Sen. Ted Cruz: Fauci is ‘the most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of America,’ has ‘delusions of grandeur’


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz leveled barbs at Tony Fauci on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Monday, November 29, calling the NIAID director and COVID czar “the most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of America.”

Hannity and Cruz discussed Fauci’s recent appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation with Margaret Brennan, in which Fauci addressed criticisms on how he has handled the COVID-19 pandemic.


In the interview, Fauci stated that he “represent[s] science,” saying:

“I mean, anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this. So if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about. 

“But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well, people could recognize there’s a person there. There’s a face, there’s a voice you can recognize, you see him on television. 

“So it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”

Fauci proceeded by continuing to assert that criticisms of him are criticisms of science, saying:

“That’s dangerous. To me, that’s more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown at me. I’m not going to be around here forever, but science is going to be here forever. 

“And if you damage science, you are doing something very detrimental to society long after I leave. And that’s what I worry about.”

On Hannity’s show, Cruz responded to these assertions by saying:

“Dr. Fauci, I think, is the most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of the country.”

Cruz continued:

“He talks … about hurting science.  

“I don’t think anyone has hurt science, has hurt the credibility of the CDC, hurt the credibility of doctors more than Dr. Fauci, because throughout this pandemic, he’s been dishonest, he’s been political, he’s been partisan, and the American people know it.”

Cruz added:

“He gave this long interview, where he said, ‘I represent science.  I am science!’

“I gotta admit, Sean, I was laughing.

“It’s like Louis XIV, the Sun King in France, saying ‘L’etat c’est moi,’ ‘I am the state.’

“It is this delusion of grandeur, that you cannot criticize him.”

The Senator also criticized Fauci for dismissing concerns over Fauci’s involvement in gain-of-function research and his lying to Congress over that matter.

According to the interview transcript, the following conversation occurred between Brennan and Fauci:

MARGARET BRENNAN: Senator Cruz told the attorney general you should be prosecuted. 

DR. FAUCI: Yeah. I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, senator?

MARGARET BRENNAN: Do you think that this is about making you a scapegoat to deflect—

DR. FAUCI: Of course-

MARGARET BRENNAN: –From President Trump?

DR. FAUCI: Of course, you have to be asleep not to figure that one out.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, there are a lot of Republican senators taking aim at this. I mean—

DR. FAUCI: That’s OK, I’m just going to do my job and I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying.

Cruz commented on this exchange:

“You know, in the course of that interview, he was asked about [how] I asked Attorney General Merrick Garland if he’s going to investigate and prosecute Dr. Fauci for lying to Congress.

“And Margaret Brennan asked him about that, and what did Fauci do?

“He didn’t discuss any of the substance.  Instead, he just attacked and engaged in ad hominem attacks.

“He basically did the Beavis and Butthead defense.  He just screamed ‘liars’ at everything.”

Doubling down, Cruz continued:

“You know, facts are stubborn things, Sean, and so here are the simple facts that Fauci needs to explain and the Department of Justice should investigate.”

Cruz summarized how Fauci, in a “clear, categorical statement” on May 11, 2021, testified before a Senate committee that the NIH has never conducted gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, yet on October 20, the NIH declared that they had indeed conducted such research at the Wuhan lab.

Cruz went on to tell Hannity:

“At the end of the day, 18USC, Section 1001, makes it a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison, for lying to Congress….

“I think Margaret Brennan is a talented journalist, but she dropped the ball in not following up, letting him just respond with insults….

“The reason this matters is, there is a lot of circumstantial evidence to suggest that the U.S. Government participated in funding research modifying coronaviruses that could have led to COVID-19, and if that’s true, that is stunning and indefensible.

“We know the Chinese government has enormous culpability, but there’s a real possibility that the American government under Dr. Fauci does as well, and that’s what he doesn’t want to address.”

Op-Ed: It took Fauci apparently conducting horrific “research” on animals to finally wake people up

Originally published October 25, 2021

EDITOR’S NOTE: This editorial contains disturbing information about animal testing.

GATES OF HELL — The evil spirit of SS physician Josef Mengele lives on in people such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, who appears to devalue the lives of people and animals in the name of “science.”

Fauci, who seems to disregard the principles of the Hippocratic Oath, is connected to disturbing and inhumane scientific “research” that looks more like cruelty and abuse.

Last week, it was confirmed that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded gain-of-function research on the coronavirus despite Fauci testifying earlier this year in May that it did not.

Gain-of-function research was performed to enhance — not diminish — deadly viruses at a laboratory located in enemy territory at Wuhan, China.

How does this help humanity?

The research is defined by the Department of Health and Human Services as a method “that improves the ability of a pathogen to cause disease” to “enable assessment of the pandemic potential of emerging infectious agents.” It warns these studies “may entail biosafety and biosecurity risks.”

