    The Oklahoma Republican Party chairman who posted a photo of his family holding automatic weapons and compared vaccine mandates to wearing the Star of David  has called for the execution of Anthony Fauci by firing squad. John Bennett, 47, who is running for US Congress in Oklahoma's June GOP primary under the slogan 'conservative to the core,' made the comments to a cheering crowd during a campaign stop. Raging about opponents like 'communist Democrats' and 'establishment RINOS,' Bennett made the usual claims that the 2020 election was stolen, and declared a war with 'bureaucrats who have forced vaccine mandates on us, mask mandates on us.' John Bennett, Chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party, said that Anthony Fauci should be executed for vaccine and mask mandates at a recent campaign event Bennett (left, with gun) alongside his family (right of Bennett, with guns) is running to be Oklahoma's second district representative to the U.S. Congress in the state's June primary 'And you know what? They're pushing this wokeness confusion down our throats now.'  Then he added, 'And by the way, we should...
    Lara Logan found her name in a seemingly unending parade of headlines over the past year for some absolutely bat-guano comments that seemed to be too much for Fox News to tolerate. But in her mind, she wasn’t “pushed out” at the cable news network because decent people recoil at comparing Dr. Anthony Fauci to Auschwitz’s “Angel of Death,” but because “they don’t like independent thinkers.” Logan made that reprehensible comparison last November in an appearance on Fox News’ Prime Time, saying that Fauci did not represent science, but that “people” told her “he represents Joseph Mengele, Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the second World War and in the concentration camps.” These comments didn’t receive any pushback on air in that moment from the program’s guest host Pete Hegseth or the other guest Will Cain, but it did mark the end of her Fox News appearances. Prior to the comments, she had been a frequent guest on both the daytime news shows and evening opinion programs, but afterwards she seemed to have been...
    After hinting at retirement in comments earlier this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now making clear he’s not ready to walk away just yet. In a conversation on ABC’s This Week, Fauci was confronted by George Stephanopoulos about the prospect that he might leave his position as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. “You’ve said you’re going to stay in this job until we get out of the pandemic phase,” Stephanopoulos said. “You’ve served your country for decades. Are we approaching the point we’re beyond the pandemic phase and you’ll get some rest? Stephanopoulos was referencing comments made by Fauci on ABC’s Start Here podcast earlier this week, in which the infectious disease expert suggested that his time in public service might be coming to an end. “I have said that I would stay in what I’m doing until we get out of the pandemic phase and I think we might be there already, if we can stay in this,” Fauci said. He added, “I can’t stay at this job forever. Unless my staff is gonna find...
    Lara Logan has been dropped by United Talent Agency over her November remarks comparing Dr Anthony Fauci to the Nazi 'Angel of Death', Josef Mengele. Seth Oster, chief communications officer for UTA, confirmed to Mediaite that the agency cut ties with Logan several weeks ago. Logan was let go over her 'highly offensive' and 'unacceptable' comments, which sparked outrage within the agency, a source told Mediaite. South African-born Logan, 50, angered many with her November 29 appearance on Fox News, with the conservative network now scrubbing her from its broadcasts.  And last week, she told a podcaster that she doesn't know whether her relationship with the Murdoch-owned media giant even remains intact.  Host Pete Hegseth, a known critic of coronavirus vaccine mandates and masking policies, accused the Biden administration of overhyping Omicron.  'There's no justification for putting people out of there jobs or forcing mandates for a disease that's ultimately very treatable, it's cheap to treat, medicines are available all over the world, and it has death rates that compare very much to seasonal flu,' said Logan.  'In that moment, what...
    WASHINGTON -- As the "extraordinarily contagious" omicron variant surges across the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that COVID-19 cases will likely continue to climb."Every day it goes up and up. The last weekly average was about 150,000 and it likely will go much higher," Fauci told ABC "This Week" co-anchor Jonathan Karl.While Fauci said studies show omicron is less severe in terms of hospitalizations, he stressed, "we don't want to get complacent" because "when you have such a high volume of new infections, it might override a real diminution in severity.""If you have many, many, many more people with a less level of severity, that might kind of neutralize the positive effect of having less severity when you have so many more people," he explained. "And we're particularly worried about those who are in that unvaccinated class ... those are the most vulnerable ones when you have a virus that is extraordinarily effective in getting to people."On Tuesday, President Joe Biden announced a plan to distribute 500 million free at-home rapid tests to Americans beginning in January. The tests...
