Biden is Surrendering in His “War on Covid”

Biden is Surrendering in His “War on Covid”

White House Prepares Transition to “Non-Crisis” Phase of COVID-19 Pandemic.

Last August, I projected that based on our experiences with a coronavirus in the late 1800’s, we would be experiencing continued waves of covid infections that essentially would generate enough herd immunity that the pathogen would join the array of other seasonal respiratory viruses humans routinely contract.

No amount of masking, vaccination, or social distancing will eliminate the coronavirus. Yet Team Biden persisted in its “war on covid”.

Biden instituted a 6-prong plan involving vaccine mandates, masking, and insults to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The plan failed spectacularly…just as I (and others) predicted.

Now it appears that Biden is surrendering to reality…and in his War on Covid.

Members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team Wednesday said they are cautiously optimistic about the trajectory of COVID-19 cases in the United States and the White House is preparing for the non-crisis stage of the pandemic.

During a virtual briefing Wednesday, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky said the daily average of new COVID-19 cases was down 40% over the past seven days. She said hospitalizations dropped by 28% and deaths were down 9.5%.

Walensky told reporters the CDC was gathering community health data and said its public health guidance regarding wearing masks “would be updated soon.” Last week, Walensky said COVID-19 hospitalization and death numbers weren’t yet low enough to warrant altering recommendations.

It appears the target date of the transition is early March, which also corresponds to the State of the Union address (March 1).

She said most states and municipalities announcing plans to ease their restrictions are doing so in phases, with most saying they will begin lifting their mask rules by the end of February or early March. Walensky said she anticipates possible CDC guideline updates to “intersect.”

Meanwhile, White House COVID-19 Response Team Coordinator Jeff Zients said the White House has so far distributed 200 million free individual at-home COVID-19 tests around the country. He said the White House has another 800 million on hand for U.S. residents who want them.

I anticipate Biden will decide to declare victory over covid in that address, in hopes of curing his rather sick poll numbers.

President Biden’s approval rating in a key average of major polls dropped below 40 percent this week, the first time that had happened since he took office.

The Real Clear Politics average of all recent national surveys found Wednesday that 39.8 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s performance in office, while 54.4 percent disapproved.

So if we haven’t been vaccinated yet- and haven’t contracted the dreaded covid yet- will we be free from vaccination requirements? After all, there must be a reason we haven’t caught this incredible infectious disease by now, and it’s not because we’ve been masking and social distancing. Because many of us haven’t.

    You won’t be free from testing requirements. Vaccinated people are exempt from most testing requirements.

    You pretty much can’t leave the US without vaccination or proof of prior infection (the latter not being good enough for many countries), and if you’ve never had a positive test it’s a catch-22.

      henrybowman in reply to randian. | February 18, 2022 at 5:17 am

      So glad I thought to get myself an antigen test after I recovered from the coof last year.

      MattMusson in reply to randian. | February 18, 2022 at 8:46 am

      But Mask Mandates are falling faster than Kabul.

      audax in reply to randian. | February 18, 2022 at 9:25 am

      I’m so glad I left the not so United, USA way back when this started happening with Obambi.

      nordic_prince in reply to randian. | February 18, 2022 at 10:19 am

      No doubt the primary reason why the vaxxed are exempt from testing is because they’re more likely to test positive compared to not getting the clot shot.

      It’s a fact that the shot prevents neither infection nor transmission, so the insistence on vaxx passports clearly has nothing to do with “public health.”

      Ironclaw in reply to randian. | February 18, 2022 at 2:20 pm

      Which makes no sense. The so-called vaccine does innoculate you against infection, nor does it stop you from passing the disease onto others This kind of garbage is why I refuse to even listen to the lying assholes at the government, they’re retarded.

His puppeteers think they’ll be able to claim victory because the virus has done what viruses do while the Democrats were doing what Democrats do.

