FoxNews.com reports that
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., shared two words in response to news of unearthed emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Thousands of emails obtained by Buzzfeed News and hundreds more reviewed by The Washington Post through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests show Fauci’s responses to both critiques and high praise as he worked to communicate the dangers of COVID-19 to the U.S. as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“Told you,” Paul wrote in a Tuesday tweet with the hashtag #firefauci.
He added in another tweet: “Can’t wait to see the media try to spin the Fauci FOIA emails.”
Paul has repeatedly criticized Fauci on social media and in interviews for his comments on herd immunity, wearing masks even after getting the COVID-19 vaccine and his dismissal of a theory suggesting COVID-19 may have originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China that has gained more credibility among members of the media in recent weeks despite early snubbing of the idea.
Paul has also condemned Fauci’s claim made during a May 25 congressional hearing that a $600,000 federal grant from NIAID did not directly fund the lab’s gain of function research, which is research that involves modifying a virus to make it more infectious among humans.
The grant went to a group called EcoHealth Alliance, which then paid the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study the risk that bat coronaviruses could infect humans.
Francis Collins, the director of NIH, said earlier in the hearing that the taxpayer-funded grant to EcoHealth and the Wuhan Institute of Virology was not approved to conduct gain of function research.
Some Republicans, including Paul, maintain that NIAID money under Fauci’s purview did in fact go to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct gain of function research, which raises ethical, safety and security concerns, according to some politicians and scientists.
“Fauci acknowledged that a gain of function super virus could escape a lab and cause a pandemic, but that it is worth the risk. His naïveté should disqualify him from government service,” Paul wrote in a May 28 tweet responding to Fauci’s comments during the House Appropriations Committee subcommittee hearing.
Collins dismissed the so-called “lab leak theory” as a “conspiracy” in an April email to Fauci obtained by Buzzfeed.
In an April 17 email obtained by the outlet, Fauci said coronavirus mutations that led to COVID-19 are “totally consistent with a jump of a species from an animal to a human” rather than a lab leak.
Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth, personally thanked Fauci for supporting “evidence” that COVID-19 came from an animal rather than the Wuhan lab in an April 18, 2020, emails obtained by Buzzfeed show.
“I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Daszak wrote to Fauci.
He praised the NIAID director’s comments as “brave,” saying they will “help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’s origins.”
“Many thanks for your kind note,” Fauci responded.
The NIAID director said during the May 25 House Appropriations Committee subcommittee hearing that he has no objections to an investigation of China’s early handling of the pandemic.
Fauci also said in the emails Buzzfeed released that store-bought masks would not be completely effective in preventing COVID-19.
In a February response to an emailed query about wearing masks while traveling via plane, Fauci said, “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.”
He added that 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.”
So, it appears that Dr. Fauci has pulled one of the biggest con jobs in American History.
He was involved in the funding of the research going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
And then, he becomes the COVID-19 Expert and the Medical “Face” advising President Trump and Americans how we should react to it, while hiding his involvement in its origin.
Between Fauci and the Main Stream Media, Americans were taught to fear the Chinese Coronavirus.
It is one thing to take common sense precautions.
It is quite another to live in fear, isolated within your own home, scared to death by an invisible enemy.
The fear spread by Dr. Fauci and his fellow bureaucrats and MSM Talking Heads, accomplished what Democratic Politicians could not.
They stopped the juggernaut that was the Trump-driven American Economic Comeback.
You know, the timing of this “lab accident” could not have been better for the Democrats and the Chinese Government.
It brought the Trump Presidency to a standstill, giving the Democrats the opportunity to put the political machinations into place that allowed demented old Joe Biden to be installed as the 46th President of the United States of America.
And since Biden has taken office, he has been extremely reticent to “open up” America and “get things back to normal”, even though the rate of new COVID-19 Cases continues to dramatically decrease daily.
So Dr. Fauci and President Biden have both been extremely cautious about allowing Americans to resume their normal lives, which include making the engine of American Capitalism run like a NASCAR driven by Dale Earnhart, Sr.
Why, you would think that they both had economic dealings with China in the past few years…wouldn’t you?
