Faucimentalism

 I represent science,” Dr. Anthony Fauci proclaimed last year, charging that his critics were only attacking science. That is a tough act to follow but Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor was up to the task. 

“All I have ever done—and go back and look at everything I’ve ever done,” Dr. Fauci proclaimed last month, “was to recommend common-sense, good CDC-recommended public health policies that have saved millions of lives.” That invites a review of a few things Fauci has done in recent years. 

Prophecy is not science but in 2017 Fauci predicted that a president would be surprised by a new infectious disease. In 2019, Fauci funded gain-of-function research, which makes viruses more lethal and transmissible, at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in Communist China. There the dangerous research, once banned in the United States, could be conducted in secret, with no accountability to Americans. 

Fauci laundered nearly $4 million through Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance. In addition to the money, the Wuhan lab received a cargo of deadly pathogens courtesy of Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, director of the special pathogens program at Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg, Canada. In 2017 and 2018 alone, Qiu made at least five trips to the WIV, one of several institutions working with China’s military. 

In early 2020, Fauci opposed President Trump’s ban on travel from China. Dr. Fauci recommended lockdowns that wrecked the American economy and caused widespread suffering. His measures violated informed consent, and the basic rule of “first do no harm.” The notion that anything Fauci recommended saved millions of lives would come as a surprise to Drs. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford, Sunetra Gupta of Oxford, and Martin Kulldorff of Harvard University. 

These medical scientists, authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, expressed grave concerns over the inadequate protection of the vulnerable and the devastating harms of lockdown policies. Instead of engaging in debate with these scientists, Fauci sought to shut them down, at the request of Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health. Both men lied about U.S. funding for gain-of-function research at the WIV. 

Anthony Fauci earned a medical degree in 1966 and in 1968 took a cushy “yellow beret” job with the NIH. Dr. Fauci’s bio showed no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry, but in 1984 the NIH proclaimed Fauci director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Kary Mullis, who earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry at UC Berkeley and won a Nobel prize for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), is on record that Fauci “doesn’t understand electronic microscopy and he doesn’t understand medicine. He should not be in a position like he’s in.” He still is, with a backup system unknown to many Americans.   

Fauci’s wife Christine Grady is director of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health, and heads the NIH section on human subjects research. Grady earned a Ph.D. in philosophy and bioethics from Georgetown but is not a medical doctor and like her husband holds no advanced degrees in biochemistry or molecular biology. In 1995, Grady authored The Search for an AIDS Vaccine: Ethical Issues in the Development and Testing of a Preventative AIDS Vaccine

The author does not disclose that she had been married to Anthony Fauci since 1985. Grady touts the highly toxic AZT (azidothymidine), marketed as Zidovudine. AZT was Dr. Fauci’s preferred treatment for AIDS, tested on black and Hispanic foster children in New York with deadly results. 

By all indications, whatever Fauci wants to do or say, dutiful wife Christine will tell him it’s ethical. That doubtless includes the pronouncement that everything Fauci ever did was the best science and saved millions of lives. Here the man who claims la science c’est moi was probably looking down the road. 

Shortly after the claim, the White House declared monkeypox a public health emergency, without much background on how this came to be. According to the CDC, monkeypox does not occur naturally in the United States and traces to a 2003 shipment of African rodents from Ghana to Texas. The various African squirrels, mice, pouched rats, porcupines and such were “housed near prairie dogs” at a facility in Illinois.

Contact with the infected prairie dogs caused all the 47 confirmed and probable cases, so monkeypox is a misnomer. According to the CDC “No instances of monkeypox infection were attributed exclusively to person-to-person contact.” That differs from current reports of monkeypox transfer by sitting near someone with symptoms, and warnings of transfer by sexual activity, particularly among gay and bisexual men.  

As with COVID, the CDC’s vaunted Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS)  failed to prevent monkeypox from arriving stateside. When Joe Biden announced its sudden arrival, he said “we have vaccines to take care of it.” As Christine Grady explains in her book, the man in charge of vaccines is Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The NIAID boss commands a budget of more than $6 billion and directs spending on public health and research funding, a dangerous concentration of power. This man needs watching, but government and media fail to hold him accountable. 

Fauci’s claim that he saved millions of lives could be the basis for new lockdowns for the sudden monkeypox “emergency.” With midterm elections at hand, these lockdowns could be a justification for mail ballots and other measures that facilitate voter fraud. 

As with COVID, watch for Dr. Fauci to recommend vaccines for the new pox Americana, even for those groups at the lowest risk. As parents might recall, Fauci wanted children under the age of four to get three doses of vaccine. 

As Robert F. Kennedy Jr. detailed in The Real Anthony Fauci, the Biden advisor has made NIAID a division of Big Pharma. Dr. Fauci gets a piece of the action, but the NIH is heavily redacting the records.  No word what NIH ethics boss Christine Grady thinks about the people’s right to know, but at this point a few realities should be clear.

Fauci, 81, wields executive-level power without ever facing the voters. Joe Biden jokes that Fauci is the real president but the Delaware Democrat is understating the matter. Dr. Anthony Fauci is the closest America has ever come to one-man, lifetime rule. He now wants embattled Americans to accept him as their lord and savior. 

Whitecoat supremacy is the true pox now afflicting the nation. For a constitutional republic it could prove fatal.
