He's served in a Government capacity for decades. He hasn't seen a patient in a practice, for almost 30 years. Dr. Fauci knows that the power of his words is real. He also must know that power can be as infecting as a virus. In my opinion, he's now infected with that power. Seeking information from doctors is something we all do. What we do with that information is up to us- NOT the doctor. When you ask your doctor, "what do you recommend I do", you aren't giving your doctor power over you, rather you are giving MORE power to yourself by educating yourself with information to make a decision that you think is best for you and your family. Asking for information doesn't mean you entrust in someone to make the decision for you. That is where Dr. Fauci has pushed the limits of his "authority as an expert". While he is considered an expert in his field, he has mistaken those seeking his knowledge for entrusting him to make policy decisions and he's trying to play both sides of the line of scrimmage with the American people in this game called "Election Year". It's time to Empower the People, not the bureaucratic doctors who are infected with power at the federal, state and county health department levels.
CNN reported this statement by Dr. Fauci as "breaking news" -
"I don't like to be authoritarian, from the federal government. But at the local level, if governors and others essentially mandate the use of masks when you have an outbreak, I think that would be very important," Fauci said.
So he IS in favor of authoritarianism at a local government level, but not at a federal level. Once again Dr. Fauci has played the game on both sides of the line of scrimmage. Remember when he said there was no need for the public to wear face coverings? Remember when he said this was no big deal? Dr. Fauci plays to the crowd of the room he's in. So who can trust the validity and the quality of the information that's coming from him? Recently, Fox News Channel's Ingraham Angle interviewed Texas Lt. Governor Daniel Patrick. He was asked about Dr. Fauci comments about Texas as it has become a so-called "hot spot" with "alarming" cases. The Lt. Governor says he's done with Fauci because Fauci is dead wrong... again.
I think it's time Dr. Fauci step out of the lime light, get away from the public arena and stop accepting requests from media outlets for interviews since he cant' seem to compartmentalize agenda seekers from information seekers. Unless of course, he's only trying to further his own agenda.
Texas Lt. Gov. Daniel Patrick says in a recent interview that Fauci doesn't know what he's talking about.
