Dr. Deborah Birx is the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator. She published her book on her single-person attack against our government and economy, under the pretense of saving us the Wuhan virus. Although it’s been around for some time, the book is finally getting the attention that it deserves. The book’s title is Silent Invasion and, to quote Michael Senger ,, “the book reads like a guide for subverting democracy from the inside, and it can only be told by someone who has been on the frontlines doing that .”
There are some great reviews of the book out there that I won’t attempt to match (see here and here); rather, I’ll present some selected highlights.
Birx appears to have been aware that COVID had been created at a Chinese laboratory .
Former President Donald Trump’s adviser believes Covid-19 could have leaked from a Wuhan lab where scientists were working on vaccines for similar viruses.
Infectious diseases expert and former presidential Covid adviser Dr Deborah Birx told The Mail on Sunday that coronavirus ‘came out of the box ready to infect’ when it emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2020.
The adviser stated that most viruses can take several months to infect humans. However, Dr Birx stated that Covid was already more contagious than the flu at its first appearance.
She said this meant that Covid was an “abnormal phenomenon of nature” or that Chinese scientists were working on coronavirus vaccines and got infected.
‘ It happens. Labs don’t always work perfectly, and people make mistakes. There can also be contamination.
She claimed that China initially covered up the fact that Covid was so infectious.
Birx stated that Covid’s infectivity was similar to a virus that had been tested on in a laboratory.
‘In labs, you can grow the virus inside human cells. This allows it to adapt better. She said that the virus adapts to human cells as it goes through them.
Birx claimed to be heavily influenced from a video that we now know is a Chinese operation.
Staring at my computer screen, I was horrified by the images from Wuhan, the suffering they portrayed, but also because they confirmed what I’d suspected for the last three weeks: Not only was the Chinese government underreporting the real numbers of the infected and dying in Wuhan and elsewhere, but the situation was definitely far more dire than most people outside that city realized. I had only heard or read about this virus until now. It was now visible online by this brave doctor.

While she was falling for the horror videos, she also fell for the bullshstory of a 1,000-bed hospital constructed in ten days.
15 Days to Slow the Spread was the fraud we all thought it was.
I tried to find a way to prolong the shutdown after we had convinced Trump’s administration to go with our two-week shutdown. Although Fifteen days to slow the spread was an initial step, I knew that it would not be as long. Although I did not have enough numbers to justify the extension, I still had 2 weeks to obtain them. Getting another shutdown approval for the 15-day period was difficult, regardless of how hard I tried.
While we are talking about frauds can we recall the bizarre and foolish history of “six foot separation”? READ: The Six Foot Social Distancing Rule is on its way out. But the real story of how we got there in the first place is the six-foot social distancing rule.
The 10-person limit on gatherings was the fraud we all thought it was.
I had decided on ten, knowing it was too much. However, I thought that at least ten would be acceptable for the majority of Americans. It would allow enough room for immediate family, yet not enough to host large gatherings ….. Likewise, pushing for zero would have been seen as a “lockdown”, which was something we all worked so hard to avoid.
I don’t believe that large-scale social events can have an effect on COVID spread. Media tried to denigrate the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (“As the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Begins, the Same Tired Apocalyptic Claim That It’s a Superspreader Event”) and the Super Bowl (“Superspreader Event: Creating a Sad In the Pandemic Porn Industry.”) as “superspreader events.
Birx desired an Italy-style lockdown, but was too afraid to speak up.
At this stage, I was not about to say lockdown or shut down. They would have pushed to shut me up and lock me down.
Monday and Tuesday were spent sorting out the CDC data problems. On Monday and Tuesday we also worked together to create the flatten the-curve guidance that I hoped to show the vice president by week’s close. The first step to more extensive and longer-lasting interventions was getting buy-in for the basic mitigation steps that every American could adopt. These measures had to be acceptable to the government without giving the impression of an Italian lockdown. We also needed to slow down the spread of the money. This meant matching the results as closely as possible with Italy’s. It was a difficult task. In chess, each move’s success was determined by the previous one.
. We saw glimpses of Birx’s double-dealing in Anthony Fauci’s morphing statements about mask wear. (President Trump Does Not Wear a Mask, and You Don’t Have to Either. The Case for Masks has Taken another Body Blow. Birx didn’t have any data from China about how lockdowns or shutdowns work. Birx knew America wouldn’t stand for such nonsense so she began to take smaller steps to get to the lockdown.
