Shortly following the joint recommendation from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday to “pause the use” of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, former President Donald Trump slammed the decision, accusing the FDA of favoritism toward Pfizer and its vaccine.
Tuesday morning, the two federal agencies issued a statement “recommending a pause in the use of this [Johnson & Johnson] vaccine out of an abundance of caution” as they review data “involving 6 reported U.S. cases of a rare & severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the vaccine.” They note, importantly, that “these adverse events appear to be extremely rare” right now. Furthermore, they stated that over 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine have been administered throughout the U.S., as of Monday.
On Tuesday too, Johnson & Johnson issued a statement saying that it has decided to “proactively delay the rollout” of its vaccine in Europe.
Later that morning, Trump issued a scathing statement opposing the move and going after his successor’s administration.
“The Biden administration did a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the FDA and CDC to call a ‘pause’ in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine,” the 45th U.S. president began.
“The results of this vaccine have been extraordinary but now it’s [sic] reputation will be permanently challenged,” he added, predicting that the “people who have already taken the vaccine will be up in arms”.
Trump then started to accuse the FDA of preferential treatment toward the vaccine of Pfizer, one of Johnson & Johnson’s main competitors with the U.S., with the other being Moderna. Unlike its two main competitors’ vaccines, which require two doses for full inoculation, the Johnson & Johnson one only requires one dose, which carries its own pros and cons.
“[P]erhaps all of this was done for politics or perhaps it’s the FDA’s love for Pfizer,” Trump posited. “The FDA, especially with long time bureaucrats within, has to be controlled. They should not be able to do such damage for possibly political reasons, or maybe because their friends at Pfizer have suggested it. They’ll do things like this to make themselves look important.”
“Remember, it was the FDA working with Pfizer, who announced the vaccine approval two days after the 2020 Presidential Election,” the former president added. It should be noted that, according to The Hill, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has said that the vaccine’s viability was announced as soon as possible.
“They didn’t like me very much because I pushed them extremely hard,” he said before arguing again that there would be no vaccine if he had not been in the Oval Office. “But if I didn’t, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for 3-5 years, or maybe not at all. It takes them years to act!”
“Do your testing, clean up the record, and get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back online quickly.”
In response from the FDA and CDC’s move, Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator, issued a statement Tuesday saying that the agencies’ recommendation “will not have a significant impact on our vaccination plan: Johnson & Johnson vaccine makes up less than 5 percent of the recorded shots in arms in the United States to date.”

‘Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.’ a fight for truth, not dangerous woke agenda
“Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.”
It seems logical but logic is a rarity in our world, where even physicians are willing to push fantasy ideology instead of science.
That’s what happened during a House hearing Thursday, when Dr. Bhavik Kumar, medical director for primary and trans care at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, told lawmakers under questioning from Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA, “men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”
Men cannot become pregnant. It’s a dangerous lie.
It is not based on science and wishing it is true doesn’t make it true. It defy’s common sense. Just decades ago making that statement would have been met with laughter or deep concern for the mental health status of the person who made it. Why? Because of science and common sense.
Human reproduction and our sex is determined by sex chromosomes, which are XX for females, and XY for males. Those chromosomes also give us distinctly different appearances as well, no matter what a human being wishes they could be. And yes, there are some people born with ambiguous genitalia, meaning they have both and the Mayo Clinic goes into great detail about this disorder.
However, don’t let common sense stop those who want to make the world believe – especially our young children – that is possible for men to have babies.
What is stunning is that many doctors, like Kumar, have no problem propagating this lie to the public. They are establishing a narrative that is not fact based, scientific or possible. When Clyde questioned Kumar at the House hearing, which was called by Democrat to focus on how restricting abortions can harm patients, he exposed the very bizarre reality we live in.
The hearing appeared to go off the rails after Clyde’s questioning. I’m grateful it did. Why? Because we need to understand that doctors like Kumar, as well as many special interest groups, lawmakers and teachers in our children’s lives and in their classrooms are consistently preaching a woke agenda to push narratives that contradict science, parental rights and reality. Planned Parenthood is a perfect example of these lies and Kumar its general charged with transgender rights is more than happy to push them.
This false agenda devalues human life and it is attempting to take away our identity. I believe its goal is one of social transformation unlike we’ve ever seen in history. Anyone who questions this bizarre ideological narrative is ostracized or labeled intolerant. The fear that one may be seen as intolerant keeps most people from speaking up even when the lie is blatant and absurd.
Sadly, there are too many adults spouting lies. Questioning the lie is enough to get the leftist media machine to swing into high gear – where those who question the lie are censored, banned or public chastised by the radical liberals.
What’s more bizarre is that highly educated doctors that are desperate to be seen as inclusive, or who are themselves truly ideological in their thinking, have no problem ignoring science to push a false ideological narrative.
Even they struggle to explain these bizarre beliefs.
For example, Mariel Young, Phd, said in a tweet in 2021 that “Cis women are people. Trans men are people. Non-binary people are people. Even though most pregnant people are probably cis women, it costs me nothing to acknowledge that others can be pregnant too. And women are in fact people, so…”

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh is doing phenomenal work exposing the very real dangers many children face when confronted by these extremist sexual gender beliefs and dysphoria. Many of these dangers are pushed on susceptible children by adults who have joined the gender dysphoria cult and some who are bragging about the money that can be made with these evasive permanent surgeries, like Walsh exposed in his recent documentary ‘……’
Walsh is exposing that reality behind the extremist ideology.
Walsh’s exposé on Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) transgender treatment on minors, was groundbreaking and shocking. On October 21, Walsh will “be holding a rally at the Tennessee state capitol in Nashville to push for the end of “child mutilation” in the state.”
I’m grateful that Rep. Clyde, Walsh and many others are standing up to the radical left and these very dangerous ideologies. More importantly exposing them to the public. But now each one of us needs to do the same. If we don’t expose the truth and do what’s needed to save our children, our nation and in fact, science – we will only have ourselves to blame when lies becomes the accepted normal.
Join us on October 21 at the state capitol as we rally to end child mutilation across the state. We are going to put a stop to gender ideology’s assault on our children. Come and be a part of the movement.
