🚨 Project Veritas Obtains Documents Apparently Confirming Fauci-Linked EcoHealth Sought DARPA Grant to Conduct Gain of Function Research

I thought we already knew this. But apparently it was not known for certain. What the Project Veritas documents provide is confirmation. At least if Project Veritas is to be believed.

Project Veritas has obtained startling never-before-seen documents regarding the origins of COVID-19, gain of function research, vaccines, potential treatments which have been suppressed, and the government’s effort to conceal all of this.

The documents in question stem from a report at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known as DARPA, which were hidden in a top secret shared drive.

DARPA is an agency under the U.S. Department of Defense in charge of facilitating research in technology with potential military applications.

Project Veritas has obtained a separate report to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense written by U.S. Marine Corp Major, Joseph Murphy, a former DARPA Fellow.

The report states that EcoHealth Alliance approached DARPA in March 2018, seeking funding to conduct gain of function research of bat borne coronaviruses. The proposal, named Project Defuse, was rejected by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violates the basis gain of function research moratorium.

I’m guessing they called it “Project Defuse” because the overall goal was to learn how to better fight against bat-borne coronaviruses if they ever made the jump to humans.

Of course, doing so would require genetically altering bat-borne coronaviruses to make it so they could jump to humans. This sounds like saying we need to actually nuke a major American city in order to figure out how to best respond in the instance a major American city gets nuked.

According to the documents, NIAID, under the direction of Dr. Fauci, went ahead with the research in Wuhan, China and at several sites across the U.S.

Dr. Fauci has repeatedly maintained, under oath, that the NIH and NAIAD have not been involved in gain of function research with the EcoHealth Alliance program. But according to the documents obtained by Project Veritas which outline why EcoHealth Alliance’s proposal was rejected, DARPA certainly classified the research as gain of function. 

“The proposal does not mention or assess potential risks of Gain of Function (GoF) research,” a direct quote from the DARPA rejection letter.

We’re basically just arguing semantics at this point.

Major Murphy’s report goes on to detail great concern over the COVID-19 gain of function program, the concealment of documents, the suppression of potential curatives, like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine, and the mRNA vaccines.

Wait, I’m confused here. Did we just jump forward in the timeline?

Project Veritas reached out to DARPA for comment regarding the hidden documents and spoke with the Chief of Communications, Jared Adams, who said, “It doesn’t sound normal to me,” when asked about the way the documents were shrouded in secrecy. “If something resides in a classified setting, then it should be appropriately marked,” Adams said. “I’m not at all familiar with unmarked documents that reside in a classified space, no.”

In a video breaking this story published on Monday night, Project Veritas CEO, James O’Keefe, asked a foundational question to DARPA:

“Who at DARPA made the decision to bury the original report? They could have raised red flags to the Pentagon, the White House, or Congress, which may have prevented this entire pandemic that has led to the deaths of 5.4 million people worldwide and caused much pain and suffering to many millions more.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci has not yet responded to a request for comment on this story.

Let’s get into the documents.

So EcoHealth requested $14.2 million from DARPA to fund research on “defusing the threat of bat-borne coronaviruses” back in 2018.

But they were denied:

The three points in the refusal page that I found the most interesting are 1, 2 and 9.

1 says the EcoHealth proposal is “considered to potential involve Gain of Function (GoF) or Dual Use Research of Concern (DURC)” research.

2 however says that the EcoHealth proposal does not mention or assess the potential risks of GoF research.

So what DARPA was saying is that it seemed like gain of function research to them, but EcoHealth didn’t describe it as such.

9 talks about the vaccines being developed for the bat-borne coronaviruses in question. DARPA raised questions about the ability of the vaccines to actually protect against the “wide variety” of bat-borne coronaviruses. Explains a lot, huh?

So DARPA didn’t like the shady characters EcoHealth was involved with, namely Shi Zheng Li (the notorious “bat lady”). Plus they reiterated their concern that EcoHealth’s proposal was tantamount to Gain of Function research.

Seems pretty clear that, if this DARPA document is authentic and legitimate, DARPA thought EcoHealth was engaged in Gain of Function research on bat-borne coronaviruses.

So that’s where we are at the end of Document #1. Assuming the documents are authentic, what we have here is proof that EcoHealth was seeking to perform Gain of Function research on bat coronaviruses back in 2018.

But their proposal was rejected by DARPA.

Now the question is, did anyone accept their application for funding after they were denied by DARPA?

