*Disclaimer: I am not a microbiologist, I simply research the information being reported by several sources – both current and over the past decade or so – and have come to this understanding of the virus. I have included hyperlinks to the evidence I am presenting, but I encourage all of you to take the time to research this information on your own.

After publishing my recent article on China’s admitting to being funded by the National Institute of Health that showed evidence of the COVID-19 coronavirus originating in the Wuhan Institute of Virology P4 Bioweapons Lab, I was contacted by several readers who informed me they were not able to post the article on Facebook without a “False Info” label attached. While my article was “independently fact-checked” by USA Today, it was cited using links to articles and photos from reports. (Read more in original article on Facebook “fact-checkers” below)

I did dispute USA Today‘s false rating mainly to see which part of the article they were claiming to be false. I received the following email in response to my appeal this morning. The email reads as follows:

Haley, Thank you for your appeal. We at USA Today are part of Facebook’s third-party fact-checking program. Facebook works with independent fact-checking organizations around the world that are certified by the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). We review and rate the veracity of articles, images, videos and text posts, focused on claims that are spreading virally. You can read more about our methodology here. After reviewing your dispute, we have respectfully decided not to change USA TODAY’s false rating: The article states in multiple places that the novel coronavirus was engineered. That has been found to be false, as stated in our fact check. If you issue a correction, we will review it and can update the rating on your content. Please note that deleting a post or removing a URL will make it impossible for us to process your appeal. Per Facebook’s Help Center: For corrections to URLs, please ensure the relevant information has been corrected on both your website and the relevant Facebook post (including headline). Please let me know if you have any questions. Best regards, KatieEmail signed Katie Wadington Fact-Check Editor, USA Today

A little about Katie Wadington, “fact-checker” from USA Today: “After spending 15 years at the Asheville Citizen Times, news director Katie Wadington will leave her post this month for a new role at USA Today. There, she will be working on the politics team as an editor on a new project that will involve the entire USA Today network,” according to Talking Biz News. Why so secretive about the censoring of truth?? Why not just come right out and say it and be PROUD of censoring facts? Usually people only hide things they know are wrong or things they’re ashamed of.

USA Today has put quite the burden on little ol’ me to prove that COVID-19 was engineered rather than having occurred by way of natural selection. I have done my best to present the information I have come across while researching that convinced me that COVID-19 is a chimera and could only be developed by way of splicing, adding, and deleting certain parts of the genome of the virus.

One last thing before we get into it. USA Today won’t be reviewing any corrections to the original article (or the headline, since they mentioned that as well), because I don’t plan to make any. However, what I will do is present to YOU, the reader, how I came to my conclusion based on the evidence I have acquired while researching this topic. The reader (at least those who read Kennington Press) is intelligent enough to take the information presented to them, review it, process it, compare it to other information gathered, and make up their own minds on whether what they have read is evidence that COVID-19 was bioengineered. These Big Tech overlords want to control the flow of information. Their hiring of third-party “fact-checkers” to filter content they don’t want you to see is CENSORSHIP and it infringes on my First Amendment rights.


The microbiology behind COVID-19 is fairly dry, but I will try to keep it as simple and concise as possible.

Let’s take a look at the sequence structure of COVID-19. There are 4 major sequences that need particular attention: KF294457.1 (KF) strand, which is a Bat SARS-like coronavirus which mutated based on (assumed) natural selection to MG7772933.1(MG) -also Bat SARS-like which is labeled “Wuhan seafood market” by The National Institute of Health’s National Center for Biotechnology Information or NCBI. KY417146.1 (KY) strand, Bat SARS-like with the MG strand, whose translocation creates the Wuhan COVID-19 strand MN908947.3 (MN).

These changes took place within the endonuclease in the replicase and the S protein section of the genome. Here’s the isolated Wuhan-Hu-1 MN908947.3 genome, otherwise known as COVID-19:

The biggest difference seen in these strands is in the area of the endonuclease and the coding of the S proteins, otherwise known as spike proteins (seen in the image below as the blue rods that align the outside of the cell) which in natural occurrences of SARS-CoV-1 don’t have the ability to penetrate Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 Receptors or (ACE2 receptors) ripping the veil, and allowing the pathway of the virus to invade humans cells and destroy them.

The left side of the genome is where you code for the replicase. You’ll see above where even the most similar strands of the virus have chunks missing in that area to the left side. Replicase helps in the early production of proteins for the virus and turns the positive RNA strand to a negative RNA strand. The replicase is arguably the most important part of the genome sequence as it’s the first thing translated from the ribosomes in the affected cell.

