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.”

Daily Wire investigation: Italian company may have illegally sold rights to the Vatican’s priceless art
The Daily Wire has been conducting a fascinating investigation into the Vatican Museum’s priceless artwork. “Rights to the Vatican Museums’ priceless trove of art treasures may have been illegally sold without the Holy See’s approval in what one attorney described as a “high-tech heist,” the investigation finds.
An Italian company is allegedly selling the rights to reproduce the Vatican artwork in six-figure deals, while claiming to be working in “collaboration with” the Vatican Museums.
“This scheme is nothing less than a pre-meditated, high-tech heist of world-class treasured art from the Vatican Museums under the disguise of bogus licenses, as if sanctioned by the Vatican,” Sarah Rose Speno, a New York attorney, told The Daily Wire.
The Daily Wire’s report notes that Speno said she stumbled upon the alleged scheme in March when she sought permission to use images of Vatican art for an exhibition by a client.
“We discovered that a large table book had been published with high-resolution images of the interiors of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel,” Speno said. “We very much wanted to pursue an opportunity to license these images, as soon as possible.”
Speno contacted Scripta Maneant — the Italian publisher that licensed the photos in the book. Scripta Maneant claimed authority to broker the publishing rights via its “collaboration” with Vatican Museums vice director, Monsignore Paolo Nicolini. Scripta Maneant wanted $550,000 for the rights — with a portion being paid to the Vatican through Nicolini, according to Speno. Although Scripta Maneant claimed the fee would be shared with the Vatican, Speno said she later became suspicious.
“The Scripta Maneant scheme became obvious when the Scripta principals demanded a cash wire in the amount of $82,500 no later than their return from summer holiday in late August,” Speno said. “They said that they would produce Vatican approval for our Italian Renaissance Immersive project ‘if and only if’ the fee were wired to the Scripta bank account they provided. It was at this point that grave suspicion entered my mind.”
Ultimately, Speno said, “we terminated the deal when Scripta could not provide us with documented consent by the Vatican.”
