It’s Only A ‘Conspiracy Theory’ When It Accuses The US Government

Medium. com | Oct. 4, 2022

The western political/media class has been dismissing as “conspiracy theories” all claims that the US is likely responsible for last month’s sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines, even while leveling the exact same accusations against Russia without ever using that term. Which probably says a lot about the way that label has been used over the years, if you think about it.

At a UN Security Council meeting on Friday, US envoy Richard Mills repeatedly accused Russia of promoting “conspiracy theories” in its Nord Stream accusations against the United States, saying that “our Russian colleagues have decided to instrumentalize the Security Council meeting to spread conspiracy theories and disinformation.”

“It’s important that we use this meeting not to foster conspiracy theories, but to focus our attention on Russia’s blatant violation of the Charter and its crimes in Ukraine,” Mills argues, after saying that “the United States categorically denies any involvement in this incident” and that there is no justification for “the Russian delegation raising conspiracy theories and mass disinformation in this Council.”

Marvel Shills For Pfizer With COVID Vaccine Avengers PSA Comic Book

Summit News | Oct. 10, 2022

Marvel has come under criticism for producing a paid for comic book to promote Pfizer’s mRNA COVID vaccines.

The comic features The Avengers characters, comparing them to “everyday heroes who fight to protect their community” by dutifully taking Pfizer vaccines and campaigning for others to do the same.

A LinkedIn post by Pfizer announced “Today, Pfizer and BioNTech announced our new collaboration with Marvel Comics.”

The post continues, “Together we created a custom comic book featuring the Avengers who fight to protect their community. We hope that people around the world enjoy reading the comic book… At Pfizer, we encourage people to come together to help protect themselves by staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations.”

FACT CHECK: Gold teeth allegedly recovered from Russian torture chamber turn out to be “bad teeth” removed by village dentist

(Natural News) An investigation into gold teeth Ukraine claimed to have recovered from a Russian “torture chamber” has revealed that they were actually from a village dentist.

On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense posted a photograph showing a box filled with gold dental crowns they claimed were extracted from Ukrainian victims in a “torture chamber” in the town of Pisky-Radkivski in Kharkiv province.

“A torture chamber in Pisky-Radkivski,” wrote the Defense Ministry. “A box of gold dental crowns. A mini Auschwitz. How many more will be found in occupied Ukraine?” (Related: New report finds Ukrainian troops equally liable for nursing home massacre early in war with Russia.)

The so-called torture chamber was found in a cellar of a home, where locals were allegedly “kept in inhumane conditions” and were “intimidated, beaten and abused.”

Ukrainian officials, including Anton Geraschchenko, an advisor to the minister of internal affairs, further claimed that Russian occupiers tortured Ukrainian residents by other means. This includes burying people alive and putting a burning rag into a gas mask and forcing villagers to wear it.

Since the beginning of Ukraine’s counteroffensive in the Kharkiv, officials have claimed to find torture sites all over the province. The military even claims to have found at least 10 in the city of Izium alone.

Local dentist: These teeth look like the ones from my cabinet

The story regarding the “mini Auschwitz” torture chamber in Pisky-Radkivski was shared uncritically by multiple mainstream media outlets, spreading the story to millions of people all over the world.

But reporters for German-language media outlet BILD visited Pisky-Radkivski a day after Ukrainian officials and mainstream media spread claims of torture in the village. They found that the teeth did not come from dead or tortured villagers, but from patients of a local dentist.

“These teeth look like the ones from my cabinet,” said Sergey, 60. “I’m the only dentist here. So if they were found here, they must be mine.” He told BILD that the teeth are actually gold-colored stainless steel, adding that the teeth were likely used to intimidate locals.

“Nearby residents reported to me that the Russians apparently used these to scare people,” said Sergey.

When asked by BILD if there’s a chance the crowns came from dead people – villagers or Ukrainian soldiers – Sergey said the teeth came from people he has treated over the years. “I took those teeth out because they were bad,” he said.

“Over the course of 30 years, I have removed tens of thousands of teeth. This is just a fraction of them. Sometimes I pull out five to eight teeth in one day. I have been doing this for 33 years,” said Sergey.

