What’s the deal with Dr. Fauci? Why are leftists panicking over him not being present at President Trump’s coronavirus press briefing today? Why has the media been trying so hard to make Dr. Fauci seem like the only person on the planet who understands the seriousness of the Wuhan, China flu? Why was Dr. Fauci so laid back in his approach to the swine flu during Barack Obama’s presidency that led to the death of almost 13K Americans?
Catherine Evans of the American Thinker writes – For all of Dr. Fauci’s daily appearances and scientific evaluations of the data, questions still abound.
For example: Why did Dr. Fauci not sound the alarm in 2009 as urgently as he has done in 2020?
Why did he not insist we ‘force’ hospitals to cancel elective tests and surgeries to save room for future infected patients during the H1N1 outbreak?
Why did he pointedly target restaurants and bars in his concern for the spread of the coronavirus but not H1N1?
As a specialist in infectious diseases, and as a self-described “man of science,” why support the closing of schools, businesses, and home quarantine for one virus and not the other?
H1N1’s duration from April 2009 to April 2010 with 60 million infected and almost 13,000 deaths in the U.S. alone was no less serious than the 2020 coronavirus so why was Dr. Fauci taking a more measured approach in 2009?
In 2009, at the height of the H1N1 spread in the U.S., a very calm Dr. Fauci appeared in a video where he took a much different approach to the virus while Barack Obama was President of the United States:
Dr. Fauci: “Parents should not send their kids to school if they’re sick, if you’re sick don’t go to work … avoid places where there are people who are sick and coughing, now that’s a difficult thing to do,” he said. “…You can’t isolate yourself from the rest of the world for the whole flu season.”
Additionally, nowhere in the 2009 interview does Dr. Fauci specifically mentions restaurants and bars as hot spots for the transmission of the H1N1 virus as he does in his recent interview with Yahoo News: “When I see crowded bars and crowded restaurants, it is a little bit unnerving,” Fauci said. “It’s clear that those are the situations that put people very much at risk.” Talk about wielding power. Take a look around the country. Local and state officials have heeded Fauci’s “unnerving” concern and ordered restaurants to close their dining areas or adhere to a 10-person limit. In cities and small towns everywhere, the restaurant industry, which includes owners, suppliers, chefs, line cooks, waitstaff, and bartenders, has been decimated.
Restaurants and bar owners, along with their employees, are the hardest hit economically by the virus. In my city of Richmond, Virginia, 75% to 80% of restaurant staff have been laid off. One hundred restaurants have closed and those not following Governor Ralph ‘Blackface’ Northam’s 10-person limit have been advised they could lose their business licenses and possibly risk police action if they do not comply. Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci lamented to Yahoo! News that he is unable to get his usual seven-mile daily run in due to his 19-hour days helping the American people, but he’s hopeful “sometime soon we’ll get back to some normality where I can exercise the way I like to exercise.”
From the Last Refuge – Perhaps one way to help see through the professional obfuscation, and identify just exactly how political Dr. Fauci is, would be to compare and contrast Dr. Fauci under President Obama.
According to the CDC final estimate of 2009 U.S. H1N1 cases (published in 2011): from April 12, 2009, to April 10, 2010, approximately 60.8 million U.S. cases, 274,304 U.S. hospitalizations, and 12,469 U.S. deaths occurred due to H1N1. That’s the empirical data.
Perhaps a look into two of Dr. Fauci’s love letters to Hillary, that were revealed in the Wikileaks email dump in 2016 are worth considering when assessing the esteemed expert’s views on the current coronavirus pandemic versus the 2009 H1N1 pandemic that killed over 12,000 Americans.
Here’s Dr. Fauci’s first email to Hillary on June 2, 2012. In this email, Dr. Fauci asks Hillary aides to relay a message to Hillary about her speech that “brought me to tears,” calling it a “bases-loaded home run.” Dr. Fauci was literally tripping over himself with praise for the crooked secretary of state, asking her aides to tell Hillary Clinton, “I love her more than ever” adding, “you guys too, of course.”
Here’s the second email from Dr. Fauci to Hillary aide Cheryl Mills, praising Hillary, asking her to relay a message to Hillary: “Please tell her that we all love her and are very proud to know her.”
With Dr. Fauci’s clear obsession with America’s most crooked Democrat, is it any wonder then, that in 2009, Dr. Fauci did such a great job of downplaying the H1N1 outbreak while Barack Obama golfed and no one in America even noticed?
Today, the Gateway Pundit reported about how in 2009, when the Swine Flu – H1N1 influenza was sweeping across the country Obama went golfing.
Funny how the media never brings this up.
Watch when one brave reporter asked the question about Barack Obama golfing of Obama’s press secretary, as the media laughs.
Obama was hands off-
Beginning of 2009 H1N1 Pandemic.
Astonishing comparing the behavior of Press then and now!
*Articles/Media never blamed Obama- even with lack of vaccine.
Obama gave speeches/no quest.
💥60.8 million cases
