EGOMANIAC LIAR FAUCI DESERVES CREDIT FOR VIRUS, NOT TRUMP’S VACCINES
By Daniel John Sobieski
Anthony Fauci, who plays a doctor on TV, is and always been a snake oil salesman. He has lied about face masks and everything else since the Chinese Wuhan virus, which escaped from a lab in Wuhan, first appeared. He cost untold thousands of lives by thwarting the full deployment of hydroxychloroquine in the early staes of the virus spread dspite evidence of the efficacy if this veal drug that had been safely used to treat other conditions for decades. I, for one, would trust Dr. Seuss for my medical needs before I trusted Dr. Fauci.
Now, following Joe Biden’s lead, he tells the world that he alone produced the medical miracle, the development of three vaccines in under a year, and that Donald Trump had nothing to do with it. Instead of taking credit for the vaccines, he should take credit for the Wuhan virus, which his NIH helped fund. But Fauci insisted on being the rossyer that would take credit for Donald Trump’s dawn”. As Fox News noted:
Fauci was interviewed on a CNN special that aired Sunday night and the discussion arrived at the vaccine effort. Social media pointed out that Fauci appeared willing to take much of the credit and completely avoided mentioning former President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
"When I saw what happened in New York City, almost overrunning of our health care systems, and that’s when it became very clear that the decision we made on January 10 to go all-out and develop a vaccine, may have been the best decision that I’ve ever made with regard to intervention as the director of the institute," he said in "COVID WAR: The Pandemic Doctors Speak Out."
What do you mean the best decision YOU ever made. You were a member of a task force, one of many members, and Vice President Mike Pence, not you, was the head of hat task force. President Trump was in charge of defeating the Chinese Wuhan virus you, Dr. Fauci, helped create and reminds us that it was he who cut through the red tape and the regulations and he who mobilized and funded the industrial vase to produce and distribute the vaccines:
"I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful 'shot' for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all," read a statement from the former president earlier this month. "I hope everyone remembers!"
Not with Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, and the lamestream media spinning their fables. Yet facts are stubborn things and the fact is that Donald Trump, not Anthony Fauci or Joe Biden, is the rooster entitled to yake credit for this dawn.
The great Mark Levin, appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Thursday night after Biden’s speech, shredded the falsehoods Biden spewed out to a fawning media and misled audience. As reported by BlazeMedia:
LevinTV host Mark Levin shredded President Joe Biden's speech to the nation on the progress made to end the COVID-19 pandemic as "the most disgusting, propagandistic speech" any politician has ever given on Fox News Thursday….
"In seven weeks' time this man will have killed the virus. Joe Biden, 50 years in the Senate, not one profound thing. Joe Biden, who had to cheat his way through law school. Joe Biden, who was plagiarizing from people, even as a senator. And little did we know, he's not a doddering old fool, an egomaniac, and a narcissist taking credit for the work of Donald Trump and all these other people. He has been working like no president in American history! He is the modern-day Jonas Salk," Levin said, referring to the virologist and medical researcher who developed the first successful polio vaccine. "He's Thomas Edison! We've never had a president like this; he's fantastic!"
"Let me tell you something about this guy Biden," Levin continued. "He's a liar, he's a plagiarist."
Levin accused Biden of taking credit for former President Donald Trump's work with Operation Warp Speed to fund the development and distribution of a vaccine against the coronavirus in record time.
"The Trump administration, last summer, before we had a vaccine, just in case one of these would work, contracted and paid for 800 million doses to cover 400 million people," Levin said. "On Dec. 23, when only Pfizer and Moderna had received emergency authorizations, the Trump administration went in and they ordered another 200 million vaccinations. Where do you think these vaccines are coming from? You think they're coming from Joe Biden in the basement? They didn't have any idea what the hell was going on. ... In the end, before Donald Trump left office, he had contracted for enough approved vaccines to inoculate 550 million people."
He went on to say:
This speech that Joe Biden gave is the most disgusting, propagandistic speech that a demagogue, even a politician, has ever given. It is pathetic. And you'll notice he and his spokesperson Psaki never tell us exactly what they've done and exactly who's done it. That is so different from the Trump administration.
