In the video below, a Poynette (Wisconsin) High School teacher lambastes a vaccinated student for not wearing a mask.

As the student sits on the floor against a wall, she points her finger at him and shouts, “I don’t care if you’re vaccinated you little dink. I don’t want to get sick and die. There’s other people you can infect.”

The boy shrugs and says, “okay.”

“Just because you’re vaccinated. You know what? You’re not a special person around here. You should hear about how everybody talks about you around here.”

“I know how other people talk about me. I don’t care how people talk about me. Okay.”

“You’re a jerk. You’re a jerk. You need to have respect for other people in your life.”

“I do,” the student says.

“You’re not a big man on campus.”

Sounds to me like a conservative has just been born.

On Tuesday, the School District of Poynette’s Administrator Matthew Shappell issued the following statement on Facebook:

Dear Families,

The School District of Poynette is aware of an incident that occurred today, May 11th, involving a teacher and student at the Poynette High School. The District is initiating an investigation and the teacher involved has been put on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. The District contacted the parents and we are taking steps to provide the appropriate support for the student involved.

Thank you,

Matthew Shappell
District Administrator

This teacher should never be allowed anywhere near a classroom again.

Fort Campbell Commanding General Issues New Rules for Unvaccinated Soldiers

Fort Campbell’s Commanding Officer, Maj. Gen. McGee announced during a virtual town hall event on Tuesday night that there will be a different set of rules for soldiers who choose not to take the COVID-19 vaccine. Unvaccinated soldiers considering their summer travel plans should not “consider things business as usual,”

“It would be irresponsible of me to allow soldiers to travel unvaccinated throughout the United States and bring that back and have an impact on our soldiers, their families and our overall operational readiness. I’m sure that’s not gonna be a popular decision for some, and that’s quite alright,” McGee said.

According to an article in Clarksville Now, “McGee said he and his staff are considering a range of options, including limited range of travel and increased reporting requirements for soldiers; however, no final decisions have been made as to restrictions.”

“If you are a vaccinated soldier and you’ve received 2 vaccines, you’re at incredibly low risk of contracting the virus and bringing it back. You pose minimal to no risk,” said McGee. “For them, they’ll be able take leave unhindered and with no additional requirements. For those soldiers that choose, as is their right, to not take the vaccine, we will prudently apply measures of how we will make sure you are able to travel safely.”

I have heard of similar guidelines being issued at other Army posts.

COVID Cases Are Surging in Nation with Highest Percentage of Vaccinated People; Are Chinese Vaccines Inferior?

The island nation of Seychelles, where 62.2 percent of its 98,000 citizens have been vaccinated, is experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases. The government has closed schools and canceled sporting events to prevent further spread, according to a Bloomberg report.

Seychelles’ health minister, Peggy Vidot, told reporters on Tuesday, “Despite of all the exceptional efforts we are making, the Covid-19 situation in our country is critical right now, with many daily cases reported last week.”

Many of the vaccines administered so far were donated by the United Arab Emirates. “By April 12, 59 percent of the doses administered were Sinopharm vaccines and the rest were Covishield, a version of AstraZeneca Plc’s shot made under license in India.”

Data website Worldometers showed 612 active cases on April 27. One week later, the number is 1,068, an increase of 75 percent.

Bloomberg reports:

Of those cases, 84% are Seychellois and the rest are foreigners, Daniel Lucey, Clinical Professor of Medicine at Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, said in a blog post. Just under two thirds of those are either unvaccinated or have only had one dose, and the rest have had two doses, he said.

While data on genetic sequencing are not yet available for infections in April, the B.1.351 variant, first identified in South Africa late last year, was found in the Seychelles in February, he said. AstraZeneca’s vaccine appeared to be less effective against that variant in a study, and South Africa halted plans to use it.

A comparison between Sinopharm, Covishield, and unvaccinated infected persons” could be done using genetic sequencing and data on the severity of their infections, Lucey said. “Given the widespread international use of these two vaccines there are global implications to what is happening now in the Seychelles.”

It’s not surprising that unvaccinated people have been infected. But what about the remaining “just over a third” who had been fully vaccinated and still contracted the virus.

Bloomberg reports that after Seychelles, Israel, UAE and the UK have the highest vaccination rates per capita. While new cases in Israel are down 99 percent from the January high, and in the UK, they are down 96 percent, the number of new cases in the UAE still remains stubbornly high.

Israel is using the Pfizer vaccine and the UK is using Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca as vaccine sources.

