Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul took another shot Wednesday at Dr. Anthony Fauci's insistence that vaccinated people should continue to wear masks before suggesting that President Joe Biden "burn" his in order to promote coronavirus vaccines.
"You might get run over by a car, you might get hit by a meteor," Paul told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum during a Wednesday afternoon "The Story" appearance. "The science is about proving that things are happening. If Dr. Fauci can prove that people who are vaccinated are spreading the disease, I will listen to him. If he can prove that people like me who have already had it are spreading the disease, I'll listen to him. But there is no evidence of that."
“If you want more people to get vaccinated, Joe Biden should go on national TV, take his mask off, and burn it," he continued. "Light a torch to it and burn his mask and say, 'I’ve had the vaccine, I am now safe from this plague. If you'll get the vaccine, you can be safe too.'"
Calling the current establishment position "fear-mongering," Paul insisted the "burden of proof should be on the government to prove we are spreading it."
The libertarian-leaning Kentucky senator, who has famously crossed swords with Fauci before on the absurdity of post-vaccine masking, went on to discuss the thousands who have gotten infected after being vaccinated, a number that sounds scary unless you put it in context with the tens of millions who have been vaccinated against the virus.
In data released Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that at least 5,800 people had fallen ill or tested positive for the coronavirus two weeks or more after they completed both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.
A total of about 78 million Americans are now fully vaccinated.
These so-called breakthrough infections occurred among people of all ages. Just over 40% were in people age 60 or older, and 65% occurred in women. Twenty-nine percent of infected people reported no symptoms, but 7% were hospitalized and just over 1%, 74 people, died, according to the CDC.
Public health officials have said breakthrough infections were expected, since manufacturers have warned loudly and often that the vaccines are not 100% protective. The Pfizer and Moderna versions have consistently been shown to be above 90% effective, most recently for at least six months. Studies have also shown they are nearly 100% effective at ensuring that the small fraction of vaccinated patients who do contract the virus will not get severe cases or require hospitalization.
Given those odds, highlighting those fairly minuscule risks in order to maintain costly and ineffective measures like forced masking and lockdowns at the expense of public confidence in vaccines and a return to normal life seems absurd to many, and yet Fauci and our other medical overlords seem to have an almost cult-like devotion to it.
Biden, of course, a man who wears fourteen masks even while outside dozens of feet away from a single soul, isn't about to give up his safety blanket anytime soon either, reminding Americans yet again to continue to "mask up."
"We're all in this TOGETHER"
Of course. What confidence does one show in the vaccine after being vaccinated but still wearing a mask?
But...now they are willing to pay people to get the vaccine and still recommend wearing a mask?
Something doesn’t add up.
No wonder conspiracy theories start.
Rand is right on!
Flush the feces
“On Monday, CDC director Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky made a comment in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that caused a stir of controversy in the scientific community.
“Our data from the CDC today suggests, you know, that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don`t get sick, and that it`s not just in the clinical trials but it`s also in real-world data,” Walensky said, creating the assumption that transmission from a vaccinated person was impossible. “
And yet today they are blaming unvaccinated people for vaccinated people getting sick. How is that possible when they say real world data says vaccinated people do not get sick with it?
It blows that claim out of the water, and it should also make you extremely skeptical that they can’t transmit it once they are sick.
Eff the vaccines....
There is a radio message where a native American wamen is talking about how great it is she will be taking the vaccine... and I was like, oh jesus, suddenly the government is the best friend to the Indian.... Maybe they should hand out a blanket with every shot they give to a native American.
And give every Mexican a case of Coronas?
I saw a video clip of Jim Jordan questioning Fauci about why Texas was doing better without masks than the blue states up north that require masks. His response was that Texans follow the rules better than people up north. LOL..
...show the ERD(Vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease)-risk of FI-RSV (enhanced respiratory disease, or VAERD) through priming...It appears to me that those acronyms got swapped. Wouldn't ERD be "enhanced respiratory disease", and VAERD be "vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease"?
The last time they did that, they also gave them smallpox and nearly eradicated the native population.
Dr. Paul is still under the impression that Biden (or any Democrat) is interested in using science for something other than a means to leverage their political agenda.
Some of which they know of are:
1. Lowered immunity against variation of the virus
2. Vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease. Every vaccine in the past that had this was pulled and the companies license pulled. example: Chiron SARS vaccine of 2004
3. pro-inflammatory which is the worst thing against covid
4. humoral immune responses
5. disrupting sleep cycles
In vitro model for the assessment of human immune responses to subunit RSV vaccines
Nothing these tyrants say makes scientific sense.
They are holding us all hostage.
Time to REVOLT.
Do you want to go through another hot summer wearing a mask?
If everyone refuses, what can they do?
As one who has had 69 years of respiratory problems, stemming from asthma, allergies, and chronic bronchitis as a teenager and young adult, I'm particularly concerned about the vaccines' potential for making my conditions worse. (I also have hypertension and peripheral neuropathy but those don't seem to be major contraindications for the vaccine.)
"Vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease" sounds like exactly the kind of thing I very much do NOT want to run into.