This is so appalling. This man has exploited this pandemic like no politician has ever exploited a pandemic. When he's sitting in his basement eating his oatmeal that's dripping on his loafers, what does he do? He accuses President Trump of killing hundreds of thousands of people when it's Trump who gets the testing done, when it's Trump who's getting the ventilators and the respirators, when it's Trump who's getting the PPE, when it's Trump who's bailing out fools like Cuomo with hospital beds and so forth and so on.
There was no mention of rhe Wuhan virus’ origins in a Chinese lab, that China ad its stooges at the World Health Organization lied about th virus, its transmissibility as well as its origins, refusing to label it a pandemic, while deliberately letting it spread worldwide through international air travel while locking down internal travel from Wuhan.
There was no mention of Biden calling Trump’s speedy travel ban “xenophobic”,, a ban even the sainted Dr. Fauci said saved intold thousands of lives. As for Dr, Fuci y was he who told us that wearing a mask was not needed, that it was largely a security blanket that made the wearer feel better. Biden’s selective memory placed al blame on President Donald J. Trump, who developed the vaccine Biden was inoculated with before he took office, a vaccine Biden said didn’t exist.
Biden praised Dr. Fauci and said we should listen to him and his “science”, which we did, to our sorrow. Fauci has made many meandering and conflicting prognostications over time. Tucker Carlson on his Fox News show not long agp asked Dr. Marty Makary, Ptofessor of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University what he thought of Fauci’s performance thus far and his assessment was not good:
He is a very nice gentleman. He's a good laboratory virologist. But you know, in terms of preparing this country, he missed it.
He missed this one. For two months from January 15th when we had our first case confirmed walking around in the United States on U.S. oil until March 15th, with the country latching on to every word he says, he never once prepared this country with anything beyond simple hygiene and basic virology lessons.
He went on the media every day, on every show. Never once did we hear, let's get ready with more PPE. Let's build up our stockpiles. Let's stop nonessential travel. Let's get more swabs. Let's build up capacity with reagents and testing.
So, that was a big miss, and I don't know whether or not to blame him because we all make mistakes, or the entire country putting their faith and stock in one doctor.
Ouch. His pronouncements have been dangerously and consistently inaccurate as when he assured that the coronavirus was nothing to worry about and we should just get on with our lives. As The Hill reported on January 26::
Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Sunday the American public shouldn’t worry about the coronavirus outbreak in China.
“It’s a very, very low risk to the United States,” Fauci said during an interview with radio show host John Catsimatidis.
“But it’s something that we as public health officials need to take very seriously... It isn’t something the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about. Because we have ways of preparing and screening of people coming in [from China]. And we have ways of responding - like we did with this one case in Seattle, Washington, who had traveled to China and brought back the infection.”
Or how about his sage advice on masks and the now-you-need-them now-you-don’t flip-flop of the so-called “experts”. As Dr. Fauci discussed the matter on CBS’ “60 Minutes” on March 8:
When it comes to preventing coronavirus, public health officials have been clear: Healthy people do not need to wear a face mask to protect themselves from COVID-19.
"There's no reason to be walking around with a mask," infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci told 60 Minutes.
While masks may block some droplets, Fauci said, they do not provide the level of protection people think they do. Wearing a mask may also have unintended consequences: People who wear masks tend to touch their face more often to adjust them, which can spread germs from their hands.
Coronavirus was nothing to worry about. There was no need to wear face masks. Fauci has been the Pied Piper of economic and medical misinformation. Then he changed his mind and decided we needed to shut down the world’s greatest and booming economy, Never mind the health costs of the lockdowns for neither Biden nor Fauci care. Never mind the suicide, the domestic violence, the drug and alcohol abuse from closed schools, shuttered businesses that will never reopen, lives destroyed in order to save them. Never mind, now you can wear two, three, many masks and everything will be just fine and if it isn’t you can blame Trump.
Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, has recently confirmed two things that I wrote about a year ago, that the Chinese Wuhan virus likely escaped from a Chinese lab where bats were brought from their distant habitat to the Wuhan Virology Lab for so-called “gain-of-function research and that Dr. Anthony Fauci got around a U.S. ban on such research by helping to issue an NIH grant funding the same dangerous research in China.
As I wrote a year ago, part of the funding was funneled through a left environmental front group calld the EcoHealth Alliance. As reported by Breitbart News:
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that the federal government provided funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for researching bat coronaviruses.
