Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part twenty-two

As has been noted throughout in the text of this continuing series that began three years ago this month, bioengineered SARS CoV-2 virus that escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology before it became fully weaponized was the rotten fruit of the gain-of-function funding that had been provided by the now thoroughly discredited Dr. Anthony Fauci, who headed the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases from 1984 to 2022, through his allies at the nefarious EcoHealth Alliance company despite Fauci’s repeated denials that this is so.

A recent report provided a summary of the cogent facts:

BRET BAIER: We have shown you this timeline before. The origins of COVID-19, what happened over the months. But with new information and new details, just within the past few days, we thought we would go through it again.

More than three years ago this mysterious virus began to spread in Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization said at the time initial COVID-19 cases seemed to be connected to a wet market in the city of Wuhan. But, behind closed doors, a new theory was discussed that the virus originated in a lab. Some officials pushed back publicly on that idea but over time, agencies and experts have increasingly begun to support the lab leak theory.

January 2020, the world first learns that patients in Wuhan, China are suffering serious complications from an unknown virus. And we soon realize infections from a novel coronavirus are fueling a fast-spreading global pandemic. By mid-month the first U.S. case of COVID is reported in Washington state. Health experts conclude the outbreak is due to human-to-human transmission.

FAUCI: It's really a big difference with the Chinese this time now they look like they are being quite transparent and cooperative with us.

In January of last year, Fox News obtained internal communications from the National Institutes of Health. Those emails from the earliest days of the crisis revealed NIH head Dr. Anthony Fauci was warned COVID may have leaked from a Chinese government-run lab, the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

January 27th, Fauci is told the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has been indirectly funding the Wuhan lab through EcoHealth Alliance, a U.S.-based scientific nonprofit that had been working with novel coronaviruses.

January 31st, Dr. Kristian Andersen, a noted virologist at the Scripps Lab privately tells Fauci that after discussions with his colleagues, some of COVID-19's features, potentially look engineered and, quote: "The genome is inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory."

Fauci reacts immediately and organizes an all-hands-on-deck conference call with colleagues. He tells the deputy director of the agency, Dr. Hugh Auchincloss of the urgency: "Read this paper as well as the email that I will forward to you now. You will have tasks today that must be done."

Fauci also holds a conference call with a dozen virologists from around the world. Some immunologists were not convinced the virus occurred naturally. Dr. Robert Garry of Tulane University wrote, "I really can't think of a plausible natural scenario where you get from the bat virus or one very similar to it to nCoV where you insert exactly 4 amino acids 12 nucleotide that all have to be added at the exact same time to gain this function. That, and you don't change any other amino acid in S2? I just can't figure out how this gets accomplished in nature. Of course, in the lab it would be easy to generate the perfect 12 base insert that you wanted."

Notes of the meeting also revealed those suspicions of a Wuhan lab leak are suppressed over concerns that public revelations of Chinese government involvement would do, quote, great potential harm to science and international harmony.

Dr. Garry later says a consensus is reached for drafting a report, quote, "One, don't try to write a paper at all - it's unnecessary; or, two, if you do write it, don't mention a lab origin as that will just add fuel to the conspiracists."

Just four days later, five American, British and Australian researchers who are all on that Fauci conference call author preliminary findings that abandon their earlier private beliefs that COVID was likely the result of a laboratory leak. It's unclear what new evidence prompted such a drastic 180. But private communications show the various drafts of their report are sent to Fauci and Collins for editing and approval. The records do not reveal if they, in fact, edited the new version.

Weeks later a final version of that report is posted. Again, a total reversal of what those virologists wrote in private emails earlier.

March 17th, in Nature Medicine: Our analysis clearly shows that COVID is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus. But that was not enough to tamp down what multiple sources inside and outside government believed, that the Wuhan lab was, indeed, the COVID ground zero.

Multiple sources say this may be the costliest government cover-up of all time by China... There is a growing belief that the COVID-19 virus originated in the Wuhan lab, not as a bioweapon but as China's effort to find and deal with viruses to show the world China was as good as or better than the U.S. on that front.

Later that day president trump is asked about our reporting. "More and more we are hearing the story. We are doing a very thorough examination of this horrible situation that happened."

The next day April 16th a frustrated Collins emails Fauci, "Wondering if there is something NIH can do to help put down this very destructive conspiracy." Collins' email includes a link to our "Special Report" and reporting. A day later Fauci replies, quote: "I would not do anything about this right now. It is a shiny object that will go away in times."

A month later we learn doctors Drs. Kristian Andersen and Robert Garry are awarded a nearly $90 million research grant from Fauci's agency. A month after that Dr. Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance the group that did the original U.S.-funded experiments with the Chinese at the Wuhan Institute of Virology received a $7.5 million grant over five years from Dr. Fauci. President Biden a year later tasks the U.S. Intelligence community to probe the COVID origins, but its August report was inconclusive due it in large part to China's unwillingness to assist with the investigation.

BAIER: You clarify that you thought it was not a weaponized thing from the Chinese but that it may have been a lab accident. It seems more and more pointing that way. Are you confident saying that or closer to that?

DR. FRANCIS COLLINS: You know, I don't think I have any more new information to be able to tip the balance. Certainly possible that this was somehow understudy in the lab even though it was not human-engineered from scratch. I'm quite confident of that.

BAIER: Eight intelligence agencies participated in a review of the coronavirus origins. Four of those, along with the National Intelligence Council, judged with low confidence that the virus likely originated from natural exposure.

FAUCI (JULY 22, 2022): We think it's more likely that it was a natural evolution.

BAIER: You still believe that? There are more and more organizations that point right to a lab leak.

FAUCI: No, no. That's not so, Bret.

BAIER: More people saying it. We are hearing it around the world.

FAUCI: More people saying it doesn't mean there's more evidence of it... If you take a group of emails where people are considering and thinking out loud and you stop there, and don't look at the weeks of careful examination by those same people that wrote the emails and then say you know now that we have looked at it, in the published peer review literature, they explain very clearly why they think it's a natural occurrence.

BAIER: The Energy Department determined with low confidence the virus likely spread from a mishap at the Wuhan lab. However, some Biden officials and Dr. Fauci have not changed their view on the origins.

JOHN KIRBY (FEBRUARY 27, 2023): Their work is still ongoing. There hasn't been a final conclusion arrived at here.

FAUCI: We may not ever know. That's unfortunate but that's the possibility that we might not ever know.

The Energy Department joins the FBI in supporting the lab leak theory. FBI Director Christopher Wray spoke for the first time about that assessment on "Special Report."

CHRISTOPHER WRAY: The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan. Let me step back for a second. You know, the FBI has folks, agents, professionals, analysts, virologists, microbiologists, etc. who focus on the dangers of biological threats which include things like novel viruses like COVID. And the concerns that in the wrong hands some bad guys, a hostile nation-state, a terrorist, a criminal, the threats that those could pose. So here you are talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab that killed millions of Americans. And that's precisely what that capability was designed for. I should add, that our work related to this continues and there is not a whole lot of details that I can share that aren't classified. I will just make the observation that the Chinese government seems, to me, has been doing its best to try to thwart and obfuscate the work here.

