    America is not the nation it say it is. You are seeing an incompetent nation from politics to the healthcare to the sientists. Your seeing the effects of people put in position by bribes or simply because mom and dad knows someone at the top, and now when it's time for the real deal no one have the minimal idea of what they are up against or even know how to tackle the situation. The incompetence unveiled, the curroption unveiled, the bribery unvieled. Doctors buying their deplomas. Politicians positioned by Moms best friend or Dads buddy. America is nothing but a front. A nation runned by fools is a damned nation indeed. We the people? What people, better said " We the corporations". America is not a country! America is a social experiment gone Wrong!!!!

    One of the annoying thing about the Covid and politics is that Republicans use Dr Fauci to assert that Pres. Trump is not at fault at Rose Garden event, while Democrats use Dr Fauci to discredit the President. Media SHOULD ask Dr Fauci about Rose Garden event. Is it the distancing issue, despite outdoors, or mask issue?

    A face mask is the best vaccine against COVID-19.
    by…..
    Professor Amon Leelasamee, M.D., President of the Medical Association of Thailand

    As there is news that Thailand will have a vaccine against COVID-19 in late 2020, causing many people to worry that Thailand will not survive the second wave of COVID-19
    During this period before the end of next year Let me learn the fact that Now Thais have been using the vaccine against COVID-19. That is very effective and safe from various side effects anyway. That is, wearing a mask every time when going to a public gathering or in a crowded and poorly ventilated place. This is because wearing a mask is a barrier to prevent the COVID-19 virus.
    Into our nostrils and mouths Please do not wear a mask below the nostril. If you wear tight, you can prevent disease. If there is a mistake to get the infection in his sinuses The number of infection is very small. This small number of germs will cause disease. But will not show any symptoms Or only a little You will not be seriously ill. Definitely not fatal But will have an immune system Make us immune to spontaneously without having to get vaccinated If you fail to get infected while wearing a sanitary mask elsewhere, your immune system is stimulated to rise even higher and this naturally occurs. This is different from not wearing a mask, in which when the infection gets the full load into the lungs and is at risk of becoming seriously ill. Because the body did not build the immune system in time Many viruses also destroy many of our cells. And the fight against many viruses that the body immediately gets into the respiratory tract. The body releases cytokine storms. Cytokine storms are substances released by immune cells to fight large amounts of disease. But released too much to destroy their own cells as well Both of these mechanisms cause extensive damage to the lungs and deform the oxygen exchange function. Therefore, Thai people have to wear masks
    Health when entering a community that we do not know Because if they fail to get the infection, they will receive very small numbers and not become seriously ill. Moreover, the immunity is also born. Therefore, a face mask is the best vaccine against COVID-19 because the price of a face mask is cheaper than the vaccine expected to fall about 500 to 1,000 baht. (31.4THB = one USD) Thai masks are now common. Cloth mask is fine. You don't need to inject, you can get immunity or get sick And does not cause side effects from the vaccine, such as pain, swelling, redness, heat at the vaccination site or having a fever, etc.
    The more you wear a mask and keep your social distance, I confirm that you are using a vaccine against COVID-19. The best in the world You don't have to wait for the vaccine to be injected in the next year. Hurry and use the best vaccine today, according to the indications. And stop worrying that there will be no vaccine available or there will be a second wave of outbreaks. The Prime Minister did not have to compete for the vaccine for sore throat or being exhausted.
    Selling expensive, do not buy. Waiting for Thai people to produce by themselves, still ready to use
    ( Remark: for your info:: Thai citizen wearing face marks in.public 99% of total 70,000,000 people, this no need to has eyes protection because all super spreaders are MOUTH blocking with mouth masks, )………..

    Video title is misleading clickbait, and considering the disclaimer type explainer (0:25) it would appear that it was by design; and the purpose was to drive a larger more permanent wedge between Dr Fauci and the Trump Administration.

    I think it's clear Dr Fauci has no great love for Trump however he does want to serve his country with distinction in this most trying tim, please allow him to do so without exploiting their differences in opinion, position, or execution of policy.

