A partial transcript follows. Tucker: Americans should never be forced to take medicine they don't want, period, Fox, July 27, 2021:

... strong regimes are a lot like strong people. They are self-confident and because they are, they're rational and moderate. They can afford to be those things. They have unquestioned legitimacy. Admitting honest mistakes does not threaten them. Why would it? They can tell the truth without fear.

Strong regimes are marked by cheerfulness and an open-minded spirit. You know them when you see them. They are easy to recognize. Weakness has the opposite effect.

Weak leaders live in terror. They lie constantly. They admit nothing. They rule by force because they have no choice, they have lost their legitimacy.

When they begin to lose control, as they inevitably do, they panic. Unable to acknowledge the magnitude of their failure, they retreat into delusion and their behavior becomes irrational. They start issuing bizarre commands....

So in that way, every collapsing regime is the same, and with that in mind, we learned today that in the face of the waning pandemic, the Biden administration will dramatically increase COVID restrictions across the country.

Millions of children will now be required to cover their faces in schools, this despite the scientifically established fact that masks pose a far greater threat to children than COVID does. So, strictly speaking as a scientific matter, this is lunacy.

But there's more.

According to an announcement by the C.D.C. this afternoon, the administration will force masks on adults as well, including people who've already been vaccinated. Pause to consider this for a moment. Americans were promised that if they took the vaccines, they could have their lives back. So by the millions they did that.

Now, they have learned in the clearest possible way that they were lied to. They got their shots, but the Biden administration has decided to continue to control what they wear, where they go, and who they talk to. Why are they doing that? What's happening here exactly?

Well, a rational person might conclude there must be something wrong with the vaccines. Maybe they don't work very well. But no, that's not it. The administration assures us that the vaccines work perfectly. They are miracle drugs. All right, so why the masks?

Peter Doocy of FOX News asked that question in the White House briefing today. Here's how the Biden administration's owned Baghdad Bob responded to him....

DOOCY: But the vaccines work, which this sign says that they do. Then why do people who have had the vaccine need to now wear masks the same as people who have not had it?

PSAKI: Because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination based on data that that is a way to make sure they are protected, their loved ones are protected, and that's an extra step given the transmissibility of the virus....

CARLSON: So the vaccines work, the only people getting sick are the unvaccinated, but the vaccinated still have to wear masks. Why is that? Well, you just heard the answer, quote: "Public health leaders in our administration have made the determination." In other words, because we said so.

That's the medical justification for suffocating your third grader with a paper mask forever. Public health leaders in the administration have made that determination....

But in fact, a moment this absurd cannot last for long. It's just too irrational.

The people making decisions are too discredited. They are too transparently unwise....

What you're watching is a decaying system based on presumed expertise finally reach its ugly end stage....


On Thursday, the President of the United States will announce that all Federal employees will be required to get the vaccine, regardless of whether or not they have active antibodies to COVID. That is not a small development. The Federal government is the largest workforce in the world. It employs close to three million people, so an awful lot of lives will be affected by this policy.

What's interesting is that back in December, which wasn't that long ago, Joe Biden assured us that nothing like this would ever happen....

We have long ago left the realm of public health. This is about politics and it's about social control. The Biden administration has decided it owns your body, and the media agree with that. If the rest of us allow that grotesque claim to go unchallenged, we are in deep trouble going forward....

American citizens should never be forced to take medicine they don't want. Period. Government should never require people to submit to any medical procedure whether that procedure is sterilization or frontal lobotomies or COVID vaccinations...


PEDRO GONZALEZ, ASSOCIATE EDITOR, "CHRONICLES" MAGAZINE: Right, well the vaccine is so important that we are allowing an unlimited number of unvaccinated people to enter the country illegally at the southern border and even having the military chauffeur them around.

The answer to your question is that this isn't about public safety, it's about control. The hysteric push for vaccinations has effectively enlarged the national security apparatus. Biden allies including the D.N.C. are pushing cell phone companies to work with them to quote, "dispel misinformation" about vaccines sent over social media and text messages.

In other words, the state becomes the arbiter of truth in public and private life. The ADL and PayPal recently announced a partnership to de- platform extremists. The ADL also considers vaccine criticism quote, "racist, extremist, anti-Semitic conspiracies," so you see where this is going....

COVID-19 vaccine profits have minted nine new pharma billionaires....

The G.O.P. is fixated right now on virtue signaling about totalitarianism in Cuba and abroad and seemingly uninterested with its creep at home and that has to change....
