Fed Up With Fauci

Polls are showing the confidence of overall likely voters has significantly declined in Dr. Fauci over the past 12 months. 

Starting strong, he is now weak in the minds of most.

Why? Many believed he and "science" could lead us out of the peril of the virus.

And there are nagging questions like, did the COVID-19 virus really come from wild animals, or did it originate in the Wuhan Lab?  Did American taxpayers fund China's development of COVID 19? Why is Fauci now vacillating on this and so many other vital questions?

And what about masks and lockdowns and isolations and the hypocrisy of those who led the COVID  sojourn?  

Did American taxpayers fund the creation of COVID-19? Was it developed for good? Or for evil?

And is the "science" we have been religiously told to follow really science, or an opportunity to seize more power as VP Harris suggested last week.

Some thoughts on the year of the virus.

Be informed, not misled.

No confidence.

Over a year into the pandemic, after we were told we would only need about two weeks to "stop the spread, bend the curve"---you remember that--- the American people are understandably less than thrilled with Dr. Fauci.

Not that Fauci is fully responsible, but he represents the "science" we were told to follow.

Now American's frustration is directed, at least in part, on the science that was supposed to provide answers and the man who represents the "science."

Several polls are showing confidence in Fauci is in decline. Sharp decline. 

One poll from Trafalgar Group found that almost double the amount of overall likely voters said their confidence in Dr. Fauci had decreased in the past year.

A plurality of respondents, at 30.1% said their confidence had "decreased significantly."

Only 9% said their confidence in Fauci had increased.

It's interesting that these polls sampled at a higher number of women and Democrats who have more confidence in Fauci than men and Republicans who have less confidence. Yet overall the polls still show people have lost confidence in Fauci.

Fauci's obsession with the limelight started with the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s as he tried desperately to become the scientist who saved humanity with a cure for AIDS. That didn't work out for him.

COVID 19 is apparently not working as planned either.

I do believe he has enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame---"in the limelight," as they say.

With Facui's diminishing influence, questions remain.

COVID; natural origin or lab origin?

It's important to a lot of Americans where this virus came from. Did China create it, and if so for what purpose? Or did it somehow transfer from animals---like a bat, to people?

In May 2020, Fauci told National Geographic, "If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what's out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated."

He also dismissed the theory that the virus could've been discovered in the wild, brought back to the lab, and then accidentally leaked.

Anyone asking about the "lab leaked" theory back then was quickly denounced. The mainstream media  repeatedly called it a "conspiracy theory"---just like anyone who believes there could have been "irregularities" in the 2020 election.

The World Health Organization assured the world the "leaked from the lab" notion could not have happened. 

However this weekend Katie Sanders with PolitiFacts asked Dr. Fauci if he is still confident that the virus developed naturally. He said, "No I'm not convinced about that."

There's been no new science reported in regard to origins since Fauci denied the "lab" theory last May.

The United Nations inspectors who went to the Wuhan Lab to "get to the bottom of all this" a few months ago came away saying, "nope, there's no way the Chinese lab is to blame."

Did American taxpayers fund the research on COVID at the Wuhan Lab? 

Senator Rand Paul says we absolutely did. Fauci says no, you didn't.

In a recent hearing, Sen. Paul's line of questioning centered around grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where Fauci is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to a group called EcoHealth Alliance. Under the leadership of Fauci, the NIH sent money to EcoHealth which was funneled to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for research on bat-based coronaviruses.

The funding has to do with a very controversial kind of experimentation, involving the engineering of pathogens called "Gain-of-Function" research. Scientists juice up the virus, making it more lethal so they can better prepare for a "pandemic."

Not everyone believes that China's motives were pure regarding this research.

The NIH funding of GOF research was outlawed from 2014 to 2017, before being reinstated under Fauci's watch.

The Daily Caller has found that the NIH grants that ended up in Wuhan were not subjected to the appropriate oversight and approval process. There's more you can read the links.

It's clear that U.S. money has been flowing to the Wuhan lab. I believe, based on my personal research, we probably did fund the controversial research. And it's looking more and more that the virus did come from the lab.

Was it an accident? Or was it intentionally leaked into the public? I don't know. But it's concerning.

One thing is pretty certain, Dr. Fauci has seized the moment of fame, and now his limelight is flickering.

The virus 'presents an opportunity."

Dr. Fauci is not the only one who sees the value of the virus.

Vice President Kamala Harris told the Asian Pacific Heritage Month Unity Summit last week, "As we emerge from this pandemic, I believe that we are at the start of a new era. I believe that we have a unique opportunity now to shape our nation's future. To transform how we live, how we work, and how we vote."

Recently, actress Jane Fonda echoed Harris's remarks, calling the coronavirus "God's gift to the Left," apparently not remembering or caring that about 600,000 people have died with the virus.

No wonder anxiety and depression and fear and violence are spiking in our country.

And discouragement.

At this time we are without leadership, and everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes---driven by their own passions of fame, power, and greed. And rebellion toward God.


While epidemiologists and virologists are looking for ways to kill the virus, studies show the virus, or more specifically, the effects of the virus are taking a toll on the people.

The most prevalent effect of the virus in almost all studies is anxiety, depression, discouragement, and loneliness.

"God is not discouraged."

Dr. Michael Brown published an article yesterday with the title: "God is not Discouraged." 

He said:

"The Scriptures often speak of God being grieved or angry. But they never speak of Him being discouraged. That's because discouragement is not an 'emotion' that exists within the Godhead. How could it? Discouragement would imply despair. Or hopelessness. Or defeat. And all of these emotions ---to speak of the Creator in human terms---are totally foreign to Him. Ultimately, in Jesus, they should be foreign to us as well."

It's natural for us as human beings---even human beings who have a close personal relationship with the Lord, to pass through seasons of discouragement, but in God, there is no discouragement. No sense of hopelessness. No fear of a dark future. No despair that His purposes will not come to pass.

As Scriptures declare, He knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10) and He sees tomorrow more clearly than we see yesterday. And he knows that His purposes will prevail and that, in the end, the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdom of God and His Messiah (Rev. 11:15). Why then should He be discouraged?

So why should we?
