“Masking Guidance: Fully vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask on the White House grounds. Guests who are not fully vaccinated must wear a mask at all times and maintain at least 6 feet distance from others while on the White House grounds.”
The White House claimed the mandate was sent “inadvertently.” A more likely explanation is that allegedly retired Dr. Anthony Fauci, prime mover of vaccine and mask mandates, is still calling the shots. Sen. Rand Paul, a medical doctor and staunch critic of Fauci, thinks that might be the case.
Sen. Paul has sent a letter to Health and Human Services boss Xavier Becerra demanding to know “Dr. Fauci’s current employment status and whether he is still receiving certain taxpayer-funded benefits associated with active public service, such as legal counsel and protective services.”
The Kentucky Republican wants to know whether Dr. Fauci remains affiliated with HHS, NIH or other federal agencies, whether he can access non-public government facilities, and whether he is still taking a salary at taxpayer expense. These are all reasonable questions for one of the most powerful government bureaucrats in recent memory.
Anthony Fauci earned a medical degree in 1966 but in 1968 he took a cushy “yellow beret” job with the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Fauci’s bio showed no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry, but in 1984 the NIH made Dr. Fauci head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, inventor of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) regarded Fauci as unqualified for the post. Despite colossal failures, Fauci remained at the helm for nearly 40 years. During the pandemic, Fauci wielded executive-level power, to the point that Biden joked that Fauci was the “real president.” The NIAID boss, a promoter of lockdowns, was the primary source of Biden’s vaccine and mask policies.
“The one thing we do know is these masks make a gigantic difference,” Biden told reporters in June of 2020. “I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask.”
“This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” said Biden in a September 9, 2021 message. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us.” According to Biden, “as the science makes clear, if you’re fully vaccinated, you’re highly protected from severe illness, even if you get COVID-19.”
“There’s no reason for you to be walking around with a mask,” Dr. Fauci said during the pandemic. He then proclaimed that wearing masks, is “a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing.” On another occasion, Dr. Fauci recommended that people wear two face masks.
This is the man who claims “I represent science,” a Lysenko figure who takes megalomania to a whole new level. If Dr. Fauci continues to wield influence after allegedly retiring, that would not be unusual.
Former CIA director John Brennan charged that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation,” and former CIA directors Leon Panetta, Michael Hayden, John McLaughlin and Michael Morell also signed on. So did James Clapper, former director of national intelligence, and dozens of officials from the “intelligence community.”
It now emerges that Biden advisor Antony Blinken, now Secretary of State, concocted the letter to discredit the laptop story, which was not Russian disinformation. None of the intel officials have faced charges for false statements and neither have James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and other FBI and DOJ players in the Russia hoax.
Consider also the composite character David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama. Trump spoiled his plans for a third term under Hillary Clinton, but Obama released A Promised Land in November of 2020, with the addled and endlessly pliable Joe Biden in the White House.
In Obama’s fully transformed America, CIA and FBI bosses escape accountability and maintain influence even after retirement. In similar style, Dr. Fauci has claimed he was “not retiring in the official sense.” Like Sen. Paul, the people have reason to wonder if the NIAID boss remains on the payroll.
The White House vaccination and mask mandate is evidence that Dr. Fauci still calls the shots. In fully transformed America, white coat supremacy is a permanent condition.
