Watch the Corrupt Reporters Turn on Dr. Fauci in Real Time

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

The immutable truth about today’s corrupt news media is that it operates on a narrative coordinated with the Democrat Party. Reporters are not the legendary – probably imaginary – intrepid souls of black and white noir films from the 1930s and 1940s, dogged pursuers of the truth in their role as the people’s watchdog over those in power. What we call “reporters” today are actually narrative engineers, individuals corrupted by those in power who are given an overarching, politically-motivated narrative by their editors and the people who control their editors, and who go out every day to look only for information that can be used to support that preconceived narrative.

We see this played out in real time every day on our TV screens in the question and answer sessions that take place during the White House Coronavirus Task Force updates. The reporters in the room, with a few exceptions, are not there to actually gather information about the Wuhan Virus that might be useful in the lives of their readers and viewers; they are there to argue with the President, the Vice President and the medical experts in a way that they hope will elicit responses that fit the day’s narrative.

Thanks to his stupid statements made over the week on CNN and MSNBC, yesterday’s narrative coming into the update was all about Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci, in his boundless search for media attention, had decided it would be a great idea this past weekend to do interviews with execrable hacks like CNN’s Jake Tapper and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. During those interviews, he agreed with leading questions from both hacks whose premise was that lives could have been saved if only the evil Orange Man in the White House would have acted sooner.

Which is, logically, unarguable. Hell, if only the President had ESP and had shut down the most prosperous economy the world has ever seen in, let’s say, 2017 in anticipation of this virus, then all those people who the virus has killed might be alive today. Or maybe half of them would have died by suicide or deprivation after losing their jobs, homes and ability to purchase food. Or maybe they and millions of others would have all died because we would be living the real-life version of Mad Max and/or the Hunger Games right now had that taken place in 2017. Who knows?

But the narrative was set, and all Fauci had to do was to stay silent while the narrative engineers pounded on the President in order to keep it going. But, to his credit, the overly-loquacious Doctor chose not to do that. Instead, he made a point of attempting to clarify those weekend remarks in a way that not only killed the “Trump acted too late” narrative, but also decimated the corrupt media’s “Trump never listens to the experts” narrative that they have repeatedly attempted to mount over the past three months.

In the clip below you will see Fauci state categorically that President Trump not only listens to the advice of the “experts,” but has responded to each and every one of their recommendations. Watch:

 

Transcript:

Fauci: I had an interview yesterday that I was asked a hypothetical question, and hypothetical questions can sometime get you into some difficulty because it’s what would have, or could have. The nature of the hypothetical question was, if in fact we had mitigated earlier, could lives have been saved?

And the answer to my question was, as I always do, and I’m doing right now, perfectly honestly say ‘yes.’ Obviously, mitigation helps. I have been up here many times telling you that mitigation works. So, if mitigation works, and you instigate it and initiate it earlier, you will probably have saved more lives. If you initiated it later, you probably would have lost more lives. You initiate it at a certain time.

That was taken as a way that maybe something somehow was at fault here. So, let me tell you from my experience, and I can only speak from my own experience, is that we had been talking before any meetings that we had about the pros and the cons, the effectiveness or the not, of strong mitigations. So the discussions were going on, mostly among the medical people, about what that would mean.

The first and only time that Dr. Birx and I went in and made a formal recommendation to the President to actually have a “shutdown,” in the sense of not really a shutdown but to really have strong mitigation, we discussed it. Obviously there would be concern by some that in fact that might have some negative consequences. Nonetheless, the President listened to the recommendation and went to the mitigation. 

The next, second time, that I went with Dr. Birx into the President and said, 15 days are not enough: We need to go 30 days, obviously there were people who had a problem with that because of the potential secondary effects. Nonetheless, at that time, the President went with the health recommendations, and we extended it another 30 days. 

So, I can only tell you what I know, and what my recommendations were. But clearly, as happens all the time, there were interpretations to that response to a hypothetical question that I just thought would be very nice for me to clarify because I didn’t have a chance to clarify. Thank you.

[He thinks he’s done here: Boy, was he in for a rude awakening. He had just decimated not one, but two narratives almost all of those reporters had carried into that room with them, and they were not going to let him get away so easily.]

Reporter: [As Fauci tries to leave the podium] Do you remember the date?

Fauci: No, I, to be honest with you, I don’t even know what the date was. But I can just tell you that the first and only time that we went in and said that we need to do mitigations strongly, the response was ‘yes, we’ll do it.’

Reporter: What did he do? Did he lift the travel restrictions?

Fauci: No, the travel restriction is separate. That was whether or not we want to go into a mitigation stage, of 15 days of mitigation. The travel was another recommendation, when we went in and said we probably should be doing that, and the answer was ‘yes.’ And then another time was we should do it with Europe, and the answer was ‘yes.’ And the next time, we should do it with the UK, and the answer was ‘yes.’

Reporter: In this interview, you said there was pushback. Where did that pushback come from?

