This is one of my passions I feel very strongly about it. And i wanted to just do it. So the moms out there support a mom a business woman and entrepreneur at the same time. Because you can do it you can you. Can i appreciate that. Thank thank you but now that you mention it. American beauty bhai sierra dot com. And we do. We are selling out of some colors already. Which is great but also like hurry and get your order in All right so that was the news and white matters. That's all we have for you today. Let's get into the headlines of the day so dr anthony fetchy Who we you know. Great friend of the program. We all know in love here. never contradicts himself. Always on the up and up and always bases his recommendations on pure science and data and nothing else not political at all here. He actually is now facing calls to resign and really answer for a shocking report. This was published by intercept. Which is another media outlet about these so-called gain of function research that the national institute of health funded at the wuhan institute of raji now the intercept submitted. A foia requests right so freedom of information Act request and there was like nine hundred pages worth of documents and the intercept found in these documents. Evidence that the national institute of health issued a quote bat corona virus grant to a group called eko health alliance for three point one million dollars including five hundred ninety nine thousand that the wuhan institute veracity used in part to identify an altar bat corona viruses likely to infect humans so the material show that the they were two thousand fourteen and twenty thousand nine hundred. Nih grants to go health with subcontracts to deputy funded gain of function research as defined in federal policies in effect through twenty fourteen to two thousand seventeen and potential pandemic pathogen enhancement as defined in federal policies. In fact Twenty seventeen to present. So you know it's interesting you guys by the way. The materials reveal that the resulting novel laboratory generated sars related corona viruses also could infect mice engineered to display human receptors on their cells. So these are humanized mice essentially and it's interesting this puts government in quite a predicament. Because we do as you guys know we do have anthony fao e on record during one of his well several of his many yes Congressional testimonies we denying any part in dana function research. No no no. My department did not fun to that. I don't know what you're talking about. That is not true. That is not the definition. I don't know if you guys out there. Recall this but let me just refresh them before before i get your your thoughts gentlemen. Let me refresh the audience on senator rand paul grilling dr couch on dana function research. Watch dr phil. Do you still support funding of the nih. Funding of the lab. And wuhan senator paul with all due respect you entire entirely and completely incorrect that the nih has not ever and does not now fund gain of function. Research in the wuhan institute do eric. We do not fund barracks gain of function research. Dr barrett does not doing gain of function research. And if it is it's according to the guidelines and it is being conducted in north carolina. Now think bad virus spike protein that got from the wuhan institute into the sars viruses gain of function that is not a minority because at least two hundred. Scientists have signed a statement from the cambridge. Working group saying that it is gain of function. Well it is not and if you look at the grant and you look at the progress reports. It is not gained a function despite the fact that people tweet that so died. Sending money to the wugang virology institute. We do not send money now to do on sending money we did under your tutelage we were sending it through eco health. It was a sub agency and the sub grad. Do you support the money from it. I h that was going to the wuhan institute. Let me explain to you why that was done. The saws covy. One originated in bats in china. It would have been irresponsible of us. If we did not investigate the bat viruses and the serology to see who might have been perhaps china. Now i'm old enough to remember. When you were called conspiracy theorist when you were kicked off of social media you were d platform for suggesting that. This corona virus was created in a lab yet. The more we uncover about this seems to be exactly what has happened by the way all of this lines up with cheese emails that we have seen where you know they would start discussing something about gain of function Something about the wuhan lab. And all of a sudden the emails would say Are you available for a quick call. Why don't we get on the phone and discuss this hint hint. Please stop emailing about this and leaving paper trails So all of this seems to align i. I don't think either of you at this table. Surprised at this but it is interesting to see. I feel like the rest of society come to terms with what we have been saying for a while here and to have the evidence to back it up is huge but will anything happen from day. One right from day one at least the three of us and i know and i'm going to pull something up here. This is a life life website. Okay this is. This is echo health life. Now go okay this is. This is the organization organization granted for this website. Now as we're sitting here on this show emergency infectious diseases. Southeast asia program info echo health alliance. The research is part of the de funded centers for research on their website. It says that they're funded right now. You go on and you find out that people days zack. Who's their president here that they received forty million dollars from the pentagon well. Let's just forty million pentagon okay. Why the pentagon because the same day zack. In a columbia university report wrote that there's a direct connection and he depicted the pandemic in such in military terms that it is a military weapon that a pandemic pandemic could be militarized right. They scrubbed that. They pulled it off and he wrote this in the paper called. Donald rumsfeld's prescient speech. Look it up okay. So forty million from the pentagon why is the pentagon involved.

