During a hearing on the Chinese coronavirus on Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) quizzed Dr. Anthony Fauci about his previous assertion that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) had never sponsored gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“Dr. Fauci, as you are aware it is a crime to lie to Congress. And yet, gain-of-function research was done entirely in the Wuhan Institute … and was funded by the NIH,” Paul said, citing Wuhan Virology paper entitled, ‘Discovery of a Rich Gene Pool of Bat SARS-Related Coronaviruses.’

“In this paper … she credits the NIH and lists the actual number of the grant that she was given by the NIH,” Paul said. “In this paper, she took two bat coronavirus genes, spiked genes, and combined them with a SARS-related backbone to create new viruses that are not found in nature.”

Paul challenged Fauci’s truthfulness during a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions hearing. He brought up Fauci’s testimony of 11 May, during which the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director stated that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Fauci reacted angrily, and refused to withdraw his prior comments, yelling at the Kentucky senator, "You don't know what you're talking about."

Paul also quoted Dr. Richard H. Ebright, a Rutgers molecular scientist, who described the Wuhan research as matching the kind of research prohibited in the U.S. under gain--of-function ban. According to Ebright, the experiments were the “definition of gain of function research done entirely in Wuhan for which there was supposed to be a federal pause.”
“Senator Paul, I have never lied before the Congress and I do not retract that statement,” Fauci asserted. “This paper that you were referring to was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain 0f function.”

“You take an animal virus and you increase this transmissibility to humans, you’re saying that’s not gain of function?” Paul pressed.

“Yeah that is correct, and Senator Paul, you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly. And I want to say that officially. You do not know what you are talking about,” Fauci was plainly thrown off and combative by the line of questioning.

Paul has previously forced the COVID czar to equivocate on whether he ruled out the possibility that the virus originated from the Wuhan lab, as opposed to emanating from a natural occurrence.

    History will show the little Doctor will be responsible for more human death and misery than Hitler or Stalin and Japans Tojo.

    I’ve experienced this. When you corner an egocentric liar who’s use to getting things their way, they counter attack by calling you a liar, raising their voice, flailing their arms and pointing their fingers. Kudos to Paul for maintaining his composure.

    Anyone who has the ability to know when they are being lied to or used can tell that Fauci “the Jaw” is a lying, criminal scumbag. He needs to be charged, tried, and executed for treason, but of course the Jerkoff Joe administration cannot do this lest they admit that the entire Crowbait Fever ploy is a total scam. Someone should post this link on the White-Privilege-House website….https://odysee.com/@FwapUK:1/A-manufactured-illusion.-Dr-David-Martin-with-Reiner-Fuellmich-9_7_21_-720p:5

    Doctors Raise Awareness on Ivermectin Treatment for COVID-19
    By Meiling Lee July 24, 2021 Updated: July 24, 2021

    In an effort to help end the pandemic, an international coalition of medical experts is holding worldwide events Saturday to raise awareness about the effectiveness of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19.

    Organizers of the World Ivermectin Day say doctors and supporters of the inexpensive FDA-approved drug will host free online and public events in over a dozen countries.

    Two nonprofits—Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance and the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) group—who have been campaigning for the off-label use of ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19 say the event’s focus is to let more people know that the antiparasitic drug can treat COVID-19, possibly end the pandemic, and help eliminate fear of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

    “We have an incredibly positive and uplifting message to share: ivermectin treats and prevents COVID and it is the key to unlocking the never-ending cycle of pandemic peaks and personal restrictions and will help restart economies,” Dr. Tess Lawrie, cofounder of the BIRD group said in a press release.

    Lawrie is also a co-author of a peer-reviewed meta-analysis study published in the American Journal of Therapeutics that found ivermectin to be effective against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus. Lawrie and her team concluded with a moderate level of confidence that ivermectin reduced the risk of death by an average of 62 percent, at a 95 percent confidence interval of 0.19-0.73, especially when prescribed early.
