Rand Paul Slammed for Anti-Vax ‘Mass Murder’ Manifesto: ‘They Can’t Arrest All of Us – No One Should Follow CDC’



U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is being heavily criticized after recording a video urging Americans to ignore CDC coronavirus guidance by not getting vaccinated and not wearing masks, and for promoting his dangerous, life-threatening perspective as a patriotic act of civil disobedience.

“It’s time for us to resist. They can’t arrest all of us,” declares the anti-vaxx Republican who promotes himself as a medical doctor but was the first Senator to contract COVID.

“They can’t keep all your kids home from school,” Paul says in his video, which appeared originally in text form as an op-ed on Fox News but received little notice last week. “They can’t keep every government building closed – although I’ve got a long list of ones they should.”

The Kentucky Senator is making things up. Children are returning to in-person classroom learning and the CDC fully supports this, as do the top teachers’ unions – despite the likelihood it will increase the rate of transmission and number of coronavirus cases.

“We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and feckless bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again,” Paul declares, swinging at policies that do not exist.

“Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs,” Paul threatens. “We have all either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screening and testing so you can continue your drunk with power rein over the Capitol.”

He never in the video says who “we” are.

Paul has consistently maintained that those who have had COVID-19 are immune to it and do not need to be vaccinated, but studies show those who have recovered but refuse to be vaccinated are more than twice as likely to contract the deadly disease again.

Republican turned Democrat Ron Filipkowski, an attorney and activist, posted Sen. Paul’s video to social media:

It is sparking outage at the Kentucky Senator who claims he is “not a career politician.”

Calls to Expel ‘Traitorous’ Madison Cawthorn Grow After He Warns of ‘Bloodshed’ and Lies About ‘Rigged’ Election



Remarks made by U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) are being seen as so volatile and destructive some are calling for his expulsion from Congress.

The North Carolina Republican lawmaker was warned to stop campaigning across the country and start paying attention to his own constituents. On Sunday, The Washington Post reports, Cawthorn  told his local Macon County Republican Party “that elections in the United States are ‘rigged’ and said there will be ‘bloodshed’ if the country’s electoral system continues on its current path.”

Immediately after holding a shotgun Cawthorn said, “I will tell you, as much as I am willing to defend our liberty at all costs, there is nothing that I would dread doing more than having to pick up arms against a fellow American. And the way that we can have recourse against that is if we all passionately demand that we have election security in all 50 states.”

After urging President Joe Biden’s Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment, Cawthorn promised, “I will remove Joe Biden from office, and then, when Kamala Harris inevitably screws up, we will take them down, one at a time.”

And he called those arrested in the January 6 insurrection, which he helped incite, “political prisoners” and “political hostages.”

The Post also reported that on Sunday “a member of the crowd asked Cawthorn, ‘When are you going to call us to Washington again?'”

In response, Cawthorn appeared to suggest that plans for a gathering were in the works, although he did not provide details.

“That — we are actively working on that one,” he said. “I don’t have an answer to that one right yet. But we are actively working on this. We have a few plans in motion that I can’t make public right now.”

As news spreads of his remarks, many are furious and demanding he be expelled from Congress.
