Scientist At Center Of Lab Leak Controversy Put In Charge Of The Lancet’s Task Force To Investigate Virus Origin

ANYBODY but this guy would be more suitable

Revered scientific journal The Lancet has created a ‘task force’ to investigate the origins of the coronavirus that caused a global pandemic, yet it has decided to employ as its leader the very guy who funded the dangerous gain of function research at the Wuhan lab and subsequently allegedly ‘bullied’ other scientists into avoiding looking into the lab as a potential source of the outbreak.

In the wake of renewed scrutiny of the lab leak hypothesis, the Lancet’s task force will reportedly “focus on analyzing data on all of the theories put forward on the origins of COVID, on the reasons why SARS-CoV-2 was able to break out of Wuhan and spread globally, and on the most plausible strategies to prevent future pandemics.”

It also states that “The Task Force will review thoroughly and objectively all publicly available evidence, particularly the peer-reviewed literature, and conduct interviews with key leaders in science, medicine, policy and civil society.”

‘Objectively’. Right.

Dr Peter Daszak, who is heading up this task force, is perhaps the least suitable scientist on the planet to objectively analyse the data, given his track record.

Daszak, as President of the EcoHealth Alliance, shovelled at least $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the past few years to play around with coronaviruses inside the lab through the now infamous ‘gain of function’ research.

Daszak, who also works for the World Health Organisation, is on record admitting that he was involved with manipulating coronaviruses. Here is a video of him talking in DECEMBER 2019 about how ‘good’ the viruses are for altering in a lab:

Daszak notes that “coronaviruses are pretty good… you can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily… the spiked proteins drive a lot about what happens. You can get the sequence you can build the protein, we work with Ralph Baric at UNC to do this, insert into the backbone of another virus and do some work in a lab.”

No wonder then that Daszak as lead investigator for the WHO investigation  determined within 3 hours of visiting the Wuhan lab in February 2021 that there was ‘nothing to see here’?

Recently released emails now document that Daszak thanked Dr Fauci for dismissing the lab leak theory before any scientific research had been done on the possibility.

Daszak was later employed as an ‘expert fact checker’ by Facebook when it was monitoring and removing ‘misinformation’ about the origins of COVID on its platform, much of which was credible scientific research. Facebook has since reversed the policy of banning any posts containing information suggesting COVID-19 was “man-made”.

Daszak’s Twitter profile is basically one long ‘it came from bats not a lab’ thread, much to the annoyance of some other scientists:

Why does this guy keep getting put in charge of investigations, task forces and ‘fact checking’, when it’s abundantly clear that he has the biggest motive to dismiss the lab leak notion?

As microbiologist Professor Richard Ebright has noted, “Daszak was the contractor who funded the laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that potentially was the source of the virus with subcontracts from $200million [£142million] from the US Department of State and $7million [£5million] from the US National Institutes of Health and he was a collaborator and co-author on research projects at the laboratory.”

Daszak has already lied about the type of research that was being conducted at the Wuhan lab, claiming, after the outbreak happened, that he didn’t know if it was gain of function or not. His own previous statements, and the Fauci emails prove he knew full well what was going on in the lab.

In addition, as reported by The Daily Mail and other outlets, Daszak “orchestrated a ‘bullying’ campaign and coerced top scientists into signing off on a letter to The Lancet aimed at removing blame for Covid-19 from the Wuhan lab he was funding with US money.”

Daszak used his influence to get the journal to publish the letter, which stated that to even suggest the lab leak theory had any credibility was equal to spreading “fear, rumours, and prejudice.”

It effetely shut down discussion among the scientific ‘consensus’ of the lab leak potential for a whole year until intelligence findings brought the matter back to the attention of the mainstream media.

WHO scientific advisor Jamie Metzl described Daszak’s letter as “scientific propaganda and a form of thuggery and intimidation.”

“By labelling anyone with different views a conspiracy theorist, the Lancet letter was the worst form of bullying in full contravention of the scientific method,” Metzl added.

The letter further stated that “We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that Covid-19 does not have a natural origin,” and even had the audacity to state that “We declare no competing interests.”

Indeed, Daszak had made sure that the letter would be devoid of any link to EcoHealth, and even considered leaving his own name off it, emails released via the Freedom of Information Act have revealed.

To make matters worse, the other members of The Lancet’s task force are practically all minions of Daszak, some of whom helped him draft the letter that unequivocally stated the lab leak theory was dangerous, and others who either worked with him on ‘fact checking’ for Facebook, or were cited as sources during that activity.

Taking all this into account, it is obvious what the outcome of The Lancet’s inquiry will be, and it should not and cannot be used as credible evidence against the lab leak theory.

Video: Rand Paul Calls NIH Director “Stupid” After Call To Wear Masks At Home

“There is no science to defend putting your kids in masks or parents wearing masks—no science whatsoever.”

Senator Rand Paul denounced “stupid” comments made on CNN by National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins, after the direct underling of Anthony Fauci declared that parents with children under the age of 12 should wear face masks INSIDE their own homes.

Appearing on Fox News, an exasperated Paul urged “How can people who are so smart say such stupid things?”

Watch:

“There is no science to defend putting your kids in masks or parents wearing masks—no science whatsoever,” Paul emphasised, adding “If there were, we would be wearing masks for years and years because for kids, the death rate is about the same as the seasonal flu. It may be less than the seasonal flu.”

