(Liberty Bell) – A United States grant proposal reveals that American and Chinese researchers working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were seeking funding for a very risky plan to make coronavirus particles transmissible to human beings and then release them into the bat population.
Why in the world would these people want to do something like this? This, ladies and gentlemen, is the real life application of the story of the mad scientist. It’s no longer a horror story trope. It’s legitimately happening in the real world.
A report from WND goes on to say that a proposal from 2018, reported Wednesday by the Telegraph of London, confirms that researchers who were funded by the U.S. government were doing very dangerous gain-of-function research, going so far as to engineer SARS-CoV-2 viruses that might have escaped from the lab and then sparked the global pandemic we’ve been living through since the beginning of 2020.
“The newest revelation is that the researchers planned to release enhanced, skin-penetrating airborne coronavirus nanoparticles and aerosols containing ‘novel chimeric spike proteins’ into Chinese bat populations in Yunnan, China, to inoculate the animals against diseases that could ‘spill over’ to humans,” the report said.
“The researchers also hoped to introduce ‘human-specific cleavage sites’ to bat coronaviruses that would make it easier for the virus to enter human cells, according to the request for $14 million in funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, DARPA,” WND continued in their report.
The bid was actually submitted by British zoologist Peter Daszak (pictured here) of EcoHealth Alliance. Daszak’s work concerning bat coronaviruses was actually being funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The zoologist’s team consisted of Dr. Shi Zhengli, who we all know as “bat woman.”
“The 2018 bid was rejected by DARPA, but numerous grant proposals to Fauci’s NIAID for gain-of-function research were accepted, and the research was carried out,” the report said, adding, “The Telegraph reported the papers were confirmed as genuine by a former member of the Trump administration. They were released by DRASTIC, the web-based team of scientists investigating the origins of COVID-19.”
Last Friday, the British journal The Lancet published a letter that was from 16 scientists who are all calling for the lab-leak theory to be reexamined.
The scientists stated in the letter that The Lancet’s publishing of a letter last year, which was organized by Daszak disregarding the lab-leak theory as nothing more than a “conspiracy” had a “silencing effect on the wider scientific debate, including among science journalists.”
“A World Health Organization COVID-19 researcher told the Telegraph it was alarming that the proposal shows Daszak’s team sought to enhance the more deadly disease of Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS,” the report continued.
“The scary part is they were making infectious chimeric MERS viruses,” the source then went on to tell the paper, noting that the MERS viruses have a fatality rate of more than 30%.
Right now, estimates of the fatality rate of COVID-19 continue to fluctuate, but it hovers below 1 percent, sticking somewhere around .02 percent.
“If one of their receptor replacements made MERS spread similarly, while maintaining its lethality,” the source went on to say, adding, “this pandemic would be nearly apocalyptic.”
DRASTIC then went on to say in a statement that the theory stating the coronavirus was engineered by human hands is still plausible due the fact the grant proposal talks about the planned introduction of a cleavage site on the spike protein that would make it much easier for the protein to penetrate human cells.
DARPA then went on to explain that it turned down the request for funding because it was “clear that the proposed project led by Daszak could have put local communities at risk.” The agency then revealed they felt Daszak’s team had not properly taken into consideration the dangers of doing gain-of-function research.
“Angus Dalgleish, a professor of oncology at St Georges, University of London, told the Telegraph that Daszak’s research may have been carried out without the DARPA funding,” WND said in the report.
“This is clearly a gain of function, engineering the cleavage site and polishing the new viruses to enhance human cell infectibility in more than one cell line,” he went on to say.
“A member of the British House of Lords who has called for investigation of the origin of the pandemic, Matt Ridley, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that for more than a year he has ‘tried repeatedly to ask questions of Peter Daszak with no response,'” the report continued.
“Now it turns out he had authored this vital piece of information about virus work in Wuhan but refused to share it with the world. I am furious. So should the world be,” Ridley, who is a science writer, went on to say.
For more than a year I tried repeatedly to ask questions of @peterdaszak with no response.
Now it turns out he had authored this vital piece of information about virus work in Wuhan but refused to share it with the world.

When DARPA, who has created such things as cyborg dogs, implantable microchips, and drone killing machines, says something is crazy and too dangerous, folks, you better pay attention.
If this organization said the gain-of-function research was insane, then that’s what it was.
Folks, those responsible for this mess need to be held accountable for their actions. And that means there must be some kind of thorough investigation into these matters. Now.
