Why are the origins of Covid being covered up?

The smoking gun.

“Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), Ranking Member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, sent letters to several agencies requesting additional information on their knowledge and involvement regarding the DEFUSE project, a 2018 grant proposal led by EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The DEFUSE project was submitted to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under the PREventing Emerging Pathogenic Threats (PREEMPT) program and proposed to insert a furin cleavage site into a coronavirus to create a novel chimeric virus that would have been shockingly similar to the COVID-19 virus. Recently, Dr. Paul obtained documents indicating at least fifteen agencies participated in a DARPA hosted “PREEMPT Proposers Day” where potential applicants presented proposals to agency representatives.

During this event Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance pitched the DEFUSE project which sought federal funds to “manipulate known viruses with spike proteins of novel viral strains.” The letter also outlines that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Rocky Laboratory was listed as a partner in the DEFUSE proposal alongside the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“At least 15 federal agencies knew from the beginning of the pandemic that EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virology were seeking federal funding in 2018 to create a virus genetically very similar if not identical to COVID-19,” said Ranking Member Paul. “Disturbingly, not one of these 15 agencies spoke up to warn us that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had been pitching this research.””

If the Defuse project isn’t the smoking gun as to the origins of the Coronavirus then I don’t know what is.

The chances of a random coronavirus breaking out with a furin cleavage site that had never existed before, a year after gain of function research set about developing just that is too good to be true.

Sydney University has a history of working with the CIA. Is Edward Holmes working with Intelligence Agencies to cover up the origins of Covid? My money says he is.

Senator RENNICK: Professor, how are you?

Prof. Wesselingh: I’m very well, thank you.

Senator RENNICK: I just want to follow up on your remarks and also about the funding of Professor Edward Holmes. He was one of the people that Anthony Fauci first contacted when the virus broke out, back in January 2020. He actually contacted intelligence agencies in Australia, and he was part of an email trail that has been released through Congress. In his email to Kristian Andersen on the day of the release of the proximal origin that basically dismissed the lab leak, he wrote:

Sorry the last bit had to be done without you … pressure from on high.

So he was clearly pressured by someone within the Australian government, presumably intelligence agencies. But then there was another email. Professor Andersen, in discussions with this particular group, used a tool called Genius to compare the novel coronavirus and a pangolin sequence, and it spat out a disappointing result: ‘No significant similarity found.’ Indeed, Professor Edward Holmes shared another email where he was talking about a gene, RmYN02:

… I think that is … enormous … 99% of the lab escape idea from genomics was the cleavage site insertion …

In another email, he said:

I’m now very strongly in favour of a natural origin.

That’s just something to reflect on. But, when you said that it was a natural outbreak, were you aware that there was a diffused project that was funded by EcoHealth and Peter Daszak—who was the author of that particular paper about the proximal origin that was in the Lancet but has since been withdrawn—that basically funded research for SARS-like viruses carrying a furin cleavage site? So these guys were actually over at the Wuhan laboratory—and it was funded by Anthony Fauci and Peter Daszak—actually doing research into coronavirus and inserting a furin cleavage site. I’m happy to have your feedback there, Professor Kelly. Given that evidence, are you still convinced that it was actually a natural lab leak?

Prof. Kelly: The comment I made was that the international consensus—

Senator RENNICK: Sorry, not a lab leak—a natural outbreak.

Prof. Kelly: Right. The comment I made was that I believed that the international consensus of experts—virologists, infectious diseases physicians and others around the country and the world—was that the most likely scenario was that this was a natural occurrence from animals to humans, and I still absolutely believe that. I would again state that the overwhelming consensus of experts around the world is that that is the case.

Senator RENNICK: Well, that’s interesting, because these emails tend to suggest that there is pressure for a cover-up. I’ll quote another email where he said that he has forbidden his colleague from publishing anything pointing to a pandemic origin in Wuhan. As I said, this guy is basically being funded by you. He reports to intelligence agencies. He has also somehow infiltrated himself into the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and he was one of the first people contacted by Anthony Fauci. This is a bloke on the other side of the world, and Anthony Fauci decided to start emailing him. Don’t you think that you should investigate Professor Holmes next time before we start handing out millions of dollars to him? I think his behaviour warrants much greater scrutiny.

CHAIR: I’ll let the official respond. Without the documents in front of us, that’s quite difficult for me to follow as chair. I’m not sure if you’re in a position to table the documents you’re referring to.

Senator RENNICK: No problem.

CHAIR: Professor.

Prof. Kelly: The process that we undergo to give out grants is a process based on peer review. So Professor Holmes would have applied for a grant from the NHMRC. His application would have undergone peer review from experts in the area, it would have been scored and, if his score was above the line—and approximately 10 to 15 per cent of people will be above the line, so it’s very, very competitive—he would be awarded a grant from the NHMRC. We then have clear rules and regulations that apply to the administering institution that that person is a member of, and in this case it’s the University of Sydney. The University of Sydney will ensure the integrity, the ethics and the application of the laws of Australia to that research. If any of those are breached, it’s the University of Sydney that needs to be aware of that, and obviously they would then notify us and then we would remove the grant.

Senator RENNICK: Thank you. That’s all.
