The Covid and Climate Change scams are alike in many ways, but perhaps no more so than this: their proponents don’t act like they believe what they’re selling.  Climate change apostles fly everywhere on private jets, and Covid harridans don’t wear masks whenever they think no one is watching.  With that in mind, let’s examine recent developments on the Covid front.

Things aren’t looking good for Temporary President Biden: 

Just 36 percent of registered voters approve of President Joe Biden’s job performance, Civiqs polling revealed Sunday.

That’s a new low.  Some suggest Trump’s polling was in the same neighborhood, but he had the entire D/S/C establishment, including their media propaganda arm, most of the federal deep state and some of the Republican Party relentlessly hounding him even before his inauguration. D/S/Cs are now so desperate, they’re actually trying to claim the media has been harder on Biden than they were on Trump.  That’s not working out so well.  Take the link for the whole story on the polling, but consider this conclusion to the article:

Biden’s job performance is also negative in 45 states.

Only five states approve of Biden’s performance: California (45 – 44 percent), Hawaii (49 – 41 percent), Maryland (46 – 43 percent), Massachusetts (48 – 39 percent), and Vermont (53-36 percent).

Well, there are no surprises there.  And speaking of no surprises, how is Biden’s performance on Covid?

China is responsible for every American Covid death. But if you’re going to try to parse out blame to a particular president, at least get the simple math right. On Christmas Eve, CNN Newsroom fill-in host Boris Sanchez had some trouble doing that as he definitively claimed it was ‘fake news’ to accurately say that more Americans have been killed by Covid under President Biden than former President Trump.

Once again, take the link for the math, but when most of the D/S/C media is reporting the truth more have died on Biden’s watch, it’s rather hard to call it fake news.  To be fair, CNN has had a lot on its collective mind lately.  OK, so Joe did shut down the country and the economy, what else could go wrong?  Oh: Fauci.  Right:

Last year, Dr. Anthony Fauci publicly spoke out against the idea that eventual COVID vaccines would be mandated by the federal government, suggesting that the idea would be simply impossible. ‘If someone refuses the vaccine in the general public, then there’s nothing you can do about that. You cannot force someone to take a vaccine,’ he said back in August 2020.

As is the case with countless things that have come out of Fauci’s mouth, what he says and what he has planned were two entirely different things. He’s since aggressively pushed for COVID vaccine mandates, even for activities where he basically admits they won’t do anything to slow the spread of the virus, but will simply inconvenience people. ‘A vaccine requirement for a person getting on the plane is just another level of getting people to have a mechanism that would spur them to get vaccinated’ he admitted on Sunday’s episode of ABC’s This Week.

So we punish the Deplorables and further destroy the economy by further damaging the airline industry, and business in general–that’s the economy folks–to force people to get vaccinated or starve? Sounds like sound medical judgment to me.  Fauci has also recently said masking on airlines ought to be permanent.  But what about the “pandemic of the unvaccinated?”  That’s been good messaging, a real political winner, right?

But the problems with the ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’ message pre-date the variant that rendered it factually ludicrous. On September 16, one week after Biden reversed serial administration promises by announcing an employer vaccine mandate (while using language such as ‘We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us’), science writer Yasmin Tayag penned an Atlantic piece headlined “Stop Calling It a ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated.’

‘Bullying the unvaccinated into getting their shots isn’t going to work in the long run,’ Tayag predicted, in a piece surveying a field of study (behavioral science) to which the White House seems oblivious. ‘The way the mandates are being presented is driving a wedge between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. If the goal is to inoculate enough people to reach herd immunity, this approach may eventually backfire.’

It has backfired, largely because many, many completely vaccinated and even double boostered folks are becoming infected again.  To those who have been paying attention, this is no surprise.  The vaccines aren’t true vaccines.  They don’t confer immunity and prevent infection, just generally make the disease less serious when one gets if for the first time, or again, and even that benefit is not lasting.  It’s rather difficult to make the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” meme stick when its so blatantly, undeniably false.  Some media outlets are beginning to report the seasonal flu has somehow miraculously begun to infect people again!  Wherever could it have been?  On vacation?  Many are even reporting masks don’t work.  But what about quarantines?

Last week the narrative was ‘the winter of death’ is coming.  That effort didn’t faze anyone; the White House shifted messaging within days.

The latest public guidance from the Centers for Disease Control [full release here] gives the first impression of the narrative shift being laughable; however, when you go deeper into their motive a righteous sneer disappears quickly.

*First, the CDC is now saying the quarantine time for anyone vaccinated or unvaccinated and testing positive for COVID-19 is now changed from ten days to five days.  If you test positive for COVID-19, Omicron or any variant therein, you only need to be quarantined for 5 days.

*Secondly, the CDC is now saying anyone who has been vaccinated and ‘boosted’ who tests positive, does not need to quarantine at all.  ‘Individuals who have received their booster shot do not need to quarantine following an exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.’

