Last week while watching "Tucker Carson Tonight," the story of Alex Berenson caught my attention. If you would like to watch the segment for yourself, here is a link: https://rumble.com/v1nw38k-alex-berenson-powerful-people-wanted-to-suppress-berenson-says-dr.-scott-go.html
Alex Berenson is a former New York Times Journalist who was censored and banned by Twitter for asking questions about the COVID vaccination. He recently sued Twitter and won. Now information from his lawsuit against Twitter is coming to light.
During his interview with Tucker, he mentioned Dr. Scott Gottlieb. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a high-up executive director at Pfizer, demanded that Twitter censor the journalist for spreading misinformation about the COVID vaccine. He even accused Mr. Berenson's reporting as to why Dr. Anthony Fauci needed a security detail.
I knew I had heard the name Dr. Scott Gottlieb before in some other context. I remembered Dr. Scott Gottlieb from Pfizer was on Maryland Governor Larry Hogan's COVID task force and served on the Governor's COVID Roadmap to Recovery panel. Governor Hogan even called him out in his 2021 "follow the science" State of the State speech I attended.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb even went so far as to write a Wall Street Journal op-ed, pointing to states like Maryland as "laboratories for COVID control" that the incoming Biden administration can seek to emulate.
Now information has surfaced that indicates that in August of 2021, Dr. Scott Gottlieb demanded Twitter censor Alex Berenson to prevent him from releasing information about the mRNA vaccine's efficacy and failure to prevent transmission of COVID.
This news comes on the heels of last week's bombshell when Pfizer Executive Janine Small, testifying in front of the European Parliament, said that the vaccines were never tested on transmission prevention.
I believe this is a big story, with a Maryland angle, because it likely means our Top Adviser to Governor Hogan, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, knew he was misleading us from the beginning. The logic behind "you take the shot to help others" was a lie. The entire basis for requiring a Vaccine Passport was centered on the ability of the COVID vaccine to prevent transmission, which turns out to be a lie.
I am happy our local community college CSM finally agreed to drop its vaccine mandate in August. Unfortunately, the Vaccine Passport is still mandated at the University of Maryland and all University System of Maryland (USM) campuses. As of today, to attend a Maryland University, students are still required not only to be COVID vaccinated but also to have the updated required boosters.
The current mandated COVID passport to attend Maryland Universities is senseless.Delegate Lauren Arikan and I are drafting a letter today to Chancellor Dr. Perman to request that the smart people at our Universities "follow the damn science" and drop the COVID passport requirement for students.
