Cashing Out: Fauci Hints of Major Post Government Payday

Posted by M. C. on September 14, 2022

Government Health bureaucrat keeps next gig a secret, citing “government ethics.”

Fauci — in between the usual obnoxious morality signaling and endless bouts of total hypocrisy — made it clear that he was not retiring, but moving outside of the public sector, where he is not restricted by government ethics rules.

By Jordan Schachtel
The Dossier

Anthony Fauci isn’t done yet. The 81 going on 82 year old lifetime bureaucrat is leaving Government Health, but there’s a few things that he wants to do before calling it a career, and everything seems to point to a massive payday in 2023.

In a new interview with Government Executive magazine, Fauci — in between the usual obnoxious morality signaling and endless bouts of total hypocrisy — made it clear that he was not retiring, but moving outside of the public sector, where he is not restricted by government ethics rules.

“There are a few things that I would want to do outside of the realm of the federal government while I still have the energy and the motivation and the good health to do that,” Fauci said in the interview.

When Fauci announced his retirement a few weeks ago, The Dossier took notice of the peculiar language selected by the NIAID chief.

The relevant portion of his statement reads:

“I will be leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career.”

Now we know that this was very purposeful rhetoric. The nation’s highest paid federal official is taking his “talents” to the private sector.

Covid RIP… and Ron Paul was Right.

Posted by M. C. on August 13, 2022

…In a similar vein, and almost under the radar, the CDC just announced that everything they had been demanding and telling us for the past two plus years has been a lie. It doesn’t matter if you stand six feet away from people, it doesn’t matter if you are vaccinated or unvaccinated. You don’t need to quarantine. Kids can stay in school if someone around them has contracted the ‘rona.

The CDC and the thugs around them are pretending that this is something new, that they suddenly understand “the Science” better. They will not admit that they were lying and manipulating all along in pursuit of power and money…

As he wrote in the earliest days of the Covid scare, when the “experts” were shutting the country down:

If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. … People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic...

Fauci is hopping mad about the courts

Posted by M. C. on April 23, 2022

Not everyone is happy that we’re not wearing masks on airplanes anymore.

Some people are saying it’s too risky to take the masks off. But that means they’re assuming the masks do anything in the first place, and they clearly don’t. We’ve observed the uselessness of masks for a very long time now. That anyone at all is still clinging to them is astonishing.

In case you’d like to buttress your own case against them, here is the definitive masks-don’t-work episode of the Tom Woods Show:
The Fauci response to the decision is worth hearing, because it says so much:

“[I’m] both surprised and disappointed, because those types of things really are the purview of the CDC. This is a public-health issue. And for a court to come in — and if you look at the rationale for that it really is not particularly firm. And we are concerned about that, about courts getting involved in things that are unequivocally public-health decisions. This is a CDC issue. It should not have been a court issue.”

We already knew that’s how Fauci felt about restraints on him or on “public health” at large, but it’s refreshing to hear him state it so clearly.

We can’t have legal recourse against these people because they’re looking out for what’s best for us.

This is how every dictator speaks. Dictators rarely say: “I’m ruling over you because I’m an evil bastard.”

Not to mention: so-called public-health experts have been embarrassingly wrong about masks again and again. Their so-called studies amount to isolating a narrow period of time in which a masked area had better results than an unmasked area. But when you zoom out and look at the entire Covid period we’ve lived through, that pattern no longer holds. They are trying to snow the public. There is no other explanation for behavior like that.

Even someone like CNN medical commentator Leana Wen, who went so far as to favor mandatory vaccination for interstate travel, has said that cloth masks — which Dr. Fauci still defends — are nothing more than facial decoration. But we’re supposed to believe that enough unanimity exists on masks that challenging them is unthinkable?

Fauci’s star keeps fading, as fewer and fewer people care about his recommendations.

It’s about blankety-blank time.

