For 3 years doctors did precisely what the AI analysis predicted. They focused on "science." A fatal mistake, at-scale, where people are still dying needlessly everyday.

Did not move the needle at all.

800K Drs, 111M #Unvaxxed supporters, but can't organize a #DigitalRevolution
And I mean no offense by stating these facts. #HCQ and #IVM should have never gine back through trials. That was a major defeat and like #FaucisDogs they went straight to the kibble. Interviews, podcasts, testimony, books, papers INDEPENDENTLY. When crime after crime was being
committed. They had years to organize and focus on multiple felony criminal act(s) and literally had to choose to prove they were right about an issue that DID NOT warrant proof. #HCQ #IVM were #ConfiscatedAndProhibited in direct violation of our anti-trust laws.

#Information cascade alert!

The US #intelligence agencies are supposed to reveal all information they have with respect to the #OriginOfCovid

I wanted to use the opportunity to explain exactly what you will see happening in the media, no matter the content of those reports
🧵 Image
First, let's talk about expectations.

From the get-go, it is absolutely clear that there is no #smoking gun or similar to be expected.

The intelligence services all had access to the same information and most assessments are low confidence, with 4 agencies favoring #zoonosis. Image
Within the 'manmade' mythology, too many unverified stories are taken as gospel truth.

Overall, the best LLs can hope for is that the IC can verify some #circumstantial evidence that they have spun into their #mythology; but honestly, I highly doubt that.

Tweeps als @ewaldeng, @mauricedehond en @hansvantelling over de rooie: verhaal in Sunday Times zou bewijzen dat corona uit het lab komt! 🚨

Welnee. Stuk is aaneenschakeling van fouten en malle roddels.

Ga er even voor zitten. Ontrafeling. 🧵 😖 Image
2/ Kern van het stuk 👇: corona is gemaakt als biologisch wapen, en lekte daarna de buitenwereld in.

Eh... really?
Een biologisch wapen... met een sterfte van maar 1%????

Maar enfin. Even stap voor stap.…🤔
3/ Sunday Times beweert (zónder bron maar met gelikt kaartje) dat uitbraak plaatsvond rondom lab.

Dat klopt niet. Image

At some point, every #lableak advocate can't help but go full radical. "Crime of the century", "avoidable pandemic" dogwhistle and calling for a "tribunal" based on nothing but vibes.

These people have no place in any normal society and their #lies deserve to haunt them forever. Image
Oh look, the lackeys of actual criminals like billion-dollar-fraudster Miles Guo have no shame to lie about ordinary scientists.

@DiLiMengYAN1 everybody knows you are a liar, fraudster and exchanged you modest credentials for a media stunt by con artists.
Was it worth it? Image
@DiLiMengYAN1 Conspiracy theories attract losers.

There is a reason why all the usual suckers who can't understand a scientific paper on the origin topic turn to the tabloids for vindication

They know it is bullshit, but it brightens their sad life for a day or two.

1/few. Attendees of #Nido2023 may be wondering why I am not being allowed to ask questions of the speakers. Attendees should know too that I was denied the right to share our printed scientific articles. No reason given so far except the "instructions of @ProfVolkerThiel" ...
So here are the dangerous papers you are not being allowed to see:…
One reason may be that last week at #ECV2023 Prof Martin Beer, collaborator with @ProfVolkerThiel embarrassed himself with terrible answers to my...
questions, thus exposing his research program as not a fair-minded and objective enquiry into #Covidorigins but a veiled defence of the zoonotic origin.

#Distort, #discredit, #dismiss - 6 additional tactics of media manipulators and why they work to sabotage public discourse


Details follow:
1/ 6 types of media manipulators
Anti-science activism never went away, it got a new ugly face in the #information age:

Quacks, gurus, contrarian doctors, fake experts, influencers, political commentators and similar media manipulators.

Previously we looked at "merchants of #doubt"

Today, we take a look at the "merchants of #ambiguity"

Their overarching goal is to create the perception that scientific issues are either eternally #unresolved or that #alternative interpretations are just as plausible or likely.

Het is wel grappig om te zien, hoe snel de gemiddelde burger vergeet. En hoe handig @ryhertzberger daarop inspeelt.

Want Rosanne staat altijd aan de goede kant van de geschiedenis: dat wil zeggen, wat vandaag de goede kant is. Want als het morgen de……

Want Rosanne had er niet zo'n moeite meer, hoor. Met die #Desinformatie. Helemaal niet zelfs.

