Fauci and Biden Sow Chaos and Confusion on Virus

AMAC Exclusive

fauci

Late last week, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released new guidance declaring that fully vaccinated individuals generally no longer need to wear masks indoors or outdoors. While conservatives welcomed the news and many liberals reacted with befuddlement and hostility, the decision once again underscores the Biden Administration’s confused, ad-hoc, and constantly changing COVID messaging—the very thing that Biden so frequently accused President Trump of causing last year.

Indeed, the Biden Administration’s current set of COVID policies is so inconsistent and self-contradictory that it often seems they are just making it up as they go along. Biden was recently accusing Republican governors who lifted restrictions of “Neanderthal thinking,” and a little more than a month ago that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said she had a sense of “impending doom” regarding the nation’s efforts to combat the virus.

Yet when it comes to inconsistent and improvisational COVID messaging, no one can surpass the king of COVID confusion, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Last week, Fauci declared that the abolition of mask mandates was not a contradiction of previous policy but instead followed “evolving science” on the virus—although no examples of this supposedly new scientific evidence were forthcoming. Fauci then added to the confusion by declaring, apparently on his own authority, that young children would still be required to wear masks in school. (Young children generally do not experience severe illness from the virus and are not thought to be a major vector for transmission.) Then, just yesterday, Fauci suggested that it was “reasonable” for businesses to maintain mask mandates even for vaccinated Americans, in blatant defiance of the CDC’s recent guidance.

Despite Fauci’s reputation in the media as a clear and knowledgeable communicator, he has, in fact, been one of the most prominent sources of misinformation throughout the pandemic. After initially declaring in April of last year that the virus was “not a major threat to the people of the United States” and that it was “not something the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about,” Fauci repeatedly urged Americans not to wear masks early in the pandemic. Later, Fauci admitted that he had believed all along that masks were effective but said he had wanted to ensure that supplies would be reserved for medical professionals. In other words, he asserted that he had the right to lie to the public for what he believed to be their own benefit. If Fauci is correct that masks effectively contain the spread, then the cost of his misinformation as the pandemic worsened may be incalculably large.

Fauci has also steadily moved the goalposts on the percentage of the population that will need to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. Earlier this year, he said herd immunity would be achieved when 60% were vaccinated; in recent interviews, he has spewed out numbers as high as 85%.

Questions about the reliability of Fauci’s statements came to a head last week at a Senate hearing on the origins of the virus. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, a medical doctor and outspoken critic of mask mandates and government lockdowns pressed Fauci on the theory that the COVID-19 virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. After repeatedly dismissing such claims previously, Fauci now says he cannot rule out the theory. “I do not have any accounting of what the Chinese may have done,” he said. “I’m fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China.”

Fauci was also forced to backtrack on his comments about the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding for the Chinese lab under his leadership, clarifying that while the NIH does send money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the funding is not for “gain of function” research, a laboratory technique that intentionally makes pathogens more dangerous and transmissible. Senator Paul contested this point, pointing out that gain of function research in Wuhan was indeed funded through one of Fauci’s grants.

Meanwhile, Democrats who have constantly been trumpeting the call to “listen to the scientists”—namely Fauci—are suddenly eager to defy CDC guidance in the wake of Biden’s new masking policy. Several states, including New Jersey and Massachusetts, will continue to keep mask mandates in place. Even in states like Minnesota, where Democrat Governor Tim Walz lifted the statewide mask mandate last week, liberal city leadership in Minneapolis and St. Paul are refusing to listen to the scientists and will continue enforcing their punitive and coercive mask rules.

It has not been Democrats but rather Republican governors such as Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas who have been ahead of the scientific curve in reopening throughout the year. Contradicting both the advice and the predictions of the “experts,” these states have not seen a rise in COVID-19 cases or deaths since lifting restrictions and are on the whole faring far better in their economic recovery.

Thanks to President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, nearly 275 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have now been administered, and 85% of Americans 65 and older are fully vaccinated. Cases in the United States are continuing a steep decline, even as many other countries struggle to produce vaccines and stem rising case numbers. Despite what some left-wing media voices are saying, the country is undoubtedly rounding the corner on the virus—whether Democrats want to “listen to the scientists” or not.

