• This is proof Biden and his lackeys in the media are lying about COVID

    Last month, for those of you keeping track, the Biden administration
    announced a plan to give additional shots of COVID vaccine — so-called boosters — to millions of Americans. Didn’t see that coming. But the administration never explained why it was necessary or scientifically justifiable. They never bothered. Instead, with characteristic
    aggression, they simply decreed it was going to happen. The new shots
    would go out, they informed us, no later than this week, the week of
    September 20, which is right now. That was the deadline.

    The weird thing is, it turned out, no one had told the scientists about
    this. Two leading vaccine experts at the FDA promptly resigned. Several
    more announced they were thinking of quitting. Then Biden's "COVID
    czar," a former Facebook board member with no medical background called
    Jeff Zients, assured the country "no problem, none of this is cause for
    alarm." People resigning in protest, no big deal.

    The decision to give extra COVID shots, Zeints said, was "made by and
    announced by the nation's leading public health officials."

    Really? Which leading public health officials exactly? Well, Zients
    didn't tell us. It’s clear something was going on here. Then last week,
    the entire lie unraveled completely. A panel of the FDA's vaccine
    experts — actual "leading public health officials" — blew up the whole
    idea in a single afternoon. By a vote of 16 to 2 – not close at all —
    they emphatically rejected Biden’s plan for more shots.

    Cut!

    But just for a minute. Because in Joe Biden’s America, there is no independence from politicians. Shortly after midnight on Thursday, the
    college professor who Biden appointed to run the CDC, Rochelle
    Wolensky, simply overruled the FDA panel. She didn't cite any
    scientific basis for her overruling actual scientists. She just did it.
    And she did it because she can do it, because she’s in power and you’re not.

    You wouldn’t call that - however you might describe it - following the science.

    I am a conservative and dedicated Fox News watcher, but after watching
    Tucker Carlson spew last night I tried to find a way to let Fox know
    what I think of him. Didn't succeed, so here I am. The truth about
    boosters is NOT THAT THEY ARE HARMFUL (!), but that we can't be sure
    how helpful they are. Data out of Israel and other sources indicates
    that boosters are most helpful for Johnson recipients, a little less
    for Pfizer, and a bit less for Moderna. So why do it? We do it for the
    same reason that vaccines were rushed to the market in the first place
    -- this disease is killing millions around the globe and a multi-year development cycle is out of the question. My wife and I are fully
    vaccinated. She has already received a booster and I intend to get one
    as soon as it is available.

    How about you? Have you gotten even the first Vax??? Well, have you???

    In the past, anti-vaxxers came from both the right and left (the worst
    of all was RFK, Jr., claiming vaccines are the work of evil companies
    who want to make money). But now, it seems the clear majority are from
    the right (Carlson's become one because it's good for his ratings). What
    I don't get is why? Trump pushed Operation Warp Speed. You would think
    that would be enough to convince the MAGA crowd. But instead, based on
    what Johnny argues, it seems the MAGA crowd thinks COVID was a
    concoction to keep Trump from being reelected.

    I share your inability to understand what motivates these people, but
    I suspect it's largely a product of a blind and illogical assumption
    that if the enemy is behind it, it must be wrong, and not just wrong,
    downright evil -- perhaps bolstered by a fear of needles. That your
    real problem Johnny? Afraid of the needle?