On the other hand, we know that many of the doses administered in the UAE came from Sinopharm. And the UAE donated a large number of doses to Seychelles.

The New York Times published an article about Sinopharm’s vaccine last week. “In early 2020, the Beijing Institute of Biological Products created an inactivated coronavirus vaccine called BBIBP-CorV. Clinical trials run by the state-owned company Sinopharm showed that it had an efficacy rate of 79 percent. China approved the vaccine and soon began exporting it to other countries.”

According to a report in The Washington Post last month, the head of the Chinese CDC admitted the “efficacy of Chinese coronavirus vaccines is ‘not high’ and that they may require improvements, marking a rare admission from a government that has staked its international credibility on its doses.”

“The government has already distributed hundreds of millions of doses to other countries, even though the rollout has been dogged by questions over why Chinese pharmaceutical firms have not released detailed clinical trial data about the vaccines’ efficacy. China has struck deals to supply many of its allies and economic partners in the developing world and boasted that world leaders — including in Indonesia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates — have taken the shots.”

Clearly, I have no idea if China’s vaccines are effective or not. But if China is distributing inferior vaccines, especially after unleashing this plague on the world, that’s a problem. Perhaps not for China who will never take responsibility, but for those countries that trusted China in the first place.

It’s time for the world to hold China accountable. In the meantime, just to be on the safe side, those countries should use Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca as their sources for vaccines.

FBI Issues Warning Not to Buy or Make Vaccine Card or Misrepresent Your Status, You May Be ‘Breaking the Law’

There was a time when the FBI commanded Americans’ utmost respect. That was prior to 2016 when they actively participated in a plan to sabotage the candidacy of Donald Trump and following his unexpected victory, his presidency. At every turn, top FBI officials sought to destroy President Donald Trump. I don’t need to compile a list, because their complicity is well known and speaks for itself.

Last week, the FBI issued a public service announcement warning U.S. citizens not to buy or make vaccine cards or misrepresent their COVID-19 vaccination status. The agency cautioned they may be breaking the law if they do so.

The FBI is, of course, referring to the recent Biden Administration proposal that citizens be issued a “vaccine passport” so they can travel freely throughout the country.

The requirement of a “vaccine passport,” which would indicate whether or not a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19 or alternatively tested negative within a stipulated time frame, is a violation of our civil rights. It’s just one more of the many travesties conjured up by Democratic politicians eager to wield their emergency powers against their constituents.

This proposal triggered immediate outrage from conservatives who are fed up with the government’s overreach and the loss of our civil rights in the name of COVID-19.

According to a weekend article in The New York Times, “the Biden administration has made clear that it will neither issue nor require the passports,”

So, why would the nation’s premier law enforcement agency try to enforce this? Why did this warrant a warning about breaking the law? It’s not even a law. It’s a mere proposal and a deeply unpopular and divisive one at that.

Is it any wonder that so many red state governors vehemently oppose vaccine passports?

On Friday, Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick DeSantis issued an executive order “prohibiting the use of so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports. The Legislature is working on making permanent these protections for Floridians and I look forward to signing them into law soon.” The order can be viewed here.

The document states that vaccination records are “private health information which should not be shared by mandate.” In addition, they “reduce individual freedom and harm patient privacy.”

The order also states that businesses in Florida are “prohibited from requiring patrons or customers to provide any documentation” about their COVID-19 vaccination status.

All I know is that we the people need to stand up and fight against the tyranny the Biden Administration is trying to thrust upon us. We must do this loudly and often.

Last week, the Democratic House candidate from IA-02 who lost the election to her Republican opponent by six points withdrew her bid to have the election overturned by a Democrat controlled House committee. The candidate, Rita Hart, had the full support of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She didn’t withdraw because she realized it was wrong to try to steal a seat in Congress. Hart withdrew because the “disinformation campaign from the right wing media” became intolerable to her.

From that, we must learn a larger lesson. If we’re loud enough and persistent enough, we can make a difference.

Memo to the FBI:  Why don’t you get your own house in order, maybe catch a few real criminals before you try circulating something so tone-deaf, unwelcome and unnecessary like this again.

There’s One Thing that Scares Robert F. Kennedy Jr. More than COVID, That’s Losing his Constitutional Rights

Advertisements

I’ve never been a fan of the Kennedy family.

However, I’ve just watched an hour-long podcast of a conversation between Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and liberal author Naomi Wolf, a one-time adviser to former President Bill Clinton, that I found riveting. And “riveting” is not a word I use lightly.

