Maybe now that Dr. Tony Fauci has begun to spill the beans on his doings in service to the Wuhan virology lab...

In a sane polity, Dr. Fauci would be cooked. He looks circumstantially like an epic villain of history, who promoted and funded dangerous research activities knowingly, which led to an international disaster that killed millions of people and destroyed countless livelihoods and households, perhaps even the whole global economy, when all is said and done — and he appears to have lied at every step along the way.

... Dr. Fauci has come to represent not just the falsehoods employed around the Covid-19 fiasco but more generally the long campaign against truth itself by a grossly illiberal Jacobin Democratic Party seemingly out to punish and destroy Western Civ....

The downfall of Dr. Fauci is a watershed moment. There were so many more authorities caught lying over the past five years, but who got off scot-free — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey (actually, the whole FBI and DOJ E-suites), John Brennan, James Clapper, Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissman, Adam Schiff, and the editors and producers of the news media, plus the execs of social media — who not only disabled the truth at every opportunity, but just about destroyed the public’s grip on reality....

The result has been an utter collapse of authority in this land, so that now nobody who runs anything is credible...

Just remember: there is still a sizable faction in America of people who are deeply interested in ascertaining the truth about a lot of things. They are aiming to get at it, too, for example, the truth about the 2020 election. Maybe now you can begin to see why this is important....

"Joe Biden" (his handlers and their factotums, anyway) may try something else, another ruse to distract the public’s attention from a constitutional crisis: how about crashing the financial markets? That would do the trick, I’m sure....

... a recycled quote from old Clintonite Rahm Emanuel who was Obama’s chief of staff. He too bragged of the 2008 panic that would empower the Obama transformation project: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” 

Later Emanuel clarified that crises allow radical changes that were before never even considered—or considered impossible. Without catastrophe, no one in his right mind would vote for far-Left agendas. ...

The End of the Wuhan Scamarama, by Clarice Feldman, American Thinker, June 6, 2021:

As good an analysis of what we do see in the emails as any comes from the Washington Free Beacon, which shows that he [Fauci] went from flippancy about the virus to hair on fire alarmist in a short period to time....

His alarmism, downplaying of the likelihood and efficacy of a vaccine and of remedial therapies like HCQ and Ivermectin, which proved very effective, cost him any credibility in my eyes long ago. Not to speak of his weird decision that social distancing was not required in such things as sexual hookups you arrange online with strangers or anti-Trump political rallies. Before the emails were public, we saw him falsely deny his role in funding gain of function research in Wuhan. If after all this, you thought he was “following the science” or a credible arbiter of public health measures, you were foolish....
