Fauci Earned More than Presidents, Four Star Generals in 2020 and Set to Receive Largest Federal Retirement in History

Anthony Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci is set to get the largest retirement package in federal government history. In 2020 Fauci made $434,312 which is more than the President and all four-star generals. Additionally, if the 81-year old retired today, he would continue to earn $350,000 per year on retirement and pension and benefits would increase with cost-of-living adjustments, reports Forbes.

Fauci has served 55 years as a federal employee, and since 1984 has been the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAIS) at the National Institute of Health. It seems he has no plans of retiring or slowing down soon.

“I’m going to keep doing that until this COVID-19 outbreak is in the rearview mirror, regardless of what anybody says about me, or wants to lie and create crazy fabrications because of political motivations,” Fauci told CBS’ Face the Nation last month.

The Drill Down with Peter Schweizer writes about the divisive political figure that Fauci has become:

Fauci has been an incredibly divisive character, with Democrats heralding him as savior and Republicans labeling him a power-hungry narcissist.

“I’m a Fauci groupie. I’m a thrice-vaccinated, mask adherent. I buy KN95 masks by the, you know, caseload. They’re in every pocket. I wear them everywhere except when I sit down,” says MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace.

But not everyone is so hot on Fauci…

“I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now because [Fauci’s] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,” says Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

“Dr. Fauci, I think, is the most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of the country. […] I don’t think anyone has hurt science, has hurt the credibility of the CDC, has hurt the credibility of doctors, more than Dr. Fauci because throughout this pandemic, he’s been dishonest,” says Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“I didn’t create political divisiveness,” Fauci says. “And that’s the thing we’re dealing with. We’re dealing with the uncomfortable but real element of political divisiveness at a time when we are in the middle of a war against a virus.”

If we’re at war, Tony, you’re one of the worst generals we’ve ever seen —certainly undeserving of the largest federal retirement package in history.

    Horse Apples. Federal Retirement pay should be capped at 100K for the high and mighty in the government food chain.

    I think he should get a good retirement package. 3 meals a day, Bed and board, calm relaxation with all his new friends. You know, the other inmates.

    Flip-flopping Fauci is an overpaid bureaucrat with a Napoleon complex.

    Hey dummy. KN95 masks are for construction-type jobs. You need N95. And you need to make sure they’re not from China. The American-made N95’s are about $2 a day. If you’ve got the extra $120/mo, go for it. Remember when you wear them, YOU’RE protected, so it’s no concern of yours to berate others.

Biden Admin Announces First COVID Shots For Kids Under 5 Likely By June 21

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that children under 5 will be able to get their first COVID-19 vaccination doses as soon as June 21, if regulators authorize the shots for this age group as expected.

According to the Associated Press, White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha “said the Food and Drug Administration’s outside panel of advisers will meet on June 14-15 to evaluate the Pfizer and Moderna shots for younger kids. Shipments to doctors’ offices and pediatric care facilities would begin soon after FDA authorization, with the first shots possible the following week.”

Jha added that states can begin placing orders for the pediatric vaccines on Friday and the administration will initially have 10 million doses available.

“Our expectation is that within weeks every parent who wants their child to get vaccinated will be able to get an appointment,” Jha said. “At the end of the day we all want to move fast, but we’ve got to get it right.”

The news comes the week after Pfizer announced that three doses of their vaccine offers strong protection against COVID-19 in children under 5.  However, according to former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a third dose is unnecessary because the vaccines do not prevent infection.

“I think the decision matrix has changed around the vaccine for [ages] 6 months to 4 years old and so far as we know that the vaccine isn’t as protective at preventing infection,” Gottlieb said. “Previously, we had data showing that the childhood vaccine for 6 months to 4 years wasn’t as protective against infection as the adult vaccine.”

“That’s the reason why they pushed it out and asked for that third dose. But now, if the goal of the vaccine is to get baseline immunity in the kids to prevent really bad outcomes, and you’re really not using the vaccine as a tool to prevent infection in the first place, two doses could do that,” he added.

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”
