How many strikes do we have to give ’em before they’re out?

Glenn keeps saying how “sad” and horrible it is that the public no longer much trusts the goobermint’s health “experts,” but I don’t see it that way myself. I mean, come on: when your trust has been misplaced, your faith in over-powerful and unaccountable authorities betrayed, only a damned fool would continue to trust them.

We listened as bureaucrats like Dr. Anthony Fauci dictated economic, social, political and health policy from the widely watched White House stage, successfully shutting down businesses, sending people in fear to their homes, upsetting entire national industries and shuttering the doors on schools — all while claiming a complete hands-off approach to economic policy, political policy, education policy. All while claiming he spoke only to the “science” — all while waving his wand over the ever-changing “science.” All while pressing, pressing, pressing for patience until the development of a global vaccine. All while expecting his rapt, fearful audience to turn blind eyes to his own conflicts of interest with the development of a global vaccine — namely, that he sits on the board of the Bill Gates’ Decade of Vaccines campaign, aimed at developing and selling cure-all shots for what ails humans around the world.

And for the most part, the media did turn blind eyes.

Turn blind eyes, hell. They were cheering him on. And as long as what he says works to Trump’s and America’s disadvantage, they will go right on doing it.

The science was that the science was ever-changing, so to keep up, the rules, the regulations, the mandates, the orders, had to — simply had to! — change as well.

That’s not science. That’s flipping a flipping coin, again and again and again.

Well, in America, it’s time for the citizens to take back their rights from the charlatans. Scientists, on the coronavirus, have spent all the capital they have. They deserve to be drummed out and sent home. It’s time for the individuals to chart their own courses on personal health care.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me as many times as Fauci has since the AIDS scare back in the 80s—which he was wrong about too, along with every other damned thing he’s pronounced upon since, yet inexplicably still holds his powerful position rather than mopping a Wal-Mart restroom in Keokuk—well, I don’t even begin to know who gets shamed over that.

  1. For something like a virus, one strike and you should be out. We don’t have room for massive error* like we’ve seen this time. Fauci should be emptying bedpans and cleaning toilets in a nursing home.

    *I doubt it was error. I believe it was all gamed out to do as much destruction to the re-election chances of President Trump as possible.

    1. Completely agree, Barry. Fear-monger Fauci is a deep stater, part of the permanent bureaucracy that regards elected politicians as temporary annoyances who should not be allowed to disrupt their lucrative sinecures. Trump threatens their cozy empire-building, so the deep state has been trying everything they can think of to destroy him.

      Fauci is also an excellent example of how our so-called ‘elites’ are never held accountable for being wrong. He has a decades-long track record of predicting huge numbers of people would die from one disease after another, none of which actually happened. And the lack of mass death was not due to his ‘heroic’ efforts, either.

    2. Fauci and Birx should be hanged with Cuomo and Whitmer and Others as Murderers.
      Why stop there? Much of our Deep State should be hanged.
      Almost everyone at a senior position in Government Bureaucracy for any more than two decades should be forced to get a private sector job or be hanged.

  2. I simply cannot believe you guys haven’t been watching Tucker Carlson’s show.  He’s had this asshole’s number for months and has not been shy about it either.


    It’s the only show on Fox that’s worth watching anymore.

    Actually, sooner or later, I expect him to be taken off the air, but for now, he’s kicking the shit outta that blowhard Hannity (who for the life of me) was on top of the cable ratings like forever.

      1. Way ahead. Anyone remember that initially Tucker was on board with the chinaVirus is going to kill us all scare? To his credit, he figured it out pretty quickly, but not as soon as Mike, Kenny, Haz, I, and others did.

        1. I can understand somewhat that a talking head had to be somewhat circumspect about things, BUT, I still feel that conservatives should always profess SOME skepticism about things of that nature even if on TV.

      2. Yes, I know you were, as was CA @WRSA and many others. I was writing about people who reach a mass audience, which he certainly does.

  3. Anyone over the age of 40 should know – anytime someone predicts massive death and destruction, whatever the cause, it’s a lie.

    It’s been a lie my entire 67 years. And the predictions have been numerous.

    1. The Mencken quote about menacing the public with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary, comes to mind. People like Fauci or the global warmistas seek power for themselves by scaring the public. Of course they try to claim they are doing it “for our own good” but that is just another lie.

    2. Thinking back to Katrina, we all thought Nagin’s response (and the Governor’s too) was incompetence.

      Given what we’ve seen this year, I strongly suspect things like the school buses sitting unused in their parking lots, to get flooded and useless, and the poor preparations and sending thousands to the Football Stadium so that a humanitarian disaster would occur there were all of a piece deliberately done to try to pin a Disaster on W Bush.

      1. The DNC media certainly has been trying hard to push the “X is Trump’s Katrina” meme, haven’t they? They have tried with a few different values of X, and I suspect they will continue trying. It worked well against Bush, and the left is not very inventive. Most of their playbook is decades old.

        1. It wouldn’t have worked on W if he had just pointed it out.
          Trump Fights therefore Trump Wins.

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."

David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
