The Fauci Agenda Supports the Latest Media Smear of President Trump

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Well, this was inevitable, wasn’t it? – As the Wuhan Virus outbreak pretty clearly hit the top of the curve and began to turn over late in the week, the corrupt hacks at CNN led the media/Democrat effort to now begin revising history. That requires a new narrative, and the new narrative, kicked off on Jake Tapper’s Sunday show, is that “lives could have been saved had the evil Trump just acted sooner.”

Making things easier for Tapper and other corrupt Democrat media toadies to concoct the new narrative is Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is more than willing to cooperate in a smear effort in order to cover his own behind. Unfortunately for Fauci, as you will see in the dueling clips below, his remarks to Tapper on Sunday directly contradict the advice he was giving both the President and the public as late as February 29, a full month after President Trump took the major step of banning non-essential travel into the U.S. from China and other countries:

Fauci on Feb. 29:Right now, at this moment, there is no need to change anything you’re doing on a day-by-day basis. Right now the risk is still low. But this could change. I’ve said that many times even on this program. You’ve got to watch out, because although the risk is low now, you don’t need to change anything you’re doing. When you start to see community spread, this could change.”

The big controversy this morning is that President Trump, in one of his periodic re-tweeting frenzies, re-tweeted a message that ended with this hashtag: “#FireFauci”:

Of course, what the President means by “it’s all on tape” is Fauci’s comments from February 29 and other media appearances that took place long after Trump began to implement major actions to fight the Wuhan Virus. And it isn’t just Fauci who is “on tape”: We have video clips of Nancy Pelosi telling folks in San Francisco’s China Town on Feb. 24 not to worry, to just go out and have a great time. We have clips of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio participating in Chinese New Year celebrations in late February and talking about not cancelling the massive annual St. Patrick’s Day parade as late as March 13. And we wonder why New York City has been the epicenter of the national outbreak?

Here’s de Blasio on March 10:

Here’s Pelosi in February 24:


There are myriad other clips of Democrats and Fauci (but I repeat myself) all over Twitter and other social media today urging people to go out and live their lives like nothing was happening weeks after President Trump stood up his White House Coronavirus Task Force and began to take sweeping actions to protect the public. This is not 1918, when Lenin and Stalin could just have their people go into the libraries and change history by burning all the inconvenient books: People who have been paying close attention know what reality is here, and that won’t change. The objective truth is what it is, much as CNN and Jake Tapper would like to ignore it.

Thus, this narrative, like all the previous Democrat/media hoax narratives attacking President Trump, will fail, although the brainwashed people who still get their news from CNN will be able to maintain their perpetual outrage posture against the POTUS.

Does President Trump actually intend to #FireFauci, as the tweet he re-tweeted advocates? No, not much chance of that, although he no doubt weeks ago realized that the Fauci Agenda (a great name for a Robert Ludlum novel, huh?) did not comport with the agenda of the Trump Administration or the American people. Trump loves having a foil, and whether he intends to be or not, Fauci is about to become the foil as the President this week names his Reopening America task force and moves to gradually restart the economy.

If it is wise to “keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” then Fauci is right where the President wants him to be. Experts in a situation such as this should be there to give advice and otherwise let the elected officials do the talking. To her great credit, Dr. Deborah Birx has largely stuck closely to this model. The attention-hog Fauci hasn’t.

Fauci won’t be fired for Sunday’s latest mouth-shooting betrayal of the President, but he is about to find his advice carrying less and less weight in the days and weeks to come as Trump begins to put America back to work.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    Washington DC and the National Capital Region (NCR) which includes five counties in Maryland and Northern Virginia which are as deep blue as anywhere in the country. Four of the five overwhelm Virginia with Democrat voters; coincidentally a high percentage of people in those counties either work for or are supported by the federal government one way or the other

    “According to new census data, the top five richest counties all have median incomes over $100,000 per year. Those five counties are Loudon County, Virginia, with a median income of $125,672; Falls Church City, VA, at $115,244; Fairfax County, VA, at $114,329; Howard County, Maryland, at $113,800; and Arlington County, VA, at $108,706.” Bing search

    After President Trump wins reelection he must turn the NCR into areas that more resemble other American cities that are Democratic strongholds like Detroit, Memphis, Cleveland, New Orleans, and Camden NJ etc.

