Dr. Mengelfauci: Pinocchio, Puppeteer, or Both? – by Margaret Anna Alice –

“A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolved, and the people recovering their true sight, restoring their government to its true principles. It is true, that in the meantime, we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war, and long oppressions of enormous public debt.”

—Thomas Jefferson, 1798, after the passage of the Sedition Act

It’s easy to imagine Dr. Mengelfauci as the prototypical Pinocchio, his dimpled nose jutting out another inch every time he spouts a new lie, but really he’s more like Mangiafuoco, the waffling puppet-master of the Great Marionette Theatre in Carlo Collodi’s 1883 The Adventures of Pinocchio.1 Or maybe he’s both, as no doubt his strings are being pulled by shadow puppet-masters whose names we may never know.

Pinocchio is a pathological prevaricator who is not only implausibly dense but an incompetent liar to boot. His lies are so transparent and contradictory as to be laughable. On those counts, Dr. Mengelfauci is a match.

Where he doesn’t align with both the original Italian and Disney versions is in the marionette’s genuine remorse for his wicked deeds and his ardent desire to reform, ultimately leading to his redemptive transformation into a human being—a metamorphosis unlikely to befall today’s wooden fabulist.

Spin Doctor Fauci is still clinging to his pedestal, his nose growing longer by the microsecond as he slings more lies to camouflage the festering heap of fetid falsehoods in the corner.

A Cabinet of Confabulations

We all know the flippety-floppety fabrications. Below is just a sampling:2

I can’t help but think of the Kids in the Hall courtroom skit where Dave Foley’s character blatantly lies on the stand, gloating, “This is so easy!”

Maskerading as Science

As if Dr. Mengelfauci didn’t already have enough of a god complex, he has now equated himself with Science—thus, questioning his perpetually fluctuating and highly suspect statements is equivalent to “science denial”:

“It’s very dangerous, Chuck, because a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me quite frankly are attacks on science.… If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science.… Science and the truth are being attacked.” (@ 5:21)

Throughout the interview, Chuck Todd sets up the scripted card-stacking questions so Dr. Mengelfauci can deliver his prepared rejoinders, complete with a surfeit of trusty propaganda techniques, including transfer device, stereotyping, character assassination, and milieu control.

George Orwell sums up the art of deception succinctly, as ever:

“Political language … is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidarity to pure wind.”

Third Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels’s oft-cited formula bears repeating (no pun intended):

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    What a pleasant surprise to discover another one of my articles at American Digest today! Thank you, Gerard, for publishing my work, once again.

    I emailed you about this, but in case this reaches you sooner, I wanted to alert you that the first section of the article is duplicated (from the opening quote to the “Spin Doctor Fauci” paragraph. Just a heads-up in case you’d like to fix that.

    • Margaret Anna Alice October 16, 2021, 10:31 AM

      Wow, already fixed! Thanks for taking care of that so quickly.

      • Vanderleun October 16, 2021, 11:23 AM

        Never post before coffee.

        • Margaret Anna Alice October 16, 2021, 11:51 AM

          😆Good advice!

        • Mike Austin October 17, 2021, 9:11 AM

          My daily plan:

          I never write before coffee. What sort of rough beast would slouch toward Bethlehem without first downing a cup of Joe? The thought alone frightens.

          I never write after Bourbon. That would be around 4 PM. Of course, that is only a personal goal . I don’t always succeed.

          • Margaret Anna Alice October 17, 2021, 12:57 PM

            You’re hilarious, Mike.

            • Mike Austin October 17, 2021, 3:49 PM

              It’s past 4 PM, so it’s past “The Hour of Bourbon”. On my 4th glass. All is well. How could it not be after four glasses of booze?

    Fauci and Birx. Two completely wasted medical degrees. Sad, when one thinks of those could have occupied their slots in med school. Real doctors who would have actually contributed something beneficial for all of us. But no. Just used their credentials to perpetrate a grift for themselves and abuse the authority granted to them.

  • PA Cat October 16, 2021, 2:48 PM

    It’s worth noting that fauci in Italian can mean either the maw or jaws of a predatory beast (la cavità orale, spec. di un animale feroce) or the mouth of a volcano (il punto in cui una cavità naturale comunica con l’esterno: le fauci di un vulcano).


