Birx’s Book of Incriminating COVID Admissions
It’s a manual for how to leverage a crisis to subvert a government and bring down a president.
When it comes to COVID, the federal government got a lot wrong — this includes the disastrous appointment of Dr. Deborah Birx as White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator.
Birx served from the outset of the pandemic in March 2020 to the end of President Donald Trump’s term. If the appointment of Anthony Fauci turned out to be Trump’s worst decision, the Birx appointment wasn’t far behind.
Birx recently took the obligatory next step for a retiring public servant by publishing her own Washington tell-all of the pandemic and what it was like working for the Bad Orange Man. Silent Invasion: The Untold Story of the Trump Administration, Covid-19, and Preventing the Next Pandemic Before It’s Too Late hit bookstores in late April.
What, you missed it?
Leftist media naturally tripped over themselves giving wonderful reviews to this 521-page doorstop. The New York Times, Science magazine, CNN, and many others can’t find enough superlatives to explain the glory of this work. But a snippet from The Atlantic’s review actually rings true: “The most revealing pandemic book yet.”
Either because of arrogance or ignorance (maybe both), Birx reveals the true intentions behind the government’s handling of COVID. If anything, her book confirms that Washington used COVID as an opportunity to isolate and neutralize the population while seizing permanent control of state and local institutions. Don’t take our word for it. See for yourself.
Here’s Birx on instituting lockdowns:
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 campaigned to lock me down and shut me up.
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.
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.
Here’s Birx on how she doctored the data to confirm that social distancing, masks, and lockdowns were working:
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.
Birx also revealed the depth of her twisted machinations on ABC News during a softball appearance supporting her book launch. Speaking about Trump’s COVID task force team, Birx revealed how she strong-armed the administration into keeping the group together should Trump try to fire even one of them.
“I went to [Vice President Mike Pence] multiple times to call Bob [Redfield] and Steve [Hahn] because I was worried about them feeling like they were [at] risk. And I was very clear to the chief of staff that if anything happened to Bob or Steve, we would all leave.”
Collusion, anyone? Never mind that they served at the pleasure of the president, or that they were terrible at their jobs — terrible, that is, if their jobs were to protect the American people. If the goal was to put a deep-state stranglehold around the neck of the Republic, well, then, mission accomplished.
Birx’s public persona finally came undone near the end of 2020, when she was caught traveling for a big family Thanksgiving gathering while insisting that the rest of us rubes stay hidden away in our closets. Typical of her elitist “freedom for me but not for thee” attitude, Birx tried but failed to defend her actions.
It’s hard to know if Silent Invasion is selling a lot of copies. Honest numbers are hard to come by. The New York Times has been cooking its bestseller books for years, playing up favorable titles that no one is buying and burying the hot sellers that don’t advance the leftist narrative. But a look around the Internet finds a lot of sites already selling the book at steep discount prices. This sort of fire sale is usually an indicator that the people aren’t buying what the publisher is selling.
Hopefully, Birx’s book will be interpreted for what it is: a manual for how to leverage a crisis to subvert a government and bring down a president. Outside of that, we highly recommend against buying this book. After all, $29.99 is way too much to pay for kindling.
