MORE EVIDENCE: U.S. biotech company Metabiota links biolabs in Africa and Ukraine to the Pentagon’s DTRA

Monday, March 21, 2022 by: Ethan Huff

(Natural News) It is now undeniably clear that the United States was heavily involved in developing and managing biolabs throughout Ukraine, and that this could be the primary focus of the Russian invasion. We also now know that a U.S.-based biotechnology company called Metobiota is connected to the scheme.

Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, a Bulgarian journalist, outed Metabiota in a lengthy 2019 article, explaining that the company is a main player in the Ukrainian labs.

“It’s a company that tracks the trajectory of outbreaks and sells pandemic insurance, but also seems to have its hand in the actual labs that, as we painfully learned the past two years, might be the source of some of these outbreaks,” says David Horowitz.

As a background, biowarfare scientists, using diplomatic cover, have been testing man-made viruses at Pentagon-run laboratories located in some 25 countries around the world.

Three of these biolabs are directly funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) under a $2.1 billion military program called the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program, or CBEP. These are located in former Soviet Union countries such as Georgia and Ukraine, as well as in the Middle East, South East Asia and Africa.

It turns out that DTRA has outsourced much of the work that takes place at these biolabs to private companies, which are not accountable to Congress. This allows them to operate more freely and skirt the law as needed.

How many epidemics and plandemics has Metabiota been a part of?

Metabiota is one such private company that was hired to push scientific boundaries and develop new knowledge. Its website states the following:

“We have deep and sustained partnerships with governments, health agencies, academic institutions and private enterprise.”

Metabiota offers both products and services to its customers. These products and services, which are designed to identify early signals of emerging outbreaks, are targeted at those with commercial interests such as insurance companies.

“We work with leading organizations across the insurance industry, as well as multilaterals and disaster-risk financing organizations, to develop novel infections disease-related products,” the company says about itself.

“We combine leading epidemiological, statistical and actuarial techniques to quantify epidemic risk, shed light on uncertainty, and provide data-driven consulting on policy design.”

In 2017, the company released a promotional video explaining that “our disease model library is the largest in the insuretech industry … allowing you to … quantify the impact of an event on your portfolio in dollars and see what drives your losses.”

In 2014, Metabiota was awarded $18.4 million in federal contracts under the Pentagon’s DTRA program in Georgia and Ukraine for scientific and technical consulting services.

Between 2012 and 2015, Metabiota was contracted by the Pentagon to work for DTRA before and during the Ebola crisis in West Africa, and was also given another $3.1 million to work in Sierra Leone.

In August 2018, Metabiota announced that it has received an award from Black & Veatch (B&V) to support DTRA’s CBEP in Iraq.

All around the world, Metabiota has been collaborating with the U.S. government to perform services related to what we now suspect to be biological weapons developed at Pentagon-run laboratories.

There seem to have been many planned epidemics and plandemics prior to the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), in other words, for which Metabiota was contracted to provide scientific and technical consulting services.

Metabiota also has a heavy presence in Africa, and has always been in just the right place at just the right time when disease outbreaks occurred – almost as if someone knew they were going to happen and needed help managing them?

“Isn’t Biden’s son involved with Metabiota or Black & Veatch?” asked someone at the Daily Exposé, adding further conspiracy to these companies.

U.S. government conducted biological experiments on allied soldiers in Ukraine and Georgia, documents show

Monday, March 21, 2022 by: Ethan Huff

(Natural News) The federal government says it is beefing up its military presence in Eastern Europe in order to “protect its allies against Russia.” However, internal documents show that what American “protection” actually means in practical terms is to conduct horrific biological experiments on allied troops.

It has been revealed that the Pentagon exposed about 4,400 Ukrainian soldiers and 1,000 Georgian soldiers to biological experiments with potentially lethal outcomes. According to leaked documents, all volunteer deaths were to be reported within 24 hours in Ukraine and 48 hours in Georgia.

