Rand Paul: Fauci, others preaching about masks isn't about science, it's about 'submission'

Paul: Fauci, feds using mask mandates as control mechanisms, not scientific recommendations

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., again blasts Fauci on ‘Fox News Primetime’ over mask ‘theater’

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul sounded off Monday on “Fox News Primetime”, saying that medical professionals like top Biden adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci want Americans to wear masks without questioning the State.

Cloth masks don’t work. The N95 masks work. You won’t see a doctor in a hospital going into a covid patient’s room with a cloth mask because they don’t want to get the disease.

Yet, half of the country is running around with Fauci wearing a bunch of cloth masks all over his face saying they work when in reality he knows they don’t work — it’s about civility, submission, it’s about having you do what you are told without thinking or questioning the state.

You know, as much as the left wants to completely different narrative, history is going to record that there was a miracle that occurred in getting this vaccine.

Indiana refutes reports it had agreement with Thad Matta to become Hoosiers men’s basketball coach

Indiana has refuted reports claiming it had an agreement with former Ohio State coach Thad Matta for its open men’s basketball coaching position that fell through due to medical concerns. 

Speaking with IndyStar, a person with knowledge of the situation denied the Matta reports on Monday. The person was granted anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation. The reports surfaced barely more than one week into the Hoosiers’ search for a replacement for Archie Miller.

Matta has been mentioned since the outset of the search as one of several candidates for the job, but it’s unclear whether he has spoken formally with Indiana about the position. 

Matta posted a 439-154 record (.740) during a 17-year coaching career, spread across Butler, Xavier and Ohio State.

Sidney Powell Says ‘No Reasonable Person’ Would Believe Her Election Fraud Lies

Former President Donald Trump’s former campaign lawyer Sidney Powell is apparently backtracking on her claims that voting machines were rigged in favor of now-President Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

After Trump’s loss, Powell repeatedly argued that Dominion Voting Systems machines were manipulated to weigh votes for Biden more heavily than those for Trump, but she never provided any evidence to support the dubious accusation.

Now that Dominion has filed a massive defamation lawsuit against her, Powell is claiming that “no reasonable person” should have taken her prior claims seriously.

Powell moved to dismiss the lawsuit on Monday, arguing that “no reasonable person would conclude” that her accusations of Dominion being part of an election-rigging scheme with ties to Venezuela “were truly statements of fact.”

Considering that Powell’s previous assertions of election fraud helped inspire the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, many Twitter users elected to condemn her actions.

One person couldn’t help but imagine how this would play in court.

Creighton headed to Sweet 16 for the first time since 1974 after beating Ohio in men’s NCAA Tournament

INDIANAPOLIS — Creighton is in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1974. Did it the hard way, too.

The Bluejays won consecutive games in the men's NCAA Tournament for the first time ever Monday, beating 13th-seeded Ohio 72-58. In Creighton’s previous four trips to the Sweet 16, it was the second round of the 25-team tournament, requiring only one win to get there. The tournament was expanded to 64 teams in 1985.

Creighton faces Gonzaga, the overall No. 1 seed, next weekend.

This is Creighton’s 22nd appearance in the NCAA Tournament, and it has won its first game 10 times. But as a mid-major, it usually has the bad luck to run into one of the top seeds in the second round. Not this time. Ohio upset fourth-seeded Virginia on Saturday, giving the Bluejays an opening.
