Anthony Fauci: Washington’s liar-in-chief
In the past few days a slew of 2020 emails by Dr. Anthony Fauci have revealed his dishonest, incompetent, corrupt, and political agenda during the entire COVID-19 epidemic.
The emails have revealed he lied about his connections with the Chinese Wuhan lab. They reveal that he knew all along that the virus was almost certainly leaked from that lab. They also reveal that he immediately worked to prevent these facts from being revealed publicly, lying if necessary to do it and successfully forcing publications to withdraw news stories based on his lies.
Of all these revelations, however, the one email that best illustrates Fauci’s dishonesty and venality was the one in February 2020 — before the epidemic had taken hold and before any shutdowns had been imposed — where he bluntly admitted what has been known for more than a century, that the general widespread use of masks by people who are not sick is pointless and will accomplish nothing.
In his words:
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 the 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 vey low risk location. Your instincts are correct, money is best spent on medical countermeasures such as diagnostics and vaccines. [emphasis mine]
Less than two months later, Fauci had completely changed his tune, claiming that Americans needed to wear masks all the time. At the time he claimed this was based on new research that suggested you could get COVID simply by speaking to another person, but that research was unbelievable and untrustworthy from the beginning, and was very quickly found to be false. Yet, Fauci continued to demand mask use by everyone for the next year, even calling for people to wear two masks in January 2021.
Yet he knew all along that this was garbage advice, that the science, as I and many others have repeatedly reported, shows that indiscriminate unsanitary use of masks is not only useless, it likely increases the chances you will get sick.
Fauci is corrupt, dishonest, a liar, and the worst sort of Washington bureaucrat. He should be fired immediately, and possibly brought up on criminal charges of perjury for the number of times he testified falsely to Congress on all these issues.
Worse, he well symbolizes much of the entire Washington establishment, a group of people more interested in power and skimming cash from the taxpayer than doing the right thing for the nation.
And finally, to everyone else who genuflected to the saintly words of Fauci, it is time to accept reality and take off the damn mask! He never believed in it, and only demanded it because he thought Americans were fools who could be easily manipulated. By still wearing it now you are only proving that his low opinion of you is completely right.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
