Fauci’s Shady History With Hydroxychloroquine, Vaccines

The Mid-day Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Doesn’t Break for Lunch)

Frequent commenters Jimmy McAfee, Phineas Gage (a pseudonym), and Gregg Updike put up a series of posts this morning detailing Dr. Anthony Fauci’s amazing inconsistency on the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as an effective treatment for viruses, and his record of miserable failure when it comes to development of vaccines. With Dr. Fauci continuing to poo-pooh HCQ, in combination with azithromycin, as an effective treatment for the Wuhan Virus, and his boosting of a “vaccine” as the only way out of this mess, these walks through his history on those two subjects become especially compelling.

Given that, I am reproducing the contributions by McAfee and Gage here in full, to maximize their readership.

First, Jimmy McAfee on Fauci and HCQ:

The best reason of all to fire Fauci:

“After President Donald Trump mentioned during a recent press conference the potential benefits of hydroxychloroquine for treating the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), Anthony Fauci from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) quickly piped in that the remedy supposedly isn’t proven, and that people shouldn’t think of it as a “knockout drug.” So why, then, did he praise this very same drug back in 2013 as a treatment for the MERS coronavirus, a relative of COVID-19?

On the use of hydroxychloroquine, he “jumped at the chance to praise the discovery, announcing that it was “particularly encouraging” because these drugs are “widely available,” meaning they can get into the hands of people who need them quickly and easily.”‘

“However, now that Trump and his administration are in charge, Fauci is singing a much different tune. Rather than express enthusiasm for the many cases of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that have already been successfully treated with hydroxychloroquine, Fauci felt the need to throw a wet blanket over the whole thing and override Trump’s announcement in a stunning display of disrespect.

“You’ve got to be careful when you say ‘fairly effective,’” Fauci shot back at Trump after the president suggested, based on Fauci’s own statements from seven years ago, that hydroxychloroquine demonstrated effectiveness against SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). “It was never done in a clinical trial that compared it to anything. It was given to individuals and felt that maybe it worked.”’

So why did Dr. Fauci love hydroxychloroquine under Obama, during MERS (another coronavirus) and say so because it was cheap, available and relatively benign and very hopeful, and now whizz all over the use of it now for this coronavirus, when it is still cheap, available (less so because of demand) and relatively benign and very hopeful? Why take away hope when the virus we face is arguably far more lethal than the MERS virus?

Someone should ask the diminutive Dr.

Resign, Dr. Fauci. But not before answering the bloody question.

And here is Phineas Gage on Dr. Fauci’s miserable failure over 40 years of “leading” the effort to develop a vaccine for HIV:

Like so many Democrat bureaucrats, Fauci has failed his way to the top, from HIV to H1N1 to this. Wrong every step of the way. And not just missing by a bit, but wildly off-target. And for this he is rewarded.

Vaccine development for highly mutable viruses is difficult at best. Ultimately, the best cure for a virus remains the remarkable human immune system. It’s why elderly and other immunocompromised individuals are the high-mortality group.

As it seems likely that this virus accidentally got out of the Wuhan lab, what should concern everyone is what else is being produced in those labs that might eventually be released in a deliberate manner. For example, there is much speculation and some evidence that the Chinese have engineered a ‘Captain-Trips’ super-flu.

From Gregg Updike on the same subject:

The good Dr. Anthony Fauci has been in charge of the effort by the CDC to find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS for close to forty years and hasn’t found one. I’m not saying finding a HIV/AIDS vaccine is easy, but this man’s myopia is breath-taking! Remember, people like him were predicting that AIDS was going to spread like wildfire and it was going to be devastating – especially when Republicans (Reagan and Bush Sr) were in the White House. When Bill Clinton and ‘the One’ occupied it; not so much – the AIDS ‘crisis’ just sort of faded away. Instead we found effective treatments for HIV/AIDS – but no vaccine.

HCQ combined with other medications seems to be able to meet that need.

Dr. Anthony Vaccine, and Dr. Deborah Social Distancing, need to go, plain and simple! While I am not totally against developing a safe, effective, inexpensive vaccine for the CHINA virus, I’m not holding my breath and neither should Trump or the country.

Speaking of vaccines: Vaccines are generally a one time deal with occasional booster shots given many years apart. Our ‘recommended’ (30-40% effective) annual flu shots are just that, shots, and not vaccines per se. It seems highly doubtful that the ‘experts’ at the CDC will be capable of producing a one-time long-lasting ‘vaccine’ for THIS CHINA virus, and certainly not for the likely different strains that will continue to be developed by our adversaries.

More likely, it will be an annual shot with a similar 30-40% effectiveness.

[End]

So, to summarize the inconsistent and obviously politically-motivated record of Dr. Fauci:

– When a Democrat is in the White House, HCQ is something of a miracle drug for treating viral outbreaks;

– When a Republican is in the White House, HCQ is unproven and something to be avoided in treating viral outbreaks;

– Dr. Fauci currently says we cannot return to our normal lives until a vaccine has been developed 12-18 months from now, but his record of abject failure related to the development of truly effective vaccines over the span of the last 40 years clearly demonstrates that we should run away from this notion as fast as humanly possible.

