I have written several postings on Dr. Fauci. As a matter of fact he has his own listing in my Blog, just like President Trump has. In the Trump Administration he had the unique position with the press, of actually being trusted. Fauci has been a medical advisor for several administrations, so his face has became familiar to most households. He was involved in the Aids pandemic in the 1980s. His area of expertise is the field of virology. However, I noticed one thing with Dr. Fauci, he always seemed to take the opposite stance of the Trump Administration. Every time he shuffled or did a two-step or flip-flop, Trump got the blame for it.

The major example is the drug Hydroxychloroquine, there are several other examples as well. I have discussed them in previous articles. A few weeks after he was announced by President Trump as the new senior advisor to the Pandemic response team which was to be lead by Vice President Pence, I started losing faith in him. I voiced this opinion in my early postings. My messages are on record in my early blog postings, if you want to check. I started posting them even before I started my blog.

He also is in the unique position of being the only senior advisor to the Trump administration to keep his job under the Biden Administration. So that should tell you all you need to know about the “good” doctor. When I think of Fauci’s role in the Trump administration, one famous example comes to mind, the serpent in the garden of eden. Every individual of Christian faith knows the story of Adam and Eve and the Serpent. The serpent corrupted Eve and convinced her to eat the fruit of the forbidden tree. Well Fauci played a similar role in the Trump administration. He whispered words of dissent and divisiveness every chance he had. He changed his position so many times , that many people stopped listening to him. I am not the only one to call Dr. Fauci Flip Flop Fauci, though I think I was the first one to voice my doubts about him. He now, continues this role under the Biden administration. However, it is now at the behest of the administration. He is being used as a tool to keep the general populace off guard and to keep them uncertain of their future. The left leaning democrats want the masses to be afraid of the virus, so that they can maintain their strangle hold on us. In this article I will chronicle his flip flop record. In previous articles I discussed his ties with China and big pharma.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has flip-flopped or been proven wrong on a host of different coronavirus measures and recommendations since the virus first hit the United States last winter.

Fauci, the leading White House coronavirus task force member, has changed positions or faced scientific data proving his stances are flawed on issues ranging from mask wearing to the severity of the virus and from asymptomatic spread to effective treatments for patients, among other issues, since January.

Interestingly enough Dr. Fauci is the highest paid person in the US government. Yep it’s true he makes more than even the President of the United States. There’s interesting things about his background, but those get into conspiracy theories ideas and discussions. I usually try to avoid conspiracy theories like I would a rabid dog. Mainly because I just don’t like them and they make me look stupid if I repeat them. Besides I can look stupid on my own without any help of a conspiracy theory, but that’s a whole Nother story.

When President Trump was told about the seriousness of the virus he stopped all Travel from China to the U.S. Eventually that travel restriction affected other countries in the world including the United Kingdom. What is interesting is Dr. Fauci recommended against this move, saying that it was perfectly safe to fly on planes. Obviously if we had the virus here in the United States it didn’t swim across the ocean by itself it actually had to get on a plane and get here. What Dr. Fauci couldn’t figure out Donald Trump understood in two seconds.

Sometime in February in 2020, there was a discussion about the importance of mask wearing. You can find the video clips of Dr. Fauci saying that mask are not needed. Of course when Donald Trump repeated what his medical expert said and when it was later determined that masks were needed, it was all Donald Trump‘s fault. You can also find a video tape of when Dr. Fauci change his position. It should be noted now that Dr. Fauci has changed his position again on masks. He says that everybody should be double masked. As if one mask wasn’t difficult enough to breathe through.

In March 2020 news reporters and anchors of several networks asked Dr. Fauci about the public safety of going to restaurants, bars, public places, sporting events and so forth. Dr. Fauci said it was perfectly OK. Stating that much of these places were outdoors and the virus did not travel well in outdoor environments. Of course Donald Trump said the same thing following the lead of his medical expert on the subject. Nancy Pelosi even went to Chinatown to declare that everything was safe. I did find it interesting that she chose to go Chinatown. Of course Trump then got blamed for it all when Dr. Fauci once again changed his opinion again about social distancing. Of course a new South Korean study came out shortly afterwards that showed that Covid could be passed around in five minutes and at distance of up to 20 feet and not the accepted distance of 6 feet. Oh my Dr. Fauci ‘s going to be wrong again.

Dr. Fauci said that there was no way that we could have a vaccine in a year and President Trump stated. Trump proved him wrong and actually created a system where the vaccine was produced on time and under budget, and streamlined all of the government processes for testing, approving and distribution of the vaccine. Imagine that Donald Trump with no scientific and medical expertise or knowledge was able to create such a system. A system that Dr. Fauci believed could only be accomplished in 2 to 4 years.

