FoxNews.com reports that
Dr. Anthony Fauci escalated his spat with some lawmakers over the nation’s COVID-19 response by claiming they oppose “science.”
Fauci has served as the face of the government’s pandemic response, putting him at odds with lawmakers who remain critical of that response. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has frequently sparred with Fauci over various statements and policies the president’s chief medical adviser has made or endorsed.
Most recently, Paul blasted Fauci for “obfuscating the truth” about the National Institutes of Health funding gain-of-function research after the organization admitted in a letter to House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., that a “limited experiment” was indeed conducted.
Fauci, during an interview with “Face the Nation,” dismissed opposition from such lawmakers as “noise,” saying they’re “really criticizing science.”
“Anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this, so if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about,” Fauci said. “But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”
Paul took to Twitter Sunday morning to respond to Fauci’s claims, calling it “absolute hubris” for Fauci to declare that he represents science.
“It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity,” Paul wrote.
Fauci also dismissed a suggestion from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that he should be prosecuted by the attorney general over his comments about the gain-of-function research. Cruz tweeted that “It’s a crime to knowingly lie to Congress, so I asked AG Garland if he’d appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci.”
Fauci laughed at the suggestion, asking, “What happened on January 6th, senator?” He “you’d have to be asleep” not to believe that Republicans are trying to “scapegoat” him.
In a five-tweet Twitter thread issued in response to Fauci’s comment against him on Sunday, Cruz excoriated Fauci as an “unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans.”
Saying that Fauci “lives in a liberal world,” Cruz went on to cite the section of the U.S. Code that both he and Paul allege Fauci violated when he testified before a Senate Committee in May that “the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Cruz also blasted Fauci for attempting to deflect lawmakers’ criticism against him by resorting to “ad hominem insults parroting Democrat talking points,” and concluded by reiterating that the DOJ should prosecute him.
“Science”, my hindquarters.
Not since the Nazis has so much totalitarianism been advanced in the name of “science”.
The funding of research into bat viruses done by the Wuhan Institute, under the funding by the EcoHealth Alliance, lasted for over a decade.
Surprise! Surprise! Both the CDC and the NIH are partners of the Ecohealth Alliance.
Just as we found out during the whole charade known as “Russiagate”, there are Professional Bureaucrats who operate behind the scenes of our Federal Government, imperious and seemingly above the law.
Like a spider’s web of intrigue, they move in the shadows, spending our tax money on projects away from the eye of the public…projects like the Bat Virus Research done by the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the University Center For Animal Experiment.
These projects remain unknown by the general public, until something unforeseen happens, like the “accident” at the Wuhan Institute which released COVID-19 on an unsuspecting world.
Former President Trump tried to clean out this rats’ nest of Professional Bureaucrats, naming them the Washington Swamp.
Unfortunately, he did not succeed and they eventually were able to arrange for a demented old man to be appointed the 46th President of the United States of America.
The entire COVID-19 Catastrophe and Washington’s behind-the-scenes machinations during it, which resulted in a nationwide lockdown and a “radical change” to our American way of life, has been all about controlling average Americans to get them used to having their individual freedom taken away from them.
The revelations of the last several months concerning the Washington Swamp’s involvement and especially that of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s subterfuge concerning the funding of COVID-19 is just the beginning of horrifying things which were done in the darkness by bureaucrats which are about to find themselves illuminated by the light of truth.
Dr. Tony Fauci is an egomaniacal career bureaucrat advancing the cause of totalitarianism and governmental control of Americans’ lives from cradle-to-grave in the name of “science”.
And, since Biden and his Handlers will not fire his…it is time for Americans to simply ignore him.
Until He Comes,
DONATIONS ARE WELCOME AND APPRECIATED.
