EcoHealth Throws NIH Under The Bus Over Wuhan Gain-Of-Function Report; Researcher Claims ‘Massive Cover-Up’

The question over whether the NIH funded risky gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China was officially ‘answered’ last week, after the agency claimed that one of their partners – EcoHealth Alliance, failed to report that they had ‘accidentally’ created a chimeric coronavirus that was able to infect humanized mice.

To review, in a Wednesday letter addressed to Rep. James Comer (R-KY), NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence A. Tabak admits to funding a “limited experiment” to determine whether “spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model.” According to the letter, humanized mice infected with the modified bat virus “became sicker” than those exposed to an unmodified version of the same bat coronavirus.

The letter claims that EcoHealth CEO Peter Daszak failed to report this finding, and gave Daszak five days to submit “any and all unpublished data from the experiments and work conducted” under the NIH grant.

If true, it would mean Dr. Anthony Fauci, who runs the NIH’sNational Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, wasn’t lying when he told Sen. Rand Paul in July when he denied the agency was conducting GoF research.

Except, according to Vanity Fair, EcoHealth did report their findings in a timely manner.

“These data were reported as soon as we were made aware, in our year four report in April 2018,” said New York City-based EcoHealth in a statement.

If that’s the case, Fauci is either incompetent for not knowing, or lying.

NIH Today Corrects False Statements by Directors Collins and Fauci – the NIH Did Fund Gain-of-Function Research in Wuhan – Fauci Lied Under Oath

NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci both claimed that the NIH had not funded the gain-of-function research in Wuhan.  Today we found out they lied. 

Dr. Fauci, the Director of NIAID, was under oath when speaking with Senator Rand Paul.  He denied that the NIH funded the gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

Today the NIH provided a document to the US House of Representatives that claims that the NIH did fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

Suspicions of a Lab-Made Virus

Most scientists think that SARS-CoV-2 underwent a natural process and evolved into a virus that could infect humans. The widely accepted theory is that, against all the odds, a bat coronavirus managed to get inside a pangolin and then get inside the exact same blood cell as a pangolin coronavirus, and then these two viruses gave rise to a brand new kind of virus that could infect humans. This is classed as zoonotic infection – this is where a virus is supposed to jump species and start being able to infect humans by acquiring specific mutations.

Over the last 20 years, there have been loads of outbreaks where a virus has jumped species and become a threat to humans – apparently, it just keeps on happening! Flu from pigs and birds…. SARS, MERS, and Ebola from bats.i But some scientists have dismissed the zoonotic theory for the origin of SARS-CoV-2; they think the bat/pangolin theory is very unlikely, for a whole bunch of reasons. These scientists are molecular biologists and geneticists who have studied the design of the virus and come to the conclusion that SARS-CoV-2 was carefully crafted in a laboratory, and that it either escaped from a lab accidentally or was released on purpose.

According to Yuri Deigin (Lab-Made? SARS-CoV-2 Genealogy Through the Lens of Gain-of-Function Research):

“If you hear anyone claim ‘we know the virus didn’t come from a lab’, don’t buy it — it may well have. Labs around the globe have been creating synthetic viruses like CoV2 for years. And no, its genome would not necessarily contain hallmarks of human manipulation: modern genetic engineering tools permit cutting and pasting genomic fragments without leaving a trace. It can be done quickly, too: it took a Swiss team less than a month to create a synthetic clone of CoV2.”

Deigin originally assumed it was bound to be a natural virus, and set out to prove the ‘conspiracy theorists’ wrong, but the more he looked, the more he started thinking they might be right, and that SARS-CoV-2 really could be a man-made virus. He says it’s “an obvious chimera” that’s based on a bat-CoV in which part of the spike (the RBM) has been replaced with the RBM from a pangolin-CoV. He also notes the unusual addition of a furin cleavage site which “significantly expands the ‘repertoire’ of the virus in terms of whose cells it can penetrate.”

This furin cleavage site is said to make the virus even more dangerous because of the way it gets processed by the body, but nobody can explain how it got there. It’s not found in similar coronaviruses so scientists can’t explain how SARS-CoV-2 came to have one. Lots of other viruses have got one, though, and the NIH came up with a solution called the pre-fusion technique, then spent several years perfecting the technique in secret tests with Moderna. In fact, all but one of the alleged outbreaks that have taken place over the last 40 years have involved a virus with a furin cleavage site. This includes HIV, influenza, MERS, Zika and Ebola; it was just SARS-CoV that didn’t have one. Moderna was secretly working with the NIH to develop vaccines for some of these viruses and this involved using viruses AND furin for testing.ii Reseachers have previously experimented with inserting a furin cleavage site into SARS-1 (e.g. in 2006 and 2008).

