Anthony Fauci goes nuts

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 4/4/2020 4:58:18 AM

Anthony Fauci, the medical professional at the eye of the coronavirus storm, has just come out and said the federal government should issue a national order for all Americans to stay home, stay inside, stay put. Is he nuts? Let’s rephrase: He’s nuts. On CNN, Fauci was asked by host Anderson Cooper, “Knowing the science, does it make sense to you that some states are still not issuing stay-at-home orders? I mean, whether there should be a federally mandated directive for that or not, I guess that’s more of a political question, but just scientifically, doesn’t everybody have to be on the same page with this stuff?” And Fauci said — yep.

Dr. Fauci has an agenda and it's not the coronavirus. He's a very destructive little man. Fire him and his queen (Brix). Bring Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Stephen Smith on board as part of the Health Team. Dr. Smith was on Laura Ingram's show telling that the anti-malaria drug is working.

Bingo. There's no such thing as "Doctor's orders." They are not our superior officers, and we are not under their authority. Doctors provide diagnostic and prescriptive advice; they do not give orders to free citizens. Furthermore, doctors are bound by an oath to prevent harm, which means their advice is often biased by an over-abundance of caution. And, sometimes, they are just flat wrong. In my time on this Earth, I've watched doctors rotate their opinions 180 degrees on key health issues. For example, scientific research does not support the opinion that lowering sodium lowers the risk of heart disease. Yet try to find a doctor who knows that. We need to take what doctors say with an appropriately-sized grain of salt.

Excellent article. Fauci speaks for the medical system and specifically the patients, a small fraction of the population, that are or will be seriously sick. He wants the rest of us to be controlled by their needs. This is the tyranny of the minority. Meanwhile, to comply, the rest of us are being financially destroyed and our rights of travel and association are being suspended. In medical terms, that is like withering the rest of the body to save one hand. Cancer in a leg sometimes requires the leg be removed. You don't throw away the rest of the body to save the leg. And it can be applied to almost everything. 30,000 people die in car accidents. We should ban cars to save these people! Some people die skiing every year. We should ban skiing to save those people. Cooking starts fires that kill people. No more cooking. Industrial accidents kill people. Industry must be shut down. Farm accidents maim and kill people. No more farming. Some people that go walking fall, hit their heads, and die. Don't walk. Even walking at home occasionally kills people. We need to sit quietly in our chairs and just "safely" exist. Fauci's logic, reductio ad absurdum. Living exposes us all to the threat of its cessation. We make accommodations that certain threats that cause deaths to some are tolerated for the ability of all the rest to live and live fuller lives. The accommodations strike a necessary balance. The balance that we are seeking FOR THE MOMENT is that we are unprepared for a severe medical crisis. We need to buy time to create space and gather supplies needed for treatment. We are also trying to determine effective treatment protocols. We are using social distancing to buy us time. However, looking at the progression curve of different countries practicing different policies concerning distancing, it seems like social distancing may have had little effect. THAT will be something to know for the future. Right now, epidemiologists are pushing the policy. Does it work? Trump is required to find the right balance for the WHOLE Country. Some people will get sick. Some will die. Most will live on, hopefully not destroyed by the good doctor Fauci's efforts to save them.

We are seeing what it would be like if medical doctors ran the country. Its not sustainable. For doctors, public safety comes first and everything else is secondary. They overreact and are draconian. They are shutting down everything. They are killing the economy and don't care. The Democrats and their lefty allies love it. The longer this goes on, the worse it will get. If it goes on long enough, it will take decades to recover. At this point, I want to see one thing from Trump: A plan to reopen America. We cannot go on like this. We have to show people there is a way to go about with their normal lives without the fear of contracting a virus. You cannot tell people to stay home indefinitely.