If you took my advice, on the other hand, then (1) you’ve avoided masks because you know they’re useless, and (2) you spent a little time yesterday away from the crazies who hate you and think nothing of ruining your life, and instead did something enriching: you learned about how to create the kind of membership business I myself have three of, and which are an excellent way to create a comfortable side hustle for yourself for when the SOBs come after you again.

For those of you who may not have time for a three-day workshop on the subject, my old podcast guest Stu McLaren is offering a one-session summary version this weekend.

Reserve your spot, or AOC wins:

The White House Now Says It Never Really Wanted Lockdowns

Posted by M. C. on February 9, 2022

Instead, these people will move on to pushing their new version of lockdownism: vaccine passports and pariah status for the disobedient. Whether they worked or not, lockdowns have clearly fallen out of favor so much that the Biden administration won’t even admit to supporting the idea. That’s a victory for friends of freedom and human rights. The next stop is to strike a similar blow against vaccine mandates.

Ryan McMaken

Last Friday, a reporter asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki to respond to the Johns Hopkins covid study showing lockdowns provided no real benefit in terms of disease prevention.

In response, Psaki dodged addressing the study directly, but then pivoted to claiming that the Biden administration had never pushed lockdowns. “We are not pushing lockdowns,” she insisted. “We’ve not been pro-lockdown—most of the lockdowns actually happened under the previous President.”

#BREAKING: | Press Secretary Psaki responds to Johns Hopkins Study that says lockdowns had little to no effect on curving Covid mortality.

“We are not pushing lockdowns, we’ve not been pro-lockdown — most of the lockdowns actually happened under the previous President.”— El American (@ElAmerican_) February 4, 2022

We have now reached the point in the media and political narrative where the party of lockdowns realizes lockdowns are increasingly unpopular and so now claims it never supported lockdowns at all.

But how can Psaki get away with saying this? We all know that Joe Biden has always supported lockdowns. Well, that’s not quite it, and she’s not completely wrong. By the time Biden was actually sworn in as president, he had already stopped pushing for lockdowns as a continued anticovid option.

On the other hand, it is certainly true that as late as early November 2020, high-ranking Biden advisors were still holding up lockdowns as a possibility that fall and winter. For example, on November 11, 2020, Dr. Michael Osterholm, a member of Biden’s Covid-19 Advisory Board, suggested the country might require a “lockdown for 4 to 6 weeks” and recommended the US government spend additional trillions to “pay for a package right now to cover all of the lost wages for individual workers.”

Osterholm also referenced an August 2020 column he cowrote with Minneapolis Fed president Neel Kashkari in which the authors concluded, “To be effective, the lockdown has to be as comprehensive and strict as possible.”

For his part, Biden was keeping lockdowns very much on the table at least as late as August 2020. Biden declared in a joint interview with Kamala Harris that if covid numbers increased again “I would shut it down. I would listen to the scientists…. We’re going to do whatever it takes to save lives.”

By November, however, the administration appears to have shifted to a policy of using lockdowns more as a threat than as a likely plan of action. This position was also reflected in the comments of Zeke Emanuel, a long-time supporter of draconian lockdowns who also remained a Biden advisor in November. Earlier in 2020, Emanuel had advocated for long-term lockdowns, suggesting lockdowns would need to last for eighteen months or more. Yet by November, he instead insisted that whether or not the additional lockdowns would take place would depend “on what we do now.”

In other words, if enough people wore masks and get vaccinated, then the administration wouldn’t be “forced” to push for full lockdowns again. This position was already stated quite clearly by Anthony Fauci in August, when he told an audience:

I believe strongly and I’ll say it very clearly: We do not have to completely lock down if we do things right. And if we do these things right I believe we can open up the economy, get the employment back, get people out of the doldrums of being locked down—if we do it prudently, carefully, and the way the guidelines say.

For Fauci, you don’t need lockdowns if—and that’s a key “if”—everyone does exactly what Fauci tells them to. In any case, Fauci still wasn’t giving up on lockdowns into late November, stating it was “too early to say” if lockdowns could be ruled out.

