It’s Finally Over: U.S. Slated to End Covid Emergency Declarations on May 11
Nearly 6 months after Biden initially said the pandemic was over on “60 minutes”.
In September 2022, Biden declared the pandemic was over on the CBS show “60 Minutes”.
But apparently, it wasn’t over. The end date is now slated for May 11.
…Biden’s administration on Monday said it will end COVID-19 emergency declarations on May 11, nearly three years after the United States imposed sweeping pandemic measures to curb the spread of the illness.
The COVID-19 national emergency and public health emergency (PHE) were put in place in 2020 by then-President Donald Trump. Biden has repeatedly extended the measures, which allow millions of Americans to receive free tests, vaccines and treatments.
The White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said in a statement the declarations, which were set to expire in the coming months, would be extended again until May 11 and then terminated.
“This wind-down would align with the Administration’s previous commitments to give at least 60 days’ notice prior to termination of the PHE,” OMB said in an administration policy statement.
Quite frankly, covid has stopped being a fear-inducing condition for some time. New York Post columnist John Podhoretz explains the likely real behind the continuing extension.
… This is not about an emergency, and it hasn’t been for more than a year. This is about the people who have actually gained things from the emergency and who need to be weaned off the unhealthy and society-killing benefits they have reaped since March 2020.
Said the White House: “An abrupt end to the emergency declarations would create wide-ranging chaos and uncertainty throughout the health care system — for states, for hospitals and doctors’ offices, and, most importantly, for tens of millions of Americans.”
I’m sorry, but this is a demented series of claims. “Tens of millions of Americans” do not equal 330 million Americans, which is the actual population of the country. Perhaps they will find the new dispensation more difficult. But living under the COVID administration has made life difficult for everyone.
I will point out that demented is on-brand for Biden.
Finally, under Republican leadership, the House voted to pass a bill that would have ended work-from-home for up to nearly a million federal employees on Wednesday.
The bills passed on a mostly party line vote – three Democrats joined all but one Republican in voting for the bill. The final tally was 221-206.
The Republican who voted against the bill was Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla. The three Democrats who voted for it were Reps. Josh Harder, D-Calif., Kim Schrier, D-Wisc., and Susan Wild, D-Pa.
The Stopping Home Office Work’s Unproductive Problems (SHOW UP) Act now heads to the Senate, where it is unlikely to come up for a vote under Democrat control.
Perhaps we should be grateful that the measure won’t pass, and our bureaucratic state will be less productive regarding the damage it can do.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Some new crisis will come along.
It’s a looooooooooooong way to May 11.
Will give states like NY time to complete their own tyrannical systems that will function autonomously. Biden did say he wanted to give states time to react.
Not to mention states’ rights.
I declared it done way back when they pulled this bullschiff. It was fake then and it’s still fake today.
I didn’t need to reopen because I never shut down.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Don’t worry, May is well after the mud season in Ukraine so we will have WWIII by then thanks to all those pesky tanks sent over to the US testing grounds. They will NEVER let go of the scamdemic power they got. Never.
Never fear. The COVID state of emergency is far from the only state of emergency in play at the moment. The last time that the USA was NOT under ANY state of emergency was 1979.
“It’s Finally Over: U.S. Slated to End Covid Emergency Declarations on May 11”
It may not be over. Or, it may be over sooner than that, depending on what “it” you’re talking about.
From today’s constituent newsletter from Paul Gosar:
“John Podhoretz explains the likely real behind the continuing extension.”
Gosar spoke much more plainly:
“The Stopping Home Office Work’s Unproductive Problems (SHOW UP) Act”
If the Founders could see how much time their descendants waste today thinking up cleverly cringeworthy names for their hastily-drafted, loophole-ridden legislation, the dueling grounds would be overbooked for months.
“Mr. Biden’s unwillingness to let go of power and force Americans to live under extreme measures depriving us of our freedoms is the mark of a tyrant….”
I’d put it another way: “Mr. Biden’s unwillingness to let go of power is the mark of a man and his son who have committed several violations of US law in which the punishment is the death penalty.”
18 U.S.C. § 794 Espionage.
18 U.S.C. § 2381 Treason.
8 U.S.C. § 1342(B)(iv) Bringing in and harboring certain aliens resulting in death.
Legislation doesn’t go anywhere with a split congress. It’s irrelevant. The House has 3 jobs this term:
(1) block Democratic bills coming from the Senate
(2) cut off money to Democratic waste and warmongering
(3) investigate Democrats
These are things it can do. It cannot expect to pass legislation.
Undetermined. As Gosar reported, the bill passed the House with bipartisan support. Who knows, perhaps the horses in the Senate will learn to sing.
(The Hill’s first report was “pure party-line vote.” Since then, someone there apparently committed some unauthorized journalism, and they are now reporting the correction that “Eleven Democrats voted with Republicans in supporting the measure.”)
The people in the back have to remind everyone who is actually in charge.
Yes, that’s how you end a pandemic-by announcing three ends at a future date certain.
This entire thing was a sham.
The establishment don’t get that for most of us Covid is like the crazy ex girlfriend you put out of your mind who suddenly shows up again uninvited.
It’s time more people understand what “crazy girlfriends” actually are: malignant narcissists. (That goes for “crazy boyfriends” as well).
Forewarned is forearmed:
Did he actually specify May 11th of what year?
Obviously, May 11th is the start of nuclear war with Russia season. Stolen elections have consequences.
It’s not over until the Supreme Court says its over!!!
Yes, I will wait until I hear Kagan or the wide latina singing.
Thank God, we still have the climate emergency.
Wanna bet that a human transmissible Bird Flu emergency replaces the COVID emergency?
I won’t take that bet, as it’s already being telegraphed by the left as the next crisis-du-jour.
And yet Biden said the emergency declaration would end when SCOTUS makes it end….hmmmm
Don’t blame Brandon. He still thinks Pelosi is covering for him in the House, keeping them from voting on extending or terminating his emergencies. But those days are gone, my friend.