Fauci had Deep State written all over him from the word go. I've had some good doctors and some bad ones but one thing they had in common was that it was impossible to actually work if they were delivering speeches and appearing on TV a minimum of 12 hrs a day. Like Obama and so many others, Fauci clearly believes were are a government with a nation attached not the other way round. And he is convinced that Big Brother is benevolent but omnipotent. Finally, I think every conceivable question has been asked. The inquiries remain the same but now the answers are shifting. It's CYA season in DC and as usual its duration is 365 days.

here we go again! Fauci is a communicable disease specialist. If he said anything other than yes to the question about staying home, he would be unfaithful to his specialty. When he was heading up the government approach to aIds, he could have said, no homosexual sex of any kind, to stop the spread of the disease. But he did not - for practical and political reasons. The use of condoms was encouraged, and C. Everett Koop, surgeon general, gave that uncomfortable advice to 'avoid being the recipient of anal sex' causing americans with little children to squirm. Instead of the traditional 'mommy, where to babies come from?' there was the inevitable 'mommy, what is anal sex?' sparsely populated states without stay at home orders will experience Kung Flu. but agriculture waits for no one. cows have to be fed and milked. Livestock have to go to market to be butchered. fields have to be plowed. crops have to be planted.

By listening closely, I think what I am concluding is that this virus will make its way through the country and our only goal is to make it go slowly and drag this out so our hospitals don't have to have us all come at the same time. (picture pulling a bandaid off very slowly) But Fauci wanting to shut this country down until it has completely passed through the entire country is insane! My doctor would like for me to take the cholesterol meds that give me 10 migraines a month, but I get to choose to take some risk and live a life worth living. The question here is whether our government is going to take away from us the right to choose to take some risk in order to have a life worth living.

FTA "So when Fauci calls for a national order to keep every man, woman and child in America at home, behind closed doors, for the next 30 days or longer" Didn't he say everyone should stay home until there are no new cases (which would be never)? Didn't he also say 2-3 months back that we don't need to worry about the Wuhon virus, we need to be concerned about flu?

The problem with these well-paid bureaucrats (that's all Fauci is, when you get right down to it) is that their generous pay and benefits will continue, while other Americans suffer. Bureaucrats love these situations, where they get their 15 minutes of fame and power. Let American who can work, work! We have learned what measures to take when we go out, or to work. It's been explained thousands of times now. Bureaucrats look at us as if we are children, who don't have a brain!

Following is a timeline of Fauci's wildly gyrating advice to the nation: 01/21/20 Fauci tells Newsmax TV that "But this is not a major threat for the people of the United States. 03/15/20 Dr Anthony Fauci told Jon Karl on ABC that the US could expect up to 1.7 million coronavirus deaths. 03/20/20 Fauci referred to the reported success of COVID19 was merely 'anecdotal'. 03/25/20 Fauci endorses hydroxychloroquine: "Of Course’ I Would Prescribe Chloroquine to Coronavirus Patients" 03/29/20 Fauci downgraded his worst case scenario to 100,000 to 200,000 US coronavirus deaths. 04/02/20 Fauci says that social distancing restrictions should remain in place until no new cases, no more deaths. 04/03/20 Fauci tells Anderson Cooper on CNN that Feds should override all states, and issue stay-at-home orders Fauci is a reckless fear-mongerer, who wouldn't know data if it hit him in the face (which it has!)

I don't think Fauci is nuts. He's a smart guy, but I do think he's become drunk off of all the attention he's getting from the media. Trump would be wise to order the good doctor to stay off of the chat show circuit. And "Life long bureaucrats tend to become liberal?" I take umbrage with that comment. I'm living proof that that isn't necessarily so. 30 years a DoD civilian employee, and no one would dare call me a liberal.

Our country is now being run by an unelected, unaccountable bureaucrat from a community of professionals that kills 250,000 people a year. We The People have lost most of our basic rights as listed in the Bill of Rights. In fact, the only people still allowed any access to those rights is the media, the one group who routinely abuses that right. In fact, most of us WILLINGLY gave up those rights. This will not end by Dr. Fauci and his kind pulling back. They will never do that. We must end it. Bottom line, for the sake of the future of our country, we must be strong enough to really look at the statistics and models, and draw realistic conclusions, not Armageddon scenarios. And, we will have to be willing to risk, not only getting infected, but passing that infection along. Until the people do that, we will stay enslaved. Unfortunately, as I look around me, I don’t see happening any time soon in the populace. I knew the world was motivated by fear, but I had no idea just how much.

