Good report from Carlson, reported by Breitbart. Grammie Winger asked a good question in the last thread: Why are people making these deadly Frankenviruses at all?
The answer is -- supposedly! -- that if scientists can create possible future mutated forms of virus, we'll have a head start in vaccinating against them/curing them if/when they do arise.
This seems absurd to me, given that viruses are very sloppy reproducers are mutate at the drop of a hat, so it seems we could never predict what form a future mutation would take. But maybe they mean we'll just glean vague "insights" from this gene splicing of new plagues? I don't know.
But that's the supposed rationale for this extraordinarily dangerous work, which almost surely resulted in the covid pandemic which locked down the world for coming up on two years and killed 3,000,000.
Fauci's determination to rule out the lab-leak hypothesis is deliberately withholding from the public absolutely critical information: If we are to evaluate the costs and benefits of making new viruses to study them and cure future viruses, we have to know how often these invented frankenviruses escape the lab and kill people.
And what the monetary costs of such outbreaks are. We need to know, bluntly, how many people we're killing or will kill via inevitable outbreaks of our artificial viruses versus how many people will die if we don't make these frankenviruses. We need to know this to have any kind of an informed view of the matter.
But Fauci will absolutely not concede that it is likely or even possible that the Wuhan Institute of Virology, whose Dr. Shi specialized in experimenting in bat viruses to make them infect humans, was involved in spreading a bat virus which could infect humans in Wuhan, blocks away from the Wuhan Institute. He's denying us an honest appraisal of the risks and costs of his demented drive to create new plagues.
Carlson's indictment of Fauci is very persuasive:
Millions of people have died of COVID-19. So it's not a matter of score-settling or blame assignment to figure out where it came from. If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started.
And so the World Health Organization said it would get to the bottom of it.
The World Health Organization, of course, is beholden to China, and so it tried to hide the basic facts of the origins of this pandemic. And to hide those facts, WHO appointed none other than Peter Daszak as the only America-based representative on the investigative team looking into where the virus came from. In what turned out to be a sham report, that team concluded that it is quote, "extremely unlikely" that the virus came from the Wuhan lab.
Again, that's not true. The WHO's investigation in the origins of the virus was fraudulent and that matters to public health globally. But one thing you'll notice is that Tony Fauci did not say that. Why? Because once again, he is implicated in it personally.
The gain-of-function research that Peter Daszak was bragging about in the video we just showed you had in fact, been banned explicitly by the U.S. government. There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on at the Wuhan lab due to disastrous effects.
So why didn�t the U.S. government halt its funding of the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question and Nicholas Wade, to his great credit, looked into it.
And here's what he found, quote,
"Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding of any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on page two of the moratorium document states that quote, 'an exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the U.S. government funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.'"
And that's exactly the loophole that was exploited. Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci, possibly, along with Francis Collins, the Director of the NIH invoked that special exemption in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab and the deadly experiments that were going on there, the experiments that clearly went so wrong.
According to Richard Ebright quote, "Unfortunately, the NIAID Director (that would be Fauci) and the NIH Director exploited this loophole to issue exemptions to projects subject to pause, preposterously asserting that the exempted research was, quote, 'urgently necessary to protect public health or national security and thereby nullifying the pause.'"
This wouldn�t have happened if Tony Fauci didn't allow it to happen. That is clear. It�s an amazing story. It is a shocking story.
In a functional country, there would be a criminal investigation currently underway into Tony Fauci's role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country and changed it forever.
So why isn't there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci's role in this pandemic
