China’s most famous defector to America warned US intelligence agencies a coronavirus was spreading in Wuhan in November 2019 – six weeks before China admitted there was an outbreak.

Wei Jingsheng, the father of China’s democracy movement, reveals in a new book, “What Really Happened in Wuhan,” that he first heard of a mysterious new virus at the time of the World Military Games in Wuhan in October 2019.

Highly alarmed, the former Chinese Communist Party insider, whose defection to the United States in 1997 made global news, alerted intelligence agencies, a US politician with links to the president and Chinese human rights activist Dimon Liu.

Defected in 1997. A long tome to keep in the loop of what’s happening there.

We need to know the truth. . .what they knew, who they told, and what did they do about the information.

“Defected in 1997. A long tome to keep in the loop of what’s happening there.”

I was just thinking that, maybe the book has details on how he is still in the Loop.

Good catch. Hopefully this book can assist a restart of mainstream knowledge re the battle with the CCP - - that the US is not fighting very well, if at all?

On September 12, 2019, the Wuhan Institute of virology suddenly deleted all its public databases on bat-derived SARS genomes

Just about 1-2 weeks later, and lasting until November, a private company Called E-Pai Odin analyzing data available to them, said that there was a total shut-down of cell-phone traffic around the lab - meaning no one was there.

Anyone in the U.S. with friends or family in China knew it was going around in December 2019.

The “defector” part makes it sound like this was some sort of state secret. Our State department knows nobody living in China?

From what I have read, at first the Chinese officials didn’t realize what they were dealing with. They thought people had the regular flu.

And then the Chinese New Year came around, lots of folks in Western Canada and the States went to visit their families, many who lived in Wuhan. They brought it back to North America when they returned home. At least that’s what I believe.

And yes, guns do equal freedom. Too bad the Aussies didn’t learn that in time.

Don’t forget that shoe factory in Italy, right in ski country. Chinese workers returned from Chinese New Year and the jet-set ski season was in full swing. Sure enough, Vail, Colorado became a hot spot. Just one of the many vectors. But PDJT was xenophobic for trying to stop inbound air traffic /spit

It was being widely discussed here in the first week of Dec 2019.

You see this is what pisses me off about our government, clearly we have the technology to have been aware of cell phone traffic and high resolution pictures etc. We know for sure it came from Wuhan, yet we are too cowardly to say so. I believe it's because we partially funded it and the Chinese, if attacked publicly would provide that detail.

Asked if he had any sense the intelligence agencies were taking seriously his intelligence about a new virus in Wuhan, 70-year-old Wei said:

“I felt they were not as heavily concerned as I was so I tried my best to provide more detailed information. They may not believe there is (a) government of a country that would do something like that (cover up a virus). So I kept repeating myself in an effort to try to persuade them.”..Wei said he was “very ­worried because … whichever way the Communist regime released this virus, I felt that the West is not prepared.”....Wei would not reveal which politician he told. “I’m not sure if this politician wants me to talk about him right here,” he said. “But I want to say he is a high enough politician, high enough to be able to reach to the president of the United States.”

You are absolutely correct. The media is likely responsible for many deaths, IMO, by preventing Trump from getting the message out about available treatments and him, justifiably, trying to stop airliners from coming in with who knows what.

Let’s never forget that DJT is a New Yorker. Pretty sure he doesn’t want anything bad flying into American air space ever again.

Or, in 9/11, from American air space. Unfortunately. Thanks, GW! And to think I voted for him twice.

Since Joe Biden is POTUS now does that mean the source does adult day care?

Timing is about right. Italy was first big European outbreak, Nov-ish 2019. They had a large return of their new leather workers from Wuhan that month (Yes, they preferentially hired Chinese workers to replace aging Italian work force).
