BOH Creates another Public Relations Fiasco
by Gerald Braude
When the Washington Board of Health (BOH) voted unanimously eleven months ago to not add COVID-19 shots to daycare and school entry requirements, BOH member Elisabeth Crawford said, “The perception of the public is just not there, and I think this highlights the problem we have in the trust of public health. I’m looking forward to how we can build the trust of public health in our state.”
On page fifteen of the packet for their March 8, 2023 meeting, the BOH made another goof toward building public trust by putting forth a letter of appreciation to Dr. Anthony Fauci for his many years of “competent” service:
If the BOH were seriously interested in building their image, common sense would have told them that, considering the following list of Fauci’s dirty dozen deeds, writing such a letter was a bad idea.
Number One: Fauci’s Denial of the Lab Leak Theory
The BOH letter thanks Fauci for his grace, composure, and leadership in the face of partisan politics and misinformation campaigns. But Fauci’s own brand of misinformation of repeatedly rejecting the Wuhan lab leak theory has been coming to light in the midst of growing evidence, most recently unearthed by the Energy Department, that COVID-19 did stem from that lab leak.
According to documents obtained by Bret Baier of Fox News, two prominent virologists in January 2020 told Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins, head of the National Institutes of Health that the virus may have been manipulated and originated in the lab. The two virologists then changed their tune in public comments days after meeting with the NIH officials. The virologists were later awarded nearly $9 million from Fauci’s agency.
Washington Republican Representative Cathy Rodgers, along with Morgan Griffith (R-Virginia), and Brett Guthrie (R-Kentucky), have released the following statement regarding the Energy Department’s report and restoring trust in public health:
“This report affirms our belief that the substantial circumstantial evidence favors Covid-19 emerging from a research-related incident. These revelations also further strengthen the need to uncover why high-ranking government officials, with help from Big Tech and the media, sought early on to silence any debate into a plausible theory of a lab incident while the Chinese Communist Party stonewalled investigations by the global scientific community. The American people deserve answers if we are to restore trust in our public health agencies and be better prepared for possible future pandemics. Our committee, in coordination with others in the House Republican Conference, will continue to push for the truth.”
Number Two: VAERS Deaths Are from Cancer, not the COVID-19 Shots
Does the BOH know that Fauci’s most blatant lie was under oath during a January 11, 2022 United States Senate hearing as he fielded questions from Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville? When Tuberville asked him how many had died after taking the COVID-19 shot, Fauci took off his mask and said he didn’t have a number. He then said, “I think part of the confusion is that when you do a reporting, if you get vaccinated, and you walk out and get hit by a car (laughs) that is considered a death. I mean, that the thing that gets confusing that everything that happens after the vaccination even if you die of something completely obviously unrelated, it’s considered a death, so if I had metastatic cancer, got vaccinated, and died two weeks later, that’s a death that gets—“ Tuberville then cut him off and said, “I understand that.”
Perhaps the BOH could pour over the 213 Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System (VAERS) reports of deaths after the COVID-19 shots here in Washington and point out to the public which one of those deaths came from cancer, or even car accidents, and not from the COVID-19 shots.
Number Three: National Institute’s of Health (NIH) Royalty Payments
A 2005 Associated Press (AP) scoop showed large numbers of agency scientists — at the NIH’s explicit instruction — were routinely failing to disclose royalty payments, either to taxpayers or to participants in taxpayer-funded clinical trials who were obligingly testing out the NIH’s royalty-generating experimental treatments.
As AP pointed out, “Such research helps bring the treatment closer to possible commercial use, which could in turn bring the researchers and NIH higher royalties.” Among the scientists scolded by AP for “testing products for which they secretly receive[d] royalties” was NIAID’s Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Even without royalties (which are classified as “federal compensation” rather than “outside income”), the long-time National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director — who describes himself as a humble “government worker” with a “government salary” — is the nation’s highest paid federal employee.
During the 2005 brouhaha, professing to be “extremely sensitive about the possibility of an appearance of a conflict of interest,” Fauci told the public he was donating his payments to charity.
A February 26, 2023 Full Measure podcast revealed that between 1997 and 2004, Fauci and his deputy, Clifford Lane, drew in $45,000 in royalty payments. Although Fauci said that he would donate his share of the money to charity, Lane said that he would not.
In the same podcast, the nonprofit organization Open the Books, revealed that the NIH collected $63 million in royalty payments for 2021. With the licensing of the Pfizer COVID-19 shot Comirnaty in 2022, the NIH collected $127 million for that year. The royalty payments came from the NIH’s help with developing the technology for the shot. The issue has been that taxpayers see no reimbursement from these royalties.
Number Four: Mask Wearing
Fauci explained his first recommendation not to wear masks during a March 2020 “60 Minutes” interview, saying using a mask in the community was unnecessary. “The masks are important for someone who is infected to prevent them from infecting someone else,” he said. “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And often, there are unintended consequences. People keep fiddling with the mask and people keep touching their face.”
