    1. @William George, the United States Congress consists of 2 chambers, the House and the Senate. As a Senator from the state of Kentucky, Rand Paul is a member of Congress.

    2. Even Mitch McConnell is now telling his constituents that 95% of the Covid patients currently in hospitals
      are unvaccinated. Some of these Hillbillly patients are so sick they are telling nurses and doctors they want
      to get the vaccine now, once they realize how sick they are !!! What is dumber: not getting the vaccine
      ORR thinking ANY vaccine will cure the disease it is intended to prevent ???
      My question is: Why are hospitals still accepting unvaccinated Covid patients and thereby putting their entire
      staff at risk ? Everyone in the US has had plenty of time to get the vaccine.
      New Covid patients should now be sent home to allow their kinfolk to take care of them.

    3. @Jeffrey Photonboy You should bet your life that the virus NEVER came from a lab. Display your faith in the liberal BS you just spewed. As for me, I have NO idea where it came from. And I’m not scared to find out. I figure you are just as wrong as you were about Russia collusion
      AS for Trump?? Operation warp speed got me my shot. Not Demented Joe.

    4. @Mark Alexander-Warne Trump was right about you liberals going to tank the economy if they got elected. He was right about Russian Collusion. He was right about his campaign being spied on. He was right about Joe being demented. He was right about the virus started in China. He was right to suspect Fauci was hiding something. He was right to say by June anyone could get vaccinated.
      Trump got a helluva lot more right than you lying liberals. You aren’t in NO position to lecture on truth. PS– Tell Demented Joe that Cuba isn’t protesting to get vaccine shots like he claimed– it was just another liberal lie.

  1. IF lying in congress would be truly a crime for all, ALL politicians would be locked up! So its only a crime for “some”…..

    1. @Essex121514
      I wonder what about his comment triggered the lunatic fringe so much? All he said was that Congressmen lie in Congress.

    2. @Tim B
      Because the Trump tower meeting really was about adoption? I can tell you have never seen the inside of a dentist office.

    3. @Dustin Caso No they almost never do and hey gave themselves immunity from liable laws, so they literally can lie all they want

    4. @Abigal Anderson first, what do you think the term “gain of function” ,means? anti-vaxxers have ignorantly tried to imply it means human transmission.

    5. @Erik Anderson that’s because anyone, not just a politician, who’s in the public spotlight can’t sue for liable or slander. That’s why it was legal for all those democrats to accuse Trump of being a Russian spy and Trump couldn’t sue them for slander. However, if Pelosi’s were to get on her platform and call me a Russian spy, then I could sue her for slander. I know, it’s confusing .

    1. @TheDiamond2009 yeah…cause Rudi Ghooliani isn’t creepy. Marrying your cousin is acceptable rightwing behavior.

    2. It’s all there, Beef-face, I’m talking about the left’s propensity to both encourage and impart violence upon people, amongst many other fascist tactics.

      Referring to Rudy in an exchange which you initiated, about a violent attack by a frothing, rabid lefty who despised Trump, whilst he wasn’t looking, leaving him badly injured, seems like….what’s that word, Whataboutism?

    3. @Beefcake Xpress As Fauci wrote in 2012:

      “Consider this hypothetical scenario: an important gain-of-function experiment involving a virus with serious pandemic potential is performed in a well-regulated, worldclass laboratory by experienced investigators, but the information from the experiment is then used by another scientist who does not have the same training and facilities and is not subject to the same regulations. In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario—however remote—should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?
      Scientists working in this field might say—as indeed I have said—that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.”

  2. Mandates almost always accommodate exceptions for approved reasons. Mandates can do good and are not as crushing as they sound.

    1. Democrats don’t follow there own rules anyways. Texas Democrats refuse to wear masks on crowded buses and planes because they were having a party, now it’s reported they had a super spreader event where many have tested positive for covid. Even Kamala Harris was in contact with these Democrats without masks, Harris was swiftly brought to Walter Reid hospital for testing and injections.

    2. Could you imagine that if in London during the blitz, people refused to follow the blackout mandate because they didn’t want the the government telling them when they could turn their lights off and on?

