Senate Passes Dr. Rand Paul’s Motion to Stop Gain-of-Function Research Funding in China

If we have learned anything from this pandemic, it’s that risky virus-enhancing research – like the type conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, also funded by the U.S. government – is an unnecessary form of science that could lead to the death of millions of people. This vote brings us one step closer to ensuring that this never happens in the future and prohibits taxpayer dollars from being used to fund dangerous and unnecessary research in China.

Today, the U.S. Senate passed a motion to instruct conferees on H.R.4521, to retain the language originally introduced by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) as an amendment to S.1260 and passed by the Senate in May 2021 that prohibits funds made available to any federal agency from being used for gain of function research conducted in China.

“Even as Dr. Fauci denies it, there is strong evidence COVID-19 started in a lab in Wuhan,” said Dr. Paul. […]

BACKGROUND:

Dr. Paul’s motion calls for conferees to retain the Paul amendment the Senate adopted by voice vote on May 25, 2021, to S. 1260, the United States Innovation and Competition Act of 2021. That amendment would prevent federal taxpayer dollars from being used for gain-of-function research in China.

Rand Paul: ‘Once Upon a Time Anthony Fauci Could Tell the Truth’ About Natural Immunity

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) observed that Dr. Anthony Fauci was once able to “tell the truth” about natural immunity — a reality the White House chief medical adviser has largely dismissed throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

“Hmmm…Once upon a time Anthony Fauci could tell the truth…What happened?” Paul asked, referring to an older clip of Fauci on CSPAN, where the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) chief firmly defended the concept of natural immunity against an illness.

When asked if someone who had the flu for 14 days needed a flu shot, Fauci said, “Well, no. If she got the flu for 14 days, she’s as protected as anybody can be because the best vaccination is to get infected yourself.”

“If she really has the flu she definitely doesn’t need a flu vaccine,” he continued, adding that “she doesn’t need it” because “the most potent vaccination is getting infected yourself”:

Rand Paul: Fauci Is a Liar And I’m Asking for a Criminal Referral From the DOJ (Videos)

Will it go anywhere? Probably not. This is a Democratic-run DOJ. And Fauci and his legion of lab coat fascists have given Democrats the biggest in-kind contribution to their election efforts by fanning the panic over COVID. It’s not grounded in total science fiction. He’s been anointed a saint by the Left. They can’t kill the one who helped remove Trump from office.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has had enough of Anthony Fauci’s antics. He’s done. A large portion of the country agrees as well. The man cannot decide…on anything. The number of flip-flops is many. He’s been wrong about almost everything about COVID. He’s been caught engaging in political theater after he was vaccinated. Remember when he still wore a mask? Yeah, he admitted it wasn’t necessary post-vaccination. In his emails, he admits the store-bought masks don’t curb the spread of COVID but peddled mask mania regardless. And he might have committed a felony for lying before Congress. There’s something more to these grants that were given to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 

Fauci hates talking about it. He gets visibly irritated when asked about what the money was used for over there. Was it for gain-of-function research? Every day we learn more and the conclusion that this escaped from a lab becomes clearer. Katie wrote about the exchange Fauci and Paul had yesterday. It was quite testy:

Rand Paul brings colorful props to Senate floor to call out wasteful research: ‘Lizards on a Treadmill’ (Video)

Kentucky senator opposes borrowing money from China to fund ‘ridiculous’ research

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., arrived on the Senate floor Friday morning accompanied by a stack of colorful poster boards to rail against “ridiculous” taxpayer-funded research at the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies.

Paul, a fiscal conservative, delivered a 32-minute speech Friday morning to oppose the bipartisan Endless Frontier Act that would expand science and technology research that proponents say will help the U.S. counter China. Paul warned of the $28 trillion national debt and said the U.S. should be reining in wasteful spending and not borrowing more money from China to fund such legislation. 

“I don’t think this bill makes us stronger. In fact, I think the Chinese sit back … and laugh at America thinking we’re going to be stronger by borrowing more money from China,” Paul said. “So I just don’t think it makes us any stronger at all. I think it makes us weaker. It would be one thing if it weren’t being so horribly wasted.”

Dr. Paul Questions Dr. Fauci on Wuhan Lab – May 11, 2021 (Video)

Dr Fauci dissembled or tried to hide his long time support for ‘gain-of-function’ research which creates super-viruses that jump from animals to humans. 11 labs in the US create these super-viruses in the US and one of them collaborated with Wuhan Virology Inst —Fauci has supported NIH funds for all these labs! Watch my exchange with Dr. Fauci in today’s HELP Hearing.

Rand Paul: Fraud happened, presidential election ‘stolen’

‘The courts haven’t decided the facts. They never looked at the facts’

In a Senate hearing Wednesday that erupted into a heated exchange between the chairman and the ranking member, Republican Sen. Rand Paul charged the 2020 election was “stolen,” arguing courts never addressed the evidence.

“The courts haven’t decided the facts. They never looked at the facts,” the Kentucky senator said.

“The fraud happened. The election in many ways was stolen and the only way it will be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws,” he said.

Paul’s remarks came after former independent counsel Ken Starr affirmed that some 60 court cases brought by the Trump campaign and its allies were rejected primarily for procedural reasons as opposed to their merits.