The right side of the genome is where the S protein or spike protein is located. The S protein is what connects to the epithelial tissue of the cell. The KY strand has the code for the S protein that is very similar to the code for the MG strand. The KY strand however is missing the code for a large chunk of the endonuclease. A section between 2,000 and 4,000 nucleotides on the front end of the genome where most of SARS viruses are missing nucleotides, but the MG strand does have them.

What’s even more insane, the receptor binding site of COVID-19 has been replaced with inserts that are almost identical to those found in HIV-1 gp 120 or HIV-1 Gag. This means it has the ability to attack red blood cells at an accelerated rate, and lower already compromised and weak immune systems in humans.

Before the Wuhan coronavirus (MN), there were 2 strands of Bat SARS, one was the MG strand and one was the KY strand. They KY strand had the code for the S protein that the MG strand didn’t have. The MG strand was missing the code for the endonuclease that the KY didn’t have. By putting these 2 together, you get the Wuhan coronavirus, COVID-19. You now have 2 Bat SARS-like strands within COVID-19, MN. (MN908947.3.)

Basically, SARS-CoV-1 on steroids.

“Like a turbo-charged biological weapon which would consist of SARS, already a weaponised coronavirus with Gain-of-Function properties with HIV.”Dr. Francis Boyle, Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois

What are the odds of this happening in a natural setting? Pretty low. Huge sections appear to be copy/pasted from these strands, with changes being made to enhance the permeability of the S (spike) protein penetrating the ACE2 receptor and the cell membrane itself. The chances that 4 separate sequences within the genome mutated and become zoonotic in a natural environment are close to impossible. You see changes once, maybe twice at most with genomes that have naturally mutated, certainly not four and certainly not in separate places throughout the genome. This is where the gain-of-function comes in.


As reported in my earlier piece, “An article published in The Scientist in 2015 mentions infectious-disease researcher Ralph Baric, along with the effort of his team at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in their gain-of-function research to create a chimera, mixing the SHCO14 coronavirus spike protein from Chinese horseshoe bats with that of the SARS-CoV-1 virus.”

Why does this matter? Without the gain-of-function it would never have had the ability (perhaps a 0.00001% chance) of ever jumping species and becoming zoonotic.

Kind of a big deal.

A February 2018 article published by Talha Burki of The Lancet shows that the NIH, (who still has close ties to their former director, Dr. Anthony Fauci) would resume funding gain-of-function experiments on not just influenza, but also MERS and SARS coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-1.

“On Dec 19, 2017, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that they would resume funding gain-of-function experiments involving influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus. A moratorium had been in place since October, 2014. At the time, the NIH had stated that the moratorium “will be effective until a robust and broad deliberative process is completed that results in the adoption of a new US Government gain-of-function research policy”. This process has now concluded. It was spearheaded by the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) and led to the development of a new framework for assessing funding decisions for research involving pathogens with enhanced pandemic potential. The release of the framework by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), of which NIH is part, signalled the end of the funding pause,” Burki reports.

“The debate is focused on a subset of gain-of-function studies that manipulate deadly viruses to increase their transmissibility or virulence.”

“‘This is what happens to viruses in the wild’, explains Carrie Wolinetz, head of the NIH Office of Science Policy. “Gain-of-function experiments allow us to understand how pandemic viruses evolve, so that we can make predictions, develop countermeasures, and do disease surveillance”. Although none of the widely publicised mishaps of 2014 involved such work, the NIH decided to suspend funding for gain-of-function studies involving influenza, MERS-CoV, and SARS-CoV,” Burki continues.

“There was a recent scientific study in Antiviral Research published in 10 February 2020 by three scientists, two from France and one from Montreal. They did a genetic analysis of the Wuhan coronavirus and they said It may provide a ‘Gain-of-Function’ for the 2019 coronavirus with efficient spreading in the human population, compared to other lineage coronaviruses,” says Dr. Francis Boyle Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois and author of Biowarfare and Terrorism.

“My reading of these three articles basically is that they took the technology, this ‘Death Factory’ at North Carolina and the Australian research project and took it back to Wuhan and tried to genetically engineer it all together,” Boyle continued.

Could it be that it was released on a small population in Wuhan during the Military World Games which just so happened to be held the same day as EVENT 201, October 18th, 2019? Just food for thought, maybe that’s a stretch, but this oddidity is worth noting all the same.