Of course the CVD-19 is dangerous, but what about all the other maladies people have that CANNOT be taken care of and in fact are worsening. My wife had surgery canceled the day before it was scheduled because the hospital was not performing operations on anyone over 70; Now the hospital is closed to all surgeries, and in fact is taking in Covid-19 patients from NYC because Cuomo doesn't know his a** from his elbow. A celebrity Governor who turned down 16K ventilators and spent the money, many 100's of millions, on FAILED left-wing pie-in-the-sky useless adventures. A 1,000 be hospital ship sits virtually empty at the dock. Burearcracy at it's evil best. How many people will get sicker or die because they could not get the treatment they need, or are suffering while waiting ? It is disgraceful. I have written the WH 4 times suggesting they dismiss the two data driven modelers who are leading the President astray, towards destroying people's lives , and to bring in infectious disease medical physicians who live in the real World.

Agree with #1. Bring on Dr. Stephen Smith who has hands-on experience with real patients and people not charts and models. Smith has a track record that goes back to his father, Dr. Leon Smith who is a legend and known as a great physician in the field of infectious diseases. Dr. Fauci is a medical science expert and a good statistician but decisions maker he's not. I'm confident President Trump will lead us out of this traumatic scenario soon. There has to be sense of rationality to administrating this crisis. Not a one size fits all for 300 million people.

The hospitals are not overwhelmed. Even in New York the Hospital Ship is not used, and the Samaritan’s Purse field hospital in Central Park almost empty. The ever-changing Fauci/Bill Gates models were wrong. Hydroxychloroquine and face masks for all; back to work by Easter. Doctors cannot govern a nation, this is just another seasonal flu. Fauci knows perfectly well we do not yet have a vaccine even for SARS, so a vaccine will not be on time, this epidemic will burn away before a vaccine is available, as it happened with Zika and Ebola. Concentrate on proven drugs such as hydroxychloroquine, both prophylactic and therapeutic, and Remdecivir.

Engineers design and implement solutions. Scientists design and run experiments. Fauci is a scientist. He designed and is now running an elaborate mitigation experiment. It will solve nothing. All it will do is generate data for him to analyze. Science has its place, but should never be let anywhere near policy making. Let the engineers have it, if there are even any around Trump. Everyone on the stage always sounds like a scientist. Even Birx. Who are the engineers? The doctors on the front line doing combat medicine and trying treatments off label. seeing what works, neither asking nor waiting for anyone's approval. The military moving supplies and building hospitals. The logistics people who can ship and allocate and adjust on a dime. Private sector. Need to move 1,000 ventilators fast? Call the military or Fed Ex or UPS or .... you get the picture. God help us. And God save us from the scientists.

Dr. Fauci serves those who pay him, and he has more loyalty to Gates and Soros than he does to the nation or Trump. He is a big Hildabeest supporter from way back, and that is never good. He is a globalist little ghoul and needs to be let go from Trump's team. Given the facial expressions of both Trump and Pence from this last week, I think that time is drawing very close. This man is a bureaucrat, a lab rat with no clue about how the real world works, and he proves it every single darn time he opens his mouth and shoves a foot in.

Fauci serves himself and his own greed for power right now. If he truly served the patients, he would not have blown off the malaria drugs cocktail as being anecdotal and not working. How is that serving the patients? He serves another master called globalism, and that is in direct opposition to what Trump wants to do. But it sure serves Soros and Gates well, doesn't it?

Like all egg-head professors, Dr Fauci suffers from a myopia that prevents them from seeing the total destruction if their fuzzy-thinking ideas are implemented! I can remember years back some "disease specialist" being asked about what the public should do to prevent some sort of temporary brown tide that was making some vulnerable swimmers sick. His advice? Don't go in the water! Ever. Can you imagine? Yup --- he thought people should be banned from fishing, swimming, going to the beach, etc. The hell with the hotels, fishermen, restaurants, etc. It's where they come from. Do not take any professor seriously about anything! They know nothing about earning a dollar or the value of it once earned. If America can be this easily tipped over --- the Chinese are watching --- the next one will be a doozy.

Easy for him to say the entire U.S. economy is "non-essential" since he gets a paycheck no matter what.

Dr. Fauci believes shutting down the entire US economy is inconvenient? I'm sure he is a great infectious disease doctor, but I wouldn't ask him to manage my 401-K portfolio. And that's what he is doing, managing the entire US economic portfolio. I hope and pray Trump puts an end to this soon. But, now he's caught between a rock and a hard place. He has listened to the SCIENCE and it is bringing economic destruction.

