“With the new Omicron variant sweeping the globe, how do we finally put an end to this pandemic?” Cramer asked. “How do we save lives and get business back to normal so everybody can put dinner on the table?”
“The federal government needs to require vaccines, including booster shots, for everyone in America by, say, January 1st,” he argued.
“It’s time to admit that our government has lost the ability, or the will, to make our people do the right thing,” he added. “Nobody wants to be the bad guy, so we’ve allowed a pastiche of uncoordinated health organizations to dictate an on-again-off-again series of measures that mostly just leave us baffled and confused.”
Cramer even slammed the Biden administration for not being jackbooted totalitarian thugs:
We haven’t centralized the issue to the point where the White House actually seems to take responsibility. We’d see. First was the CDC, then the FDA, the National Institutes of Health, mostly coordinating policy through talk shows. Then we left vaccination policy to individual companies. Now it’s toothless OSHA going back and forth on what’s allowed in factories, but nobody with any power saying the frontline workers need to be vaccinated. It’s just plain wrong, and most of us are sick of it.
Even as a vocal, anti-vax minority is always grabbing the mic, this charade must end. The government must require vaccinations. Not of this group or that group, not company by company, in a cruise ship by cruise ship, or airline by airline or governor by governor. The buck stops at the White House.
“It’s time to admit that we have to go to war against COVID,” he added. “Require vaccination universally. Have the military run it.”
Jim Cramer may be good at investment numbers, but he’s not particularly good at health statistics. According to the CDC, there are 195 million Americans who are reported to be “fully vaccinated.”
This is 59% of the U.S. population. Then there are between 146.6 million and 190 million Americans who have “natural immunity,” according to CDC reporting. These numbers overlap, as an estimated 60% of the vaccinated have prior immunity baked into their immune response. Thus, we can add between 29.6 million and 73 million Americans to those possessing vaccinated or natural immunity.
This gives us 224.6 million Americans or 68% of the population, at a minimum, with one form of immunity or another. This number may be as high as 268 million people or 81% of the population.
“Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN in February that about 70% to 85% of the U.S. population should be “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 before the country can begin to return to a sense of normalcy. However, as we now know, the vaccinated immunity wears off within months and people are already being told to get “booster shots.”
The bottom line is that herd immunity is understood to be attained when 70 percent to 80 percent of the population possesses immunity to a virus. This has been modeled consistently throughout previous pandemics. The issue may be that the “vaccines” do not actually provide immunity and are merely prophylactic therapeutics that prevent certain “at risk” patients from becoming worst outcome cases.
There is no medical or legal justifications for forced universal vaccination. A recent district court ruling that has temporarily blocked the federal vaccine mandate for Medicare and Medicaid authorized providers in ten states explained precisely why. It notes that the Biden administration’s contradictions on matters such as transmission and natural immunity are “tell-tale signs of unlawful agency actions.”
Jim Cramer has come out of the woodwork and has given a full-throated endorsement of fascism on network television. In a normal media environment, Cramer would find himself off the air and in more suitable work environments, such as in Communist China.