Disinfo operative caught in secret influence operation after attacking Elon Musk over push to buy Twitter

Image: Disinfo operative caught in secret influence operation after attacking Elon Musk over push to buy Twitter

(Natural News) Another of the deep state’s disinformation operatives has been uncovered as it becomes more apparent that the so-called “mainstream media” is little more than a massive propaganda machine used by the left to attack and dismantle American culture and institutions.

Readers are likely familiar with billionaire Elon Musk’s ongoing attempts to purchase Twitter, one of the biggest social media platforms on the planet and one that is rife with ‘bots’ and spam accounts that are used to shape narratives and drive false impressions about certain events and disfavored people. It’s not clear if Musk will be successful, though he reversed course last week and announced he would be moving ahead with the planned purchase at his original bid of $44 billion.

But after Musk first made his bid to buy the platform and in the days since he announced he would be ending his legal battle with Twitter, ‘journalists,’ left-leaning NGOs, Democratic politicians and far-left commentators have teed off on him like he’s the second coming of Adolph Hitler or Josef Stalin — all because Musk believes that the platform ought to be legitimately used for free speech, which was the original intent behind its co-founder and former CEO, Jack Dorsey.

“Of all the regime scribblers and scribes flooding the internet with glorified blog posts on the awfulness of Elon Musk’s Twitter bid, a piece by Renée DiResta published in The Atlantic stands out from the rest — not because of its force of argument, but because of the largely forgotten scandal behind its author,” Revolver News reported in an exclusive. The outlet added:

Brighteon.TV

Like the now disgraced and jobless Nina Jankowicz, DiResta is a career-girl of the Disinformation Industry — a constellation of NATO and US State Department-funded NGOs and civil society groups that censor inconvenient truths, facts and narratives under the guise of protecting the public from so-called “disinformation.” And like Nina Jankowicz, it turns out that DiResta’s name is closely associated with one of the most explosive and aggressively covered-up influence operations of the century.

In her piece for The Atlantic, DiResta essentially poo-pooed the notion of Twitter being a truly free-speech platform, lumping in terrorist propaganda with legitimate concerns about COVID-19 ‘science’ as well as skepticism of the 2020 election. Mind you, when Trump won in 2016, the entire deep state propaganda apparatus, fueled by Democrats angry that Americans had dared to select someone for president other than candidates that had been ‘chosen,’ questioned his legitimacy at the time of his victory and in the years since, all of which was ‘permitted’ on social platforms including Twitter.

But before “DiResta was complaining about the threat of Elon Musk’s ‘free speech absolutism’ in the pages of the Atlantic, she worked (among other things) as a research director for a cyber security firm called New Knowledge,” Revolver News‘ report continued.

“New Knowledge’s purpose was to study the spread of disinformation, ‘malign narratives’ and Russian influence operations. In her capacity as Research Director for New Knowledge, DiResta submitted written testimony to the US Senate drawing attention to the danger of such Russian disinformation and influence operations, including the alleged Russian ‘troll farm’ Internet Research Agency — which every self-respecting disinformation operative knows to puff up as the most malign and consequential political influence operation in modern history,” the report continued.

However, there is one major malign influence op that DiResta did not disclose to the Senate: One conducted by her employer, New Knowledge, to sway the outcome of a 2017 special election in Alabama against populist GOP contender Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones, in favor of the latter (who only served one term). The details are positively scandalous, and even The New York Times reported on it:

As Russia’s online election machinations came to light last year, a group of Democratic tech experts decided to try out similarly deceptive tactics in the fiercely contested Alabama Senate race, according to people familiar with the effort and a report on its results.

An internal report on the Alabama effort, obtained by The New York Times, says explicitly that it “experimented with many of the tactics now understood to have influenced the 2016 elections.”

The project’s operators created a Facebook page on which they posed as conservative Alabamians, using it to try to divide Republicans and even to endorse a write-in candidate to draw votes from Mr. Moore. It involved a scheme to link the Moore campaign to thousands of Russian accounts that suddenly began following the Republican candidate on Twitter, a development that drew national media attention.

“We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet,” the report says.

Enter DiResta, per the Times:

Mr. Morgan reached out at the time to Renée DiResta, who would later join New Knowledge and was lead author of the report on Russian social media operations released this week.

“I know there were people who believed the Democrats needed to fight fire with fire,” Ms. DiResta said, adding that she disagreed. “It was absolutely chatter going around the party.”

