Fox News Chris Wallace Claims: Americans Returning from Europe are Carrying the Coronavirus….

Dr. Anthony Fauci appears on Fox News to discuss the latest administration efforts to mitigate the impacts of the coronavirus.  As soon as the interview begins Fox News Chris Wallace makes a startling claim about Americans returning from abroad:

“You can see them here, in close proximity, coming back from Europe, some of them carrying the coronavirus“…

Really?   Chris Wallace criticizes the administration over every granular word assembly; yet, amid his pathological need to hype fear and panic, Wallace seemingly has no self-awareness about his own statements.  Again, more ridiculousness.

If taken at its purest presentation (and it shouldn’t be)…. If what Wallace claims is correct, doesn’t the appearance of infected people at U.S. airports by itself explain the need for the screening he is criticizing?

.

Additionally, it is becoming increasingly clear Dr. Fauci has entered a psychological phase where he’s become addicted to his own sense of importance. His need to appear on all media everywhere, is now a detriment to the administration effort.

    It’s important that we realize it’s the narrative hype; not the virus, that will bring our country down. Money talks. We need to turn off the tv and stop clicking on the articles. Perhaps this will bring the excessive coverage to an end.

      I looked up Fauci and H1N1. There are a series of recorded, factual interviews that appear to have been produced by the WH perhaps? Fauci is in his office and the interviews are factual and fairly low key. The same interviewer in each one. Maybe an approach like that would be better. The administration needs to keep the media jackals away, they are not helping. The daily news conferences are gotcha feeding frenzies.

    The Administration reads your work daily Sundance. The Doctor appears very tired- his right being partially closed. An overdose of TDS infected media talking heads will do that-even to supermen like our wolverines on occasion. That being said you can bet your ass the President is in watching and when he sees fit will make a move regarding the doctors public speaking engagements.

      Fauci’s right eye shows a little ptosis. Easily correctable with a small surgery…but, at such an advanced age, why bother? It’s just a stretched tendon.

      He’s a really smart guy, however. Perhaps a bit self-important now? I wouldn’t disagree, but let the fella have his “15 minutes.”

        He was low key on Lou Dobbs every night for a couple of days and started to hype it a little more each day, like ‘ol Tucker. I just won’t watch any of them anymore. Puffed up little talking heads make me angry these days. President Trump is understanding and humble. He tries to get the petty bureaucrats to do something good.

          Fauci is promoting the Demo narrative that this all wouldn’t be a crisis if Trump had hurried up and got the ball rolling for tests, vaccines, and cures.The truth is, we have had to get the ball rolling for 6 other massive health scares, in the past, and they were very different from this one. The rules and regulations that were in place were impeding progress and had to be changed. Trump isn’t a doctor or a lab-rat and doesn’t know much of the language of those who are. He doesn’t deserve the criticizing that’s so rampant and Fauci is pushing it. he wasn’t at first. But today, with Chris Wallace, he gave him just exactly what he wanted….blame the President fortnot having tests in parking lots right this minute!

        Pardon the discursion but I hadn’t thought about this in years … I was an IT tech guy for 35 years which means I too survived the y2k scare. I think 99.89% of us knew at the time nothing was going to happen apart from a few minor foul ups, but that doesn’t mean various company’s execs weren’t nervous. I was giving a presentation to a bunch of our clients one day in ’98 and a nervous sort of a guy asked me if I was worried about the y2k bug. I said, nah, I’m more worried about the y5b bug. “Y5B bug?” “Yeah, you know, the year 5 billion when the sun burns out– we’ll all be in big trouble then!”

          Yes, there has always been some kind of scare tactic the media or gubt has used on us since I was a child hiding under our classroom desks/tables because of the threat of the cold war.

          I went to kindergarten in a 2 classroom schoolhouse. The one and only bathroom was in the basement.

          It had a slide out one of the classroom windows that was supposed to be used in the case of fire. We also used it whenever the teacher left the room.

          BTW, we all lived through this trying ordeal.

              That’s funny. My kindergarten was 1 story too, it was just elevated enough to have that slide out the back window. Metal slide, like all the other outdoor play equipment.

              The worst that happened to me in this school is that I got my nose broken when trying to help move one of the heavy duty real wood tables we sat around instead of desks. Someone used a little to much power and slammed it into my face.

