Commentary | Dr. Fauci Finally Agrees to Investigate Wuhan Lab


by Naomi Fisher

Dr. Fauci is the Director of the National Institute of Health (NIH), the highest-paid employee in the federal government, and as one person labeled him, “Somewhat of a folk hero.”

After all his denials, lies and misleading statements Dr. Fauci was cornered during a Capitol Hill Hearing by Senator Rand Paul who kept a verbal barrage, kept insisting that under Dr. Fauci the NIH had been sending grant money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and insisted that the NIH and a Dr. Ralph Baric, PHD were involved in “Gain-of-Function” research with Wuhan Lab — Gain-of-Function is morphing animal viruses to infect humans. In some of the videos below it was brought out that many scientists have criticized Gain-of-Function research stating it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release — something we already know.

But Dr. Fauci firmly stated, “…has never and do not now fund…”

Dr. Fauci was so positive. He had me wondering if all the hints, the efforts of Former President Trump’s staff to find connections with the NIH and Dr. Fauci to Wuhan Lab were in error. It’s no secret Trump’s staffs’ efforts were blocked at every step they took. Because of those blocks Wuhan Lab took on a mystery all it’s own for many of us. Some people said they heard leaked statements by Chinese Doctors, who braved verbal and video statements then disappeared. Yet Dr. Fauci was so adamant at this hearing. Was the NIH truly involved? Was the virus really physically altered?

But Senator Paul continued. He had facts and a paper trial and then suddenly Dr. Fauci said, “Let me tell you why it was done.”

It was difficult to grasp that short sentence. After minutes of categorically denying everything Senator Paul was throwing at him — in that one statement the Doctor very calmly admitted everything was true. NIH did send grant money — as I understand it in direct violation of Federal Law or at least Federal Policy. And now, our “folk hero” has done another about face, is agreeing we should have an investigation into the whole Wuhan Lab incident!

How can we believe anything he says? He’s already publicly admitted to originally lying about the masks. Dr. Fauci is a compulsive liar!  Is he capable of ever telling the truth? To use a time-worn phrase, “The man talks out of both sides of his mouth.” 

But Senator Rand Paul put it into perspective when he later told a reporter, “At least he’s [Dr Fauci] being honest about his dishonesty.”

It’s really BEYOND BELIEF that our government bureaucrats would finance ‘gain of function’ research in Communist China. But they did. It is hard to fathom the mindset that would allow this and the blithering stupidity of our media that lionized the characters involved.

And Senator Paul is 100% correct….

He NAILED Fraudci for his lies and flip-flops….

George Pattone

Fauci is no folk hero…

He is a LIAR’S LIAR, however, and an ultimate swamp dweller, who is obviously gaming the system for personal gain, playing all sides against each other.

Anyone taking the jab is a complete sucker for government disinformation and has been played for a fool….
