CovIDIOTS are the result of the dumbing down of population, due to the increased cost of education; and social media giving NUTJOB a platform, especially when the President of the United States is a major conspiracy theories pumper.

Bill Gates said back in 2017 that a HIV vaccine will be here in 3 years. ENTER Coronavirus 2020. Luc Montagnier, French Nobel prize winner, amongst others said Coronavirus was created in a lab and has 4 strands of HIV in it and that he reckons it was made to create a HIV vaccine.

what is the "trace" of genetic edition? people should to know how gen editing is done, and how it leaves traces.

Jan Oliver says:

To many people bury their head in the sand and believe the government is always right. Gates applied for the corona vaccine in I believe 2014 or 2015 and received it in 2018. Dr. Fauci said in 2017 that another pandemic was coming. Obama said in 2015 that the next president would have a surprise pandemic. How did they know? Experts can't even predict the stock market 2 days ahead. There is something to what is going on, and it isn't good.

Mike B says:

Many conspiracy theories have with history been proven not to be theories. These theories usually start because governments do not always tell the truth
