Video: Rand Paul spars with Fauci over wearing masks after vaccination

In a U.S. Senate hearing Thursday, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, debated if Americans need to wear masks after they have either been vaccinated or have natural immunity following a COVID infection.

“You’re telling everybody to wear a mask whether they have had an infection or a vaccine. What I’m saying is they have immunity, and everybody agrees they have immunity,” Paul said. “What studies do you have that people that have had the vaccine or have had the infection are spreading the infection? If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater? You’ve had the vaccine, and you’re wearing two masks. Isn’t that theater?”

  1. Disaster rehearsals on how to report the Covid “emergency” began in 2019 – so connecting this piece of evidence which directly corresponds to the “Great Reset” brainchilded by the Davos World Economic Forum is considered none other than a – wait for it – “conspiracy theory” – really, really?!

    Is there any doubt that National Review is a conservative bunch of conservatives? These folks are not easy to typify as ‘wild-eyed’ or fit the lazy and oh-so tiresome “conspiracy theorists” imho. They were an early smackdown of this reality.
    A Useful Pandemic: Davos Launches New ‘Reset,’ this Time on the Back of COVID
    By Andrew Stuttaford October 29, 2020 6:30 AM
    — Why it is capitalism that has to be reset is unclear.
    “COVID-19 is a bad disease that has been used to breathe new life into bad ideas. And so it comes as no surprise that the World Economic Forum (“Davos”) is deploying the pandemic as an argument for what it labels, with characteristic modesty, “The Great Reset” initiative:

    • Johns Hopkins and Gates Foundation Hosted Coronavirus Pandemic Simulation Last October
      By Brock Simmons Published March 14, 2020 at 7:06pm 461 Comments
      “Just a few months before the Covid-19 outbreak, an exercise was held by world elites called Event 201, where they simulated a global pandemic of a coronavirus that transmitted from bats to humans. Taking place in October, the event was hosted by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, Bloomberg School Of Public Health, World Economic Forum, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The simulation analyzed the health impacts, as well as the economic, lifestyle, and trade fallout from the virus.”

      from above – WEF is Davos and are listed as a partner on Johns Hopkins website as is the B&MG Foundation who have donated @ least $60 million to Johns Hopkins – eugenisist-champion and globalist Gates the elder was also a longtime donor.

      • Event 201 is the nontroversy – tho haven’t waded thru all of the videos bc it’s not the real one but seems to be a counterfeit version to replace CladeX:

        Approximately one year before first sighting of Covid appeared – believed to have been going strong in Wuhan China as early as late summer-early fall of 2019 – this video reenactment was the war-gamed dress rehearsal imo:
        The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted the Clade X pandemic tabletop exercise on May 15, 2018, in Washington, DC. The purpose of the exercise was to illustrate high-level strategic decisions and policies that the United States and the world will need to pursue in order to prevent a pandemic or diminish its consequences should prevention fail.

          Respectfully request no more glib claims of “conspiracy theory” – openly debate on merits or kindly admit you have none.

          Following NYTimes revelation of the world elites coming out of the closet, brazenly declaring had to steal the election to save the planet. Translation: Had to get rid of DJT to save the special interests of the global elites Bilderbergers, Davos etc etc connected to UN globalist elites and pet projects to destroy the lives of those who are not them – this means you DemocratMarxist Party sellouts – may I suggest you and ilk study the works of William Shakespeare lol.

          Can safely bet a*ses will dump the Democrats as well as conservatives into their grave – unfortunately too busy stupidly planning how they will spend the 30 pieces of silver earned betraying fellow citizens to see the sword they love so much raised above their heads. And when – not if it happens our leftist friends will have a mirror-gaze of pure unadulterated evil.

    • Correction: Confused Event 219 with CladeX – the real set of disaster rehearsals from 2018 and eerily similar to Covid response of a year ago.

    • Those who take the time to read the Breggin report might note that the alleged purpose of gain-of-function research, according to NPR, is to prevent pandemics such as Covid-19 (page 22.)

      That didn’t work out too well.

    • A 2013 paper, co-authored by Xing-Yi Ge, virologist at the Wuhan Institute, titled “Isolation and characterization of a bat SARS-like coronavirus that uses the ACE2 receptor.”

      This paper “studied the capacity of the coronavirus to be engineered into a pathogen that could be made to connect to the ACE2 human receptor.” Alert readers will remember that Sars-CoV-2 uniquely binds to the ACE2 receptor. Peter Daszak, head of the Ecohealth Alliance which has received several grants from Fauci, is also listed as an author of this paper. (Daszak has also received funding from the CDC and the Gates Foundation.) Isn’t it coincidental that a pandemic emerged from a virus that a unique ability to bind to the ACE2 receptor, and that we know that this connection had been accomplished in a lab, using coronavirus, around 2013?

