Former Trump COVID Honcho Birx Admits to Deceiving the White House and Just Making Stuff up to Push Her Personal Agenda – Opinion

White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx launched her book on her single-person attack against our government and economy, under the pretense of saving us the Wuhan virus. Although it’s been around for some time, the book is finally getting the attention that it deserves. This 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.”

There are some great reviews of the book out there that I won’t attempt to match (see here and here); rather, I’ll present some selected highlights.

Birx appears to have been aware that COVID was made in a Chinese laboratory.

Former President Donald Trump’s adviser believes Covid-19 could have leaked from a Wuhan lab where scientists were working on vaccines for similar viruses.

Infectious diseases expert and former presidential Covid adviser Dr Deborah Birx told The Mail on Sunday that coronavirus ‘came out of the box ready to infect’ when it emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2020.

It takes viruses months, if not years to infect humans. But, Dr Birx said, Covid ‘was already more infectious than flu when it first arrived’.

She said that meant Covid was either an ‘abnormal thing of nature’ or that Chinese scientists were ‘working on coronavirus vaccines’ and became infected.

‘It happens, labs aren’t perfect, people aren’t perfect, we make mistakes and there can be contamination,’ she said.

China was accused of concealing the fact that Covid was infectious.

Birx said Covid’s infectiousness was consistent with a virus which had been experimented on in a lab.

‘In laboratories you grow the virus in human cells, allowing it to adapt more. Each time it passes through human cells it becomes more adapted,’ she said.

Birx claimed to be heavily influenced from a Chinese video, which we now understand was an operation of Chinese intelligence.

Staring at my computer screen, I was horrified by the images from Wuhan, the suffering they portrayed, but also because they confirmed what I’d suspected for the last three weeks: Not only was the Chinese government underreporting the real numbers of the infected and dying in Wuhan and elsewhere, but the situation was definitely far more dire than most people outside that city realized. Up until now, I’d been only reading or hearing about the virus. This video was shared online by an empathetic doctor.

While she was falling for the horror videos, she also fell for the bullsh** story of a 1,000-bed hospital constructed in ten days.

We all believed it to be a fraud when we gave 15 days to slow the spread

After we had convinced Trump’s administration to go with our 2-week shutdown, I started trying to think of ways to increase it. The Fifteen Day Spread of Chaos was a good start. But I knew it would take much longer. 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. It was hard to get the fifteen day shutdown approved. However, it would have been much more challenging to obtain another one.

While we’re talking about frauds, can we remember the sordid and stupid history of the “six-foot separation” rule? READ: Six foot social separation is coming to an end, but the true story behind how it got here in the first place.

It was fraud that there was a 10-person limit for gatherings.

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.

I don’t think there has been any evidence that large social events have any effect on the spread of COVID. The media tried desperately to libel the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (As the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Begins the Same Tired People Make the Same Tired Apocalyptic Claims That It Is a ‘Superspreader’ Event) and the Super Bowl (Super Bowl Was Not a ‘Superspreader’ Event, Creating a Sad in the Pandemic Porn Industry) as “superspreader” events.

Birx wanted an Italy style lockdown but was scared to speak up.

At this point, I wasn’t about to use the words lockdown or shutdown.If I had uttered either of those in early March, after being at the White House only one week, the political, nonmedical members of the task force would have dismissed me as too alarmist, too doom-and-gloom, too reliant on feelings and not facts. They would have pushed to shut me down.

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. The first step to more extensive and longer-lasting interventions was getting buy-in for the basic mitigation steps that every American could adopt. These measures had to be acceptable to the government without giving the impression of an 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. The success of every move in chess was dependent on its predecessor.

.We saw glimmers of Birx’s duplicity in Anthony Fauci’s own morphing statements on mask wear (President Trump Refuses to Wear a Face Mask and You Shouldn’t Either; The Case for Masks Has Taken Another Body Blow). Birx didn’t have any data from China about how lockdowns or shutdowns work. Because America was not going to tolerate such absurdity, she started to implement smaller measures in order to achieve the lockdown.

