(Republican Insider) – Dr. Anthony Fauci, the current White House chief medical adviser and the director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has become something of a household name over the course of the last two years, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, where he took the lead on informing our government’s policies for handling the illness.
However, according to a report from Western Journal, Fauci has actually been a mainstay at the agency for a very, very long time.
Fauci, who is now 81-years-old, has been working for the federal government for 55 years. He was first hired at the National Institutes of Health back in 1966 and was then named director of the NIAID in 1984.
In other words, Fauci has actually been a part of the progressive corruption within the federal government for much longer than our current oldest sitting president, who was first elected to office back in 1973. Let that sink in for a minute.
“So he has been there a long time, during which he has earned his place in the history books in more than one way, from his leading role in the AIDS crisis to his current leadership position in the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time, he has not only become one of the most talked-about public figures of our era; he’s also been pulling in the biggest paychecks in the history of the federal government,” the WJ report said.
Fauci has also been earning the largest pension payout in the history of the United States, meaning that he’s laughing all the way to the bank right now.
“Adam Andrzejewski, the CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com, recently reported for Forbes that analysts from his group calculated that although Dr. Fauci says he has no plans to retire until the pandemic is over, based on the last three years of his salary, he would earn the largest pension in the history of the U.S. federal government,” the report continued.
“Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com estimate Dr. Fauci’s annual retirement would exceed $350,000,” he said in his report. “Thereafter, his pension and benefits would continue to increase through annual cost-of-living adjustments.”
“For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues,” Andrzejewski continued to write. “As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019.”
In order to calculate the man’s potential retirement earnings, auditors used the last three years of the doctor’s salaries, $399,625 for 2018; $417,608 for 2019 and $434,312 for 2020 — a total of $1.252 million.
“If he’d left federal service at the end of FY2020, figuring 80% of his highest three-year average, would mean a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases (($1,251,545/3) x 80% = $333,745),” Andrzejewski went on to explain.
“However, Fauci’s unpublished FY2021 and FY2022 salaries are likely commensurate, if not higher than his 2020 salary. Therefore, his retirement pay would be closer to $347,500 a year. (($1,302,936/3) x 80%),” he said.
Back in November, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request on behalf of OpenTheBook.com, seeking to gain access to Fauci’s “currently unpublished 2021 salary, job description, royalties, conflict of interest and financial disclosures, and employment contract.”
A federal judge then decided for that production to kick off on Feb. 1, 2022. However, it’s important to note that Fauci is not planning to retire.
“There’s no way I’m going to walk away from this until we get this under control. I mean, that’s the purpose of what we do. That’s – that’s our mission in life. In the middle of it, I’m not going to walk away,” he recently said during an interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl.
In other words, he’s finally getting the attention he thinks he deserves and he’s just not ready to let that go. Especially at his age.
“You know, we’re in a war, Jon. It’s kind of like we’re halfway through World War II, and you decide, well, I think I’ve had enough of this. I’m walking away,” Fauci stated once again.
This is the same man who has already been suspected of lying to Congress concerning his work and history serving the NIH.
Back in May of this year, Fauci told Congress the agency “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Which seems to be a pretty big fib, because documents that were released to The Intercept as part of a FOIA lawsuit just happened to have two unpublished grant proposals for COVID research at the WIV that was funded by the NIH, all of which was reported on back in September.
“An expert that Newsweek spoke to at the time said that this type of research fell well within the realm of gain of function, rendering Fauci’s statement before Congress earlier this year potentially false,” the WJ said.
Does this seem like the kind of guy who has truly earned a nice, fat pension and easy retirement? A man who has lied through his teeth on almost a constant basis?
“What’s more, he’s been raking in this staggering salary and gilding his golden parachute by advocating for economy-crushing public health policy like lockdowns, school closures and vaccine mandates, placing the employment and welfare of millions of taxpaying Americans at risk as he tries to play God with our lives to stop the spread of a virus that, in spring of 2020, he was telling us not to worry about,” the WJ report pointed out.
What a smack to the chops of every hard working American in this country.