Kennedy’s podcast, called “Truth,” was recorded earlier this week. It can be viewed here.

Recounting an experience he’d had at a recent political rally in Berlin, Kennedy said, “I was shaking hands and I wasn’t wearing a mask. Nobody was. There were a million people there and no one was wearing a mask. An NBC crew came up and said, ‘Aren’t you scared of getting the coronavirus?’ I said, ‘There’s something I’m more fearful of.’ They asked, ‘Like what?’ ‘Like losing my constitutional rights.'”

He continued, “The American Revolution took place because you had people who were willing to die for the Constitution. Not lose their rights. The Constitution was not written for easy times or popular speech. … It was built for emergencies and to protect the speech that was unpopular, that was dissenting government policies. … For hundreds of years, our government protected that right religiously. You get to say things that offend other people.”

Recalling the occasion when a group of neo-Nazis demanded the right to march in Skokie, Illinois in 1978, Kennedy said, “Most liberals in this country came down on the right side of that.” Although we may not like the ideas they espouse, he feels strongly that “we need to fight for these groups to be able to express themselves. We need to win our issues in the marketplace, on debate and ideas, and not by silencing people.”

“Especially when it comes to medical issues, censorship has no place. Authoritarianism has no place.”

Both Wolf and Kennedy have lost friends over the past year because they’ve chosen to speak out against the “encroaching tyranny” that threatens to engulf our once (relatively) free society.

Wolf sees a growing “biofascism” and said “it’s led by Dems. I wish it wasn’t true.”

“The tech bros and Pharma to some extent have close ties with Democrats. … This cabal is investing new powers at the state level and at the federal level so that under the guise of a medical emergency, they can continue to burn and shred our Constitution.”

Elaborating on this point, Wolf said, “You have to not have human community. You have to give up freedom to assemble. You have to give up freedom to worship. You have to give up property rights. You get to watch small businesses get crushed. People selling their assets at fire sales. You have to watch a massive transfer of wealth. And you have to do all of that because the fear of this virus is so pervasive.”

“This narrative has been so unscientifically sold. I’m not surprised that people I love who only read the New York Times and listen to NPR believe this. It’s breaking my heart. The fear is so great that people give up all their rights in order to be safe from the fear.”

The truly fascinating – and terrifying – part of their  discussion addressed the collaboration, the “giant tangle of corruption” between the government, wealthy businessmen like Bill Gates and big corporations, specifically Big Tech and the pharmaceutical companies.

Certainly the Kennedy family is wealthy, but their fortune is dwarfed by those of the Big Tech oligarchs. Kennedy told Wolf to imagine the lawsuits he could file and the friends he could buy with a billion dollars and then multiply that by 133 to understand the influence of Bill Gates.

Gates, according to Kennedy, has used his wealth to wield enormous power. Specifically, he claimed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has “neutralized once-independent media including The Guardian, NPR and public television through financial gifts.”

There’s been a trillion dollar transfer of wealth over the last year. “It is not the pandemic that’s caused it, it’s the lockdown.” Millions of small businesses have gone bankrupt and “60 percent of black-owned businesses will never reopen.”

The corruption between government health agencies and pharmaceutical companies runs deep, according to Kennedy. He cited many examples.

(Note: I have not verified this information.)

In 2020, 1.8 millon people in the world died from the coronavirus. Kennedy compared this figure to the 1.6 million people who die annually from tuberculosis. “It’s an airborne respiratory infection. Why aren’t we having lockdowns?” he asked rhetorically. “Because there’s already a vaccine and it costs two dollars a shot and there’s no patent on it and nobody can make money.”

On the other hand, (inaudible, however, based on the context, I believe this was a reference to patents on high profit drugs) $48 billion and Bill Gates owns half of them and Tony Fauci, whose agency owns the premier ones. NIAID [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] owns half the patent for the Moderna vaccine. Six of Tony Fauci’s [Director of NIAID] top aides own royalties to that. … So, people in Fauci’s agency collect $150,000 in royalties on that vaccine.”

The government put a $150,000 cap on the amount these officials can earn from royalties. There had been no cap prior to 2002.

At that time, Kennedy said, an HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) investigation found that Fauci had prevented information on very serious side effects from a drug called Interleukin 2 from being included in the product brochures. It turned out that Fauci owned the patent for the drug. Up until 2002, he was allowed to collect unlimited royalties. He agreed as a result of that investigation, informally … that he would give any money he made in royalties to charity. To Kennedy’s knowledge, nobody ever followed up on it.

