Joe Biden’s COVID Deceptions

President Joe Biden contends there is “nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months,” which is the exact opposite of what presidential candidate Joe Biden promised voters during the 2020 campaign. And by “exact opposite,” I mean the president’s alleged plan to beat coronavirus literally said that “the trajectory of COVID-19 in America is headed in the wrong direction” and only he could fix it.

The Biden “plan” amounted to a slew of nebulous promises that would be implemented to correct the “Trump fiasco,” such as accelerating the development of a vaccine, producing more masks and pressuring governors to sign mask mandates. Biden repeatedly promised to alter the trajectory of COVID-19. In a platitudinous Oct. 23 speech, Biden pledged to “immediately put in place a national strategy that will position our country to finally get ahead of this virus and get back our lives.”

“Immediately” is an adverb meaning at once, instantly, without any intervening time. It does not mean waiting around to take credit for when the Trump-era vaccines kick in.

One of the silliest talking points pushed by left-wing pundits during the election was to say that Biden had warned us about the pandemic. Evidence of this contention revolves around a single USA Today column in which the then-presidential candidate noted that there were at “least five cases” of COVID-19 in the United States, and there “will likely be more.” Hardly Nostradamus.

Worse still, Biden continually underestimated the speed with which medical technology would move. It’s true that Operation Warp Speed was a rare “public-private partnership” success. Yet, every time President Donald Trump promised that a vaccine would be available by the end of the year, “fact-checkers” were deployed to claim this was a lie. By Dec. 23, the United States led the world in vaccinations, with over a million people vaccinated. This despite the fact that, during the presidential campaign, Democrats such as Kamala Harris engaged in a cynical partisan effort to erode trust in government by intimating that the efficacy and safety of vaccines would be compromised under the Trump administration.

Now, CNN reports that the Biden administration has inherited “no coronavirus vaccine distribution plan to speak of from the Trump administration.” An anonymous source claims that “there is nothing for us to rework. … We are going to have to build everything from scratch.” Why does CNN allow anonymity in a piece bashing the previous administration? Most likely because the claim is obviously untrue. Even National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci refuted the notion. Indeed, the very existence of the vaccine refutes the notion as well.

Then again, if there were no vaccine plan — or, as is the case, we need a better one — why wasn’t the Biden administration ready with its own? The president had promised to “seek out governors and mayors and other leaders of both parties, from every state, territory, and tribe, and consult with education, technology, business, and labor leaders” — basically, everyone but your sister — so he’d be “ready to hit the ground running and fight the virus as our next President.”

The phrase “hit the ground running” means to start a new activity immediately and with a lot of enthusiasm.

At a White House press conference on Thursday, Biden claimed that the Trump administration’s distribution of coronavirus vaccines had been a “dismal failure,” and set a goal to vaccinate 100 million Americans by the end of April — or, around 1 million people per day. But on the day before Biden made his promise, there had already been 1.6 million doses administered in the United States, according to Bloomberg. One hopes Biden’s plan isn’t to slow down inoculations, and that his “plan” was just a clumsy attempt to convince a compliant press to give him credit for existing accomplishments.

When a reporter gently pushed back and noted how unambitious the administration’s goals were, Biden shot back: “When I announced it you all said it wasn’t possible. Come on, give me a break, man.” Did they? Who did? The Trump administration “plan” showed that the U.S. was set to administer at least 170 million doses by the end of April.

Now, I’m skeptical that there was much more the Trump administration could have done to stop the spread of coronavirus. Almost everything we have done has been reactive. Nearly every economic and political system has also struggled to contain the virus. Nearly every state, blue and red. That, however, wasn’t an outlook shared by Democrats, who blamed Trump personally, and Republicans generally, for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of citizens. Biden is now imbued with the same powers as Trump — even more, with effective control of both houses — and all he’s done is deflect.

Biden didn’t even look at all those executive orders when he signed them. He was just following his ordered list.
Doesn’t even know all the damage he has caused with the jobs lost. He IS NOT the legal president. Never will be. Nor is the VP legal. Need to impeach those two along with pelosi. THE TRUMPS ARE THE REAL LEADERS.

