Our tongue-in-cheek references aside, Peter Daszak is turning out to be a nuclear-grade, evil dude. The Bond villain imagery of Dr. Julius No, Auric Goldfinger, or Elliot Carver is not doing him justice.
Not. At. All.
There is one name, however, which keeps coming up related to the virus, tied to the funding, research, and now, the potential ongoing cover-up of gain-of-function research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. That name is Peter Daszak.
Daszak is the President of EcoHealth Alliance, the organization which has funneled at least $600,000 to the WIV in the course of the last several years. Daszak also has conducted his own research in conjunction with Dr. Shi Zhengli of the WIV, some of which is categorically and indisputably gain-of-function. But it seems that no matter where you turn on this story, Daszak is there.
From Mr. Hounsell’s detailed articles, here is what we know:
- On April 18, 2020, just six weeks after the initial outbreak in the United States, Daszak sent an email to Dr. Anthony Fauci, thanking him for his comments dismissing the lab-leak theory.
- Daszak has been mounting counter offensives about the Wuhan virus from Day 1. Daszak was one of the authors of the World Health Organization (WHO) report: “Report of the WHO-China Joint Mission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)”. In this report, the WHO determined that the virus likely originated from a zoonotic spillover or a natural mutation. This report did the work of absolving Daszak, and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, of any liability in the release of the virus. What’s more, Daszak was an “expert” for Science Feedback, Facebook’s Fact Check for all things COVID.
- The Lancet is a weekly, peer-reviewed medical journal. In the March 7, 2020 issue, a group of scientists from around the world wrote a letter which condemned conspiracy theories about the origins of COVID-19. Daszak was not only a signatory on the letter, but four other signers were either employees of EcoHealth Alliance, or on the board of directors.
There is so much more, and Scott recaps it all here.
Scott subsequently unearthed a video interview of Daszak appearing on CGTN, a Chinese State-owned media company, and arm of the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda machine. Like a good puppet, Daszak repeats all the lies, obfuscations, and falsehoods we have been fed over the past year by Fauci & Co. about COVID-19.
It appears Mr. Daszak’s ego and sense of mission could be his undoing. The National Pulse has revealed another video of the COVID Hatchet Man, appearing to proudly boast about his China “colleagues” and their manipulation of “killer” SARS-like coronaviruses.
Truly heartless. The more this gets uncovered, the more malignant Daszak becomes.
Daszak made the admission at a 2016 forum discussing “emerging infectious diseases and the next pandemic,” which appears to be at odds with Fauci’s repeated denial of funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
While describing how his organization sequences deadly viruses, Daszak describes the process of “insert[ing] spike proteins” into viruses to see if they can “bind to human cells” as being carried out by his “colleagues in China”:
“Then when you get a sequence of a virus, and it looks like a relative of a known nasty pathogen, just like we did with SARS. We found other coronaviruses in bats, a whole host of them, some of them looked very similar to SARS. So we sequenced the spike protein: the protein that attaches to cells. Then we… Well I didn’t do this work, but my colleagues in China did the work. You create pseudo particles, you insert the spike proteins from those viruses, see if they bind to human cells. At each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people.
Listen again to what he says at the end of the above video:
“You end up with a small number of viruses that really do look like killers. Then you look in people and you say… and the people that live in the region where this animal lives, that are exposed to that virus, do we see antibodies, specifically.”
Mad scientists exist, and you’re looking at one. This is Tuskegee Experiment, Joseph Mengele-level manipulation. Finally, it is all being exposed, and the evidence points more and more toward the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s creation of SARS-CoV-2, which gave us the COVID-19 virus, and the year from the pit of hell.
The walls are closing in on the Wuhan Institute of Virology and its unethical work. When the hammer falls, it needs to hit Peter Daszak first.