BAIER: Director Wray's comments were as definitive as any official has said publicly about the origins of COVID. Two agencies though remain undecided in determining those origins. China meantime continues to deny the lab leak theory saying this week, rehashing that will only hurt the reputation of the United States. Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill are also investigating the origins of COVID and have launched a select committee over that matter and the U.S. taxpayer dollars that were funneled into the Wuhan lab. (The Lab Leak Theory Timeline And How Fauci Gave Grant Money To EcoHealth To Study Coronavirus In Wuhan.)

Trying to nail weasels such as Fauci, whose efforts to discredit the virus’s lab leak origins have by privately encouraging a “paper” to be published that he later cited as “proof” of his false contention, is something akin to trying to nail Jell-O gelatin brand desert to the wall.

However, efforts aplenty are being made by various naturalists within the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist “right” (as well as by a few commentators in the realm of the mainslime media) to bring the truth of the Wuhan/Red Chinese/SARS CoV-2/Covid-19/Coronavirus to light, not that the truth will change too many minds, which, quite predictably, are divided along partisan political grounds, which is why so many ordinary people continue to wear those stupid masks, which do not one blessed thing to prevent anyone from getting the dreaded virus that is only deadly in most instances in those who do not have any underlying medical conditions (co-morbidities).

Here is a series of reports concerning the information about the virus’s origins that have been published since part twenty-one of this series was posted on March 1, 2023. I will offer brief comments after each report:

On Tuesday, FBI director Christopher Wray dropped a nuclear-level bombshell.

In an interview with Fox News, the nation’s top G-man finally admitted what much of the world already believes: That COVID-19 “most likely” originated from an incident in a Chinese government-controlled lab in Wuhan – with emphasis on incident, not accident.

Wray’s public confirmation of a viewpoint that his agency has apparently held for “quite some time,” came a day after the Wall Street Journal reported that the US Department of Energy (DOE) had reached a similar conclusion.

According to a classified report presented to the White House and members of Congress, DOE officials — many overseeing national laboratories that conduct biological research — now agree that the COVID pandemic “most likely” came from a lab leak. 

These revelations arrive after three years of claims by everyone from the US government to major spy agencies to Washington’s COVID policy dictator, Dr. Anthony Fauci, that “natural occurrence” was the only possible cause of the coronavirus pandemic.

It wasn’t the Wuhan virology lab that released the virus; the very lab where US-funded research was occurring, they insisted.

Rather, the virus originated in a slaughterhouse nearby. And anyone who dared to stray from the party line, including medical professionals, was labeled a wild conspiracy theorist, racist, or both. 

Watching as the COVID pandemic scandal unravels, I can’t help but flashback to my birthplace, the USSR, and the Chernobyl nuclear accident that took place 37 years ago in Soviet-era Ukraine.

Indeed, the COVID lab-leak sham now transpiring in my adopted homeland eerily reminds of the Soviet cover-up orchestrated in the aftermath of the worst nuclear disaster in world history.

There are stunning similarities between the tactics employed today by Washington – and Moscow decades ago – as the ruling classes clamor to prevent their citizenry from learning the truth. 

n the night of April 25-26, 1986, an explosion and fire destroyed the Chernobyl 4 reactor about 60 miles from Kyiv, sending a radioactive cloud into the air that spread across the Soviet Union and northern Europe.

Much like initial US efforts to minimize the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020, the Soviets denied early reports that an accident had even taken place.

Indeed, an order to evacuate the area didn’t arrive until 36 hours after the accident.

It wasn’t until Sweden, Finland, and Denmark reported unusually high levels of radiation that the Kremlin finally acknowledged the situation.

Meanwhile, people were already dying from acute radiation syndrome (ARS), suffering from nosebleeds, nausea and vomiting as the government drafted “volunteers” from across the country to assist with the clean-up.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who flip-flopped on every possible COVID-related issue – from the effectiveness of masks to the benefit of the vaccine — would have been proud of the masterful denial and deception campaign unleashed by Soviet apparatchiks on both domestic and international audiences.

Much like Fauci contended that masking was unnecessary in the pandemic’s first months, Soviet government-controlled media called Western reports about the accident unfounded, claiming that everything was under control.

The problem is getting better,” a Soviet Embassy official in the United States assured curious minds in the US government after the accident.

Meanwhile, Soviet news presenters insisted to their fellow countrymen that “the trouble has passed.”

As for Fauci, turns out those early mask messages were merely an attempt to conserve scarce protective gear in the face of likely shortages.

During the Chernobyl period, I was a Moscow university subject, like everyone else, to heavy anti-American indoctrination.

We dismissed those early news reports as Western disinformation.

A French teacher even told the class that she had received a letter from her mother, who lived in a village not far from the contaminated area, inviting her to visit that summer.

Years later, I found out that my own mother and aunt went to Chernobyl to visit my uncle, who had been drafted to help with the disaster.

My mother died seven years later at 55 from unknown causes, my uncle later died from thyroid cancer, and my aunt is struggling with cancer now. 

Thousands of Russians perished from illnesses such as cancer.

And yet, we were not allowed to ask any questions.

Even today, Chernobyl’s total death toll and long-term health effects remain unknown owing to a lack of accountability by the Soviet-era government.

More than 40 years later, I was shocked to see a similar coordinated effort to obscure the origins of the COVID epidemic. 

Orchestrated by Big Government –  in collusion with Big Tech and the Big Media – the goal was to distort and shut down any candid public discourse about this critical national security issue.

US spy agencies concealed from Congress, and therefore the American people, that COVID-19 demonstrated clear consistencies with China’s biological warfare doctrine and Beijing’s long-term programs to weaponize viruses.

This, despite the fact that the State Department knew as early as 2005 that China operates an offensive biological weapons program.

Aided by a left-leaning media – here playing the role of the Communist-era newspaper Pravda – the goal was to demonize anyone, including medical professionals, who strayed away from the party line.

The Soviet government’s motivation for the Chernobyl coverup, according to an archived KGB report, was “to prevent panic and provocative rumors.”

Perhaps the US authorities possessed similar motivations more than three decades later. Whatever the thinking, as someone who fled autocracy for democracy, I am hopeful the new covid disclosures will compel our government to stop resorting to Soviet-styled disinformation –  and begin providing Americans with the real information they need to protect their health, and even their survival. (Why the COVID lab leak cover-up is similar to Chernobyl.)

Anyone who thinks that the new disclosures, which are not exactly “news” to those who have been reading these commentaries for the past three years, will do anything to “compel our government to stop resorting to Soviet-styled” disinformation” does not realize that we are only witnessing the logical, inevitable deterioration of a world that has rejected the sweet yoke of Christ the King as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church, in favor of the Pelagian myth of human self-redemption, a myth that leads ultimately to the triumph, albeit temporary, of rank, undisguised totalitarianism.

