Fauci is maybe the only man in Washington who stands as a better example of the Peter Principle than President Get Off My Lawn.
A smoking gun of paperwork connects his signature to Coronavirus funding research in Wuhan labs that may well have set the stage for the pandemic that made him into a celebrity. It was the same funding to China that was supposed to have been blocked but got funding anyway because it’s a gain-of-function that isn’t. Why? Because they retconned the definition of gain of function.
Whether he has perjured himself before Congress remains an open question that Republicans plan to investigate when they get the gavel back.
But Fauci is ever the opportunist, somehow ‘failing up’ after every instance of screwing the pooch.
He whiffed it on his AIDS response during the Reagan administration. And his refusal to address topics like early intervention of symptomatic patients, therapeutics, and natural immunity has been blamed for tens of thousands of needless American deaths.
Fauci has an awfully high view of himself, too. He has been comparing his role in the (failed) pandemic response to that of Eisenhower. He’s vital to the response, don’t you know? Without his ‘sage leadership’ flip-flopping us through the next phase, who knows HOW badly Biden could screw this up?
No, he’s not stepping down. He’s filled the political celebrity vacuum left by the disgraced exit of Avenatti, and he isn’t going to give that up quietly.
But when there’s no more fame to milk? He’s sitting pretty.
Anthony Fauci is set to rake in the highest-ever federal government retirement package in U.S. history with his annual payment exceeding $350,000, according to a Forbes estimate.
The White House’s top COVID adviser, who is 81, has shown no indications that he will retire any time soon after 55 years as a federal employee. Since 1984, Fauci has served as the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health.
If he retired today, Fauci would still earn $350,000 per year on retirement and his pension and benefits would continue to increase with cost-of-living adjustments, auditors at OpenTheBooks.com found in the Forbes review.
…In 2019, Fauci had a salary of $417,608 and in 2020 was bumped to $434,312 – giving him two consecutive years of being the highest compensated federal employee. Fauci even out-earned the president, four star generals and the rest of his roughly 4.3 million colleagues in the federal government. —DailyMail
That’s a helluva going-away package. Especially when you contrast it against the personal losses of everyone who has been fired for vaccine mandate non-compliance or whose small business has gone bust due to lockdowns.
He’s laughing all the way to the bank… and there’s nothing anybody can do about it.
Or is there?
If it can be shown that he was acting beyond his authority in allowing this funding to go to Wuhan in the first place — does that put him beyond the usual legal protections afforded to public servants?
Would that put him in jeopardy of class-action lawsuits from people his decisions have harmed?
Wouldn’t it be ironic if his overt partisan support for the party of wealth distribution resulted in his own significant wealth being divvied among those his decisions have harmed?
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
