Founding of the CCP BioThreats Initiative

The Mission

 The CCP BioThreats Initiative ( is directly vectored against the full spectrum of bioweapons, neurobiological warfare, and human-computer interface-driven information warfare programs under the control of the Chinese Communist Party and its People's Liberation Army, United Front, and Ministry of State Security ( 國家 安全部 ) . This Initiative leads multi-domain strategic net assessment exercises, specialized investigations and provides domain-specific augmentation and force multiplier enablement to government and private sector leaders in the United States and across the entire American Alliance structure globally. We are a precision targeting operation.

There is no such thing as a purely civilian virology lab, research institute or even privately held company in China under the CCP. The Civil-Military Fusion Law, which was exercised by the PLA during the COVID-19 pandemic, renders any institution, private company, or non-governmental organization vulnerable to forcible takeover by the state at any time. In addition, high-risk pathogen and cognitive warfare research that is being conducted at various Chinese virology institutes is under the direction of the CCP and, in some cases, the PLA. This represents a fundamental difference in the system between China under the CCP and the select few other nations that have the demonstrated capability to work with these weapons platforms. It should also be noted that while the PLA continues to lag far behind the United States and its Allies in the Indo-Pacific in conventional terms, the bioweapons and cognitive warfare domains are the two key areas where China is currently ‘upstream’ and has clearly assessed that this provides the CCP with asymmetric options.