The Senator continued, “So, is Francis Collins proposing that because the flu is with us forever that parents should be wearing masks around their kids that have the flu? It is absolutely and utterly without scientific evidence!”

Going on to speak regarding the government fear mongering over the Delta (or Indian) variant of the virus, Paul said “Now, they’re all freaking out right now about the Delta variant. One thing is—in all likelihood true—it is more transmissible, significantly more transmissible, but guess what? Every bit of evidence shows that it’s less deadly—significantly less deadly.”

“Public Health England looked at 92,000 people. If you were vaccinated and under 50, there were no deaths. If you were unvaccinated and under 50, .08%—still very, very small. So, it’s not an argument for not getting vaccinated. It’s an argument for not getting hysterical over the Delta variant,” Paul further urged.

He continued “We shouldn’t be changing any mandates and really, in all likelihood, the masks didn’t affect the trajectory of the virus at all.”

Paul, a qualified physician, further explained “The only thing that’s slowing the virus down is the vaccine and natural immunity and they continue to ignore natural immunity because they think we are too far behind.”

“We got to vaccinate the children but, in reality I think it’s 90% of people over 65 have been vaccinated. That’s extraordinary. We should be celebrating,” Paul concluded.

Following the interview, Paul tweeted out a report noting that the FDA has approved the use of COVID-19 antibody therapy, meaning Monoclonal antibodies can be given to elderly spouses or family members who live with someone who has COVID 19.

Hooray for REAL Science!

Paul also reacted to being censored by YouTube after an interview he did with Newsmax on the lack of efficacy of cloth face masks was removed purely because it contradicts what the government says about masks.

Senator Introduces Legislation To Mandate Voter ID For States That Mandate Vaccine Passports

Bill will “shine a light on those who hypocritically oppose voter ID laws but support vaccine passports.”

Published

After New York City announced that it will mandate vaccine passports for entry to events and even restaurants and gyms, a Republican Senator has introduced a bill that would make it mandatory for any state using a vaccine pass system to also use a voter ID system.

The government mandated vaccine pass, which is being called the “Key to NYC Pass,” will become effective later this month and will also apply to employees of businesses using it.

The New York Post reports that the scheme “marks a significant escalation of the city’s efforts to curb the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant, and will launch in mid-August and enforcement will begin in September following a public service announcement campaign, administration officials said.”

The report notes that there will not be an option to produce a negative test, and just as in San Francisco’s bars, the unvaccinated will be forced to eat and drink outdoors only.

Mayor Bill de Blasio proclaimed last week “We’ve got to shake people at this point and say, ‘Come on now.’ We tried voluntary. We could not have been more kind and compassionate. Free testing, everywhere you turn, incentives, friendly, warm embrace. The voluntary phase is over. It’s time for mandates, because it’s the only way to protect our people.”

New York is now officially a two tier city.

Curiously though, anyone can still vote there without showing ID, a double standard exposed by Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-North Dakota, who has introduced a bill to mandate voter ID.

“If states that take federal money for elections feel the need to make residents verify a piece of information as private as their vaccination status just to return to normalcy, then they should have no problem requiring people to prove they are who they say they are when they go to vote,” Cramer said in a statement.

Cramer added that the measure “would ensure that those states are consistent in their identification requirements and shine a light on those who hypocritically oppose voter ID laws but support vaccine passports.”

When asked about the vaccine passport mandate in New York, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki expressed support, dismissing Peter Doocy’s point that many Americans are waiting for the FDA to fully approve vaccines or simply do not want the vaccine for religious or medical reasons.

Psaki also avoided answering a question from a Daily Caller reporter who noted that communities of color have lower vaccination rates than white New Yorkers, and therefore the same ‘it’s discriminatory’ argument Democrats have applied against the introduction of voter ID applies to the vaccine pass system.

Others pointed out the double standard:

Australian Health Official Tells Grandparents: “Don’t Go Anywhere Near Your Grandkids”

‘Zero COVID’ insanity continues.

Published

on

Video Screenshot

Queensland’s top health official has warned grandparents “don’t go anywhere near your grandkids” as Australia continues to struggle with its highly controversial ‘zero COVID’ policy which has necessitated endless lockdowns.

Chief Health Officer (CHO) Jeannette Young made the statement after the delta variant spread to four schools in the Australian state.

“If you’re a grandparent of one of these kids, one of these households, and you haven’t been vaccinated, please don’t go anywhere near your grandkids,” Young told reporters.

Unlike other countries, Australia’s implementation of the vaccine rollout has been slow, with less than 15 per cent of the population fully vaccinated.

Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles also reminded residents under home quarantine that they couldn’t leave their abode unless “in an emergency or to get a test.”

Young’s rhetoric resembles that of Dr. Kerry Chant, the chief health officer of New South Wales, who went so far as to tell Australians that they shouldn’t “engage in conversation with each other,” even if they’re wearing masks, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID.

As we have previously highlighted, Australia has imposed one of the most draconian lockdowns in the developed world in response to just a relative handful of cases compared to infection rates in other major countries.

In an attempt to deter protests against the brutal lockdown, Australia has deployed the military onto the streets of Sydney while people who merely post anti-lockdown information online could face fines of up to $11,000 dollars under a new law.

Australian MP Frank Pangallo also recently asserted that unvaccinated people “will need to be controlled and restricted” by authorities.

By pursuing a virtually impossible ‘zero COVID’ policy instead of living with the virus and going for herd immunity, authorities have ensured that Australians could remain under some form of lockdown for years to come.