Moreover, our civil minders have worked overtime to deliberately label true information, especially concerning the harm caused by the poisoned jabs called vaccines, as “misinformation.” Having been caught doing this, though, some are arguing to use their censorious powers to label facts as “malinformation”:

At the behest of the Biden administration, censorship escalated dramatically in 2021. In an effort to boost vaccine uptake at all costs, Facebook told officials that it was censoring “often-true content” that did not contain misinformation but which might dissuade people from getting vaccinated. Many prohibited claims on social media pertaining to topics like natural immunity, breakthrough infections, and myocarditis proved to be true.

On Jan. 11, 2023, Dr. Anthony Fauci co-authored a paper in the journal Cell, arguing that viruses like SARS-CoV-2, which replicate in the respiratory mucosa, cannot be effectively controlled through vaccines that create systemic immunity, such as the current mRNA vaccines. Anyone making similar assertions on social media before 2023 may have been deplatformed, or their post might have been removed. Today it is worth asking how many people would have declined vaccines or boosters if this kind of commentary had been widely available.

One of the key problems with AB 2098, Hoeg explained, is that its vagueness “puts us all at risk of ‘misinformation’ not being defined using scientific data but by the beliefs of the dominant political party.” Throughout 2020, 2021, and 2022 “misinformation” and “settled science” were not determined through objective criteria—they were determined by the political preferences of those wielding power in state bureaucracies, tech companies, and mainstream media. In consequence, we are facing a snowballing economic crisis, children have been plunged into an academic and mental health catastrophe, and the country has seen non-COVID excess deaths of tens of thousands of people under 45. The bureau of experts has inflicted bottomless stress on the population as a whole and has shown a total disregard for basic civil rights and human dignity.

Free speech is rarely just about free speech for its own sake; it is about placing checks and balances on the ability of an authority to shape reality. “Nobody has a monopoly on the truth,” Younes explained. Ending the COVID truth regime is not only a matter of correcting the record on misguided policies. The underlying set of assumptions that led to mass censorship and rule-by-technocrat must be dismantled as well. (Collapse of the COVID Truth Regime.)

This a fine factual accounting of how our country has become an Orwellian playground for its high priests and priestesses of the Deep State, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Pharma, and the ubiquitous “academic” and “talking heads” who do their bidding for them.

Unfortunately for the author of the commentary cited just above, “free speech” is not about placing checks and balances on the ability of an authority to shape a reality” as, yes, the Catholic Church has a monopoly on all truth pertaining to the supernatural order and even in the natural order as she is the authoritative interpreter of the Natural Law.

While Holy Mother Church permits her children free inquiry in matters of speculative theology and on other matters which have not been defined or have arisen as a result of various scientific discoveries and/or technological advances hitherto unknown, she insists that such inquiry be based solely in a search for truth and conducted in a rigorous spirit of intellectual honesty without any special pleading (finding “proofs’ for a preconceived conclusion while speciously arguing that such pleading represents scholarship when it does not) and that all things pertaining to Faith and Morals be in submitted to her magisterial authority for review and comment when deemed necessary.

Similarly, Holy Mother Church, while recognizing the legitimate expertise of those involved in the study of worldly matters, including the physical sciences and that she has no direct role to play in such study, insists that nothing contrary to the known truth be advanced and that all endeavors be undertaken for the honor and glory of the Most Blessed Trinity and for the genuine good of souls, both spiritually and temporally.

However, no one is morally free to disseminate error in the belief that someone else can always counterbalance it, something that Pope Gregory XVI specifically noted in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832:

"This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.

Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again? (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)

This does away with the very specious argument about the purpose of “free speech” advanced by the author of a factual review of the ways in which the deep state engineers and their accomplices in the semi-private sector have sought to suppress the truth.

Moreover, Pope Leo XIII, writing in Immortale Dei, explained that there one is never morally free to do that which is proscribed by the Divine and Natural Laws:

So, too, the liberty of thinking, and of publishing, whatsoever each one likes, without any hindrance, is not in itself an advantage over which society can wisely rejoice. On the contrary, it is the fountain-head and origin of many evils. Liberty is a power perfecting man, and hence should have truth and goodness for its object. But the character of goodness and truth cannot be changed at option. These remain ever one and the same, and are no less unchangeable than nature itself. If the mind assents to false opinions, and the will chooses and follows after what is wrong, neither can attain its native fullness, but both must fall from their native dignity into an abyss of corruption. Whatever, therefore, is opposed to virtue and truth may not rightly be brought temptingly before the eye of man, much less sanctioned by the favor and protection of the law. A well-spent life is the only passport to heaven, whither all are bound, and on this account the State is acting against the laws and dictates of nature whenever it permits the license of opinion and of action to lead minds astray from truth and souls away from the practice of virtue. To exclude the Church, founded by God Himself, from the business of life, from the making of laws, from the education of youth, from domestic society is a grave and fatal error. A State from which religion is banished can never be well regulated; and already perhaps more than is desirable is known of the nature and tendency of the so-called civil philosophy of life and morals. The Church of Christ is the true and sole teacher of virtue and guardian of morals. She it is who preserves in their purity the principles from which duties flow, and, by setting forth most urgent reasons for virtuous life, bids us not only to turn away from wicked deeds, but even to curb all movements of the mind that are opposed to reason, even though they be not carried out in action. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)

It is a grave and fatal error to exclude Holy Mother Church from the business of life, from the making of laws, from the education of youth and from influencing the whole direction of domestic society. The Western world is on a death march from which, humanly speaking, there is no retreat. This is all a preparation for the coming of Antichrist to take control of a world that has been torn apart by the proliferation of sin and error by those who believe that men can make their lives better without Christ the King and His true Church, which is precisely why the state-sponsored merchants of genuine disinformation have been so successful while being completely without remorse after their schemes have been exposed:

It has been a bad week for patronizing crusaders who seek to bar controversial speech on the grounds of “disinformation.” On February 26, the Wall Street Journal broke a story regarding a classified Department of Energy report that the Covid-19 virus most likely originated with a leak from China’s Wuhan lab. FBI Director Christopher Wray echoed the DOE’s conclusion in a February 28 interview with Fox News. Such developments should be a monumental embarrassment to numerous figures in both government and the establishment news media who worked diligently in 2020-2021 to block accounts that endorsed—or even favorably considered—the lab-leak thesis.

The new bombshell revelations will likely create turbulence in multiple respects. It will exacerbate already contentious relations between the United States and the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Xi Jinping’s government made every effort to prevent an independent investigation of Covid’s onset, and PRC officials were aided by Western medical bureaucrats who insisted that it was virtually certain the virus came from nature. The already tattered reputations of those bureaucrats have taken a new hit and may now be damaged beyond repair. That is especially true for Anthony Fauci, who was director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) during the Covid pandemic and was the principal spokesperson for U.S. government policies. 

Members of the establishment press worked very hard to bury the lab-leak thesis as wild, baseless speculation. Until May 2021, allegations that the virus may have originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology were widely dismissed as an unfounded conspiracy theory. President Donald Trump’s receptivity to the theory led to knee-jerk conclusions about it being explicitly or implicitly racist as well. Only a handful of media outlets, principally Fox News, National Review, and The American Conservative, treated the lab-leak hypothesis seriously, and they were mocked, denounced, and vilified for doing so. Facebook and other social media information gatekeepers summarily barred posts embracing the argument that the deadly virus more probably came from the Wuhan virology lab than from bats being sold at a Wuhan market as “disinformation.”

