Tucker Carlson interviews Dr. Li-Meng Yan on Fox News, Oct. 6, 2020.Fox News / Video screen grab

October 8, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Chinese virologist who fled to the U.S. and claims that COVID-19 was manufactured in a China lab said this week that her mother has been arrested by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Dr. Li-Meng Yan had fled to the United States in April, after criticizing the Chinese government’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic. She says that her mother’s arrest is not justified.

“My mom has done nothing wrong,” she told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday. “The only thing they arrest my mom for, and send her to Beijing, is because I tell the truth of COVID-19, which [they] feel angry about.”


On September 14, Yan and three colleagues issued a research paper in which they cast doubts on the commonly held position that COVID-19 originated naturally. The paper stated that “the natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support.”

The authors noted that any deviation from the natural origin theory is strongly censured. However, Yan’s paper presents evidence that contradicts the natural origins of COVID-19 and shows that the virus “should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone.” After the publication of the paper, Yan’s Twitter account was suspended.

Yan stated on Tucker Carlson Tonight on September 15 that COVID-19 was man-made and intentionally released by the Chinese government. “So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.”

Yan emphasized that she knew of the origins and purpose of the COVID-19 pandemic. “So I have evidence to show why they can do it, what they have done, how did they do it.”

PETITION UPDATE (8/27/2020)

Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse mandatory mask orders within their borders.

Facebook has restored the share link for this petition, saying that the decision to block it was a 'mistake...'

Please share with your Facebook friends, but we should all take heed of this warning: when an organization or individuals have to beg, plead and cajole just to express objective truths, it may be time to start looking for other social networking platforms.

Facebook needs to treat its users with respect, no matter their political persuasion. Moreover, Facebook needs to treat objective reality and facts with more respect.

One-size-fits-all oppressive government mask mandates must stop!

Healthy adults and children should not be forced - by the state - to wear masks when the risk of infection is low and the benefit of wearing a mask is highly questionable.

PETITION UPDATE (8/25/2020)

Facebook is actively censoring this petition, saying that some people find it 'abusive.'

How anyone could find alternate facts about oppressive mask mandates 'abusive' is incredible...that is, impossible to believe.

This is exactly the kind of censorship which Big Tech is getting a bad reputation for.

The fact that Facebook calls differing opinion and objective reality "abusive" says a lot about Facebook and their agenda to silence reason and logic, not just conservatives and Christians.

But, people are more intelligent than Facebook give them credit for.

And, the more this continues, the more reasonable people will look alternate platforms to share their thoughts and connect with their friends and family. The more that happens, the less revenue Facebook will generate.

All of us have a decision to make, and the time is coming where we might have to tell our Facebook friends that we are moving to another platform.

We are encouraging people to continue SIGNING this petition and SHARING it via other platforms such as Parler and Gab, and to share the link below with your family and friends on Whatsapp, Telegram, Threema and Signal.

Thank you!

One-size-fits-all oppressive government mask mandates must stop!

Healthy adults and children should not be forced - by the state - to wear masks when the risk of infection is low and the benefit of wearing a mask is highly questionable.

Please SIGN this petition which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse mandatory mask mandates within their borders

Public health policies should be based on science and logic, not on the type of political posturing and virtue-signaling which led Joe Biden to recently call for a national mask mandate.

And, public health policies certainly shouldn't lead to a situation where more people could become sick.

But, that is exactly what these mandatory mask mandates are doing.

Here are four inconvenient facts about masks:

1) Masks** are largely ineffective at stopping the transmission of viruses.

The vast majority of masks worn by the public are made from material which cannot filter-out viruses because virus particles are too small to catch or obstruct.  Wearing cloth masks to stop a virus is like putting a bee in a bird cage to keep it from flying away.

Wearing a mask for long periods of time ensures that the wearer has a warm and moist receptacle around his or her mouth, on which viruses and bacteria can land and accumulate.

Thus, masks are actually likely to have little effect in stopping the spread of COVID-19 acting as a barrier, but could actually make things worse acting as a receptacle.

2) Mandates which call for masks to be worn outdoors are both absurd and oppressive.

3) There are clearly documented hazards of wearing masks for long periods of time.

4) And, since school is on everyone's mind...

Notwithstanding the above information on the ineffectiveness of most masks against viruses, we don't know if asymptomatic children can even transmit the virus.

But, it was a reported in an article in the July 21, 2020 Uk Times that: "There has been no recorded case of a teacher catching the coronavirus from a pupil anywhere in the world, according to one of the UK government's leading scientific advisers."

And, we also know that children are extremely unlikely to get seriously ill or die from COVID infections. In any case, children cannot possibly be expected to wear a mask properly in a way that would cut transmission.

There are still a lot of unknowns about COVID-19, but we have grown in our understanding of this disease since the beginning of the crisis.

The knowledge we have gained should allow government and health authorities to make more nuanced policies than the current one-size-fits-all mask mandates.

Where are the legislative hearings in county commissions, and state, provincial or federal legislatures before these drastic actions are mandated? Where are the open and transparent debates among experts that provide our representatives with the necessary information to make good policy decisions?

The real pandemic is the panic and the resulting tyranny that is being caused by dictatorial governors, corporate media and the monopolistic Big Tech.

The truth is that COVID-19 is like a bad cold for most people; this is not ebola or the plague.

Of course, the very elderly and those with serious health conditions should take precautions or be quarantined, but the rest of society should begin the long process of returning to normality.

The frenzy to force everyone to wear a mask, at all times, has gone beyond all comprehension, and goes against science and logic.

Please SIGN this petition which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse any mandatory mask order within the borders of their county, state, province, or country.

Thank you!

Additionally, she said that “the scientific world also keeps silence and work together with the Chinese Communist Party, they don’t want the people to know this truth.”

Following her own public statements regarding COVID-19, Yan said she was a threat to the Chinese authorities. “I am the target that Chinese Communist Party want to be disappeared.”

In the show aired October 6, Yan stated that the recent arrest of her mother is due to her own whistleblowing on COVID-19. She said the CCP was trying to prevent her from speaking out: “What they have done is try to make me silent.”

Yan further referenced the fact that Chinese authorities were angered by the interview with Tucker Carlson on September 15. She also noted that she had received no support from the World Health Organization or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Yan told Carlson that silencing critics is a normal tactic of the CCP.

“It is common sense for our Chinese people in our daily life. Chinese Communist Party can use no reason to arrest and even kill anyone, just because you make them unhappy or you try to reveal the truth.”

Recently, a Chinese billionaire was given a jail sentence for 18 years after having criticized the manner in which President Xi Jinping managed the pandemic. Chinese state media declared that Ren Zhiqiang had been found guilty of financial corruption.