“Both countries are considered the most loyal U.S. partners in the region with a number of Pentagon programs being implemented in their territory,” writes Bulgarian investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, as relayed by Arms Watch.

“One of them is the $2.5 billion Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Biological engagement program which includes research on bio agents, deadly viruses and antibiotic-resistant bacteria being studied on the local population.”

The Pentagon’s “Project GG-21,” as it was code-named, is set to last for five years with a possible three-year extension. The project’s description explains that it involves spreading “arthropod-borne and zoonotic infections among military personnel in Georgia.”

Blood samples were collected from 1,000 military recruits at the time of their military registration and physical exam at the Georgian military hospital in Gori. The samples were then tested for antibodies against the following 14 pathogens:

Bacillus anthracis
CCHF virus
Coxiella burnetii
Francisella tularensis
Rickettsia species
TBE virus
Bartonella species
Borrelia species
Ehlrichia species
Leptospira species
Salmonella typhi

The 10 ml blood draw samples are to be stored indefinitely at the NCDC (Lugar Center) or USAMRU-G, and aliquots could be sent to the WRAIR (Walter Reed Army Institute of Research) headquarters in the United States for future research.

“Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) is the largest biomedical research facility administered by the U.S. Department of Defense,” explains Arms Watch. “The results of the blood testing will not be provided to the study participants.”

In conducting these heinous experiments, special bilateral agreements were formed to protect the U.S. deep state from all liability

The Lugar Center has become infamous for controversial activities, including laboratory incidents and scandals involving U.S.-based drug giant Gilead, which ran a hepatitis C experimentation program in Georgia that resulted in at least 248 patient deaths.

The Georgian GG-21 project is funded by the Pentagon’s DTRA and implemented by American military scientists from a special U.S. Army unit code-named USAMRU-G, which operates in the Lugar Center.

“They have been given diplomatic immunity in Georgia to research bacteria, viruses and toxins without being diplomats,” reports indicate. “This unit is subordinate to the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR).”

“Documents obtained from the U.S. Federal contracts registry show that USAMRU-G is expanding its activities to other U.S. allies in the region and is ‘establishing expeditionary capabilities’ in Georgia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Latvia and any future locations. The next USAMRU-G project involving biological tests on soldiers is due to start in March of this year at the Bulgarian Military Hospital in Sofia.”

The Ukrainian project was similarly code-named as UP-8 and involved the spread of the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus and various hantaviruses. It began in 2017 and was extended a few times until 2020.

For that research, blood samples were collected from 4,400 healthy soldiers in Lviv, Kharkov, Odessa and Kyiv. Of these, 4,000 samples were tested for antibodies against hantaviruses, and the remaining 400 for antibodies against CCHF.

Like the Georgian project, the Ukrainian one revealed no details other than to report all deaths within 24 hours.

As of July 30, 2020, DTRA had allocated $80 million for biological research in Ukraine. The U.S.-based Black & Veatch Special Projects Corporation was tasked with running the program there.

Another DTRA contractor operating in Ukraine is CH2M Hill was awarded a special $22.8 million contract from 2020-2023 to reconstruct and outfit with equipment from two biolaboratories: the State Scientific Research Institute of Laboratory Diagnostics and Veterinary-Sanitary Expertise (Kyiv ILD) and the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection Regional Diagnostic Laboratory (Odesa RDL).

Both the Georgia and the Ukraine projects fall under the protection of special bilateral agreements that shield the U.S. government, its personnel, contractors and contractors’ personnel from liability for “damage to property,” as well as “death or injury to any persons in Georgia and Ukraine, arising out of activities under this Agreement.”

“If DTRA-sponsored scientists cause deaths or injuries to the local population they cannot be held to account,” Gaytandzhieva writes.

“Furthermore, according to the US-Ukraine Agreement, claims by third parties for deaths and injuries in Ukraine, arising out of the acts or omissions of any employees of the United States related to work under this Agreement, shall be the responsibility of Ukraine.”

