Sen. Dr. Rand Paul Reminds Fauci the NIH Taxpayer Money Went to Wuhan Institute of Virology

Sen. Dr. Rand Paul Reminds Fauci the NIH Taxpayer Money Went to Wuhan Institute of Virology

“We did, under your tutelage, we were sending it through EcoHealth, it was a subagency and a subgrant. Do you support that the money from NIH that was going to the Wuhan Institute?”

Dr. Rand Paul, the senator from Kentucky, asked Dr. Anthony Fauci point-blank about taxpayer money funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology. You know, the origin of COVID-19.

Paul brought up function research, “which works on making pathogens deadlier or more easily transmissible.” He then “alleged that a U.S. virologist had been working with the Chinese institute on such research and said it was funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH).”

Paul asked: “Dr. Fauci, do you still support funding of the NIH funding of the lab in Wuhan?”

From Grabien:

FAUCI: “Senator Paul, with all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in that institute.”

PAUL: “Do they fund Dr. Baric?”

FAUCI: “We do not fund gain — ”

PAUL: “Do you fund Dr. Baric’s gain of function research?”

FAUCI: “Dr. Baric does not do a gain of function research. And if it is, it’s according to the guidelines and it is being conducted in North Carolina, not —”

PAUL: “You do not think inserting a bat virus Spike protein, that he got from the Wuhan Institute, into the SARS virus’s gain of function — ”

FAUCI: “That is not —”

PAUL: “You would be in the minority because at least 200 scientists have signed a statement, from the Cambridge Working Group, saying that it is gain of function.”

FAUCI: “Well, it is not. And if you look at the grant and the progress reports, it is not gain of function despite the fact that people tweet that, write about it —”

PAUL: “So do you still support sending money to the Wuhan Virology Institute?”

FAUCI: “We do not send money now to the Wuhan Virology —”

PAUL: “Do you support sending money? We did, under your tutelage, we were sending it through EcoHealth, it was a subagency and a subgrant. Do you support that the money from NIH that was going to the Wuhan Institute?”

Why is a single taxpayer dollar going to any Chinese institution? If we have money to throw around like this, sounds like a Federal budget cut is in order.

So Senator Paul asks about Dr. Baric and gain of function research, which Fauci denies. BBBBUUUUTTTT”
FAUCI: “Dr. Baric does not do a gain of function research. And if it is, it’s according to the guidelines and it is being conducted in North Carolina, not —
The liar and dishonest leader of the NIAID and the highest paid government employee says “and if it is” which is the same as saying “So what”!! He needs to be removed AND PROSECUTED FOR AIDING AND ABETTING IN almost 600,000 American deaths and over 3.3 million deaths worldwide!!

Senator Paul was cutting into the time that the highest paid government employee is using to pose for his bobblehead.

Fauci outright lied under oath and I hope that he is not allowed to get away with his blatant lying but I’m afraid the media (with exception of Tucker Carlson) will just gloss over his lies.

In one lie Fauci said ““Dr. Baric does not do a gain of function research.”

It is a well documented FACT that Dr Baric created a chimeric SARS-like virus in his Chapel Hill NC lab in 2014. Working on his team was the infamous Chinese “Bat Woman” from the Wuhan lab. She learned how to manipulate corona virus spike protein from Dr Baric!

Lab-Made Coronavirus Triggers Debate
The creation of a chimeric SARS-like virus has scientists discussing the risks of gain-of-function research

Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, last week (November 9) published a study on his team’s efforts to engineer a virus with the surface protein of the SHC014 coronavirus, found in horseshoe bats in China, and the backbone of one that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in mice. The hybrid virus could infect human airway cells and caused disease in mice, according to the team’s results, which were published in Nature Medicine.

The results demonstrate the ability of the SHC014 surface protein to bind and infect human cells, validating concerns that this virus—or other coronaviruses found in bat species—may be capable of making the leap to people without first evolving in an intermediate host, Nature reported. They also reignite a debate about whether that information justifies the risk of such work, known as gain-of-function research. “If the [new] virus escaped, nobody could predict the trajectory,” Simon Wain-Hobson, a virologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, told Nature.

Fauci did admit sending money to Wuhan Institute of Virology, then tried pettifogging around terminology. Nixon was more persuasive when he said “I am not a crook.” In both cases, everyone knew the statement was false and evasive.

Fauci used US taxpayer money to help fund the creation of a man-made coronavirus designed to infect humans. A virus that was ‘accidentally’ released by the Chinese Commies and that has reportedly killed over 3 million people. So far.

He and Dr. Mengele can share anecdotes in hell. After he spends the rest of his life behind bars.

But, of course, nothing will happen to him in this life. Because he’s untouchable. The Dems love him.

We are our own worst enemy.
This explains Fauci. When the virus first came out they spent a lot of energy shutting down that it escaped from the lab. They weren’t protecting the Chinese, but themselves. We were involved in developing it. Fauci being all over the map was a shit show trying to obfuscate the connection coming back to him. Just like the Ukraine.

A couple of articles of interest. You won’t read any of this in the U.S. MFM as the Democrat party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chinese Communist Party. The Bidens and others are on the payroll. The MFM and other fellow travelers/useful idiots are on the team.

But you can go to the foreign press, including ironically the official Chinese MFM sources, to piece things together. From March 2020.

“The People’s Liberation Army has dispatched over 4,000 medical personnel to aid epidemic control efforts in Wuhan since January 24, Major General Chen Jingyuan, the head of the Health Bureau of the Logistic Support Department of the Central Military Commission, said on Monday.’

Gee, why all the military personnel if this virus was an entirely natural occurance?

