Who is the highest paid employee in the federal government?

The answer may shock you. 

Published

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….

    TRY living on our real American wages of $25,000 a year raising a family. WE are already taxed to death here and WE don’t get to ever give us raises. Try living in our lives and making a paycheck last to cover ALL expenses..Good luck with that you crooks.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

Published

BLM

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
