So you’ll remember that last week we took a look at the most egregiously dishonest and moronic parts of President Biden’s speech to the nation when he announced vaccine mandates for businesses with over 100 employees. In case you missed it, you should go back and read it. But here’s the gist:
“…vaccines provide STRONG PROTECTION for the vaccinated… I want to emphasize that the vaccines provide VERY STRONG PROTECTION from Covid-19…the WORLD’S LEADING SCIENTISTS CONFIRM that if you’re fully vaccinated, your risk of severe illness from Covid-19 is VERY LOW… THESE ARE FACTS… the SCIENCE MAKES CLEAR, if you’re fully vaccinated, you’re HIGHLY PROTECTED from severe illness even if you get Covid-19… YOU’RE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE…”
And then: “THE BOTTOM LINE: WE’RE GOING TO PROTECT VACCINATED WORKERS FROM UNVACCINATED CO-WORKERS.”
OK, no commentary needed. If that makes sense to you, you’re a better man than me. Let’s move on to some other nonsense from the most popular President in US history.
“We’re in the tough stretch, and it could last FOR A WHILE.” How many times have we been told “the next 6 to 12 weeks will be the worst” or some other such nonsense. According to some, this “pandemic” will NEVER END, and they seem to be just fine with that. We HAVE to get used to the idea that this coronavirus is now endemic to this world. We went from 15 days to “flatten the curve” (which we’ve never done by the way), not to save lives as you remember, but to “save” the hospitals from being overrun, to now living in never-ending terror of what “might” happen. I won’t get into the numbers again to show this pandemic is NOTHING NEAR what it’s been made out to be, but it’s time to get over it and move on. If you’re looking for a planet where nobody ever gets sick and no one ever dies; a place with zero risk to the human experience, you’re in the wrong place.
“The fourth piece of my plan is INCREASING TESTING AND MASKING. From the start, America has FAILED TO DO ENOUGH Covid-19 testing…In addition to testing, we know masking helps stop the spread of Covid-19.” Right now we’ve done a little over six hundred million tests – almost two tests for every man, woman, and child in America. We’ve done the most testing in the world. Second to us is India with about five hundred fifty million tests but India has almost five times more people than us. After India, no nation is even close. Exactly how much testing do we need to do? Although to be fair, there are other countries with much higher tests per million population than we have done, but that just makes them crazier than we are, and there is no real correlation between more testing and less deaths. And I have shown you at least half a dozen times. there is no legitimate science on the planet ever that shows any significant efficacy of masks in reducing transmission of respiratory virus. Enough with the stupid masks.
“The unvaccinated overcrowd our hospitals or overrun the emergency rooms and intensive care units, LEAVING NO ROOM for someone with a heart attack or pancreatitis or cancer." I will post a piece this week (based on actual data) debunking this myth that the hospitals are “overrun” because of COVID cases. This is another PANIC PORN theme we’ve heard time and again. But I am not aware of one hospital in the US that has collapsed under the weight of COVID cases, even this past winter when case rates were as much as 50% higher than they are now and before we had vaccines available. There was this one story making headlines throughout the mainstream media telling of a man I think in Georgia who couldn't find a cardiac ICU bed who subsequently died. Even if that story is true, that's one person. Although it does appear to be true that many people actually DID die at home or went untreated last year because they were scared away from the hospitals and therefore didn’t seek care, so there’s that.
