I just, and I mean JUST, as in my last article, referenced conspiracy theories coming true and time vindicating people. So imagine my reaction when I see that Fauci’s emails from the last year have flooded the internet, filled with ALL the dirt. Insert angry chuckle here. Woooow.
Here’s a brief recap, so we can get right to the anger – A researcher who is on record saying he was involved in manipulating the coronaviruses thanked Fauci for dismissing the lab-leak theory. Fauci lied to Rand Paul under oath about the person conducting gain of function research. China suggested to Fauci that America lead the world through example by masking up and social distancing. A physicist emailed Fauci repeatedly about treating the virus with Hydroxychloriquine and Alvesco. The physicist’s emails seemed to go unanswered, but Fauci later emailed friends and recommended the same drugs. Cool. Fauci advised a friend that store-bought face masks were not necessary for travel, as they would not capture any of the tiny particles, but they could be worn by sick people to hopefully contain their droplets. The list goes on and on.
I’m sorry. WHAT?! Basically anything U.S. citizens were skeptical about appears in these released emails.
“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.”
“I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location.”
As the new mask industry fills its pockets and stores harass patrons over useless scraps of material.
Is now a good time to point out the the U.S. is considered a high-risk country for travel, while China is low risk? Because these statuses are self-reported. Travel restrictions into and out of other countries literally depend on our government saying, “you should have strict requirements for our citizens”. Or, if you’re China, being like, nah we’re good. However you say that in Chinese.
“For travelers from the USA, US territories and Canada…This will remain in effect as long as the national health authorities of the USA and Canada do not require differently for their traveling citizens.”
Yeah. We’ve been well and truly “Fauci’d”. If you’re curious as to whether or not journalists brought any of this up at the recent press briefing…HAHAHAHA, no. Hundreds of Fauci emails were released. SO MANY EMAILS. And journalists sat through an hour long press briefing without asking a single question about them. Waiting for instructions maybe? If only journalists would just, journo.
Unsurprisingly, Fauci plans to retire. His work here is done.
