Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has vowed to expose the “Covid cover-up” while promising to “subpoena every last document of Dr. Fauci.”
Paul made the promise to his supporters after winning a decisive victory in Kentucky to secure his third term as a U.S. senator.
The senator vowed to follow through on his campaign pledge to force Anthony Fauci, Democrat President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor, into court.
During his victory speech, Paul told supporters that he intends to focus on uncovering the evidence for COVID-19 emerging from a lab.
He asserted that the American people deserve to know whether the virus was manufactured in a lab using taxpayer money via funding from Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
“Thanks for coming out to Dr. Fauci’s retirement party!” Paul joked.
“I promise you this: the Covid cover-up will end,” the senator urged
“I will not only hold Dr. Fauci accountable, we will finally investigate why your tax dollars were sent to fund dangerous research in Wuhan.”
In a broader message during the speech, Paul focused on freedom, declaring that “Liberty should bring people together because each and every citizen is left alone to enjoy their own personal freedoms.”
“Liberty is that great harmonizer that allows us to live together despite our differences,” Paul proclaimed.
“We don’t come together to rejoice in the dissipation of power.
“We come together to reaffirm our support for the 10th Amendment — that powers not explicitly granted to the federal government are retained by the states and the people.”
“We come together under the belief that government is instituted among men and women to preserve our God-given liberty — period!
“Our desire is not to rule over others but to largely leave people alone,” Paul continued.
“It is this system of constitutional checks on power that has allowed America to become the free-est nation ever known.”
“With freedom has come great prosperity.
“But we do not choose freedom because it makes us rich,” Paul said.
“We choose freedom because it is part of our very nature.
“Liberty, or the absence of government intrusion, should allow people of widely differing beliefs to live together, each according to their own beliefs,” Paul further urged.
“To preserve this liberty, we must especially defend the freedoms our Founding Fathers chose to put first in the Bill of Rights: the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom to associate with whomever you choose.”
Paul also called for an end to censorship.
“While the First Amendment does not prohibit private censorship, our founders certainly prized free speech,” the senator noted.
“One can only imagine our founder’s reaction to see government actively engaged with private enterprise to censor speech.
“To protect free speech, Congress must, absolutely must, prohibit government’s collusion with Big Tech,” he declared.
“The greatest originator of misinformation, the government, cannot be the arbiter of truth.”
“Both Left and Right need to wake up and acknowledge that government — should never be allowed to create any entity that even resembles a Ministry of Truth,” Paul warned.