"Odds are the state where you live is not testing enough people for the corona virus alternately. I am deeply worried that four six eight weeks down the road. We're going to find ourselves exact same place. We were in in early March and we will have to shut the economy down again. Dr Sheesh. Joh- runs the Harvard Global Health Institute which along with NPR has analyzed testing in every state. It turns out that only a handful of states are doing enough testing to reopen safely. You can track how your state is doing. There's a link to that in our episode notes and we learned today that another three point. Two million people filed for unemployment for the first time last week that means in all at least thirty three point. Five million people have lost their jobs in the past. Seven weeks coming up why. Scientists are racing to understand how the virus is mutating and an effort to train dogs to sniff out cove in Nineteen. This is corona virus daily from NPR. I'm Kelly mcevers. It's Thursday may seventh. Where did the corona virus come from Internet? Search TRAFFIX SUGGESTS. A lot of us are looking for answers to that question. One theory that the White House is promoting a theory for which they have yet to produce any evidence is that the virus leaked from Chinese lab. Just thinking about the way that we do this type of work. I think it's very unlikely it would be very unlikely. This would be a lab exposure. Npr's Daily Science podcast shortwave talk to variety and epidemiology and heard over and over again that it is far more likely. This virus originated and spread naturally by way of close contact between humans and animals. Here's why I. There are many corona viruses out. There evidence suggests this virus might have come from bats are studied in a lab and Wuhan Wuhan Institute veracity. It's a top tier Chinese research center but experts also estimate that bats on a global scale. Kerry four thousand different corona viruses. Most of the viruses. Actually probably don't even have the capacity to infect humans that Simon Anthony University Medical Center for scientists to find a corona virus in the wild that had already evolved in a way that was highly infectious to people. Those are just lottery odds we also should say. Us intelligence agencies have ruled out any version of events where the virus was made and leaked intentionally and scientists at the Wuhan Institute a variety denied. They had any such virus in the first place even if they did for it to leak out. Some very stringent lab safety protections would have to have been seriously ignored at risk. Two lab workers themselves on top of all of that scientists would only do work in the first place with viral samples that had been frozen in liquid nitrogen and then killed using chemicals. What does the abundance of evidence suggest? That's Raina Plow Right at Montana State University. In this case the abundance of evidence suggests this is a virus that has spilled from bats either into another species and then humans or perhaps from bats directly into humans. The virus might have spread in that wet market. We've heard about but scientists don't know that for sure either in China like a lot of places in the world. Humans and animals are in increasingly close. Contact graph fragmenting habitats with building royds through most regions of the world where incrementally destroying the lodge landscapes that animals have to live in. Npr's Emily Quang and Jeff Brumfield have more on the origins of the virus and why scientists believe working with China is key to learning more about it you can listen to more about this.

