From the Tom Woods Letter:
Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry recently had a chance to question Anthony Fauci in a suit involving censorship of dissident scientists.
And what do you know: Fauci just can't seem to remember anything.
"We spent seven hours with Dr. Fauci-this is a man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon 'the science, follow the science'-and over the course of seven hours, we discovered that he can't recall practically anything dealing with his COVID response," Landry said.
"It was extremely troubling to realize that this is a man who advises presidents of the United States and yet couldn't recall information he put out, information he discussed, press conferences he held dealing with the COVID-19 response," he added.
The Epoch Times reports, "Landry declined to provide more details about the deposition until it is made public, which will happen at a future date. But he said officials would be able to take some of what they learned to advance their case."
Jenin Younes, a lawyer and Tom Woods Show guest who is also representing the plaintiffs, noted that Fauci claimed not to be especially worried about the Great Barrington Declaration, which called for "focused protection" of the vulnerable instead of lockdowns, even though Francis Collins of the National Institutes of Health wrote to Fauci urging a "devastating public takedown of its premises," and even though Fauci attacked it on several occasions.
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki is scheduled to be deposed on December 8.
One of the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration (and also a party to the lawsuit), Stanford's Jay Bhattacharya, recently joined me on the Tom Woods Show to discuss the premise behind the case as well as a Soho Forum debate on lockdowns that Jay recently won. (Oxford-style debates have objective winners, because the audience is polled before and after the debate.)
Jay's eyes have been opened since 2020 about how the health establishment operates. "I was naive," he confessed to me in our interview.
Also, a quick reminder that I'm holding an event in Orlando - my Practical Liberty Summit - in January for all those of you who already have plenty of libertarian theory in your brains, but who'd now like to take action. Everything from how to win in a blue state, how to undo propaganda in people's minds, how to finance real estate without the bank, how to get physically fit without falling into destructive myths, plus plenty of business and marketing advice, and a lot more.
All practical, no theory.
Plus, entertainment from the great Doc Dixon, the magician who sawed me in half at my 2000th episode event and who fooled Penn & Teller on their "Fool Us" television program.
The event is free for my School of Life members, and open for a fee to non-members:
