What Did Fauci Know And When?

 From Jim Jordan at The Federalist:

First, Dr. Fauci knew that American taxpayers had helped to fund dangerous gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

Second, Dr. Fauci knew this research funding did not go through the government’s required safety review process — a process known as the P3 framework.

Third, Dr. Fauci knew that the virus “looked…engineered” and seemed to be “inconsistent with evolutionary theory.”

What did he do next?

He organized a conference call for the evening of February 1, 2020. On the call were 11 virologists from around the world, including Dr. Andersen who sent Dr. Fauci the email less than 24 hours earlier. Almost all the participants on the call had previously been awarded American taxpayer-funded grants by Dr. Fauci.

Who was not on the call?

Dr. Kadlec, Dr. Fauci’s superior at HHS.

Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Dr. Brett Giroir, Assistant Secretary for Health.

Or Dr. Birx, the soon-to-be COVID-19 Response Coordinator.

In fact, there was not a single U.S. government official on the call, except for Dr. Fauci.

What happened on the call? We don’t know. All of the emails discussing the call are redacted.

However, we do know what happened four days later. Dr. Andersen, the virologist who sent the original 10:32 p.m. email on January 31, went public with this statement:

“The main crackpot theories going around at the moment relate to this virus being somehow engineered . . . and that is demonstrably false.

In four days, Dr. Andersen flipped 180 degrees! The only intervening event appears to be the conference call with Dr. Fauci.

In addition, over the next few weeks, Dr. Andersen and three others on the conference call penned an article in Nature Medicine. The article included the definitive statement, that “Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct . . . “

In just three weeks, Dr. Andersen went from COVID-19 “looks…engineered” to “[it] is not a laboratory construct.”

Other emails also show that before this article was published, Dr. Andersen wrote to Dr. Fauci and offered to let him edit the article.

Finally, and maybe most importantly, after the article was published, Dr. Fauci cited it in a White House press briefing as an authoritative source when asked about the virus’ origins. Dr. Fauci cited the very article he put in motion on the conference call, and he was allowed to edit.

Dr. Fauci knew COVID-19 likely came from the WIV. He knew American taxpayers funded gain of function research on coronaviruses at the WIV. He knew this funding bypassed required oversight. And he knew the virus “looked…engineered” and was “inconsistent with evolutionary theory.” And he knew all this on February 1, 2020.

Information of this magnitude should have been taken directly to the President of the United States. Instead, Dr. Fauci organized a conference call with 11 non-governmental virologists to cover his tracks.

I believe it was on this call, they decided to manufacture the article in an attempt to conceal their involvement in gain of function research at the WIV. These 11 unelected scientists decided to hide the truth from the American people for more than a year. (Read more.)

From Zero Hedge:

According to Israel National News, more than 7.7K new cases of the virus have been detected during the most recent wave (beginning back in May). However, just 72 of the confirmed cases were reported in people who were known to have been previously infected - that is, less than 1% of the new cases.

Roughly 40% of new cases – involving more than 3K patients – were infected despite being fully vaccinated.

By this count, Israelis who had been vaccinated were 6.72x more likely to get infected after the shot than after natural infection, with more than 3K of the 5,193,499, or 0.0578%, of Israelis who were vaccinated getting infected in the latest wave. The disparity has confounded Health Ministry experts, with some saying the data proves the higher level of immunity provided by natural infection versus vaccination. However, others remain unconvinced.

Israel's Health Ministry previously estimated that the efficacy of Pfizer's COVID jab was only 64% against the Delta variant, which helped prompt Pfizer and its partner BioNTech to develop a new jab designed to protect against variants including Delta and Beta (the variant first discovered in South Africa).