      On April 27, 2020, Newsweek reported that “In 2019, with the backing of NIAID [Fauci’s agency], the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7 million over six years for research that included some gain-of-function work. The program followed another $3.7 million, 5-year project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4 million.” Breggin Report, page 27

      “It is telling that Fauci was so key to enabling the Chinese to make SARS-CoV-2 and then
      became the international management czar for the worldwide affliction that he helped to create—
      and now he wants to lead us down the road of worldwide public health totalitarianism to save us
      from ‘human-made’ environmental destruction that allegedly encourages the emergence of
      pathogens from nature.” That is to say, Fauci is blaming the emergence of Covid-19 on human disturbances to the environment, implying that we need to be controlled, and he fails completely to acknowledge the known dangers of the GOF research he himself was funding.

      I’ll leave it at that.

  2. Completely missing from the entire story is the false argument of whether or not it was a bioweapon engineered to destroy world economy while leaving China virtually unscathed by proportion. Or whether it is a fugitive strain that ‘accidentally’ escaped from a bioweapon lab.

    Real story is what was China doing with a bioweapon lab *at all* as it goes against international law.
    Chinese Dr, researcher and whistleblower fled to US following claims Covid is actually a bioweapon:
    Dr. Li Meng Yan: Covid-19 is an ‘Unrestricted’ Bioweapon
    March 6, 2021
    by Elizabeth
    “This artificial covid-19 virus is a bioweapon, unrestricted, which is beyond the traditional concept to make more damage,” Dr. Yan told War Room. “It’s also for long-term damage, economic…and social destruction.”

    • Occam’s razor.

      They all know what happened. They’re all in on it. That’s why there isn’t as much finger pointing as one would expect, as there would be if there was intent by some to harm others. Why else would Fauci insist on mask wearing after vaccination of herd immunity? Listen to his testimony and read the reports on ‘gain of function’ research (I didn’t make this up), it’s the only explanation as to why Fauci is still there, and why the U.S. hasn’t gone after China, that makes any sense.

      They screwed up. So, what else is new? The question is, now what do we do?

      • Respectfully disagree and Occam’s is a double edged razor. Find “conspiracy theorist” label offensive. This is the unending gaslighting the democrats and other leftists sling @ conservatives. I find their own trashtalk none other the real conspiracy theory and presents as bitter, hateful and paranoid.

        Sad to see conservatives using this method of attack even if they do not necessarily share the same descriptors.

        Not a fan of attempting to big-tent foolishness however perhaps many factors dwell side by side.

        No I do not think Fauci is the expert he claims to be. He was caught early on claiming the masks were symbolic when faced with evidence that they do not work. And red-handed not wearing a mask or social distancing. Birx and pants on fire lies also caight violating rules. They’re not alone. What are they telling us? That its a giant load of Horse**it. It’s to subjugate us and just as plantation owners masked their slaves for talking that’s what this is about. Keeping us apart and from discussing the insanity or anything really. Because politicians and other elitists biggest fear is We The People.

        The variants will ever be with us – just as any coronavirus or flu. Do we wear masks for flu? No. A “vaccine” which this is not – its an MRNA genetic experiment that just as seasonal flu cannot or will not stop the illness or its the contagion.

        It is marking the test subjects that is the public for death. All the cats nad ferrets what ever animals that were tested died! People are having reactions that send them to ER. Last death count over a week ago was nearly 1700 – and rises daily. And, those not counted as vaccine-related are those mysteriously dying after receiving the shot from ‘natural causes’.

  3. This entire fiasco is unraveling, and, it seems to me, is likely to turn out to be more insidious than we ‘little people’ have ever imagined.

    Dr. Fauci appears to have found himself in a classic CYA scenario. And it’s all about ‘Gain of Function’ virus research.

    What Fauci said in this hearing is that because influenza viruses mutate into so-called ‘variant strains’, masks will add an amount of protection (a level conveniently undefined as yet) for those strains that have mutated, or are soon to mutate.

    Now consider that influenza viruses have been mutating for time immemorial. But here’s the deal – the influenza virus research with which Fauci was involved years ago, the so-called ‘Gain of Function’ research that was deemed to be ‘too dangerous to continue’ in the U.S. under the Obama administration, was quietly renewed in 2017 with some projects transferred to, you guessed it, Wuhan, China. Allegedly with funding directed by Fauci. Fact checkers dance around this issue describing these claims as ‘conspiracy theory’, and with sophistry like “Although the NIH did fund a project at the Wuhan lab, there’s no proof that the coronavirus was bioengineered.”

    Well, ‘no proof’ isn’t ‘proof’.

    What is ‘Gain of Function’ virus research?

