President Joe Biden is arguing that Congress now needs more funding to fight the Covid pandemic. In the process, he is making the admission that he expects there will be a “second pandemic.”
“Mr. President, are you confident… I know you are looking for more money from Congress for this vaccine campaign and for Covid funding going into the fall. How much of the supply of vaccines for these small children is there and how many of the nation’s kids will you be able to get vaccinated before you need more money from Congress?” a reporter asked.
“We’ll get through least this year,” Biden responded. “We do need more money. But we don’t just need more money for vaccines for children, eventually, we need more money to plan for the second pandemic. There’s going to be another pandemic. We have to think ahead.”
However, the Biden administration has blamed the nation’s mounting crises on a “once in a century” or “once-in-a-generation” pandemic.
“We know families are concerned about inflation and the stock market,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on June 13. ” That is something that the President is — is really aware of. And so, look, we face global challenges… You know, Putin — Putin’s price hike, inflation, coming out of a once-in-a-generation global pandemic — all of those things play a factor.”
It appears that the Biden administration has advanced its timeline to have a second pandemic coming — next year.
In January, Dr. Anthony Fauci issued a warning that we’re only in “phase one” of a purported five phases of the Covid-19 pandemic.
While appeared virtually at the World Economic Forum, Biden’s top Covid adviser was asked if the SARS-CoV-2 virus would become endemic in 2022. Fauci said it’s too early to tell and the world appears to be in phase one of a five-phase pandemic, The New York Times reported.
“Dr. Fauci also said that the world is still in the first of what he considered to be the five phases of the pandemic. The first is the ‘truly pandemic’ phase, ‘where the whole world is really very negatively impacted,’ followed by deceleration, control, elimination and eradication,” The Times reported.
Fauci added that “it is an open question as to whether or not Omicron is going to be the live virus vaccination that everyone is hoping for, because you have such a great deal of variability with new variants emerging.”
“I would hope that that’s the case,” Fauci said, “but that would only be the case if we don’t get another variant that eludes the immune response.”
An article in Cell in 2020 co-authored by Dr. Anthony Fauci and David M. Morens revealed that pandemics are being used as a pretext to implement sweeping changes in civil-state relations across the globe.
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic reminds us that overcrowding in dwellings and places of human congregation (sports venues, bars, restaurants, beaches, airports), as well as human geographic movement, catalyzes disease spread,” the article says.
It advocates “radical changes that may take decades to achieve” for a less pandemic-stricken world.
“Living in greater harmony with nature will require changes in human behavior as well as other radical changes that may take decades to achieve: rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence, from cities to homes to workplaces, to water and sewer systems, to recreational and gatherings venues,” Fauci argues. “In such a transformation we will need to prioritize changes in those human behaviors that constitute risks for the emergence of infectious diseases.”
“Chief among them are reducing crowding at home, work, and in public places as well as minimizing environmental perturbations such as deforestation, intense urbanization, and intensive animal farming,” the article says. “Equally important are ending global poverty, improving sanitation and hygiene, and reducing unsafe exposure to animals, so that humans and potential human pathogens have limited opportunities for contact.”
The “second pandemic” is apparently at the top of global leaders’ minds, even though we purportedly just came out of a “once-in-a-century” pandemic. Even if people don’t take President Biden seriously, they should take his warnings very seriously.