“Maj Gen Chen Wei

Dr Chen Wei, called the Wolf Warrior is a Major General in the People’s Liberation Army and the virologist who leads the Institute of Bioengineering at the Academy of Military Medical Sciences and many believe is presumably the head of biological warfare division. She is credited for developing a nasal spray against severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003 and making significant contributions to treating Ebola during the 2014-16 outbreaks and i ..”

I know that MGEN Chen Wei is the PLA’s leading biowarfare expert. She also has a long history with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, going back to the SARS epidemic at least. You can get all this stuff open source, so I’m not giving away any secrets. Hell, the People’s Liberation Army Daily (the official newspaper of the Chinese army; sort of their version of the The Army Times) early last year that MGEN Chen Wei had been dispatched to Hubei province to lead the government’s response to the Wuhan virus pandemic.

Again, why dispatch the PLA’s top biowarfare expert to lead this effort if it really came from random, naturally-occurring bat sold in a Wuhan wet market?

More from the Indian Defense Review article:

“Described as “a goddess of war,” Major Chen Wei took over the P4 laboratory of the WIV to, officially, develop a vaccine against COVID 19 as soon as possible. The CCP leadership could have otherwise sent a plenipotentiary emissary to carry out an investigation. Did the country’s leaders also believe in a “leak” in one of the Wuhan laboratories?”

Yes. The Chinese government suspected this virus escaped into the wild from one of their labs. Given the proximity, most logically the Wuhan Institute of Virology. I wrote about it a year ago on this comment thread.

“On February 14th President Xi chaired an emergency meeting in Beijing where he stressed improving biosecurity at Chinese research labs. The next day the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a new directive titled: “Instructions on strengthening biosecurity management in microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus.”

No one in the Chinese government has straightforwardly admitted that the research labs in Wuhan are the source. But Xi’s statements, and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology’s recent directive, strongly indicate they suspect that’s the case.

If this particular coronavirus is linked to Intermediate Horseshoe bats then one thing is certain; it could not have been a natural transmission from animal to human…”

We are being lied to. Just as we are being lied to about an “armed insurrection” at the Capital on Jan. 6th. It’s the Democrats’ Reichstag fire, or perhaps more accurately their Tiananmen Square. The pandemic allowed them to suspend the Constitution and most people went along with it. January 6th will, they think, give them the excuse to dispose of it entirely.

Does anyone think Fauci will be held to account for farming out research that can’t be legally performed in the US to the CHICOMs by an administration that wants to farm out surveillance and intelligence gathering to third parties to evade laws restricting what the US government itself can collect and retain on US citizens?

“gain of function research” – The second grant that Dr Fauci gave to this Wuhan lab specifically directed them to mutate bat corona viruses to see if they could be made to be contagious among humans.

This is what is now being euphemistically called, “gain of function research”.

These NIH grants are available online for anyone that wants to go read them.

Spoiler Alert below, warning, Spoiler Alert below:
The mutations were successful.

Bet you didn’t know!

Another good article on this, including some really good links in it.

Note that this research had already 1) been banned in the US because it was too dangerous, and 2) Both the Dr at the Wuhan lab and the lab itself had previously been banned by the US from receiving grants from us due to lax safety protocols.

Because of #1 above, Fauci waived the bans in #2 to grant the Wuhan lab our tax $$ to study bat corona-viruses, with a specific focus on mutating them to be contagious among humans.

Now he’s pleading ignorance. But, he signed off on this himself every step of the way.

    “There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on at the Wuhan lab due to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the U.S. government halt its funding of the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question and Nicholas Wade, to his great credit, looked into it. And here’s what he found, quote, “Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding of any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on page two of the moratorium document states that quote, ‘an exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the U.S. government funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.'”

    And that’s exactly the loophole that was exploited. Who signed off on this?”

    The head of the funding agency, NIH, that was issuing the grant would have had to. That was, and still is, Dr Fauci.

      It’s not clear to me that Fauci waived anything. He gave the grant to Daszak, and Daszak gave the money to the WIV. This seems to have been done to evade the ban, and not via any “national security” waiver. If Fauci waived the ban, why didn’t he give the money directly to the WIV? The fact he didn’t suggests that he didn’t have the balls to be that blatant about it, but thought he could conceal the passage of funds to the WIV through an intermediary. Fauci has been called a “weasel.” This is very much what a weasel would do.

Why aren’t they hauling Peter Daszak before the committee? I doubt he’d protect Fauci if his own skin was on the line.

Notice how Dr. Falsi falls back on technokcrat-ese to answer Sen Paul.

<Pray for Ashli Babbitt!

Fauci laundered our tax money through a third party to the lab in Wuhan.. with kickbacks? like 10 percent to the big guy?

Where are the perjury charges?

He is covering for the Chinese, so hang the perjury charges on him.

Fauci lied and he felt comfortable doing so knowing that the media is so uneducated and so incurious they’d take his word as gospel. He’s trying to pretend that serial passage isn’t considered gain of function research when it is, in fact, a commonly used tool. He wants us to believe gain of function only means mechanically tinkering with a virus to create something that wouldn’t be found in nature. If we had a legitimate media, they would have been all over that.

Meanwhile, all the Twolls are piling onto Rand Paul, saying that Fauci owned him, and posting #TeamNeighbor, and other such tokens of love, unity, and coexistence.

I have to ask why wasn’t Fauci fired decades ago over aids fear mongering and how is it he was able to go from medical school to running the show without ever practicing medicine or having some kind of unique scientific specialization?

Something stinks, Fauci is part of it but I suspect not all of it.
