Vanity Fair: Government Bureaucrats Warned Other Bureaucrats to Not Look Into Covid's Origins, as It Would "Open a Can of Worms;"
Scientists Issued Death Threats to Other Scientists

Do read this narrative-defying expose from Vanity Fair exposing the coordinated efforts of bureaucrats, politicians, and the media to threaten anyone pursuing the lab leak theory.

Let's just start calling it the "Lab Leak Fact."

Now yes, at every turn, they cover for their government pals and Democrat politicians and fellow media propagandists, sayin it's so very understandable that we all collectively acted to censor people and shut down scientific investigation because the Bad Orange Man said something only a fool would dismiss as false, but which could help he get reelected.

So of course we all banded together to suppress science to get Biden elected.

I mean, of course: "elected."

But dismiss that spin and just focus on the facts, which are damning for, yes, the government bureaucrats, the Democrat politicians, and the media -- including our Information Censoring Tech Overlords, social media monopolies.


The Lancet statement organized by Peter Daszak -- through whom Fauci funneled money to the Wuhan lab for gain-of-function research on bat viruses -- effectively shut down all discussion of the Lab Leak Fact by branding anyone who mentioned it a racist who wanted to harass Chinese scientists and Chinese people generally.

... On February 19, 2020, The Lancet, among the most respected and influential medical journals in the world, published a statement that roundly rejected the lab-leak hypothesis, effectively casting it as a xenophobic cousin to climate change denialism and anti-vaxxism. Signed by 27 scientists, the statement expressed "solidarity with all scientists and health professionals in China" and asserted: "We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin."

The Lancet statement effectively ended the debate over COVID-19's origins before it began. To Gilles Demaneuf, following along from the sidelines, it was as if it had been "nailed to the church doors," establishing the natural origin theory as orthodoxy. "Everyone had to follow it. Everyone was intimidated. That set the tone."

That is Peter Daszak, as I've said before, organizing his own cover-up in the open and in real time.

Also note that Peter Daszak was aided in his intimidation of other scientists by his good pal and funder Anthony Fauci, who denounced the lab leak theory publicly.

Also note that Peter Daszak was, incredibly, assigned to officially "investigate" the very crime he was so zealously covering up!

The statement struck Demaneuf as "totally nonscientific." To him, it seemed to contain no evidence or information. And so he decided to begin his own inquiry in a "proper" way, with no idea of what he would find.

Of course it wasn't a scientific statement -- it was a purely political, defensive tribal statement.

A months long Vanity Fair investigation, interviews with more than 40 people, and a review of hundreds of pages of U.S. government documents, including internal memos, meeting minutes, and email correspondence, found that conflicts of interest, stemming in part from large government grants supporting controversial virology research, hampered the U.S. investigation into COVID-19's origin at every step. In one State Department meeting, officials seeking to demand transparency from the Chinese government say they were explicitly told by colleagues not to explore the Wuhan Institute of Virology's gain-of-function research, because it would bring unwelcome attention to U.S. government funding of it.

In an internal memo obtained by Vanity Fair, Thomas DiNanno, former acting assistant secretary of the State Department's Bureau of Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance, wrote that staff from two bureaus, his own and the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, "warned" leaders within his bureau "not to pursue an investigation into the origin of COVID-19" because it would "'open a can of worms' if it continued." ...

But for most of the past year, the lab-leak scenario was treated not simply as unlikely or even inaccurate but as morally out-of-bounds. In late March, former Centers for Disease Control director Robert Redfield received death threats from fellow scientists after telling CNN that he believed COVID-19 had originated in a lab. "I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis," Redfield told Vanity Fair. "I expected it from politicians. I didn’t expect it from science."

Your professional, rational, learned, judicious Ruling Class, everyone.

It's a gang of fat, stupid, incompetent Tom Nicholses taking their Twitter Drama into real life.

Dr. Richard Ebright, board of governors professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University, said that from the very first reports of a novel bat-related coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, it took him a nanosecond or a picosecond" to consider a link to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Only two other labs in the world, in Galveston, Texas, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, were doing similar research. "It's not a dozen cities," he said. "It's three places."

