CDC Reverses Indoor-Mask Rules, Biden Mulls Mandating Vaccines For Federal Workers, Threatens Lockdowns
As expected, CDC Director Rachel Walensky announced Tuesday afternoon that because not enough Americans got the vaccine, those who did will now be asked once again to wear masks in public. While the vast majority of transmission is occurring via unvaccinated individuals, the CDC admitted that some vaccinated people might experience "breakthrough" infection. Conveniently, she said the changes are the result of "new science".
"As you have heard from me previously, this pandemic continues to pose a serious threat to the health of all Americans,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told reporters on a call. "Today, we have new science related to the Delta area that requires us to update the guidance regarding what you can do when you are fully vaccinated."
Remember, Trust The Science™ even when the "science" seems to change at will to be whatever they want it to be.
If you can recall just a short time ago, the "vaccine" was hailed as a way for us to get back to normal. Now it appears that if you get jabbed, you might still be able to get the Chinese coronavirus and also spread it to others (why else would a "vaccinated" person need to wear a mask?). That seems so weird because former Vice-President Biden, widely recognized as America's leading intellectual, told us you won't get the 'vid if you get the jab.

Those dastardly guys at Zerohedge are daring to suggest that this is all political (again) and not based in The Science™ .....
Biden added that if people get vaccinated and wear masks, it will help avoid lockdowns. But of course that's not true. In reality, measures like the new mask guidance are more likely a prelude to ordering another lockdown, with all the stimulus and federal, Fed-backstopped money printing to convince voters that their only hope is to stick with the Democrats through the midterms...and beyond.
This is the election strategy, to avoid talking about inflation and rampant violent crime they will simply shut down the nation again, print more money and breeze to election victory by promising to "keep us safe". That won't help the black people living in urban warzones who get hit by stray bullets from their fellow Africans but for White people who live in the burbs and love to parade their small children around with masks to show what good parents they are, it will be a big winner politically.
The Babylon Bee is right on it as usual.
"We are going to lock down, wear masks, and social distance, all of which didn't work, but hey. It's worth trying again," said Dr. Anthony Fauci in a television interview this morning. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. That's what they taught us in science school. Look at my lab coat. It's white. Do you like it? It has pockets."
The television anchor then assured Dr. Fauci that his pockets were very nice.
"Thanks. I also have the heartbeat thingy. I like to breathe on it to warm it up. Makes me look official and doctory and whatnot."
There is no level of mockery too cruel for this asshat. He gives the entire medical profession a black eye.
Tucker is saying what too few are willing to say: this is about control.
There’s no political advantage in a rational policy like that. Instead, the administration has decided to use the virus to cement its political control of the country. Democrats rode COVID to victory last November, through fear and blame and brand new methods of voting. They plan to keep power through next year’s midterms in the very same way — by dividing Americans against one another, vaccinated vs. unvaccinated.
That is what I have been saying for a long time. The masks don't work, and apparently the "vaccine" doesn't work or works so poorly that you can still contract or spread the virus if you aren't wearing a thin paper mask that doesn't work either. The lockdowns crushed the economy and paying people to stay home is making it hard for businesses to recover because no business can compete with staying home and getting paid.
What these measures do accomplish is pretty clear. The fear of coronavirus amplified by the media blaming every death on Trump helped pave the way for the most tainted and illegitimate "election" in U.S. history. It is providing the pretext for even greater centralized social and economic control. Most of all it is increasing the divide. Do you know of a single significant liberal who is questioning the mask mandates or vaccine? Even one? All of the pushback is coming from people on the "conservative" side of the spectrum. It isn't about "science" vs "anti-science", it is about "Left" and "Right" and since the people They want to crush all happen to be "anti-science", well that just makes it a whole lot handier to shit on us and find new ways to make us miserable, all in the name of "safety" and "science".
It is getting less so but for some time it was startling to go out and see the faces of people going about their business normally. We involuntarily gave up a year and a half of our lives, at least most people did, and for what? Apparently it didn't work and we are facing the same thing all over again in the next few months. There is nothing that infuriates the mandarins in Coruscant quite like regular people going about their lives without being bitched at by their betters in D.C. so lockdowns and mask mandates are likely just around the corner as the temps start to cool down as we enter fall.
So what do we do? Despite some reports of store shortages, most places are fully stocked up on all of the essentials. For now. I am not saying you should panic shop but again you should ask "What ran out last time?" and then "How do I look right now on those items?" These two boxes arrived yesterday...
One with Member's Mark toilet paper, the other with paper towels. I already have plenty of both but not enough to last for a prolonged shortage. I anticipate ordering two more boxes just like these in a week or so to top things off. It isn't like they go bad and my position always is this:
It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
That is true for TP and food and ammo and lots of other stuff. Being prepared doesn't mean you are prepared to fight with your fellow citizen over the last pack of Charmin at the Wal-Mart.
Lockdowns are coming and soon. As with everything else, the time to get ready for the next round which will likely be worse than the first is right now.
