Many happy returns to Dr. Anthony Fauci, and I don’t mean his 82nd birthday which is coming up on Christmas Eve.
I’m hoping for many happy returns of what he had to endure Wednesday — seven hours under oath, being deposed in a civil lawsuit.
The attorneys general of Louisiana and Missouri contend that the mad scientist was deeply involved in a “vast conspiracy enterprise” between the Biden administration and social media (but I repeat myself) to censor anyone and everyone who objected to the Cult of COVID.
You may not have heard anything about this deposition, and not just because it occurred on Thanksgiving Eve. More significantly, state-run media gave it a good leaving-alone because… Democrats.
The deposition has been sealed, so the comrades can claim that they have no way of confirming what went down — as if that ever stops them whenever they’re making up bleep about Trump, from the Russian collusion hoax (2016) to nuclear secrets at Mar-a-Lago (2022).
Thank goodness once again that Elon Musk now owns Twitter, because most everyone who attended the deposition tweeted about the laff-riot that went down.
The two Republican attorneys general who filed the original suit in federal court are Eric Schmitt of Missouri, now the US senator-elect, and Jeff Landry of Louisiana.
Here’s what Landry had to say after the deposition was over:
“Wow! It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci. The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon ‘the science.’ Only to discover that he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his COVID response!”
Of course he can’t. The real pandemic, at least in the District of Columbia, is amnesia — Democrat amnesia, under oath. The higher up you go in the federal hackerama, the more likely it is that, to the best of your recollection, you cannot recall. Anything.
Here are a couple of AG Schmitt’s tweeted takeaways:
“Fauci knew the Lab (leak) theory had merit but it’d come back to him & (he) sought to immediately discredit it.”
So much for the science. The only real science during the Panic of 2020–21 was political science, to get rid of Trump.
Schmitt says Fauci also reiterated what he made clear by his crackpot diktats: “The rest of us ‘don’t have the ability’ to determine what’s best for ourselves.”
Schmitt continued: “In Feb. ’20 he emailed a friend advising her masks were ineffective. Confirmed again Mar. 31. On Apr. 3 he’s adamant masks should be worn even though he couldn’t cite a single study to prove it. Mandates followed. Lives ruined. COVID tyranny is born.”
Another lawyer at the proceeding tweeted that when Fauci was pressed on why he didn’t couldn’t cite any studies about masks that he’d followed, he answered that he was “too busy saving lives to be bothered with trivialities.”
Did Fauci believe any of the pernicious nonsense that he was peddling, that ended up destroying not only the economy, as AG Landry pointed out, but also unleashed multiple other catastrophes across the entire society, which will take generations to recover from?
It seems doubtful. But the larger point is, Fauci didn’t care. It was about self-aggrandizement, and getting rid of Trump, which in the case of such a megalomaniacal Democrat paper-shuffler I suppose amounted to the same thing. The end justified the means.
According to the tweets, there were a couple of humorous moments during the octogenarian’s onerous ordeal. On the table between him and “The Science,” Landry placed a copy of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s scathing best-selling expose, “The Real Anthony Fauci.”
Bobby Jr. is a Democrat, of course, so I guess that you could say the deposition was “bipartisan.” At least as bipartisan as, say, the Jan. 6 commission.
Then there was the court reporter, the stenographer. She sneezed. Dr. Fauci demanded that she immediately put on a mask.
As one of the other plaintiffs, a woman from Louisiana named Jill Hines, noted on Facebook:
“He was there to talk about the ‘life-saving intervention’ that people were supposedly spreading misinformation about but here he is, afraid of a court reporter sitting several feet away from him…. He stated, ‘The last thing in the world I want to do is get COVID.’”
But wait, didn’t Fauci just the previous day at the White House demand that everyone get boosted again… and again?. Hasn’t he himself been double-vaxxed and double-boosted, and yet he’s twice come down with the Wuhan flu himself?
As AG Schmitt tweeted in his description of the mask moment: “This is the mentality in Nov 2022 of the guy who locked our country down & ruined countless lives and livelihoods.”
But not his own. His net worth has more than doubled — to $12 million — since the Red Chinese imported the Panic to our shores. Doing well by doing good indeed.
Oddly, Fauci himself hasn’t tweeted out a word about any of this. State-run media is not full of self-serving accounts from “a person familiar with the matter who is not authorized to speak on the record.”
Recall how many times Fauci, a Democrat operative with a stethoscope, was welcomed onto Democrat chat shows by Democrat operatives with press passes (George Stephanopoulos, Jake Tapper, F. Chuck Todd, etc.).
Of course this was only the first of what we can all hope will be a series of appearances, under oath, of the 67-inch-high tin-pot tyrant who first buried his snout in the public trough when Lyndon Johnson was president.
A few final fun Fauci facts:
Does he have a Massachusetts connection? (Of course — Holy Cross, Class of ’62. What a cross for the Crusaders to bear.)
What’s his most recent salary? ($480,654 a year.)
What will his pension be as he retires? ($375,211 a year.)
It’s a shame the Republicans didn’t take over the Senate, because Sen. Rand Paul won’t be the chairman of a committee that can subpoena that nasty, rotten little old man.
But perhaps there is some way Paul could be appointed “of counsel” to the first GOP-controlled House committee to have a go at Fauci, under oath? And maybe bring in Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as well, you know, to make it “bipartisan.”
Not that state-run media will cover any of Fauci’s follies because… Democrats. I can already hear the fellow-travelers in the amen chorus repeating as one:
Nothing to see here folks, move along.