In spite of this, by November 19—facing a tough election battle—the administration was openly saying it was not planning on trying to implement lockdowns again but with the subtext being that this was contingent on enough of the population getting vaccinated

Indeed, in her own disavowal of lockdowns this past Friday, Psaki pushes this very line of reasoning stating that the “president’s approach has been using the tools we have to prevent [lockdowns].” Translation: So long as vaccines and mask wearing work, lockdowns won’t be necessary. Nowhere in those words, however, is there an admission that lockdowns do more harm than good or that they are unacceptable. No, it appears the administration can have it both ways. It will say it isn’t for lockdowns while simultaneously insisting that lockdowns could be triggered by not “using the tools” that “prevent” lockdowns.

So, Psaki is correct that once Biden had been inaugurated into the White House, there was no general drive from administration officials for lockdowns. The focus had shifted to masks and vaccines.

Today, this fact allows the administration to claim that lockdowns are mostly something that “happened under the previous president.” Indeed, Donald Trump did little to prevent lockdowns and did much to provide political cover for state governors wishing to impose lockdowns. It was on Trump’s watch that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) pushed heavily for lockdowns. Trump gave a daily nationwide platform to prolockdown technocrats like Fauci and Deborah Birx. Trump claimed to disagree with these bureaucrats—whom he could have easily fired—but Trump was either too craven or too incompetent to intervene. Instead, dozens of state governors imposed lockdowns on their populations, helped by the fact they could simply say they were following guidelines put out by Trump’s CDC.

Thanks to Trump’s weakness, Psaki is right that lockdowns are something we can all remember from the Trump era.

Legally, of course, it’s unlikely any administration—whether Trump’s or Biden’s—could actually get away for long with directly imposing any sort of nationwide lockdown if it wanted to. The federal courts have already sent a pretty clear message that police actions like lockdowns are prerogatives of the states’ governments.

Moreover, with gubernatorial races in thirty-six states this November, only candidates in the absolutely bluest blue states would even consider telling the voters “as governor I am poised to impose new lockdowns at the first sign of crowded hospitals. Eight weeks to flatten the curve!” That might still work in Europe or China, but it’s hard to see much support from American voters at this point. 

But as we’ve seen, we shouldn’t expect those who supported lockdowns to admit states with lockdowns showed no better results than states that barely locked down at all. Rather, the lockdown party will just split hairs to show they never really pushed lockdowns at all or that “the science changed.”  Instead, these people will move on to pushing their new version of lockdownism: vaccine passports and pariah status for the disobedient. Whether they worked or not, lockdowns have clearly fallen out of favor so much that the Biden administration won’t even admit to supporting the idea. That’s a victory for friends of freedom and human rights. The next stop is to strike a similar blow against vaccine mandates.

Guess Which Term Fauci Wants To Abandon – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on January 6, 2022

By Tom Woods

From the Tom Woods Letter:

Ron DeSantis was ridiculed for suggesting that someday the definition of “fully vaccinated” could change, and people could lose their jobs for not getting a third mRNA shot.

I don’t know why the lizard people bother ridiculing those who speculate about where the dystopia is going, because everything they speculate about winds up coming to pass.

There are already booster requirements all over the place.

And now we have this from Fauci: we’re not going to use the expression “fully vaccinated” anymore. Why? Because it commits what we laughingly call our public health establishment to determining a definitive endpoint.

He said, “We’re using the terminology now ‘keeping your vaccinations up to date,’ rather than what ‘fully vaccinated’ means. Right now, optimal protection is with a third shot of an mRNA or a second shot of a J&J.”

But with every booster, compliance falls significantly.

With every school closure — nearly two years into this nonsense — more normie parents decide they’ve had it.

With every throttling of a Joe Rogan episode, an audience of (literally) tens of millions gets exposed to previously excluded perspectives.

Does this mean we win?

Well, we have a lot more fighting to do, that’s for sure.

But there are a lot of us. And our numbers are growing, while theirs are falling.

