The short answer to this question is, “I don’t know.” But neither do all of the critics online – even the ones that insist that they do, that Fauci is a ‘criminal’, etc.That said, be sure to check out Dr. Judy Michowitz’s arguments in the videos in the More Common Sense section on the 5/10/20 Home and other pages.
Certain facts should be considered before buying into the numerous ‘conspiracy’ oriented videos popping up on You Tube and Facebook that blame Dr. Fauci for everything from Coronavirus itself to complicity with pharmaceutical companies to being directly responsible for a grant to Chinese doctors in Wuhan.
One would think that someone would want to just do a brief check of the NIH (National Health Institute) where Dr. Fauci works before automatically assigning blame based on the report of one ‘doctor’ or Ph.D. on a video.
What Does Dr. Fauci Do And How Much Power Does He Have At The NIH?
At the most, Dr. Fauci is the guy under the guy under the guy.
Maybe he is lower on the totem pole – it is hard to know from the organizational chart on the NIH page. What is clear is that there is a current director of the NIH – not Fauci. There are also a handful of different Associate Directors – also not Fauci. Then, there are the 27 Division heads – one of these is Dr. Fauci. It is unclear whether there is another layer of organizational supervision over the Division directors or not.
The offices of the Director and all of the research and funding arms of the NIH appear to be separate from the Division Heads at the NIH. This means that direct funding to the Wuhan Lab in China most likely did not go directly through Dr. Fauci. According to Newsmax, this funding was begun in 2015 during the Obama administration.
Dr. Fauci is the Director of the NIAID (National Institute Of Allergy And Infectious Diseases). He is one of 27 Institute Directors under the head of the executive leadership of the NIH.
Another thing to note about the overall leadership of the NIH is that all of the current leadership appears to have been appointed either during the Clinton administration of the 1990’s or the Obama administration from 2008 to 2016. From a quick look at the organizational pages we could not find one person who had been appointed to leadership in the Trump era – perhaps we missed something.
We are not blaming or absolving Dr. Fauci for misinformation relative to Coronavirus or anything else. We simply don’t know and we don’t believe any of the other critics on numerous online videos do either. The exception is Dr. Judy Michowitz’s arguments, which we reference above. Be sure to check out the credible statements she makes about Fauci, Birx, and the entire HHS system.
There may be a ‘rat’ in the White House relative to information on the Coronavirus. If so, that ‘rat’ is the continued flow of tainted information and corrupt actions associated with the ‘Deep Swamp’ due to the massive ‘leftist’ influence that prior administrations both strategized and implanted and which continues to operate largely unimpeded within the Federal government today. That said, that ‘rat’ may include Fauci and Birx and others – or not.