But she said Mr. Morgan simply asked her for suggestions of online tactics worth testing. “My understanding was that they were going to investigate to what extent they could grow audiences for Facebook pages using sensational news,” she said.

In other words, DiResta — who earned a living as someone who researches Russian disinformation and influence operations and provided testimony to the U.S. Senate about the field of expertise “was caught red-handed acting as an advisor, if not participant, to an influence operation designed to discredit an American politician by planting false stories that he’s a beneficiary of a Russian influence operation,” Revolve News added.

It’s become clear that our American institutions, especially our media, are deep-state influence operations, not instruments designed to keep the public informed about their leaders.

Our country is doomed if this can’t be dismantled or replaced.

DOUBLE STANDARD: MSM misinformation stays up on YouTube indefinitely while truth media is labeled “disinformation” and gets censored, even when true

Image: DOUBLE STANDARD: MSM misinformation stays up on YouTube indefinitely while truth media is labeled “disinformation” and gets censored, even when true

(Natural News) The arbiters of so-called ‘misinformation’ and ‘disinformation’ of recent years are so far from impartial that they actually censor the truth about vital topics, even when undeniable proof exists. This is happening extensively in the arenas of health, safety, economics and national security. Fake news dominates the dissemination of nearly all news about these subjects, and the lies are never removed or corrected via Google, YouTube, social media, TV news or the newspapers.

In other words, there is a completely different standard for misinformation when it comes from the mouths of pundits, pharma hacks and so-called “experts” at the CDC, FDA or on MSM. For example, when it comes to promoting the Covid clot shots, it’s fairly wide open to claim just about anything positive about them, even when it’s not based on science, data or clinical trials. Simply go on television and swear up and down that the Wuhan virus jabs are “safe and effective,” and have no side effects, and always work, and keep you from getting a “bad case” of coronavirus. Say anything and it remains posted, uncensored, unedited, never corrected or taken down.

On the other hand, say anything negative about the Fauci Flu stabs, and within minutes or hours it will be taken down or labeled as ‘misinformation’ and ‘disinformation.’ Even when the bad news about the clot shots is verified by scientific studies, autopsies of the vaccinated, analyzed data and thousands of VAERS complaints, according to MSM, it’s fake news, conspiracy theory and misinformation.

Brighteon.TV

Simply go on YouTube or any social media platform and talk or publish information about all the injuries and deaths caused by the Covid-19 vaccines, and the search results in Google for those posts and videos will turn up nothing (if the information is not deleted completely). That’s why the jabbed-up masses are locked in their hypnotic state, while their blood is polluted with millions of toxic “spike protein” prions. Even if they hear some countering information to the lies they have adopted as truth, when they go to verify that information, Google tells them otherwise.

Completely different ‘standard’ for misinformation when MSM disseminates it, where no rules apply for censorship whatsoever

Here are clips of the ultimate pharma shill and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, and libtard pundit Rachel Maddow (where Russell Brand exposes her) swearing the Fauci Flu vaccine always works and nobody who gets jabbed can ever catch or spread the virus, plus she claims that’s not just in the clinical trials but proven in real world data. And they’re STILL UP on YouTube and social media. They even post faked CDC data that also has yet to be censored, corrected or taken down.

That’s how you know that the vaccine industrial complex (VIC) runs nearly all media, because the lies stay posted and the truth gets taken down, permanently. The vax-shills keep getting paid while the truth-tellers are de-funded and bankrupted by pharma. If you don’t bow down to the VIC, CDC and CCP (Chinese Communist Party) in Washington DC, then you are a “conspiracy theorist” and “domestic terrorist” spreading harmful disinformation that is responsible for killing fellow Americans, according to the script-reading pharma shills.

Keep your truth news in check by adding Preparedness.news to your favorites list and tuning in daily for updates on real news about surviving and thriving in the near future, and news that’s being scrubbed from MSM and social media as you read this.

Why Is Fauci Continuing to Fund EcoHealth Alliance?

