Just over one year ago, a TOP SECRET “biodefense” research proposal called Project DEFUSE was leaked to the public by DRASTIC. The proposal was originally submitted to DARPA [the DEFENSE ADVANCED RESEARCH PROJECTS AGENCY] on behalf of EcoHealth Alliance in March 2018.
The proposed research would take some 180 previously unreported SARS-like coronaviruses, insert human specific furin cleavage sites into them, and then pass these genetically engineered viruses through Human Airway Epithelium cell cultures to test their pathogenicity to humans.
Experts have called this research proposal “a blueprint” for creating SARS-CoV-2 in a lab.
Principal investigators listed in the Project DEFUSE proposal were Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance, GOF-Meister Ralph Baric from the University of North Carolina, and the Bat Lady, Shi Zhengli, from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Peter Daszak and DARPA have denied Project DEFUSE was ever carried out.
On October 6th, we learned that one of the reviewers of that Project DEFUSE proposal reported that the research was already underway when the proposal was submitted to DARPA in March 2018. Today I review what we know about Project DEFUSE and how that research may provide the missing link in the search for the origin of COVID-19.
Where did Covid-19 come from? Did gain-of-function research cause the COVID-19 pandemic, and could it cause another? Was the vaccine rollout guided more by economics and market factors than equity and medical need? These questions are only scratching the surface. Today’s episode covers all this and more from the key findings and recommendations in that report.
Jeffrey Sachs, Chair of the Lancet COVID-19 Commission and charged with oversight of 11 different Task Forces investigating various aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, was interviewed on the DEFENDER Podcast and shared his remarkable experiences with one Task Force. Sachs does a scathing takedown of the junk science published in reputable scientific journals that has been used to support the false narrative that “the science shows COVID-19 was the result of a natural spillover.”
On August 3rd, 2022, the Senate Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Spending Oversight held a hearing to discuss the threat of gain-of-function research and the origin of COVID-19.
Doctors Richard Ebright, Steven Quay, and Kevin Esvelt testified publicly before the committee. In their collective testimony, we finally hear the inconvenient truth about dangerous gain of function research and the mountain of evidence supporting a possible lab origin of COVID-19.
These experts candidly discuss what Doctors Fauci and Collins have never publicly said out loud. The only conspiracy that has been perpetrated against the American people is the coverup of what these scientists have been trying to tell the world for the past two and a half years.
At the Coronavirus Task Force Press Conference on April 17th, 2020, Dr. Fauci establishes a false narrative that “the science” supports one credible scientific hypothesis for the origin of the COVID-19 Pandemic- a natural zoonosis. This episode examines the “nightmare of circumstantial evidence” that Dr. Fauci had to ignore, conceal, and eliminate from his public orations to establish the false narrative and the myriad reasons why, if proven correct, the lab leak hypothesis would be an epic disaster for Drs. Fauci, Collins, and gain-of-functionologists. We also examine the abundant evidence of the behind-the-scenes role of NIH Director Francis Collins in pushing the false narrative, and his efforts to disparage and discredit those discussing the evidence pointing to a possible lab leak by labelling them as conspiracy theorists.
On January 31, 2020, the day after the WHO declared the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, Big Science in the US and the UK learned an inconvenient truth. An international group of virologists that had been studying the genetic sequence of SARS Coronavirus-2 unanimously agreed that the 2019 novel coronavirus genome was “inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory” and contained unusual features that indicated it might have been engineered in a lab.
This shocking revelation prompted Dr. Anthony Fauci to call a secret meeting attended by an international list of “Who’s who” in Big Science, gain-of-function research, and virology to discuss the possible non-natural origin of COVID-19.
Today’s episode examines the events surrounding that remarkable February 1st, 2020, meeting and the expressed opinions of the experts who attended it. From their unredacted emails, only recently made public, we discover that the expert’s opinions on the origin of COVID-19 expressed privately at the February 1st meeting were shockingly inconsistent with what many of these same scientists were saying publicly in the days and weeks following.
That meeting marked the beginning of a concerted effort by Big Science and a cabal of scientists to conceal the inconvenient truth and launch a coordinated disinformation campaign to control the narrative on the origin of COVID-19.
Why is it important to study the origin of the pandemic of the century? Knowing how a pandemic started, is the key to preventing the next one. Unless we learn from history, we’re destined to repeat it.
