VII: Allegory of the Plague
For 18 months, I’ve been working to uncover the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as a member of the ad-hoc investigative team DRASTIC; during that time, I’ve researched several different facets of the mystery and read several thousand scientific articles [& ~150k pages of FOIA documents]. The emerging trend I’ve seen is that most of the various threads are starting to converge and flow in one main direction, and it’s time to stop pushing against the current simply to cover up the truth.
It’s time to step back, look at the big picture, and lay out the COVID origin case as it currently stands; one of the main reasons my publishing record has been fairly sparse since April is that I keep finding more and more evidence every day, and thus there’s never a good stopping point. However, it’s also way past time to provide a concise, cohesive narrative, so that awareness & momentum can build to begin holding our officials accountable for what’s occurred.
The majority of what follows is an abridged version of the arguments laid out in The Myth of the Blind Watchmaker, which is an entirely different [and far more comprehensive] document than the one I published as Part V of Gaslight of the Gods back in April [the livestream describing our most recent findings, from July 4th, can be found in two parts on Rumble: part I & part II]. The reason is because the volume of evidence is more substantial, and the potential implications are disturbing.
We don’t have to find the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to find the origin of the pandemic.
That argument may sound strange, but the point is that enough evidence already exists to show that Dr. Fauci and others took deliberate actions and made decisions that were in opposition to their statutory responsibilities. Furthermore, there are two reasons to start now, not after the next election:
[1st] - Sufficient evidence already exists to compel testimony to gain answers, and there’s no indication that Fauci et al will cooperate in any way without a subpoena.
[2nd] - More and more Americans will continue to suffer the effects of the pandemic every single day that vital information is withheld from the public.
None of the evidence that has emerged since I first described these four elements has undercut the assertions:
We can further condense the Watchmaker arguments down to:
A) We now know that they recognized how unnatural the SARS-CoV-2 virus looked, right from the start.
B) We now know why this would’ve been obvious to the NIAID’s Vaccine Research Center once they received the genome on 1/11/2020.
C) We know that they targeted specific aspects of the suspicious genome to suppress within the scientific debate.
D) The decisions to censor the FCS & the other HIV inserts had major & deleterious impacts upon the early spread of the virus and upon our current efforts to understand & fight “long COVID.”
The real questions that Congress, the media or other scientists should be asking at this point - 2 and a half years on - are why they censored these elements [and still are], and why they retained these elements in their vaccines.
What follows is a summary of the evidence for arguments A-D mentioned above. Those who’ve read the full document since its last iteration was published on May 28th may wish to skip ahead to the final section, “Gaslight of the Gods.”
1 week to slow the spread [of uncomfortable narratives]: 1/29/2020 – 2/4/2020
On January 31st, 2020, an 80-page book titled Analysis of Wuhan Coronavirus: Déjà vu was published as a free download on Amazon’s Kindle service. This was the first English-language publication to discuss the existence and implications of the FCS [the only prior reference was a Chinese research paper published as a pre-print on 1/21/2020 to the ChinaXiv server]. Gallaher’s first mention of the FCS came 2 days earlier, in a 1/29/2020 post on the Virology.org professional message board.
Also on January 31st, a 9-page scientific article titled “Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag” was uploaded to the pre-print server bioRxiv. The authors, a group of researchers from India, listed a set of 4 short segments they’d discovered within the then-2019-nCoV spike protein’s genome that matched portions of HIV-1 – the virus responsible for AIDS.
That same day, Trevor Bedford [an expert in viral evolutionary dynamics] began tweeting in response to the paper’s claims [pictured below], and Anthony Fauci and Jeremy Farrar called for an emergency teleconference to be held the next day – 2/1/2020, a Saturday – with leading scientists & public officials from four countries. By Monday afternoon [2/3/2020], a second teleconference had been held, with GOF-implicated scientists, Trevor Bedford, Anthony Fauci, Tom Inglesby, Gigi Gronvall and more attending at the request of Kelvin Droegemeier, the Presidential Science Advisor for President Trump and the director of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy; the stated purpose of the event was to “combat misinformation” surrounding the origin of the 2019-nCoV virus.
