BAT-MAN IDENTITY REVEALED

“In 2014, the NIH approved a grant to EcoHealth Alliance designated for research into “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.”

Dr. Ross L. Riggs author’s note: The following is strictly the opinion of the author. No one affiliated with Dr. Riggs, SCI or its subsidiaries are represented by these remarks.

Over the past two weeks speculation has begun to emerge based on records which seem to indicate that in 2013 – 2014, the National Institute of Health (NIH) , specifically the infections disease research branch under the direction of Anthony Fauci, Director NIAD was working on research involving what has come to be known as COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. According to news reports, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security stopped all research with this particular virus strain and all funding for the research was halted in 2014. Sources report that in 2015 under the administration of President Obama, a U.S. federal grant for $3.7 million dollars was submitted, administered and approved for research on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) under  Director Fauci. The award went to investigate the direct relationships of bats to COVID-19. The research facility was in Wuhan, China. Is this true?

Some believe this news clears up a deeper mystery as to the true identity of Batman. Was it really Bruce Wayne? Perhaps, it is not Batman but Director Fauci might be Bat – man.

Some place a great amount of faith in groups like SNOPES, USA Today’s FACT CHECK and others because they “get to the truth!” I won’t go into the lunacy of trusting a media outlet which makes its money on its ability to sensationaize news to ‘fact check’ other media outlets who make money to sensationalize news. But, to be fair, let us look at the headline presented by USA Today on May 4, 2020.

Fact check: Obama administration did not send $3.7 million to Wuhan lab

Matthew Brown and Kim Hjelmgaard USA TODAY[i]

So, that settles it, right? The media reported it. Those in political circles who should know the truth verified it in political speak terms; but, FACT CHECK and these two writers at USA Today say, NOPE, did not happen. Well… that is stretching the blanket just a bit. Let us take time to read the article, or at last let me share the primary points, you can Google the entire article if you like.

“The claims that the Obama administration funded coronavirus research may be referring to a grant provided by the National Institutes of Health to EcoHealth Alliance, a research group that tracks emerging diseases. The grant is directly overseen by the NIH, and it continued under the Trump administration until it was recently rescinded.”

Okay, so there WAS a grant. We’ll see that it was $3.7 million of TAX PAYER $. But it went to EcoHealth Alliance so… WUHAN is off the hook and so is Fauci, NIH, and Obama. Not really. Keep reading.

“The EcoHealth Alliance is a nongovernmental research group that focuses on emerging diseases caused by human and animal interactions. The National Institutes of Health has consistently funded the organization for projects since at least 2002.” Every business owner needs a rich ‘uncle’.

“In 2014, the NIH approved a grant to EcoHealth Alliance designated for research into “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.” The project involved collaborating with researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study coronaviruses in bats and the risk of potential transfer to humans.”

SO…. there WAS a grant. It was for $3.7 million or so of U.S. citizens’ tax dollars. That is true.

The grant did focus on CORONAVIRUS and BATS. That is true.

The $$$ did go into the pockets of the research lab in WUHAN CHINA where the pandemic originated and was covered up by the Chinese government.  That is true.

The key is to CAREFULLY read the headline. It says,

             “Obama Administration did not send $3.7 Million to the Wuhan lab”

No, they didn’t. The Obama Administration authorized the NIH to send the money to EcoHealth Alliance who sent it to Wuhan, China! See… truth is all in how you bend it! I have this mental picture of Pilate dramatically washing his hands in front of the crowd seeking to crucify Christ.

Let’s continue the gist of the article:

“The original five-year grant (2014) was reapproved by the Trump administration in July 2019. In total, $3,378,896 in NIH funding was directed from the government to the project. The project, which was established “to understand what factors allow coronaviruses, including close relatives to SARS, to evolve and jump into the human population,” yielded 20 scientific reports on how zoonotic diseases may transfer from bats to humans.”

Okay, first I love ‘funding was directed from the government to the project’. It is not the government’s money. It is yours and mine. Uncle seems to forget sometimes.

Twenty reports for $3,378,896 is just under $169,000 for each report over a period that may go back to 2002. If so, that is almost one report per year! WOW! I hope they get a chance to rest!

