Senator Rand Paul goes head-to-head with Anthony Fauci over COVID-19 vaccines

(Natural News) Senator Rand Paul interrogated Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday, September 14, regarding his promotion of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines for all Americans, regardless of whether or not they have already obtained natural immunity from a previous infection.

Paul played a video of Fauci from back in 2004 at a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing, where he confirmed that natural immunity has the same effect as a vaccination, which means that those who have been previously infected with a virus would no longer need to receive an additional vaccine.

In the video Paul presented, Fauci was asked whether someone who got the flu should still get the flu shot, to which he responded no. Those who have gotten the flu are as protected as anybody can be because “the best vaccination is to get infected yourself,” Fauci said at the time.

After playing the clip, Paul asked Fauci why he has chosen to ignore the effectiveness of natural immunity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve had ever-evolving opinions from you, Dr. Fauci,” Paul pointed out. “Currently, antibody surveys show that 80 percent of children – approximately 80 percent of children – have had COVID, and yet there are no guidelines coming from you or anybody in the government to take into account their naturally-acquired immunity.”

“You seem quite certain of yourself in 2004, but in 2022 there’s a lot less certainty. So when we look at this, we wonder why you seem to really embrace basic immunology back in 2004 and how you, or why you, seem to reject it now,” he continued.


Fauci struggled to find the words to defend his choices or his change of opinion, and instead, insisted that the vaccination following the infection gives an added, extra boost.

He also tried to claim that there wasn’t enough context in the 2004 video clip – the woman who called in for advice about getting the flu shot previously explained that she had an adverse reaction to one. While this could explain Fauci’s recommendation against getting the flu vaccine, this does not explain his promotion of the benefits of natural immunity at the time.

“When you’re trying to tell us that kids need a third or a fourth vaccine, are you including the variability or the variable of the previous infection in the studies? No, you’re not,” Paul shot back.

“You can give kids hundreds of jabs and they’ll make antibodies every time, but that does not prove efficacy. Almost none of your studies, from the CDC or from the government, have the variable of whether or not you’ve been previously infected,” the senator went on.

Paul vows to hold Fauci, others responsible

After grilling Fauci about his stance on the vaccines, the senator also lambasted him for failing to be transparent about royalties that he or others in the public health sector may or may not have received from health companies.

“We’ve been asking you, and you refuse to answer whether anybody on the vaccine committees gets royalties from the pharmaceutical companies. I asked you last time, and what was your response? ‘We don’t have to tell you,’” Paul said.

Fauci previously said federal regulations do not require individuals to divulge royalties under the Bayh-Dole act, but publicly disclosed some of the royalties he received during the hearing anyway.

Paul then explained that he sought information via the Freedom of Information Act about possible payments to Fauci and others received from companies, but was unsuccessful in this endeavor.

Instead, he dropped a warning that Republicans would get to the bottom of any possible conflicts of interest if they get the chance to retake control of Congress. (Related: Sen. Rand Paul: Dr. Fauci should testify under oath about money given to Wuhan lab.)

“I’ll tell you this: When we get in charge, we’re going to change the rules, and you will have to divulge where you get your royalties from, from what companies, and if anybody on the committee has a conflict of interest. We’re going to learn about it. I promise you that,” he told Fauci.

New Lancet report suggests coronavirus may have leaked from US lab

Image: New Lancet report suggests coronavirus may have leaked from US lab

(Natural News) A new report published in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet suggests that it is “feasible” that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) actually originated from a lab in the United States.

The paper, published on Wednesday, Sept. 14, has caused an uproar, most of which has been directed at economist Jeffrey Sachs, who was involved in research for the publication. Sachs has stated on multiple occasions that he is certain the coronavirus came from an American lab. (Related: The Lancet suddenly switches sides, admits COVID lab leak theory deserves “transparent debate.”)

At a conference in Madrid earlier this year, he said there is enough evidence to investigate the U.S., but nobody is doing so. He added that U.S. officials may be preventing these kinds of investigations because they “don’t want to look under the rug too much.”

During a podcast interview with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Sachs said he was “pretty convinced” that SARS-CoV-2 “came out of a U.S. lab of biotechnology, not out of nature.”

When approached by mainstream publications for comment, Sachs said he stands by the report’s conclusions, adding that he personally “oversaw this part of the work” on the emergence of SARS-CoV-2.

“Everybody has signed off on the final text,” he said. “The question of a possible laboratory release mostly involves the question of U.S.-China joint work that was underway on SARS-like viruses.”

