Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), not only funded groups that collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), but he approved his subordinates’ attendance at a conference sponsored by China’s Wuhan lab, which is widely believed to be the source of the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.
Although the 2016 Conference on Viral Infection and Immune Response, hosted by the Nature science journal, has been scrubbed from the publication’s website, archived versions of the site show that two researchers from NIAID were in attendance.
At the time of the conference, attendee Kanta Subbarao served as chief of the NIAID’s Emerging Respiratory Viruses Section, and Nancy Sullivan was chief of the Biodefense Research Section at the NIAID’s Vaccine Research Center.
Sullivan still works under Fauci, while Subbarao left the agency to become director of the World Health Organization’s Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza.
The October conference consisted of six sessions: epidemiology of emerging viral disease, persistent viral infection and immune dysregulation, viral pathogenesis, immune intervention and prevention of disease, innate antiviral immunity, and induction of systemic adaptive immunity.
Among organizers and speakers at the event were researchers from Chinese Communist Party (CCP) entities, such as the current director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and WIV Director-General.
The WIV works closely with the CCP, signing agreements for “All-around cooperation” with CCP city-level governments. In addition, WIV’s researchers have been granted awards from the CCP’s Youth League and the State Council. The lab even televised the National Congress of the CCP.
News about the involvement of NIAID scientists with WIV comes after reports that Fauci’s NIH sent millions of American dollars to fund research carried out by EcoHealth Alliance, the U.S. partner of the WIV. NIAID funded six separate grants totaling almost $3,750,000, which were focused on “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence” in China.
This research “unlocked a highly specific doorway into the human body,” the same pathway used by COVID-19.
As commentator Steve Hilton said on Fox News:
They then built various chimeras: genetically engineered new viruses, man-made in the lab. They infected human cells with them in the lab. And then they then showed that their man-made viruses could replicate as a functional virus. Here is the most important part: the genetic changes they made in the lab unlocked a highly specific doorway into the human body. The virus that causes Covid-19 uses that same exact doorway.
Fauci has said that he does not believe COVID-19 restrictions are a civil-liberties issue.
Speaking of his heated exchange with Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) during a recent congressional hearing, Fauci said:
“I don’t enjoy those kinds of confrontations but I mean, it was very, very clear that he was talking about liberties that were being restricted. This has nothing to do with liberty…. We’re talking about the fact that 560,000 people in our country have died. We’re talking about [60,000] to 70,000 new infections per day. That’s the issue. This is a public-health issue. It’s not a civil liberties issue.”
Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to push coronavirus precautions even as the widespread use of the vaccine has ostensibly reduced the danger of the disease for the at-risk population.
On Tuesday, the CDC released updated guidance stating that people should continue to use masks indoors and outdoors (when in large gatherings) — even if they’ve gotten the shot:
If the unvaccinated people come from multiple households, there is a higher risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission among them, and the safest place to visit is outdoors. If the visit takes place indoors, all people involved should take precautions including wearing a masks that fit snuggly, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and visiting in a well-ventilated space.
Continuing the example from above, if fully vaccinated grandparents are visiting indoors with their unvaccinated daughter and her children and the daughter’s unvaccinated neighbors also come over, they should all wear masks that fit snuggly and maintain physical distance (at least 6 feet), or, to be safer, move the visit outdoors. This is due to the risk the two unvaccinated households pose to one another.
It bears repeating that Fauci is the highest-paid U.S. federal employee — with a record salary of $417,608 for 2019 — making more than the U.S. president. Yet his opinions carry significant weight when it comes to deciding when or whether Americans “can get their freedoms back.” We must remember that it is not an unelected bureaucrat who gets to make that call; that our rights are God-given and protected under the Constitution. He should be confronted, and often.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
