Are Biden and the media in a quest for non-COVID reason to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci?
We reported that Dr. Anthony Fauci and other officials from the National Institute of Health (NIH) were likely to face a bipartisan panel of congressional representatives, who would gill them all on horrifying experiments involving beagle puppies.
Now NIH officials will likely face questions about funding for a set of grotesque experiments on monkeys.
Members of Congress are calling on the National Institute of Health (NIH) to supply information on testing on monkey brains following a watchdog group’s release of videos of the testing.
“New reports about disturbing taxpayer-funded experiments on monkeys at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in Bethesda, Maryland, demonstrate why more Congressional oversight of NIH primate research is urgently needed,” lawmakers wrote in a letter sent to the NIH Friday.
“We have serious concerns about whether this questionable research deserves the continued support from Congress and taxpayers,” they added. The lawmakers called for the NIH to provide information on the tests.
The letter is signed by Reps. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.), Brian Mast (R-Fla.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Dina Titus (D-Nev.).
Humans share over 90% of their DNA with their primate cousins. Therefore, it would be reasonable to assume that animal protections are put in place for these studies. Furthermore, one would hope the research would have to cross a very high bar in showing exactly why these tests must be conducted for the benefit of humans.
However, it appears such rules didn’t apply to studies being funded by the NIH. Watchdog the White Coat Waste Project (WCW), which has been gathering data and had a report prepared in 2019, alleges that the experiments have cost nearly $100 million just since 2007.
Since released video footage of the testing showed distraught primates chained in tiny cages as researchers surprised them with rubber spiders and mechanical snakes – objects they instinctively fear – to observe their reactions.
The NIH scientists then removed portions of their brains or destroyed them with acid to ‘intentionally worsen the primates’ fear’.
‘In the video, a callous NIH ‘white coat’ can be heard joking, ‘Where the hell is the dancing monkey?,’ after one of the tests on the terrified monkeys ends,’ the WCW report states.
The videotaped experiments, according to the group, took place at he National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) in Bethesda, Maryland and have ‘cost taxpayers over $16 million since 2007 and $1.7 million in 2019 alone.’
One must ask why damning information about Fauci and the NIH, available in 2019, is coming out now.
My theory is that both the Biden Administration and the media need a non-COVID reason to remove Fauci.
…Biden built his presidential campaign around his assertion that he would “shut down the virus, not the economy.” Accordingly, his approval rating has slumped and risen along with U.S. infection and death rates. The number of COVID cases nationwide is again on the decline—and, some Democratic strategists say, that gives the administration an opportunity to change the tone of the discussion around the virus. Biden now has a chance to depoliticize the issue with an action that is suddenly less controversial than it would have been just days ago: Fire Anthony Fauci.
The data suggest that with the media focusing on the experiments, Fauci will be thrown under the bus in Biden’s quest to raise plummeting poll numbers. I suspect that the tactic will not work in the long run.DONATE
