Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney came to the defense of White House Wuhan virus task force member Anthony Fauci on May 12 and congratulated him for his work throughout the pandemic.
“Dr. Fauci is one of the finest public servants we have ever had. He is not a partisan,” the congresswoman tweeted. “His only interest is saving lives. We need his expertise and his judgment to defeat this virus. All Americans should be thanking him. Every day.”

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been at the center of the U.S. government’s response to the Wuhan virus. Fauci’s advice regarding the virus and the government’s actions to tackle the pandemic has, at times, conflicted with President Trump’s statements.
On May 12, Fauci and three other members of the task force appeared at a virtual hearing in front of the Senate Health Committee to talk about the country’s response to the virus which has claimed over 80,000 lives in America.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took Fauci to task during his speech at the hearing, telling Fauci that he respected him but that he didn’t believe he was the “end all” when dealing with the virus.
“So I think we ought to have a little bit of humility in our belief that we know what’s best for the economy,” Paul stated. “I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make a decision. We can listen to your advice, but there are people on the other side saying there’s not going to be a surge and that we can safely open the economy and the facts will bear this out.”
Fauci responded to the Kentucky senator, stating he had “never made myself out to be the end all and only voice in this.”
“I’m a scientist, a physician and a public health official. I give advice according to the best scientific evidence,” Fauci remarked.
At the same hearing, Fauci advised against the U.S. reopening its economy in a quick manner.
“There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak,” Fauci highlighted. He noted that states that reopen their economies too quickly may have problems with containing new outbreaks, thus prolonging the recovery time.
A number of states have started to reopen parts of their economies recently, as more and more citizens growing anxious about the lockdowns and the economy continues to sputter.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
