Liar, Liar, Fauci’s on Fire
An Extremely Abbreviated List of Dr. Fauci's Lies (#2 was just over the top)
Dr. Anthony Fauci (Fauci) has been leading our nation’s response during this pandemic. While politicians are known not be truthful frequently, this should not be the case for Fauci, but unfortunately it is. While being the highest paid federal employee, Fauci is also doctor and scientist. Being a doctor and scientist, you should be held to a higher standard in how truthful one is versus a politician (though politicians should be held accountable also). Americans trust scientist and doctors more than elected officials, as they should. This makes doctors’ or scientists’ lies even more egregious. This make Fauci’s lies even more devastating than the lies of our elected officials as it erodes the public’s confidence in people that should be trusted. Most of us know not to trust politicians or lawyers, usually one in the same.
This list is an extremely abbreviated list of Dr. Fauci’s lies of either omission or outright statement contrary to truth of which he knows. For a full list of Fauci’s lies read “The Real Anthony Fauci” by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. This list is in no particular order.
Lie #1 Masks
I don’t know which of Fauci’s statements he said are contrary to his scientific beliefs, but in a short period of time, he made completely different statements on regard to mask effectiveness and use.
March 8, 2020 Fauci proclaimed, “The masks are important for someone who is infected to prevent them from infecting someone else. Now when you see people and look at the films in China, South Korea, or whatever, everyone is wearing a mask. Right now in the United States people should not be walking around with mask.”.
He continued, “Right now there is no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you are in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet. But it is not providing the perfect protection people think it is.”
Finally he said, “When you think masks, you should think of health care providers needing them and people being ill.”.
Then in June of 2020, Fauci says he lied to the American people to prevent a run on masks. It is too long to transcribe, but this is the video. He said he mislead us for our own good.
Conclusion: I think his real lie is that masks are effective, and that his March statements were truthful. So, this is either a lie in March 2020 or it is a double lie in June of 2020 (where he lies about his lie). I think the latter, but who knows with this guy.
Lie #2 His Childhood Vaccination Mandate
In a talk on September 13, 2021, Fauci referred to the school he attended as a kid and said (0:35) “I don’t know what school you went to, but the school I went to you had to be vaccinated against Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Polio, or otherwise you couldn’t go to school. So, it is not something new to mandate vaccines for school children”.
How is this a lie? Dr. Fauci will be 81 next month, he was born in 1940. He would have been a child in grade school in the 1940s. The polio vaccine was not invented yet, it was invented in the 1950s. The measles vaccine was licensed in 1963. The mumps vaccine was licensed in 1967. The rubella vaccine was licensed in 1969. How could Fauci been mandated to take vaccines at his childhood school before they were invented? Why would anyone fact check him? After all, he is science.
Lie #3 Natural Immunity (Lie of Omission)
When asked by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN about natural immunity and why Covid recovered people should get the vaccine. He replied "You know, that's a really good point, Sanjay. I don't have a really firm answer for you on that," then continued "That's something that we're going to have to discuss regarding the durability of the response," he continued more "The one thing that paper from Israel didn't tell you is whether or not — as high as the protection is with natural infection — what's the durability compared to the durability of a vaccine?"
Why is this a lie? Fauci in his years of dealing with infectious diseases should know that for that last at least 2,500 years man has known about immunity to disease. He should know that people recovered from Sars-Cov-1 have immunity 17 years later. If he doesn’t know this, he should not have the role he has.
Lie (possible perjury) #4 Funding Gain of Function Research
Under Oath testifying, Fauci said the NIH does not fund gain of function research. Senator Dr. Rand Paul disagreed with him and presented evidence. As most liars do, they attack the accuser as Fauci did with Dr. Paul. You should just watch the exchange.
How is this a lie? The NIH admitted that they did fund gain of function research. There is a lot more to this lie and I am sure Dr. Paul will not let this likely perjury stand.
Lie #5 Fauci states a Henry Ford hospital peer reviewed study about Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is “that study is a flawed study”.
How is this a lie? This is difficult to really prove beyond all doubt that it is a lie. However, there are many studies that have been done to show the HCQ effectiveness. Fauci was lying or misleading because the Henry Ford study showed great results and he didn’t care that many scientific peers reviewed the study. This lie allowed the FDA to revoke the EUA that was given to HCQ in the fight against Covid. There is so much more to how and why the HCQ drug is having misinformation spread about it in the media, led by Dr. Fauci. This lie potentially could have costs tens of thousands of lives or more.
This is an extremely short list of Fauci’s lies. Early in the pandemic he admitted that is lied (about masks), but it was for a good reason. There is no reason for a scientist or doctor to lie about studies, facts, or data. Fauci lies about all of them. I encourage you to read RFK Jr.’s book on Fauci as it goes into so much depth in the death and destruction that this man has caused in his tenure at NIH, while enriching himself. How many times can this man mislead us before we stop trusting all scientists?
