This Supreme Court Justice had a jaw-dropping message that could end Dr. Fauci’s career
The coronavirus pandemic has seen Governors close businesses, mandate masks, and rule by executive decree.
Dr. Fauci and other so-called “experts” have been pushing these controversial moves.
And this Supreme Court Justice had a jaw-dropping message that could end Dr. Fauci’s career.
In a speech to the Federalist Society, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito blasted the lockdown orders, mask mandates, and curfews imposed by Governors as rule by executive fiat.
Alito made sure to say he wasn’t commenting on the legality or wisdom of the policy since some of these cases may wind up before the Supreme Court, but Alito’s main gripe was that elected officials abandoned the fundamental principle of governing through legislation instead of executive decree.
“One of these is the dominance of lawmaking by executive fiat, rather than legislation. The vision of early-20th century progressives and the New Dealers of the 1930s was that policymaking would shift from narrow-minded elected legislators to an elite group of appointed experts. In a word, that policymaking would become more scientific. That dream has been realized to a large extent. Every year, administrative agencies, acting under broad delegations of authority, churn out huge volumes of regulations that dwarf the statutes enacted by the people’s elected representatives. And what have we seen in the pandemic? Sweeping restrictions imposed, for the most part, under statutes that confer enormous executive discretion,” Alito stated.
Alito argued that by end-running around the legislature, Governors during the coronavirus “highlighted the movement toward rule by experts.”
No one typifies the unaccountable, unelected bureaucrat making decisions for millions who never consented to put that person in charge more than Dr. Fauci.
As a civil servant, Dr. Fauci is not elected by anyone nor is he appointed by the President so he cannot easily be removed from office.
And yet Dr. Fauci has been guiding the nation’s coronavirus response through his support of disastrous lockdowns and tyrannical mask mandates.
Justice Samuel Alito is saying it’s time for the age of Fauci and his fellow “experts” to end and for elected officials to work together on legislation to address the virus so the public can judge their performance and hold them accountable.