“Through our research and some great researchers out there working in various levels of the press, they have discovered that through the NIH, we did have grant dollars that went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Ernst said in an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily….
“So yes, we have actually subsidized research at the Wuhan lab — how scary — and for a number of years we actually had U.S. diplomats that were warning us about the dangers associated with this lab, and yet we were subsidizing it,” Ernst stated….
The National Institute of Health (NIH) sent at least $600,000 to China’s state-run virology laboratory in Wuhan via EcoHealth Alliance (EHA), a left-wing nonprofit based in New York City that alleges a link between “climate change” and pandemics. EcoHealth Alliance failed to disclose the money it sent to the Chinese government’s Wuhan laboratory came from an NIH grant, the Daily Caller reported.
Back in April, 2020, Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz asked an obvious question, one that has not come up at all in the mainstream media’s echo of the Harris-Biden administration’s blaming of President Donald H. Trump for the Chinese Wuhan coronavirus pandemic – why was the Wuhan Virology Lab a grantee of the National Institutes of Health, of which Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is a member, and a recipient of $3.7 million to study coronavirus in bats?
Fox News analyst Steve Hilton has done the heavy lifting in unearthing the truth about the virus origins in the Wuhan Virology Lab, and Dr. Fauci’s role in the research that created the Wuhan Chinese virus. In a series of broadcasts Hilton detailed Fauci’s fascination with “gain-of-function” research – jiving a virus fetures and transmissibility it doesn’t have – as something wirth the risk.
Fox News’ Steve Hilton shared an investigation that breaks down the origins of the coronavirus, and not only links it back to U.S. commissioned research, but also to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The host of the “The Next Revolution” told his viewers that the evidence uncovered “points to the most likely cause of the pandemic and it’s worse than anything that we have heard so far.”
Highlighting a study 10 years ago in the Netherlands involving ferrets, which have respiratory systems that operate similar to humans, Hilton said researchers “were trying to see if the virus that starts out without the ability to be transmitted through the air can eventually gain that ability.”
“This led to the creation of an entirely new type of scientific research made possible by advances in gene technology,” he said. “It was called gain of function virus research. The idea was to replicate in a lab what had been done with those ferrets — to take the virus and manipulate the genetic code to make it stronger and powerful. The virus would gain new function, hence the name.”…
The great risk being if a highly contagious virus managed to escape the lab, it could cause calamity — much like the world is seeing today with COVID-19.
Hilton shared that the Obama administration put a moratorium on the controversial research.
“Despite the controversy surrounding this type of research,” he said, “it always had one steadfast champion, a leading figure in the world of infectious diseases, Anthony Fauci. His institute funded that first ferret study. At the time he cowrote an op-ed in the Washington Post describing the research as “a risk worth taking… important information and insight can come from generating a potentially dangerous virus in the laboratory.”
“Shortly before the Obama Administration’s ban on gain of function research in 2014, Dr. Fauci commissioned … a project to assess the risk of new coronaviruses emerging from wild animals like bats — one of the aims was to see what viruses can infect animals and humans,” Hilton said.
The Fox News host said that while the Obama administration stopped the research, Fauci “continued on by subcontracting it” to the NY based EcoHealth Alliance.
Sharing what he called a “crucial step that have never been reported,” Hilton noted that EcoHealth Alliance then subcontracted the gain of function piece to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The rest, as they say, is history. Dr. Fauci found a way around a U.S. ban on this deadly research by subcontracting it out all the way to his friends in Wuhan, China, and the lab where it escaped to unfect the world.. He arguably broke the law, the spirit if not the letter. Dr. Fauci is arguably culpable in the deaths of over half a million Americans.
The deadly research might have gone on anyway without NIH-Fauci funding, but he knew about it, could have exposed it, could have stopped it, or at the very least told us the truth about it.
As it turns out, Fauci’s NIH was funding dangerous research in Wuhan while the state Department was warning the a global pandemic could leak from the lab, something Chinese scientists said was likely in a South China University study paper. A pandemic study commission formed by the British government concluded that the lab leak could no longer be dismissed out of hand as just another tin-foil hat conspiracy theory. Neither should we. Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci has some ‘splainin’ to do.