When was the last time ANYONE saw armed guards around the capital?? Not just because those citizens went in there without an invitation, but because they were encouraged in by a guard that waved his arms and told them they could!! I saw the video! This is CRAZY!

Exactly, Lou. Trump was our saving factor to claim our country. When the bottom drops out, who are those that voted for AL capote and company going to blame. This is a horrible time in history.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has reportedly threatened to misuse Congressional budget reconciliation to ram through another COVID-19 stimulus package without Republican support.
This is just a [email protected] [email protected] to the republicans, [email protected] this with everything I want or else. Well if that is the way you want it go for it a lone. It will be on your head as to how you will pay for it. If you rob the seniors pensions I am quite sure they will remember, all seniors Dems Repubs and Libs. Who will show up for your next election. Probably Antifuka or maybe BLM.

Cuomo said that people died who cares where they died? That is not the question, he is deflecting from the real question. It isn’t where people died, the real question is why did they die. The only answer that I can come up with is Cuomo.

I only have this to say about the statement Mad Max made that dems say was false.
Maxine wet-pants legitimized this statement a long time ago, It is to late for the dems to take it back. Enjoy the fruits of your propaganda machine!!! more to come.

Democrat Secretaries of State and partisan judges illegally changed election law????
I wish to make a correction, everyone keeps saying the democrats changed the election laws. Well! I for one disagree, they did not change the election laws. we need to call things as they are, they could not change the laws because that is give to the state legislatures by the constitution, so the only way they could change the law was for them to break the laws. Now for those that don’t understand what this means, is that These people committed a criminal act, by circumventing the legislature. This means that these people must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

He called it The Office of the Former President, What he should have called it is “The Office of the Legitimate President”. As Biden is an Illegitimate President. He was not elected by the people he was elected by machine fraud.

Hang tight everyone! The real CALVARY is on the way! The real, legitimate President is not far away and the ONE who fights for him will will soon appear! And when HE does, there will be HELL to pay! The illegitimate phony will be removed and the rightfully elected PRESIDENT will ascend the office as our Commander-iIn-Chief! You heard it first right here!

So , what happens when it is proven that the election was rigged ?
As far as I know there is no precedence for it. Would they be hung for treason ?

Joe told us he had a plan. He lied! Again! Yet here we are with yet another liar, again! And we still have the media telling more lies to cover him…again! I guess some of us are not paying attention, but I’ll promise that if you keep electing these liars and keep listening to the main street media, you’ll start. I just hope for all of our sake that it’s not too late.

“Now, CNN reports that the Biden administration has inherited “no coronavirus vaccine distribution plan to speak of from the Trump administration.”
Anyone else surprised at this lie from CNN? Anyone believing it should look up the number of vaccines INSIDER Joe Biden inherited from President and the number that had been given. From reports I’ve seen. Trump had distributed many thousands of Covid 19 vaccines to states, but the states had not given very few of them and this was very close to the inauration date.
BTW, anyone else wondering how many of the states have the ability to store these vaccines at the cold temperature it is reported to require?

I read all these comments and each one is so true it is absolutely terrifying to understand why people do not want to know the truth. Well needless to say is because a democrat always thinks anything they say or do is A OK!! I cannot wait until the dummies actually see bidet is not going to do one thing he said. He is waiting for Ojama tells him what needs to be done to tear America apart. Then we all need to descend upon their homes and just push down the walls and doors of their homes and fancy surroundings and taken over. They sit in their elegant homes and laugh at what they are doing to the people who pay their salaries.
Main thing that really needs to happen is get rid of those butt heads that are not Americans trying to make our world what they came out of. Send them back with a black bow ties tightly around their neck.

This crook is an idiot and so are the people try to brain wash us ! This is a bad sequel to the hunger games! I seriously pray for the day these evil doers are brought to justice. God’s justice. Anyone who supports this so called administration supports the complete destruction of our county. Everything we know is upside down and you greedy clowns that are part of that process are murderers! The truth is they are fully aware of what they are doing and wanting us to act like it is normal! It is not !!! And we see you!!!
