  • The Real Anthony Fauci, by Robert Kennedy, Jr. could be a fascinating read.

    https://thecripplegate.com/book-revi...qJ-RJrLVLQhagE

    Pause is required for a few reasons among those who might dismiss the book as fit only for tinfoil-draped conspiracy theorists:

    First, Kennedy is a not a Republican. He is a Democrat who endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries. In fact, early in the book he writes that Trump’s presidency was chaotic. So, it cannot be concluded that Kennedy is a Trump fan, looking to discredit a left-leaning archnemesis. Second, the book is not a referenceless tirade of unverifiable claims and ignorance. Kennedy’s work includes roughly 1,800 footnotes. Third, nearly 150 physicians, researchers, and medical professionals are listed in the work as officially endorsing the book, including Dr. Harvey Risch (Professor of Epidemiology at Yale, Editor of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, and Board of Editors of the Journal of American Epidemiology), Dr. Robert Malone (original inventor of mRNA and DNA vaccination technologies, NIH Accelerating Covid-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines Clinical Work Group, and former Editor in Chief of Journal of Immune Based Therapies and Vaccines), and Dr. Peter McCullough (vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center and clinical cardiologist). Therefore, intellectual honesty forbids a disdainful dismissal of Kennedy’s work.

    The history and medical data documented by the work is as fascinating as it is shocking. Following includes a brief sampling and paraphrasing of Kennedy’s work.

    Kennedy writes that Fauci, an unelected official, is the highest paid of America’s four million federal employees. He is less of a health professional, and more a businessman, with significant financial incentives and partnership with Big Pharma. Fauci has exercised more power, enjoyed by few rulers and no medical professionals in history. He spent half a century as America’s reigning health commissar preparing for his final role as commander of history’s biggest war against a global pandemic. When covid-19 hit, many nations looked to Dr. Fauci, America’s most powerful and enduring public health bureaucrat, to confidently direct US health policies and rapidly develop countermeasures that would serve as state-of-the-art templates for the rest of the world. Kennedy documents the wave of veneration sent to Fauci during the pandemic, along with the prohibition of criticism towards him.

    Fauci dictated a series of policies that resulted in some of the most deaths and one of the highest percentages of covid-19 body counts of any nation on the planet. Only relentless propaganda and wall-to-wall censorship could conceal his disastrous mismanagement during covid 19’s first year.

    Fauci’s lockdown policies during covid-19 bankrupted a massive amount of small businesses, including 40% of black-owned businesses, some of which took generations of investment to build. The interest payments on the national debt due to some of these closure policies will cost up to one trillion dollars annually. Kennedy predicts that debt will likely permanently bankrupt the new deal programs, the social safety net that, since 1945, fortified nurtured and sustained America’s middle class.

    Business closures pulverized America’s middle class and engineered the nation’s largest upward transfer of wealth in history. In 2020 workers lost 3.7 trillion dollars while billionaires gained 3.9 trillion. An additional 8 million workers dropped below the poverty line. The biggest winners were the companies that were cheerleading Dr. Fauci’s lockdown policies and censoring his critics; big technology, big data, big telecom, and big media behemoths. The internet companies that snookered us all with the promise of democratizing communications made it impermissible for Americans to criticize their government, or question the safety of pharmaceutical products. These companies propped up all official pronouncements while scrubbing all dissent. Larry Ellison’s company, Oracle, which partnered with the CIA to build new cloud services, won the contract to process CDC vaccination data. Kennedy documents the billions gained by individuals consequent of the covid-19 pandemic such as Ellison, Google’s Brin, Bezos, Facebook’s Zuckerberg, and other big-tech and media leaders.

    Kennedy writes that Ellison, Gates, and other members of government industry collaboration used the lockdown to accelerate the construction of their 5G network of satellites and biometric facial recognition, and track and trace infrastructure that they and their government intelligence partners can use to mine and monetize our data, further suppress dissent, and manage the rage that comes as Americans wake up to the fact that this outlaw gang has stolen our democracy, our civil rights, our country, and our way of life while we huddled in orchestrated fear from a flu-like virus.

    With fears of covid generously stoked, the dramatic and steady erosion of constitutional rights and fomenting of a global coup d’état against democracy, the demolition of our economy, the obliteration of a million small businesses, the collapsing of the middle class, the evisceration of our Bill of Rights, the tidal wave of surveillance capitalism, and the rising biosecurity state, and the stunning shifts in wealth and power going to a burgeoning oligarchy of high-tech silicon valley robber barons seemed to a dazed and uncritical America like it might be a reasonable price to pay for safety. And, we were told it’s just for 15 days, or maybe 15 months, or however long it takes for Dr. Fauci to follow the data to his answer.

