(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The Biden administration has flip-flopped on its ability to predict future pandemics while asking for more money to fight an apparent second pandemic, most likely to arrive before the midterms if Democrats have their way.
In December, Vice President Kamala Harris said, “We didn’t see Delta coming. I think most scientists did not upon whose advice and direction we have relied didn’t see Delta coming.”
In the same interview, Harris also said that “We didn’t see Omicron coming. And that is the nature of what this, this awful virus, has been, which as it turns out, has mutations and variants.”
In December, the White House was sensibly stating that it could not predict the future of the virus’s development. Recently, however, the White House has made an abrupt about-face on its ability to predict virus mutations.
President Biden said, “We need more money to plan for the second pandemic.”
He insisted that “there is going to be another pandemic.”
Biden’s prediction of another pandemic means, in his aged mind, that “we have to think ahead, that’s something we have been doing fairly well.”
Biden did not account for the apparent contradiction with his VP’s past statement.
Biden said, “[thinking ahead about future virus’ was] not something the last outfit did very well.”
Biden’s claim that his administration has “done fairly well,” looking for future pandemics comes after his administration saw more Americans die of COVID-19 than President Trump’s. This increased mortality came, despite Biden having an advanced warning of the danger compared to Trump and being set with a workable vaccine thanks to Trump.
