Report: Dr Fauci Backed Wuhan Lab Doing ‘Crazy’ Coronavirus Research

Infectious disease experts say research ‘enhanced the ability of bat coronavirus to infect human cells.’

Newsweek has highlighted that the Chinese Scientists who were said to have been doing ‘crazy’ things with coronavirus in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, were funded by the White House senior health advisor Dr Anthony Fauci just last year.

The report notes that in 2019 Fauci, as head of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), backed the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding commitment of $3.7 million for a further six years of research on bat coronaviruses in the Chinese lab.

The report also noted that the research outline included manipulating viruses in the lab in order to gauge the potential for infection in humans.

The funding, which has now been halted by the Trump administration, was in addition to the previous $3.7 million provided to the Chinese lab between 2014-2019.

Therefore, a total of $7.4 million had been provided for the Chinese coronavirus research, according to the report.

According to Rutgers University infectious disease expert Richard Ebright, the description of the research indicates that experiments were being carried out that would “enhance the ability of bat coronavirus to infect human cells and laboratory animals using techniques of genetic engineering.”

Ebright, has previously said that a lab leak causing the pandemic cannot be ruled out until it is properly investigated.

In addition, a world renowned Russian microbiologist claimed last week that the novel coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of Wuhan scientists doing “absolutely crazy things” in their lab.

The Newsweek report notes that over 200 scientists called for the work going on in the Wuhan lab, as well as other Chinese facilities to be halted, specifically warning that it “increased the likelihood that a pandemic would occur through a laboratory accident.”

However, Dr. Fauci defended the research, writing in the Washington Post on December 30, 2011 “[D]etermining the molecular Achilles’ heel of these viruses can allow scientists to identify novel antiviral drug targets that could be used to prevent infection in those at risk or to better treat those who become infected.”

The report notes that while the research was temporarily impeded due to such concerns in 2014, it began again in 2017 after secret reviews were conducted by the NIH.

Last year, the research again came under criticism from scientists.

“We have serious doubts about whether these experiments should be conducted at all,” wrote Tom Inglesby of Johns Hopkins University and Marc Lipsitch of Harvard. “[W]ith deliberations kept behind closed doors, none of us will have the opportunity to understand how the government arrived at these decisions or to judge the rigor and integrity of that process.”

Newsweek says that Dr. Fauci did not respond to requests for comment, however the NIH responded with a statement that said “Most emerging human viruses come from wildlife, and these represent a significant threat to public health and biosecurity in the US and globally, as demonstrated by the SARS epidemic of 2002-03, and the current COVID-19 pandemic…. scientific research indicates that there is no evidence that suggests the virus was created in a laboratory.”

Dubious YouGov Poll Says Vast Majority of Brits Support COVID Restrictions

Reality begs to differ.

Another dubious YouGov poll has found that the vast majority of Brits support the reintroduction of COVID restrictions such as mask mandates, despite little evidence of that being practiced in the real world.

With lockdown fetishists attempting to pressure the government into reversing so-called “freedom day,” when mask mandates and other restrictions were lifted, a new survey was released claiming that the idea had widespread support from the British public.

According to the poll, 81 per cent support mandatory masks on public transport, while 76 per cent support the same rule in shops. 67 per cent want mandatory social distancing in pubs and restaurants.

“More nonsense, no ones doing any of this NOW,” pointed out Adam Brooks. “I suggest these are either manipulated polls or are just people who do not go out.”

Indeed, a previous poll by YouGov claimed only 60% were still wearing face masks in public.

That figure is also likely inflated by those who want to give the ‘responsible’ answer, no matter whether they actually wear masks or not.

In reality, anyone who lives in major cities like London (as I do) can tell you that even with the sustained fearmongering of the media, a small minority are wearing masks outside while inside shops the figure is roughly 50 per cent. Inside pubs, it’s barely 10 per cent.

Social distancing inside pubs is also virtually non-existent at this point.

As Maajid Nawaz points out, YouGov poll results about COVID-19 have long been held in suspicion given that its founder is former UK vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi MP.

The firm’s major shareholder is Blackrock, a transnational investment firm which The New Republic wrote “was having a very good pandemic” by casting “itself as socially responsible.”

Last year, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said that Americans should wear face masks if they wished to see an economic recovery.

Others questioned the reliability of the poll given its small sample size and the firm’s refusal to detail its participant selection criteria.

“Percentage of people who believe Yougov polls: 0%,” joked another respondent.

As with most such polls, the respondents are always heavily skewed towards older people with home phones who are more likely to support lockdown measures.

As we previously highlighted, the hysteria being peddled by the media and health technocrats to coerce the public into supporting the reintroduction of COVID restrictions deliberately omits the fact that the recent ‘spike’ in COVID cases was driven by the mass testing of schoolchildren.

Over the last week, cases have already begun to drop as the fearmongering alarmists are proven wrong yet again.

Washington State Reps Warn Governor Just Got A “Blank Check” To Force Vaccine Mandates On ALL Private Businesses

“Adopting such a broad, vague rule without clear direction will lead to arbitrary enforcement”

Republican representatives in Washington State warned Monday that the Department or Labor and Industries (L&I) just handed an extension of emergency powers to Democrat Governor Jay Inslee, effectively allowing him to force vaccine mandates on all private businesses.

In a statement, Jim Walsh (R-Aberdeen) and Jesse Young (R-Gig Harbor) urged “This mandate from L&I demonstrates a complete lack of transparency, which dilutes public trust in our government and fails to show the agency’s good faith in promulgating the rule. The reality is this move by L&I is a blank check for the agency to enforce any of the Governor’s mandates or edicts on private employers.” 

“If L&I desires to make such a rule, it should do so in an open and transparent manner that allows public review and comment,” the reps continued, adding “Even if an opportunity for review and comment is not afforded the public, L&I’s website should host the proposed rulemaking to grant easy access to the public.”

“Furthermore, adopting such a broad, vague rule without clear direction will lead to arbitrary enforcement,” Walsh and Young further warned.

The reps also emphasised “There is no clear case for ‘good cause’ or ‘the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare’ as the governor’s proclamation already addresses these issues, making L&I’s mandate arbitrary and capricious.”

“We call on the governor to immediately repeal this mandate. If L&I wants to push this policy, it needs to go through the proper channels and work with the Legislature,” the statement concludes.

The warning follows a video posted by Walsh last week in which he demonstrated that he was being prevented from entering Capitol buildings in Olympia for not providing proof of vaccination:

Inslee has been enforcing mandates in the state that have seen hundreds of law enforcement officers, firefighters and other government workers and contractors walking off the job after refusing to take vaccines.

On Sunday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky declared that the Biden regime is planning to provide vaccine hesitant police and other government workers with “education and counseling” to make them “comfortable” about taking the shots.