    1. Not to mention the MyPillow guy.
      I trust the one who does the Jimmy Kimmel show, more than former President Blowhards’ butt munch.

    2. Why would you go with a corporation’s word, instead of the science? What is a “corporate level”?
      The science shows the vaccine is safe and effective, and Cletus at the auto parts store says it’s made from baby parts, by the devil. Who you gonna trust?
      Now, go look up the Genetic Fallacy for the ridiculousness of your absolutist, thought-terminating cliche’.

    3. @Kenneth C I personally have studied mRNA vaccines and believe they are relatively safe… BUT to infer that the SCIENCE iss proven, and that’s what you are doing here, is RIDICULOUS, naive & (in your case) arrogant AF. For example, the J&J vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine… a traditional vaccine without the traditional approach to getting it approved… is absurd & I’d fight to the end to keep that SH!T out of me & my families veins…. but it’s not just J&J… Moderna (& it’s partner Pfizer) have investments/grants from DARPA & Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations (among many others) that pre-date the pandemic. I’ve received their vaccine & feel it’s relatively safe, but I can’t deny that the $$ & power pushing through this organization has me very skeptical. The studies that have shown thickening of the heart valves & all the cardio “pathy” issues pointed out in adolescents & youth taking their vaccines is all swept under the rug & ignored… not only ignored by rallied against by politicians and corporations, with the aim to put that vaccine in the veins of all, no matter what. This is all disgusting & it’s also pathetic of so many, like yourself, siding with the corporate-government machinery. I question your motives and/or condemn your naivety.

    1. You don’t know much about narcissist Chuck.. as a narcissist never has a clue that he is..

  3. “I said that we didn’t fund train-track-junction research, I cannot help that senator Paul doesn’t understand sciency talk. ” – Anthony Fauci in 2022

    1. Hey Jax Totrumpboyporn,
      Love your channel image; is it by an Impressionist? Is it by Monet, titled ‘White non-college educated male’? Or is it abstract, maybe Pollack’s ‘The Imbecile’? (snickers and sincerity;’,. )

    2. @Ann van de Kew So many expensive words! I am honoured that someone as loquacious as you humbles themselves to talk to a dummy like me!

    3. @Nabil Esmail this is dr. Anthony fauci Wuhan Coronavirus the same virus he has funded and been a part of since its Inception and continues to fund to this day. Virologist have not tracked this virus back to the labs in Wuhan right down to the exact DNA sequence and propane makeup. So whether it was an accident or done on purpose this virus is dr. Anthony fauci Wuhan Coronavirus

  4. Quite the game of chess. Each one choose their set of words which will ripple ahead. On one side, accusations made to forward their own agenda. The other side, defending future agendas that may or may not be necessary.

    One thing is for certain, each YouTube channel you watch is extremely biased with their own following.

    The end game and the entity that wins. Google and Apple. Let that sink in for future agendas. You all have this platform to argue and claim expertise,
    Blah blah blah.

    In the end, it doesn’t really matter, we are all extremely small cogs in a much much larger complex society.

    Good luck all, we’re all in this together.

    1. Quite the game of chess, although Fauci finds himself in zugzwang with the mating net closing in. It’s game over for him, he lied, and on two occasions in Congress to Sen. Paul. I understand that it’s been referred to the DoJ and that there are 24 experts prepared to testify against Fauci on precisely what gain-of-function entails and how Fauci’s words are bare-faced lies.

      All that said, the DoJ is intensely partisan so we shouldn’t expect justice to be served.

    2. The only political side is from the politician. Having a medical “side” isn’t a matter of opinion that varies randomly between equally-qualified people.

    3. Phesterful, yes, you’re absolutely right. Although holding a qualification and having deep expertise in a specific area doesn’t preclude you from being disingenuous and, I’ll say it, telling stone-cold, brazen lies in a desperate attempt to protect your integrity and position of power. History is littered with examples.

      As for Fauci’s deep expertise, I’m not going to ignore Kary Mullis’ view of Fauci, that he knows nothing about anything, and indeed the same of anybody in senior scientific office in government. Hyperbole, of course, although it emphasises a point. And regardless of what you think of him, Kary Mullis was a Nobel Prize winning biochemist, so he might know a thing or two on the topic of gain-of-function.

