Down goes Biden! Down goes Biden! Down goes Biden!

In case this doesn’t ring a bell, pardon the pun, this title is a tribute to the late great boxing announcer, Howard Cosell, and his call of Joe Frazier being knocked down by George Foreman in their 1973 heavyweight title fight, “Down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier!”  

The difference here is we have Florida Governor Ron DeSantis knocking “President” Joe Biden for a loop, as opposed to George Foreman and Joe Frazier.

Samuel Chamberlain for The New York Post reports, “Gov. Ron DeSantis blasts Biden, vows Florida won’t be ‘biomedical security state.’”

“Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis ripped President Biden Wednesday, accusing the White House of trying to implement a ‘biomedical security state’ and warning that ‘I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID’ until the administration’s border policy changes.”

You go, Ron!

We need 49 more governors like you!

Biden and the rest of the “demonazis” have created and overseen the greatest “super spreader” event known to man.  Tens of thousands of covid positive illegal immigrants pouring over our southern border, who are then secretly bussed and flown to locations across the country!

And what about the tens of thousands that make it across the border without being caught and quantified?!

“DeSantis was scheduled to deliver remarks on Florida’s economy at an event in Panama City, but instead unleashed a four-and-a-half-minute diatribe against the president, accusing him of trying to ‘single out’ Florida over its rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.”

“Diatribe” may not be the best choice of words here.  I would use the term “truth bomb,” myself.

‘“This is a guy who ran for president saying he was gonna “shut down the virus.” And what has he done?’ DeSantis asked. ‘He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide-open southern border.’”

‘“I can tell you, whatever variants are around the world, they’re coming across that southern border,’ the governor added. ‘And so, he’s not shutting down the virus, he’s helping to facilitate it in our country.’”

That’s right, governor.  Biden, in effect, is aiding and abetting this threat to the American people and our country’s security.

I believe that would be better known as treason!

Biden, Harris, and the rest of the administration’s anti-American traitors should be impeached and removed from office immediately!

“DeSantis then turned his ire on the CDC’s recommendation that masks be worn in all K-12 schools by students, teachers, staff and visitors.”

‘“I can tell you in Florida, the parents are going to be the ones in charge of that decision,’ he said.”

‘“If some governors aren’t willing to do the right thing to beat this pandemic, then they should allow businesses and universities who want to do the right thing to be able to do it,’ Biden said Tuesday in response to pushback against mask and vaccine mandates. ‘I say to these governors, please, help. But if you aren’t going to help, at least get out of the way of the people who are trying to do the right thing. Use your power to save lives.’”

I really can’t believe you have the nerve to utter these words, Illegitimate Joe.

It would seem that “doing the right thing” and “the Biden administration” are mutually exclusive terms.

“On Wednesday, DeSantis accused Biden of wanting to copy New York’s sweeping vaccine mandate, in which restaurants should ban young kids from being able to go in because they’re not eligible for vaccination, and law-abiding citizens have to produce proof of their medical records just to go to the gym or attend an event, or just to participate in everyday society.”

‘“He wants that, but yet if you want to vote, he thinks it’s too much of a burden to show a picture ID when you’re voting,’ the governor went on. ‘So no voter ID, but you have to show your medical papers just to be able to live an everyday life? Give me a break [BOOM!].’”

“DeSantis added that America faces a choice between being a ‘free society, or we can have a biomedical security state. And I can tell you, in Florida, we’re a free state [WHAM!].’”

“The governor closed with a warning to the administration: ‘If you’re coming after the rights of parents in Florida, I’m standing in your way [BAM!] I’m not going to let you get away with it. If you’re trying to deny kids a proper in-person education, I’m gonna stand in your way and I’m gonna stand up for the kids in Florida [BOOM!]. If you’re trying to restrict people, impose mandates, if you’re trying to ruin their jobs and their livelihoods and their small business, if you are trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way, and I’m standing for the people of Florida [BAM!].’”

‘“So why don’t you do your job? Why don’t you get this border secure, and until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you [KA-POW!!!].’”

DOWN GOES BIDEN!

DOWN GOES BIDEN!

DOWN GOES BIDEN!

CDC: The Center for “Demonazi” Communication!

Does anyone, besides “the Covid walking dead,” really believe anything the CDC puts out anymore?

That answer would be, NO.

It’s a shame, but the CDC has no real credibility left.

Who, besides “the Covid walking dead,” doesn’t believe the CDC is just another propagandistic and weaponized arm of the deep state, anti-America, government?

Who, besides “the Covid walking dead,” the “useful idiots,” and the generally ignorant, believes ANYTHING the government says anymore?

Now Illegitimate Joe and the corrupt CDC are preparing to implement vaccination requirements, more mask mandates, and even more potential lockdowns!

Anthony Fauci and the current head of the CDC, Rochelle Wolensky, apparently got their marching orders, and they’re prepared to lie, lie, lie, in an effort to support their Marxist actions.  

This while left wing district attorneys and liberal judges let the real criminals back out onto the streets without prosecution or being held accountable.

Here are some questions I’d like to see asked of Fauci and Wolensky:

How many people have been murdered in Chicago over the last few months versus how many people have really died solely from covid?

How many children have died from suicides, resulting from social isolation, versus how many children have died solely from covid?

How many children have died from receiving the vaccination, versus how many children have died solely from covid?

What health risks, besides covid, do our children face from being forced to breathe through a mask, for 7-8 hours a day?

Why doesn’t the CDC ever qualify their vaccination requirement remarks, regarding those who have had the virus, and thus acquired the virus antibodies and natural immunity, when the science shows natural immunity is much more effective against the virus than the vaccines are?   

Why are medications for cancer, heart disease, and diabetes not provided freely by the government, like covid vaccinations are, in the name of public safety?

These are just a few of the question that should be asked.

Why haven’t they?

We have the Biden administration, the CDC, and the fake news mainstream media sounding a national alarm about the dangers of the covid delta variant, and implementing all of these freedom limiting mandates for American citizens, while at the same time shipping thousands and thousands of covid infested illegal immigrants all over the country to spread the same virus.

It doesn’t make any sense…, unless you really don’t care about public safety, and all you want to do is perpetuate the virus so you can continue your policies of governmental overreach.

Oh, by the way, does the CDC recommend body armor to go along with the masks for Chicagoans?

Just sayin’.

It’s a virtual “flashflood” of democrat lies!

The lies and disingenuousness of the democrats keeps coming fast and furiously from every direction.

Honestly…, it’s getting hard to keep up.

