“We shouldn’t have government mandates based on what we don’t know. We should be making mandates based on what we know,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, told Your World on Tuesday.
PAUL: Here’s the problem with Dr. Fauci. When they can prove that something is a real problem, consider a warrant. The last time he [Dr. Fauci] had rejection with me, he said, “What about the variants? You may have had the infection or may have had the vaccine, but you may be susceptible to the variants.” All the studies so far show that the vaccine works well against most of the variants and that the natural disease works very well against the variants. In fact, a study published in January by one of its [Fauci’s] own institutes, one of its scientists said that natural immunity, those who obtained it in a natural way, are immune to all variants.
What we need to do is not push fear. Is it perfect? No. The onus is on the government to prove that there is a widespread practice – people who have had it or are not getting it by the tens of thousands, or [that] vaccinated people still transmit it. Even the CDC admitted, before anyone backed it up, but the head of the CDC was on TV saying if you had been vaccinated we found out you were not wearing it, not transmitting. It’s good news. These people hate good news because it means you are right out of their pocket and can live your life. They don’t want you to be free from their mandates. They like the idea of submission because most of these people, deep down, are great public servants.
So far the good news is that we are finding long-standing T cell-mediated immunity, memory immunity, for people who have had it. There aren’t any big studies showing that we get widespread re-infection from those who have had it. It’s very, very rare. Thirty-one million people have had it in our country. That’s a handful to a few hundred that may have been re-infected and no surge from re-infection. the people [who] get it again, if they already have immunity. They usually take a mild form, if they resume it.
Paul also discusses the controversy over Major League Baseball’s withdrawal from the Atlanta All-Star game, saying it may be time for Republicans to start boycotting companies that opposed Georgia’s election law. .
PAUL: Does baseball, the nation’s hobby, want to be the Democrats’ hobby? Does Coca-Cola want to sell Coca only to Democrats? Does Delta only want to steal Democrats? They took an extremely partisan look at this electoral law which in fact broadens access to the vote. It does some things for postal voting, but it expands advance voting. There is more early voting in Georgia than in Denver. So what kind of logic or what kind of rule or standard are they using to judge which states we’re going to play baseball in?
The way they treat a Republican-passed bill and the way they treat Republicans tell me Coca-Cola doesn’t want Republicans to drink their product and Delta doesn’t want Republicans on their plane and the Major League. Baseball does not. I want Republicans in their stadium. If so, they are stupid to anger half the audience by waking up like this. In the end, they will all regret it. Stacey Abrams backs off and says, “I had no idea it would cost my state $ 100 million.” Losing the Major League All-Star game cost Georgia $ 100 million. Stacey Abrams is now responsible. Can you imagine that she wants to represent a state that cost her a $ 100 million contract because of the madness and lies about the electoral law that was passed?
