President Biden, Beto, and Liberal Media Comments on Texas Opening Up Come Back to Bite Them

COVID Numbers Lowest Since Pandemic Began

Texas Governor Greg Abbott

When Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted the joyous news, “I just announced Texas is OPEN 100%. EVERYTHING. I also ended the statewide mask mandate” Beto O’Rourke called it “A death warrant for Texans.” Liberals and mainstream media were very much in O’Rourke’s camp; President Biden himself called it “Neanderthal thinking.”

The Washington Post’s editorial board said the Governor was “endangering the health of Texas and beyond” and “Mr. Abbott’s decision was “premature and reckless.” Joke’s on them as Texans are striving and thriving and enjoying freedom.

On Sunday Texas reported zero new COVID-19 deaths in the state and the lowest rates of new cases and hospitalizations in months. Governor Abbott tweeted Sunday evening, “Today Texas reported:

*0 Covid related deaths – the only time that’s happened since data was tracked in March 2020.
*the fewest Covid cases in over 13 months
*the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever
*the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 months.
Thanks, Texans!”

The Twitterverse is not letting O’Rourke forget his blistering comments. “Just amazing work, beto” tweeted Becket Adams. The Daily Wire pointed out a “Swing and a miss” for Beto. “Will Beto ever get a win?” wrote Emily Zanotti. “Good call bruh” Tweeted Fox News’ Guy Benson.

In response to the news, a spokesperson for O’Rourke told Fox News in a statement Tuesday “more than 5,600 people have died since Abbott removed public health protections in Texas.” A vague statement, indeed.

“Abbott, meanwhile, is doubling down. The governor issued an executive order on Tuesday making it illegal for schools and governmental entities in the state to implement mask mandates” reports Fox News.

“Texans, not government, should decide their best health practices, which is why masks will not be mandated by public school districts or government entities” Abbott said Tuesday. “We can continue to mitigate COVID-19 while defending Texans’ liberty to choose whether or not they mask up” Abbott added.

    Wish honest representatives, in a very HOT sunshine state of New Mexico, would wake up! If anything it’s worse, bosses are threatening, their employees. People are asleep in their slowed response to “We The People”, still in too many states. #FollowTheCovidMoney

The World sees it and is Laughing at the absurdities that comes out of the mouth’s of these idiots! Texas would be well advised to secede from the Union. Before these Libtards start WWIII…

    A death warrant for Texans? Premature and reckless? Seriously? Meanwhile, the Biden administration has open borders and people from all over are pouring over our southern border. Who will pay to house, feed, educate, and provide health care to them? (I know.) I’ve never been to Texas but admire their grit and common sense.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

Published

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic 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 accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“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 New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Covid-19

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