Let’s take a look at what law-abiding Americans are having to deal with these days.

We have the FBI, the DOJ, and the mainstream media continuously looking the other way where Hunter Biden is concerned. Specifically regarding foreign money funneled to his family, information on his laptop, Hunter’s felony violations of gun laws, and his art money laundering scam.

We have the FBI, the DOJ, and the mainstream media refusing to acknowledge voting laws were ignored and broken during the 2020 election, and that very troubling voting irregularities are coming to light with these various vote audits.

We have the FBI, the DOJ, and the mainstream media continuously looking the other way where any fellow demonazi is concerned.

We have the Biden administration ignoring laws and making up their own laws regarding immigration at our southern border.

We have the whole “defund the police” movement, cash free bail (which lets criminals back out on the streets as soon as they’re arrested), and radical leftist district attorneys who refuse to prosecute any criminal behavior, which has resulted in making America a much more dangerous place to live.   

We have democrats accusing the republicans of trying to suppress the vote, while the exact opposite is true, while at the same the same time trying to tie republicans to “Jim Crow laws” (laws which legalized segregation by race), which were originally enacted by democrats, by the way!  Biden’s own home state of Delaware is much more restrictive, voting-wise, than either Texas or Georgia, which are the current targets of the democrats voting disingenuousness.

We have the CDC continuing to perpetrate flawed recommendations, while ignoring the science, and causing unimaginable mental and physical harm to the children of our country…, all while this is ignored by the mainstream media, of course.

We have educational institutions across the board, along with teacher’s unions, promoting that Critical Race Theory (CRT) become a part of their indoctrination process, which basically prejudges and assigns blame or victimhood based solely on the color of the students’ skin. The true definition of racism.

We have the whole Cuba situation now, and the Cuban people’s call for freedom and the end of their oppressive communist government, and the demonazis’ reaction to them. “What do you mean you don’t like communism?! You must be mistaken!”   

We have the federal government, specifically the Biden administration, working hand-in-hand with a private corporation (Facebook) to flag, suppress, and censor posts they deem as “misinformation.” From the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” I suppose the demonazis feel they can get around The Constitution by not actually passing laws that support their actions by just doing what they want, while the fake news media looks the other way.  

And, we have the democrats blaming anything and everything that happens in the world on climate change, except China, of course.

It sure hasn’t taken the demonazis long to try and impose their will on the American people.

It’s only been eight months or so since Illegitimate Joe was “elected.” I’m just hoping our country can make it until the next election, and that that election is conducted relatively fairly.

Liar, liar, pants on fire, Dr. Fauci!

Just another episode in the continuing saga of the traitorous Dr. Anthony Fauci, and his continual crying, lying, and denying.

According to Audrey Conklin of Fox News, “Dr. Fauci is caught lying [again] to Congress after book exposes details of Wuhan lab-linked grant.”

With all due respect Ms. Conklin, catching Anthony Fauci lying is not particularly hard to do, nor is it any kind of news to many of us. 

‘“Dr. Fauci is so obsessed with maintaining his own relevance and downplaying President Trump’s role in combatting this crisis that he’s once again been caught lying,’ Rep. Buddy Carter, R-Ga., told Fox News. ‘We need someone leading the pandemic response and our investigation into its origins who is more concerned with the truth than their own PR campaign.  It’s time for Dr. Fauci to go.’”

Ya, time to go to jail!

“The grant was given to a nonprofit that previously worked with the Wuhan lab some experts have linked to the origins of COVID-19.”

What a good idea!!!

Let’s give some money to our enemy, China, to develop a biological weapon!!!

What could possibly go wrong?!!!

“Fauci, who leads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, initially resisted a White House directive to cancel the NIH grant to EcoHealth Alliance — a nonprofit conducting research on coronaviruses that had previously worked with the Wuhan lab some experts fingered as the origin of COVID-19. He later ‘reluctantly agreed’ after learning then-President Trump was directly behind the order, according to an upcoming book by Washington Post reporters Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta.”

“In the book titled, ‘Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History,’ Abutaleb and Paletta provide a behind-the-scenes account of how Fauci and his colleagues at the National Institutes of Health responded to the White House’s directive.”

What do you mean, “How Fauci and his colleagues at the National Institutes of Health responded to the White House’s directive?”

I didn’t know they had a choice of how to respond to a Presidential Directive.  

“In June of 2020, however, Fauci said the grant, worth a remaining $370,000, was ‘canceled because the NIH was told to cancel it,’ and he didn’t ‘know the reason’ behind the White House’s order during a House Energy and Commerce hearing after Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, asked why the Trump administration cut off NIH funding for EcoHealth.”

“Lawmakers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee are now reacting to the book excerpt in comparison to Fauci’s June 2020 comments before Congress and are repeating calls for an investigation into the virus’s origins and Fauci’s firing.”

“Fauci did not immediately respond to inquiries from Fox News.”

No big surprise there.

“House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., said, ‘there are many unanswered questions that can only be answered with a full investigation by Congress.’”

‘“It is perplexing that [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi refuses to allow any formal investigation into the origins of COVID,’ he said, adding that ‘without a real complete and transparent investigation…we have not been able to get the answers the American people deserve,’ but Congress ‘will not stop working to get the facts.’”

“It’s perplexing?”

Really?

The fact you think Pelosi’s refusal to have any of this investigated is “perplexing” is perplexing, Scalise!

“Scalise and more than 200 House Republicans have called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to direct committee chairs to investigate the origins of the virus and devote congressional investigatory resources to examining claims that the novel coronavirus pandemic stemmed from a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology which the Chinese Communist Party ‘covered’ up.”

You’d expect the Chinese Communist Party to cover all of this up…, but how about the democrats running interference for them, as well as Fauci, the CDC, and the mainstream media?    

Why would they be involved in covering all of this up?

Why?

BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS, FAUCI, AND THE CDC WERE ALL IN ON IT!!!

BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS, FAUCI, AND THE CDC WERE ALL IN ON IT!!!

BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS, FAUCI, AND THE CDC WERE ALL IN ON IT!!!

THE DEMOCRATS FUNDED IT, THE DEEP STATE (CDC AND NIH) ADMISTRATED IT, THEN THEY BLESSED ITS RELEASE BY CHINA IN ORDER TO DEFEAT PRESIDENT TRUMP.

This was an evil partnership, blessed by The Devil himself, and I’m not talking about George Soros…, it goes much higher, actually much lower, than that.    

