Govt Provides Nearly Blacked Out Emails on Secret Covid Origin Teleconference

Govt Provides Nearly Blacked Out Emails on Secret Covid Origin Teleconference

Blackened emails returned to UK’s Daily Mail make the case these “experts” are hiding something about coronavirus origins.

Legal Insurrection readers may recall that House Republicans demanded answers about the “dramatic change” in how top scientists first talked about the coronavirus in July.

The representatives noted that initial discussions included assessments that SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) had features that “(potentially) look engineered” to calling it a “crackpot theory” a few days later. They focused specifically on a still-secretive teleconference call with Dr. Anthony Fauci and other scientists.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, and Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, the top GOP member on House Oversight, sent a letter to Kristian Andersen, a professor of immunology at Scripps Research, asking him “to brief the committees about gain-of-function research conducted at the Wuhan lab and the possibility COVID-19 was engineered to be more contagious.”

Jordan and Comer wrote: “On the evening of February 1, 2020, you and several other international virologists participated in a conference call with Dr. Fauci. The American public does not know what happened on this call, as all emails pertaining to the content of the discussion have been redacted. But we do know what happened after.”

The Republicans pointed out that on Feb. 4, 2020, Andersen sent a letter to EcoHealth Alliance’s Peter Daszak, saying: “The main crackpot theories going around at the moment relate to this virus being somehow engineered with intent and that is demonstrably not the case. Engineering can mean many things and could be done for either basic research or nefarious reasons, but the data conclusively show that neither was done.”

The Republicans said: “In three days, with no explanation as to why, you flipped your perspective entirely and began calling a theory you lent credence to only days earlier a ‘crackpot theory.’ It would appear the primary intervening event was the February 1, 2020 conference call with Dr. Fauci.

The Daily Mail used the Freedom of Information rules to obtain a cache of 32 emails about the secretive teleconference between British and American health officials. The returned documents were almost completely blacked out.

The response is quite damning to those who participated in the teleconference.

The Mail on Sunday requested emails, minutes and notes on the call between Sir Patrick Vallance – Britain’s chief scientific adviser – and its organisers Sir Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust medical charity, and Anthony Fauci, the US infectious diseases expert and presidential adviser.

Yet when the documents were released they had page after page redacted with thick lines of black ink by Whitehall officials. Even the names of experts copied in on discussions were blocked – and exchanges as trivial as one Edinburgh biologist’s ‘thank you’ for being invited – leaving only a few basic details about the call visible.

The lines left intact include a demand for the discussions, involving 13 participants around the world, to be conducted in ‘total confidence’, and an intriguing email line suggesting ‘we need to talk about the backbone too, not just the insert’.

That was possibly sent by Dutch virologist Marion Koopmans, a member of the World Health Organisation team that produced a widely criticised report into Covid’s origins.

It is vital to keep one aspect of the timeline related to this teleconference in mind. At 10:32 p.m. on the evening before the February 1 conference, Fauci had received a memo from Kristian G. Andersen, a virologist at the Scripps Research Institute in California (and the scientist to whom the congressional letter was directed).

Andersen reported that the virus seemed to be man-made. “The unusual features of the virus make up a really small part of the genome,” he wrote, referring presumably to a genetic component known as a furin cleavage site, which greatly enhances the virus’s infectivity, “so one has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some of the features (potentially) look engineered.”

Andersen went on to note that “after discussions earlier today, Eddie, Bob, Mike and myself all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory”— meaning that, in their unanimous view, the virus didn’t come from nature. “Those opinions could still change,” Andersen added. Eddie is Edward C. Holmes of the University of Sydney. Bob is Robert F. Garry of Tulane University. Mike is Michael Farzan at Scripps Research.

The message sent Fauci into a whirlwind of activity. “You will have tasks today that must be done,” he emailed his deputy director, Hugh Auchincloss, two hours later at 12:29 am on February 1.

Shortly after that teleconference, Anderson did a complete 180 on the origin theory.

Just three days after the conference call, Andersen emailed Daszak to discuss how to counter ‘crackpot theories’ suggesting ‘this virus being somehow engineered with intent’ when it was ‘demonstrably not the case’.

Andersen, who deleted his combative Twitter account after emails emerged that exposed his earlier views, later said this was ‘a textbook example of the scientific method’ in which a preliminary theory was rejected as more information emerged. Yet there remains no evidence to show Sars-CoV-2 spilled over naturally from animals. So we need to understand why these experts changed their minds so fast and so decisively that they scorned people with views they had held themselves only recently.

If those emails contained evidence of the natural origins of that virus, I suspect the words would have been substantially more visible.

However, as timeline data suggests, it appears these scientists are trying to hide the fruits of the poisonous “gain-of-function” research that should never have been approved, funded, or conducted by researchers genuinely interested in public health. I would argue that the blackened emails support that scenario most eloquently.

