The Trump Administration Really Do Want To Kill Us

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (Thanks Charlie!):

Emails obtained by POLITICO show Paul Alexander — a senior adviser to Michael Caputo, HHS’s assistant secretary for public affairs — instructing press officers and others at the National Institutes of Health about what Fauci should say during media interviews. The Trump adviser weighed in on Fauci’s planned responses to outlets including Bloomberg News, BuzzFeed, Huffington Post and the science journal Cell.

“Alexander’s lengthy messages, some sent as recently as this week, are couched as scientific arguments. But they often contradict mainstream science while promoting political positions taken by the Trump administration on hot-button issues ranging from the use of convalescent plasma to school reopening. The emails add to evidence that the White House, and Trump appointees within HHS, are pushing health agencies to promote a political message instead of a scientific one.”

“I continue to have an issue with kids getting tested and repeatedly and even university students in a widespread manner…and I disagree with Dr. Fauci on this. Vehemently,” Alexander wrote in one Aug. 27 email, responding to a press-office summary of what Fauci intended to tell a Bloomberg reporter.

And on Tuesday, Alexander told Fauci’s press team that the scientist should not promote mask-wearing by children during an MSNBC interview.

It’s bad enough that our Liar-in-Chief is trying to kill us all, but that there’s a plan to have all the public-facing medical people lie to us, too.

Fauci is a public servant, and he’s clearly staying in the battle (when he could be comfortably retired) because he feels a duty and responsibility. This puts Dr. Fauci in the unenviable position of being honest or being replaced by someone who will tell the official lies.

    The next administration better bring the will to prosecute all of these criminals for all of their crimes- including the reckless endangerment of the American public.

      I wouldn’t wager any Quatloos on that (non)-happening if I were you. After watching Obummer practically pardon Shrub in public, claiming a need to “move beyond past mistakes,” and knowing Biden’s penchant for placating and forgiveness, I wouldn’t expect much in the way of legal retribution, especially since he’ll have so many other fires to put out simultaneously. (Hoping I’m wrong, but you know I’m likely right.)

      Because, knowing LDN like we do, we can readily assume he will do as much damage as possible to the country before leaving, if he senses even a hint of defeat. He will want his revenge on an unfaithful, totally disloyal voting public, even before it’s fully deserved.

    Not surprising considering the motto of this administrations is “Damn the unintended consequences. Full speed ahead.”

    This is not one party trying to get a leg up on the other party in an election, like with Nixon. Nor is this a small cabal or Washintonites lying the country into a war for shekels, power and giggles. like the Bush administration — although that was murder, too.

    This time it is an administration backed by a nearly complete party (or splinter party) trying to take apart the Constitution and see up a whole different country. This is treason! And in that attempt, they have given short shrift to necessary governance; which is why 190,000 Americans are dead and it appears that they either plan to make it worse, or they just don’t give a fuck. And that is murder — mass murder!

    If the Democratic party allows them to go free from this to work in the boardrooms of influential corporations and hang around as elder statesmen, we won’t have to wait for the Republicans to get in again for this to become a banana republic, or worse. It will be one already.