But just three months later in an interview in The Street, Fauci justified changing his advice by saying that he recommended not wearing masks in the beginning in order to avoid mass panic that might lead to a shortage of masks for health care workers.
Number Five: Gate of Heaven
In his book The Real Anthony Fauci, Robert Kennedy Jr. exposes the following concerning Fauci’s experimenting on foster children:
In 2004, investigative journalist Liam Scheff chronicled Dr. Fauci’s secretive experiments on hundreds of HIV-positive foster children at Incarnation Children’s Center (ICC) in New York City and numerous sister facilities in New York and six other states between 1988 and 2002 Those experiments were the core of Dr. Fauci’s career-defining effort to develop a second generation of profitable AIDS drugs as an encore to AZT. Scheff described how Dr. Fauci’s NIAID and his Big Pharma partners turned Black and Hispanic foster kids into lab rats, subjecting them to torture and abuse in a grim parade of unsupervised drug and vaccine studies.
BBC’s heartbreaking 2004 documentary, Guinea Pig Kids, chronicles the savage barbarity of Dr. Fauci’s science projects from the perspective of the affected children.
That year, BBC hired investigative reporter Celia Farber to conduct field research for the film, which exposes the dark underside of Big Pharma’s stampede to develop lucrative new AIDS remedies. “I found the mass grave at Gate of Heaven cemetery in Hawthorne, New York,” she told me. “I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a very large pit with AstroTurf thrown over it, which you could actually lift up. Under it one could see dozens of plain wooden coffins, haphazardly stacked. There may have been 100 of them. I learned there was more than one child’s body in each. Around the pit was a semi-circle of several large tombstones on which upward of one thousand children’s names had been engraved.
Number Six: Fauci and AZT
In his book The Real Anthony Fauci, Robert Kennedy Jr. exposes the ills of Fauci’s AZT protocol for HIV:
When Dr. Fauci entered the principal investigator (PI) drug-testing universe, only one pharmaceutical company, Burroughs Wellcome (predecessor to GlaxoSmithKline), had a drug candidate teed up to test as an AIDS remedy—a toxic concoction, azidothymidine, known popularly as “AZT.” US government–financed researchers developed AZT in 1964 as a leukemia chemotherapy. The FDA abandoned the toxic chemotherapy compound after it proved ineffective against cancer and breathtakingly lethal in mice.
In one of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents, Harvey Chernov, the FDA analyst who reviewed the pharmacology data, recommended that AZT should not be approved. Chernov noted many serious toxicities of AZT, especially its effect on the blood: “Although the dose varied, anemia was noted in all species (including man) in which the drug has been tested.” Chernov further noted that AZT is likely to cause cancer: “[AZT] induces a positive response in the cell transformation” assay and is therefore “presumed to be a potential carcinogen.”
After 1987, Dr. Peter Duesberg and his followers argue, the vast majority of “AIDS deaths” were actually caused by AZT—Dr. Fauci’s radical “antiretroviral” chemotherapy purposefully concocted to kill human cells. Duesberg describes the syndrome as “AIDS by AZT.” Ironically, he argued AZT, the highly toxic medication that Dr. Fauci was prescribing to treat AIDS patients, actually does what the virus cannot—that is, it causes AIDS itself. In a rational universe populated by critical thinkers, Duesberg’s suspicion that AZT causes immune collapse should never have seemed revelatory. The FDA, after all, had deemed AZT too toxic to use for even short-term cancer therapy.
In a October 2021 interview with Dr. Joseph Mercola, documentary filmmaker Mikki Willis said that AZT killed his brother:
“And so they decided to put my brother on a medicine that is called AZT that later was proven to do the exact opposite of what it was supposed to do. And that is, it destroyed the T-cells and killed people. And all the while there were medicines, just like today, same game book, medicines that were out of patent, that were very inexpensive, that could have saved my brother and millions of other people, but those were kept from the people.
“And then when my brother finally succumbed to AZT and died, my mother, who was a cancer survivor, was so guilt-ridden because she was one of the ones saying, "No, sweetheart, we have to stay on this. The doctors say 'Your personal doctor and this Anthony Fauci, who is one of the top doctors in the world, they say, it's – I know it's making you sick and I know it feels like it's making things worse, but as they all say, you're going to get better, if you get off of this, you're going to die.’ Well, the medicine killed him. And my mom, as a cancer survivor, was so overcome with the guilt of that, that she died thirty-six days later. And so that was the wake-up call for me to watch, and ultimately what my mom died of was bad cancer treatments.”