At first I thought… I have no idea why President Trump renewed the grant. I am guessing because someone with the position and tenure of Director Fauci said, ‘we NEED this!’ and that Fauci probably said the same thing to President Obama. A CEO, a president, COO has to trust the experts around him;but, he also has to know how to ask questions. Not enough questions got asked and if they were asked, somebody did a heck of a snow job in answering them. What do you think, Director Fauci? But, wait… What exactly did President Trump approve in 2019? Let’s see.

Now EcoHealth says they only got two grants for about $600,000 from NIH as a fee for the collection and analysis of viral samples. That was broken down for USA Today by EcoHealth saying that “in 2014 about $133,000 was sent to the institute in Wuhan the first four years and $66,000 in the past year. In the second grant, approved in 2019, about $76,000 was budgeted for the Wuhan Institute though no money was sent before the grant’s termination.” (emphasis mine) I cannot tell by the way it reads if that is $133,00 was sent each year for four years plus $66,000 in 2019. That only adds up to about a half a million at the most, so where is the other $3.2 million?

If we sum up Brown’s and Hjelmgaard’s story, it seems to sound like President Trump reauthorized this $3.7 million dollar grant to the woohoo labs, but he really, apparently, only approved $76,000 which was never finalized and no money was spent.

EcoHealth Alliance has a vast number of corporate partners from the U.S. and worldwide including East China Normal University, King Saudi University, centers in Thailand, Malasia, and UCDavis in California. The list is extensive and I encourage you to checkout their website at ecohealthalliance.org/partners. Of course it includes in its whose-who, the CDC and NIH.

I have already shown that the title of the article is misrepresentative and, of course, as a writer, I know that the authors are often at the mercy of the editors who like to spruce up the headline for ‘grab points’. Still, it seems a trifle dishonest and absolutely misleading. The Obama Administration did authorize $3.7 million dollars of yours and my money to go for the purpose of finding out if bats prefer Corona, I mean, if bats can carry coronavirus and transfer it to humans. 

How many non-cave dwelling, non-ultra Goths in the U.S. spent any quality time with bats? How many us have them on the rotisserie grill for a mid-summer get together (not this year, though). I get it, though. One cave dwelling, bat breath belching bozo bites a sick bat and it spreads. The disease is awful, I’m not making fun of that. It is horrible and those responsible for bringing it to us deserve whatever justice permits. But, did the research teach us anything other than do not eat, nocturnal, upside-down hanging, radar directed, bug devouring flying rodents?

What did the tax-payers get for the investment?

            20 reports over maybe 18 years at right around $169,000 per report it better be A+ material here…

         We learned the answer to Question 1: Can bats transfer COVID 19 to humans. That is a BIG YES!!

Follow-up question: What about the grant being approved in 2014 and a moratorium on those grants in 2015, but it remained operational with Director Fauci apparently at the helm? Was this a way for him to continue his pet research after Homeland Security said, ‘no more’?

Question 3: There is such a disparity in how much money the grant awarded, how much EcoHealth says they got. So, where is the rest of the money? Maybe it is hidden in the bat cave!

There are more questions posed by the ‘Fact Check’ article than are answered. It seems to me, and this is just my personal opinion, but somebody ought to pick up the Bat Phone and have a sit down talk with Director Fauci. I am particularly concerned about whether or not there was a moratorium on such research and if NIH, under Fauci’s watch, circumvented federal mandates to keep the research going through the slight of hand only possible through government grants.

Perhaps the RIDDLER would pose a question like, ‘Who can control all the research on a possible source for a pandemic, control all the funding for the research, be in a position that would permit obfuscation of federal moratoriums while selling the need for the research to the highest levels of government and then prognosticate that within a few years the next president would face a pandemic from an unknown source?’

