Fauci Lied and People Died

Not to bring up a sore subject, but think back to April and May of 2020.

Do you remember how you felt, watching the nation and the world react to an unknown menace, suddenly ordered to isolate in place and unsure when, if ever, things would go back to normal?

That spring began a string of “unprecedented” events that continues even today, with possible consequences reaching into the future, if the WHO has its way.

In those tense months, certain authorities were put forth, namely National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director Anthony Fauci. Who could forget him? This is the author of social distancing and masks (arbitrary, unfounded, and since debunked) and “15 days to flatten the curve.”

He was also the highest-paid U.S. government official (making even more than the president!), who pushed vaccines and endless booster shots (with constantly changing assurances of efficacy), mocked those with sincere concern over the effects of pandemic policy, and claimed no ties to the Wuhan, China lab where the virus very likely originated and was leaked.

Now, we have Fauci’s former boss, National Institutes of Health (NIH) head Francis Collins, and others confirming almost every “conspiracy theory” that, if espoused at the time, made you a pariah and a selfish grandma-hater.

Turns out, our taxpayer dollars did make their way to the lab in Wuhan, funding “gain-of-function” research on bat coronaviruses. Turns out Fauci did lie, or at the very least, played fast and loose with definitions and obfuscated whenever asked about this research that increasingly appears to have unleashed the hell of 2020 and 2021 upon the world.

You have to hand it to Francis Collins – at least he’s being honest now about what he and other health officials did and did not know, and about what they still don’t know. He was complicit, but Fauci was deliberate.

Because of his arrogance and dishonesty, people died, some from the virus, others from despair. In many of these cases, they died alone.

  • Kids fell behind in school.
  • Businesses closed.
  • Churches were targeted.
  • Families and friendships were divided.
  • Grandparents and grandkids were kept from one another.

The pain goes on in those left behind and among those who, unbelievably, continue living by the narrative.

Imagine if you messed up royally in your job and lied about it, and then once your actions had wreaked havoc, you turned around and peddled the solution to the very problem you created.

At each point in this story, there would have been accountability for any of us. But not for Anthony Fauci. And now that he’s retired, he collects a massive pension and is set to publish a memoir about his life in “public service.”

Any one of us would be called to account for the types of actions Fauci took, but he will likely not experience consequences for his decisions. We can pray he comes under conviction by the work of the Holy Spirit, but in the temporal, we can only hope the truth keeps coming out.

Some will choose to ignore it because it does not fit the narrative they believe nor the abhorrent actions they took over the last several years. Others, like talking head Chris Cuomo, now see how much Fauci and others got wrong, but will never admit or apologize for the harm they did.

Those of us who were right to question the official government position on the pandemic will not hear an apology from the responsible parties, so we have to content ourselves with knowing our guts were right.

If there is anything we have learned since early 2020, it is that freedom is fragile, and there are many in power who will indiscriminately wield fear for personal gain.