One of the speakers was David “Chris” Hassell, senior science advisor to Robert Kadlec, Assistant Secretary for Preparedness & Response [AS/PR] at the Department of Health & Human Services; Hassell was also the chair of the P3CO oversight committee created in 2017 to review gain-of-function research involving Potential Pandemic Pathogens. Together, this group reached the decision to construct a specific narrative, meant to silence any inquiries that might travel down a path that implicated many of the most prominent virologists and vaccinologists in the world.
“This is a tiny tiny sequence and in no way suggests engineering”
Trevor Bedford’s tweet [pictured above] of 2/1/2020 argued that “Insert 4 (QTNSPRRA) shares GTNS with the bat virus RaTG13, while PRRA represents unique material in #nCoV2019. This is a tiny tiny sequence and in no way suggests engineering.” It’s hard to overstate how disingenuous his statement was, especially since the internet archive shows that Bedford had been active on the message board during the period between Gallaher’s first post on 1/29/2020 and Bedford’s 2/1/2020 tweet.
The existence of the Furin Cleavage Site [FCS] couldn’t be suppressed, because its crucial role in increasing the infectiousness of respiratory pathogens was widely understood within the international scientific community. However, the existence of the FCS was not highlighted by any of the scientists or public health officials convened by Anthony Fauci and Jeremy Farrar on 2/1/20 until the final publication of “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2” on 3/17/2020 – in which the potentially unnatural origin of the FCS was roundly rejected, and its relevance for infectivity [as compared to the ACE2 receptor] was minimized:
Much of what has been done to combat the pandemic – especially here in the United States – has been the opposite of what would’ve been recommended, if all of the information available to Dr. Fauci by February 1st, 2020 been publicly known. Collateral damage from the decision to withhold this information can be grouped into 6 primary topics:
As a reminder, the detailed lists of questions/evidence under each topic [with copious links] are all found within the Watchmaker 2.0 document, and a complete set of references for the project are within the topical bibliography. I did want to provide a small sample of the questions, just to give you an idea of the concerns arising from the published evidence that I’ve found thus far, that demand answers:
II - Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions [NPI] & Early Treatments
*Why has the aerosol/airborne transmission of the virus been largely ignored by the WHO and most public health agencies?
*Why did Anthony Fauci, BARDA, AS/PR push Remdesivir but not other anti-viral drugs; specifically fusion inhibitors, which had been invented in the US and showed strong potential in 2 decades’ worth of in silico in vitro & in vivo studies on Class 1 viruses including HIV-1/2 and CoV’s?
*Robert Garry recently informed us that Vitamin D is critical for our T-Cell response, which is one of the bodily systems hit hardest during a severe COVID-19 infection. [Why didn’t Anthony Fauci et al ever recommend/include Vitamin D as a prophylactic/early treatment [or weight loss, exercise or healthier diets]]?
*Why was Bill Gallaher’s note on the Chinese use of chloroquine [to block the virus from using endosomal entry, especially in the lungs] during the Wuhan outbreak never specifically addressed?
*Why was Remdesivir targeted for approval for the treatment of late-stage COVID-19 infection, when its mechanism targets the virus itself – which has already inflicted its damage by that point in the infection? Ralph Baric & Mark Denison – who helped create and test it – reiterated this point in February 2020.
*Some have suggested that SARS-CoV-2 is a Live Attenuated Vaccine [LAV] reverting to its original form, something seen with LAV’s with Dengue Fever. However, that makes no sense – why would China need an antidote [fusion inhibitors] for a vaccine/vaccine trial?
-Gaslight of the Gods-
When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Sign of Four, 1890.
The purpose of my “Watchmaker” argument was to:
-highlight the elements of the SARS-CoV-2 genome that appeared unnatural
-highlight the fact that Fauci & other scientists recognized the inserts & understood their implications
-show that they specifically targeted the FCS and the HIV inserts for suppression/censorship
-show that they continue to target scientific and public awareness and discussion of these elements, despite the impact to studies on long COVID and the origin of the virus itself.
