“In the field of biological weapons, there is almost no prospect of detecting a pathogen until it has been used in an attack.” — Barton Gellman, author and journalist
“I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. We have definitely adopted the position at the Peace Conference of arguing in favour of the retention of gas as a permanent method of warfare. It is sheer affectation to lacerate a man with the poisonous fragment of a bursting shell and to boggle at making his eyes water by means of lachrymatory gas.” — Winston Churchill
“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent.” — J. Robert Oppenheimer, recalling in a 1965 documentary how he felt after watching the Trinity Test
Previously, I’ve mentioned how my mama used to read the Chicago Tribune to me after we ate dinner. She started my political education when I was four or five years old and sat me atop the pink Formica table to listen. I recall several articles, but one is easily remembered because my mother became so angry. She read a small paragraph in the back of the then conservative Tribune; this was 1950-1951. It stated that the government had sprayed a flu virus over the area where we lived to see how it traveled.
The American people have always been used as guinea pigs for the US government. And we still are!
From the Protective Altruism Forum by Thomas W., is the history of chemical and bacteriological experiments on American citizens. (Worth the full read!)
In September of 1950, a ship sailed by the Golden Gate Bridge. It carried a stockpile of Serratia marcescens bacteria, which it released in a huge plume over the city of San Francisco. Those onboard hoped to expose as many people as possible to the bacteria. Their mission was a success, and most of the city’s residents were exposed.
The ship was not operated by a hostile foreign government or terrorist operatives, but by the United States Navy. Though Serratia marcescens is a “simulant” bacterium not known to cause harm, the test showed the potential for attacks with more deadly forms of bacteria.  Despite the “benign” nature of the bacterium, Stanford University doctors reported several bizarre cases of urinary tract infections at the time, leading eventually to one death. The test was far from the only biological weapons test conducted in secrecy by the U.S. government from World War II until as late as 1968.
And 1968 wasn’t the end of the experiments, biological, chemical or medical.
Inside America’s Secret Biolabs written in 2015 by Alison Young and Nick Penzenstadler for USA Today, states:
Vials of bioterror bacteria have gone missing. Lab mice infected with deadly viruses have escaped, and wild rodents have been found making nests with research waste. Cattle infected in a university’s vaccine experiments were repeatedly sent to slaughter and their meat sold for human consumption. Gear meant to protect lab workers from lethal viruses such as Ebola and bird flu has failed, repeatedly.
Oversight of biological research labs is fragmented, often secretive and largely self-policing, the investigation found. And even when research facilities commit the most egregious safety or security breaches — as more than 100 labs have — federal regulators keep their names secret.
Of particular concern are mishaps occurring at institutions working with the world’s most dangerous pathogens in biosafety level 3 and 4 labs — the two highest levels of containment that have proliferated since the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001. Yet there is no publicly available list of these labs, and the scope of their research and safety records are largely unknown to most state health departments charged with responding to disease outbreaks. Even the federal government doesn’t know where they all are, the Government Accountability Office has warned for years.
And all those contrails. Why in the world are they constantly spraying us? Video link. Unless you grow vegetables in a greenhouse, the spraying actually kills the plants with a fungal rot that starts at the roots.
The investment into weapons of infectious diseases has been promulgated since WWII. The Wuhan National Institute of Virology (WIV) is nothing new. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) has openly admitted we have exactly the same thing in the United States and it is run by the Department of Defense (DoD).
We know the origins of C-19 were here at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Peter Daszak used scientific and professional connections to convince media and government officials of natural Covid-19 origins. He even secretly organized a statement in the prestigious medical journal, the Lancet, deeming the lab origin a “conspiracy theory.” Ralph Baric PhD, professor in the UNC epidemiology department was allowed to continue his “gain of function” work until it was transferred to the WIV with funding by the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) through Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance.
Since its inception in 1994, the Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD Center) has been at the forefront of research on the implications of same for U.S. security. Originally focusing on threats to the military, the WMD Center now also applies its expertise and body of research to the challenges of homeland security.
