Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) on Thursday put forward a pair of bills that would lower Dr. Anthony Fauci‘s salary to 0$ and outlaw vaccine passports, though neither having a serious chance of passing.

In a Thursday press release, the controversial congresswoman slammed Fauci—the nation’s top infectious disease official—and proposed the “Fire Fauci Act”. The bill would cut Fauci’s salary down to $0 “until a new NIAID [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] Administrator is confirmed by the Senate” and launch an investigation to find out “what Fauci and the NIAID knew, when they knew it, what they spent money on and how the agency responded to the virus.”

However, the NIAID director’s appointment is not subject to Senate confirmation, as Politico‘s Andrew Desiderio and others pointed out. Even if the bill is passed, it is unclear if such a pay cut could be authorized, according to The Hill.

The second proposed bill, the “We Will Not Comply Act,” would “ban” vaccine passports—documents that verify one’s COVID-19 vaccination status—by prohibiting businesses engaging in interstate commerce from “discriminating against a person based on their COVID-19 vaccine status”. Among other proposals, it would also allow people to sue businesses with such a requirement.

Neither of Greene’s bills, however, are expected to pass—with Democrats in control of the House.

Like Greene, other Republican lawmakers have blasted Fauci for what they see as missteps during the pandemic’s early stages, as well as for claims of inconsistency and political bias.

As for vaccine passports, many GOP governors have slammed the concept—with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, for example, pushing for his state to ban any requirement for such passports.

BLM Co-Founder Admits Group Funded with ‘White Guilt Money’

In an MSNBC podcast interview, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors used the vile statement that her organization is financed with “White guilt money.” Cullors was answering host Trymaine Lee’s question about the “tsunami of flooding” of cash flow and if they had proper ways to ensure its cash was “being directed in proper ways.”

Speaking on the “Into America” podcast, she said of the money “yes, it was a major shock…it was also a lot of like, ‘oh, wait, I did not see that coming.’ You know, contrary to what, you know, has been reported, much of the funding that came in was from individual donors.”

She then elaborated that those individual donors were specifically, “a lot of White guilt money.” She did not, however, address whether or not “guardrails” were in place to spend the millions of dollars it has raised.

Fox News reports “the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, its primary nonprofit, collected $90 million throughout 2020, a financial snapshot released by the group in early 2021 showed.”

“Cullors stepped away from the BLM Global Network Foundation in May 2021 amid scrutiny over her $3.2 million real-estate buying binge, which included the BLM leader scooping up four homes. Cullors also allegedly eyed property in the Bahamas at a posh resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods own homes.”

Recently Cullors was exposed by New York Magazine which exposed that BLM Global Network Foundation purchased a $6 million Los Angeles mansion, at which Cullors held personal parties such as a birthday for her son and an election party after Biden’s win.