This also makes me wonder what kind of research Harvard Professor Charles Lieber was doing that China was willing to pay him $50,000 per month, as well as about $150,000 a year between 2012 and 2017. During his time with Harvard, the nanoscientist received over $15 million in grants from NIH and DOD since 2008, according to Nature.

Powerhouse Michelle Malkin reported in January 2020 on the Lieber situation saying, “It is unknown how many Chinese nationals worked in either Lieber’s America- or China-based labs. But the two Chinese nationals charged with Lieber were cancer researcher Zaosong Zheng, 29, whom Harvard sponsored on a J-1 work-study exchange visa and Yanqing Ye, 29, whom Boston University sponsored on a J-1. Prosecutors allege Ye is a CCP member and top military lieutenant. Zheng is accused of attempting to smuggle ’21 vials of biological research’ aboard a flight destined for China.”

Proposed recruitment direction 1: Ecological study of bat migration and virus transmission

Prospective direction 2: bat virus cross-species infection and its pathogenicity


Why did CCP keep things so hush? Why are they still not being upfront about any and all information regarding the virus?

NTD News (@news_ntd) posted a tweet Sunday that reads, “The #ChineseCommunistParty hasn’t let scientists from around the world into the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is being probed by American officials as a possible source of the #CCPvirus (#coronavirus), according to U.S. Secretary of State @SecPompeo.”

China in Focus -NTD (@ChinaInFocusNTD) explains: ” For the first time, the entire copy of a Chinese regime’s internal document has been exposed to the public. The document revealed why—despite obtaining the #CCPvirus’ genome sequence as early as Dec. 27—no labs in China shared it with the world until 15 days later on Jan 11.” WATCH:

There are a few questions you have to ask yourself about this entire COVID-19 situation and its origin. Does it matter where it originated from? Yes, it does. Why? Because if it was engineered in a lab, which it appears to be based on the sequencing of the genomes in the different strands, then the first question you must ask yourself is why? Why would they be engineering such a virus by way of ENHANCING its permeability and strength? It’s one thing to be studying the sequencing and moving this or that, but these specific changes being made to strands KNOWN to be BAT SARS-like or (SARS-CoV-1) would have to have been for a specific reason. Bioweapon?

It’s public knowledge that a cure for the different coronavirus strands has been researched since 2010. That being said, I don’t believe all of the research being done over the past decade to be nefarious. There’s a possibility that around 2015, when their research of all coronavirus strands slowed down and up until 2017 when it halted completely, COVID-19 was perfected as a bioweapon and then shelved until it was released on an unsuspecting public. The rest of that time was probably your run-of-the-mill research to create vaccines for already known strands of SARS-CoV-1. Did this change when the NIH had their funding ban on gain-of-function lifted?

Personally, I believe this WAS a case of weaponizing an already known strand by way of taking out certain elements and adding others to make the virus more dangerous, easier to spread, and with devastating consequences to any person with a lowered immune system whose body is overrun by this virus.

The next question you must ask yourself is where did it come from? It’s convenient that both the Wuhan P4 Bioweapons Lab (WIV) AND the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention (WHCDC) are so close to the Huanan Seafood Market. Now, this could mean a few different things. Under the guise of the virus being created as a chimera in the Wuhan Institute of Virology Lab (WIV), was it leaked accidently by a P4 lab worker? Did one of the lab researchers accidently (somehow) contract the virus while they were working and then go visit their boyfriend or girlfriend who worked at the nearby wet market, transferring the virus and it spreading from there? How about the lower biosafety level WHCDC (Level 2) lab? Could that be why it appeared to come from the seafood market, with a large percentage of the first patients in Wuhan to test positive for the virus having been to the market within the period of incubation?

So many questions.

“Patient Zero” may never be found. That being said, they have identified the first confirmed case of a patient who tested positive for COVID-19, and the patient had no connection whatsoever to the Huanan Seafood market.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is less than 9 miles from Huanan Seafood Market. (8.6 miles)

The Scientist reported 2 different SARS strands somehow escaped a lab in Beijing almost a decade ago which caused an outbreak and hundreds were quarantined. Two of the cases were in people who worked in the Chinese Institute of Virology in Beijing, which is part of China’s Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization told The Scientist in 2004. The five officials were subsequently punished for their recklessness.

We know that the WIV had poor security measures, as in March 3rd, 2018, the United States sent diplomats to WIV to inspect the level of safety being used at the lab, along with the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention lab. “Two US-China embassy officials, said there is a ‘serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory,’” according to a report released by the Washington Post. A similar report came back on the Wuhan CDC lab which operates on a Level 2 biosecurity clearance.

