NIH Quietly Removes Gain-of-Function Research Info From Its Site

Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Health is continuing its hasty - and quiet - backtracking of its ties to the lab in Wuhan, China, that some experts say may have leaked the same coronavirus that's caused panic and mayhem the world over for the past nearly two years - this time, by erasing information on its gain-of-function research from its website.

For those who felt vindicated when they heard others admit that the World Health Organization in March of 2009 changed its definition of “pandemic” to include the spread of much less lethal pathogens than previously allowed under the title, another moment of vindication might have arrived October 20, when Rutgers Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology Richard H. Ebright tweeted a copy of the official NIH admission that, just as many of us also have stated, the National Institutes of Health indirectly funded gain-of-function viral research at The Wuhan Institute of Virology, in Wuhan, China.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) -- who repeatedly has questioned National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) head Anthony Fauci about this and received what appeared to be dishonest answers – is one of the many who long have been trying to tell people about it, even as he fought Fauci and the NIH to get out the truth.

And, shortly after Professor Ebright tweeted the copy of the NIH admission, Paul re-tweeted the post, and offered a note of vindication, himself:

’I told you so’ doesn’t even begin to cover it here…

Specifically, Professor Ebright observed:

NIH corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director (Francis) Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan. NIH states that EcoHealth Alliance violated Terms and Conditions of NIH grant AI110964.

Of course, many of us already knew that, and we’ve been trying to spread the word for a long time. In fact, some speculate that the efforts of truth-tellers to uncover the secrets of the NIH and NIAID might have led to Collins’ announcement of his decision to resign come 2022.

Either way, now that NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence A. Tabak has admitted in a letter to Rep. James Comer (R-KY) that a “limited experiment” was conducted to determine whether “spike proteins from naturally present bat coronaviruses were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model,” we now have a direct, open admission to what the NIH calls “gain-of-function” experimentation, funded with grants of U.S. tax dollars.

Or, we have an open admission to what the agency used to call “gain-of-function.”

Curiously, just like the WHO changed the definition of “pandemic” in 2009 – allowing for the frightening term to be used for far less frightening and far less deadly pathogens than had previously been labeled “pandemics” when spread – the brains at the NIH have quietly…

…changed their official website, removing their old description of “gain-of-function” research.

Yep. Retired explosives expert for the US Military Jeremy Redfern on October 22 Tweeted the information to Dr. Paul and Dr. Ebright, and web-archives confirm, that the NIH has done some fast sleight-of-web-hand.

The original NIH page, with a broad title of, “Gain-of-Function Research Involving Potential Pandemic Pathogens” included this and much more:

The term gain-of-function (GOF) research describes a type of research that modifies a biological agent so that it confers new or enhanced activity to that agent.

The new page has a completely different title, which reads: “Research involving Potential Pandemic Pathogens.”

Notice something missing?

You’ll notice the same thing when scrolling down the page, because the entire lengthy paragraph about gain-of-function experimentation has been scrubbed.

So, obviously, if it’s not there, it must not have been happening, right?

Luckily, we have diligent pursuers of truth who will not let Fauci, Collins, Peter Daszak, and the people tied to EcoHealth Alliance and the entire Wuhan mess walk away. Appearing on Fox News last week, Senator Paul reiterated that he has referred Fauci to the Justice Department criminal charges of lying under oath to the Senate.

But, of course, Paul also observed that Attorney General Merrick Garland appears to be more concerned with intimidating “moms complaining about what they are teaching in school.”

But the truth is spreading, thanks to all the people who doggedly pursued it and tried to share the info. Big Tech have tried to stop us, politicians have tried to shut us up.

But the truth remains, gaining more attention by the hour, even if the unconstitutional NIH has tried to blind the world about all of the unconstitutional things it has been doing.
