Dr. Anthony Fauci is concerned that “people will not abide” by the Centers for Disease Control’s recent masking recommendations. For their part, the people have good reason to disregard the recommendations — and Fauci along with them.
After more than 50 years in government and 38 years heading the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Fauci announced his retirement at the end of 2022. With the 82-year-old still dishing it out, Americans might dial it back a few years.
At various times, Fauci recommended that people wear no masks, then one mask, and then two masks. As the Cochrane study showed in January, masks are more or less useless against COVID-19. In an appearance last week on CNN, Fauci said other studies showed otherwise but failed to name a single one.
Fauci was also a hawk on the vaccines that failed to prevent infection and transmission of COVID. Indeed, Fauci and Joe Biden, both vaccinated and boosted, have tested positive for COVID. The NIAID boss wanted children, the least vulnerable group, to get multiple vaccinations nevertheless.
Fauci funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct gain-of-function research that makes viruses more lethal and transmissible. The WIV, in turn, received shipments of deadly pathogens courtesy of Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, a Chinese national who headed the special pathogens unit at Canada’s National Microbiology Lab. In 2017 and 2018 alone, Dr. Qiu made at least five trips to the WIV.
Fauci maintained that the virus arose naturally in the wild, which is a matter of speculation, not science. The mysterious virus was able to produce new variants that Fauci said were already here and highly transmissible. And of course, that demanded more vaccinations, masking, distancing, and so forth. Like the alleged natural origin of the virus, none of this was authenticated or replicated by scientists with no ties to the NIAID, the NIH, the CDC, or Big Pharma.
Fauci is on record that he represents science. That is a strange claim for a medical doctor whose biography shows no advanced degrees in biochemistry or molecular biology. Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, inventor of the polymerase chain reaction, has said Fauci “doesn’t understand electronic microscopy and he doesn’t understand medicine. He should not be in a position like he’s in.” But he was, heading the NIAID from 1984 through 2022.
During that time, Fauci oversaw drug trials on African-American foster children in New York, forcing them to take AZT and other dangerous drugs. For the full story, read “The Real Anthony Fauci” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. And as Rebecca Culshaw contends in “The Real AIDS Epidemic: How the Tragic HIV Mistake Threatens Us All,” fast-track approval for mRNA vaccines was “essentially a massive clinical trial [that] was conducted in real time on the entire population.” The results are still coming in.
Anthony Fauci earned a medical degree in 1966, but if he ever practiced medicine, it was only for a short time. In 1968, he took a cushy “yellow beret” job with the National Institutes of Health. The number of COVID patients Fauci has treated is unknown, but a fair estimate would be zero. He’s a bureaucrat, first and foremost, wielding executive-level power but never having to face the voters.
This Lysenko-esque figure is still running his mouth, but the people have little if any reason to heed anything he says. On the other hand, since he’s never been held accountable, Congress has good reason to investigate him. The same goes for the Centers for Disease Control, which has failed at its primary task.
The CDC’s intrepid Epidemic Intelligence Service failed to prevent the “novel coronavirus” from arriving stateside. In early 2020, EIS veteran Nancy Messonnier delivered a series of briefings that faithfully echoed China’s talking points. The EIS, supposedly the nation’s medical CIA, also seems unable to detect the new variants and stop their spread within the country.
People yearning to breathe free and live free should reject the CDC’s mask recommendations. For its part, Congress has good reason to downsize the CDC and NIAID or eliminate them altogether. White coat supremacy is incompatible with a constitutional republic. The struggle against white coat supremacy is the struggle of memory against forgetting.Lloyd Billingsley is the author of “Hollywood Party,” “Barack ’Em Up: A Literary Investigation,” and “Yes I Con: United Fakes of America.” He has written for the Wall Street Journal, FrontPage magazine, and many other publications.