He did that in the mid 1980s with the AIDS epidemic. He won’t be prosecuted. He has too many high level friends.

Anthony Fauci is a ” pathological liar… ” He has been involved in Covid virus research for years He was directly involved in having the research moved out of Ft. Detrick, here in the states & moved to Wuhan, China for safety reasons. They knew way back then how dangerous this stuff was when experimenting with animal to human transmission of this virus. Both Fauci & Bill Gates himself knew long ago that the next pandemic could very well be a Covid virus that kills millions of people… So what did they really know that the rest of us didn’t at the time?
Now enter the ” EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENTS ” for this virus & NOT FDA approved. It had already killed animals before using humans as the next guinea pigs. READ the label on these so-called vaccines, that alone should convince anyone to NOT take this poison…
FACT: There is NO vaccine for common cold Covid viruses. This particular virus has a 99.9% survival rate with children. Under NO circumstances should this stuff be administered to children…
Never forget, this is a EMERGENCY EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT for a flu like virus…

From a legal definition, it is not a ‘vaccine’, the mechanisms are different. This one alters DNA, and it only reduces symptoms.

On another website there is a banned video of Fauci admitting that masks are just for “imagery “ and just like several conservative commentators have said masks are worthless in combatting the virus. Liar and deceitful gone to seed.

Anthony Fauci has been a controversial figure ever since he helped Robert Gallo steal the patent for the HIV test from the French in the 80’s. His machinations cost thousands of lives then. He cares little for life, he only cares about power and money. It is a shame he is such a seductive snake. Trump should have brought in outsiders early on and thrown out the snakes in his back yard.

If memory serves me correctly, Trump did take both Fauci & Birx off the daily Covid-19 briefings…
Trump brought in better qualified people in the end…
However I agree, Fauci is a snake & he is PROFIT motivated in all of this, that includes the pharmaceutical side of the equation & Bill Gates deserves a mention also…

After watching America’s Frontline Doctor’s and listening to Robert Kennedy, I decided NOT to receive this experiment drug vaccine and I am 72 years old. I now know that Quercetin and zink will act the same as Ivermectin which will increase the body’s defense system along with Lipsomal Vit C and D3/K2…I also exercise. If a person (without serious health conditions) will take these supplements, we don’t need to be Guinea Pigs for big pharma/ Fauci, Bill Gates OR the Biden administration. It is all about fear tactics and control. I am not a sheep being lead to the slaughter even if Bill Gates wants to euthanize us seniors. I GOT NEWS FOR YA. I AM ALIVE AND HEALTHY W/O THE VACCINE.!!

You are free to take or not take the vaccine but don’t listen to either Fauci or Kennedy.

Fauci has been all over the place and Kennedy, well all that I can say about Kennedy is that if he’d had a microphone in 1955, we’d still be dealing with polio.

Agreed. You are free to choose what works best for you. The only person to listen to is your own doctor.

BTW – I have heard of three possible deaths from blood clots by younger women who took the Johnson & Johnson vaccine but couldn’t find any articles about deaths linked to the Pfizer vaccine.

The problem with listening to your own doctor Dan is that most of them don’t know the truth about the experimental vaccine. That’s why they call it a “practice”. This is why WE need to get informed and use our own judgement. As you said: free to choose what works best for you.

I know I will die someday but not like this through medical malpractice like my one brother did a few years ago. He had severe pneumonia and was bleeding from his mouth. He was also developmentally handicapped . The doctor said he didn’t have any “quality of life” so they starved him to death.

Lol! So two life-long career bureaucrats, one mentally impaired and the other being what would be described as a self-serving media **ore, giving conflicting or completely inaccurate information to the public has resulted in what you call chaos and confusion. Is that really considered news these days? The whole point has been to keep the public off balance and needlessly anxious, while the administrative state returns things back to the “business as usual” state of affairs before President Trump. While the public is fixated on “What will Fauci or Biden say today about the virus?”, those behind the scenes and running the show called the Biden administration are undoing virtually every positive thing done in the last four years.

