'Whistleblower' Claiming China Created Covid-19 Coronavirus Has Ties To Steve Bannon - 2020-09-17
Ultimately, before this paper can be taken seriously, it needs to go through formal scientific peer-review by reputable virologists, who can further dissect the evidence that's provided. During the peer-review process, reviewers may ask for more information and data to back the paper's claims. If the authors can't provide the information, the paper would have about as much credibility as a Tinder profile. You can say that you are really interesting and have moves like Jagger, but ultimately you have to prove on the dance floor that your moves aren't more like a vacuum bagger.
Even more interesting is that the four authors of the paper, Li-Meng Yan, Shu Kang, and Jie Guan, and Shanchang Hu, all have the Rule of Law Society and Rule of Law Foundation as their affiliation. That doesn't exactly sound like a virology lab or a scientific research center. Usually a virology lab will have the word "virus" or some other scientific term in its name.
So what exactly is this society or foundation? Well, if you go to the Rule of Law Society website, you'll find a video of the Steve Bannon (as opposed to a Steve Bannon) announcing the formation of the Rules of Law Society and standing next to the founder. Bannon, as you may recall, was a strategist for U.S. President Donald Trump. The society lists as its mission: "To expose corruption, obstruction, illegality, brutality, false imprisonment, excessive sentencing, harassment, and inhumanity pervasive in the political, legal, business and financial systems of China." Sounds like the society is not a fan of China.
