Steve Hilton reveals explosive evidence on COVID-19 origins and the Fauci connection

‘The Next Revolution’ host Steve Hilton investigated the origins of the coronavirus and announced his findings on Fox News Sunday night.

Hilton noted that a Utah mink was the first case of COVID-19 to be found in a wild animal.

According to Hilton, minks and related animals have respiratory systems that operate similarity to humans.

About 10 years ago, researchers in the Netherlands did an experiment on ferrets and found that a virus that started without the ability to be transmitted throughout the air, can eventually gain that ability.

This led to a new type of research called “Gain-of-Function” virus research. The idea was to replicate in a lab what had been done to the ferrets.

“Take a virus and then manipulate its genetic code to make it stronger and more powerful. The virus would gain new functions – hence the name,” Hilton explained.

Many researchers thought the new gain-of-function virus research was promising. If researchers could engineer the most contagious, deadly viruses in a lab, they could learn about potential treatments and vaccines without an actual outbreak.

Over the years, gain-of-function virus research has been used all over the world. One of the leading laboratories in gain-of-function research was based in Wuhan, China at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“As well as having great potential to help mankind, gain-of-function research can also hurt us,” Hilton said. “Imagine if a deadly virus engineered in the lab to be incredibly contagious, somehow escaped from the lab. It could reek havoc, precisely because it was designed to do that.”

Gain-of-function research has always been controversial because of these risks. Under the Obama administration, the White House cut funding for gain-of-function research following “recent biosafety incidents at federal research facilities,” the administration said in a statement in 2014.

“The funding pause will apply to gain-of-function research projects that may be reasonably anticipated to confer attributes to influenza, MERS or SARS viruses such that the virus would have enhanced pathogenicity and/or transmissibility in mammals via the respiratory route,” the statement continued.

According to Hilton, leading infectious disease doctor Anthony Fauci funded the first ferret study. Fauci said it was a “risk worth taking” and “important information and insights can come from generating a potentially dangerous virus in the laboratory.”

Hilton showed documents that proved in 2014, Dr. Fauci commissioned and continued to fund gain-of-function virus research at the Wuhan Institute in direct violation of the Obama administration ban.

In 2014, Fauci began a research project to assess the risk of new coronavirus emerging from wild animals, like bats.

One of the main goals of the project was to see what viruses can affect both animals and humans.

The project was sub-contracted to EcoHealth Alliance, INC based in New York. It was run by Peter Daszak, a zoologist that specializes in wildlife diseases.

Dr. Fauci funded over 3 million dollars to EcoHealth for his project, despite the Obama administration ban.

Daszak then sub-contracted the project to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology then began to genetically engineer new viruses from the feces of bats and infected human cells with the virus.

“The genetic changes they made in the lab, unlocked a highly specific doorway into the human body. The virus that causes COVID-19 uses that same exact doorway,” Hilton said.

New documents show China trying to establish ‘satellite state’ in Caribbean

China has been “exploiting a fragile security environment and taking advantage of the region’s need for economic investment to gain influence and advance its malign agenda” in a move that challenges U.S. hegemony in the Americas, U.S. Southern Command Comm. General Laura Richardson recently told Congress in written testimony.

The Caribbean island nation of Antigua and Barbuda, located about 220 miles from the U.S. Virgin Islands, is where China is planning to establish a special Chinese-run economic zone, according to documents reviewed by Newsweek

Just The News  reports that per the documents, the area will have its own customs and immigration facilities, a shipping port and it will even issue passports. China will also establish different kinds of businesses that will specialize in things from facial surgery to virology, the latter of which is closely associated with the research in Wuhan that is the suspected source of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A spokesperson for SOUTHCOM said that the U.S. military is “aware that China may use its commercial and diplomatic presence for military purposes. In Asia, Africa and the Middle East, China has already abused commercial agreements at host-country ports for military aims; our concern is they may do the same in this region.”

More than two-thirds of the 31 nations under SOUTHCOM’s responsibility have signed onto China’s belt-and-road initiative, which is Beijing’s program to lend money to developing nations to use for infrastructure projects, according to Just The News.

Several nations have had problems with repaying such loans, resulting in Beijing seizing the country’s assets. For example, Sri Lanka struggled to pay back Beijing in 2017 and instead signed off the rights to a strategic port, according to Foreign Policy.

Rep. Eric Burlison, R-Mo., a member of the House Oversight Committee proving China’s incursion inside the U.S. sphere of influence, told Just the News on Monday night that Beijing’s aggression in the Caribbean reminded him of the Soviet’s intervention in Fidel Castro’s Cuba more than a half century earlier.

“It reminds me of Russia’s involvement in Cuba, just 220 miles off the shore of the US Virgin Islands. We have Antigua. It used to be considered the United States back yard. Unfortunately, today, it’s China’s front yard,” Burlison told the “Just the News, No Noise television show. “And China has used the united front to enter into loan agreements and contracts to create trade zones within Antigua in order to gain a foothold into the Caribbean.”

“And this is just part of their efforts around the globe, whether it’s in African countries or Laos. They’re they’re creating a network to try to undermine the U.S. dollar and try to end run around some of our tariffs and other programs,” he warned.
