Bombshell Reveals Fauci Knew COVID-19 Risks in 2018

It's come to light that many officials, including Fauci, were privy as far back as 2018 to China engineering viruses similar to COVID-19.

The depth of the COVID cover-up is more like a chasm, revealing a staggering level of governmental malfeasance that borders on dystopian. Digging into the mire, it’s come to light that officials across a swath of 15 federal agencies, including Anthony Fauci, were privy as far back as 2018 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s Frankenstein-like ambitions to engineer a coronavirus eerily reminiscent of COVID-19. This bombshell revelation exposes not just a failure of transparency but a systemic rot within our institutions, where the mantra seems to be secrecy over safety, obscurity over openness.

A full 15 agencies sat on knowledge that could have potentially prevented the global upheaval unleashed by COVID-19, yet chose silence. The Wuhan lab’s proposal to splice a furin cleavage site into a coronavirus—creating a nightmare virus—was not Hollywood fiction but a funded proposal reviewed by agencies tasked with safeguarding public health. Yet, the silence was deafening, the inaction criminal.

Amid this conspiracy of silence stood Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose NIAID not only knew of these plans but was set to play a part in them. The fact that Fauci, alongside other researchers, could feign surprise as the pandemic ravaged the globe, is a testament to the moral bankruptcy at the heart of our public health bureaucracy. These are not guardians of our well-being but gatekeepers of a status quo that values research dollars over human lives.

And what of the whistleblowers, the lone voices in the wilderness like Lt. Col. Joseph Murphy, who dared to pierce the veil of secrecy? They’re the true patriots, the ones who remind us that integrity often comes at a great personal cost. Yet, for every Murphy, there are countless others within the government who knew, who could have spoken up but chose the coward’s path of silence.

As we pick up the pieces from the wreckage wrought by COVID-19, the imperative for accountability has never been clearer. Those who knew and did nothing, those who actively obscured the origins of this pandemic, must be held accountable. Not just for retribution, but to ensure that such a calamity—born not just from a virus but from the arrogance and negligence of those who knew better—never happens again.

Congress must step up, not with the usual performative hearings that lead nowhere, but with concrete actions to rein in rogue science and enforce a regime of transparency and oversight. If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that when it comes to public health, the stakes are too high for anything less than absolute candor and accountability. Shame on those who chose to protect their interests over the lives of millions. Their legacy is one of betrayal, and it must not be forgotten.
