Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw made the bold case Thursday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance can no longer be trusted, meaning the American people “shouldn’t comply” with their diktats any longer.
Speaking on “Fox News Primetime,” he said that the CDC’s new recommendation that vaccinated Americans begin masking indoors again contradicts the science that’s been laid out by the Food and Drug Administration.
“Look, the vaccines are actually effective. I actually believe the FDA’s data on this. Not only are they effective, but the FDA still stands by their assertion and their assessment of the data that says that the vaccines here in the United States are effective against transmission including the delta variant,” he said.
“So the CDC is in direct confrontation with the FDA. I believe the FDA on this one. I think they tend to be more risk-averse, and so they tend to get the science a little bit more right, more often. And I think the CDC has been politicized in this case, I think, from pressure from the administration,” he added.
Indeed, even notoriously left-wing networks like CNN have raised concerns about the nonsensical nature of the CDC’s recent decisions:
When even authority-revering CNN is starting to notice and say that the CDC’s manic shifts in guidance don’t seem to make sense and should be questioned — or at least aren’t being communicated clearly — you know there’s a problem:https://t.co/rKH2s9qvnW

Continuing his remarks, Crenshaw added that because of the CDC’s poor decision-making and — worse — its blatant refusal to explain itself, Americans should no longer comply if the agency pushes for more mandates and lockdowns.
“I think Americans are really sick of this. They’re over it. They’re not gonna comply, and you shouldn’t comply with any more lockdowns, with any more mandates, none of it,” he said.

The remarks were made hours after White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre admitted to Fox News’ Peter Doocy that if the CDC recommends more lockdowns and school closures, the administration will comply.
“So if you’re listening to the science, if scientists come to you at some point down the line and say, ‘It is our opinion that there should be shutdowns and there should be school closures,’ you would do that?” Doocy had asked her.
“Well, we listen to — like I said, we listen to the CDC and the expert and their guidance. Our — you know, our — the CDC is a body that is very well respected. And we fol- — again, we follow their guidance,” Jean-Pierre had replied.
Responding to this stunning admission, Crenshaw posted a tweet that afternoon reiterating the same stance that he’d tout on Fox News later that evening.
If the CDC, Biden, or any local leader recommends another lockdown, don’t comply. Businesses. Schools. Restaurants. No one should comply. https://t.co/OP9K1cSJo6

“If the CDC, Biden, or any local leader recommends another lockdown, don’t comply. Businesses. Schools. Restaurants. No one should comply,” the tweet read.
While on Fox News later that evening, Crenshaw also took aim at the CDC for the non-peer-reviewed study it’d cited to justify its controversial decision to recommend that even vaccinated Americans begin masking up indoors again.
“That study, by the way, is assessing a vaccine that isn’t approved in the U.S. It’s assessing the AstraZeneca vaccine. We dug a little further and it turns out that that study was also rejected in peer review,” he said.
“They changed the status of rejection to ‘revised’ the day of the CDC’s announcement. So, this is extremely suspicious. So you’ve got a single study, not from our country, not with a vaccine that we even use,” he added.

The CDC has, for its part, claimed that it intends to issue more studies soon to justify its decision-making, but the Republican congressman doesn’t believe them.
“The CDC and the administration keeps saying they are going to come out with other studies. Well, behind closed doors they have told reporters they have no such data. They have no other studies at all. We have that on the record,” he said.
This is true.
Earlier in the week, an anonymous Biden administration official told Stat News that its so-called health “experts” don’t have studies/proof that fully vaccinated Americans are spreading the coronavirus and thus responsible for the current uptick.
“Rather, the official said, the updated guidance is based on studies showing that vaccinated people who contract the Delta variant have similarly high levels of virus in their airways, which suggested that they may be infectious to others. With other variants, vaccinated people had substantially lower levels of virus in their noses and throats compared to unvaccinated people,” according to Stat.
So why is the CDC claiming otherwise? Because of politics, Crenshaw suspects.
“This is clearly politically driven. And it gets to a deeper problem and a deeper divide amongst how we have confronted coronavirus. The left want you to be scared, they want you to be controlled, they want to spend more money and keep you locked down. There is no explanation,” he said.
And that’s why, according to a growing number of Americans, resistance — REAL resistance, not the phony “resistance” of the left — is vital.
If you want to stay free, Do Not Comply! Go Gandhi on the bastards. Non-violent resistance!
