So here’s another tidbit from President Biden’s vaccine mandate speech from last month. I know this is yesterday’s news but these statements, and more importantly the conveyance of what people will “know” after hearing this pablum, is really important to take note of. As always caps mine for emphasis.
“We’ve made SO MUCH PROGRESS during the past seven months of this pandemic. The RECENT INCREASES in vaccinations in August ALREADY ARE HAVING AN IMPACT in some states, where case counts are dropping in recent days…”
As to the implication that the “RECENT INCREASES” in vaccinations “ALREADY ARE HAVING AN IMPACT”, I just posted a piece entitled “WHAT (EXACTLY) THE HELL HAPPENED IN FLORIDA?” showing you clearly with, you know, math, that vaccines had nothing to do with the decline in cases in southern states.
And as to the “SO MUCH PROGRESS”:
On January 20, 2021 (almost exactly one year into the pandemic) we had 25,156,299 million cases. That’s an average of about 2.1 million cases a month, and we averaged 35,764 deaths a month. In the eight months since Joe Biden took office (to September 20, 2021), we added 17,985,909 more cases, which is an average of about 2.25 million cases a month with 33,714 deaths per month. By the way, in case you think you "know" (as Biden has told you) that he "inherited a broken system" and therefore the numbers under Biden are skewed toward being worse when he first took office and have, in fact, been "progressing" for the better as his stewardship (and vaccine rates) has continued, over the last two months (8/1 - 10/1) we have averaged about 4.25 million cases (almost twice as many as the eight-month average under Biden) and 44,000 deaths (about 30% more)! Is that “progress”? And that’s starting with an immune-naïve population with no vaccinations throughout the entire first year to January 20th 2021, to now with more than a 50% vaccination coverage nationally. So why isn’t anyone asking Joe where EXACTLY all this “progress” is?
A picture is worth 1,000 words:
Back on September 9, 2020 there were about 29,000 Americans in the hospital with COVID. One year later on September 9, 2021 (the day of Joe's speech), there were about 96,000 Americans in the hospital with COVID. Is THAT the progress about which he speaks?
Now let me be clear, I am not saying Biden has necessarily done anything wrong (except lie to us). I have been telling you since April of 2020 that the idea that we can somehow “control” this virus is both arrogant and foolhardy, so I’m not condemning anyone for the lack of “control” of the virus (except maybe for not pushing for people to actually get healthier with the same fervor with which we’ve been pushed to hide under our beds and demonize our neighbors), but my point as usual is to get people to actually listen to what we’re being told with a more critical ear. It's usually a lie.Then there’s this one:
“We’re proud to have DONATED nearly 140 million vaccines to over 90 countries, more than all other countries combined…We’ve also now started to ship another 500 million Covid (sic) vaccines, PFIZER VACCINES, PURCHASED to donate to 100 lower-income countries in need of vaccines, and I’ll be announcing additional steps to help the rest of the world later this month.” First of all, who cares? Sure it’s good to “help” the poor, but what does this have to do with implementing vaccine mandates here (which was the point of the speech)? Second, as I have asked before, if this coronavirus thing is SO dangerous, why are we “purchasing” vaccine from Pfizer to give to poor countries? Or “purchasing” for ourselves for that matter? Pfizer already reported nearly 10.5 BILLION DOLLARS in NET INCOME in the first half of 2021 with 11.3 BILLION DOLLARS in total revenue from the COVID vaccine alone. If this thing is the world-ender it’s been made out to be, why isn’t Pfizer GIVING vaccine to poor countries? Why are we buying it from them to give to poor countries? Why isn’t it Pfizer’s “patriotic duty” (remember when Joe told us that was a thing for wearing masks?) to give it to Americans? This thing is SO CALAMITOUS that I can be forced to take a medication I don’t want to take, or face losing my livelihood and my ability to feed my children, but a company that has already made BILLIONS of dollars off the vaccine can’t be forced to give it away (even just at cost) to SAVE THE WORLD?? Can you say “follow the money”?
So the bottom line is, say it with me, we are being lied to every day, all the time. We have, in fact, made NO progress (by the actual numbers) against the evil coronavirus, and while the vax may keep you out of the hospital (although as I have shown you in previous posts, that doesn’t appear to be the case in other countries), it’s not doing much to slow the spread. And it is the spread of the virus, or more directly, the fear of the spread, that is keeping our country paralyzed. But your actual chances of being significantly affected by COVID (by the actual data) is vanishingly small; vaxxed or not.
Stop listening to the “experts” and talking heads. They are all liars and idiots. They haven’t been right once on anything to do with this pandemic. Not once. And they do not have your best interests at heart. Start breaking out of your PANIC PORN prison today by eating better, exercising more, sleeping better, socializing more, and start living life without fear.
