Folks, its not too often that the man (or woman) behind the curtain outs themselves and takes a bow for their skullduggery; but occasionally, the villain has enough hubris to do just that. Enter one, Deborah Birx. This woman is evil incarnate and thinks herself quite the opposite. Everything wrong with the government’s response to Covid 19 was not only her fault but her idea.
Here’s a partial list of things that she did as the lead doctor on the White House Covid task force.
- Came up with two weeks to flatten the curve which she knew was a lie
- Limit social gatherings to ten people when she really wanted zero
- Use federal bureaucrats to give governors cover to lockdown their states
- She fought for unending shutdowns
- She came up with asymptomatic spread of the virus with zero proof
- Brix doctored—sorry about the pun—White House communications with state governors and health officials
- Brix denounced any real science as subterfuge
- Face masks
The only thing I can’t find for certain is whether it was her idea to keep six feet apart but after everything else I found out about her; I believe it’s likely.
Folks, most of the rest of this post is quotes of others who are quoting the doctor’s book and then comment on it. Please read the source material cited. Lastly, any emphasis within the quotation is from the quoted source and not added by me.
Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator for President Trump, launched her book about her one-person attack on our form of government and our economy under the guise of saving us from the Wuhan virus. Though it has been out for a couple of months, it is only now attracting the attention it deserves. The book is called Silent Invasion and, to quote Michael Senger, “reads like a how-to guide in subverting a democratic superpower from within, as could only be told through the personal account of someone who was on the front lines doing just that.”Former Trump COVID Honcho Birx Admits to Deceiving the White House and Just Making Stuff up to Push Her Personal Agenda
Dr. Deborah Birx, who served as the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator under President Donald Trump, has admitted in a new book that she manipulated data and altered quietly altered Useless CDC guidance without authorization.
In “Silent Invasion,” she confesses she “devised” a “strategic sleight-of-hand” method of reporting she described as “subterfuge.”
“This wasn’t the only bit of subterfuge I had to engage in,” she writes.
Birx insisted, contrary to the White House and the CDC, that the asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 was significant.
She says that “eight months into the pandemic, many at both the White House and the Useless CDC still refused to see that silent spread played a prominent role in viral spread and that it started with social gatherings, especially among the younger adults.”
Birx opposed the advice of then-coronavirus adviser Dr. Scott Atlas to limit testing on the premise that asymptomatic transmission was minimal and not driving the pandemic.
She and then Useless CDC Director Robert Redfield “agreed to quietly rewrite the guidance and post it to the Useless CDC website.”
“We would not seek approval. Because we were both quite busy, it might take a week or two, but we were committed to subverting the dangerous message that limiting testing was the right thing to do,” she writes.
Birx recalls a phone call from White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows: “What the hell do you think you’re doing? You rewrote and posted the Useless CDC testing stuff,” said Meadows, according to Birx’ account.
“Yes, I did, but – ” Birx replied.
“There’s no ‘buts’ here. You went over my head,” Meadows said, according to Birx.Dr. Deborah Birx admits she deceived Trump to push COVID measures
So just to recap, here we have Deborah Birx—the woman who did more than almost any other person in the United States to promote and prolong Covid lockdowns, silencing anyone who disagreed with her, to the incessant praise of mainstream media outlets—telling us she’d been inspired by all those images of Wuhan residents falling dead and constructing a hospital in 10 days, and still didn’t realize they were fake two years after they’d been proven fake.
And that’s just Chapter 1.Deborah Birx’s Guide to Destroying A Country From Within
Birx proudly recalls using “flatten-the-curve guidance” to manipulate the President’s administration into consenting to lockdowns that were stricter than they realized.
“On Monday and Tuesday, while sorting through the CDC data issues, we worked simultaneously to develop the flatten-the-curve guidance I hoped to present to the vice president at week’s end. Getting buy-in on the simple mitigation measures every American could take was just the first step leading to longer and more aggressive interventions. We had to make these palatable to the administration by avoiding the obvious appearance of a full Italian lockdown. At the same time, we needed the measures to be effective at slowing the spread, which meant matching as closely as possible what Italy had done—a tall order. We were playing a game of chess in which the success of each move was predicated on the one before it.”
Birx doubles down, inadvertently admitting where that arbitrary number “ten” came from for her guidance as to the size of social gatherings, while admitting her real goal was “zero”—no social contact of any kind, anywhere.
I had settled on ten knowing that even that was too many, but I figured that ten would at least be palatable for most Americans—high enough to allow for most gatherings of immediate family but not enough for large dinner parties and, critically, large weddings, birthday parties, and other mass social events.… Similarly, if I pushed for zero (which was actually what I wanted and what was required), this would have been interpreted as a “lockdown”—the perception we were all working so hard to avoid.
Birx divulges her strategy of using federal advisories to give cover to state governors to impose mandates and restrictions.