The media watch puppy, “Truth or Fiction” reports that it is absolutely true that Fauci predicted this pandemic in 2017. Here is the quote,

 January 11, 2017

“Anthony S. Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said there is ‘no doubt’ Donald J. Trump will be confronted with a surprise infectious disease outbreak during his presidency.”[ii] It may have been a surprise to everyone else; but, I believe, Dr. Fauci knew exactly what was coming and maybe, just maybe, he even knew when. If so, that raises his culpability to the highest level. It is my hope that justice will prevail, if that is truly the case.

CYBER CORONA ? How Hackers are Using the Virus Scare to Steal Your Identity

15 MARCH 2020  

THE FOLLOWING IS A REPORT ON THE CYBER IMPACT

OF THE CORONAVIRUS SCARE

Please before you shut down and ignore everything that is to follow, this is NOT a re-hash of the garbage which has been spilling out of the mouths of talking heads on every media outlet. The information being provided here is vital for anyone who knows someone who may be more susceptible to SCAMMERS particularly when it comes to matters of health, healthcare and the worries over the virus.

Usually, when we think of persons susceptible to scams involving health-care, the seniors in our family circles are the first on our minds. This is certainly true now because of the fear-mongering being thrown upon them in daily news casts and their conversations with friends and family. It is not only, though, seniors who are at risk. New information available through intelligence sources indicates that cyber-criminals; those who hack systems for information, others who are phishing for identification information and even those who are spreading their own kinds of viruses are using  COVID-19 as a means to their criminal ends.

Anyone who finds in their e-mail something looking even vaguely official claiming specific information regarding the Coronavirus Disease will likely open it. The user is then susceptible to malware, spyware, trojans and even backdoor programs which can completely destory any confidentiality of the users’ information. Malware can infect a computer program with a worm, virus or trojan. The differentiation is the virus will introduce a malware which attaches itself to a program and mass reproduces itself throughout the system and through the contacts the user has on their system. A worm is similar in destructiveness without the replication and trojans are “programs that, enter computers appearing to be harmless programs, install themselves and carry out actions that affect user confidentiality.”[i] Spyware can infiltrate a system to monitor all activity on a device and obtain information which breaches security software, exposing confidential identification information. Sources report that internationally placed hackers are using the scare tactics easily contrived due to Coronavirus to plant such software and even use backdoor programs to open cameras and microphones remotely, obtaining all types of confidential information. Backdoor programs literally allow the hacker into your system to have free reign of it and all the information contained therein.

Phishing expeditions work similarly, introducing themselves to the user by claiming some connection to a government entity involved in healthcare or emergency measures due to the ‘outbreak.’ Not relying on just software to do their work, they seek to solicit private information from the user through e-mail or by telephone contact following up an email. They claim to need to confirm the users’ information and current status for healthcare reasons. They may claim to be from a government health insurance program designed to protect the person from hospital costs due to Coronavirus, etc. In so doing, they obtain as much confidential identification information as possible from the user. They may also solicit funds for caring for others sickened by the disease or for an insurance policy for the user or their family against the costs affiliated with contracting the disease.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF and OTHERS comes back to the basics. Health officials are telling everyone it is all about limiting contact and avoid spreading germs. This is done by suppressing coughs and sneezes while being proactive. One way to be proactive is by thoroughly washing your hands. Such simple actions are key to battling the actual virus, the same is true in the cyber world.

LIMIT CONTACT Do Not Open any e-mail that comes from someone unknown to you and purports to be from a government or health entity about the Coronavirus. If you have already opened it and you become suspicious of its contents, DO NOT download any files. In fact, do not download any files that come from ANYONE other than someone you specifically know and trust.

AVOID SPREADING the virus. Run scans on your system daily, automatically scheduleds scans are good precautions any time. Also, scan your system immediately after you have opened something of which you are unsure. Make certain others in your on-line circles do the same and have them let you know if they receive anything from you that does not look right.

BE PROACTIVE  Running system scans and keeping malware protection up-to-date are like washing your computer’s hands. Keep up on the latest phishing and scam attempts which are prevelant.

COMMON SENSE is what will see us past the Coronavirus COV-19 scare, although, sadly there is little of it being displayed. Common sense will also help you prevent yourself or others you care for from being taken down by some virus hacker sitting in the dark in his mother’s basement somewhere in a suburb anywhere in the world.
