Townsend shares the story of her sister, who told Townsend that she had done that five times before, although she confessed the truth to the store owner each time. "Sometimes you take matters into your own hands, but it doesn't make it right," says Townsend. "The accountability was there, but at the same time, it's a slippery slope."
Mosely says by making a full disclosure, Townsend's sister has rectified the situation.
"Your sister had shown accountability and responsibility by making full disclosure. That brought her out of any moral obligation," says Mosely. "Because the store owner could have said to her, 'you used it, I want to be paid at least something for the use of my garment,' but apparently [the owner] didn't say it, [and] accept the item from the person who made a full disclosure."
The same can't be said with National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci.
Fauci has repeatedly insisted that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), NIAID's mother agency, has funded nothing that could reasonably be considered gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China. (Related: Fauci LIED, he and his agency DID fund illegal gain-of-function research in Wuhan.)
Dr. Richard Ebright, a biosafety expert at Rutgers University, tells conservative magazine National Review that NIH has funded research in Wuhan that "matches the definition of 'gain-of-function research of concern' for which federal funding was paused in 2014-2017."
The Intercept has also published new documents – including a grant proposal – describing research that Ebright again deems gain of function. "The viruses they constructed were tested for their ability to infect mice that were engineered to display human type receptors on their cell," says Ebright.
On Dec. 19, 2017, the NIH announced that it would resume funding gain-of-function research involving influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV).
Carrie Wolinetz, head of the NIH Office of Science Policy, said: "Gain-of-function experiments allow us to understand how pandemic viruses evolve, so that we can make predictions, develop countermeasures, and do disease surveillance."
Four years prior, the NIH had suspended funding gain-of-function studies involving influenza, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. Back then, over 200 scientists signed the Cambridge Working Group declaration arguing for a cessation of experiments creating potential pandemic pathogens "until there has been a quantitative, objective and credible assessment of the risks, potential benefits, and opportunities for risk mitigation, as well as comparison against safer experimental approaches."
Fauci has also lied about the amount of taxpayers' money given to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) to study bat coronaviruses.
He has said during a Senate questioning that $600,000 was donated to the WIV in the span of five years, but documents obtained by conservative activist group Judicial Watch has revealed that the actual figure was $826,277.
Despite all the lies and deceptions, the White House continues to defend Fauci. (Related: REVEALED: White House visitor logs reveal Fauci/Klain situation room meeting after gain of function moratorium.)
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is indignant when asked if President Joe Biden would consider relieving Fauci of his positions as NIAID director and chief medical adviser to the president.
"NIH has never approved any research that would make a coronavirus more dangerous to humans, a reminder that there are previous and different coronaviruses than the existing one we're battling," says Psaki, pointing out that the genomes of the coronaviruses described in the NIH research are different from the virus that has caused the ongoing pandemic.
At least, Townsend refuses to condone the actions of her sister.
"I don't think you can make a wrong, right. Wrong is wrong, and right is right," Townsend says. "The Bible clearly states that we're tested on little things, then that leads to big things. Little things are where we learn to be sensitive to Holy Spirit."
Townsend shares a lesson from a sermon that she has heard before: "We don't just pull the weeds, we plant seeds."
"In our life, in our homes and our businesses, we're busy pulling out what's obviously bad or obviously wrong. But at the same time, we have to be very careful what we are planting and allowing to grow," says Townsend.
It's still not clear what kind of seeds the Biden administration is trying to plant and allow to grow, but the pieces of evidence suggest that Fauci is clearly a weed – a deeply rooted one.
