I was on Twitter and watched a very interesting video by Ron Paul where he attacked Fauci about him saying that we may have to wear masks for years. Dr. Paul has been a doctor for his entire adult life, and his opinion on these matters are probably better than Fauci's.

You should check this video out.

Think Fauci is going to back off his mask obsession even with Covid disappearing across the country? No way! Now he's saying masks are here to stay...to fight the flu! Are Americans going to take this? Watch today's Liberty Report:

Republicans are attacking Dr. Fauci about his involvement in the Chinese lab that may have developed the Covid-19 virus and accidentally released it. This is what I was saying a year ago after reading an article on Natural News.

Republican anger with Fauci reaches new heights

Republican rage directed at Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser on the coronavirus pandemic to Presidents Trump and Biden, seemed to reach new heights over the weekend, with former Trump administration trade adviser Peter Navarro claiming the renowned physician and scientist has likely "killed millions of Americans."

"For whatever reasons, Fauci wanted to weaponize that virus, and he is the father of it. He has killed millions of Americans if that thing came from the lab. Now it's 99.999 percent sure it did," Navarro told former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon regarding an unproven theory that the coronavirus originated in a lab in Wuhan, China, that had received funds from the National Institutes of Health, where Fauci is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

For the better part of the past year, every time Fauci speaks on the pandemic, some Republicans take to social media to decry him. On Sunday, Fauci's appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" sparked just such a reaction. Asked if Americans might need to wear masks seasonally to prevent the continued spread of COVID-19, Fauci responded, "You know, that's quite possible."

Kelli Ward, chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party, quickly fired off a response to that suggestion.

The escalation of Navarro's rhetoric against Fauci has been especially notable. In a March interview with Fox Business Network host Maria Bartiromo, Navarro seized on to the unproven theory that the coronavirus had originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

"This is the building that Tony Fauci built," Navarro told Bartiromo. "He took American taxpayer money and funneled it, laundered it through NIH, and gave to this lab so it could conduct the kind of research that led basically to the virus, if Bob Redfield [former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is right."

Navarro, whose antipathy for Fauci is well documented, was referring to $600,000 in U.S. funding that the Wuhan Institute of Virology received between 2014 and 2019 to study coronaviruses originating in bats. Fauci is the director of the National Institutes of Health, which awarded the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance a $3.4 million grant in 2014. Of that money, $600,000 went to the Wuhan lab.

A March report by the World Health Organization found that the theory that the coronavirus had been leaked from the Wuhan lab to be the least convincing for the origin of the pandemic, and that a much more likely explanation was a naturally occurring jump from animals to humans. The report, however, has failed to satisfy critics of Fauci and the Chinese government who believe, without evidence, that a plot is afoot to hide the true origins of the virus.

Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., said the problem with Fauci's Sunday "Meet the Press" interview was that the doctor wasn't asked about Navarro's theory on the origin of the coronavirus.

Fauci needs the masks to spread fear and keep him on the Sunday shows. If things go back to normal, Fauci will be history and he knows it.

Did you check out Ron Paul's video? He was joking about how they are offering free beer and a shot if people get a vaccine in one of these bars in Buffalo. They really have fun about how Buffalo bars are offering free beer if you get a shot.

I sincerely hope there are no long term effects with this vax. As we know, it is different as it is proactive. The fact the drug companies wanted total legal immunity makes me nervous.

That was my original thought, as I wanted to wait and see if there were any long term affects. But who knows? Maybe the vaccine has nano-tech in it so that they can track us, like in X-Files and other Sy Fy shows.

The news here is that 3 Yankee coaches who were vaxxed, have covid again. Sheesh...

I see where the Yankees all received the J&J shot. I'm now glad I got the Pfizer shot. Hopefully there are not too many "breaktrough" cases with that shot.

It is unsettling for people to get vaxxed and then catch it again. Either the vax is a joke or there is another variant running around.

It is scary to think that there's a possibility of getting Covid even though fully vaccinated. As of last week, there were 242 cases (add 3 Yankees).

Of the 1,467,189 persons who have completed their vaccine series, 242 have been confirmed as contracting COVID-19.  Of those, 109 (45%) had no symptoms of the disease.  

Three deaths have occurred among the 242 vaccine breakthrough cases.  All three individuals were confirmed to have had underlying medical conditions and were in the following age groups:  55-64 (1), 65-74 (1), and 75+ (1).  Nationally, the CDC has reported a total of 132 vaccine breakthrough deaths.

Another report said there were over 9,000 cases.
 
Quote: 
At the end of April, more than 9,000 Americans were reported to be infected after being vaccinated, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While that’s a tiny percentage of the 95 million people fully inoculated at the time, researchers still want to find out what specific mechanisms may be spurring the infections.

It could be a number of things. One is maybe the vax was not properly re-fridgerated etc

I just hope we are safe for at least half a year to a year. They are talking about booster shots.

F that. No more untested vaccines for me. I enjoy walking and sleeping at night.

Recently, they were saying we may need to get booster shots every year. I bet you're onboard with that. LOL

I would not of gotten the vax were it not for the wedding next month. I did not wanna take a chance of getting a positive test and missing the festivities; most of which I paid for.

So far, I have not had any problems with the Pfizer shot. However, with the confusion over wearing masks, I will still don the masks when in close quarters, especially when shopping. Who knows if the masks are actually needed or now with all this confusing data coming out from the CDC and Fauci? But I'm not taking any chances.

Another good thing about masks/gaiters. My allergies have not been bad even though the pollen count is high. I think wearing my gaiter when scootering to work each day does help keep my intake of pollen to a minimum. Also, the face shield on the helmet might help too. Normally, when it gets this warm, I wear my face shield - less helmet but not this season.

Also, I spoke with my friend who also has the same symptoms with his legs. I learned he had the moderna vax not the Pfizer. Go figure????

It's strange that your friend had the moderna vax and still had the same symptoms. I'm pretty stumped.

I usually don't wear a mask, except when mandated in stores. My allergies have been normal, mostly with itchy eyes and some sneezing.

I was surprised to say the least that he had the moderna. I just assumed he had the Pfizer.

With him having the Moderna, it begs the question why you two had the same exact symptoms.
