Dr. Fauci

Thought of the day

Featured image Steve Hayward has his thought of the day scheduled to go up this afternoon, so I will claim this either as yesterday’s thought of the day or as today’s early edition. My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 11, 2022 Musk packs a couple of thoughts into that declaration, both of them worthy of recognition. He responded respectfully to one critic who took him up on his refusal »

Fauci unmasked

Featured image On the day before Thanksgiving the fallacious Dr. Fauci was put under oath for a deposition. Dr. Fauci was deposed in the lawsuit brought by Missouri and Louisiana against the federal government for colluding with Big Tech social media companies to suppress free speech bearing on the epidemic. Fauci was of course the General Buck Turgidson of the epidemic: “Gentlemen, gentlemen, we can’t have free speech — this is the »

Look back in anger

Featured image You may recall the 1964 fantasy film The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao. Steven Mosher’s New York Post column now gives us the 5 fallacies of Dr. Fauci. (He could easily have made it 7 or more, for that matter.) According to Mosher, the 5 fallacies of Dr. Fauci include contact tracing, failing to protect the vulnerable, closing the schools, mistakes on natural immunity, and funding Chinese labs. This one »

The longest goodbye

Featured image The fallacious Dr. Fauci told Politico that he contemplated continuing to hold office leading the NIAID and advising President Biden until the end of “the Biden administration term.” I took that as a rehearsal for retirement. After all, the guy is 81. He is long past his sell-by date and has inflicted incalculable damage on the United States. Yet Fauci views himself as the indispensable man. He may have to »

Fauci’s long goodbye

Featured image If self-love could kill you, the fallacious Dr. Fauci would be a goner. As it is, he contemplates continuing to hold office leading the NIAID and advising President Biden until the end of “the Biden administration term,” as he put it in an interview with Politico reported yesterday. The good news is that he will be leaving. The bad news is that his leaving is long overdue. The funny news »

WHO’s next to last

Featured image Today’s Tablet Scroll draws attention to the recent Daily Mail story on the origins of the Coronavirus plague. I have slightly edited Tablet’s summary and commentary below, but it makes the points I would want to make: World Health Organization director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus privately told a senior European official that he believes the COVID-19 virus was accidentally released by the Wuhan virology laboratory in China, according to a report »

Kevin Roche: Schadenfauci

Featured image My friend Kevin Roche holds down the fort at the invaluable Healthy Skeptic site. I turned to Kevin yesterday to ask him a question that has been on my mind: Is it wrong to be happy that Dr. Fauci has contracted Covid? He took my call at his lake house up north and promptly responded to my question in the column below (also posted here at Kevin’s site). A friend »

Fauci Was Paid for Undermining Trump

Featured image Yesterday I wrote about the fact that NIH officials including Anthony Fauci have been paid hundreds of millions of dollars in patent royalties by pharmaceutical companies and others, raising obvious conflict of interest issues which the NIH has covered up rather than trying to address. But it gets worse: remember how Fauci constantly undermined President Trump during the early stages of the covid epidemic? It turns out that he was »

Facing Fauci’s fury

Featured image Reason has posted Nick Gillespie’s timely interview with Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. Jay-B was a co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration, a voice of sanity, and therefore a target of the public health authorities. The intersecting themes of the interview revisit the issues that we repeatedly took up during the pandemic. Gillespie touches on them in his summary: I sat down with Bhattacharya to talk about what it was like »

Did Fauci Start the Pandemic?

Featured image That is a deliberately provocative post title. I don’t actually think that Anthony Fauci is mostly responsible for the coronavirus, but I do think that 1) the U.S. government had stopped funding research that made viruses more lethal or more transmissible because such research was considered dangerous; 2) Dr. Fauci was the main driver behind a change in policy in 2017–a change that some of his superiors, at least, say »

Anthony Fauci, Political Thug

Featured image Recently disclosed emails show how political hack Anthony Fauci was enlisted to bully scientific voices on the coronavirus into silence: New emails released by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request revealed that last year, outgoing National Institutes of Health Dir. Dr. Francis Collins instructed Dr. Anthony Fauci to carry out a “quick and devastating” takedown of The Great Barrington Declaration, a document authored by experts who advocated for herd »

Now He Tells Us!

Featured image Many have pointed out that the same Biden administration officials who want to fire the unvaccinated and who were on board with shutting down industries to stop the spread of covid seem to have no concern about the flood of unvaccinated, untested illegal aliens across our southern border. “That’s a different issue,” Dr. Fauci said. On Friday, Neil Cavuto caught up with Fauci and posed the question: Fauci appeared Friday »

Farewell to Fauci?

Featured image I have written that it is time for Anthony Fauci to go, while he has vowed never to quit no matter his standing with the public. It looks as though Fauci’s vow may be tested, as his reputation continues to decline. Rasmussen reports: “Most Americans Agree Dr. Fauci Has ‘Lost Credibility.’” More than 18 months into the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. government’s leading expect on the virus has lost credibility »

Fauci Fumbles Natural Immunity

Featured image Joe Biden’s unconstitutional order mandating vaccinations and testing is irrational for several reasons, not least the fact that it fails to take into account natural immunity. A CNN reporter got around to gently asking Dr. Fauci about evidence that immunity acquired by those who have had covid provides at least equal protection to a vaccine. This is no surprise, as many studies have documented the strength of natural immunity to »

About the Latest Fauci Documents

Featured image Scott wrote this morning about documents that the Intercept has obtained under the Freedom of Information Act relating to NIH funding of coronavirus research in Wuhan, China. These documents relate to two grants that the NIH gave to Ecohealth Alliance, which in turn collaborated on the Chinese research. They have been hailed by many as conclusive proof that Dr. Fauci has lied about NIH supporting gain of function research at »

What Was Fauci’s Role In the Pandemic?

Featured image Australian journalist Sharri Markson has written a book titled What Really Happened in Wuhan: the Cover-Ups, the Conspiracies and the Classified Research. The book was excerpted in today’s London Times, from which these paragraphs come: Fauci defended the scientists who had undertaken the highly controversial gain-of-function research that had prompted the global debate, saying they had “conducted their research properly and under the safest and most secure conditions”.
