(Congressional Agenda) – If you bought into what was being fed to the public by Dr. Anthony Fauci concerning the efficacy of social distancing (staying six feet apart from each other in order to prevent the spread of COVID) I have some really bad news. Fauci himself confessed on Wednesday there wasn’t any real science in existence to backup the strategy. Say, I could have sworn that was something we tried to tell everyone, but due to fear mongering of the radical left, folks were far too busy freaking out in terror to hear us.
“After two days of interviews behind closed doors to the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, a news release posted on the website of the House Oversight Committee revealed that ‘Fauci claimed that the ‘6 feet apart’ social distancing recommendation promoted by federal health officials was likely not based on any data. He characterized the development of the guidance by stating ‘it sort of just appeared,’” The Western Journal’s Jack Davis wrote.
Now that is absolutely infuriating. Fauci, along with many Democrats and activists, shamed people, pushing and prodding them to continue social distancing. And now the so-called leading expert on the pandemic comes out and says there was no real reason to be doing it? Maddening.
Panel Chairman Rep. Brad Wenstrup, an Ohio Republican, stated that Fauci told lawmakers “the policies and mandates he promoted may unfortunately increase vaccine hesitancy for years to come.”
“He testified that the lab leak hypothesis — which was often suppressed — was, in fact, not a conspiracy theory,” Wenstrup disclosed. For those unfamiliar with it, the lab leak theory posits that the origin of the coronavirus can be traced back to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, not from natural sources as the doctor originally claimed.
The release then pointed out this admission has come “nearly four years after prompting the publication of the now infamous ‘Proximal Origin’ paper that attempted to vilify and disprove the lab leak hypothesis.”
It then added that Fauci, who denied applying pressure to the Central Intelligence Agency concerning the lab-leak theory, “played semantics with the definition of a ‘lab-leak.'”
“Dr. Fauci’s transcribed interview revealed systemic failures in our public health system and shed light on serious procedural concerns with our public health authority. It is clear that dissenting opinions were often not considered or suppressed completely,” Wenstrup explained.
On the second day of testimony, Fauci declared that he advised colleges to place students under vaccine mandates.
Davis continued, “A release summarizing the first day of Fauci’s testimony quoted Wenstrup as saying that Fauci ‘signed off on all domestic and foreign research grants without reviewing the proposals and admitted that he was unaware if NIAID conducted oversight of the laboratories they fund.’ Fauci, who is now retired, was director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.”
“It is also concerning that the face of our nation’s response to the world’s worst public health crisis ‘does not recall’ key details about COVID-19 origins and pandemic-era policies,” Wenstrup asserted. During his testimony, the doctor claimed more than 100 times that he could not recall some of the events he was being questioned about. Gee, sounds like cognitive decline to me. Maybe Fauci was unfit for duty? Though it seems awfully convenient that he can’t remember. Almost like he’s hiding things from the general public. That’s basically been his modus operandi from the very beginning.
“The release said Fauci continued to deny, as he has in the past, that the National Institutes of Health funded ‘gain-of-function research in Wuhan,’ where COVID-19 emerged, noting that Fauci ‘repeatedly played semantics with the definition of gain-of-function in an attempt to avoid conceding that NIH funded potentially dangerous research in China,'” the report noted.
Congressman Michael Cloud, a Texas Republican and a member of the panel that conducted the interview of Fauci, went on to say the doctor has an “amazing ability to either forget what happened or then to find ways to shirk any sort of responsibility for the influence that was had,” according to a piece published by the New York Post.
“They wash their hands of any sort of responsibility, saying, ‘Oh, those decisions were made by school districts.’ But the school districts know, if you don’t follow the guidance that’s coming out of the federal government, you open yourselves up to lawsuits,” Cloud commented.
“He says he’s still not convinced that there was learning loss — that in his view, that’s still really open for discussion. I think [if] you ask any parent, they’ll tell you it was a major hit on their child’s development,” he continued.
Wenstrup also remarked that Fauci confessed “the mandate could increase vaccine hesitancy” in the future.
“I can’t get into his mind, but I think he felt it was the right thing to do because he thought it would save lives, but he basically was saying the lesson learned [was it] didn’t get into the psyche of America,” Wenstrup explained. “We have a problem in our country, and now people don’t want to get any vaccines. The mRNA vaccine is different. The messaging was never really good, and I don’t think America ever felt like they were being educated. They were getting indoctrinated.”
In closing, Wenstrup affirmed that transcripts of the interviews conducted with Fauci will be released to the public in the near future.
