Democratic Senator To Introduce Legislation To Protect Fauci From ‘Politically Motivated’ Firing

Published

on

Sen. Ed Markey intends to introduce a new bill that would help protect Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the leading members of the White House coronavirus task force from being fired for political reasons.

The proposal, which was announced on Tuesday, is a response to Trump sharing a tweet on his social media pages that called for Fauci’s firing after the doctor pointed the finger for the slow response of the federal government to COVID-19 as being the president’s fault.

Administration officials were asked if the president was going to give Fauci the boot, but the White House responded in a statement saying there was no such intention by Trump.

If the bill is passed, it would keep the president from handing Fauci a pink slip by preventing him from firing a director of any national research institute or national center that is underneath the National Institute of Health, “on the basis of malfeasance by, neglect of office by, or incapacity of the director.”

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

“Trump has an allergy to both — science and the truth. Our response to the coronavirus crisis must be based on science, on data, and on the truth. We cannot allow Donald Trump to silence Dr. Fauci or any other government scientists,” Markey said in a statement titled “Senator Markey to Introduce Legislation to Protect Dr. Tony Fauci, Research Institute Heads from Politically-Motivated Termination.”

He added, “Educating the public about the science and the facts that will save lives is not, and should never be, a firing offense.”

Fauci himself has addressed the remarks he made over the weekend by saying that the use of the term “pushback” was “the wrong choice of words.” He went on to add that this clarification was not due to any sort of pushback he received from President Trump.

Surgeon General Says They ‘Don’t Know’ if J&J Vaccine Caused Blood Clots

This certainly isn’t going to bode well for vaccine hesitancy.

As Americans prepare to pull themselves out of this coronavirus nightmare, and drag our economy back to the table while they’re at it, experts have long suggested that mass vaccinations could be the key to jumpstarting this much-needed reboot. This is no small task, of course, with research and development being rushed by Big Pharma to make way for the government to get involved in distribution.  That’s the sort of sentence that makes many Americans shudder with fear, knowing that neither of these gargantuan entities have a tendency to look out for the little guy. So, when the CDC announced earlier this week that they were suggesting a pause in the use of a COVID-19 vaccine made by J&J, all on account of some rare but scary side effects, many of us wondered if this would be a set back the threatens our national recovery plan. As if the vaccine’s side effects weren’t enough of an issue, the US Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, has suggested on CNN that health experts aren’t even sure if the vaccine had anything to do with the reported maladies. Murthy said, “[W]hat we are trying to figure out right now is whether these unfortunate cases of clots are, in fact, related to the vaccine itself.” Murthy said, “So, the reason to pause, Anderson, there are a couple of reasons: One is to do the investigation quickly, to understand whether there’s a connection between the vaccine and the adverse events. But there’s another reason as well to pause, which is to give us time to speak to the medical community, to doctors, nurses, and others who are taking care of patients so we can enlist their help in looking for the kind of symptoms we may be concerned about and then have them report it.”…

Antifa Arrives in Minnesota, Amplifying Nightly Violence

Antifa is very real, no matter what the leftist trolls on social media say.

One of the most inane political arguments today seems to revolve around whether or not Antifa exists. How this is even in question is seriously concerning.  Those who self-identify as members of the group coordinate their appearance to declare their presence, carry flags bearing the Antifa logo, and have no problem organizing their antics online under the name. But, all too often, you’ll find someone on social media taking offense to this, declaring that Antifa is not an organization, but, rather, a culture or lifestyle choice. The reason for this purposeful deception is simple:  It give supporters of Antifa an out when it comes to the violence that they tend to amplify when they arrive to exploit some poor city’s recent troubles.  It give the internet trolls behind the movement a 4th wall to hide behind when things get heated. In the suburbs of Minneapolis this week, the group seemed to have no qualms about letting the world know that they had arrived to make trouble. Members of the violent far-left activist group Antifa identified themselves to a Fox News reporter who was on scene in Brooklyn Center, Minn., ahead of another night of unrest following the police-involved shooting of a motorist on Sunday. Correspondent Mike Tobin joined “The Ingraham Angle” to give the latest from the scene where throngs of protesters and law enforcement faced off following the reportedly accidental shooting death of Daunte Wright, 20, by now-resigned Officer Kimberly Potter. Potter has said she meant to reach for her taser instead of her gun while involved in an altercation with Wright at his car. The agitators left no doubt about their allegiances. Tobin, who was relocating to another part of the town at the time, spoke to Ingraham from inside a vehicle. “I can tell you this. The makeup of…