These revelations make the situation in Ukraine a whole lot more complex than just “Vladimir Putin is a madman,” which is what the Western media wants everyone to think.

Ukraine, Georgia and the other countries where the Pentagon has been operating biolabs and conducting biological experiments on soldiers are hotbeds of biological terrorism being perpetrated by the U.S. government. The United States, in other words, is a terroristic threat.

“What is happening is terrible!” wrote someone in response to Gaytandzhieva’s work. “These studies and the data from the investigation of our compatriot must reach all people in Eastern Europe!”

Another thanked Gaytandzhieva for telling the truth instead of pushing Western propaganda.

And yet, there’s still plenty of good news…..

March 21, 2022On January 2, 1710, King Louis XIV of France was finally ready for peace.After nearly seven decades on the throne (which still makes him the longest reigning sovereign monarch in human history), Louis XIV had seen more wars than he could probably remember.Most recently, France had been fighting the War of Spanish Succession against virtually all of Europe. It had been incredibly costly — France alone suffered half a million casualties, plus the war had ruined the economy.Louis finally capitulated in 1710 and sent a clear message to his adversaries that he was ready to make a deal. It took three years of negotiations, but finally, in 1713, the peace treaties were signed.The end of the War of Spanish Succession in 1713 capped off roughly a century of raging warfare in Europe which had started with the Thirty Years War in 1618.Along the way there were dozens of separate wars that took place in Europe — Portugal against the Netherlands, the Netherlands against England, England against Spain, Spain against France, France against the Holy Roman Empire, the Empire against Sweden, Sweden against Russia.Plus nearly every kingdom — Spain, France, Russia, etc. — had multiple civil wars during the century, including the infamous English Civil War in which King Charles I was beheaded and the monarchy was temporarily abolished.Then there was all the religious persecution — the ultimate in cancel culture. People with opposing ideological views lost the ability to engage in civil discourse with one another, and violence reigned supreme.Murders, massacres, rebellion, and wars over religion, were commonplace, typically between Catholics and protestants. Plus governments often engaged in brutal censorship to silence the opposing side.Yet on top of so much warfare and conflict, there were also nasty outbreaks of the plague.Amsterdam lost 10% of its population in 1624 from the plague. London lost nearly 25% of its population from 1665-1666. Seville (in Spain) and the Kingdom of Naples lost HALF of their populations in the mid 1600s.But the pain didn’t stop there.In addition to constant warfare — and the plague — many of Europe’s economies also suffered painful, historically high inflation.Governments across Europe had gone practically bankrupt from endless military conflict. So with their treasuries nearly depleted, they resorted to debasing their currencies and raising taxes.Prices of consumer staples like bread and meat rose across the continent, but wages didn’t keep up. So most people who were lucky enough not to have been killed by war or disease were growing poorer each year.In short, it was a century of never-ending chaos, conflict, censorship, pestilence, and inflation — something like the last few years we’ve been having.After decades of relative peace in Europe, war has broken out once again. Social division and ideological intolerance are becoming more violent. Censorship is commonplace.Politicians and central bankers have engineered historically high inflation. Major powers in the west are rapidly going broke. And our modern ‘plague’ has wreaked havoc on the world for more than two years.Undoubtedly today there are countless people who feel that the world has gone out of control. They probably felt the same way in the 1600s as well.But it’s important to remember that, in the midst of all the censorship, civil war, conflict, and chaos, the 1600s also saw some of the greatest scientific and technological advances in all of human history.The intellectual revolution sparked by advances in the printing press was in full swing by the 1600s; knowledge was finally able to flourish and spread at a pace that was previously unimaginable.Medicine began to cast aside its medieval brutality and become grounded in the scientific method.Advances in navigation and maritime technology generated extraordinary progress in global trade. New settlements around the world created better opportunities for pioneering risk-takers.Banking and finance took a giant leap forward. The first modern financial markets were developed.And some of history’s greatest intellectual giants, including Isaac Newton, John Locke, Rene Descartes, Galileo Galilei, Gottfried Leibniz, Robert Hooke, Blaise Pascal, Edmond Halley, Baruch Spinoza, Robert Boyle, Thomas Hobbes, etc. all lived and produced incredible work during this chaotic period.Point is, despite the chaos, there was still plenty of upside.Our world is no different.Yes, we have crazed megalomaniacs with nuclear arsenals. We have Napoleonic public health dictators.We have extreme political dysfunction and ‘leaders’ who say things like “government spending is reducing the national debt. It is not inflationary.”We have Big Tech censorship and Cancel Culture. We have bankrupt governments and insolvent pension funds.But we also have plenty of upside.All of these problems, frankly, are opportunities to create solutions. And the bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity.The supply chain crisis is an obvious example of a huge problem that needs real solutions.Last week I had a call with an entrepreneur who is seeking investment capital; he’s developed patented intellectual property that solves a major challenge in the transportation industry that can help clear up some of these bottlenecks. He already counts some of the world’s largest companies as his customers.So far it’s going very well. And if his solution continues to be successful, he’ll not only fix a massive problem, but he’ll stand to make an enormous amount of money. His investors will too.This is just a drop in the oceans of opportunity that have been brought on by so much turmoil and change.It’s a great way to think about your Plan B.We’ve written before that a Plan B isn’t a pessimistic bunker mentality. It’s not about hiding from the world.Rather, it’s about ensuring you’ll be in a position of strength regardless of what happens or doesn’t happen next.And, from that position of strength, to be able to engage with the world and enjoy all the opportunities that are still available.To your freedom,

