Dr. Fauci’s pen$ion — thanks to kickbacks & “bio-defense”
The military-industrial complex meets the medical-industrial complex
Dr. Anthony Fauci — America’s deadliest mass murderer (with the possible exception of Henry Kissinger) — is leaving his position as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
In that job, his salary was $456,028 in 2021 — higher than the President of the United States. In fact, Fauci is the highest paid on-the-books U.S. federal employee ever.
Side note: Fauci’s wife, Christine Grady, works (un-ironically, I assume) as the Chief of Bioethics (!) at NIH with an annual salary of $234,284.
When Fauci steps down, his retirement pay is estimated to be more than $355,000 annually — the largest federal retirement pension in history (not counting all those annual cost-of-living adjustments).
His net worth right now is over $10 million and this will likely grow if he writes his inevitable memoirs.
And let’s not forget all the money he gets paid to shepherd vaccines through the laughable FDA approval process. Here’s an excerpt from The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health, by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.:
This helps to explain how Fauci stayed in power so long, why he was paid so much, and why he just keeps doubling down whenever he’s caught in endless lies and deceptions.
But there’s more (there’s always more)…
Fauci authored a paper in April 2000 called “Expanded Biodefense Role for the National Institutes of Health” (read it here).
The abstract begins: “The President's Budget for fiscal year 2003 contains $4 billion for the NIAID, a $1.5 billion increase over the 2002 allocation and the largest single increase for an Institute in the history of the NIH. The NIAID budget includes $1.7 billion for defending against bioterrorism.”
Dr. Fauci was approved for a “permanent pay adjustment” in excess of his regular salary in December 2004, during the George W. Bush Administration. From 2004 through 2007, Fauci received a 68 percent pay increase from $200,000 to $335,000 per year. This award was permanent and carried forward to this day. Fauci’s pay raise was to “appropriately compensate him for the level of responsibility… especially as it relates to his work on biodefense research activities.”
In case you were wondering about Fauci’s refusal to own up to gain-of-function research at the labs he supervises and funds, well… you know, it’s “national security” and all that.
So, again… how did Fauci stay in power so long, why was he paid so much, and why did he just keep doubling down whenever he was caught in endless lies and deceptions?
You can chalk a lot of it up to bio-defense — the intersection of the military-industrial complex and the medical-industrial complex.
Translation: Fauci makes millions of dollars as he destroys the lives of millions of humans.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you “America’s doctor.”
