Bill Gertz reveals China’s nefarious biowarfare campaign: ‘They’ve discovered 2000 new viruses’
Sara Carter was joined by China expert and national security reporter Bill Gertz on the “Sara Carter Show” podcast Thursday. Gertz discussed the origins of COVID-19 and revealed shocking information about China’s discovery of thousands of other viruses to Carter.
Slightly over a year ago, Gertz published a report in The Washington Times titled “Virus Linked to Wuhan Lab, Military Work at Wuhan Lab.” The article was based on an interview with a former Israeli military intelligence doctor who had studied the Chinese biological warfare program.
The former Israeli military intelligence doctor told Gertz during the interview that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is linked to the People’s Liberation Army, the Chinese military, and suggested that the coronavirus could have been leaked from that lab.
During this time, China was blaming the cause of the virus on an animal market in Wuhan, about five miles away from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to Gertz.
Gertz’s article, complete with the interview from the former Israeli military intelligence doctor, was labeled as a “debunked conspiracy theory” by USA Today and “false information” by Facebook. The article was then removed from The Washington Times‘ website.
Earlier this month, the State Department revealed information that confirmed the claims in Gertz’s article were true.
“Well, fast forward to January 15 of this month, and the State Department, in a very detailed fact sheet, revealed that yes, indeed, as I reported a year ago, the Wuhan Institute of virology is not only linked to the People’s Liberation Army, the Chinese military, but that they have been conducting secret biological warfare experiments at the laboratory since at least 2017,” Gertz told Carter.
More information continues to be released verifying the information in Gertz’s article, but Facebook has not removed the “false” label from his work.
“It’s been a battle but truth will out,” Gertz said. “I’m confident that when the dust settles on this, my story will be recognized as having been one of the first to say that this is one of the two paths that this pandemic began and the most likely path in my personal view for where the virus began.”
Gertz says that the Chinese Communist Party is controlling the media and we need to hold them accountable for their actions.
“If you look at our mainstream media today, there’s almost no mention of the fact that this virus came from China. And in fact, China’s narrative is that it didn’t come from China.”
“Chinese are spending billions of dollars annually to influence the United States,” Gertz said. “And how do they do that? On the on the media front, they control a lot of the media, by access to China. Any major news organization that wants to have a bureau in China will have to be compliant with Chinese narratives … We’re now suffering the consequences of this, because they have also exploited the business community by saying, if you want to do business in China, not only do you have to go along with us, but you have to actually lobby the U.S. government and the U.S. public to support our policies.”
“How do we get this information out and in people’s consciousness?” Gertz questioned. “How do we get our leadership and our lawmakers and our and our other government people to do something about it?”
Gertz is concerned about the Biden administration’s involvement.
“The Biden administration, I’m very much afraid that they’re going to cover up what China has, has done and is doing.”
“Joe Biden ran for President on the fact that he criticized the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic. And then what did he do? He hired Anthony Fauci, who is leading that pandemic effort. So that just shows the level of hypocrisy now in government is at very high levels,” Gertz said.
“The Trump administration was battling the bureaucracy, both the intelligence and the political bureaucracy, at state and other agencies. They wanted to release all of this information,” Gertz said.
Gertz told Carter he talked to intelligence officials within the Trump administration who revealed to him that the Chinese biological warfare program is focusing on developing ethnically targeted weapons that can kill or disable specific ethnic groups.
According to Gertz’s reports, China has bragged publicly that they have discovered 2,000 new viruses.
“Not all of them are bad coronaviruses. There are other animal viruses as well, but they’ve discovered 2000 new viruses,” Gertz said. “So China is obsessed with viruses. And this is a clear indication that they and they’ve and they’ve had lab leaks in the past.”
Gertz is shocked that the information he has been uncovering is not getting more attention in the media.
“The fact that our media and our government is not demanding a full accounting of all the research, all the notes, all the researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Neurology is criminal,” Gertz said.
“The Chinese government is a nuclear-armed communist dictatorship, a genocidal regime, and they are responsible for the destruction that we’re seeing around the world economic and human, and they need to be held accountable,” Gertz added.
“We’re battling for our country, and we’re battling for our freedom. China’s in the background, they’re fueling it, they want to see the United States decline and ultimately destroyed.”