New Browser-in-the Browser (BITB) Attack Makes Phishing Nearly Undetectable

March 21, 2022 Ravie Lakshmanan

Browser-in-the Browser

A novel phishing technique called browser-in-the-browser (BitB) attack can be exploited to simulate a browser window within the browser in order to spoof a legitimate domain, thereby making it possible to stage convincing phishing attacks.

According to penetration tester and security researcher, who goes by the handle mrd0x_, the method takes advantage of third-party single sign-on (SSO) options embedded on websites such as “Sign in with Google” (or Facebook, Apple, or Microsoft).

While the default behavior when a user attempts to sign in via these methods is to be greeted by a pop-up window to complete the authentication process, the BitB attack aims to replicate this entire process using a mix of HTML and CSS code to create an entirely fabricated browser window.

Browser-in-the Browser

“Combine the window design with an iframe pointing to the malicious server hosting the phishing page, and it’s basically indistinguishable,” mrd0x_ said in a technical write-up published last week. “JavaScript can be easily used to make the window appear on a link or button click, on the page loading etc.”

While this method significantly makes it easier to mount effective social engineering campaigns, it’s worth noting that potential victims need to be redirected to a phishing domain that can display such a fake authentication window for credential harvesting.

“But once landed on the attacker-owned website, the user will be at ease as they type their credentials away on what appears to be the legitimate website (because the trustworthy URL says so),” mrd0x_ added.

Wheat prices soar on Ukraine fears, but U.S. growers can’t cash in

By Julie Ingwersen and P.J. Huffstutter Mon, March 21, 2022, 6:14 AM

CHICAGO (Reuters) – After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sent global wheat futures soaring, U.S. farmer Vance Ehmke was eager to sell his grain.

Local prices shot up roughly 30% to nearly $12 a bushel, about the highest Ehmke could recall in 45 years of farming near the western Kansas town of Healy.

Instead of reaping a windfall, Ehmke found a commodities market turned upside down. He and his wife Louise told Reuters they couldn’t sell a nickel of their upcoming summer wheat harvest for future delivery. Futures prices for corn and wheat had rocketed so abruptly that many along the complex chain of grain handling – local farm cooperatives, grain elevators, flour millers and exporters – stopped buying for fear they couldn’t resell at a profit.

