Did Dr. Fauci Selectively Mislead People to Manipulate Behavior About COVID-19?

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio wrote in a Fox News opinion piece, published Dec. 30, 2020: "Thanks to our news media's monomaniacal obsession with President Trump, few have paid attention to an important interview that Dr. Anthony Fauci gave, in which he acknowledged that he selectively lied to the American public about the coronavirus and what was needed for our national recovery.

"I am sure that Dr. Fauci—the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases—made the decision to mislead with nothing but good intentions. However, let's be clear about what he was doing: lying to the American people in order to manipulate their behavior.

California Orders Insurance Companies to Pay for Teens to Have Mastectomies for Gender Transition

"Social stigma, misconceptions about gender dysphoria and its treatment, and outdated medical criteria create barriers to necessary medical care that can lead to tragic results for individuals with gender dysphoria, especially for our transgender youth."

Excuse Me, Congressman Cleaver, Brahma Is Not the 'Monotheistic God'

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., claims to be a United Methodist pastor, though credentials from a religious organization do not make someone a pastor—only the calling of God can impart that status.

I am awestruck. I cannot believe that anyone professing to be a Christian would pray such a heretical and abominable prayer.

Not only is his biblical theology warped beyond recognition, his reference to a Hindu deity is without understanding. As Jesus told the woman at the well, "You don't know what you're worshiping" (John 4:22a, ISV).
