This paper just started drawing some attention, but so far what I've read appears to miss a big part of the point, although only by omission (in other words, it may be poor exposition rather than stupidity or something similar, as the fundamental problem is discussed in those other writings.)
Let's get to the punchline: Fauci had every reason to believe Covid, being a beta coronavirus, could not be controlled by vaccination. He knew why too; it was not, by any stretch of the imagination, expected to work. To the contrary he never expected it to work.
As such he knew that that the CDC's and Biden's statements that you won't get Covid if you get vaccinated were almost-certainly false and yet he said nothing. The CDC knew everything he did so all the CDC's statements were intentionally false and fraudulent.
Let's go through it, because while the other folks who have written on this have made hay about it I want to highlight the actual reasons that he knew, which are laid out in this paper.
Viruses that replicate in the human respiratory mucosa without infecting systemically, including influenza A, SARS-CoV-2, endemic coronaviruses, RSV, and many other “common cold” viruses, cause significant mortality and morbidity and are important public health concerns. Because these viruses generally do not elicit complete and durable protective immunity by themselves, they have not to date been effectively controlled by licensed or experimental vaccines.
The punchline in the first paragraph of the summary: We knew it almost-certainly would not work because the infections themselves do not elicit permanent, durable protection and thus there was no reason to believe it was possible to vaccinate against them.
(No, you don't get to call something a "vaccine" if it does not elicit durable, complete protection in nearly everyone you give it to.)
The first admission: The flu shot is not licensable under the criteria for a vaccine and thus it too is a fraud! and this has been known for decades yet has been knowingly and intentionally left on the market despite not meeting the criteria for a "vaccine":
As of 2022, after more than 60 years of experience with influenza vaccines, very little improvement in vaccine prevention of infection has been noted. As pointed out decades ago, and still true today, the rates of effectiveness of our best approved influenza vaccines would be inadequate for licensure for most other vaccine-preventable diseases.
I've pointed this out before but now we have the head of the NIH's division in charge of such (until he just retired) admitting it. Where was Fauci during all those decades correcting the record and telling people the truth, demanding that this ineffective shot for influenza that did not meet the criteria for licensing as a "vaccine" be withdrawn and, if offered at all, be promoted instead as a "prophylaxis" of uncertain and in fact dubious value?
This FRAUD has been perpetrated upon the American public for decades, by this paper's (Fauci's name is on it, again) own admission.
Considering that vaccine development and licensure is a long and complex process requiring years of preclinical and clinical safety and efficacy data, the limitations of influenza and SARS-CoV-2 vaccines remind us that candidate vaccines for most other respiratory viruses have to date been insufficiently protective for consideration of licensure, including candidate vaccines against RSV, a major killer of infants and the elderly, parainfluenzaviruses, endemic coronaviruses, and many other “common cold” viruses that cause significant morbidity and economic loss.
Oh, except when the long and complex process is deliberately not followed? Why not? Because, by the previous cite, everyone involved knew that if they went through the full process the odds are that it would fail as a matter of regulatory and legal requirements.
Fauci once again knew this and once again deliberately ignored it to run a mass experiment he had every reason to believe would fail on the American public as a whole.
And fail it did, exactly as expected.
Next, we get to why it failed, which Fauci also discloses he knew:
However, natural infections with these three vaccine-controlled respiratory viruses, as well as smallpox and varicella zoster virus (VZV), are not representative of infections caused by most respiratory viruses. They differ in at least three critically important ways that are related to their successful control with vaccines (Table 1):
(1) after first replicating mucosally, these systemic respiratory viruses all cause significant viremia that seeds an enormous number of infectious virions throughout the body, putting them in contact with multiple immune compartments and immune competent cell types,
(2) they have relatively long incubation periods that reflect initial mucosal replication and the subsequent systemic spread of infectious virions, which allows time for the induction of the full force of adaptive immunity, and
(3) they elicit long-term or lifetime protective immunity (Table 1).
That Covid did not do #1 was known within months -- long before any of the EUAs issued. Only in extremely severe and fatal cases was viremia detected. That's a good thing because unlike those other diseases the spike protein alone is pathogenic so if you get nailed with viremia when you get a coronavirus you are quite-likely to turn septic and die, where for these other diseases that is nowhere near as likely. Even smallpox is less-lethal when one considers viremia, since smallpox almost always results in viremia and while it has a high mortality rate compared with those people who got viremia from Covid its not all that bad.
Chickenpox (varicella zoster) almost always causes viremia but in children is almost-never fatal (about 4 in 100,000, which is worse than Covid, believe it or not.)
And did they know Covid was not viremic? Yes; disclosed right here:
d Although SARS-CoV-2 antigens have been detected in multiple tissues, the virus does not appear to be associated with significant “free” viremia, as evidenced by difficulty in culturing infectious virions from blood or tissues, and by weak elicitation of broad and durable protective systemic immunity.
