The Biden administration is rushing to capitalize on the latest variant in order to terrorize Americans into getting their jabs and booster shots and, once again, Dr. Anthony Fauci is at the tip of the spear as the nation’s public face of COVID lays the groundwork for another round of punishing restrictions, but he was unable to explain a major inconsistency when cornered by reporter Peter Doocy.
President Joe Biden is expected to announce his plan for combatting the omicron strain on Thursday which reportedly will include the unprecedented requirement that all people entering the country be subjected to a seven-day quarantine period, regardless of whether or not they have been vaccinated, and will likely also include U.S. citizens.
There will also be an increased emphasis on testing, a recommendation that is fully supported by Fauci whose superstardom has again been prolonged by a mysterious new variant that will almost certainly be exploited by Democrats and their allies to push for more of the same authoritarianism that has become their trademark and which future historians may one day recognize as a blight on the nation’s history.
But Fauci was tripped up on Wednesday during his guest appearance at the daily White House press briefing where he fielded softballs from the usual gaggle of fawning reporters when Fox News bulldog Peter Doocy posed a question that laid bare Biden’s top medical adviser’s hypocrisy as well as exposed him as just another political apparatchik in service to the Democratic party.
Doocy caught the career bureaucrat off guard when he asked whether those who are crossing the border illegally will be subject to the more stringent testing policies, a query that briefly knocked Fauci off of his pedestal as he sought to explain what has been the biggest contradiction in Biden’s war on COVID, the hordes of immigrants who his administration has rolled out the welcome mat for.
“Dr. Fauci, as you advise the president about the possibility of new testing requirements for people coming into this country, does that include everybody?” asked Doocy.
Fauci responded, “The answer is yes. Because you know that the new — the new regulation — if you want to call it that — is that anybody and everybody who’s coming into the country needs to get a test within 24 hours of getting on the plane to come here.”
Doocy then tripped him up, “But what about people who don’t take a plane and just — these border crossers coming in in huge numbers in a sense?”
“You know, but that’s a different issue.” Fauci dodged. “For example, when you talk — we still have Title 42,” referring to the U.S. code, “with regard to protection at the border, so there are protections at the border — that you don’t have the capability, as you know, of somebody getting on a plane, getting checked, looking at a passport, we don’t have that there, but we can get some degree of mitigation.”
The tenacious reporter didn’t let up, asking,”Is there something to do to test these people somewhere else before they get here?”
Fauci replied, “There — no, there — there is testing at the border under certain circumstances, as you know.”
At that point, White House Jen Psaki intervened to save Fauci by calling on another reporter.
The longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases continues to be protected by the media despite his history of contradictory statements, the constant shifting of the goalposts, and most recently, his arrogant proclamation that he is immune to legitimate congressional oversight because he IS the science.
Biden’s new COVID edicts will come at a time when his vaccine mandates are taking a beating in the courts as he struggles to convince holdouts to be jabbed, look for him to put the “bully” back into the bully pulpit in the coming weeks.
