Tuesday saw Senator Rand Paul and Anthony Fauci again lay into each other during a hearing, with the latter accusing Paul of using their previous exchanges and the COVID crisis for political gain.
Fauci brandished print outs from Paul’s website, claiming that the Senator was personally attacking him in order to raise campaign funds.
The head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) also suggested that by claiming there has been subterfuge and lying during past testimony, Paul is intentionally riling up ‘crazies’ who have sent Fauci death threats.
“What happens when he gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue is that all of a sudden that kindles the crazies out there and I have threats upon my life, harassment of my family and my children with obscene phone calls, because people are lying about me,” Fauci told the Senate panel.
Fauci then claimed a guy from California had been arrested in Iowa last month as he was on a trip to kill Fauci with an AR15 rifle.
Fauci said “The police asked him where he was going and he was going to Washington, D.C., to kill Dr. Fauci,” he said. “They found in his car, an AR-15 and multiple magazines of ammunition because he thinks that maybe I’m killing people.”
“In usual fashion, senator, you are distorting everything about me,” Fauci said, adding “This happens all the time, you personally attack me, with absolutely not a shred of evidence about anything you say.”
Paul shot back at Fauci, “It’s disappointing for you to suggest that people who dare to question you are responsible somehow for violent threats.”
Paul responded to Fauci by charging “You have politically attacked your colleagues and in a politically reprehensible way you’ve attacked their reputations.”
The Senator also noted that “The idea that a government official like yourself would claim unilaterally to represent science and that any criticism of you would be considered a criticism of science itself is quite dangerous.”
Paul also charged that Fauci and former National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins, had colluded to bring about a “published takedown” of scientists who didn’t follow their narrative on COVID and resisted lockdowns and other severe restrictions.
Following Project Veritas’ release of documents from DARPA highlighting how Fauci and Collins spoke about a “take down” of scientists who they disagreed with, Paul also charged that Fauci attempted to discredit scientists who amplified evidence that the COVID pandemic originated with a lab leak.
Paul further noted “In an email exchange with Dr. [Francis] Collins you conspire and I quote here directly from the email to create a quick and devastating published takedown of three prominent epidemiologist from Harvard, Oxford and Stanford. (Apparently, there’s a lot of fringe epidemiologist at Harvard, Oxford and Stanford.) And you quote in the email that they are from Dr. Collins and you you agree that they are fringe. Immediately as this takedown ethic.”
“A published takedown, though,” Paul continued, “you know, doesn’t exactly conjure up the image of a dispassionate scientist. adding Instead of engaging them on the merits you and Dr. Collins sought to smear them is fringe and take them down. And not in journals, in lay press. This is not only antithetical to the scientific method; it’s cheap politics and it’s reprehensible, Dr. Fauci. Do you really think it’s appropriate to use your $420,000 salary to attack scientists that disagree with you?”
Elsewhere during the hearing, Fauci was caught on a hot mic calling Senator Roger Marshall a “moron” after getting into a tense back and forth concerning financial disclosures.

Report: Justice Sonia Sotomayor Working Remotely Because Gorsuch Refuses to Wear Face Mask in Court
US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is still working remotely because fellow justice Neil Gorsuch refuses to wear a face mask.
Triple vaxxed Sotomayor, 67, is overweight and has diabetes so she is at high risk for severe illness or death from Covid.
Someone should tell Sotomayor that a face mask is not going to stop her from getting Covid.
It was pretty jarring earlier this month when the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court took the bench for the first time since the omicron surge over the holidays. All were now wearing masks. All, that is, except Justice Neil Gorsuch. What’s more, Justice Sonia Sotomayor was not there at all, choosing instead to participate through a microphone setup in her chambers.
Sotomayor has diabetes, a condition that puts her at high risk for serious illness, or even death, from COVID-19. She has been the only justice to wear a mask on the bench since last fall when, amid a marked decline in COVID-19 cases, the justices resumed in-person arguments for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.
Now, though, the situation had changed with the omicron surge, and according to court sources, Sotomayor did not feel safe in close proximity to people who were unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, in some form asked the other justices to mask up.
A couple weeks ago Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that over 100,000 children are hospitalized and in serious condition because of Covid.
“Many are on ventilators,” Sotomayor said.
This is a lie and the Supreme Court still has not corrected the record.