Then came the revelation that the Lancet statement was not only signed but organized by a zoologist named Peter Daszak, who has repackaged U.S. government grants and allocated them to facilities conducting gain-of-function research--among them the [Wuhan Institute of Virology, the "Wuhan Lab," abbreviated WIV] itself. David Asher, now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, ran the State Department's day-to-day COVID-19 origins inquiry. He said it soon became clear that "there is a huge gain-of-function bureaucracy" inside the federal government.

As months go by without a host animal that proves the natural theory, the questions from credible doubters have gained in urgency. To one former federal health official, the situation boiled down to this: An institute "funded by American dollars is trying to teach a bat virus to infect human cells, then there is a virus" in the same city as that lab. It is "not being intellectually honest not to consider the hypothesis" of a lab escape.

And why was that?


In the words of David Feith, former deputy assistant secretary of state in the East Asia bureau, "The story of why parts of the U.S. government were not as curious as many of us think they should have been is a hugely important one."

"Smelled Like a Cover-Up"

...

A small group within the State Departments' Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance bureau had been studying the Institute for months....

As officials at the meeting discussed what they could share with the public, they were advised by Christopher Park, the director of the State Department's Biological Policy Staff in the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, not to say anything that would point to the U.S. government’s own role in gain-of-function research, according to documentation of the meeting obtained by Vanity Fair.

Some of the attendees were "absolutely floored," said an official familiar with the proceedings. That someone in the U.S. government could "make an argument that is so nakedly against transparency, in light of the unfolding catastrophe, was...shocking and disturbing."

And yet: They enabled the cover-up, either actively or passively, by remaining stone silent as this "shocking" assault on the public's right to know was executed.

There's a lot more, but I'm stopping there to get this post up. I'll finish the article after I post. I'll update or post a Part 2 later with anything particularly interesting.

Update: From Tami.

In early July, the World Health Organization invited the U.S. government to recommend experts for a fact-finding mission to Wuhan, a sign of progress in the long-delayed probe of COVID-19's origins. Questions about the WHO's independence from China, the country's secrecy, and the raging pandemic had turned the anticipated mission into a minefield of international grudges and suspicion.

Within weeks, the U.S. government submitted three names to the WHO: an FDA veterinarian, a CDC epidemiologist, and an NIAID virologist. None were chosen. Instead, only one representative from the U.S. made the cut: Peter Daszak.

Can we say this investigation was "rigged" or will that get me banned from social media?

++++
The only thing I find surprising - and I shouldn't find it surprising anymore - is that the double-dipping and conflicts of interest are so transparent and obvious. It used to be (or maybe it just *appeared* to used to be - a point I grudgingly am coming to accept) that they'd find a different stooge to cover up for the first stooge, and deliberate confuse and entangle the paperwork to make it hard to track.

They didn't even bother to do that here. The guys who did it used a journal with name recognition to flatly intimidate opponents on their own orders. It is so transparent that it almost beggars belief. It is the kind of casual arrogance that long since crossed the line to hubris.

Even though they should be dancing on the end of a rope, I'll settle for never having to see or hear from the likes of Fauci again. No camera time is as bad as it'll get for this jerk.

You're both right. No-one will so much as have their hair mussed over this, save for Fauci, who will only be subject to a minimal amount of public embarrassment before being allowed to slink off stage to some emeritus position on a cable show as "America's Doctor." Everyone else gets off scot-free.

But people simply do not care. Everyone who couldn't hold a loved one before they died, everyone who has been crippled or maimed or otherwise hurt by the Kung Flu should be on the streets, dragging animals like Cuomo out and stringing them up. At the VERY LEAST.

But they won't. Because it's "not who we are" on our side, and on the left, grandma dying alone in a puddle of her own piss, gasping her last breaths to an empty room as her 'nurses' TikTok their brave fucking asses down the hall is a small price to pay for being rid of the Bad Orange Man.

I'm out of this thread. Too many necks need to be streched and never will, which is why I continue to say there will never be an act by the left that is "too far." People will strap the masks on and go in an orderly line to the showers.