    Fauci, the J. Edgar Hoover of Public Health, has presided over cataclysmic declines in public health including an exploding chronic disease epidemic that has made the “Fauci generation,” children born after his elevation to NIAID kingpin in 1984, the sickest generation in American history. His obsequious subservience to Big Ag, Big Food, and pharmaceutical companies has left our children drowning in a toxic soup of pesticide residues, corn syrup, and processed foods while also serving as pin cushions for 69 mandated vaccine doses by age 18, none of them properly safety tested.

    Kennedy reports the ineffectiveness of masks and social-distancing. He documents emails from Fauci which report that ordinary masks had little to no efficacy against covid-19. Studies are cited which demonstrate that masks with less than an N-95 respirator are ineffective. Fauci admitted that masks are most effective in making people feel better. In one study, 85% of people who contracted covid reported wearing a mask during the time of contracting the illness. Masking, instead, helped inoculate the public against critical thinking. Kennedy mentioned that mask-mandates reminded him of the futile duck-and-cover drills performed during the Cold War. Former US Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Scott Gottlieb, admitted that the six-foot social-distance rule was arbitrary and not scientifically backed. In October 2020, the WHO (World Health Organization) strongly recommended against lockdowns. Later studies demonstrated that lockdowns were ineffective, and far more detrimental to the public than the virus.

    In September 2021, justifying covid vaccine mandates, Dr. Fauci spoke at an elementary school where he recounted the benefit of receiving the measles and mumps vaccines as a child. Kennedy documents, however, that those vaccines were not available until 1963, and 1967. Dr. Fauci attended grade school in the 1940s.

    Kennedy documents that the Fauci-encouraged, large-scale approach to treating patients with covid-19 was devastating. Specifically, treating patients with Remdesivir, intubation, and ventilator, was unprecedented, and racked up an unnecessarily high body count.

    One of the more troubling reports from the book concerns this high death count. Dr. Peter McCullough (Baylor University Medical) is the most peer-reviewed published medical professional in history. McCullough wrote that we could have drastically reduced hospitalizations and deaths by early treatment medications like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. His work demonstrates that some 80% of deaths could have been avoided with these and other relatively inexpensive treatments. In particular, McCullough says that death rates would have been below that of the seasonal flu. By early summer 2020, McCullough and other physicians reported promising data on ivermectin and other treatments (for example, hydroxychloroquine, zinc, vitamin D, azithromycin, quercetin, IV vitamin C, NAC, etc.). Dr. Michael Seheult (a pulmonary and critical care internist) reported similar data from things like zinc, vitamin C and D, quercetin, and NAC early in the pandemic.

    McCullough and his team demonstrated an 85% reduction in hospitalizations among 800 covid-19 patients treated with his guidelines. Though he is now often censored, Dr. McCullough’s study is still the most downloaded paper for 2020 according to the American Medical Association. Notably, the Association for American Physicians and Surgeons downloaded his article and made it their official guideline. McCullough observes the problem with the fact that Fauci has never published a paper on how to treat covid, yet was lifted up as the leading authority on the illness.

    Kennedy cites a Michigan physician, Dr. David Brownstein, who approached early treatment of covid-19 with some of the aforementioned, inexpensive and easily available supplements and medications. Brownstein and his team subsequently experienced censorship, while also reporting a high rate of severe covid vaccine side effects.

    Five medical professionals, including some of the nation’s most highly published and experienced physicians and frontline covid specialists (Dr. McCullough, Dr. Kory, Dr. Ryan Cole, Dr. Brownstein, and Dr. Harvey Rish) independently reported that Dr. Fauci’s suppression of aforementioned early treatments and off-patent remedies was responsible for up to 80% of the deaths attributed to covid-19 in the US. The relentless malpractice of deliberately withholding these effective, early covid-19 treatments, and forcing the use of Remdesivir (which costs a few thousand dollars per dose) may have unnecessarily killed up to 500,000 Americans.

    Dr. Ryan Cole is a Mayo clinic and Columbia University trained, board certified anatomic clinical pathologist and CEO of Cole diagnostics. He has diagnosed over 350,000 patients in his career. Dr. Cole records successful results using aforementioned early treatments. He treated 300 patients with covid-19, half of whom were comorbid. Not one of the 300 were hospitalized and none died. Knowing that covid is an inflammatory blood-clotting disease, doctors such as these insist, and have demonstrated with their work, that the majority of deaths could have been avoided. But early treatment remedies were censored. Dr. Cole reports that this has never happened in medical history. He says, instead, that the deadliest part of the pandemic was under-treatment in early stages.

    In the meantime, Dr. Fauci did not recommend increasing things like zinc, vitamin D, or C, though the majority of covid-19 hospitalizations reported a vitamin D deficiency. Nor did he encourage helpful approaches like increasing exercise, decreasing intake of processed foods, sugar, and chemical residues, which increase inflammation and weaken the immune system.

    On the topic of vaccines, Dr. Pierre Kory (President and Chief Medical Officer of the Front-Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance and Chief of Critical Care Service, Medical Director of Trauma and Life Support Center at the University of Wisconsin) reported that vaccinating individuals with natural immunity to covid-19 should never be the approach.

