The White House is entertaining additional lockdowns

| July 30, 2021

Joe Biden previously indicated that excessive lockdowns, shutdowns, etc. could be avoided. This is the same individual who previously indicated that the fully vaccinated could go mask less. As recent news reports indicate, the fully vaccinated are being required to now mask up at many federal installations. Members of Team Biden hint that “they would go by the science”. If this means “more lockdowns”, this may be the direction they’ll push.

From Townhall:

“Because we listen to the scientists, we listen to the expert[s] — this is a public health situation,” responded Jean-Pierre, who spoke maskless at the podium. “This is not about politics at all, this is about saving lives, and this is what the President is all about… and you see that in the numbers,” she added. “Now we’re at a point where we have to double down and make it very very clear to people that we can’t let the pandemic win,” which is apparently the signal the White House thinks a reimposition of mask mandates — even for vaccinated Americans — is sending.

“If scientists come to you at some point down the line and say it is our opinion that there should be shutdowns and there should be school closures, you would do that?” asked Doocy in a follow-up question.

“Like I said, we listen to the CDC and the expert[s] and their guidance,” said Jean-Pierre without ruling out the possibility that Americans could see more lockdowns and school closures. “The CDC is a body that is very well-respected and we follow their guidance,” she added.

As Townhall has covered, the administration was caught seemingly plagiarizing teacher union statements for official CDC guidance for schools back in May. And a poll released in March found that just 52% of Americans have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of trust in the CDC, while one-in-five said they trust the CDC “not very much” or “not at all.”

Is that morale improved yet? Townhall.com has more on this story.

    Why not go back to lockdowns… we know those are so effective at controlling nothing

      Except people

      Will “mostly peaceful demonstrations to fight systemic racism” still be allowed? Somehow the powers that Be came to the conclusion that 10,000 in one area clashing with others while burning and looting would not qualify as a super-spreader, but 30 people in a church would be the catalyst of the end of the world. Pretty sure that The French Laundry in Northern California will still be hosting dinner parties for the Governor, though.

    These mofos are right on the verge of finding out that “people control” is gonna work about as well as “gunz control”…or “The War on Drugs”.

    Anybody want to help me put another layer of chain link fencings up? Them gnats are bad this year.

    As a antisocial socialist, I welcome being locked down! That gives me more time to “massage my empirical evidence”

    “The CDC is a body that is very well-respected and we follow their guidance”. Where is the CDC well-respected? Other than at The Seagull’s AntiFa gatherings.

      It seems they have great favor with the formerly-Supreme Court of these States United and a group of self-interested persons, funds, and businesses that benefit from the CDC’s unlawful decrees.

      I don’t go around wishing pain on anyone, but if The Gremlin Doctor from Hell’s colon prolapsed live on TV and he shuffled of that mortal coil covered in feces for the world to watch over-and-over…. he may have served a function: warning of karmic restitution.

    “We will go by the science”. Really! What a fucking laugh that is. First, who’s science, Fauci’s? Second, what about the abundant science saying to leave things alone and let the virus run its course, which it probably already has.

  6. Did the Supreme Ruler start blaming Pres. Trump yet on the 2nd varient of the Chi-Com virus to Keep the virus’s going as to keep the public from seeing how the DC Kremlin is going down the tubes. My Neighbor who says he is an indy, didn’t vote for the Supreme Ruler or Pres. Trump but wrote rommney on the ballot says that cnn says one person can spread the varient to nine people. Was this from the cdc so as to keep it going and keep the public under control??? and how can they tell if nine people can be infected from one person.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      The R0 (Are nought) is a projection (read: Scientific Wild Ass Guess) based on some limited sampling of spread and extrapolated to the population at large.

      The behavior of viral transmission is relatively well known, but I’m not sure the CDC eggheads weighted their SWAG against the observed seasonality of transmissions.

      Why would a respiratory illness spike early-mid summer? I’m not a Doctor so I could offer a theory from the medical side. Knowing human behavior I’d say because of travel and increased likelihood of human contact. All colds tend to do it, this is normal.

      I wish they’d justify the R value of 9, thats unreal. Just to put that into perspective, covid-original recipe was 1.2-1.6, the Delta 9? 550% increase?

      Imfookingpossible.

    OK, OK, OK, I will do what I can to crank up the worse cold on record and sneeze all over everybody within 10 feet of me, particularly anyone running for or in office.

    Bring out yer dead!!!! Bring out yer dead!!!!

    Happy now????