I don't know about you but the odds aren't looking all that good esp. since they can't/won't say what causes the immediate bad reactions. Don't they know? Why not? And if they do know, why aren't they telling anyone?

Lots of questions but we're hashing out where it came from and not the actual you know deadly part of it which is the race to fill us full of chemicals they're not sure how it will react or are but are scared to admit it.

Why did Vanity Fair publish this? They're in the club. They're on Team Communist. These are their people (or, at least, people affiliated with their people).

What do they hope to gain by throwing Fauci and his cabal under the bus and making them the scapegoats? What are they covering up with this distraction?

77 Signed by 27 scientists, the statement expressed "solidarity with all scientists and health professionals in China" and asserted: "We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin."

Just one second here. Isn't a group of 27 "authorities" collaborating together with one another as an organized group to wield their combined voices in order to force a desired outcome sort of the definition of a conspiracy?

84 The Left has completely internalized COVID as an existential threat, and not even they can buy the wet market theory.

My theory on this sudden turn is that, with Trump gone, the smarter of the set that still maintain that COVID is the single greatest health threat in human history, need to know the origins in order to prevent it. It's earnest, but their worldview is acting as a barrier.

They're finding out that Trump was right, and it hurts. They're finding out that their hero Fauci was a lying sack of shit, and it hurts.

This isn't about hiding vote audits, this is about the actually intellectually curious on the Left finally finding a way to push aside their Trump hatred enough to start asking the right questions. The Left is going to lose a lot of people over this. Their institutions are going to grow weaker because of this.

And, remember, COVID didn't deliver the White House. Late Night cheating (on top of the already done mail cheating) did it. The Left is in power because of lies and cheating. This isn't a very strong foundation for governance. This is a house of cards that's never really stood to begin with.

85 I'd like to see the money trail for the funds that went to Wuhan. If it's a grant, who provided the money? If it was "redirected funds" from NIH's budget was it authorized, and by whom? The NIH director was questioned on FOX at some point... I didn't watch, but he apparently was uncooperative with some of the questions.

87 It's obvious by now that CV19 leaked from the Wuhan lab. The much bigger and potentially more explosive question is whether it was DELIBERATELY leaked. Prior to CV19, China was on the ropes. Trump was beating them up, Hong Kong was exploding, and their prestige and power were taking hits. Only the whores at Nike and the NBA continued servicing their Chinese masters. Then lo and behold, all of a sudden CV19 is all the rage, Trump is knocked back on his heels, HK disappears from the news literally overnight, and China is back to flexing its muscles. Total coincidence, right? Right??

In this case, I think they didn't do enough of either. Not enough silence and not enough noise, so the truth is getting out. It's probably more often than not a conspiracy this big STAYS intact, so it's pleasing to see this one unravel.

125 Guess the First: They're managing this story carefully and sacrificing their operators (Fauci and the like) to make damn sure that the "lab leak theory" becomes established, incontrovertible fact to provide cover for the real (albeit related) truth that China released it on purpose, possibly to distract from their crackdowns in Hong Kong.

Guess the Second: They're allowing this story to come out and are willing to lose some of their operators (Fauci and the like) to distract from any deleterious effects of the vaccination drive would be getting ready to surface if the media environment were calm.

These aren't, of course, the only options. I don't know if either of them are true. It could simply be that their power isn't as absolute as they thought and so they're cutting bait and pulling back to save their own skins. Who knows.

"former Centers for Disease Control director Robert Redfield received death threats from fellow scientists after telling CNN that he believed COVID-19 had originated in a lab."

We are really at the point where *scientists* are threatening each other with violence for seeking the truth?

See, this is why the Conservative strategy of withdrawal and boycott doesn't work. By allowing threats to gov funding over Global Warming, we now have the same corruption infecting our ability to fight disease, and it's evolved into death threats.

We need a political movement that is more vigorous, not necessarily violent, but not this constant Orderly Retreat that only opens up new fronts that we must also Retreat from.

Transmission through a laboratory incident: extremely unlikely.

Even with this, and my strict avoidance of social situations whenever possible, I've overheard about instances about absolutely petty nonsense that my supposed "betters" do. Trying to deprive others of credit, mostly, but about some other things too.

