Dr. Anthony Fauci is a deep state conniver who helped destroy the country and pave the way for the election rig by funding and helping the development of COVID… and now he’s backtracking on previous lies.
The Rat-in-a-Trap Dr. Fauci finally admitted in his latest flip-flop that the COVID-19 virus may not have occurred naturally.
Fauci made the comments on far-left Politifact channel, an organization that itself has been pushing fake news on the COVID crisis for over a year.
Politifact hack: Sen. Rand Paul, who you have tangled with in the past, suggested that you and the NIH funded risky research that eventually down the line was connected to COVID-19? I don’t want to dwell on this for too long but I do want to give you that chance to react to his comments today.
Dr. Fauci: That’s actually preposterous. To bring something up is really not helpful. He was saying that we funded a kind of research in China that could lead to dangerous research. That’s not the case. So what he was saying was absolutely not true. It is really unfortunate that he brought that up. It really does nothing but cloud the issue of what we are trying to do. So it was just unfortunate that he said that.
Politifact hack: That has been the subject for a lot of our fact-checking on the coronavirus for the past year. There’s a lot of cloudiness around the origins of COVID-19 still. So I wanted to ask are you still confident that COVID developed naturally?
Dr. Fauci: No actually, that’s the point that I said. And I think that the real unfortunate aspect of what Senator Paul did was he was conflating research in a collaborative way with Chinese scientists which was — you’d almost have to say that if we did not do that then we’d be almost irresponsible because SARS-COVI-1 clearly originated in China… So we really had to learn a whole lot about the viruses that were there, about whether or not people were getting infected with bad viruses. So in a very minor collaboration as part of a sub-contract as part of a grant, we had a collaboration with some Chinese scientists. And what he conflated that was that we were involved in creating the virus. Which is the most ridiculous majestic leap I’ve ever heard of.
There it is.
Fauci just admitted:
** The virus may not have originated naturally — something he refuted earlier until now
** The US DID FUND Chinese research at the Wuhan Labs
** The US funded this research through NIH grants under his leadership
This was right after he accused Senator Paul of lying about this collaboration.
We now know that Senator Paul was 100% correct in his assertions during his Senate testimony.
And we now know that Dr. Anthony Fauci LIED while testifying to the senate committee. He was not under oath but the same rules apply during any senatorial testimony.
Fauci funded the Wuhan labs that leaked the COVID-19 virus and then shut down the US economy after the virus came to America.
It is hard to fathom how much damage this one man did to our country — and then lied about it for months.
And, for the record, Rand Paul brought the receipts.
Here is the video via The Storm Has Arrived–
FYI — In May 2020, TGP reported this: The leader of the US task force overseeing the country’s response to the China coronavirus, Dr. Tony Fauci, was the one who funded the Wuhan bat virus work and kept it going.
And, one more thing — The frauds at Politifact “fact-checked” The Gateway Pundit for our reporting on the lab back in 2020.
We were right and they were completely incorrect.
Furthermore, when the truth clubbed Politifact, they only quietly updated their records.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this AM.
Cotton is famously the first politician to suggest back in February 2020 that the COVID-19 virus originated in a Wuhan, China lab.
During their discussion, Senator Cotton suggested that the NIH funding by Dr. Fauci to the Wuhan labs could be a “genuine scandal.”
Senator Cotton: “It is imperative that the NIH come clean and tell us exactly what happened… Well, I think that a lot of these so-called experts and scientific bureaucrats are trying to cover their tracks. Again, this could be a genuine scandal. This could be public health bureaucrats violating explicit direction from the Obama White House to continue research that is highly, highly dangerous and particularly susceptible to escape from a laboratory. Especially a laboratory in China.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who discredited the Trump administration’s claims that COVID-19 escaped from a Chinese lab, now insists he’s “not convinced” the virus has natural origins.
Fauci’s comments came during an interview with PolitiFact’s Katie Sanders as part of the Chinese Communist Party-linked company’s United Facts of America: A Festival of Fact-Checking event.
“Are you still confident that it developed naturally,” Sanders questioned the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director.
“No, actually,” Fauci responded. He continued, adding he was “not convinced” that the virus has natural origins:
“No. I’m not convinced about that. I think that we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we find out to the best of our ability exactly what happened. Certainly, the people who investigated it say it likely was the emergence from an animal reservoir that then infected individuals, but it could have been something else, and we need to find that out. So, you know, that’s the reason why I said I’m perfectly in favor of any investigation that looks into the origin of the virus.”
Fauci’s newfound skepticism of COVID-19’s natural origins is at odds with his former stance on the issue. As a National Geographic article from May 2020 reveals:
“Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species,” Fauci says. Based on the scientific evidence, he also doesn’t entertain an alternate theory—that someone found the coronavirus in the wild, brought it to a lab, and then it accidentally escaped.
Mainstream media outlets spun the NIAID Director’s remarks as a rebuke of the Trump administration’s claims that COVID-19 was traceable to the Wuhan Institue of Virology.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology’s scientific journal – which has discussed controversial “gain-of-function” research – counts scientists from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) on its editorial board.
The Editor-in-Chief of the journal – Virologica Sinica – is Shi Zhengli, the Director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases. Eight additional researchers from the Wuhan lab – believed by many to be the source of COVID-19 – serve on the editorial board.
Another member of the journal’s editorial board, however, has ties to Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
Jens Kuhn, the Director of Virology at the Integrated Research Facility which is “part of the NIAID’s Division of Clinical Research (DCR) within NIH” according to the agency, is listed as a member of the journal’s editorial board.
His professional bio notes he “specializes in highly virulent viral human and animal pathogens” as one of “two Principal Scientists” at the NIAID-funded venture:
“I am a Principal at Tunnell Government Services (TGS), tasked as one of two Principal Scientists and the Director of Virology at NIH/NIAID/DCR’s Biosafety Level 4 facility, the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF-Frederick) in MD, USA. I specialize in highly virulent viral human and animal pathogens, biodefense, bioengagement in the BMENA region and NIS countries, and biological arms control.”
Beyond establishing additional ties between Fauci’s NIAID and the Wuhan Institute of Virology – including multiple conferences involving scientists from both entities – the journal has also discussed gain-of-function research. These unearthed connections follow Fauci insisting his agency never participated in gain of function research at the Chinese lab during an exchange with Senator Rand Paul.
A 2017 article from Virologica Sinica notes:
“To identify the DENV entry factors, Amara’s group carried out a gain-of-function complementary DNA(cDNA) screen for host proteins that allow the minimally susceptible cell line 293T to be infectable by DENV (Carnec et al., 2015)”
“Simultaneous gain-of-function and loss-offunction assays were performed by transfecting cells with or without related miRNA inhibitors. After 24 h, Act-D was added into the culture medium,” one study notes.
Another study references the practice, commenting “two main approaches can be undertaken in such screens: gain-of-function, in which a library of overexpressed proteins is used in order to induce or amplify restriction.”
