Rosalynn Carter recovering from surgery in Atlanta

Published

Former first lady Rosalynn Carter is recovering from surgery at Emory University Hospital.

Carter, 90, had surgery on Sunday to remove scar tissue from a portion of her small intestine, The Carter Center said in a statement. The surgery was successful. The scar tissue, the statement said, developed after a cyst was removed many years ago.

Carter is expected to remain hospitalized for several days, where she will rest and recover, the statement said.

The former first lady married President Jimmy Carter on July 7, 1946, in Plains, Georgia, and emerged as a driving force for mental health during his presidential administration.

JIMMY CARTER: MEDIA TOUGHER ON TRUMP THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENT IN MEMORY

She became honorary chair of the President’s Commission on Mental Health, which resulted in passage of the Mental Health Systems Act of 1980, and has worked on mental health, human rights and other issues through her work at The Carter Center, the private, nonprofit institution the Carters founded in 1982.

Rosalynn Carter is often seen at Maranatha Baptist Church, President Carter’s hometown church, where the former president teaches Sunday school. The Carter Center in January said the former president planned to limit his duties at the church, but planned to continue to attend and greet visitors with the former first lady.

Fauci staffer to retire after report he trashed ‘mask nazi’ Fauci and coronavirus ‘fraud’ online

Published

on

A public relations staffer for the agency run by Dr. Anthony Fauci announced his “intention to retire” Monday, the department said, after the Daily Beast reported that he was the author of numerous articles trashing Fauci and dismissing the coronavirus pandemic as a “massive fraud.”

The man, William B. Crews, a public affairs specialist for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or NIAID, was identified by the Daily Beast as moonlighting as managing editor of the conservative website RedState, where he wrote articles under the pseudonym “streiff.” The articles are filled with misinformation, directly contradicting the agency’s recommendations about the virus and calling Fauci a “mask nazi,” among other insults.

A spokeswoman for NIAID, Kathy Stover, said in a statement that the agency “first learned of this matter this morning, and Mr. Crews has informed us of his intention to retire. We have no further comments on this as it is a personnel matter.”

An email to “streiff” for comment was not immediately returned.

According to his LinkedIn account, Crews has worked for NIAID since 2007. The Daily Beast said his posts have become more and more conspiratorial as the pandemic, which has killed over 200,000 people in the U.S., has dragged on.

“When Covid-19 Kills 18,000 People Call Me, But Until Then Stop the Scaremongering,” read the headline of one March RedState article.

In another RedState post cited by the Daily Beast, he wrote in June, “I think we’re at the point where it is safe to say that the entire Wuhan virus scare was nothing more or less than a massive fraud perpetrated upon the American people by ‘experts’ who were determined to fundamentally change the way the country lives and is organized and governed.”

Last week, the top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, Michael Caputo, announced that he was taking a medical leave shortly after he promoted dangerous conspiracy theories in a Facebook Live video.

Caputo charged that scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “don’t want America to get well” and were plotting “how they’re going to attack Donald Trump.” He urged Trump supporters to load up on ammunition in preparation for a violent left-wing rebellion if the president wins re-election.