He called Fauci the J. Edgar Hoover of public health. “He’s been there for 50 years and the only way that you last 50 years is by being in the tank with Pharma.”

“Fauci controls global medical policy and as we have seen,” he said. “It gives him more power than any politician in history. He shut down the global economy.”

The CDC owns 58 patents and Kennedy estimated that NIAID owns over one thousand.

“Money is currency for these people, but it’s the currency of power. It purchases power over other human beings.”

Wolf described what happens to people when they accumulate tremendous power. “Their own weird psyche starts to get played out on populations. Like you see it with Stalin, you see it with Mao, and now we’re really seeing it again. I’ve seen so many financial ties between Fauci and Bill Gates.”

The two went into some depth on the massive influence that Gates has been able to purchase with his enormous wealth.

Finally, they addressed the strategies and the goals of this cabal of elites. Kennedy explained that “one of the strategies, clearly, of the totalitarian forces is to keep us all divided. … It’s called the bourbon strategy, the strategy that was used in the old South to divide poor people from each other to keep the plantation owners in power.”

Wolf has studied the “closings of democracies.” She spoke about this in an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show last month.

I’ve been writing…for months and months about what I see as the terrible crisis that we’re in, that we have to recognize. Under the guise of a real medical pandemic, we’re really moving into a coup situation, a police state situation and that’s not a partisan thing, That, as you say, that transcends everything you and I might agree or disagree on that should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution. We’re absolutely moving into what I call step 10.

I wrote a book in which I pointed out there were 10 steps that would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy. Whether they’re on the left or the right they always do the same 10 things and now we’re at something I never thought I’d see in my lifetime. … It is step 10 and that’s the suspension of the rule of law, that’s when you start to be a police state and we’re here, there’s no way around it.

… once I realized New York State had emergency powers, I know from history that no one gives up emergency powers. They always drag it on and drag it on…

Nowhere in the Constitution does it say this can be suspended if there’s a bad disease…never has there been months and months and months of emergency powers when we weren’t fighting a war. 

It is not hyperbole to say this is an American Crisis.

The NY Post Editorial Board Lets the Cat Out of the Bag About Biden’s $1.9 Trillion COVID Bill

Advertisements

Last week, The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed written by Mark Makary, M.D., an epidemiologist and professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. It was entitled, “We’ll Have Herd Immunity by April.” Its lede informed us, “Covid cases have dropped 77% in six weeks. Experts should level with the public about the good news.”

Makary explains that the “natural immunity” of those who have had the virus is “far more common than can be measured by testing.” Specifically:

Testing has been capturing only from 10% to 25% of infections, depending on when during the pandemic someone got the virus. Applying a time-weighted case capture average of 1 in 6.5 to the cumulative 28 million confirmed cases would mean about 55% of Americans have natural immunity.

Now add people getting vaccinated. As of this week, 15% of Americans have received the vaccine, and the figure is rising fast. Former Food and Drug Commissioner Scott Gottlieb estimates 250 million doses will have been delivered to some 150 million people by the end of March.

There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection. As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.

“Some medical experts privately agreed with my prediction that there may be very little Covid-19 by April but suggested that I not to talk publicly about herd immunity because people might become complacent and fail to take precautions or might decline the vaccine. But scientists shouldn’t try to manipulate the public by hiding the truth.”

Makary is far from alone in his optimism. The New York Times published the results of a survey of 175 experts in early February who “largely agreed that it was safe for schools to be open to elementary students for full-time and in-person instruction now.”

So why are so many Biden Administration officials, including Biden himself and Dr. Fauci providing such pessimistic scenarios? Fauci is telling us we may be wearing masks through 2022, even those who’ve been vaccinated.

The NY Post Editorial Board explained it in a weekend editorial. Democrats want to pass the $1.9 trillion COVID spending bill. There’s very little in this bloated behemoth that will actually go toward helping everyday Americans cope with pandemic-related problems.

But there’s a whole hell of a lot in the bill that will help Democrats pass projects that have been on their radar for years. $1.9 trillion dollars is a massive amount of money. And it buys a lot of pork.

In an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” last week, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said, “This isn’t a coronavirus bill. This is a left-of-Lenin, neo-socialist wish list. He added that it was “chock-full of spending porn” that had nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic.

Obviously, if the end of the pandemic is within our grasp, there would be no need to pass it. That’s why Democrats are ignoring the good news.

