In January of this year, the Wall Street Journal reported that a team of World Health Organization (WHO) researchers had arrived in China but would not investigate the possibility that the coronavirus originated in a lab. One of the researchers has been called out by the National Pulse for being compromised by his political leanings to the left. Could favoritism toward China keep the researchers from digging deeper into the origins of the coronavirus in China?
The National Pulse reports that World Health Organization researcher Peter Daszak donated 71 times to Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign. The donations to Biden all happened over a five-month period. The donations called into question the WHO and the media’s depiction of Daszak as a neutral investigator into the origins of the virus that caused the deaths of millions around the world. Is this researcher protecting China or just anti-Trump? Either way, this is dangerous censorship of information that the world should know the answer to ASAP.
Even worse, Daszak made several donations to an anti-Trump PAC called Really American. According to Open Secrets, the PAC spent nearly one million dollars campaigning against President Trump’s reelection. Most of the donations to the PAC came from a Canadian company that donated 27 times with over 200K.
The National Pulse reports that Really American repeatedly criticized President Trump’s handling of the pandemic to damage him politically. They went so far as to label the virus the “Trump Virus” and said, “we #BlameTrump AND his enablers in the Senate for the worst pandemic response in the world.” The group even suggested that President Trump “doesn’t care” about deaths due to the coronavirus.
According to Taiwan News, a video taken just days before the start of the coronavirus pandemic on December 9, 2020 shows the researcher discussing the testing of modified coronaviruses on human cells and humanized mice in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), just weeks before the first cases of COVID-19 were announced in the city of Wuhan itself.
Daszak speaks about the coronavirus at the 29:52 point:
Interviewer: “So you say these are diverse coronaviruses and you can’t vaccinate against them and no anti-virals, so what do we do?”
Peter Daszak: “Well, coronaviruses are pretty good… you can manipulate them in the lab pretty easy, you know. Spike protein drives a lot what happens in a coronavirus. Zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, you can build a protein, and we work with Ralph Baric at UNC, a genius, insert into the backbone of another virus, and do some work in the lab, and you can get more predictive when you find a sequence…”
President of EcoHealth Alliance Peter Daszak spoke about his work at the nonprofit to protect the world from the emergence of new diseases and predict pandemics. Since 2014, Daszak’s organization has received millions of dollars of funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). It has funneled to the Wuhan Lab to research bat coronaviruses.
Since the airing of this video, the NIH has cut funding to Daszak.
