The Tragic Hydroxychloroquine Debate and Dr. Fauci’s Denial of Evidence, by Mikko Paunio

Dr. Anthony Fauci is probably the most overrated person on the entire planet. From Mikko Paunio at realclearpolicy.com:

As an epidemiologist trained to make causal inference, especially from observations, I feel strongly that there is an urgent need for an open and honest debate on the ability of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to save lives. I had not paid much attention to discussions related to the efficacy of pharmacological interventions in the treatment of Covid-19 patients until I read an op-ed by Yale University epidemiology professor Dr. Harvey A. Risch in Newsweek in early August, as well as Dr. Risch’s other writings on the matter. Until then, I had focused largely on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) incorrect scientific advice, on which the current mainstream media the Covid-19 pandemic narrative is based. This narrative unjustifiably characterizes the Covid-19 pandemic as akin to the horrendous 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. Despite my skepticism about the dire claims as to the severity of this pandemic and my increasing doubts about whether Covid-19 is a genuine pandemic and about the presumption that the human population lacks any immunity against SARS-CoV-2, I would certainly welcome all available improvements in our ability to successfully treat Covid-19 patients.

It was therefore enormously dismaying to read the official positions taken by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) condemning early outpatient therapy with HCQ as ineffective and dangerous. Their conclusion is based on highly questionable reasoning. There are well-established criteria for when an observed association can be ascribed to causation, which Dr. Risch meticulously took into consideration. These criteria were originally developed by the pioneering British epidemiologist Sir Austin   Hill. Thus Dr. Risch’s scientific inference of the treatment efficacy of administering HCQ, azithromycin or doxycycline, and zinc (“triple therapy”), as early as possible in outpatient settings to people at greatest risk, in order to prevent the SARS-CoV-2 infection from turning into a dangerous life-threatening “florid disease” is sound.

Dr. Fauci is No Nostradamus: How COVID-19 Ran Amok Under His Watch, by James Grundvig

Dr. Anthony Fauci is a much better bureaucrat and political hack than he is a doctor or medical researcher. From James Grundvig at vaxxter.com:

Michel de Nostradamus was born in Saint-Remy, South of France, in 1503. Beyond the gifts he would one day explore in astrology, he pursued an education to become a physician. After his first year at the University of Avignon, an outbreak of the plague swept through France, forcing the University to close.

Undaunted, Nostradamus opened an apothecary before attending the University of Montpellier in pursuit of a doctorate. But a second plague struck disrupting his plan; the plague also killed his first wife and two children. During the outbreak, he joined city doctors to fight against and contain the plague. They succeeded.

Nostradamus remarried, engendered six children, and wrote an almanac. Well received, he developed his ability as a seer, with a mix of astrology and biblical end-times visions, to become the world’s most famous prognosticator of the last one thousand years. He captured his dark revelations in The Prophecies, writing a collection of 942 quatrains.

Knowing more about his life, pursuits, interests, and experiences—a survivor of two plagues, fighting on the frontline of one outbreak—many will now see Nostradamus in a new light. It’s no wonder that his visions leaned toward doom and gloom.

By contrast, Dr. Anthony Fauci, born on Christmas Eve in 1940 in Brooklyn, New York, has lived a vastly different life. Yet, there are parallels between the two men. Both pursued a career as a physician. Both experienced two plagues during their lifetimes. In Fauci’s case, he was thrust into the epicenter of the 1980s AIDS/HIV epidemic when he became director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID). In spring 2020, he roamed center stage of the COVID19 pandemic, featured as one of the “experts” on the White House Task Force.

God Help Us All: Dr. Fauci Knows Exactly What He’s Doing, by Michael Thau

The coronavirus outbreak strategy being pursued will reduce herd immunity and consequently stretch out this whole horror show. From Michael Thau at americanthinker.com:

Last Thursday, the scientific mastermind behind the economic carnage and spirit-crushing isolation now constituting the two main pillars of America’s ingenious new public health strategy delivered some bad news.  Dr. Fauci says we’ll have to keep living like this until the virus is eradicated.

Even if “virus” isn’t his nickname for the American people, following his advice still means a long, grueling haul.  The economic shutdown and social confinement oppressing us have to continue for at least the minimum estimated 18 months it will take to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.  Longer, since the stipulation that our rights don’t get restored until new infections cease means we have to manufacture and distribute enough to inoculate 60% of the population.  All told, we’re talking God only knows how many years.

No remotely similar brutal experiment in tough love has ever been tried.  So it’s anyone’s guess how bad things will get.  The Great Depression saw just three consecutive years averaging around a 9% decline in GDP.  Unemployment peaked at 25%.  Much worse is already projected in just the coming months.

But even if our hardship snowballs into a catastrophe rivaling the crash of ’29, we’re at least likely to avoid its infamous breadlines.  Impoverished people lining up for food would wreak havoc on Dr. Fauci’s social distancing scheme.  So he’s likely to insist that any rations be delivered.  The upside to house arrest during an economic meltdown is not having to wear the malodorous rags to which your clothes will be reduced in public.

Tucker Carlson On Fauci’s Quarantine Call: Pushing “National Suicide” While He Has Job Security, by Tyler Durden

It’s easier to push measures that would put millions out of work if you know you’ll be holding on to your job. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

“We’ve interviewed Dr. Fauci respectfully on this program, and we’d gladly do that again if he came back, and he will come back. He’s an impressive person. But that does not mean that he’s never wrong,” Carlson said. “On the question of this pandemic, Fauci has been wrong repeatedly.”

Carlson expressed he’s particularly bothered by Fauci’s recommendation of a national quarantine given that economic devastation would be pretty much assured. The night prior Dr. Fauci told CNN’s Anderson Cooper during a coronavirus town hall: “I don’t understand why that’s not happening.” He said further, “You know, the tension between federally mandated versus states’ rights to do what they want is something I don’t want to get into,” and added, “But if you look at what’s going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that.”
