White Coat Supremacist

That's what Lloyd Billingsley calls Tony Fauci. I've harped on Fauci's lack of credible credentials for the position he holds. Below are links to three articles that amount to quite the expose of Fauci. The offered excerpts are brief, as compared to the full articles, so if you're interested ...

White Coat Supremacist Anthony Fauci Still Wears Yellow Beret

In 1968, newly minted doctor joined NIH to dodge medical service with the U.S. military.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, has become quite the celebrity in America. Even so, as the COVID-19 pandemic winds down, key aspects of Fauci’s career remain largely unknown to the people.

Fauci earned a medical degree at Cornell in 1966 but if he ever practiced medicine it was only for a short time. As Raymond S. Greenberg explains at, the mid-1960s were the days of  “a compulsory draft of American physicians,” to serve in military hospitals in Vietnam. One of the few alternatives to that service was a position in the Public Health Service. Newly minted physicians could join the clinical associate program at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

These doctors were dubbed “Yellow Berets,” the opposite numbers of the special forces Green Beret troops in Vietnam. ...


Fauci’s bio showed no advanced degrees in biochemistry or molecular biology but by 1984 the Yellow Beret was heading the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID). Back in the 1990s Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, inventor of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR),  said Fauci “doesn’t understand electron microscopy and he doesn’t understand medicine. He should not be in a position like he’s in.”

As Michael Fumento noted in The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS, Fauci was hopelessly wrong that AIDS would ravage the heterosexual population. As UC Berkeley molecular biologist Peter Duesberg showed in Inventing the AIDS Virus, Fauci was a pioneer of cancel culture, quashing media appearances by better qualified persons of different views. Despite his costly blunders, Fauci remained in his “cushy job” at the head of NIAID, with steadily increasing salary and power.

When Tony Met Kary

According to a Nobel laureate, Dr. Anthony Fauci should not even be an unelected bureaucrat.

For most of 2020, Dr. Fauci claimed that to reach herd immunity about 60 to 70 percent of the nation would need a vaccine. Then in a December 24 interview with the New York Times, Fauci said he had been looking at “polls” showing that only half of all Americans would take a vaccine. Fauci thought, “I can nudge this up a bit,” and boosted the number for herd immunity to 80-85 percent. That caught the attention of Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican. 

Fauci “made the decision to mislead with nothing but good intentions,” said Rubio in December 30 Fox News opinion piece. “However, let’s be clear about what he was doing: lying to the American people in order to manipulate their behavior.”

Fauci is an “unelected technocrat,” Rubio wrote, and “if he wants to lead the nation, he should run for office.” If not, “he should give us an honest and transparent reading of the science, not polling data, and let the rest of us —policymakers and the American people who have elected them — do our jobs.”

That long overdue smackdown was hardly the first Fauci had received. Back in the 1990s, one of the world’s leading scientists held doubts that Fauci  should even be an unelected bureaucrat.

“This man thinks you can take a blood sample and stick it in an electron microscope and if it’s got a virus in there, you will know it. He doesn’t understand electron microscopy and he doesn’t understand medicine. He should not be in a position like he’s in.”

That is the view of the late Kary Mullis, who earned a PhD in biochemistry from UC Berkeley and won a Nobel Prize in 1993 for his invention of the polymerase chain reaction, [i.e., PCR] a discovery “of major importance in both medical research and forensic science.” Besides the Nobel Prize, Mullis has received, among others, the 1992 Koch Award for excellence in biomedical science, and in 1993 the Japan Prize for the advancement of science and technology. In 2000, the Palau Islands honored Mullis with a stamp.

Anthony Fauci earned a medical degree in 1966 but in 1968 he took a job with the with the National Institutes of Health. Fauci’s bio shows no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry, so strictly speaking he is not a virologist. Even so, Fauci has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984, when Ronald Reagan was president of the United States.

According to Mullis, bureaucratic types like Fauci have a “personal kind of agenda. They make up their own rules as they go. They change them when they want to.” Furthermore, “Tony Fauci does not mind going on television in front of the people, face out, and lie directly into the camera.” According to Sen. Rubio, Fauci is still performing the same act, but there’s more to it.

Doctors, Doctored Numbers, and Democracy [Angelo Codevilla]


President Trump, as well as the governors of some states, have been stampeded out of their common sense into shutting down the country until further notice. The bureaucratic-media complex has done this on the supposed basis of medical authority. But the doctors have not been speaking as doctors on the basis of knowledge of the human body while offering cures or even palliatives. No. Their judgments are based on speculation about the meaning of mathematical models.

They are not acting like good doctors but rather like bad politicians.

Fauci showed how thoroughly he and his cohorts have subordinated common sense to bureaucratic authority. Having strenuously campaigned to deny the usefulness of hydroxychloroquine, having been confronted by the fact that physicians on the front lines of the battle against the virus are using it themselves, and having been asked whether he—were he to come down with illness from the virus—would use it, he weakly conceded that he would but only as part of an approved study. He cared less about describing what the drug can do and can not do than about affirming his agency’s and the FDA’s prerogatives.

Backed by the media, Fauci and company have contended that actions by anybody, ordinary citizens, elected officials, or physicians that do not follow proper bureaucratic procedures are illegitimate. Who the hell do they think they are? 


  1. In other words, Fauci is more politician than scientist. His boss, Francis Collins, is the real deal though. And I would note that Collins publicly stated that Donald Trump deserved credit for the vaccine program that was a resounding success. Fauci could never acknowledge the same.

  2. Don't forget the other VERY smart person (of the 2 very smart persons came into my office, per President Trump)who went to President Trump's office with Fauci to convince him to shut down the country Dr. Birx. Bad modeling numbers caused this mess in out country.
