“I’m not upset that you lied to me. I am upset that from now on I can’t believe you.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Some may recall back in the early days of the Covid-19 Pandemic that there was much speculation as to the origins of this virus. At first we were told it came from a “wet market” in Wuhan, China, possibly from meat contaminated with diseases from bats, known to be reservoir hosts of SARS-related coronaviruses. Some scientists discounted that theory as such viruses seldom jump the species hurdle from animal to human, while others noted that SARS did so in 2003, also originating in China.
Much speculation as to what was true or not followed, which was understandable since nothing definitive at that time was known. What was not understandable was why then did the CDC, the WHO and the NIH proceed with not only making the “wet market” theory the official account, but labeling all other explanations “misinformation”, and even worse, censoring those with alternative accounts. It became such a censorious campaign as to cause the dismissal of many doctors and scientists who did not subscribe to the official narrative.
What was even more troubling were the accounts in the Washington Post, The Intercept, and other news articles about the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is part of the National Institute of Health (NIH), funding gain-of-function (GOF) research through the US based nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance for the Wuhan Institute of Virology and its laboratory. This would be a direct violation of the 2014 Congressional ban on such research that makes such viruses more transmittable to humans. Dr. Anthony Fauci was the director of NIAID at that time who claimed that “…it has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Despite the NIH’s refusal to release requested documents regarding such funding, Empower Oversight Whistleblowers & Research, a well-known and respected public advocacy group, sued under the FOIA in order to obtain them. They were reviewed by various scientists and journalists, such as Richard Ebright, Board of Governors Professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University, Newsweek and The Washington Post. Ebright concluded that “The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement in Wuhan are untruthful.”
The conclusion was that unequivocally NIH grants were used to fund controversial GOF research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, contrary to Dr. Fauci’s denials; such accounts were published by both Newsweek and The Washington Post. Subsequently, under direct questioning by Senator Rand Paul at a Senate Health Committee hearing on 07/20/21, Fauci became enraged when Paul suggested he lied to Congress about the NIH funding GOF research, testily denying any such involvement.
So compelling are the facts supported by documentation that now the US Department of Energy says that Covid-19 most likely originated from an unintentional laboratory leak in China, according to a “classified document”. Following that announcement, the Director of the FBI, Christopher A. Wray yesterday said Covid-19 “most likely” originated from a “lab incident” in Wuhan, China. Despite all the documentation, facts and findings, even from their own agencies, the Biden administration inexplicably continues to insist there remains no “consensus” about whether Covid-19 leaked from a Chinese lab.
In light of the draconian and clearly unconstitutional measures the administration inflicted on Americans with lockdowns, mandates, and the censorious campaigns about so-called “misinformation”, wherein if you questioned the actions of the government, you were labelled an “extremist”, but apparently if you lied as Fauci did, you are anointed as an “expert”, this administration can’t be trusted to tell the truth as it seems to operate on Adolf Hitler’s theory that “If you tell a big enough lie, and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
Further, we now learn that despite the claims from the two main pharmaceutical regimes, i.e. Pfizer and Moderna, claiming respectively in early 2020 that the efficacy of their vaccines were 95% and 90% respectively, neither one has proven to exceed even 35%, and further they now state that their vaccines are not effective against transmission. Recall that in promoting and in some cases mandating vaccines, the administration extended these two medical behemoths immunity from liability regarding any negative effects from their vaccines; how fortunate for these corporations given the growing incidence of cardiac adverse events such as myocarditis or pericarditis. The whole basis of the tyrannical medical passport system was built on a lie as we now have a frank admission from Pfizer and Moderna that their product was never tested on its ability to reduce transmission.
I do believe that the truth will out, but the issue now is what Americas make of this tragic chapter in our history where the government actually connived to not only deceive us, but to destroy the means by which we could know the truth. These lies represent egregious acts of what can only be considered intentional frauds and cover-ups by both the corporate and government actors involved. We must not forget or forgive those responsible because if we do, then what will come to pass is, as George Orwell spoke of in 1984, that “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.”
