Ya think? Public health officials have absolutely beclowned themselves with the singular fixation on vaccines at the expense of treatment or acknowledgment of natural immunity. Never forget that.

A clip of CDC Director Rochelle Walensky was making the rounds on Friday and it’s quite telling.

In it, she admits that the “experts” might have been a bit too optimistic on the efficacy of the vaccines and off-handedly said that she remembers where she was when she saw “the CNN feed” that said that the vaccine was 95% effective. She then tries to dismiss the singular focus on vaccines by saying, “nobody said ‘waning’ when the vaccine is going to work” subtly admitting that the “experts” viewed the vaccine as a traditional one that is effective at preventing illness and transmission.

To the “experts” there was only one way out of the pandemic and that was through vaccination. They introduced mandates, had people fired from their jobs for refusing the vaccine. Many of these people had been essential workers and hailed as “heroes” because they had to keep working through the pandemic when there was no vaccine available. Some of them got COVID and recovered, but that wasn’t acknowledged.

Just a couple of months ago, the President of the United States said that we were in a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” and that the unvaxxed will suffer through “a winter of severe illness and death” if they don’t get the shots.

Federal workers were forced to be jabbed or lose their jobs.

The Shambling Husk of Mediocrity then tried to force businesses with 100 or more employees to have their staff vaccinated through an OSHA rule, but that failed. Still, as the case was making its way through the courts, he encouraged businesses to impose the mandate anyway.

Some areas in the country introduced vaccine passports in order to participate in society.

Things like this happened:

In California, children are being forced to be vaccinated for an illness that isn’t a serious threat to them with a shot that can cause side effects that can affect their heart in order to attend school.

People started seeing the unvaxxed as dirty and sub-human. Families were divided.

Depression, anxiety, self-harm, drug and alcohol dependency, and suicide all increased with lockdowns and the focus on the pandemic to the exclusion of all other health concerns.

It’s been utter madness for two years!

When the “experts” learned that the vaccine efficacy decreases over time, we were told that we needed boosters. And now that the boosters don’t work as well on the current variant, we might need to start all over again.

It has been a sh!tstorm of bad policy decisions based on “optimism” and a CNN report that came from… the vaccine manufacturers themselves. The same ones that wanted to hide their clinical trial data until 2097.

Dr. Jay Battacharya, one of the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration had some thoughts on that clip of Walensky.

But that’s not all that Walensky said. It actually got worse.

She said that science isn’t “black and white” even though she, Fauci, and so many of the other “experts’ were pushing it that way from the very beginning of this pandemic and discrediting anyone who questioned their presumptions.

Allies in the media helped with this by discrediting anyone who discussed therapeutics — especially repurposed ones like Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and Fluvoxamine.

If, say, a famous podcaster took Ivermectin and it worked for him, well, he had taken “horse dewormer” according to the media and not a medication for humans that has been called a “miracle drug” and won the Nobel Prize in 2015.

Discussions about natural immunity? They didn’t bother to have those. Now we know that just like with other illnesses, it’s more robust than vaccination.

As a matter of fact, just a couple of weeks ago, a brief report in Reuters noted that Iceland was getting rid of all COVID restrictions. The reason that Iceland’s Ministry of Health gave for this is fascinating.

“Widespread societal resistance to COVID-19 is the main route out of the epidemic,” the ministry said in a statement, citing infectious disease authorities.

“To achieve this, as many people as possible need to be infected with the virus as the vaccines are not enough, even though they provide good protection against serious illness,” it added.

Some people have been saying this from the very beginning, notably Dr. Battacharya and his fellow signators of the Great Barrington Declaration that said that we should use a strategy of “focused protection” of the most vulnerable and reject the use of lockdowns.

Instead, what we did was create what Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida calls a “biomedical security state” and vilified anyone who questioned these tactics in handling the spread of an airborne respiratory virus.

And the singular focus on vaccines meant that discussion of treatment was stymied. How many people died because of that? How many lives could have been saved if we had properly examined therapeutics early on?

I don’t know about you, but I’m having a very hard time watching Dr. Walensky and not getting very, very angry with her little “Oopsie! We trusted the vaccine too much. Oh, well!” video.

Now that the world is fixated on Ukraine, it gives these criminals cover to quietly half-admit they were wrong after making life hell for people. It’s clear that they don’t give a damn that their anti-science fiats made life difficult for you, but they want your forgiveness.

Radio host Jesse Kelly has been all over this lately. How do you have peace with these people that haven’t apologized for deliberately making life a living hell for people that disagreed with them and followed the actual science instead of the way that the Chinese Communist Party handles pandemics?

Now they’re calling for “unity” — Biden said as much at the State of the Union. The problem is, they have no remorse for what they did.

There needs to be a reckoning. We can’t just let what happened slide. These people have destroyed lives.

And who knows what they’ve done to an entire generation of children.

All of these “experts” have lost their credibility with wide swathes of the population and with the way that they behaved — and they deserved to.

A few very vocal apologies from some prominent “experts” and holding these people accountable for damages incurred by their policies would go a long way in healing the divide. But you know that will never happen. After all, humility is a rare thing in politics and these “public health experts” are just politicians with labcoats.

It’s no secret that people are cowering with fear these days. But those of us with faith know that living your life in fear is crap. Let’s get that message out there.

We’re living in a time where fear is running rampant and unchecked.

It seems like most public policy is based on fear these days, especially when it comes to the Wuhan Virus.

2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

It seems that a LOT of people have completely forgotten that message.

Let’s give them a reminder…