However, it gradually became apparent that it was not “settled science” that the virus originated in nature. Admissions, albeit often grudging, emerged from multiple sources, including the Centers for Disease Control, that it was at least possible the virus could have begun in a laboratory. Another major blow to the blackout on debate came in late May 2021 when the Biden administration authorized a comprehensive investigation to discover the source of the coronavirus. That move was a complete reversal of the administration’s policy during its initial weeks in office when it shut down a similar Trump-authorized investigation by the intelligence community. 

The subsequent intelligence report asserted that the source of the virus could not be determined—that both the natural-origins and the lab-leak hypotheses were plausible. An issue involving such uncertainty obviously should have been a legitimate subject of public debate. However, the self-anointed guardians against disinformation smothered that debate. 

Wall Street Journal columnist Holman W. Jenkins Jr. asked a highly pertinent question: “On what basis was the lab leak theory ruled out for months by the media despite the lack of any evidence or logic for ruling it out?” His answer was an unsettling one. “We in the press dismissed the lab theory because of an appeal to authority: When anti-Donald Trump spokespeople ridiculed it, that was good enough for us.” 

Even if Jenkins is wrong about the blackout being due to pure partisanship, the exclusion of the lab-leak theory from the arena of public debate has been profoundly damaging. The collusion between government and media outlets to suppress maverick views amounted to comprehensive censorship by proxy. Reason’s Robby Soave was correct when he wrote nearly two years ago that “the media’s lab leak debacle shows why banning ‘misinformation’ is a terrible idea.” The new revelations from the DOE report and Wray’s interview should establish that point with great clarity. 

Preventing debate about the origins of the Covid virus almost certainly reduced public pressure in the United States and other countries for a prompt, genuinely independent, investigation of the Wuhan lab and its security protocols. Whether intentionally or not, the blackout of debate aided the Beijing government’s campaign to exonerate the PRC of any culpability. After such a lengthy passage of time, we now may never be able to discover essential facts. 

Enthusiasts for barring the lab-leak thesis as disinformation not only prevented an important inquiry regarding a crucial issue; they damaged the values of free speech and democratic debate. (Disinformation and the Wuhan Lab Leak Thesis.)

New emails uncovered by House Republicans probing the COVID-19 pandemic reveal the deceptive nature of Dr. Anthony Fauci.  

They show he “prompted” or commissioned — and had final approval on — a scientific paper written specifically in February 2020 to disprove the theory that the virus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China. 

Eight weeks later, Fauci stood at a White House press conference alongside President Donald Trump and cited that paper as evidence that the lab leak theory was implausible while pretending it had nothing to do with him and he did not know the authors.

“There was a study recently,” he told reporters on April 17, 2020, when asked if the virus could have come from a Chinese lab, “where a group of highly qualified evolutionary virologists looked at the sequences … in bats as they evolve and the mutations that it took to get to the point where it is now is totally consistent with a jump of a species from an animal to a human. 

“So, the paper will be available. I don’t have the authors right now, but we can make it available to you.”

hat paper, titled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” was sent to Fauci for editing in draft form and again for final approval before it was published in Nature Medicine on Feb. 17, 2020. 

It was written four days after Fauci, and his NIH boss Dr. Francis Collins, held a call with the four authors to discuss reports that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan lab and “may have been intentionally genetically manipulated.” 

The House Oversight subcommittee published emails Sunday in which the paper’s co-author Dr. Kristian Andersen admits Fauci “prompted” him to write the paper with the goal to “disprove” the lab leak theory.

On Feb. 12, 2020, Andersen submitted the paper to Nature Medicine with a cover email: “There has been a lot of speculation, fear-mongering, and conspiracies put forward in this space. [This paper was] Prompted by Jeremy Farrah [sic], Tony Fauci, and Francis Collins.”

Farrar, then head of British nonprofit the Wellcome Trust, which has historic ties to the pharmaceutical industry and the Gates Foundation, was rewarded with the plum role of chief scientist at the World Health Organization last December.

On the day the “Proximal Origin” paper was published, emails show Farrar pushing through a crucial change: “Sorry to micromanage/micro edit! But would you be willing to change one sentence?”

Farrar’s change was to replace the word “unlikely” with “improbable” in a statement about the lab leak origin, so it would read: “It is improbable that SARS-CoV-2 emerged through laboratory manipulation of an existing SARS-related coronavirus.”

Improbable means having a probability too low to inspire belief; unbelievable, even ridiculous.

That’s what Fauci and friends wanted us to think of the lab leak theory that looked probable from the get-go, as one dissenting scientist said at the time, and looks more probable by the day.

The question of why Fauci went to such an effort to obscure the origins of COVID-19 is a major focus of the GOP-led committee. 

While they’re at it, they should quiz the Biden administration’s new “US negotiator for the pandemic accord” at the WHO, Ambassador Pamela Hamamoto, a former campaign bundler and Hawaii schoolmate of Barack Obama. 

Last month she sided with China to keep deliberations around this new international pandemic treaty secret. 

What are they trying to hide? (New emails show Fauci commissioned paper to disprove Wuhan lab leak theory.)

Anthony Fauci is one of those who is incapable of being shamed. This supporter of perversity and the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn is a scheming deceiver who refuses to accept any responsibility for how his “leadership,” such as it was, resulted in the deaths of so many people in 2020 and 2021, the destroyed the lives and livelihoods of untold thousands of people, turned family and friends against one another, and accustomed a large percentage of people into believing the “experts” and accepting all limitations on their legitimate human freedoms even though no real “emergency” existed. 

One secular commentator went so far as to assert that the public health sector’s suppression of truth is the biggest scandal in American history, and that in itself is quite a statement given the long history of this nation’s governmental scandals:

We are living through the largest, deadliest scandal in American history, but the elite media refuses to connect the dots and analyze it.

COVID-19, a disease no one disputes came from Wuhan, China, has killed more than 1.1 million Americans and more than 6.8 million people worldwide. It has left millions of others with chronic health problems.

Because of the teachers’ unions and totally misguided, destructive public health policies, children who were under virtually no risk from COVID-19 have lost at least a year of education. Many children are suffering from depression and other mental health challenges from the forced isolation and lack of social contact.

Now, it is becoming more clear that much of this pain was avoidable – and the result of powerful government employees protecting themselves. As Jarrett Stepman in The Daily Signal wrote:

"In 2020, if you thought it was possible COVID-19 came from a lab in China you were labeled a conspiracy theorist, a peddler of misinformation, ‘bonkers,’ and a racist.

"Facebook and other social media removed the lab leak claim from their apps or slapped ‘misinformation’ labels on it. Facebook did so in lockstep with the government.

"So according to the standard set in 2020, the Department of Energy just came out as a racist purveyor of misinformation this week.

"The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that, according to a classified intelligence report provided to the White House and Congress, the Department of Energy concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic likely came from a lab leak.

