Fauci Now Claims To Have 'Open Mind' About COVID Lab-Leak Theory

"In January, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request revealed that Dr. Anthony Fauci not only initiated efforts to cover up evidence pointing to a Chinese lab as the origin of COVID-19, but that he actively shaped a highly influential academic paper that excluded the possibility of a lab leak.

Fauci’s involvement with the paper wasn’t acknowledged by the authors, as it should have been under prevailing academic standards. Neither was it acknowledged by Fauci himself, who denied having communicated with the authors when asked directly while testifying before Congress - which we now know is a bald-faced lie.

The article, Proximal Origin, was co-authored by five virologists, four of whom participated in a Feb. 1, 2020, teleconference that was hastily convened by Fauci, who serves as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and Jeremy Farrar, who heads the UK-based Wellcome Trust, after public reporting of a potential link between the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China and the COVID-19 outbreak, according to the Epoch Times.

The initial draft of Proximal Origin was completed on the same day the teleconference, which wasn’t made public, took place. Notably, at least three authors of the paper were privately telling Fauci’s teleconference group both during the call and in subsequent emails that they were 60 to 80 percent sure that COVID-19 had come out of a lab.

(Oh, and at least three virologists involved in the drafting of Proximal Origin have seen substantial increases in funding from the agency since the paper was first published)

Fast forward six months, and the World Health Organization (WHO) finally admitted that the lab leak theory - while maintaining that it’s not the most likely scenario - is a possibility that “needs study.”

Now, Fauci is suddenly ‘open minded’ about the theory.

As the Daily Mail reports, Fauci told Fox News’ Bret Baier on Friday: “We have an open mind but it looks very much like this was a natural occurrence, but you keep an open mind.”

Baier grilled Fauci about a claim he made in April 2020, after being sent a link to a report made by Baier himself, that saw Fauci dismiss the lab leak theory as 'a shiny object that will go away.'

The Fox News anchor said: 'When you read the email from Kristian Andersen who says…“one has to look really closely to see some features (potentially) look engineered.”

‘And you say this is a shiny object and it will go away. It does not look like you’re open minded to it.’

Fauci appeared to try to deflect by flattering Baier, saying: 'Bret, I know youre a good person, I know you a long time.

‘If you take a group of emails when people are considering and thinking out loud, and stop there, and don’t look at the weeks of consideration by the same people who wrote the same emails… in published peer review literature, they explain why they thought it was a natural occurrence.’ -Daily Mail


In February 2020, California-based virologist Kristen Anderson (who has since deleted more than 5,000 tweets) speculated that COVID looked to be genetically engineered.

And two months later, emails reveal that then-National Institutes of Health Director Dr Francis Collins emailed Fauci a link to a Fox Report claiming ‘multiple sources’ believed COVID had leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology - writing “Wondering if there is something NIH can do to help put down this very destructive conspiracy, with what seems to be growing momentum.”

Last October, a top NIH official admitted that the US-funded so-called “gain-of-function” research in Wuhan, China - and that the US nonprofit which conducted it, EcoHealth Alliance - led by the controversial Peter Daszak, “failed to report” that they had created a chimeric bat coronavirus which could infect humans.

As we noted last September, proof that the US funded of GoF research was blown wide open thanks to materials (here and here) released through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by The Intercept against the National Institutes of Health, revealing that EcoHealth was paid to make chimeric SARS-based Covid that they confirmed could infect human cells**.**

While evidence of this research has been pointed to in published studies, the FOIA release provides a key piece to the puzzle which sheds new light on what was going on.

This is a roadmap to the high-risk research that could have led to the current pandemic,” said Gary Ruskin, executive director of U.S. Right To Know, a group that has been investigating the origins of Covid-19 (via The Intercept).

We also learned in September that 18 months before the Pandemic, Daszak applied for a grant to release enhanced airborne coronaviruses into the wild in an effort to inoculate them against diseases that could have otherwise jumped to humans, according to The Telegraph, citing leaked grant proposals from 2018.

New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing “novel chimeric spike proteins” of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.

They also planned to create chimeric viruses, genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily, and requested $14million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) to fund the work.

Daszak hoped to use genetic engineering to cobble “human-specific cleavage sites” onto bat Covid ‘which would make it easier for the virus to enter human cells’ - and included plans to commingle high-risk natural coronaviruses strains with more infectious, yet less deadly versions. His ‘bat team’ of researchers included Dr. Shi Zhengli from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, as well as US researchers from the University of North Carolina and the US Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Center.