    Anthony Fauci, the president's chief medical advisor, called for the firing of a right-wing commentator who encouraged a crowd to execute a rhetorical "killshot" against Fauci. "The guy should be fired on the spot," Fauci said in response to a speech made during Fox News commentator Jesse Watters' Tuesday appearance at AmericaFest – a conservative youth conference hosted by Turning Point USA in Phoenix, Arizona. While onstage, Watters instructed a crowd of young conservative activists to "ambush" Fauci with a barrage of questions related to the origin of COVID-19. Over the past year, the virus' origin has grown into the subject of great conjecture amongst members of the far-right, who have baselessly alleged that Fauci facilitated a "lab leak" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. After overwhelming Fauci with a bombardment of questions, Watters continued, conservatives should round him off with a rhetorical "kill shot." "Now you go in for the kill shot," Watters explained. "The kill shot? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he doesn't see it coming. This is when you say: Dr. Fauci, you funded risky research at...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci is demanding that Fox News anchor Jesse Watters be fired for telling attendees at a conservatives conference to go after him 'with a kill shot'  On Monday, Watters, a conservative commentator on Fox News, gave audience members at the right-wing Turning Points USA conference tips on how to 'ambush' the chief White House medical adviser.  'Now you go in for the kill shot. The kill shot? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he doesn't see it coming,' Watters said.  'This is when you say "Dr. Fauci, you funded risky research at a sloppy Chinese lab, the same lab that sprung this pandemic on the world. You know why people dont trust you, don't you?" Boom! He is dead!,' Watters tells the crowd, who applauds.  He advised the students that once they got the confrontation clip they could send in the footage to Fox News and other conservative websites and networks and it would go viral.    'Imagine Tucker Carlson teases it out of the A block, "Coming Up: Brave college student confronts lord Fauci at dinner," he said. 'Get us...
    New York (CNN Business)Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday said that Fox News host Jesse Watters should be fired for using violent language at a conservative conference to encourage attendees to ambush him in hopes of creating a viral moment."I mean, that's crazy," Fauci added. "The guy should be fired on the spot."A spokesperson for Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Watters made his remarks Monday at the right-wing Turning Points USA conference where he gave students a playbook on how to record a viral moment that Fox News would air and that other right wing outlets would amplify. "Now you go in for the kill shot. The kill shot? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he doesn't see it coming," Watters said.Read MoreFauci reacted with shock to the "awful" comments on Tuesday, but also acknowledged that it's "very likely" Watters would go "unaccountable" at Fox News."The only thing that I have ever done throughout these two years is to encourage people to practice good public health practices: to get vaccinated, to be careful in public settings, to...
    Fauci went on to call on Fox News to discipline Logan. "What I find striking is how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network. How they can let her say that with no comment and no disciplinary action. I’m astounded by that," said Fauci. The comments from Logan prompted MSNBC host Joy Reid to accuse some conservatives of being a part of a "death cult" for their opposition for some of the government response to the coronavirus pandemic. Here's the video of Fauci's comments: Fauci ‘Astounded’ By Fox Silence After Host Compared Him To Nazi Doctor www.youtube.com
    New York (CNN Business)Lara Logan, a Fox News personality and host on its streaming service, was condemned by prominent Jewish groups and the Auschwitz Museum after she compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to a Nazi doctor infamous for performing medical experiments at the Auschwitz death camp.In an appearance on "Fox News Primetime" Monday, Logan said that people have told her that Fauci doesn't represent science, but represents Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who became known as the "Angel of Death" for the atrocities he committed.ADL calls on Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson over racist comments about replacement theory"I am talking about people all across the world are saying this," Logan claimed, providing zero evidence to support her wild assertion.Fox News did not respond to requests for comment.But elsewhere, the reaction was swift, with top organizations calling out Logan's comments as reprehensible.Read More"Exploiting the tragedy of people who became victims of criminal pseudo-medical experiments in Auschwitz in a debate about vaccines, pandemic and people who fight for saving human lives is shameful," the Auschwitz Museum said on Twitter.

    The War on Christmas comes earlier every year. Sadly, I fear it's become far too commercialized and has totally lost the spirit of the first War on Christmas, which was all about wholesome, time-tested traditions, like driving a vicious wedge between Americans based on religious belief and preference. You know, as God intended. Journalist and tweeter extraordinaire Aaron Rupar has collected some of Fox News' opening salvos in this year's War on Christmas, and—oh, guess what!—they're totally dishonest about what's really happening. It's almost as if they're bringing this up just to rile Christians, who are so monomaniacally devoted to their worldview they think Jesus walks on water or something. But before we watch them blow holiday rum balls out of their nostrils in a performative, minotaur-like rage, let's take a look at what Dr. Anthony Fauci actually said on CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday to kick off this year's phony fight against the "socialism rules, Yule drools" crowd.

    If you ask me, the War on Christmas started right here. The War on Christmas comes earlier every year. Sadly, I fear it’s become far too commercialized and has totally lost the spirit of the first War on Christmas, which was all about wholesome, time-tested traditions, like driving a vicious wedge between Americans based on religious belief and preference. You know, as God intended.

