One mask, two masks, and mandates. Over the last two years the federal government has failed to acknowledge a particularly important fact: the states have the ultimate power.
While the Senate has come together to repeal the president's COVID-19 mandate with a passing vote of 52 to 48, the executive branch of government has tried to continue to find ways to get around the votes of the Senate. Jen Psaki the White House Press Secretary stated that the White House would veto the bill by the Senate to stop vaccine mandates.
Fauci + NIAID
Fauci is the 2nd highest-paid unelected government employee. He has been the director of the NIAID since 1984 (almost 4 decades). Fauci has gone back and forth on the science of masks. This is not the first time Fauci has been back and forth on how communicable diseases spread and what preventative measures work. We have attached a video interview below of Fauci explaining during the AIDS epidemic how AIDS can be transmitted through close contact. Fauci has also been overseeing NIAID which has been responsible for spending millions on animal studies which at best are questionable. Some studies included research on finding animal vaccines. One of these studies at the University of Georgia infested dogs with flies carrying a parasitic disease. The dogs were observed for days until the dogs were in visible vocalized pain at which point they were euthanized. The vaccines and medication were never proven to be successful. While Fauci was with NIAID, studies were reportedly funded in Tunisia on animals. One of the studies drugged dogs and locked their heads in mesh cages with skin-eating sand flies. NIAID claims they did not fund this particular study in Tunisia. However, groups like PETA claim they have caught the NIAID lying about studies in the past. This particular study is up for debate (you can read the rebuttal from NIAID here). It is doubtful a study funded by the NIAID like this would ever be publically acknowledged (here's a quick example of a previously documented cover-up). However, it is not up for debate that even according to PolitiFact fact checkers multiple NIAID studies costing millions while Fauci has been director were made on animals ending in the pain and euthanization of animals.

Government Mask Regulations
One example of the government changing science is masks. Whether they change it because they realize they didn't know the correct science before or because it's based on what suits their wants is up for you to decide. It makes it difficult to know what actually works, what's an attempt to comfort citizens while they actually find answers, and what is political theater. We have gone from no masks, to masks, to no masks, to double masks. Originally Fauci said masks do not work, but should be reserved for healthcare workers. Months later Fauci stated, "If, in fact, you are vaccinated, fully vaccinated, you are protected, and you do not need to wear a mask outdoors or indoors." And then the story became "When you're vaccinated, it would be prudent to wear a mask." And then we all remember the day we discovered we should wear, "One mask at least, but if you want to really be sure, get a tighter fit with a 2nd mask." But do masks really work?
