A year ago, President Joe Biden spoke to more than 1,000 maskless people on the South Lawn of the White House and declared the country’s independence from the corona virus to much applause.
He remarked at the time: “Today, across this nation, we can say with confidence: America is coming together again… 245 years ago we declared our independence from a distant king. Today we are closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus.”
But as if to betray himself, Biden admitted, “It doesn’t mean the fight against COVID-19 is over. We still have a lot to do.”
He then invoked his pure vaccine strategy, stating: “Thanks to our heroic vaccine efforts, we have gained the upper hand against this virus. We can live our lives, our children can go back to school, our economy is back in full swing.”
The core of the speech was not to announce the achievement of meaningful elimination of the virus, as China recently did in Shanghai. He intended to notify the country that America is abandoning any major mitigation measures that would impede the full reopening of the US economy, including the full reopening of schools for in-person tuition, whatever the cost.
And a year later, the Biden administration has completed what his predecessor, Donald Trump, had begun – dismantling all mitigation measures to contain the virus and even all reports and measurements to determine its impact, effectively establishing it as a mainstay in society .
Biden noted last year, “Companies are opening and hiring. We are seeing record job creation and record economic growth, the best in four decades, and I might add the best in the world. Today, across the nation, we can say with confidence that America is coming together… Today, even though the virus has not been defeated, we know this – it no longer controls our lives, it no longer cripples our nation.”
Biden’s apparent mistake was a deliberate lie. That World Socialist Web Sitenoted as early as March 13, 2021 that his assurances to Americans that the country was on track to defeat COVID-19 and to “mark our independence from this virus” by July 4 were misleading, distorted, and full of information are lies.
International public health experts have repeatedly warned that while a vaccine-only strategy allows the virus to spread unhindered in communities, it increases the risk that newer and more contagious and deadlier variants will develop.
Comparing Biden’s remarks to former President George Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech delivered on May 1, 2003 aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln is obvious and revealing. The war itself was not declared over until December 15, 2011, an eight-year conflict that has had a terrible impact on the region’s population and will last for generations.
A 2013 analysis by researchers from the US, Iraq and Canada estimated that from March 1, 2003 to June 30, 2011, more than 405,000 deaths were directly attributed to the conflict. A lancet The study put the number of civilians and combatants killed at 650,000. Mortality surveys and public health measurements put the death toll at up to 2.4 million.
The consequences of COVID-19 could be even worse, and on a global scale, not just in the United States. When Biden made his infamous declaration of independence from the coronavirus speech last year, the official US COVID-19 death toll had reached 625,000. A year later, another 418,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. And loud economist According to excess death modeling, more than half a million Americans have died in the past 365 days.
The Biden administration’s campaign to ensure schools open to face-to-face classes in the fall of 2021 resulted in the largest mass infections among the nation’s youngest. More than 75 percent of children under the age of 18 have been infected at least once. This has since fueled the Delta variant and numerous iterations of the Omicron variant in the US.
When Biden delivered his “independence” speech, preliminary data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) projected COVID-related deaths among children under 500. February 2022. Also, more than 90,000 children have been hospitalized during the pandemic.
And according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, another 200 children have died since then. Yet not once has the Biden administration apologized to the children and parents of these families for its brazen lie during a CNN President’s town hall when he asked an 8-year-old about her low risk of contracting COVID-19 and to spread calmed.
In addition, 200,000 American children have been orphaned by this criminal policy that seeks to prioritize business profits over the welfare of the people. More than a quarter of a million between the ages of 18 and 64 died, including nearly 68,000 under 50. The Delta variant was particularly deadly in this age group. From Biden’s speech through February 2022, COVID was either the second or third leading cause of death in the United States.
Meanwhile, a growing number of COVID-related deaths are occurring among those previously thought to be fully vaccinated. In January and February 2022, more than 50,000 vaccinated Americans died from COVID-19 caused by Omicron, which has evolved into a highly infectious, immune-deficient strain. The vaccines have also been shown to provide relatively short-lived immunity, requiring multiple booster shots to maintain adequate protection against serious illness.
There is also mounting evidence that reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 is very common and without mitigation measures the population can expect to be infected twice a year. Recent population studies have also shown that reinfections increase the likelihood of dying or being hospitalized compared to those with only a previous infection. These risks also apply to people who have already been vaccinated.
This condition is known as Long COVID, a multisystem disease that commonly affects the lungs, heart, vascular system, and other organ systems. In addition to the usual symptoms of fatigue, joint pain and brain fog, the damage to critical systems can have long-term consequences. Post-acute COVID syndrome can affect about one in five to one in four people, and a debilitating long COVID has been observed in a third of them.
dr Ziyad Al-Aly of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and co-author of the VA study on SARS-CoV-2 reinfection noted, “We show that compared to people with initial infection, people with reinfection had increased risks of all-cause mortality , hospital stay and several predefined outcomes. Risks were evident in subgroups, including those who were unvaccinated, had one vaccination, or had two or more vaccinations prior to second infection… Overall, the results show that reinfection adds a non-negligible risk of all-cause mortality and adverse health outcomes both acute and post-acute phase of reinfection.”
And while Americans face catastrophic economic hardship, with inflation soaring and gas and food prices soaring, 727 US billionaires have amassed another $1.7 trillion in wealth as the country squandered the needless Marked the deaths of more than a million people from COVID-19.
But the White House has said there will be no funding for next-generation vaccines and therapeutics like monoclonal antibodies and antivirals unless Congress approves a $22.5 billion COVID funding proposal (less than a sixtieth of the increase in billionaire wealth). . In the spring is the Washington Post reported that Biden administration officials predicted the possibility of a massive wave of infections and deaths in the fall and winter months. The uninsured and underinsured would be left destitute.
On May 9, 2022, Biden issued a statement requesting increased funding for COVID and the US-NATO proxy war in Ukraine against Russia, which has resulted in significant civilian and military casualties, including internal and external displacement of millions of people Ukrainians. It is also implicated in the ongoing energy and food crises that are causing massive social disasters around the world.
In his war finance statement, Biden noted, “I have almost exhausted the funds made available to me by a bipartisan majority in Congress to support Ukrainian fighters. This assistance has been critical to Ukraine’s success on the battlefield… I am pleased that in my discussions with Congress leaders, the proposal I submitted appears to have strong support and that Congress is likely to adopt it in the form I have proposed. And with virtually no opposition, Congress committed $54 billion to the war effort.
In his appeal to Congress for COVID funding, Biden noted, “Without timely COVID funding, more Americans will die needlessly.” No one in the media or in Congress has bothered to address the contradiction between that statement and his “Declaration of Independence.” of COVID-19 a year ago.
And as recent congressional hearings have shown, there will be no future funding for the pandemic, which will hold the population hostage for years, resulting in further loss of life and health in the United States as the pandemic continues at the raging around the world, unchecked in all major countries except China.
