Senator Rand Paul made some remarks to the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce in Somerset, Kentucky over the weekend. During that conversation, he mocked the COVID-19 “leadership” (or lack thereof) from President Biden, Dr. Fauci, and Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D).
Senator Rand Paul has more common sense in his little pinky than all three men have combined, and he has proven it with his sparring sessions with Dr. Fauci on Capitol Hill.
First of all, there was one instance where Rand Paul took issue with the “one size fits all” approach of Democrat Governors Gretchen Whitmer and Andrew Cuomo and White House Physician Ron Fauci. During this exchange, he said, “With all due respect, Dr. Fauci, I don’t think you are the ‘end all’ on all of this.”
Interestingly enough, it was during that same exchange that Rand Paul said: “When the history books are written, this will be a story of wrong prediction after wrong prediction. We are defying everything we know about immunity by forcing people to wear masks, and you [Fauci] parade around even wearing two masks just for show.”
On March 18, Senator Rand Paul got into yet another heated exchange with Dr. Fauci over his push to mandate that Americans continue to wear masks.
“You continue to make policies that are largely based on conjecture,” Senator Paul said at the time. “There is no science behind what you are doing.”
Earlier this week, Senator Rand Paul began sparring with Dr. Fauci yet again, this time over the NIH funding this same Wuhan Virology Lab where the “gain of Function” work on man-made COVID work had been done.
Senator Paul appeared on Fox and Friends the other day and began mocking the mainstream media because they were ignoring the truth about Dr. Fauci and just how involved he was in the Wuhan Virus pandemic. “IF Fauci had been interviewed by a journalist that would have asked, ‘Did the NIH give money to the Wuhan lab?’ they would have quickly figured out that was incontrovertibly true.”
IT was during this same session that Senator Rand Raul blasted Dr. Fauci, accusing him of knowing that his group “did indeed give money, but it was only for other research, and not for juicing up these super viruses.”
Rand Paul continued. “That’s sort of like using that old Planned Parenthood argument: yes, we are giving taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood, but they aren’t using it for abortion, and that’s kind of like what Dr. Fauci is arguing for in this instance here. He is saying, ‘Yeah, my NIH organization gave funding to this Wuhan lab, but they won’t using those resources for building up viruses.'”
Finally, we have political commentator Steve Hilton, and he recently said that after he reveals the “damning” origins of the influenza virus that Dr. Fauci is “going to need friends in high places.” Hilton performed a study where it was demonstrated that several years ago they were able to make the influenza virus simply by injecting it from one ferret to another. Part of the reason for this is because ferrets have respiratory systems that are similar to humans.
“Gain of Function” Virus Research Defined
Of course, you are probably wondering just what “gain of function” research truly is and why it’s such a bad deal that Dr. Fauci is a huge supporter of this. “Gain of Function” research was born when these researchers had the bright idea to engineer these extremely deadly and highly contagious viruses in a lab just in an effort to help researchers know how to fight them. In a nutshell, what we are seeing is Stephen King’s “The Stand” playing out in real life. Here’s where it gets even messier, however.
According to Hilton, this “Gain of Function” research has been funded by none other than the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease’s Dr. Anthony Fauci! Additionally, the Wuhan Institute of Virology is one of the leading laboratories studying the COVID virus.
“Imagine if a deadly virus engineered in a lab to be incredibly contagious somehow escaped from a lab; it could wreak havoc—precisely because it was designed to do this—not by nature, but by us!” Hilton said.
“Gain of Functions research has always been highly controversial,” Hilton explained. The Revolutionary host explained that in 2014, the Obama administration placed a complete moratorium on this kind of research, “following recent biosafety incidents at federal research facilities.
“Despite the controversy studying this type of research, it always had one steadfast champion, a leading figure in the world of infectious diseases—Anthony Fauci,” Hilton explained. “His institute funded that first ferret study,” he explained, adding, “At the time, he co-wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post describing this research as ‘A flu risk worth taking…important information and insights can come from generating a potentially dangerous virus in a laboratory.’”
Is it possible that liberals such as Dr. Fauci just orchestrated this so that they could get their way? Hmmm…
Either way, your comments are appreciated.