Governor’s of states like New York said there is no way they would ever implement the administration of a vaccine that was produced so fast. Now these governors can’t get the vaccine fast enough. And as expected Biden is now taking credit for distributing it. President Biden and Kamala Harris said that the drug would be dangerous and it would never take anything approved by the Trump Administration. Interestingly enough Biden took credit for the not only the distribution of the vaccine, but the creation of the vaccine, itself.

If it wasn’t for the fact that all this was on tape it might go unnoticed by most, but it certainly didn’t go unnoticed by me. There’s something dishonorable about a person who continuously flip-flops. It is also dishonest when he doesn’t own his comments and mistakes. Dr. Fauci simply let President Trump bear the brunt of the ridicule when he followed his lead.

I know it is not easy being the designated expert on a subject. Especially a subject that is as confusing as virology and pandemics. I understand that Dr. Fauci has to make educated guesses. That doesn’t bother me, and it doesn’t bother me that he often times wrong. What bothers me is that he allowed President Trump to take the full blame for his failures and mistakes.

I know that Dr. Fauci is a man of small stature, but he is even smaller in my eyes for not excepting part of the responsibility for the advice he was giving to the President of the United States.

So here we have the top paid person in the US government who got it wrong on all the major issues related to Covid. Even worse was the fact that he allowed the media to make statements that President Trump caused the death of 300,000 Americans.

People seem to fail to recognize that President Trump did not make the virus did not release the virus that all came from China. There was nothing that President Trump could do to stem the tide. He ordered through emergency decrees, that ventilator systems be produced. He also banned ravel from and to many affected countries. Following expert advice he closed down the economy, to prevent the medical infrastructure from being overwhelmed.

Covid-19 is virus, and it’s like telling people that the government is going to create a system to stop the flu, well that’s just not gonna happen. They’ve been trying to stop the flu for 60 years and are no closer to stopping it than they were when they started the project.

Heck even I can go on record and state that everybody on the planet is going to catch Covid and there’s nothing that’s gonna stop it. It’s a virus that’s what viruses do.

And here’s a thing that should be obvious to you, the Press knows all this, and they don’t care. This is not about the truth, this is about ideology. Their ideology trumps the truth in this case. They hated president Trump so much that they could not even report the news fairly.

In fact when it came to Covid-19, masking the truth was the only mask that worked.

Dr. Fauci recently faced off against Senator Rand Paul in a Senate hearing on the coronavirus.  Paul repeatedly questioned Fauci in September on how preexisting cross reactive immunity could potentially stop the spread of COVID-19, citing data from Asia. Fauci told Paul that there was no evidence making that case.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has changed his position on school re-openings.

On ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci recently stated: “The default position should be to try as best as possible within reason to keep the children in school or to get them back to school. … If you look at the data, the spread among children and from children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let’s try to get the kids back, but let’s try to mitigate the things that maintain and just push the kind of community spread that we’re trying to avoid.”

But Dr. Fauci hasn’t always sided with the data or supported proponents of re-opening.

Investigative reporter Jordan Schachtel produced a detailed timeline on all of the positions Dr. Fauci has taken on schools, noting that Fauci’s latest remarks have finally “caught up with the overwhelming data supporting open schools.”

April 13, 2020: Fauci slams Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who announced at the time that he wanted to get schools open as soon as possible. Fauci claimed that opening the schools will get children infected with the coronavirus. “If you have a situation where you don’t have a real good control over an outbreak and you allow children together, they will likely get infected,” Fauci proclaimed.

May 12, 2020: Without evidence, Fauci claims COVID-19 is dangerous to children, citing “Kawasaki syndrome” as a potential outcome in schoolchildren.

June 30, 2020: Testifying on Capitol Hill, Fauci says school reopenings depend on the “dynamics of the outbreak.”

July 15, 2020: The NIAID chief supports looking at schools on a case by case basis.

July 24, 2020: Fauci continues to advance his vague ideas about school reopenings, but again makes clear that he opposes having schools open in areas where the coronavirus is spreading.

August 4, 2020: Dr. Fauci calls for the continuing closure of schools in areas with high transmission, and a hybrid learning system in areas with moderate transmission, in elaborating on a scaled approach that allows for schools to remain open based on unspecified area transmission numbers.

August 4, 2020: ABC reports that Fauci is still concerned that schools could be vectors for transmission of COVID-19.

August 13, 2020: Fauci agrees that the future entails “many months” of virtual learning, in supporting keeping schools physically closed.

