Fauci is a deep-state politician. He may have qualified as a doctor, but he is nothing more than a wolf in sheeps clothing in support of progressive actions against American freedom. 2016 avg. daily deaths: 7518, 2017 - 7708, remainder not available from CDC yet. We're allowing the utter destruction of the middle class for generations to come over 13,000 deaths? Are you fvking kidding me? That's less than two days of average deaths. The click-bait prog headlines screaming a quarter million American's will die to spread irrational fear are nothing but support of those readily stripping our rights away. This includes not only progs like Kelly, but RINOs like Parson's as well. Problem is, where are all the straight-back square shoulder leaders willing to take a stand and call this BS for what it is? Nothing but fear-mongering and control of the sheeple willing to bleat to the hotlines to turn in their common sense neighbors for not giving a crap about this artificial lockdown. The fascists of the neo-Nazi progs are upon us and it ain't on the right, and never was in any serious fashion.

Fauci won’t be happy until the stats tell him to be happy... and according to him that’ll be about a year from now so he won’t commit to anything and it’s making him look bad. He won’t take anything into consideration unless there’s absolutely 100% proof, he’s not built to see what’s going good right this minute. He’s kind of an alarmist in a sense.

Anonymous said...

Fauci won't knuckle under to Trump's schoolyard bullying, so it won't be long till Incompetence-In-Chief gets rid of him.

But the bright side of that is, having been fired by Trump will be a very favorable line on anyone's resume in a year or two.

By the way, this so-called "administration" is making the tinfoil hat Brigade's mythical term "Deep State" synonymous with "Competent"!

1108 Fauci is a deep state, gates, soros tool...he'll get his 6 figure book deal after all this. 35 years in government does not make anyone an expert, especially since he failed so miserably here.

The guy wants to keep us locked up until there is not a single positive case (insanity, he wants the whole usa under lock down - even bumfuck nowhere usa - what fucking sense is that)and our economy flattened so his benefactors can roll out their fake vaccine in a year or longer and make a mountain of cash selling an unnecessary and useless product.

Take a look at Sweden that has done practically nothing and its cases are no worse.

Keep on supporting big pharma

All of Fauci's critics are wrong. This guy is trying to stop people from dying. You can deny some things but the doctors Trump is listing to are correct and even Trump has bent to their advice because it is real and it works. By the way...stay at least 10" away from me as you are too stupid to realize six feet isn't that much space. Go lick the slide on the playground.

Dr Fauci is deep state?

Holy shit the tin-foil hat is cutting off circulation to your brain.

127 if it's not self evident...those are just some of world deaths since 1-1-2020 in the 1000s categorized by some of the causes of death we all face.

You see lots of people are dying each and every day...very few by the wuhan flu.

No reason to shit your pants though, it's gonna be OK. You are gonna have to return to work, no more gibs, and yes, rent is due again.

Good to know that 85K deaths (not 59K) from Covid-19 since January 1st is considered to be very few...

You do realize it's still spreading and accelerating right? 85K dead is even after severe mitigation methods to reduce spread, right? Nationally or globally, we are nowhere near gaining herd immunity, right? That there is no vaccine, right? There is no approved effective treatment, right? Of course you don't and you won't accept scientific facts when shoved in your face. You won't even use the correct medical name of the virus.

Deniers like you are sick people. Tens of thousands of deaths. MEH. It's just old and sick people, so who cares. Death panels are overdue.

Do us a favor and join the group in your list between malaria and road accidents. Or go back to work yourself now and accomplish the same result. Either method is fine, just do it.

85 thousand out of nearly 8 billion, but anywho look at the numbers there are a lot of other diseases killing a lot more people.

It's not accerlating, is petering out and there are now known effective treatments.

The US will not even see 50K deaths out of 350 million (the flu killed 80K in the us in 2017), so yeah there are more pressing problems and in no way does this justify keeping the economy held hostage.

Let those at risk self isolate, that's what sweden has done and there numbers are no worse per capita.

The only real effect this is going to have is that your wages are going to take a nose dive.

So change your diaper and get out of your apartment, start looking for a new job because your old one is gone and no more gibs and rent is gonna be due soon.

Yeah, unfortunately 10's of thousands of deaths are a statistic period. No, 88,000 deaths is not a big deal in a worldwide population of 7,800,000,000. That's simply everyday life. Fauci wants to stop our world-driving economy until he halts every single CoVid death, that is absolutely insane. Deepstate, career bureaucrat after power, call it what you want, he and Brix should have been gone as soon as they started peddling the 260k AMERICAN deaths. Shit, the world-wide death count isn't likely to hit that, fake stay at home martial law bullshit effectiveness or not. Oh, here's the link to the death rates I mentioned above, not that you care you prog nut-jobs:

@6:23, Trump has been fear mongering about immigrants since 2016, so by your logic he's worthless too, right? I mean you offer the phrase "talking points on repeat", ever listed to Trump speak?

Thanks for demonstrating that Bonespurs is not only a fool and coward, but as you have PROVEN, he's worthless too!