"wuhan institute veracity" Discussed on The Heat
"You have scientists from across the West declaring absolutely definitively the Kobe nineteen could have not escaped from a lab but then it came roaring back in April comes out on Fox News in coordinated fashion in the trump administration begins to sabre-rattling China blaming it for all forty thousand deaths in the US experts debating the origins of covered nineteen. The one thing many seem to agree on it came from nature that hasn't stopped some conservative news organizations and the White House from reporting conspiracy theories Mr President Multiple sources are telling Fox News today that the United States government now has high confidence that while the Corona virus is a naturally occurring virus. It emanated from a variety. Lab in Wuhan. Does that correspond with what you have heard for well? I don't want to say that John but I will tell you a more and more. We're hearing the story and we'll see when you say multiple sources. Now there's a case where you can use the word sources in recent weeks. Theories have spread throughout the Internet claiming covert nineteen began laboratory near the Chinese city of John Claims repeatedly and vigorously denied by China. The scientific community has rejected right-wing media outlets and social media speculation that the virus started in the Han lab but at a time when facts most needed. How far will false rumors spread? What dangers does misinformation post to the global cause of defeating this deadly pandemic? Hello I'm on ninety. Welcome to the heat podcast to talk more about misinformation in the media we were joined on our television program by journalist and author. Max Blumenthal the founder and editor of the grey zone. Let's listen Max joining us. Thanks for having me on. This corona virus outbreak has spawned a whole wave of conspiracy theories. It seems almost every day. There's a new one and one can understand this getting onto social media because there's a largely unregulated platforms. But now we're seeing it creep into mainstream media into some big hockey titles. What do you make of that? Well I I especially want to thank you for having me on because no US network No independent US network will have beyond. To debunk this conspiracy. Theory which is being rolled out in mainstream media pushed by the trump administration specifically by Mike pompeo's State Department. It seems that no debate is allowed when an The US regime change elite wants to roll out a conspiracy theory but if a Chinese official for example the spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry. Introduces one about the virus escaping from Fort Dietrich all hell breaks loose and US media is filled with condemnations at the grey zone. I along with my colleague achieved sing really methodically debunked this conspiracy theory and what we showed was first of all that it was. I kind of tested through trial balloon in the right wing. Washington Times owned by the South Korean Unification Church debunked at the time by the Washington. Post along with a scientific consensus and have scientists from across the West in nature magazine declaring absolutely definitively that. This could not have escaped from lab. Kobe nineteen could have not escaped from elaborate. In the product of Lab Manufacturing Lancet magazine twenty seven scientists saying the same thing but then it can roaring back with a vengeance in April as the trump administration was grappling with forty thousand deaths on its hands in the US Seeking to point the finger at China and it turned to a neo conservative columnist in the Washington Post opinion section. Josh Rogin at the same newspaper that had originally debunked theory the State Department supplied cables which Rogan proceeded to spin claiming that there are safety issues at the Wuhan Institute of Technology and suggesting through various sleights of hand that the virus could have escaped from the lab and then his story was shared by leading lights of the liberal media of the Democratic Establishment. This was on April. Fourteen and the following day it comes out on Fox News in coordinated fashion in the trump administration begins to sabre-rattling China blaming it for all forty thousand deaths in the US. So that's how this conspiracy theory was revived and it's still out there still alive and ether with very little debunking or debate. Yeah you mentioned came out on Fox News and I'm wondering how much coordination there is between some politicians and news outlets because there was a republican politician who blamed China for the outbreak in on that very same night. Fox Was Broadcasting. This report saying that the virus came from a laboratory. But I'm listening to what you're saying. And what Brett saying what do you think? Where do you think the story leads will shine since January? I've said it seems to be highly coincidental. This very contagious virus originated just a few hundred yards or maybe a couple miles from laboratories where the Chinese Communist Party Researches Krona viruses senator. Tom Cotton who is really The kind of pet project of the neoconservative movement and he was really Propped up by the billionaires behind the neoconservative movement Paul Singer Sheldon Adelson to lead trump's maximum pressure policy on Iran. But now that the new Cold War is turning