Dr. F. is a government employee, albeit a highly paid one, but how did he end up a multi millionaire??? Could it be that he is in charge of allocating BILLIONS of government grants including the one to the China lab that let loose this pandemic that has engulfed the world???

Inquiring minds want to know, but of course the MSM seems not to care!!!  

 

"Health experts predict uptick in U.S. Covid cases due to new BA.2 variant

U.S. health experts are warning a highly contagious Covid omicron variant, called BA.2, could soon lead to another uptick in domestic coronavirus cases.
Officials such as White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci say BA.2 is about 50% to 60% more transmissible than omicron, but it does not appear to be more severe.
The variant is estimated to account for about 25% or 30% of new cases in the U.S.
 

White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said BA.2 is about 50% to 60% more transmissible than omicron, but it does not appear to be more severe. Health officials continue to stress coronavirus vaccines and boosters remain the best ways to prevent serious illness from the virus.


"It does have increased transmission capability," Fauci said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "However, when you look at the cases, they do not appear to be any more severe and they do not appear to evade immune responses either from vaccines or prior infections."

The variant has already caused cases to increase in China and parts of Europe. It is estimated to account for about 25% or 30% of new cases in the U.S., but it could become the country's most dominant variant, Fauci said.


Fauci said he expects "an uptick in cases" due to BA.2, but not necessarily a massive surge like other variants have caused. That's despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently relaxing mask recommendations for most Americans.

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a board member of Covid vaccine maker Pfizer and a former head of the Food and Drug Administration, also expressed similar views on Sunday regarding BA.2."

Latest scientific update on the new Covid-19 variant BA.2 from a reliable news source - one of many. Dr. Fuaci knows the subject.

That is why he gets the big bucks not because some right wing conspiracy theory source you quoted claims how he got wealthy and claims a Chinese lab. let loose the Covid virus which was proven false. FAKE NEWS

Did he not approve a large government grant to the Wuhan lab  for some dangerous "gain of function" research"? and NO it definitely has not been proven false that this did not let the virus escape!!!

What Is His Net Worth?

Dr. Fauci’s net worth exceeds $8 million, according to financial records made public in January. His wife’s assets bring their total worth to about $10.4 million, those records show.

They show Dr. Fauci’s investments (via an IRA and brokerage accounts) are worth $8.3 million, and his wife’s are worth $2.1 million.

And this is just his REPORTED INCOME...VIVA "THE SWAMP"!!!!

"Coronavirus came from Wuhan market and not Chinese lab, twin studies say

Two studies released by scientists but yet to be published in journals say virus did not emerge from Wuhan Institute of Virology

Martin Pengelly in New York

International scientists on Saturday released two major studies which one participant said made it “extraordinarily clear” a market in Wuhan, China, was the source of the coronavirus which caused the Covid-19 pandemic – and not a Chinese government laboratory, a theory championed in the US by rightwing campaigners, columnists and politicians.

Will we get a single, variant-proof vaccine for Covid?

The question of where Covid-19 came from and how it spread has proved divisive.

Michael Worobey, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Arizona and a co-author on both studies, told the paper: “When you look at all of the evidence together, it’s an extraordinarily clear picture that the pandemic started at the Huanan market.” "

Notice in the article it states only right wing Americans are spreading your propaganda of anti- Chinese disinformation: example in your post: "and NO it definitely has not been proven false that this did not let the virus escape!!!" (the Wuhan lab.) The rest of the World isn't.

Mexicans brought out the welcome wagon  ? " get real hombre-they are in it for the money. What's the truth!!!--Mexico's number one source of income ?

#1--tourisim

# 3-oil

# 4-Avocados--etc.

 

 

Most tourist towns are this way, ever been to Niagara falls? But where I am is defiantly not a tourist area, in fact since I have been here, I have only have seen one other non-local and I think they were just passing through. 

But yes they have been very welcoming where I am. if its for some type of benefit, not sure, but now a days, most people are only looking to get something. its become the norm not the exception. 

But what ever the reason, it is nice when they make an effort.

You want the perfect mask? no fabric known to man can stop a virus--I know what can !!!!--Try putting a plastic bag over your head-HA

Starting to think the plastic bag would be preferable to most of this thread, but I was wondering what will people talk about now that everyone is starting to drop the mask mandates, then I realized they will just become experts overnight in some other area, maybe foreign affairs, War in Ukraine, or maybe climate change?

Mind you the traffic is probably good for this site, as everyone seems to thrive on controversy

You are showing your true colors here!!! You lay out a totally left wing liberal screed about a proven liar and I present a few FACTS disputing it, and this is all you have??? I do not use those cartoon thingies so I will just say it in plain English: SAD!!!