Fauci: No, that was the wrong choice of words. You know what it was? When people discuss, not necessarily in front of the President, when people discuss, they say, ‘well, this is going to have maybe a harmful effect on this, or that. So, it was a poor choice of words. There wasn’t anybody saying ‘no, you shouldn’t do that.

Reporter: [Now clearly angry that the guy has destroyed her directed narratives, which might force her to actually engage in independent thought processes she hasn’t used in years.] Are you doing this voluntarily, or did the President advise you…

Fauci: No, I’m doing it….everything I do is voluntarily. Please. Don’t even imply that.

[End]

Wow, that look on Fauci’s face at the end for the hack reporter just reeks of contempt and disgust. It was his best public moment during this entire three-month process.

Now, I’m trying hard to be charitable this morning, and the most charitable thing that can be said for Dr. Fauci is that he is an attention hog who does too many media appearances for his own good. Making matters worse, he obviously doesn’t understand the nature of today’s corrupt corporate news media operations, and stupidly thinks people like Al Sharpton, Jake Tapper and the hack reporter from CBS [Paula Reid, whose husband lobbies congress for Chinese interests] who was peppering him with slanted questions in that clip are his friends and have his best interests at heart.

Let’s go with that charitable assessment of Fauci, and let’s further say that his naivete’ about the nature of the media leads him to believe that if he just answers their questions as honestly as he can that all will be sweetness and light with his world.

If that bit of charity is indeed an accurate description of Fauci and his mindset, then the best thing anyone can do for him would be to counsel him to keep his mug off of the nation’s TV screens, except for these daily Task Force updates. Because what he has been doing for the past three months, repeatedly creating these media-generated dust-ups that undermine the efforts of the Task Force, has been incredibly counterproductive, not just for him and the President, but for the entire country.

Enough.

That is all.

    I have two problems with Dr. Fauci (besides unwisely appearing with ghouls and goblins at CNN)

    1. He downplayed Hydroxychloroquine, after having extolled its virtues in 2013 re. another coronavirus, MERS.

    2. He has never criticized – publicly – the WHO or the incompetent China-stooge running it. Birx, at least, gave WHO and the boob a sharp elbow.

    I’m satisfied that WHO will be dealt with, because the President gave it a well-deserved gut-punch; I am not satisfied with Fauci, any more than I was with Rod Rosenstein. He still has work to do, in his position, but he also has some issues to resolve (conflicts between former positions and new ones, and support for the corrupt WHO.)

    If Fauci suddenly has developed great respect for President Trump – (and it may be that he has) – then that would be a good thing. My respect for the President is greater than ever, in part because he has shown a deep sensitivity toward the sick and dying, something that the Kenyan was completely incapable of demonstrating..

    1. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

      Completely agree with you on this. Fauci is either weak or corrupt, may in fact be both.

      He needs to either get fully on-board, or resign. In this crisis we can’t afford these political straddling games.

  2. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

    Dr. Fauci aside, his support of Tedros should be waning, not waxing:

    Quote from article:
    “A World Health Organization official said Monday that she suspected human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus “right from the start,” beginning on Dec. 31, 2019.
    But WHO officials echoed Chinese authorities and denied any suggestion of human-to-human transmission for weeks after Dec. 31.

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

      Maybe she’s auditioning for head of WHO? She’s a little late with her protestations, and Fauci should have known of her concerns, but he’s in love with Tedros, whom he calls “a friend.”

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

        The censors appear to be owned by the CCP?

  3. Jumper Bones - April 14, 2020

    I just learned about this 78 minute video on TheDonald.win, it’s got 4.5 million views, but doesn’t show as “trending”. Weird:

    Formatting on the main page is off, for some reason.

    Re.: Fauci, it is good to be charitable, but I rather suspect that there was a short and very direct meeting with Trump sometime on Monday morning.

    In their glass bubble, the media has no idea what they are doing in these daily press briefings. I’m not exactly a social butterfly, but even so I know virtually no one that trusts them.

    However, as they are supported by corporate welfare via leftist millionaires, they don’t care about that or ratings, and simply cater to the same like-minded 20%. It’s the reason CNN can keep doing what it’s doing despite ratings that are lower than the Home Shopping Network.

    It’s incredibly destructive to the nation,but they’re going to drive it home to the inevitable conclusion over the next several months.

  5. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

    Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said that she knew “right from the start” that human-to-human transmission was likely. (Quotes from Daily Caller, as linked above.)

    Why didn’t Tedros (and Butthead?)

    1. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

      Just playing devil’s advocate, not defending the WHO corruptocrats, but how did she know?

    2. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

      Just because in the linked article she says ‘may be’ simply because it is a respiratory pathogen. But different respiratory pathogens, including viruses, have different transmission rates, and we don’t fully understand why.

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

        She has a background in influenza and coronaviruses, according to her.

      2. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

        In a 55 minute video I posted previously, with the segment highlighted, it explains how the virus was made:

        Watch around and after the 10 minute mark.

    I posted the information about coming food shortages on another site and got driven off as a troll–so be it.

