Who is the highest paid employee in the federal government?

The answer may shock you. 

Published

on

The federal government is undoubtedly a massive institution.

Out of its four million federal employees, have you ever thought about who makes the highest salary?

The answer may shock you.

No, it’s not Nancy Pelosi or even the President of the United States.

Rather, it’s a name we’ve all come to know well over the last year: Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Dr. Fauci made $417,608 in 2019, the last year for which federal salaries are publicly available. That makes him not only the highest paid doctor in the federal government, but the highest paid employee in total, Forbes reports.

Fauci even made more than the $400,000 salary of the president, which Donald Trump did not accept. Instead, he wrote checks equal to a quarter of his salary each quarter to various government agencies.

Fauci, Director of the National Institute for Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and current Chief Medical Advisor to the President will rake in a whopping $2.5 million from 2019 through 2024, so long as he stays in his position through the end of the Biden administration.

Between 2010 and 2019, Fauci made $3.6 million and since 2014, his pay increased from $335,000 to the current $417,608, according to Forbes.

In comparison to other government officials: Speaker Nancy Pelosi will earn $223,500 this year; U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will make $270,700; and House Representatives and Senators will make $174,000.

Federal government employee salaries are usually capped at level IV of the Executive Schedule, which was $172,500 in 2019; but, there are clearly exceptions.

Despite his common rifts with Donald Trump, polling has shown Dr. Fauci is the most trusted public figure in the U.S. for information pertaining to the pandemic and reliable information on COVID-19 vaccines.

    “Dr. Fauci is the most trusted public figure in the U.S. for information pertaining to the pandemic.” He should know a lot about it. Steve Hilton just proved that Dr. Fauci caused it.

    Who the hell did they poll? Not anyone that I know. He’s a typical government bureaucratic hack. I know – I once worked for the “gummit.”

    Fauchi is a fraud and a liar. Most people are like sheep. Unfortunately for them, most are following Fauchi right over the cliff. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a huge stake in the Merderna vaccine. Just saying….

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Published

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
