WASHINGTON, July 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Biden administration Press Secretary Jen Psaki is refusing to disclose how many White House staffers have contracted COVID-19 despite having been vaccinated, suggesting the information would be insignificant.
“Because of our commitment to transparency, what we’re going to be providing, moving forward, are updates on any White House official who tests positive for COVID-19 that the White House medical unit deemed as having had close contact with the president, vice president, first lady, or second gentleman,” Psaki claimed last Wednesday, The Hill reports, following reports of positive cases among an unspecified number of vaccinated staffers.
The next day, however, Psaki said that because a few instances would be “statistically” inevitable among a staff of approximately 2,000 people, the administration would not be disclosing exact “numbers of breakthrough cases,” Business Insider reports. “We’re in a very different place than we were several months ago,” because the “vast majority” of post-vaccination COVID cases have either mild or no symptoms.
The White House’s comments follow news that six Texas Democrat lawmakers who fled the state to Washington, D.C., in hopes of blocking a vote on an election security bill tested positive for COVID-19 after meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris. The White House says Harris subsequently tested negative for the virus.
Still, the specter of breakthrough cases, several anecdotal cases of which have been reported over the past few months, threatens to undermine the Biden administration’s efforts to convince hesitant Americans to vaccinate against COVID-19, as well as President Joe Biden’s recent claim that “you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”
As of July 27, approximately 163.3 million Americans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, just under half the country’s population. Vaccination rates stalled considerably after an initial surge of interest.
Many Americans remain concerned that the COVID vaccines have not been sufficiently studied for negative effects given their accelerated clinical trials, while some harbor ethical reservations about the use of cells from aborted babies in some of the vaccines’ development, and still others simply consider them unnecessary given COVID-19’s high survivability among most groups, low risk of asymptomatic spread, and research indicating that post-infection natural immunity is equally — if not more — protective against reinfection.
The administration’s push also continues to be undermined by the federal government’s own actions sending mixed signals about both the vaccines’ effectiveness and whether the vaccinated will be allowed to return to a normal life.
PETITION UPDATE (5/12/2021) -
It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in the NIH's funding of so-called "gain-of-function" research may be catching up with him.
In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox's Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.
Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.
But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci's department in the NIH, "collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it."
And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.
So, the evidence - both in testimony and in the court of public opinion - continues to mount.
Could we ask you to consider SIGNING and SHARING this important petition, which calls for Dr. Fauci to be fired and investigated for any role he played in promoting and funding the dangerous research which may have cost the world dearly in lives and jobs lost.
When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than "Mr. Science" himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci's NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.
Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.
Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.
However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition if you agree that Dr. Anthony Fauci should instead be immediately fired and investigated for his role in causing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.
As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.
Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.
And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.
Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to demand that Dr. Fauci be fired immediately and investigated fully for his role in the creation of Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic.
P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.
P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden's return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.

Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI) noted Wednesday that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s (CDC’s) latest guidance that indoor masking should resume in some areas even among the vaccinated appears to have been based, at least in part, on an Indian study involving a different COVID-19 vaccine than the three currently being used in the United States.
“For over a year CDC has utterly failed to grasp complex play [between] risk balancing [and] human behavior,” Meijer said. “Instead of communicating risks & allowing us to exercise judgment CDC issues sweeping proclamations that cast doubt [and] undermine trust. This category mistake is no different.”
