Lying Corrupt Regime Government Finally Admits: You Bet Your Ass We Ordered the Gain-of-Function Code Red in Wuhan


An official at the NIH has admitted the obvious: Fauci and Francis Collins did in fact fund gain-of-function research at Wuhan.

At long last, National Institutes of Health (NIH) principal deputy director Lawrence Tabak admitted to Congress Thursday that US taxpayers funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China in the months and years before the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Dr. Tabak," asked Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.) of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, "did NIH fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology through [Manhattan-based nonprofit] EcoHealth [Alliance]?"

"It depends on your definition of gain-of-function research," Tabak answered. "If you're speaking about the generic term, yes, we did."

The response comes after more than four years of evasions from federal public health officials -- including Tabak himself and former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director Dr. Anthony Fauci -- about the controversial research practice that modifies viruses to make them more infectious.

Tabak added that "this is research, the generic term [gain-of-function], is research that goes on in many, many labs around the country. It is not regulated. And the reason it's not regulated is it poses no threat or harm to anybody."

Dr. Bryce Nickels, a professor of genetics at Rutgers University and co-founder of the pandemic oversight group Biosafety Now, told The Post the exchange "was two people talking past each other."

"Tabak was engaging in the usual obfuscation and semantic manipulation that is so frustrating and pointless," Nickels said, adding that the NIH bigwig was resisting accountability for risky research that can create pathogens of pandemic potential.

He continues supporting Fauci's nonsense distinction between "general gain-of-function" and gain-of-function specifically designed to make a virus infectious for humans. Fauci always lies and claims there's no "gain of function" being funded, but he's relying on this b***shit distinction. He defines "gain of function" to mean a specific kind of gain of function, and then says he's not funding gain of function.

And please do note, he never says that he is employing a narrow definition of gain of function. He just states with no caveat or narrowing of definition that he's not funding gain of function, period.

Perjuring himself. Repeatedly.

And now this Dr. Tabak says well, sure, if you're talking about "general gain of function, we did do that."

Obama banned Fauci from doing gain of function research. So during the Trump transition, Fauci rewrote the definition of gain of function to be a narrow one, and then began funding gain of function. He repeatedly lied under oath in claiming he didn't fund gain of function, and he never even said that he was talking about "Gain of function, as I personally define it." He claimed he wasn't funding gain of function at all, under any definition.

Update: Commenters are telling me this happened during the transition -- but under Obama. Ben Had writes, "Dec 19, 2017 ban lifted on gain of function."

By the way, this distinction is entirely fraudulent because when you start deliberately mutating viruses, you cannot predict what the result will be. It's a genetic toss of the dice every time. So every "serial passage" through a humanized mouse has a good chance of, of course, making the virus infectious to humans.

It's like swearing you never broke a window and then later admitting you did throw a stone at the window, but you secretly hoped that the stone would just bounce off the window and leave it intact, and you were surprised to see it break, so by your definition, you never actually broke the window at all.

No intent, your honor! We never wrote down on a piece of paper that we hoped to create a highly infectious new disease!

Fauci knows this. He knows his "definition" is entirely a lie and it was something contrived to allow him to break the law against funding gain-of-function with the plausible deniability of a technical semantic defense.

He is a murderer and a perjurer. We cannot convict him for his millions of murders, but we can convict him of his dozens of perjuries.

This vicious malignant dwarf must spend the rest of his golden feather-bedded years in a federal prison. He spent his whole working life in the federal system; he should die there too.
