(READ) Proposed bill to defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology

Republican members of Congress have introduced “The Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act.”

It would permanently cut U.S. funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. A growing number of scientists have said they believe Covid-19 leaked from the lab.

Despite confusion, misleading statements from some public health officials and politicians, and much misreporting, U.S. taxpayer funds have gone both directly and indirectly to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and/or its scientists in recent years.

Read and watch my exclusive investigation on Covid-19 origins and US taxpayer funds for research with China.

As we first exposed last April, the Wuhan lab received over $600,000 in taxpayer funds via the NIH for dangerous coronavirus experiments that many experts believe caused the pandemic.  We also confirmed as recently as yesterday that the lab is still eligible to receive even more taxpayer funds from the NIH.  WIV also received funding from DOD and USAID in the past. In February of this year, WCW and the Organic Consumers Association called on the White House to defund WIV.

According to White Coast Waste Project, “The Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act is being led by Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) (who sent this letter to NIH in Feb) and cosponsored by Reps. Brian Mast (R-FL), Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), Diana Harshberger (R-TN), Bill Posey (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Tiffany (R-WI), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Robert Aderholt (R-AL), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Greg Steube (R-FL), Bob Gibbs (R-OH), Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), and Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ).”

Shipping tax dollars to the notorious CCP-run Wuhan animal lab where there’s no transparency and accountability about how our money is spent is a recipe for disaster. Taxpayers should not be forced to bankroll animal experiments to supercharge coronaviruses or any other reckless spending at this bio-agent lab and recent polls show that a majority of Democrat and Republican voters agree. We applaud Rep. Scott Perry and his colleagues for their outstanding efforts to protect taxpayers and public health by introducing legislation to permanently defund the Wuhan animal lab.

The possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic started with a laboratory acquired infection at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and could have happened during coronavirus ‘infection experiments’ funded by NIAID, is reason enough to cut off funding. The U.S. should have never funded gain-of-function research on potential pandemic pathogens, and least of all at foreign institutions that lay outside of our regulatory control.

    We need to find the bureaucrat who, after Obama suspended funding to Wuhan lab in 2014, allowed it to proceed via 3rd party later.
    Fauci is a dissembler playing CYA.

      NIH Lifts Funding Pause on Gain-of-Function Research

      Today, the National Institutes of Health announced that it is lifting a funding pause dating back to October 2014 on gain-of-function (GOF) experiments involving influenza, SARS, and MERS viruses. GOF research is important in helping us identify, understand, and develop strategies and effective countermeasures against rapidly evolving pathogens that pose a threat to public health. The funding pause was lifted in response to today’s release of the Department of Health and Human Services Framework for Guiding Funding Decisions about Proposed Research Involving Enhanced Potential Pandemic Pathogens (link is external)(HHS P3CO Framework). The HHS P3CO Framework describes a multi-disciplinary review process, involving the funding agency and a Department-level review group, that considers the scientific merits and potential benefits of the research, as well as the potential to create, transfer, or use an enhanced potential pandemic pathogen. This framework formalizes robust oversight for federally funded research with enhanced pathogens of pandemic potential. It is the product of an extensive deliberative process undertaken by experts throughout the public and private sectors, and is aligned with the Recommended Policy Guidance for Departmental Development of Review Mechanisms for Potential Pandemic Pathogen Care and Oversight (P3CO)(link is external).

      We have a responsibility to ensure that research with infectious agents is conducted responsibly, and that we consider the potential biosafety and biosecurity risks associated with such research. I am confident that the thoughtful review process laid out by the HHS P3CO Framework will help to facilitate the safe, secure, and responsible conduct of this type of research in a manner that maximizes the benefits to public health.

      I would especially like to acknowledge the efforts of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine(link is external) for their thoughtful deliberations on the issues surrounding this important area of research. The work of these committees was instrumental in guiding the United States Government in its job of creating rigorous policy that allows vital research to move forward.

      Fauci is on record saying categorically the NIH has never funded the WIV. Someone should tackle him about this.

  2. Not a single democrat to sponsor this common sense bill? I suggest they go further and stop training CCP scientist how to make similar bio weapons at our military labs. I’m surprised that there are not current US laws prohibiting funding bio weapons research programs of foreign countries.

    1. December 2017, the Republicans were in Charge, and started this experiment up again,after Obama had stopped it in 2014.. Have an investigation as to why the new administration of Donald Trump NIH wanted to restart this …I fully agree with the rest of your statement, to stop bioweapons .

  3. The bill should include strict defunding of ALL gain of function research and creation of bioweapons per the agreement we entered into with other nations of the world several years ago. The fact that these points are not addressed has me wondering if this is a serious bill or just papering over truth that leaked out.

  4. How were they allowed to work (American tax payers money) with Communist China in the first place is beyond me,

  5. It’s crazy the things that this country pays for. Meanwhile after spending money all over the planet we hear politicians say they need to raise our taxes to cover their crazy spending. If you can’t fund the programs to keep us safe and the infrastructure in good shape then stop giving money to everyone else. What’s really nuts is we fund all this stuff and then the tell us what a bad country we are.

  6. Defunding the Wuhan lab isnt even close enough to what needs to be done. ZERO taxpayer money should be flowing into communist china.

  7. Coronavirus and viruses cure:
    1 heaped teaspoon of salt in a mug of warm water, (can be cold) cup a hand and sniff or snort the whole lot up, spitting anything which comes down into your mouth – no reaction fine, blow out your nose, flush away, washing your hands afterwards, you don’t have a virus .
    A reaction, you have a virus – retain the salt water in your head for as long as the soreness lasts (2-3 minutes) then blow out your nose, flush away, washing hands afterwards and do this treatment 3 times a day, morning, noon, night, or more often, until the soreness goes away, when you have killed off the virus in your head and you won’t get the disease it will become, as I have done these past 26 years and to this, I add those virus related diseases which remain unknown to us, but are delivered by a virus, as in (unspecified) air pollution. Simple.
    Me, 9,490 days never ill, salt water cure vs vaccines about 160 days and horrid side effects, The European Union’s vaccine injury reporting system had logged 330,2018 adverse event reports, including 7,766 deaths, as of April 17, 2021, and the U.S. reporting system had logged 118,902 adverse event reports as of April 23, including 3,544 deaths and 12,618 serious injuries (Mercola) it is a test vaccine and the makers cannot be held accountable for whatever it does, in the short, or longer term – you are human laboratory white mice, all said and done. Vaccinated. Too late!!
    Try it, if you are satisfied with the results, pass the cure along, if results are not excellent, there are still the untested, trial vaccines to fall back on.
    I never have Flu shots, or this vaccine either. No point doing the above salt water cure and then having vaccine shots too – like Duh!!
    About 26 years ago, I read the report from a posh Research Center in America, where the author suggested, in his research paper, that his experiments with Salt Water cured flu type colds and he in turn referred to the Swedish or Norwegian Army (I think), who had barrels filled with Salt Water, attached to a hose, out of the bottom, which soldiers used to flush out their heads, when they thought they were getting a cold – and their troops never got colds.
    I have been doing it ever since and neither do I, from any virus related “thing”.
    There are weak salt water spray preparations you can buy from your local chemist, to clear your head. To my way of thinking, (as above) you need a stronger salt water solution to wash out your inner head and no spray is ever going to be enough to do that, which is proof of safety concerns, regarding salt, as above.
    If you are allergic to salt – don’t do as I suggest!!

  8. Anybody want to talks about the possible Covid 19 origins at Fort Detrick and the US owned base and the billions of dollars of tax payer money wasted on useless biological weapons research there?
