As many of you know, I was the first reporter who asked President Trump about Dr. Fauci and the NIH funding the Wuhan Lab of Virology in China at a White House press briefing. My question is widely credited with ending US taxpayer funding to the Wuhan Lab (at least temporarily). It was April 17, 2020. I had asked President Trump the following question:
“The NIH under the Obama administration in 2015 gave that lab [the Wuhan Institute of Virology] $3.7 million in a grant. Why would the U.S. give a grant like that to China?”
“We will end that grant very quickly,” President Trump replied. “It was granted quite awhile ago,” he added. “Who was president then, I wonder?” The grant funding was canceled almost overnight.
My question set off a firestorm in the media. I was denounced as a conspiracy theorist by several corporate media outlets. Vanity Fair ran crappy articles about it. I was the subject of lame fact-checks by bogus organizations. The antiquated TV news show 60 Minutes even had their correspondent Scott Pelley attempt to discredit my question in a segment that painted the nefarious “gain of function” researcher Peter Daszak as a hero.
It turned out that I was right and all those media outlets were wrong. It’s always been perfectly obvious that COVID-19 came from the Wuhan lab in China but America’s national security state didn’t want you to know your tax dollars were funding bioweapons research conducted by the Chinese Communist Party.
It’s also been obvious that Dr. Fauci was lying to the American public about absolutely everything. (Dr. Fauci has funded grafting the scalps of aborted babies onto the backs of lab rats — in case you’re wondering about his ethics.) His previous statements of support for “gain of function” research were all over the Internet hiding in plain sight. The fear of Fauci’s experiments was bipartisan too. The research that Fauci funded on weaponizing the bat coronavirus was so dangerous that even liberals disliked it. A broad spectrum of concerned scientists had convinced the Obama Administration to stop it in 2014.
