Ted Cruz Berates Biden Administration for Playing ‘Pandemic Politics’.
I predict the next 365-days will be filled with a great deal of backpedaling from the media, bureaucrats, and politicians on a number of different policies that have been pushed as “expert” pandemic guidance.
Of course, the moves are based on political calculations related to November and not for the public interest.
The reversal in course has already started in earnest with COVID pandemic policies. To begin with, few media outlets have promoted the fear of COVID more than MSNBC. Now one of its hosts is agreeing with my assertion that the virus cannot be contained and we must learn to live with it.
.@chrislhayes on the weird reality for vaccinated folks amid omicron wave:
The risk went from something we hadn’t really dealt with before in our lifetimes, to something that looks more like the flu. The flu can still be dangerous—but we do not reorient our lives around the flu. pic.twitter.com/4K5qNOplpW

Granted, Hayes is saying the vaccinated (particularly the vaccinated and boosted) can view COVID like the flu. However, that is miles from the Black Plague protocol that has been embraced before.
Also appearing on MSNBC was godlet and Biden COVID advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci. During an interview, he made an admission that many of us have known for some time: Those who are hospitalized or die with COVID do not necessarily do so because of the disease.
‘If a child goes into the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID and they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual, when, in fact, they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that.
"We're trying to prevent people from getting sick." Dr. Fauci notes that even though case numbers can be a useful predictor, when illness from the virus is less severe (as appears to be the case with Omicron), hospitalizations becomes a more important metric than infections. pic.twitter.com/UBp4gnLp1P

After his admission, Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasted the Biden administration for playing ‘pandemic politics‘:
It means some children are some are testing positive while in the hospital for something else, resulting in the hospitalization figures being elevated.
Cruz responded with a tweet saying: ‘Now Fauci says this? Is this because pandemic politics have changed for the Biden admin?’
COVID policies will certainly give Cruz and other Republicans a great deal of fodder for 2022 and 2024.
Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Rochelle Walensky is explaining that the PCR-tests are too sensitive and someone could test positive for COVID, even if they weren’t infectious.
The CDC director said that PCR tests are too sensitive and could return a positive even after someone is no longer contagious, and that rapid antigen tests could be unreliable in later stages of infection.
‘We know it performs really well during that period where you’re initially infected, but the FDA has not at all looked at whether … your positive antigen really does correlate with whether you’re transmissible or not,’ she told CBS Mornings.
Walensky explained that even if someone tests negative with an antigen test after five days of isolation, the CDC would still urge them to wear a mask to prevent possible spread.
I am looking forward to reporting on even more reversals to COVID policies, which will bring the establishment media, bureaucrats, and politicians in line with my projections and recommendations . . . made in March 2020.DONATE
