemic is just around the corner. I am already working on a follow-up story to last week’s viral Bird Flu post after learning that the US government is spending $1 million of American taxpayer money to fund experiments on the avian flu with mallard ducks. The mallard is the most abundant, wide-ranging duck on earth and can crossbreed with 63 other species. Mallards are also well-known asymptomatic carriers of bird flu—that is, they carry it around but are often not sickened by it. Thus, the mallard is literally the ideal species for transporting an infectious disease pathogen as wide and far as possible.

The project’s main collaborators are the USDA Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute, a Wuhan lab partner.

Funding for avian virus research began in April 2021 and is slated to continue through March 2026. The USDA applied for this project in 2019 and it was approved in 2020. The specific viruses the researchers will work with include H5NX, H7N9, and H9N2, as reported by the White Coat Waste Project (WCW).

Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa recently wrote to US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack, seeking more information about the department’s ongoing research funding.

According to the Tavistock publication The Daily Mail, despite the senator’s concerns, Allan Rodriguez, a USDA spokesperson, said it is “common for international researchers to conduct independent research that’s connected to the same end goal” and that the research does not qualify as gain-of-function.

He added that:

“Any time Senator Ernst has a question for USDA about our research or our commitment to helping America’s farmers mitigate animal diseases like highly pathogenic avian influenza, she should reach out to us directly before putting misinformation in a press release or public letter…and despite the senator’s assertions, this is not gain-of-function research.”

Rodriguez added that the $100 million funding awarded to do the research “is only being committed to the specific components carried out by their own team located in Athens, Georgia, and is not in any way contributing to research taking place in the UK or China.”

Let’s read that statement again: “Because animal diseases present a global threat, it is common for international researchers to conduct independent research with the same end goal…”

So, sometimes, the government denies Gain of Function (GOF) research; other times, it defends it. For instance, on June 18th, at a Senate Homeland Security Committee Hearing on the origins of COVID-19, they remarked that the GOF research plays a healthy role in helping us fashion vaccines.

Which one is it?

Some medical professionals like Dr. J. Jay Couey, Ph.D., neuroscientist and ex-scientific advisor to the Children’s Health Defense, say that GOF is a “limited hangout” and a distraction. He said this at the Red Pill Expo last weekend. Couey made many valid points, like calling out the slew of faux medical freedom fighters and the flawed PCR test, but I personally disagree with his take on GOF. I believe there is no such thing as a distraction from the truth.

A few days ago, I caught Dr. John Campbell talking about a month-old interview Robert Redfield conducted with News Nation. I think Redfield reveals a lot in his exchange. Redfield is seeding the narrative and discreetly telling us what is coming, hidden in plain sight. And I definitely think avian flu will be amplified in the coming months—it is already on its way.

Meanwhile, what is the truth about zoonotic jumps? According to Wikipedia, Zoonotic jumps refer to the transmission of infectious diseases from non-human animals to humans. These diseases can be caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, or prions. Zoonotic spillover is a common event, with more than two-thirds of human viruses being zoonotic. Is this real?  It could be.  There are many animals in the world, and confining them in unsanitary pens most likely comes with consequences. But does that mean a bat can really infect a civet cat? Maybe. Maybe not.

For the purposes of the New World Order Agenda, the concept of a zoonotic jump definitely exists.

As Redfield said (emphasis mine):

“… When SARS came in 2002-2003, it went from a bat to a civet cat, then to humans. It never learned how to go from human to human. And MERS in 2012-13, from a bat to a camel to humans, it never learned how to go from human to human.

Normally, there’s a species barrier that takes a long time for these zoonotic viruses to figure out how to get around. I’m obviously most worried about bird flu. Right now, it takes five amino acid changes to infect humans effectively. That’s a pretty heavy species barrier. But this virus is already in 26 mammal species, as you saw most recently, cattle.

But in the laboratory, I could make it highly infectious for humans in months because the five amino acids I need to change have been published. And so I don’t think that research should be done. That’s the real threat.”

