COVID Deception

Remember when Sen. Rand Paul accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of funding China’s Wuhan virus lab?

Fauci replied, “Sen. Paul, you do not know what you’re talking about.”

The media loved it. Vanity Fair smirked, “Fauci Once Again Forced to Basically Call Rand Paul a Sniveling Moron.”

But now the magazine has changed its tune, admitting, “In Major Shift, NIH Admits Funding Risky Virus Research in Wuhan … Paul might have been onto something.”

Then what about question two: Did COVID-19 occur because of a leak from that lab?

When Paul confronted Fauci, saying, “The evidence is pointing that it came from the lab!” Fauci replied, “I totally resent the lie that you are now propagating.”

Was Paul lying? What’s the truth?

The media told us COVID came from an animal, possibly a bat.

But in my new video, Paul points out there were “reports of 80,000 animals being tested. No animals with it.”

Now he’s released a book, “Deception: The Great Covid Cover-Up,” that charges Fauci and others with funding dangerous research and then covering it up.

“Three people in the Wuhan lab got sick with a virus of unknown origin in November of 2019,” says Paul. The Wuhan lab is 1,000 kilometers away from where bats live.

Today the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Energy and others agree with Paul. They believe COVID most likely came from a lab.

I ask Paul, “COVID came from evil Chinese scientists, in a lab, funded by America?”

“America funded it,” he replies, “maybe not done with evil intentions. It was done with the misguided notion that ‘gain of function’ research was safe.”

Gain of function research includes making viruses stronger.

The purpose is to anticipate what might happen in nature and come up with vaccines in advance. So I push back at Paul, “They’re trying to find ways to stop diseases!”

He replies, “Many scientists have now looked at this and said, ‘We’ve been doing this gain of function research for quite a while.’ The likelihood that you create something that creates a vaccine that’s going to help anybody is pretty slim to none.”

Paul points out that Fauci supported “gain of function” research.

“He said in 2012, even if a pandemic occurs … the knowledge is worth it.” Fauci did write: “The benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.”

Paul answers: “Well, that’s a judgment call. There’s probably 16 million families around the world who might disagree with that.”

Fauci and the National Institutes of Health didn’t give money directly to the Chinese lab. They gave it to a nonprofit, EcoHealth Alliance. The group works to protect people from infectious diseases.

“They were able to accumulate maybe over $100 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars, and a lot of it was funneled to Wuhan,” says Paul.

EcoHealth Alliance is run by zoologist Peter Daszak. Before the pandemic, Daszak bragged about combining coronaviruses in Wuhan.

Once COVID broke out, Daszak became less eager to talk about these experiments. He won’t talk to me.

“Peter Daszak has refused to reveal his communications with the Wuhan lab,” complains Paul. “I do think that ultimately there is a great deal of culpability on his part … They squelched all dissent and said, ‘You’re a conspiracy theorist if you’re saying this (came from a lab),’ but they didn’t reveal that they had a monetary self-incentive to cover this up,” says Paul.

“The media is weirdly un-curious about this,” I say to Paul.

“We have a disease that killed maybe 16 million people,” Paul responds. “And they’re not curious as to how we got it?”

Also, Our NIH still funds gain of function research, Paul says.

“This is a risk to civilization. We could wind up with a virus … that leaks out of a lab and kills half of the planet,” Paul warns.

Paul’s book reveals much more about Fauci and EcoHealth Alliance. I will cover more of that in this column in a few weeks.

  1. “The likelihood that you create something that creates a vaccine that’s going to help anybody is pretty slim to none.” In other words, a funding scam to support scientists with no intention of curing anything or helping anyone.

  2. I’m thankful that we have watchdogs such as Rand Paul and I’m also thankful that Mr Stossel provides people like Paul with a podium.
    There is so much deceit throughout our government as well as with agencies and people who as supposed to protect us.
    Keep up the good work gentlemen.

  3. Let’s look at, let’s say, SNAP/food stamps. On principle, we should eliminate the welfare program, but America is not yet ready. We need to solve other problems first. We don’t, however, need to solve other problems before eliminating funds for gain of function research. We need to PRIORITIZE which government spending to eliminate.

  4. The worst part of all this is the media is so politicized and eager to shore up flagging ratings that there is far too little honest journalism being done. The role of the media should be to vet the government and businesses and inform the public so we can make an informed decision.

  5. “16 million dead from covid. That’s worse than a nuclear bomb. We need to prevent this from happening again.”
    –Rand Paul

    Hmm. If only we had things like masks and vaccines to reduce transmission and death. But Rand Paul and his MAGA cult aren’t really pro life.

  6. They have proven masks and social distancing do not work. We were only supposed to stay in place for 2 weeks. Mask up and distance 6 feet when we had to go out into the world for necessities. It lasted 3 years. How was masking effective? How did vaccines work? I’m not an anti vaxer. The polo vax was rushed and they got it wrong. Why would anyone in their right mind rush to get an untested vaccine? Many who did regretted it. And many who did had to get it 3, 4 and 5 times. That’s not a vaccine like the MMR. Even a tetanus shot lasts 10 years. We were lied to.

  7. This is plain and simple evil. I am not a medical doctor or medical researcher. Why would man want to modify or create something that is way more dangerous than anything found in nature? We all know accidents happen and that could innocently or intentionally become biological warfare. It is pretty frightening. I am thankful for folks like Senator Rand Paul and others that just ask questions. When those questions are brushed aside as irrelevant or conspiracy theories, then that is a bad sign. The old adage of follow the money, fits again. This is just another case of government fraud and waste of taxpayers money. Why would be partner with Communist China over anything? Common sense, people. Keep asking questions and pray that this all will be shut down.
