Fauci’s Lies Exposed… Jim Jordan Goes Ballistic Over Scientists’ Lab-Leak Flip-Flop | ZeroHedge

Posted by M. C. on March 9, 2023

So three days after they say it came from a lab, they changed their position, and the only intervening event was a conference call with Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins. Again, a call that Mr. Redfield (CDC Director at the time) was not allowed to be on … And then three months later, Shazam! They get 9 million bucks from Dr. Fauci. Why, isn’t that something?”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was on fire Wednesday during the first COVID select subcommittee investigating the origins of Covid-19, where former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said he was “sidelined” from internal debates over the origins of the virus, and that former White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci didn’t appreciate Redfield’s support for the theory that it emerged from a lab.

“This was an a priori decision that there’s one point of view that we’re going to put out there, and anyone who doesn’t agree with it is going to be sidelined,” said Redfield. “And as I say, I was only the CDC director, and I was sidelined.”

The 71-year-old Redfield told Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) that his support for the lab leak theory likely prompted his exclusion.

Former CDC director Robert Redfield

“I think I made it very clear in January [2020] to all of them why we had to aggressively pursue this,” he said. “And I let them know as a virologist that I didn’t see that this was anything like SARS or MERS. … And they knew that was how I was thinking.”

Jordan then focused the conversation to two top Fauci advisers – Dr. Kristian Andersen and Dr. Robert Garry – who suddenly changed their stance on lab leak theory. The two notably emailed Fauci on Jan. 31, 2020 where they suggested that anomalies in the virus pointed to a non-natural origin. According to Anderson, the virus had “unusual features” that “(potentially) look engineered,” and that other scientists “all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.”

Jordan went on a tear…

Guess what Fauci said in his deposition

Posted by M. C. on December 1, 2022

“We spent seven hours with Dr. Fauci—this is a man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon ‘the science, follow the science’—and over the course of seven hours, we discovered that he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his COVID response,” Landry said.

Why isn’t Fauci in the gray bar hotel?

Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry recently had a chance to question Anthony Fauci in a suit involving censorship of dissident scientists.

And what do you know: Fauci just can’t seem to remember anything.

“We spent seven hours with Dr. Fauci—this is a man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon ‘the science, follow the science’—and over the course of seven hours, we discovered that he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his COVID response,” Landry said.

“It was extremely troubling to realize that this is a man who advises presidents of the United States and yet couldn’t recall information he put out, information he discussed, press conferences he held dealing with the COVID-19 response,” he added.

The Epoch Times reports, “Landry declined to provide more details about the deposition until it is made public, which will happen at a future date. But he said officials would be able to take some of what they learned to advance their case.”

Jenin Younes, a lawyer and Tom Woods Show guest who is also representing the plaintiffs, noted that Fauci claimed not to be especially worried about the Great Barrington Declaration, which called for “focused protection” of the vulnerable instead of lockdowns, even though Francis Collins of the National Institutes of Health wrote to Fauci urging a “devastating public takedown of its premises,” and even though Fauci attacked it on several occasions.

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki is scheduled to be deposed on December 8.

One of the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration (and also a party to the lawsuit), Stanford’s Jay Bhattacharya, recently joined me on the Tom Woods Show to discuss the premise behind the case as well as a Soho Forum debate on lockdowns that Jay recently won. (Oxford-style debates have objective winners, because the audience is polled before and after the debate.)

Jay’s eyes have been opened since 2020 about how the health establishment operates. “I was naive,” he confessed to me in our interview.


Also, a quick reminder that I’m holding an event in Orlando — my Practical Liberty Summit — in January for all those of you who already have plenty of libertarian theory in your brains, but who’d now like to take action. Everything from how to win in a blue state, how to undo propaganda in people’s minds, how to finance real estate without the bank, how to get physically fit without falling into destructive myths, plus plenty of business and marketing advice, and a lot more.

All practical, no theory.

Plus, entertainment from the great Doc Dixon, the magician who sawed me in half at my 2000th episode event and who fooled Penn & Teller on their “Fool Us” television program.

The event is free for my School of Life members, and open for a fee to non-members:

To Protect Against Nuclear Fallout, Dr. Fauci Recommends Wearing Three Masks | The Babylon Bee

Posted by M. C. on March 2, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Beloved health expert Dr. Fauci has made his way into the spotlight again—this time with new recommendations for keeping safe during a nuclear strike should Putin do the unthinkable. 

