A Washington Post health reporter told members of a group that spotlighted Dr. Anthony Fauci’s funding of experiments on beagles that they should be concerned about undermining the White House coronavirus adviser’s anti-COVID efforts and causing a backlog of phone calls to the National Institutes of Health.
Article by Art Moore from our news partners at WND News Center.
Independent investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald reported the conversation was part of the Post’s preparations for a “hit piece” on the White Coat Waste Project after the group exposed what he described as “gruesome, medically worthless experimentation on adult dogs and puppies.”
The Post, in fact, has reported favorably on previous exposés by the White Coat Waste Project. Greenwald noted the previous Post reports, continuing through the Trump years, always emphasized the group’s “purely non-partisan agenda and their ability to bring together left and right.”
“Now everything has changed,” Greenwald said. “The government official who oversees the agencies conducting most of these gruesome experiments has become a liberal icon and one of the most sacred and protected figures in modern American political history.”
On Monday, Greenwald reported, White Coat Waste Project Vice President Justin Goodman was on a phone call with Post reporters Beth Reinhard and Yasmeen Abutaleb, who is assigned to the health and COVID beat.
Abutaleb, in particular, “repeatedly demanded to know whether White Coat was concerned that the activism they were doing on these dog experimentation programs could end up harming Dr. Fauci’s reputation and thus make him less able to manage the COVID crisis,” Greenwald said.
“They even suggested that by encouraging people to call the NIH telephone lines to protest this experimentation, they might be making it difficult for people with questions about COVID to get through.”
Greenwald said the Post “has decided to amass a team of reporters to attack the group — the same one the paper repeatedly praised prior to the COVID pandemic — in order to falsely smear it as a right-wing extremist group motivated not by a genuine concern for the welfare of animals or wasteful government spending, but rather due to a partisan desire, based in MAGA ideology, to attack Fauci.”
A bipartisan coalition in Congress now is demanding more information about the experiments. Twenty-four House members — nine Democrats and 15 Republicans, wrote a letter Oct. 24 to Fauci expressing “grave concerns about reports of costly, cruel, and unnecessary taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs commissioned by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., also is confronting the NIH.
Greenwald noted that in 2018, he reported on the dog experiments under the headline “BRED TO SUFFER: Inside the Barbaric U.S. Industry of Dog Experimentation.” His article described “a largely hidden, poorly regulated, and highly profitable industry in the United States that has a gruesome function: breeding dogs for the sole purpose of often torturous experimentation, after which the dogs are killed because they are no longer of use.”
The White Coat Waste Project said documents it obtained showed Fauci’s NIAID directed $424,455 to the University of Georgia in September 2020 to infect 28 beagles with disease-causing parasites.
The Daily Caller reported it obtained documents showing the animals were to be allowed to develop infections for three months and that then they would be euthanized for blood collection.
The White Coat Waste Project told Newsweek the experiments were related to treatment for a tropical disease called lymphatic filariasis. The group argued the tests already had been conducted on other animals.
Responding to the claims, University of Georgia spokesman Greg Trevor argued the research was for a potential vaccine, developed at another institution, that would protect against a disease affecting 120 million people.
Under federal rules, he said in a statement emailed to Newsweek, a vaccine must be tested in two animal species before it can be cleared for human clinical trials.
The Georgia statement said that when NIAID decided to fund the research, the agency determined it needed to be conducted on a dog model, and beagles are the standard dog model.
“Because this disease currently has no cure, unfortunately the animals that are part of this trial must be euthanized. We do not take lightly the decision to use such animals in some of our research,” the statement said.
Georgia’s Trevor said the university followed the humane standards of the Animal Welfare Act, the Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animal and the National Research Council Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, and other guidelines.
“Nearly every advancement in medicine, medical devices and surgical procedures has depended on research involving animal subjects,” the statement said.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder.

Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