Before we get into that, here’s the actual proposal by EcoHealth in their own words:

I’m going to be honest here. I have no idea what most of this means. But I did highlight the one sentence where they mention sequencing a spike protein to become similar to a high-risk human coronavirus, and then see if it can infect humanized mice.

Point 2 is most interesting:

“Our work in Yunnan, China shows that: 1) bat SARSr-CoVs exist that can infect human cells, produce SARS-like illness in humanized mice, and are not affected by monoclonal or vaccine treatment; and 2) bat SARSr-CoV host-jump into local human populations is frequent. These viruses are therefore a clear and present danger to US defense forces in the region and global health security.”

It seems like they were already conducting gain of function research prior to applying for the DARPA funding.

But it also sounds like they had seen prior examples of bat coronaviruses making the jump to local human populations–frequently, they add. How badly were those local human populations affected when that happened? It can’t have been too badly considering it was said to happen “frequently” and yet it never once turned into a global pandemic, did it?

Again, I might be misunderstanding all this so I have no idea.

It also seems like EcoHealth is clearly trying to demonstrate the importance of this work to the US military given the frequent mention of troops and “safeguarding the US warfighter.”

I could be wrong, but I’m not aware of any significant US military presence in that region. EcoHealth says it’s the “security concerns in the region” that make it a “potential deployment site for US warfighters.” They do not say that there were “US warfighters” in the region at the time of the proposal; only that the potential existed for them to be deployed there in the future.

Doesn’t exactly seem like urgent, pressing research to me.

Now here’s the letter, dated 8-13-21, from Maj. Joe Murphy of DARPA basically summarizing what the DARPA documents said:

“I’m unsure whether the significance of what I communicated is understood by those that received the report. Decisions with regard to the vaccines do not appear to be informed by analysis of the documents. The main points being that SARS-COV-2 matches the the SARS vaccine variants the NIH-EcoHealth program was making in Wuhan; that the DOD rejected the program proposal because vaccines would be ineffective and because the spike proteins being inserted into the variants were deemed too dangerous (gain-of-function); and that the DOD now mandates vaccines that copy the spike protein previously deemed too dangerous. To me, and those who informed my analysis, this situation meets no-go or abort criteria with regards to the vaccines until the toxicity of the spike protein can be investigated. There’s also information within the documents about which drugs effectively treat the program’s SARS-CoVs.”

In other words, what he’s saying is that Covid-2019 seems awfully similar to the bat coronaviruses EcoHealth and NIH were working on in Wuhan–and that vaccines were ineffective against those viruses.

Murphy is basically saying the military’s vaccine mandate is ill-advised, is what it seems like.

This next bit is apparently a memo sent by Murphy to the DoD inspector general (in other words, internal affairs). If this is authentic and legitimate, it’s pretty crazy, although it does seem a little too “on the nose” (as Tim Pool earlier put it) or “too good to be true”:

“SARS-CoV-2 is an American-created recombinant bat vaccine, or its precursor virus. It was created by an EcoHealth Alliance program at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) as suggested by the reporting surrounding the lab leak hypothesis.”

Okay, here it sounds like Murphy is basing his assessment off of publicly reported information, not his own first-hand knowledge.

“The details of this program have been concealed since the pandemic began. These details can be found in the EcoHealth Alliance proposal response to the DARPA PREEMPT program Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) HR00118S0017, dated March 2018 — a document not yet publicly disclosed.

The contents of the proposed program are extremely detailed. Peter Daszak lays out step-by-step what the organization intends to do by phase and by location. The primary scientists involved, their roles, and their institutions are indicated. The funding plan for the WIV work is its own document. The reasons why non pharmaceutical internventions like masks and medical countermeasures like the mRNA vaccines do not work well can be extrapolated from the details. The reasons why the early treatment protocols work as curatives are apparent.”

Again, it seems a little too good to be true here.

SARS-CoV-2’s form as it emerged is likely as a precursor, deliberately virulent, humanized recombinant SARSr-CoV that was to be reverse engineered into a live attenuated SARSr-CoV bat vaccine. Its nature can be determined from analysis of its genome with the context provided by the EcoHealth Alliance proposal. Joining this analysis with US intelligence collections on Wuhan will aid this determination.”

There’s a lot of terminology being thrown around here that makes it difficult to understand, but I think the general contours are fairly clear.

“The purpose of the EcoHealth program, called DEFUSE in the proposal, was to inoculate bats in the Yunnan, China caves where confirmed SARS-CoVs were found. Ostensibly, doing this would prevent another SARS-CoV pandemic; the bats’ immune systems would be reinforced to prevent a deadly SARS-COV from emerging. The specific language used is ‘inoculate bats with novel chimeric polyvalent spike proteins to enhance their adaptive immune memory against specific high-risk viruses.”