My fourth grade teacher was a raving loon who got fired at, I think it was Thanksgiving, and he covered the class through the end of the school year. The reason I remember the guy is because when it would rain and there was no recess, I’d spend the time drawing airplanes. Now *that* guy could draw planes and he taught me how (you know, to the extent a 9 year old can) and told me stories about flying in the war.

    If Clarice Feldman can find this and educate the American public, how is it that Dr Fauci, who was the guy who wrote the durn Obama regs, does not know?

      They get everything second hand. What is not filtered is distorted.. They tend to bounce back and forth between what they’ve known and what they hear inside the bubble. There is little time for anything else.

      They are charged with a task in an environment where everything is somewhat corrupted by agency politics and backbiting, compromised by career politics, and rivalry, among medical and non-medical people surrounding them.

      But it gets worse. You may be surprised to hear this, the problem is exponentially greater in “big medicine” and “university medicine” which are far worse in this way than we visualize government to be. There are many swamps. some are cult-like, like big medicine and university cartels monopolizing federal policy and grant making.

      Be certain of this. The swampers are coming to feed on Covid-19. Even the most tangential parasitic rodents like a beady-eyed Chris Wallace wiggling his nose.

    I have to say that I very much agree with the general premise of the article regarding the constant rotating appearances with these Democrat supporting network hacks by certain members of the Coronavirus Task Force. Basically with a couple exceptions most members are hands on lab or analytical science geeks who in the normal course of their job never get the opportunity of getting thrust on the public stage to expouse their scientific acumen. And that’s the problem. They’re constantly asked leading questions about their opinion with an underlying judgement about the POA and leadership decisions. This plays right into the hands of reacting to the media and their agenda. That said the Task Force needs to get their act together regarding unified direct responses. Also, VP Pence, although a good example of patience, calm and professionalism, needs to start calling out and debunking any stupid calculated media questions designed incite panic or unjustly question the decision making and actions fo the Task Force and likewise the federal government. Heck, when the media starts thrashing around you don’t return to the scripted response but address it head on and squash it. In closing, it makes a big difference when answering a question about the severity of the impact regarading coronavirus by saying “we’re prepared for any situation” versus ” we’re still in the early stages of coronavirus with not much overall statistical data however it could have less impact than the seasonal flu but we always plan for any contigency”. If the MSM is stupid enough to venture into contradicting that, the current numbers (and refreshing their memories about the do nothing Obama 2009-2010 H1N1 response) will shut them up and put them in their place.

    Fauci is now as invested in this massive overreaction as anyone in the world. He will never admit that there is no factual basis or public health basis for this panic. When Wallace asks him how he knows this virus is more contagious than other flu viruses his exact answer is that “it just is”. That was the only statement he offered in support of his claim. He doesn’t have any factual or scientific basis for beliving this virus is more contagious than other viruses or else he would have stated the basis. We are effed on this country. The number one reason that the media and powers that be have hyped this panic is to harm Trump. They illegally spied on him and his campaign, they manufactured a special counsel investigation to gin up an obstruction charge, they invented a whistle blower complaint and impeached him while this pandemic was emerging and when that failed they came up with the “this is Trump’s Katrina” in the firm of a Chinese originated pandemic in which the US has suffered a fraction of the deaths and confirmed cases that have occurred in orher countries. Make no mistake, the overreaction is going to destroy our economy. Here in LA thecstreets are empty and so are the stores except for grocery stores. It will take a long time for us to recover and it has been completely manufactured by the left in service of their lust for power. We are teally screwed.

    South Korea is about 39,000 sq miles in size. Thats about the size of Kentucky or Ohio.
    If all the US federal government had to do was equip the state of Kentucky with testing facilities, it could have been done weeks ago. This country is over 3.5 Million square miles or about 100 times the size of South Korea. Apparently no one in Leftwing Media understands the scalability of logistical challenges.

    Fauci has become an attention whore, going on every program saying different things to induce fear. Fauci never mentions what Dr. Brix said during a recent presser that 98% of those being tested were negative. And he never mentions that 80% of those with the virus self-resolve with no treatment and little to no symptoms. (Go to the CDC website if you doubt my statements.) Since China has had this since at least November and never told us, and we probably got it in January/February, isn’t it possible the virus mutated to something less severe than the one in China? No one is talking about that. And no one is talking about whether those that are already healed had previously gotten a regular flu shot or not. Did the ones in China who died ever get a flu shot prior contracting this virus? These are important questions to ask.
