Dr. Fauci in 2012 – The Benefits of Gain-of-Function Research Outweighed the Costs


In 2012 Dr. Fauci stated that he believed the benefits associated with gain-of-function research far outweighed the costs (i.e. pandemics). 

According to Zerohedge:

America’s top virologist, Anthony Fauci, argued in 2012 that the risks of a lab accident sparking a pandemic are outweighed by the potential benefits of manipulating viruses via gain-of-function research, according to previously unsurfaced remarks reported by Sharri Markson via The Australian.

“In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic?” Fauci wrote in the American Society for Microbiology in 2012, adding “Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario – however remote – should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?”

“Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks,” Fauci continued. “It is more likely that a pandemic would occur in nature, and the need to stay ahead of such a threat is a primary reason for performing an experiment that might appear to be risky.

Also in 2012 Fauci spoke before Congress.  The transcripts from his talk and the video were difficult to find as if they’ve been hidden for some reason.  In 2012 before the Senate, here is Fauci’s testimony:

This video was located by Scuba Mike on Twitter.

In the transcript Fauci refers to DURC which stands for dual-use or gain of function research.  He admitted the possibility of malevolent applications of the research:

As you mentioned in your statement, the issue at hand is the ongoing threat of the emergence of an H5N1 pandemic influenza and the research that was supported by the NIH to address this threat. The publication of the results of such research in the form of the two manuscripts that you mentioned has focused considerable public attention on the issue of dual-use research, namely research that is directed at providing new information critical to the public health, but at the same time has the potential for malevolent applications.

Fauci noted that the research should be transparent but a decade later was all but transparent in regards to his actions related to the China coronavirus (COVID-19):

The ultimate goal of the NIH in its embrace of this new policy is to ensure that the conduct and communication of research in this area remain transparent and open at the same time as the risk-benefit ratio of such research clearly tips towards benefitting society…

…The public, which has a stake in the risks as well as in the benefits of such research, deserves a rational and transparent explanation of how these decisions are made. The upcoming dialogue related to this policy certainly will be informative and, hopefully, productive in its goal of benefiting the public with the fruits of such research while ameliorating the associated risks. Thank you.

Dr. Fauci was involved in gain-of-function research for the past decade or longer.  He believed the rewards outweighed the risks.  Then along came the China cornonavirus – COVID-19.

Delta, United Airlines Are Providing African Migrants Free Flights To The U.S.

Delta, United Airlines Are Providing African Migrants Free Flights To The U.S.


As hundreds of illegal immigrants surge across the southern border daily, migrants from Africa are gaining entry into the United States with free plane tickets paid funded by American taxpayers.

Delta, United Airlines Are Providing African Migrants Free Flights To The U.S.

Asylum seekers wanting entry to the United States from Africa typically embark on journeys to South America by boat or plane, then make a treacherous trek on foot through Colombia and Panama towards the United States.

Now, migrants and their families can entirely circumvent checkpoints at the U.S. southern border

Miles4Migrants, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to donating frequent flyer miles to refugees and their family members provides free flights to thousands of Africans refugees into the interior of the U.S.

Delta, United Airlines Are Providing African Migrants Free Flights To The U.S.

Miles4Migrants, which is funded by the Shapiro Foundation and the Tripadvisor Foundation, works with Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Uber, and a network of over 50 nonprofit partners including the UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency.

In June, Uber launched a ride credit fund to support Miles4Milate, allowing migrants to safely get to their destination using donated frequent flyer miles and credit card points.

The Democratic Republic of Congo Africa has been the primary country of origin of refugees seeking admittance to the United States following the country’s 2019 Ebola outbreak, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Illegal immigrants can also receive free commercial flights into the U.S. interior from Catholic Charities, a non-profit organization funded by US taxpayers.

Catholic Charities has assisted more than 700 border crossers with “pass[ing] through the hotels” in southern California before taking off on commercial flights to resettle into the U.S. interior, Daily Mail reports.

Once into the United States, illegal immigrants are allowed to bypass photo identification requirements all American citizens are required to adhere to. They are able to board flights without a photo ID and do not have to verify their coronavirus or vaccination status.

Migrants are relying on the network of nonprofit organizations for entry into the US.

While the Trump administration purchased discounted tickets to deport illegal migrants back to their countries of origin, Biden’s catch and release mandate essentially accommodate illegal aliens with a taxi service.