“Should we face a catastrophic nuclear war scenario, it’s important to stay protected from all the nuclear fallout,” said Fauci in his trademark Fauci voice. “To keep all the nuclear fallout out of your nose and mouth, you should probably wear at least three masks. Maybe even four masks. The science isn’t clear right now. But I would say at least three masks. Maybe four or five though, just to be safe. Actually, maybe six. And another one over your eyes too.” 

Fauci went on to explain that proper social distancing will also be essential, as it will prevent your nuclear fallout from jumping to another person. “Ideally, everyone should probably have their own personal fallout shelter just to maintain proper distancing,” he said.

Fauci assured everyone that if they follow the science by listening to his every command, “they will be ok. Probably. But also maybe probably not.”

In unrelated news, the NIH has approved $12 million in funding for experiments on irradiated mutant creatures.

The sinking ship that the Covid-crazy rats are fleeing

Posted by M. C. on January 8, 2022

Tom Woods

There’s a particular sinking ship from which the rats are ostentatiously fleeing:

The “keep schools closed” ship.

Now before I get lectured to, let me note: I couldn’t possibly be a bigger opponent of soul-crushing schools that teach kids propaganda.

But I promise you: that’s not the reason all the blue checks have urged us to keep schools closed.

It was all fact-free hysteria, and I’m just flat-out against that no matter what the cause is.

I would never say: “Dr. Fauci is my ally because I don’t like the public school system and he favors closing it.” Dr. Fauci is never my ally, ever.

And the blue checks are reversing themselves on this faster than you can believe.

When the teachers’ unions have lost the blue checks, the polling on keeping schools closed must be horrendous.

I am no fan of Eric Adams, the new mayor of New York, since he favors the evil and useless vaccine passport system, which can never be excused.

But I find it politically interesting that he’s been saying things like this:

“I was a cook. I was a dishwasher. If nobody came to my restaurant when I was in college, I wouldn’t have been able to survive. When you talk about closing down our city, you’re talking about putting low-wage workers out of a job. I’m not letting that happen.”

And about schools specifically, in defiance of the teacher’s unions:

“We want to be extremely clear. The safest place for our children is in a school building. And we are going to keep our schools open….

“We’re not sending an unclear message of what is going to happen day to day. I’m going to tell you what’s going to happen day to day. We are staying open….

“I know there’s questions about staffing, I know there’s questions about testing — there’s a lot of questions. But we’re going to turn those question marks into an exclamation point. We are staying open.”

Let’s also take a look at Ashish Jha, who’s currently at Brown University. He’s been downright nasty through this whole ordeal — compare his conduct to that of the decent and civilized Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford, for instance — and has placed impossible obstacles in the way of school reopening: tying it to rates of “community spread,” demanding onerous measures to ensure “physical safety,” even while mountains of evidence piled up that schools were not unsafe places.

(Sweden’s 1.8 million children all managed to avoid death, and their teachers did better than other professions, while having open schools without masking.)

Then Jha demanded the masking of students, and even told Congress: “No expert that I know of doesn’t believe masking is helpful for kids.”

Sure, Ashish. I’m sure you’ve never, ever encountered an expert who advises against masking kids — even though I myself, not even a member of the medical community, can somehow name you a whole slate of them.

And now, just this week, watch the pivot.

Here’s Jha on Twitter on January 4:

At every turn during this pandemic
We have deprioritized children
And their well-being
The educational losses and mental health tolls will be felt for their lifetimes
Great @DLeonhardt thread on how American kids are in a crisis
And many don’t fully grasp how bad it is

It’s one thing to offer a sincere and profound apology for your errors in the past. It’s quite another all of a sudden to claim to care about the well-being of children when you yourself have been part of the dystopia that has targeted them.

Now, this has been altogether too much discussion of schools without at least a nod to homeschooling, so let me say this:

The wackos are in charge, imposing crazy and useless so-called safety measures, and (as usual) teaching wacko propaganda.

But homeschooling seems too hard. I completely understand that.

