I’m in the middle of Robert F. Kennedy, jr.’s book entitled The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health. That’s quite a mouthful, as is the content of the book itself. It was released a couple of months ago and it’s already high on the New York Times bestseller’s list. If you haven’t read it you need to get a copy while the information is still fresh. The Real Anthony Fauci is more than just a work of non-fiction. It is a superbly-documented tome that in years to come will likely be considered the bible of the pandemic.
Robert Kennedy, jr. is no shrinking violet. I remember when his father, Robert Kennedy, sr. was the attorney general of the United States under his brother President John F. Kennedy. As A.G., Bobby went after the mafia when they were a more powerful force in our society. Bobby Kennedy, jr. is a no-nonsense lawyer himself, who has pursued justice against large corporations. He is up to the task. People may know him as an anti-vaccination warrior and that is, I suppose, what brought him to the forefront during these two godawful years. Kennedy has got the goods on Dr. Tony Fauci, Bill Gates, and the corrupt moguls of the large pharmaceutical firms and their compromised lackeys who are supposed to regulate them.
At 450 pages, the book is so thick and so well researched…and I am so uninitiated when it comes to medicine…that it ain’t exactly light reading. But it’s eminently informative. From what I have read so far, and from what I have gleaned elsewhere, it’s becoming clear that this pandemic of the coronavirus, Covid-19 has been orchestrated by ne’er-do-wells who took advantage of the opportunity to suppress the free practice of medicine by our doctors. And who thought nothing of scaring the hell out of women with children, and many men, too.
Tony Fauci…a name that is becoming increasingly difficult for me to say…used his position as chief medical advisor to the president for devilish purposes. He deliberately suppressed the use of cheap and effective generic medicines like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. When taken in the correct dosages soon after infection, those drugs are clearly effective toward early recovery from Covid-19. Fauci, and not only he, but other people in high places, directed the mind of the government to wait for the results of the hasty production of questionable mRNA vaccines, the expected silver bullet against the sickness. And the insufferable fourth estate dutifully acted as a fifth column to disseminated lies and suppress the truth. The vaccines were so hastily marketed without the proper testing protocols that the pharmaceutical company’s made damned sure that they wouldn’t be sued. Smart guys, eh? Now we know from the data that the vaccines are not effective and, in fact, have produced adverse events in thousands of those who have received the inoculations. But, oh the money they’ve made for a few lucky people!
Meanwhile, millions of people around the world have been subject to a universal infliction of lockdowns and cumbersome mandates by power-hungry governments, who themselves didn’t know a damned thing about medicine. Normal people freaked out in the face of a disease that was treatable. It was treatable! The masses quickly discarded their God-given right to think and decide for themselves what to do with themselves and their families. Thinking adults started acting like children, demanding that everybody around them act like children, too. Don’t think for a minute that the powers that be didn’t notice how quickly we panicked and how easily we were manipulated. They’ll do it again next time, so stay on your guard.
Now, this embarrassing period of betrayal and cowardice, sickness and death is almost over. It’s winter for us in the Northern Hemisphere and the Omicron variant is basically a bad cold, if you catch it. Nothing unusual there. In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has declared that there will be no more pandemic restrictions. Our own prevaricating administration has directed that hospitals no longer be required to report their numbers of daily dead from Covid. Or…was it with Covid? If I were a hospital administrator who knew that there was a financial bonanza to the tune of $37,000 to be gained for each victim of Covid, I would be sorely tempted to call any death with Covid a death from Covid. And, if I held the patent to remdesivir, a drug with a big windfall – as useless as it is – I might want hospitals to be required to administrate it to Covid patients. But that’s just me, I suppose. I could go on with the sarcasm.
There is a LOT to talk about here. If you love your country as much as I still do, then you’re going to want the answers to the same questions that I have. Never in my lengthening life have I experienced such a prolonged mass hysteria over a disease from which almost everyone recovers unless he has the usual comorbidities. So, my first question is in the title of this short essay: What in hell happened? And my second question is: Who was responsible? And a third: How can we make sure that it never happens again?

I’ve read the first 100 or so pages of Mr. Kennedy’s book. While I appreciate Mr. Kennedy’s extensive research that confirms his arguments, I have less positive regard for his inflammatory writing style. I suppose he can be forgiven his passion and obvious bias for the subject; however, being that I have read professional, scientific research journals for over 40 years, his non-objective writing style decreases his credibility. Because “The lady doth protest too much,” I find myself thinking about what he is not reporting on, what questions he doesn’t raise nor answer, rather than simply having my opinion be swayed by his points.
To give just one example, while Mr. Kennedy lauds the use of Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin as effective prophylactics against covid hospitalization when administered during early onset of the disease, he doesn’t address why these cheap and supposedly safe drugs that have been available for decades were not used for other flu viruses. Milder versions of covid have been around for decades (if not centuries), and though milder they can still cause hospitalization. If Hydro- and Iver- are so wonderful, why didn’t some savvy entrepreneur market them as flu remedies years ago before covid-19? Why didn’t the FDA approve the compounds for flu treatment when those drugs were still under patent? The potential profit would have been enormous, and that goes counter to Mr. Kennedy’s assertion that everything done by Big Pharma and their pawns, like Dr. Fauci, is purely driven by greed.
However, I’ll keep reading Mr. Kennedy’s book as I do find some of his points compelling, particularly from what I know about human psychology. What I find most heinous from what I’m reading is that people (particularly politicians, journalists, and even some scientists) will jump on a bandwagon if enough of the populous, or enough people in their field or cohort are of a particular mindset, or if someone in a position of authority is willing to spend enough money on their pet project. In other words, people who critically question and stand up to the majority, the group-think, or the authority mindset, or who refuse the bribes are remarkably few. Perhaps in that regard, Mr. Kennedy should be applauded.
