Top government epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul traded accusations of “lying” about gain-of-function research at a Tuesday Senate hearing, continuing the long-running feud between the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director and the Kentucky senator.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky was also asked about continued health measures like mask mandates on public transportation and vaccine mandates for school children.
In his questioning of Fauci, Paul stepped close to the line of accusing Fauci of lying to Congress in previous testimony in which he said that the NIAID had never funded gain-of-function research in China. Citing a paper on research about bat coronaviruses, Paul said that U.S. money had essentially gone to the hazardous and controversial research – an assertion Fauci strongly objected to.
“I have never lied before the Congress, and I do not retract that statement,” Fauci said. He added that the research Paul referenced was “judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain of function.”
Fauci added: “You do not know what you are talking about quite frankly and I want to say that officially.”
Paul’s response was that the NIH’s judgment “defines… away” work that essentially was gain-of-function.”
“You’re dancing around this because you’re trying to obscure responsibility,” Paul added
“The message from CDC remains clear… vaccination is the most powerful tool we have,” Walensky said.
“The sobering news that you’ve already heard of is the fact that we are not challenged with a very difficult and problematic variant referred to as the Delta variant,” Fauci said. “The fact is that, however… is that our vaccines… are very effective against this variant.”
Fauci, meanwhile, also objected to any suggestion – which Paul denied he was trying to imply – that he or the NIH may be in some way responsible for the COVID-19 virus, saying that the viruses created by the research in question would be “molecularly impossible” to be the origin of the disease.
“You are implying that what we did was responsible for the deaths of individual[s], I totally resent that and if anybody is lying here, senator, it is you,” Fauci said.
The hearing is meant to take a look at “The Path Forward” out of the pandemic. But worry over the Delta variant has led some in the U.S. to call for the return of strict health measures from the pandemic’s height. And that talk has led opponents of such measures to push back hard against moves they say would be counter-productive.
The funding of research into bat viruses done by the Wuhan Institute, under the funding by the EcoHealth Alliance, lasted for over a decade.
Surprise! Surprise! Both the CDC and the NIH are partners of the Ecohealth Alliance.
Just as we found out during the whole charade known as “Russiagate”, there are Professional Bureaucrats who operate behind the scenes of our Federal Government, imperious and seemingly above the law.
Like a spider’s web of intrigue, they move in the shadows, spending our tax money on projects away from the eye of the public.
Projects like the Bat Virus Research done by the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
In an article from February 20th of last year, posted on qz.com by Jan Li, their Chinese Tech Reporter, she states that
The institute first rejected speculation that the first patient to be infected with the virus was a graduate student who studied at the lab, saying on Sunday (Feb. 16) the student is in good health. Yesterday (Feb. 19), it issued a strong worded statement (link in Chinese), saying the rumors about it have “hurt the feelings of its frontline researchers hugely” and “severely interfered” with its task to study viruses. “We have nothing to hide,” the letter read. Nonetheless, internet users don’t appear to be convinced by the assurances from the lab. “What is the truth? The collapse of trustworthiness of media and government is not only sad for the two parties, but also for us citizens,” said a user on Weibo commenting on the rumors. “Some might think the so-called rumors are just a prophecy ahead of our times,” said another.
Some “rumors” from the early days of the epidemic after all turned out not to be far from reality. Li Wenliang, a doctor, had told others about a cluster of cases of viral pneumonia before the outbreak had been made public, but was summoned by Wuhan police for “spreading rumors.” He later became infected himself, and his death turned him into a vivid symbol of the costs of the government’s opacity—prompting an outpouring of anger and grief, and rare public demands for freedom of speech and transparency from the government.
The Chinese people themselves knew that their Communist Government Officials were lying about the origin of the Coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the Chinese Communists are famous for making people “disappear”.
These projects remain unknown by the general public, until something unforeseen happens, like the “accident” at the Wuhan Institute which released COVID-19 on an unsuspecting world.
Former President Trump tried to clean out this rats’ nest of Professional Bureaucrats, naming them the Washington Swamp.
Unfortunately, he did not succeed and they eventually were able to arrange for a demented old man to be appointed the 46ths President of the United States of America.
The entire COVID-19 Catastrophe and Washington’s behind-the-scenes machinations during it, which resulted in a nationwide lockdown and a “radical change to our American way of life, has been all about controlling average Americans to get them used to having their individual freedom taken away from them.
These revelations concerning the Washington Swamp’s involvement with the funding of COVID-19 are just the beginning of horrifying things which were done in the darkness by bureaucrats which are about to find themselves illuminated by the light of truth.
