Cenk Uygur’s point that Biden could/should take “strong action” via implementing lockdowns lift’s the veil on the left’s embrace of government authority. Uygur’s attitude is essentially, “It’s within Biden’s purview to implement vaccine mandates, and if you still refuse, he can just lock you down. So, just shut your mouth and do whatever your government tells you to do.” It’s also interesting that Uygur continues with this mentality even after Biden himself confessed this week that there is no federal solution to the virus.
Just as there is a crack-up boom in the final stage of a financial crisis, there is a climactic surge of hysteria in the Covid-19 war against Western Civ. Now, Dr. Anthony Fauci is pushing proof-of-vaxx for US air travel because, “[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…”
Vice President Harris told America that “We didn’t see Delta coming,” and “We didn’t see Omicron coming.” Harris’s statement is even more damning when one recalls that, in January of this year, Biden’s then nominee for Surgeon General (who now holds the office) Vivek Murthy told ABC News, “The virus is basically telling us that it’s going to continue to change and we’ve got to be ready for it.”
The now-notorious Chinese real estate giant Evergrande missed the coupon payments on its bonds the other day. Evergrande builds sixty-story apartment towers made (mostly) of sand. Somehow, the bag-holders even in China, where buying real-estate has enjoyed the rush of novelty in recent years, begin to scent the odor of failure in that bloated corpus of fraud.
Things have changed greatly since Covid first became a thing in late 2019 and early 2020. While SARS had been around for many years prior, this new form took a lot of people by surprise. It provided an excuse to try a lot of new things both medical and political. On the medical side, it provided an opportunity to try an entirely new approach to rapid development of a vaccine, one that “taught” the body to produce an antigen to which the body’s own immune system would react.
If we all look at Covid and its variants logically, we’ll inevitably conclude that we don’t need mask and/or vaccine mandates. We’ll figure out that we don’t need to shut down schools again and we don’t need to grant sweeping powers to overzealous Democratic governors. And most importantly, if we’re calm and reasonable in how we react to Omicron, we’ll conclude that we don’t need to spend another trillion dollars on some “relief” bill.
In Australia, “New South Wales state authorities reported that two travelers from South Africa to Sydney had become Australia’s first omicron cases. Both were fully vaccinated, showed no symptoms.” A person in San Francisco was reported to have traveled from South Africa, had mild symptoms and had been vaccinated. Interestingly, officials said they had contacted everyone who had close contact with the person and they had all tested negative.