Okay, so apparently the idea was not to better understand the bat-borne coronaviruses so that vaccines for them could be developed; it was to simply prevent the coronaviruses from spreading among the bat populations in the caves, if I understand this correctly.

“Being defense-related, it makes sense that EcoHealth submitted the proposal first to the Department of Defense, before it settled with NIH/NIAID. The BAA response is dated March 2018, and was submitted by Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance.

DARPA rejected the proposal because the work was too close to violating the gain of function moratorium despite what Peter Daszak says in the proposal (that the work would not). As is known, Dr. Fauci with NIAID did not reject the proposal. The work took place at the WIV and at several sites in the US, detailed in the proposal.”

Okay, so now we have the evidence that Fauci was receptive to EcoHealth’s proposal after DARPA rejected it.

Now here’s where the document gets into the specifics of what Covid-2019 truly is and where it came from:

“SARS-CoV-2, hereafter referred to as SARsr-CoV-WIV, is a synthetic spike protein chimera engineered to attach to human ACE2 receptors and inserted into a recombinant bat SARSr-CoV backbone. It is likely a live vaccine not yet engineered to a more attenuated [i.e. weakened, lessened] state that the program sought to create with its final version. It leaked and spread rapidly because it was aerosolized so it could efficiently infect bats in caves, but it was not ready to infect bats yet, which is why it does not appear to infect bats. The reason the disease is so confusing is because it is less a virus than it is engineered spike proteins hitch-hiking a ride on a SARSr-CoV quasispecies swarm. The closer it is to the final live attenuated vaccine form, the more likely that it has been de-attenuating since initial escape in August 2019.”

This last part is hard to understand–is he saying the virus has been getting stronger since its initial escape? If attenuating means getting weaker, then wouldn’t de-attenuating mean getting stronger?

I guess what he’s saying here is that the “virus” that we’re now dealing with was meant to be a vaccine, but for bats–hence “live vaccine.”

So apparently according to this section, the virus is deliberately vaccine resistant? And apparently the aerosolized version is also designed to get around masks. A civet is an animal, a little fox/raccoon-like creature that apparently was also used in testing:

This next section discusses how the virus is cured:

“Because of its (now) known nature, the SARsr-CoV-WIV’s illness is readily resolved with early treatment that inhibits the viral replication that spreads the spike proteins around the body (which induce a harmful overactive immune response as the body tries to clear the spikes from the ACE2 receptors). Many of the early treatment protocols ignored by the authorities work because they inhibit viral replication or modulate the immune response to the spike proteins, which makes sense within the context of what EcoHealth was creating. Some of these treatment protocols also inhibit the action of the engineered spike protein. For instance, ivermectin (identified as a curative in April 2020) works throughout all phases of illness because it both inhibits viral replication and modulates the immune response. Of note, chloroquine phosphate (Hydroxychloroquine, identified April 2020 as curative) is identified in the proposal as a SARSr-CoV inhibitor, as is interferon (identified May 2020 as curative).”

Now Murphy goes into why the vaccines don’t work:

“The gene-encoded, or ‘mRNA,’ vaccines work poorly because they are synthetic replications of the already-synthetic SARsr-CoV-WIV spike proteins and possess no other epitopes. The mRNA instructs the cells to produce synthetic copies of the SARsr-CoV-WIV synthetic spike protein directly into the bloodstream, wherein they spread and produce the same ACE2 immune storm that the recombinant vaccine does. Many doctors in the country have identified that the symptoms of vaccine reactions mirror the symptoms of the disease, which corroborates with the similar synthetic nature and function of the respective spike proteins. The vaccine recipient has no defense against the bloodstream entry, but their nose protects them from the recombinant spike protein quasispecies during ‘natural infection’ (better termed as aerosolized inoculation).”

I have no idea what any of this means. Way over my pay grade. But it sounds like it makes sense!

“Furthermore, the EcoHealth proposal states that a ‘vaccine approach lacks sufficient epitope coverage to protect against quasispecies of coronavirus.’ Consequently, they were trying to make vaccines work by ‘targeted immune boosting via vaccine inoculators using chimeric polyvalent recombinant spike proteins.’ The nature of using a spike protein vaccine with one epitope against a spike protein vaccine with a quasispecies may explain the unusual (and potential detrimental) antibody response amongst the vaccinated to the new COVID variants. Fundamentally, the knowledge the proposal provides signals that the risk of Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) from vaccination should be evaluated with high priority, on top of the reality that single-epitope vaccines will have little effect against SARsr-CoV-WIV, as indicated in the proposal.”

