Congressional Democrats Change Direction and Blame President Trump for Moving Too Fast on COVID. What's up With That?

In early 2020, President Trump ordered the federal bureaucracy to pursue Operation Warp Speed as the nation struggled against a new, man-made virus and a vicious and mindless bureaucracy intent on grabbing power. This project required federal agencies to use all available means to expeditiously produce a vaccine for the Wuhan virus, commonly called COVID. Operation Warp Speed was announced on May 15, 2020. By December 14, the first patients not involved in clinical trials began receiving the COVID vaccine.


Whether or not this was a good thing is open to argument. What isn’t open to debate is that Democrats like Joe Biden praised President Trump for his actions. And public health weenies have credited the early introduction of the COVID vaccine with decreasing the lethality of that virus and eliminating its ability to spread. They began calling COVID a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” I’m not going to examine the factual basis of those claims because their truth or falsity is immaterial to the volume used to thunder those declarations at us.

So it was sort of strange to see Politico feature a story today titled Trump White House exerted pressure on FDA for Covid-19 emergency use authorizations, House report finds.

The Trump administration pressured the Food and Drug Administration, including former FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, to authorize unproven treatments for Covid-19 and the first Covid-19 vaccines on an accelerated timeline, according to a report released Wednesday by Democrats on the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.

This flies in the face of the standard Democrat narrative that holds President Trump was that he was too slow to react to the danger. While the hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin controversies have a starring role in this latest attempt at character assassination, there is a total failure to address the bullsh** treatments foisted upon unwitting patients by the medical community or the deliberate sabotaging of effective community-based monoclonal antibody programs (FDA Pulls Emergency Use Authorization for Drugs Used in Florida’s COVID Clinics Because No One Can Tell Them No) by the Biden White House.


So what, we may ask, is behind this?

First and foremost, this needs to be viewed as just another attempt to damage President Trump should he run for reelection in 2024. The January 6 Committee and the politically driven, if not outright illegal, investigation of “secret documents” by the Garland Justice Department are two other such efforts. I’m sure more will appear before the 2024 primary season starts in earnest.

Secondly, I suspect that more is known about the link between unexplained incidents of myocarditis and sudden death and the COVID vaccine and the longer-term effects of mRNA vaccines than has been made public. Finally, this report, such as it is, lays the blame on President Trump for pushing for a vaccine for political reasons rather than examining the effect of the coercive policies that forced people to use a vaccine now claimed by Congressional Democrats to have been rushed through the clinical trials process.

If I am right, the next months will see an avalanche of adverse incidents and side effects revealed, and the blame will be laid at the door of President Trump, and the Democrat megadonors in the pharmaceutical industry will be unscathed.
