1) Twitter Files #FauciPharmaFiles

Last December, @elonmusk sent out his viral tweet about Fauci.

Fauci went on Fox News and said he had "no clue what [Elon] was talking about." Image
2) "A lot of people are spouting out a lot of things about me and Twitter," Fauci told @FoxNews. "I've never had a Twitter account. I don't intend on having a Twitter account, and I've had nothing to do with Twitter. So I don't know what they're talking about when they say that."
3) Fauci made similar claims, during multiple exchanges, in a 7-hour deposition, where he denied using Twitter or even knowing how to access a tweet. Image
4) But in an internal Twitter report in March 2021, the company revealed "Dr. Anthony Fauci did an account takeover for @WHOCOVIDResponse."
This runs contrary to Fauci's public statements and sworn deposition given on Nov 23, 2022. Image
5) According to this tweet, Fauci took over the White House COVID-19 Response account again, in April 2021. Image
6) Fauci was beloved by Twitter 1.0

Elon Musk tweeted last December that former employees had an internal Slack channel unironically called "Fauci Fan Club." (pssst, don't disagree w/ Fauci)
7) Attorney Angela Sherrer, who left when Musk sought to buy Twitter, praised Fauci as "the leading trusted voice about the COVID-19 response in the United States." Image
8) Angela Sherrer was no small fry at Twitter. According to a deposition by FBI agent Elvis Chan, Sherrer was one of the attorneys he interfaced with on "disinformation" at Twitter. Image
9) Twitter didn't just rely on the voices of prominent physicians like Fauci. Oddly enough, they also worked with Big Pharma companies and pharmacy chains to shape vaccine marketing campaigns.
10) In December 2020, Twitter announced they would begin removing and labelling tweets that contained vaccine "misinformation" especially concerning COVID-19 vaccines. Image
11) During that same time frame, Twitter began working with Johnson and Johnson on a COVID-19 vaccine "marketing strategy" and with CVS pharmacy to promote approved narratives. Image
12) By the summer of 2021, Johnson and Johnson began a full court press to market a ton of their products on Twitter, including a controversial antidepressant. Image
13) Much thanks to @TexasLindsay_ who helped collect and organise #TwitterFiles. We read and read, until our eyes bled.

More to come! Image
14) Harvard's @MartinKulldorff who is suing the federal government for colluding w/ social media companies on censorship "Twitter should be a place for people to exchange ideas without censoring."…
16) I had to make a slight change to article, noting that J&J was a Twitter *client* while Twitter was simultaneously calling balls & strikes on vaccine "misinformation."

A subtle yet important distinction.… Image

1) Announcing a Winner for the Dorit Reiss Vaccine Photo Contest!!!

I challenged readers to find anyone posting more photos of themselves getting jabbed than vaccine fanatic, Dorit Reiss. They found one. Image
2) I tripped across five photos @doritmi had posted of herself getting a vaccine and speculated she has likely posted more photos of herself getting vaccinated than anyone in the history of the Internet.

Well, I was wrong. Fanatics are everywhere. Image
3) A reader sent me 6 photos social media influencer @dr_andrealove posted of herself getting vaccinated.

You may be shocked to learn: Andrea Love has financial ties to the vaccine manufacturers. (truly shocking, no?) Image

1) A week Fauci was caught lying to NY Times, House investigators catch NIH lying to @statnews' @HelenBranswell & @ScienceMagazine's @jocelynkaiser about virus research.

Will #scicomm writers finally stop protecting NIH?

Let's see the documents!!!
2) @sciencemagazine first reported that NIH researcher Bernie Moss planned gain-of-function monkeypox experiments—swapping out genes from various variants—to understand why some are more dangerous or transmissible than others.
3) This article triggered a second Science Magazine story about Moss's dangerous research. The reporter then updated the article with NIAID claiming Moss's research involved clade 2a, not clade 2b monkeypox virus. Image

1) After @cochranecollab Karla Soares-Weiser threw scientists under the bus, she has backtracked on her mask review statement.

Soares-Weiser has still not explained her unprofessional collusion w/ @zeynep
2) On Friday, Soares Weiser quietly released a statement explaining that she would not be editing the Cochrane review on masks. Her prior March 2023 statement created a maelstrom of misinformation, including a spurious NY Times essay by social media influencer Zeynep Tufekci. Image
3) Tufekci's misleading essay kicked off a defamatory tweet by @Laurie_Garrett who accused the Cochrane scientists of being "bozos" to had confessed to "fraud." Image

1) WOW!

Tony Fauci's deputy, David Morens, admitted in a hearing he deleted government records and conspired with EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak to restore Daszak's grant.

At the hearing's end, Morens' lawyer whispered to him, "Tie your shoe."
2) Morens admitted that he edited a compliance letter Daszak sent to the NIH, edited an EcoHealth Alliance press release after NIH terminated Daszak’s grant, and “put in a word” to the EcoHealth Alliance board when Daszak was worried about being fired.
3) Morens also he would delete emails. Image

1) History has stopped. Nothing exists except the #COVID narrative—which is always right.

Tulane's John M. Barry printed "Masks Work" nonsense in the @nytopinion that contradicts history and his own book "The Great Influenza."
2) John Barry is author of the NY Times bestseller "The Great Influenza" in which he wrote masks were "useless" against influenza. Image
3) But in the NY Times, Barry wrote we know masks work since 1917.

So I did what @katiekings at the NY Times didn't do. I asked Barry where he got that fact. Barry emailed that it comes from a Dr. Joseph Capps JAMA article in 1918.

I found that article. Image

1) Science historian @equal_ibrium writes that Democrats laid into EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak for reckless virus research.

He then asks if the bureaucracy is trying to make Daszak the fall guy, because more are responsible, especially funders.
2) Democratic Ranking Member, Raul Ruiz, told Daszak in his closing statement. “It is important that you and your organization be held accountable.”
3) Also, why has UNC's Ralph Baric been so slient?

Emails and a deposition show he has been privately outraged about Daszak's BP on dangerous biosafety standards at the WIV and Baric admits a lab accident might have caused the pandemic. Image
