Lockdowns Forever: Biden, Dems to Impose Restrictions Even with Vaccine in the Pipeline
Joe Biden is being advised to immediately enact strict new mandates and institute lockdowns as soon as he takes office in mid-January. This despite the fact a pair of vaccines are about to end the pandemic. The unconstitutional measures are driven by political and authoritarian impulses.
President Trump and his lawyers continues to uncover the extent to which voter fraud swayed tallies in battleground states such as Pennsylvania. Trump’s team does not allege that mass voter fraud was conducted across the country, but rather, it was targeted and done only in a handful of swing states that Joe Biden needed to win in order to secure 270 electoral votes.
In Georgia, a pair of Senate runoffs could hand liberals the majority needed to pass the party’s radical agenda. If both Democrats win the elections in January, then Democrats will control the White House, House of Representatives and Senate. There will be nothing to stop Joe Biden and the aggressive left-wing faction of his party from passing their most radical agenda items. The Green New Deal, court packing, Medicaid for All…all of these things would be an inevitability.
Democrats are clearly testing the waters to see how far they can go in terms of eliminating freedoms. What makes their ultimatums politically transparent is the fact that Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are expected to be released within weeks.
“The FDA wants to see two months of safety monitoring for at least half of the 30,000 people in the trial, a milestone Moderna expects by the end of November,” The Wall Street Journal reports. “In the early look, the company said no significant safety concerns were reported, and the vaccine was generally well-tolerated, with injection-site pain for some people after the first dose, and fatigue, headache, and joint pain after the second.”
Former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb recently indicated that with 20 million doses from Pfizer and Moderna going into circulation and more on their heels, COVID could be completely eradicated in the coming months. Other’s estimate that as many as 60 million doses could be released by year’s end.
“Once we get these vaccines, in sufficient qualities, heading in 2021, the combination of the fact that a lot of the population will have already had Covid, combined with the fact that we’ll be vaccinating the public with a highly effective vaccine, we could effectively end this pandemic in 2021 with our technology,” Gottlieb said.
Widespread testing has revealed an increasing number of Americans have endured the virus and developed antibodies. With infection testing-rates up and hospitalizations and deaths in retreat, it seems counterintuitive for Democrats to be pushing for more economic devastation.
But decreased deaths isn’t stopping some Democrats from enacting new sanctions, curfews and lockdowns. Several Democrat Governors have announced these actions just this week, among them are California Governor Gavin Newsom, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Governor Whitmer, whose previous orders have been reversed by the state’s supreme court, plans to shutter businesses such as restaurants and thinks she has the power to outlaw Thanksgiving. Her recent mandate states that indoor family gatherings cannot exceed two households — TWO! Her illegal order runs through Thanksgiving and was issued by using the Michigan Dept. of Health and Human Services as a way to do an end-around of the state’s GOP-majority legislature.
“Instead of working with our elected representatives at the state and local level, she is trying a one-size-fits-all approach that will only exacerbate the issues our state and its economy are facing,” Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox reportedly said. “Small businesses, particularly restaurants, cannot sustain themselves through another lock-down, and these new orders will certainly spell doom for the livelihood of many.”
Joe Biden could stop all of this and promise he will not lockdown the country ever again, the last of which sent our economy spiraling downward and caused over 20 million Americans to lose their jobs. But Biden hasn’t said anything like that. Many anticipate he will lead from behind and bend to the political will of Democrat extremism. In fact, one of Joe Biden’s advisors recently floated a 4- to 6-week national lockdown during an interview.
“We are in … the most dangerous public health period since 1918,” adviser Dr. Michael Osterholm reportedly said on Meet the Press. “If we don’t take important steps like stop swapping air with our neighbors, our friends, our colleagues, we’re going to see numbers grow substantially.”
Lockdowns and other restrictions have already proven to have negative results and did not tamp down the spread. It’s obvious the Democratic Party is still politically motivated to exercise authoritarian rule and sow chaos until the final election results are certified.
