Government Wants to Dictate Truth Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
Misinformation is much more destructive when it emanates from a monopolistic ´Ministry of
Truth,´Hannah Cox, content manager for Foundation for Economic Education, writes in a July
25, 2023, article.1
[Anthony] Fauci can´t get his own facts straight, yet the government wants to decide what´s
´misinformation´ on social media, she adds, pointing to National Institute of Allergy and
Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director Fauci´s testimony during a recent Congressional committee hearing in
which Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., questioned him about his funding of gain-of-function research on
coronaviruses. Cox writes:2
"In his opening statement, Paul referenced an academic paper3 that further calls into question the
origins of the COVID-19 variant that upended the world.
´We hypothesize that the direct progenitor of SARS-CoV may have originated after sequential
recombination events between the precursors of these SARSr-CoVs,´ stated the numerous scientists and
doctors who authored the research.
The data is the latest in a long line of evidence that has emerged indicating the viability of the
theory that the disease not only came from a lab, but that the NIH actually funded the laboratory and
research that may have produced it.
But in a May hearing, when originally pressed on it by Dr. Paul, Fauci denied that his agency funded
gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Those statements were brought into doubt. The NIH did fund research at WIV that analyzed bat specimens
collected from caves in China to study their potential for infecting humans. The grant was made in a
roundabout way through a nonprofit called EcoHealth.”
When pressed, Fauci insisted he has never lied before Congress, and would not retract his May 11, 2023,
statement in which he claimed the NIH has "never funded gain-of-function research." According to
Fauci, the PLOS Pathogens paper4 Paul introduced as evidence has been "judged by qualified staff, up and down the
chain, as not being gain-of-function."
"It appears that instead of arguing the actual data, Fauci is now resorting to semantics around
the definition of ‘gain-of-function,´" Cox writes,5“but even to a scientific layman it is becoming increasingly
clear that Fauci misled the American public for some time on this matter. He knew he authorized the funding
and was not forthcoming on that fact — even when asked by a sitting Senator.”
Paul Highlights Verbatim Admission
Paul appears none too impressed with the semantics defense and has publicly called Fauci out as a liar. In a
July 20, 2023, tweet, Paul said,6Yes, Dr. Fauci´s NIH did fund the Wuhan Virology Lab. Here´s the
verbatim admission from their chief scientist Dr. Shi Zhengli.
In a follow-up tweet on that same day, Paul stated:7
"MIT biologist Kevin Esvelt reviewed this paper that was published with financial
assistance from Dr. Fauci´s NIH/NIAID and concluded ‘certain techniques that the researchers used
seemed to meet the definition of gain-of-function.´"
July 20, 2023, Paul went on the Hannity program,8 announcing he "will be sending a letter to Department of Justice asking for a
criminal referral because he [Fauci] has lied to Congress," a felony punishable by up to five years in
prison, adding "We have scientists that were lined up by the dozens to say that the research he was
funding was gain-of-function." A month earlier, May 12, 2023, Paul made the same argument, telling Fox
"What Dr. Fauci said yesterday was verifiably false. He said no NIH money went to the Wuhan
Institute for gain of function. Well, the main doctor there, the one they call … the bat woman ... wrote a
paper that MIT scientists have looked at that they said was gain of function — meaning juicing up these
viruses to make them very potent and infect humans.
She wrote this paper and, in the paper, acknowledged her funding came from Dr. Fauci´s group,
the NIAID, which is part of NIH. So, he is verifiably telling you something that is not true. In the grant
application ... it says it is for gain of function ... So, Dr. Fauci came to Congress yesterday and
WIV Deleted US Research Partners from Website
Before March 2021, NIAID collaboration and funding of research at the WIV could easily be verified simply by
visiting the WIV´s website where it listed its research partners. However, shortly after Fauci testified
in a Senate hearing in March 2021,10 the WIV suddenly deleted mentions of its collaboration with the NIAID/NIH and
several other American research partners.
