While weathering national controversies, Dr. Fauci praises Vermont’s COVID policies

The scandal-ridden Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), says that Vermont’s high compliance with COVID-19 mandates make the state an example for the nation to follow.

“This virus is a formidable foe,” Fauci said Tuesday. “You give it an opportunity to re-emerge its ugly head, whether you are in the beautiful rural area of Vermont or the middle of Manhattan or the Bronx, that virus is going to take advantage of that,” Fauci said. “So please, you’ve done so well, don’t let your guard down.”

FAUCI FOR VT: Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has praised Vermont for its COVID-19 mitigation efforts. He’s also involved in a “gain-of-function” COVID-19 research scandal.

Vermont has been one of the most vaccinated states in the nation against COVID-19, yet it also has high case counts and deaths among the vaccinated.

Republican Gov. Phil Scott recently highlighted that 70 percent of Vermont schools are doing remote learning about three to four days per week. Some studies show that remote learning has been detrimental for students who reportedly have a lack of motivation when learning online.

Fauci downplayed any notion that Vermont is one of the least densely populated states in the nation, and that this affects case counts.

“It isn’t a question of density or not, it’s a question of what you did or did not do correctly,” Fauci said.

Among a handful of scandals that the doctor is weathering, some have noted Fauci’s alleged role in financing “gain-of-function research” at a lab in Wuhan, China, involving versions of the coronavirus.

“Dr. Fauci, I don’t expect you today to admit that you approved of NIH funding for a gain of function research in Wuhan, but your repeated denials have worn thin,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told Fauci during a recent hearing.

According to a report by the Virology Blog, the phrase gain of function research means it “gives an organism a new property or enhances an existing one. The organism can be a virus, bacterium, fungus, rodent, bird, fish, or anything that can be experimentally manipulated.”

Another scandal involving Fauci involved animal studies including using dogs.

“Fauci, 80, is under fire amid reports that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases allegedly used thousands of taxpayers’ dollars to fund experimental testing on dogs,” The Sun reported two weeks ago.

TownHall.com’s story “Six Bombshell Revelations from Fauci’s Emails” includes that Fauci dismissed early warnings that the virus could be man-made and that he often told people that the masks don’t work and that people shouldn’t wear them before telling the public differently.

According to a report by The Western Journal, there are currently efforts among Republicans in Washington to oust Fauci from his job.

“A tangible sign of Republicans’ discontent with the Biden administration’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic has emerged with a GOP-led effort to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci,” it states.

The bill titled “Fauci’s Incompetence Requires Early Dismissal” or “FIRED” is said to be a formal public statement, further action would be needed to begin the firing of Fauci.

While Vermont has been one of the most locked-down states and it’s seen its economy turn to massive federal dollars to maintain stability, over in Florida where lockdown policies were largely limited the state is seeing nearly half of all new economic growth in the nation during September in terms of new job growth.

On social media, some Vermonters continue to call for stronger COVID-19 policies, even after such restrictions were cited as a significant reason for voter backlash against Democrats in multiple state elections last week.

  1. Truthfully who gives a rat’s butt what the little weasel Fauci thinks… He’s nothing but a lying rat. has been since day one.

  2. Those “gain-of-function” accusations no longer hold water. Why? Because the NIH craftily removed that terminology from their website:

    Original version of NIH GOF web page: https://web.archive.org/web/20210825002512/https://www.nih.gov/news-events/gain-function-research-involving-potential-pandemic-pathogens

    Revised version of web page: https://www.nih.gov/news-events/research-involving-potential-pandemic-pathogens

    See? Just call it something else and the problem goes away. Now please stop pestering Dr. Fauci!

  3. This news should be reassuring to all Vermonters. The fearful can feel comforted. The financier and chief cheerleader of SARS-CoV-2 thinks Scott and the State of Vermont are obeying orders.

    The rest of us can remain confident in our view of the facts.

  4. proof positive VT is on the WRONG track. Fauci has been a disaster apparently from before the virus was even released, being responsible in part to that happening. Whatever the clown says do the opposite.

  5. It was Fauci’s funding of GOF research for the Chinese military at Wuhan and his collaboration with Chinese scientists in GOF research, and then his complete and utterly unscientific dismissal of early treatment for Covid-19, that got us here in the first place.

    My guess is that to get out of this mess we should do the exact opposite of whatever Dr. Fauci says. He needs to go, and we need our supposed leaders to stop listening to the man who funded GOF research on coronaviruses, lied about it, and then is pretending to be the hero leading us out of the mess he helped create.

    It was in his power long ago to change the trajectory of Covid-19. He did nothing. Tens of thousands have died because of his negligence.

    Dr. Fauci is the problem, not the solution.

    • Fauci thinks he is a Saint- a King- Bigger than a movie star and more important than President.
      Everything he has said has been a lie. a BOLD FACE LIE. I never trusted the weasel from day one. he’s sneaky.