In 2015, funding from the United States’ National Institute of Health (NIH) in the amount of $3.7 million was sent to WIV to increase and continue their study of coronavirus strands, as I reported on April 13th:

A report released March 6th, 2020 from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research states that Canada increased their coronavirus research funding “using isothermal amplification and CRISPR technology” from $7 million to $27 million, with $828,046 being sent to WIV to ramp up testing capabilities against COVID-19.

Was that same technology of CRISPR used to splice certain pieces of the SARS-CoV-1 strand and other Bat SARS-like strands to create the chimera that is SARS-CoV-2 aka COVID-19?

The following information is from a February 1st, 2020 report released by International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID, ISFD):

“SARS is a zoonosis caused by SARS-CoV, which first emerged in China in 2002 before spreading to 29 countries/regions in 2003 through a travel-related global outbreak with 8,098 cases with a case fatality rate of 9.6%. Nosocomial transmission (of SARS-CoV) was common while the primary reservoir was putatively bats, although unproven as the actual source and the intermediary source was civet cats in the wet markets in Guangdong.” 

“The Chinese scientists were able to isolate a 2019-nCoV from a patient within a short time on 7 Jan 2020 and perform genome sequencing of the 2019-nCoV. The genetic sequence of the 2019-nCoV has become available to the WHO on 12 Jan 2020 and this has facilitated the laboratories in different countries to produce specific diagnostic PCR tests for detecting the novel infection (WHO, 2020b). The 2019-nCoV is a β CoV of group 2B with at least 70% similarity in genetic sequence to SARS-CoV and has been named 2019-nCoV by the WHO.”

“The 2019-nCoV infection in Wuhan appears clinically milder than SARS or MERS overall in terms of severity, case fatality rate and transmissibility, which increases the risk of cases remaining undetected. There is currently no clear evidence of human to human transmission. No new cases have been detected in Wuhan since 3 January 2020. However the first case outside China was reported on 13th January 2020 in a Chinese tourist in Thailand with no epidemiological linkage to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market.”- IJID

Truth Tellers Are Speaking Out

One doctor (and military veteran) who knows the truth and is sounding the alarm is Dr. Rashid Buttar, who spoke to Gary with Next News Network on YouTube. This video has been up for 2 days and has already acquired almost 3 million views. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a few minutes to review the information he shares with the public. We need more doctors willing to speak out on what they know and what they’re seeing!!

Dr. Paul Cottrell explained to Stefan Molyneux March 18th, 2020, why he feels the virus could not occur naturally, based on his review of the genome sequencing of COVID-19 compared to SARS-CoV-1 and other strands of coronavirus. His bio reads “Dr. Cottrell is currently at Harvard University as an ALM candidate specializing in Biology and has completed the Pre-Medical program at Fordham University.”

Zero Hedge published an article on Friday that states:” Professor Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Prize winner for Medicineclaims that SARS-CoV-2 is a manipulated virus that was accidentally released from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. Chinese researchers are said to have used coronaviruses in their work to develop an AIDS vaccine. HIV DNA fragments are believed to have been found in the SARS-CoV-2 genome.”

Montagnier bio, Source:

Indian researchers have already tried to publish the results of the analyses that showed that this coronavirus genome contained sequences of another virus, … the HIV virus (AIDS virus), but they were forced to withdraw their findings as the pressure from the mainstream was too great,” Montagnier told his colleague Dr Jean-François Lemoine.

The article continues:

“In a challenging question Dr Jean-François Lemoine inferred that the coronavirus under investigation may have come from a patient who is otherwise infected with HIV.”

“No,” says Luc Montagnier, “in order to insert an HIV sequence into this genome, molecular tools are needed, and that can only be done in a laboratory.”

Whether released on purpose or accidently, I am of the opinion that COVID-19 does not occur naturally and was bioengineered. I think when enough doctors, scientists, professors, and biologists (who aren’t afraid of losing funding) step up and report their findings – as Boyle, Buttar, Cottrell, Montagnier, and others are beginning to -there will be no way it can continue to be ignored. What do you think, natural selection or lab created chimera?

Until next time, I’ll leave you with a quote fromProfessor Luc Montagnier when asked if his opinion of COVID-19 being created in a lab will place him in the “tin foil hat” community:

“Conspirators are the opposite camp, hiding the truth.”

“In any case, the truth always comes out, it is up to the Chinese government to take responsibility.”Zero Hedge