“My job as president is to protect ALL AMERICANS. So tonight, I’m announcing that the Department of Labor is developing an emergency rule to require all employers with 100 OR MORE EMPLOYEES that together employ over 80 million workers to ensure their work forces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week.” What EXACTLY is the SCIENCE that says 100 employees is so dangerous as to need vaccination mandates, but 99 employees is fine? There are millions and millions of Americans who work in small businesses of under 100 employees. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 98.1 percent of companies in the U.S. employ fewer than 100 people. If this thing is SO dangerous, then why not mandate EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE get vaccinated? I know many out there would love that, but please educate me. Is this the same science that says you must wear a mask unless you can’t then you don’t have to? Or the science that says Bob’s Five and Dime has to close but Target gets to stay open? Or the science that says walking only one way down a grocery store aisle saves lives? Or the science that says churches must close and even outdoor services are banned but liquor stores, pot shops, and strip clubs get to stay open? Or the science that says you can sit at a bar but not stand there? Or the science that says you can’t use the showers at the gym unless the gym has a pool? Or the science that informed Joe Biden that “250,000 more Americans” would die last December? Or the science that says you must wear a mask outside? Or the science that says you can’t sit on the beach? I guess it’s just the Anthony Fauci kind of science where we don’t get to see the actual data and we don’t even get to ask to see it.
“Last month, our TOP GOVERNMENT DOCTORS announced an initial plan for booster shots for vaccinated Americans...As soon as they are authorized, those ELIGIBLE will be able to get a booster right away at TENS OF THOUSANDS OF SITES across the country — for most Americans, at your NEARBY DRUGSTORE and FOR FREE… My message to unvaccinated Americans is this: What more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations FREE, SAFE, AND CONVENIENT…The Department of Labor will REQUIRE EMPLOYERS with 100 or more workers to give those workers PAID TIME OFF to get vaccinated. No one should lose pay in order to get vaccinated or take a loved one to get vaccinated.” First, notice the word “eligible”. This is a sales word. Like you may be “eligible” for a lower interest rate or you’re “eligible” to apply for a credit card – bullocks! How lucky for you that you're "eligible" to get vaxxed. No wait, FIRST try to figure the logic that says two shots didn't do it, but a third shot - now a third shot WILL do the trick - promise. The other day I noted that Canada had contracted for enough vaccines to inject every man, woman, and child in the country 10 TIMES. If you think this will be over after a third "booster", i got a bridge to sell you. And Biden just told us, repeatedly, how CONVENIENT he has made it to get vaxxed, so why are employers being forced to give people PAID time off? Most "NEARBY DRUGSTORES" are open from early in the morning to well into the evening; some are even open all night too.
“The third piece of my plan is keeping — and maybe the most important — is keeping our children safe and our schools open…The SAFEST THING for your child 12 and older is to get them vaccinated.” As I have reported to you before, the danger to a child ages 0-17 years old of having any kind of significant interaction with COVID is zero. As you can’t do better than zero, the vaccine (or masks or wishing on a star) can, by definition, be of no use and is certainly not the “SAFEST THING” as the long term effects of the vaccine are also, by definition, unknowable. ANYONE who tells you differently (unless they have a time machine) is absolutely lying.
“Children have a FOUR TIMES HIGHER chance of getting hospitalized if they live in a state with low vaccination rates rather than states with high vaccination rates.” This may be the quintessential example of what I’m talking about when I suggest you listen to what you’re being told. First, I’d like to see that data. Second, how exactly are you defining “low” or “high”? They just throw this “statistic” out there, you hear it, you internalize it, and now you “know” kids are at a four times higher blah, blah, blah. And even if this math is somehow accurate (howeverthehell you calculate it), four times zero is still zero. Again, I'll be writing about the perhaps not-so-accurate reporting of hospitalizations and ICU usage later this week.
There’s more to expose, but now I’m just punching down. There pretty much wasn’t one honest, coherent thought in this whole speech. That is not an attack on Biden's cognitive abilities by the way. He didn’t write the speech. Whoever wrote it wrote the lies, Joe just read it. But as I have suggested before, just listen to what you’re being told and think “does that make sense?” You will find if you start to listen and watch with more critical ears and eyes that, say it with me: We are being lied to every day. All the time. By everybody. Well, except me. As stated previously, I am motivated by neither power nor money, and I am also neither hysterical nor a liar. My only motivation is to try to restore some semblance of sanity back to a country largely gripped by a mass psychosis which is driven by idiots and liars. Stop listening to the idiots and liars – that would be your government “experts” and mainstream media talking heads. They do not have your best interests at heart.