We’ll be back to the topic of duplicity shortly.
Birx used to hate Dr. Scott Atlas…probably even more, now that he has been proved right.
On August 10, 2020, Dr. Scott Atlas joined the COVID task force. After seeing Birx’s game, he fought for it and was eventually forced to leave the White House. Michael Senger’s review is epic.
Birx’s apparent plan to almost singlehandedly destroy the world’s primary democratic superpower is going swimmingly until she meets the book’s leading antagonist: Dr. Scott Atlas. Birx is disgusted when Atlas stands up for the very things that she hates, including democratic governance and human rights.
Birx lists Atlas “dangerous assertions”.
That schools could open everywhere without any precautions (neither masking nor testing), regardless of the status of the spread in the community.
That children did not transmit the virus.
That children didn’t get ill. That there was no risk to anyone young.
That long Covid-19 was being overplayed.
These heart-damage results were accidental.
Comorbidities were not a major factor in the lives of teachers, particularly among those with disabilities.
The virus could be overcome by simply moving some distance.
That masks were overrated and not needed.
That the Coronavirus Task Force had gotten the country into this situation by promoting testing.
That testing falsely increased case counts in the United States in comparison with other countries.
That targeted testing and isolation constituted a lockdown, plain and simple, and weren’t needed.
That every word of Atlas’s assertions was obviously 100% true only made them all the more dangerous. According to Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, “One truth will outweigh all the rest”, and there is no way for the communist world’s destiny to be thwarted faster than spreading these obvious truths freely.
The bold-faced items indicate that Atlas was vindicated. You can quickly see which person was correct by looking at this list.
More about the Atlas hate.
Scott Atlas recalls this in his book A Plague upon Our House :
Birx emphasized the importance of diagnosing asymptomatic patients. She stated that testing was the best way to determine if someone is sick. She memorably exclaimed, “That’s why it’s so dangerous–people don’t even know they’re sick!” I felt myself looking around the room, wondering if I was the only one who had heard this.
Birx spends roughly the next 150 pages of her book recalling her anguish as Atlas thwarted her plans to keep America in a near-permanent state of lockdown. As Atlas recalls:
She was furious as she stood in front of the Oval Office door. She was furious, screaming at me, “NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!! AND IN THE OVAL! !” I felt pretty bad, because she was so angry. I had absolutely no desire for conflict. But did she actually expect me to lie to the president, just to cover up for her? I responded, “Sorry, but he asked me a question, so I answered it.”
Birx was the one who called the shots, and not Fauci.
Back to Senger, quoting Scott Atlas’ book.
Indeed. Birx’s autobiography corroborates Atlas’s testimony about the enormous role he played to end lockdowns across the United States. This was more about standing up for Birx, who did much more than Fauci in promoting and prolonging lockdowns throughout the United States. As Atlas explains:
Dr. Fauci was the court of public opinion on a daily base, and many mistakenly believe he is in charge. It was actually Dr. Birx that formulated Task Force policy. All the advice from the Task Force to the states came from Dr. Birx. All of Dr. Birx’s written recommendations regarding their policies on the ground were his. Birx. Dr. Birx conducted almost all the visits to states on behalf of the Task Force.
This may or may not actually be true. If you read Birx’s bio, it is obvious that she was Fauci’s creature. He was his mentor and she sailed with him. She was mentored by him. She is unlikely to act independently and Fauci will not let a single molecule of his power escape from him. It would not be wise for the nation to absolve Fauci arbitrarily of any role in COVID before the jury returns a verdict.
Birx intentionally deceived President Trump and his advisors.
Shocking, right? It’s shocking to think that someone with terminal god syndrome, an entitled and privileged liberal, would try to deceive others in order for her will be realized.
This is from Jeffrey Tucker’s review of the Birx book.
Birx admits that she was a major part of the reason, due to her sneaky alternation of weekly reports to the states.
After the heavily edited documents were returned to me, I’d reinsert what they had objected to, but place it in those different locations. Also, I reorganized and restructured the bullet point so that the most important points–the ones the administration opposed to the most–were not at the beginning of the bullet points. These strategies were shared with three other members of the data team who also wrote these reports. Our Saturday and Sunday report-writing routine soon became: write, submit, revise, hide, resubmit.