    After 9-11, Bush Jr. bloated the NCR with two new cabinet level positions with thousands of new bureaucrats who vote over 80% blue. Bush turned red VA into purple, and ‘the One’ continued to make VA blue.

    Trump can change that dynamic somewhat by dramatically shrinking the NCR federal workforce by submitting budgets that reduce agency and department funding by 10% across the board each year, (2021 – 2025) and moving various departments – such as the department of Agriculture and Interior – out of the NCR altogether.

    My agency spent approximately $1000.00 per month per cubicle in leased office space in Arlington, VA. This bloated government must be reined in and reduced.

    The president talks about and wants to disengage from our dependence on China; he should look for ways to do the same with the states beginning with the Departments of Education, Labor, Health and Human Services etc. These should all be state functions and wholly within their purview.

    1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

      Like so many blue states, Virginia is mostly red except for the high density blue areas surrounding D.C. On the west coast, California, Oregon, and Washington have the same dynamics.

    2. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

      I think the most effective strategy is what he did with Agriculture. Move these departments out into fly-over country. The Deep State exodus is immediate.

  2. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

    As you said, we all knew this was coming. This will be the ultimate test of how much power the national media still has in this country to sway political outcomes. If Trump is soundly re-elected, it sounds a death knell for that strategy. The next several months will be dispositive.

    Nice Ludlum reference–I used to like those books back in the day.

    1. David Blackmon - April 13, 2020

      Ludlum was the best in the business during the entire decade of the 1980s. After that, he fell off rapidly, much like Stephen King did during the same time frame.

      1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

        With King, it was drug-fueled genius. The best book he ever wrote, in my opinion, is ‘It’, and he says he remembers very little about it because he was coked-up the whole time. Of course, eventually the drugs began to impair his writing.

        Once he got clean, and was nearly killed by the hit-and-run driver, his quality really went down the drain.

        1. Carlos Dangler - April 13, 2020

          Thanks, p.g. I didn’t know he was a coke-head. That explains a lot! I liked the “Bachman” books, but when I tried reading some of his later King stuff, it seemed like he was just making S#!t up.
          Oh, wait………..

  3. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

    It’s quite clear that Trump will move to reopen parts of the economy this week, and then the epic battle will begin.

    Good related post at Ace yesterday:

  4. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

    If Fauci keeps up his little personal propaganda campaign, all media access of task team members should again be restricted.

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

      Answer to those who want to keep the economy closed but want to rescue the USPS: re-open the economy!

      My big question is this: how many postal workers have gotten sick?

      On that note, schools close and then what? Kids hang out together. What else they gonna do? They’re developing herd immunity! Not so much the kids with helicopter parents.

      1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

        Since the USPS has for a long time merely been an employment industry for Democrat voters (who actually sends something important via USPS anymore, assuming they even use mail?), you can be sure that this bail-out will be part of any future economic stimulus bill.

        1. Gregg - April 13, 2020

          Privatize the USPS and contract mail delivery the non unionized FED EX. Once the transfer is complete, and pricing is established, let the unionized UPS etc. make bids for their share of the delivery business.

          All postal regulations regarding safety and coverage would remain in effect.

          Sell whatever USPS assets to the private sector delivery companies like we did/do with military surplus equipment. Do a complete IG investigation to find out who screwed the pooch and caused the USPS to be run, well like virtually every other government operation and…

          There, fixed the postal service debt problems.

          1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

            But Washington doesn’t work that way. If it did what you suggest would have happened decades ago.

            It will be traded as a piece of pork to the Dems to move legislation.

  5. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

    Fauci had better learn to tap dance. (Or maybe the little glory-hog Is hoping be on Dancing with the Stars?)

    I see less and less benefit from his participation. But I thought the same thing about Rod Rosenstein. The two appear to be twins, at least thematically.