It's incredibly misguided to start labeling people secular saints simply because they're "Scientists". Especially if they're doing GOF experiments on the side.

182 The lysenkoism/New Dark Age stuff extends far far far beyond just what is described in the article.

The authors of a huge N study of mask efficacy in the current epidemic had to wait months before anyone would publish it. When asked when it was coming out, one author darkly joked "when somebody is brave enough to publish it".

When a Nobel prize winning scientist threw his initial thoughts out to acquaintances and colleagues for informal instant "peer review", their response was "you shouldn't be saying this". Nothing about his analysis, numbers, hypothesis.

"You shouldn't be saying this". From Nobel-level "scientists".

It's much much worse, and much broader, than just the clumsy and vile lying and manipulation and mob action to protect the ridiculous villains of this particular piece.

For Fenelon Spoke, and anyone else interested:

You can get specific data on the COVID 19 injection at the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting Site:

https://wonder.cdc.gov/vaers.html

The site is not user friendly at all. Before searching, you have to click an agree at the bottom of the page before you can do a data search. The numbers will come out wonky, depending on how your search them, which makes no sense. If you look at the first search category and use vaccine type and then event category, you will see that so far, 4,561 people have died of the vax, 15,911 have been hospitalized and 3,501 have a permanent disability.

Now what if the same odds were given only the "winner" died on the spot after their "number" came up. Would you take those odds?

What if there was an additional 200 chances out of 300 million that you would come down with some autoimmune disease that would be unpleasant to live with at best and likely to shorten your life to 5-10 years. Still willing to take that chance?

Oh and what do you win? if your number doesn't come up? Possibly not catching a disease that most people survive to the tune of about 96% or about like the regular flu or a bad cold.

Still seem like a good bet? Hope you're right cause this country has made that bet and a year from now is when the payoff starts.

And a question that hangs over any situation like this: how likely is it that an operation on this scale, in 6-7 places, would be leak-proof, and secure? Not very, seems to me.

There are no big names here besides Fauci and Trump that the short-attention-span-oh-look-a-shiny-object demographic can latch onto. Fauci, they can throw over the side and he'll land on his feet regardless, none of this will ever stick to him even though he should be somewhere in between a trial and an Italian lamppost. None of their other liberal false gods can be implicated in this. Obama is safely distanced, Biden was drinking Ensure on the campaign trail, and the rest are just faceless gray bureaucrats that nobody knows nor will long remember. *We* know what's going on, but *we* haven't proven to be enough to stop anything quite yet.

There's one, but it will never happen. That would be for Kamala to resign, for Joe to appoint Trump as VP, then for Joe to resign (or you can swap around the order, so long as Trump is appointed as VP followed by a resignation). This would be an informal, "we're doing this scheme to try to correct the damage done to the elections process by reinstating the true winner by legal means."

But it will never happen. Those in power would never permit it, and too many people would be too angry about it.

314 All of these damn "media" outlets like the Atlantic, our "intelligence" services and the entire "scientific" community must not be allowed to attempt to act like heroes for starting to cover this story so late in the game. This story came to the public despite all of their best efforts to kill it in its grave because:

1. They needed Trump - not China - to be to blame for covid so they could get him out of the office.

2. Trump could not be right about the origin - because he could not be seen to be right about anything or they would have a harder time getting him out of office.

3. China is to be protected - because the media companies want access to China's consumer market and many of our scientific and intelligence elites, in my opinion, admire Marxism and China's system or have been bought.

The successful removal of Trump from office (ending the purpose supporting points 1 and 2) and the accumulation of evidence by citizen journalists has overwhelmed the resistance to point 3. It is not those protecting China decided to do their jobs - its that they know a losing cause when they see it.

Trump said something like "what are they going to do when they find all these states had corrupted counts (and that Trump won, essentially) ... are they going to let Biden go on destroying the country for another three and a half years?"


And Sidney Powell has said the right outcome would be to correct it, and install Trump. Just because it is "unprecedented" and there is "no mechanism" does not mean it could not happen, especially with all the fraud -- which they say they have "hard evidence" of ... and I think what is not clear to us may actually be "hard evidence", like the impossible counts, other forensics from the machines, thousands of fake ballots (like the mailed ballots with no folds). Put it together and it is "Hard Evidence".

