Fauci Announces He’s Stepping Down, Speculation About the Timing Erupts

From westernjournal.com

Roughly a month after he first announced that he would leave the federal government, Dr. Anthony Fauci made it official Monday.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as well as the chief medical advisor to the president, announced his intentions in a statement posted Monday on the NIAID website.

“I am announcing today that I will be stepping down from the positions of Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, as well as the position of Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden. I will be leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career,” Fauci said in the statement.

“I am very proud of our many accomplishments,” Fauci, whose leadership of the efforts to fight COVID-19 has come under intense criticism, said in the statement.

Fauci, 81, said he will remain active.

“While I am moving on from my current positions, I am not retiring. After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field. I want to use what I have learned as NIAID Director to continue to advance science and public health and to inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to face future infectious disease threats,” he said.

In July, Fauci broached the subject of leaving the federal government in an interview with Politico.

“I don’t think there is anything else that I, Tony Fauci, can do except leave behind an institution where I have picked the best people in the country, if not the world, who will continue my vision,” he said.

“We’re in a pattern now. If somebody says, ‘You’ll leave when we don’t have Covid anymore,’ then I will be 105. I think we’re going to be living with this,” he said then.

In that interview, Fauci said if he stayed, he expected a contentious year if Republicans, with whom he has sparred, gain a majority in either house of Congress.

“They’re going to try and come after me, anyway. I mean, probably less so if I’m not in the job,” he said. “I don’t make that a consideration in my career decision.”

But on Monday, many commented that Fauci was doing exactly that.

A few days after the interview saying he would leave, Fauci added a definite maybe to his plans, according to The Hill.

“What happens between now and then I have not decided, but the one thing I do know is that I have other things that I want to do in a professional way that I want to have the capability — while I still have the energy and the passion to do them,” Fauci said.

In an interview this month with Dr. Larry Corey, president and former director of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Institute in Seattle, Fauci described himself as the personification of science.

“What I symbolize in an era of the normalization of untruths and lies and all the things you’re seeing going on in society from Jan. 6 to everything else that goes on, people are craving for consistency, for integrity, for truth, and for people caring about people,” Fauci said. SOURCE

I have followed Fauci since 2020. If you are interested, please look up the articles I have written about him, and the many lies he has been caught in.



“…blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”  Jeremiah 17:7-8

          Nobody likes fresh, home-grown tomatoes any better than me. I can eat ‘em

morning, noon and night. For the last few years I have tried to grow some in my backyard. My gardening friends assured me I could and told me how to do it. Every year, so far, something has gone awry. The wrong soil, where I had them located, the plant variety, when I planted and on and on. Well this year I was all set: planted when I was supposed to, the best mixture of soil, the best plants, location, not too much water but just enough. You know the rest of the story: the heat zapped them. The heat didn’t just fry mine but just about everyone that I know. I’ve had a back-up plan with a lady in the country who really has great tomatoes but even she is without fruit this year. The heat is a killer.

          There is one thing the Lord looks for and expects from His people and it is fruit. In the Old Testament God lays this out plain for His chosen people. Through the song of Isaiah, God compares the calling out of His chosen people to a man planting a vineyard. God chose fertile land; it was tilled and cleared of rocks. He planted it with the choicest of vines and he built a winepress in preparation for a good harvest. When harvest time arrived, God was expecting good fruit(obedience, faith, love, thanksgiving, worship and service) but instead found foul-smelling wild grapes(disobedience, rebellion and idolatry). Isaiah 5 In the New Testament Jesus presented this same picture to the unbelieving Jews. And then He presents the truth of how God will have the fruit He desires.

Jesus said: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful…I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  John 15:1-7

Jesus also said that whoever would come after Him, let him take up his cross daily and follow Him. I believe our cross is the daily labor of putting the old man and his works to death. The world, the flesh, and the devil work daily to excite and incite the passions of the flesh. I believe that Satan uses whatever tricks and devices he can to put the heat on God’s children, to dry us up spiritually, to render us fruitless.

Christian people are called to walk in newness of life, to put on the new man who has been created in the image of Christ. Remaining faithful in prayer will keep us spiritually fertile whereby the Holy Ghost can continually feed and water us with the faith, hope and love of Jesus Christ. And not only will the heat not dry us up but we will bear fruit that will remain: “Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”  1 Corinthians 15:58
