It is now official:
Anthony Fauci has been
"sidelined" by president Trump...
This is nothing new.
Dr. Fauci has not been fired as head of

whether this new appointment will trigger a significant shift in US
government policy regarding Covid-19.

him. And Fauci has no intention to resign from his position as

Diseases (NIAID) which plays a central role in the
management of the pandemic together with the CDC headed by Dr.

Fauci's Out and Common Sense Might be Returning

Trump blocks Fauci
from answering question
about drug Trump is touting
These days it seems there is not much good news out there.
People are still
panicked over the coronavirus, governments are still trampling
civil liberties in the name of fighting the virus, the economy -
already teetering on the edge of collapse - has been kicked to
the ground by what history may record as one of the worst
man-made disasters of all time:
shutting down the
country to fight a cold virus...
That's why we'll take
good news wherever we can get it, and President Trump's hiring
of Dr. Scott Atlas to his coronavirus task force may just
be that good news we need.
As the media has
reported, President Trump has sidelined headline-hogging
Anthony Fauci in favor of Atlas, the former Stanford
University Medical Center chief of neuroradiology.
Recall, Fauci was the "expert" who told us a few months ago

forecasts, and assessments proved to be wildly wrong,
contradictory, and just plain bizarre:
When Anthony Fauci
demanded a lockdown of the economy for an indefinite
period he actually seemed oblivious to the havoc it
would wreak on the economy and on people's lives.
People like Fauci and
others who demanded
stay-at-home orders were still collecting their
paychecks, so what did they care about anyone else?
Dr. Scott Atlas is not only a former top physician and
hospital administrator: as a senior fellow at the Hoover
Institution he also understands the policy implications of
locking a country down.
On April 22, Dr. Atlas wrote an op-ed in The Hill titled,
data is in - Stop the panic and end the total isolation."
In the article he
