So, the other day Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green introduced legislation to “Fire Fauci and ban vaccine passports.” I quote the press release announcement below.
Fire Fauci Act will:
- Remind the American public that Dr. Fauci is the highest paid ($434,312) of all 4 million federal employees, including the President.
- Cite numerous findings about Dr. Fauci’s evolving and contradictory advice on COVID-19.
- Reduce Dr. Fauci’s salary to $0 until a new NIAID Administrator is confirmed by the Senate.
- Direct GAO to conduct a study about the correspondence, financials, and policy memos inside the NIAID before COVID through the end of this year. This will allow us to see what Fauci and the NIAID knew, when they knew it, what they spent money on, and how the agency responded to the virus.
This is VERY interesting to say the least because it underscores the distrust and disdain so many Americans have for Dr. Fauci. Why? Mostly because he flip flops a lot. (A lot.) Consider some of his greatest hits, courtesy of The Gateway Pundit [article date: April 30, 2020].
1) Dr. Fauci says he warned Trump in January that the US was in real trouble but that is not what he said publicly. In January 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci told Newsmax TV that the United States “did not have to worry” about the coronavirus and that it was “not a major threat.”
"This is not a major threat…"

2.) Dr. Fauci warned of an apocalyptic coronavirus pandemic — then just weeks later he later compared the coronavirus to a bad flu.
4.) On March 20th Dr. Fauci jumped in and “corrected” the president during a press briefing on hydroxychloroquine treatment for coronavirus saying, “You got to be careful when you say ‘fairly effective.’ It was never done in a clinical trial… It was given to individuals and felt that maybe it worked.”
Exactly two weeks later hydroxychloroquine was deemed the most highly rated treatment for the novel coronavirus in an international poll of more than 6,000 doctors.
5.) Dr. Fauci pushed these garbage models every step of the way.
Three weeks ago Dr. Fauci claimed 1 million to 2 million Americans would die from coronavirus. Then he said 100,000 to 200,000 Americans will die from the virus. Then last week he agreed 81,766 Americans would die from the coronavirus. Then by Wednesday the experts cut the number of deaths to 60,415 projected deaths.
6.) On Sunday Dr. Fauci said President Trump should have shut down the economy in February…That’s not what Dr. Fauci said ON FEBRUARY 29th!! (Below is a quote from a now deleted tweet.)
But in late February Fauci told the TODAY Show on February 29 that you don’t need to “change anything you’re doing.”
(And I will add to the list 2 more recent examples because they just popped in my head. Fauci admitted a few weeks ago that there was no science behind the continued lockdown and after pushing people to wear 2 masks, he flip flopped and said it really made no difference. This was especially ironic due to the fact that he initially said on 60 Minutes that masks were unnecessary to begin with. And to be fair, he was not the only one to flip flop numerous times on mask usage. But I digress.)
Dr. Fauci has been blasted constantly by political pundits who debunk his statements constantly. While none of them, to my knowledge, have a background in epidemiology, their logic seems sound in several cases. This RedState article – “One Chart Shows How Useless Dr. Fauci’s Advice Is” being one example.
Of course, Fauci’s expertise is highly debatable. Yes, he has the credentials, but credentials hardly make someone right when they start opining on things that may lack good answers. That’s never been more true than the coronavirus, where Fauci has flipped and flopped on numerous issues while being shown to be outright wrong on others. Despite his checkered record, he still chooses to target red states like Florida while celebrating dumpster fires like New York.
This morning, I stumbled across a chart that shows how truly useless Fauci’s “advice” is. Take a look. Why, it’s almost as if Fauci’s chosen prescriptions of lockdowns and mask-wearing (and until recently, closing schools) aren’t having the effect he said they’d have.
It’s been a while since I updated the chart of Florida, Fauci’s favorite target for criticism, vs. all the states that blindly follow his advice
Shockingly, nearly 3 months after he said Florida was “asking for trouble”, they’re still having the best results pic.twitter.com/f8yHPgRz1Z

“One of the problems we face in the United States is that unfortunately, there is a combination of an anti-science bias that people are — for reasons that sometimes are, you know, inconceivable and not understandable — they just don’t believe science and they don’t believe authority,” he said.
“That’s unfortunate because, you know, science is truth,” he said. “It’s amazing, sometimes, the denial there is.”
“I think the people who believe are people who understand and who have trust in someone who has a very, very long track record of always speaking the truth based on evidence,” he said, “and I’ve done that through six administrations.”
Maybe its me, but that comes off as a bit arrogant; as if his experience makes him the sole authority that can never be questioned. I do not fault his confidence. He certainly has the track record to be confident. However, to posture yourself as being beyond error is too much hubris. You can clearly see it, I think, in the feud Dr. Fauci has with Senator Rand Paul.
Senator Rand Paul has publicly challenged Dr. Fauci with medical research data that seems to irk Dr. Fauci. In one exchange, Paul said to Fauci in a Senate hearing:
“There’s virtually zero percent chance you’re going to get it and you’re telling people that have had the vaccine who have immunity — You’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated.”
Its important to note that Senator Paul is a medical doctor as well. You can watch them exchange quips in this video clip. Despite Senator Paul’s logic, Dr. Fauci has since doubled down on his position, even suggesting that the world needs to continue wearing masks until 2022 and that children should be wearing them in order to play together, even until they are all vaccinated from the age of 6 months. (HT: Summit News) This is why Senator Rand Paul trolls Dr. Fauci with science whenever possible. 2 examples:
paging Dr Fauci: please end the mask theater now that cdc admits evidence that the vaccinated do not carry the virus. https://t.co/ux2vcVHdnd

Dr. Fauci, great news! T cell immunity after natural infection shown to include variants. Do we still need to wear multiple masks after we’ve recovered or been vaccinated?https://t.co/sSsE66wJbs

And one more thing, as I get to my point because I do have one. The NY Post reported that 2,000 migrants entering the USA illegally were not tested for Covid. The Department of Homeland Security won’t test thousands of migrants either before releasing them into the USA. Texas Governor Greg Abbott sharply criticized the federal government, claiming an unknown number of migrants caught crossing the border illegally had been allowed to travel freely after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
And now, the point of all these facts.
- Dr. Fauci is well credentialed but, has been proven wrong with data on numerous occasions resulting in catastrophe to our society and economy.
- Dr. Fauci seems to refuse scientific research that goes contrary to his opinion and indeed, doubles down due to (presumably) ego.
- And now, with thousands upon thousands of immigrants surging our border with extremely high potential for Covid-19, he is silent on the public health ramifications. I assume to shield the missteps of the Biden Administration.
I think the “Fire Fauci” legislation by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is timely and sensible. I hope it is successful and that Fauci is replaced with someone who is as qualified (or better), someone who is willing to change his position based on new information and above all places public health above politics and ego.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
