How did Robert W. Malone, the US military-backed pioneer of mRNA vaccines and genetic manipulation through the use of electrical pulse fields become one of the leading voices of vax skepticism?
Robert Malone: "For the first third of my career, I was an academic...and then, since about 2001, right after 9/11, I transitioned to working with the Department of Defense in developing vaccines and countermeasures for biodefense pathogens."
Malone has been back by the US military in a number of ways throughout his career. For example, working at the military-run Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, where he served as Director of Tissue Banking. static1.squarespace.com/static/550b0ac… Image
Malone also helped get Merck's Ebola vaccine fast-tracked, teaming with USAMRIID and WRAIR and also, per his own description, serving as liaison between the Pentagon and the WHO and Norwegian government. He's also helped develop BARDA and DTRA contracts to the tune of $50M. Image
Malone has dubbed himself the "Inventor of mRNA vaccines and RNA as a drug," and while that's probably overstating things, he did play a key early role in discovering that mRNA can be used to make human cells produce proteins, the basis of the mRNA vaxxes. nature.com/articles/d4158… Image
Later, he would conduct research showing that pulsed electrical fields can be used to significantly improve genetic transfection—i.e., the introduction of DNA/RNA into human cells. This work was funded in part by the US military. sciencedirect.com/science/articl… ImageImage
Malone later served on the Zika Response Working Group (ZRWG) with bioweapons maven Michael Callahan, who would become "DARPA's Man in Wuhan" following the initial Covid outbreak. journals.plos.org/plosntds/artic… Image
Callahan, who "reconfigured" old Soviet bio-weapons labs and massively expanded DARPA's "biodefense" portfolio, was, on Jan 4, 2020, the first person to tell Malone about a novel disease outbreak in Wuhan. unlimitedhangout.com/2020/07/invest… Image
Malone soon began working with the Pentagon to do a supercomputer analysis that would find FDA-approved drugs that might help combat Covid. He identified famotidine, aka Pepcid, which he claims to have taken to treat his own bout of Covid. Magically, Callahan ID'ed the same drug. Image
The ZRWG acknowledged that Zika is normally mild and noted that the 2014 spread in Brazil was concerning because of increased microcephaly and Guillen-Barre Syndrome. However, this ignores that only 12% of microcephaly cases had confirmed Zika infections. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P… ImageImage
The more likely cause of the prevalence of microcephaly in NW Brazil was actually the introduction of a pesticide, Pyriproxyfen, into the drinking water supply. A recent paper bolsters this conclusion. theconversation.com/common-pestici…
Yet AFAICT Malone has never mentioned Pyriproxyfen much less noted any potential role of pesticides in Brazil's microcephaly spike.
But he was pretty hot on repurposing common drugs to combat Zika infection--and working with Ft. Detrick director Sina Bavari to do it. linkedin.com/pulse/zika-vir… Image
One of Malone's many companies, Atheric, contracted with Ft. Detrick to study whether some combination of anti-viral and anti-worm drugs could prevent Zika infection. dailyprogress.com/the-war-on-zik… Image
In 2013, Malone co-authored a paper entitled "Making vaccines 'on demand,'" which proposed a "FastVax" process that would compress the vaccine development timeline to just a few months. tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.416… Image
This paper was explicitly framed as a response to the threat of a biowarfare attack. Interestingly, it identified novel coronaviruses as one of the emerging pathogens/WMD biowarfare agents which pose a threat to US biodefense. ImageImageImage
Three of the authors on this paper are associated with EpiVax, which is currently developing a T-cell driven Covid vaccine. EpiVax's website promotes that this vaccine could be used in conjunction with the already approved antibody-driven vaccines. epivax.com/home/vaccine-s… Image
Malone was paid by EpiVax as a consultant on its vaccine development programs and sat on the company's scientific advisory board. Malone's CV lists consulting work for EpiVax as recently as 2020. static1.squarespace.com/static/550b0ac… ImageImage
One of the issues with doing a thread on Malone is that he's involved in so many different projects, nearly all of them directly tied into the US's biodefense regime. He's been involved in everything from e-cigs to anthrax vaccines. static1.squarespace.com/static/550b0ac… ImageImage

