Good News: NIH Didn’t Adequately Track Funding To Wuhan

Well, gee wiz, didn’t government officials, like Anthony Fauci, claim that there was nothing bad going on with the NIH funding China on research, that there was no gain of research happening?

‘Extremely disconcerting’: NIH didn’t track U.S. funds going to Chinese virus research, watchdog finds

Republicans PounceThe National Institutes of Health failed to provide adequate oversight of an American organization that funded controversial research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, according to a new government report that is sure to raise new questions about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report is evidence of “major failures in past NIH oversight of high-risk research on enhanced potential pandemic pathogens,” Rutgers molecular biologist Richard Ebright told Yahoo News in an email.

Issued by the inspector general of the federal Department of Health and Human Services, the new report says nothing about the origins of the coronavirus. For the most part, it concerns research that took place well before the first cases of what came to be known as SARS-CoV-2 were discovered in China in late 2019.

But it does note that the American organization in question, the EcoHealth Alliance, should have been more rigorously scrutinized by federal officials regarding assurances that its partner lab in Wuhan was not using U.S. funds to conduct gain-of-function research, which boosts viruses to study how they might evolve in nature.

“The entire picture starts to look extremely disconcerting,” mathematical biologist Alex Washburne told Yahoo News. He said that a project on coronaviruses originating in bats, for which the EcoHealth Alliance had given a grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, “was clearly gain-of-function research.”

Good job, NIH, good job! Giving lots of U.S. taxpayer to a foreign entity in a country that is an adversary, one with a poor record on containing leaks of diseases, and failing to monitor it properly. Then lying about it to the American people. But, of course

Republicans seized on the findings, with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky — a skeptic of virtually every aspect of the official coronavirus narrative — charging that the NIH “failed to conduct adequate oversight.”

China hawks will also be emboldened, accusing President Biden of not being forceful enough with the East Asian superpower.

Seizing! Anyhow, it’s fun how we are allowed to talk about this now, at the tail end of Wuhan flu, 3 years later. How the news is now saying things, questioning things, things that people were being shut down over back in 2020, 2021, being called nuts and conspiracy theorists, eh?


California law aiming to curb COVID misinformation blocked by judge

A U.S. judge has blocked a California law that sought to penalize doctors who spread “misinformation or disinformation” about COVID-19 while he considers a pair lawsuits challenging it on free speech grounds.

Senior U.S. District Judge William Shubb in Sacramento ruled on Wednesday that Assembly Bill 2098, which was signed last October by California Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, was too vague for doctors to know what kind of statements might put them at risk of being penalized.”COVID-19 is a quickly evolving area of science that in many aspects eludes consensus,” he wrote.

Too bad he didn’t block it due to being a massive infringement on Free Speech, both in the U.S. Constitution and the California Constitution. But, I guess he’s trying to play it safe while waiting for the lawsuits to happen

The preliminary order means that the law cannot be enforced while Shubb hears two lawsuits brought against the law shortly after its passage last year – one by a group of five doctors, and another by a doctor and two advocacy groups including Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s Children’s Health Defense, which has long promoted false information about standard childhood vaccines.

“This Act is a blatant attempt to silence doctors whose views, though based on thorough scientific research, deviate from the government-approved ‘party line,'” said Greg Dolin of the New Civil Liberties Alliance, a lawyer for the doctors, in a statement. “At no point has the State of California been able to articulate the line between permissible and impermissible speech.”

This is what Gavin Newsom calls freedom, the government censoring people for Wrongthink.

    The buck stops with Fauci, not Trump
    Fauci ess Trump’s man. If you think Fauci did a shitty job, blame Trump for keeping him.

      You’re saying that Fauci the killer MD who has been with NIH since 1968 is not responsible for his own medical decisions but Trump, a president is??? So all the false info gave a layman like Trump is okay with you?

      Leftists think only in a political circle celebrating and at the same time exonerating themselves, their decisions and the outcome of those decisions.

      Is there no person of moral responsibility left in the former democrat party?

    “Adequately tracking” your money laundering would pretty much defeat the purpose.
