Two Days to Be Silenced - Twitter Suspends Account Of Chinese Scientist Who Published Paper Alleging Covid Was Created In Wuhan Lab

"It was not immediately clear what justification Twitter had to suspend the scientist who, to the best of our knowledge, had just 4 tweets as of Tuesday morning none of which violated any stated Twitter policies, with the only relevant tweet being a link to her scientific paper co-written with three other Chinese scientists titled "Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route" which laid out why the Wuhan Institute of Virology had created the covid-19 virus.

While we appreciate that Twitter may have experienced pressure from either China, or the established scientist community, to silence Dr Yan for proposing a theory that flies in the face of everything that has been accepted as undisputed gospel - after all Twitter did just that to us - we are confident that by suspending her account, Jack Dorsey has only added more fuel to the fire of speculations that the covid virus was indeed manmade (not to mention countless other tangential conspiracy theories).

If Yan was wrong, why not just let other scientists respond in the open to the all too valid arguments presented in Dr. Yan's paper? Isn't that what "science" is all about? Why just shut her up?

Because if we have already crossed the tipping point when anyone who proposes an "inconvenient" explanation for an established "truth" has to be immediately censored, then there is little that can be done to salvage the disintegration of a society that once held freedom of speech as paramount."

    You know you're over the target when you start catching flak...

    I have been suspicious of this being a man-made disease since day 1. There was just too much evidence saying exactly that to ignore.

      Me too. But I have zero medical knowledge past Readers' Digest "I am Joe's lungs" level. That doesn't render me stupid though. There's too many "convenient" happenings. I believe that poor doctor.

    US Patent (US7220852B1) 5/22/2007
    Claims (1)
    Hide Dependent
    1. An isolated nucleic acid molecule consisting of the nucleotide sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO: 1.


    This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 60/465,927 filed Apr. 25, 2003, which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

    This invention was made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an agency of the United States Government. Therefore, the U.S. Government has certain rights in this invention.

    This invention relates to a newly isolated human coronavirus. More particularly, it relates to an isolated coronavirus genome, isolated coronavirus proteins, and isolated nucleic acid molecules encoding the same. The disclosure further relates to methods of detecting a severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus and compositions comprising immunogenic coronavirus compounds.


    There are hundreds of thousands of these patents filed and then left to expire for unpaid fees. My only suspicion is that the volume of patents may intentionally hide the one or few that are truly applicable to the development of the genome.
    The US code and Patent process clearly state that a naturally occurring genome cannot be patented. YET, due to my 2 1/2 years in an IP lawsuit, restrictions like these are mute until tried and adjudicated. Who wants to try anything of this type, especially as a competitor in the field, when reciprocity of non-trial facilitates all in uncontested pseudo-monopolies.

    I think she is right, and I am willing to go with her analysis. What to do then is the question. At a minimum I think we should willing cease buying stuff from china. Maybe even nationalize the investments they have in the USA.

    I saved you from one of emotion ventings this time. I deleted my three or four paragraphs that were all stuck together. It was like trying to take a sip out of a spitoon. By suspending just one side of everything, Twitter will eventually "suspend" itself, I for one will never use it. And Facebook, I'm about ready to suspend my account too.