  • EcoHealth Alliance was a key participant in risky gain of function research on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan, China, which is now suspected of having played a role in the creation of SARS-CoV-2. That research was funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci at the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

  • Despite EcoHealth’s shady history and potential role in the COVID pandemic, Fauci, before leaving office, is now giving EcoHealth another $3.3 million in additional funding

  • The NIAID has approved a $653,392 EcoHealth grant to analyze “the potential for future bat coronavirus emergence in Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam.” That sum is for the first year of a five-year project, so the total funding comes out to about $3.3 million

  • In addition to collecting and cataloguing novel bat coronaviruses, EcoHealth will also “rapidly supply viral sequences and isolates for use in vaccine and therapeutic development, including ‘prototype pathogen’ vaccines”

  • Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst has introduced the “Defund EcoHealth Alliance Act,” which specifies that “No funds authorized or appropriated by federal law may be made available for any purpose to EcoHealth Alliance Inc, including any subsidiaries and related organizations that are directly controlled by EcoHealth Alliance Inc.” This does not go far enough, however, as there are many others that would simply take their place. What we need is a ban on dual use, gain of function research

EcoHealth Alliance has received quite a bit of notoriety over the past three years as a key participant in risky gain of function research on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan, China, funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci at the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

EcoHealth Alliance president Peter Daszak was one of the 15 coauthors of the 2015 paper, “SARS-Like Cluster of Circulating Bat Coronavirus Pose Threat for Human Emergence,”1 which biowarfare expert Francis Boyle2 claims is “the smoking gun” that reveals the culprits responsible for the COVID pandemic.

EcoHealth is also linked to U.S.-funded biolabs in Ukraine by way of Nathan Wolfe, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader graduate, who has been on EcoHealth’s editorial board since 2004. Wolf is the founder of Metabiota, now implicated in the operation of biolabs in Ukraine that Russia claims have been conducting secret bioweapons research.3

Many articles have been written detailing EcoHealth’s suspected role in the COVID pandemic, as well as the National Institutes of Health’s funding of its risky gain of function research, yet despite that, Fauci, before leaving office, is now giving EcoHealth another $3.3 million in additional funding.4 5 To understand just how outrageous this is,6 7 let’s review some of what we know about EcoHealth and its research history.

In a March 31, 2022, investigative report,8 Vanity Fair contributor Katherine Eban reviewed the contents of more than 100,000 EcoHealth Alliance documents, including meeting minutes and internal emails and reports, most of which predate the COVID-19 pandemic, showing a disturbing reality of “murky grant agreements, flimsy NIH oversight and pursuit of government grants by pitching increasingly risky global research.”9

Records show EcoHealth received a $3.7 million NIAID grant in 2014 to study the risk of bat coronavirus emergence and the potential for outbreaks in human populations. Nearly $600,000 of that went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which was a key collaborator.

Warning bells started ringing in 2016, when EcoHealth failed to submit its annual progress report. NIAID threatened to withhold funds until the report was filed, and when Daszak finally submitted it, grant specialists found cause for concern.

According to the report, Daszak and his collaborators were seeking to create an infectious clone of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), a novel coronavirus with a 35% mortality rate. To that end, they constructed two chimeric coronaviruses that were similar to SARS, the virus responsible for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.

The report prompted National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant specialists to ask whether the work should be subject to the federal moratorium on gain of function research on influenza, SARS and MERS viruses, which had been in place since October 2014.10

The moratorium had some loopholes, however, which Daszak exploited to continue his research. In a June 2016 response to the grant specialists, Daszak claimed the SARS-like chimeras they’d constructed were exempt from the moratorium because the viral strains used were not known to infect humans.

In his letter to the NIH, Daszak also referenced a 2015 paper written by Shi Zhengli and Ralph Baric, Ph.D., which detailed an experiment in which they mixed components of SARS-like viruses of different species to create a novel chimera capable of directly infecting human cells.

Incidentally, this research was funded by both the NIH and EcoHealth. According to Daszak, the chimera produced was less lethal than the original SARS, so his chimera would probably be less lethal as well.

However, the NIH grant specialists were far from reassured that his MERS chimera wouldn’t be dangerous, as Shi and Baric in that 2015 paper had noted the danger of such experiments, stressing that “scientific review panels may deem similar studies … too risky to pursue.”

Daszak then proposed a compromise. If any of the chimeric strains showed 10 times greater growth than a natural virus, he would immediately cease experiments, inform the NIAID program officer and the Institutional Biosafety Committee of the results, and participate in decision-making trees to decide how to move forward.

