Trump’s Biggest Blunder — Anthony Fauci

The fatal error that cost Trump a second term — and cost our nation irreparable damage.

“They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” —Benjamin Franklin (1759)

Our nation is now fully 18 months into the ChiCom Virus pandemic. With half the nation fully vaccinated and natural immunities building in the other half, just as things started returning to normal, infection rates are surging back toward record levels.

For a coronavirus to be surging in warm summer months is troubling, but the number of deaths is much lower now, despite the pandemic of fear being promoted by the feckless Joe Biden and his socialist Democrat Party cadres.

The key data point to consider moving forward is not infections, but hospitalizations and deaths. Those will increase, but if the vaccines actually work, the increase will only be fractional compared to the death-to-infection ratio last year.

Despite Biden’s dread and drama, the Delta variant fatality risk is very low for those who have been vaccinated or are immune.

The low fatality rate is two reasons. First, many of the 50% of Americans who are vaccinated were motivated to do so because they were at higher risk for a serious infection. Second, many who are not vaccinated have chosen to opt out because they are in groups that are at much lower risk of serious infection and death and are rapidly building natural immunities.

However, Biden, and his Chief Statist Power Freak, Anthony “Flip Flop” Fauci, have started pushing vaccination mandates and ordering the re-masking of America — including those who have already been vaccinated. This, despite evidence that masks are mostly ineffective barriers as viral deterrents. That has prompted even some of the most dullard of Biden’s constituents to ask, “If the vaccines work, why insist that inoculated people need to be masked?”

To the point of this column, how in the heck did a swamp-dwelling octogenarian, who is as non compos mentis as Biden, rise to become the most powerful bureaucratic czar in American history? Should anyone be listening to anything Fauci says — despite the fact that he’s the nation’s highest-paid bureaucrat at almost $420,000 per year?

Fact is, Fauci, who became director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in 1984, the position he has held for the last 37 years, is long past his cognitive expiration date.

How did our nation’s compass bearing on American Liberty get overwhelmed by Faucism? The answer, unfortunately, is that Donald Trump inadvertently paved Fauci’s path to power. Unfortunately, Fauci’s ascension to power became a key factor in Trump’s 2020 loss.

Singularly, the greatest irony of Trump’s presidency, and in large measure the reason he was defeated after one term, was his elevation of Fauci and his deference to the power he gave Fauci.

Despite the fact Trump amassed an extraordinary record of domestic and foreign policy achievements in the three years prior to the ChiCom Virus invasion, and despite the fact that Trump earned 11 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, he set Fauci up to accomplish what others had attempted to accomplish the previous three years — take Trump down.

Trump’s most obvious leadership “style” was that he was a bomb dropper. As I wrote shortly after he took office in 2017: “The day he arrived in DC, he dropped a bomb on the status quo in Congress and its special interests. He dropped a bomb on the regulatory behemoths and their bureaucratic bottlenecks. He dropped a bomb on the trade and national security institutions and alliances that failed miserably over the previous eight years. And he dropped a bomb on all the pundits and mainstream media outlets.”

In some notable respects, Trump suffered enormous injury to his agenda as a result of self inflicted wounds – not the least of which was his chaotic communication. Those reckless communications accelerated the metastasizing of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

From Day One, Trump was under threat from a deep-state coup to set him up for impeachment. It took more than two years before fully disabusing this charade based on completely fabricated evidence of “Russian collusion.” Of course, there were Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton fingerprints all over the FBI and CIA co-conspiracy to evict Trump.

They failed.

But the damage was done, and despite Trump’s extraordinary midterm record of achievements, his Republican trifecta was broken up when Democrats retook the House after the 2018 election.

Then there was “Coup d'État 2.0,” an effort by lunatic Demo Rep. Adam Schiff and his Demo Party leaders to impeach Trump for what Joe Biden actually did in Ukraine.

They failed.

But despite Trump’s objective to keep America great — and despite the fact he had carpet-bombed many of the Beltway obstacles to American greatness — when the ChiCom Virus pandemic invaded, Trump made a fatal error that cost him a second term, and has cost our nation irreparable damage.

Trump turned his agenda and virtually every facet of American life over to Anthony Fauci, then not a household name with 99.999% of Americans. Trump empowered Fauci, allowed him to drive the booming Trump economy into the ground, to grow national debt astronomically, and to weaken our national security. Ultimately, Trump became the poster child for Faucist misery.

Notably, it is no small irony that the greatest beneficiary of Faucism was, and is, America’s most lethal adversary, Red China. Ironic I note because Trump took on China trade issues, and it is no coincidence that in return, that government unleashed the ChiCom virus.

Last November, the resulting lockdown misery and mayhem, combined with the Demos’ bulk-mail ballot fraud election strategy that Fauci enabled and the massive Leftmedia and social media blackout of Biden’s ChiCom quid pro quo crime syndicate, resulted in Trump’s defeat.

The bantamweight bureaucrat set Trump up to achieve what all his other foes could not — boot him out of office.

Of all the powerful people Trump fired over his four years, he left Fauci in power. The fact that Trump did not fire Fauci in April of 2020, when it was discovered he had publicly and repeatedly lied to the American people about the efficacy of wearing masks, remains a mystery. At that time it was already clear that Fauci was not only contradicting Trump, but had become a media darling, popping up in the MSM everywhere, rather than speaking with one voice at press briefings. Trump should have fired Fauci and replaced him with someone younger, much more lucid and lacking a leftist political agenda.

Instead, and astoundingly, Trump even awarded a Presidential Commendation to Fauci as one of his last acts as president.

Not only did keeping Fauci in place help end Trump’s presidency, but Fauci continues to wreak havoc on our nation today, and poses an enormous threat to American Liberty. He and Biden ensured that “The Science” would be subordinated by the Demos’ power agenda, particular their vaxing mandate wrecking ball.
