Sen. Rand Paul excoriates HHS Sec. Becerra for ignoring science, calling anti-COVID vaccine citizens ‘flat earthers’

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a medical doctor, interrogated HHS secretary Xavier Becerra this week at a Senate Health Committee hearing and berated him for calling Americans who refuse to get vaccinated “flat earthers.” The senator pointed out millions of citizens have recovered from COVID and have natural immunity, including NBA start Jonathan Isaac, and denounced Becerra for his lack of knowledge and scientific credentials.

Among other things Sen. Paul said:

You’re not a medical doctor. Do you have science degree? And yet you travel the country calling people who have had COVID, who have looked at studies of millions of people, and made their own personal decision that their immunity that they naturally acquired is sufficient.

But you presume, somehow, to tell over a hundred million Americans who have survived COVID that we have no right to determine our own medical care, that you alone are on high, and you’ve made these decisions — a lawyer with no scientific background, no medical degree[.] … [T]his is an arrogance, coupled with an authoritarianism, that is unseemly.

Paul added: “Dozens and dozens [of studies] show robust, long-lasting immunity after COVID infection. Even the CDC does not recommend measles vaccine if you have measles immunity. The same was true for small pox. But you ignore history and science to shame the ‘flat-earthers’ as you call them. You should be ashamed of yourself and apologize to the American people for being dishonest about naturally acquired immunity.”

  1. Why is it just those with natural immunity that Rand Paul defends? There seems to be no elected officials brave enough to talk about the VAERS reporting. These worthless vaccines were illegally rushed through and are cruel experiments on the human race. Call me crazy, but that’s why I’m not getting one.

  2. I’d vote for Rand Paul for president – if I KNEW the CCP was OUT of our elections (THAT won’t happen unless we wake up to the domination of our elections electronically by same).
    But that won’t happen because our country has been given away to the CCP of China (thank sooooo much Pat, Bernie and Pete).
    Vermont leading the way – the model of the future US states.
    An honest politician who also happens to BE a doctor…oooooo…suspicious!

  3. Maybe we should give these gentleman a choice when facing death?

    Ventilator or Ivermectin?

    Who’s flat earth now?

    700k deaths in America – ventilator
    Eradication of Clovid in India – Ivermectin+

  4. Old, sharp as a tack Joe sure knows how to pick ’em. He’s got Bernie as chairman of the congressional budget committee, a guy who is an avowed socialist who never had a job until he won mayor of Burlington by 10 votes at 40 years old. He never ran a company, met a payroll or produced anything except hot air, still. Now that’s a guy you want directing taxpayer money, right?

    This guy Bacerra, a cabinet level Health and Human Services Secretary is a political hack. He was a congressman from California and then elected Attorney General in California and as a payback Joe makes him the head of HHS even though he’s not a doctor or scientist. The only thing Becerra is good for is being a loyal political hack and an ardent anti-2nd amendment attack dog. Of course Joe loves him.

    The whole administration is comprised of the same ole Obama, Clinton crowd that plays musical chairs for appointments so they can continue to ruin America and fleece the system to become millionaires. Ever wonder way with all the money floating around in this country is it that you get so little of it? This is only one example why, incompetent, corruption and appointing political hacks for their loyalty to the DC swamp club. And you ain’t a member.

    • Yes Dano the Obidung regime picks their appointee’s on their gender
      pronouns and color instead of knowledge/skill of Dept they will be heading..
      Same at the CDC where the ijit and thief put in a professor who overrules the
      advise of the scientist at CDC to approve a unsafe booster for the crud flu.. kerry the multi millionaire many mansion owner is climate whiner another winner.. it’s as if the cabal is putting in the worst person they can find to bring down the republic as fast as they can…
