Deborah Birx Was Dr. Lockdown
The chief architect of America's insane COVID policy writes a tell-all book
Future historians will explore two important stories in the last year of the first Trump Administration for clues regarding the stolen 2020 election: the complete subversion of CISA under Christopher Krebs (and his best friend, DHS Secretary Chad Wolf), and the disastrous White House Coronavirus Task Force, chaired by the equally disastrous Vice President Mike Pence.
While Dr. Anthony Fauci grabs the lion’s share of attention on the task force, Dr. Deborah Birx has now written a self-serving book and thus, unintentionally of course, seized her portion of the blame.
To stir up interest in her new book, Dr. Birx has suddenly admitted publicly that COVID-19 is a “chimera” virus (bioweapon) developed (at least partially) at the Wuhan Lab.
In a remarkable book review, Jeffrey Tucker identifies Dr. Birx as the chief architect of the “lockdown” strategy that caused so much economic damage and personal misery in America in the last two years.
Dr. Birx credits herself as the person who convinced President Trump to adopt the “15 days to slow the spread” policy — which she admits was a ruse to buy time to make lockdowns more permanent.
Dr. Birx also admits to “hiding” data in the weekly reports to state health officials in order to encourage her “lockdowns and masking and mass testing” regime.
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.
Who empowered her to do this?
According to Dr. Birx, it was Mike Pence.
Not only was Mike Pence empowering Dr. Birx to lock down America, he was also empowering an intelligence operative with no medical experience named Olivia Troye to pretend to be a “COVID advisor” with a taste for experimental vaccine mandates.
When Dr. Scott Atlas was appointed to the White House Coronavirus Task Force, he quickly learned that Dr. Birx was the most delusional person in the room — and so he wondered (naturally) why she was in the room at all:
I also asked how she had been appointed—that seemed to be a bit of a mystery to everyone. I was told by Jared, more than once, “Dr. Birx is 100 percent MAGA!”—as if that should make all the other issues somehow less important. Secretary Azar denied appointing her during his stint running the Task Force. I was told by the VP’s chief of staff, Marc Short, that Pence “inherited her” when he took over as chair of the Task Force. No one seemed to know.
You simply must read Michael Senger’s review of Birx’s book too — there’s half a dozen key quotes and insights that can’t be covered here.
As for the long history of failure by our public health bureaucrats, there’s a fantastic article about CDC Director Robert Redfield when he was pushing an AIDS vaccine in the early 1990s. Who was Redfield’s research assistant at the time? Deborah Birx. Who defended his (alleged) manipulation of data to push his AIDS vaccine? Deborah Birx.
To pump her new book in the media, Dr. Birx made a remarkable statement about its contents: “In the book, I expose the true cost of mistakes that were made at all levels of the federal government, but I also clarify the things that went right yet remained largely unseen — the insights and innovations that saved American lives in this pandemic and are essential to preparing for the next.”
This is the quintessential bureaucratic statement: Dr. Birx admits that the federal government made huge mistakes, while neglecting to mention that she’s the one who made the huge mistakes.
No wonder her latest gig is a fellowship at the George W. Bush Institute.
I Need Your Support!
Who held the Biden Administration to account for its corruption every day like me?
Independent and fearless journalists need your support like never before.
I need your support like never before.
The corporate media is completely corrupt. Just go down the list: the Russia Hoax, the stolen 2020 election, the deadly COVID vaccines. The corporate media is actively trying to hide the truth from the American people on a daily basis.
If we are going to survive the current regime then we must stand together.
I’ve got your back.
