One of Joe Biden’s explicit goals for his administration, originally announced to considerable fanfare, was to get at least 70% of Americans to take at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Independence Day.
That day is now less than a month away, and as it inches closer, it’s becoming increasingly clear that this goal will not be met.
When you consider how many “incentives” have been offered to people to convince them to get vaccinated — from entry into a lottery in Ohio to free burgers and fires in New York City to free weed in Washington — the fact that America likely won’t hit this goal is quite sad.
According to a recent report from the Associated Press, the country would need to have at least another 15.5 million people get at least one dose of the vaccine in the next four weeks to reach this goal. However, less than 400,000 people per day are now agreeing to get vaccinated.
The “Experts” Have No One But Themselves to Blame for Vaccine Hesitancy
The entire COVID-19 pandemic has been a source for misleading statements, doublespeak and outright lies issued by both experts and conspiracy theorists. However, we expect more out of our “experts.”
There is no evidence — and there has never been any evidence — that children are a major source of spread for COVID-19. Children also tend to have the mildest cases of the disease. Despite this, many schools across the country remain closed.
Anthony Fauci’s recently released e-mails reveal him to be perhaps the biggest liar in the country. Not only has he demonstrably flip-flopped on every issue from mask-wearing to the necessity of lockdowns, but we now know that, in private, Fauci had rather different views than those he expressed in public.
Fauci was aware of the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 may have escaped from a lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. He even regarded the theory as plausible in his e-mail correspondence. But publicly, he rejected the theory as absurd. Only recently has he changed his tune.
Furthermore, a recent study from the Washington School of Medicine shows that people who have antibodies to the virus have lasting protection, and that the idea that antibodies disappear after three months was made up.
And now, a recent study released by the Cleveland Clinic shows that there is no difference in protection against the virus offered to those who have natural antibodies and those who have been vaccinated.
In the face of so many lies and so much shoddy science from the experts, what sane person would ever trust them?
