The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

There is no longer any doubt that the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Tony Fauci, lied repeatedly to Congress last May that NIAID has “unequivocally” never funded gain-of-function research at the Chinese Wuhan laboratory broadly suspected of being the source of the COVID-19 pandemic.

letter to Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., from the NIH’s principal deputy director, Lawrence A. Tabak, clearly says otherwise.

About $600,000 in NIH funding had been funneled to Wuhan through a New York-based nonprofit, EcoHealth Alliance, run by Dr. Peter Daszak, one of the most vocal opponents of the “lab leak” theory who has asserted that the virus probably emerged spontaneously from the wild.

That same Peter Daszak was dubiously chosen by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the only representative from America in a ten-member international team to travel to Wuhan to take part in its fake investigation into the virus origin.

As Dr. Richard Ebright, a biosecurity expert and professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, observed: “Peter Daszak has conflicts of interest that unequivocally disqualify him from being part of an investigation of the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic … He was the contractor responsible for funding of high-risk research on Sars-related bat coronaviruses at Wuhan Institute of Virology and a collaborator on this research.”

Daszak reported that all of those scientists spent most of their time quarantined in hotel rooms conducting Zoom discussions with Chinese scientists and a brief visit to the Wuhan wet market all agreed that the source evidence most likely pointed to an animal origin within China or Southeast Asia. The group largely discounted claims that the virus originated in a lab, saying that it wasn’t worth further investigation.

On Jan. 11, following a months-long battle between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) — the parent organization of NIH and Fauci’s NIAID — and House Oversight Committee Republicans finally obtained and released some newly unredacted emails from a small group of top scientists spearheaded by Fauci that had sought to promote a natural origin theory despite having evidence and internal expert opinions to the contrary.

In order to obtain this information, House Republicans were forced to apply a rarely used 1928 so-called Seven Member Rule which requires an executive agency, such as HHS, to provide information when requested by seven members of the House Committee on Government Operations (now called the Committee on Oversight and Reform).

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins.

An April 19, 2020 email from Peter Daszak thanked Tony Fauci for “publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover.” This was two days after Fauci had announced that it was believed the virus had emerged from bats in China.

Daszak then persuaded 26 other scientists to sign off on a letter he had written to world-leading scientific journal, The Lancet, claiming the virus could only have been natural in origin, and that to suggest otherwise based upon “conspiracy theory” only creates “fear, rumors, and prejudice.”

Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Francis Collins, as well as Jeremy Farrar, the head of the British Wellcome Trust.

The most significant new email revelations came from Robert Garry and Mike Farzan, both of whom had received funding from Fauci’s NIAID, who reported in notes to Collins, Fauci, and Acting NIH Director Lawrence Tabak, following a Feb. 2, 2020, teleconference that they were 60 to 70 percent sure that COVID had come out of a lab.

In those notes, Garry said in no uncertain terms that “I really can’t think of a plausible natural scenario where you get from the bat virus” to COVID-19.

Dr. Garry added, “Of course, in the lab, it would be easy to generate the perfect 12 base insert that you wanted.”

recent study in the science journal Nature noted that the COVID-19 virus was uniquely adapted to infect humans, as it “exhibited the highest binding to human hACE2 of all the species tested.”

Remarkably, only a day earlier, on Feb. 1, 2020, Garry had helped with drafting a proximal origin paper that indicated the opposite, the idea that the virus had originated in nature. That paper became the media’s and the public health establishment’s go-to evidence for a natural origin for the COVID virus and firmly excluded the possibility of a lab leak.

One of Garry’s co-authors for the proximal origin paper, Andrew Rambaut, speculated that the virus might have arisen in another animal, a so-called intermediate host.

Two years later, no such host has been identified, and Rambaut also since recognized that while COVID-19 is “an extremely fit virus in humans — we can also deduce that it is not optimal for transmission in bat species.”

Mike Farzan, an immunologist who in 2005 discovered the receptor of the original severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus, wrote that he was “bothered” by difficulty explaining it “as an event outside the lab,” and that the possibility that the virus could have arisen in nature was “highly unlikely.”

The emails indicate that Farzan, who has received grants totaling almost $20 million from Collins’ NIH and Fauci’s NIAID since the beginning of the pandemic, was cognizant that the Wuhan lab had a very low level 2 biosecurity standard for such experiments.

This fact was later admitted by the Wuhan lab’s director, Shi Zhengli, in July 2020.

It was known from previously released emails that Kristian Andersen, a scientist at the Scripps laboratory who has also received funding from Fauci’s NIAID, had privately told Fauci on Jan. 31, 2020, that the virus looked engineered. Andersen later spearheaded  Fauci’s efforts to promote a natural origin narrative.

Nevertheless, on Feb. 3, just one day after Robert Garry, Mike Farzan and Andrew Rambaut shared their views disputing that story, Tony Fauci attended a meeting at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) urgently convened at the behest of White House Director of Science and Technology Kelvin Drogemeier.

The meeting, which included a presentation by Fauci, which was also attended by Peter Daszak — the person through whom Fauci had funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology —and Kristian Andersen, disingenuously made no mention of their private discussions —which were taking place at the same time — that the virus most likely originated in a Wuhan lab.

This is the very same Dr. Anthony Fauci who brazenly claimed, “a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly are attacks on science.”

The only scientific agenda should be to get facts right; to explain what is known and provable, and what is not, and to be honest.

The principal assailant of science is none other than Tony Fauci himself.

Tony Fauci is also funding 3 other viruses that is suppose to be more dangerous then Sars-Cov 2

Regarding possible Covid-19 coverups, why would world reknown scientists of the intellectual magnitude of Andrew Rambaut, Edward Holmes , Christian Andersen, and Robert Garry publish articles such as ‘Proximal Origin of Sars-Cov-2’ in 2020, and   ‘The Origin of Sars-Cov-2:A Critical Review’ in 2021,  repeatedly emphatically state that Covid-19 originated in nature, while at the same time, many in the same scientific community view their offers of proof as being comical and a farce. Is there a ‘western hemisphere’ Covid-19 cover-up going on at the level of  high science? And who is being protected?

Buffalo and NY State police authorities knew of the teen’s derangement and made some early efforts to corral him, but he still got loose. It’s they who should be held responsible, not Tucker Carlson. Mass shootings have become a common recurrence, it seems. This time last year, we experienced a similar number of mass shootings, on average ten per week. 2021 ended with 693 mass shootings, and there were 417 in 2019. What’s happened?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed.

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil.

Here’s the positive side of this war…