    However, this morning sundance has more extensive reinforcing information.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/04/14/phase-five-supply-chain-with-a-message-from-a-dairy-farmer/

    It is now the driving reason why the shutdown has to end.

    1. brian - April 14, 2020

      I mentioned here on another of Mr Blackmons articles with a rhetorical question about how it is that the communist chinese govt has managed to worm their way into many of the US’s critical industries.

      They’ve managed to gain significant control over key industries and will use them as weapons against you. Like technology, food supply, manufacturing and pharma. We ALL know who has been helping them achieve this… Dem politicals. No surprises there I’m sure.

      Then you have slimy low lifes like Bill Gates with microcrap and Alphabet company Google developing AI and surveillance software for the chinese communist govt which to me is likely treasonous. Prhaps there needs to be a inquiry on how this all came about… Maybe prosecute those that aided and abetted the chinese infiltration…. won’t hold my breath tho…

    Apparently Fauci relishes the TV facetime. He did a good job in the clip, but being in government for much of his 79 years, and supposedly being brilliant, I find it difficult to believe he was duped into the mistake of responding to the loaded ‘hypothetical’ questions being launched at him. Trying to be “charitable”, I’ll give the Dr. a “mulligan” here, but from now on he had better stick to doctoring and not public-relationing. If he gets duped again then his anti-Trump hackdom will be forever revealed.

    As far as I’m concerned he already has three strikes against him: Love letters to Walking Eagle, Promoting HCQ during ‘the One’ denigrating it during Trump, and his vaccine crusade to the exclusion of everything else in resolving this ‘pandemic’, plus being in favor of keeping the economy crippled for the foreseeable future.

    We already have enough Camera-Hoggs in the federal government e.g. Schumer, Graham, Pelosi, we don’t need the CDC’s ‘experts’ doing the same.

    Most, if not all, of these ‘live’ conversations on these Sunday morning and other discussion platforms are well orchestrated and at least discussed in the ‘green’ room before hand. I’ll never forget when that hack Dan Rather tried to sandbag Bush the first in a 1988 interview on his role in Iran-Contra when it was agreed Rather would not ‘go there’, yet he went there. Bush in a rare display of guts took off the mic and walked out of the interview leaving the set, and CBS went to black for a little while. That probably did more to ensure the Bush election – he finally shed the “wimp” image – than anything else.

    One other thought on the ‘reporters’ being corrupted by their editors etc. Most of the ‘reporters’ are young and have been through the leftist concentration camps which masquerade as journalism schools of higher learning, so they are willingly led by their MSM (D) masters. As I have said before here: if these ‘reporters’ were told to be favorable to the Trump agenda, they surly would be every bit as much a slavish sycophant to Trump as they were to ‘the One’, Walking Eagle, BJ Clinton, Gaffe O. Joe, etc. In terms of integrity, honesty and real reporting, they might as well be cardboard cutouts with speakers coming out of their mouths with their master’s prerecorded ‘messages’.

    Years ago Rush spoke about what is being taught in journalism school and why did people go to school to become journalists and the overwhelming answer of the students was “to change the world”. Um, journalists are supposed to REPORT the news, not filter it for the purpose of “changing the world”.

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

      His disparate treatment in 2013 of hydroxychloroquine compared to now is actually more glaring than his vaccine crusade, because it IS his vaccine crusade. Bill Gates would be proud.

      Bill Gates sucks.

    2. Boarwild - April 14, 2020

      I was in the “Journalism” program @ UMD back in the ‘90’s. I lasted one semester. It was nothing more than leftist indoctrination into left wing groupthink.

      1. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

        You and I might have crossed paths, although I was a zoology graduate student.

        Your description of the place is accurate.

  8. Jimmy MacAfee - April 14, 2020

    My feeling about the President’s willingness to keep Fauci aboard:

    If a former enemy joins you, and switches sides, don’t keep him as an enemy. Just like the President has invited Bernie Bros to come aboard the Trump Train. Dr. Fauci still has a ways to go, to show that he’s no longer an enemy, but there is a concept that only the Bible can make clear:

    “When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” (Proverbs 16:7)

    If Dr. Fauci is no longer an enemy, then Praise the Lord.

    Later, folks.

    Zero new cases in NYC today. End this.

  10. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

    Not to mention that more than 90% of the nation is only minimally affected. Keep the big urban centers on further lockdown if necessary, but the rest of us have to go back to work.

  11. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

    This chart is informative:

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

    Over half of the U.S. deaths are clustered in New York, Michigan, and Louisiana (primarily in the high density urban centers of NYC, Detroit, and New Orleans).

  12. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

    And the final number is going to be right in line with a typical influenza annual death toll.

    The damage from this hysterical overreaction is incalculable.

  13. phineas gage - April 14, 2020

    This is why the Dems are stuck with Slow Joe:

    https://twitter.com/PARISDENNARD/status/1248759737358987264

    If they try to switch to their new darling Cuomo, Trump’s numbers in this demographic are going to get much larger, which will make his re-election a fait accomplit.

    It will be Biden with a black female as his running mate–I’m still guessing Abrams a.k.a. Tank.
