You know, I’ve never actually worn flip-flops before. I just have a pair of stinky sandals, which stinks about half as much as the mess that Dr. Fauci is finding himself in.
If you somehow have been living under a rock for the past year and a half having fun playing your fav online slots, then you might not have realized that we, the denizens of Earth, have been suffering through the world’s mildest deadly global pandemic it’s ever seen- depending on who you ask.
Every aspect of Covid was politicized from the onset. It really didn’t help that it hit the United States during the most polarized election in American history since at least the Civil War. President Trump’s policy and Covid response were constantly criticized as a sticking point of Biden’s campaign. And by the Media. And the establishment elite. And everyone who considers themselves left of Lenin. But I digress…
One of the most important figures regarding America’s (and even the globe’s) response to Covid-19 was a certain Dr. Fauci. If you’re unfamiliar, Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (ain’t that a mouthful?)- or the NIH’s Director of NIAID, for short.
He’s also chief medical advisor to the White House, a hypocrite, a liar, and the figurehead of a Covid-Cult of personality that’s run rampant in the United States. All of which has been thrown into stark light after yet another Leftist Email Scandal, which puts him in the great company of Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden.
The problem with the good doctor is that he hasn’t held a single stable opinion on the matter of Covid since the beginning of the pandemic. He has flip-flopped on everything, sometimes with only a week’s difference between opinions.
He has flip-flopped on whether masks are effective, whether or not the Virus came from a lab, and even whether or not quarantining was an effective way of combating the Virus. You know… those mandatory quarantines we were all forced into at the expense of the economy and our livelihoods…
For instance, masks. A common fashion in China because of the horrific air pollution came to the US as a way of mitigating the spread of Covid-19. At the onset of the pandemic, Dr. Fauci, the NIH, WHO, and the CDC were all advising AGAINST wearing masks! To quote Fauci himself on 60 Minutes, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.
When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences — people keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face.”
But then, he changes his mind and says the opposite! Here’s what he had to say in an interview with The Street, “Masks are not 100% protective. However, they certainly are better than not wearing a mask. Both to prevent you, if you happen to be a person who may feel well, but has an asymptomatic infection that you don’t even know about, to prevent you from infecting someone else,” said Fauci. ”
But also, it can protect you a certain degree, not a hundred percent, in protecting you from getting infected from someone who, either is breathing, or coughing, or sneezing, or singing or whatever it is in which the droplets or the aerosols go out. So masks work.”
So which is it? Why did he change his tune? Did new studies come out that showed Mask Efficacy? The answer is no. In fact, thanks to the Email Leak, we know for certain that Fauci received a notice about a new study that showed the opposite.
Dr. Andrea Learner had this to say to Fauci regarding her study on masks, “Bottom line: generally there were no differences in Influenza Like Illness, Upper Respiratory Infection, or flu rates when masks were used, although when early use and compliance was taken into account, a few times a difference was seen.”
So if the masks had any effect, it was minimal. Not that that was what Fauci was saying on TV. So not only did Fauci have evidence that masks were ineffective, but he also contradicts his public statements in emails sent to friends and colleagues! Quote, “Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection.
The typical mask you buy in a drug store is not really effective at keeping out the Virus, which is small enough to pass through the material. It might, however, provide small protection against gross droplets if someone sneezed or coughed on you.
I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location… money is best spent on medical countermeasures such as diagnostics and vaccines.”
The Lab Theory
It’s interesting how the entirety of the mainstream media has suddenly started changing their tune about this one. Never mind the fact that they have just spent the past year vehemently denying the possibility and even going so far as to label any proponents of the Theory as Racist, Xenophobic, and crackpot conspiracy theorists.
In fact, trying to discuss the evidence that indicated China’s fault in this whole pandemic was liable to get you banned from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube- all the major social media platforms.
In fact, Dr. Fauci was one of the major opponents of this Theory, and his adamant testimony to the contrary was often cited as the justification for denying any discussion of it. More “The Science is settled” type of arguments.
At least, that’s what Dr. Fauci was claiming at the start of the pandemic publically… in actuality, he worried about the possibility with his colleagues.
In an email from Dr. Michael Jackobs to Dr. Fauci, the concern was raised, “We think that there is a possibility that the Virus was released from a lab in Wuhan, the biotech area of china.
We also think that the Virus might be complexed with another organism, such as a yeast or fungus, to make it more sticky. We would like to discuss this with you further. We feel that immediate action must be taken by United States scientists to try to neutralize this threat.”
But on the other hand, Dr. Fauci also received emails THANKING HIM for denying the Lab Theory! For instance, a certain Peter Daszak wrote, “I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for Covid-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
From my perspective, your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’ origins.”
This is very concerning, coming from the man IN CHARGE OF THE INVESTIGATION into the WHO and the ORIGINS OF COVID! Daszak’s organization, EcoHealth Alliance, was also the recipient of a $3.7 Million dollar grant for researching bat coronaviruses, 600 thousand of which went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology- the same Lab that the Theory supposes the Virus leaked from in the first place!
Because that’s not suspicious in the slightest…
Last but not least…
The public tune on the lab theory has recently shifted too. Less than three months ago, perhaps even less than a single month ago, you could and would get banned for supposing that the Virus might have come from a laboratory. Now, mainstream news outlets are suddenly taking the idea seriously for some reason (which I’m sure has nothing to do with the fact that the election is safely behind us…), and these social media platforms have changed their policy.
Because when WE said it, it was a conspiracy theory. But when some botox treated political hack goes onto cable TV and claims the same thing, suddenly it’s worth looking into.
In other words, Dr. Faucii is one such political hack, who says one thing when it’s convenient, and will easily say the opposite when the wind changes direction. He’s not a medical professional. He’s a government stooge- a stooge who earns a higher salary than the President, by the way.
However, he’s just one of many stooges that suckle at the government teat and have taken advantage of the crisis for his own gain. Heck, that’s politics 101: Every crisis is an opportunity. If it bleeds, it leads, and all that.
Throughout this whole pandemic, we the people have been tricked, we’ve been bamboozled, and, quite possibly, backstabbed by our own political establishment for nebulous, moronic reasons that I’m sure Alex Jones-type characters will expound about at length. With politicians like Fauci, it’s not about the truth. It’s not about helping people.
It’s about seeing how much Fauci and friends can get their faces on TV and to use their clout to worm their way out of federal charges for perjury, fraud, and sheer, utter incompetence.
