Rand Paul Says No One Should Follow CDC’s New Mask Rally Cry

Rand Paul said the CDC’s ramped up mask guidelines aren’t based on anything concrete and, therefore, can be ignored.

“‘No one should follow the CDC’s antiscience mask mandates,” the senator said in a Twitter video.

“We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads,” Paul said. “Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children? Or will we stand together and say, ‘Absolutely not.’

“Not this time. I choose freedom.”

Paul’s comments come a little more than a week after a reversal of the mask guidelines in May, when the CDC indicated that fully vaccinated individuals no longer needed to shield their faces.

So much for that idea. And Paul isn’t the only one pushing back. No less than CDC director director Rochelle Walensky told Fox News that few have welcomed the change back to a masked America.

“This was not news that I expected the American people to welcome. This weighed heavily on me to have to do this,” she said. “I have no interest in continuing mask guidance, and the best way to stop a new variant from spreading is to have less virus out there and the best way to do that is to get people vaccinated and to mask up until they are.”

But Paul and many others aren’t going to go with a recommendation that they feel isn’t backed by hard evidence just because the CDC thinks it may be a good idea.

  1. The CDC and every shitbird affiliated with them has lied to us from the beginning about this, and now they’re getting panicked that we’ve quit believing their lies. Hell, yesterday they were carrying on about “Your children are going to get sick! And they’ll go to the ICU! And it’s all because of those un-Jabbed Trump people!” Eventually, the lies get too ridiculous, and people stop listening.

    I hope we’re there.

  2. There’s been one positive out of all this bullshit the past 5 years and that is the government is full of shit. It’s filled with indoctrinated leftists that just wing when creating policy and throw shit against a wall and see what sticks during a crises. Every thing they do is driven by polls and the polling industry sucks as we learned in 2016 so nothing good comes out of that. Also all the tech companies and streaming companies are slush funds to pay leftists like the Obamas and the Markles shit tons of money for something they’ve never done. The sad thing is we fund all that shit by subscribing to Netflix and using Twitter and Facebook. We need to cut all that shit out of our lives. There is no good in it. And it makes our enemies filthy rich.

    • The Fed has been full ‘o shit since “Daddy Bush” took office in ’89. It took me a long to realize “the game,” but it started after Reagan won. I realized it when “baby Bush gave us Medicare part “D” and NO closed border. The leftist/globalists/communists/fascists were NOT gonna lose to the US when they had the means to buy off the electorate, media and politicians… the question is, did we discover the anti-America plot in time? Sorrowfully, I do not think we did.

      • Managed decline from both sides of the establishment and as others pointed out, the Republican party took a turn with George H and the rise of the NEOCONS with there NWO.

        Republicans used to be the party of “businessmen” but that was more small business owners, entrepreneurs etc. From George H, to “Dubya” and the Romney-Ryan Rino’s m, that morphed into protecting big corporate interest, all the while these big corporations shifted more and more leftward socially. No matter, the GOP will still go to the mattresses to ensure these America bashing conglomerates have a lower tax rate as the screw their voter base and funnel money and unchecked power to the DNC.

        Sprinkle in a pointless war here, few years of bombing said country there and you’ve got a bloated, but happy, pentagon/military industrial complex.

  3. But Clay, why are you headlining for Senator Jack Johnson??? He is for mask mandates and says businesses have the right to prescribe medical devices.. I have and email from him stating such..