Rand PaulRandal (Rand) Howard PaulFive things to watch in two Ohio special election primaries Up next in the culture wars: Adding women to the draft The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - A huge win for Biden, centrist senators MORE (R) calls out Youtube for censoring his comment section on his channel’s page. In a statement on Tuesday, Paul said that the social media platform removed a video of him being interview by a Newsmax journalist on the topic of science behind mask-wearing.  The senator explained that Youtube told him that the video violated their policy, saying that they don’t allow videos “that contradict government's guidance on COVID,” where he claimed Youtube, a private entity company, is acting “like an arm of the government.”  “YouTube may be a private entity, but they're acting like an arm of the government censoring those who present an alternative view to the science deniers in Washington,” Paul said.   Censorship by YouTube is very dangerous as it stifles debate and promotes groupthink where the “truth” is defined by people with...
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) claimed Dr. Anthony Fauci committed perjury over his gain of function comments related to Communist China’s Wuhan lab. Paul was asked on Real America’s Voice’s The Water Cooler show, “do you believe he [Fauci] perjured himself?” “Absolutely, he lied to the America people. There was gain of function research going on with Dr. Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute,” Fauci explained. In her paper, she actually thanked Dr. Fauci and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is a part of National Institutes of Health (NIH) that Dr. Fauci runs,” Paul continued. “It’s listed at the end of the paper. This paper was fined by NIAID research and it lists a ten digit number that identifies the research money she got from from the United States. Was it gain of function?” Paul asked. “Well it took a SARS virus, which is a coronavirus, that’s 15 times more deadly than COVID, and it added to it S protein, which is something in the surface of it, to make it more easily infectious to epithelial cells for the respiratory tract. That to...

    Fauci said he would 'get in trouble' for telling the truth under Trump. Infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Thursday it is "liberating" for him to be allowed to tell the truth about the COVID-19 pandemic response under President Joe Biden, after being muzzled during Donald Trump's administration. Fauci is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Biden's chief medical adviser. He made his comments at a White House press briefing Thursday in his first extended comments from the White House briefing room in months. "The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence — what the science is, and know that's it, let the science speak, it is somewhat of a liberating feeling," Fauci said, contrasting the current situation under Biden to the one under Trump.
    Dr. Anthony Fauci responded to former Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s call for his head on a pike when asked about his experience working in the White House during an interview Wednesday.  Fauci was asked on the Australian TV news program “The 7:30 Report” about “managing a pandemic and dealing with Donald Trump at the same time,” The Hill reported. He cited Bannon’s controversial comments from early November as an example of the difficulty of going from a doctor to a public figure. (RELATED: Dr. Scott Atlas Attacks Fauci, Raising Tensions Among Task Force Members) “Well, it’s obviously been very stressful,” Fauci said. “To deny that would be to deny reality. When you have public figures like Bannon calling for your beheading, that’s really kind of unusual, I think. That’s not the kind of thing you think about when you’re going through medical school to be a physician. But I’ve gotten through it by really focusing like a laser beam on exactly what my goal is.” All of us are stressed and having a hard time, but at least we’re not...

    President Trump suggested he might fire infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci during a campaign rally in Miami. Chants of "fire Fauci" broke out about 25 minutes into Trump's fifth rally of the day. Trump indicated he was open to the idea. "Don't tell anybody, but let me wait till a little after the election," he said. "I appreciate the advice." Trump followed up by saying Fauci is a "nice man" before noting that the health expert was "wrong" to say early in the coronavirus pandemic that most Americans don't need to wear masks and to oppose restricting travel from China where the outbreak originated, a claim which is at odds with Fauci's public comments. Fauci has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and is a member of the White House coronavirus task force. At times, he and Trump have been at odds during the pandemic. In a recent interview, Fauci told the Washington Post that the United States is in for "a whole lot of hurt," warning of a surge in COVID-19 cases...
