Fauci Blinded Us with Science

 

covid versus public healthAnthony Fauci is a very senior federal bureaucrat who has clung to the top of one small bureaucracy for the past fifty years. He falsely poses as an objective oracle of “science.” In truth, he was far past his sell-by date when put forward as the supposed non-partisan face of federal medical authority. Anyone who had advised every president since Reagan must be safe, just like nobody was fired for buying IBM products back in the day.

Fauci knew, Fauci lied:

  • Fauci knew the scary model with millions dying was a complete fraud, generated as the latest iteration of a serial scam artist posing as a real “scientist.” He used it to deliberately deceive the president, the Congress, and the world.
  • Fauci knew the “flatten the curve” cocktail napkin graph was empty of quantitative data and entirely unsupported by any peer-reviewed scientific publication. He used it to deliberately deceive the president, the Congress, and the world.
  • Fauci knew he was entirely unqualified to speak on the whole of public health. He knew that his plandemic experimental course of treatment for the United States would have entirely predictable side effects, quantified by decades of real science in cancer, heart disease, blood clots, stroke, diabetes, suicide, drug addiction, and more. He willfully falsely held himself out at all times as speaking for all of medicine, for public health, as opposed to grubby economics and other political considerations.
  • Fauci ignored the facts of Chinese Communist Party control and distortion of science, evidenced in the early 2000’s SARS epidemic. He knew that his counterparts were not able to actually behave as he falsely claimed he trusted them to do. Here he lied to Congress, claiming it was reasonable and safe to fund research in China because the scientists could be expected to behave according to science standards.
  • Fauci went from no mask, to mask, to double mask theater, never once actually citing any controlled, quantified testing of the face coverings he first rejected and then endorsed. This one was low-hanging fruit, an obvious experiment begging to be run in, say, defense test labs. Think protective mask design testing. Fauci avoided science like the plague.
  • Fauci directly contradicted centuries of hard-won scientific knowledge about contagion containment through quarantine, both internal and external. Shutting down entry from China was what real science indicated. Fauci lied. He gave knowingly false counsel.
  • Fauci lied through his teeth about the science of the origin of COVID-19. He did so for self-serving political reasons. He was and is a butt-covering bureaucrat, not a noble scientist. Fauci lied and people died.
  • Fauci lied about COVID-19 being somehow different from all other infectious diseases, where surviving a disease leaves you with a natural immune response, which is what every vaccine ever has sought to artificially induce. That is centuries of real medical science, starting with cowpox inoculations to prevent smallpox sickness and death.
  • Fauci lied through his teeth about gain-of-function research, about funding research in China to test the behavior of viruses manipulated to more effectively attack humans. He lied to Congress. He lied.

OR.

Fauci has been long past due for retirement, completely out of touch with real science for some years, due to his half-century isolation on a privileged professional perch. He has, for too long, had too many people saying nice things to keep dollars flowing. He did not lie because he has become divorced from reality. He is a sad little functionary, clinging to his position, who it is tragic that our political class propped up. So, President Trump took him as a given, not someone to be publicly fired, along with other functionaries, in an act of enforcing accountability for failure in pandemic response planning and execution.

You decide. Here is Fauci in 2020, already running the “science” versus “anti-science” line:

Hear about real science from Senator John Kennedy, who may only be a doctor of law (JD) but possesses a good litigator’s ability to cut through verbal fog and get to the real issues:

I leave you with two songs, summarizing Fauci’s “science:” Thomas Dolby’s 1982 hit, from the golden age of music videos, “She Blinded Me With Science” from the album The Golden Age Of Wireless, and Leonard Cohen’s song — you know the one.

    They’re all long past due for retirement!

    I don’t blame Fauci nearly as much as I blame those who listened to his prattling, and took advantage of it to increase their own fiefdoms. I knew who Fauci was (a small-minded, publicity-hungry career bureaucrat) when he had his first cover spread on, what was it, Vanity Fair?