“Rep. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., called the discrepancies between Fauci’s hearing comments and the book excerpt ‘very concerning,’ saying it ‘goes to show just how important it is to have full investigation into the origins of COVID-19.’”

‘“We owe it to the American people to find answers about how the pandemic happened and what Dr. Fauci knew and when he knew it,’ he said.”

With all due respect, Markwayne…, no kidding!

Do you think some of these people are all of a sudden grow a conscience?

Do you think our corrupt, politicized, and weaponized FBI or DOJ are going to do anything?

If this is what you think, then you’re a fool.

The only way any of this has a chance to coming to light starts with Republicans taking back The House and the Senate in 2022, and the White House in 2024.  Then we might begin to get to the bottom of this.

Fauci lies and the fake news cries…, again, and again.

Honestly…, all of the lying and all of the fake news liberal propaganda is getting boring, and getting old.

According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News, “Fauci, the WHO [the World Health Organization], and mainstream media lied about COVID origins for more than a year.”

We all know the democrat playbook is lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

“Even as of now, the US government has not launched a broad and serious investigation into where the coronavirus came from,” although the Biden administration has now said they want a commission to launch a preliminary “investigation” and report on their findings in 90 days.

I guess they think this “cold case” is cold enough now.  

In my opinion, this “investigation” is nothing more than a delay tactic that will result in a lot of ambiguous nothingness, but which allows them to say they are conducting an “investigation,” of which they really don’t want to amount to anything.

How could this “investigation” amount to anything without the cooperation and the involvement of the Chinese government?  

Carlson continues by saying, “Actually, it looks like this virus did come from a lab in China.”

Ya think?!

The “gain of function research,” or engineering the virus to be transferable to humans, was paid for with American money (Like we don’t have enough diseases out there to worry about, we have to create another!)

In a newly resurfaced paper from 2012, Dr. Anthony Fauci argued that the benefits of gain-of-function research are worth the increased risk of a potential pandemic-causing lab accident.

Brittany Bernstein, for The National Review, reports that, “The Weekend Australian unearthed a paper Fauci wrote for the American Society for Microbiology in October 2012 in which he argued in support of gain-of-function research. Such research involves making viruses more infectious and/or deadly. Experts have raised the possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic could have originated from a potential lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China, where gain-of-function experiments on bat coronaviruses have been conducted.”

“Despite the risks involved, Fauci called gain-of-function experiments ‘important work’ in his 2012 writing: ‘In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario – however remote – should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?’”

““Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks. It is more likely that a pandemic would occur in nature, and the need to stay ahead of such a threat is a primary reason for performing an experiment that might appear to be risky.’”

Oh, so, “the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks,” Fauci?

To date, there has been over three and a half million deaths, worldwide, attributed to the COVID-19 virus.

I’m sure these millions of people would not agree with you, nor would their families, nor would the hundreds of millions of people whose lives were negatively impacted by the virus indirectly.

You are a scientific idiot, Fauci, and a loyal democrat Nazi of the highest degree.

As I have stated before, Fauci, you are the equivalent of a modern day Dr. Josef Mengele, who was known as Hitler’s “Angel of Death.” He was a Nazi SS officer and physician during World War II. He is mainly remembered for his actions at the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he performed deadly experiments on prisoners, and was a member of the team of doctors who selected victims to be killed in the gas chambers and was one of the doctors who administered the gas.

“Nearly a year and a half into the pandemic, that’s the new consensus in the American media. Boy, these things change fast. There are holdouts of course. Just today, over at the Washington Post, a China shill called Michael Gerson wrote a hilariously overwrought column entitled: ‘The right is dwelling on slanderous myths about the origins of COVID-19.’

“The radical right! Slanderous myths! Russian QAnon sleeper cells slandering the Chinese government! It’s pretty funny. The good news is, it’s almost over. You’re probably not going to see a lot more columns like that going forward. The nonsense is finally dying down.”

You really have to wonder why some of these “journalists” are so, so, so anxious to label this totally conceivable, and probable, scenario as “slanderous myths” and baseless conspiracy theories?  

Why are they sooo afraid that someone will give any possible virus origin scenario any traction, other than the flawed wet market theory?

“At other parts of Michael Gerson’s own newspaper, we’ve learned, they’re working on new stories about how the virus did in fact escape from the lab in Wuhan. So, the debate among serious people over the origins of COVID appears to be pretty much winding up. Pretty much every sane person acknowledges at this point that the government of China likely caused the single worst man-made disaster in human history.”

With the help of Fauci, the democrats, and democrat bureaucrats, of course.

“As if we need more evidence, over the weekend, the Wall Street Journal reported that the first people infected with COVID-19 were probably researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In November of 2019, three of them were taken to the hospital with symptoms. The Journal did solid reporting, but it wasn’t entirely new. Back in January of this year, the State Department issued a fact sheet telling the entire country the same thing.”

All while democrats and the fake news media were quick to label any concerns in this area as baseless “conspiracy theories.”

“They said the first COVID patients were not hungry patrons of the local wet market, reckless diners who gorged themselves on pangolin and bats. No, they weren’t.”

“The first patients were researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Clearly, they’d been infected at work, while working on the virus. If you were trying to understand where COVID came from, and you should be if you want to prevent future pandemics, that State Department in January told you a lot. Yet it was ignored.”

“In fact on Monday, Tony Fauci himself — the man in charge of our whole response to COVID-19 — told CBS News that he never even heard about the State Department’s findings on the Wuhan lab. He had no idea.”

“In other words, Fauci’s own employers, the U.S. government, publicly released compelling evidence that the virus that he has devoted his life to fighting, did not come food, but instead escaped from the very bio lab that Tony Fauci has sent American tax dollars to fund.”

“Yet somehow Tony Fauci didn’t know this.”

You mean he didn’t know he would have to admit now what he actually knew all along.

“He didn’t know it till he read this weekend’s Wall Street Journal. It was news to him. Bolt from the sky. Totally new information.”

“Can we really believe that?”

“No, of course, we can’t.”

“In fact, we have heard that on or about November 19, 2019, right around the time those Chinese researchers became the world’s first COVID patients, the government of Thailand contacted the CDC and Tony Fauci’s office to say its intelligence service had picked up ‘biological anomalies’ around the lab in Wuhan. In other words, there had been a leak.”

“We can’t confirm this, though we believe it to be true. We do know that several other allied foreign governments, including the governments of France and Australia, have gathered evidence showing the virus escaped from a Chinese lab. Yet, Tony Fauci, who runs the whole thing, didn’t know any of this? Come on. Of course he did.”

