When You Don’t Tell the Truth At First, Don’t Be Surprised If Fewer People Believe You Later

My good friend William Teach of The Pirate’s Cove noted that the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, sitting in full on an appeal of a ruling by a three-judge panel, blocked President Biden’s mandate that all federal employees must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Mr Teach’s money line:

And, even with the mandate, people who got vaxxed were still getting COVID and still dying.

And this was the entire problem. If the ‘vaccines’ had actually been vaccines, had actually prevented the vaccinated from contracting COVID-19, vaccine resistance would have vanished. But it wasn’t long after the ‘vaccines’ became available to everyone that we started to hear reports of ‘breakthrough’ cases, of people who had been fully vaccinated — defined at the time as 14 days past their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines — contracting the Peking pox.

Then we were told that perhaps a few breakthrough cases could be expected, but the vaccines would make the illness caused much milder, and the vaccinated could not transmit the virus to others.

Then we were told that yeah, even if you’ve been vaccinated, you can transmit the disease to other people, but it still wouldn’t be as serious.

Then, prior to the winter of 2021-2022, President Biden told us:

For unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death — if you’re unvaccinated — for themselves, their families, and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm.

But there’s good news: If you’re vaccinated and you had your booster shot, you’re protected from severe illness and death — period.

There was no “winter of severe illness and death” for the unvaccinated, nor were those who were vaccinated protected from catching the Beijing bug. Even Dr Fauxi said that, eventually, almost everyone would contract the virus:

FDA Head: ‘Most people are going to get COVID’

By Ralph Ellis | January 13, 2022

With a record number of COVID-19 cases being reported, two top U.S. health officials made a stark prediction on Tuesday: Most Americans eventually will be infected with the virus.

“I think it’s hard to process what’s actually happening right now, which is most people are going to get COVID,” FDA acting Commissioner Janet Woodcock, MD, told the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee.

Woodcock had been asked if the United States needed to change its COVID strategy. She said people need to accept the reality of widespread infection so the nation can focus on maintaining “continuity of operations” in crucial sectors.

“What we need to do is make sure the hospitals can still function, transportation, you know, other essential services are not disrupted while this happens,” she said. “I think after that will be a good time to reassess how we’re approaching this pandemic.”

Anthony Fauci, MD, chief White House medical adviser, said COVID will infect “just about everybody.”

“Omicron, with its extraordinary, unprecedented degree of efficiency of transmissibility, will ultimately find just about everybody,” Fauci said in a virtual fireside chat with the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The virus kept mutating, and we were told that, seemingly with every mutation, it was becoming increasingly contagious, but not to worry, the vaccines would keep us from getting seriously ill. But we were also told that, thank goodness, the Omicron variant didn’t make people as ill as the previous ones.

So, was the less serious illness caused by the vaccines, or was it simply that the virus wasn’t as virulent?

And therein lies the problem: if we had been told the truth all along, people wouldn’t be doubting the government’s word!

With the panic of the panicdemic, ‘government officials’ and ‘medical experts’ were telling us things that they really didn’t know, but — and this is my most charitable way of putting it — believed and hoped were true, enhanced by wishful thinking. When their statements and assurances did not turn out to be accurate, the CDC’s definition of vaccine was changed, and that did not go unnoticed.

Of course, as with any medication, some people suffered serious side effects, and one of the side effects was death. Those numbers were small, but they were not zero, and a public disgusted with the ‘government officials’ and ‘medical experts’ lying to us telling us things they did not know to be true kept pushing those stories forward.

Because the pandemic was mostly a panicdemic, and state and local governments were enforcing draconian and authoritarian measures to combat COVID-19, people were wholly disgusted with what was happening. Even if something absolutely truthful was said, it was met with skepticism and doubt. That’s kind of what happens: when people have been lied to before, they tend not to believe anything the ‘experts’ say in the future. The panic of the panicdemic led to the introduction of the ‘vaccines’ before the normal, years-long testing procedures on which the CDC/FDA normally insist.

Given that it was a ruling by the full Circuit Court of Appeals, the Biden Administration has only one route of appeal left, to the United States Supreme Court. With a solid majority of conservative Justices, one wouldn’t expect the Administration to win there. More, on January 30, 2023, the Biden Administration announced its intent to end the national emergency and public health emergency declarations on May 11, 2023, related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unless the Administration chooses to go beyond that May date, which is slightly under seven weeks from today, an appeal to the Supreme Court would be useless.

This has taken far, far, far too long. The real problem for the government is that the public are not just tired, but well past tired, of the government’s authoritarian dictates. Very few people wear masks in public now, to the point at which those few who do are noticed, and if not mocked to their faces, frequently thought of uncharitably. Our family’s airline travels have shown us airports in Europe and the Middle East have no mask or vaccination mandates, and very few passengers in those sealed aluminum tubes with wings choose to wear masks. The SARS-CoV-2 virus may still be around, but as far as people in at least American and Europe are concerned, it’s not anything with which they are seriously concerned.
