is #Beaglegate just a pretext to get rid of fauci?
the knives are out, but is this just cuomo 2.0 to hide the dirty laundry before it all gets aired?
i have been reluctant to weigh in on this issue because, frankly this sort of stuff appalls me and is all too common in medical research.
if you have not seen the story, please put down whatever you’re eating. you can read it HERE.
this is the stuff of nightmares. it’s the kind of thing that the director of “saw 27: the enslicening” would balk at to gross out horror movie buffs.
they took defenseless dogs and fed them to sand flies who literally ate their heads alive. many dogs had their vocal cords removed because their “incessant barking” was bothering the researchers while they were working.
"Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive," White Coat Waste told Changing America. "They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies."
the letter from congress enquiring into this was signed by a couple dozen reps from both parties.
i can see literally no useful knowledge to be gained by this study. it feels more like a “why we should have known the neighbor’s kid would one day turn into ted bundy” story than any sort of legitimate science.
and there looks to be a pattern here. (video playable)
what this guy has against snoopy is anyone’s guess, but this is vile, appalling research. it should be banned on moral grounds everywhere. even considering using government funds for it should be not just a fireable offense, but a jailable one.
but here’s the thing: none of this is new. white coat waste was all over this 5 years ago.
“In 2016, WCW released Spending to Death. In the basement of NIAID’s lab in Bethesda, Maryland, infectious sand flies were strapped to beagles, and fed on them for 22 months. The dogs developed infectious lesions, before Fauci’s staff killed and dissected them.”
this report on tunisia has been out since august. there was another last year as well. this is not new information, only newly foregrounded.
there is a lot of terrible medical research that gets done. some of the cruelty to animals is surreal. all of it is evil. (and must also be weighed in the character of the people involved when pondering “would they be psychopathic enough to do X?” yeah, more than one might expect for many…)
i suspect you could find 100 examples of work this bad or worse in a short stint of digging. it’s one of those ugly truths polite society tries very hard not to see because wondering if 2,000 bunnies were tortured to death to develop your acne cream leads to bad nights of sleep.
this is awful stuff, it pulls the heart strings, outrages any even remotely moral human, and suddenly, 25 congress critters have sprung into action demanding action. and yet they remain silent on the bigger issue of :
hey tony, you perjured yourself to us about gain of function and look to be lying still.
you claim that the bat derived corona virus that escaped from wuhan labs where you were funding research into bat corona viruses with enhanced spike proteins and lying about about it could not possibly be a virus you/ecohealth/daszak were working on. it must be some other virus.
and hey, has ecohelath even given you the reports for the last couple years where it was supposed to tell you what they were working on? because you told us they had not.
we already know they took their work WAY too far and created viruses that generate 1,000-10,000 X the viral load of their natural predecessors. even exceeding 10, itself bat guano insane, was supposed to be reported.
and how about the deliberate cover up campaign about this leak you aided and abetted if not outright quarterbacked. (and quite likely did QB)?
and aren’t you aiding and abetting and seeking to protect funding for peter and his echohealth gang still?
the hits just keep on coming and the “it wasn’t me” fauci narrative is disintegrating like a sugar candy wetsuit. this is all getting ready to come out in live living color.
so is this really about beagles or is this just about “it’s time to get rid of the culpable”?
because i suspect it’s the latter.
and i’m not the only one reading the tea leaves.
fauci has long been an embarrassment. he’s been wrong on every substantive utterance he has made since about may of last year. but he’s also well liked and popular with much of the public. he’s been borderline beatified with every new talking point turned to gospel by a public and media desperate for someone to tell them what to do in a loud, authoritative, telegenic voice. and tony certainly never lacks for that.