I strongly recommend that you hold your nose and read a book by Dinesh D'Souza that lays out perfectly and the name tell it all: THE BIG LIE. This is a proven tactic that has worked extremely well and was perfected by the Russian Bolsheviks, the German Nazis and the Venezuelan Socialists: Tell huge lies over and over in the State media and the government controlled schools and sooner or later they are accepted by a uninformed public as FACTS!!!

There are many more "studies" or "papers" proving the opposite of your screed above. Of course the MSN has stayed far away from the main question that should have been explored: why was Dr. F allocating US taxpayers money to fund extremely dangerous and controversial "gain of function" research In a CHINESE lab in the first place???

Few have enjoyed quite so spectacular a comeback under President Donald Trump as the conservative polemicist and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

He was sentenced to eight months of confinement followed by 52 months probation."

He was placed on probation with no jail time and later pardoned by Trump since it was an obvious politically motivated conviction. He resigned from the Christian college since they took umbrage to the fact that he got engaged to another woman while he was SEPERATED from his wife. There was NO adultery and NO deception...get your FACTS straight!!!  His book THE BIG LIE lays out the FACTS of his argument with detailed documentation as to the tactics that I outlined to Ferrret above and bears repeating: "perfected by the Russian Bolsheviks, the German Nazis and the Venezuelan Socialists: Tell huge lies over and over in the State media and the government controlled schools and sooner or later they are accepted by a uninformed public as FACTS!!!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinesh_D'Souza

D'Souza's films and commentary have generated considerable controversy due to their promotion of conspiracy theories and falsehoods, as well as for their incendiary nature.

In 2012, D’Souza contributed $10,000 to the senate campaign of Wendy Long on behalf of himself and his wife, agreeing in writing to attribute that contribution as $5,000 from his wife and $5,000 from him. He directed two other people to give Long a total of $20,000 additional, which he agreed to reimburse, and later did. At the time, the Election Act limited campaign contributions to $5,000 from any individual to any one candidate. Two years later, D'Souza pleaded guilty in federal court to one felony charge of using a "straw donor" to make the illegal campaign contribution. He was sentenced to eight months in a halfway house near his home in San Diego, five years' probation, and a $30,000 fine. In 2018, D'Souza was issued a pardon by President Donald Trump."

"The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left

In July 2017, D'Souza published The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. In the book, D'Souza asserts that the 2016 Democratic Party platform was similar to the platform of the Third Reich. The statement received media attention in 2018 when repeated by Donald Trump Jr. PolitiFact gave the claim its "Pants-on-Fire" rating, noting that "only a small number of elements of the two platforms are clearly similar, and those are so uncontroversial that they appear in the Republican platform as well."  Historians refuted the assertion, with University of Maryland historian and Barack Obama critic Jeffrey Herf saying, "There is not the slightest, tiny sliver in which this could be even somewhat accurate." In another review of the book, historian Nicole Hemmer, then of the University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs, wrote: "For a book about secret Nazis, The Big Lie is surprisingly dull ... The Big Lie thus adds little to the no-you're-the-fascist genre on the right". New York Times columnist Ross Douthat criticized the book, saying it was a "plea-for-attention" by D'Souza, and that the author had "become a hack". Douthat further stated, "Because D'Souza has become a professional deceiver, what he adds are extraordinary elisions, sweeping calumnies and laughable leaps."

In an article for The American Conservative, historian and philosopher Paul Gottfried, who has written extensively on the subject of fascism, harshly criticized a PragerU video hosted by D'Souza which maintained that fascism was a leftist ideology. D'Souza also maintained that Italian philosopher Giovanni Gentile, who influenced Italian fascism, was a leftist, to which Gottfried noted that this contradicted the research by "almost all scholars of Gentile’s work, from across the political spectrum, who view him, as I do in my study of fascism, as the most distinguished intellectual of the revolutionary right." "

His book is total right wing crap.

Just another leftist, socialist tactic: BLAME THE MESSENGER!!! The above just proves his point: tell a huge lie over and over again and and a gullible brainwashed public will believe it!!! Have you read the book, or just depend on your handpicked sources???

You mean like the "stolen election", that Covid is just a little flu, that vaccines are a plot to control everyone and that Trump only pardoned people who aren't guilty? 

Yep, seems like there's a lot of brainwashed gullible public who believe such things.

Why would  the nationality of a respected scientist or scientific community make any difference? Would you ignore scientific breakthroughs because they came from places you don't like? Would you ignore studies from China or Russia or Mississippi because???