They all know Covid did not evolve naturally. And they know where it came from. But… “What will the peasants think and do if the truth comes out? How do we prevent that and how do we control that?”

That’s what this is about.

‘Science’ is supposed to be 100% transparent.

And it was for hundreds of years.

Until governments became heavily involved and lots of things that aren’t really science started to be referred to as a ‘science’ and/or ‘scientific’.

The Left corrupts everything it touches. And it has now thoroughly corrupted ‘science’.

Covid is man-made. A product of bio-weapons research. Research outlawed in the US. Research in China funded in part, under the table, by Fauci.

Maybe it was accidentally released due to carelessness. Maybe it was ‘accidentally’ released due to deliberate carelessness. Maybe is was released deliberately. We may never know.

But we do know China did things that assured it spread to the rest of the world.

It’s the crime of the century. On par with the genocides of the 20th century. And the tens of millions murdered by Marxists in Russia and China.

    “Covid is man-made. A product of bio-weapons research.”

    It was developed in a level 4 bio lab by technicians wearing biosafety level 4 pressurized suits to protect them and I am told to wear a 50 cent cotton mask from CVS.

    henrybowman in reply to JHogan. | October 4, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    When they do the definitive movie on the scamdemic, I hope they cast Smoking Man from the X Files to play the part of Fauci. He really gets things done, doesn’t he?
    “The public must never know that the virus was actually engineered by human/alien hybrids!”

    Idonttweet in reply to JHogan. | October 4, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    While the origin of the virus may be important, I’m more concerned with why they’re so insistent that everybody get jabbed with this gene-therapy pseudo-vaccine.

      henrybowman in reply to Idonttweet. | October 4, 2021 at 9:07 pm

      X Files covered that, too. Seriously, just binge-watch the X Files, followed by Idiocracy, if you want to know everything you need to know to live well in 2021/2022.

    jb4 in reply to JHogan. | October 4, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Watch what they do not what they say. From the beginning, China’s behavior and that of everyone else, including Fauci, has been inconsistent with natural origin. For sure, Senator (and Doctor) Rand Paul gets it.

And that’s why I consider most, if not all, so-called “freedom of information act” laws to be a joke.

“Government” refers to that institution established by the Constitution. We are now under something closer to royal control where the king rules by edict and tolerates nothing but immediate obedience. It is no longer “governing.”

What perplexes me is why they still call it “freedom of information” when you are not free to obtain any information.

All that needs to be done is to change the name and everything will be kosher.

This type of obfuscation and lies by government produce Edward Snowden, Wikileaks, the Pentagon Papers, etc. We also know that the coverup is worse than the crime (except with Scientists playing God or Satan, this crime called COVID is damning). Eventually, with the truth slowly seeping out, many of these “medical” experts (Fraudci, Eco Health Alliance, Wuhan Lab, etc.) will be facing the venom of so many.

    Idonttweet in reply to natdj. | October 4, 2021 at 7:44 pm

    Don’t forget that cover-up is just another term for “lie.” When you see redactions in documents, especially massive redactions like these, the first thing to ask yourself is “What are they hiding from us and why?”

    I may have had issues with the Obama Administration, but E.O. 13526, Classified Information Policy, is not among them. It was signed December 29, 2009, and is still in effect today. One of the things laid out very clearly in Section 1.7 is that information is not to be classified or to remain classified in order to:

    (1) conceal violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error;
    (2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency;
    (3) restrain competition; or
    (4) prevent or delay the release of information that does not require protection in the interest
    of the national security (Section 1.7).

    There are no indications on the images provided that there are paragraph, portion, or overall classification markings on these documents. If we accept there are no claims that these documents are classified, we’re left with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemptions.

    There don’t appear to be any annotations indicating FOIA exemptions being claimed for the redactions, which is required. It looks like someone just took a black marker to the documents without even trying to justify the edits.

    What are they trying to hide, and why?

a purposely released bioweapon that hurt weak people.
as I’ve been saying since Jan 2020.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to dmacleo. | October 4, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    “Gain of Function research” is just a euphemism for “bio-weapons research” and is used to avoid all those pesky treaties and agreements between civilized countries outlawing bio-weapons research.

I’m really getting tired of ████ like this. The government knows about the origin of COVID, but they treat citizens like idiots and pretend they don’t.

All of these people can ███ themselves sideways with a ████. I hope they ████ and ████ with a ████████ and then ███ ███ before they ███ ███ and ███ ████ █████████ █████████ ██ ████ █ ███████ ████ in the █████████,

    Milhouse directed those exact sentiments to me a few months ago but forgot to redact the offending words. BTW, how did you do that?