As of March 21, 2023, the lab´s website listed the following U.S.-based research partners: University
of Alabama, University of North Texas, EcoHealth Alliance, Harvard University, the National Institutes of
Health (NIH), the United States, and the National Wildlife Federation.11
The next day, only two remained: EcoHealth Alliance and the University of Alabama.12 At the same time, the WIV also
deleted studies with hallmark descriptions of gain-of-function research on the SARS virus.13
According to investigative journalist Ben Swann,14 the NIH/NIAID has funded gain-of-function research to the tune of at
least $41.7 million. Up until 2014, this research was conducted by Dr. Ralph Baric at the University of
North Carolina (UNC). In 2014, the U.S. government issued a moratorium on federal gain-of-function research
funding due to safety, ethical and moral concerns raised within the scientific community.
At that point, NIAID funding for this kind of research started being funneled through the EcoHealth Alliance
to the WIV. Swann reviews documents he believes prove that Fauci lied to Congress, including a paper15 titled “SARS-Like WIV1-CoV Poised for
Human Emergence,” submitted to PNAS in 2015 and subsequently published in 2016. In this paper, the authors
“Overall, the results from these studies highlight the utility of a platform that leverages
metagenomics findings and reverse genetics to identify prepandemic threats.
For SARS-like WIV1-CoV, the data can inform surveillance programs, improve diagnostic reagents, and
facilitate effective treatments to mitigate future emergence events. However, building new and chimeric
reagents must be carefully weighed against potential gain-of-function (GoF) concerns.”
At the end of that paper, the authors thank "Dr. Zhengli-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of
Virology for access to bat CoV sequences and plasmid of WIV1-CoV spike protein." They also specify that
the research was supported by the NIAID under the grant awards U19AI109761 and U19AI107810, which together
total $41.7 million.
Grant Letter Dispels Semantics Defense
A letter16,17 from the Department of Health and
Human Services (DHHS) to the director of proposals at UNC Chapel Hill, discussing grant U19AI107810, also puts
a kink in Fauci´s attempt to change the definition of gain-of-function, and stands in direct challenge to
his claim that the NIAID has never funded gain-of-function research, and that Baric´s research never
involved gain-of-function. The October 21, 2014, letter states, in part:
“NIAID has determined that the above referenced grant may include Gain of Function (GoF) research that
is subject to the recently-announced U.S. Government funding pause …
The following specific aims appear to involve research covered under the pause: Project 1: Role of
Uncharacterized Genes in High Pathogenic Human Coronavirus Infect — Ralph S. Baric, Ph.D. — Project
Leader. Specific Aim 1. Novel Functions in virus replication in vitro. Specific Aim 3. Novel functions in
virus pathogenesis in vivo.”
‘Fauci Found It Appropriate to Lie’
This would certainly not be the first time Fauci has been caught giving the American people false
information, Cox writes.18From the very beginning of the crisis, Fauci found it appropriate to lie
to the people and control valuable information around the pandemic.
She goes on to highlight Fauci´s ever-changing opinion about mask wearing. Scientific evidence shows
face masks do not prevent viral illnesses.19 This includes COVID-19-specific research20,21 from Denmark, which found that mask wearing may either reduce your risk of
SARS-CoV-2 infection by as much as 46%, or increase your risk by 23%. Either way, the vast majority — 97.9% of
those who didn´t wear masks, and 98.2% of those who did — remained infection free.
Among mask wearers, 1.8% ended up testing positive for SARS-CoV-2, compared to 2.1% among controls. When
they removed those who did not adhere to the recommendations for use, the results remained the same — 1.8%,
which suggests adherence makes no difference. Among those who reported wearing their face mask “exactly as
instructed,” 2% tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 compared to 2.1% of the controls.
Back in March 2020, Fauci was on the right track, publicly stating that masks cannot prevent viral
infection. The video above features one such appearance. At the time, Fauci stated22 that "people should not be
walking around with masks" because "it´s not providing the perfect protection that people think
that it is." Only symptomatic individuals and health care workers were urged to wear them.
Fauci even pointed out that mask wearing has "unintended consequences" as "people keep
fiddling with their mask and they keep touching their face," which may actually increase the risk of
contracting and/or spreading the virus.