Not one single “messaging” effort from the Flatline regime has succeeded since the Afghanistan cut-and-stumble. The Gaslight Media have been flailing as bad as the Bidenistas and making no headway.

The Democrats decided two years ago they wanted Joe Biden in the White House, and they’ve gotten what they wanted. Good and hard.

This isn’t surrendering, it’s retreating under cover of darkness..

Walensky “said most states and municipalities announcing plans to ease their restrictions are doing so in phases, with most saying they will begin lifting their mask rules by the end of February or early March.”

I understood that most states have already lifted the mask mandates. My state (NV) was beint listed as one of the few stat4es that still had mask mandates, and NV lifted them last week.

This was never about “Science” it was always about “Political Science”. It was about marxist control. This is a bust for the globalists.

You can argue about wether it was intentional or how, but it was always planned. No one is buying it over the entire world. The stories I hear from my friends in Europe are even more hard core. They *are not having it*. Period. But they are the ones being even more locked down.

This virus was only about globalist and marxist control, and they have lost. And now it’s time to start rounding these criminals up. These criminals need to stop existing.

46 is good at surrender. I’ll give him that.

Michigan would still be under mandates if the our SC hadn’t slapped our tin pot, try to go the head of the boat yard line dictator down.
I’ve only worn the freebie store masks to the doctors office when we had that idiotic mask mandate. For all else I made a mask out of weed barrier material and rubber bands.
For a while even I took one of the free store masks, used it to clean the interior of the car, cut holes in it and hung on the rear view mirror to virtue signal.
In a lot of the smaller places I could come and go without a mask or a karen to hyperventilate and go through her theatrics.

Mask mandates still exist on most forms of mass transportation, hospitals, and doctor’s offices. Government offices are also very fond of masks. I don’t see these mandates ever going away no matter how indefensible masks get. I had an MRI recently and had to keep my mask on even though I was the only person in the room besides the lab tech and he had his own mask.

The turning point was weeks ago.

They didn’t announce anything. They didn’t admit anything.

But suddenly nobody was talking about Fauci or inviting him on talk shows anymore.

Obama once said: “Never underestimate Joe’s ability to F things up”. Truer words were never spoken. If Dementia Joe does attempt a political pivot in COVID, it will fail as badly as everything else he has done. And if he is arrogant enough to actually claim credit for beating the virus – oh boy – then we face utter disaster in the next wave.

First most have Covid fatigue and they know that, yet some states and cities are still digging deeper.

What a master piece in cherry picking. Note the time scales on the graph which is exclusively when the Omicron variant is in action. How about plotting the full graph over the last two years. The guidance for many places has changes with respect to masks because of the much higher transmissibility of Omicron.

Also isn’t it bad faith to describe changing the covid policies as surrender. Given that’s exactly what is wanted. Seems to me the position is to attack Biden no matter what course of action he takes and no matter what reasoning he gives

    4rdm2 in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 5:09 am

    Nice try. You can pick literally any decent sized chunk of data and the results are the same. Masks are practically useless.

      Fatkins in reply to 4rdm2. | February 18, 2022 at 5:57 am

      Go on then provide the data.

      Here is one site that has a graph showing the data trends and you’ll note the states with no mask mandates have consistently higher rates than those with mask mandates. To be clear, no one is claiming that masks are a magic bullet rather they were prior to Omicron a sensible mitigation measure.

      Besides which the anti mask sentiment is decidedly weird. I really don’t get why putting a cloth mask out of a sense of human decency not to spread a dangerous disease would be considered controversial. If you are anti mask I trust that you are fully in favor of naturism as a god given right everywhere no matter what.

        nordic_prince in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 10:34 am

        If you’ve ever seen pictures of real virologists working with real deadly pathogens, you’d see their PPE includes positive pressure suits, with nary a cheap mask or even a N95 in sight, let alone a homemade cloth mask. Do you put up a chain link fence and pretend that it makes wonderful mosquito netting, too?

        Masks are worse than useless against viral pathogens. Even the argument for wearing masks in surgery for protection against bacterial contamination (with bacteria being orders of magnitude larger than viruses) is slim, studies having shown that masks do not reduce postoperative infections.

        Quit pretending that masks are anything but symbolic.

          We aren’t talking about a medical setting we are talking about measures outside of that in general life.

          The evidence I’ve cited addresses that context not the straw man you’ve made.

          nordic_prince in reply to nordic_prince. | February 18, 2022 at 2:08 pm

          What “straw man”?

          Masks don’t do a damn thing to prevent illness, and even Herr St. Faux-chi admitted as much in one of his more lucid moments.

          But go ahead and cling bitterly to your mask talisman. Fun fact: you can double its effectiveness by carrying a lucky rabbit’s foot in your pocket. Absolutely true. That’s a simple precaution you can take, and it can’t possibly hurt you.

          Meanwhile, the rest of us will continue to live in the real world rather than conduct our lives according to your (really bad) science fiction.

    henrybowman in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 5:21 am

    “Seems to me the position is to attack Biden no matter what course of action he takes and no matter what reasoning he gives”

    Every decision Biden makes leads to a new failure. You’re right, we should celebrate him more.

      Fatkins in reply to henrybowman. | February 18, 2022 at 5:59 am

      Such as increased employment figures, a robust economy where inflation has increased precisely because the economy is on a rebound.

        henrybowman in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 6:03 am

        It doesn’t count when you’re the guy who destroyed those employment figures in the first place, and they haven’t rebounded even to where they were when you got there.

          Fatkins in reply to henrybowman. | February 18, 2022 at 6:18 am

          That’s demonstrably false since the employment and other economic measures were in the gutter prior to the Biden administration.

          “they haven’t rebounded even to where they were when you got there” No shit Sherlock we are still in the pandemic; albeit the tail end.

          henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | February 18, 2022 at 9:11 am

          It’s not the virus cratering the economy, it’s the administration’s virus policy cratering it.

        Oh bullshit. The inflation is finally heating up after more than a decades or running the money printing presses at full speed. It’s about the money supply.

      Fatkins in reply to henrybowman. | February 18, 2022 at 9:35 am


      Except that happened under Trump exactly when Covid happened including a 30+ point drop in GDP in the 2nd Q of 2020. Unless of course your saying that Trump cratered the economy (which is the logical inference of what you’ve said),

    Colonel Travis in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 5:27 am

    “How about plotting the full graph over the last two years.”

    I’m laughing.

    1.) Looks like someone has no clue that Ian Miller has been plotting full graphs from state and federal governments every day for two GD years, which turned into a book, which (gasp) show the same thing. Hello, is this thing on? Nope.

    2.) If masks worked, then how come the masks never work. Question mark omitted for clarity. Pick a time scale. Two weeks. Two months. Two years. There is no cherry picking, it doesn’t matter the time scale <— see this?

    Pick a country. Pick a city. Pick anything but your nose because you can't with a mask on. They don't stop community spread because if they did we'd have two years of blatant evidence that they did. California would NOT be doing worse than Texas in cases per million through this winter, and California and Texas would not be statistically tied with total cases ever. What we have instead is two years of in-your-diapered-face evidence that masks don’t work at stopping community spread. The fact that you fail to see reality around you is kinda funny.

    Calm down little girl. You can still wear your mask the rest of your life. No one is going to stop you. You’re safe with a mask, right? (I like how when others don’t wear one but you do, you’re the one at risk. Think about that for a second….)

      1) Correct I have no clue who this miller guy is. I’m sorry I don’t follow every right wing twitter user ever. Especially since I’m not on twitter. Now provide a graph showing the full two years.

      2) I don’t see you providing any evidence, merely asserting something is doesn’t make it so. If you care to actual back up your point that would be greatly appreciated.

      Here is a meta-analysis of measures

      I quote “Mask wearing and covid-19 incidence—Six studies with a total of 2627 people with covid-19 and 389 228 participants were included in the analysis examining the effect of mask wearing on incidence of covid-19 (table 1).364357606366 Overall pooled analysis showed a 53% reduction in covid-19 incidence (0.47, 0.29 to 0.75), although heterogeneity between studies was substantial (I2=84%) (fig 5). Risk of bias across the six studies ranged from moderate36576066 to serious or critical4363 (fig 2).”

      “Mask wearing and transmission of SARS-CoV-2, covid-19 incidence, and covid-19 mortality—The results of additional studies that assessed mask wearing (not included in the meta-analysis because of substantial differences in the assessed outcomes) indicate a reduction in covid-19 incidence, SARS-CoV-2 transmission, and covid-19 mortality. Specifically, a natural experiment across 200 countries showed 45.7% fewer covid-19 related mortality in countries where mask wearing was mandatory (table 1).49 Another natural experiment study in the US reported a 29% reduction in SARS-CoV-2 transmission (measured as the time varying reproductive number Rt) (risk ratio 0.71, 95% confidence interval 0.58 to 0.75) in states where mask wearing was mandatory.58”

      That’s a meta analysis which includes multiple studies and a wide range of sources.

      With respect to your California and Texas comments. Again cherry picking one case against the totality of data is a silly thing to do. The total data set strongly suggests you are wrong so the question is why is there a difference in any anomalous results. You know like a good faith analysis instead of reaching a conclusions based on one thing – I think they call that confirmation bias.

      “The fact that you fail to see reality around you is kinda funny.” The data suggests it might be the other way round.

      “You can still wear your mask the rest of your life. ” Strawman, no one is suggesting that mask wearing is going to be a continuous thing forever, its merely a sensible measure (along with other measures) that’s common sense and as highlighted above supported by the evidence.

      “I like how when others don’t wear one but you do, you’re the one at risk. Think about that for a second” This displays your total ignorance about mask wearing in public. Masks are not just to mitigate against inhalation of viral load but to mitigate against discharging viral load. Given we know significant number are asymptomatic and one of the symptoms is coughing its sensible to limit the distance that viral particles can transmit.

      “Calm down little girl” Oh nice ad hominem, I’m very calm thank you.

        Colonel Travis in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 7:27 am

        Everything is cherry picking to you. Sorry, I don’t do research for incorrigible dunces. I pass the baton to someone else to waste their time with The Almighty Fatkins.

          “Everything is cherry picking to you” because that’s what you did, you literally took one single example out of the entire global dataset. You could’ve provided a link to this Miller characters supposed data which you yourself state is the whole set. Talk about lazy.

          Correction – you don’t do research; otherwise you might be able to argue our corner.

        mailman in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 8:12 am

        speaking of cherry picking “Risk of bias across the six [effectiveness of mask] studies ranged from moderate to serious or critical”. In other words, take this report with some large pinches of salt.

          Fatkins in reply to mailman. | February 18, 2022 at 8:17 am

          Err you don’t know what cherry picking is do you. The fact that I include the whole quote demonstrates good faith. the actual figures are significantly in the direction of a positive relationship between masks and a reduction in cases, Additionally read alongside the large scale natural experiments that show similar outcomes.

          Of course as more data the overall picture might change but presently the data is strongly in support of masks as an effective measure against earlier variant of Covid and the original covid.

          mailman in reply to mailman. | February 18, 2022 at 9:43 am

          A report the report writers themselves point out that the “Risk of bias across the six [effectiveness of mask] studies ranged from moderate to serious or critical” darling…your are cherry picking this report in spite of the serious issues stated clearly in the report.

        Sanddog in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 11:33 am

        Can you guys come up with words other than “common sense” and “sensible” when you want to force people to do something that’s not in their best interest… or illegal? Y’all use it with gun control as well.

          Fatkins in reply to Sanddog. | February 18, 2022 at 11:41 am

          Except it is in there best interest and everyone else’s which is entirely the point. As for the legality that’s a different question and one that depends on the context and extents

    mailman in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 8:05 am

    Democrat covid policies certainly weren’t a success fatty! Calling them a surrender is being very, very generous because the only thing thats changed is Democrats suddenly realise they have fucked up their chances in Novembers mid terms and that tells you this was only ever a political issue.

    gibbie in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 11:36 am

    The main problem with the graphs is that they are univariate analyses of multivariate issues. One simple example is that the number of cases is dependent on the number of tests. The article would have been better without the graphs.

    It is completely impossible to design a scientific study to determine the effectiveness of masks. I agree with Dr. Robert Malone (expressed in his interview by Joe Rogan) that they probably reduce your likelihood of infection by about 10%. I would add that that reduction likely decreases with exposure time, so that sitting in classrooms for 6 hours would probably reduce the reduction to ZERO. But Dr. Malone’s opinion and mine are purely based on reason – not data – because there is not and cannot be useful data on this subject.

    I look forward to being attacked by people on both sides!

      Fatkins in reply to gibbie. | February 18, 2022 at 11:56 am

      It isn’t a single study it’s a meta-analysis. That said it is difficult to separate out the variables and that is an honest take. With respect to the extents to which masks are effective that is an open question. The meta analysis suggests that the efficacy is much higher than 10% albeit the studies could be better and therefore a suggestion of lower efficacy is plausible. I think your statement of 10% might be fair. That corresponds to masks being useful as part of a range of measures and not a magic bullet which has been the scientific position all along.

      With respect to reason Vs data. That’s an odd position. The data is what you use to form your reasons otherwise how can you be reasonable in the context of determining efficacy?

      Fatkins in reply to gibbie. | February 18, 2022 at 11:56 am

      I should say I appreciate your comments, you’ve been nothing but reasonable in them thus far

        gibbie in reply to Fatkins. | February 18, 2022 at 1:10 pm

        Fatkins, Thanks for your kind words! There aren’t very many of those in discussions about these issues.

        I’m afraid I have very little confidence in meta-analyses. The results depend entirely on which studies the researcher choses to include or exclude. I don’t think we have any useful data regarding the effectiveness of masks.

        “That corresponds to masks being useful as part of a range of measures and not a magic bullet which has been the scientific position all along.”

        I agree completely. However, the details regarding the conditions which would make masks more effective or worthless are sufficiently complex that most human beings are incapable of understanding them or putting them into practice. First one has to understand. Then one has to exercise a high level of attention. Many people aren’t good at either.

        The policies of teachers unions, school boards, and other democrats demonstrate the inability of some people to understand the issue.

        But then the inability of some people to understand the pressing need to get children out of the government schools is, in my opinion, even more serious. It took grave damage to my own children before I understood it. Although LI helpfully documents the corruption of the government schools and the ways in which they damage children, the LI proprietors don’t seem to be willing to explicitly abandon America’s best example of totalitarian socialism by advising parents to get the kids out.

          Just a quick note @gibbie, here at LI we prefer to provide information on such matters. It is up to parents to decide what is best for their children; we want them to be as informed as possible in making these decisions, but we don’t offer advice (legal or otherwise) even in our opinion pieces. For example, I’ll say what I think, but I won’t say, and now, dear reader, go do “x, y, and z.”

          gibbie in reply to gibbie. | February 18, 2022 at 2:48 pm

          Fuzzy, Thanks for the clarification – that explains a lot. But I seem to remember LI writers suggesting that people seek election to school boards. Perhaps I hallucinated that. Do LI writers refrain from suggesting that people vote Republican? My memory isn’t great.

          I don’t remember any LI debate about the appropriateness of a government run school system. Perhaps I missed it. What do you think about having an education system which is run by our government? Are you in favor of school choice?

          @gibbie, in his many interviews across media platforms and on LIF streamed events that are then published on LI, the prof does offer running for school boards as one of the ways that parents and concerned citizens without school-/college-aged children can make a difference.

          And yes, since LIF was established, we are no longer permitted to endorse a particular political candidate for office (though I don’t recall any LI political candidate endorsements before that, either). We also don’t (not can’t) urge people to vote in any particular way (i.e. Republican), though I think it’s pretty clear where each of us stands. We provide information and resources, often our various opinions, but we really don’t “do” advice or GOTV stuff.

          As to your questions: I have long said that I want the entire federal Department of Education nixed. Just eliminated, gone. I don’t think it’s appropriate to have federal one-size-fits-all oversight of K-12 education; that is the job of the states and then drilled down from there. I think that the more local the running of a school system is, the better.

          If a state wants to privatize education (I’m not sure what that would look like), they should be allowed to do that without any input at all from the federal government. I am not knee-jerk averse to an education system that is not run by any level of government, but I’m not sure how much sense that would make. I’d have to see a proposal for something like that.

          Yes, I am very much in favor of school choice, homeschooling, pod schooling, and every other alternate to the current K-12 de- and re-education system we have. Going back to Common Core, and even before that to No Child Left Behind, the more the feds meddle, the worse our national outcomes, and that is a huge problem. Returning K-12 education to the states would alleviate a lot of problems, including the disastrous grip that teachers’ union have on education (I would also like to see all public unions outlawed; literally, a federal law banning all teachers’ and every other public union).

          What states do with K-12 education when they are no longer beholden to/overseen by/coerced and controlled by the federal government is up to them and to the people.

          @gibbie, I don’t know anything more than what has been reported, either.

          I do know that the 2020 election is over, that Pence (nor any other VP) could not have changed it, and that we need to move on.

          If we’re going to play “if only,” the place to start is with Trump backing down on his push to open the country by Easter, 2020. That happens and none of the shady, and in some cases outright illegal, changes to voting happen. That happens and the economy roars back to life easily. That happens and Biden can’t hide in his WuFlu basement. That happens and Trump, who won 10 million more votes than he won in 2016, is reelected in a landslide.

          Of course hindsight is 20/20 and Dems would have tried other means that may or may not have worked, but “if only” Trump had stuck to his guns on that….

          Colonel Travis in reply to gibbie. | February 18, 2022 at 2:49 pm

          Fuzzy I agree with you wholeheartedly. I love taking sides, but above that I demand intellectual honesty and the notion that if you want to follow nonsense, then you go right ahead. There is information out there, learn from it or not. Some people who simply don’t know better can be convinced if you give support for ideas they have never considered and are receptive to it. It happened to me long ago, I voted straight (D) my first election ever. Then over the next several years I educated myself in ways no one else had done for me and became a conservative. But that was my doing. If others had simply repeatedly told me: vote (R) because I told you to, or vote (R) because of whatever generic, superficial reason of the day happened to be, it would have done nothing to persuade me. I had to change from within, and the changes had to be meaningful and rational.

          Committed leftists cannot change from within or else their entire house of cards collapses. Critical examination of one issue leads to critical examination of all others. It must, or else you are lying to yourself and others. I still need to defend my beliefs and I’m glad to do it with someone who is not Fatkins-like. For the left, The Cause is all that matters. Reason is impossible with these people. The funny thing is that they say the same thing about us, but having been on both sides of the political fence, I know for a fact which side is full of it.

          gibbie in reply to gibbie. | February 18, 2022 at 4:19 pm

          Fuzzy, Wow! Thank you for your thoughtful response!

          Not being allowed to endorse particular candidates: Understood. Only democrat entities can do that. :-/

          Nix the Department of Education: Yes!

          Allow states to privatize education: I’m not in favor of states privatizing education. Enabling funding to follow students instead of systems would be a huge improvement.

