I'm here at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
I'm doing citizen journalism for Rebel News. That means asking real questions that people care about.
Which is very different from what the regime media here are doing.
You know who I mean: the "official" media, sometimes called the mainstream media. They're all here to get their marching orders from the WEF, to get the new narrative for 2023.
There are plenty of regime journalists here. But not a lot of citizen journalists.
I bumped into one regime journalist named Patrick Allen, a vice president of CNBC. That's a new channel owned by Comcast — a vast conglomerate worth more than $160 billion.
And — surprise! — Comcast is an official member of the World Economic Forum. (So is Patrick Allen, actually.)
Do you see how this works?
So instead of asking questions of the globalist elites, CNBC was really just an official promoter of the globalist elites. Comcast paid for them to be there — hundreds of thousands of dollars, to get an official WEF pavilion.
So I asked Patrick Allen about that. I mean, how can you report on the WEF if you're part of the WEF?
WATCH & SHARE what happened next:
At first, Allen was just rude and threatened to have me "escorted off by security".
But when he thought I couldn't hear him, he went further, didn't he?
"This guy is going to get punched out... for taking pictures."
That's a pretty crazy thing for a journalist to say.
But like I say: Patrick Allen and CNBC aren't really journalists anymore, are they? They're just WEF insiders with a press pass.
PS There are a lot of Patrick Allens here. Not many citizen journalists, though — but I'm here with a great Rebel News team asking the questions the Patrick Allens won't. If you think our work here is valuable, please help us out by chipping in to our economy-class travel here.
PPS We're here all week — me, Ezra Levant from Canada, Callum Smiles from the UK, and even our special guest, Calvin Robinson, from the UK. You can see all of our videos at www.WEFReports.com.
When did Moderna start developing its COVID-19 vaccine? Moderna’s CEO Stephane Bancel already made headlines at World Economic Forum’s (WEF) elitist Davos 2023 conference by saying he wants an mRNA vaccine factory on every continent and by confirming his negotiations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to bring Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines to China. But there’s more: Bancel admitted on CNBC at Davos that Moderna was already working on a COVID-19 vaccine in January 2020 before the virus had reached most countries and before it even had a specific name.
Bancel went on CNBC at Davos to discuss a new Moderna RSV vaccine. But something far more interesting slipped out. “I’d like to go back,” the CNBC host said excitedly. “‘Cause the last time we were here in Davos in the winter it was January 2020, and I saw you at that point, and we were at a breakfast.”
Bancel smiled. “I remember.”
The CNBC host continued enthusiastically, “You came up to me in this small room and you were talking about how you had actually the — you were working on a vaccine for — for COVID. And at that point COVID-19 didn’t even really exist in our minds.”
Bancel, still smiling, tacitly confirmed the story by agreeing, “I think there was no name at that time.” So Moderna was somehow developing a vaccine for an unnamed virus before it reached most countries outside China?
According to the CDC, COVID-19 first surfaced in December 2019 but was not even identified officially as a potential SARS virus until Jan. 1, 2020. So how was Moderna making a vaccine for that still unidentified virus that same month? I know very little about how vaccines targeting viruses are developed, but I’m pretty sure viral sequencing is required. In fact, viral sequencing is how a new virus is identified. WebMD explained in a medically-reviewed piece:
Genome sequencing is how scientists found this new human coronavirus [COVID-19] soon after it popped up in people. At first, what they knew was that people in China were suddenly getting sick with respiratory symptoms. So scientists sequenced the genome of a viral sample from a person who worked at a market where they thought it might have come from. By comparing the RNA sequence to other viral genome sequences they had from earlier studies, they could tell right away that it was a coronavirus they hadn’t seen in people before.
If WebMD is right, Moderna had already sequenced and identified COVID-19 or received that sequencing from someone else and begun its vaccine production before the virus had an official name. Add to that the question — where did Moderna get the virus samples or sequencing from? From the CCP? And did Moderna start working on the vaccine in January, or had it already started in late 2019 before the world supposedly knew anything definite about the virus? Something about this vague timeline is awfully fishy.
I’m no scientist, but Bancel and CNBC seem to have accidentally raised a lot of important questions that need answering.
"Genome sequencing is how scientists found this new human coronavirus [COVID-19] soon after it popped up in people. At first, what they knew was that people in China were suddenly getting sick with respiratory symptoms.

Like every new strain of cold virus before it....it was 2020's cold, and like all colds before it, not the same as each other, but colds none the less, and not seen in humans before, like all of them,most years, .....you gotta love the omission of sobering reassuring reality and the cherry picking for fear. It's a war of words.
I mean the Chinese never got sick with respiratory problems before covid? They "suddenly" caught the cold going around like they did every year previous. But this cold made you act out very poorly, and laughably, dying in the street...