Bottom line, Anthony Fauci is a man who should be treated with extreme skepticism by all thinking people.

That is all.

No One Elected Dr. Fauci to Run America for the Next 18 Months

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Funny, I don’t remember Dr. Anthony Fauci’s name being on the November, 2016 ballot.  – The updates from the White House Coronavirus Task Force have become a daily exercise in subliminal messaging for those who are paying close attention. Which, unfortunately, excludes the dimwitted members of the White House press corps. But I digress.

Let’s look at yesterday’s press conference. Even though he only came into the event for its second half, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, seems to be running our entire country right now. His remarks at this update made it very clear that he wants to run the country for another 12 to 18 months.

If you were paying attention to what he actually said during this presser, he told you that pretty clearly:

After US Health Secretary Alex Azar said a coronavirus vaccine candidate had been developed in three days, with a clinical trial already in the works, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious diseases advisor to the White House, sought to temper his enthusiasm.

Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, said that the earliest the US could possibly get a vaccine would be in 12 or even 18 months — “at least.”

[End]

Now, that was a startling statement given that it came in the context of his answer to a question from a reporter about when we could expect our intentionally depressed business community to be able to restart and return to something resembling normalcy. Fauci made it very clear that he views this additional month of everyone staying at home and millions losing their livelihoods as just a starting point for his strategy for fighting this Wuhan Virus.

Meanwhile, President Trump, who has thus far seen fit to defer to Fauci’s judgment, continues to send a conflicting message: That once April is over, he is going to start working to get people back to work. Where Fauci obviously wants to keep everyone locked in their homes well into 2021, the President is obviously thinking that, once we get over the hump of this viral “curve,” people will be able to get back to work and their kids back to school, even if they have to go to those places wearing face masks and gloves.

What this means is that, at some point around mid-April, the President and Fauci are likely to end up in a major confrontation, out of which a unified strategy will emerge. If Fauci really thinks he’s been appointed by anyone to run our entire country for 18 months, he has a big surprise coming his way soon.

And let’s never forget that Dr. Fauci is the guy who wrote not one, but two love letters to Hillary Rodham Clinton a few years ago:

Cheryl/Lois: Wow! Very rarely does a speech bring me to tears, but this one did it. Talk about telling it like it is. This was a bases- loaded home run.

Please tell the Secretary that I love her more than ever you guys too, of course.

Cheryl: Anyone who had any doubts about the Secretary’s stamina and capability following her illness had those doubts washed away by today’s performance before the Senate and the House.

She faced extremely difficult circumstances at the Hearings and still she hit it right out of the park. Please tell her that we all love her and are very proud to know her.

Warm regards, Tony

Given that throwing America into a deep, dark economic depression and keeping it there through November plays right into the hands of awful ghouls like the Pantsuit Princess, these two frankly stunning letters raise severe concerns about Fauci’s motivations in all of this, not to mention his overall judgment and self-awareness.

In all fairness to the lovelorn Dr. Fauci, he has just one job: To fight infectious disease. Now, it’s a job that he has not done especially well over his career, given that our country continues to lose 40-60,000 citizens each year to the seasonal flu. And let’s remember: Fauci  and the CDC continue to pretend that we actually have a “vaccine” for the various strains of seasonal flu. That’s a reality that should make everyone say “yikes.”

So, Fauci wants to keep you all out of work and stuck in your homes for another 18 months, without seeming to even consider the truth that millions upon millions of Americans will in fact lose those homes if he is able to keep them out of work for even a small fraction of that many months. Many are in fact losing their homes right now because they live paycheck to paycheck and couldn’t pay their rent for April.

And at the end of that long period of time, Fauci proclaims we will have us a spanking new “vaccine” that will in all likelihood be every bit as [in]effective as the “vaccine” for the seasonal flu. Meaning, even when we have that “vaccine,” tens of thousand of Americans are going to continue to die every year from the Wuhan Virus.

Thus, at some point President Trump – you know, the guy who was actually elected to run this country in 2016 – and Americans everywhere are going to have a decision to make much sooner than Fauci would like: We can either see thousands of our fellow citizens die each year destitute and cowering in their homes, or we can see thousands of our fellow citizens die from the Wuhan Virus while getting this country running again.

That’s the real choice here, not the fantasy of some miracle “vaccine” Dr. Fauci keeps peddling.

Our focus right now is properly on slowing the spread of the virus to get our country firmly on the downside of that viral curve. Once we are on that downside, our focus then should shift to marshaling all of our nation’s resources to early identification and isolation of those who contract the Wuhan Virus and effectively treating those who are ill. If we no longer have a strong economy, our ability to marshal such resources will diminish rapidly over time and more people will die as a result.

This is not, as the Democrat/media propaganda complex is already beginning to say, a “choice between money and lives.” It is a choice between prospering while limiting risk, or cowering through a dystopian existence that we intentionally brought on ourselves.

Sometime during the second half of April, you should expect President Trump to lay that choice out before us, and you should get ready to go back to work.

We’re Americans, dammit. When that time comes, let’s act like it.

That is all.
