Every weekend I come back to Kentucky and try to purge my brain of the hypocrisy and stupidity I’ve witnessed in Congress the week before. Otherwise, it just piles up.

It’s noon on Sunday and I still haven’t purged the nonsense I dealt with in person this past week.🧵 Image I heard the Democrats argue vociferously that a wrist brace is a bump stock. If there was any doubt of their profound ignorance, they removed it by displaying a poster of the wrist brace and reiterated it would facilitate full-auto fire. Image

Last night the rules committee, controlled by Nancy Pelosi, refused to allow the House of Representatives to vote on my National Defense Authorization Act amendment which would have defunded the military COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

(Continued…) I want to thank @RepMattGaetz for testifying on behalf of this amendment in the Rules Committee.

If this issue is important to you, please express your gratitude to the other 23 colleagues who cosponsored this amendment:

🧵Good governments are those which institute laws that only criminalize behavior of criminals.

A good government would not make laws that regulate most aspects of every person’s life.

Yet some pretend a more prosperous and virtuous society can result from bigger government. 🧵The fallacy that bigger government provides us a more virtuous society is found in one of two propositions:

(1) people to be governed will reliably select lawmakers more intelligent and virtuous than the average one of them to make rules regulating the behavior of all of them.

From a friend:

We must, should and need to remember Independence Day not once a year but every day of our lives we should be living the Declaration of Independence. Etched in our minds. Embedded in our souls. Either we learn to govern ourselves or we will be ruled by others, our rights will become privileges conveyed only if we are obedient to the masters who we have ceded sovereignty over us.

Neither clinical trials nor real-world data showed that “vaccinated people don’t carry the virus.”

Vaccine manufacturers convinced the FDA to give them EUA based on trials that were designed specifically to avoid testing whether vaccines prevent people from carrying SARS-CoV2. But that didn’t stop people like the CDC director, Dr Fauci, and Joe Biden, from saying that “vaccinated people don’t carry the virus.”

This was a completely unscientific fabrication to try and get as many people as possible to take the jabs, and to rationalize immoral mandates.

“Debt monetization or monetary financing is the practice of a government borrowing money from the central bank to finance public spending instead of selling bonds to private investors or raising taxes.” “It is prohibited in many countries, because it is considered dangerous due to the risk of creating runaway inflation. To prevent inflation getting out of hand, central banks often keep a close eye on the Consumer Price Index.”

(1/7) I fully support the right of the people of Ukraine to self determination. However there are many reasons I could not vote for the seven page Resolution that passed the House of Representatives today. (2/7) The resolution contains an open ended call for additional and immediate “defensive security assistance.” This term is so broad that it could include American boots on the ground or, as some of my colleagues have already requested, US enforcement of a no-fly zone.

Here are the reasons I voted NO on the Anti-lynching Act last Congress and why I voted NO tonight:

(1) The Constitution specifies only a handful of federal crimes, and leaves the rest to individual states to prosecute. (2) This bill expands current federal “hate crime” laws. A crime is a crime, and all victims deserve equal justice. Adding enhanced penalties for “hate” tends to endanger other liberties such as freedom of speech.

Thread.

The Biden administration is over the target. Four companies control the majority of meat processed in the United States. This quad-opoly of corporate middlemen have driven up prices in stores while depressing prices paid to struggling farmers.
tinyurl.com/5bxm87km We all agree: the solution is to promote competition.

Biden advisors recommend antitrust lawsuits against the big packers and subsidies for the little guys.

There’s a better answer though that’s free: Roll back crippling regulations on the little guys and they will flourish.

I came down with cold-like symptoms 36 hours ago. Runny nose, scratchy throat. Out of an abundance of caution I took a COVID-19 test this morning. Looks like common colds and allergies are still a thing. COVID-19 test result was negative. I’m approaching the 2 year anniversary of when I believe I had SARS-CoV2 (January 4, 2020), confirmed by flu/strep-like symptoms that week and a positive (quantitative, titer=960) antibody test July 2020. In November of 2020, I took another antibody test which came back negative.

This study correlates levels of vaccine induced antibodies with levels of protection against infection.

With a caveat that this study relied exclusively on the AstraZeneca vaccine, the results may be of interest for at least two of reasons…

nature.com/articles/s4159… 1st: Perhaps you took 2 shots and now you’re being told you need a booster, but you decide to get a quantitative antibody test first to see if you have antibodies. The results of this study might suggest what degree of protection your existing antibody levels already indicate.

There is no ethical or rational basis for mandating a vaccine that doesn’t reliably prevent recipients from spreading a disease to others. If a drug improves outcomes for individuals when individuals contract a disease, only those individuals, or legal guardians of those individuals, can make the decision to use that drug, especially if there is risk.

Politicians and bureaucrats are not legal guardians of citizens.

What do “road kill” and a CDC sponsored COVID paper have in common? By the third day, they’re so picked apart they’re unrecognizable.

This @CDCDirector is shameless for fabricating junk science with findings that stand in stark contrast to every credible academic study. CDC uses this paper to make the absurd, never before claimed, and already unproven assertion, that the vaccine is 5x more effective than natural immunity at preventing people from testing positive for COVID.

Testing! Not symptoms, death, or hospitalization… testing!

Quack CDC report admits it’s a quack report. Why does anyone still cite this?

“The findings in this report are subject to at least five limitations. First, reinfection was not confirmed through whole genome sequencing, which would be necessary to definitively prove…” “Second, persons who have been vaccinated are possibly less likely to get tested. Therefore, the association of reinfec- tion and lack of vaccination might be overestimated.”

While they’re in the majority, Democrats will pass many harmful things.

When we regain the majority, Republicans will say we can’t undo these things because there’s a Democrat in the White House and we don’t have 60 votes in the Senate. But Republicans will control the budget. Spending originates in the House, not in the White House. And it takes 60 votes in the Senate to fund any aspect of government.

Think about it:

To fund the bad things Democrats passed will require 218 in the House and 60 in the Senate.
