What If I Trust Science and
Don't Trust Dr. Fauci?

Original Article

I wanted to trust Dr. Anthony Fauci. I really did. Early in the pandemic, I took the advice of Dr. Drew Pinsky and listened to what he said. Maybe I listened too closely. Lockdowns leave a person a lot of free time, and a Google machine and keyboard are an excellent way to pass the time. This week on a Department of Health and Human Services podcast, Dr. Fauci made the following comment: “One of the problems we face in the United States is that unfortunately, there is a combination of an anti-science bias that people are — for reasons that sometimes are …

Those that pegged Dr. Faustus as a bureaucrat/theoretician instead of practicing M.D. were correct.

When the emails of Hillary were found they found a couple from fauci to her. He was praising her and declaring his unconditional support for her. He is a well known political hack. He made a huge mess of the aids research all to benefit certain drug companies that he has connections with. The COVID pandemic has also been manipulated to benefit certain pharmaceutical companies. The so called remdesevir is an Ebola medicine. The studies for Ebola were stopped for its high mortality rate. The preliminary results revealed maybe a 2-3 days shorting of the disease in covid. It is very expensive and Hydroxychloroquine is dirt cheap. That is why this fraud of fauci is pushing it. They need to expose him. He lies every time he opens his mouth.

Fauci has an estimated net worth of $10 Million Dollars. Why is no one asking how he amassed such a fortune on a government salary which is who he worked for all of his life?

This little man is very dangerous. He is self centered and destructive. I do not trust him or Brix. If true #3, someone needs to look into his financial background. Unless he inherited it or made some very wise stock market moves or had a #1 book, it does not sound right. The most he can make on a government salary is about 170,000. Living in a high cost area you would think he has some high expenses. I'm a numbers person, follow the money and see how this guy made his fortune.

Hydroxychloroquine was demonized by the media because Trump touted it. The Deep State followed up by denouncing it any way they could, even thought the doctor in the upstate NY Hasidic community had successfully treated 120 patients with that drug with zinc. The only way things will get done in Washington is if the Democrats allow it. You can make book on that! Furthermore, there was a prophylactic effect when used in conjunction with zinc according to the article. But when Trump does it, it’s no good.

The level of misestimation is staggering. Hard to believe it is an honest error. IMO what we suspect is not lost on the President. The true test will come when the clamoring for a second lockdown starts. He will show his true colors.

Long-time bureaucrats more often than not have an agenda and it's usually political. I now believe that nothing was true during four months of daily briefings. If left to Fauci, all 57 states would still be locked down. Any new developments connected to Bill Gates should be firmly rejected.

Excellent article. Thanks for posting, OP. The lockdown was never supposed to reduce the number of cases. It was supposed to extend the time frame in which they happened to avoid overwhelming our ability to treat them. Since our healthcare systems were never at risk of being overwhelmed, the lockdown was a massive mistake. Underlying this mistake was an obvious and idiotic error. Fauci and Co. continuously confused Case Fatality Rate with mortality rate. Case Fatality Rate is the number of confirmed cases who die. Since we were mainly testing those who were either already sick, that "Case Fatality Rate" was meaningless in predicting total likely deaths. Yet Health Experts™(H/T Nurse Lennox), kept talking about a 4% death rate to justify their actions. Anyone talking about extending this lockdown one more minute is either an idiot, a liar, or a social saboteur. Fauci may be all three. If, as I have heard, Fauci holds patents that profit from denying the efficacy of cheaper treatments, he should be sued out of existence. If it turns out that Fauci lied, and people died as a result, he is also a criminal and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. And our new Bonfire of the Vanities should begin with the reputations of "Health Experts" like Anthony Fauci.

This media hound loves being on TV. He's found it intoxicating. Over the last several weeks maybe a month, Fauci has been absent from the lime light. This did not sit well with media hound Fauci. So the other day he came out and started with his everybody will die speech about the NFL playing in the fall. So for a few days, media hound Fauci had his media fix as every idiot broadcaster splashed his face and words across the screen. My cousin, who is all in on the lockdown until a vaccine is found, can't believe I called Fauci and idiot. I explained that Fauci thinks he's running the country, and his word is law, and I went on to tell my cousin how many times this clown has been wrong. The call ended there.