    Kennedy writes in chapter two, “Most of my fellow Democrats understand that Dr. Fauci led an effort to deliberately derail America’s access to life-saving drugs and medicines that might have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, and dramatically shortened the pandemic. There is no other aspect of the covid crisis that more clearly reveals the malicious intentions of a powerful vaccine cartel led by Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates to prolong the pandemic and amplify its mortal effects in order to promote their mischievous inoculations.”

    Kennedy records that the censorship of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was curious. Thirty-one out of 32 random worldwide studies of HCQ demonstrated that it was safe and effective in treating covid-19. Further, the WHO for decades prior to the covid-19 pandemic had listed HCQ as a safe and essential drug to treat a huge list of illnesses. However, it quickly fell out of fashion during the pandemic as it potentially posed a threat to the vaccine cartel.

    Kennedy reports that Bill Gates and the WHO financed an effort to conduct nearly 20 studies of HCQ in response to the promising data on the drug. However, each study employed fraudulent protocols deliberately designed to discredit HCQ as unsafe. Instead of using the standard treatment dose of 400 mg/day, the studies administered a borderline lethal daily dose starting with 2400 mg on day one, and 800 mg/day thereafter. Kennedy goes on to describe the questionable practices of the HCQ studies whose results reported the deadly effect of the drug.

    The book concludes, “Covid-19 is not the problem; it is a problem, one largely solvable with early treatments that are safe, effective, and inexpensive. The problem is endemic corruption in the medical-industrial complex, currently supported at every turn by mass-media companies. This cartel’s coup d’état has already siphoned billions from taxpayers, already vacuumed up trillions from the global middle class, and created the excuse for massive propaganda, censorship, and control worldwide. Along with its captured regulators, this cartel has ushered in the global war on freedom and democracy.”

    IIRC, Robert Kennedy Jr. is straight out anti-vaxx and is, to put it nicely, a bit on the looney side.

    That doesn't mean that he is wrong, but rather... caveat emptor




    btw, he just threw a party where all attendees had to be vaccinated.

        Yeah, he's not someone I would really expect good information out of.

        In fact, I can't help but notice that the review's attempt to try to argue for why the book should be trustworthy seems to not be all that persuasive:

        "First, Kennedy is a not a Republican. He is a Democrat who endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries. In fact, early in the book he writes that Trump’s presidency was chaotic. So, it cannot be concluded that Kennedy is a Trump fan, looking to discredit a left-leaning archnemesis."

        He may not be biased towards Trump but he is biased towards basically anything involving vaccination, which Fauci has been a proponent of.

        "Second, the book is not a referenceless tirade of unverifiable claims and ignorance. Kennedy’s work includes roughly 1,800 footnotes."

        While having footnotes is better than not having them, the number of footnotes tells us very little. I've seen works that have a crazy ton of footnotes but if you spend the time looking them up you'll find they dramatically misrepresent their sources or their sources are unreliable.

        "Third, nearly 150 physicians, researchers, and medical professionals are listed in the work as officially endorsing the book, including Dr. Harvey Risch (Professor of Epidemiology at Yale, Editor of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, and Board of Editors of the Journal of American Epidemiology), Dr. Robert Malone (original inventor of mRNA and DNA vaccination technologies, NIH Accelerating Covid-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines Clinical Work Group, and former Editor in Chief of Journal of Immune Based Therapies and Vaccines), and Dr. Peter McCullough (vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center and clinical cardiologist)."

        As far as I can tell, none of the people cited here are particularly fond of Fauci or his ideas. So them endorsing an anti-Fauci book doesn't seem to necessarily mean that much. Also, the claim that Robert Malone was the "original inventor of mRNA and DNA vaccination technologies", while popular amongst those who want to criticize those vaccines, considerably overstates what appears to be his actual role.

        So not really the most thrilling advertisement for why the book should be considered reliable. Which doesn't mean it's necessarily wrong; I don't have the interest or time to look into that. But that plus the fact Kennedy himself, as you say, is "a bit on the looney side" sure makes it less likely it's reliable. A stopped clock may be right twice a day, but it's still right only 0.07% of the time. Like you said, caveat emptor.

        btw, he just threw a party where all attendees had to be vaccinated.
        He apparently blamed his wife for that.

          Sorry, didn't edit in time to add my source:

          Though that article also says the policy of having to be vaccinated or tested didn't seem to be enforced.

            I'm not sure what to make of Kennedy. I don't think the criticism of the expert endorsers is very useful. Of course anyone who endorses an anti-Fauci book is going to be anti-Fauci. Kind of a tautology. Evaluate them on the basis of their professional qualifications.

            People on my side do tend to overstate Malone's role. For a while, he corrected them, but lately he seems to have stopped doing that.