‘"The Energy Department’s conclusion is the result of new intelligence and is significant because the agency has considerable scientific expertise and oversees a network of U.S. national laboratories, some of which conduct advanced biological research,’ the Wall Street Journal report said."

President Donald Trump called it "the Chinese Virus" and was intensely attacked. Somehow the word "Chinese" was deemed racist. No one disputes that the virus originated in China. But calling it COVID-19 rather than the Chinese virus was more polite. (After all, it’s important to indicate an appropriate sensitivity to the totalitarian dictatorship that is trying to defeat the United States and become the world’s leading power.)

We now know this censorship and speech silencing was part of a systematic effort of senior scientists to mislead the American people. When COVID-19 first became a threat in early 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci already knew the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) had funded research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology via EcoHealth Alliance. He knew the WIV was a subgrantee of EcoHealth Alliance – and that EcoHealth Alliance was not in compliance with its grant reporting. Specifically, the organization was out of compliance for a project that NIAID knew could potentially make novel bat-borne coronaviruses much more dangerous.

Fauci knew all this.

According to Kentucky Rep. James Comer, who is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, on Feb. 1, 2020, "Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and at least eleven other scientists convened a conference call to discuss COVID-19. On the conference call, Drs. Fauci and Collins were first warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from the WIV and may have been intentionally genetically manipulated."

The scientists decided to remain silent to avoid controversy (which would have ultimately fallen back on themselves).

This perfectly captures the arrogance of the aristo-bureaucrats, who believe they are intellectually and morally superior to the people to whom they are supposed to be accountable. They believe they have the right and duty to censor what we think and say – and to feed us falsehoods in the name of some higher duty.

This scandal of many of our best professional researchers lying to the American people is compounded by the absolute failure of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Why there has not been a scathing and thorough investigation – and set of hearings on the absolute inability of the bureaucrats in Atlanta to do their jobs – and the general failure of the public health system across the country is a mystery to me. This lack of introspection or investigation should itself be a scandal.

Driven by the economic impact of the Chinese virus, the American government spent trillions of dollars propping up the economy, sparking inflation, massively increasing the national debt, and permitting hundreds of billions in theft and corruption.

Finally, there has been no serious effort to hold the Chinese Communist dictatorship accountable for the damage it has done around the world. There is ample precedent for holding governments responsible for the damage they have done to others (the Lockerbie bombing, the Iranian hostage crisis, 9/11, and other cases).

The Chinese Communists have continuously focused on stopping us from understanding the origins of the pandemic. As Dave Boyer reported in the Washington Times, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray confirmed his agency believes the COVID-19 pandemic likely started from a lab leak in Wuhan, China. He told Fox News on Tuesday that "the FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan… Here you are talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab.

As Boyer reported, "Mr. Wray also slammed Beijing for stonewalling international efforts to find out what happened. ‘I will just make the observation that the Chinese government, it seems to me, has been doing its best to try to thwart, and obfuscate the work here, the work that we’re doing, the work that our U.S. government and close foreign partners are doing. And that’s unfortunate for everybody,’ he said."

Clearly there ought to be a mechanism for making the Chinese Communist dictatorship pay COVID-19 victims for the disaster it caused. One step might be a COVID-19 tariff on all Chinese imports (the proceeds of which would go into a COVID-19 Compensation Fund that every American family affected by the pandemic could apply to).

Other countries could be urged to establish similar tariffs. Then Xi Jinping and his dictatorship would learn that lying, covering up, and hiding the truth has enormous costs for those guilty of killing millions and forcing the spending of trillions.

This scandal is so large, and covers so many areas, it will be a major factor in politics and government for the next decade. It will go down in history as a turning point in our lives and the life of our country.

We just need to decide what direction we turn: toward clarity and accountability, or toward lies and chaos. (This is the biggest scandal in American history.)

Dr. Anthony Faucui had every reason to cover up the truth.  

Documents show he played a vital role in funneling through a third party roughly $600,000 in taxpayer money to the Wuhan laboratory in China where the deadly COVID virus may well have leaked. The funds were earmarked for dangerous gain-of-function research that can transform a virus into a lethal "superbug." 

On Wednesday, Dr. Robert Redfield, an experienced virologist who served as the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, testified at a hearing on Capitol Hill that "it is not scientifically plausible" that the virus somehow originated in animals or bats and then spread to humans.   

Fauci knew this because Redfield and four other knowledgeable experts told him so. But Fauci — an immunologist, not a virologist — feared that his suspected complicity in engineering the virus would be revealed. He was determined to suppress the lab leak evidence and, instead, peddle the natural origin theory to the public. He "wanted a single narrative," said Redfield. That "inaccurate" narrative appears to be an effort to absolve himself in the deadliest man-made catastrophe in history.     

Some 6.87 million people worldwide were killed as 760 million became infected. More than a million Americans have died. Did Fauci play a role in causing those deaths? His cover-up suggests he thought so.

Fauci was warned by fellow scientists at the outset of the pandemic in late January and early February of 2020 that the COVID-19 contagion contained unusual features that "(potentially) look engineered inside a laboratory," according to emails. Alarmed, Fauci kicked his deception into overdrive with a deliberate misinformation scheme.  

He covertly commissioned and edited a scientific paper that was published three weeks later that debunked the lab leak hypothesis. Then, while concealing how he instigated the analysis, Fauci publicly touted it as the definitive scientific verdict on COVID’s genesis.  

All the while, he hid his involvement and pretended not to know the co-authors with whom he had secretly worked. Citing the paper, Fauci emphatically told Americans that COVID "could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated."    

The scientists who published the hasty study had previously confided to Fauci that the virus likely came from a lab but reversed themselves in a matter of three days. Dr. Redfield called that about-face "antithetical to science" and accused Fauci of "an attempt to misguide and redirect debate." 

It is curious that those same scientists became the beneficiaries of millions of dollars in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under Fauci after their reversal. 

But that’s not all. Recently revealed records show that Fauci colluded with social media platforms to suppress posts that raised the validity of the lab leak theory and discredit anyone who dared to question his contrived narrative.  

Two years ago, I penned a column for Fox News Opinion stating that Fauci should be criminally investigated into whether he lied to Congress when he flatly denied that his agency helped fund the Wuhan research.  

"The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute," he told a disbelieving Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.  Afterward, Sen. Paul declared that Fauci had lied. The documented evidence supports that conclusion. In his testimony Wednesday, Dr. Redfield said, "There is no doubt the NIH funded gain-of-function research" at the Chinese lab. 

In the past, Fauci described it as "reverse genetics," which he energetically endorsed despite its known hazards. He never understood the grave consequences of a leak that could kill millions of innocent people. Or perhaps he didn’t care.  

The NIH money sent to the Wuhan lab was specifically designated for "reverse genetics," according to the written grant. This is compelling evidence that Fauci was not truthful when he testified that the NIH did not fund gain-of-function research.     

Intentionally lying while under oath to Congress about a material matter constitutes the felony of perjury (18 USC 1621). The giving of knowingly false and misleading statements during testimony (18 USC 1001) is an equivalent crime regardless of whether the person is under oath. Both offenses result in the same punishment of up to five years behind bars upon conviction.  

