Biden Administration Planning to Extend Covid Public Health Emergency

Biden Administration Planning to Extend Covid Public Health Emergency

HHS Sec. Beccera’s warning about “midterm” variant shows that the real emergency involves Democrats’ political health.

One day, I will no longer write about covid.

But today is not that day.

After two years of covid lockdowns, restrictions, and progressive virtue signaling with promises of being able to contain an uncontainable virus, the country is seeing a surge in covid cases.

Laughably, officials say they “know how to manage it.”

Top U.S. health officials warned Tuesday that a surge of COVID-19 cases driven by the highly transmissible Omicron subvariant BA.5 has arrived, but stressed that the country has the tools — like vaccines and antiviral treatments — to prevent people from getting seriously ill.

“We know how to manage it,” Dr. Ashish Jha, coordinator of the White House’s COVID-19 response, said at a virtual press briefing. “We can prevent serious illness. We can save lives and we can minimize disruptions caused by COVID-19.”

As I predicted, the world will experience wave after wave of covid until we have built up enough immunity so future variants will join the very long list of common cold viruses. In fact, in my personal experience, I know many people who are now recovering from covid infections who did not believe me when I said that we would all, eventually, get the disease.

I have heard the phrase, “Leslie, you were right,” quite a bit in the last three weeks.

But the reality is not stopping the Biden administration from extending the covid emergency.

The Biden Administration is set to extend emergency measures that enable people to ward off or fight an infection with the novel coronavirus, according to a new report.

The public health emergency has been in effect, with extensions, since January 2020.

Besides providing access to Medicaid for millions of Americans who wouldn’t otherwise be eligible, the measures help clear vaccines, medications and diagnostic tools for use. An emergency declaration also makes telehealth services more accessible.

The declaration also boost pandemic-response funding, which has been ebbing as existing money is spent.

The Biden administration’s Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Beccera claimed there was a strong chance positive cases would increase…just in time for this year’s midterm elections.

His statement comes after Joe Biden urged preparations for a second pandemic during a recent press conference despite his campaign promise of “shutting down the virus.” The secretary’s claims about a resurgence has sparked criticism online with many poking fun at his concerns about a “midterm variant.”

Recent polls show only 21 percent of Americans are concerned about a new variant. Meanwhile, the Associated Press reported that scientists have suggested a new strain of the virus could potentially stand against vaccination status and immunity.

Meanwhile, in one of the looniest parts of California, mask mandates are poised to return in 2 weeks.

Los Angeles County is on track to enter the “high” COVID-19 community level as soon as Thursday, in which case an indoor mask mandate would return two weeks later, the public health director said Tuesday.

If the county continues at its current pace, masks could be mandated indoors again by July 29.

The press is duly playing up the “worst variant” angle. That is, until the actual variant before the midterms are identified.

What makes BA.5 different? Eric Topol, a cardiologist and professor of molecular medicine at Scripps Research, has called BA.5 “the worst version of the virus we’ve seen.” He explained in a recent newsletter: “It takes immune escape, already extensive, to the next level, and, as a function of that, enhanced transmissibility,” well beyond earlier versions of Omicron.

In other words, BA.5 can easily evade immunity from previous infections and vaccines, increasing the risk of reinfection. Though the variant does not appear to lead to more severe illness, in an interview with CNN on Monday, Topol said that given the extent of BA.5’s immune evasion, he expects to see an escalation in hospitalizations, as we’ve seen in Europe and elsewhere that the variant has taken root. “One good thing is it doesn’t appear to be accompanied by the ICU admissions and the deaths as previous variants, but this is definitely concerning,” he added.

And the vaccinated and boosted Dr. Anthony Fauci, who recently recovered from covid after creating all the nation-crushing policies Americans have been forced to endure for the past two years, is back and recommending masks.

Dr. Anthony Fauci returned to lead the White House’s public messaging on COVID-19 this week after his own battle with the disease — urging Americans to again wear masks and get boosted amid the threat of waning immunity against surging new variants.

The administration’s 81-year-old chief medical adviser has been lying low since testing positive in mid-June.

Now recovered, the quadruple-vaccinated infectious disease expert gave a series of interviews Tuesday to warn of surging cases sparked by the latest Omicron variant, BA.5 — and caution Americans that even those recently recovered from an infection are likely still at risk.

“The threat to you is now,” Fauci warned during a White House briefing Tuesday.

