Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the official narrative was all that was allowed. Now it’s all falling apart — could it be intentional?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shattered the myth of it being a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Breitbart reported. While President Joe Biden pursues a vaccine mandate on that basis, evidence suggests it’s all built on an admitted fallacy.
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, told host Wolf Blitzer back in August. “They continue to work well for Delta, with regard to severe illness and death – they prevent it. But what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.”

Despite this revelation, President Joe Biden had called this the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” as late as mid-December. His Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandate for companies with over 100 employees is predicated on the idea that the vaccines will keep employees safe, an angle the Wall Street Journal now says is obsolete.
The mandates were proposed in November 2021, even as the delta variant was proving to be stubbornly resistant to the vaccines. However, the rise of the omicron variant coupled with the already questionable efficacy completely undermines Biden’s crown jewel of COVID-19 response.
The U.S. Supreme Court is currently examining the issue as a matter of constitutionality. However, even if a compulsory medical procedure were deemed within the administration’s purview, the newest developments in knowledge about the vaccine negate that argument entirely.
It’s possible this is all part of a political calculation as the vaccine mandate could get shut down in the courts and would be another big loss in the eyes of the American people. The administration is struggling as it heads into the 2022 midterm elections, and any political blunder — real or perceived — could cost big.
The one surprising fact is that the whole narrative surrounding COVID-19 mitigation is beginning to shift to a more nuanced, commonsense approach. Perhaps the administration is ready to reopen America and face the fact that the virus is likely endemic — just in time for key elections.