  6. Gregg - April 13, 2020

    Food for thought:

    The good Dr. Anthony Fauci has been in charge of the effort by the CDC to find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS for close to forty years and hasn’t found one. I’m not saying finding a HIV/AIDS vaccine is easy, but this man’s myopia is breath-taking! Remember, people like him were predicting that AIDS was going to spread like wildfire and it was going to be devastating – especially when Republicans (Reagan and Bush Sr) were in the Whitehouse. When BJ Clinton and ‘the One’ occupied it; not so much – the AIDS ‘crisis’ just sort of faded away. Instead we found effective treatments for HIV/AIDS – but no vaccine.

    HCQ combined with other medications seems to be able to meet that need

    Dr. Anthony Vaccine, and Dr. Deborah Social Distancing, need to go, plain and simple! While I am not totally against developing a safe, effective, inexpensive vaccine for the CHINA virus, I’m not holding my breath and neither should Trump or the country.

    Speaking of vaccines: Vaccines are generally a one time deal with occasional booster shots given many years apart. Our ‘recommended’ (30-40% effective) annual flu shots are just that, shots, and not vaccines per se. It seems highly doubtful that the ‘experts’ at the CDC will be capable of producing a one-time long-lasting ‘vaccine’ for THIS CHINA virus, and certainly not for the likely different strains that will continue to be developed by our adversaries. More likely, it will be an annual shot with a similar 30-40% effectiveness.

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

      Long video – worth watching!

    2. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

      Like so many Democrat bureaucrats, Fauci has failed his way to the top, from HIV to H1N1 to this. Wrong every step of the way. And not just missing by a bit, but wildly off-target. And for this he is rewarded.

      Vaccine development for highly mutable viruses is difficult at best. Ultimately, the best cure for a virus remains the remarkable human immune system. It’s why elderly and other immunocompromised individuals are the high-mortality group.

      As it seems likely that this virus accidentally got out of the Wuhan lab, what should concern everyone is what else is being produced in those labs that might eventually be released in a deliberate manner. For example, there is much speculation and some evidence that the Chinese have engineered a ‘Captain-Trips’ super-flu.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

    The best reason of all to fire Fauci:

    “After President Donald Trump mentioned during a recent press conference the potential benefits of hydroxychloroquine for treating the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), Anthony Fauci from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) quickly piped in that the remedy supposedly isn’t proven, and that people shouldn’t think of it as a “knockout drug.” So why, then, did he praise this very same drug back in 2013 as a treatment for the MERS coronavirus, a relative of COVID-19?

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

      On the use of hydroxychloroquine, he “jumped at the chance to praise the discovery, announcing that it was “particularly encouraging” because these drugs are “widely available,” meaning they can get into the hands of people who need them quickly and easily.”‘

      Same link.

    2. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

      And more:

      “However, now that Trump and his administration are in charge, Fauci is singing a much different tune. Rather than express enthusiasm for the many cases of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that have already been successfully treated with hydroxychloroquine, Fauci felt the need to throw a wet blanket over the whole thing and override Trump’s announcement in a stunning display of disrespect.

      “You’ve got to be careful when you say ‘fairly effective,’” Fauci shot back at Trump after the president suggested, based on Fauci’s own statements from seven years ago, that hydroxychloroquine demonstrated effectiveness against SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). “It was never done in a clinical trial that compared it to anything. It was given to individuals and felt that maybe it worked.”’

      1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

        Fauci is behaving as a CYA bureaucrat (his primary skill) rather than a pragmatic scientific advisor. It is disgraceful.

        He will not be fired, but his input will be largely ignored and his ability to appear on media as long as he is a member of the task force will be eliminated. Thus it would not surprise me if he resigns.

        1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

          Not just a CYA bureaucrat, if you read my post: his position on two similar coronaviruses varied significantly. He encouraged hydroxychloroquine on one, ridiculed it in another. The only difference is the one sitting in the Oval Office. Obviously he loved President Obumbler, and is sabotaging President Trump.

          1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

            I understand, but virtually by definition a CYA government bureaucrat is a liberal Democrat.

          2. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

            There’s a difference between CYA and active opposition: one is literal (cover your hiney) and the other is sabotage. Huge difference.

