Dr. Fauci and me

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 3/28/2020 7:43:54 AM

Last Saturday, I wrote a blog that focused on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House Coronavirus Task Force’s leading medical expert, and his long background, especially as he shepherded the government’s four decade long war on HIV-AIDS. The article touched a deep nerve, helping to inspire a Washington Post article that ran yesterday: "As Trump signals readiness to break with experts, his online base assails Fauci. A cadre of right-wing outlets is laying the groundwork for Trump to disregard experts on his own coronavirus task force." For a time on Friday, the article was the second-most read at the Post's website

Mr. Chowka is spot on with his assessment of this uh..... spectacle we are witnessing. He is also correct in calling Fauci stooge and his rescinding the slur. Fauci is much worse than a stooge.

How about a GOP sponsored bill that will require the CDC to allocate its research funds to each disease based on that disease's percentage of total deaths in the previous year.

Allow me to offer the perspective of an 81 year old . I have had two people die in my arms - a toddler, about 18 months old, injured in a car accident. I was giving first aid, but the child had a fractured skull, and brain matter was coming out of the toddler's nose. that was terribly sad. The second person was a 90 year old neighbor, who had been working in his rose garden. He was slumped over at an elevated rose bed, and my son and I wet over, and tried to help him. that, too, made me sad. But not sad the way the toddler's death made me sad. Part of God's plan is death for every one of you, and, maybe, me. And if you do not believe in God's plan, then believe in biological reality. Everything dies. Our efforts in saving, preserving, improving lives has to contain the reality of death. If I came upon the scene of a car accident, with two victims - a toddler and an 81 year old, and both were bleeding badly, I would do a triage. I would separate out the patients, and save the toddler first. The King Flu virus is remarkably, to me, looking like being under supervision of the hand of God. It skips over young people, and sort of sets its sights on old people. It has the makings of a sci-fi movie. Or a religious one.

Sooner or later we have to get back to work and back to the things we enjoy doing. It is a given that everyone that dies after the President opens up all of the things that have been closed down, every death from the Corona Virus after that will be blamed on the President. You can bet the farm on that. But we have to get back to work. The curve has been bent and some things have been learned that may save some lives. The China flu---like every other flu---has to work it's way to the end. Let go back to work and Git 'er done.

Fauci is a narrow visioned acolyte of the FDA and believes that unless the FDA signs off on something it is anecdotal and should be ignored. Meanwhile, we are seeing good results in France from this cocktail of drugs during the crisis. Fauci is indeed a dupe for the Left, and Trump needs to part company with him, but he also needs to explain ON camera WHY. The guy might be a decent researcher, but he has been infected long ago with something far worse than CV, and that is liberalism and admiration for Hildabeest.

I'm not buying all this "Fauci hate". Ugly behavior at this time. Disagee on policy, sure. This is way past that. Do I think that WAY too much money is spent on what is essentially a homosexual-only disease? Yes.

Before President Trump’s State of the Union address in February, most Americans outside of Michigan had never heard of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. When she gave the Democrat response to Trump’s tour de force, she impinged ever so slightly on the popular consciousness before lapsing back into obscurity. Now, perhaps because she’s hoping to be the token woman Groping Joe Biden names as his Vice President, Whitmer is back in the media. It’s doubtful, though, that Americans will be impressed with a woman who has such a vendetta against the President that she’s willing to withhold life-saving medicine and to lie.

Now that Italy has recorded its 10,000th coronavirus death, a third of the global total, and nearly a thousand just yesterday, Italians are questioning the value of globalism, and more specifically asking what good its European Union membership does it. Sentiment is soaring for getting out and going it alone. Britain did it, why not Italy? Locals are now burning European Union flags, and Italian politicians are ramping up the talk about getting the heck out of the European Union altogether. I suspected this was going to happen during the Italian balcony singing event, noting that most of the songs sung were classical Italian songs, not global pop hits.

In February, China reported that chloroquine could fight coronavirus, which led to a burst of media optimism. However, when President Trump said he hoped that chloroquine might cure coronavirus, the media instantly turned on the drug. Unsurprisingly, the media were wrong. The lead doctor of the latest study on the drug says chloroquine is so helpful it would be unethical to deny it to control groups. (snip) The media reported on Dr. Fauci’s more cautious view as if he had said Trump was lying, instead of merely saying that there were still studies to be done. One Arizona outlet even called Trump’s optimism “bizarre, even delusional.”

This is why Democrats/fake news media continuously seek to block Trump from communicating directly to We the People. Absurdly, they claim his tweeting is an impeachable crime.

China claims coronavirus cases are a thing of the past, there are no new cases, and as Reuters touted the other day, has now begun its "return to normal." Here's normal: A huge protest march swept out of China’s Hubei province on Friday, with thousands of angry residents pouring across a bridge into neighboring Jiangxi province and clashing with police. The capital city of Hubei province is Wuhan, ground zero for the coronavirus pandemic. That's part of a comprehensive report from Breitbart describing the explosive state of unrest in China's big central province, based on Chinese citizen journalist reports

While President Trump closed the US border against entry from China at the end of January, his overall instinct was right. The CCP virus was nasty, but no worse than a supercharged flu. Health professionals overwhelmed Trump and his inner circle with doomsday scenarios, bullied by panic obsessed virologists and epidemiologists -- begging for attention and copying the alarmist playbook from the climate/global warming extremists, allied with the MSM Trump-haters. And now the government has completely suffocated economic demand, creating a depression

As America teeters on the brink of a planned catastrophic economic collapse, it is time to rethink our response to the deadly coronavirus that is afflicting us. There has to be an exit strategy out of this national suicide attempt that is being accomplished through lockdowns and the imposition of quasi-martial law. Responsible, enlightened governance requires tradeoffs that don’t look like one-size-fits-all collective punishment imposed from above. We got to this place because wildly overstated projections by monomaniacally focused experts stampeded policymakers into ordering draconian crackdowns on the general population, instead of focusing on the most vulnerable

The COVID-19 pandemic can be used to illustrate two problems that are both more destructive than the virus.

Pelosi said, “First let me say how sad it is that even since the president’s signing of the bill, the number of deaths reported has doubled from 1,000 to 2,000 in our country. This is such a very, very sad time for us. We should be taking every precaution. The president, his denial at the beginning, was deadly.

Prince Harry 'regretted' having to stand down from his role in the military, and felt 'forced into it' after stepping down from royal duties, a source has claimed. The Duke of Sussex, 35, who decided to step back from the limelight with Meghan Markle, 38, and 10-month-old Archie after being subjected to intense scrutiny which brought back painful memories of Princess Diana's death, is said to have been apologetic about giving up his post as Captain General of The Royal Marines.

Whatever you think about President Trump and his response to this global pandemic that sparked from a Chinese “wet market” selling wildlife, you cannot exactly be heartened to behold the response offered by Democrats. The party’s presumed nominee, former Vice President Joseph R.

Poll of the week: A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that President Donald Trump's approval rating among all adults in 48%, while his disapproval rating is 46%. Trump scores a very similar 49% approval rating and 47% disapproval rating with registered voters. What's the point: There's no doubt now that Trump is experiencing a bump in his popularity following his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The ABC News/Washington Post poll is quite similar to the Monmouth University poll that came out earlier this week, for instance. But what is interesting to me is that Trump's jump is coming disproportionality from non-voters. Normally Trump does considerably better among voters than among adults.