“Fauci has known from the beginning the virus may very well have come from that lab. Many people have known that.”

“Fauci just lied about it for more than a year.  In May of 2020, in an interview with the willing dupes at National Geographic, he told you that, as one of the world’s most eminent scientists, there’s really no chance COVID-19 was engineered by human hands.”

“Fauci said, ‘If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what exists now, it’s very, very strongly leaning towards that could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated. The way the mutations have naturally evolved. A number of very qualified evolutionary biologists have said that everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that it evolved in the wild, then jumped species.’” 

‘“A number of very qualified evolutionary biologists.’ Really? Where are those scientists today? Is there, for example, a single working virologist on planet earth who’d come on this show right now and dismiss the Wuhan lab leak idea out of hand as ridiculous — or quote ‘outrageous,’ as Francis Collins of the NIH once did?”

“We doubt there’s a single working virologist who would dare to do that. But not so long ago, the entire scientific and public health establishments did that very thing. So, what’s changed? Not the science. The science remains precisely the same. Only the politics have changed.”

To be more precise, the “political strategies” have changed. 

“And that gets you thinking. Now that we know what we know about the Wuhan lab — and we know that, of course, Fauci has known it too for a very long time, how could he not — it’s pretty remarkable to go back and look at Fauci’s public statements about COVID and the government of China.” 

“Keep in mind, he knew that it was at least possible that this virus came from that Wuhan Lab.”

Ha! Not only did he know it was possible…, it was all a part of the plan.

“Yet he did this interview with our David Asman with Fox Business in January of 2020.”

“Keep in mind that Tony Fauci was perfectly aware that China may have created this virus [with Fauci’s help, of course], and he knew for a fact that the government of China was lying, covering its tracks, and pushing the world health organization to do the same. Imperiling the entire planet as they did that.”

“You look back over the last year in light of what we now know, and you ask yourself, how does Tony Fauci still have a job?”

How is Fauci not in prison is the better question?

“Seriously. What kind of country gives this much power to someone who’s proven himself to be serially dishonest and incompetent?”

A country that is corrupt.

A country that is becoming more un-American by the day.

And a country that is “serially dishonest.”

A country with a government that is obsessed with power and control.

“It’s scary we’d allow that. Especially in public health.”

Do we really have a choice?

I mean, at some point, don’t we have to hope our government has some level of decency and accountability?

What am I saying!

Silly me!

“Meanwhile, and this is the most galling part, those few journalists and scientists who told the truth about what happened in Wuhan were punished for telling the truth. They were attacked by CNN, censored by Facebook, denounced by their colleagues. They were destroyed in some cases. Where’s their apology? Who’s paying into their reparations fund? No one of course.”

Professor Stephen Mosher is an expert on China and a very brave person. You’d need to be to say what he said in February of 2020, back when mass lockdowns seemed like something they only did in China.”

“Mosher said, ‘Well, I think it escaped from the lab because we have the Chinese government basically telling us that it did…Wuhan is the only level four laboratory in all of China. So that’s where you would put a dangerous pathogen, whether you were genetically engineering it to be a weapon or not, that’s where you would be experimenting on it. So it makes sense that the epicenter of the epidemic, that the lab there would be the source of that virus.’”

“So you read that, and you think that guy was on to something. He was smart, he was honest, he connected the dots. For his trouble, for telling the truth, Steven Mosher was immediately denounced as a conspiracy nut. Meanwhile, the liars and China’s shills got richer and more powerful.” 

“The WHO [World Health Organization], which followed China’s instructions and told the world that COVID wasn’t really transmissible by air, now has the full support of the Biden administration. In fact, Joe Biden rejoined the WHO, with no conditions. This is despite the fact American intelligence can prove that the WHO lied, and people died as a result of those lies.”

“At the same time, they’re telling us we need a 9/11-style commission to understand every facet of the January 6th events at the capitol. But the pandemic that killed three million people and destroyed the west? Which it has. Never mind. We’ll let someone else figure it out.”

You mean they’ll let someone else pretend to try and figure it out.

We have seen plenty of examples, over the last four years, of criminals stepping over and around their own political bodies and skeletons while conducting these “investigations.”

In the new world of Democrat Nazism, “investigations” are either witch hunts or cover-ups.

They have nothing to do with the truth or justice.

Get political much, Fauci?

According to David Aaro of Fox News, “Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said Sunday the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. ‘shone a bright light on our own society’s failings’ in how the virus impacted minority communities.”

“Fauci stated that ‘the undeniable effects of racism’ have led to unacceptable health disparities that especially hurt African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans during the pandemic.”

And those “unacceptable health disparities” sure haven’t been aided by the Biden administration shipping untested migrants all over the country, spreading the virus to these very communities.

It’s funny we haven’t heard Fauci or the CDC issue any recommendations regarding the processing, holding, and distribution of these people all over our country.

I wonder why that is? 

There wouldn’t be any political reasons overriding science and public safety, would there?

There obviously are.

“President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser made the comments during an online commencement address for an Emory University graduation ceremony Sunday.”

“He told the graduates in Atlanta that many members of minority groups work in essential jobs where they might be exposed to the novel coronavirus.”

Really, Fauci?

I believe that many members of ALL racial groups “work in essential jobs where they might be exposed to the novel coronavirus.”

“He noted they are more likely to become infected if exposed because of medical conditions such as hypertension, chronic lung disease, diabetes, or obesity.”

You calling Blacks and Hispanics fat, Fauci?

I think you are. I think you are calling Blacks and Hispanics fatsos, Fauci!

But, you’re a democrat, and a supposed medical “expert,” so, no problemo.

‘“Now, very few of these comorbidities have racial determinants,’ Fauci said.”

No, actually, you just got done saying the opposite, Fauci. You said these minority groups are “more likely to become infected if exposed because of medical conditions such as hypertension, chronic lung disease, diabetes, or obesity.”

So, which is it, Fauci?

You’re not very good at this political stuff, are you, Fauci?

In fact, it seems you’re not very good at scientific or medical stuff either!

‘“Almost all relate to the social determinants of health dating back to disadvantageous conditions that some people of color find themselves in from birth regarding the availability of an adequate diet, access to health care, and the undeniable effects of racism in our society,’ he continued.”

You can see now why it’s hard to “follow the science” with Fauci. When you cross a political hack with a scientific hack, the results are never good.

If there are any “disadvantageous conditions that some people find themselves in from birth regarding the availability of an adequate diet, access to health care,” it’s because of socioeconomic situations, not racism.

“Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called racism a ‘serious’ threat to public health. The CDC said COVID-19 was felt, most severely, in communities of color, areas that have also ‘experienced disproportionate case counts and deaths.’”

Isn’t “racism” a “serious threat” to absolutely everything?

Why would we expect this to be any different?

We also see “communities of color” experiencing “disproportionate” crime rates, shooting rates, and murder rates.

The democrats’ answer to these situations is to defund and abolish the police.  

That’s about as helpful as wearing masks…, actually less so.    

‘“Confronting the impact of racism will not be easy,’ the CDC’s director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, said in a statement on the agency’s website.”

That Dr. Walensky is soooo wise.

She is a doctor, after all.

‘“I know that we can do this if we work together. I certainly hope you will lean in and join me.’”

Join you in doing what?

Join you in being stupid and being a democrat tool?

No thanks.

“On Sunday, Fauci said that correcting the societal wrong will take a commitment of decades, and he urged graduates to be part of the solution. Once society returns to ‘some form of normality,’ he said.”

You mean your socialistic form of normality, don’t you?

May I suggest the first thing we should do to “correct this societal wrong,” would be to fire you and then charge you with the murder of millions of people around the world, since are responsible for the development of the virus.

Please see my blog, “Is Fauci responsible for the virus?” for some reference to that last opinion:

https://mrericksonrules.com/2021/05/11/is-fauci-responsible-for-the-virus/

But…, instead of being investigated, “Fauci was also awarded the Emory University president’s medal Sunday.”

As is becoming tradition for mass murdering democrats, ala Governor Fredo Cuomo, instead of going to jail they get awards.  Isn’t that nice?

“Accepting the award, Fauci praised the graduates for or handling the profound disruption of the pandemic.”

‘“Societal divisiveness is counterproductive in a pandemic,’ Fauci said. ‘We must not be at odds with each other since the virus is the enemy, not each other.’”

Like I mentioned before, don’t try and deflect blame onto a virus that wouldn’t have even existed without your help!

‘“Not since the influenza pandemic of 1918 has humanity faced a public health crisis of this magnitude,’ he continued.”

You’re a regular “modern day Dr. Mengele” there, Fauci!  It sounds like you’re proud of your accomplishment as well.

Well, you did manage to sabotage the election for President Trump, save us all from four more years of freedom, prosperity, and respect around the world!

Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

Wait…, what?

Yes, you read correctly.

Is Fauci responsible for the virus?!

First of all, I guess I owe China an apology. 

This wasn’t the “China Virus,” it was a “Swamp Virus,” a Democrat virus, created with the funding of the U.S. Government “Deep State” (The Swamp), with the help of the Chinese Wuhan Lab, and orchestrated by a swamp monster in sheep’s clothing, none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci!!!

Let’s just take a moment to let that sink in.

…,

…,

…,

Now you know how it feels to played for a fool.

It doesn’t feel good does it?

Let me just say it again…,

THIS WASN’T THE “CHINA VIRUS,” IT WAS A “SWAMP VIRUS,” A DEMOCRAT VIRUS, CREATED WITH THE FUNDING OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT “DEEP STATE” (THE SWAMP), WITH THE HELP OF THE CHINESE WUHAN LAB, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

AGAIN…, AND ORCHESTRATED BY A SWAMP MONSTER IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, NONE OTHER THAN DR. ANTHONY FAUCI!!!

Again, let’s just take a moment to let that all sink in.

…,

…,

…,

According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News, “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen, and why isn’t there a criminal investigation?”

An excellent question, Tucker, but we all know only republicans get investigated!

What’s wrong with you?!

What we all want to hear about is how “Anthony Fauci let the coronavirus pandemic happen!” 

But first…,

“How do we assess the Biden administration’s response to COVID? Well, here’s one marker: it tells you pretty much everything that the White House that is supposedly so committed to science chose as its head COVID coordinator a man with no background at all in science or medicine. His name is Jeffrey Zients.”

“Zients ran Joe Biden’s presidential transition team, that’s his qualification. He’s a former management consultant from Bain [a management consulting company], who sat on the board of Facebook.”

Jeffrey Zients is a political operative. That’s who’s overseeing COVID response for Joe Biden. The good news is because Zients isn’t even close to being an actual scientist, he doesn’t talk like one. Occasionally he says things whose significance the rest of us can clearly understand. Read what Zients said on CNN, and it becomes very clear how the White House understands this pandemic.”

“JEFFREY ZIENTS: And the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter. Let’s keep up our guard. Let’s follow the CDC guidance. And the CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.”

“There it is. ‘The CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.’ A sentence like that raises so many questions, it’s hard to know where to start. How about here: If the vaccines work, why are any vaccinated people wearing masks anywhere, ever? Seriously. Jeffrey Zients should be required to explain that, slowly and with numbers, so the rest of us who didn’t serve on the board of Facebook can understand. No one’s asked him to explain that, of course, so he hasn’t. Nor has anyone asked Zients just how effective masks are at preventing the spread of COVID.”

“Our public health authorities act as though masks are absolutely critical. But are they absolutely critical? Where are the serious studies that prove that? Do they exist? If they do exist, is there a reason they’re being hidden from us? And, finally, when did masklessness become a privilege? For thousands of years, until 12 months ago, masklessness was the global status quo. Virtually everyone on earth lived without masks. That wasn’t considered weird. Masks were weird. They were unhealthy and menacing.”

“Yet Jeffrey Zients has just informed us that things have changed. Going forward, not wearing a mask, even after you’ve been vaccinated, is ‘a privilege’ — a Scooby snack, a gold star, a pat on the head — that may or may not be granted to you exclusively by the Democratic Party, on the basis of no science, but purely because they’re in charge and you’re not. That’s called public health. It’s absolutely critical to the existence of our species that you comply with it reflexively, without asking questions or thinking about it. This will all continue, Zients explained, ‘across time.’”

“What does that mean, exactly? How long will this terrifyingly irrational exercise continue? For the answer to that question, we go to a man even more partisan than Jeffrey Zients. The nation’s most highly credentialed political operative, Tony Fauci, let us know that, actually, this mask thing is never going to end.”

“CHUCK TODD, NBC: But is the mask going to be something we have with us in a seasonal aspect?”

“DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: You know, that’s quite possible. I think people have gotten used to the fact that wearing masks, clearly, if you look at the data, diminishes respiratory diseases…So it is conceivable that as we go on a year or two or more from now, that during certain seasonal periods when you have respiratory-borne viruses like the flu, people might actually elect to wear masks to diminish the likelihood that you’ll be spreading these respiratory-borne diseases.”