As I have argued before, there is more than sufficient evidence to justify an investigation by the Department of Justice as to whether Fauci gave deliberately deceptive or false testimony when he appeared before a Senate committee. 

As the evidence against him mounts, the chronicles of Dr. Anthony Fauci demand a sober reassessment. The man who was lionized as "America’s doctor" is not the saintly figure that he and a sycophantic media have long portrayed. (Anthony Fauci hid the truth about COVID, until now. Also see Why did the scientists deceive everyone about COVID-19?.)

Gregg Jarrett knows the United States Code very well. He cited it repeatedly during the Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton email scandals and during the Russia Collusion delusion. However, nothing happened to Madame Defarge. Nothing happened to any of those who did her bidding within the United States Department of Justice and its Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Russia Collusion delusion. Does any sane individual believe that Merrick Garland, of all people, is going to prosecute Anthony Fauci for lying to Congress? Fauci was in Red China’s hip pocket, and that is exactly where Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and his family of grifters are to be found as well.

A witness who testified recently before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic took direct aim at the Communist Chinese government for their role to make possible the “accidental” leak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in 2019:

An expert witness who testified at the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic hearing on the origins of COVID-19 slammed China for stonewalling international investigators. 

Dr. Jamie Metzl, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, told lawmakers Wednesday that a bipartisan investigation into the origins of COVID-19 is "three years overdue" and must prioritize holding China accountable for its lack of transparency during the pandemic. 

"We are primarily here because the Chinese government has done everything in its power to prevent the type of investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic that is three years overdue and still urgently required. We are also here because there is more that we in the United States can and must do to push forward, even if China continues to stonewall," Metzl said in his opening remarks.  

The Chinese government has denied reports that it has refused to cooperate with the World Health Organization's study into the origins of COVID-19. 

report published in Nature on Tuesday said that the WHO canceled the "second phase" of its investigations into the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic because China would not permit researchers access to conduct their studies. 

"China’s position on the study of the origins of SARS-CoV-2 is consistent," Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Wang Wenbin said Wednesday at a press conference in Beijing. "We always support and participate in science-based global origins tracing. At the same time, we firmly oppose all forms of political manipulation."

The spokesman cited two previous envoys of WHO scientists allowed into the country, claiming this demonstrated China was "open" and "transparent" with the international community.

"China has shared more data and research findings on SARS-CoV-2 origins study than any other country," Wang said. "This fully demonstrates China’s open, transparent and responsible attitude and its support for the work of the WHO and SAGO. China will continue to support science-based global origins tracing and keep up communication and cooperation with the WHO."

However, Metzl said that China's flat denial of the lab-leak hypothesis and repeated refusals to turn over data is anything but transparent. 

"While the question of pandemic origins remains open, there can be no doubt that a research-related origin remains a very serious possibility, if not a distinct probability. There is no smoking gun proving a laboratory origin hypothesis, but the growing body of circumstantial evidence suggests a gun that is at very least warm to the touch," he told House lawmakers.  

Metzl said it is "inconceivable" that in the three years since the coronavirus pandemic began there has yet to be a full investigation into the origins of the virus. 

"The primary reason there has been no comprehensive investigation into COVID-19 origins is the reprehensible actions of the Chinese government," he said.  

"Since the early days of the pandemic, China's government has destroyed samples, hidden records, imprisoned brave Chinese journalists, gagged Chinese scientists, actively spread misinformation and done pretty much everything possible to prevent the kind of unfettered, evidence based investigation that is so urgently required," he charged.  

"Every person on earth must demand accountability from China, calling for a full investigation of pandemic origin," Metzl continued, adding that scrutiny on China does not mean the U.S. and others should neglect to scrutinize their own response to the pandemic. 

He said that while the U.S. should continue to seek scientific collaboration and diplomatic relations with China, "we cannot purchase these relationships by our silence." (COVID-19 origins hearing witness blasts China's 'stonewalling'.)

Although very few people are truly paying any kind of attention to these revelations, it is telling that the former director of the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Dr. Robert Redfield, has claimed that he was muscled out of “pandemic” planning by none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci:

 An undeniable example of news media distributing propaganda rather than reliable information was their suppression of the now-vindicated lab leak theory of COVID's origin and the arrogant assertion that it was false. If you pondered this theory out loud on social media in 2020, you were likely to be banned and bizarrely called a racist by journalists too lazy or politically biased to seek the truth.

One would expect better from scientists and public health officials, but sadly, they have been just as bad.

Former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield told lawmakers Wednesday that Dr. Anthony Fauci “sidelined” him from internal debates about the origin of COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic, saying the former White House chief medical adviser did not appreciate Redfield’s support for the so-called “lab leak theory.”

“This was an a priori decision that there’s one point of view that we’re going to put out there, and anyone who doesn’t agree with it is going to be sidelined,” Redfield said at a hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. “And as I say, I was only the CDC director, and I was sidelined.”

Redfield, 71, told Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) that his support for the theory that the coronavirus accidentally emerged from a laboratory in Wuhan, China — rather than jumping from animals to humans — likely prompted his exclusion from high-level discussions of the outbreak.

“I think I made it very clear in January [2020] to all of them why we had to aggressively pursue this,” he said. “And I let them know as a virologist that I didn’t see that this was anything like SARS or MERS. … And they knew that was how I was thinking.”

Redfield added that he was not aware that Fauci and then-National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins had convened a conference call on Feb. 1, 2020 to discuss the worldwide outbreak until internal emails were published by the Washington Post and Buzzfeed News in June 2021.

“I didn’t know there was a February 1 conference call until the Freedom of Information came out with the emails, and I was quite upset, as the CDC director, that I was excluded from those discussions,” he said.

“Why would they do this?” Comer asked.

“Because I had a different point of view,” Redfield responded. “And I was told that they had made a decision that they would keep this confidential until they came up with a single narrative — which I will argue is antithetical to science.”

He added: “Science never selects a single narrative. We foster — as my colleagues just said — we foster debate. And we’re confident that with debate, science will eventually get to the truth.”

The day before the call, on Jan. 31, 2020, Dr. Kristian Andersen and Dr. Robert Garry emailed Fauci pointing out anomalies in the virus that suggested it was not of natural origin — only to backtrack days later under pressure from Fauci.

In his email, Andersen wrote the virus had “unusual features” that “(potentially) look engineered” and that he and other scientists “all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.”

Following the Feb. 1 call, Garry wrote in another email that “I really can’t think of a plausible natural scenario” for the emergence of the virus.

Redfield told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) he was excluded from those emails as well.

“Three years ago, if you thought it came from a lab, you got called a nutjob, you got censored on Twitter, you got blacklisted on Twitter,” Jordan said. “You were even called a crackpot by the very same scientists who in late January [2020] sent emails to Dr. Fauci and said it came from a lab. They called you crackpot. Is that right, Dr. Redfield?”

“I think the most upsetting thing to me was the Baltimore Sun calling me a racist because I said this came from a Wuhan lab,” Redfield replied.