September 3, 2020: Schools can only open back up once the virus is “under control,” Fauci tells CNN.

September 20, 2020: Fauci declares that “some” schools may be able to open safely, but that places with high COVID-19 transmission levels may want to pause before they start sending the kids back to school for a variety of reasons.”

November 29, 2020: Fauci discovers the almost year-old data showing that schools are not vectors for COVID-19 transmission. He says in an ABC interview, “But as I said in the past … the default position should be to try as best as possible within reason to keep the children in school or to get them back to school.”

I have shared much research and data from experts over the past several months on best practices to re-open schools in ways that minimize health and safety risks, that schools aren’t super-spreaders, and that there is very little evidence that school closures have any measurable public health benefit against the spread of COVID. We can get our students safely back into the classroom.

The flashpoint for Fauci’s missteps has been his feud with Sen. Rand Paul, who said that Fauci owes an apology to “every single parent and school-age child in America” for resisting calls for students to go back to school and then reversing that position on Sunday.

“Close the bars and keep the schools open,” Fauci said during an appearance on ABC’s This Week, adding that there is “obviously” not a “one size fits all” approach to schooling.

His comments come after months of President Trump and lawmakers demanding that schools must open and warning that the effects from lockdowns could be devastating. Studies from the U.S. and abroad have already shown that keeping children from schools has had serious consequences, with suicides among youths rising in Wisconsin, children forgetting basic life skills in the United Kingdom, and an overall increase of mental health-related emergency department visits for youths across the U.S.

In November, however, Paul took a victory lap when the New York Times published research backing up his claims and showed that some adults, and even more children, carried an antibody that can prevent coronavirus infection, including COVID-19.

But these are just the most recent examples of Fauci backtracking or being proven wrong.

On March 8, he described lockdown measures in China as “draconian” and stated that such restrictions wouldn’t be “feasible” in the U.S., more than a month after the World Health Organization had declared a global health emergency on Jan. 30.

Days later on March 15, he changed positions and said he was open to a national 14-day shutdown to help stop the spread. In April, when pressed in a CNN interview on why social distancing and lockdowns weren’t implemented sooner, he sparked confusion when he said more lives “obviously” could have been saved if there hadn’t been “pushback” to lockdowns at the start of the pandemic. The very next day, he backtracked, saying that he used “the wrong choice of words.”

In September, Fauci testified that he did not “regret” saying that the only way to stop the “explosion of infection” was by “shutting down.”

Perhaps Fauci’s most notable flip-flop has been on the efficacy of masks, saying in March that there was “no reason” to wear a mask. By April, he joined the chorus of doctors and health agencies encouraging the use of face masks.

Fauci also previously downplayed the virus itself, something Trump was harshly criticized for, saying in February that the public should not be “frightened.” By March, he was singing a different tune, warning people that they needed to do their part to stop the spread and take the virus seriously.

He also downplayed asymptomatic transmission on Jan. 28, saying what “people need to realize” is that in “all the history” of respiratory-borne viruses, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks. By August, Fauci did a complete 180, saying asymptomatic cases were a driving factor in the community spread of COVID-19 despite a WHO admission that more evidence was needed to make this determination. In late August, researchers from Southern Medical University in Guangzhou concluded that “asymptomatic cases were least likely to infect their close contacts.”

Fauci warned in a May hearing while the school closure debate was ongoing that Kawasaki disease, which causes inflammation in blood vessels in children, could be related to COVID-19. However, diagnoses of Kawasaki disease did not increase in 2020 compared to data from 2018 and 2019, according to research released in November.

Paul again directed his ire toward Fauci’s COVID-19 advice last month, accusing him of glossing “over the science.”

“He believes that submission and lockdowns are fine,” the senator said. “He’s not too worried about individual liberties, but he also tends to gloss over the science, because we’ve had this debate back and forth about immunity.”

Fauci, however, has remained steadfast and vocal with the media that the science must be followed.

He gives frequent updates that people must socially distance, follow local health orders, and brace for a holiday season rife with restrictions. Fauci referred to Trump’s Rose Garden ceremony for Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court appointment as a “superspreader event” and called Trump’s campaign rallies “troublesome,” but he has yet to answer repeated Washington Examiner inquires regarding social distancing orders amid months of public protests and riots.


I hope this article has shown the reader that Dr. Fauci is not a person to be trusted. The only comment he has made that has an veracity was made in early March when he stated that fabric masks helped little with preventing the spread of the covid virus. President Trump went into his presidency with the goal to drain the DC swamp, unfortunately this was the one thing he failed to do, and Dr. Fauci managed to slither his way to safety.
