Wag The Dog

The Biden Administration is failing with their agenda.  Build Back better dead, voting rights bill appears dead.  Failing on promises to eradicate covid, failed with OSHA mandate.  Inflation highest in 40 years.  Low approval ratings for the Admin.

War with Russia over Ukraine on the horizon?

May be just the head fake or diversion for the Chicoms to make a move on Taiwan. The CCP's boy Brandon has not yet paid any dividends to them for their efforts on Nov. 3rd to install him as POTUS.

Depression is up three fold.
Teen suicide up.
Domestic violence up.

Since all these people supposedly voted for Joe, and just "wanted their country back" it looks like he'd have a little more support than this and people would be a bit happier - but no.

Probably, and he'll do it against the will of the people.

Brandon is keeping happy who he needs to keep happy - military industrial complex, big Pharma, big tech, banks, Hunter's foreign pals....

It seems way more credible to me that the election was stolen, than to admit (disturbingly so) that conspiracy theory of enough Republicans and Independents went brain dead to elect Joe Brandon and Kacklin' Kamala by a wide margin. They bought his so called "centrist campaign message", then doubted any chance of a stolen election only to stand with their jaws on the ground when he advocates Leftist tyranny under their noses. Examples:

Vaccine Mandates - he said he wouldn't do as a candidate. He thought he was a good enough salesman.
Abolish the Senate Fillibuster - he said he was opposed to that in the past. If the filibuster had been successfully abolished, every Trump voter who swung their vote to Brandon in 2020 should be summarily hung for being stupid! Because the Leftist pack wolves would have devoured freedom as we know it.
Not to mention the utter failure with Covid, where in 2021 WITH a vaccine, he had more deaths than Trump did in 2020 WITHOUT the blessed vaccine.

While I believe there was something rotten in Denmark about the election, there were a lot of centrist Republicans and Independents that voted for Biden.  4+ years of Orange Man Bad had them voting for Biden.  If you lived in a purple or blue state you would not be thinking it is a conspiracy theory that many folks like that voted for Biden.

At the very best there were a lot of "ballots" for Biden, but people that actually clicked Biden, NO! But if it did happen, it would still stand that those voters were out of their minds stupid. What were they thinking? What remote improvement could Brandon have brought to the office even theoretically? Especially with a Radical Democrat House and Senate? We've only been saved from total government implosion by Manchin and Sinema in the Senate. Not something I want to let down my guard about.

Oh yeah in my previous post I forgot about gargantuan Brandon failures 1) the open borders in the face of a snot slinging horror from the public and the media over Covid and masking and vaccines. and 2) the catastrophe in Afghanistan.

Nothing in Biden's resume' should have given anyone a fuzzy feeling with a Radical Congress. AND RINOs foaming at the mouth to join in with them. With the swamp the "Bad Orange Man" had to deal with, I would take his accomplishments every day and twice on Sunday along with his mean talk. I believe the majority of actual voters voted vastly in favor of Trump. The choice was too clear. A blind hog could have found that acorn. Too many head scratches on election night for me. Something BIG went down (the Nov 3rd SUCCESSFUL insurrection), and an incompetent radical piece of crap was later inaugurated. I'm not buying that America went brain dead.

How is out of his character?  He thinks he did something phenomenal.  And it would have been, had it worked.

It is within his character to not back down when he thinks he is right, even if it is to his detriment.

Brandon is a day late and a dollar short on everything. He promised he was going to be right on this virus, if elected! Such a liar and a loser, and we're paying the price.
Remember during his campaign he promised all those free testing kits for us? He's finally get around to it. Starting sometime next week, we can order one online, and in about two weeks they should ship out - they should. So maybe in about a month some of us will be getting a test kit - may be. This new variant wave will be fizzling out by then.

Personally TC, I don't think he was ever on board with the efficacy OR the safety of the vaccines, but he did in fact want to crow about getting it done quickly. But I think he is baiting someone somehow or building a case to defend himself when the actual truth of the danger of the vaccines comes out, if ever. And I do believe that will happen for sure eventually as more and more vaxxed people drop dead. Part of the epic and sordid Covid story.

Mommydi, why do you want to get tested? The Omicron variant is said to be vastly milder than the Alpha and Delta version was? I don't see any reason to be tested unless it's required at someone's work. I would much rather search and find a source for inhalable Budesonide. Which my wife and I used a couple of weeks ago after we got flu-like symptoms between Christmas and New Years. That was our second stint (likely Omicron I believe) in about 6 months and we never got tested, mainly because our doctor said she didn't see any reason for it since she treats all respiratory viruses the same, ie primarily prevent the lung filling up.

At least one made a bold claim that Omicron’s extremely high transmissibility could also be a “blessing”, as it amounts to a “natural vaccine”.

I do live in a purple state, and my experience of it is this...

Lots of independents voted against Trump, but virtually no conservatives/Republicans did.  Some of them stayed home, but that doesn't explain the huge number of votes for Biden that we saw.

