    Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Thomas Massie support D.C bar “closed” for not introducing vaccine passports

    The two libertarian politicians turned up at Big Board in D.C.
    By Ken Macon



    Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Thomas Massie have made a statement in support of civil liberties and against the use of domestic vaccine passports by turning up at Big Board in Washington D.C.

    Big Board is a bar and restaurant that had its liquor license revoked and was then ordered to shut down by the state after it refused to implement a divisive vaccine passport system.



    Senate Paul, along with his aides, visited on Tuesday evening, not long after the state put a closure notice on the door.

    “I’m proud of the owner for not submitting,” Paul said.

    Congressman Massie praised the owner Eric Flannery for pushing back against the affront to civil liberties.

    “I’m just a little old bar owner,” Flannery said. “I’ve been down here for ten years and I love everybody who comes.”

    Flannery pushed back against having staff check medical passports at the door. “The government doesn’t send me a paycheck…I am not an agent of the government to do this,” Flannery said in a video from The Daily Signal. “If they want to come down and check people’s medical status, they’re more than welcome to.”

    Flannery has been one of the most vocal opponents of vaccine passports in the D.C area.

    Speaking to The Daily Signal, Senator Paul said, “If you came to me and you said you’re going to take my liberty ‘but I’m going to keep you from dying and I’m gonna keep you from the plague’ you might have an argument. You’d still be wrong.”

    Senator Paul said that people can make their own decisions, adding, “Don’t go to the restaurant. If it’s really deadly, stay home.”

    Rand Paul, Thomas Massie Dine at Restaurant Shut Down for Ignoring COVID-19 Mandates

    Rand Paul, Thomas Massie Dine at Restaurant Shut Down for Ignoring COVID-19 Mandates
    By ROBBY SOAVE | 2.1.2022

    Sen. Rand Paul (R–Ky.) made an appearance at Big Board, a bar in the H Street neighborhood of Washington D.C., after the city revoked its liquor license and then shut it down for refusing to enforce COVID-19 mask and vaccine mandates. Paul and his staff visited the restaurant on Tuesday night, shortly after D.C. Health posted a closure notice on its front door.

    "I'm proud of the owner for not submitting," says Paul.

    Rep. Thomas Massie (R–Ky.) attended as well. Both thanked the owner, Eric Flannery, for protesting the idea that the government could force restaurant servers to inspect customers' medical records.

    "I'm just a little old bar owner," says Flannery, reciting the names of his regular customers. "I've been down here for ten years, and I love everybody who comes."

    The Big Board followed all the city's COVID-19 requirements from the outset, but at this point in the pandemic, the mandates are an infringement on his restaurant's welcoming ethos, says Flannery. He is particularly passionate about allowing his staff to forego masks.

    "My servers are not lesser people," he says. "They don't need to be masked. They don't carry disease."

    If checking vaccine cards was so critically important, the city could send agents to do that, he says.

    "I don't have the people for that," he says. "I just know that I'm doing the right thing and this place is supposed to be open."

    The Big Board is far from the only D.C. establishment to decline to follow the city's masking and vaccination requirements, but it is the first to do so vocally. Flannery made his stance clear on Twitter, and reiterated it during a recent Fox News appearance, which provoked the government's ire. (Disclosure: I donated to the Big Board's GoFundMe.)

    The Big Board served burgers, fries, and water—no booze, alas, in light of the liquor license suspension—to the lawmakers and their staffs.

    After recently recovering from Omicron, or possibly just the cold, I can attest to how severely deadly it is.

    With every sneeze, I could feel my body getting weaker. And every cough, a step closer towards the pearly gates.

    It's a miracle that I survived at all.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    title sounded almost like it could be a negative thing but it sounds like the owner may have initiated the invite or coordinated somehow anyway
