1) New NIH Documents Appear To Contradict Fauci
The Topline: Newly-released documents call into question earlier federal messaging regarding the U.S. funding of potentially dangerous research at the Wuhan Lab of Virology.
Last week, documents released by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) appeared to contradict previous claims by the EcoHealth Alliance on the subject of controversial experiments on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan, China.
EcoHealth Alliance is the global non-profit focusing on pandemic-related research at the center of the “gain-of-function” allegations, having received a grant from the NIH.
The NIH are now claiming they weren’t aware of the problematic and potentially dangerous research being carried out at the Wuhan Institute of Virology with funding from the United States through EcoHealth.
According to the letter, scientists took a known bat coronavirus and spliced the spike proteins from other recently discovered bat coronaviruses, testing it on mice genetically engineered to have human-type cell receptors.
They found the mice got much sicker than they’d normally get when exposed to the known bat coronavirus, calling their findings an “unexpected result.”
Remember: They had previously claimed they had reviewed the research and found it had not violated gain-of-function regulations enforced at the time.
Evidence seems to imply that either the NIH was misled regarding the type of research happening or Dr. Anthony Fauci was not honest about U.S. involvement in terms of funding earlier this year.
In a letter, Representative Nancy Mace (R-SC) and 23 colleagues shared “grave concerns about reports of costly, cruel, and unnecessary taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs.”
According to the White Coat Waste Project, a taxpayer watchdog group, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) spent $1.68 million in taxpayer funds on drug tests involving 44 beagle puppies.
Researchers allegedly locked the drugged dogs in cages, either to be eaten alive by sandflies or injected with various parasites, in order to study the results.
2) School Boards Apologize For Controversial Letter
The Topline: The National School Boards Association is now apologizing for a letter they sent to President Biden in which they compared parents who protested against certain left-wing polices in school to “domestic terrorism.” The
