Medical Doctor and former Texas Congressman Ron Paul called for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci Thursday morning on his Liberty Report podcast, telling listeners that Fauci a “fraud.”
“Even the bad guys are admitting it, and that is they made these dire predictions so that they could go ahead and destroy peoples’ civil liberties and spend a lot of money and make up an excuse on why the stock market actually went down – all kinds of things by having this coronavirus event blown way out of proportion,” Dr. Paul told his co-host, Daniel McAdams.
Paul’s remarks came after Fauci’s most recent appearance on NBC’s Today Show, where he announced a further slash to American death toll projections from 240,000 to 60,000. The 60,000 figure stands in stark contrast to the doomsday predictions once shouted from the rooftops of up to 2 million dead by the Fourth of July holiday.
Paul further warned that enemies of civil liberty have used the coronavirus outbreak to set a dangerous precedent for future events.
“It’s an excuse to have total control over the people,” Paul said.
Paul’s concerns for the future were bolstered the next day, as Fauci told CNN that coronavirus immunity cards are “being discussed.”
“It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not,” Fauci said. “This is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit, under certain circumstances.”
Fauci’s hopes for immunity cards seem to echo a program recently rolled out in Communist China, where citizens are being forced to use a color-coded system programmed into their smartphones indicating their contagion risk-level.
Under the Chinese model – synchronized into the Alipay wallet app which citizens are mandated to download – people displaying a green QR code are permitted to travel freely, while those displaying a yellow code may be refused entry to a number of public spaces, including modes of transportation.
Citizens displaying a red code may be forced into quarantine by police, who are able to monitor citizens’ movement and health data via the app.
While the app is currently in use in hundreds of Chinese cities, the CCP and the app’s developers, Ant, say they are preparing for a nationwide rollout.
