Biden grappling with ‘pandemic
of the unvaccinated’

Original Article

WASHINGTON — Two weeks after celebrating America’s near “independence” from the coronavirus, President Joe Biden is confronting the worrying reality of rising cases and deaths — and the limitations of his ability to combat the persistent vaccine hesitance responsible for the summer backslide. Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations and deaths are rising among unvaccinated people. While the rates are still sharply down from their January highs, officials are concerned by the reversing trendlines and what they consider needless illness and death. And cases are expected to continue to rise in coming weeks.


Hmmm. Causes a dilemma. What to watch? Biden grappling, or the most miserable Olympics ever? Maybe another beer.

Has anyone bastardized the English language more than the Biden crowd? A pandemic of the unvaccinated? This is Alice in Wonderland territory.

I need to see the demographic of those still affected to come to a reasonable conclusion about the dangers vs the China flu and the vaxine. (I spelled it wrong on purpose.) If it’s still the elderly and those with pre existing health issues, nothing has really changed and I’ll stay unvaxxed.

Sorry. I don't believe their numbers. I don't believe their assessment of cause and effect. I don't believe their motives. Not one of my friends, relatives and acquaintances - vaccinated or not - has contracted COVID in the past six months. If they truly wanted people to survive, they would have worked on treatment options as well as vaccines. The 'right to try' would have become the rallying cry and ivermectin and HCQ would be widely available. Their credibility and hence, ability to persuade has been shredded. No wonder they are entertaining the notion of using force to vaccinate all.

Over and over we see that the AP has no shame. They've created a super-hero character called "President Joe Biden". The verbs they choose to describe his actions are not reflecting reality. It's all a fiction that they clearly enjoy promulgating.

The worry is that too many people aren't buying the Controlvirus lie anymore. They still have plenty of useful idiots to carry their water, though. My doctor put on another push to vaccine the pariahs like me yesterday, citing the incredibly dangerous Delta. Of course, he has to shill for the medical group he works for, and they are all in on pimping for the cause.

If you dig around enough you'll find that minority communities have the lowest vaccination rates. For example, Mississippi is 38% black but 55% of COVID cases are among blacks. The media paints the state as Republican but omits that there's a largely Democrat black population that is getting most of the cases.

Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations are rising. Now, you wanna know why? In Utah, at least, doctors cannot prescribe covid treatments once you get infected no matter how slight your symptoms are! You MUST be hospitalized! I'm tested for covid every single time I go to a doctor. And, if I test positive I will get no treatment unless I agree to be hospitalized. What a way for Biden and his globalist cronies (puppet masters) to bump up case numbers.

'Pandemic of the unvaxxed'. That there is great marketing. Well, there's a 99.+% survival rate... there are vax complications (especially for the young for whom the fatality rate from covid is practically non-existant) and then there are all those unvaccinated souls who already had covid and survived (some without even having bad symptoms) who will never need the vax. While all this makes the vax a non-issue, this talk is filling up cnn/msnbc/npr and the rest to make the liberals scared. And it's working.

#15, I hope that being tested is your choice when you go to your doctor. If he/she is testing you without your permission, you need to find a new doctor. I had my last annual checkup in May and my doctor didn’t even ask if I had been vaccinated much less try to pressure me into it. I’d like to see a breakdown of Delta variant cases by location and compare them to the areas where the illegals are being sent. I’d bet my next social security check on the locales being the same. Another factor is that the “vaccines” prevent the body’s immune system from attacking viruses other than the first covid variant - that’s why the government is telling people who have been vaccinated to go back to wearing the useless masks. It also may be why there is now talk about needing a booster within a year of getting the jab. Another reason for the masks is that those who have been vaccinated can shed the spike proteins created by the vaccine by simply breathing and can thus infect others. Lastly, believe absolutely NOTHING that the government tells you.

Read stats this morning. Each week we have had 2,000 more deaths than the previous week from the vaccine. That is far more than covid deaths. Of course that will not be news, but reasoning people take such info into account making their health choices. We need to rise up and demand answers why the flood of illegals coming over the border are not being tested and vaccinated if it us so imperative for the rest of us!

