House Includes Funding For Fauci-Fave EcoHealth Alliance In New NDAA

P. Gardner Goldsmith | December 12, 2023

When will a majority of Americans open their eyes to the growing political favoritism -- a.k.a. mercantilism, a.k.a. economic fascism -- the federal and state governments have slid into their lives? When will they tire of repeatedly discovering that their self-seen patriotism has been levered to fill the corrupt coffers of people who operate institutions, engage in activity, and push philosophies that not only run counter to their ideals, but cause them, their progeny, their jobs, and millions around the planet generational, irreparable, harm?

When will they start to realize that what they see as their own solid “patriotism” is inconsistent, especially when it comes to things like the US Constitution?

Perhaps they'll understand after they look more closely at the annual “play” on people who want to show their “support for our troops,” the always poisonous, always pork-filled, always unconstitutional National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

This year, one prominent political figure admired by many conservatives took a close look, and was enraged not only by what is in it, but by the way she and other conservative colleagues in the House were treated by Speaker Mike Johnson (R- LA) as he blocked them from having the roles he promised, and as he worked with non-conservatives to spike the “patriotic punch” of the NDAA with gigantic icebergs of political pork.

On December 6, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) released a phone-recorded video shot as she moved into and out of an elevator in the Capitol. She was not pleased by Johnson’s seemingly disingenuous behavior, and not pleased by the NDAA.

“The whole NDAA deal was made between Speaker Johnson, Chuck Schumer and the HAS (House Armed Services) Committee, and people like me, we didn’t get to participate. We were appointed to participate to make sure no money for abortion, no money for trans, for members like me standing up for Americans who are sick and tired of funding the Ukraine war, we had taken the 300 million out of the defense bill. Well, let me tell you what the final product is and the deal that was made.”

Clearly agitated and walking as she talked to the cam, she added:

“That funding is there for abortion travel. The policy is still in place for trans and the military and everything that goes with it. Democrat trans policy, Democrat abortion policy, 300 million for Ukraine is back in the NDAA…”

Indeed, every one of Greene’s points – including the objection to funds for military members stationed in states with stronger statutes against abortion to travel to states with more lax statutes against abortion – is valid.

And there is more.

In fact, as Jake Smith reports for The Daily Caller, through this new “National Defense Appropriations Act” people like Johnson and Schumer are raising the proverbial middle finger not only at everyone who is aware of when life begins, aware of the unconstitutional nature of international handouts, and aware of the absurd idea of funding “sex-changes” for military members, they also are insulting people who know of the sketchy ties a “nonprofit” organization had/has to both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Anthony Fauci’s old plaything, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) as the feds engaged (and still engage) in doing “viral research” they are not constitutionally sanctioned to do.

“The current draft of the 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) contains a provision allowing funding for an organization that funneled money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), according to a review of the bill text released yesterday (Dec. 6).

EcoHealth Alliance is a nonprofit organization that took taxpayer funding and funneled it to China’s WIV for laboratory research; the WIV is suspected by multiple federal agencies to be the birthplace of the COVID-19 pandemic. The NDAA contains a provision that will continue allowing Department of Defense (DOD) funds to certain divisions of EcoHealth, despite outside pressure to strip it entirely.”

Smith goes on to report that the funds aren’t “supposed” to go to EcoHealth-funded Wuhan viral research – but, of course, any tax funds given to Peter Daszak’s organization are, essentially, fungible.

Readers might recall not just the ties between EcoHealth, the NIH/NIAID, DARPA and the Wuhan lab’s work (which started at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and was shifted to Wuhan during a so-called, fraudulent “halt” in Gain-of-Function viral research during the last year of the Obama Administration), they also might remember that in 2021, the feds actually placed Daszak on the “investigatory team” that comically “looked into” their OWN work in Wuhan to determine that the SARS CoV2 pathogen had a zoonotic origin, not a man-made origin.


And now, as Smith notes:

“Leadership’s shady backdoor NDAA dealings that disregarded the will of the House and Senate are shameful and undemocratic and place public health in peril by continuing to funnel taxpayer dollars to the reckless EcoHealth Alliance, whose perilous partnership with the Wuhan lab on risky gain-of-function animal experiments likely caused COVID and killed millions,” Justin Goodman, senior vice president at White Coat Waste, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement on Thursday.”

And Smith adds what I noted above. The fungibility of the money:

“The final draft of the NDAA will not allow any funds to be used toward EcoHealth Alliance locations, subsidiaries and affiliates in China, according to a copy of the bill text. However, DOD funds appropriated in the NDAA draft can still be used to fund other EcoHealth sites worldwide, including in the United States.”

What is most upsetting here? Is it the history of EcoHealth Alliance? Its possible ties to innumerable deaths, politicians pushing mask and jab and lockdown mandates that ran counter to the US Constitution and basic morals? The massive Trump and Biden spending sprees that, also, were unconstitutional?

Is it the offensive way Anthony Fauci and then-NIH Director Francis Collins behaved – seemingly to cover their tracks and the tracks of folks like Daszak until they no longer could continue the ruse? Even the left-leaning Vanity Fair in October of 2021 admitted the vileness of that facet of the absurd COVID scam:

“On Wednesday (October 20), the NIH sent a letter to members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce that acknowledged two facts. One was that EcoHealth Alliance, a New York City–based nonprofit that partners with far-flung laboratories to research and prevent the outbreak of emerging diseases, did indeed enhance a bat coronavirus to become potentially more infectious to humans, which the NIH letter described as an ‘unexpected result’ of the research it funded that was carried out in partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The second was that EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms of its grant conditions stipulating that it had to report if its research increased the viral growth of a pathogen by tenfold.”

Gosh, we might just hear echoes of Fauci’s fatuous July 20, 2021 statements to Rand Paul, as the former appeared to perjure himself in a denial about federal funding for the Gain-of-Function research and, when called on it by Paul, added this haughty:

‘I totally resent the lie you are now propagating.”

But it’s not just the matter of “viral research in Wuhan” that is offensive, and not just Fauci and Collins’ behavior. It’s not even the large-scale, systemically fascistic anti-Constitution attitude and behavior of the US government under two presidents and many states under megalomaniacal governments. It’s the fact that many Americans don’t know that the feds are not supposed to engage in ANY viral research during times of peace – aka, when there is no declared War.

The Founders’ concept for the US military was that there was to be no standing army (this is noted in the California Constitution) and all Americans, composing the Militia, were to be available for their states of citizenship. Only upon a Declaration of War, or if a governor or the legislature of another state asked for federal assistance to stop a threat to its republican form of government, would the states’ militias be able to move under federal control.

Thus, even if one were to argue that “viral research” could be done under the auspices of “military countermeasures” against potential foreign viral attack, no federal funds for such activity could be spent unless the Militia were called into service in one of the above situations.

Most Americans don’t know this. Likewise, they don’t sufficiently question the NDAA even for funding the military in all the bases the US has placed around the world.

Politicians depict criticism of unconstitutional US military activity as “being against the troops.” But the troops should not be where they are, and they ought to know it.

We cannot overlook the incredibly offensive funding ideas in this new NDAA. And we can see slippery behavior on the part of the Speaker.

But we also can ask our neighbors how often they have stood against other unconstitutional funding – even of the US military.