    The Trump campaign on Tuesday slammed the Biden campaign and the media, claiming a double standard after Dr. Anthony Fauci took issue with President Trump’s team using his comments in their ads, but staying quiet when his comments are used in videos shared by the former vice president’s campaign. Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said this week that his comments in a recent Trump campaign ad were used without his permission and were “taken out of context.” FAUCI SAYS HIS COMMENTS IN NEW TRUMP AD 'WERE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT' AND WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION But the Trump campaign is firing back at Fauci and pointing to ads used and comments made by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “Our ad shows Dr. Fauci accurately, and in his own words, praising the Trump administration’s response to the virus,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News Tuesday. “Joe Biden has cherry picked Fauci’s comments when it suits him and there’s been no outrage about that,” Murtaugh added. “Either Fauci’s comments are fair to use in this race, or they’re not. Biden and the...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci is not happy he is being used in a new ad from President Donald Trump’s campaign to tout his coronavirus response. Several months ago, Mark Levin spoke with Fauci on his Fox News show — he has since publicly trashed Fauci a number of times — and asked him, “Have you ever seen this big of a coordinated response by an administration to such a threat — a health threat?” During that interview back in March, Fauci said the coordinated response has been “impressive” and said, “I can’t imagine that that under any circumstances that anybody could be doing more.” Months later, the Trump campaign is using those remarks to try and tout the progress the U.S. has made on the coronavirus. “President Trump tackled the virus head-on, as leaders should,” the voiceover says, before the comments from Fauci play. Fauci himself actually responded to that ad in comments to CNN seriously objecting to being “taken out of context”: “In my nearly five decades of public service, I have never publicly endorsed any political candidate. The comments attributed...
    ABC News’ Jon Karl opened This Week Sunday morning by calling out the White House over a lack of access to top health experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci. Karl said the White House “wouldn’t allow” Fauci or other medical experts to appear on the show to talk about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and he made a point of saying Fauci himself was “more than willing to join us. And this isn’t even the first time one of the big Sunday shows has directly called out the White House on this topic. White House communications director Alyssa Farah responded by insisting no one is being “muzzled” — pointing to recent media appearances Fauci has made — and specifically claiming that Karl “didn’t request any other member of the task force.” FALSE. 1) Dr Fauci has been doing media all week – appearing on PBS Newshour & NBC’s Andrea Mitchell3 days ago. 2) not getting your desired guest does not = the WH trying to “muzzle” anyone. This narrative is tired. 3) @jonkarl didn’t request any other member of the task force. https://t.co/C6UZciVO26...
    NEW JERSEY (WABC) -- With President Donald Trump returning to the White House and insisting the public to "not be afraid of COVID," Dr. Deborah Birx, head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, visited Rowan University in New Jersey to emphasize that the steps recommended by public health officials can help bring down cases."I think we've been very clear in our public health messaging that the reason we're on a university campus," Birx said.Birx visited the college campus Tuesday as part of a nationwide campus tour.She said of the 18 universities she has visited in 30 states, Rowan "has the best signage we've seen." Rowan has had the most students living on campus this semester of any state university."They brought down the cases, because the students change their behavior," Birx said. "And really the university supported that behavior change for providing isolation and quarantine. And so, those public health messages are on change."Birx questioned if "we can empower the community that we believe there's a message of how we get through this in a positive way.""Absolutely, but we all...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said it’s “not a good thing” to downplay a serious threat when asked about the president’s comments early on in the coronavirus pandemic Friday. Andrea Mitchell asked Fauci about President Donald Trump saying the U.S. has “rounded the final turn.” “I’m sorry, but I have to disagree with that,” Fauci said, “because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned, the statistics, Andrea, they are disturbing. We’re plateauing at around 40,000 cases a day. And the deaths are around a thousand.” He talked about the ongoing risks of indoor vs. outdoor events, saying “if we want to get back to the normal existence of being able to enjoy being in a restaurant, the best way to do that is to get the community level of infection at the lowest level possible” and again expressing concern about large Trump rallies where many people aren’t wearing masks. Mitchell also asked Fauci about his comments this week about how it likely won’t be completely safe to go to movie theaters or other indoor venues until some after...
    In the most direct rebuke of the infectious disease expert who helped guide his administrations global coronavirus response, President Donald Trump called out Dr. Anthony Fauci as "wrong" on slowing the spread in the U.S. Trump tweeted: "Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000. If we tested less, there would be less cases. How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG!" Trumps comments came in response to Faucis comments to the House select subcommittee investigating the Trump administrations pandemic response, tweeted out by CBS News. "If you look at what happened in Europe when they shut down or locked down or went into shelter-in-place – however you want to describe it – they really did it to the tune of about 95-plus percent of the country did that. When you actually look at what we did, even though we shut down, even though it created a great deal of difficulty, we really functionally...
    (CNN)Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, said Tuesday he considered himself "more a realist than an alarmist" after President Donald Trump on Sunday labeled him "a little bit of an alarmist" even as the coronavirus pandemic worsens."Well, I mean people have their opinion about my reaction to things. I consider myself more a realist than an alarmist," Fauci told CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead" when asked about Trump's characterization."But, you know, people do have their opinions other than that. I've always thought of myself as a realist when it comes to this."Fauci's comments follow a tense stretch with the President that saw the White House make a concerted effort to discredit him as he became increasingly vocal about his concerns over reopening the country amid a national surge in coronavirus cases. Earlier this month, a White House official told CNN that "several White House officials are concerned about the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things." The official went on to provide a lengthy list of examples, citing Fauci's comments early in the...