Those votes came from the people who usually AREN'T voters at all.  Something inspired them to get off their couches, register, and vote for Biden, and it should be patently obvious that it wasn't Biden's eloquence, message, or credibility.

Actually I think it is too. Probably the smartest thing that could have been done since the jabs are questionable at best. But it will give Brandon something to take credit for, though I doubt he or any of the medical establishment had anything to do with it.

Herd immunity would present an unusual paradigm for the Left to function in without such a handy distraction as 24/7 covid fear porn and the ensuing delicious lockdowns.

If the Omicron variety of COVID-19 does become the road to herd immunity, and I believe it will, Biden, along with Fauci and the rest of the Leftists, will take credit for it, claiming that their vaccine mandates, the mask mandates and the lockdowns were what finally brought COVID to its knees.  And since that was the major selling point of the Biden campaign and the emphasis of his first year as President, the general population will give that credit to him.  Whether or not that saves his Presidency remains to be seen; but it will improve his approval ratings.  I doubt that his ratings will improve much because his adherence to the Leftist economic views will continue and that will not be good for the general public.

The ONE good thing is if their was a ground swell of blinded people thinking Brandon was a centrist and/or a needed change from Trump that will be ratified as a YUGE mistake, if not already so. I still contend Brandon did not win legitimately. Some glassy-eyed “conservatives” may have swung their vote to Brandon for some reason, but not substantially enough. The election was just plain stolen on several levels including cyber vote swapping in collusion with our adversary the CCP and the mail in ballot slight of hand brought about intentionally and premeditatedly  by the plandemic. If there was an insurrection, it occurred leading up to and including November 3rd, 2020.

What I want to know is this.

From John Hopkins

According to Johns Hopkins University’s data on COVID-19 deaths, since Jan. 1, there have been approximately 353,000 deaths from the pandemic. This is about a thousand more COVID-19 deaths than in all of 2020.

Oct 11 2021
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/more-people-will-have-died-from-covid-under-biden-than-trump/ar-AAPnEM6

Yet Biden had the vaccines, which were supposed to keep people from dieing and out of the hospital.

It would seem to me that there were less people to be hospitalized and die then Trump had but in fact according to Johns Hpikins in Oct 2021, about 1000 more people died then all of 2020, so that means there weremore deaths among less people. ::headscratch::

Enter in Omicron. The savior of us all as this is supposed to finally get us to herd immunity... and then to an endemic stage.

We were told Omicron was a milder form and not as dangerous.

Why is it then that more people are going to the hospital and many hospitals are having more admissions then they had in 2020.  From unvaccinated to fully vaccinated.

If I am going to end up in the hospital anyway. And people are not needing ventilators and few, if any are dieing.... then why
get the shots?  What is the purpose?

And if it is milder, why does anyone need to go to the hospital?

And why worry about a herd immunity when this will be an endemic that means every year , probably in the winter time... we will be hounded again and again over masks and shots.... neither one of which work?

Hopefully Omicron will end the “pandemic”, but it will then become ENDEMIC, not actually going away all together. In my opinion most doctors refusing to utilize perfectly good therapeutics for some reason (I think I know the reason) is causing people not to get the lung filling under control. I have come to the point of needing hospitalization several times over a sinus infection. It isn’t the severity of the infection, but the utter failure of keeping the lungs clear. I have been guilty of that, but won’t with Covid of any variety.

I think Brandon et al had nothing to do with the Omicron being slid in on us for herd immunity because the vaccine tyranny is just too delicious for the evil fascists. And to the blinded, it gives the appearance that Brandon is engaged and doing something useful and oroductive with the menace of Covid, which the death counts prove he has not as compared to the supposed bumbling Orange Man.

Agree, and I've been saying this since the last campaign cycle. The candidate who won in 2020 would naturally get the credit for ending covid. Whether that president had an effective strategy or fumbled it so badly that he made things worse - he'd get credit when the virus naturally starts to fizzle.

And yes, Brandon's failed strategy on covid won't matter much to him politically in the long run. The virus will start to fizzle and he'll claim credit, and many dumb-bunny Americans will nod in approval.

Whether Biden has anything to do with the clearing of the COVID pandemic or not, he will get credit for it.  And I have no doubt that Fauci, Gates and Big Pharma, were probably aware of the eventual clearing because that is how such viruses work.  The flu pandemic in the early 1900s was worse than this one and it eventually cleared. All that Fauci and company had to do was to manage to stick around long enough for it to eventually clear and they would reap the benefits by getting very rich in the process. That they managed to help instill authoritarian governance in the meantime is all rather beside the point for them.  Unless there is a reckoning very soon, this country is well on its way to becoming another Venezuela, Argentina, Cuba, etc.  The populace is well groomed to let that happen.  I am not sure that even a retaking of the House and Senate by the Republicans will stop that.

This thread was really about the possibility of Biden's Admin pushing for war to dig themselves out of the covid/inflation, etc fiascos that they have gotten into.  A war over Ukraine could be more likely.
