The politics of vaccinations


A  year ago, before being elected President, Joe Biden was skeptical of a vaccine for COVID-19. In a September 2020 interview, Biden suggested a vaccine would be unsafe because then-President Donald Trump “continues to mislead and lie.”

He also said in the same interview, “When we finally do, God willing, get a vaccine, who’s going to take the shot? Who’s going to take the shot? Are you going to be the first one to say sign me up?”

During a campaign event, last July in Delaware, Biden raised questions, wondering if a vaccine produced while Trump was President would even be “real.”

There’s a perfectly logical reason Biden made these statements last year — politics. Prior to the election, he had to cast doubt on Operation Warp Speed and Trump’s assurances that a vaccine for the coronavirus would be available before the end of the year.

After Biden was elected President, his story changed.

Another lie that Biden and his administration has pushed on the American public since his election last November concerns mandates for vaccines. 

Starting in December 2020, Biden said in a press conference that “I don’t think it should be mandatory” when discussing Wuhan coronavirus vaccines. “I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory,” he promised. “Just like I don’t think masks have to be made mandatory nationwide.”

We were assured (lied to) not four times, not six times but 11 times that there would be no federal vaccine mandate between Biden and his administration.

In July, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked if Biden would enact a federal vaccine mandate. She explained this was “not a decision that we are making” and “that is not our intention from the federal government.”

In August, Dr. Fauci assured us that “you’re not going to see a central mandate coming from the federal government.”

But then something happened in late August that caused the Biden administration to change their position. That was the complete failure from the Afghanistan pullout where American citizens were left behind in a hostile country and 13 soldiers killed.

This debacle left Biden on the defense. So, rather than confront his failure, the administration chose to change the subject. 

It worked. It pushed Afghanistan off the news in most broadcasts and national newspapers.

On Sept. 9, Biden announced coronavirus vaccine mandates for federal workers to be fully vaccinated and required private companies with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccines for their workers or be subject to regular testing. 

It’s all politics.

Many Republican governors — including Missouri Governor Mike Parson — vowed to fight these mandates as soon as this was unveiled.

Of course, they are attacked as heartless individuals who want to see their constituents die. Again it’s political. Every Republican governor has been vaccinated, and they encourage vaccination. They are against forcing it on everyone else.

Biden said with the mandate announcement, “We’re going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers.” 

That is a stupid statement. Why do I, a vaccinated individual, have to be protected from those who are unvaccinated? That was one of the reasons I chose to be jabbed.

This is not about science. It’s about politics. You may have noticed; there is one group Biden feels no need to vaccinate. They are the 1.8 million illegal immigrants expected to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in 2021, according to a projection from Princeton Policy Advisors.

The science the Biden administration is ignoring is natural immunity — of which Connie and I also have.

According to results from an Israeli study conducted in April, covid jabbed individuals are 13 times more likely to get COVID-19 than previously infected ones who are now recovered. 

In layman’s terms: Natural immunity from already having contracted COVID-19 gives you better protection from becoming infected a second time than any one of the three vaccines available.

I believe that Biden’s statement and his mandate will do little to encourage others to join us. In the end, it’s a personal decision that everyone should make on their own, not the government.
