We are now in the throes of full-scale national panic over the newest variant of the Covid virus: the Xi variant.  Oh, excuse me.  I mean the Omicron variant.  We had to skip over the next portion of the Greek alphabet to Omicron to avoid making the head of the murderous Chinese Communist Party sad.  As all right–left–thinking people know, even enforcing woke orthodoxy is nothing compared to appeasing Communist tyrants, or maybe it’s pretty much the same thing?

Let’s keep in mind the general progression of viral diseases.  Once the pandemic-causing virus strain begins to wane, various mutations occur.  They tend to be more contagious, but far less deadly.

Covid is, like various strains of the flu, always going to be with us.  Some people, mostly the aged or people already weakened by other diseases, are going to succumb, others are going to suffer various degrees of symptoms, but are going to recover, and life, suffused with viruses and bacteria, goes on.  Despite what decrepit dimwits like Joe Biden would tell us, we are not going to wipe out Covid or any other virus.  We simply lack the knowledge and technology to banish this virus.

The “vaccines” thus far developed are not, in fact, vaccines.  They do not provide immunity from infection, but merely lessen the severity of illness, and yes indeed, the vaccinated can catch, and spread, the virus, therefore Biden’s continuing whining about Covid being spread by the unvaccinated is nonsense, and has nothing whatever to do with science, which we are now told is actually the person of the mendacious troll, Dr. Fauci.

Dr. Angelique Coetzee

With this in mind, why do Bidenites continue to try to force everyone and their dog to be vaccinated, despite the indisputable fact natural immunity does confer the protection from infection current vaccines do not?  I’ll explain shortly, but first, let’s see what Dr. Angelique Coetzee has to say:

As chair of the South African Medical Association and a GP of 33 years’ standing, I have seen a lot over my medical career.

But nothing has prepared me for the extraordinary global reaction that met my announcement this week that I had seen a young man in my surgery who had a case of Covid that turned out to be the Omicron variant.

This version of the virus had been circulating in southern Africa for some time, having been previously identified in Botswana.

But given my public-facing role, by announcing its presence in my own patient, I unwittingly brought it to global attention.

Quite simply, I have been stunned at the response – and especially from Britain.

And let me be clear: nothing I have seen about this new variant warrants the extreme action the UK government has taken in response to it.

No one here in South Africa is known to have been hospitalised with the Omicron variant, nor is anyone here believed to have fallen seriously ill with it.]skip]

The simple truth is: we don’t know yet anywhere near enough about Omicron to make such judgments or to impose such policies.

Because Dr. Coetzee is not running about, screaming, with her hair on fire, she’s obviously anti-science.  Clearly, she, unlike Dr. Fauci, is not science.

In South Africa, we’ve retained a sense of perspective. We’ve had no new regulations or talk of lockdowns because we’re waiting to see what the variant actually means.

We’ve also become accustomed here to new Covid variants emerging. So when our scientists confirmed the discovery of yet another, nobody made a huge thing of it. Many people didn’t even notice.

But after Britain heard about it, the global picture started to change.[skip]

If, as some evidence suggests, Omicron turns out to be a fast-spreading virus with mostly mild symptoms for the majority of the people who catch it, that would be a useful step on the road to herd immunity.

We’ll learn in the next two weeks if that’s the case.

That sounds eminently reasonable, so of course, it must be ignored.

The worst situation – of course – would be a fast-spreading virus with severe infections. But that’s not where we are at the moment.

Science denier!  SCIENCE DENIER!!!

Here in South Africa, what I and my GP colleagues are seeing doesn’t in any way warrant the knee-jerk reaction we’ve seen from the UK.

For one thing, we’re not – at least for now – treating patients who are severely ill.

Take my first Omicron case, the young man I mentioned earlier. It didn’t occur to him that he had Covid: he thought he’d had too much sun after working outside. After he tested positive, so did his wife and four-month-old baby.

So far, the patients who’ve tested positive for Omicron here have been mainly young men – a mixture of vaccinated and unvaccinated (though, in our statistics, ‘unvaccinated’ can also mean ‘single-vaccinated’).

Only yesterday, I saw five more patients who had tested positive for the new variant. They all had a very mild illness.[skip]

But the reality is that Covid is something we have to learn to live with. Look after yourself and get your vaccines. Above all, don’t panic – and that goes for governments as well.