    This applies to Biden as well.

    The bureaucracy (like the military brass at times of peace) rewards the yes-men over the competent.

    Dr. Fauci used his position to shut down the investigators of where COVID came from and derailed the use of HCQ which could have saved thousands. 

    Not only should be retired, he should be tried, convicted  and sent to Prison , if not executed for his treason.  Fauci is a mass murderer. Plain and simple.

    If Fauci goes down, his main proponent, one Bill Gates, needs to go down as well.

    Without Gates and his investment control and donation control affecting Big Media, combined with Big Pharma’s endless ads on radio and TV, the media might have acted as diligently and truthfully as it acted as recently as 1999-2000. Circa that time frame, the San Francisco Chronicle’s editors were alarmed that so many in the Bay area, especially in leafy enclaves where most individuals had ample money and education, were turning against the “vaccines are for our own good” narrative.

    They selected their best science reporters to go out to visit vaccine labs across the nation. None of these reporters were anti-vaxxers.

    But immediately upon arriving in those  labs, they discovered work surfaces crawling with bacterial matter, viral and fungal matter. Equipment being used that had not been properly sterilized. They also discovered that mandated visits by Federal oversight teams occurred infrequently, with 2 to 6 weeks’ notice to the labs’ owners.

    To its credit, SF editors not only ran with this important story – they expanded reporters’ findings into a 2 day mini story.

    No story of this magnitude of negative findings would come about today in any legacy media outlet.

    Although many of us knew an entire year ago how Fauci served as the bag boy for the gain of function end of science, delivering delivered 3 million dollars plus to Wuhan, the US media only uncovered this story recently. Although it is a relief for those of us still living & unaffected by all the lockdowns that finally Big Media  got around to it,  why the murderous delay?

    Publishing Fauci’s emails exposed  all the Big Lies & Big Deceptions that he promoted. The emails  accomplish a Great Reveal. Only all this comes too late to bring back to life Americans who were deprived of actual remedies and so were forced to undergo the often fatal cytokinetic storm the remedies would have prevented.

    The Great Fauci Reveal also will not bring back  Americans who killed themselves. In some places, suicides were almost equal to the deaths due to COVID. Last year one in 4 HS students seriously considered suicide. The middle class lost billions of $$s. Meanwhile what they lost went into coffers of companies like Pfizer, Moderna, PPE makers, & the Costco’s, WalMarts, and Amazons.

    The  fact so many of Fauci’s activities centered on making it possible to override an important health protection measure, that is, a legal stipulation that no vaccine produced in response to a contagion can evre be given emergency approval unless there is no remedy available  makes him guilty of fraud. He may not have known of ivermectin’s value in fighting COVID, but he certainly knew of HCQ’s ability as he’d authored a 2005 paper showing its efficacy against corona viruses. He should be charged with fraud & aggravated murder for each and every citizen who lost their lives due to his Evil.

    I didn’t know that. 

    But I did hear this dude say, in his mask-switching defense, that in the beginning he didn’t know for sure if the masks worked “until new data came in”, whereupon he then changed his recommendation. Because that’s what a good Scientist does, you dolts.

    Wait a second. You say you’re a scientist with 50 years experience, overseeing the work in labs across the country and world that potentially affect billions of lives, that require the most stringent safety protocols we can devise, and you don’t know if masks work??? Good God.

    Also, practically in the same breath, he said both that people shouldn’t go out and buy masks because

    1. they don’t work at all against viruses, and 
    2. so that there would be enough masks available for critical healthcare workers.

    Wait, what? You just said they don’t work. Why would the critical healthcare workers want to wear them then?

    People say he’s a nice guy. This is not a nice guy.

    All that has been said here about Fauci is true. However, it would be far easier to simply say, Fauci is a Democrat, and that would cover all of the bases. It is why he will likely remain in his position, not be dismissed or tried. Being a Democrat means you never have to say you were wrong or are sorry.

