Birx Book: Lies, Deceit, And Altered Data

Deborah Birx wrote a book about her pandemic response work. In it she admits to multiple lies and altering data ‘for the public good.’

Now, her book was published in April, but is only now coming to everyone’s attention. Several folks have reviewed it and let’s just say there are some jaw-dropping passages in it. 

First, Birx wants us to believe it was purely by chance that she saw that BBC story in January 2020 but just KNEW all of this was going to be bad. 

Secondly, the Wuhan lab leak was real and the virus ‘came out of the box’ ready to infect. 

Infectious diseases expert and former presidential Covid adviser Dr Deborah Birx told The Mail on Sunday that coronavirus ‘came out of the box ready to infect’ when it emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2020.

The adviser said most viruses take months or years to become highly infectious to humans. But, Dr Birx said, Covid ‘was already more infectious than flu when it first arrived’.

She said that meant Covid was either an ‘abnormal thing of nature’ or that Chinese scientists were ‘working on coronavirus vaccines’ and became infected.

‘It happens, labs aren’t perfect, people aren’t perfect, we make mistakes and there can be contamination,’ she said.

Wait a minute! Let’s take a look … anyone and I mean anyone in 2020 who dared suggest that this virus came from a lab leak in Wuhan was not only shouted down, but some lost their jobs. We were told by all the “experts” including Birx herself that this wasn’t a lab leak, it was a virus that had been brewing for quite some time. 

Supposedly Birx was an expert, which is why she was such a visible presence with Fauci during all of 2020. Except that her expertise was as an academic researcher on AIDS. Expertise with actual infectious airborne diseases and viruses such as the Covid flu virus? Not hardly. Instead she was the architect of the lockdowns that destroyed economies and lives. 

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. Fifteen Days to Slow the Spread was a start, but I knew it would be just that. 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. However hard it had been to get the fifteen-day shutdown approved, getting another one would be more difficult by many orders of magnitude.

According to the reviewers, Birx never explains any data as to why lockdowns were warranted. Which leads me to presume she made it all up.

Birx had a great inner circle of people helping push the lockdown fear-mongering narrative. And that included members of the media. The New York Times believes Birx is the greatest thing since sliced bread and uncritically looks at her book through a Walter Duranty lens

Instead, she began a series of low-profile trips outside the Beltway, flying into various states with her trusted data maven Irum Zaidi, renting a car (evidently) to make connections and dropping in on governors, universities, public health officials and local media outlets, from Arizona to Florida to New Hampshire; eventually she visited 44 states. During these visits, she sounded three themes repeatedly, as she sounds them over and over again in this book: the need for more Covid testing, especially “sentinel testing” of young people reporting no symptoms, who nonetheless could be infected and transmitting the virus among their families and communities; more masking by everybody; and more social distancing, especially by avoidance of large indoor gatherings.

These three basic forms of intervention, Birx argued tirelessly — first in the White House, then on her road trips and as she continues to argue now, amid the Omicron phase of the pandemic — are essential, though not sufficient, defenses against a virus as insidious as this one. To presume that vaccines have now solved the problem totally is a mistake, she stresses, because of the lingering unknowns (how long will vaccine-induced immunity last? how many humans will remain unvaccinated? what fresh hell might new variants bring?) and the formidable capacity of this virus to change and adapt. Her three cornerstone measures — the continued sentinel testing, plus the resumption of masking and the avoidance of indoor gatherings whenever surges return — will remain necessary, she warns, so long as the virus remains capable of that one nefarious trick: transmission from asymptomatic but infected people. In plainer words, silent spread. That’s the silent invasion of her title.

In other words, Deborah Birx wants the world locked down and isolated forever because you never know which person around you may be carrying Covid. How ASININE! Then again, there are far too many adults who know better, yet they blather on about getting this and push for masks even though they’ve been vaccinated quadruple times!

If there’s one of many things that the Covid mess has shown us, it is that far too many adults lack any critical thinking skills, or they just threw all that out the window and would rather operate in fear-mode for the rest of their lives. 

According to Birx, she was right on everything, Trump was awful, and Scot Atlas was wrong on everything, except he was proven correct on damned near all of it including going against Birx’s push to move people from hospitals to nursing homes. As for data? She KNOWS DATA. 

Needless to say, Jake Tapper didn’t read her book. Otherwise he would’ve found THIS passage. 

Birx ADMITS to changing data in her book. She admits in her book that the fifteen days and 10-person limit was arbitrary and had zero statistical backing.

Birx is just as evil as Fauci, Collins, and Redfield in this. They all knew they were making shit up, and lives were forever changed as a result. 

The key takeaway on this? Never ever EVER trust government “experts” ever again.
