Rise and Fall of Fauci Illustrates Death of ‘Expertise'

 
 
August 24 2022
 

Good morning from Washington, where not everyone will be sorry to see Tony Fauci go. Pols allowed Fauci to dictate to Americans because of his supposed expertise, Jarrett Stepman writes. Why aren't civil rights groups questioning the barring of black students from D.C. schools? Doug Blair reports. On the podcast, a Texas congressman details how the open southern border helps drug smugglers kill us. Plus: the status of Russia's war against Ukraine after six months; and a border mayor feels for D.C. and the Big Apple. Ten years ago today, a 33-year-old extremist who killed 77 in bombing and shooting attacks 11 months earlier in and near Oslo, Norway, is sentenced to 21 years in prison, the maximum allowed.