‘“A year or two or more from now.’ In other words, never — you’re never taking off the mask. Get ready for a lifetime of filthy wet cotton covering your mouth, reduced oxygen flow to your brain, and a world where every stranger looks the same because no one has a face. When Kamala Harris and her husband kissed the other day while wearing masks, they were giving you a preview of your daughter’s wedding. In a masked world, human beings never really touch each other. Is that public health? No, it’s not public health. It’s a kind of punishment. Tony Fauci is punishing the country — you, us, everyone. The question is: why is he doing that? You’ve got to think that at least part of Fauci’s authoritarian germ hysteria is a cover for something else. Could it be that Tony Fauci is trying to divert attention from himself and his own role in the COVID-19 pandemic?”

Okay…, now we’re getting to the good stuff (bad stuff), really!

“What do we mean by that? We can’t recommend more strongly a new piece by Nicholas Wade, who for more than 50 years has been one of the preeminent science writers in the world. For 30 years, Nicholas Wade worked for the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times, he edited the science section there. But this piece did not run in the New York Times. It ran on Medium [an on-line publishing company]. And the piece explains where the virus almost certainly came from. In it, Wade makes it clear that, more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Say again?

“…more than any other single American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please continue.  

“Wade lays out a nearly insurmountable amount of evidence that this virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Central China.”

He did use the term “insurmountable amount of evidence.”

“We’ve raised this possibility from the early days of the pandemic. But this piece all but proves it. At the time the outbreak began last fall, the Wuhan lab was conducting experiments on how to make bat viruses infectious to human beings. Those experiments were funded by American tax dollars, the funding for those experiments was approved and directed by Tony Fauci in Washington. It’s hard to believe that, but it’s true, and the piece lays it out.”

The question that immediately comes to mind is, why would we want to make bat viruses infectious to human beings in the first place?  Don’t we have enough infectious diseases to deal with?

Secondly, why would America be funding this via a Chinese Lab?

Was Iran and North Korea too busy developing nukes to get in on this?

“Many of the Wuhan experiments fell under the direction of a Chinese researcher Shi Zheng-li. Known as the ‘bat lady,’ she was China’s leading expert on bat-born viruses. Her job was genetically engineering coronaviruses so that they [could] infect human beings, and do so as easily as possible.”

Again…, why?

“The work, Wade notes, involved, ‘doing gain-of-function experiments designed to make coronaviruses infect human cells.’”

“Why was this research going on? You’ll have to ask the scientist who did it.”

You could also ask Anthony Fauci.

But the democrats aren’t going to bring him before Congress, now, and the liberal propaganda fake news media will do their part in hiding the truth.

“But the facts remain, these were some of the most dangerous experiments ever conducted by mankind. And yet we know that China wasn’t taking the necessary safety precautions. And we should not be surprised by that. Several years ago, U.S. diplomatic cables warned about lax standards at the Wuhan Lab. The Wuhan facility was classified as a ‘bio-safety-level two laboratory.’ What does that mean? According to Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers, that’s approximately the same level of safety that you would find in a dentist’s office in America.”

“So that lab, conducting research on the coronavirus, and how to make it transmissible to human beings, resulted almost certainly in infecting a lab researcher and spread from there. The first coronavirus patients didn’t come from the so-called wet market as we heard. That was a lie. The first patients of the coronavirus were employees at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

“Once again, why would the Wuhan lab be conducting experiments like that in the first place? Well, we know that Tony Fauci had authorized payment for the research. For five years — from 2014 to 2019 — the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Fauci runs, and has for decades, pumped money to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance.” 

“The EcoHealth Alliance, run by a man called Dr. Peter Daszak, contracted with Dr. Shi to conduct gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.”

“Just before the pandemic became public knowledge — on December 9, 2019 —  Peter Daszak sat for an interview that was streamed online. In that interview, he bragged about how easy it is to manipulate coronaviruses in lab experiments.”

“PETER DASZAK: Coronavirus is a pretty good… You can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily. It’s spike protein, Spike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus, zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, build the protein. And we worked with Ralph Barrack at UNC to do this.  Insert into a backbone of another virus and then do some work in the lab.”

“Just days after he said that, it became clear that this new version of coronavirus, this novel coronavirus, what we now call COVID-19, was running rampant through Wuhan then China then the world. Since the pandemic began, Peter Daszak, not surprisingly, has appeared on virtually every media platform available to him to deny, in the most strenuous and dismissive terms, that the Wuhan lab could not be in any way linked to the outbreak, since he has very personal motives for claiming that. ‘The idea that this virus escaped from a lab is just pure baloney,’ he said last year. But that’s a lie. It’s not pure baloney.”

“A lot of smart people knew that right away. One of those people is Alina Chan, a molecular biologist at the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT. She bravely wrote a paper about how the coronavirus’s genome hadn’t changed much over time, and that was odd because that genome had gone through trillions of replications. According to Chan, that fact implied that the virus was designed for human-to-human transmission from the outset.”

“Millions of people have died of COVID-19, so it’s not a matter of score-settling or blame-assignment to figure out where it came from.”

“If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started. And so, the World Health Organization, said it would get to the bottom of it. The World Health Organization, of course, is beholden to China. And so, it tried to hide the basic facts of the origins of this pandemic. And to hide those facts, WHO appointed none other than Peter Daszak as the only America-based representative on the investigative team looking into where the virus came from. In what turned out to be a sham report, that team concluded it’s ‘extremely unlikely’ the virus came from the Wuhan lab. That’s not true.”

“The WHO’s investigation into the origins of the virus was fraudulent, and that matters to public health globally. But one thing you’ll notice is that Tony Fauci did not say that. Why? Because once again, he’s implicated in it, personally.”

“The gain-of-function research that Peter Daszak was bragging about in the video we just showed you had, in fact, been banned explicitly by the U.S. government. There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on in the Wuhan lab, to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the feds halt its funding to the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question, and Nicholas Wade looked into it.”

“Here’s what he found: ‘Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on p.2 of the moratorium document states that “An exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the USG funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.”’”

“And that’s exactly the loophole that was exploited.”

“Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci —  possibly along with Francis Collins, the director of the NIH — invoked that special exception in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab, and the deadly experiments that were going on there. The experiments that clearly went so wrong.”

“According to Richard Ebright, ‘Unfortunately, the NIAID Director [Fauci] and the NIH Director exploited this loophole to issue exemptions to projects subject to the pause – preposterously asserting the exempted research was “‘urgently necessary to protect public health or national security — thereby nullifying the pause.”’”

