- Charles Rixey, a COVID-19 analyst, combed through 100,000 pages of FOIA documents and reviewed more than 1,000 research articles, forming a conclusion over six months of investigation that “one of the worst developments of the pandemic is the evaporation of public trust in scientists”
- This erosion of trust came at the hands of “America’s doctor,” Fauci, who sprung to action at the start of the pandemic — not to protect the public, as his duty required, but to protect himself
- One of the major pieces of propaganda is “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” a paper published in March 2020 that became the preeminent “proof” that SARS-CoV-2 had a natural origin and couldn’t possibly have come from a lab; its authors originally stated the virus appeared to be engineered
- Rixey reveals that Fauci and colleagues issued a mandate to control the COVID-19 origin narrative February 3, 2020, and scientists got the signal that pursuing the lab-origin theory would result in “career death”
By now, many have heard that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) — an arm of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — has funded controversial gain-of-function (GOF) research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIAID director, told a House Appropriations subcommittee that $600,000 was given to the nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance, which funneled the money to WIV over a five-year period for the purpose of studying bat coronaviruses and whether they could be transmitted to humans.1
Fauci has denied funding GOF research, even though evidence shows he did fund it,2 but it goes much deeper than this. Now that it’s been proven beyond a reasonable doubt that SARS-CoV-2 is laboratory derived — the likely result of GOF research — we must look back on Fauci’s early pandemic response under a different lens.