    Biologists are trying to make bird flu easier to spread. Can we not?
    This research into viruses could help us understand pandemics better – or it could cause one.

    ”Now, thanks to the US government, two lab experiments trying to find ways to make it more dangerous will resume their work after years on hold.”

    OK. Now, I’m speculating.

    Under the auspices of trying to learn more about these viruses, like Ebola, for example, ‘Gain of Function’ mutations were intended to create laboratory controlled experiments to better facilitate vaccine production for future outbreaks of various mutating viruses…. or so their logic goes.

    But it occurs to me that these Frankenstein wannabes may have been more successful than initially intended – and that one of these engineered ‘function-gaining’ flu strains got loose in the form of Covid-19. And what we’ve been hearing about recently (in this hearing in particular) is that the so-called ‘variants’ that are showing up in the UK, in South Africa, and in Brazil, may be precursors of more to come.

    Is it any wonder the so-called ‘Warp Speed’ program was initiated? We have every major pharmaceutical company in the world putting everything they have into these vaccines. We have Dr. (‘it’s alive’) Fauci, pleading with us to wear masks, even after we’ve been vaccinated or have developed immunity to this Covid-19 strain.

    Forewarned is forearmed folks. It’s time to stop with the suspicion that Covid-19 was a ‘Great Reset’ ploy to get rid of Donald Trump and put the UN in charge. It’s time to demand that the man behind the curtain, Dr. Fauci, level with us once and for all – even if the truth will hurt – as, it seems to me, it likely will.

    • Even though we’ve been jetting around the globe for the past 70 years or so and had the potential to spread any number of germs, we’ve essentially only been attacked by flu viruses until this “novel” virus came out, which many scientists argue has the markings of being lab-created. Now we’re being told that this won’t be the last pandemic, that we need to prepare for recurring pandemics. Why? What has changed? What has changed is our ability to manufacture deadly pathogens in the lab.

      Yes, Fauci did fund the Wuhan lab. I’ve seen the grant documents. This funding was channeled through the Ecohealth Alliance run by Peter Daszak who, coincidentally, is part of the WHO team to determine if Covid-19 was of lab origin. What happens to Daszak’s research if they find that it was? What happens to GOF research around the world if they find that it was? I predict they won’t.

      We should take seriously the idea that Covid-19 may be a lab product, and we should take seriously the possibility that there might be a plan, now or even in the remote future, to use bioweapons against the population in order to control them and herd them through fear, or simply to subjugate them through directed pathogens. This isn’t beyond the realm of possibility. To cut off even the remote possibility of this happening, we need to look seriously at gain-of-function research, ask why we’re doing it and if it’s even necessary if the risks– which are great– exceed the gain, and if these should be shut down. We need to subject these facilities to much greater scrutiny and oversight.

      We have a mess and it’ll take years to unravel everything that happened and is happening. Another question we need to ask is: why did the medical community reject common-sense pandemic plans in place prior to Covid-19, and why did they advocate for measures that originated from a totalitarian regime? Why did the medical community rally against safe drugs that were demonstrated to be effective in halting serious Covid-19 when used early? Why did the medical community do highly biased trials using the wrong dose in the wrong patients at the wrong time, and pass these off as “proof” against a safe drug that could have saved thousands of lives?

      We had a straightforward, reasonable way to deal with Covid-19 early on, and it didn’t involve locking down the healthy population for the sake of the elderly, who were (or could be) largely home-bound anyhow. Why? In fact, everything was done to halt a common-sense, medically valid approach and push through lockdown measures instead. We knew this very early on in the pandemic, yet there can be no mistake that the powers-that-be worked hard to disregard the path of least harm and most benefit, either through ignorance or through blind allegiance to untested Chinese authoritarian measures that were promoted by the WHO.

      Sorry to be so wordy. I’m concerned.

          • Stardust, you have such a sweet, courteous manner; have sound judgment and never make wild accusations with zero evidence; and your remarks are amazingly insightful. Ever consider running for president?

          • Ever consider runniing for local office Mr Freitag…oh wait… Yeah…dog ate registration forms lol 😀

  4. As for the masks themselves, Vermont’s test positivity rate is basically the same post-mandate as it was before the mandate–1.5 to 1.6%. They have made no statistical difference, so wearing them is more an act of faith than it is about science.

  5. Never trust the little weasel Fauci from day 1.. He just likes being on TV. He has been seen without a mask and not being 6 ft away.. He just laughs. He takes money from the lefts and Bill GATES !!!. He needs to be taken out back of a barn.. He lies all the time….

  6. If dialogue continued – freakish Fauci would have been forced to say ‘it doesn’t stop the infection or spread of Covid – it makes it less severe’ another can o’worms lol