Again, this is way over my head, but it sounds as if the vaccines are a big mistake. Like that part in the movie where the good guys find out that all their efforts against the bad guy are actually making the bad guy stronger.

“The potential for SARsr-CoV-WIV to deattentuate requires immediate attention. Live vaccines have been found to deattentuate in the past. If this is the case, with SARsr-CoV-WIV, then the mass vaccination campaign actually performs an accelerated gain of function for it. Since it is designed for bats off of a human-susceptible SARS-CoV, vaccinating humans against it actually gains its function back towards a more deattentuated human-susceptible form. Improving the SARsr-CoV-WIV spike protein to gain robustness against monoclonal vaccines is one of the steps of the DEFUSE program. The mechanism to improve the SARsr-CoV-WIV spike protein (other than direct engineering) is to challenge it against animals that have spike protein-only antibodies. The attenuated virus will either die or adapt its form to neutralize the spike protein-only antibodies. The intent was to perform this task against humanized mice and then ‘batified’ mice. Instead it was done with the world’s population.”

Maybe this is why omicron is so infectious? I don’t know. This reads like something out of a movie.

“SARsr-CoV-WIV is not meant to kill the bats, but to immunize them. This nature may explain its general harmlessness to most people, and its harmfulness to the old and comorbid, who are in general more susceptible to vaccine reactions. The asymptomatic nature is also explained by the bat vaccine-intention of its creators (a good vaccine does not generate symptoms). Such effects would be expected of an immature vaccine, or a vaccine being reverse engineered from a more virulent form into an attenuated form. The spike protein affect on ACE2 receptors exacerbates the harmfulness in accordance with age and comorbidity. The nature of SARsr-CoV-WIV’s deattenuation will also indicate further virulence, though knowing its nature at last neutralizes the threat as effective treatments can be applied with confidence.”

I’m assuming this is a good thing? Again, this is all way over my head.

Basically in this part he’s saying we are going about it all wrong with Covid and need to begin focusing on early treatment–not vaccination, not prevention.

Major Joseph Murphy’s conclusion:

“Eventually I arrived at a hypothesis that what leaked from the WIV could be a bat vaccine or its precursor. It was feasible that the US would try to avoid a SARS-CoV outbreak by stopping it at its source, not by halting its infections amongst people, but by halting the infections amongst the bats. Americans are creative, even if imprudent, and technologically confident enough to try it. This concept seemed to fit within the PREEMPT program construct as well, as DRASTIC had discovered that some earlier specimens within the USAID PREDICT program were obtained in Africa and sent to the WIV. Moreover, the unusual nature and pathology of the virus hinted that it could be a vaccine or be vaccine-like.

In other words, it was a massive fuck-up by the US borne of over-confidence and recklessness.

“A technological challenge as difficult as inoculating bats in China would be tried at DARPA first. The massive, ‘Manhattan Project’-level of information suppression executed by the government and the Trusted News Initiative indicates that it would be covered-up if something bad happened. The lab-leak hypothesis and squabbling between Senator Paul and Dr. Fauci indicated that the cover up was more localized. Further, an actual cover-up would be more disciplined with its paperwork. So I presumed that unclassified files would be concealed on a higher network and found them where I expected them to be. I understood what they were and their content, pushed the files off-site, and compiled this report.”

I don’t fully get what he’s saying here. Is he saying that there was no attempt at a cover-up at all? Or that Fauci was only really trying to cover his own ass here, and not the whole operation?

Given that so much has been known about the Wuhan lab and EcoHealth and all that for so long, what Murphy is saying here makes a lot of sense.

I don’t know. My brain hurts. It’s been a long day. I had a dental procedure this morning and my mouth was numb for the majority of the day, now it hurts. I’m not firing on all cylinders at the moment.

Try to make sense of all this. The link to the Project Veritas posting is up at the top.

Bottom line: Fauci is scum and should be exiled to Siberia.


  1. Carol says:

    THANK YOU! You transcribed Murphy’s report. It’s a little confusing what he wrote. I agree. I think you should review the report after you recover from the dental procedure. So far, you were the only one who deeply analyzed the text which is super important for alerting us to the global danger that is mass vaccination.

    1. I couldn’t find a decent explanation online so I figured I had to be the one to provide it.