And now Fauci is ‘open minded’ to the possibility of a lab leak." https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/fauci-now-claims-have-open-mind-covid-lab-leak-theory

There’s still that awkward question though: If it turns out that ‘viruses’ are as delusional as phlogiston and the Ptolemaic solar system, what is it that the mengele-labs are actually tampering with? Anything real, or all illusory? Have they really been trying to extract sunbeams from cucumbers all this time…? :smile:

And if - despite their convinced certainties - they’re not actually manipulating anything really real, that can be weaponised, did anything at all come out of (filthy, hyper-polluted) Wuhan? Was it all just a spontaneous flu - caused by whatever it is that really causes flills, such as the filthiness of Wuhan - which the main-chancer gics then inflated through their captive organisations like the WHO, etc. into a pseudopandemic, using only their familiar tools of the bought-crooks like consigliere Fauci, plus the PBB of the mediawhores and the pocket-politicians?

Was there, in fact, any global excess death toll at all, caused by a flill coming from whichever possibly spontaneous, natural process that it came from?

I doubt both things actually: both the allegedly manufactured pathogen, because you can’t manipulate something - a virus - that doesn’t exist to begin with; and the alleged worldwide excess death toll. Though that’s not to say that I don’t believe some people have been suffering, and actually dying in some cases, from a nasty flu-like ill: a flill. Clearly that has been happening. Just not to real pandemic status.

I still look forward to having to give a red-faced admission of being totally wrong, when some outfit somewhere, anywhere in the world, can actually supply a bona-fide PHYSICAL, fully purified specimen of a covid virus; or indeed any virus at all (not just a computer-wraith).

No-one seems able to do it - not authentically - for covid, despite all the specious claims. And apparently not for any virus at all, that can actually overcome the awkward facts put forward by the Lanka/Cowan/Kaufman/Bailey questioners.

Despite the obdurate virus bandwaggon that keeps on rolling forward on its big-money/career-prestige momentum, the whole issue of the germs-versus-terrain controversy rumbles on, handily brought back into prominence as one of the droll unforeseen consequences of the scamdemic.

"BEIJING, July 25 (Reuters) - China on Monday gave conditional approval to domestic firm Genuine Biotech’s Azvudine pill to treat certain adult patients with COVID-19, adding another oral treatment option against the coronavirus.

The availability of effective COVID vaccines and treatments is crucial in laying the groundwork for China’s potential pivoting from its “dynamic COVID zero” policy, which aims to eliminate every outbreak - however small - and relies on mass testing and strict quarantining.

The Azvudine tablet, which China approved in July last year to treat certain HIV-1 virus infections, has been given a conditional green light to treat adult patients with “normal type” COVID, the National Medical Products Administration said in a statement.

“Normal type” COVID is a term China uses to refer to coronavirus infections where there are signs of pneumonia, but the patients haven’t reached a severe stage.

China in February allowed the use of Pfizer’s oral treatment Paxlovid in adults with mild-to-moderate COVID and high risk of progressing to a severe condition. In 2020, it approved the use of Lianhuaqingwen capsules, a traditional Chinese medicine-style formula, to alleviate symptoms of COVID such as fever and cough.

In a late-stage clinical trial, 40.4% of patients taking Azvudine showed improvement in symptoms seven days after first taking the drug, compared with 10.9% in the control group, Henan province-based Genuine Biotech said in a statement earlier this month, without providing detailed readings.

Other Chinese companies developing potential oral COVID treatments include Shanghai Junshi Biosciences (688180.SS) and Kintor Pharmaceutical (9939.HK)." https://www.reuters.com/world/china/china-allow-use-genuine-biotechs-hiv-drug-covid-patients-2022-07-25/

Advocates say Canada should commit $1.2 billion to fight against AIDS, TB and malaria


"MONTREAL — Advocacy groups working to end extreme poverty say they hope Canada will use an upcoming international AIDS conference in Montreal to commit new funding for a global organization that fights AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

But the groups say they’re worried Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s commitment to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria will fall short.

Elise Legault, Canada director at the ONE Campaign, an international non-governmental organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, said her group is calling for Trudeau to commit $1.2 billion to the fund during the AIDS 2022 conference, which begins July 29.

“With this investment, Canada would, alongside lots of other countries, help save another 20 million lives over the next few years, but we’re concerned that the prime minister might not be taking this opportunity,” she said in a recent interview.

Legault said the Global Fund, which provides financing to health departments and NGOs fighting the three diseases, has helped save an estimated 44 million lives over the past 20 years.

Canada is one of the fund’s largest supporters and has pledged more than $4 billion since 2002.

Chris Dendys, executive director of Results Canada, an Ottawa-based advocacy organization that works to end extreme poverty, said her group is also “pushing for this $1.2-billion contribution, which is what the Global Fund says is needed — the bare minimum needed.”" MSN
