Virus Origin Task Force Leader Thanked Fauci For Dismissing Leak Theory: Uh-Oh!

Ever since it became acceptable to suggest the coronavirus may have leaked from the Wuhan lab conducting research on bat virus strains, one name, in particular, has kept popping up.

That would be Peter Daszak.

Daszak is the president of EcoHealth Alliance, which describes itself as “a global environmental health nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting wildlife and public health from the emergence of disease.”

EcoHealth received a $3.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health in 2014: that’s Dr. Anthony Fauci. The organization was involved with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and it is believed that Daszak passed on some portion of the grant to subsidize gain-of-function research there.

Following the recent release of over 3,200 pages of Anthony Fauci’s emails from the first six months of the pandemic, we learned that Daszak emailed Fauci on April 18, 2020, to thank him for dismissing the theory that the coronavirus may have escaped from a lab.

Daszak wrote: “I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Daszak was also the writer and organizer of a statement signed by 27 public health scientists published in the elite medical journal The Lancet on Feb. 19, 2020. The letter effectively shut down debate over the origins of the pandemic.

It read in part: “The rapid, open, and transparent sharing of data on this outbreak is now being threatened by rumors and misinformation around its origins. We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.”

This letter did more than anything else to turn the tide away from the lab leak theory. After all, that many medical “experts” who scream of “rumors and misinformation” being so bold as to write a letter debunking all of the “not-so-experts” who can add two-plus-two and come up with 4 every time but are NOT their equals is pretty much standard operating procedure these days. And then there’s Fauci strutting in the wings of the stage of “COVID-19.” All they did was confirm the insanity HE has shared with us all for about 18 months now.

Now we’re learning that The Lancet has set up a task force to investigate the pandemic’s origins. Gee, that’s a novel idea! Why not just go ahead and listen to the REAL experts who told us of the Wuhan laboratory origin of COVID-19 more than a year ago? But, I forgot: NO ONE has the knowledge and expertise in these matters, as does Dr. Fauci.

In addition to “analyzing data on all of the theories put forward on the origins of COVID,” the task force, we are told, will “review thoroughly and objectively all publicly available evidence, particularly the peer-reviewed literature, and conduct interviews with key leaders in science, medicine, policy, and civil society.”

Here’s the catch: Daszak has been selected to lead the effort.

Are they kidding us? That REALLY makes sense! Why not just go ahead and send the fox in to find out who’s been killing the chickens in the henhouse?

Steve Watson at Summit News wrote, “ANYBODY but this guy would be more suitable. Dr. Peter Daszak, who is heading up this task force, is perhaps the least suitable scientist on the planet to objectively analyze the data, given his track record.”

Daszak was also the lead investigator on the World Health Organization team that traveled to Wuhan in February. Predictably, the team called the lab leak theory “extremely unlikely.” Watson wrote that Daszak reached this conclusion within three hours.

Daszak admitted in March that he personally vouched for the WIV, leading investigators not to request access to data deleted by the lab in September 2019.

In a video recorded in December 2019, shortly before the coronavirus spread throughout the world, Daszak is interviewed by virologist Vincent Racaniello. Daszak tells Racaniello:

“You can manipulate [coronaviruses] in the lab pretty easily. The spiked protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus. You can get the sequence, you can build the protein, insert into [the] backbone of another virus and do some work in a lab.”

Watson reported that “Daszak was later employed as an ‘expert fact checker’ by Facebook when it was monitoring and removing ‘misinformation’ about the origins of COVID on its platform, much of which was credible scientific research.”

Facebook has since reversed its policy of removing any posts suggesting the coronavirus was manufactured.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham and Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a physician himself, recently discussed attempts by members of the international medical community to steer the public away from the lab leak theory.

Asked about Daszak, Paul said, “Peter Daszak is not a disinterested party. He’s not just looking for the truth. He was the funder of the research in Wuhan. So he has a self-interest in not revealing this because it turns out the lab — the virus came from the lab.”

“This is a big deal,” Paul added. “So any investigation going forward, it can’t include Tony Fauci, can’t include Peter Daszak, because they were the ones who funded the lab. They have a conflict of interest with coming to the truth.”


Will this COVID-19 insanity ever stop? Will someone — ANYONE — ever hold Dr. Anthony Fauci accountable for even one of his plethora of misrepresentations, flip-flops, and outright lies to the American people for all-things COVID-19? After all, 600,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 complications!

Forget about President Biden doing so. After all, the Democrat Party leaders in Congress are the ones who anointed Fauci “COVID Czar” and forced him on Donald Trump. They wanted Fauci in the White House daily “informing” Americans while trying to make Trump look like a clown. A clown was certainly revealed during all this, but it wasn’t President Trump. It was Fauci. And if his faux leadership was so fatal, this entire debacle would be laughable.

And the raucous humor continues! “Well, there may be something to that Wuhan lab origin of COVID-19.” Duh! I don’t know about you, but we “floated” that idea as a “probability” over a year ago. Facebook blocked it as did YouTube, Google, Instagram, and even some “real” news sites. If you didn’t toe the company line, you were toast.

And now those sycophants in the media and the large group of medical hacks have mud on their faces. But even with that happening and looking daily more likely than Fauci’s ideas, the Left STILL stoke the fires of Fauci’s credibility day after day after day.

When a liar is caught lying continually, how do you know which thing the liar says is OK to believe?

Answer: you don’t know! Why? Because most of what the liar says is probably untruthful.

Common sense dictates the summary dismissal of EVERYTHING the liar says. After all, listening and believing the wrong one is likely to kill you. Just ask any one of those 600,000 Americans who did just that.

Fauci is complicit in all this. And Fauci needs to go!