FTA: Many Americans remain resistant or unmotivated to get shots, despite months of often-creative efforts by federal and state officials and the private sector to spread information about vaccine safety and accessibility. Creative? To me that means lies. Notice that the article took a specific poke at Florida, where millions have gone on vacation from around the world this year. They still hang on to the mask lie even though that piece of cloth has been thoroughly debunked. My immune system has been faultless for the past thirty-five years without a cold, the flu or the stupid bat virus, why would I jeapordize a perfect record with a questionable shot pushed by an administration that pulled a coup to take office from the real President? Shove your vaccine, Joe, if you can find the proper hole.

Statista has the best chart for "Number of US Covid Deaths by Age", information either hidden by CDC or made unintelligible by presentation. The "Number of Cases" fear last summer overlooked that we're the third most populous country in the world. For a graphic of what "Number of Cases" means, search: "US map overlaying Europe". Rather than tell us of the twelve sources of bad information, maybe Facebook can identify reliable non-political sources.

He needs to think about what his policies are doing to this country and let people decide to get vaccinated. The shot is not 100% effective since not all of the new cases world-wide are affecting unvaccinated people. Check out the 100 vaccinated sailors on the HMS Queen Elizabeth coming down with the virus this week.

I only take vaccines I think (1) are safe and (2) that I believe I need. The COVID vaccines fail on both counts. There's just not enough known yet about the long-term effects of the vaccines to declare them safe just yet. They might very well be, but at this point, the government isn't allowing open, honest discussion of the pros and cons, so I'm skeptical. Further, I'm not sure why I need to be vaccinated against a virus that is 99+% survivable in healthy people.

# 17 , Yes great marketing since a "pandemic" only involves people that are sick, and it you're not infected you're not sick, so there is no " pandemic ". "Pandemic" is being used like " systemic racism", "global warming/climate change ". Empty words and phrases.

"Pandemic of the unvaccinated" sounds a lot like "Blame America(ns) First." We can never know how many lives were saved by the vaccinations developed under President Donald Trump. I received mine early in the year, and believe it was in my best interest to do so. At the same time, I haven't forgotten how President Trump was blamed after an elderly woman murdered her husband by spiking his soda with aquarium cleaner containing hydroxychloroquine. She took a smaller does herself, and survived. The MSM was quick to believe and spread her false claim that because Donald Trump took a hydroxychloroquine formulation for humans under a doctor's care, Donald Trump led this elderly soul to believe drinking aquarium cleaner was a way to avoid catching the virus. Fortunately the police weren't nearly as gullible as our MSM.

Does anyone trust 'the data' anymore out of the CDC, the basis (yet again) of all of this fear-mongering? They squandered that trust many moons ago already. Don't tell me, the rise in cases (people testing 'positive') is based off of polymerese chain reaction (PCR) testing. PCR testing has been notorious for producing false positives for Wuhan Flu from the get-go. Even the inventor of PCR testing warned about the unreliability of using PCR for Wuhan Flu screening. And hospitalizations due to Wuhan Flu 'delta variant' again? Please. Since last year it's been an open secret that health care providers have financial incentives to report any linkages to Wuhan Flu on patients, irregardless if the hospitalization or death was due to the flu...or just incidental to it. Remember the scare of the reported spike in cases in India earlier this year (again apparently caused by the 'delta variant)? That story quietly disappeared. Why? Indian Ministry of Health issued Ivermectin as a preventative measure and treatment. Wuhan cases there dropped 70%. Hmmm.

Well. If Sleepy Creepy Crooked President Uncle. Joe and Horizontal Harris wouldn't have politicized the vaccine during their "campaign," maybe the vaccine would be an easier sell. I still remember Horizontal saying she wouldn't take the Trump vaccine. And on top of that, Pfizer held news of the vaccine until after they stole the election. No sympathy for their plight from this end. And I think everyone who is.medically approved to get the vaccine should get it (as I did in Jan/Feb).

Agree 100% with #1! The democrats and their media always have to have a villain; in this case the unvaccinated. Don’t look at the millions of illegals crossing the border everyday, many who test positive for COVID. In the county where I live, COVID was under control then Biden brought in bus loads of illegals. We have more people sick now than during the height of the pandemic and they want to blame the rising numbers on unvaccinated? I call BS!

