A new report revealed top officials at Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) are receiving millions of dollars in secret royalty checks.
An investigative report by Open the Books , an American nonprofit organization that describes itself as a transparency group devoted to uncovering disclosed government spending, found more than $134 million was paid to 1,600 NIH executives, scientists and researchers by third-party groups. The payments were revealed after a Freedom of Information Act request. WATCH: OpenTheBooks case study on the top recipient of 3rd-party royalty payments at NIH.

Republican lawmakers are aware of this report and they are calling for a deeper inquiry. “The NIH is in the midst of, as you know, awarding grants for research,” said Rep. John Moolenaar (R-Mich.). “Is also in the position of sort of evaluating or giving opinions on drugs that work or don’t work. And the idea that scientist may be benefiting financially from work that they have done at NIH, that creates to me an appearance of a conflict of interest.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
