“The money (never) stops here”


Joe Biden is the owner of the US COVID-19 pandemic.

Biden ran for president promising to federalize the US response to COVID: “I will,” he said, “act to take control of the virus” – “day one”, nothing less.

In September 2020, Biden accused Trump of being personally responsible for 200,000 COVID deaths (at the time): “If the president had done his job… from the start, everyone would still be alive.

In mid-October, candidate Biden tweeted, “We are eight months away from this pandemic, and Donald Trump still does not have a plan to get this virus under control. I do.”

In a debate, Biden said: “Whoever is responsible for so many deaths should not remain President of the United States …”

Four days before the election, Biden announced, “I’m not going to shut down the country. I’m not going to shut down the economy. I will stop the virus.

In short, Biden’s campaign cynically politicized COVID to garner votes and, equally important, capitalized on COVID restrictions to allow a pissed off candidate to (no) campaign from the basement of his area mansion from Wilmington. Both gadgets worked.

Now on to his December 27, 2021 online meeting with state governors in which President (ish) Biden admitted failure: “There is no federal solution. [COVID] is resolved at the state level.

Immediately after this cowardly attempt to shirk the responsibilities he suspended from his predecessor, Biden fled to his luxurious Delaware beach house for photo ops with a new puppy.

What didn’t go well?

As President, Biden has benefited from COVID therapies developed over nearly a year of experience and President Trump‘s Operation Warp Speed ​​vaccine initiative.

In office, Biden made vaccination mandatory for federal employees, employees of companies doing business with the federal government, and he ordered the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to apply vaccinations to all companies employing more than 100 people. Biden himself was fully vaccinated before opening day.

Nonetheless, there were more deaths from COVID in Biden’s first ten months in office – with vaccines available – than throughout 2020, most without vaccines.

As of December 31, 2021, deaths from a U.S. pandemic exceeded 820,000, more than half of which – applying his own campaign rhetoric – was Joe Biden’s personal responsibility.

Ironically, during the campaign, Biden and his running mate expressed doubts about the safety of Operation Warp Speed ​​products. Kamala Harris has said she will not be taking a “Trump” vaccine.

Once in office, however, both dismissed public concerns about the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Biden even called the vaccination a “patriotic duty.”

In fact, as vaccinations increased and COVID case / death rates declined, Biden opportunistically “appropriated” and, on July 4, boastfully predicted “our independence from of a deadly virus ”.

Whoops…!

Plagued by COVID variants, Biden / Harris “didn’t see it coming” and a shortage of COVID test kits Biden swore but failed to correct, on December 27 an ineffective president officially turned surrendered, washed his hands – he thinks – of COVID, and tried to avoid blame by blaming fifty governors, more than half of whom are Republicans.

Belatedly realizing that his vaccine mandates have caused real problems – among them, staff shortages in essential services, including first responders, the trucking industry and healthcare – Joe struggles to escape judgment by telling America that the virus must be “resolved at the state level.” “

Americans aren’t supposed to notice that Biden’s improvised thinking / speaking skills are … to put it mildly … weakened, so the assistants rejected the press pool before Joe (his staff, really) answered questions. governors.

Biden managers are desperate for a COVID exit strategy, so they are trying to offload the blame / responsibility onto the States while claiming that Joe never made any commitments he didn’t keep.

It won’t work. America knows Biden smeared his predecessor, made empty promises, claimed credit for progress made before he took office and blamed his failures on governors before taking another vacation.

COVID has mutated; her symptoms are milder, but they don’t go away. In two years, smart officials have learned that living with the virus means protecting vulnerable citizens, prioritizing therapies, providing vaccines to consenting recipients, and avoiding the aftermath of shutdowns / mask warrants that have already proven ineffective in stopping – or even slow down – the spread of COVID.

Certainly, some dense and / or proto-fascist governors and mayors, mostly Democrats, will continue to issue / attempt to enforce arbitrary COVID warrants. They will also fail.

Meanwhile, the president’s negative approval ratings will plummet as the United States keeps Joe Biden at the standard he set in 2020: “Anyone … responsible for so many deaths should not remain president of the United States. United States… “