“The White House would “encourage,” but the states could “recommend” or, if needed, “mandate.” In short, we were handing governors and their public health officials a template, a state-level permission slip they could use to enact a specific response that was appropriate for the people under their jurisdiction. The fact that the guidelines would be coming from a Republican White House gave political cover to any Republican governors skeptical of federal overreach”
Then, Birx recalls with delight as her strategy led the states to shut down one by one.
“[T]he recommendations served as the basis for governors to mandate the flattening-the-curve shutdowns. The White House had handed down guidance, and the governors took that ball and ran with it…With the White House’s “this is serious” message, governors now had “permission” to mount a proportionate response and, one by one, other states followed suit. California was first, doing so on March 18. New York followed on March 20. Illinois, which had declared its own state of emergency on March 9, issued shelter-in-place orders on March 21. Louisiana did so on the twenty-second. In relatively short order by the end of March and the first week of April, there were few holdouts. The circuit-breaking, flattening-the-curve shutdown had begun.”
In what may be the most damning quote of the entire US response to Covid, in one paragraph, Birx tells us that she’d always intended “two weeks to slow the spread” as a lie and immediately wanted those two weeks extended, despite having no data to show why that was necessary.
“No sooner had we convinced the Trump administration to implement our version of a two-week shutdown than I was trying to figure out how to extend it. Fifteen Days to Slow the Spread was a start, but I knew it would be just that. I didn’t have the numbers in front of me yet to make the case for extending it longer, but I had two weeks to get them. However hard it had been to get the fifteen-day shutdown approved, getting another one would be more difficult by many orders of magnitude.”
Birx frequently emphasizes her fixation with the concept of “asymptomatic spread.” In her mind, the less sick a person is, the more “insidious” they are:
“Asymptomatic, presymptomatic, and even mildly symptomatic spread are particularly insidious because, with these, many people don’t know they are infected. They may not take precautions or may not practice good hygiene, and they don’t isolate.”
In the days before Thanksgiving 2020, she had warned Americans to “assume you’re infected” and to restrict gatherings to “your immediate household.” Then she packed her bags and headed to Fenwick Island in Delaware where she met with four generations for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, as if she were free to make normal choices and live a normal life while everyone else had to shelter in place.Dr. Birx Praises Herself While Revealing Ignorance, Treachery, and Deceit
Where did she come up with the idea of lockdowns? By her own report, her only real experience with infectious disease came from her work on AIDS, a very different disease from a respiratory virus that everyone would eventually get but which would only be fatal or even severe for a small cohort, a fact that was known since late January. Still, her experience counted for more than science.
“In any health crisis, it is crucial to work at the personal behavior level,” she says with the presumption that avoidance at all costs was the only goal. “With HIV/AIDS, this meant convincing asymptomatic people to get tested, to seek treatment if they were HIV-positive, and to take preventative measures, including wearing condoms; or to employ other pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) if they were negative.”
She immediately hops to the analogy with Covid. “I knew the government agencies would need to do the same thing to have a similar effect on the spread of this novel coronavirus. The most obvious parallel with the HIV/AIDS example was the message of wearing masks.”
Masks = condoms. Remarkable. This “obvious parallel” remark sums the whole depth of her thinking. Behavior is all that matters. Just stay apart. Cover your mouth. Don’t gather. Don’t travel. Close the schools. Close everything. Whatever happens, don’t get it. Nothing else matters. Keep your immune system as unexposed as possible.
Here is an example. There was a controversy about how many people should be allowed to gather in one space, as in home, church, store, stadium, or community center. She addresses how she came up with the rules:
“The real problem with this fifty-versus-ten distinction, for me, was that it revealed that the CDC simply didn’t believe to the degree that I did that SARS-CoV-2 was being spread through the air silently and undetected from symptomless individuals. The numbers really did matter. As the years since have confirmed, in times of active viral community spread, as many as fifty people gathered together indoors (unmasked at this point, of course) was way too high a number. It increased the chances of someone among that number being infected exponentially. I had settled on ten knowing that even that was too many, but I figured that ten would at least be palatable for most Americans—high enough to allow for most gatherings of immediate family but not enough for large dinner parties and, critically, large weddings, birthday parties, and other mass social events.”
She puts a fine point on it: “if I pushed for zero (which was actually what I wanted and what was required), this would have been interpreted as a ‘lockdown’—the perception we were all working so hard to avoid.”
Notice her above mention of her dogma that asymptomatic spread was the whole key to understanding pandemic. In other words, on her own and without any scientific support, she presumed that Covid was both extremely fatal and had a long latency period. To her way of thinking, this is why the usual tradeoff between severity and prevalence did not matter.
She was somehow certain that the longest estimates of latency were correct: 14 days. This is the reason for the “wait two weeks” obsession. She held onto this dogma throughout, almost like the fictional movie “Contagion” had been her only guide to understanding.
