Anthony Fauci has evolved from guide to menace in the COVID 19 drama.  He taken more positions than the Kama Sutra and now is an obstacle to the end of the pandemic. I’d like to share with you what has driven me to lose all respect and trust in that charlatan.

His proclamation which in essence said “I am science” was astonishing. It was the marriage of a maniacal ego and a blowhard.

He lied about NIH funding Gain of Function. Then oddly, the NIH removed it from its website.

No documents exist explaining why officials decided to remove the definition of “gain-of-function research” from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, the agency told The Epoch Times.

The NIH site used to include a 232-word definition of the research, but it was removed around the same time the agency disclosed that research it funded in China met the definition.

Fauci dismisses concern about Biden spreading infected illegals- who are neither vaccinated nor tested- all over the country. “That’s a different issue” he says. It’s NOT a different issue. It’s a very important issue. Why we cannot demand anyone entering the country illegally be vaccinated is a mystery and calls for an answer.

Fauci knows nothing about natural immunity. That’s kind of really important. I know people who have contracted COVID and then gotten vaccinated and consequently suffered severe symptoms. In the amusingly named “Science-based Medicine” David Gorski writes

Antivaxxers have long appealed to “natural immunity” as being somehow inherently superior to vaccine-induced immunity, which is apparently “artificial”. This is a trope that comes from alternative medicine concepts about purity and contamination that is now endangering us in the age of the pandemic.

A massive study out of Israel says otherwise. The invaluable Alex Berenson:

mRNA vaccine protection from Covid is far weaker than natural immunity and declines very fast, according to a new study of almost 6 million people in Israel.

During the summer Covid wave, more than 140,000 Israelis who had been vaccinated but not received a booster shot became infected with Covid. Put another way, in just two months, about 1 out of every 20 vaccinated Israelis became infected with Sars-Cov-2.

Natural immunity – the protection following infection and recovery – lasts much longer, the study shows.

In fact, people who had already had Covid once had better protection from the virus more than a year later than people who had been vaccinated only three months before.

The gap was even larger in cases of severe infection.

   

You might remember that a year ago Fauci said that the pandemic would not last much longer.

Certainly, it’s not going to be pandemic for a lot longer, because I believe the vaccines are going to turn that around”

Fauci’s statements have a short half-life. So do definitions at the CDC. You know, like the definitions of vaccine and vaccination to fit the propaganda being spewed today:

Social media is calling bluff on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for modifying its definition of the words “vaccine” and “vaccination” on its website. Before the change, the definition for “vaccination” read, “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.” Now, the word “immunity” has been switched to “protection.” The term “vaccine” also got a makeover. The CDC’s definition changed from “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease” to the current “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” Some people have speculated that the unannounced changes were the CDC’s attempt to hide the fact COVID-19 vaccines are not 100% effective at preventing coronavirus infection. U.S. Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky said in a popular tweet the CDC has “been busy at the Ministry of Truth.

A FOIA request to CDC got this response:

In one more mind-numbing useless act, Anthony Fauci did his best to again scare the hell out of the country.

White House COVID-19 advisor Anthony Fauci warned that U.S. hospitals will be soon overwhelmed by Omicron variant patients in the coming weeks although South African health officials have said the newly discovered variant has produced a low number of hospitalizations so far.

Omicron, Fauci said Thursday, will likely become the dominant strain within a “few weeks.”

“Besides the toll of suffering and death which will inevitably go up if in fact we have that convergence in the winter months of flu and Omicron and Delta, we could get our hospital systems overwhelmed,” Fauci said during an event hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

He wasn’t alone. The Daily Mail has also done its best to stimulate adrenergic frenzies. Title of the article:

America faces a ‘viral blizzard’: Omicron already makes up 20% of all COVID cases in major cities like New York and Seattle, expert warns as confirmed cases of the new strain jump 31% in 24 hours and millions of Americans now face being infected


It begins with

  • Dr Pavitra Roychoudhury tells DailyMail.com that her team projects the Omicron variant to account for 20% of cases in Seattle, and likely in other major cities as well 
  • Dr Michael Osterholm told CNN that he expects millions of Americans will be infected with the virus in the coming week

My first reaction is “so what?” Then they become, as Scott Atlas might say, a Plague on our House. They pile this on

  • The U.S. has suffered a 31% increase in daily cases and 23% increase in deaths over the past two weeks, with Connecticut and Maine both suffering increases of around 150%
  • In New York City, nearly 8% of Covid tests are coming back positive and the city has emerged as a potential early Omicron outbreak site
  • New cases in the UK have increased by 30% over only a one week span, as health officials warn the nation’s health care system could be overrun if the surge continues
  • Denmark has recorded 9,909 cases of the Omicron variant, only trailing the UK in confirmed cases of the new strain

Note how they conflate all of the strains and intimate that the omicron strain is killing people.

It isn’t. The symptoms have uniformly been mild.

I know Boris Johnson claimed that one person has died but I’m not buying it. As always, the devil is in the details.

Sadly, at least one patient has been confirmed to have died with Omicron,” he told reporters, a day after warning the country was facing a “tidal wave” of infection.

“Died with” is not “died from.”

Snopes said this

Snopes reached out to Johnson’s communication team asking for more information about the purported fatality, including whether the person had underlying health conditions and where they died. We have not received answers to those questions, but we will update this report when, or if, that changes.

That’s rather important. For instance, for what was this person hospitalized? Was this person hospitalized for a different strain and omicron was simply a superinfection? Were there any comorbidities? Would this unfortunate person have passed without omicron?

And finally, the definition of “fully vaccinated” is more fluid than genders. Fauci says it will soon be three injections and you can bet there will be more.

We do not need Fauci. We need data. What we need is someone who knows that data. I’d sooner heed Alex Berenson than Anthony Fauci.

Alex knows the data and he is honest.

As I said before, omicron is the variant that could end this pandemic by crowding everything else out. It causes mild symptoms and few hospitalizations. Fomenting a panic over omicron is not just wrong, it’s malpractice.