In February 2020, Surgeon General Jerome Adams also sent out a tweet urging Americans to stop buying
masks, saying they are "NOT effective."23 (He has since deleted that tweet.) Adams also warned that if worn or handled
improperly, face masks can increase your risk of infection.24
Fauci Admits Issuing Intentional Misinformation
By July 2020, Fauci admitted his initial dismissal of face masks was an intentional fib, as there was a
shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) at the time and he wanted to ensure there would be enough for
frontline workers.25 “If we
listen to Fauci´s account, he essentially believed it was alright to prioritize some lives over others
and lie to people in the process,” Cox writes.26
This is a classic illustration of the use of what Plato calls the Nobel Lie. It is fine to lie as long as it
is for the greater good. Fast-forward a few weeks, and by the end of July 2020, Fauci suggested adding goggles
and full face shields, in addition to a mask, ostensibly because the mucous membranes of your eyes could
potentially serve as entryways for viruses as well.27
Interestingly enough, a March 31, 2020, report28 in JAMA Ophthalmology found SARS-CoV-2-positive conjunctival specimens (i.e.,
specimens taken from the eye) in just 5.2% of confirmed COVID-19 patients (two out of 28). What´s more,
contamination of the eyes is likely primarily the result of touching your eyes with contaminated fingers, and
if you wear goggles or a face shield, you may be more prone to touch your eyes to rub away sweat, condensation
and/or scratch an itch.
Around December 2020, recommendations for double-masking emerged,29 gaining momentum through extensive media coverage as we moved
into the first weeks of 2021,30 at which time Fauci agreed that wearing two masks instead of just one was
"common sense" as it would likely provide greater protection.31
By early May 2021, Fauci introduced the suggestion that we might also start wearing face masks during
influenza season after the COVID-19 pandemic recedes “to help avoid spreading or contracting respiratory
illnesses like the flu." Mid-July 2021, Fauci also insisted parents should continue to mask children aged
2 and older, saying:32
"Unvaccinated children of a certain age greater than 2 years old should be wearing masks. No
doubt about that. That´s the way to protect them from getting infected, because if they do, they can
then spread the infection to someone else."
No new scientific evidence to support masking against respiratory viruses has been presented, however. Cox
also points out that Fauci recommended nationwide school closures even though published science showed children
are largely immune33,34 to SARS-CoV-2 infection and are not significant vectors for spread.35 More recent research36 shows children, when infected, also
have a survival rate of 99.995%.
Government Nominates Itself as Ministry of Truth
“To add insult to injury, the government has nominated itself as the sole arbiter of truth when it comes to
information on the coronavirus,” Cox writes, adding:37
"The Biden Administration has claimed misinformation on social media platforms is ´killing
people´ and has openly been pressuring Facebook to remove posts that do not align with their narrative
…This is concerning for multiple reasons.
First and foremost, it is a violation of free speech and the free market for the government to tell
any private business how to run its operations. Plain and simple.
Additionally, the government has no business being in a position of determining what the truth is or
is not. They´ve been caught lying more times than we can count and are likely to continue, given how
misleading the public often serves to increase their own power.
The government´s track record of inaccuracy by no means begins with COVID, but has certainly
grown with it. This is the last entity we should trust with a monopoly over information.
Fauci´s disastrous track record of misinformation, laid bare throughout his many rounds with
Rand Paul, shows why the government has no business trying to be a monolithic source and arbiter of
Senator Introduces Bill to Force Online Censorship
July 22, 2023, The Wall Street Journal38 reported Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., has introduced a bill "that would
strip online platforms such as Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. of their liability protections if their
technologies spread misinformation related to public-health emergencies, such as the Covid-19
Section 230 protects internet platforms from lawsuits arising from content generated by users and third
parties. Klobuchar´s bill would create an exception to this law, the Health and Human Services department
(HHS) would be responsible for dictating what health information is true and what is misinformation.
Internet platforms would then be required to censor accordingly or face potential litigation. Time will tell
if this bill will pass and stand up to legal scrutiny.
As noted by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in an April 5, 2023, ruling39 in which he weighed in on the ability
of social media giants to control free speech, "The government cannot accomplish through threats of
adverse government action what the Constitution prohibits it from doing directly."
