As we embark on the fifth installment of the Fauci and his proclivity to mislead the country, a recap of every previous flip flop is required to make sure readers realize just how involved this topic is becoming. How many more lies can we expect from him, especially now that the White House, medical community, and media are in cahoots and power together? In no particular order, here is what has been covered thus far:
- Travel Bans
- Asymptomatic Spread
- Mass Gatherings
- Projected Deaths
- Santa Claus
- School Openings
- Vaccine Development
- Urging Calm
- “Nobody Could Do Better”
- PCR Testing
- Vaccine Definitions
- Vaccine Safety
- Vaccine Choice
This is a hellaciously long list, and it is still incomplete. Notice that we still have room to continue writing Part 5. Each of these aforementioned bullet-pointed topics can be reviewed in Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. It is beyond fair to ask why anyone still believes Anthony Fauci is credible. As I wrote in the last installment – or, to be inclusive of the Biden administration’s gender neutrality, installwoment – there are only two possible explanations for the endless parade of lies and misdirections: Incompetence or deceit. There is no third option.
Frighteningly, the Biden White House seems to hold Fauci in higher esteem than ever before, as they have announced his representation of the administration with the World Health Organization. It is fair to say that any global community does not serve the American community first. This is a bad thing. We already saw American tax dollars shipped out of the country to poor countries thanks to the relief bill (for the record, my family pays tens of thousands of dollars in federal income tax and we saw not a penny despite forced economic closures of our businesses), and the WHO is now allocating critical doses of the vaccine to underdeveloped and failing nations first. Once more, the American tax player is on the short end of the Great Reset stick.
Here is Part 5.
Anthony Fauci introduced himself to the American public on a daily basis last spring. It was apparent he was enjoying his newfound fame, and took pleasure in casually joking despite the serious and deadly nature of the virus. This was also evidenced later by his nonchalant discussion of the very fake Santa Claus’s immunity at a time when about 300,000 Americans had allegedly died from the disease. Is it serious or not serious?
The grotesque distortion of seriousness had already arrived much sooner, when last March Fauci was at the press room podium explaining how young people could still enjoy their sex life while meeting people on Tinder or Bumble:
“You know, that’s tough. Because it’s what’s called relative risk…If you’re willing to take a risk—and you know, everybody has their own tolerance for risks—you could figure out if you want to meet somebody. And it depends on the level of the interaction that you want to have..If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, then that’s your choice regarding a risk.”
Let me rephrase the essence of this statement: It is okay to make personal choices in the Covid world. If you are averse to risk, stay home. If you are accepting of some level of risk, do your thing. At least, it was okay back before Covid became entirely politicized.
Despite the ostensibly obvious and straight-forward approach to dealing with risk tolerance (we do this everyday with every decision), Fraudulent Fauci pivoted to make sure that young people everywhere were castigated for living their lives and thus spreading the disease. No mention was ever made of their CDC-announced survival rate of 99.998%. That figure is likely even higher once other factors like preexisting conditions are considered.
In June, the New York Post ran a headline declaring, without equivocation, that Fauci blamed “young Americans for the new coronavirus surge.” What happened to swiping right? By July, with the media pretending the swing state of Florida was an unmitigated disaster, Fauci exhorted young people at bars and beaches that they had a “societal responsibility” and said that they couldn’t think of themselves “in a vacuum.” Of course, Fauci and every other talking head have yet to explain why Florida – home to between four and five million senior citizens – has counted under 25,000 Covid deaths in the span of almost a year. If it were that contagious and deadly, shouldn’t the retirement hub of America manifest the effects? There is also the non-to-so curious case of a drastically lower flu season in Florida, as elsewhere, for 2019-2020 than the year prior.
In the irony of ironies, Fauci took to one of his countless interviews in late December to both cast some shade at the outgoing president and thoroughly embrace the incoming one (whose entire Covid relief plan, mind you, mirrored the former’s). During the course of gabbing about his prodigious scientific acumen, Fauci was asked about skepticism surrounding the vaccine rollout. He responded with this:
“When you have mixed messages, or when you have a situation where scientists of some repute are questioned, then people get confused. So that’s the reason we’ve got to be very consistent as much as we possibly can.”
Did you catch that? Fauci said that the public message needs to be as consistent as possible! This might possibly be the lead self-aware statement ever uttered. Is he aware of his consistencies? I would refer him to my bullet-pointed list above. Nonetheless, it was clear from the remark that Fauci thought little of Trump and his handling of the pandemic.
Blaming Trump for mixed messages only stems from Fauci’s very political involvement in Covid. He was an advisor to the president, not the policy maker. It is asenine to consider only the direct medical repercussions; there are economic, societal, and even indirect medical consequences. Too bad no one cares enough to go digging into the increase in suicides and drug overdoses that came as a result of Fauci’s Covid lockdowns. In listening to Fauci, it is very clear that he expects any president to bend to his will. Biden certainly has already and is therefore a liberating figure for the diminutive doctor. (I only used the term “doctor” for alliterative purposes; I have not once used that word in my five essays).
Of course, this series has already established that Fauci averred that he couldn’t imagine anybody doing more given the situation. That comment from earlier in the year is enough to discredit the later comments. And, contrary to the dig, further examples show that Trump was very much willing to take his advice.
There is a great summation of Trump’s many accomplishments of handling Covid (presumably with the guidance of medical professionals – the “experts”). Transcriptions can’t do it justice; it’s better just to watch. It is only five minutes long, and is worth every second. In short, it comes from a Trump presser last spring as the media was beginning to realize they could use this outbreak as a weapon against the unassailable incumbent president. Trump absolutely makes them eat their own words. I admit, I had never seen this before. Something about a biased media perhaps?
The video can be found right here and is worth the watch.
There are other times (too many, in fact) when Anthony Fauci defended not only Trump personally, but also defended him from the media’s insatiable hatred toward him. Around the same time that the now-former president was obliterating fake news in the video referenced previously, there are then these unmistakably supportive comments that Fauci used to call out CNN for its false headlines of Trump’s policy failures:
“The first and only time that Dr. Birx and I went in and formally made a recommendation to the president to actually have a ‘shut down’ in the sense of not really a shut down but to really have strong mitigation. We discussed it, obviously there would be concern by some that, in fact, there might have some negative consequences. Nonetheless, the president listened to the recommendation and went to the mitigation…The next second time that I went with Dr. Birx into the president and said, ’15 days are not enough. We need to go 30 days.’ … the president went with the health recommendations and we extended it another 30 days.”
I have reread that quote several times. Am I missing the part where Trump was sending mixed messages or shoving the Little Limelighter and his wayward advice aside?
I always end these articles with the naive wish that we have witnessed the end of Fauci flip flops and lies. I already know that’s not true. Stay tuned for Part 6, which covers sports, previous pandemic responses, double masking, and more.