A spokesperson for The Lancet also defended the report and its collaboration with Sachs. He said the medical journal “regularly evaluated the work of each Task Force as scientific evidence about COVID-19 evolved, to ensure that the final peer-reviewed report will provide valuable new insights to support a coordinated, global response to COVID-19 as well as to prevent future pandemic and contain future disease outbreaks.”


Investigations need to be conducted in US labs

The 58-page report published in The Lancet does not discount the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 has a natural origin.

“Most epidemics in history have involved the passage of a pathogen from an animal host to humans, followed by human-to-human transmission,” the report stated.

But the report noted there is very strong evidence that the coronavirus came from a laboratory accident. It recommended the introduction of more safeguards in biological laboratories to reduce the risk of either eventuality leading to bigger outbreaks.

The report is the result of over two years of work investigating the origins of the coronavirus. It suggested that American researchers could be culpable and could have deeper connections with similar biolabs in China, specifically the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

The report has not ruled out the possibility that a leak in the WIV caused the pandemic, but The Lancet report noted that “independent researchers have not yet investigated” biological laboratories in the U.S., and that the National Institutes of Health has resisted all attempts by investigators to disclose details regarding its work.

The Lancet commission that researched the origin of the coronavirus made other recommendations. These include stronger regulation of the wild animal trade, the creation of a new World Health Organization-led biosecurity oversight authority, better international coordination in the face of large infectious disease outbreaks and a new $60 billion a year Global Health Fund to support health systems and pandemic preparedness programs in lower-income countries.

August food inflation jumped by 11.4%, but experts warn the worst is yet to come

Image: August food inflation jumped by 11.4%, but experts warn the worst is yet to come

(Natural News) The latest inflation report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that food prices once again rose by 11.4 percent year-over-year, and food inflation is now at its highest point since 1979.

The Consumer Price Index report for August showed that prices on all items in the United States rose by 8.3 percent from Aug. 2021 to Aug. 2022. The food-at-home index, a measure of price changes at the grocery store, increased by 13.5 percent, which is also a 43-year high. Compared to July, the food index rose by 0.8 percent, and the food-at-home index rose by 0.7 percent.

Among food items, eggs posted the highest annual price increase at 39.8 percent. Margarine came next at a 38.4 percent rise, followed by butter with a 24.6 percent higher price. Flour and prepared mixes rose by 23.3 percent, and roasted coffee rose by 18.7 percent. (Related: Food shortage simulation predicts 400% SURGE in food prices by 2030.)

Other food products that also posted very high price increases include frozen bakery products like pies and tarts (18.1 percent), fresh and frozen chicken parts (17.8 percent), crackers, (17.7 percent), cereals and cereal products (17.4 percent), canned fruits and vegetables (16.6 percent), white bread (16.4 percent) and rice, pasta and cornmeal (15.7 percent).

Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at, noted that consumers have been cutting back on spending in the face of higher prices – but this kind of thriftiness isn’t always doable for food.

“Food, at its basic level, is not discretionary,” said Hamrick. “That’s the challenging aspect of the circumstances we are in.”


“Consumers are prepared for high prices to persist in the foreseeable future, but there’s also a tendency for people to think that things might return to normal,” he added. “It’s belt-tightening time and has been for a while.”

Food inflation is yet to reach its peak

Scott Brave, lead consumer spending economist at market research company Morning Consult, told Market Watch that food inflation has yet to reach its peak.

“The longer that goes on, the higher it gets, the more difficult it becomes for lower-income individuals in particular to afford those price increases,” said Brave.

Financial experts like Brave noted that lower-income families are feeling the worst impact of uncontrolled inflation as a higher proportion of their disposable income goes to things that have also seen record-high increases such as food, but also gas and utilities.

Brave acknowledged that gas prices per gallon have fallen from a peak of over $5 in June to around $3.69 in September, but whatever benefit lower-income households may have felt from this decline was soaked up by the rise in food prices.

A survey by LendingTree, an online lending marketplace, noted that around two-thirds of Americans recently reported being worried about not being able to afford groceries at least once in the past month. People from the millennial and zoomer generations were among those most concerned about the increase in food prices.

Households with young children and lower-income families also reported a high level of stress putting food on the table. Households that make less than $35,000 a year were the most anxious about inflation, with around 74 percent of them expressing concern about the affordability of groceries.

David Portalatin, food analyst at market research firm NPD Group, noted that inflation is likely going to make people think twice before going to a restaurant, where an average meal is around 3.5 times higher than eating the same meal sourced from a grocery store.

“The inflationary pressures are actually going to drive more consumers to the grocery store than restaurants,” even though grocery prices also rose at a higher rate than those in restaurants, noted Portalatin. “The grocery store is still way less expensive than a restaurant meal.”