Biological and Chemical Weapons
The nuclear arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union was a prominent feature of the Cold War. A lesser known but equally dangerous element of the superpower competition involved biological weapons (BW), living microorganisms that cause fatal or incapacitating diseases in humans, animals, or plants. By the late 1960s, the United States and the Soviet Union had both acquired advanced BW capabilities.
The U.S. biological weapons complex, operated by the U.S. Army Chemical Corps, consisted of a research and development laboratory at Fort Detrick in Maryland, an open-air testing site at Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, and a production facility at Pine Bluff Arsenal in Arkansas that manufactured biological warfare agents and loaded them into bomblets, bombs, and spray tanks.
Soon after President Richard M. Nixon took office in January 1969, Members of Congress pressured the administration to clarify U.S. policies on the use of chemical and biological weapons (CBW), as there had been no comprehensive review of this issue in more than 15 years. Here is the chronology from 1969 to 1997.
Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird decided to address the series of controversies that had been swirling around the Army’s Chemical Biological Weapons (CBW) programs.
A number of highly publicized events had sparked controversy over chemical weapons (CW), which were closely associated with biological weapons in the public mind.
Dugway Proving Ground was established during WWII where the US Army had been conducting testing. In March 1968, an open-air test of the nerve agent VX had gone awry, causing the toxic cloud to drift off the test range and kill or injure more than 6,000 sheep in an adjacent grazing area. That test came to be called, “The Skull Valley Sheep Kill.” The farmers received remuneration for their losses, but an investigation by the US Army found that lethal chemical agents tested in Dugway on March 13, 1968, “may have” contributed to the sheep deaths.
Sound familiar? Remember Agent Orange in Vietnam?
The Army had also secretly been disposing of obsolete and leaking chemicals by transporting them by train across the country and then scuttling them at sea.
Ultimately, President Nixon’s decision to renounce the U.S. offensive biological weapons program culminated in his signing of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) on April 10, 1972, the same day as Iran.
In recognition of these dangers, he continued, the United States had decided to destroy its entire stockpile of biological agents and confine its future biological research program to defensive measures, such as vaccines and field detectors.
The Convention bans bioweapon agents, toxins, equipment and the means of delivery. However, The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological, Biological and Toxic Weapons does not ban biodefense weapons.
It is doubtful the signees of the convention truly stopped their research inasmuch as no one is tasked to oversee compliance and countries rarely keep the honor system.
China has accused us of having 336 bioweapon labs in 30 countries under U.S. control, including 26 in Ukraine. Just how many does China have?
Ohio Train Derailment, Chemical Spill and Fire
Ohio is rich Midwest farmland and is one of the states with a large number of organic farms. East Palestine, Ohio is also the home of over 30 meat processing plants. Close by in Columbus, Ohio is one of the largest heirloom seed companies.
I lived in Ohio for many years. It is a beautiful state, and part of our own breadbasket for America. Was it targeted? Was it planned? Interestingly enough, a movie with the same plot was filmed nearby only a year ago.
The latest chemical nightmare, after the Pfizer, Moderna and J&J poisons, is the Ohio train derailment. The toxins allowed in the air, water and soil have already killed birds, chickens, a man’s foxes and heaven knows how many pets and wildlife. The map shows the areas affected via air and water pollution.
For more information as to how deadly this derailment truly is to those in the area, please see The Conservative Treehouse articles here and here. There are videos within which show the total and complete devastation of what happened.
Sundance states, “In an Ohio town called East Palestine, a Norfolk Southern train pulling 150 cars derailed. 20 of those cars were carrying hazardous materials, including a liquified substance called ‘Vinyl Chloride.’”
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said on Monday, February 13th, that Norfolk Southern requested and was granted the controlled release of chemicals, including deadly vinyl chloride, following the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. Norfolk Southern, whose top shareholders include BlackRock and Vanguard, told the government how they wanted this disaster handled.
