Rand Paul Takes A Victory Lap Around Democrats

The Republican senator took a victory lap in an interview with Fox News following the end of the mask mandate on aircraft.  also argued that masks were never effective in the first place, citing data that backed up his claim.

“If you look at the medical studies on masks, what you find is they don’t work. Randomized, controlled studies in Denmark, thousands of people wore masks, thousands of people didn’t, no difference in the incidence of the disease,” Paul said. “Florida, same thing. Half the school districts wore masks, half didn’t. No difference in incidence.”

U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled against mask mandates, citing that the CDC did not have the authority to enforce the mandates.

Paul agreed.

“There is no statute that gave the CDC authority. CDC is an agency of government and they have certain powers, but the only powers they have we give them,” he said. “If you look at the statute that enabled the CDC, it says nothing about mandating masks for anyone. So the power was never given to them. Congress is the same way. The Constitution has enumerated powers and the Tenth Amendment says those powers not given explicitly to Congress are reserved for the states and the people. So there’s nothing in the Constitution giving them the police power to mandate masks. Local officials could pass it, but it would have to be a law.”

“It sounds like a minor point but it’s a big point who creates laws,” Paul continued. “You can get rid of your elected officials. How do we get rid of the head of the CDC? They’re unresponsive, unelected bureaucrats.”

Paul has been very outspoken about the CDC overreach of power and a particularly hard critic of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“In our country, a public health official should give you a recommendation,” he said. “They can give you a recommendation on a mask, but they shouldn’t mandate it.”

Asked how being forced to wear a mask is different from being forced to remove one’s shoes to go through airport security, Paul said that “we’ve had so many freedoms taken away from us,” but that “I think covering the faces has probably been more of an affront to our sensibilities and our freedom than almost anything else that we have to go through.”

The Federalist Society outlined Mizelle’s legal career and accomplishments, below:

“The Honorable Kathryn Kimball Mizelle is a United States district judge for the Middle District of Florida. She was nominated in September 2020 by President Donald Trump and was confirmed by the Senate later that year. Prior to her confirmation, Judge Mizelle was in private practice at Jones Day, where she focused on complex civil and criminal litigation and appeals.

Judge Mizelle previously served at the Department of Justice as Counsel to the Associate Attorney General, as a Trial Attorney in the Tax Division, and as a Special Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Judge Mizelle also serves as an adjunct professor of law at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Upon graduation from law school, Judge Mizelle served as a law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas of the United States Supreme Court, Judge Gregory G. Katsas of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Chief Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and Judge James S. Moody Jr. of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. Judge Mizelle earned her B.A., summa cum laude, from Covenant College, and her J.D., summa cum laude, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law.”