The “national security,” of course, was making sure Donald Trump didn’t get re-elected.

“This wouldn’t have happened if Tony Fauci didn’t allow it to happen. That is clear.”

“It’s an amazing story.”

“It is a shocking story.”

Yes, it is.

“In a functional country [a fair country], there would be a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country, changing it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”

I think we can all figure out the answer to that one.

Former White House trade adviser, Peter Navarro, has also accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of being “the “father of COVID-19, while adding he thinks that, “Fauci is a sociopath and a liar.”

Even the Nazi’s “Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele, wasn’t responsible for as many deaths as our own Dr. Fauci apparently is.

AND THIS IS THE GUY WHO HAS BEEN LECTURING US, FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, ABOUT WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO REGARDING OUR SAFETY, AS IT PERTAINS TO THE VIRUS?!

DOES HE HAVE NO CONSCIENCE?

DOES HE HAVE NO SHAME?

THE ANSWER TO THOSE QUESTIONS ARE “NO,” OBVIOUSLY.

IT JUST MAKES YOU WANT TO THROW UP, DOESN’T IT?

Until Fauci is made to answer all of these allegations, I really don’t want to hear another word come out of his disgusting little mouth.

Now we’re supposed to wear two masks?!

According to Alexander Tin, for CBS News, “CDC [Center for Disease Control] recommends double masks to help protect against COVID-19.”

So, does that mean for the last year we’ve not been properly protected with just one mask?

That would explain why the infection numbers have been so high for so long.

Thanks CDC, for your flawed recommendations once again.

Remember…, we have to “follow the science,” even if “the science” doesn’t know where it’s going!

“After months of demands for federal health officials to update mask recommendations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced new guidelines Wednesday that include wearing well-fitting face masks or two masks at a time to help curb the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Who, exactly, has been demanding “federal health officials to update mask recommendations,” by the way?

The only thing most people are demanding, as far I know, is for the CDC to come out and admit that masks are not really effective in stopping the virus, which obviously now, they’re admitting they’re not.

They admit that even two masks will not stop the transfer of the China virus.

Don’t believe me?

Hospitals didn’t let visitors in even if you were wearing a mask.

Now try visiting someone in the hospital wearing two masks…, they still won’t let you in.

If masks really worked, why would hospitals not let family members visit their loved ones if they were wearing one…, or two?

BECAUSE MASKS DON’T WORK!!!    

“The updated guidance follows the release of new research from the CDC which tested various masks in a lab setting and found evidence that combining a cloth mask over a surgical mask could dramatically reduce both the spread of the virus to others and exposure to the virus oneself.”

“Reduces,” not eliminates.

We’ve been dealing with the China virus for like a year now, and just now they’re coming up with this two-mask thing?!

“The CDC’s new recommendations advise Americans to select masks with a nose wire that can be adjusted for a snug fit, and to use a mask fitter or brace to better seal their masks. The CDC also recommends wearing a mask with multiple layers for greater protection, or layering a cloth mask over a disposable medical mask.”

“For a better fit, it advises knotting the ear loops of the disposable mask and then tucking and flattening the extra material on the sides.”

Whatever.

‘“I want to be clear that these new scientific data released today do not change the specific recommendations about who should wear a mask or when they should wear one. But they do provide new information on why wearing a well-fitting mask is so important,’ CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said at a White House COVID-19 briefing.”

You want to be “clear,” Ms. Walensky?

Then you should try harder.

“For the new study, CDC researchers tested combinations of multi-layered cloth and common surgical or medical procedure masks in a laboratory, simulating breathing and coughing between pairs of dummies.”

“Between pairs of dummies?”

C’mon…, these CDC researchers deserve a little more respect than that, don’t they?

Well…, maybe not!

No…, definitely, not.

“Dummies” it is!

“When only a disposable mask was worn, just 42% of cough droplets were blocked in the experiment. Combining the disposable mask with a cloth mask on top blocked 92.5% of particles expelled from the cough.”

Okay…, we get the “droplets” thing…, but how much of virus sized particles are blocked?

I’ve heard a good analogy for how much “virus” a typical mask blocks is, envision throwing sand at a chain-link fence.

Ha, ya…, that’s about it.  

“The new research comes after months of pleas by advocates for the CDC to update its guidance to include recommending wearing two masks, after other studies and anecdotal evidence suggested the move could curb the spread of the virus.”

If two is better than one, then three must be better than two!

How about four?!

No, wait, I’ve got it!

How about wearing just one mask that actually works?!

“The agency’s top officials had declined to change their official recommendations until this new research had been completed, though many — from President Biden to Dr. Anthony Fauci — had already been spotted wearing two masks.”

Should taxpayers get a rebate for schools that aren’t open?

I believe this is a valid and an honest question.

If you pay local property taxes on your home or business, the lion’s share of what you pay goes towards funding your local schools.

Taxpayers pay these school taxes, whether they have school-aged children or not, in order to guarantee the children in their community receive an education, and eventually, hopefully, become intelligent and productive members of society…, at least until they go to college.

If our local governments decide to close our schools, should we still be paying for them?

If they decided to discontinue garbage collection, would you still be forced to pay for that?

Just sayin’.

It really doesn’t matter if you think the schools should be closed or not.

It really doesn’t matter whether your local government is “following the science” or not. 

If the children of our community are not receiving the education we are paying for (and I’m sorry, but this distance learning crap doesn’t count), why shouldn’t the taxpayers get at least a percentage (a big percentage) of the money back that they paid?

Why should teachers get paid for a job they aren’t doing?

Why should the local school district be paid for the upkeep, utilities, and support staffs for buildings our children aren’t using?

And, again, I’m sorry, but this distance learning crap doesn’t count.

No wonder why the teachers are hesitant about going back to work, like in Chicago.

Why go back when you can use COVID as a ready-made excuse, and continue to be paid for doing next to nothing?

Why go back when all of the “the scientists” in the teachers’ unions are overriding the scientists from the CDC (Center for Disease Control)?

Now I’ve heard that the Biden administration considers a school “re-opened” if they hold classes one day a week. 

If you say so, Illegitimate Joe.

This was one of the Biden administration’s “clarifications” of their official policy.

That’s funny, because only a month ago these “clarifications” were called lies.  

If it’s one thing we have learned, it’s that “it’s all about the money,” and not “all about the kids.”  

If the teachers stopped getting paid, and the school districts stopped getting their share of the money, the schools would be reopening so fast it would make your head spin!

