During her interview on Fox News Friday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky stated the Biden administration was considering requiring coronavirus vaccination on the federal level stating it was something she thought was being looked in to.
A short time later, Walensky then tweeted a retraction stating:
To clarify: There will be no nationwide mandate. I was referring to mandates by private institutions and portions of the federal government. There will be no federal mandate.
— Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH (@CDCDirector) July 30, 2021
Walensky clearly said the Biden administration was thinking about a national vaccine requirement. Even Biden himself s aid it was still a question whether or not the White House could implement such a mandate and he even predicted more COVID-19 restrictions when questioned by a reporter on Friday as well. However, it wasn’t long before a White House spokesperson retracted Biden’s initial statements on the matter either.
These kinds of declarations and retractions, including their ending coronavirus briefings after being taken to task, including their recent mandate that federal workers get vaccinated are too coincidental for people such as Rochelle Walensky or Joe Biden to conduct Freudian slips. It also doesn’t help that the CDC changed its guidelines by exaggerating the risks of infection using a report citing nearly 400 people infected in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with no reported deaths as one of its sources.
All of this really demonstrates how far the administration and the left generally is willing to go to use the Delta variant to its advantage not only to manipulate and control people but also distract from its disastrous policies at the U.S.-Mexico border and the sagging economy. No doubt when other versions of COVID-19 come to the U.S., unfortunately, the left will weaponize them too.
