Good news: Fauci is out and common sense might be returning!

on . Posted in Articles of Interest

WASHINGTON (PNN) - August 17, 2020 - These days it seems there is not much good news out there. People are still panicked over the coronavirus; governments are still trampling civil liberties in the name of fighting the virus; the economy - already teetering on the edge of collapse - has been kicked to the ground by what history may record as one of the worst man-made disasters of all time: shutting down the country to fight a cold virus.

That’s why we’ll take good news wherever we can get it, and Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump’s hiring of Dr. Scott Atlas to his coronavirus task force may just be the good news that we need. Trump has sidelined headline-hogging Dr. Anthony Fauci in favor of Atlas, the former Stanford University Medical Center chief of neuroradiology.

Recall, Fauci was the “expert” who told us a few months ago that we would never again be able to shake hands.

Fauci’s advice, forecasts and assessments proved to be wildly wrong, contradictory, and just plain bizarre. Don’t wear a mask. You must wear a mask. Masks are important as symbols. Put on goggles. Stay home. Churches must be severely restricted but Black Lives Matter marches and encounters with strangers met over the Internet are perfectly fine.

When Fauci demanded a lockdown of the economy for an indefinite period he actually seemed oblivious to the havoc it would wreak on the economy and on people’s lives. People like Fauci and others who demanded lockdowns and stay-at-home orders were still collecting their paychecks, so what did they care about anyone else?

Dr. Atlas is not only a former top physician and hospital administrator; as a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution he also understands the policy implications of locking down a country.

On April 22, Dr. Atlas wrote an op-ed in The Hill titled, The data is in - stop the panic and end the total isolation. In the article he made five main points that are as true today as when he wrote them: an overwhelming majority of people are at no risk of dying from COVID; protecting older people prevents hospital overcrowding; locking down a population actually prevents the herd immunity necessary to defeat the virus; people are dying because they are not being treated for non-COVID illnesses; we know what part of the population is at risk and we can protect them.

Imagine how many thousands of lives could have been saved had the Trump regime listened to Dr. Atlas back in April. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield admitted last month that lockdowns were killing more Amerikans than COVID-19. “First do no harm” was thrown out the window and nearly six months of wrong-headed policy has done perhaps irreparable harm to the country.

North Dakota and Sweden did virtually nothing to lock down or restrict their populations and they actually fared better than lockdown states in the FPSA. They had lower death rates, their hospitals were never overrun with COVID-19 patients, and they have an economy to which they can return.

We very much hope that Dr. Atlas will not moderate his message to please the blob in Washington. Trump’s COVID policies to this point have caused more harm than good. With Fauci out of the driver’s seat we finally have a chance of turning things around for the better.
