Anthony Fauci Facing Quiz Over NIH Funding for ‘De-barking’ Beagle Puppies
Bipartisan legislators demand answers from Fauci on alleged puppy experiments
My cmnt: Here is some background on Dr. Josef Mengele for those of my many readers too young to know who he was:
Approximately 30 physicians served at Auschwitz while Mengele was assigned to the camp. As a required part of their “rounds,” medical staff performed “selections” of prisoners on the ramp. These selections determined who from among the mass of humanity arriving at Auschwitz would be retained for work and who would perish immediately in the gas chambers.
Mengele is known as the “Angel of Death,” or sometimes as the “White Angel,” for his coldly cruel demeanor on the ramp. He is associated more closely with this “selection duty” than any other medical officer at Auschwitz, although by most accounts he performed this task no more often than any of his colleagues. The association is partially explained by his postwar notoriety. The pervasive image of Mengele at the ramp in so many survivors’ accounts has also to do with the fact that Mengele often appeared “off-duty” in the selection area whenever trainloads of new prisoners arrived at Auschwitz, searching for twins.
Mengele became interested in using twins for medical research through his mentor, Verschuer. Verschuer himself was famous for experimenting with identical and fraternal twins in order to trace the genetic origins of various diseases. During the 1930s, twin research was seen as an ideal tool in weighing the factors of human heredity and environment. Mengele and his mentor had performed a number of legitimate research protocols using twins as test subjects throughout the 1930s. Now, at Auschwitz, with full license to maim or kill his subjects, Mengele performed a broad range of agonizing and often lethal experiments with Jewish and Roma (Gypsy) twins, most of them children.

My cmnt: In my observation over the past year and a half Dr. Fauci has shown himself to be a sociopath. I have any number of posts on this site documenting Fraud Fauci’s indifference to the truth and the suffering of Covid-19 victims. Fauci was the bane of the homosexual community when AIDS broke out in the 80s. They had to go to the underground to get the treatments they needed to save their lives while Fauci insisted upon waiting for a vaccine (sound familiar?). Check out this post for the truth about the Covid-19 remedials HCQ and Ivermectin that have saved thousands of lives and could have save hundreds of thousands more but for the demagoguery of Anthony Fauci and the democrats. Dennis Prager testified here to the effectiveness of these medicines in saving his life and his children after they contracted Covid-19.
My cmnt: It has been well documented that mass murderers often start out torturing small animals as children. An indifference to animal suffering is a sign to indifference to human suffering which Fraud Fauci has certainly shown – from unnecessary national shutdowns of small businesses (while leaving Walmart and such open) to the unnecessary shut downs of public schools and playgrounds.
Twenty-four members of the House of Representatives signed a letter to Fauci, who is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of NIH.
The letter was prompted by the nonprofit group White Coat Waste which obtained documents under the Freedom of Information Act that appear to show NIAID spent $1.68 million in taxpayer money for experiments on beagle puppies in a lab in Tunisia.
Those experiments reportedly involved testing drugs on the animals and in some cases, they were “de-barked” through a procedure called a cordectomy.
The lawmakers, led by Republican Representative Nancy Mace of South Carolina’s 1st congressional district, wrote to Fauci on October 21 with a number of questions about the matter that they want to be answered by November 19.
“We write with grave concerns about reports of costly, cruel, and unnecessary taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs commissioned by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases,” the lawmakers wrote.
Pointing to White Coat Waste and media reports, the members of the House wrote that “from October 2018 until February 2019, NIAID spent $1.68 million in taxpayer funds on drug tests involving 44 beagle puppies.
“The dogs were all between six and eight months old. The commissioned tests involved injecting and force-feeding the puppies an experimental drug for several weeks, before killing and dissecting them.
“Of particular concern is the fact that the invoice to NIAID included a line item for ‘cordectomy.’ As you are likely aware, a cordectomy, also known as ‘devocalization,’ involves slitting a dog’s vocal cords in order to prevent them from barking, howling, or crying,” the letter went on.
“This cruel procedure – which is opposed with rare exceptions by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, and others – seems to have been performed so that experimenters would not have to listen to the pained cries of the beagle puppies. This is a reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds,” the lawmakers said.
The letter noted that this does not appear to be the only instance where NIH-funded experiments on beagles. On its website, White Coat Waste says there have been four such experiments in four different locations around the world.
The lawmakers want to know how many drug tests have been performed on dogs since January 2018 and what the cost has been. They also want to know why these tests have taken place even though the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require new drugs to be tested on dogs, among other questions.
In addition to Mace, the following members of the House signed the letter: Cindy Axne (D-IA), Cliff Bentz (R-OR), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Rick Crawford (R-AR), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Scott Franklin (R-FL), Andrew Gabarino (R-NY), Carlos Gimenez (R-FL), Jimmy Gomez (D-CA), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Fred Keller (R-PA), Ted Lieu (D-CA), Lisa McClain (R-MI), Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), Brian Mast (R-FL), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Scott Perry (R-PA), Bill Posey (R-FL), Mike Quigley (D-IL), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), Maria Salazar (R-FL), Terri Sewell (D-AL) and Daniel Webster (R-FL).
From The New York Post:
Dr. Anthony Fauci is facing calls from a bipartisan group of legislators to respond to allegations that his National Institutes of Health division provided a grant to a lab in Tunisia to torture and kill dozens of beagle puppies for twisted scientific experiments.
In a letter to the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) and 23 colleagues addressed their “grave concerns about reports of costly, cruel, and unnecessary taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs.”
“According to documents obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request by taxpayer watchdog group White Coat Waste Project, and subsequent media coverage from October 2018 until February 2019, NIAID spent $1.68 million in taxpayer funds on drug tests involving 44 beagle puppies,” the Thursday letter reads.
The White Coat Waste Project report claimed that the researchers locked the dogs in cages with hungry sandflies so that the insects could eat them alive.
Some of the pooches were also allegedly injected with disease-causing parasites.
“The commissioned tests involved injecting and force-feeding the puppies an experimental drug for several weeks, before killing and dissecting them,” lawmakers wrote
The bipartisan group also raised concerns about allegations that scientists slit dogs’ vocal cords so that they wouldn’t bark during the experiments.
“This cruel procedure — which is opposed with rare exceptions by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, and others — seems to have been performed so that experimenters would not have to listen to the pained cries of the beagle puppies. This is a reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds,” the letter said
In addition to Mace, the letter was signed by Reps. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), Cliff Bentz (R-Ore.), Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), Rick Crawford (R-Ark.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Scott Franklin (R-Fla.) and Andrew Garbarino (R-NY), among others.