“Covid is something we have to learn to live with.”  Good advice, particularly the part about not panicking.  Perhaps we could, instead of destroying our economy and innumerable lives, instead of hindering the education of our children, instead of obliterating fundamental liberties, we might focus on developing treatments for a disease we know is going to be around pretty much forever.  And by the way, how serious is the spread of this disease in America? 

A person in California became the first in the U.S. to have an identified case of the COVID-19 omicron variant, the White House announced Wednesday as scientists continue to study the risks posed by the new strain of the virus.

‘This is the first case of COVID-19 caused by the omicron variant detected in the United States,’ Dr. Anthony Fauci said at the White House. He said the person was a traveler who returned from South Africa on Nov. 22 and tested positive on Nov. 29.

Oh my God!  ONE CASE!!!  We’re all gonna die!  What USA Today, and Fauci, are not telling us, is as in South Africa, the very few cases discovered world wide are presenting with very mild symptoms.

The announcement of the first U.S. case comes before President Joe Biden plans to outline his strategy on Thursday to combat the virus over the winter. Biden has tried to quell alarm over the omicron variant, saying it was a cause for concern but ‘not a cause for panic.’

Uh-huh.  Which is why they’re panicking.

Biden and public health officials have grown more urgent in their pleas for more Americans to get vaccinated — and for those who have been vaccinated to get booster shots to maximize their protection against the virus.

But what about the rest of this hemisphere?  Surely there are millions of cases, and we’re all gonna die?

Canada’s health minister says the country’s first two cases of omicron were found in Ontario after two individuals who had recently traveled from Nigeria tested positive.

So three known cases in the US and Canada.  Maybe we’re not all gonna die?  To be fair, I’m sure by the time this article is posted, more cases will have been found, but that’s to be expected.  It’s a virus.

What’s happening here?  We know the vaccines aren’t vaccines.  They don’t provide immunity.  Vaccinated people get, and spread, the virus.  The only way they differ from the unvaccinated is if they are infected or re-infected, they tend to have less severe symptoms.  Therefore, the unvaccinated are no danger to the vaccinated, and the unvaccinated, who have had and recovered from the disease, are in the best shape of all: they have natural immunity.  Biden’s claim the unvaccinated are somehow dangerous is anything but scientific.

We also know there are going to be many mutated strains of the virus, and we have no idea whether current vaccines, or any that may eventually be developed, will have any real effect on them, just as yearly flu vaccines do not provide universal protection against every possible strain of the flu.We have never experienced a response to a virus like that of Covid, and it’s now clear to sane people it was a political, rather than, medical response.  It gave D/S/Cs the excuse they needed to enable massive election fraud.  It worked for them in 2020, and they were able to place an elderly man who was not too bright to being with, and was clearly suffering from progressive dementia, in the White House.  And no, his condition has not improved.

It’s all about power, and D/S/Cs are not going to give it up without a fight.  They rode Covid into the White House, and now that the public sees them for what they are, and is poised to sweep them out of power in 2022, they’re desperate.  Could the Omicron variant be the new pandemic that allows them to once again rig the 2022 elections?  Obviously they’re no longer depending on the Delta variant.  That’s their story and they’re going to do everything they can to stick to it.

Masking, social distancing, bankrupting businesses, shutting down schools and our economy didn’t work.  These measures could never work, but our self-imagined elite imposed them anyway.  The result?  Far more Americans have died under Joe Biden than under Donald Trump.  Florida, with no such restrictions, has the lowest Covid infection rate in the nation.  So what do our betters plan to do?  Impose the same measures—and more–that didn’t work the first time. Albert Einstein said it well:

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Joe Biden didn’t say it well:

I’ve seen more — (laughs) — of Dr. Fauci than my wife. We kid each other, but — (laughter) — they look — who’s President? Fauci. (Laughter.)

But all kidding aside, I sincerely mean it.

Will a never-ending pandemic panic over an illness that is apparently less debilitating than the common cold or flu destroy our economy, our national identity and security, and kill untold millions?

How can we tell our government doesn’t give a damn about public health, about the American people?  How can we tell this is all about control and power?  Besides this, I mean:

All the lockdowns, masks, vaccination mandates, all of it applies only to citizens.  Illegal immigrants, a million plus thus far—that we know of—are home free and transported all over the country at taxpayer expense.  This includes more than 80,000 unvetted Afghans—thus far–we can’t identify.  They’re exempt; we’re not.

Delta, Omicron, there are plenty of letters left in the Greek alphabet, easily enough to last through 2024 and beyond.  We’ve already skipped over the one that might annoy the Chinese.  Oh.  That might also be an indicator about the priorities of our government, might it not?