However, the research has already been done and continues…

Redfield continues:

“That’s the real biosecurity threat that these university labs are doing; these bio experiments that are intentionally modifying viruses and bird flu, I think, are going to be the cause of the great pandemic, where they are teaching these viruses how to be more infectious.”

Is that why the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), ordered 4.8 million doses of the vaccine, and the European Union purchased more than 40 million vaccines? Why would they do this when there has only been ONE death (with questionable links to avian bird flu, by the way) and less than 10 cases worldwide? And how did BARDA settle on 4.8 million doses? Why not five million?

Prematuredness or Preparedness?A Little History Lesson on Avian Flu

Redfield was referring to a landmark 2012 study in which Dutch researchers manufactured the H5N1 bird flu to spread airborne between ferrets through a combination of genetic engineering and serial infection.

In the fall of 2011, Dr. Ron Fouchier, a Dutch virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, developed “one of the most dangerous viruses you can make”, as reported in War on the Rocks, a platform for analysis and debate on strategy, defense, and foreign affairs. Fouchier claimed that his team had “done something really, really stupid” and “mutated the hell out of H5N1.”

This was one of two H5N1 transmissibility experiments that sparked a fierce controversy. At nearly the same time, Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka at the University of Wisconsin-Madison worked on grafting the H5N1 spike gene onto the 2009 H1N1 swine flu, creating another transmissible, virulent strain.

At first, the study was held back and eventually published in Science, outlining how he and his colleagues generated the virus. Generated.

Kawaoka’s study was published in Nature in early May, the same journal that published the classic (and completely fabricated) Proximal Origins paper, which I have written about at length. Further studies show Dr. Fouchier’s research group working for the U.S. to mutate many viruses, including HIV and other flu types.

I found both of their names in the study below.

Billy Boy Was Here

I play a sick rendition of Where’s Waldo, except I am looking for Bill Gates. He’s never too far away. With a little digging, I easily found that the Gates Foundation has awarded monies to the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

According to the McCullough Foundation, a project of Dr. Peter McCullough, the Gates Foundation gave $9.5 million to principal investigator Yoshihiro Kawaoka to modify, possibly through gain-of-function tampering, H5N1 so it will “preferentially recognize human-type receptors and transmit efficiently in mammals.”

Building upon Ron Fouchier’s research, which previously modified H5N1 to become airborne-transmissible in ferrets, UW-Madison and Kawaoka’s research provides two additional mutations needed to make Egyptian H5N1 produce “variants” with mammalian “transmissibility features.”

In my recent interview with John Cullen, he cited Kawaoka’s work on H5N1. Please take a moment to really take in the excerpt below. It’s insane, and I’m not quite sure how this was allowed to happen.

Deadly Predictions

It’s said that the original bird flu killed 50% of those who were exposed to it. America blamed contaminated chickens as the source of the flu. Do you believe this? When it supposedly jumped the species barrier from a chicken to a cow, the powers that be renamed it H591 from Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI).

On January 13, 2020, Trump signed a deal with Moderna with only ONE death on the books—kind of like what BARDA just did with the avian flu. Watch this segment of our recent interview with John Cullen.

“We just had the great pandemic, and it was bird flu,” Cullen said.  He believes the deaths were really caused by bird flu rather than H759 vs COVID-19. He thinks H5N1 is the new Red Herring, and it’s really H7N9 they are afraid of.

“That’s why no one mentions H7N9,” he tweeted here. He also mentions the 2013 bird flu outbreak in poultry in China. “You were simply TOLD it was COVID from Wuhan. It was really H7N9 from Wisconsin.”

Is that why no one (other than John Cullen) mentions this? Although to his credit, Brett Weinstein did recently acknowledge that Cullen’s findings have merit. Not that we need the not-so-obvious establishment to confirm this. We just need to look at the facts. You can start here with John Cullen’s work.