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” that the U.S. economy will have “several more months of rapid inflation.” Yellen said, “We will have several more months of rapid inflation. So I’m not saying that this is a one-month phenomenon. But I think over the medium term, we’ll see inflation decline back toward normal levels. But, of course, we have to keep a careful eye on it. Measures of inflation expectations, I think, still look quite well contained over the medium term. [Snip]. I believe fundamentally, you know, that this is something that will settle down.”

ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass

Key inflation measure rises at
fastest pace since 1992

Consumer prices roared higher last month, rising at their fastest pace in decades. Inflation rose 5% in the 12-months ending in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Thursday. That marked the biggest jump since August 2008. Stripping out food and energy costs, which tend to be more volatile, inflation stood at 3.8% over that 12- month period. It was the biggest increase in so-called core inflation since June 1992. In the month of May alone, prices rose 0.6% on a seasonally adjusted basis, slightly less than in April. Core inflation, excluding food and energy prices, stood at 0.7%, down from 0.9% in April.

What will it take for Joe Biden to admit he is disastrously wrong about Afghanistan? The US leader struck a defiant pose last week. Sounding like a slightly desperate Olympics coach, he told Afghans it was their country. If they want it, they have to fight for it. In American politics-speak, this is called tough love. Without the love. Biden has more hands-on foreign policy experience than any president since George HW Bush. That doesn’t mean he knows what he’s doing. Opinion polls suggest his abrupt Afghan withdrawal has majority public support. That doesn’t mean Americans will remain indifferent as the carnage and misery mount.

A Teaneck woman who was attacked and suffered a broken bone in her leg in Staples last summer after asking a fellow customer to put on a mask has filed a lawsuit against the business.

I later learned it was my tibia,” Kagan said. Police arrested Terri Thomas, 25,

Marine Corps General David H. Berger on Monday rebuked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s edict requiring all Armed Forces personnel to submit to Covid-19 vaccinations under threat of court martial or discharge, said a source in Gen. Berger’s office who overheard a heated conversation between them. Gen. Berger telephoned the defense secretary minutes after he said in a press conference that the Covid-19 vaccination is needed to maintain military readiness and that he would enforce the mandatory vaccination policy regardless of FDA approval status. “There will be no mandatory vaccinations for my Marines,” Gen. Berger said.

As the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack looms, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is crying poverty for the second year in a row. This time, it says it can’t afford to mount special exhibitions planned to mark the two-decade milestone. In 2020, the twin-beam “Tribute in Light” was canceled only to win a last-minute reprieve after soon-to-be-ex Gov. Cuomo pitched in state resources. But no such bailout appears in the offing this time. In fact, this year, the museum is shamefully restricting the reading-of-the-names ceremony exclusively to the families of 9/11 victims. No hero firefighters, cops, first responders or emergency workers,

The United States Department of Homeland Security made a quiet and alarming announcement yesterday, creating the official position of the United States Government under the Joe Biden regime. [SEE DHS STATEMENT HERE] According to the statement, if you question the orthodoxy, mandates, or COVID-19 response from the U.S. government, you are now considered a “terrorist”, specifically a “Domestic Violent Extremist” (DVE).This is quite a remarkable development and seems to underpin the tenuous, unstable and fragile disposition of the current regime. The Department of Homeland Security seems rather paranoid in their need to label anyone who would question the COVID-19 response. More than half the country would now

Gas customers voiced their disappointment and frustration regarding soaring prices in Arlington, Virginia, on Thursday. “It’s killing me. It takes 60 bucks to fill up the 2020 Camaro and it takes $52 to fill up my 2016 Chevy Malibu,” a man named Tony, who is a Shell customer, told a reporter with Fox News, adding, “It’s crazy.” Consumer prices grew 5.4 percent in July compared to one year ago, mirroring the prior month’s increase as the fastest since 2008, a recent Department of Labor report said, according to the outlet. “Gas prices saw a 2.4% increase from June to July,” the article read. The average price in Virginia, Thursday, was $2.98 per gallon,
