Biden Omits ‘China,’ ‘Operation Warp Speed’ from Coronavirus Address

Biden appeared to place blame on former President Trump nearly immediately, telling the American people, “A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked, denials for days, weeks, then months.” Biden notably failed to mention the travel ban on China Trump instituted weeks before officials formally declared a pandemic. That was not the only subject Biden failed to mention.

Throughout the address, Biden spoke about the impact the virus has had on America and the American economy, as well as vaccine development, even announcing that all adults will be eligible to receive a vaccine by no later than May 1. Noticeably absent from his remarks on vaccines, however, was the phrase “Operation Warp Speed,” the massive undertaking of the Trump administration with the goal of speeding up vaccine development and distribution.

“Every adult will be eligible to get their shot. And to do this, we’re going to go from a million shots a day that I promised in December before I was sworn in, to maintaining, beating our current pace of two million shots a day, outpacing the rest of the world,” Biden said, failing to mention the previous administration’s key role.

Biden also failed to mention the words “Chinese,” “China,” or “Wuhan” — the virus’s place of origin, ignoring the role China played in the global spread of the illness. He did, however, mention crimes committed against Asian Americans, whom he said had been “attacked, harassed, blamed, and scapegoated.”

“At this very moment, so many of them, our fellow Americans, they’re on the front lines of this pandemic trying to save lives, and still, still, they are forced to live in fear for their lives, just walking down streets in America. It’s wrong, it’s un-American, and it must stop,” he said.

While Biden attempted to offer a glimmer of hope in his address, he struck a demonstratively cautionary tone, warning Americans they need to continue to practice social distancing, wear masks, and put “trust and faith” in the government. Ultimately, if Americans fail to stick to the rules, Biden warned officials may have to “reinstate restrictions to get back on track.”

“But to get there we can’t let our guard down. This fight is far from over,” he said, expressing hope Americans will be able to gather with a small group of people by Independence Day but warning conditions could take a turn for the worse, prompting further government action.

“Listen to Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, one of the most distinguished and trusted voices in the world. He’s assured us the vaccines are safe. … I know they’re safe. Vice President [Kamala] Harris and I know they’re safe,” he continued.

Biden also did not mention “lockdowns” during his speech, opting to use the phrases “collective suffering” and “collective sacrifice.” Additionally, the president did not mention the number of migrants traveling through Mexico to the southern border, nor the risk they pose in bringing additional cases of the virus into the U.S.

Vaccine Passports in Michigan: Schools, Sports Orgs Require Proof for Testing Opt-Out

Breitbart

Published

on

WOOD TV reported earlier this week:

The state of Michigan is relaxing coronavirus restrictions for outdoor activities as more become vaccinated, lifting face mask requirements for outdoor gatherings of less than 100 people.

The newest order will go into effect May 6 and will continue through May 31, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced Tuesday. …

For organized sports, routine COVID-19 [coronavirus] testing will not be required for those fully vaccinated and aren’t experiencing symptoms. Masks will still be required for contact sports. But they won’t be required for non-contact sports during outdoor practices or competitions. The state used an example of softball and baseball players still needing to wear masks when in the dugout but not when playing in the field.

Breitbart News asked MDHHS how vaccination claims would be verified — through the honor system, or by requiring a player or parent to divulge personal medical information in order to take the field.

“Schools and athletic organizations will be responsible for confirming this information,” Lynn Sutfin, department spokeswoman, said.

A parent who has an athlete in Forest Hills Public Schools said she received the following message:

Due to the newest MDHHS order, fully vaccinated student athletes do not need to participate in the mandatory COVID testing. In order for us to exempt an athlete from testing, we are asking athletes that are fully vaccinated and 14 days from last vaccine to bring a photocopy of the documentation showing they are fully vaccinated to testing on Friday, May 7. We will keep the photocopy of the documentation for our records, and the athlete will no longer be required to test.

The parent said it made her “extremely upset at the discrimination and the hypocrisy since having the vaccine doesn’t mean you can’t get (the virus).”

“Individuals have a right to privacy to their medical information — information that they might not want others to know,” state Rep. Sue Allor (R), a sponsor of one of the bills to ban vaccine passports in the state, said.

“The possibility of a person’s medical information being compromised is a very real threat. We have seen countless instances of sensitive information being exposed both before and during COVID-19. Bad actors will go to great lengths to steal people’s information,” she added.

“We don’t know who is developing the technology or the safeguards in place to protect such information. That’s very concerning,” Allor said.