Hence the Ron Paul Curriculum, featuring courses by me. It’s self-taught, so parents don’t have to run themselves ragged. It gives students something other than eyeroll-inducing left-wing propaganda. And it teaches them how to communicate effectively, how to run a home business, and how to manage their finances — subjects you’d think they’d be taught in school, but aren’t.

Not to mention, at the link below (and only at this link) I throw in some valuable bonuses you can’t from anybody else who promotes it:

Fauci says he can’t rule out indefinite COVID booster shots but says one will hopefully suffice | Daily Mail Online

Posted by M. C. on August 22, 2021

By Adam Schrader For Dailymail.Com and Reuters

Dr. Fauci warns Americans may face having booster shots INDEFINITELY and says fully-vaccinated ‘breakthrough’ infections could still cause long COVID: FDA approves third dose for those with weakened immune systems

  • Fauci said ‘there are a lot of factors’ that go into making decisions such as whether people will routinely have to get vaccinated against COVID-19
  • He said researchers have already started conducting studies giving boosters to people who have already been full vaccinated
  • Those studies have shown hopeful promise that future booster shots beyond a third jab may not be needed
  • But Fauci said it was too early to say whether people would have to have the shots regularly, as many do with the annual flu jab  
  • Fauci said ‘the only way’ the public health officials will become certain whether continued booster shots will be needed will be by conducting further studies

Fauci In The Hot Seat: Did He Lie To Congress?

Posted by M. C. on July 22, 2021

“Everyone’s talking about yesterday’s exchange between Dr. Fauci and Sen. Paul over NIH funding of gain-of-function research in China. Fauci was furious at the suggestion that he lied…but it seems Senator Paul has the receipts. Also today: women’s soccer fail, police-defunding mayors spend a fortune for their own security, and more…”

Erie Times E-Edition Article-CWS debacle could be new normal

Posted by M. C. on June 27, 2021

A disaster? This is baseball we are talking about. The only disaster will be to NC State’s and sports writers bottom line.

If a free person chooses not to be a guinea pig the largest medical experiment in history, I say more power to them. The NCAA can write any rules they want. If that includes mandating chemical injections in order to play, acquiescence is up to the athlete’s discretion.

Once past the high school level big time sports is all about big time money. Sports is just another branch of the entertainment industry. If unvaxxed NC State players are banned from participation this is likely a blessing in disguise. They can concentrate on, get this, getting an education and doing something constructive.

Dan Wolken

Columnist USA TODAY There is nothing satisfying about a baseball team’s season ending via a vague press release just after 2 a.m. on the day they were supposed to be playing Vanderbilt for a spot in the College World Series championship.

But in our still fraught world of COVID-19 and its intersection with sports, it cannot be too surprising that NC State found itself in such a horrible position Saturday, having been tested and contact traced to the point where the NCAA was forced to remove them from the tournament.

This situation is particularly ominous right now, at a time when a large number of college and professional athletes are still refusing to be vaccinated, risking not just their own and other people’s health but putting teammates in position to suffer the kind of consequences that cost the Wolfpack a chance to win a national championship.

Regardless of how you feel about the vaccine, the protocols that local governments have put in place, the NCAA, any professional league, the CDC, Dr. Fauci or whatever politician of your choosing, this is how it’s going to go for the foreseeable future. Don’t want to get vaccinated? Your choice. But understand what you’re risking: A positive test that, at any time, could ensnare others and wreck historic seasons.

Maybe NC State’s unvaccinated players who triggered this situation – two of them tested positive, according to a report from – were well aware of that risk the entire time. But it sure didn’t seem like vaccination was a big priority or talking point for coach Elliott Avent, who said in a news conference Friday that encouraging players to get the vaccine wasn’t in his job description.

He also told a reporter who asked whether he was vaccinated that he didn’t want to talk politics, which shows you how off the rails this entire thing has gotten when a life-saving vaccine is now assumed to be part of the political polarization discourse.

‘My job is to teach them baseball and make sure they get an education and keep them on the right track but I don’t try to indoctrinate my kids with my values or my opinions,’ Avent said. ‘We talk about a lot of things but these are young men that can make their own decisions.’

Indoctrination? C’mon, coach. Not only is that disingenuous on its face – Which college coach has ever said it’s not part of their job to teach life lessons and impart good values? – it’s just plain dumb.

And it’s going to get dumber as the year goes on because, at least anecdotally, there are still a lot of football teams both at the college and NFL levels struggling to get most of their players vaccinated. In fact, according to some college administrators I’ve spoken with, there are a significant number of teams haven’t even hit 50% – which means they’re entering the season with a competitive disadvantage.

The biggest takeaway from the College World Series should be that NC State isn’t a fluke event. It’s the canary in the coal mine for what we’re likely to see this fall as football teams with low vaccination rates see positive tests pop up, sidelining unvaccinated and perhaps some vaccinated players who did the responsible thing and still got unlucky.

And yes, there are plenty of examples so far of vaccinated athletes testing positive because the science tells us that vaccinated people could indeed have a small amount of the virus in their system and not get sick from it.

We’ve seen that with multiple New York Yankees testing positive early in the season, Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul missing playoff games despite being vaccinated and now reportedly four NC State players who were vaccinated.

But the key thing to remember as we go forward is that vaccinated players at the College World Series weren’t being regularly tested until the unvaccinated players started testing positive.

For the next several months and potentially longer than that, there isn’t going to be any other way to conduct team sports. If you’re vaccinated, you don’t have to be tested if you’re not feeling sick. If you’re unvaccinated, you’re going to be tested all the time because you could be at significantly more risk of getting sick yourself or spreading the virus.

That’s the deal we’re going to have to make to get back to normal. It’s a pretty reasonable one, particularly within the context of a team that is sharing locker rooms, traveling together, eating together and practicing in close proximity.

Nobody wants a repeat of the 2020 season when a lot of teams, particularly in college, had so many positive cases that they fell below the threshold to conduct practices or safely play in games. The schedule was pure chaos, and some teams could never get on track because of the lack of bodies.

Amazingly, we have a way out of that: A vaccine that is safe and widely available. And yet, a certain percentage of athletes – many of whom take all kinds of supplements and powders to enhance their performance, no questions asked – are going to make the conscious choice not to take it.

We’ve now seen the consequences when that choice is applied to a team concept. It’s not just the unvaccinated players that pay the price, but the vaccinated players, too.

The awful situation with NC State this weekend didn’t have to happen. But it seems almost certain it’s going to happen again and again.

Watch “Dr. Fauci…On The Ropes?” on YouTube

Posted by M. C. on June 1, 2021

Mad Scientist-No Joke

This has not been a very good week for President Biden’s chief Covid advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci. After ridiculing the theory for months that the virus may have escaped from a Chinese lab, Fauci admitted it was possible. After adamantly denying funding “gain-of-function” experiments in China, he was forced to admit that he funded them indirectly, through a cut-out. As his possible culpability looms large, is Fauci about to exit the stage? Also today, a new study confirms antibodies generated by a Covid infection may last a lifetime.

McDonald’s Drive Thru Backs Up For Miles As Dr. Fauci Keeps Changing His Mind

Posted by M. C. on June 1, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C.—A beltway McDonald’s caused a major traffic jam yesterday, as the drive-thru backed up for miles while Dr. Fauci spent several hours trying to decide the right order.

“Ooo now does the Big Mac come with nuggets? No? Let’s do nuggets then, let’s do nug…NO!! No, Big Mac it is. Do I want fries? Well, that’s a hard one to settle,” said Dr. Fauci, as the line began to expand behind him. 

As one shift change bled into another, employees took turns listening to Fauci waffle back and forth. “Perhaps the dollar menu is the right call, the safe bet. Yes, a McDouble and a McChicken, that’s it! They’ll be calling that the Fauci special in no time, that is, unless that deluxe chicken sandwich really is all it’s cracked up to be. Chicken! Yes, chicken!” he exclaimed, as the line stretched back into Virginia.

Fauci at one point declared the quarter-pounder to be “the worst sandwich of all time, a real anti-science disaster,” before moments later calling it “a delicious burger and mankind’s greatest achievement and anyone who does not order it is a bigot.”

As another McFlurry machine broke, signaling the changing of days, Fauci continued vacillating. The delivery truck arrived with “cicada nuggets” to re-stock, and still, the decision continued.

At long last, an exhausted Dr. Fauci declared, “Ok, ok, I’ve made up mind. Final, clear answer. Quarter pounder with cheese meal, the old classic. That’s it. It’s over.”

“Whoa, wait – you guys serve breakfast all day??”