Since Biden has taken office in January, “the number of [illegal immigrant] minors in federal custody has more than tripled to over 7,000. In response, the Biden administration has flown approximately 7,200 border-crossers into the U.S. interior on domestic commercial flights from February 19 to April 22 and continues to offer free flights to illegal aliens to their destination of choice.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is reportedly directing “ICE to help transport migrants northward so they can be processed and released.”

Biden officials are also placing border crossers in free hotel rooms at $71 to $90 a night who stay for sometimes less than 48 hours before one of the assisting nonprofit organizations puts them on commercial flights, for free, into the U.S. interior.

While the Biden administration’s open-border policy welcomes migrants from around the world with open arms, Cubans fleeing persecution from a communist dictator in Cuba are the exception.

Any Cuban who tries to sail over to Florida or the US in any location “will not come” into America,   Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas warned.

“Do not risk your life attempting to enter the United States illegally,” Mayorkas said in a July 14 briefing. “You will not come to the United States.”

Even Cubans who make it to the US and can prove they face torture and literal danger will be sent to “third countries” to be resettled.

EXCLUSIVE: CDC COVID-19 Hospitalization Data Will Shock You – What the Media is Not Showing You


Guest post by Bob Bishop

COVID-19 Hospitalization Data Challenges Biden Administration and CDC Histrionics.

The Biden Administration, Saint Fauci the Valiant, and the CDC technocrats are fearmongering by repeating speculation new COVID-19 variants are starting another deadly wave.

The vast majority of the population is healthy and has little or no risk for a severe COVID-19 infection. The focus should be on the most susceptible population for potential severe and lethal conditions.  A new CDC study bears this out.

TRENDING: Reward Offered: $10,000 to the First Individual Who Can Successfully Address and Defend as Legitimate the 2020 Election Anomaly Referred to as the ‘Drop and Roll’

The CDC just released in its Preventing Chronic Diseases Journal (July 2021 Volume 18, E66) a study with a large sample of Convid-19 hospitalizations (4.9 million admissions) from March 2020 – March 2021. The study concluded that comorbidities (two or more diseases or medical conditions) cause severe COVID-19 illness.

Hospitalization Statistics

ICU admissions were 46.2% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The volume of the patients hospitalized with comorbidities was 94.9%, with a death rate of 15.5%.  So if you are healthy, there is little risk of hospitalization or even death.

The risk of death while hospitalized was extremely low at 2.7% for patients with no comorbidities. The risk of death rises with each increment of conditions.  Stratifying mortality rates for comorbidities for those with one condition, the rate is 5.2%, 2-5 conditions, the rate was 12.2%, 6-10 conditions were 18.7%, and over ten conditions were 21.6%. Below is a summary of the hospitalization data.

The highest prevalence of underlying conditions associated with severe COVID-19 illness were hypertension, lipid metabolism disorders, obesity, diabetes complications, coronary atherosclerosis, and other heart diseases.  The televised hospital discharge celebrations demonstrate many of the patients were morbidly obese.

The health bureaucrats, until recently, claimed there weren’t a sufficient number of ventilators to intubate patients who didn’t have the ability to breathe. The overall intubation rate for hospitalized patients was 31.2%. The risk of being put on a ventilator rises with the number of comorbidities. Once a patient is on a ventilator, the survival rate appears to be abysmally low.

Conclusion

The healthcare bureaucrats failed miserably by not instituting a selective quarantine for those with comorbidities and adequately educating the general public.  The promotion of the experimental mRNA antigen vaccine violates informed consent process where the health care provider educates a patient about the risks, benefits, and alternatives of a given procedure or intervention.

EXCLUSIVE: CDC COVID-19 Hospitalization Data Will Shock You – What the Media is Not Showing You

Increasing the immune system using D3 and C vitamins, Melatonin, and zinc was swept under the rug to promote the pharmaceutical industry’s experimental vaccine. Several re-purposed drugs like Hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc, Ivermectin, Remdesivir, and magnesium have proven effective in combating COVID-19 infections, alleviating suffering, and reducing hospitalizations and deaths.  The last thing the medical-industrial complex wants is an informed public taking responsibility for their health.

The CDC now demanding the public to re-mask confirms vaccinations do not stop you from catching COVID or transmitting it.  Many more severe infections will continue to occur due to ignoring traditional therapies.  Blaming the unvaccinated populace for spreading COVID is immoral.
