“There is always the threat of biological warfare or of an accidental escape of lethal agents from a biological warfare laboratory or, conceivably, from a laboratory engaged in genetic engineering experiments … Biological warfare laboratories are potential sources of a manmade “solution” to the population explosion.” — Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, co-authored by President Obama’s Science Czar John P. Holdren

Eleven days before President Trump’s January 20, 2017 inauguration, the Obama-Biden White House and President Barack Obama’s and Vice President Joseph Biden’s Science Czar John Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), officially recommended that the U.S. government lift restrictions on ‘gain-of-function’ research that “enhance[s] a pathogen’s virulence and/or transmissibility to produce a potential pandemic pathogen (an enhanced PPP).”

Holdren is the co-author of the 1973 book Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions that called for the dismantling of Western economies to enable wealth redistribution to foreign countries (such as China). Holdren is also the co-author of the 1977 anti-human book Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment that presented methods for implementing massive-scale human population reduction measures such as adding reproductive sterilization agents to food and water supplies and enacting forced abortions in the United States.
The U.S. government’s restriction on gain-of-function research was put in place in 2014 after alarmed scientists warned federal officials that experiments with advanced genetic manipulation gain-of-function techniques used to intentionally make viruses more pathogenic and transmissible to humans could lead to a laboratory accident and an uncontrollable pandemic.
Obama’s and Holdren’s decision to issue a reckless and dangerous federal recommendation to lift the restriction on funding dangerous, indeed lethal, gain-of-function research and Obama’s and Holdren’s decision to issue that guidance during the final days of the presidential transition from the Obama administration to the Trump administration set the Trump administration up for a potential pandemic. And that is exactly what happened.
Obama and Holdren had to have understood the danger of what they were doing and purposely exploited it with complete disregard for the health and safety of the American people and others around the globe.
The Obama-Biden White House, Science Czar Holdren, And Health And Human Services (HHS) Director Burwell Recklessly Recommended Lifting Ban On Gain-Of-Function Research 11 Days Before President Trump’s Inauguration; Holdren Books Pushed Population Control, Burwell Worked For Bill Gates
The “Recommended Policy Guidance for Potential Pandemic Pathogen Care and Oversight” issued on January 9, 2017 by the Obama-Biden White House and Holdren’s OSTP stated that “Issuance of this policy guidance concludes the deliberative process launched in October 2014 by OSTP and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).”
Obama-Biden Administration’s HHS Director on January 9, 2017, when Obama-Biden White House and Holdren’s OSTP recommended lifting the U.S. government prohibition on gain-of-function research was Sylvia Matthews Burwell, “former President of the Global Development Program and Chief Operating Officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,” according to the Obama White House.
After President Trump became President, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s boss, National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins, carried out Hodren’s official advice, issued by Holdren during the final days of the Obama-Biden Administration, to end restrictions on lethal gain-of-function research.
In the United States, the peaceful transition of power between outgoing and incoming presidential administrations is formalized by the Presidential Transition Act of 1963.
The presidential transition process includes both classified and non-classified briefings to help bring the incoming President and staff up to speed on information critical to national security, the economy, science, and public health.
However, according to U.S. Army Colonel Dr. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.), President Trump was never alerted that the U.S. government’s restriction on lethal gain-of-function research had been lifted by Collins, who was adhering to guidance from Obama, Biden, Holdren, and Burwell.
If Holdren, Obama, and Biden knew that they had lifted the ban on gain-of-function research and intentionally withheld that information from the incoming Trump administration in order to set Trump up, that would implicate Obama and Holdren.
The lame-duck Obama-Biden Administration White House revealed the last-minute recommendation by Holdren’s OSTP to lift the restrictions on gain-of-function research in a January 9, 2017 announcement titled “Recommended Policy Guidance for Potential Pandemic Pathogen Care and Oversight.”
The new guidance released on January 9, 2017 by the Obama-Biden Administration and John P. Holdren’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) states:
Agencies that adopt a review mechanism consistent with the provisions specified below will have satisfied the requirements for lifting that agency’s moratorium on certain gain-of-function research consistent with the October 17, 2014 statement “U.S. Government Gain-of-Function Deliberative Process and Research Funding Pause on Selected Gain-of-Function Research Involving Influenza, MERS, and SARS Viruses.”
