Unexpectedly The Pandemic Is Over
Unexpectedly The Pandemic Is Over
Pandemic? What pandemic? As we’ve watched over the last couple of weeks, the narrative has shifted, BIG TIME. Suddenly Democrats are lifting mandates, restrictions, and back pedaling all over the place.
Oh, of course, we still have Governor Hair Gel and Governor Kathy (Cuomo 2.0)Hochul demanding that our kids stay masked in perpetuity, but when we have multiple Democrat governors lift statewide mandates in less than a week? Suddenly the Biden Administration issues orders/requests for the Covid death counts to be recounted as “with” Covid or “because” of Covid. Suddenly we have Fauci telling us, via an interview with The Financial Times, that healthy people may not need boosters.
Fauci told the paper that there is no way to eradicate the virus, but it is his hope that “we are looking at a time when we have enough people vaccinated and enough people with protection from previous infection that the Covid restrictions will soon be a thing of the past.”
He also said it may not been needed for all Americans to get boosted in the future.
“It will depend on who you are,” he said. “But if you are a normal, healthy 30-year-old person with no underlying conditions, you might need a booster only every four or five years.”
Oh. You. Don’t. Say.
Not long ago Fauci was telling us EVERYONE would need boosters several times a year! I tell you, that little man has changed his stance on everything so much it’s dizzying. How anyone can trust a word he says is beyond me.
The pandemic narrative has shifted so quickly that the backpedaling and explaining is a thing of beauty.
"The science has changed." @DrLeanaWen explains why she supports lifting some pandemic restrictions and thinks the decision to wear a mask should shift from a government mandate to an individual choice. pic.twitter.com/vaiybBBF2b— Anderson Cooper 360° (@AC360) February 8, 2022
Oh yes, she went there. Most unexpectedly we are supposed to now understand that SCIENCE changing is why we suddenly have our individual freedom of choice back. WOW. How magnanimous of them! Especially when Wen and Fauci floated the idea MULTIPLE times, including in December 2021, about restricting our domestic travel!
Now we are supposed to celebrate that the pandemic is over because they said so?
In my opinion the pandemic was over when our political betters told us the George Floyd protests were totally ok and would not be super spreader events. In my opinion, the pandemic was over when parents were labeled as domestic terrorists for wanting teachers to A. get their asses back in school and teach, B. actually TEACH their kids, not cram CRT and other unnecessary crap into their minds, and C. Unmask their kids!
While there have been are some terrific teachers and healthcare workers, the ones who engaged in cheering the George Floyd protestors or creepy dance videos also convinced me that much of this pandemic was pure theatre to the detriment of us all.
Fauci, the CDC in their entirety, Walensky, and more have spent the last two years gaslighting us. That which is up is actually sideways don’t you know?
But now, as the Biden polls show that he and the Administration tanking even further (54+% disapproval!), let’s shift that narrative one more time! What used to be sideways is now upside down. We always DID want to keep the response LOCAL!

She said that knowing darned good and well that local health officials, the majority of whom are unelected, would toe the CDC and federal government guidelines. And they did. And many are still doing so. By the way, this is what Walensky said YESTERDAY.
That was a narrative shift in less than 24 hours!
How about Randi Weingarten yesterday as well?

Once again sending the message of hypocrisy given she’s been hosting meetings in rooms full of people while not wearing a mask. As with all our political betters, it’s masks for THEE (Stacey Abrams, Governor Newsom), not for me! Is it any wonder that parents, and now kids are stepping up and saying ENOUGH?
Back to this pandemic narrative. Unexpectedly it’s over. We just have to live with it. Boosters? Maybe. Get healthy and suddenly Vitamin D plus exercise is ok? Oh I know, let’s lift restrictions because polling!
The moves by governors respond to growing public exhaustion with pandemic restrictions in the United States. But there is no consensus among public health experts about whether ending mask mandates now is wise or premature.
In-school transmission of the virus has occurred on only a limited scale throughout the pandemic. While the federal C.D.C. continues to recommend universal mask-wearing in schools, many independent public health experts now say that masks can hinder learning and socialization, and provide little benefit in regions where infection rates are relatively low and vaccination rates are relatively high.
Of course, we’ve been shouting from the rooftops for two years now about the harm this has done to our kids. But today, will the CDC step back from masks for kids?
CDC can’t reverse its mask guidance because the next question is, “what changed?” And they don’t have an answer.— David Marcus (@BlueBoxDave) February 9, 2022
Especially when they can’t even come up with an answer as to if masks were ever effective at all, especially in our schools!
This new and changed SCIENCY narrative regarding the pandemic is a pure political move. Everything Biden and the entire Administration have done these last 11 months has turned to crap. This is a desperate gambit to regain ground.
Fauci got the memo. The Biden regime saw how bad COVID Mania is polling. It's over. Now they enter the full blown coverup and gaslighting stage. They will demand we treat them as saviors instead of the human rights criminals that they really are.— Jordan Schachtel @ dossier.substack.com (@JordanSchachtel) February 9, 2022
Don’t let them, or they will continue to gaslight us into believing that up is sideways and down is over there in left field.