A former New York Times science editor also ripped Fauci during the hearing for repeatedly seeking to discredit the lab leak theory — just days after newly released emails showed the medical adviser commissioned a paper in February 2020 meant to disprove it.

“Fauci was probably not too pleased to hear that the virus might have escaped from research that his agency had funded,” said Nicholas Wade, who also served as an editor for the journals Nature and Science.

Wade was referring to experiments conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology with funding from the National Institutes of Health and Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which was routed to the Chinese institution through the New York-based EcoHealth Alliance.

The journalist and author pointed the finger of blame squarely at Fauci and Collins: “It’s hard to believe that in the twilight of their long careers, they would seriously mishandle an issue as important as the origin of the COVID virus, yet that is what the evidence seems to point to.”

“The national media swallowed the natural origins story unskeptically, and once committed to it, failed to report important contrary evidence,” he added.

Wade noted that within days of the Feb. 1 conference call, Andersen had repudiated his initial suspicions and stood squarely behind the natural origin theory backed by Fauci.

“Andersen in an email on Feb. 4 … [derided] the lab leak as a crackpot theory,” he said. “What made him change his mind? No new scientific evidence came to light.”

In a Feb. 12, 2020 email released by the select committee on Sunday, Andersen said Fauci and Collins had “prompted” him to write a study to debunk the lab leak theory. The email was submitted with an article on the subject to Nature Medicine.

The article was published five days later and was cited by Fauci from the White House briefing room exactly two months after that — with the top doc never revealing his own role in its creation. (Ex-CDC chief: Fauci 'sidelined' me from COVID debate.)

What is tragic about all this important information is that so few people, distracted by the vast panoply of bread and circuses that the adversary uses for purposes of agitation and distraction, either pay any attention to these facts or, if they do, either dismiss them as unimportant or justify

Fauci’s use of subterfuge to transform the people of the United States of America from their “obsession with freedom” to his own preferred mode of governance according to the “enlightened model” used by the repressive, murderous thugs of the so-called People’s Republic of China.

A recent editorial in the New York Post summarized the facts about Dr. Anthony Fauci’s lies as follows:

The beatification of St. Anthony Fauci continues apace, with a PBS “American Masters” docu-stravaganza devoted to him airing last week. 

Does the man behind our disastrous federal pandemic response have any regrets? Yes! the tonguebath film reveals: That he didn’t demand useless lockdowns and universal masking sooner.

“Maybe I should have done that,” he muses. “Yeah, I was wrong.”

That sums it up. Even now, when all available data confirms that nothing — nothing — Fauci did made the slightest difference against the virus, the man is still convinced his only failing was being too soft on his recalcitrant subjects . . . er, the American people.  

Consider his massive flip-flop on masking. Did he make a mistake?

No, he “got additional information” that caused him to change his tune.

What utter bull: The balance of scientific evidence has never shown that mask mandates help against airborne viruses.

The only thing that changed was public health officials’ growing need to recommend something to justify their existence. 

Then there’s his claim, to a vaccine-hesitant DC resident, that the vaccines all but stop transmission.

It’s a “very, very, very rare chance that you do get it even if you’re vaccinated.”


In April of 2022, while Fauci was still in the driver’s seat, more than 60% of new cases nationally were breakthrough infections

He pooh-poohs the lab-leak theory of COVID origins in the film as well: “Like, what are you talking about,” he chortles vapidly. 

Ask the FBI, Department of Energy and countless leading scientists, Tony.

Including some it sure looks like you possibly bullied or bribed into shutting up to conceal your own role in funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 

“American Masters” used to focus on people who made significant cultural contributions to our society, like Billie Holiday, Richard Avedon and Lucille Ball. Fauci sticks out not only for not being an artist or creator, but having made our country worse instead of better. 

The doctor’s anti-science, politically driven COVID strategy — i.e., serial capitulations to progressive hysteria on masking, school closures, lockdowns and vaccinations, as well as desperate efforts at butt-covering — immiserated millions, disrupted society and inflicted irrecoverable learning loss on a generation of school kids. 

Its ugly aftermath can still be seen in everything from our persistent inflation to elevated levels of crime. 

And all for nothing. The US did not perform meaningfully better in terms of overall COVID outcomes than countries that never locked down or masked up. 

Another of his on-camera interlocutors has the Good Doctor’s number, however. “Your campaign is about fear.

It’s about inciting fear in people. You all attack people with fear,” says one skeptic. (Fauci on film is still flinging fear-mongering flim-flam.)

The likes of Fauci and his former White House compatriot, Dr. Deborah Birx, are embedded throughout the global healthcare system, especially in the so-called “public health” sector, pharmaceutical companies, in universities, allegedly “independent” “think tanks,” and throughout the mainslime media, and they all responsible for the completely needless genocide perpetrated against innocent human beings by means of their cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all medical protocols, that called, it should be noted, for late and not early intervention in the virus’s treatment, and, of course, by means of the “vaccines” that injured and killed untold thousands upon thousands of people throughout the world.

The Red Chinese-style censorship that Dr. Anthony Fauci employed to prevent true information about the source of the Wuhan Virus was employed in equal measure to suppress all true scientific information and empirical facts about the harm caused the “vaccines” developed by Donald John Trump’s Operation Warp Speed:

In the latest Twitter Files report published on Friday, journalist and author Matt Taibbi revealed that Twitter partnered with the Virality Project, which warned the social media platform that “true stories that could fuel hesitancy,” complained that “anti-vaccine” accounts were retweeting the CDC, and ironically ran searches for the term “surveillance state” while looking for more information to censor.

“The release of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s spring 2020 emails via the Freedom of Information Act has been used to exacerbate distrust in Dr. Fauci,” the Virality Project lamented in June 2021.

The Virality Project is “a sweeping, cross-platform effort to monitor billons of social media posts by Stanford University, federal agencies, and a slew of (often state-funded) NGOs,” Taibbi noted.

Taibbi went on to say that Friday’s Twitter Files revealed “Reports of vaccinated individuals contracting Covid-19 anyway,” “natural immunity,” suggesting Covid-19 “leaked from a lab,” and even “worrisome jokes” were all characterized as “potential violations” or disinformation “events” by the Virality Project.

We’ve since learned the Virality Project in 2021 worked with government to launch a pan-industry monitoring plan for Covid-related content,” Taibbi said. “At least six major Internet platforms were ‘onboarded’ to the same JIRA ticketing system, daily sending millions of items for review.”

The journalist added that the Virality Project had “knowingly targeted true material and legitimate political opinion, while often being factually wrong itself.”

“As Orwellian proof-of-concept, the Virality Project was a smash success,” he said. “Government, academia, and an oligopoly of would-be corporate competitors organized quickly behind a secret, unified effort to control political messaging.”

The Virality Project had also “accelerated the evolution of digital censorship, moving it from judging truth/untruth to a new, scarier model, openly focused on political narrative at the expense of fact,” Taibbi said.