We’ll return to the issue of duplicity in a moment.

Birx hated Dr. Scott Atlas…probably more now because he’s been proven right.

Dr. Scott Atlas joined COVID’s task force on 10 August 2020. He saw Birx’s game and fought it, ultimately being forced out of the White House. Michael Senger’s review is epic.

Birx’s apparent plan to almost singlehandedly destroy the world’s primary democratic superpower is going swimmingly until she meets the book’s leading antagonist: Dr. Scott Atlas. To Birx’s disgust, Atlas takes a strong stand for all the things she loathes most—things like human rights, democratic governance, and, most of all, freedom.
Birx lists Atlas’s “dangerous assertions”:

These schools might be open anywhere.Without any precautions, (neither testing nor masking), no matter what the situation in the community.
Children did not carry the virus.
That children didn’t get ill.There was absolutely no danger to any young person.
Covid-19 was overplayed for so long.
The findings of heart damage were incidental.
It was not clear that comorbidities played a significant role in community life, particularly among teachers.
That merely employing some physical distance overcame the virus’s ill effects.
Masks weren’t necessary, and they were overrated.
The Coronavirus Taskforce had helped the country get into this predicament by encouraging testing.
The false increase in cases was due to the testingComparatively to other countries, the United States is more populous than most.
That targeted testing and isolation constituted a lockdown, plain and simple, and weren’t needed.

That every word of Atlas’s assertions was obviously 100% true only made them all the more dangerous. As Alexandr Solzhenitsyn said, “One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world,” and nothing would derail the world’s communist destiny faster than letting these self-evident truths spread freely.

Atlas is vindicated by bold-faced entries. The list will tell you which person was right.

Senger: More on Atlas hate

Scott Atlas recounts this in his book. The Plague Has Come to Our House:

Birx expressed concern about testing people who are symptomatic. She stated that it was the only way of determining who is sick. She memorably exclaimed, “That’s why it’s so dangerous—people don’t even know they’re sick!” I felt myself looking around the room, wondering if I was the only one who had heard this.

Birx, for roughly 150 pages, recalls her pain at Atlas’ defeat and her desire to put America into a permanent lockdown. As Atlas recalls:

As we stood close to the Oval Office door, she threw an entire fit right in front of everybody. She was furious, screaming at me, “NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!! IN THE OVAL!” Because she was so mad, I felt awful. I had absolutely no desire for conflict. Did she really expect me to lie about my situation to the president in order to make her look better? I responded, “Sorry, but he asked me a question, so I answered it.”


Birx and not Fauci called the shots.

Back to Senger quoting Scott Atlas’ book.

Indeed, Birx’s memoir corroborates the testimony in Atlas’s book of the outsized role he played in bringing lockdowns in the United States to an end. More importantly, it involved standing up against Birx who, contrary what popular opinion says, was more aggressive in his promotion and extension of lockdowns across America. As Atlas explains:

On a daily basis Dr. Fauci was in public view, and many mistakenly believe he is in charge. It was actually Dr. Birx that created Task Force policy. Dr. Birx provided all the state advice that the Task Force gave. Dr. Birx wrote all recommendations on their ground policies. Dr. Birx conducted almost all the visits to states on behalf of the Task Force.

It could be, or it may not. If you read Birx’s bio, it is obvious that she was Fauci’s creature. His star was her wagon. She was mentored by him. She is unlikely to act independently and Fauci will not let a single molecule of his power escape from him. It would not be wise for the nation to absolve Fauci arbitrarily of any role in the COVID scandal before the jury returns a verdict.

Birx deceived President Trump and his advisors and lied.

Shocking, right? It is shocking to think that someone with terminal god syndrome, an entitled and privileged liberal, would try to deceive others in order for her gain.

This is from Jeffrey Tucker’s review of the Birx book.

Birx admitted that she was part of the cause, due to her scrupulous alternation between weekly reports to the USA.

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. These strategies were shared with three other members of the data team who also wrote these reports. The Saturday and Sunday reports-writing sessions quickly became: write, submit, revise, hide, resubmit.

