Fauci: 23 million people could die

Facts versus fear and Dr. Fauci (Our Dear Prophet). Do you remember when Fauci warned that *23 million* people could die from the bird flu (H5N1) because birds fly and can spread it the world over? If you doubt me, take the time to look up and read the entirety of Fauci’s September 2005 interview with Bill Moyers.

I would like you to read this very short piece in the LA Times from 2006 written by Marc Siegel, an MD and Associate Professor of Medicine at NYU. He is also the author of two books (2006) on the “epidemic of fear” and how the Government-Media-Big Pharma Machine fraudulently creates an environment of fear by baiting the primal instinct of the safety-begging, collective mob.

This quote (below) from the article is from a time (2006) when the media would actually dare to be skeptical of the Big Government-Big Medicine Narrative and its assumptions and challenge its perpetual fearmongering and fake data.

Yes, *that* Dr. Fauci was a hysterical virus-hunter back then, just as he is now, and just as he was in the 1990s when he ratcheted up the HIV = AIDS racket (follow the money, folks). And still, even up to 2003, he called AIDS “a plague.”

Then Fauci, in 2006, called the bird flu “a time bomb waiting to go off.” The Narrative went the same way: Millions of people could die. (23 million people possible) We need to vaccinate the entire population immediately. We don’t have enough vaccinations. We’ll have to wait for the vaccination. And of course the whole bird flu scare was a sham from the get-go. Read “Virus Mania” (by Englebrecht and Kohnlein) and you will understand what and why. Here’s the quote from the LA Times:

If you listen to many of our health experts, you would already be cordoning off your house. Last month, Tennessee virologist Dr. Robert Webster, known for his research efforts as “the flu hunter,” insisted on national television that “society just can’t accept the idea that 50% of the population could die.”

This hysterical prophecy from a serious scientist compounded previous statements made by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who said bird flu is “a time bomb waiting to go off,” and Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who agrees with most experts that regarding a serious avian flu pandemic, “it’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when.” Even the cautious secretary of Health and Human Services, Mike Leavitt, recently let slip the alarmist notion that is was time to talk about closing schools and stockpiling tuna fish and powdered milk.

But the science on the H5N1bird flu virus may not support these conclusions.

…When our public health officials try too hard to warn us against the worst case, too often they forget that they are really scientists and not prophets.