Vooral niet toen het bon ton was om desinformatie te bestrijden. Toch Rosanne?…

En experts moeten plaatsmaken voor generalisten. Aldus Rosanna.

Maar niet als ze neuroloog zijn en iets zeggen over de immunologie. Dan niet.

'Want wat een neuroloog nou van de immunologie?"

Weet je nog, Rosanna? Of komt dat nu niet zo goed van pas?

My talk at @fiocruz about the #lableak theory and the rise of #information pathogens is now freely available.

Thanks @cmmorel and @KropfSimone for this wonderful event.

Here is the youtube link to the full video with time stamps for easy accessibility:
@fiocruz @cmmorel @KropfSimone Here are some more highlights from the talk:

First: How do scientists deal with uncertainty and how can this help us inform ourselves about the most likely
#originofcovid ?

It comes down to asking P(Evidence|Hypothesis):
@fiocruz @cmmorel @KropfSimone Second:
What is the state of evidence (now in 2023) for a #zoonotic origin of SARS-CoV-2 versus a #lableak ?

If you don't have the time, energy or interest to watch the whole talk, here are some take away summaries:

There are new pathogens in our midst.

My latest article about media #manipulators, velocity #hacking, and the latest Covid origin #controversy.

Maybe some #mainstream journalists & influencers take a good look in the mirror.

Read:… Image
How much should we think about the role of information in society?

In this article, I use the recent media coverage surrounding #lableak versus #zoonosis to point toward a new threat we have not yet wrapped our heads around:

Information pathogens with high #velocity. Image
#Velocity is a metric for the transmission efficacy of information given a particular content payload, its viral packaging, and its host environment.

Basically the R0 of information, a measure of #contagiousness.

Info pathogens with high velocity outcompetes good information. Image

Genetisch bewijs: wasbeerhond gaf mensheid coronavirus via @volkskrant

Het is weer de hoogste tijd voor de wekelijkse lachsessie met @mkeulemans als wetenschapsreuteldekeutel...

We gaan het even over het 'bewijs' hebben.

#fekttjekker #WuhanLabLeak
Ik kan het hele artikel lezen, dus ik neem aan dat jullie dat ook kunnen.

Dit is het eigenlijke artikel in @TheAtlantic.

Aan de hand van wat ik daar las, kreeg ik al voorzichtige enige lachstuipjes.

De kritiek op het artikel was niet van de lucht.…
Want wat is nu eigenlijk dat bewijs? Dat hoef ik zelf niet te bedenken, daarvoor zijn er slimmere mensen dan ik, die ook een veel betere achtergrond hebben dan ik om hier een oordeel te geven.

@WashburneAlex schreef er al een artikel over.

"The only explanation for the origin of SARS-CoV-2 that makes any sense is a natural one."
- virologist

"Yeah it could be a lab leak"
- Virologist who wants all their grant money to dry up overnight.

Any questions?
I don't have a horse in the actual race but language like "is the only explanation that makes sense" seems almost biased.

Plus some of these people have negative batting averages anyway.

Lab leaks do happen too:

"Virologists: We didn't make the virus in a lab, but we definitely spilled the tea about it!" #LabLeaks #Viruses

🚨🚨🚨 NEW EVIDENCE #zoonosis
Chinese researchers (who have had troubles getting data out) finally managed to sneak upload full #sequencing data from environmental swaps at Huanan market.

Show: Co-occurance of #animal sequences with SARS-CoV-2 RNA

Added to the evidence map 🔽
@KatherineJWu 's atlantic article first reported on this new development.

(independent reseachers have been waiting on these data to come out for over a year)

I will give some context in the next few tweets:…
1⃣ Does this prove that SARS-CoV-2 came from racoon dogs?

Not definitively. Co-occurance of sequences could be from chance contamination in theory. Also, even if racoon dogs were indeed infected, they might just have been amplifiers at market, not the original source.

🚨🚨🚨 @KatherineJWu first to get this scoop down.

The Chinese CDC finally uploaded market sampling data, and as expected, environmental swaps positive for SARS-CoV-2 point to raccoon dogs.

Yet another strong piece of evidence for #zoonotic origin & against any #lableak myth
@KatherineJWu Just to add a bit of context:

Environmental swaps were taken from the Huanan market, and that many of them tested positive was already confirmed a year ago in a pre-print from researchers at the Chinese CDC.

However, they did not make their sequencing data available and...
@KatherineJWu ...thus had trouble getting their pre-print accepted.