From The NY Post Editorial Board:

…President Biden, after vowing the nation will have enough vaccine doses by July’s end to vaccinate every American, just said he only hopes for a return to normal by “next Christmas.” Huh?

“I don’t want to overpromise anything here,” “A year from now,” he told CNN, “I think that there’ll be significantly fewer people having to be socially distanced, having to wear a mask.” That’s not avoiding overpromising, as he claimed: It’s outright telling everyone to expect yet another year of economic and social devastation.

Biden’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci, says the worst of the pandemic “might be” behind us. Yet he’s also telling Americans they’ll need to wear masks (maybe two at a time) at least through 2022 — even if they get vaccinated.

This is absurd: Our leaders should be nonstop pushing reluctant Americans to get jabbed so we can all get on with our lives.

[…]

Hospitalizations and deaths keep dropping, even as variants have gained ground: Deaths dropped 20 percent these last two weeks. The UK variant predominates in Britain, Switzerland, Denmark and Israel — and all are also seeing cases dive.

[…]

…while America’s vaccination process has rolled out more slowly than it should’ve, it’s still moving inexorably along.

More than 13 percent of Americans have gotten at least one dose, and the majority are health-care workers or those in nursing homes or other high-risk settings.

Add to that the number of us estimated to have already been infected — 35 percent of Los Angeles County and more than half of Miami-Dade County, for example — and you can see why Johns Hopkins prof Marty Makary predicts we’ll have herd immunity by April.

And the most at-risk Americans have gained immunity. Data scientist Youyang Gu estimates that the number of “susceptible” Americans, those over 45 without immunity, has fallen from a third of the country at the start of the year to 10 percent or fewer now.

Cases in nursing homes fell more than 80 percent from late December to early February. When deaths spiked over the holidays, they actually fell at nursing homes.
[…]

Perhaps it’s just that normalcy makes it too hard to justify the rush to pass a $1.9 trillion “relief” bill filled with Democrats’ pet projects. We’d rather not think cynical politics is behind Biden’s gloom, but it’s hard to see any other reason he’s denying that the pandemic’s end is staring us in the face.

Just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to pass a COVID relief bill prior to the election for political reasons, the Biden Administration doesn’t want Americans to know that herd immunity and therefore the return to normalcy, is right around the corner.

The pandemic has been such a great gift to the Democratic Party, it will be hard for them to let it go.

Suddenly the Knives Are Out for Gov. Ron DeSantis; Two FL Democrats Call for Investigation

Advertisements

As expected, former President Donald Trump won the top spot in CPAC’s 2024 GOP presidential nomination poll with 55 percent of the vote. In a second poll, participants were asked whom they would vote for if Trump does not run. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was the runaway favorite winning 43 percent. In second place with 11 percent of the vote was South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, followed by Donald Trump Jr. with 8 percent. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas each received 7 percent.

The Florida governor is a pretty impressive guy and his strength in this poll was not a surprise. DeSantis has done a great job for the people of Florida both before and after COVID-19 changed all of our lives.

Unlike New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, DeSantis has prioritized the state’s senior citizens, especially when it comes to distribution of the COVID vaccines.

Over the weekend, Yahoo News obtained a copy of a letter written by Florida’s agriculture commissioner, Nikki Fried. On Monday morning, Fried sent this letter to Reps. James Clyburn (D-SC), chair of the House Select Committee on the coronavirus crisis, and Steve Scalise (R-LA), the committee’s ranking member.

According to Yahoo, Fried wrote, “’My office has received frequent complaints’ about the state’s vaccine strategy…charging DeSantis with ‘an inept distribution of vaccines at best, and corrupt political patronage at worst.’”

On February 21, Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) had sent a letter to acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson in which he called on the DOJ “to investigate concerns that Governor Ron DeSantis is establishing coronavirus vaccine distribution and administration sites to benefit political allies and donors, over the needs of higher-risk communities and existing county waitlists.”

Crist is asking the DOJ to determine if DeSantis’ has violated federal law.

Pssssst! Charlie! Probably not.

It should be noted that both Fried and Crist are potential “gubernatorial candidates.”

Crist served as the Republican governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011. He became an independent in 2010 and a Democrat in 2012.

In an email to Yahoo News:

DeSantis spokeswoman Meredith Beatrice said that “the insinuation that politics play into vaccine distribution in Florida is baseless and ridiculous,” pointing to vaccination clinics at Florida A&M University, a historically Black college, and, in partnership with the Biden administration, in underserved areas of Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville. The DeSantis administration has recently held vaccination drives in churches, which has helped to correct racial disparities. Vaccination sites have also come to Walmart and Winn-Dixie outlets.