    Common sense clearly indicates that with well over 212,000 Americans DEAD and 7.58 MILLION infected in the US, and 34 within Trump's OWN WHITE HOUSE, because of Trump's careless indifference and downright LYING concerning the COVID 19 pandemic crisis in our nation, FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL GAIN, Trump HAS PROVEN that he OBVIOUSLY CANNOT BE TRUSTED to honestly and effectively lead our nation through this tragic and deadly pandemic. DUH! Voting for Trump is LITERALLY THE EQUIVALENT of POTENTIALLY VOTING FOR YOUR OWN DEATH, THE DEATH OF YOUR LOVED ONES, YOUR NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS, AND THE DEATHS OF MANY, MANY MORE OUR FELLOW AMERICAN CITIZENS!

    The-return-to-normal-after-planneddemic chinese covid-19 solution …..  is to jail this college dropout, mad, fake scientist billy eugenicist vaccine pusher gates in a labour camp chinese style

    The US senate is not even aware, they have a traitor in their midst

    Fauci who coocked up/weaponized the covid-19 virus in wuhan  china:

    After the oktober 2014 US ban on 
    monster-germ research (under which Corona-bat-virus research (which is manipulation: to make the virus more deadly and infectious) for reasons deemed too dangerous and a too high risk for a pandemic.
    (moratorium on GOF in 2014)

    Fauci illegaly outsourced/subsidized to the tune of  3.7 million dollar this
    monster-germ research (under which Corona-bat-virus research) to the Wuhan
    Institute of Virology 'biosafety' level 4 in china.(2015)

    This Fauci, bud boy of mad pseudo scientist Bill Gates, having received from college drop out billy boy grants to the tune of 100 of millions of dollars is now giving advise on how to handle this virus crisis.

    What a hypocrit….telling years in advance under Obama that the next administration (i.e. the Trump administration) would be faced with a pandemic .

    ps: puppet master, eugenicist bill gates  patented Zika (weaponized mosquitoes with it), covid-19 and other virusses.
    And since Ebola and  HIV are also patented, that makes that all these virusses are  ……man-made

    ps: contact tracing business …same usual suspects  …..clintons/soros/gates etc.:

    Federal Government and Yale Are Holding Clinical Trials on

    How Best to 'Persuade' Americans to Take COVID-19 Vaccines

    The options they are studying include shame and anger techniques:

        Other: Control message
        Other: Baseline message
        Other: Personal freedom message
        Other: Economic freedom message
        Other: Self-interest message
        Other: Community interest message
        Other: Economic benefit message
        Other: Guilt message
        Other: Embarrassment message
        Other: Anger message
        Other: Trust in science message
        Other: Not bravery message

        This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available.

     We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine
    -at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available  (intervention & control)

        Study participants are recruited online by Lucid, which matches census based sampling in online recruitment.

    The government website even describes how to guilt someone into taking the vaccine.
    —-

        1/15 of the people will be assigned to this message.
    The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and society must work together to get enough people vaccinated.

    Then it asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease.

    And here is how they convince someone on the “trust in science” subgroup.

        1/15 of the people will be assigned to this message about how getting vaccinated again

    Lets be honest here . Covid is being used as a skeleton key . Its used to lock and unlock on any desired agenda. Its magic- like a wand? Like a volume switch turn it up or down , turn it up and waive the wand and things just disappear, toilet paper, food, jobs , money even entire people and somehow makes everyones face disappear . . and the media whisper in our ear as we sleep only to wake and then believe the vivid dream .

    China is a brutal authoritarian communist dictatorship with a dictator. Xi JingPing, the next Mao Zedong. China is trying to spin propaganda that it isn’t. No one believes it. Except the Democrats leadership who are China’s puppets, who have been paid off. Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Pelosi, Harris, Schumer, Schiff and Sanders will sell the USA to China. Remember COVID-19 came from China 🇨🇳 🦠🧪
