According to federal salaries data available for last year, Anthony Fauci is the highest paid employee in the entire US government. In fact, Dr. Fauci even made more than the salary of the President of the United States.
Dr. Anthony Fauci made $417,608 in 2019, the latest year for which federal salaries are available. That made him not only the highest paid doctor in the federal government, but the highest paid out of all four million federal employees.
In fact, Dr. Fauci even made more than the $400,000 salary of the President of the United States. All salary data was collected by OpenTheBooks.com via Freedom of Information Act requests.
Only federal employees whose salaries were funded by taxpayers were included in the study.
$2.5 million. That’s how much Dr. Fauci, Director of the National Institute for Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and current Chief Medical Advisor to the President, will make in salary from 2019 through 2024, if he stays in his post through the end of the current Administration, and doesn’t (or didn’t already) get a raise.

In a ten-year period between 2010 and 2019, Fauci made $3.6 million in salary. Since 2014, Fauci’s pay increased from $335,000 to the current $417,608, as reported by Forbes.
It was the project backed-up by Dr. Anthony Fauci that diverted US funds to engineer Coronavirus at Wuhan lab via a company now under federal investigation.
American tax-dollars were used to fund controversial gain-of-function research, which is the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans.
In 2019, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the organization led by Dr. Fauci, funded scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other institutions for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses
With the backing of NIAID, the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7 million over six years for research that included some gain-of-function work. The program followed another $3.7 million, 5-year project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4 million.
The NIH research consisted of two parts. The first part began in 2014 and involved surveillance of bat coronaviruses, and had a budget of $3.7 million. The program funded Shi Zheng-Li, a virologist at the Wuhan lab, and other researchers to investigate and catalogue bat coronaviruses in the wild. This part of the project was completed in 2019.
A second phase of the project, beginning that year, included additional surveillance work but also gain-of-function research for the purpose of understanding how bat coronaviruses could mutate to attack humans.
Similar controversial research was also conducted by Dutch Virologist Ron Fouchier, a controversial figure in the field of Viroscience. Ron Fouchier created world’s deadliest virus strain and his research sparked a global controversy to de-fund and shutdown such experiments. Experts have raised concerns legally that such experiments could not only lead to a global pandemic but could also lead to bio-terrorism.

The Night Before Christmas 2020
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The facemasks were hung by the handwipes with care,
In fears that DOC FAUCI soon would be there.
The children on lockdown all snug in their beds,
While visions of side-effects danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for our freedom’s last lap.
When out in the street there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the gunsafe I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The glow on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Gave the lustre of mid-day to burning below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But Antifa, BLM, and the CDC were all here.
With a socialist driver, so planned and so slick,
I knew in a moment it wasn’t St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his methods they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.
“Now, CENSOR! now, VACCINATE! now, VOTE STEAL and THREATEN!
On, WRISTBAND! on BARCODE! on QUANTUM DOTS – I’m bettin’!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the White-House the ChiComs they flew,
With the sleigh full of Dems, and Rino traitors too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
The popping and pinging of each little poof.
As I drew in my hand, and was cycling a round,
Down the chimney Satan then came with a bound.
He was dressed all in scrubs, from his head to his foot,
And his soul was all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of needles he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a provider just opening his pack.
His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how hairy!
His cheeks were like roses, but his face wasn’t merry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up in a show,
And the beard of his chin was fire red, you may know.
The stump of our freedom he held tight in his teeth,
And the lies they encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of Helly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
But I gasped when I saw him, in spite of myself.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know we would soon all be dead.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the needles; then jabbed me with a jerk.
And laying his finger inside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the thorns of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“LAST CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL – NO MORE LIGHT.”