In recent weeks, I’ve discovered further damning evidence in support of the hypothesis - portions of which were discussed during my July 4th DRASTIC livestream with Dr. Jonathan Couey [part I & part II].
The first additional key point is that The FCS has been specifically left unchanged in most of the developed COVID-19 vaccines, despite decades of against the standard practice of viral vaccine design for flu, HIV, etc:
This image is from the YouTube video of one of the gain-of-function study sessions in December 2014 - the week before the GOF ban/pause went into effect. The person sitting next to Ralph Baric is Philip Dormitzer, who at that time was the head of the vaccine development section of the biopharmaceutical company Novartis; he moved to take the same role at Pfizer the next year. Thus, he was still there in early 2020 when the decision was made to retain the FCS.
Some readers may pause at this point, and wonder if perhaps retaining the FCS was a mistake - something that was simply missed in the shuffle?
Thankfully, Moderna & the NIAID’s Vaccine Research Center [VRC] explicitly stated this for the record:
It gets worse, however.
You see, I’ve been troubled by Fauci’s decision to stay quiet about the existence of the FCS for more than a year. However, after reading two dozen articles which describe the construction of vaccines for coronaviruses, HIV & the flu, I surveyed the methods used to prepare & neutralize a virus for safe use as prophylaxis. Thus far, I’ve gone through 26 studies of prototype vaccines and only found 2 in which the Furin Cleavage Site was kept, unchanged, for the final product.
Those two are the Moderna/VRC and Pfizer mRNA vaccines in use today:
I should note that all of the current prototypes being studied for future use [that I’ve come across thus far] have returned to the pre-pandemic method of removing or changing the FCS.
Why did they keep it - and why have they reversed course?
We need to know why - Now.
Lastly, there’s one more vital point that the public needs to understand - Dr. Fauci and a few other senior scientists knew instantly that the discovery of HIV spike inserts within the SAR-CoV-2 viral genome made it almost impossible for the virus to be natural.
The first part of the evidence is the FCS itself, because that 12nt segment is part of 1 of those 4 inserts first highlighted by Pradhan et al on 1/31/2020. It’s the part that unequivocally couldn’t have come from a recombination in nature [as Ah Khan Syed explained so clearly & concisely here]. I feel confident that the other 3.5 inserts are just as artificial, but it’s only necessary to prove that ANY part of the virus is unnatural to nullify the natural origin hypothesis.
The second part arose from my reading of those two dozen studies pictured above.*
[*and another 282 articles related to CoV/HIV spike homology, fusion peptides and their inhibition, and prion/amyloidogenesis, etc. over the last six months - most of which are already linked within tab 23 of my reference resource]
The inserts follow an ENV*3[or 4]+ GAG*1 conserved epitope/mosaic structure [the QTQTNS…PRRA|R being the book-end pieces from a typical GAG motif]. This construct is a type arising from one of the two main HIV vaccine designs currently employed, and the fact that they sit in the exact physical positions on the SARS-CoV-2 spike to be most accessible and antigenic makes their appearance within the genome “incompatible with expectations from nature.”
This would've been well understood by the WIV or the VRC to reflect tinkering with the genome - because mixing elements of HIV-1’s spike protein with CoV sequences and/or backbones [or vice versa] has been part of the VRC’s HIV-1/CoV vaccine research since at least 2006 [at least 2007 for the WIV, and at least as recently as 2018]:
-For a fuller explanation on this point, watch the July 4th livestream on Rumble [part I & part II].
In short, it’s time to ask Dr. Fauci why he chose to suppress/censor awareness of the FCS and the other HIV-like inserts. The former exacerbated the early spread of the pandemic, and the latter is almost certainly the main driver of the Long COVID that is emerging in a double-digit percentage of symptomatic COVID cases [especially Long COVID symptoms associated with autoimmune and amyloid-driven disorders].
That’s the true legacy of Anthony Fauci – the implications of censorship of Intelligent Design
These questions are valid regardless of who created the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or for what purpose it was created. The magnitude of their implications is such that simply refusing to answer them should itself be considered obstruction of justice.

Amazing compilation! Congratulations!
We now know beyond any issue of a doubt.
But still, they lie to us!
I commend the author for this work.