After doing it Fauci’s way for two years, how about doing it my way:

  • No testing, unless symptoms warrant identification of virus.
  • Promotion of early treatment options that are inexpensive and readily accessible.
  • Focusing on good diet, vitamins and exercise as preventatives against severe covid.
  • End vaccine mandates, and allow people to make the decision about the vaccine that best suit their own risks.

Finally, end the ridiculous “public health emergency,” which at this point is a “political health emergency.”

Reminds me of a jody:

Heeeeeeeeeere we go again

Same old Sh!t again….

This is the plan to create the confusion necessary to attempt to steal the elections again.

As stated, this is a POLITICAL health emergency

NavyMustang | July 14, 2022 at 9:13 am

My way has been to follow 2 rules: if you’re sick stay away from healthy people, and if you’re healthy stay away from sick people. It’s always worked for me.

    Dimsdale in reply to NavyMustang. | July 14, 2022 at 9:24 am

    Wash you hands frequently (soap is better), and never touch your face.

      randian in reply to Dimsdale. | July 14, 2022 at 9:20 pm

      Covid transmission via surfaces is essentially nonexistent. Washing your hands would be pointless as a covid containment measure.

    Idonttweet in reply to NavyMustang. | July 14, 2022 at 10:10 am

    In addition to Democrats who need to scare the populace into accepting “emergency” changes to election laws, the only people still scared of COVID are those who are already vaccinated against it and therefore at increased risk of contracting it.

    We all recognize that if politicians can violate laws in the name of an emergency without repercussion, they’ll extend or create emergencies so they can violate laws to benefit themselves.

    The symptoms of the current, dominant variant, Omincron BA.5, are a sore throat, sneezing, and a runny nose. If a case of the sniffles panics you, go ahead and panic. I’d prefer federal and state legislatures reign in the executive power they’ve ceded over the years and put an end to this never-ending “emergency.”

Is there an election coming or something?

There is a certain kind of mind that does not understand the difference between a machete and a scalpel. Unfortunately, many of those people are attracted to government “service.” I never knew before how many of them were in the public health ministries.

I reviewed the State’s COVID19 dashboard yesterday. According to wastewater testing – there were 3 – 5 cases per 10,000 in the 3 closest wastewater plants by me. (Not hiding in my basement for that!)

Wastewater testing is now the only reliable tracking information, because people testing at home don’t report their results.

chrisboltssr | July 14, 2022 at 9:42 am

How about this. There is no such thing COVID-19. There, I said it.

I don’t want to hear about any of you getting sick, or almost died or died from COVID-19. All of that stuff happened and will happen in the absence of COVID-19.

And don’t tell me about it being a Chinese virus. We can’t even get them to allow us to verify there was a virus that leaked from the lab. Maybe that’s because there was never a virus to begin with.

I’m done with this nonsense.

    taurus the judge in reply to chrisboltssr. | July 14, 2022 at 10:01 am

    Well ( don’t ask too much as i cannot violate NSA statements or my clearance)

    There is a real legitimate virus ( most likely an enhanced weaponized version which ultimately is what “gain of function” transliterates into)-that’s not in dispute.

    In terms of a bio agent- it would be a “novel” agent with a specific purpose. Clearly low infection and low risk ( defined in terms of lethality as say compared to Y-Pestis, weaponized Anthrax and others)

    The lab leak story may or may not be true but in either case- if the “reported” infection paths are accurate and the “numbers” real (Personally I don’t believe either are but its the only data available)- if true, then such a scenario could NOT produce the distributions we were told.

    Given the system manipulations I personally researched ( the actual metrics, changing definitions of a vaccine, the way diagnosis’ were made, financial incentives, political cover fire, the 2020 election and talking with lots of legitimate SME’s in applicable fields)-

    I’m irrevocably convinced that what we know as COVID-19 is truly a manufactured event that was used, exaggerated and manipulated for multiple destructive purposes. A “controllable” agent was strategically released at key centers for regional dispersal over time and then everything else was “manipulated” toward the deliverables.

    I fully believe even that known proper treatment protocols were deliberately altered to hopefully “produce casualties” because nobody would “fear” the flu. (I call that murder) and when those mass casualties didn’t occur ( need a photo op to quieten the masses) then the long drawn out treatments and number padding started hoping to keep the casualty count as high as possible.

    I no longer use the term scamdemic because it is inaccurate. This was a deliberate military grade attack with multiple objectives as a precursor for a much larger event.

    Yeah people made money and all that but that was not the objective- that was simply the cost and expense of executing and managing to end deliverable of the actual attack.

    I fully believe there is a round 2 already locked and loaded.

    There, I said it too.

      Plandemic

      in the wild not too many weeks after a stricter round of trade sanctions against china.

      The_Mew_Cat in reply to taurus the judge. | July 14, 2022 at 12:49 pm

      Sorry, I don’t consider a virus with a 0.1-0.5% IFR to be “military grade” in any capacity whatsoever. I think WIV was developing SARS2 for use, but the virus got away from them early, in their own country, before it was fully developed. It got loose because the schmucks were sloppy. In some sense, it was more of a dress rehearsal of a pandemic and not the real deal. When the CCP wants to do it for real, possibly in cahoots with the Democratic Party to stop Trump in 2024, they will do the same trick on Nipah they did on SARS2 (add a furin cleavage site and run it through humanized mice), and release it in the US before the election.

        nordic prince in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | July 14, 2022 at 1:39 pm

        The real military grade weapon is not so much “the virus” as it is the clot shot.

        The whole thing is a psyop: Get people scared out of their gourd regarding an illness that’s about as harmless as a cold so they’re primed to do whatever it takes to eliminate the bogeyman. Then introduce a clot shot and its unending boosters (which has the convenient feature of sterilization for 75-80% of the population) as the magic remedy that’s going to save civilization.

        And there you go – you’ve gotten rid of a good chunk of the “useless eaters,” and those who’ve survived the clot shot will be by and large unable to reproduce. Win-win if you’re an elite who wants to reduce the population of the unwashed masses. Those icky people are ruining the planet and spoiling their fun.

          taurus the judge in reply to nordic prince. | July 14, 2022 at 2:41 pm

          Funny you mention this.

          Many of the PhD and MD. class I formerly worked with in the Chemical world hold a similar opinion. (way out of my skill set to comment on but this is their world and I listen when they speak on the subject)

          Several blew head gaskets about calling it a vaccine ( by changing the definition) when it clearly wasn’t and isn’t.

          “Many” suspect the clot shot was (is) the “real” weapon for a purpose yet to be fully discovered. (possibly a second level attack). Many also suspect that “power people” have been given “placebos” even if they “think” they took the vaccine.

          Personally I’m not fully there yet but leaning in that direction. I just need more data. That said, I do not discount the high possibility there is a lot of truth to their theories.

          randian in reply to nordic prince. | July 14, 2022 at 9:31 pm

          I’ve suspected population reduction as the real purpose of wanting to vaccinate everybody, even children, given the reported concentration of spike proteins in the ovaries and testes (the former far more problematic than the latter), a phenomenon that hasn’t been reported for unvaccinated people. Unfortunately by the time the effect is obvious (give it 5-10 years, when the children being vaccinated now start having their own children) it will be far too late, population collapse will be inevitable. A “Children of Men” scenario.

          henrybowman in reply to nordic prince. | July 14, 2022 at 11:33 pm

          You realize that you have just 100% described the plot of “Utopia,” which came out (at least the US version did) almost precisely as COVID hit, and probably had some measurable effect on the vax resistance movement. It’s still worth watching.

        taurus the judge in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | July 14, 2022 at 2:33 pm

        What you consider “military grade” is meaningless except to you-I gave you the correct category. I’m not debating you on this- I’m correcting you.

        All agents ( Chem and bio) are rated as to end effect such as “obfuscating” ( chemical smoke such as from smoke generators even with irritants and radar glitter added) then to “irritant” ( CS, CN, Vomit agents and such for riot control) to mass casualty producers (nerve, blood, blister etc.)

        Others (novel) agents attack things such as infrastructure ( an agent that drains resources or creates calamity such as social disruptions and fear), some target specific groups, some just animals and so on. (novel agents also allow for pre-inoculation and other prophylactic’s/exclusion measures to not harm friendlies)

        Contrary to google and Hollywood, “war” is fought in many dimensions and has many objectives- not just outright “death”. NBC agents fit that niche because they are the only weapons systems that run the full spectrum. (bombs and bullets just destroy and often destroy the thing the enemy wants to possess eventually)

        Only an invader with a side construction company would want Hiroshima the day after.

        Real enemies want to possess and use that which they conquer- this is where NBC agents come in and are a perfect fit for “undeclared” war. (not to mention the poor man’s Atom Bomb- relatively cheap)

        You may have never heard of it but there were even Saddam’s “Aids Whores” plan using human female vectors to spread AIDS prior to the Gulf War as a terror weapon.

        This is not counting the accompanying “force multipliers” such as buying politicians to make bad worse.

        Just curious, why do you think all these “bio-lab” still exist? They aren’t about the next “Andromeda Strain”

        This was in no way an “accident” nor was it “randomly spread”

        The general pop has no working knowledge of how war is planned and executed- especially with highly specialized weapon systems such as these. Nobody’s fault- its just the way it is.

          The_Mew_Cat in reply to taurus the judge. | July 14, 2022 at 2:55 pm

          It really did seem more like a psyop or a dress rehearsal than a real pandemic. They found out what they can do and how easily they can do it with a relatively mild virus. Whether the initial release was deliberate or accidental is immaterial. If they do a pandemic for real in the future (and I expect them to do so), they now know a lot more about what they can do than they ever did before. The will know what mistakes to avoid, what laws to use, what people will comply with and how long, etc…

          taurus the judge in reply to taurus the judge. | July 14, 2022 at 3:32 pm

          @Mew

          Several of my associates believe this was “it” but I lean more toward your view that this was a beta test ( probably that exceeded expectations after Trump had the election stolen from him)

          I personally believe the “original release” ( regardless of version) is also a red herring and a lie. A cover story to establish a false “point or time of origin”. I base that on a technical evaluation ( from one with the requisite skills) on reported media information

          ( Yeah, that’s right up there with an MD evaluating the “Alien Autopsy” video for validity of the alien but its all we have to work with)

          Given the size of the lab and its profile- this would not have a large concentration of agent to begin with.

          A “release” would be self contained by the population movement and geography. For a single event ( and the alleged timing) to propagate as it allegedly did is virtually impossible. (even plagues like the Bubonic Plague didn’t move like this or other diseases- even vector transmitted)

          “Natural decontamination” would also begin immediately. (UV, time, environment etc.)

          I don’t think they were fully prepared to take advantage of the success they achieved.

          Just my opinion based on a technical observation on that.

          I am not sure just where to but into this conversation. The data is unavailable to me as are the mathematical tools are beyond me to do the modeling; so, you really think that the frequency of international travel, and the pattern of Chinese tourists to places like Italy ( I have read) are insufficient to explain how it eventually got around the world? Lots can be explained by foolishness, arrogance, and mistake without purposeful actors, but what do I know.. (Just an MD with no clearances who struggled a little with diff eq long ago.
          I am mystified by the drive to vaccinate healthy young, purposeful harm to future reproductivity seems something of a sci-fi story, but what do I know.
          The story on hqc and ivermectin is unclear to me. Pierre Kory replaced a legend at my alma mater when he retired, I find it hard to believe he was/is a “crackpot”.
          Then again, it seems we don’t know to sure if Nixon won in 1960 and who was behind the assassination of jfk….

          taurus the judge in reply to taurus the judge. | July 15, 2022 at 8:43 am

          @MDP

          As stated in other areas, my field of expertise was more nuke/chem and along the equipment and filtration side so what I’m relating comes from the SMEs in the bio area who I know what they are talking about. Some of the references available (non-classified) to color this and explain it in more detail would be NBC Battle book (chapter 4, USACHPPM); FM 3-7 (Field Handbook NBC agents); FM 3-6 Field Behavior of NBC agents. I’m speaking specifically of MD’s and PhDs in areas of virology, epidemiology, and other related fields.

          This is a complex subject by itself even without all the obvious “attention” by those with other “motives”. Here is an exceptionally short text addressment of your comments. ( leaves a lot out that the reader will have to study the references to fully grasp)

          First, to do what is claimed (in terms of spreading) would be impossible from a small outbreak from a remote location. Reality is that we have infectious
          communicable disease with us 24/7 from the beginning to present.

          NONE spread like this and Covid isn’t going to be the first. (Any legitimate spread as shown in the manuals will have a clear distinct infection path from ground/patient zero). None exists here and if someone had not “reported” this alleged lab leak- nobody would even have a “source”

          Second- the “diagnosis” is symptomatic and not verified by lab and autopsy (a looks like diagnosis from a checklist)- everyone tells me this is bogus because it allows for false positives and such to taint the true numbers. There’s no actual verifiable “proof” (that would survive legitimate scrutiny) that all these cases were actually COVID-19.

          Third- The tests have 2 major issues. Their questionable accuracy and reliability and even that is based on what exactly are they testing for? (See above)

          The short answer is this: There is no “bulletproof” facts/data that “proves” there was ever a COVID-19 epidemic to begin with. Yes, there is a disease by that name and yes it harmed people but, in the end, (with all the definition changing and number manipulation and political protocols) there is no lab verified evidence that this was anything other than a normal strain running its course and the data was manipulated to make it look like a worldwide disaster. In order for this dispersal pattern to be valid- it would require multiple releases in strategic areas and the timing of the infection growth doesn’t match either.

          That’s on the disease proper- now the treatment.

          Several of my contacts know this Dr. Kory (heard his name mentioned a good bit) and he is held in high regard by many.

          They are almost all screaming that the “published treatment models” are deliberately designed to not effectively treat the disease. (that’s way beyond my ability to comment on- perhaps you as a physician would comment further on)

          Basically all that and the political threats to licenses, conduct of organizations and whatever else- lead these people to firmly believe this is a true attack and deliberate false flag operation that’s currently still in progress.

          nordic prince in reply to taurus the judge. | July 16, 2022 at 8:54 am

          @taurus

          I like the cut of your jib 😉

          One of the things that I find most curious was during one of Trump’s covid press conferences, when Mike Pompeo was speaking he mentioned “we are in a live exercise” (those exact words), and Trump made a sotto voce remark (you have to listen carefully to hear it) about “you should have told me first.”

          https://www.c-span.org/video/?c5000598/user-clip-we-live-exercise-here-mike-pompeo

          To me that is proof positive that this whole “coronavirus” thing and the ensuing madness (lockdowns, masks, coerced “vaccinations,” etc) are NOT about “health” nor “safety.”

      Remember how they hounded Trump? A nasty assed reporter asked if he could “guarantee” that everyone who needed a ventilator would have one. Trump said, “The country is manufacturing a lot of them now. We are accumulating a lot.”

      But the reporter kept hounding him again and again “Can you guarantee?” Finally Trump said, “Look, don’t be a cutie pie, OK?” .

        taurus the judge in reply to Peabody. | July 14, 2022 at 2:47 pm

        Yeah I remember. Trump is a businessman- not a General officer and not an “expert” on everything (regardless of how the media tries to portray him as having a superhuman intellect)

        I doubt Trump has (or had) much technical knowledge of all of this and I seriously question the quality of his advisors and their counsel too. I think Trump was deliberately lied to and fed false information many times.

        I give Trump a pass for speaking his mind. This “alleged” unpolished roughness people say about him doesn’t bother me in the least. I notice these same people don’t hold liberals, BLM and other groups to that same standard either.

    All right, I’m opposed to all these restrictions and mandates and requirements and massive overreaches of government power, but a comment like that isn’t useful.

    When you refuse to hear any evidence that conflicts with your beliefs then it’s easy to never have to change those beliefs. Yes, there is a COVID virus. And yes, many people have gotten sick and died from it. Putting your fingers in your ears and yelling “LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU” doesn’t change that reality.

Biden wants China like power to lockdown and incarcerate people for no reason.

Never let a crises **go to waste** – end.

Der Fuhrer has spoken!

So we are almost certainly going to war soon and our own government incurs 160,000 casualties (13%) on our troops before they fight a single battle.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/07/13/more-260000-troops-not-fully-vaccinated-many-face-discharge-under-biden-administration-mandate/

And Homeland Security declared former police and former soldiers as the most likely domestic terrorists years ago. Now we know why. Our side doesn’t have a government. The war has already been lost and we didn’t even know there was a war being fought.

Does maintaining the ‘state of emergency’ bypass normal restrictions on the ability of the state to execute arbitrary, unaccountable, and draconian rule over the public?

Then of course a Democrat administration is going to extend it.

texansamurai | July 14, 2022 at 10:32 am

have never held much for coincidence–regardless what arises, we would do well to remember the progs mantra from 2020: “by any means necessary. ”

their focus is to remain in power–ours needs to be to vote them out–we need to be willing to do whatever necessary to assure fair and impartial elections this november–that should be our focus no matter the distractions–manufactured or otherwise

Another key reform for Congress and your State Legislature: require a vote to extend any emergency declaration past 30 days. Remove the option of shenanigans where the executive ends then declares another consecutive emergency. Require the executive go to the legislative branch and seek approval for any substantially similar emergency declaration.

    Ha, that’s a cute thought – Illinois does indeed have such a provision. Doesn’t do any good when you have someone like Gov. FatAss at the helm and D lackeys controlling the state government. They just flout the law and do whatever the hell they want. Sue to get them to abide by the law, and you run into judges who look the other way.

    The only thing these people understand are tar and feathers/ pitchforks/ nooses.

      CommoChief in reply to nordic prince. | July 14, 2022 at 5:29 pm

      It will work in States where the legislature is still response to the people for instincts of self preservation if nothing more noble. If you live in a State that doesn’t match that description, such as Illinois, or CA even after the loony leftists went full totalitarian last time….that’s on you.

      It must be incredibly frustrating to realize how bad your State and in many cases local govt actually is. Oppressive bureaucratic karens given free rein to ruin your lives and livelihood. Some of us, heck many of us don’t face that because we made the wise choice not to do so.

      Pack your crap and move dude. It’s a big Nation with lots of options but only if you choose to exercise that option. Remaining in an oppressive environment seems unwise but that’s a choice as well.

It’s a shame that Illinois is caught in a stranglehold by the Ds, because once you get away from $#!+cago and its collar counties, it’s all farmland and overwhelmingly decent, commonsense people, who are mostly conservative. It does little good to vote when the $#!+cago machine basically controls the vote.

          Glad to hear you decided not to stay behind the lines. TX has has its own issues, lots of rino in State govt. I spent ten years in El Paso before moving back to Bama.

          I couldn’t be happier to live in a Red and rural county in a Red and rural State. Good rural neighbors, an ethnicity diverse bunch with a similar mindset, everyone happy to help when asked but mind their own business otherwise.

    require a vote to extend any emergency declaration past 30 days

    DeSantis had to push the legislature here in Florida to stop that nonsense. Counties were using their “limited time” emergency powers in perpetuity by re-declaring a new emergency every 30 days.

      CommoChief in reply to randian. | July 15, 2022 at 8:08 am

      Yeah, the unbridled arrogance of some elected officials is amazing. Heck Roman Dictators were appointed to fixed term but 21st century politicians simply refuse to ask for an extension and instead continue to misuse their power.

This is ridiculous. The first thing the next Congress should do is vote to cancel the emergency and cancel all contracts over the “vaccine”.

Remember they also changed the definition of “Pandemic” and “Vaccine”.

American Human | July 14, 2022 at 12:38 pm

I figure that if I get sick, I’ll be sick for a little bit and then I’ll get better.

A few weeks ago, I got, what I thought, was a bad cold. Runny nose, little cough, a bit of a fever. I had to work so I took Dayquil in the day and Nyquil at night with some Tylenol to fight the fever. I can’t afford to lay in bed and be sick and since I work from home, no worries about still working.

After a few days, lo and behold, I got better. I never got tested so who knows if was the wu-hu flu or just a cold. Who cares. If I got tested and found to be positive, then I’d have to be hassled by the health department for the next few months.

Fat_Freddys_Cat | July 14, 2022 at 12:38 pm

It seems that nobody in government knows what an emergency is. Even if it was a legitimate emergency at one point we’re well past that point now.

I don’t think the public is going to buy it. BA5 is a nothingburger. Deaths are at the lowest levels since 2020. No, if these clowns want a Midterm Variant, they will need a totally new virus. Another version of the same old SARS2 will not do. Americans already have too much immunity. If the want a new pandemic, they might cook up a human transmissible version of Bird Flu in a lab and release it 30-45 days before the election. Monkeypox will not do since it is not a respiratory virus. And I think they will save something really potent, like a modified Nipah virus for the Presidential Election in 2024, to prevent Trump’s return. Something that deadly is overkill for a mere Midterm.

Wife suffered from hyperparathyroidism, which can be very painful and was in her case. Her surgery in Seattle was scheduled for 3 months out, and then Gov. Inslee cancelled all elective surgeries 2-3 days before to mitigate the “threat of Omicron”. We’d had more than enough of Covid panic and arranged surgery at the Norman Clinic in Tampa, FL, about 3 weeks after Inslee’s overreaction. The day before we flew out, the surgeon was calling to reschedule – which would have been another 2-3 weeks. We took satisfaction in telling them we moved the surgery to somewhere more supportive of patients and less politically driven. Sure it cost a bunch but well worth it to have my joyful wife back and pain free.

This Covid BS will affect my political viewpoint for the rest of my life. I don’t think I’ve ever been so resolved to vote against incumbent Democrats and their RINO enablers.

    “This Covid BS will affect my political viewpoint for the rest of my life. I don’t think I’ve ever been so resolved to vote against incumbent Democrats and their RINO enablers.”

    If all we can do is vote against them, we’ve already lost.
    Not to glow too hard, but we need to move past that. Sorry it’s hard news, but it’s true.

      That’s true. More than the power of voting every 2-4 years, I’ve come to view resistance and truth as my most powerful tools. What’s been hard for me, and perhaps many conservative people, who tend (in my observation) to be more quiet and reserved, is overcoming my reticence and pushing back with determination. Where the other side’s ignorance often seems to go hand in hand with loud and obnoxious behavior, I find truth, humor and mockery a silver bullet with them. Most of the time.

      Moving that surgery from Seattle to Tampa was a $100,000+ knee to the groin of liberal fear-based political tyranny. It ain’t just the house that has the “power of the purse” – the “get woke go broke” campaign is proof we’re learning how to fight back with strength between the elections. Just last month we cancelled a near $2000 resort and spa celebration of our 25th anniversary when the spa said we had to wear masks between and during treatments and the restaurant said they were only serving the vaxxed. So we enjoyed a staycation and enjoyed several evenings out locally. None of those services we were prepared to pay for have anything better than where we live. I do think it’s important to let them know, in no uncertain terms, that we’re taking our business elsewhere because of “woke-ism” and max/vax tyranny.

Mutagenic, non-sterilizing, immunity inhibiting, experimental medical treatments correlated with excess adverse events and all-causes deaths mandated by choice, Choice, and force to the general population, forward-looking collateral damage, and a petri dish, viral collector, and transmission membrane that should be treated as biohazardous waste.

Omicron has NOWHERE NEAR the lethality of alpha or delta (which were 5% at most)

This is a farce.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to healthguyfsu. | July 14, 2022 at 3:01 pm

    5%, huh?? Divide that by 10. The max Delta death rate was about 1/2 of a percent.

      healthguyfsu in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | July 14, 2022 at 9:51 pm

      Relax…I’m talking about both strains and when early data skewed the rates to look high. Obviously, they came down some as sampling error was accommodated. However, the original strain will always appear more deadly simply due to novelty.

“HHS Sec. Beccera’s warning about “midterm” variant shows that the real emergency involves Democrats’ political health. ”

Gee, project much? Another moron who thinks anyone is listening to him…well, maybe some who still run around outside wearing a face diaper (that does absolutely NOTHING other than create a bacterial biomat to rebreath.)

Because 2 1/2 years isn’t enough to flatten the curve?

Mail in ballots.. because……….

SMH

TY Leslie.. I do like your plan.

Well, they were forced to do this. How else can they expect to continue stealing elections? You can’t argue with success.

I would argue that everything they’re doing is intended to make covid worse, not better. Offering ineffective vaccines in the middle of the pandemic, vaccines that are narrowly targeted and encourage mutation to avoid them, does nothing but create variants that won’t be stopped by these medications and worse, may not be stopped by natural immunity.

General immune system damage from these vaccines is also being reported, which serves to make the vaccinated generally susceptible to all diseases and cancers not just covid.

Repeated population-wide application of vaccines and boosters, aside from the tens of thousands of people who are going to be permanently harmed or killed by the vaccines themselves, will eventually give them what they want: a disease that really is both dangerous and transmissible.

Anyone read this article, “It’s all a scam”? It seems as if we haven’t been so thoroughly gas-lighted since the serpent talked Eve into trusting his advice.

    According to legend, the term “conspiracy theory” was devised by the CIA in the 60’s as a preemptive defense and attack to be used against anyone attacking the “official” narrative.

    The problem is that the USG ( and its agencies) have been caught too many times now and there is much more exposure ( fewer hiding places) and more people critically examining thigs so the actors are having much more difficulty making this defense work.

    From my position viewing what they are doing through a psyops lens- I can clearly see all the elements of a scam. On the technical side, I know many of the things are just either factually false or deliberately designed to not deliver results.

    I also see how they manipulate the masses to keep everyone in a perpetual state of confusion and argumentation ( maintaining the status quo).

    Scam implies fraud used toward a scheme to take money- I started there years ago on COVID as a means of wealth redistribution and tool to keep Trump out of office. I really did expect the “Covid crisis” to end shortly after the inauguration. (it achieved both goals)

    Now, with even more data and current events, if it was a “scam” initially, that was just a milestone along a greater critical path than an end goal.

    This is clearly a physical military attack (bio weapon) with a novel agent ( the release was the first stage) with the second stage the faux vaccine ( the vaccine that isn’t but is promoted as which does nothing against the disease its designed to protect against).

    I don’t know the end goal of the vaccine attack and don’t think its been fully realized yet.

    This attack was enabled and protected ( two different things) by politicians and officials which required draconian regulations, definition modification and threats to prevent the professionals in the relevant fields from fully discovering/ identifying the true attack and even remedying it.

    This is not random nor is it natural.

    Its also well beyond just a weaponized novel agent ( code for what engineering for “gain of function” really means) because they needed an agent they could use to manipulate the masses by FEAR without a significant actual risk.

    If they wanted a real body count, there are much more lethal agents- they didn’t.

    This attack was the trojan horse that enabled the Manchurian politicians and officials to strategically attack every point of the economy and supply chain to where neither would suffer “immediately ” but would be a progressive decline over time.

    I fear round 3 is coming

      It would be nice to have an extended conversation, who is running what? Who are the dupes?
      I was affiliated with a major academic medical center for years and knew their ID people well, including folk who had worked for/with Fauci. The certainty we’re libs at heart, thought discussion of small pox vaccine for hcw who would be on the front lines of a bio attack was right wing propaganda and not a serious threat.
      Hard to know when people are naively following their biases and not thinking hard, or whether they are “in on it”; they can’t all be in on it without everyone being in on it.
      Spouse had Covid early, first patient in NH diagnosed on a Tuesday, spouse with fever, headache, fatigue o. Friday night, hospitalized on day 10 when starting getting hypoxia, but did ok out in a few days with no respirator.
      Had enrolled in an “early trt”protocol out of Univ Minn, hcq or placebo starting day 4…presumably for logistics of getting meds or placebo to patients across the country…day 4 is Not “early trt” for influenza, studies by design would miss early effectiveness. I mentioned this in conversation to old friend/ colleague from the med center, he kind of shrugged his shoulders and said “Well, all kinds of people are doing all kinds of things”. I find it hard to believe he was in on some kind of grand scheme to hide the effectiveness of hcq, but just swayed by bias and wasn’t that devoted to that clinical problem.
      As far as what is a vaccine- inactivated organisms that provide proteins to react to are common, the mRNA is a novel way of providing the protein. (I certainly wasn’t one of the many million first inoculated). I can see it described as an attempted vaccine of limited effectiveness that does help modify the disease n people at high risk- if indeed it does those things. I am inclined to think that the powers that be simply can’t admit being wrong and double down. A plot to damage the populace? At what level is this known and planned? Fauci? WHO? Somebody with a gun to Fauci’s head?
      There has been a conspiracy of evil and against truth since Adam and Eve, I guess the questions are how active and coordinated are the human players, and what to do about it. The article is right in line with the Don Lemon story, demonize all of us who don’t march in lock step (“Right here in America, wait until it happens to you..” the song from the 60’s went).
      Too many people are still talking falsely and the hour seems past getting late
      I think learning to live in the wilderness and count on manna or Door Dash via raven will be the eventual end.

        MDP in reply to MDP. | July 15, 2022 at 3:33 pm

        There certainly are a lot of things that don’t make sense, the whole issue of a respiratory pandemic was address by d a Henderson and others several times before Covid, and nobody said “the science “ advocated what was done.
        When Obama and company did not replenish the stockpile of supplies after the flu of 2009, was that purposeful or simply sloppy and incompetent?
        Up until 5-10 years ago “the science” clearly said that children with gender dyspho-ia be treated with benign neglect and 90% grow out of it- that’s Hopkins and Toronto children’s. Is there a cabal of individuals actively overthrowing what was known in unison, or “the spirit of the age” driving people mad, or what?

Here in LA County, the ghoulish fake doctor Ferrera is about to re-instate the indoor mask mandate because hospital patients are testing positive for the new variants (from new testing procedures I’ll bet). NONE of them are in the hospital because of Covid nor have symptoms. The hospitals are not being over-run. And most of these people are vaxxed. Pure evil.

If these idiots need a shut-down for every election, just do more testing at hospitals. Infuriating.

So if COVID is still a national health emergency, I suppose that Title 42 expulsions are still necessary. What? They aren’t? If they aren’t then THERE IS NO NATIONAL HEALTH EMERGENCY.

Suppose that the CCP has intended for years to unleash a real pandemic in support of some great military adventure, several years in the future. Not some COVID nonsense, but the real thing – a virus that kills >>half of those infected. One does not do something like that cold. Fighting a biowar requires practice. Lots of practice to learn how to keep the agent out of your own country and stop its spread when it does get in. Practice and experience for millions of troops and police and every other government function that keeps society working. Trial and error to figure out what works and what doesn’t. How would they do this? They would do a dry run – release a mild virus that was just dangerous enough to cause some panic and make containment measures plausible. And they would keep those measures up as the virus mutated and became both more contagious and less dangerous, as the rest of world came to accept it as the new normal. Just ask yourself – would China have done anything differently from what they did? Would they be doing anything different now?
