Jill Biden offered a reassuring message to parents and children on Monday, which is the first day of school for many kids across the nation. In an op-ed published by ABC News, the first lady, a school teacher, acknowledged the fears some may have returning to the classroom and said President Joe Biden is doing all he can to defeat the coronavirus pandemic.'Parents, I want you to know that your child, your school and your family are at the heart of all that my husband, Joe, is doing to help our country defeat and ultimately recover from this pandemic,' she wrote.

Nary a scientific study shows mask use slows or prevents COVID. Certainly not with children. Nor does any scientific study show the risks of COVID in small children (almost none) outweighs the risks of the vaccine (small to unknown)

Hey Jill, listen to the science. Your husband has dementia/Alzheimer's. You hid it and continue to. The blood of those 13 service members, the American citizens, defense contractors, and the Afghan people who assisted us that he left behind is all over your hands. In fact, you're going to drown in it because there will be so much of it!

Wish she cared as much about Joe's dementia as she does about kids wearing a dirty, nasty, useless face mask. And by the way, it is NOT a vaccine. A vaccine gives the recipient IMMUNITY. These shots DO NOT offer immunity. They can make a case of covid milder with a better chance of little to no recovery problems. Like the flu shot it is an inoculation. A vaccine does not need to be administered 3 to 4 times in a year.

Despite all of the draconian efforts of the democrat elite, the vaccination rates are now below 1 million per week (down from 3 million). It seems, the harder they push the worse the results. And, recall the reason they said to wear cloth masks was to ensure we didn't run out of the N95 masks that hospital and medical workers needed while they were treating COVID patients. The cloth masks don't stop the minute particles of the virus, which they all know, and you know "that wonderful doctor, Dr. Jill" should know. Now, they say, even if you are vaccinated, you are still prone to get the virus. That you may now also need to get a booster shot, possibly every 5 months even. None of which breeds confidence that they know what they're talking about.

President Joe Biden wanted the now-departed Afghan president to create the 'perception' that his government was capable of holding off the Taliban - an indication he knew it was only a matter of time before the US ally fell to the Islamic group even while reassuring Americans at home that it would not happen. In the last phone call between Biden and his Afghan then-counterpart Ashraf Ghani, the American president said they needed to change perceptions of the Taliban's rapid advance 'whether it is true or not,' according to excerpts published on Tuesday.

Biden had just concluded his address to the nation on the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, ending a war that had lasted 20 years. The president has been criticized for failing to anticipate the rapid crumbling of Afghan security forces in the face of the Taliban’s advance. That caused a chaotic scene at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, where the U.S. military hurried to evacuate more than 123,000 Americans and Afghans despite being surrounded by the Taliban and ISIS-K.
