Dispatches from the War: To Dr. Scott Atlas and Dr. John Ioannidis

An idea whose time has come: THE NEW CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE.

Opposing the one headed up by Tony Fauci.

Will you two men launch it?

Or will you stand pat and play a losing hand?

To my readers: I hope some of you will contact these two doctors and urge them to launch a vitally needed counter-offensive.

These ARE the times that try men’s souls.

I reach out to you two men because you have high-ranking credentials.

And because you know, and you’ve proven, that the COVID story is vastly overblown, and the containment measures are destructive.

You can stand firm with the realization that you’re right; you can also step forward and make a new bold move.

I hope you realize the extent of the economic wreckage America is enduring, and the human destruction which is mounting every day. I also hope you understand the partial reopening of the economy is far from a guarantee for our immediate future.

At the whim and behest of public health officials, who launch one lie after another, governors and mayors could order new lockdowns and new outrageous fines for breaking their rules of conduct.

And so I suggest you gather together distinguished colleagues and form a new coronavirus task force. Which is exactly what you would call it.

Yes, it would be unofficial, but apparently so are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness these days. We scrabble to get them where we can.

After setting up a website, you would launch a counter-offensive against Tony Fauci and his merry band of rabid falsifiers.

EVERY DAY, you would aggressively publish new findings and new criticisms of official positions and data.

I assure you, within weeks, the whole world would be paying attention. Including presidents, kings, and legislatures.


The world of science was never actually divorced from the real world—and in these times, the connection is as vital as it has ever been.

Unlike that abysmal failure, Neil Ferguson, and his colleagues in the computer modeling game, who assert their findings are entirely separate from ensuing government decisions, true scientists are willing to come forward and bring fascist political leaders to heel, if they can.

And you can.

Your reach would be a sight to behold.

The country and the world are crashing. We are told 28 million US families have not yet paid their full rents for July, and are on the verge of eviction. And that is just the edge of the disaster.

It is all stemming from a concocted official story about a virus.

At the moment, the US federal government (and many other governments) is captive. A bloodless coup has occurred.

You two men, and the colleagues you assemble, could strike, strike hard, and often.


Some of your strongest allies, if you reach out to them, would be county sheriffs. A sheriff is basically in charge of law enforcement in his territory. Some American sheriffs have refused to enforce lockdowns and other restraining measures.

They stand on the Constitution. You stand on science. The meeting of the two is a very potent force.

I know, and you know, scientists who wouldn’t want to “get their hands dirty” by forming such alliances. This is a tragic mistake, born out of disdain and fear.

These are perilous times. I know that within you live the courage and the desire to protect the freedom on which, of course, the very existence of your scientific work depends.

That freedom was born out of blood and sacrifice and intelligence, over the course of centuries. Standing on all those shoulders, you can make a brave move now.

People of science who can now use their reputations and insight to make their actions count, and try to save society from descending into overt fascism, are of great value.

I hope you understand.


Scott W. Atlas, MD, is the Robert Wesson Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. John Ioannidis, MD, is the co-director of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford University.

I write all of the above in an effort to reach two men. Obviously, there are others, whose reputations also make them ideal candidates for THE NEW CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE. They would have to be prepared to step out of their esteemed university chairs and research centers and waylay the interlopers who have stolen medical science and twisted it into weapons of war.

The days of the idyllically protected Ivory Tower are drawing to a close. Academics must come down and enter the fray—not to compromise their findings, but to make them count in the struggle.

THIS is the advantage Tony Fauci is pressing. He HAS come down. He understands weaponry.

The public battlefield cannot be left to him and his ilk.

One of my earliest published articles, in 1982, was an interview with Bill Perry, a bright PR man who had just quit the plumb job of his life at Lawrence Livermore Labs, where they do nuclear weapons research.

Those were the days of the Nuclear Freeze movement. Every morning, Bill watched silent protestors standing outside his building. As the weeks passed, Bill told me, he was surprised to see more people wearing business clothes showing up. The middle class. It was unnerving.

A decisive moment arrived when he passed the desk of a physicist who began complaining about lack of funding. Bill said, echoing the sentiments of the protestors, “Why do you need more money? You can already blow up the world four times.”

The physicist pointed to his desk and his papers. “You don’t understand,” he said. “These are MATHEMATICAL problems.”


They are, when the separation between scientists and the people is as wide as an ocean.

In case you think the comparison of nuclear weapons and the lockdowns is off the mark, what we have been seeing is the equivalent of a neutron bomb. It wipes out the people but leaves the buildings standing.