    No such thing as too much schadenfreude where the Big Mouth is concerned: the new Disney/NatGeo documentary about Fauci has had to have its ratings faked by IMDb in order to cover up the flood of negative reviews. Extended-length trailer posted at the link for anyone needing an emetic: https://citizenfreepress.com/breaking/rotten-tomatoes-hates-the-fauci-documentary/

    • Margaret Anna Alice October 16, 2021, 3:07 PM

      PA Cat, wow, thanks for sharing the fascinating and eerily appropriate etymology of “fauci”! And yes, I did see that story about Rotten Tomatoes—reminds me of how YouTube removed the downvoting option after one of Biden’s speeches got ratioed. They can keep manipulating the interfaces to attempt to hide reality, but the people are making their voices heard!

      *lol* re: the trailer. Yeah, I don’t think I could bear it but good to have on hand in case I accidentally swallow some poison 😉

      • PA Cat October 16, 2021, 3:27 PM


        Feel free to use the etymology of Fauci’s name the next time you write about him– it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. As for the documentary trailer– I got through only a minute or so before I had to quit, and I thought I had a strong stomach. I just hope they don’t make a sequel called “When Tony Met Joe” or some such guff.

        • Margaret Anna Alice October 16, 2021, 3:33 PM

          🤣🤣 Thanks, PA Cat, and I will definitely be keeping that tidbit handy!

          • Mike Austin October 17, 2021, 1:32 PM

            “When Tony Met Joe”. Sounds like a flick popular with Pete Buttigieg and his “types”.

  • Mike Austin October 17, 2021, 5:34 AM

    Fauci is a dwarfish and mendacious creep. His entire being, all of his mind, soul and body, are consumed with lies. In this he honors his mentor, “The Father of Lies”.

    It should be noted that this weird and entirely unattractive little man is a hater of God—of course. Fauci hates God so publicly and so defiantly that the American Humanist Association—now there are a bunch of professional God haters!—gave him its award of “Humanist of the Year” (2021). Read what these grimy little barbarians believe:


    I could hardly get through it without reaching for my revolver.

    I often wonder if such creatures like Fauci actually believe what they spew out publicly. Did Goebbels? Did Obama? Did the Clintons? Do Biden and his acolytes? Does the FBI? Do the media? Not that it matters, for all of these beasts serve the Prince of the Power of the Air.

    • Margaret Anna Alice October 17, 2021, 11:24 PM

      Goebbels was proud of his talent for propagating big lies, and Obama is a disciple of Saul Alinsky, who dedicates “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer. The Clintons, well, please. Biden has always been for sale to the highest bidder, and the alphabet agencies specialize in deception. The media is a pay-for-hire mass hypnosis machine. So yeah, I think they all know, and these soulless sociopathic sorcerers and succubi delight in their depravity.

  • Debbie Neverwood October 17, 2021, 11:16 PM

    Little EEFER is pure evil, satin. Look into his eyes. They are dark and full of hate. I look forward to this idiots demise. Wake up sheep, your leader is a fake…

    • Margaret Anna Alice October 17, 2021, 11:29 PM

      I just saw someone refer to him as “the nation’s top virologist.” I am flabbergasted that people still bow down to him. The sheeple’s capacity for self-deception is unparalleled.

  • SoylentGreen October 18, 2021, 5:51 AM

    As @Clif_High would say, “The wolves have now dropped their sheepskins and are running naked toward the finish line.”

    Another shoe drops on Fauci: “Molecular biologist Richard H. Ebright on Wednesday [10/20/21] posted a letter from the National Institute of Health (NIH) showing that an NIH grant did fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, contrary to what Dr. Anthony Fauci had testified to the Senate [emphasis ed.]. . . . Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), whose questioning had led to Fauci’s denial that NIH was funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in May, tweeted: ‘”I told you so” doesn’t even begin to cover it here.’ Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), who was mocked for suggesting the coronavirus might have escaped from the Wuhan lab, also weighed in on NIH’s letter, tweeting, ‘Fauci knew. He should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.'”