Isn’t it interesting that only 11 days before this tragic derailment, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) changed the toxicity for vinyl chloride?
The railroad and the EPA released the full list of chemicals that were being transported. Norfolk Southern did the “controlled breach” by starting the fires allegedly so the containers would not blow up. New footage has surfaced, in just a few days, of contaminated water in and around East Palestine, Ohio. Despite Governor DeWine’s statements reassuring Ohioans that the water is safe to drink, the chemical contamination is visible.
Here is the East Palestine Ohio Train Disaster in Numbers. The following is from JTrudels Substack page.
- 50 rail cars derailed on 3 February 23rd.
- 11 rail cars carried hazardous materials.
- 5 rail cars released Vinyl Chloride, a flammable, colorless liquified gas that causes liver, brain, and lung cancers.
- 28-degree Celsius/82-degree Fahrenheit is required for Vinyl Chloride to become slightly water soluble.
- One waterway was directly impacted, the Leslie Run. It feeds the Little Beaver Creek, a tributary to the Ohio River.
- One billion plus animals of varying types, livestock and wildlife, depend on these waterways for life.
- None of the waterway have ever hit a sustained 82 degrees F in human history.
- 3500 fish and aquatic animals have died in the Leslie Run in the past week.
- Almost all small livestock have died in East Palestine since Friday, 10 February 23, especially poultry.
- 4800 residents call East Palestine home.
- 94% of the residents are white
- 81% of the 74 million Americans who depend on the Ohio River and associated waterways including the Mississippi for water for themselves and/or their livestock are white.
- Zero FEMA officials have arrived in East Palestine as of 15 February 23.
Trudel states, “This does not appear to be an accident. It appears to be genocide.”
A good portion of Ohio may be ruined for decades. Link The people who lived in that town are most likely about to lose everything, including their health. Gov. DeWine told them it was safe to go home, but it obviously is not. DeWine should be forced to live out the remainder of his term in East Palestine, Ohio.
EPA Administrator, Michael Regan, who visited the town on Thursday the 16th, asked the people to “trust the government.”
Yeah right, in your dreams. President Reagan made a statement in the 1980s about “trusting the government.”
Has the EPA even checked the water, air or soil? The EPA is also telling everyone it’s fine to return home. The Environmental Protection Agency is more concerned about cow farts than the vinyl chloride poisoning of a third of America’s air, water and soil.
Where is FEMA to help these people and their animals?
Where is Biden? Out to lunch 24/7!
Trump decides he’ll visit East Palestine and all of a sudden FEMA says they’ll show up.
These families all need new homes, new places to live, health checks, and new vehicles. Where’s the federal funds to help them?
How about it President Trump? You can get donations to give enough to all of these families to rebuild in healthier environments that aren’t poisoned for the next century.
Glenn Beck interviewed a lady who lived there, and had a dog kennel and horses and had to evacuate all of them as well. Needless to say, any animals left behind didn’t make it. Crews conducted a “controlled spill” of these deadly chemicals. Controlled? Controlled to kill? How insane is that to release a poisonous chemical into water and ground and then set it on fire?
I’ve heard another take on this from veterans who have handled some of these dangerous chemicals.
One said, This looks more like gross stupidity (way too many hazardous cars on a single train) and greed. What was criminal was burying the damaged cars right in town without any attempt to decontaminate the entire wreck site and town. The Governor received mucho campaign money from Norfolk Southern. DeWine is complicit in that. He ordered that burn so Norfolk Southern could relay track to get other trains moving.
That incident was awful, but I’m skeptical that there’s going to be a mass “Die Off” of the entire NE US. There is much fear mongering going on, some very legitimate (especially for those near that town and along the Ohio River) wild speculation unsupported by hard data.
There have been half a dozen derailments and chemical burns in the last few weeks. Coincidence? Doubtful. I’m just reporting what I’ve read, heard and seen.
Pray for these people, and if there’s a collection for them, give what you can.