Considering the rationale for the research was that these pathogens could potentially cause a pandemic, Daszak’s claim that the research posed no such risk is rather contradictory. Daszak’s argument also had another hole in it.

Three months before Daszak suggested the virus they were going to use as the backbone for the chimeras, dubbed WIV1, had “never been demonstrated to infect humans or cause human disease,” his collaborator, Baric, had published a paper11 showing WIV1 did indeed have the ability to infect humans.12

Baric, who works at UNC Chapel Hill, had found the WIV1 virus “readily replicated efficiently in human airway cultures and in vivo,” and posed an “ongoing threat” to the human population. This completely contradicts Daszak’s statement, and it’s doubtful that Daszak would not be aware of the paper published by Baric three months earlier. It’s doubtful the NIH would be ignorant of Baric’s finding as well.

Despite all of that, the NIH agreed to Daszak’s proposal. Shi — a Chinese operative with ties to the Chinese military — would be responsible for informing Daszak if any of the chimeras had 10 times the growth rate of a natural virus, and Daszak would inform the agency of the results, so they could decide the fate of the experiment.

It appears none of that actually happened. When EcoHealth’s scientists performed the experiment, one of the chimeric viruses did in fact grow much faster than the others, producing a viral load that was four logs greater than the parent virus.

This should have triggered the chain of oversight proposed by Daszak, but according to NIH principal deputy director Lawrence Tabak, Ph.D.,13 14 15 EcoHealth didn’t inform the NIH program officer about this gain of function.

EcoHealth, meanwhile, claims it did, and was permitted by default to continue, as no one at the NIH objected. Whatever the truth of that might be, what’s clear is that the NIH accepted EcoHealth’s proposal to circumvent gain of function rules.16

And, while everyone involved has tried to deny that this research had anything to do with gain of function, Daszak explicitly admitted it in a July 2016 email to the NIH. “This is terrific!” he wrote. “We are very happy to hear that our Gain of Function research funding pause has been lifted.”17 18 It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

With that backstory in mind — and that’s just one story raising questions about EcoHealth’s research ethics and role in the COVID pandemic — why is Fauci now flooding EcoHealth with fresh funds? As reported by Unherd.com October 3, 2022:19

“The NGO run by Peter Daszak has been granted another $600,000 by Anthony Fauci’s agency, NIAID.20 This, to say the least, has raised eyebrows. It’s hard to overstate the role Daszak has played in pandemic-related issues.

His EcoHealth Alliance is the organization responsible for funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars, sourced from US government grants to the now infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology, considered by many to be the likely source of the pandemic.

As I previously reported, he was the go-to source for the American media as they sought to ‘prove’ that the lab leak theory was little more than a Right-wing conspiracy. He also surreptitiously organized a letter21 in The Lancet, attempting to shut down the debate by labelling this potential origin as a ‘conspiracy theory.’

Most alarmingly, it was Daszak who submitted a 2018 proposal22 to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA] that called for scientists to insert a furin cleavage site — a key distinguishing and extremely rare feature of SARS-Cov-2 — into SARS-like viruses. In other words: a blueprint for making SARS-2 in a lab.

Daszak’s government funding was shut off in 2020, a move that spooked the EcoHealth Alliance chief, who urged staff and partners to refrain from making key genetic data public by uploading it to NIH’s genetic database, GenBank. Daszak told his colleagues that the genetic information could bring ‘unwelcome attention’ (he was right).

Numerous experts … have called on Congress to subpoena Daszak. Instead, the government has supercharged his funding. While recent headlines about a fresh $600,000 grant are accurate, the reality is that Daszak’s organization was awarded about five times that, $3.3 million,23 24 by the NIH to hunt viruses in south-east Asia.”

The $653,392 grant25 to analyze “the potential for future bat coronavirus emergence in Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam,” issued September 21, 2022, is for the first year of a five-year project, which is how the funding comes out to a total of about $3.3 million.26 27 28

The rationale behind the hunt for novel zoonotic viruses is that it will help researchers prepare against future pandemic threats. But looking at the volumes of papers published on coronaviruses, including chimeric coronaviruses suspected of being precursors to SARS-CoV-2, it’s clear that none of it helped prevent a global pandemic.

On the contrary, the evidence seems to point to the COVID pandemic being the result of such research. So, why is the NIH still funding the very organization that gave money to and worked with the very lab the whole world now suspects might be the source of the COVID pandemic?

