Fauci’s Mask Flip-Flop, Explained (by Economics)

“After all, the winning assumption in economics is that ordinary folk operating in markets are motivated predominately by self interest. Why should we assume politicians and bureaucrats are motivated any differently than anyone else?”


Last summer in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he had no regrets over advising Americans against wearing masks in public spaces early in the pandemic, even though his recommendations changed months later.

“I don’t regret anything I said then because in the context of the time in which I said it, it was correct,” said Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease advisor. “We were told in our task force meetings that we have a serious problem with the lack of PPEs and masks for the health providers who are putting themselves in harm’s way every day to take care of sick people.”

Fauci was referring to comments he made on 60 Minutes in March 2020. During that interview, Fauci said “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” noting they should be used only for sick people as source control

The Origin of Covid-19 — The Truth in 90 Quotes [QUOTE #6 : “Time to talk about lab safety.” — Dr Gregory D Koblentz & Dr Filippa Lentzos]

“Preventing the next pandemic should be a priority for all countries.”

Intel Today

“Barring some new, revelatory information, the Biden administration’s review of intelligence is unlikely to answer whether the virus came from a lab.”

Washington Post (June 15 2021)

June 07 2021 — The COVID pandemic has already claimed the lives of 3.5 million people worldwide and there is no end in sight to this global tragedy. Yet, nearly a year and a half since the first cases were detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the origin of the virus remains a mystery. On May 26 2021, President Joe Biden announced that he had tasked the US Intelligence Community to prepare a report on their most up-to-date analysis of the origins of COVID-19, including whether it emerged from human contact with an infected animal or from a laboratory accident. To be sure, there is no direct evidence of a lab-leak so far. But the Open Source Intelligence [OSINT] already available provides…

Jasper / The Tank Sisters.

Your stories, Joe, tell so much about Australian workmen’s culture in the glorious postwar years that lots of European migrants were confronted with. When I read these very well told stories I feel like watching some scenes from a very authentic movie! I hope, you don’t mind that I reblog it. I can only recommend these stories. They’re great fun to read! 🙂


Jasper was a “Balt’ ”..ie; he was of those states centered around the Baltic Sea..perhaps he could have been Estonian…he was a tall ponderous sort of chap…with a long serious gaze, with one of those what are called “lantern jawed” faces. He always spoke in a slow , carefully chosen word way..I don’t wonder many philosophers came from the Baltic States..Jasper appeared to put a lot of thought into what he said before he said it…but then he didn’t ever say much of great import.

“You gotta watch those ‘Balts’ “ Jack Mitchell warned..’Ooo..they’re trouble..those bloody Balts”.

He always wore shorts in the summer..not short shorts like a footballer, but loose baggy ones to the knee. He would sit at the bar pint in hand with legs crossed in a peculiar effeminate way..that is; with his legs entwined like women do…and he would stare incessantly at one person or spot…