342 This half-assed kabuki version of "accountability" for idiots like Fauci and Draskzakaha or whatever his name is fine, but as noted by others, no way it will be allowed to get out of hand.

AND, it's actually only the 2nd most important issue.

The most important one - the science-free, indefensible response to the epidemic (which CONTINUES in most places) - will NEVER be examined, nor any kind of accountability allowed.

We're talking many many lives and trillions of dollars of losses and uncounted ruined lives and livelihoods - all for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. *Not one life "saved"* by ANY "mitigation" measures. A fact that stares the world in the face, and will be met with, mostly, silence, misdirection. It really is starting to make me think about the gigantic moral cancer at the heart of Russian society - the epochal injustice and crimes of the Soviet era, not a single one of which has ever met with justice.

So when COVID first showed up and the Wuhan lab was mentioned, my reaction was along the lines of "Well now, China, were you genetically manipulating viruses? Oh, what am I saying, look at you, of course you were!"

So much so that I put it out of my mind and never really thought any other explanation would ever be needed.

Jonathan Turley discussed this in his recent post. June 2nd

No, Trump Cannot Be Simply "Reinstated" As President

Sidney Powell, a former attorney for President Donald Trump, is back in the news with a prediction that Donald Trump could be "reinstated" as president. It is a mystery to me how Powell believes that Trump could be "resinstated" but the Constitution is clear: Joe Biden is our president and will remain so absent his death, incapacity, or his removal through impeachment.

Exactly. It parallels the unprecedented coverup of the "Plandemic", where all our institutions were threatening real scientists, forcing shut down of America itself, causing death to a million ... but sorry, the Bureaucracy has no mechanism for self correction, so we are going to murder another million, and close America (and Liberty) for good. Them's "the Rules".

455 Not sure who has or hasn't seen this but the full video (yes its 88 mins long) is a must watch. Its an interview with Dr. Peter McCullough who is an internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist, and Professor of Medicine at Texas A&M College of Medicine and he is warning against the Vaccine.

He's a heavy hitter who holds a lot of weight and he and his allies (which grow larger everyday) are punching folks in the mouth...

'Too Long for Me to Read': Fauci Dismissed Expert's Email About Chinese Disinformation on COVID-19
Controversial health official's lack of scientific curiosity raises troubling questions

Don't skip the best (worst) part via @GraduatedBen:

March 17, 2020. Tony Fauci gives instructions for who to work with to make movie about his life.

March 18, 2020. Asked for opinion on potential treatment which worked on original SARS, Fauci replies only "Thank you for your note."

exactly
Fauci is a distraction and they needed someone to take the blame. He's perfect. I love it if he really gets hit by this but I have my doubts. He was a martyr for the left and they protect their own. He caused a collapse worldwide, and millions of deaths. /shrug - all for the cause.

Trump is an idiot. Such a rube. China will never pay. What a dummy. But the rest of us know that China won't pay, but we also know they supposedly hold our debt, which we all know we have no intent on ever repaying. So no we probably won't get 10 trillion from China. But its a good place to start the negotiation.

You know, the big lumber companies like Weyerhauser and Georgia Pacific plant hundreds of thousands of acres of trees every year. I've wondered why they don't sell carbon offsets. I mean, it's not as though you have to certify that the carbon offset trees you're planting weren't going to be planted anyway, so why not?

I know I read this somewhere early on, but I can't remember where: The US was funding gain of function research in China. The State Dept visited the WooHoo lab and was alarmed at their lack of controls. Reported it up the chain. The Obama administration said it was too dangerous and ordered the funding stopped. Fauci stopped direct funding, but contracted with two companies to continue the funding sort of under-the-table.

I don't know it this is true, but it fits.

Maggie Haberman is right. Donald Trump really does believe that he is going to be "reinstated" as president, alongside former senators Perdue and McSally. This isn't "fake news" or the product of a garbled telegram. I can attest to it myself.