  5. FREE SPEECH ENDS……WHERE SLANDER BEGINS.
    (THE REAL FACTS)

    FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES.

    Slander: meaning
    The action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person’s reputation.
    or
    Making false and damaging statements about someone.

    End of Education.
    You’re welcome!

  6. US Covid deaths 625,808 New Zealand 26. US has 24,070 times more Covid deaths than New Zealand.
    11 months since New Zealand’s last Covid death, watching American media is like stepping back in time.
    America: Stop looking in the mirror for answers and start following countries that lead the world in pandemic management.

    1. And you don’t have around one million illegal immigrants crossing the border per annum at the moment, all riddled with covid. Absolutely riddled.

    2. @Micah Burns Correct. But not in the context of that being the defining thing in explaining the different outcomes between the two countries. For example NZ has a leader who took Covid19 seriously right from the start and immediately began to implement appropriate measures. They didn’t have a leader who denied the severity of covid19. Or deliberately mislead his people, actively discouraging social distancing, while he himself held mass spreader events up and down the country in a desperate attempt to get re elected while all the time knowing full well how bad and contagious covid19 really was.

    3. @Gavin McEwen Yeah I agree Trump did a horrendous job, but still you can’t compare NZ to the US or any country with a population over 50 million. It’s just not the same, so show me a country that isn’t an island that has a sizeable population that has covid numbers anywhere near the numbers NZ has.

    4. @Gavin McEwen And if you are going to say South Korea, fine, but it too is basically an island because NOTHING crosses it’s northern border.

    5. @Gavin McEwen Leadership in NZ in many ways is comparable to leadership across Europe, and in Europe it has not been a good story.

  7. Some of the qualifications to be in political office. Smile when you are out in public and don’t feel like it, lie through your teeth, and pretend you care in front of the public.

    1. Tim, yes I did, I’ve watched the full exchange three times, and not just the abridged version here. Feel free to make your point though. What is it?

    2. Tim, evidence of what? We’re going round in circles here. State your case.

      What does he need to present evidence of, precisely? He has essentially pointed out that Fauci authorised NIH funding of EcoHealth Alliance, knowing it was a conduit for funds to be routed to the Wuhan Lab. the reason? It’s called layering, it’s to attempt to conceal the funding via an intermediary because gain-of-function was illegal in the US.

      He stated that the Wuhan Lab performs gain-of-function research, which they do, by their own admission. Fauci then lied about the definition of gain-of-function, and it’s clear that it’s because it’s close to home, because if covid-19 did originate from the Wuhan Lab as now seems likely – and always did to me, given the known facts and views of virologists who have been censored – then NIH funding could have been partly responsible for producing a novel pathogen which has killed millions.

      Tell me, is that not something you’re interested in, or do you want to sweep it under the carpet?

    3. @TheDiamond2009 no. Your rhe one going in circles. To quote Aerosmith ” when you talk to me in circles take your foot out of your mouth” Dont get mad get even. Good song. Bye

    4. And your syntax and grammar are quite appalling, young fellow. There is little point arguing with a dim-witted child, they are bereft.

  8. Fauci is an expert in analysis and infection, virologist. Rand, an eye doctor, is expert in refraction, defraction and optics!

    1. As Fauci wrote in 2012:

      “Consider this hypothetical scenario: an important gain-of-function experiment involving a virus with serious pandemic potential is performed in a well-regulated, worldclass laboratory by experienced investigators, but the information from the experiment is then used by another scientist who does not have the same training and facilities and is not subject to the same regulations.

    2. keep trying to misinform people my dear CCP, look at the ratings. people are waking up. you will be obsolete in the next months

  9. MSNBC could you do a piece on the entire break down on 5th grade level how the creating the COVID vaccine got started and made so quickly. I get it- but the whole message has not gotten out to the people who are oppositional defiant.

  10. ” Parish the thought of intervening with DR. Fauci”
    And that is our journalists in a nutshell, afraid to push back .
