– The Washington Times – Monday, October 4, 2021

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Joe Biden administration’s go-to guy for coronavirus policy, said in a wildly curious statement that the scores of people streaming illegally across America’s borders are “absolutely not” to blame for coronavirus numbers in the United States.

He’s either delusional. Or he’s trying to deceive.

Either way, it’s long past time for Fauci to be considered a trusted source on anything to do with the coronavirus.

He’s the guy who said if one face mask is good, two face masks are better — that it’s just “common sense” to slap more layers of cloth on top of mouths and noses as a means of stopping a minuscule, microscopic virus from spreading. That was around the time he also suggested gloves and plastic face shields were potentially great coronavirus stoppers. That was around the time he also said flattening the curve, no wait, vaccinating the majority of adults, no wait, vaccinating children, no wait, giving two, nope, three booster shots to all American adults — that these were the keys to returning to normalcy. And that was around the time he was busily redefining what American normalcies would be, post-pandemic.

In other words: It’s time to take away King Fauci’s crown.

He’s been allowed to play the part of “I am zee law” for far too long, and all he’s done is to chastise, shame, lecture and criticize those who refuse to abide his draconian clamps on individual liberties and those who refuse to play along with his shift of society and culture and politics from individualism to collectivism.

He’s the science world’s equivalent of a scam artist.

He says one thing, calls it science, then flips and says the next day the complete opposite, yet calls it science. And all along his flipping and flopping and randomly issued bits and pieces of guidance and recommendation — that he knows full well is then twisted by a left-leaning media and a power-hungry and control-questing Democrat Party into policy — all along he’s washed his hands of culpability of the massive devastations his suggestions and recommendations leading to policies and orders that have come. Business owners have lost their businesses. School students have lost their scholarships, their athletic opportunities, their graduation ceremonies, their normal in-class experiences. Families have lost their incomes and financial independence. Communities have suffered suicides, addiction rates. Churches have been in upheaval. The list of societal collapses goes on.

And there stands Fauci, amid the chaos, shrugging his shoulders and saying, “Well I’m not a policy-maker. I only talk about the science.”

Now he’s casting shadows on the common-sense conclusion that the thousands of border-crossers who aren’t even tested for the coronavirus could, in at least some small way, but more likely in a very large way — that these possibly COVID-19 carrying illegals are to blame for the spread of the coronavirus, as well as the variants, across the United States.

“This is not driven by immigrants,” Fauci said on “State of the Union” on CNN.

“This is the problem within our country — the same way it’s a problem with other countries throughout the world,” he said. “The idea, when you have 700,000 Americans dead and millions and millions and millions of Americans getting infected, you don’t want to look outside to the problem.”

Outside to the problem?

These people are inside the problem — they’re crossing from outside America to inside America, bringing with them the coronavirus and coronavirus variants, and God knows what else, for that matter.

“Certainly, immigrants can get infected,” Fauci said. “But they’re not the driving force. … Let’s face reality here.”

Reality? Which reality?

Because reality, to Fauci, much like science, means whatever he wants it to mean.
