Ever wonder how Dr. Anthony Fauci can appear to be an authoritative source instead of a grubby little poseur?

Pulling back the curtain…


Smoke and mirrors…

The truth is that Anthony Fauci is a long-time government bureaucrat who appears complicit in the funding of research that caused a worldwide pandemic resulting in the death of millions of innocent individuals worldwide.

You would think that the highest-paid government official in America, including the President of the United States, would have more respect for his office than to show up dressed like a street person.

Fauci believes CDC decisions should be absolute and not reviewable by the courts…

“The principle of a court overruling a public health judgment by a qualified organization like the CDC is disturbing in the precedent that it might send,” the National Institutes of Health official told CBS on Thursday.

Anthony Fauci Criticizes Court Ruling Voiding Federal Mask Mandate For Travel

Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Thursday that a court ruling voiding a federal mandate requiring passengers to mask up on airlines and public transit goes “against public health principles” and sets a “bad precedent.”

We are concerned about that — about courts getting involved in things that are unequivocally public health decisions,” the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told CNN+.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initially extended the federal mask mandate for travel until May 3, which Fauci called “a very sound public health decision.” But U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle voided that mandate on Monday, saying it exceeded the CDC’s authorities.

[OCS: Yet, the CDC cannot produce credible evidence that masks make a difference and are unwilling to debate the issue with eminently qualified credentialed experts with prestigious and universally acclaimed education and experience.]

Because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends, the court declares unlawful and vacates the mask mandate,” she wrote.

For a court to come in and interfere in that is really unfortunate,” Fauci said.

The CDC still recommends masking and urged the Justice Department to appeal the federal judge’s ruling on Wednesday.

[OCS: The issue is one of constitutional authority to act, not a ruling on the science, a mask’s efficacy, or medical necessity.]

“It is CDC’s continuing assessment that at this time an order requiring masking in the indoor transportation corridor remains necessary for the public health,” the agency said.

Individual cities can issue their own guidelines for wearing masks in public areas. <Source>

Who knows?

Two masks?

Dr. Fauci: Double-masking makes ‘common sense’ and is likely more effective

Could wearing two face masks at once during the pandemic provide more protection than just wearing one? According to White House advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, “it likely does,” he told NBC News’ TODAY on Monday. <Source>

No Masks?

Fauci Said Masks 'Not Really Effective in Keeping Out Virus,' Email Reveals

Dr. Anthony Fauci wrote in February 2020 that store-bought face masks would not be very effective at protecting against the COVID-19 pandemic and advised a traveler not to wear one.

The Washington Post and Buzzfeed News have obtained hundreds of pages of Fauci's emails through the Freedom of Information Act, revealing more about the early days of the pandemic.

In one message, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, replies to an email from Sylvia Burwell, believed to be the Sylvia Burwell who was health and human services secretary for three years under President Barack Obama. Burwell had asked for advice about wearing face masks while traveling. Fauci's reply is dated February 5, 2020, and is available in a document cloud provided by Buzzfeed.

Fauci wrote: "Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection.

"The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you."

He added: "I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location." <Source>

How does Fauci justify the CDC’s unconstitutional non-medical dictates?

CDC Issues Eviction Moratorium Order in Areas of Substantial and High Transmission

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky today signed an order determining the evictions of tenants for failure to make rent or housing payments could be detrimental to public health control measures to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This order will expire on October 3, 2021 and applies in United States counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels of SARS-CoV-2.

The eviction moratorium allows additional time for rent relief to reach renters and to further increase vaccination rates. In the context of a pandemic, eviction moratoria—like quarantine, isolation, and social distancing—can be an effective public health measure utilized to prevent the spread of communicable disease. Eviction moratoria facilitate self-isolation and self-quarantine by people who become ill or who are at risk of transmitting COVID-19 by keeping people out of congregate settings and in their own homes. <Source>

There are no constitutional or legal grounds to disadvantage a landlord on behalf of a tenant without just compensation for damages inflicted on a landlord who does not receive similar forbearance from his lenders, tax authorities, or utility providers.

Bottom line…

With an insane number of media appearances, I wonder when Fauci has time to do his job or even read the avalanche of medical literature.

As far as I can tell, Fauci parrots the day's narrative and proclaims it to be “the science.”

Local, state, and federal governments have abused their emergency powers during the pandemic. And, they appear reluctant to return usurped freedoms to “We the People.” Something to remember when voting in 2022.

We are so screwed.