This may seem cheesy to some, but it’s my approach right now:

I am planting some big flowers — for you:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!…sort of Watch “Killjoy Fauci: ‘No Hugging Or Kissing On New Year’s!'” on YouTube

Posted by M. C. on December 31, 2021

Fauci is again in front of the camera, hectoring people to stay home on New Year’s – and whatever they do, DON’T hug each other to greet the New Year. What’s wrong with this guy? Also today – is Biden purposely withholding a proven Covid treatment? Florida’s Surgeon General says so. And…is a massive purge of Marines who have religious objections to the vaccine a way to “honor the troops”? Every single request has been denied. Fraud?

Fauci Lied and Thousands Died… RPI Year-End Update

Posted by M. C. on December 30, 2021

Everybody is talking about this Ron Paul Liberty Report!
Liberty Report In the News: Fighting for You! Dear Friends:

As 2021 winds down to its last couple of days, I am writing to toot our horn a bit. You see, the Ron Paul Liberty Report has spent this year – and the previous year – in the trenches fighting what can only be described as the greatest assault on Americans’ civil liberties since slavery.

All of a sudden we saw that our house of liberty was built on sand – that the elites made billions with their boots on our necks while the rest of us suffered. Never again!

You have probably received many solicitations for end-of-year support from organizations that put their finger to the wind to see when it’s safe to come out in favor of liberty and freedom. As you know, Ron Paul has never played that game. Please make your year-end, tax-deductible donation
to the Ron Paul Institute!
From the very first moment they started ramping up an authoritarian response to a virus, Ron Paul was calling their bluff. He published “The Coronavirus Hoax” on the Ron Paul Institute website in March, 2020, just as President Trump was following his malevolent covid advisors toward lockdowns and tyranny.

It certainly was not the “cautious” thing to say – and we received some nasty notes from a few supporters – but Ron Paul always speaks the truth regardless of whether it is popular at the time.

In this prescient March 2020 article he wrote: Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. Did he call this whole thing or what? Governments use “crises” to frighten the people into submitting their liberties to the “authorities” in exchange for protections that governments never deliver. And how well did the government protect us from illness and death from this coronavirus? About as well as it protected us against a terror attack on 9/11. Help RPI Continue to Grow! Senator Rand Paul said it best as a guest on a recent episode of the Ron Paul Institute’s Ron Paul Liberty Report: I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now because [Fauci] has deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics. The mainstream media is doing a great job amplifying Sen. Paul’s Liberty Report statements – of course with the intention of ridiculing the Senator.

But we’re past that. Their game is up.

We’ve travelled down this road together these past two years. Dr. Paul and I scouring the media every morning to try and bring the latest bit of truth to our growing viewership. As the mainstream media loses viewers by the millions, the Ron Paul Liberty Report GAINS viewers by the millions!

Our influence is growing thanks to your generous support. But we cannot continue to produce a top-quality news and analysis program every day without you. Behind the camera there are so many expenses that we must meet if we are to continue.

And we are not just the Ron Paul Liberty Report! This year the Ron Paul Institute held two sold-out conferences, in Houston and Washington, DC, including speakers like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Rep. Thomas Massie! We also held our second Ron Paul Scholars Seminar – a foreign policy boot camp for a terrific group of upper division undergrads and grad students! And don’t forget the thousand-plus articles we publish each year!

Without the Ron Paul Institute and the Liberty Report who would be left to tell the unvarnished truth? 

Time is running out to get all the tax credit for your donation to the Ron Paul Institute –  501(c)3 Charity – for 2021! Please act NOW before midnight on December 31st to keep the Ron Paul Institute and Liberty Report alive and growing in 2022.

The bad guys are not giving in. They are not giving up. We can stop them in 2022…but we need your help!

Please take a moment and make a stand for peace and liberty NOW!

Hope to see all of you at a future Ron Paul Institute event in 2022!
Sincerely yours,

Daniel McAdams
Executive Director
Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity
