Surprise: US Citizens Are Skeptical Of Government Health Advice

In other words, citizens have had enough of government dictating their lives, and even the NY Times has noticed

Americans Suffer Pandemic Whiplash as Leaders Struggle With Changing Virus

A week of public health reversals from the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has left Americans with pandemic whiplash, sowing confusion about coronavirus vaccines and mask-wearing as the Delta variant upends what people thought they knew about how to stay safe.

Vaccines remain effective and highly protective against hospitalization and death, even among those infected with the extremely contagious Delta variant. Mask-wearing prevents transmission of the virus to those most at risk.

But the crisis President Biden once thought he had under control is changing shape faster than the country can adapt. An evolving virus, new scientific discoveries, deep ideological divides and 18 months of ever-changing pandemic messaging have left Americans skeptical of public health advice. So although the White House had promised a “summer of joy,” the nation is instead caught in a summer of confusion.

“While we desperately want to be done with this pandemic, Covid-19 is clearly not done with us, and so our battle must last a little longer,” Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the C.D.C., told reporters on Monday. “This is hard. This is heavy. But we are in this together.”

We are? If so, why are the big shots so contradictory on their actions? Why do they tell us masks work (the don’t. China Joe’s top COVID advisor said the don’t, Fauci said the don’t, and the numbers say they don’t)

Another administration official said Mr. Biden would address the nation later this week — the second time in less than a week — to reiterate and clarify his main takeaway points: The vaccines are safe and effective. The reason even vaccinated people have to mask up again is that so many people are unvaccinated. So go get your shots and tell your friends and neighbors to do the same.

He should just let people read the message off the teleprompter, because he’ll sound like his typical dementia self.

But Dr. del Rio said the C.D.C. made a misstep in May when it told vaccinated Americans they did not need to wear masks — not because the science behind the recommendation was wrong, but because the move led everyone to doff their masks and prompted states, localities and retail businesses to abandon their mask requirements, which enabled the Delta variant to flourish.

Wait, the science says that vaccinated people do not need to wear masks? This is all Pandemic Theater? You know what would help? Tell people to social distance, wash their hands, don’t touch their face. And distance. And don’t touch each other. Masks make people think they can get close. Thin pieces of cloth that do virtually nothing.

Biden mask flip-flop could flush vaccine progress ‘down the drain,’ officials fear

The Biden administration’s rollout of the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control’s latest mask guidance split senior officials into rival camps: those who encourage new action as the situation changes versus those worried about undermining the vaccines.

Multiple Biden administration officials expressed frustration to the Washington Examiner about media coverage the new guidance received, arguing it “exacerbated” the political debate about health policy.

Two officials noted the administration remains concerned about the rise of the delta variant and breakthrough infections but added those same studies prove the “vaccines work.”

It’s a mess. Their messaging is a pure mess. And, in fairness, a lot more people got vaccinated, but, that seems to be a lot of people who are doing it to not lose their jobs.

    Only in America do we keep someone like Dr. WHO? in a position of authority when he has lost all credibility with the public. No one trusts this guy any longer. The guy is probably single-handedly responsible for creating a pandemic that has killed millions world wide.

    Yet this is what we have become. We have the lowest rated MSM in the world. IN THE WORLD. The least trusted PRESS in the world has been tagged by the world as the United States MSM.

    Our government’s actions against the President of the United States leaking information daily. A President who was impeached on the testimony of a witness who was never allowed to be cross examined or revealed goes against the Constitution.

    A flash impeachment over an FBI COUP attempt to frame Trump and the right by using lunatic righties and helping them set up the COUP is mind blowing. You don’t hear that in the press.

    The fact the NSA, CIA and FBI is using illegal activity to spy on Americans is mindblowing.

    Why don’t we trust the government any longer. The government needs to look at themselves and then they need to look at BUSH/CHENEY and LIZ CHENEY to understand the root causes of this massive fracture that occurred as the 4th turning is upon us.