It now appears that in order to get the paper published (speculation!), one of the researchers uploaded the sequences, and voila, they contained exactly what people like @edwardcholmes @MichaelWorobey expected; animal DNA/RNA

By now, everyone's heard about the #WuhanLab & #lableak 🧪🦠🦇🐭

But did you know that in April 2020, WCW was the 1st to expose (& cut!) taxpayer funding for the Wuhan animal lab? 🔎💸✂️

A #SunshineWeek 🧵…
Via #FOIA, we uncovered the infamous 2016 emails where NIH & EcoHealth conspire to violate the federal #GainOfFunction ban & Peter Dazsak exclaims "This is terrific!" when NIH approves the dangerous animal tests at the #WuhanLab 🧪🦠🦇🐭💸

Via #FOIA, we unearthed documents showing that EcoHealth was collecting dangerous bat coronaviruses around the world (incl in Laos) & shipping them to the #WuhanLab for experiments 🦇🦠🧪💸

Viele geschätzte Maßnahmenkritiker, darunter @MichaelPSenger, halten die Unterstützung der #LabLeak -These in der öffentlichen Diskussion für kontraproduktiv.

Die These dabei: Sie könnte wirksam als Legitimation von #Lockdown oder #Massenimpfung dienen.

Ein Einspruch.

Erstens können Maßnahmenkritiker, die von einem #LabLeak ausgehen, auf frühe empirische Befunde zur Gefährlichkeit des Virus hinweisen.

Diese zeigten bekanntlich, dass Lockdowns und überhastete Massenimpfung unnötig waren.

Dazu die #Lockdownfiles.

Es handelt sich damit, zweitens, um keinen Widerspruch, zugleich von einem #Lableak und einer überschaubaren Gefahr des C-Virus auszugehen.

Man könnte Lockdowns und Massenimpfung selbst dann kritisieren, wenn man von einer größeren Gefahr ausginge.

Emails just released by @GOPoversight reflect how @NIH leaders helped shepherd Proximal Origins paper through publication to help refute #LabLeak hypothesis. Influential scientists worked publicly to discredit the theory but privately thought was… /1
credible. I raised these questions in March 2022 in @VanityFair, asking: "Why top scientists linked arms to tamp down public speculation about a lab leak...remains unclear." /2…
I should add that the "new" Ian Lipkin email first appeared in my @VanityFair story from 3/22, which we quoted: “Given the scale of the bat CoV research pursued there and the site of emergence of the first human cases we have a nightmare of circumstantial evidence to assess.”

US Department of Energy (DoE) report on COVID origins & FBI director on Fox news has set cat among pidgeons again -so is a #lableak now more likely now?

No - and demands to investigate lab-leak narratives neglect basic principles of scientific inquiry; a thread 🧵 Image
So first thing to note is the DoE report is classified, but concludes with "low confidence" - what does that mean in practice? That its unreliable, and not a basis for an analytical conclusion. Note that the report didn't change any other intelligence outfits minds either.. Image
This togethers implies that any ostensible evidence DoE marshal is somewhat underwhelming; not surprising when steady evidence has accumulated since 2020 all pointing to the conclusion that the virus emerged from animal spill-over, with not a shred of solid evidence otherwise..

Voor het boek over het Wuhan #lableak heb ik nu alle studies gelezen die bewijzen dat #SARSCoV2 al veel eerder circuleerde, zowel in Wuhan als ook in andere delen van de wereld.

Deze studies maken de studie van Worobey et al. in een klap waardeloos.
Ik pik er een aantal uit. Lees en oordeel zelf.

@MarionKoopmans werkte mee aan deze studie, als lid van een kleine club virologen die op alle mogelijke manieren de #lableak in diskrediet proberen te brengen.
Ze heeft nooit enige aandacht besteed aan deze gegevens. Ze kwamen blijkbaar niet van pas.

The Brownstone institute is a fracking-billionaire funded anti-science #disinformation outlet

I just highlight some passages to show that the #lableak conspiracy myth would always have happened, no matter where COVID first broke out

If not the WIV, then 🔽

A master thread:
Many amplifiers, including some science journalists, believe that a legitimate scientific uncertainty & geographic coincidence underneath the #originofcovid controversy is the root cause and driver for the conspiracy myth.

This is false
Yes, the inital uncertainties were real
but no matter where the virus initially broke out, there would always be some lab or some scientists that could be made to associate with.

All pandemics were followed by #conspiracy theories about their origins. The 1918 flu was blamed on the Germans and their aspirin, ffs.