This strategic maneuver worked, fortunately. I concluded that they didn’t catch the subterfugel because they either read too fast or did not do the word search to find the correct language. 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.

As another example, once Scott Atlas came to the rescue in August to introduce some good sense into this wacky world, he worked with others to dial back the CDC’s fanatical attachment to universal and constant testing. Atlas knew that “track, trace, and isolate” was both a fantasy and a massive invasion of people’s liberties that would yield no positive public-health outcome. He put together a new recommendation that was only for those who were sick to test – just as one might expect in normal life.

The regulations were reversed after a media frenzy lasting a week.

Birx admits that she did it:

This wasn’t the only bit of subterfuge I had to engage in. Immediately after the Atlas-influenced revised CDC testing guidance went up in late August, I contacted Bob Redfield…. Bob Redfield was contacted less than one week later. [Redfield]We had just completed the rewrite and we secretly published it. The emphasis was now on the testing of areas for silent spread. We knew it was risky, but we were hopeful that everyone at the White House wouldn’t be so busy fighting for their agendas to notice what Bob and our efforts. We weren’t being transparent with the powers that be in the White House.

Who covered for Birx as she disobeyed President Trump’s orders?

T]he guidance gambit was only the tip of the iceberg of my transgressions in my effort to subvert Scott Atlas’s dangerous positions. Ever since Vice President Pence told me to do what I needed to do, I’d engaged in very blunt conversations with the governors. I spoke the truth that some White House senior advisors weren’t willing to acknowledge. Censoring my reports and putting up guidance that negated the known solutions was only going to perpetuate Covid-19’s vicious circle. What I couldn’t sneak past the gatekeepers in my reports, I said in person.

This pigheaded, stupid, unwarranted hubris is something I sympathize with. Birx, however, descends into criminality. Birx forged and altered guidance from senior people, especially President Trump’s. If she didn’t support what she was being told to do, she had an obligation to challenge those instructions openly and transparently and then do what she was told to do. If she didn’t like those orders, she was obligated to resign. Every person who died alone in a hospital room, every business driven into bankruptcy, and every child who lost a year of education due to Birx’s actions should be a count on a felony indictment.

Two years ago, I did this interview with Susie Moore: PODCAST: Moore to the Point With Susie Moore – Ep. 5 – Conversation With Streiff on Elite Incompetence. There was a thesis that the world is ruled over by idiots. The people who claim to have the answers about the crises facing us, be they Ukraine, COVID, or climate change, are f***ing morons. This is a horrible twist of the DunningKruger Effect. The Dunning-Kruger Effect is defined as “a cognitive bias whereby people with limited knowledge or competence in a given intellectual or social domain greatly overestimate their own knowledge or competence in that domain relative to objective criteria or to the performance of their peers or of people in general.” Our elites claim to have knowledge and competence, but they don’t, and no one, other than guys like me, calls them out when they are shown to be incompetent morons. Also, I wrote the post: Our government made as many errors and mistakes about COVID than ours; we must have intent.

Birx serves as an eloquent reminder that these two things are true. Birx was a highly educated idiot with a sterling professional reputation mostly because she’d never been called on to do jack beyond mouthing theories. Birx has never managed an organisation that produced real results. Our elites committed stupid acts of deceit. Personally, I don’t believe those actions were necessarily science-based. They had a strong message of totalitarianism, I believe. The “public health crisis” was a stalking horse to replace legislatures with unelected bureaucrats and crush the First Amendment.

Last point. Anyone who still claims there is no such thing as the “Deep State,” should be laughed at. Throughout the Trump administration, we saw example after example of bureaucrats making their own rules and ignoring laws and orders they didn’t like. We’ve also seen the Deep State close ranks to defend members who were exposed. One lawyer inflicts himself on a FISA warrant to get probation and his license is restored. One FBI agent attempts a coup. He is then allowed to retire. An ex-intelligence official actively participated in an attempt to downgrade a president without any repercussions. Birx is able to write her own book detailing her duplicity, and it’s a sign of how far the Deep State can go.
