‘People Are Going To Be Shocked’: Bannon Claims Wuhan Lab Employees Have Defected, Are Working With FBI

“The thing was built with French help, so don’t think that there aren’t some monitoring devices in there…”

One day after a report that a respected Chinese virologist fled Hong Kong to accuse Beijing of a COVID cover-up, former Trump strategist Steve Bannon told the Daily Mail that scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other labs have defected to the West and are “turning over evidence” against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for their role in the COVID-19 pandemic which has claimed over 560,000 lives worldwide since last December.

People are going to be shocked,” Bannon told the  Mail (“from a yacht off the East coast of America,” the Mail would like us to know).

The 66-year-old then said that defectors are cooperating with intelligence agencies in America, Europe and the UK, which have been assembling evidence to challenge the CCP claim that the pandemic originated in a wet market – not in a lab home to scientists who have come under fire for manipulating bat coronavirus to be more transmissible to humans.

“I think that they [spy agencies] have electronic intelligence, and that they have done a full inventory of who has provided access to that lab. I think they have very compelling evidence. And there have also been defectors,” he said. “People around these labs have been leaving China and Hong Kong since mid-February. [US intelligence] along with MI5 and MI6 are trying to build a very thorough legal case, which may take a long time. It’s not like James Bond.”

Mr Bannon even suggested that the French government, which helped to build the institute, had left behind monitoring systems after Beijing shut them out of the project before it opened in 2017. –Daily Mail

The thing was built with French help, so don’t think that there aren’t some monitoring devices in there. I think what you are going to find out is that these guys were doing experiments which they weren’t fully authorized [for] or knew what they were doing and that somehow, either through an inadvertent mistake, or on a lab technician, one of these things got out,” Bannon continued. “It’s not that hard for these viruses to get out. That is why these labs are so dangerous.”

“You essentially had a biological Chernobyl in Wuhan, but the center of gravity, the Ground Zero, was around the Wuhan lab, in terms of the casualty rates. And like Chernobyl, you also had the cover-up – the state apparatus reports to itself and just protects itself.”

Mr Bannon, who has close links to Guo Wengui, an exiled Chinese billionaire, told this newspaper: ‘Regardless of whether it came out of the market or the Wuhan lab, the Chinese Communist party’s subsequent decisions hold them guilty of pre-meditated murder.

‘We know this because Taiwan formally informed the WHO on December 31 that there was some sort of epidemic coming out of Hubei province [where Wuhan is]. The CDC in Beijing was informed on January 2 or 3, and they decided to withhold that information and then sign a trade deal [with the US on January 15].

If they had been straightforward and truthful in the last week of December, 95 per cent of the lives lost and the economic carnage would have been contained. –Daily Mail

Bannon continues:

“That is the tragedy here. They used the time to scoop up all the world’s personal protective equipment. This is a murderous dictatorship. The blood is [also] on the hands of the world’s corporations – the investment banks, the hedge funds and the pension funds – and it is time to start calling it out before it leads to the destruction of the West,” Bannon elaborated. “We are in the most extraordinary crisis in modern American history, more than Vietnam, the Cold War, even the Second World War. A global pandemic and an economic inferno. I have no faith in the WHO, the leadership should face criminal charges and be shut down.”

One has to wonder if China will respond with whistleblowers from Ft. Detrick to support their narrative?

You mean like the hyper bogus HK-Virologist article ypu published, which is absolut anti-China-bashing-popaganda. Here are the so called facts: https://aftershock.news/?q=node/885941 > A virologist who fled from Hong Kong to the USA told the “truth” about COVID-19  https: // ria.ru/20200712 / 1574226618. html Yes, this is obvious and predictable by Rodchenkov. To fine touches. He was expected. Let’s go over with a brief analysis of this text (there is a question for RIA – can you somehow more explicitly write that this is not a RIA text, but a slightly loose translation of the text from FoxNews by Inosmi.ru?) – https: // inosmi.ru… Read more »

I’ve forgotten you’re really into it now, using false stuff to underline your agenda. This is not the first time. You’re becoming more and more fake, and so lazy concerning the research of factual developments. Wow!! I lost all professional respect for this outlet and the ongoing edition of rather pseudo-expert-insight-views by those sitting ‘lame ducks’ regarding your YT-Channel.

Bannon is to China as Schiff is to Russia.

Just curious but how’s he explain Spain identifying coronavirus in its sewer samples from March of 2019?

Bannon is a propagandist seeding new storylines where ever and when ever he appears, which is not random.

As to the Spanish sewer samples:

“Spanish virologists have found traces…

… There was the potential for a false positive due to the virus’ similarities with other respiratory infections.

… Prof. Gertjan Medema of the KWR Water Research Institute in the Netherlands, whose team began using a coronavirus test on waste water in February, suggested the Barcelona group needs to repeat the tests to confirm it is really the SARS-CoV-2 virus.”

That certainly may be. However, it has become rudimentary behavior to assume anything coming from western sources about their self-declared nemeses, is bullshit until proven otherwise, and no need to hold your breath.

Why, just today I tuned into PBS and heard yet another chameleon casually referring to the Russian hack of Clinton’s e-mails as hard fact, buried within some other cockamamie commentary. I don’t know if America’s entered the Twilight Zone or decided to buy season’s tickets to a Stalin or Hitleresque burlesque show. Seems to be comfortable with any of them.

Just curious, aren’t you contradicting yourself? It is all BS until proven otherwise, but then a commentator on PBS cites it as gospel… I’d say the rudimentary behavior is to actually believe EVERYTHING coming from western sources, no need for proof. Not just in America.

Also, do you mean nemeses declared as such by the western sources rather than self-declared nemeses, which implies each nemesis declared themselves as such?

No contradiction that I can see. It’s rudimentary behavior for the ‘opposition to insanity’ crowd, not for the mainstream.

It’s pretty clear I think that the self-declared nemeses means those westerners who self-declare a nemesis, intending it is a creation of convenience for them.

But I see your points.

Dear Mr. Bannon;

I received a box of 50 masks straight from China and bought through Amazon. Two of the masks had defective elastic bands that snapped at the weld point as soon as I used them. Can you help me sue China for attempted murder, pain and suffering, monetary loss and psychological trauma? Thank you in advance.

Empire USA has spent more money developing offensive biological weapons than all other nations combined, an amount exceeding $100 billion, according to the professor-lawyer who authored the UN law that abolished biological weapons.

To make a common sexist analogy, it’s the job of the agenda-compliant media to keep the public barefoot and pregnant, (with the latest agitprop. (agitated and propagandized)).

It’s an old story but has now gone beyond all rational limits. A bubble about to burst, in one way or another.