The talking point from lab-leak proponents is that DARPA rejected EcoHealth's DEFUSE proposal because it was too risky. (If you read the letter closely, it's not clear this is true.) However, in a March 2, 2018 meeting, DARPA reviewer Jim Gimlett did not raise any risk concerns. Image
Gimlett did, however, note that DARPA was not able to fund all proposals and may partially fund proposals or fund later stages of proposals. This gibes with the letter written (though not signed) by Gimlett which noted "several components" of DEFUSE were "potentially fundable."
Gimlett also noted in his 3/2/18 meeting with Daszak that one of the primary issues with DEFUSE was validation. Lack of validation was one of the reasons cited for rejecting DEFUSE. Image

Last month, @emilyakopp of @USRightToKnow published an article about the infamous DEFUSE proposal based on documents obtained from USGS, a DEFUSE partner. However, USRTK uploaded only a portion of those records.

I have obtained the full FOIA cache: archive.org/details/2021-0…
@emilyakopp @USRightToKnow Scientist and natural-origin proponent @flodebarre also appears to have obtained the same cache of documents. She too has refused to publish the full batch, instead plucking out small excerpts in support of this thread:
@emilyakopp @USRightToKnow @flodebarre (If you can't see the quoted tweet above, that's because Flo blocked me months ago.)

I do not in any way agree with GoFundMe taking down the Grayzone's fundraiser, but, since I've yet to see anyone else mention it, I do think it's worth putting on the record that Max Blumenthal has reportedly agitated for such takedowns in the past. observer.com/2016/01/its-on…
The Observer article reports that Max "pressured" GoFundMe to remove a fundraiser by (virulently pro-Israel pseudo-rabbi) Shmuley Boteach to buy a NYT ad tying then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Max via his dad, long-time Clinton consigliere Sidney Blumenthal. Image
However, the Observer's only apparent source is Boteach himself who merely said he "believes" Max contacted GoFundMe directly, just as he had written to Huffington Post editor Ryan Grim to decry an op-ed attacking him written by Boteach. Image

Two months after dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the US military began drafting a secret plan to nuke 20 Soviet Cities in a "prevenative" surprise attack without provocation or warning. https://t.co/0glssyr2Jparchive.org/details/isbn_0…
This plan, known as JIC 329 (or "Strategic Vulnerability of the USSR to a Limited Air Attack") acknowledged that the Soviets posed no immediate threat to the US. Decimated by WWII and lacking a navy, the USSR was in a dire position relative to the largely unscathed US military.
Knowing this, JIC 329 recommended a surprise barrage of nuclear strikes if it appeared that the Soviets "would eventually gain the capability of either attacking the US or rebuffing a US attack." (Kaku/Axelrod) Image

The new Senate Covid-origin report, primarily authored by biodefense ghoul Robert Kadlec, badly misrepresents the data on early circulation.
Kadlec, citing only to the WHO's meta-analysis of studies on early circulation excludes an Italian study included in the WHO report, which found 111/959 pre-pandemic blood samples positive for antibodies dating back to Sept. 2019. cdn.who.int/media/docs/def… ImageImage
This study had been the subject of some controversy, and the WHO report includes a footnote that the samples would be retested to confirm results. That follow-up study was published in Dec. 2021 and corroborated positive results dating back to Oct. 2019. pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35062265/ ImageImage

Someone who wishes to remain anonymous has provided me with a solid English translation of this letter, purportedly written by a former employee of the US-Thai military bio-lab AFRIMS. Please note that the authenticity of the letter cannot be verified. archive.org/details/afrims…
The letter opens with the author's purported background -- an idealistic AFRIMS worker grown jaded by the leadership's indifference to biosafety issues at the lab. The author claims that the onset of the Covid pandemic spurred them to speak out. Image
The letter alleges that the US enrolled children from Thailand and neighboring countries in a vaccine trial and collected blood samples from them, which were used in "virus experiments" without their consent and without Thai knowledge of the purpose of the experiment. Image