(this is a real product, BTW. there are 30 more just like it.)
tony is vain, arrogant, and amoral to the point of seeming to have no sense of self image or of shame. he’s never going to take the high road and bow out the way his boss francis collins did.
he’s not giving up the power, the prestige, the attention, and the kingmaker ego frisson of doling out gobs of grant money and deciding what “the science” is.
he’s also not going to let anyone new step in and have a rummage around in the files to see what was going on. informational sanitation is paramount in the fauci survival plan just now and that requires staying in control. he’s not going anywhere.
fauci, like the public health herpes that he is, is forever.
and this creates a political gordian knot for the brandon administration.
how do you get rid of a cannon this loose when despite all the friendly fire, he’s FAR more popular than you are?
there’s no way to untangle it over covid. so you cut the knot.
you make him unpopular and secure his ouster by other means and if there is one thing that just about no one in america is in favor of, it’s animal cruelty.
this goes right at the core of facui’s most fervent base: the middle and upper class woman. they love their pets, and this makes you a monster. you do not get forgiven for torturing schmoopsie poo to death. oh no you don’t.
this is a carefully calculated heart shot to see if they can make an issue go away.
after all, it worked last time.
remember cuomo? remember his insane and reckless nursing home policy and then all the lies about it? the cover up to the justice department? well it all just went away, didn’t it?
we went from this:
to a relentless drumbeat of “you were a letch to your staff and coworkers and gropers gotta go.”
the parallels are stark. popular gov, about to induce savage scandal, time to get him out.
and like #Beaglegate, this was hardly new news. andy was a notorious creep. every single human that knew him personally knew this and had for decades. subtle, andy ain’t.
it was ignored and swept under the rug because “andy is on our team.” but when andy started to look like an embarrassment for “our team” suddenly, it surfaces.
ever wonder about this? ever wonder why so many politicians with clearly egregious behavioral, financial, and moral issues are not only tolerated by coddled and enabled by their parties? what if it’s because the parties love that? what if it’s a form of control?
we love you in power because we have power over your dirty laundry. we lovingly collect it and protect it in case one day, you gotta go and we need it.
andy had the sense to go quietly. i suspect a deal was struck. step down and we call it “got a little gropey and inapprops.” fight, and the justice department will drop an anvil on your head over the nursing home cover up. federal prison is no place for a sweet boy like you.
andy gets to leave only lightly tarred, the NY dems sweep the justice dept under the rug, they roll in a new governor who is twice as ideological and leftist, drop a one time bolus of “look at all these deaths we forgot to count, new broom seeps clean, yadda yadda,” and the circle of political life continues and the distance from the event renders it easy to simply move past it.
“deny, deny, deny, it’s old news” was the classic clinton “3 yards and a cloud of dust” play for a reason. it’s because it works.
and we cannot let it work for fauci. even if tony gets forced out, if the US funded the development of covid 19 (and who knows what else) we need to know. we need to look through ALL these programs.
if the vaccines that so implausibly (even impossibly) quickly popped out of the NIH and of previously little known bioNtech that just happened to get a big investment from billy gates right at the end of 2019 and instantly landed a pfizer deal that’s been one of the most lucrative in the history of the drug industry happened to be laying around because they had already been under development for years in wuhan (or based on that work) we need to know.
if the gang at the WEF held it’s “pandemic preparedness war game” for a pandemic that just happened to look a lot like the one we got a coupe months later because some or all of them knew it was already underway, we need to know. was that a coincidence or a plenary planning session for our build back betters?
peter and his merry band of bat virus hotwirers are still out there and have a new home (and budget) at columbia university in NYC, a university group that not only won awards from the CCP for work at the wuhan institute of virology, but also looked involved in the GoF cover up.
the band is already back together. do you seriously want to see what the next album they drop is?
getting facui out at NIH is great. let’s do it. but let’s do it for the right reasons. underwriting needless dog torture is, of course, a good reason. and if that’s what we get, so be it. but it’s like getting al capone on tax evasion. there is much bigger crime here and what looks to be a web of lies, cover ups, and crony payoffs to keep everyone on side.
if we let that become “old news” it’s going to be in the news again before long.
guys like this don’t stop. then need to BE stopped. they think “the work” is so important and engrossing that “the world” that might be affected is really not a consideration.
they land on their feet in a way that even cats envy.
here’s his partner at ecohealth excited about the new gig.
you can read the profile of all these folks HERE. these people are staggeringly dangerous and the projects they work on have been facui hobbyhorses for decades.
accountability is needed here. bigly.
if tony skates (or worse gets to keep his job) don’t come crying to me when this happens again.
trusting serial arsonist to watch the woodpile while you’re away always only ends one way and the same can be said about letting the fox commission generate the report about the henhouse murders. (currently underway)
don’t let that happen.
trading a full accounting of what happened in wuhan (and elsewhere) for a fauci defenestration over other matters is not how you want this story to end…