A book Scientocracy is about basing public policy on science; Too often reactionary based on bad or incomplete science as appears to be in Fauci's recommendations. It can be s rather tedious, detailed read at times but revealing. I wasn't aware that AGore ( w/McGovern) was a signifcant influence on the government recommending / attempting to drastically reduce salt usage. And how did he justify it? Yep, "consensus" science. Global Warming wasn't his first rodeo.

I knew this guy was a snake when, early on, he dismissed the first, small study from France on hydroxychloroquine. I couldn’t believe my ears, as he tossed aside even a glimmer of hope, during those first early days of panic and confusion. He could’ve said that, while there was more work to be done, all protocols would be looked at, but he just shut it down. Boom. No discussion. It was so obvious that something more sinister was going on. He is one (of many) that I hope to live long enough to see them get their karmic payback.

Bingo! I do trust science. Science done in a sense of discovering facts and learning about what can be usefully predicted from those facts had been my life's work in engineering analysis and simulation work. But Fake Science, done with a political motive, and pretending to predict the future without the actual necessary REAL scientific underpinnings, is just political theater, and a dangerous version because many who are unable to understand the difference between real science (which has very definite limits) and Fake Science, which has the unlimited ability to serve politicians and be used as a hammer to gain them power and money. A hell of a lot of what is sold as "science" today is pure hockum, just as much science as the old traviling medicine shows of the old west. Get your Dr. Mann's Rheumatism and Global Warming Elixir" guaranteed to fix whatever ails you, real or imagined, just give me your money and let me lead you down the path to slavery.

Science is a discipline and a philosophy. It teaches to observe, to test, and to theorize, dispassionately seeking the truth. Scientists are humans who utilize science. They are the very reason that testing MUST be done because they are not dispassionate, are fallible and eager to be praised or paid for the perceptions they can provide. We see this in all the fad diets and grim warnings about this or that food. It's difficult to separate the garbage predetermined results from results of true research. And NOTHING is ever decided by consensus. If someone says it is, it should be immediately suspect. The search for truth has been sabotaged again and again by such consensus. It was once consensus that heavier things fell faster than lighter things. It was consensus that dinosaur bones were the remains of biblical giants. It was consensus that rockets wouldn't work in space, because there was no atmosphere to push against. It is the consensus that Climate science is settled. Is Dr. Dr. Fauci a scientist? Only examination of his reported discoveries, by independent critics (That is essential - you must wish to prove him wrong!) can provide us with data to consider. Is he?

I don't trust science OR Fauci. Fauci is a political hack. That's a given. Science is not the golden standard so many believe it is. It changes constantly, even when no politics are involved. Whats true today will not be true tomorrow, and what was gospel yesterday was be debunked today. Looks at all the drugs we used to take religiously that all of a sudden are deadly poisons and have to be stopped. In the 1920's radiation was a miracle cure all. All the science said so, until it killed everyone. Asbestos was once harmless, until it wasn't. Alzheimers used to be caused by aluminum cookware, until it wasn't. Trusting science is just a little more accurate than trusting your gut instinct.

On Sunday, countless liberals took to Twitter, declaring #ObamaDayJune14th, that it’s #ObamaAppreciationDay and that Obama was #BestPresidentEver. Why? Because June 14 is President Trump’s birthday! How clever! And these trending hashtags accompanied thousands of unironic tweets expressing nostalgia for the Obama years and appreciation for Obama, their lord and savior.

There is an old saying that if you don’t blow your own horn, there won’t be any music. Gov. Andrew Cuomo obviously is a believer, having ended his streak of 111 daily coronavirus briefings with another blast of praise for himself. From March 2 until Friday, he held forth in marathon appearances that boosted his political ratings. Early on he hit an incredible 87 percent approval in the state and an April poll found that 56 percent of national Democrats wanted to dump Joe Biden and make Cuomo the presidential nominee. That support reflected how skillfully the governor performed in front of the camera.