  8. Gregg - April 13, 2020

    Yep Phineas, the ‘Peter Principle’ has passed Dr. Vaccine at least a dozen years ago, but like herpes (another thing for which there is no vaccine), he remains the preeminent ‘expert’ on all things.

    The template seems to have been established: Create and Allow a new bug to escape and the US and the world’s economy can be severely damaged.

    All that has to happen is for a willing media to announce ‘concern’ of a new virus emerging, or new outbreaks of any other disaster – natural or manmade – and the stock market can be crashed, and the country largely shut down while Trump or any Republican who is in the White house, but remain silent, or otherwise minimize bad news that would adversely affect a Democratic President.

    Look for a push for a Constitutional Amendment that would limit the ability and severely punish any entity that knowingly spreads false ‘news’ to create false panic, along with a strengthening of libel and slander laws.

    We cannot allow the MSM (D) to be able to “yell fire in a crowded theater” every time they want to turn the country into a basket-case just to hurt a GOP president or help a Dem president.

  9. Jimmy MacAfee - April 13, 2020

    So why did Dr. Fauci love hydroxychloroquine under Obama, during MERS (another coronavirus) and say so because it was cheap, available and relatively benign and very hopeful, and now whizz all over the use of it now for this coronavirus, when it is still is cheap, available (less so because of demand) and relatively benign and very hopeful? Why take away hope when the virus we face is arguably far more lethal than the MERS virus?

    Someone should ask the diminutive Dr. .

    Resign, Dr. Fauci. But not before answering the bloody question.

  10. Mike McCalla - April 13, 2020

    If you support getting America back to work, an ad for this effort just came up on Fox Business.
    Their solution makes sense and they don’t request a contribution when you sign the petition so it seems legit. I don’t know if it will make a difference but at least its a chance to speak out.

  11. njlamer - April 13, 2020

    Fauci and the Democrat scum in America have gone too far. It is time for America to throw the enemy out of the country.

  12. brian - April 13, 2020

    Read an article couple days ago in which a General had said the covid virus wasn’t a manufactured virus because it wasn’t deadly enough.

    I’d ague that it was a manufactured virus BECAUSE it wasn’t deadly. It debilitates your enemy more by not being deadly as opposed to creating a high morbidity virus. IMO, this covid smacks of human interference, just to many coincidences and just so narratives. Nope can’t prove it but can’t discount it either, but given communist regimes past behaviours I’d say its more likely than not.

    Odd too is how the chinese have managed to worm their way into so many crucial industries within the USA. Taking over the pharma production, control of large food suppliers, manufacturing of essential supplies like medical equipment and technical gear. Stealing billions in IP and undercutting the IP owners of that tech. Having dirtballs like Gates with microcrap and Googles Alphabet company developing surveillance and AI with the Chinese communist military.

    My bad… sorry for spouting conspiracy theories… I think we should all go back to discussion on the 328 genders and their need for reparations.

    1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

      I don’t think it’s a conspiracy theory; in fact I think at this point an engineered virus escaping from the Wuhan research facility is the likeliest explanation. Whether it was deliberate or not remains the question–I tend to think not, but I could be wrong. Arguing against me is the very striking pattern where most major Chinese cities have not been affected at all.

      1. brian - April 13, 2020

        I think at this point theres no way to really know how badly other cities in China were affected. Everything the communist regime does is oppressive and they are getting pretty good in suppressing information that Gates and Google have helped in that suppression effort.

        So I’m skeptical that other cities weren’t affected but I’m also aware that this virus has massively been overblown. Its NEVER been about health concerns and has ALWAYS been about control. IMO

        1. phineas gage - April 13, 2020

          Agree–and we’re going to have a hard time clawing back our freedoms.

          Look for a national immunity database to be proposed, with cards for people to carry.

  13. Sam-I-Am - April 13, 2020

    Fauci appeared on the “Reverend” Al not-so-Sharpton show to rag on Trump. There goes all credibility for Fauci. When is Al not-so-Sharpton going to pay the millions in back taxes he owes the people of this country?

    1. Gregg - April 13, 2020

      And the DA who won a defamation case against him in the Twanna Brawley matter?
