Language to manufacture a narrative by the media is occurring concurrently along with behind the scenes feints by the Biden Administration to see what the people are willing to put up with – and how far the law can be stretched.

Within just the title and subtitle of their reporting, The Associated Press (AP) used the words ‘tougher,’ ‘aggressive,’ ‘pressure,’ and ‘powers.’ The recent report by AP titled Biden Eyes Tougher Vaccine Rules Without Provoking Backlash then continues to use words like ‘forced,’ ‘assertive,’ and ‘imposing’ in an attempt to paint a picture of a strong Biden Administration who would love to use full force vaccine mandates, but just can’t right now. Why can’t they? The AP makes no attempt to hide the fact writing it’s “…a precarious balancing act as Biden works to make life more uncomfortable for the unvaccinated without spurring a backlash in a deeply polarized country that would only undermine his public health goals.” Precarious indeed.

In the article, White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients claims “Through vaccination requirements, employers have the power to help end the pandemic,” without describing how and what exactly the end of the pandemic will entail. The recent open admissions by CDC director Rochelle Walensky that the experimental Covid vaccine/gene therapies have failed to stop both infection and transmission against the Delta variant making vaccine requirements a nonstarter. Zients ignores this point to pivot towards rallying employers to become quasi-medical enforcement arms coercing Americans into accepting an experimental gene therapy product no longer able to stop infection or transmission of the virus it was designed to combat.

Zients also missed the many public health leaders around the world who are unequivocally stating that, in light of the known vaccine failure, herd immunity isn’t achievable with the current posture. Professor Sir Andrew Pollard, Professor of Pediatric Infection and Immunity at the University of Oxford and Director of the Oxford Vaccine Group recently admitted that in light of the vaccine failure, any chance of attaining herd immunity is ‘impossible’ calling the idea ‘mythical.’

We don’t have anything that will stop transmission, so I think we are in a situation here with this current variant where herd immunity is not a possibility because it still infects vaccinated individuals.” said Pollard.

Iceland’s head epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason echoed Pollard’s views for his own country as Iceland’s website reports:

“…it is disappointing that herd immunity has not been achieved with vaccination. He says that only one other way is able to achieve herd immunity, to allow the virus to spread throughout the community.

“We really can not do anything else,” says Þórólfur when asked whether the nation of seventy to eighty [percent] must be allowed to become infected to achieve herd immunity

Then AP dropped the bombshell writing:

Still, while more severe measures — such as mandating vaccines for interstate travel or changing how the federal government reimburses treatment for those who are unvaccinated and become ill with COVID-19 — have been discussed, the administration worried that they would be too polarizing for the moment.

Too polarizing for the moment” in a “deeply polarized country” brought on primarily by public health officials who are feverishly working to “make life more uncomfortable for the unvaccinated.”

That’s the plan…at the moment…got it.

You get what you accept” -Dr. Scott Atlas