Today the Biden administration dropped the hold the Trump administration placed on the new natural gas pipeline between Russia and Germany. Seems the Biden administration isn’t so against pipelines, as long as they don’t benefit the American economy or its people. So more money for Putin to finance his expansionist plans for Europe and beyond, while Putin also gets an even greater strangle hold over western Europe’s energy supply. Giving him more political power to influence European leaders. All this while the United States is watching Russia massing thousands of troops and weapons on Ukraine’s boarder for Putin’s next land grab. Which we are supposed to protect the Europeans from of course.

For those not able to keep up, it’s called creating a distraction (the virus and all those conflicting announcements) via misdirection people. Try to focus on the real game being played out, instead of focusing on the shiny ball of useless and conflicting Covid recommendations coming out of D.C. The Democrats are going to keep this “crisis” alive right through the 2022 midterms and beyond if they can.

I feel like this has been a scam since the very beginning. I do believe there was a new virus strain just like we’ve had many many times in the past. However, I further believe a group of globalists used this as an opportunity to see just how far they could manipulate all of us. We were never given clear and accurate information from the beginning but a vaccine was developed and distributed in record time. One of this makes sense and defies all common sense and logic. Are we just a giant petrie dish?

I agree the globalists HAD to get rid of President Trump for their own survival, this deadly pandemic which is 99% survivable was the way to shut down the world’s economy and create chaos.

I believe the Globalists in conjunction with the CCP and a select contingent of Dem Representatives who traveled to China in the Fall of 2019 conspired among themselves to unleash this virus upon the world for the express purpose of preventing the re-election of Donald Trump in a landslide. He had to be stopped by any means necessary.
This virus did NOT just happen to spontaneously appear in the Fall of 2019. The Communist Chinese had been experimenting with it and augmenting its properties for many years at the WuHan Lab as a potential weapon of bio-warfare. It was determined between the power brokers of the world at those meetings in the Fall of 2019 that the time had come to unleash this bio-weapon and the rest is history. The few Chinese ‘whistleblowers’ who were involved with this research at the WuHan Lab who tried to sound the alarm are either dead or ‘missing’. We were able to hear from a few of them before they died or ‘vanished’.

China had to get rid of President Donald J. Trump, he was too effective in MAGA and the world suffered. America is now behind the “8 ball” and we have a dysfunctional Administration to “give away” our wealth, so we can be EQUAL with other Nations and Divide us Americans. The Tower of Babel comes to mind.

The scam involving the virus hasn’t caused me any chaos or confusion, I just treat it like any other contagious illness such as the flu, measles, mumps, chicken pox, etc. I’ve gone on with my life as normal throughout the panicdemic. The greatest inconvenience has been caused by others, especially business shutdowns or lockouts. If a mask has been “required”, I either have violated the demand or gone someplace else. If you fear something related to the virus, it should be the vaccines only given an emergency authorization for use rather than actual FDA approval.

I saw on One America News yesterday that the truth has come out – the actual number of direct Covid caused deaths in the U.S. is only 9 – that’s NINE – percent of the grossly overstated total of 500,000.

It’s so mysterious that a normal flu season in America infects 38 MILLION or more. And yet, miraculously, there have only been about 12,000 ‘cases’ for the 2020 ordinary flu season. Go figure! How can that possibly be? Does COVID attack the ordinary virus and wipe it out so it can take over? Methinks hospitals received a premium for treating a patient with a COVID diagnosis that they wouldn’t have received for the regular flu. Voila! ‘Suddenly’ any and all illness or condition became COVID to avail themselves of this extra remuneration.
Fall off a ladder? Killed in a motorcycle accident? Gunshot wound? Heart attack after years of heart disease? Stage 4 or 5 cancer? COPD or Emphesema? Morbidly obese with asthma, uncontrolled Diabetes and/or heart disease? Must have been COVID that caused your demise.
I hope someone finally compares the statistics over a 20 year period for the 10 or more major causes of death before COVID entered the scene and after to see how many were replaced with COVID as the cause of death.

Do you think that the companies that sprung up making masks and sanitizer have something to do with the length of this “pandemic”? If we don’t require masks and don’t need so much hand sanitizer and other chemicals to “sterilize” things, what happens to these companies?