Richard Ebright, a professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, told the Washington Examiner that the recent letter in which the NIH conceded that the group run by Peter Daszak violated its rules when conducting bat coronavirus research is a “bombshell” admission.

According to Ebright, the letter “corrects the untruthful assertions” by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci and his boss, NIH Director Francis Collins, both of whom claim the NIH did not fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

Collins and Fauci say they don’t fully know what goes on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but they have been adamant in claiming the NIH did not fund gain-of-function research at the facility.

Nicholas Wade, who spent three decades as a science writer for the New York Times, wrote an article for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in early May in which he wrote:

“It’s documented that researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were doing gain-of-function experiments designed to make coronaviruses infect human cells and humanized mice. This is exactly the kind of experiment from which a SARS2-like virus could have emerged.”

“Collins and Fauci lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public,” Ebright said. “Knowingly, willfully, and brazenly.”

Ebright also told the Washington Examiner:

“EcoHealth and its Wuhan partner constructed novel chimeric SARS-related coronaviruses — artificial, lab-generated viruses that do not have counterparts circulating in nature — that exhibited 10,000 times enhanced viral load and two to four times enhanced pathogenicity in infection studies in mice engineered to display human receptors on their cells (‘humanized mice’).”

Washington Examiner reported that NIH stated:

“EcoHealth failed to report this finding right away, as was required by the terms of the grant. EcoHealth is being notified that they have five days from today to submit to NIH any and all unpublished data from the experiments and work conducted under this award.”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said in a recent interview that Fauci, the top disease specialist in the U.S., should be fired:

“He should be fired, just for lack of judgment if nothing else.”

Paul was interviewed by Axios and mentioned a letter from the NIH to Ranking Member Rep. James Comer (R-KY) that admitted to a “limited experiment” conducted in order to test if “spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model,” which critics said contradict Fauci’s long-held claim.

Now that Fauci appears to have been caught in a lie, he is currently under fire for his alleged involvement in gruesome, taxpayer-funded animal experimentation at domestic and overseas laboratories.

The nonprofit organization White Coat Waste Project has accused the director of the NIAID of funding a project that had 6-8-month-old beagle puppies infected with disease-causing parasites in order to test an experimental drug.

The NIAID, the division of the NIH run by Fauci, allegedly funded the horrific experiment overseas in the North African country of Tunisia.

Lab technicians allegedly placed the heads of sedated beagle puppies in mesh cages and allowed vicious sand flies to eat the sweet dogs alive.

Some of the dogs allegedly had their vocal cords removed so employees would not hear the howling cries of the helpless puppies as their faces were eaten off.

Apparently no one wanted to hear the screams of innocent victims, so the puppies were silenced during their torture so that the barbaric experiments could proceed under quieter conditions.

Indeed, sometimes silence is violence.

Any beagle owner will tell you that this breed is one of the most loving and kindest ones around. It is also a very docile breed, which unfortunately makes it a prime dog to be selected for cruel animal experimentation.

Now, legislators want Fauci to explain the alleged abuse of as many as 44 puppies in overseas laboratories.

The Hill reports that a bipartisan group of 24 House Representatives has written a letter demanding that Fauci answer the claims made by White Coat Waste Project.

The lawmakers, led by Republican Representative Nancy Mace of South Carolina’s 1st congressional district, wrote to Fauci on Oct. 21 with a number of questions about the experiments that they want to be answered by Nov. 19.

The letter was also signed by some Democrats, such as Representatives Cindy Axne from Iowa and Jimmy Gomez from California.

Referring to White Coat Waste Project and various media reports, the members of the House wrote:

“From October 2018 until February 2019, NIAID spent $1.68 million in taxpayer funds on drug tests involving 44 beagle puppies.

“The dogs were all between six and eight months old. The commissioned tests involved injecting and force-feeding the puppies an experimental drug for several weeks, before killing and dissecting them.

“Of particular concern is the fact that the invoice to NIAID included a line item for ‘cordectomy.’ As you are likely aware, a cordectomy, also known as ‘devocalization,’ involves slitting a dog’s vocal cords in order to prevent them from barking, howling, or crying.

“This cruel procedure — which is opposed with rare exceptions by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, and others — seems to have been performed so that experimenters would not have to listen to the pained cries of the beagle puppies. This is a reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds.”

White Coat Waste Project confirmed to The Hill:

“Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sandflies so that the insects could eat them alive.

“They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies.”

NIAID and Fauci have yet to comment publicly regarding the puppy experiments in North Africa.

The White Coat Waste Project said documents it obtained also showed NIAID had directed $424,455 to the University of Georgia in September 2020 to infect 28 beagles with disease-causing parasites.

While White Coat Waste Project told Newsweek it didn’t know if Fauci had personally ordered the experiment, “it was ordered by his NIH division.”

Newsweek reported that documents that White Coat Waste Project obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) found that the animals were to be allowed to develop infections for three months before being euthanized for blood collection.