On December 19, 2017, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), specifically in response to the guidance released on January 9, 2017 by the Barack Obama Administration via Holdren’s OSTP, published NIH’s “Notice Announcing the Removal of the Funding Pause for Gain-of-Function Research Projects.”
Since 2009, the NIH has been directed by Dr. Francis Collins. President Obama nominated Francis for the position.
The NIH is the parent institute of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), directed by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In other words, Obama’s OSTP Director John P. Holdren, who co-authored the 1973 book Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions that called for the dismantling of Western economies for wealth distribution to foreign countries and who co-authored the 1977 book Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment in which Holdren advocated for adding sterilants to food and water supplies and enacting forced abortions as population control measures, issued new guidance 11 days before President Trump’s inauguration recommending an end to the prohibition on lethal gain-of-function research, guidance that NIH Director Francis Collins subsequently acted upon on December 19, 2017, opening the door for Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID to resume funding via EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) of the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab where gain-of-function research was carried out.
John P. Holdren’s life-long dream of reducing the human population was manifested through the highly pathogenic SARS CoV-2 virus that Holdren allowed to emerge. Thanks to Collins’ decision to follow Obama’s and Holdren’s doomsday recommendation to lift restrictions on genocidal gain-of-function research, 599,796 Americans have been killed. The true number of global deaths is estimated to be 6.9 million, far above the “official” number of 3,805,657.
Barack Obama’s and Joe Biden’s Science Czar John Holdren will enter the history books alongside the likes of Joseph Stalin’s Soviet agricultural scientist Trofim Lysenko, who starved millions of Soviets, Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi chemical weapons scientist Dr. Amir al-Saadi, who was involved in the 1988 Halabja chemical weapons genocide during which Saddam gassed tens of thousands his own people, and Hitler’s Nazi scientist Josef Mengele, who conducted horrific medical experiments on concentration camp prisoners.
Chilling Excerpt From The 1977 Book Ecoscience, Co-authored By Obama-Biden White House Science Czar John P. Holdren
According to the 1977 book Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, co-authored by the Obama-Biden White House Science Czar John P. Holdren:
As if the threat of a natural pandemic were not gruesome enough, there is always the threat of biological warfare or of an accidental escape of lethal agents from a biological warfare laboratory or, conceivably, from a laboratory engaged in genetic engineering experiments (see material on recombinant DNA research in Chapter 14). Although most laypeople have long been afraid of thermonuclear war, they are just beginning to grasp the colossal hazard posed by chemical and biological warfare (CBW). Any country with one or two well-trained microbiologists and even a modest budget can build its own biological doomsday weapons. Constructing lethal viruses against which there is little or no resistance in human populations can easily be done in theory; it may already have been done in practice. There were at one time rumors of the development by the American CBW establishment of a pneumonic rabies, one that, instead of being transmitted by bite, is transmitted in the same way as the common cold: from person to person via exhaled droplets. This is certainly possible, since under special conditions (such as those that sometimes occur in caves full of rabid rats) rabies appears to have been transmitted through the air. Such a disease would be a disastrously effective weapon if it were transmitted by infected individuals before symptoms appear, since once they do appear, rabies is (with one notable recent exception) 100 percent fatal. Other possibilities for lethal agents are many — for example, anthrax, which even in its “natural” state can be transmitted by contaminated aerosols, plague, tularemia, Q-fever, and encephalitis, to name a few 231 — disseminated in their natural forms or in the form of special “hot” strains that are drug-resistant or super lethal. Besides direct assaults on human beings, overt or covert attacks on a nation’s food supply might be made by introducing plant diseases. The more crowded a population is, and the smaller its per-capita food supplies, the better a target it would be for a biological warfare attack
Why would nations develop such weapons? For the same reason they develop others. They hope to immunize or otherwise protect their own populations and thus avoid a biological backlash. These weapons have a special appeal for small and poor powers, which see themselves threatened by larger, richer ones and which lack the funds or the expertise to develop nuclear weapons.