Number Seven: Fauci’s Funding of a Dog Experiment
Freedom of Information documents obtained in January 2021 by the White Coat Waste project show that Dr. Fauci approved a $424,000 NIAID grant in 2020 for experiments in which dogs were bitten to death by flies. The insects carried a disease-carrying parasite that can affect humans. The researchers strapped capsules containing infected flies to the bare skin of twenty-eight healthy beagle puppies and kept them in agonizing suffering for 196 days before euthanizing them. NIAID acknowledged it subjected other animals, including mice, Mongolian gerbils, and rhesus monkeys to similar experiments.
Number Eight: Fauci’s Convenient Lapses in Memory
In a November 23, 2022 deposition that was released on December 5 of that year, Fauci was questioned by the New Civil Liberties Alliance and the attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana (Eric Schmitt and Jeff Landry).
According to the transcript, Fauci answered questions with "I don't recall" 174 times. He also claimed he didn't know key collaborators and was only vaguely familiar with projects he funded at the WIV, the lab in or from which the COVID-19 pandemic appears to have originated. The following excerpt from the transcript illustrates this:
Number Nine: Fauci's Suppression of The Great Barrington Declaration
Fauci also had a memory lapse during the same November 23, 2022 deposition about his suppression of The Great Barrington Declaration, which called for focused protection of the vulnerable and isolation of those infected rather than nationwide lockdowns. Focused protection has been a longstanding basic principle of public health that has been followed for decades.
Emails reveal Fauci and Francis Collins colluded behind the scenes to quash the declaration from day one, and since they couldn't defend lockdowns based on science, they resorted to propaganda, PR, and smear tactics. In an October 8, 2020, email to Fauci, Collins wrote,
"The proposal from the three fringe epidemiologists … seems to be getting a lot of attention … There needs to be a quick and devastating published take down of its premises …"
"Don't worry, I got this," Fauci replied. Later, Fauci sent Collins links to newly published articles refuting the focused protection solution, including an op-ed in Wired magazine, and an article in The Nation titled "Focused Protection, Herd Immunity and Other Deadly Delusions."
The following excerpt from the deposition transcript shows his memory lapse on this matter:
Number Ten: COVID-19 Shots Prevent Transmission
In a MSNBC interview, Fauci stated the following benefit of the COVID-19 shot, “You want to be a dead end to the virus. So, if the virus gets to you, you stop it. You don’t allow it to use you as the stepping stone to the next person.”
The question is how can the BOH believe this when the December 10, 2020 Federal Drug and Administration (FDA) briefing document for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine clearly shows the uncertainty of the shots preventing transmission. During the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Meeting, the following was revealed under 8.2 on page 48:
Vaccine effectiveness against transmission of SARS-CoV-2 Data are limited to assess the effect of the vaccine against transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from individuals who are infected despite vaccination.
An FDA news release on December 11, 2020 for Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 shot affirmed this uncertainty, for the last sentence under the “FDA Evaluation of Available Effectiveness Data” heading reads as follows:
“At this time, data are not available to make a determination about how long the vaccine will provide protection, nor is there evidence that the vaccine prevents transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from person to person.”
The above statement comes from end of the paragraph under the FDA Evaluation of Available Effectiveness Data subheading.
As for the Moderna COVID-19 shot, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Meeting on December 17, 2022 revealed an FDA Briefing Document in which page forty-nine read as follows:
8.2 Unknown Benefits/Data Gaps
Data are limited to assess the effect of the vaccine against transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from individuals who are infected despite vaccination
Page forty-nine also revealed,
“Data are limited to assess the effect of the vaccine in preventing asymptomatic infection as measured by detection of the virus and/or detection of antibodies against non-vaccine antigens that would indicate infection rather than an immune response induced by the vaccine.”
Number Eleven: Gain of Function
This is strongly connected to the Wuhan lab leak but proving that Fauci lied to congress about not funding gain of function research is much more difficult to pull off. The following two links to articles by investigative reporter Paul Thacker trace in detail Fauci’s funding of gain of function research at the Wuhan Lab.
Number Twelve: Passed Out for Twenty-Four Hours
Many of Fauci’s critics posit that his shots for COVID-19 were just water-solutions. But proof that he at least took the primary shots surfaced in a January 21, 2021 article in The Hill.
The article begins as follows:
The nation's top infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci told reporters on Thursday that the second round of the COVID-19 vaccine knocked him out for 24 hours.
“I did. I had it on the 19th. I was hoping that I wouldn’t get too knocked out. I did for about 24 hours. Now I’m fine,” Fauci said after he was asked if he received the second dose of the vaccine at a White House event.
“Fatigued. A little achy. You know. Chilly. Not sick,” Fauci clarified.
No other media outlets, however, reported this story. Why Fauci never told anybody else about the incident is a mystery as well.
A bigger mystery is why the BOH remains oblivious to the public’s skepticism of Fauci, such as the Fauci “Crimes Against Humanity” protest at the Seattle Summit Convention Center held two Sundays before the letter to Fauci was written. After all, paying attention to protests such as this works much better toward gaining public trust than spitting out Fauci’s propaganda.