Townhall reported that Rep. Scalise did indeed receive Fried’s letter and issued a statement. He appears to see Fried’s letter for what it is, politics. Scalise wrote:

Democrats’ approach to the pandemic is all about following politics, not the science. Governor DeSantis is rightly prioritizing seniors for vaccination since they are the most vulnerable to COVID-19, but Democrats shamefully slander his efforts because they only see the pandemic through the lens of politics. Governor DeSantis’ efforts led to almost 50 percent of all Florida seniors to be vaccinated.

Unfortunately, this is part of the Democrats’ broader smear campaign to villainize Republican governors like DeSantis who are following the science during the pandemic by keeping their economies open and prioritizing seniors’ safety. At the same time, Democrats are bailing out governors who continue to fail to save jobs, reopen schools, and distribute the vaccine to the most vulnerable. Many Democrat governors have made terrible, unscientific decisions that led to higher death and unemployment rates within their states. We urge Select Subcommittee Democrats to investigate Governor Cuomo, who purposefully put seniors in danger, instead of governors like DeSantis who chose to prioritize senior safety.

We should expect to see more attacks from the left on DeSantis. His star is rising and he scares the %$&# out of them.

The popular governor has that “little something extra” one often spots in consequential people, before they become consequential.

It’s not his B.A. from Yale or his J.D. from Harvard or even his military service that distinguishes him.

After narrowly defeating his opponent, former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in the 2018 Florida gubernatorial race, he quickly became one of the most popular governors in the country.

Like Trump, he gets things done. DeSantis shares Trump’s laser-like focus and his resolve. Additionally, he doesn’t allow the media to intimidate him, calling them out on several occasions.

But there is one major difference between the two men and it is precisely why DeSantis scares the #*&@ out of Democrats.

Unlike Trump, he’s not going to sabotage himself with tweets and actions that can be criticized. He is disciplined which makes him even more formidable than Trump.

In the video below, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough criticizes DeSantis’ handling of COVID-19 in his state. He tells colleagues, “I don’t think anybody would have expected him to foul it up as badly as he has.”

Upon hearing this, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra pointed out the obvious. “The media is legitimately terrified of Ron DeSantis because they know that he has all the upside that Trump had X10 and has virtually none of the downside. That is the only reason that they continue to lie and spread this bulls***.”

Below, a Florida resident responds to Saavedra’s comment:

Best governor in my lifetime by a long shot. Much to love about an elected official that trusts his constituents to do what’s best for themselves and their families. Result: Florida’s economy is alive and well. Go DeSantis.

Biden Tells a Whopper at CNN Townhall: ‘We didn’t have [the coronavirus vaccine] when we came into office’

Advertisements

It’s at moments like this that we really regret former President Donald Trump’s permanent ban from Twitter.

Discussing the COVID-19 vaccine at CNN’s Townhall on Tuesday night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, President Joe Biden said, “The biggest thing is when you and I talked last, we talked about it’s one thing to have the vaccine – which we didn’t have when we came into office – but a vaccinator. How do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?”

“President-elect Joe Biden received his first dose of the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine on live television Monday afternoon and reassured Americans of the vaccine’s safety,” reported CNN on December 21.

And he received the second dose on January 11.

Apologists are saying the President misspoke. They point out he had previously said that “only” 50 million doses had been available when he took office.

But why didn’t CNN’s Anderson Cooper correct him? Had Trump “misspoken” like this, no journalist would have remained silent.

What the President says matters.

There will be viewers of Tuesday night’s Townhall who will insist to their friends today that the vaccine wasn’t available until after Biden took office. They will say they heard the President say so on CNN.

Additionally, Biden’s remark that there were “only” 50 million doses of the vaccine available when he took office is an attempt to downplay what truly was an amazing accomplishment.

Trump’s Operation Warp Speed was responsible for providing the world with two coronavirus vaccines in record time. It may have happened even sooner, but the pharmaceutical companies waited to announce the positive results of their clinical trials until after Election Day.

I’d bet my life that the Biden Administration could not have achieved this.

As time goes on, Democrats may very well try to “revise” the history of the vaccine to minimize or to even eliminate Trump’s instrumental role in its creation.

It’s kind of hard to believe that 80 million Americans voted for this man, isn’t it?
