Fauci speaks to Congress. Will he be held accountable?

Isn’t it frustrating being accused of not believing in science because you dare to question things?

For several years, those who challenged the government’s COVID response have been wrongly labeled anti-science, selfish, and uncaring… even accused of wanting people to die.

But let’s set the record straight: questioning the narrative (especially from government scientists) is the essence of real science. True science thrives on skepticism, inquiry, and the searching for truth. It’s about refusing to accept anything without evidence. (Again… especially from the government.)

Over the past year, Anthony Fauci has admitted that his COVID recommendations weren’t even based in science. Yet, so many people believed him… because he was a top scientist for the government. (For those of you who have purchased our Guide to Logical Fallacies, you know that’s an “Appeal to Authority.”)

When asked about social distancing, Fauci admitted: “It sort of just appeared, that six feet is going to be the distance.” He wasn’t aware of any studies, and even conceded that actually studying social distancing would be very difficult.

His response about the science behind masking children wasn’t any better. He didn’t recall any studies he looked at regarding that. So the mantras and recommendations were coming from a scientist, but they weren’t rooted in science.

Things got even worse once the vaccine was offered. In 2021, as President Biden’s chief medical adviser, Fauci said, “It’s been proven that when you make it difficult for people in their lives, they lose their ideological bulls—t, and they get vaccinated.”

Where’s the science? Well, as we always knew, It was never about the science. It was about force and control. The typical government agenda.

Fauci, like all those in power, was able to do whatever he wanted because “we the people” let him get away with it. We got scared, and asked the government to keep us safe.

How bad was the corruption? There have been FOIA requests, but don’t be fooled into thinking that will tell us the full story. Fauci’s former aide created a “secret back channel” to communicate with him and others about things that “could cause trouble.” This included using personal email accounts or handing stuff to Fauci at his home. Buried secrets.

Fauci admitted this week to Congress that what his aide did was wrong. But why aren’t we holding Fauci accountable too? He knew he was receiving emails on his personal account. Why didn’t he stop his aide?

We know why. He didn’t want anyone to shine light on those emails that would cause trouble. Those darn FOIA requests make conspiracies harder to hide… but not impossible. Just use Gmail, it seems.

We may never know the full truth about COVID-19, but we can learn from history and not let it repeat. Government schools and mass-produced curriculum aren’t going to help; those in power want to keep each generation ignorant about history, so that those in power can continue repeating its mistakes.

Beyond reading our book on logical fallacies, make sure to read The Tuttle Twins and the Leviathan Crisis with your kids as it touches on this exact topic.

Or have your teens analyze news articles to find logical fallacies being used. Sit down at the family dinner table and have important, deep conversations. Use our Tuttle Times magazine conversation starters to guide you.

Share your beliefs. Share your values. Spread the truth to your children and other families. This is how we create a freer world, despite the Faucis of the world trying to stop our progress.