And the hits just keep coming:
Taking all of these factors into account, it is not surprising that none of the predominantly mucosal respiratory viruses have ever been effectively controlled by vaccines. This observation raises a question of fundamental importance: if natural mucosal respiratory virus infections do not elicit complete and long-term protective immunity against reinfection, how can we expect vaccines, especially systemically administered non-replicating vaccines, to do so?
Let me translate that: "We knew it almost-certainly would not work so we worked with the manufacturers to game the process so the inevitable failure would be hidden and not doom their sales which, if we ran it to the ground as we should have would have resulted in clinical trial failures and thus no licensure or profits."
Not only that Fauci and the rest knew (as does anyone else who has studied this) that organisms inhale and ingest huge amounts of proteins of foreign origin all the time, every day. The immune system has adapted to this because it must; were it to react violently to all of them your own immune system would kill you within days.
But now it gets worse: They admit they don't understand the system in general, yet they claimed to have "the answer":
Nevertheless, the effectiveness of circulating Ig in these situations depends on transudation to mucosal surfaces of very high titers of antibody with specificity for key viral epitopes. It is not fully understood how such transudation is controlled, how antiviral IgA is regulated to function in both passive immunity and immune regulation, or how to elicit and sustain such high antibody levels with vaccination.
Translated: We don't know how the body does this on its own and we don't know how to make it happen through alleged "vaccination" for diseases in this category either.
In other words they went ahead with something they knew they did not understand, yet they claimed it did work -- without evidence.
Oh, and if that's not enough the paper goes on to admit that they knew the jabs likely could not protect the lungs!
Because the pulmonary immune system is semi-autonomous, it may be difficult for either systemically administered or upper respiratory-administered vaccines designed to prevent infection to additionally prevent pulmonary infection if upper respiratory infection spreads to the lungs.
Again, they had no evidence this problem had been solved. To develop said evidence would require years, not three months. Yet they did not care, proceeded anyway and conducted an experiment on 200 million Americans by lying about what they claimed to know.
To understand how vaccines might protect against lower respiratory infections, we will need to learn how the “cross-talk” between upper respiratory, lower respiratory, and systemic immune systems is coordinated and controlled, at the level of cell receptors, antigen sensing, antigen presentation, and numerous effector functions.
If you need to learn something you obviously don't know it now, nor did you in 2020.
Yet the entire medical, government and pharmacological system worldwide claimed to know. That was a lie.
In contrast, a human influenza challenge study after vaccination with inactivated vaccines or live-attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), followed by LAIV challenge, was unable to find any immunologic correlates of protection.
They've tried to find these correlations with influenza in the past and have failed, yet do recall that unlike years of old when it was a "flu shot", which makes no claim as to vaccination they now call it a vaccine which it clearly is not and again is fraud.
The paper goes on to discuss much in relationship to future development, which would take ten thousand or more words to express a full opinion on, and, while such might be worth my while at some point it isn't the purpose of this article.
This paper documents that Fauci and the rest of the immunological community knew damn well the gambit with the existing jabs was almost-certain to fail as every attempt in a similar virus that had similar characteristics had failed, that the correct targeting (in the upper-respiratory mucosa) was not part of the induced response and thus there was no reason to believe it would work, that the existing flu shots are not, under contemporary standards, good enough to meet licensing criteria yet they have not been withdrawn, and that the current hype over things such as the mRNA RSV trials is almost-certainly wildly overblown and will fail, either on efficacy, safety or both as the targeting and immune response elicited is known to be wrong for a durable, protective response.
The only "saving grace" for the flu shot is that it almost-never does actual harm.
However, we knew in December of 2020 this would not be true for Covid-19 as we knew in December of 2020 when the Salk paper first published that the spike alone, if it got into the circulation, was dangerously pathogenic even without the rest of the virus.
In short Fauci and everyone else who was opining as an "expert" knew the path taken was almost-certain to fail and was dangerous.
You can justify a "will probably fail" attempt in the middle of a pandemic if you can be reasonably certain it is safe as there is little or not risk so if you take the moonshot and are wrong nobody is worse off than would otherwise be.
That definitely does not apply here and these people all knew it. If I can read the medical papers all the way back to December of 2020 and understand them sufficiently so can everyone else, especially those who claim to be "experts."
I thought we'd have to subpoena Fauci before Congress to get at these facts, he'd probably lie, and since Congress never sends over a referral for perjury and even if they did the DOJ won't prosecute it; this standard goes all the way back to Clinton -- he'd get away with it. Arrogance, however, now says otherwise; he admitted to all the elements involved on his own initiative in a voluntarily published paper.
Every one of those involved must pay for this and the millions of Americans alone they compromised with this crap and their deliberate lies.
All of them.