Birx admits that she was a major part of the reason, due to her sneaky alternation of weekly reports to the states.
“After the heavily edited documents were returned to me, I’d reinsert what they had objected to, but place it in those different locations. I’d also reorder and restructure the bullet points so the most salient—the points the administration objected to most—no longer fell at the start of the bullet points. I shared these strategies with the three members of the data team also writing these reports. Our Saturday and Sunday report-writing routine soon became: write, submit, revise, hide, resubmit.
Fortunately, this strategic sleight-of-hand worked. That they never seemed to catch this subterfuge left me to conclude that, either they read the finished reports too quickly or they neglected to do the word search that would have revealed the language to which they objected. In slipping these changes past the gatekeepers and continuing to inform the governors of the need for the big-three mitigations—masks, sentinel testing, and limits on indoor social gatherings—I felt confident I was giving the states permission to escalate public health mitigation with the fall and winter coming.
So there you have it. Deborah Birx was the witch behind the curtain that inspired and encouraged petty bureaucrats all over the nation to kill the greatest economic boon since Ronald Reagan while flooding the cable news world with crap that people still cling to today which she knew was false before she said it. Truth was the first casualty of the Covid era. We, on the Right were correct that this whole thing was BS.
Her justification was that she knew what was best for others. What an egotistical piece of human garbage. Folks this is the classic definition of tyranny, the “Big Lie”, or whatever name you wish to use.
Her actions cost lives and harmed millions of people.
She cost lives by attacking off the shelf stuff that worked effectively against Covid. She cost lives by keeping people from needed medical care because the healthcare community was all tied up in putting people on ventilators and killing people that could have recovered if she had told the truth. She harmed millions of elderly by keeping them from being visited by the ones that love them. She harmed million of young children that lost two years of school and will be hard-pressed to have normal lives due to the lack of social skills and life skills like reading, writing, and such. These and many others were also inflicted with mental health issues due to prolonged periods of isolation and separation. All this because she lied.
Folks we all saw this and could do little because her lies were “the science” and still are in much of the country. True science was relegated to accusations of fringe nutjobs and conspiracy theorists. Again anyone bringing forth any challenge to her orthodoxy was crucified on social media by her willing accomplices. She went scorched earth on everyone that dared to defy her. She destroyed anyone professionally and personally that got on her way. She silenced all but personal dissent in the United States.
Also this week, we learned that she even made a pact with people at the National Institute of Heath, Centers for Disease Control and other agencies that if their proclamations were ignored, they would quit en masse. Not that I care if they quit but the corollary to that is they purposed to stick together and parrot the leader. No wonder Fauci and company were changing their story every week or two.
Read the attached stuff that I linked.
Birx is the reason that children in southern California schools are about to start wearing masks again. She lied her ass off about risks and invented protocols to treat Covid out of the dark recesses of her
As you read thru the articles, look out for a curious throwaway line by Mike Pence. Pence was in charge of the government response to Covid and Birx was on the panel too. Pence was asked where Birx came from and his response was the he “just inherited her”. Let that soak in for a moment; WFT? He just inherited her? That can only mean she was a relic left over from the Obama Administration. Everyone wrongly assumed she must be a MAGA person, but she clearly was not.
I could rant on but you get the point.
Oh, so how did this mistress of science get separated from her powerful government job?
She broke her own rules and for some reason, the media decided to crucify her for it. Had they really known what she was up to, they would have left her alone.
Her “tell all” book never mentions how she was forced to resign.
It goes something like this: after telling all of us not to gather for Thanksgiving but if we do keep it under ten people, she got together with four generations of her family to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. The media went full bore after her. I’m sure they thought they were hitting Donald Trump with one last blow before Biden took office. Little did they know that they were doing the Lord’s work by taking her out.
Folks, please understand that I’m not denying that Covid exists and many people got it. Ok, hold that thought, Birx was also adamant that any story about people having comorbidities being at higher risk of dying from Covid be quashed. She knew it was true but she didn’t want that out in public. She wanted maximum panic. Ok, now where was I? Oh yeah, some people died of Covid but many could have been saved if real science was allowed to happen.
If you recall, when Sleepy Joe took office, one of his first acts was to kill any ability to get off the shelf cures and insure that the government not only denounce them but let it be known that if any doctor prescribed them, they risked loosing their medical license and could face charges for promoting non-government sanctioned cures. By the way, this is why there were more Covid deaths under Joe Biden–who also had the “vaccine”–than under Donald Trump who didn’t.
Lastly, Birx succeeded in something that all others failed to attain, she took-out Donald Trump singlehandedly. Covid was the one time Trump was boxed into a corner and needed to trust “the experts” and look what we got. So now that Birx gets that credit, we can also give her credit for all the unnecessary deaths of the Biden Administration. Let’s start with the Afghanistan Retreat and the Ukraine War. Neither would have happened under Trump.
