The Madness of Trusting “Experts”

“Expert: one with the special skill or knowledge representing mastery of a particular subject”

If you are a regular at TruthNewsNetwork, you know our feelings about experts. Too many people in the U.S. carry that as a title simply to command respect for their own opinions when shared with others in their world. In my world, I classify “experts” the exact same way as I do “consultants.” Both sets of folks usually are deficient in many ways and use those two titles to garner, at least initially, the respect that the titles should receive, but only in/when “earned.”

In Dr. Anthony Fauci’s case, whatever respect and subsequent following he receives are turning out to be exactly the same being commanded and received by “Dr.” Jill Biden.

How many passes does Anthony Fauci get? How many times must he be categorically wrong before people stop giggling at his every facial expression and treating him as some sort of minor deity?

Let me state unequivocally that enough is enough and it’s time for him to step aside.

​He won’t, of course. He’ll sit for magazine covers, attend sporting events the rest of us don’t get to go to, perhaps take CBS up on their offer to appear on Dancing with the Stars or sign a multi-year cable news contract. As COVID-19 tears through the country, and more importantly, through the parts of the country like California where elected officials worship Fauci like a sun-god, he continues his tour of the television studios. He continues to mislead the public. It may not be out of malice. He may not be a shameless political hack or liar, as some make him out to be. But he is a doctor, and a doctor is only as good as the trust they earn from their patients with their words. Anthony Fauci’s words have been misleading and deceptive.

Sen. Marco Rubio caused an uproar over the weekend when he plainly stated two important facts — the first being that Dr Fauci discouraged the purchasing and wearing of protective masks back in March. Fauci told 60 Minutes on March 8 that “right now, people should not be walking, there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.” When pressed by the host, who said “you’re sure of this? Because people are listening very closely,” Fauci doubled down. “When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a bit better. It might even block a droplet. But it is not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.” Fauci finished by saying “when you think masks you should think healthcare providers as needing them and people who are ill.”

This was not an offhand comment. This was a sober analysis from a medical professional considered the top expert in his field. Fauci of course backtracked on this stance, saying the reason he wasn’t truthful was for the public good, to allow supplies to go to “the people, namely the healthcare workers, who were brave enough to put themselves in harm’s way, to take care of people who you know were infected with the coronavirus and the danger of them getting infected.”

News outlets like the New York Times and Gizmodo blasted Fauci for being untruthful over this.

​As the vaccination process revved up, Fauci began to dip his toes into the subject of herd immunity among the general population. Fauci has said if 70 percent of the population were vaccinated, herd immunity could be reached. However last week, he admitted to that he was downplaying that number in an interview with the New York Times, and is now saying his herd immunity “estimate” is 80 to 85 percent. His reason for not being truthful with these numbers at first was “partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”

Imagine a scenario in which Dr Anthony Fauci is your personal physician, and he comes to you with news about your sickness. It could be pneumonia. It could be cancer. His first assessment is to inform you that you aren’t really that sick and this treatment won’t really do much for you. Then six months later, as you get sicker, he tells you to aggressively begin treating yourself with the very thing he said you did not need. Now imagine another scenario in which the good doctor tells you he was not being truthful with you because he tells you in his gut, you were not ready to hear the truth about how sick you were, but now that you are further along in your sickness and treatment, he can finally be honest with you about steps needed to mitigate your sickness. This would not be acceptable for you or your family. It should not be acceptable for the country as a whole. We shouldn’t live in a health-propaganda state.

​I understand there are numerous important factors that weigh heavily on healthcare professionals. I also understand that “experts” are required to give medical opinions that often can only be based on the findings of others that may seem definite but in many cases are still “in flux” when those opinions are given. But this Fauci debacle is unforgiveable. Like Deborah Birx before him, Fauci has proven himself untrustworthy. Let him retire or go fully embrace his media starstruck followers. He seems more intent on pleasing than being honest with his patients. However, his patient this year has been the country, and he’s lied to us too many times.

Fauci Lies?

Lest we forget, here are just a few:

1.) Dr. Fauci says he warned Trump in January that the U.S. was in real trouble but that is not what he said publicly. In January Dr. Fauci told Newsmax TV that the United States “did not have to worry”about the coronavirus and that it was“not a major threat.”

2.) Fauci warned of an apocalyptic coronavirus pandemic — then just weeks later he compared the coronavirus to a bad flu.

3.) Fauci based all of his predictions on models the that were OFF BY MILLIONS and then later told reporters,“You can’t really rely on models.”

4.) On March 20th Fauci jumped in and during a press briefing on hydroxychloroquine treatment for coronavirus “corrected” the president saying, “You got to be careful when you say ‘fairly effective.’ It was never done in a clinical trial… It was given to individuals and felt that maybe it worked.” Exactly two weeks later hydroxychloroquine was deemed the most highly rated treatmentfor the novel coronavirus in an international poll of more than 6,000 doctors.

5.) Fauci pushed these garbage models every step of the way. Fauci claimed 1 million to 2 million Americans would die from coronavirus. Then he said 100,000 to 200,000 Americans will die from the virus. Then he agreed 81,766 Americans would die from the coronavirus. Then by that Wednesday the experts cut the number of deaths to 60,415 projected deaths. Every one of his mortality projections have not been just wrong, they proved to be nothing more than fodder — guesses and nothing more and certainly not based on scientific research or conclusions.

6.) On Easter, Fauci suggested President Trump should have shut down the economy in February when the number of known cases in the U.S. was around 100. He later walked back his attacks.

7.) Fauci said cruises were OK on March 9th. That was a huge error.

8.) Fauci said malls, movies and gyms were OK on February 29th. That was another huge mistake.

9.) Fauci was wrong about the first coronavirus deaths in the country. Fauci, Birx and the CDC were off by nearly a month. California officials revealed in April that a patient in Santa Clara died from coronavirus on February 6th not February 29th.

10.) Fauci and the CDC missed the millions and millions of U.S. citizens who had already contracted the coronavirus before the draconian lockdowns took place. Knowing this could have prevented the economic calamity.

11.) OnApril 15, 2020, Fauci endorsed Tinder hookups, unbelievably.

12.) Fauci relied on corrupt W.H.O. rules to lock down the United States and destroy the US. economy. Meanwhile, this delayed the herd immunity that is needed to prevent a future outbreak of this deadly virus.

13.) Fauci and Birx used the Imperial College Model to persuade President Trump to lock down the entire U.S. economy. The Imperial model has since been confirmed as a complete fraud.

14.) Fauci warned that Georgia would see a surge in coronavirus cases and deaths by opening their economy too early. He was wrong again. In fact the opposite happened.

15.) And during Congressional testimony Fauci told Senator Rand Paul that opening the schools would not be a good idea.

Summary

If Fauci and his public life during the last year had instead of in medicine been lived in a normal business world, he would have been quickly fired and sent packing as early as February! How did he obtain such glowing respect? Simply from the fact that we knew very little about him and those who introduced him to us all gave him the respect they demanded from us!

I’ll say little more. We may never know the damage this so-called expert has foisted on the U.S., how many people have died acting on his advice, and how many lives have been destroyed. But one thing is certain: ALL in public office should run from Anthony Fauci because of his failure to produce results for us all! And that should be sufficient for whomever can do so to send him packing.
