Dr. Fauci Admits NIAID Won’t Stop Funding Chinese Research with U.S. Tax Dollars


(Washington, D.C., June 16, 2022) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), about his agency’s support for Chinese Communist Party research during today’s Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee hearing. When Senator Marshall asked Dr. Fauci if he would stop using U.S. taxpayer dollars to fund projects in China – such as EcoHealth Alliance’s activities at the Wuhan Institute of Virology – Dr. Fauci admitted his agency does not have any plans to do so.


While you may click HERE or on the image below to watch Senator Marshall’s full exchange with Dr. Fauci, Senator Marshall prefaced his questioning by saying, in part,


“The NIH is still funding research in China, at least $8 million since 2020. In the Intelligence Community’s 2022 Annual Threat Assessment, the Chinese Communist Party is presented as one of the top threats to the United States, along with Russia, Iran, Syria, and North Korea. To my knowledge, only China is receiving U.S. research dollars. The CCP controls their scientists and controls the release of research results they work on. However, NIH grants’ policies require grantees to maintain supporting research records, which they cannot do when those records are under the control of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Biden to unveil plan for next pandemic while seeking $88 billion in funds


The Biden administration is preparing a new defense strategy against pandemics and other biological threats that applies lessons from COVID-19 and puts the White House at the center of any future US response.


Research suggests there’s a 50-50 chance of another COVID-like pandemic — or one that is more deadly — over the next 25 years, according to a senior administration official who spoke under the condition of anonymity as the strategy isn’t yet public, and the administration’s plan is the result of more than a year of work by U.S. national security and public health experts to improve the nation’s framework for preparedness, response and recovery.


As soon as this month, the administration is expected to release a National Biodefense Strategy that will outline its approach to facing biological threats to humans, animals, environments and crops, according to people familiar with the matter. The plan, along with $88.2 billion in funding the president is seeking, would shift how the government handles pandemic preparedness by more clearly describing responsibilities, goals and deadlines — an attempt to avoid the confusion and agency infighting that plagued the U.S. pandemic response.


“The bottom line is that we know what it takes to prevent and essentially take outbreaks off the table as a threat to society,” said Andrew Hebbeler, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s principal assistant director for health and life science, who has been involved in developing the strategy. “This is probably the most focused plan to date that aims to do that.”


But people familiar with the new strategy have concerns that the lengthy, jargon-filled document won’t strengthen U.S. biodefense unless the government invests tens of billions of dollars to back its ideas.


The new National Biodefense Strategy builds on Biden’s previously released American Pandemic Preparedness Plan and his request in the 2023 budget for $88.2 billion in mandatory funding for biodefense purposes, which, if approved by Congress, would be made available over five years. The ideas communicated in those documents will be the backbone of the forthcoming report, according to the people.


From Bill Clinton to Joe Biden, the five most recent U.S. presidents have all weighed in on how to prepare for health crises caused by infectious disease and biowarfare. Interest surged during the George W. Bush administration, when the Sept. 11 attacks were closely followed by potentially deadly anthrax sent through the mail to public figures, leading to a focus on potential threats such as smallpox and investment in public health efforts.
