US State Department Covered Up That China Was Responsible For COVID
https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-us-government-officials-helped-china-cover-up-covid-origins News video here (6/4/21). Approx. 11 Min
I recommend watching the entire news segment as there is crucial information on numerous topics but specifically regarding the state of Lyme/MSIDS.
So why did they lie to us about it for so long? A shocking new piece in, of all places, the celebrity suck-up magazine Vanity Fair, answers that question in great detail. You should read it. In short, many research scientists are addicted to tax dollars. If the public understood just how recklessly they’ve behaved — endangering the entire world with their weird little experiments in poorly relegated labs in China — the money might dry up. As a former NSC official called Jamie Metzl put it, ‘If the pandemic started as part of a lab leak, it had the potential to do to virology what Three Mile Island and Chernobyl did to nuclear science.’
Can’t have that. Got to keep the money flowing. So they lied about it. And then they intimidated anyone who told the truth. Tucker Carlson
A perfect example of this intimidation is from the previous director of the CDC, Robert Redfield, who received death threats from scientists after he suggested the virus came from a lab. Redfield states he expected the lashing out from politicians but not scientists.
This year has demonstrated the death-toll of science for anyone paying attention. It has been replaced with propaganda by self-serving, grant seeking researchers who will do anything for a buck – even lie, cover up, and manipulate data.
Epidemiologist Kurt Wittowski has stated that funding for research has relied more and more on government grants, and less and less upon independent sources. He states:
“Well, I’m not paid by the government, so I’m entitled to actually do science.” Source
This is true for every area, but specifically for all issues surrounding Lyme/MSIDS. The only transparent, forward moving science has been done by independent researchers who don’t have to follow an accepted narrative to receive funding.
As Carlson mentions in the video, our government never admits fault.
Do we really expect this same government, which is accused of funding and performing research where ticks were tweaked in a lab and then dropped from airplanes, to admit this damning backstory and the years of faulty research done by The Cabal, based on carefully selected parameters to disprove chronic/persistent infection, and then rigging treatment guidelines for their own patent purposes? And talk about intimidation. Countless doctors have been wrongly accused, sanctioned, and had their medical licenses suspended or revoked for simply treating Lyme/MSIDS patients. They are bullied and maligned by their own colleagues and called “quacks.”
- Fauci speaks favorably of dual use research of concern, or DURC, stating, “the risk-benefit ratio of such research clearly tips towards benefiting society”
- Due to its controversial nature and potential to fuel bioweapons, several moratoriums have been placed on GOF research, including one in October 2014, after a string of high-profile “incidents” at U.S. biocontainment laboratories
- NIAID has funded GOF research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), but Fauci — amid growing calls that COVID-19 was the result of a laboratory accident — has denied that such funding occurred
Currently there are 15 potentially deadly DURC pathogens – Tularemia is one of them (a pathogen also transmitted by ticks).
Because GOF, or DURC, can be used to make pathogens more readily able to infect humans, it poses major biosecurity risks, which makes publication of such data almost as controversial as the research itself.
Two studies on highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza ignited the debate in 2012. One, led by Yoshihiro Kawaoka at the University of Madison‐Wisconsin, identified molecular changes in H5N1 that would allow it to transmit among mammals.7
According to Ronnie Cummins, co-founder of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and Alexis Baden-Mayer, OCA’s political director (as mentioned earlier in the Mercola link on GOF experiments), moratoriums were placed on GOF research:
“Exemptions to this ‘pause,’ eventually reviewed by a secret government panel, were nonetheless allowed to go forward. The ban was lifted in 2017. Yet between 2014 and 2016, the NIH and Fauci-led NIAID continued funding gain-of-function research overseas at the Wuhan lab, via [Peter] Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance.
Not surprisingly both Fauci and Daszak have been staunch defenders of the official Chinese government story that the virus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) ‘naturally’ evolved from bats and/or other host species to infect humans.”
Clear Links Show NIAID Funded GOF Research
In a May 11, 2021, Senate hearing, Sen. Rand Paul questioned Fauci on the NIAID’s funding of GOF research on bat coronaviruses, some of which was conducted at the WIV. Fauci denied the charge, saying, “The NIH has not ever, and does not now, fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute.”18 However, NIH’s funding of such research can be easily double-checked.
In a Truth in Media report,19 investigative journalist Ben Swann reviews documents proving Fauci lied to Congress, including a paper titled “SARS-Like WIV1-CoV Poised for Human Emergence,”20submitted to PNAS in 2015 and subsequently published in 2016. In this paper, the authors state:
“Overall, the results from these studies highlight the utility of a platform that leverages metagenomics findings and reverse genetics to identify prepandemic threats. For SARS-like WIV1-CoV, the data can inform surveillance programs, improve diagnostic reagents, and facilitate effective treatments to mitigate future emergence events.
However, building new and chimeric reagents must be carefully weighed against potential gain-of-function (GoF) concerns.”
At the end of that paper, the authors thank “Dr. Zhengli-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology for access to bat CoV sequences and plasmid of WIV1-CoV spike protein.” They also specify that the research was supported by the NIAID under the grant awards U19AI109761 and U19AI107810, which together total $41.7 million.
As noted by Swann, this paper clearly spells out that the NIAID spent $41.7 million on GOF research, with the aim of determining how bat coronaviruses can be made more pathogenic to humans, and that this research continued after the 2014 moratorium on such funding was implemented. Source