Of course, hell would freeze over before a penny of taxpayer money was ever returned to the taxpayers.

That being said, there are many taxpayers across our country who really should be receiving some of their hard-earned money back.

Following the Science?

For how long and how many times have we heard the liberals decry, “We have to follow the Science?”

Well, apparently, “following the Science” is only a popular liberal catch phrase which is trotted out when it suits their intentions and their politics.

Democrats (blue state governors in particular) have used the China virus as a means to impose a wide range of impositions on our Constitutional freedoms in the name of safety.  

Some based on “following the Science,” and some not so much.  

Usually only when it was politically convenient.

Dr. Richard Besser, for Fox News, says that, “Despite coronavirus, science is NOT telling us to close schools.”

But how could that be?!

We MUST “follow the Science,” right?!

“Sound science, like the coronavirus itself, is apolitical. Most everything else this year — including decisions on whether to close schools — is not.”

I think if we’ve learned anything these last four years, it’s that nothing is apolitical anymore.

Nothing.

“As the pandemic enters its deadliest phase to date, government leaders and school districts are having to make extraordinarily difficult decisions about whether to continue in-person learning amid record communitywide surges in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Excuse me, but these aren’t “extraordinarily difficult decisions” at all.

The Teachers’ Union has made those decisions for our illustrious political “leaders.”  

“New York City’s decision to close schools indefinitely, and the decision in my home state of New Jersey to allow school districts to keep them open, offers a stark contrast in how the two states with the highest death rates for COVID-19 are managing this crisis.”

“As a pediatrician and a parent, I understand the fear, confusion, and even anger that parents and caregivers face today as policymakers grapple with school decisions.”

Can’t you just envision those policymakers “grappling” with those school decisions into the wee hours of the morning?!

“We know that being in the classroom benefits children socially, emotionally and academically.”

Oh, yeah…, so, what’s the problem?

Isn’t it all about the kids?

Of course it’s not.

Huge numbers of these kids have been thrown out with the trash by these supposed caring liberals.

Many of these kids depend on school for at least one or two decent meals each day.

“On the other hand, virtual learning can be a sound option — and when transmission rates rise to unsafe levels, a necessary one — if a student has a computer, a good Internet connection, a quiet workspace, and no special learning needs. For millions of families without these luxuries, however, it’s an unworkable burden and educational disadvantage that many children could bear for a lifetime.”

Ya…, “It’s an unworkable burden and educational disadvantage that many children could bear for a lifetime,” but it’s a sacrifice the liberals and the Teachers’ unions are willing to bear for them on their behalf.  

“From a health perspective, it appears that most children fare well if infected, but they can still spread the coronavirus to higher-risk people in their homes, communities and yes, schools. But when schools have the necessary resources and follow strict protocols, in-person learning has worked remarkably well without accelerating community spread.”

Not according to the teachers, apparently.

“Knowing this, we should do all we can to keep kids in school by providing the funds for proper staffing, equipment, protective gear and ventilation systems. Without these supports, we cannot expect schools to remain open.”

Ok, there we go…, we just need to provide more funding.

We should all know by now that it’s always about the money.

The current CDC Director, Robert R. Redfield, says, “Schools are among the safest places kids can be.”

I guess he isn’t considered to have anything to do with “Science.”

“Achievement gaps could be exacerbated when students are out of school, placing yet another burden on children of color.”

“However, the science and data now tell us a much more nuanced story, and we must adapt as new information arrives. That is the fundamental value of rapid learning during a crisis. With differing approaches, schools have shown that safe in-person learning is possible.”

“That’s why New York City’s decision last week to close schools seems to be a case of following a rigid plan written before we knew schools could remain open safely. The city’s test-positive threshold of 3% — established well before the school year began — has been eclipsed, triggering closures. Yet a mere 0.23% of students in the city’s public schools have tested positive. In fact, New York schools have been a pandemic success story.”

“Governors nationwide are under pressure to follow New York’s lead and close schools, no matter what the data shows. With nearly 200,000 cases a day being reported in the U.S., some of those cases will undoubtedly be teachers, students and staff.”

Why would governors nationwide be under any kind of pressure to follow New York’s lead?

The state of New York, New York City, Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio have the worst COVID record of any state in the nation.

So, “the Pressure” is on other governors to follow their political lead, not their successful dealing with the virus lead.

Just so we’re clear about that.  

“However, decisions on school closures should be driven by data on transmission linked to schools and not on anecdotes or outdated metrics. Public pressure, I fear, is going to make it increasingly difficult in the weeks ahead for governors to stick to the science-based guidance on school closures.”

“Science-based guidance?”

And “public pressure” has no effect on these slimy democrats anymore.

Their friends, the fake news, liberal propaganda, media will just ignore and spin “the pressure” whichever way they want.   

“In the spring, New Jersey was among the hardest hit per capita by COVID-19, with the nation’s highest death rate. But this fall, New Jersey schools have not been the problem. The state’s governor, Phil Murphy, issued a joint statement with six other Northeast governors last week that said in part: ‘In-person learning is the best possible scenario for children, especially those with special needs and from low-income families.’”

“That’s the crux of why we need to do all we can to keep children in schools. The pandemic has disproportionately impacted Black, Latino and Native American communities with dramatically higher rates of infections, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Where is Black Lives Matter on this issue?

Where are any of the democrats on this issue?

Oh, I forgot…, the election is over, so the democrats can go back to ignoring any of the issues affecting the Black, Latino and Native American communities. 

Just sayin’.  

“Because of the inequitable way schools are funded in much of America, (And whose fault is that?) achievement gaps could be exacerbated when students are out of school, placing yet another burden on children of color at the very moment when our nation is forging a new path forward based on racial equity and justice.”

“We know, too, that education is just one facet of what our schools provide. Many families — especially those with parents working full-time, one-parent households, and low-income households — also rely on schools for healthy meals, technology support, and before- and after-hours child care.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the perversion of our national priorities. We need to treat teachers and school staff like the indispensable front-line workers they are and support them as such.”

I think we are, aren’t we?

The teachers appear to be the ones who aren’t comfortable being front-line workers.

Yes, “The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the perversion of our national priorities,” but the “perversions” are much more far reaching than the good doctor understands, or is willing to acknowledge.

“At the same time, we must reject the false choice that we either sacrifice teachers or do harm to our children. In the next critical months, we must come together and follow the science so that the greatest public health crisis in a century doesn’t also become an educational crisis.”

Uh…, the “educational crisis” is already here, and has been here for quite a while already.