Dr. Fauci jumped the shark yesterday when he said a continued nationwide shutdown was necessary even though it would be "inconvenient." Inconvenient. No, it's wreaking catastrophic damage on the economy, and not incidentally causing an enormous amount of health effects and deaths itself. Fauci has no sense of proportion, no expertise at weighing or comparing risks, and should absolutely not be dictating policy. Yet he's treated as conveying the word of God himself. God help us. It also occurs to me, almost as an afterthought, that Dr. Fauci may have mixed motives (even if he himself is not fully aware of them). I don't doubt that Fauci and crew want to alleviate physical suffering, nor do I doubt that, scientifically, isolating every single human from every other single human would eventually stop any disease in its tracks. But it's impossible not to notice that the CDC has NEVER had so much prominence before, NEVER commanded so many national resources before, and will likely be granted an astonishing expansion of both budget and personnel. It is in Fauci's (and the CDC's) professional interest to hype this crisis as much as possible, to have an impact on as many people as possible, and to draw the process and pain out as much as possible.

Faucci is unfamiliar with the Constitution, specifically, the 10th amendment: "Amendment X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people." The Federal Government has the authority to regulate INTERSTATE commerce, but has no authority to regulate intrastate commerce, Any Federal Government ORDER for people to stay home would be unconstitutional.

Media Fail of the Day 6 replies

To paraphrase the great Will Rogers, it’s hard to single out the most glaring media embarrassment of the day when you have the whole media competing to see who can be the most stupid.* But the winner is this Associated Press story, as it appeared in a New Orleans paper yesterday: (Snip for graphic of newspaper clipping) And yet our media overlords wonder why the idea of “fake news” has so much traction with the public. * The original Will Rogers quip is: “It’s no trouble being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.” Of course, it morning out here on the Left Coast

You cannot have a social upheaval like the Bat Gobbler Flu and expect everything to go back to exactly how it was before the ChiCom’s fetish for eating weird Schiff turned the world upside down. Pressure has a way of changing what it is applied to. Sometimes it makes diamonds, other times it makes things go splat. No one expected something like this to come out of leftist field and derail our booming economy. We wanted to let the good times roll, but no one saw them rolling right off a cliff. The pandemic and the response are going to not change some things much at all.
White House Officials Counter Pelosi’s Claim
That Trump’s WHO Cuts Are ‘Illegal’

White House officials are refuting Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s claim that cutting funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) is “illegal.” Officials in the Office of Management and Budget explained to the Daily Caller that WHO’s funding was approved by Congress as part of a larger lump sum statutorily allocated for “international organizations.” The White House has discretion over which organizations to send that money to, with past decisions resulting in the budgeting WHO received. An official explained that the funding allocation is broken down into two groups: assessed dues and voluntary contributions made at the agency level.

Anyone who doubts that Barack Obama has a sense of humor should take a look of his endorsement of Joe Biden to be president of the United States. Really, it’s a masterly performance, and delivered, mirabile dictu, with a straight face. Try it yourself. Grab a mirror. Assume your best ‘I’m-being-serious-and-sincere’ expression. Then say out loud that Joe Biden would bring ‘leadership guided by knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace’ to the Capital.

The federal government has issued constantly evolving criteria for Americans to return to work safely during the coronavirus crisis, while various governors this week began adding their own layers of rules for reopening states for business — a process increasingly leading to partisan disputes in state capitals. The guidance has ranged from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying on March 7 that “contact tracing” — finding every sick person and figuring out who they’ve interacted with — was recommended but “not practical or achievable in all situations,” to Tuesday, when California Gov. Gavin Newsom said contact tracing will be a key benchmark for reopening

California will be the first state to send money to illegal immigrants who did not qualify for assistance under the $2.2 trillion federal coronavirus stimulus package passed last month. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday announced the allocation of $75 million in taxpayer funds for $500 payments to 150,000 adult immigrants who are reeling from the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. “We feel a deep sense of gratitude for people that are in fear of deportations that are still addressing essential needs of tens of millions of Californians,” said Newsom.

There is no shortage of food, according to food industry leaders, yet there are empty shelves in grocery stores. Why is that? The reason goes beyond the fact that people began to hoard items last month. There is also a problem with distribution and the fact that Americans are cooking at home instead of going out to eat. When the economy began to slow last month, shoppers began hoarding canned goods and cleaning items. The hoarding of toilet paper caught many retailers by surprise.