The Twitter Files also revealed that on February 5, 2021, right after President Joe Biden took office, Stanford wrote to Twitter to discuss the Virality Project. Shortly after that, Twitter agreed to receive weekly reports on “anti-vax disinformation.”

The Virality Project also warned Twitter that “true stories that could fuel hesitancy,” including stories such as “celebrity deaths after vaccine,” as well as the closure of a central New York school due to reports of post-vaccine illness.

The organization suggested that stories like these be considered “Standard Vaccine Misinformation on Your Platform.”

In one email to Twitter, the Virality Project mentioned what it called the “vaccine passport narrative,” saying “concerns” over such programs “have driven a larger anti-vaccination narrative about the loss of rights and freedoms.”

The organization also framed this as a misinformation “event.”

The Virality Project routinely framed real testimonials about vaccine side effects as misinformation — from “true stories” of blood clots from AstraZeneca vaccines, to a New York Times story about vaccine recipients who contracted the blood disorder thrombocytopenia, Taibbi said.

The Virality Project also warned against people “just asking questions,” suggesting it was a tactic “commonly used by spreaders of misinformation.”

Twitter employees eventually mimicked Virality Project language, describing “campaigns against vaccine passports,” “fear of mandatory immunizations,” and “misuse of official reporting tools” as “potential violations.”

“While this account posts legitimate and accurate COVID-19 updates — it posts content that attacks Italian politicians, the EU, and the United States,” the Global Engagement Center complained to Twitter in an email.

The Twitter Files also reveal an email in which the Virality Project implored Twitter to “hone in” on an “increasingly popular narrative about natural immunity.”

But the organization was “repeatedly, extravagantly wrong,” Taibbi said, noting one example in April 2021, when the Virality Project mistakenly described “breakthrough” infections as “extremely rare events” that should not be inferred to mean “vaccines are ineffective.”

Later, after the CDC changed its methodology for counting cases of the Chinese coronavirus among vaccinated people to only include those resulting in hospitalization or death, the Virality Project complained that “anti-vaccine” accounts were retweeting the information.

Finally, in an amusing yet chilling case of irony, the Twitter Files also revealed that the Virality Project ran searches for the term “surveillance state.”

A year later, the organization issued a report calling for a “rumor-control mechanism to address nationally trending narratives,” and a “Misinformation and Disinformation Center of Excellence” to be housed within CISA, at the Department of Homeland Security.

And one day later, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas infamously announced that a “Disinformation Governance Board” had been created, and that it was to be led by censor Nina Jankowicz. (Twitter Files: The 'Great Covid-19 Lie Machine' Worked to Censor 'True Stories'.)

Suppressing truth, disseminating lies,

Just another day’s work for the totalitarians who like to play God in life without realizing that they face a harsh judgment after death if they do not repent and convert to the Holy Faith beforehand.

The Cookie-Cutter Strategy Killed People

It was after Dr. Anthony Fauci was chosen to be the "czar” overseeing the Federal government’s “response” to the coronavirus outbreak that he, a career apparatchik, became a ubiquitous presence on television, radio, and the various forms that are called by the masses as “social communication.” Throughout his newfound fame and the popularity that accompanied it in 2020. Fauci disparaged the role of natural immunity, exaggerated the virus’s lethal potential, discouraged early doctors to intervene early once cases of the virus had been diagnosed, and constantly shut down all discussion of advantages to be found in treating patients with hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and massive doses of Vitamins C and D as well as Zinc tailored to the specific needs, the general health, and the age of each patient.

Dr. Peter McCullough wrote the following commentary explaining how the rejection of early intervention in the case of high risk (the elderly, those suffering from preexisting comorbidities) patients who had contracted the virus was responsible for deaths among them in the State of Texas, noting that the deaths had nothing to do with lower vaccination rates in the Lone Star State:

Recently a tweet popped up implying that lower Texas vaccination rates were responsible for deaths with COVID-19 through 2021 and mid 2022. I live in Texas and have been treating patients with high risk COVID-19 from the very start of the crisis.

Despite all the hopes and aspirations for those pushing vaccine ideology, prospective, randomized, double-blind placebo controlled trials in 2020 never demonstrated reductions in hospitalization and death. As a result, no therapeutic claim of survival can be made by anyone. Reduction in the risk of death is listed in the “benefit” section of vaccine consent form. COVID-19 vaccines have never saved lives.

Of the ~90,000 deaths through September 1, 2022, and ~40,000 after May 1, 2022 when vaccines had been widely deployed for five months, none of them were prevented by COVID-19 vaccination. By December, 2021, failure of COVID-19 vaccines was very obvious with the Omicron outbreak which was largely among the fully vaccinated.


Adapted from Hotez PJ (2022) The great Texas COVID tragedy. PLOS Glob Public Health 2(10): e0001173.

The real tragedy in Texas and all over the world was the absolute or relative lack of early combination therapeutics at home in high risk COVID-19. Gkioulekas et al concluded that by December of 2020, we had clear and convincing evidence (P<0.01) that early treatment was effective in reducing hospitalization death, a claim that could never be made for COVID-19 vaccines. Verkerk et al demonstrated the vast majority of hospitalizations and deaths occurred as a result of little or no access to early combination therapy. Failure to treat resulting in avoidable death is always a tragedy.

In conclusion, readers of the peer-reviewed literature and social media should be wary of vaccine ideology as promoted by those with a vested interest in developing vaccines, NIH funding, or close ties to the biopharmaceutical complex. Early therapeutics has been a bright spot in the pandemic. High-risk index cases among the vaccinated and unvaccinated benefitted from compassionate care which was the best chance to survive the illness and avoid hospitalization and death. (Great Texas COVID-19 Tragedy.)

In other words, Doctors Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx, Francis Collins, et al., worked actively to prevent early intervention and to disparage, if not entirely forbid, the use of common-sense remedies, many of which are to be found on an over-the-counter basis, something that Dr. McCullough explained in some detail:

Over three years into the pandemic with nearly the entire country having become sick with SARS-CoV-2, a virus engineered to invade the body, there are millions suffering with long-hauler syndrome. Approximately half of patients admitted to the ICU with COVID-19 will have post-COVID syndrome which is now understood to be due to persistence of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein within cells, tissues, and organs. Those vaccinated have been additionally loaded with Spike, so may have even a worse course with prolonged symptoms including fatigue, lethargy, brain fog, muscle loss, skin and hair changes, sleeplessness, and effort intolerance. The magnitude of the problem has driven an all-encompassing search for management strategies to resolve the syndrome(s).


Hope is on the horizon with a preprint paper published by Halma et al summarizing the prescription drug and over-the-counter candidates for therapy. In my practice, I stylize the approach based on the patient and how recent the COVID-19 infection was in their history. If there are lingering signs of infection, then a course of full dose ivermectin can be considered. Aspirin is reasonable given increased rates of heart attack and stroke after the illness. I have found the colchicine appears to have an important role in pleurodynia or chest wall discomfort. Additionally it is used with corticosteroids in vaccine-induced myopericarditis. Low-dose naltrexone has been reported to ameliorate fatigue and inanition. Metformin has supportive data and would be appropriate in pre-diabetes and those with diabetes mellitus.