    This is the tragic error of the Trump administration. All of these people should have been fired on Jan 20 2017. Imagine the trouble Trump could have saved himself, if he had simply walked in with a completely fresh management team for the government.

    This is why they seemed so inept so leaky for the first year of the administration. Trump assumed that people working in government would be happy to be working for him, that they cared about their jobs. Like a company, if there is a take-over people are happy to continue to work for the new management. But government people are different, they dont care about their jobs, they care about the policy. IF they disagree with the policy their being tasked to implement they’ll do anything they can to undermine it – including leaking to the press – throwing up every imaginable procedural roadblock to delay, deny any progress the Trump administration could have made. Even if their tactics would ultimately cost them their jobs, they wouldnt care, they would be heroes being fired from the Trump administration, and find a cushy job consulting, NGO or academia.

    This also provided the congress the perverse incentive not to quickly confirm his nominations for agencies – for as long as they delayed, democrats were in charge of those agencies. I read somewhere that at the pace of congress was moving it would take 11 years to confirm all of Trump’s nominations to cabinet and agency posts in the administration.

    Unfortunately it seems that the Biden administration didnt have to wait for such non sense.

    I blame the Republicans for this delay. Remember, when Trump won he brought with him a majority in the House and Senate. It was the Republicans, his own party who he helped win elections, that stalled Trump’s Presidency for the first two years. They allowed the Democrats to block Trump’s nominees and, even worse, they allowed the Democrats to force a Special Counsel–Robert Mueller–to investigate the Russia hoax.

    Robert Mueller should have been relieved immediately, being a close friend of Comey and Rosenstein, he should’ve been disqualified from being special counsel.

    Good points on the republicans, So many mainstream republicans had disqualified themselves during the campaign. That only relatively unknown operators where interested in working in the Trump Administration. The cronies couldnt get themselves back into government.

    Then in 2018, 50 Republican Congresspeople resigned their office leaving the field wide open for Democrats to sweep the House. That is when the impeachment BS started. In a wild-imagination moment, one might imagine a uni-party conspiracy. But we don’t do conspiracy stuff here at Ricochet.

    Fauci is the epitome of a career DC bureaucrat.  He is, in fact, an uber-bureaucrat.  Appearing to know what you are doing, avoiding controversial positions even if you have to obfuscate or lie, keeping the funding flowing, tell the media what they would like to hear.

    I dont think there is a Uni-party conspiracy. I think people – particularly those in politics – like to be liked. I think the media has given many republicans battered wife syndrome – that many of them will do whatever they can, in an attempt to be liked by the media. Thats why there is a limited supply of republican representation on talk shows. They like their few pet republicans.

    Simplest explanation: One Big Money Party.

    Both parties continually exhibit the slogans that prove popular with their constituents.

    Neither party seems to actually attempt to accomplish anything that their constituents want.

    It is only the newly formed inner circle of radicals who now hold power on the left side of the aisle who are walking the talk about turning the US into a nation run by communist slogans, such as diversity, banning “disinformation,” ridding our society of fossil fuels and meat and dairy, and possibly our domestic pets as well.

    Exactly so. As to Fauci and the health bureaucrats, the proper time to fire/retire them was in January 2020, denouncing their failures to truly prepare, and their brain-dead collaboration with CCP tools (“Chinese scientists”), and their entirely unscientific, panicky advise/response. This is the same failure as GWBush after 9/11. He should have fired everyone on top of the intelligence community and federal law enforcement/justice.

    I don’t recall off hand.  But I think there actually were firings that were blocked.  I know there was a lot of push-back against firing… federal district attorneys I think.

    But I do know that any legitimate rationale to block normal executive orders is not needed.  I think a Hawaii federal judge blocked Trump’s first terrorist-country flight ban by saying that he had campaigned on doing it, and therefore it was politically motivated and also nefarious, and he blocked it.

    I don’t think it’s much of a jump to blocking firings of bureaucrats in the medical field as politically motivated and nefarious.
