Most of my conservative friends and colleagues have been down in the dumps this year, feeling as if we’re barreling toward the republic’s final days. Lots of gloom and doom out there.
Ever the contrarian, I’ve been coasting along enjoying life, feeling that these are truly heady times we live in. I’m not concussed, I’m not hallucinating, I just tend to look at most things differently than other people.
Perspective helps. I have been hanging around the political circus for so long I take a longer view of things. Yeah, almost everything since March of 2020 has been irritating. I’ve had a sneaking suspicion all along, however, that a lot of the nutjobs like me would eventually be vindicated. That’s not an easy thing to hope for when you’re up against a mainstream press that now does nothing but lie for a living, but I knew that this clown car we’ve been watching for 17 months wasn’t built for the long haul.
It’s having its first big breakdown by the side of the road and it’s delicious to watch.
My colleagues here at PJ Media and I were never big fans of Anthony Fauci. Anyone with a smarm detector could tell that the guy was more full of crap than a constipated rhinoceros.
Those of us who didn’t elevate Fauci to Divine Exalted Expert status in our hearts have been constantly derided. Well kids, as our own VodkaPundit wrote yesterday in his Insanity Wrap, we’ve been right all along about Fauci.
Just last week, I led the Briefing with a headline that said: “Fauci Is Unhinged, Untrustworthy, and Unqualified.”
It appears that I was being uncharacteristically kind.
After Mr. Green got things rolling with the story about Fauci being China’s puppet, Megan took a deep dive into the email story that blew up yesterday:
Dr. Anthony Fauci is getting roasted all over social media after the Washington Post and BuzzFeed released scores of his emails, obtained through FOIA requests. The ones that aren’t heavily redacted tell quite a story. It should come as no surprise to readers of PJ Media that Dr. Fauci didn’t believe the line of crap he sold us about wearing “the typical mask you buy in the drugstore” to protect us from the virus—at least he didn’t in Feb. 2020.
“Masks are really for infected people to protect them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection,” Fauci wrote in an email to Sylvia Burwell, presumably President Barack Obama’s former HHS secretary. “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.”
It would appear that Anthony Fauci was one of the first people to know that Anthony Fauci was full of it.
Of course, no one was allowed to mention that a man who reversed his positions more frequently than a cat licks itself might be wrong about things. As Megan notes, we had our livelihoods threatened for merely questioning His High Holiness the Dalai Fauci and the Church of COVID:
PJ Media has written extensively about how Facebook decimated our traffic and hurt our business over false fact-checks for raising questions about the response to the virus. When our sister sites Townhall and RedState reported that some scientists were questioning whether COVID-19 was engineered or leaked from a lab, they got choked by the Big-Tech bullies and told that we were spreading “fake news.” (Sign up for VIP today to help us stay independent from the censors.)
You’ll forgive us if we gloat a little while this fraud is being exposed.
Two days ago, Fauci’s cult members were rejoicing about the upcoming book he was publishing detailing his pandemic brilliance.
After the email story hit yesterday, that book was — for the moment, at least — sent down the memory hole. Fauci will no doubt spin his way through all of this in a way that is pleasing to his fans. As notorious Fauci foil Sen. Rand Paul said yesterday, the media is predictably giving Dr. ChiCom an assist.
While being proven right about this charlatan brings a small bit of satisfaction, the damage he did won’t soon be forgotten. The fact that Republicans and Democrats listened to everything he said for so long is a national embarrassment. That Democrats still treat him like a god is all the proof anyone should need that they should never be in charge of anything. As I wrote last week, why Trump kept him around will endure as one of history’s greatest mysteries.
I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of Fauci’s unraveling.
the stockholm mask syndrome is an elite propaganda journalism coup. the true number of deaths in US will never be known-one great big fiasco.
Wake up America, YOU have been had and the pedophile will continue to string YOU along. stop drinking the kool-aid of stupidity and enslavement. crooks always get caught, just a matter of time. Best part, the pedophile will defend this deep state terrorist. yes, he is a terrorist, look up the meaning of the work: Hoffman, Chreshaw, VanHip, and other counter terrorist experts will offer you a very good meaning for the word.
ever wonder how must viagra the pedophile will take this weekend???
It began with hydroxychloroquine. Because Trump mentioned its benefits, Demediacrats denounced it and, if you posted something about it on social media, you got “fact checked” or, worse, blocked, banned or disappeared. Then there was shutdowns; are they necessary? Can public life be reopened? Again, disagreeing with the liberal-think view that no meetings, outings, shopping should be allowed draws a “fact check” and, if one persists (or Karen reports one), disappeared again. Next was masks; masks were like wearing a religious icon and if you didn’t present it, you were blasphemous to the religion of Subservience For No Reason. Despite there being NO studies showing the efficacy of masks (but many showing their uselessness), doubting their god-like shield of protection from COVID gets one a “fact check” spanking and, of course, possibly silenced through ban.
We suffered a pandemic that came from China. It came from a place called Wuhan where there is a Wuhan Institute of Virology, where the very virus spreading throughout the world was studied. It would be illogical not to suspect that there was a very good possibility that the lab was the source of the virus. Not proved definitively, mind you, but THAT would be the starting point, if for no other reason than to rule it out. But, again, trying to discuss this possibility (which quickly became a probability) gets the “fact check”/block/ban/exile treatment.
What has been the result? Well, intelligent discussion has been quashed. Discourse and exchange of ideas is banned. Thought is censored. In each of the examples given above, the non-liberal-think option has proven to be the factual reality, only reaching that conclusion has been delayed or sometimes prevented altogether from being reached. By and large, public health and the economy suffered for it.
The same goes for 2020 election fraud, idiot Biden’s rape accusations, revelations of Hunter’s influence peddling (and Joe’s own personal profit from it), BLM/ANTIFA violence, the January 6th riot at the Capital and climate change. Factual conclusions are delayed or prevented due to the left’s obstruction of discussion and presentation of true facts. But, that’s how totalitarians operate.
“What has been the result?”
An intricate, exquisitely balanced and highly vulnerable global distribution network was crashed and the world will be reverberating with the effects of the lockdown for years – if not DECADES. And that little weasel Fauchi gets a 6-figure book.deal out of it!
596 thousand Americans dead of COVID has been one result, with 41% of republicans refusing to be vaccinated. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/health/as-more-americans-get-vaccinated-41-of-republicans-still-refuse-covid-19-shots
Comrade Greggie, have you noticed how the Democrats on the left have quit screaming
“MY BODY, MY CHOICE” lately?
No one is actually preventing anyone from being an idiot, but it will be repeatedly pointed out that they’re idiots.
Thread is about Fauci which of course you can’t muster a coherent comment on so you deflect.
As for being vaccinated, the vaccines were created during the Trump presidency. You claim Trump supporters follow whatever he says. He wants people to get them. Which is in conflict with your point here. It can’t be both ways.
But as Democrats always say, it’s my body, my choice.
Easy for honest people to see. His sicko fants ( see what I did there?) Can’t see what has been what sane people figured was going on all along.