          Delighted to hear you are in favor of school choice of all types!

          Outlaw public sector unions: Absolutely!

          What I think is still missing is information about why government-run education is problematic.

          o Government schools are inherently unaccountable to parents and taxpayers,

          o Your neighborhood government school is inherently unable to accommodate the values of different groups of parents.

          o “Religious neutrality” is a pernicious myth.

          o The oppressive origins of the government schools.

          o The fact that good teachers and staff exist in government schools, and suffer greatly.

          o Potential dangers of school choice.

          o The people ultimately responsible for the education of their children are their parents.

    Considering that the retarded, demenia-ridden pedophile and his vice-whore have managed nothing but unmitigated failure for an entire year of their illegitimate administration, there’s no need to cherry pick. Choose whatever you want, the pedophile has done nothing but fail.

On January 20 1993 William Jefferson Clinton “cured” HIV/AIDS and homelessness merely by taking the oath of office. After that these twin scourges – personally created and spread by Reagan and Bush I according to the Joseph Goebbels media – went almost unmentioned for the eight years of his rule.

I had fully expected a similar occurrence when the Communists seized power on January 20 2021 through an illegitimate election. Instead, the Wuflu theocracy proved impossible for the genocidal maniacs that make up the Communist Party’s base to give up. Even now the Biden* junta is still trying to work both sides of the street in an effort to appease the religious fanatics within its own ranks.

The only masks that have been proven effective are properly fitted n95 masks, which no one wore until very recently. And even now, they are probably only five percent of what’s being worn.

    There’s a big leap from “wearing an n95 mask” to “wearing a properly fitted n95 mask”.

    I’ve seen no evidence that training and fit testing are available to the general public, even if/when the masks are obtainable. If the masks were easy to use properly, fit testing wouldn’t be a thing.

    And properly fitted n95 masks come with their own risks…

    Germany has mandated n95 masks for some time now, their numbers have only gotten worse over time. People don’t use them properly and n95’s are too uncomfortable to wear for extended periods like that.

It looks to me like the people at the top are not really ending the mandates but only announcing that they themselves are getting out of the mandate process. Here in CA, our prison warden eased the mandates but left it up to the localities to make the final decision. However, as soon as the SF school committee recall results were announced, he called for the legislature to meet ASAP to review his State of Emergency policy for reconciliation. It was scheduled for review on March 15. So he’s caving but… We’ll see.

Meanwhile, here in LA County, our fake doctor Ferrer shook off Hair Gel’s announcement and kept the mandates in place. But every single politician attending the Super Bowl failed to comply including the fake doctor herself who went maskless triggering contentious exchanges at this week’s County Supervisors’ meeting where she hemmed, hawed and stammered signaling to the teachers’ unions that she was weakening. So the teachers union announced that they were not going to budge. Are we going to witness a strike?

So don’t get too comfortable yet. It will take a while to bludgeon the unions into submission. And we can expect measures of retribution from Biden and others against parents who confronted the school boards for instance. He is also promising a harsh response should US truckers start their own convoy.

So the walls are crumbling. They may be afraid but they have not given up. These are desperate, power-crazed people whose global strategy and tactics have exploded in their faces. They are more dangerous than ever and it wouldn’t surprise me if they triggered an historic stock market crash sending us in a long, deep depression.

Now it appears that Biden is surrendering to reality…and in his War on Covid.

No, he isn’t. The “science” hasn’t changed in Fauci’s opinion. What has changed is the political climate. Biden’s handlers realize they’ve taken the “pandemic” as far as they can and now need to change course to hopefully improve their chances with the rapidly approaching Nov 2022 midterm election. So out with the mask mandates. Out with the forced vaccination progroms. Out with it all.

All this is is another failure for the pedophile-in-chief to add to the mountain of epic failures his illegitimate administration has stacked up with their year i a stolen office.
