In the ever-changing mind of top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, three feet of distance may now be enough between individuals.

In a Sunday CNN interview, Fauci was asked by host Jake Tapper if a new study that found “no significant difference” in schools which had six feet of distance and three feet of distance” suggests that three feet may be enough, Fauci answered, “It does indeed.”

“Does this study suggest to you that three feet is good enough?” Tapper asked.

“It does indeed, and that’s exactly the point I’m making,” Fauci answered.

Tapper noted that the six feet requirement is one of the “major hurdles” schools are facing to reopen. He asked Fauci if schools are correct to open up with three feet of distance now to which Fauci gave a non-answer.

“I don’t want to get ahead of official guidelines. I can tell you and promise you that I talk to the CDC…every single day,” the doctor said.

Fauci told the audience to “stay tuned” on new guidelines. At that point, Tapper laughed and said, “Well we are staying tuned, for a lot of us, that want schools to open safely.”

There is no word on if, or when, this will become an official mandate or guideline from the CDC.

The news comes as Rand Paul called out Fauci for telling “noble lies” to the public on Laura Ingraham’s show Friday.

“But you have to remember that his lies are noble lies, Laura. He’s not telling you this because he’s a mean man,” the senator said. “He’s telling you this because he feels sorry for you because you don’t understand, and Americans aren’t smart enough to make informed decisions. So, he fashions himself some sort of Greek philosopher. He tells you these noble lies.”

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts




After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