One of the most important reasons to study the design of the rona is that most of the changes that have aroused suspicion involve the spike protein, and it’s the spike protein that’s in the vaccines. A key feature of the spike is the RBD (receptor binding domain) because this is the bit that determines how a virus is able to infect a particular species, and the RBD of the rona is very suspicious indeed. It just doesn’t seem natural.iii It’s supposed to have evolved from a bat virus, and a pangolin virus, so it should be able to infect bats and pangolins better than it can infect humans, but in fact the SARS-CoV-2 virus is far better at infecting humans than any other species!

Anyone Who’d Support Going To War Over Taiwan Is A Crazy Idiot

Taiwan has been in the news a lot lately, and it’s really bringing out the crazy in people.

The mass media have been falsely reporting that China has been encroaching on Taiwan’s “air defense zone”, which gets stretched into the even more ludicrous claim that China “sent warplanes flying over Taiwan”. In reality Chinese planes simply entered an arbitrarily designated area hundreds of miles from Taiwan’s coast it calls its “Air Defence Identification Zone”, which has no legally recognized existence and contains a significant portion of China’s mainland. This is likely a response to the way the US and its allies have been constantly sailing war ships into disputed waters to threaten Beijing.

As Moon of Alabama reports, US warmongers inflamed this non-controversy even further by feeding a story to the press about the already public information that there are American troops in Taiwan training the military there, citing “concern” about the danger posed by China.

‘This is obscene’: LinkedIn now censoring U.S. journos on orders from China

Axios’ Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian shared this email she received from the U.S.-based LinkedIn informing her that the company will be censoring her profile to readers in China due to “the presence of prohibited content” located in her profile.

“I used to have to wait for Chinese govt censors, or censors employed by Chinese companies in China, to do this kind of thing,” she tweeted.  “Now a US company is paying its own employees to censor Americans”.

WUHAN SCIENTISTS PLANNED TO RELEASE “CHIMERIC COVID SPIKE PROTEINS” INTO WILD BATS USING “SKIN-PENETRATING NANOPARTICLES”

18 months before the pandemic, scientists in Wuhan, China submitted a proposal to release enhanced airborne coronaviruses into the wild in an effort to inoculate them against diseases that could have otherwise jumped to humans, according to The Telegraph, citing leaked grant proposals from 2018.

New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing “novel chimeric spike proteins” of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.

They also planned to create chimeric viruses, genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily, and requested $14million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) to fund the work.

The bid was submitted by zoologist Peter Daszak of US-based EcoHealth Alliance, who was hoping to use genetic engineering to cobble “human-specific cleavage sites” onto bat Covid ‘which would make it easier for the virus to enter human cells’ – a method which would coincidentally answer a longstanding question among the scientific community as to how SARS-CoV-2 evolved to become so infectious to humans.

Daszak’s proposal also included plans to commingle high-risk natural coronaviruses strains with more infectious, yet less deadly versions. His ‘bat team’ of researchers included Dr. Shi Zhengli from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, as well as US researchers from the University of North Carolina and the US Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Center.

Damning New Report Reveals What Wuhan Scientists, British Zoologist Were Up To In Months Before Pandemic

Scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), including British zoologist Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, were reportedly planning to release “enhanced airborne coronaviruses into Chinese bat populations” to inoculate them in the months before the pandemic. The scientists also sought funding from the U.S. to “create chimeric viruses,” which are “genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily.”

The Telegraph reported that the plans from the Chinese scientists were revealed in leaked grant proposals dating back to 2018, which a former U.S. official confirmed as being authentic, the outlet claimed.

“New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing ‘novel chimeric spike proteins’ of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China,” The Telegraph reported. “Papers, confirmed as genuine by a former member of the Trump administration, show they were hoping to introduce ‘human-specific cleavage sites’ to bat coronaviruses which would make it easier for the virus to enter human cells.”

’10 For The Big Guy’: Politico Confirms Hunter Biden’s China, Ukraine Emails Are Legit

Several emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop have been confirmed as legitimate, according to Politico, citing claims in a new book, along with emails released by a Swedish government agency.

Ben Schreckinger’s “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power,” out today, finds evidence that some of the purported HUNTER BIDEN laptop material is genuine, including two emails at the center of last October’s controversy.

A person who had independent access to Hunter Biden’s emails confirmed he did receive a 2015 email from a Ukrainian businessman thanking him for the chance to meet Joe Biden. The same goes for a 2017 email in which a proposed equity breakdown of a venture with Chinese energy executives includes the line, “10 held by H for the big guy?” (This person recalled seeing both emails, but was not in a position to compare the leaked emails word-for-word to the originals.)

MORE: Emails released by a Swedish government agency also match emails in the leaked cache, and two people who corresponded with Hunter Biden confirmed emails from the cache were genuine. –Politico

Recall that news of Hunter Biden’s laptop was broken by the New York Post shortly before the 2020 election – resulting in a multi-week Twitter ban on the outlet, and a baseless claim spread throughout the MSM and by notable Democrats including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) that it was Russian disinformation.

Murphy notably received nearly 70,000 ‘likes’ for his tweet calling it “likely Russian propaganda” – claiming he’d “seen the intel.”
