Dr. Anthony Fauci sparred with Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota this past Sunday on CBS, over a debate on whether or not it’s in the public’s best interest to continue the endless and aggressive lockdowns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Noem had celebrated her states success in both protecting their vulnerable citizens and keeping their economy open simultaneously during a speech at CPAC. She rebuked Dr. Fauci, saying that his estimates for overloading their hospitals were way off. “He told me…10,000 patients in the hospital… we had a little over 600.” She further commented “Dr. Fauci is wrong a lot.”
Fauci responded to the governors remarks as “unfortunate,” and then suggested that people should “take a look at the numbers. They don’t lie.”
However, Dr. Fauci himself has continued to shift the goalposts throughout the pandemic, claiming that the herd immunity threshold would be reached at 60 to 70 percent, and later, gradually upping the number to 85 percent.
In December, he admitted to lying about the numbers because of concerns he had over polls in which Americans said that only half would be willing to take a vaccine. “I can nudge this up a bit,” he said to himself.
Noem told CBS that in contrast with Fauci: “What I did.. was tell my people the truth.”
Dr. Fauci isn’t going to be willing to let the pandemic go any time soon. It’s brought too much power to him and to other elites who aren’t worried about missing a paycheck to keep their roof. There’s no end in sight of government overbearance. They are unwilling to allow free members of society to actually choose for themselves what is in their own best interest.