Chemical-biological weapons may never be used, but that does not rule out the possibility of an accident. Virus laboratories, especially, are notoriously unsafe. By 1967, some 2700 laboratory workers had become accidentally infected with viruses transmitted by insects, and 107 had died.
Their deaths were caused by just one group of viruses. Fatal accidents occur in laboratories where work is done on other kinds of viruses, as well as other microorganisms. The inability of government CBW agencies to avoid accidents was made clear by the Skull Valley, Utah, CBW disaster of 1968, in which many thousands of sheep were poisoned when a chemical agent “escaped,” and by the possible escape of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis from the Dugway, Utah, proving ground in 1967. Congressman Richard D. McCarthy of New York announced in 1969 that CBW agents were being transported around the country in small containers on commercial airliners!
In 1969, President Nixon announced the unilateral renunciation by the United States of the use of biological warfare, even in retaliation. He directed that the stocks of biological agents be destroyed and that further work on defenses against biological weapons be transferred from the Department of Defense to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Destruction of U.S. biological warfare materials was systematically carried out in 1970 and 1971, although in 1975 it was discovered that the Central Intelligence Agency had not destroyed some toxins in its possession.
Some level of research might be continuing clandestinely in the United States (although the possibility seems remote), and it would be a simple matter for a future administration quickly to reestablish biological warfare capability. Indeed, with the rapidly increasing ability of biologists to manipulate the genetics of microorganisms, the possibilities for creating deadly agents seem endless. Furthermore, there is little sign that the U.S. action has led to the end of work on biological weapons elsewhere. Biological warfare laboratories are potential sources of a manmade “solution” to the population explosion. It is essential that some way be found to block all further work on biological weapons -the risk for humanity is simply too great.
This is the sequence of events leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic that tracks directly back to Barack Hussein Obama and John P. Holdren.
The Obama Administration had paused funding of gain-of-function research on October 17, 2014. So why did the Obama administration suddenly lift that ban on January 9, 2017, only days before President Trump’s inauguration?
President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani tweeted on April 26, “Why did the US (NIH) in 2017 give $3.7m to the Wuhan Lab in China? Such grants were prohibited in 2014. Did Pres. Obama grant an exception?”
‘Gain-of-function’ research conducted at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology, a Biosafety Level 4 (BSL) laboratory connected to China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) military biowarfare programs and funded by Dr. Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance charity, is the origin of the SARS CoV-2 virus that caused the Coronavirus Pandemic, according to the leading theory of the pandemic’s origin, supported by overwhelming circumstantial evidence, U.S. intelligence officials, and Chinese scientists-turned whistleblowers.
Holdren’s book “Ecoscience” and Daszak’s charity EcoHealth Alliance are both interested in viruses from small mammals in caves that can infect humans via airborne transmission.
The president of EcoHealth Alliance is British-born scientist Dr. Peter Daszak.
- John P. Holdren co-authored a 1973 book titled Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.
In that book, Holdren, in the words of the pro-life Population Research Institute:
argued that the West should be “de-developed,” by which they meant that countries like the U.S. should have their economies deliberately dismantled and their wealth redistributed to the poor at home and abroad…
..But their big push was for population control…the authors strongly argued for legalizing abortion as a population control measure…
…Holdren apparently agrees with the Princeton University “ethicist” that infants up to the age of two or so are not really human beings, and so can be eliminated without qualms.
- In his 1977 book titled Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, Holdren advocated adding sterilants to food and water supplies and enacting forced abortions as population control measures:
Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock…
…Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.
Obama’s HHS Secretary Slyvia Matthews Burwell, Who Together With Holdren Developed The January 9, 2017 Guidance To Lift Restrictions On Gain-Of-Function Research, Was COO Of The Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation And Searched The Office And Trash Of Vince Foster On The Night Foster Died
President Obama and HHS Secretary Burwell at CDC headquarters in Atlanta during the 2014 Ebola virus outbreak.
HHS Secretary Burwell was “former President of the Global Development Program and Chief Operating Officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,” according to the Obama-Biden White House.
