Dr. Anthony Fauci is the kind of guy you either love or hate. Donald Trump deescalated him down the ladder of importance when he proved to be wishy-washy. As one of the world’s ‘supposed’ leading immunologist who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, Fauci’s past claimed accomplishments weren’t proving themselves.
Now that the doc is regaining his unjustifiable status with hernia-brained Biden preparing to nap in the Oval Office, Fauci wants the feds to start clamping down hard on COVID-19 decisions. Those pain-in-the-butt ill-advised sovereign states need to step aside and let the real government start calling all the shots.
Fauci went as far as to tell the BBC that “it’s that pesky ol’ Tenth Amendment that has proven a real detriment to disease-fighting.” Just for giggles, here is what that pesky ol’ Tenth Amendment gives we the people the right to do.
Per Wikipedia, “The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, a part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. It expresses the principle of federalism, also known as states’ rights by stating that the federal government has only those powers delegated to it by the Constitution and that all other powers not forbidden to the states by the Constitution are reserved to each state or its people.”
As reported by CNN, Fauci said, “The states are very often given a considerable amount of leeway in doing things the way they want to do it, as opposed to in response to federal mandates which are, relatively, rarely given. … [But the coronavirus] doesn’t know the difference between the border of New York and New Jersey, or Florida and Georgia.”
While no one can say this is not a true statement, it stops well short of many other facts. Who recalls when this same Dr. Fauci wasn’t certain whether or not to label Antifa and BLM riots as super-spreaders? Even at a hearing before the House, he refused to label them as such. He used the premise of most of the protestors wearing masks.
It was during a July Capitol Hill hearing that Rep. Jim Jordan asked Fauci, “I just want an answer to the question — do the protests increase the spread of the virus?”
To this, Fauci cleverly ducked and dodged by saying, “I can tell you that crowds are known, particularly when you don’t have a mask, to increase the acquisition and transmission, no matter what the crowd is.”
In essence, what he said was to avoid all crowds, but that every crowd is different so he can’t judge one based on the actions of another. This, without a doubt, is how he has maintained his position for all of these years. The man is fluent in politics.
Now, hang on. Just one month prior to spitting this garbage from his mouth, he was asked if he would consider attending a Trump rally. His reply? “People who attend are asking for trouble. Now is even more so a worse time to do that.”
So now Fauci figures the only way to get control of this virus would be by completely stripping states of their rights and allowing the feds to seize control of the nation, lock, stock, and barrel. Screw the Tenth Amendment. Some might call this martial law.
Under the Biden administration, should Fauci get his way, you should be asking yourself the following. How long will all of this take and when will states regain their rights? Or will they? Not to imply that this may be part of a master plan coming to fruition, but it certainly gives one pause to think.