      The page source code doesn’t reveal any tags, just the blackouts. I copied one into Notepad and could still only see blackout, but each blackout if is set of individual characters. I suspect the blackouts are made by repeatedly entering a special character that is a black mark.

      Yup. This is called a “full block”:

      A set of them looks like this:

      A hilarious post, BTW!

      Evil Otto in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 5, 2021 at 8:13 am

      DaveGinOly is correct. I just copied a full block and pasted it as needed.

    UserP in reply to Evil Otto. | October 4, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    All I have to say about that is ███ and ████. ████ !

….and Facebook, Instagram and TikTock are experiencing an “outage” at the moment.
Wonder why?

We need new redaction laws that cause the redactors to replace real detail objects with changed ones in a different font…this would greatly limit the ability to abuse redaction.

In this way, the name/place objects in the information itself are still classified but the entities hiding behind the large black block walls of text can no longer cover their intent and scheme and misdeeds.

The Wuhan virus is a Fauci-funded, Chinese communist-produced, intentionally released, bioweapon. End of story. The motives and evidence are clear. China made a bold, minimally risky attack, betting on western fecklessness and an unwillingness to confront it, and, it has been proven correct in its assumptions.

China’s increasingly unrestrained and brazen bellicosity in military posture, “Belt and Road” usury lending program and South Pacific artificial island antics and aggression against India and Taiwan make this conclusion obvious. The Chinese communist regime is a manifestly evil regime, seeking to expand its power and its influence. Kicking President Trump out of office and installing meek, tottering, dim-witted, corrupt, feeble and inept puppet/vassal/dhimmi/dotard, Xi-den, was only one of the benefits of the Wuhan bioweapon. Watching western societies rack up massive amounts of debt, destroy small businesses and impose increasingly totalitarian health edicts and restrictions, are the other fruits being reaped.

    UserP in reply to guyjones. | October 4, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    That’s why the lights are back on at Bagram Air base and Chinese militrary planes and coming and going like crazy.

    Evil Otto in reply to guyjones. | October 5, 2021 at 8:18 am

    I disagree that it was intentionally released. The virus was most likely accidentally released due to Chinese incompetence. There were reports that the safety at the Wuhan lab was abysmal, worse than you’d see at a typical western dentist.

    I believe they were cooking up a virus to use as a bioweapon, and it got out. If they’d intentionally released it they would have done so somewhere that didn’t raise suspicion about the very lab they were manufacturing it.

    The Chinese government was more than happy with the results, regardless.

      guyjones in reply to Evil Otto. | October 5, 2021 at 9:52 am

      The reason that I dissent from the accidental release theory is the impeccable timing. Think about it — this allegedly “accidental” release occurs right at the end of year 2019, or, at the beginning of year 2020, when President Trump is cruising to an easy re-election over the eventual Dhimmi-crat candidate. The timing is too perfect to be accidental — allowing almost a full year for the virus to build up maximum panic, deaths and economic pain, weakening President Trump’s re-election bid and allowing a senile, corrupt oaf in dotard Xi-den, to be installed in office, with the help of massive mail-in ballot fraud and chicanery.

      And, although I don’t think that the Chinese communists are immune from accidents and incompetence, there’s something else to consider, here: specifically, that the Chinese communists took full stock of the Dhimmi-crats’ incessant subversion, sabotage and other lawless antics against candidate and President Trump (e.g., Crossfire Hurricane dirty tricks op; Mueller “investigation;” hoaxpeachment, etc.) and understood that they could exploit the situation, to their advantage. The Chinese communists scrutinized our domestic political battles and the Dhimmi-crats’ non-stop subversion, and, made an opportunistic play, based on the situation as it presented itself.

I think it’s pretty obvious what happened. They were read the riot act concerning “national security” and “international relations” and their funding was threatened, as in “You’ll never work in this field again.”

So these ‘are not the droids we are looking for’?
‘Move along’.

China PCR test orders soared before first reported COVID case

Government contracts show surges in Wuhan-area purchases starting May 2019

TOKYO — Purchases of PCR tests in China’s Hubei Province surged months before the first official reports of a novel coronavirus case there, according to a report from researchers in the U.S., the U.K. and Australia.

Monthly procurement data shows a spike in orders in May, especially from CDC buyers and the People’s Liberation Army.

“We believe the increased spending in May suggests this as the earliest start date for possible infection,” the report said.

I suppose there could be a valid innocent explanation. However, I no longer give the benefit of the doubt to people who have repeatedly lied and tried to cover up the truth. If it becomes obvious they’re lying we’ll know.

The virus contains intellectual property associated with about 4,000 patents that were filed over the last 20 years. This is one of the reasons why Fauci’s paycheck is so big. If anyone thinks the virus is zoonotic, they should read the patents.