Others couldn’t afford an industry-wide risk-management strategy known as hedging that keeps global commodities markets moving. Missiles falling in Ukraine had rocked that system, sending middlemen scrambling to shore up positions in the futures market that were costing them millions of dollars per day.

“More than anything, the market is just in a panic,” Andrew Jackson, a Kentucky grain merchandiser, told Reuters.

Many of these players continue to hold back on purchases to see how the Eastern European conflict shakes out: Russia is the world’s top wheat exporter and Ukraine is a major global supplier of both wheat and corn.

While some North American millers have said they have enough grain on hand from past harvests to continue producing for several months, prolonged or repeated disruptions to grain trading could eventually contribute to already-inflated food prices.

Meanwhile, the inability to sell some of their winter wheat – whose harvest starts in June – is putting the squeeze on U.S. farmers. Growers like the Ehmkes need cash now to pay for seed and fertilizer ahead of spring planting, as well as for land rent and tax bills coming due.

Fertilizer bills alone are expected to jump 12% this year, after rising 17% last year, according to American Farm Bureau Federation and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data. If American farmers decide to cut back, that could curb yields for the fall harvest at a time when the world may soon need more grain.

Developing countries are particularly vulnerable to supply shortages and high grain prices, said Don Roose, president of agricultural broker U.S. Commodities in Iowa.

“Emerging markets like Africa could have less bread to eat,” Roose said.


The unusual situation that throttled the Ehmkes stems from the system of hedging that U.S. grain growers and processors have long used to insure themselves against price swings.

For every bushel of grain they commit to buy, purchasers sell an equal amount of bushels in the futures market as a hedge to protect themselves against losses.

These commercial players are the traditional “shorts,” or sellers, in the futures market.

On the other side are futures buyers, or “longs.” These players typically are speculators such as hedge funds and investment banks not involved in the physical grain-handling business.

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, which Moscow dubbed a “special operation,” speculators aggressively bought wheat and corn futures, especially the nearby May contracts. The price of May wheat on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) jumped 54% in just nine trading days, from $8.84-3/4 per bushel on Feb. 23 to $13.63-1/2 on March 8.

Russia and Ukraine together supply about 26% of the world’s wheat exports, according to the latest USDA data. Shipments through the Black Sea have already been disrupted.

When futures shoot higher, commercial grain sellers accrue paper losses on their short positions. That’s not necessarily a disaster, as the physical grain they have purchased is rising in value too.

But until they can sell the grain and close their futures positions, they can get squeezed financially. In recent weeks, many have faced so-called margin calls from their futures brokers, forcing them to inject enormous sums into their commodity trading accounts to cover their losses.

“It’s a massive headache that could turn into a problem if they do not have their financial house in order,” said Chad Hart, an agricultural economist at Iowa State University.


The wheat rally clobbered buyers of other crops, too.

Landus Cooperative, the largest agriculture cooperative in Iowa, briefly suspended its cash bids to buy corn and soybeans on March 9. Chief Executive Matt Carstens said Landus also tripled its credit line with CoBank, a top U.S. agricultural lender, to cover hundreds of millions of dollars in margin calls during the rally and ensure its business remained healthy.

CoBank has delivered more than $4.5 billion in loans and credit to customers to deal with margin calls and grain purchases in January and February alone, Eric Itambo, CoBank’s chief banking officer, told Reuters.

Though spot CBOT wheat futures have cooled in recent days, slipping back below $11 a bushel, the futures market has not been this volatile since 2008, when food shortages worldwide sparked riots in some countries.

Back in Kansas, the Ehmkes are eyeing a worsening drought that is hurting the winter wheat crop currently in the ground.

Still, they think they might get another chance to sell wheat at $12 or more with the Ukraine conflict showing no sign of abating.

“Just a whole bunch of things are telling us the price of wheat could be substantially higher than what it is right now,” Vance Ehmke said.