After Censorship, Will Social Credit System Be Far Behind?
If government censorship becomes law, will a social credit system based on government narrative adherence be
far behind? "We need to act now to block Britain´s social credit system," columnist Ross
Clark writes in a July 24, 2023, Spectator article.40
While Clark, just 12 days earlier, had estimated it might take two to five years for a British COVID
vaccination passport scheme to transition into a full-blown social credit system like that of China, in
reality, it´s already being rolled out.
“This morning it was reported that the government is planning to introduce a health app in January
which will monitor our shopping, our exercise levels, or intake of fruit and vegetables — and reward us with
virtue points which we can exchange for discounts, free tickets … and other goodies,” Clark
Considering the whole world is acting in lockstep — as described and recommended in the Rockefeller
Foundation´s 2023 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development"
report42 — it´s
probably only a matter of time before the same kind of social credit score "carrot" gets dangled in
front of our faces here in the United States.
First Comes the Carrot, Then the Stick
Looking back, it´s easy to see how the carrot and the stick have been intermittently used to herd the
population toward a desired goal. While getting everyone injected with SARS-CoV-2 spike producing mRNA is
clearly one goal, it´s not the only one.
As indicated by Clark, a social credit system that grants outside agencies complete control over your life
is also being introduced, one small step at a time. And, like with the COVID jabs, carrots to get people to
voluntarily embrace this social credit system are deployed first. The stick will come out later, as it has with
the COVID shots.
ABC News panelist Margaret Hoover recently told George Stephanopoulos she thinks government
ought to make life "almost impossible" for people who reject the COVID shot.43
To that end, she suggests making COVID injectables a requirement for government-provided health and
financial services, such as VA treatment, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security payments, "because … we
are going to have to take care of you on the back end."
PayPal to Block Certain Financial Transactions
Those relying on Social Security aren´t the only ones who might begin to feel the sting of the stick.
More than 150 health care workers were recently fired from Houston Methodist for refusing the experimental
COVID jab,44 and many other
professions face the same "jab or job" dilemma.
PayPal is also using the stick against the self-employed and small businesses that aren´t toeing the
desired line. It recently partnered with the Anti-Defamation League´s Center on Extremism to
investigate how extremist and hate movements in the United States take advantage of financial platforms to fund
their criminal activities, Reuters reported, July 26, 2023,45 with the aim of “disrupting” such transactions.
The headline, PayPal to Research Transactions That Fund Hate Groups, Extremists, had originally
included the word Blocking. Perhaps announcing that PayPal will actually block the financial
transactions of those suspected of harboring anti-government sentiments was too great a truth bomb for the
average Reuters audience?
Targeted entities include individuals and companies suspected of supporting white supremacy and
anti-government narratives, and anyone spreading information and/or profiting from antisemitism, islamophobia,
racism, anti-immigrant, anti-Black, anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian bigotry.
The information collected will be shared with other financial institutions, law enforcement and
policymakers. It doesn´t take a genius to deduce where this might end up, considering intelligence
agencies are already deploying sophisticated cyberwarfare tools against civilians.46,47,48 As reported by independent
investigative journalist Whitney Webb in an article for Unlimited Hangout:49
British and American state intelligence agencies are ´weaponizing truth´ … in a
recently announced ´cyber war´ to be commanded by AI-powered arbiters of truth against
information sources that challenge official narratives.
While it can cause discomfort, the best defense is a peaceful offense. If you don´t like where things
are headed, peaceful disobedience is likely to be the most effective way to push back, be it against mask
mandates, forced vaccinations, a two-tier society of vaccinated/unvaccinated with unequal rights and
privileges, mandatory vaccine passports, a social credit system, or all of the above.
Or as Abraham Lincoln said, We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts,
not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
Or Robert Adams, There is only one decision you need to make: You are either working at your Freedom
or you are accepting your bondage.
p.s., as aside, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now so absorbed in defending the indefensible that he can best serve
the country by stepping down.
Perhaps its time for Dr. Fauci to retire50