towards China. Tom Cotton is leading the charge there as well and so in the morning. Brett Baer who's a correspondent at Fox News Rolls Out a evidence? Free story insinuating that covert nineteen escaped from the Ron Institutes Veracity. He cites official. Us sources doesn't name them says they have proof but he has himself not seen it and that night Tom. Cotton appears on. Sean Hannity the Primetime Fox Opinion Show and declares the China's responsible for every death. They have blood on their hands. And they have to pay the price so this is obviously coordinated and as I mentioned the day before the Washington columnist Josh Rogin neoconservative who previously worked at the Japanese Embassy. Close friends with Orion strategies. The lobbying firm which has had the contract for Taiwan he was he received the State Department cables from Mike Pompeo State Department to insinuate that there were safety issues at the Wuhan lab so this whole thing was coordinated by the trump administration through the media and then it comes back to hardliners like Tom. Cotton then after Tom. Cotton spectacle on Fox News the following day. Mike Pompeo Secretary of state former C. I. A. Director most militaristic member of the trump administration demands. Us access to the Wuhan Institutes Veracity. Pushing the conspiracy theory to a new level. You know there are so many echoes listening to you. There of what happened in the build up to the Iraq war. In fact in your piece you compare this media onslaught with the one that tried to legitimize that Iraq wall. Yet Josh Rogin here played the role of Judith. Miller Judith Miller was the New York Times correspondent who basically was the cipher or the sort of human bulletin board for neoconservative propaganda about Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction which provided the justification for the invasion of Iraq they had derived that phony intelligence from a Iraqi defector in curve ball turned out to just basically be a paid asset who is lying and Miller through the New York Times provided this neoconservative deception with the veneer of mainstream respectability and it allowed the Bush administration specifically the neo-con civilians in the Pentagon to sell that story throughout the beltway including two Democrats. You saw Hillary Clinton and Senator Joe Biden advancing the WMD lied lie on the Senate floor. And that's what's happened here with the Washington Post Josh Rogin and again. There's been no pushback. That's why we did what we did at the Grey Zone methodically dismantling this conspiracy theory and no. Us network will allow us to come on and debunked when you look at this kind of reporting maximum. What are the dangers in reporting this kind of unhinged concerns conspiracy theories? We're we're hurdling full speed towards a new cold war with a nuclear armed rising economic power. That could quickly become a hot war. If anyone knows the history anything can happen the. Us has through the pivot to Asia sought to encircle China with its navy with military bases From Korea to Japan and elsewhere so this is really a dangerous situation and when you start accusing powerful new rival of essentially manufacturing disease that's killing tens of thousands of Americans you're not only kind of invoking a yellow peril in the US where Asian Americans are being targetted with hate crimes. You're using extremely militaristic rhetoric that could lead toward world war. Obviously that's not in the cards right now but it's something every American should be concerned about and then beyond that you have an element in the national security state which seek which is seeking to justify record defense spending at the expense of America's healthcare system which is in a state of catastrophe right now as the krona virus crisis clearly reveals. There was also some support for the Washington Post reporting from the Columbia Journalism Review. I mean many people consider this to be a serious journal about the practice of journalism. That surprise you. Yeah the Columbia Journalism Review supposed to be a media watchdog and I would have thought that they would have blown this conspiracy theory out of the water. Of course if this had been a inspir- issy theory that advanced Russian or Chinese narrative. They would have done so but said instead one of their top editors wrote that Josh Rogin had a produced some bombshell reporting and it was obviously an intelligence plant. That produced Josh Rogan's bogus reporting. It was obviously a State Department this info dump but it wasn't just the Columbia Journalism Review. It was Chris Hayes. Supposed to be the smart guy at Msnbc who is sort of a on the center left it was Charles blow a anti-trump vehemently anti trump New York Times columnist. Who shared this phony story by? I saw buzzfeed editor Sharon declare that. It's absolutely plausible. That the virus escaped from a Chinese lab. You know and I just thought of the irony of this group. Paul poisoning in Salisbury England. Where there was the Porton Down's lab near the poisoning in anyone who suggested that Novacek could've been produced Escaped from that lab was immediately not just dismissed blacklisted as a Russian propaganda. But they're doing the exact same thing. Mike thanks so much for joining us. Thanks for having me. That was our conversation with journalist.