As specified in the grant abstract,29 EcoHealth will also “rapidly supply viral sequences and isolates for use in vaccine and therapeutic development, including ‘prototype pathogen’ vaccines, via an existing MOU [memorandum of understanding] with the NIAID-CREID [NIAID’s Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases] network.”

Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst has now introduced a bill30 to put a permanent end to the government’s funding of the EcoHealth Alliance. “Giving taxpayer money to EcoHealth to study pandemic prevention is like paying a suspected arsonist to conduct fire safety inspections,” she told the Daily Caller,31 32 adding:

“NIH got it right when it canceled the funding for the experiments EcoHealth Alliance was conducting with China’s state-run Wuhan Institute. In addition to violating multiple federal laws, EcoHealth has still not turned over documents about these dangerous studies that NIH has requested on multiple occasions that could offer vital clues to the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I have introduced legislation to guarantee EcoHealth doesn’t receive another penny from any federal agency and to launch an investigation to determine once and for all how much U.S. taxpayer money was funneled into labs in China by EcoHealth.”

The bill, dubbed the “Defund EcoHealth Alliance Act,” specifies that “No funds authorized or appropriated by Federal law may be made available for any purpose to EcoHealth Alliance, Inc, including any subsidiaries and related organizations that are directly controlled by EcoHealth Alliance, Inc.”

Justin Goodman, senior vice president of advocacy and public policy at White Coat Waste Project, spoke out in support of the bill, telling the Daily Caller:33

“EcoHealth Alliance’s animal experiments should be de-funded, not re-funded. As we first exposed, this shady group funneled US tax dollars to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for dangerous animal experiments that likely caused the pandemic, skirted a federal ban on gain-of-function research, repeatedly violated transparency law and obstructed investigations into COVID’s origins.

Yet, records show that EHA [EcoHealth Alliance] has continued to receive millions of taxpayer dollars just since the pandemic began. We applaud Sen. Ernst for working to ensure that taxpayers are not forced to fund this reckless rogue lab contractor any longer. Stop the money, stop the madness.”

As detailed in “The COVID Rabbit Hole: An Inside Look at the Virus’ Origin,” evidence points to SARS-CoV-2 being the result of a lab leak, and that Fauci, Daszak and other researchers, China, the mainstream media, the World Health Organization and tech companies have all worked together to cover it up.

“All so-called biodefense research is biowarfare research. There’s no hard line separating the two. Hence the term ‘dual use’ research. What we need is a ban on dual use gain of function research, i.e., research in which a pathogen is equipped with new functions that makes it more dangerous, which could be used for good or ill.”

COVID-19 would not be the first infectious outbreak caused by a lab leak, and it surely won’t be the last — if we continue to allow mad scientists to continue this kind of work, that is. It’s important to realize that all so-called biodefense research is biowarfare research. There’s no hard line separating the two.

So, while Daszak, Fauci and the rest insist that gain of function research on human pathogens is necessary for defensive purposes, be it to prepare for zoonotic spillover or a terrorist biowarfare attack, the very same research also constitutes the creation of illegal bioweapons. Hence, the term “dual use” research. As noted in the journal of Science and Engineering Ethics back in 2007:34

“The dual-use dilemma arises in the context of research in the biological and other sciences as a consequence of the fact that one and the same piece of scientific research sometimes has the potential to be used for bad as well as good purposes.

It is an ethical dilemma since it is about promoting good in the context of the potential for also causing harm, e.g., the promotion of health in the context of providing the wherewithal for the killing of innocents.

It is an ethical dilemma for the researcher because of the potential actions of others, e.g., malevolent non-researchers who might steal dangerous biological agents, or make use of the original researcher’s work. And it is a dilemma for governments concerned with the security of their citizens, as well as their health.”

While Sen. Ernst’s Defund EcoHealth Alliance Act would end the government’s funding of one reckless research entity, there are many others that would simply take its place. So, in that regard, it would accomplish very little.

What we really need is a ban on dual use gain of function research, i.e., research in which a pathogen is equipped with new functions that makes it more dangerous, which could be used for good or ill. We simply do not need this kind of research. It’s all offensive, as it hasn’t prevented a single epidemic or pandemic to date.
