Nearly half of Biden’s 500M free COVID
tests still unclaimed

Washington—Nearly half of the 500 million free COVID-19 tests the Biden administration recently made available to the public still have not been claimed as virus cases plummet and people feel less urgency to test. Wild demand swings have been a subplot in the pandemic, from vaccines to hand sanitizer, along with tests. On the first day of the White House test giveaway in January, received over 45 million orders. Now officials say fewer than 100,000 orders a day are coming in for the packages of four free rapid tests per household, delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.(Snip)The White House says Americans have placed 68 million orders


The objective was to hand a fortune in taxpayer money to manufacturer, and to let the stock market players in the US Congress make some side money. This was a resounding success, so why worry about the tests? Throw them in the trash, or better let, let them expire and buy even more tests just in case.

The amount of money being thrown around by Biden is unbelievable. I know we don't have it. The goal of these people has to be to bankrupt us and turn us into a communist country. I've read a bit of history and know this scenario has played out hundreds of times over thousands of years. I don't care how many times it happens, I will never understand the need for power and money some men have. And that's all this is, greed for money and power.

Made in China? Shut down the ubiquitous testing, and watch the “case” numbers evaporate.

The first day that people could sign up for the free tests on the Internet website both my spouse and I signed up. Biden said at the time that people would receive their tests about 11 days after signing up. I think that was about a month ago. Following that, neither my spouse or I ever received the free tests. Media reports indicate the the tests were to come from China and that were the result of a Biden billion dollar federal contract with Chinese companies that were to produce the tests. Common sense will tell you that Biden Initiative could well be a big scam, and that the appropriate authorities should be following the federal money on that one.

I have yet to take any Covid tests (as far as I know ,I have never had Covid) but I ordered a government kit. My kit was made in Korea. Why not made in the USA?? If I get any symptoms and test positive, I won't get any treatment anyway. 😠 That's what the BCBS hotline nurse told me a month ago. The kit has an expiration date...July 2022. Let's Go Brandon!

We didn't get any free ones because the message said I had already ordered them, which I hadn't. I was foolish enough to be suckered in that I needed them. I got some at our local pharmacy and have yet to use them. biden is just spreading the money around. What an insult - he bought the tests from China!! How dumb can one be.

Biden achieved his goal, which was to send more American money to his Chinese overlords, in exchange for the self-tests which include sodium azide. Asked why billions of dollars of test kits were ordered from China, Jen Psycho spun that there wasn’t enough American capacity to meet demand, though some domestic manufacturers reduced production last year due to a drop in orders and had to lay off employees. Anyone trusting their health to Made in China kits is a fool.

We used our tests after a family retreat in the mountains with three positive testing kids and grandkids. Nobody had more than a sore throat or mild cough. Nobody tested positive afterwards. I take that to mean we are all immune now. Good to know. B'bye covid.

More tests than Americans. And I still don't understand why anyone would bother testing. If you are sick, get treatment. The test is irrelevant. AND if you KNOW it is the Wuhan virus, and go to a hospital, they'll just send you home without treatment, anyway. It's not like if you get the test and it's positive, they will suddenly spring into action to treat you. THEY WON'T TREAT YOU. They are evil. Only a very small percentage of doctors will treat people for Wuhan virus. Why have a test at all? The Dems are idiots....but very dangerous idiots.

I would never sign up for one of those tests - because I don’t want my name on yet another government list. We all know the symptoms of the quickly receding virus so there’s no need for a test.

In recent years, words and ideas used to describe discrimination against members of historically marginalized and disadvantaged groups have seemingly exploded into the lexicon: systemic inequality, privilege, white supremacy, the patriarchy, etc. In some senses, the apparent novelty is deceiving: most of these concepts have been around for decades in academic and activist circles.(Snip)For instance, given that the shifts became increasingly pronounced in 2012, one might assume they are straightforwardly a response to the killing of Trayvon Martin. However, it is harder to explain why we see similar changes in discussion and public attitudes with respect to sexism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia and antisemitism–all at roughly the same time

A former business partner of Hunter Biden was sentenced Monday to more than a year in prison for his role in a scheme to defraud a Native American tribe of some $60 million in bonds. The defendant, Devon Archer, was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison by Manhattan Judge Ronnie Abrams, who said the crime was “too serious” to let him just walk. “There’s no dispute about the harm caused to real people,” Abrams said, noting that the defrauded tribe, the Oglala Sioux, is one of the poorest in the nation.(Snip)“I was doing too many things at once and not paying enough attention,” Archer said

People say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a messaging problem. But the CDC’s problem is not messaging—it’s issuing flawed guidance while covering up the data. Case in point: pushing boosters for young people.

I’m having a problem using the president’s formal title and name together. It’s not a matter of Republican disrespect for a Democrat.

But it did prove that we don’t really know who won that state. Given the election shenanigans around the country in November 2020, there is certainly justification to question the outcome.

Over the last 30 years, many Ukrainians have asked when their nation will finally get its George Washington, a leader who can rally the people and lead it to victory. I’ve usually told Ukrainian interlocutors that Washington wasn’t born a great man; he became one because of the trials of the Revolutionary War, when he demonstrated his ability to lead and to symbolize the American struggle. A Ukrainian Washington might emerge in a similar manner, and now perhaps he has. Ukrainians’ question may have been answered by an unlikely candidate for the hero role: Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian-turned-president, who many analysts — including me — considered would be disastrous for the country.