The documents said the animals “vocalized in pain” during the experiments. The story, which was also reported by Fox News, was based on redacted documents that outlined a study starting on Nov. 12, 2020 in which the beagles were to be euthanized after 196 days.

In a statement to Newsweek, the White Coat Waste Project said that the experiments were related to treatment for a tropical disease called lymphatic filariasis and that tests had already been conducted on other animals.

Greg Trevor, associate vice president for marketing and communications at the University of Georgia, sent an emailed statement to Newsweek in which he said the research was for a potential vaccine, developed at another institution, that would protect against a disease affecting 120 million people.

He said in an emailed statement that under federal rules, a vaccine must be tested in two animal species before it can be cleared for human clinical trials. When NIAID decided to fund this research, the agency determined that the research needed to be conducted on a dog model:

“According to researchers at the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, beagles are the standard dog model used in this type of research.”

Leighton Woodhouse wrote Fauci has been testing on animals for nearly 40 years:

“In the 1980s, he infected chimps with HIV in his quest for a vaccine that still doesn’t exist. When that approach failed, he proposed moving on to other animals.

“As recently as 2016, he was still touting the likelihood of a new HIV vaccine based on animal studies.”

Woodhouse also wrote that the latest experiments involving beagles are just a few of the countless tests done on animals via funding of the NIH and NIAID:

“Estimates of the number of animals experimented on each year in the United States range from the tens of millions to over 100 million, most of them paid for with taxpayer money.

“The White Coat Waste Project, a non-profit that advocates against federal animal testing, says that more than 1,100 dogs are experimented on in federal labs annually.

“For the amount of money and the amount of suffering entailed, little is produced. Much of it is pointless to begin with, but even the experiments that purport to measure the safety and efficacy of drugs are all but useless.”

Citing the NIH’s own words, Woodhouse points out the failure rate is a staggering 90 percent:

“Approximately 30 percent of promising medications have failed in human clinical trials because they are found to be toxic despite promising preclinical studies in animal models. About 60 percent of candidate drugs fail due to lack of efficacy.”

Woodhouse wrote:

“Most of that failure is due to the fundamental differences between human physiology and the physiologies of mice, or rabbits, or dogs. But even between animals with much closer physiologies, the predictive power of animal tests is unimpressive.

“Between mice and rats, there’s only a 60 percent chance you’ll get the same result. And when you repeat experiments on the same species, only 4 out of 5 times is the result the same — and closer to 2 out of 3 times with toxic substances.

“And yet the tests continue unabated, for three reasons: institutional inertia, NIH Director Francis Collins, and Anthony Fauci.”

Woodhouse also reported on other NIH experiments:

  • “Beagles were infected with pneumonia in order to induce septic shock and ‘experimental massive acute hemorrhage,’ then given blood transfusions. ‘After 96 hours, animals still alive were considered survivors and were euthanized.’ 
  • “Beagles were infected with anthrax in order to test a vaccine that was already FDA approved.
  • “‘Mongrel dogs’ were subjected to induced heart attacks, scanned by MRI, then killed and dissected.
  • “Pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and monkeys were subjected to agonizing pain without anesthesia. These included infecting pigs with a virus that causes ‘acute respiratory stress, hemorrhagic manifestations, paralysis’ and other symptoms; injecting rabbits with bacteria that create severe skin infections and ear lesions and usually death within twelve hours; infecting guinea pigs with a virus that causes ‘multi-organ failure’ and death, as well as ‘hind limb paralysis or prolapsed rectum’; and infecting monkeys with Ebola and tuberculosis, the latter of which produces symptoms including ‘rapid breathing, weight loss,’ and ‘inability to drink.’
  • “Monkeys had parts of their brains destroyed with acid in order to increase their capacity for terror, and were then tormented with simulated spiders, snakes and other things they instinctively fear. These experiments have been ongoing for more than four decades.”

Dr. Thomas Hartung, a toxicologist who directs Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, told Woodhouse:

“Knowledge in the life sciences doubles every seven years. We have about 1,000 times more knowledge now than at the time we designed animal tests.”

Can technology replace animal testing? Woodhouse says yes:

“Today, scientists can create ‘mini-brains’ to investigate whether and how SARS-CoV-2 affects brain cells.

“Machine learning software can outperform animal tests in predicting the toxicity of tens of thousands of chemicals in humans. ‘Organs-on-chips’ technology uses tissue derived from stem cells to create simulated organs on a slide the size of a USB stick, which can be combined to create simulations of the entire human body.

“In the near future, AI will likely be able to extrapolate from these simulations to model an entire patient population. That technology could supplant the entire animal trial stage of the drug development process, with results that actually tell you something.”

A technology-infused society filled with sinister scientists does not bode well for our future.

With trepidation, I look forward to hearing Dr. Fauci’s answers regarding the use of beagles for research sometime next month.

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