    In the next Decade the United States will not survive. The GOP will win a massive landslide in 2022 barring another massive lock down and voter fraud perpetuated by the left again. Either way if the left wins in 2022, the right will lose their minds. If the right wins in 2022 the left will revolt and lose their minds claiming the election was stolen. Both sides will claim the election was stolen. The streets will finally turn red.

    What was the first thing MAO did in China. He took away guns and divided the nation into two groups the Oppressed and the Oppressors. What was the first thing that Lenin did in Russia. He took away guns and turned the Oppressed against the Oppressors.

    Right now their is a cultural revolution that pits the oppressed against the Oppressors, while the left tries desperately to take away guns.

    Why does the people not trust the government any longer? Gee I wonder.

    “Their messaging is a pure mess…..”

    As opposed to Trump’s messaging (that you parroted) that covid was no worse than the flu and was “fake news”? And “everything is under control”?
    Florida and Texas 2 states that Teach championed as doing the best in fight against covid are now official dumpster fires

    We can always count on John to show his stupidity. As you’ve been told before he never said it was “fake news”. The media said nothing about as being done about Covid, that’s what he was alluding to when he said fake news. But go ahead John , show us the proof that’s what he said if you have some special inside information. Good luck.

    Contrary to the leftist talking points.

    Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives of the 116th United States Congress on December 18, 2019. The Senate acquitted Trump of these charges on February 5, 2020.

    What was happening in Dec. of 2019? Beijing: The first case of the novel coronavirus was detected in Wuhan city in “late December 2019”,

    The first confirmed case of COVID-19 in the U.S. was reported on Jan. 20, 2020, in a resident of Washington state who had recently traveled to China.

    but

    The SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, may have arrived in the U.S. by December 2019, even before the first cases were reported.

    Yet the democrats were impeaching Trump and telling us the virus was nothing to worry about.

    NEWSFLASH LEFTIES*************************

    Also referred to as the President’s Coronavirus Task Force, it was established on January 29, 2020 in the midst of Trump being impeached by the lying, leftists who said the virus was nothing to worry about.

    Pelosi says ‘no’ regrets after initial downplaying of coronavirus earlier this year
    Pelosi said in February there was no evidence of widespread infection in the US

    Yep in FEBURARY…NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT HERE AMERICA!!!!!!SAYS DEMOCRATS.

    IN JANUARY of 2020:

    So Fauci, in a qualified response said, don’t worry “right now;” “you need to take it seriously;” and although “this is not a major threat,” keep an ear open to the CDC and Homeland Security.

    BIDEN WAS CAMPAIGNING IN EARLY MARCH.

    Joe Biden campaign advisor Jake Sullivan on Sunday defended the Democratic nominee holding crowded campaign events in early March

    Trump shut down travel to China on JANUARY 29th, 2020. He shut down Travel to Europe in Feburary, 2020.

    Democrats call Trump racist for travel shutdowns.

    Biden did accuse Trump of “xenophobia” in an Iowa campaign speech the same day that the administration announced the travel restrictions

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) repeatedly criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to halt flights to and from China. In fact, she led her Democratic colleagues in calling the president a xenophobe and a racist for making such a decision.

    OPPPSSSS………

    “… Actually, tens of thousands of people were still allowed in from China. So it wasn’t as it’s described, as this great moment,” Pelosi said with a smile. “There were Americans come back, green card holders coming back, but there were tens of thousands.”

    “So, if you’re going to shut the door because you have an evaluation of an epidemic, then shut the door,” the speaker said.

    In fact, just last week, Pelosi came under fire for encouraging people to visit Chinatown in San Francisco as a way of “end[ing] the discrimination, the stigma that was going out against the Asian American community.”

    So what is it Pelosi? Shut the door or don’t shut the door?

    Oh wait then in FEB of 2020 Trump shut down travel from Africa when covid was starting to explode there.

    “The Trump administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law,” her statement reads. “The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy.”

    Fuk the liars. Trump worked overtime to try and protect America from covid-19. The democrats just used it to defeat the GOP in 2020. Thats all they cared about. Power not PEOPLE. NOthing has changed in the last 18 months.

    POWER over the PEOPLE.