NEW YORK -- The major banks in the U.S. are anticipating a flood of loan defaults as households and business customers take a big financial hit from the coronavirus pandemic. JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs raised the funds set aside for bad loans by nearly $20 billion combined in the first quarter, earnings reports released over the past two days show. And Wall Street expects that figure may go even higher next quarter, a possibility bank executives acknowledged on earnings conference calls.

"[T]he Beijing government put together a video, Laura, that called me a liar and called on me to resign," Hawley said. "So I figure I'm on the right path, and we are going to keep pushing ahead."

He waited until Easter to return. Naturally. The One has risen. He is Risen, indeed! Ex-President Barack Obama — the man responsible for the presidency of Donald J. Trump — has finally emerged from the tomb. Actually, more like a chick from a spring egg. Or a goose egg, like his presidency. To switch up analogies, Mr. Obama has arrived on the battlefield just in time to shoot the wounded. The Democratic primary is over. Bernie Sanders is already waving the white flag. The multitudes once seeking the Democratic nomination have all surrendered.

Yesterday’s Washington Post carried an attack on South Dakota and its governor, Kristi Noem, under the headline South Dakota’s Governor resisted ordering people to stay home. Now it has one of the nation’s largest coronavirus hot spots. The Post’s article is popular on Twitter, as liberal “blue checks” use it to express their hope that lots of South Dakotans die as punishment for their temerity in electing a Republican governor. As governors across the country fell into line in recent weeks, South Dakota’s top elected leader stood firm: There would be no statewide order to stay home.

Law enforcement leaders across the U.S. have used the COVID-19 crisis to free prisoners that they ardently wanted to free anyway. Even as the worst of the plague has passed over the land, elected leaders are still freeing crooks from the jails. This isn't as a favor to the rest of us, it's in service to the elected leaders' social justice friends and personal (or George Soros's) political agendas. This brings us to hapless LA Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, who announced on Monday that LA County's jail population is lighter by 25% thanks to him!

Speaking to Elle, Abrams reaffirmed her interest in joining the Democrat Party’s White House ticket, stating she would be “honored,” to do so and “would be an excellent running mate.” “I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating typically ignored communities. I have a strong history of executive and management experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. I’ve spent 25 years in independent study of foreign policy,” the Georgia Democrat told the magazine.

As part of its coronavirus relief package, Congress passed the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), a $349 billion fund to help businesses with fewer than 500 employees. (snip) Pelosi seems determined once again to put her agenda ahead of “the little people’s” needs. This time, she’s refusing to let the Democrats agree to Mitch McConnell’s clean bill: Instead, Democrats want McConnell to acquiesce to jumps in funding for several entities that received billions under the CARES act, including health care systems, and to demands to reconfigure the PPP system so that minority and female entrepreneurs are given priority in lending.

Two Democratic congressmen have proposed expanding the coronavirus relief program to give Americans $2,000 a month until the economy recovers. The checks would go to individuals making less than $130,000 or couples who earn less than $260,000 and would be steady source of income, unlike the first round of individual checks, which, at up to $1,200, were a one-time deposit. The money would cease when unemployment returns to its pre-coronavirus levels. Representatives Tim Ryan of Ohio and Ro Khanna of California said their Emergency Money for the People Act would provide more relief as workers face pay cuts, layoffs and furloughs

As the Trump administration tries to figure out when to reopen the economy, and Democrats try to blame President Donald Trump for every coronavirus death, there’s another question lurking in the background. What if we learn that trillions of dollars in economic costs from the coronavirus shutdown bought us little or nothing in terms of public health? As the disease progresses and our understanding of it increases, that possibility grows. Consider these facts: Death projections were wildly exaggerated. On March 16, epidemiologists at Imperial College London predicted that 2.2 million could die here if the country didn’t impose draconian lock-down

As week 5 of the Wuhan Chinese Bat Flu shutdown gets underway I find myself entertaining brief moments of optimism. I've been tending toward pessimism regarding everyone being able to go outside and have any fun again, fairly convinced that we might be out of commission until the fall. There must have been something in the delicious homebrew that my neighbor social-distance dropped at my door for Easter because I found myself in a couple of conversations on Monday about making plans when we get the freedom to roam again. Dare to dream, my friends! When I was first asked what I wanted to do most when we're allowed to congregate,