Fortunately, this strategic sleight-of-hand worked. That they never seemed to catch this subterfuge left me to conclude that, either they read the finished reports too quickly or they neglected to do the word search that would have revealed the language to which they objected. In slipping these changes past the gatekeepers and continuing to inform the governors of the need for the big-three mitigations–masks, sentinel testing, and limits on indoor social gatherings–I felt confident I was giving the states permission to escalate public health mitigation with the fall and winter coming.
Another example is that Scott Atlas, who came to our rescue in August, brought some sense to this crazy world. He worked together with other people to reduce the CDC’s obsession with constant and universal testing. Atlas understood that the “track, trace and isolate” method was both an absurdity and a huge invasion of individual liberties which would not produce a positive outcome for public health. His new suggestion was for people who are sick and not able to be tested – as you might in everyday life.
After a media frenzy lasting a week, regulations were reversed.
Birx shows that she did it:
This wasn’t the only bit of subterfuge I had to engage in. After the revised CDC testing guidelines were published in August by Atlas, I contacted Bob Redfield . Bob Redfield and I completed our revision of the guidance in less than one week and posted it secretly. The emphasis was now on testing in order to find areas of silent spread. We knew it was risky, but we were hopeful that everyone at the White House wouldn’t be so busy campaigning not to see what Bob and me had done. We weren’t being transparent with the powers that be in the White House.
Who covered Birx’s expenses when she refused to follow President Trump’s instructions?
T]he guidance gambit was only the tip of the iceberg of my transgressions in my effort to subvert Scott Atlas’s dangerous positions. Since Vice President Pence instructed me to do the right thing, I had been having very direct conversations with governors. Some White House senior advisers wouldn’t admit that I had spoken the truth. Censoring my reports and putting up guidance that negated the known solutions was only going to perpetuate Covid-19’s vicious circle. In person, what I could not get past the gatekeepers of my reports was something I did.
The pigheaded foolishness based upon unwarranted hubris is one I understand and perhaps can even sympathize with. Birx, however, descends into criminality. Birx illegally altered the instructions and guidance she received from people who were more senior than her, including President Trump. She had an obligation, if she did not agree with what was being instructed to her to do then she could challenge the instructions in open and transparent manner and do as she was directed. She was required to quit if she did not like the orders. Birx should be charged with felony murder for every person that died in an unattended hospital bed, every company bankrupted, and each child who was deprived of a school year because Birx’s actions.
Two years ago I conducted this interview with Susie Moore. 5. Conversation with Streiff about Elite Incompetence. There was a thesis that the world is ruled over by idiots. People who say they have all the answers to the crisis facing us (e.g. Ukraine, COVID or climate change) are just fing idiots. These people are cruel twists on the Dunning–Kruger Effect. The Dunning-Kruger Effect is defined as “a cognitive bias whereby people with limited knowledge or competence in a given intellectual or social domain greatly overestimate their own knowledge or competence in that domain relative to objective criteria or to the performance of their peers or of people in general.” Our elites claim to have knowledge and competence, but they don’t, and no one, other than guys like me, calls them out when they are shown to be incompetent morons. This post was also written by me: The Government Does Not Make the Same Mistakes as We Did About COVID; They Must Have Intent.
Birx is a reminder of both these truths. Birx, a brilliantly educated fool with an impeccable professional reputation, was not called upon to perform anything beyond spewing theories. Birx has never managed an organisation that produced real results. Our elites committed stupid acts of deceit. These actions are not science-based, according to me. They had a strong message of totalitarianism, I believe. To replace the legislatures with bureaucratic unelected bureaucrats, and to crush the First Amendment, “public health crises” were a stalking horse.
A final point. Everyone who claims that there is no “Deep State” should be ridiculed. We saw many instances of bureaucrats creating their own rules while disregarding laws and ordering them to ignore. This was evident throughout the Trump administration. The Deep State has also been known to close ranks in order to protect members exposed. One lawyer inflicts himself on a FISA warrant to get probation and his license is restored. A former FBI officer attempts to pull off a coup, and is permitted to retire. Ex-intelligence officials were part of a conspiracy to overthrow a President without any consequences. Birx is able to write her own book detailing her duplicity, and it’s praised by most of the media. This shows how far the Deep State can go.
