Fear spreads faster than disease.
Beyond stating the obvious, these words were used by Dr. Ashish Jha to emphasize the takeaways from a January 2017 keynote presentation by Dr. Anthony Fauci -- the very same presentation wherein Fauci stated he was "extraordinarily confident" that the incoming Trump administration would suffer from a major pandemic "in the next few years." These were strangely prescient words, given that the COVID-19 pandemic began exactly three years later.
The full 45 minute presentation lays out exactly how Fauci, et al, worked to make viruses more transmissible, so that they could jump from animals to humans, using funding from military defense spending (BARDA) and the Bush era PEPFAR program. It was no surprise that Fauci had the highest praises for these lucrative arrangements, which allowed them to preemptively develop experimental vaccines and proactively establish the infrastructure needed for global surveillance of infectious disease.
He gave the aspiring students gathered for the Georgetown Global Health Initiative a crash course in epidemiology, outlining how the Obama administration had dealt with "more than their fair share" of pandemics. After discussing how nature was the "greatest bio terrorist," he zipped through lessons he and his cohorts had learned from H1N1, MERS, Chikungunya, Ebola, Zika, Bird Flu (H5N1), and the "silent pandemic" of AMR, or anti-microbial resistance. Dr. Fauci said that this series of pandemics were an "epidemiologist's delight" and, notably, how they "put the same pattern in play" for each of these global pandemics.
How many Americans were aware that all of this was happening? Not many, though there was some fuss in Congress when the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) discovered that the NIH had conducted research and laboratory experiments "that resulted in viruses with enhanced transmissibility in mammals," ... including humans.
That was in 2011, and it stirred up controversy because for the first time ever, at least publicly, the government tried to put a lid on the research and censor the data. According to lead scientists at the time, “Censorship is considered the ultimate sin of original research. However, we also have an imperative to keep certain research out of the hands of individuals who could use it for nefarious purposes." It might be wise to ask: But what happens if the research was being done by nefarious people, for nefarious purposes?
Some may recall that when investigating the origins of COVID-19, Dr. Fauci sat before Congress and shamelessly lied about gain-of-function research, repeatedly denying it ever happened and stating that the NIH "has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research," especially not at secretive Chinese government laboratories like the one in Wuhan. Of course, all of this proved to be patently false, which was not a surprise, as Dr. Fauci has a long track record of being a serial liar.
In reality, the NIH, under Dr. Fauci's direction, had been collaborating with the EcoHealth Alliance (who has financial ties to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), which is a shady organization that, according to whistle blower Dr. Andrew G. Huff, ultimately funded and coordinated the development of COVID-19. In his whistle blower letter, dated February 8th, 2022, he stated:
"In late October 2021, I came forward as a material witness and whistle blower related to numerous unethical and criminal behaviors that took place at EcoHealth Alliance, the organization that established the relationship with the Wuhan Institute of Virology and funded the development of SARS-COV2, more commonly known as COVID-19."
Trying to track down the veracity of this information proved to be fascinating. Dr. Huff is on Twitter, where he has recently made claims of his computers being bugged and his house being surveilled by drones. Of course, the lefties on the platform are accusing him of being a paranoid schizophrenic, and they are doing everything possible to discredit him.
Looking to verify his claims as an expert who worked on several government projects, I did discover multiple research papers on the NIH.gov website, including one titled Biosurveillance: a systematic review of global infectious disease surveillance systems from 1900 to 2016, which had Huff's name on it. So, apparently, he is who he claims to be, though after digging deeper, it does appear like the history of Dr. Huff is suspiciously being scrubbed from the net.
I'm sure it's all just a rabbit hole, just another conspiracy, like Hillary Clinton buying Russian propaganda, or the Biden's dealings with Burisma, or... I'm sure you get the point.
Back to 2017, Dr. Fauci's inspiring speech, and the great take away by Dr. Jha -- that fear spreads faster than disease -- you may like to know that Dr. Jha was recently appointed the new Covid Czar by the Biden administration. Not only is he a dyed-in-the-wool globalist, he has also been a key player in the efforts to "decarbonize" healthcare, which exposes his stance as a radical environmentalist. He is the perfect person to lead us through upcoming pandemics as we march through this "exciting transition" to a more sustainable Future Earth.
Nobody really knows how this Great Reset will play out, but thanks to all the work of Dr. Fauci, et al, at this point the patterns should be predictable.
