Senator Rand Paul video calls BS on COVID madness [Video]

“We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads.” Very true.

The Senator from Kentucky is laying it all out… and Twitter let him.

Senator Rand Paul on Twitter: “We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children?Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not. Not this time. I choose freedom. pic.twitter.com/XrI2tjdAHW / Twitter”

It is good when politicians express their resistance towards government overreach, and in this, Senator Paul deserves credit. However, it is not enough.

This resistance must be joined by all of us. Vaccinated or not, tested or not, the basic issue is liberty, not disease. Doctor Anthony Fauci has used his power to create one of the most pathetic tyrannies to ever come into existence: a tyranny based on people’s fears of getting sick and dying being played upon, used, abused.

Many people in the United States are getting wise to this scam. This is not to say that COVID-19 is not real; it appears to be quite real – a lot of people I know have had it, at least one has died from it. But to cower in fear before it is patently nuts – just as it is to cower in fear with the notion that I could get cancer and die, or get heart disease and die, or get hit by a crashing alien spacecraft and die…

It may come as news to many people, but, we are ALL going to die. It is just a matter of when, and how, and the only thing that matters is how we meet our end and our Creator, having lived the life we were given.

And yes, this ultimately is a “religious” question, for the matters of life and death do not rest within human power. Only the Divine has this ability to give life or take it. We can cooperate, or steal the “right” to end lives, for ourselves or others, but my refusing vaccination does not kill anyone else, nor would my accepting vaccination save anybody else. Such talk, even coming from authorities within the Church, is extraordinarily arrogant and poorly thought, not at all in keeping with the Christian gospel.

Bishop George of the Australia / New Zealand diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church outside Russia said it very well in a recent pastoral letter (reformatted and emphasized for clarity):

There are some Orthodox hierarchs who condone taking the vaccines, even though they contain fetal cells, or are derived from fetal cells, thereby being a direct product of abortion.

In good conscience, as an Orthodox Christian, I cannot agree with this view and cannot condone it. However, considering that there are some Orthodox hierarchs who do allow these vaccines, and considering the great fear campaign that is being waged by the governments and the media, I can understand if people do decide to get vaccinated.

People also need to know that many of those who are getting vaccinated are dying or experiencing severe side effects.

We must be aware of what we are doing.

Whatever our personal choice is in this matter, we must still live as Orthodox Christians, loving and encouraging one another, being an example of Christian love and piety both to those in our Church communities and to others.

Let us re-focus our priorities and focus more on our own spiritual life, not just on preserving our physical life in this sinful world, so when the time comes that God summons us to the next life, we may be able to give a good account of our life here on earth, time in which we should be repenting and preparing ourselves spiritually for eternity.

We should remember that whether we get sick from the virus or not is up to God, and when and how we die is up to God, not determined by a virus. Let us ask God to give us repentance, the “vaccine” for eternity, as Metropolitan Onouphry of Kiev has expressed it, so that we will be able to live and die as good Orthodox Christians.

This is a time with faith and action must unite, and even non-Christians and unbelievers have common sense enough to know there is a LOT of truth in this.

I fine appeal by the US senator – one of the few laudable US politicians, at least on this issue. George Galloway, whom I greatly admire for his general honesty and courage has not done so well on the SarsCov 2 scam-demic. He is also very stubborn, which is fine when you are right, but really is dreadfully awful when you are wrong. He thinks because Putin and Xi also believe in the ‘plan-demic’ or at least they say so, that all these people cannot be bought and in this plot all together. Well he lacks imagination. However even stubborn… Read more »

I disagree with Rand Paul on many issues, but my admiration for his common sense on some other key issues keeps filling me with admiration for his courage and determination to speak out. We need more people like him, a lot more. But alas….

It seems now that ‘the Saker’ and Ron Unz have also been stung by entering into the ‘plan-demic’ or ‘scam-demic’ , the Sars-cov 2 debate on their web sites. The funny thing is that all of those, or most by large numbers completely disagreed with any sympathy which Saker/Unz showed for the official Sars-cov 2 narrative, which is being drip-fed from MSM and their EU and US governments. Both Saker and Unz [and dear George Galloway!] have not understood and ignore why people are so opposed and upset by the one-sided and unscientific positions of their governments. They are protesting… Read more »

I agree, the people you mention have proven not up to the task on this one. It seems that the Three ‘C’s of Conspiracy – concealment, chronology and complexity have overwhelmed their little grey cells as Hercule Poirot might have put it. But we, as Christians, should know better. How many times a year do we hear in our churches the incantation against tyrants and even against stubborn know-it-alls: “Put not your trust in princes, in sons of men, in whom there is no salvation.” The unholiness of the jab, its satanic parodying of Holy Communion, should not be lost… Read more »

When the FDA voted on emergency use of these vaccines over a year ago, 5 of its 17 experts did not vote in favor. They have since learned the vaccines enter the bloodstream and may cause clotting. This explains why boosters have not been approved because each jab places more clotting stuff in the bloodstream where it cannot escape. Meanwhile, Fauci continues to demonstrate his unprofessionalism by stating the FDA will approve these vaccines next month. This places pressure on members to vote in favor of what they may now consider an unsafe vaccine. Would Fauci want them to vote… Read more »

Fauci is an oligarch, a charlatan and a eugenecist. For him, the more deaths and disabilities the better. When he witheld inexpensive cures from the sick and dying as Regan’s Czar in the war against AIDS – another invented and artificially spread and enhanced ‘disease’ – he was preparing for this Plandemic. AIDS was a dry run. It killed fifty million globally and 500 thousand in the USA. Truly a case of Mission Accomplished for the Eugenecists and their State and Corporate accomplices. The death count here promises to reach into the billions. Not from a virus, but from the… Read more »

Quote, “Only the Divine has this ability to give life or take it. ” Unquote. Does that mean NATO and the U.S. military machine are God’s tools ???

The fact that we have allowed NATO and the US military to exist is proof that God has given us free will and we have used it badly. So, yes, you are wiser than you know but you confuse ‘God’s tools’ with our own creations.
God’s tool is our freedom.
