Fox News host Steve Hilton on Sunday shared the latest shocking findings from his months-long investigation into the origins of the coronavirus, alleging that the virus links back to U.S. commissioned research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that was overseen by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The host of the “The Next Revolution” told his viewers that there is reason to believe that SARS Covid-2 — which is now widely believed to have leaked from the Wuhan Lab — is the “product of genetic experiments commissioned and funded by our own government.”
Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has been an influential advocate of a very controversial type of research called “Gain of Function” virus research.
The research “aims to take a virus and then manipulate its genetic code to make it stronger and more contagious. The virus would gain new functions, hence the name,” Hilton explained. “The thinking goes, if we could engineer the most deadly viruses ourselves in lab conditions, we could better prepare for our pandemic response.” …
Following a number of “bio-safety incidents” at federal research facilities, the Obama administration placed a moratorium on Gain of Function research, Hilton noted, but the moratorium was lifted in 2017.
Just before the 2014 ban, however, the Fauci-led NIAID funded the Gain of Function research at the Wuhan Lab, Hilton alleged, adding that NIAID continued to fund it for six more years, three of those during the ban. …
“They made new viruses — man-made — in the lab. They infected human cells with them in the lab. And they then showed that their man-made viruses could replicate as a functional virus,” Hilton explained.
Hilton pointed out that SARS Covid-2 is 96 percent identical to the bat coronavirus the researchers were working on in the Wuhan Lab.
The only difference between that virus and the pandemic virus is how contagious it is. The pandemic virus, as we know, can be passed human-to-human. The original virus could not. And that four percent genetic difference between them is in exactly the places where Gain of Function techniques would be used to make the virus more contagious.
So while we can blame the Chinese regime for allowing the virus to leak, and especially for the cover-up afterwards, the terrifying truth may be that our own government commissioned the experiments that led to the creation of the pandemic virus in the first place.
So scientists are making viruses more dangerous, because they can and because it seems interesting to them. But because it’s so dangerous, they lose permission to conduct such research in the West. But China still allows it, so the US scientists — with Fauci in charge — fund that same research in China. Then, whether by accident or by someone’s design, an enhanced virus escapes the lab. China then spreads it worldwide (by only allowing residents of Wuhan to flee from China, not to other parts of China). World death toll to date: 2.5 million.
Who benefits? China, and the upper class.
Surprised? The upper class media is covering up the story, and big tech is censoring it.