HHS Secretary Burwell “was involved in searching Vince Foster’s office following his death,” according to Politico.
“Members [of the Senate committee investigating the Whitewater affair] questioned Sylvia Mathews, a former White House aide, in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died,” the New York Times reported.
Susan Desmond-Hellman, Senior Advisor and Board member of the Bill & Melinda Gates Medical Research Institute and Former Chief Executive Officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation from 2014 until 2020, meeting in May 2019 with Sylvia Matthews Burwell, former Obama administration HHS secretary and former Chief Operating Officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Susan Desmond-Hellman currently sits on the board of directors of COVID-19 vaccine manufacturer Pfizer.
When Burwell was President Obama’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget in 2013, she shut down the entire U.S. government, including the National Park System.
“A single person shut down the entire U.S. government for the first time in 17 years. Not a congressman, but an unelected woman named Sylvia Burwell,” NBC News reported at the time.
Burwell and John Podesta served side-by-side as Deputy Chiefs of Staff to President Bill Clinton’s White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles.
Both Dr. John P. Holdren and disease ecologist Dr. Peter Daszak gave presentations at the Institute on Science for Global Policy (ISGP) 2012 conference “Emerging and Persistent Infectious Diseases: Focus on the Societal and Economic Context.”
Holdren Attacked Scientists Who Challenged ‘Hockey Stick’ Climate Change Model, Email Leaked During ‘Climategate’ Scandal Revealed
John Holdren attacks scientists who don’t agree with his views.
Holdren has developed a reputation for lashing out against members of the scientific community who challenge the theory of man-made climate change.
In a 2003 email leaked during the University of East Anglia ‘Climategate’ scandal in which scientists were caught manipulating data, Holdren called Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics scientists Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas “amateurs” and dismissed their findings on historical climate change as “flawed.”
According to a 2003 scientific paper by Soon and Baliunas published in the journal Climate Research, “Across the world, many records reveal that the 20th century is probably not the warmest or a uniquely extreme climatic period of the last millennium’ and ‘Overall, the 20th century does not contain the warmest anomaly of the past millennium in most of the proxy records which have been sampled world-wide.”
Michael Mann and other promoters of the “hockey stick” graph not only attacked Soon and Baliunas, but also tried to discredit the Climate Change journal that published their paper.
Holdren is the Teresa and John Heinz Professor of Environmental Policy at Harvard. Teresa Heinz is married to Joe Biden’s ‘climate czar’ John Kerry.
Holdren had previously written about the dangers of bioweapons laboratories.
The Washington Post wrote in a May 29, 2004 article titled “SARS Cases in Asia Show Labs’ Risks”:
Scientists still do not fully understand exactly where or how SARS emerged 18 months ago. But it is now clear that the most threatening source of the deadly virus today may be places they know intimately — their own laboratories.
The recent announcement of nine cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome linked to China’s National Institute of Virology brings to three the number of lab outbreaks of the disease in the past eight months…
…The biggest disease outbreak that may have arisen from a laboratory was the mini-pandemic of “Russian flu” in 1977 and 1978.
The Russian Flu originated in Tientsin, China in May 1977, according to the Post.
The 1977 Russian Flu killed approximately 700,000 people worldwide.
The 1977 strain of the Russian Flu virus had a genetic fingerprint that was virtually indistinguishable from the strain that sickened people in 1950, leading numerous scientists to conclude that the 1950 Russian Flu strain escaped from a Chinese laboratory in 1977, the Post noted.
Why then would the Obama-Biden White House and Holdren recommend that the U.S. government lift the restriction on gain-of-function research?
Considering China’s history of laboratory leaks of dangerous viruses including the Russian Flu and SARS, why did China have a Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory (the Wuhan Institute of Virology) at all? And why was the United States government funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology?
Former Obama-Biden Administration officials, including John Holdren, Sylvia Burwell, Francis Collins, and Anthony Fauci must answer these questions.
John Holdren’s life-long fascination with human population control is critical to understanding why he recommended lifting the U.S. government’s restriction on lethal gain-of-function research.
At what point does a scientist become a monster?