Oh.  So maybe this new variant—can’t wait to find out all about the next one and how it gives D/S/Cs permanent control over everything and everyone—isn’t all that deadly after all?  Which brings us full circle to Joe’s recent brain bomb, delivered during a virtual meeting with Governors:

We got to beat it back before we shut it down. Look, it’s going to take time worldwide. In order to be COVID, we have to shut it down worldwide,’ he said as he announced new federal measures to beat back the scourge.

Those “new federal measures” would be no federal measures:

‘Look, there is no federal solution,’ Biden said in response to a question from Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. ‘This gets solved at the state level.’

‘I’m looking at Governor Sununu [New Hampshire],’ Biden continued, ‘on the board here. He talks about that a lot. And then ultimately it gets down to where the rubber meets the road and that’s where the patient is in need of help, or preventing the need for help.’

Keep in mind, gentle readers, the Government has a January 7 Supreme Court date where they’re going to be arguing for the imposition of a variety of nationwide federal mandates, opposed by many state attorney’s general.  If Covid can’t be solved by the Federal Government, if states are where “the rubber meets the road,” and it must be true because Joe said so, shouldn’t the DOJ admit the government had no case, and rescind every mandate?  I somehow suspect the state AGs are going to be mentioning Biden’s declaration.

Of course they should, but one can only imagine the panic in the White House among Biden’s handlers and teleprompter writers/operators when he dropped that one.  That’s why they don’t let him out much, and don’t let him speak unscripted.  Let’s review what they had to say in the not so distant past:

And now let’s see what they’re saying after Joe made this particular gaffe, which in this case means actually telling the truth:

Ah.  In other words, the Harris/Biden/Whoever Administration—Joe Biden, Temporary President—is desperate to keep some role for themselves, so they’re pledging to do far, far less than Donald Trump did for the states?  Brilliant.  Here’s a bit more brilliance:

Fire thousands of health care professionals who served for two years, much of that time when no vaccine was available?  Fire them when we know the vaccine doesn’t prevent infection or transmission?  Just another Biden-caused disaster.  Even out here in Flyover Country, medical practices have almost entirely abandoned masking and all the other remnants of Covid theater.

Final Thoughts:

None of this is surprising.  Biden’s handlers were foolish to imagine they could deny actual science.  To be fair, however, they had every reason to believe their media propaganda arm would support whatever they said and did, would treat Fauci like a god and repeat every word he said, no matter how impossible and how much he contradicted himself, as revealed truth.  To be honest, they’ve pretty much been able to invent their own reality and force others to live in it up until recently.

Fortunately, reality has a way of asserting itself, and America isn’t so far sunk into the depths of socialism/communism that government can suppress it for long.  This virus, courtesy of the Chinese Communists, is behaving as all viruses do.  We do not have the technology to, as Joe promised, “shut down the virus.”  We can’t “shut down” any virus, and if Fauci and the rest of the federal health bureaucracy had any integrity, they would have been saying that long ago and focusing on, rather than suppressing, treatments.

Bidenites are in grave danger of slipping even more deeply into irrelevance.  They have to be panicking at the reality Americans, outside blue states and cities, aren’t buying pandemic panic any longer.  In fact, they’re not only ignoring federal mandates, they’re doing much worse: ignoring, even mocking them.

Without the eternal “emergency” powers Covid and its never-ending procession of variants provides, the 2022 mid-term elections promise to be even worse for D/S/Cs than they’re foreseeing and admitting.  If they can’t banish the Senate filibuster and pass their Eternal D/S/C Rule/Vote Fraud Act, even 2024 could be a sure loser.  If those annoying states get to set the agenda, if that damned Constitution gets to stand, D/S/Cs know they could be in the political wilderness for a very long time, and it couldn’t happen to worse people.

They’re goin’ down swinging, and thus far, they’re not hitting a thing.

UPDATE, 12-29-21, 1930 MT:  Uh-oh.  Dr. Rochelle Walensky of the CDC has accidentally admitted it was never about science and public health.  A massive gaffe—when a politician accidently tells the truth—in tweets:

Nor to me…

A 50% reduction and more reduction in isolation times?  This new learning amazes me!

As Orwell said, some animals are more equal than others, and as we’ve learned in the last few years, not all lives matter, and one can get in much trouble asserting they do.

No reason both options can’t be true…

Of course it was…

Sure, but only if we vote the right–left–way.  Voting otherwise means you want to kill everybody.  Here’s a scientific experiment we haven’t tried.  It couldn’t work worse than masks and all the rest:

Hmmm.  You don’t suppose this has anything to do with the rapidly approaching 2022 midterms, Joe Biden’s, and D/S/C’s approval ratings in general heading for negative numbers, and a country full of increasingly angry and restive Normal Americans, do you?  Nah.  That would be too cynical, but then again, Lily Tomlin said:

No matter how cynical I get, it’s impossible to keep up.
