Advisers Urge Biden To Change COVID-19 Strategy

Published

Joe Biden

Six public health advisers who advised President Biden during his presidential transition published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one aimed at learning how to live with the virus.

“The authors are all big names in American medicine; several, including Dr. Luciana Borio, a former acting chief scientist at the Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. David Michaels, a former head of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, have held high-ranking government positions,” The New York Times reported. “The driving force behind the articles is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, an oncologist, medical ethicist and University of Pennsylvania professor who advised former President Barack Obama.”

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” the outlet added.

The call for a new strategy comes after the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases despite Biden’s promise to “shut down the virus” during his 2020 presidential campaign.

“To be better prepared for inevitable outbreaks, they suggest that the administration lay out goals and specific benchmarks, including what number of hospitalizations and deaths from respiratory viruses, including the coronavirus, that should trigger emergency measures,” The New York Times added. “The authors say the administration needs to acknowledge that Omicron may not mark the end of the pandemic — and to plan for a future that they concede is unknowable. They also make clear that the current rate of Covid hospitalizations and deaths is unacceptably high.”

    “by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay.”

    Of course it’s here to stay as long as the vaxxed keep catching & spreading it thanks to the vax. When the vaxxed all die off, then maybe we will be free of it.

    We wouldn’t have all of these hospitalizations & deaths if the govt would have given doctors the ability to use HCQ & Ivermectin in the beginning stages of viral infection, and instruct people in what to do to strengthen their immune systems so they would be less likely to even get infected with covid! The govt has blood on its hands!!!

    “Learning how to live with the virus” – simply means reviewing the CDC’s statistics, the ones that show that COVID is NOT a dangerous threat to the human species, does NOT kill an unacceptable number of healthy people under the age of 65, and does NOT warrant shutdown or radical changes in social behaviors.

    Not helpful. Still no realization that there is NO VACCINE ANSWER TO any CORONA VIRUSES and never will be. The answer is in early treatment CURES. Zinc WITH SHUTTLE into cells with Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin or Quercetin, IV Large dose (50g min.) VitC, Hydrogen Peroxide w/Nebulizer, Regeneron Monoclonal

    As practiced, Healthcare is primarily a business.
    Any commonly used agent/therapy must generate substantial and even unconscionable revenue for the pharmaceutical companies, the hospitals, and the physicians, or it will never be used or even properly investigated.
    More likely, it will be suppressed because there is more Politics in Medicine than in Politics.

    It is about time. The numbers of hospitalizations are partly due to scaring people so much that they believe they are going to die if they test positive. Stop the fear mongering. Make early treatment available easily and cheaply. Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine work wonders. Stop lying. This is a treatable disease if caught early. Start treating it and watch the hospital visits and deaths go away.

    They give such vague responses. Looks like “pass the Buck”

    So when will the Biden Admin turn to therapeutics that Pres Trump talked about last year and Dr. Malone, McCulloch and Dr.kory along with so many others have advocated for this past year plus?
    What the hell is wrong with Fauci and the President? Enough with the vaccines that clearly do not work and now we are more in debt than ever to Big Pharma -financially – if we had used tried and true ivermectin and or hydroxychlor– both generic and proven to prevent major illness millions of lives would have been saved.
    Biden needs to wake up and ignore or fire Fauci – this is a catastrophe!!

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
