Pinocchio telling an empty lie

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told a House committee last week that it was not misleading when she told the public during the COVID-19 outbreak that those who get vaccinated will not carry the virus, nor would they get sick.

The CDC sold the lie that those who received Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines reduced their chances of getting sick from the virus by 94 percent and said vaccinated individuals would not spread the virus. 

Walensky told the House Committee on Appropriations that vaccinated people can spread the virus due to “an evolution of science.”

She insisted that the data studied at the time “suggested that vaccinated people, even if they got sick, could not transmit the virus.”

Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., reminded her of comments she made during an interview on MSNBC in which she said flatly that “vaccinated people do not carry the virus, they do not get sick” was inaccurate.

She insisted that her comment was accurate at the time. 

Jay Bhattacharya, professor of health policy at Stanford University School of Medicine, told Children’s Health Defense that Walensky could not have known at the time whether her comments were true or false. 

“It was just an irresponsible use of a bully pulpit as a CDC director to say something that she did not know for certain to be true at the time,” he said. “Unfortunately, people used that information to discriminate against unvaccinated individuals and would certainly have been used as fuel for very destructive policies like vaccine mandates.”

States like Maine, however, still require healthcare workers to be fully vaccinated.

“While there may have been an ‘evolution of the science,’ there has not been an ‘evolution of the policy,’” The Maine Wire wrote. The report noted that the state has one of the “harshest vaccine mandates in the country,” which do not even include “philosophical or religious exemptions.”

TRENDPOST: The Trends Journal has reported extensively on how Washington failed in every way during the COVID-19 outbreak, exposing the threat to any country led by people whose only skill is to lie to get elected to suck off the public tit for as long as they can. And there is never any accountability. (See “SELLING BOOSTER SHOTS, CDC’S WALENSKY SAY ‘FU’ TO AGENCY ADVISERS” 28 Sep 2021, “VAXXED-OUT CDC HEAD COMES DOWN WITH COVID, JOINING LONG LIST DRUG-PUSHERS WHO GET AFFECTED” 25 Oct 2022 and “EL PRESIDENTE OF U.S.S.A. DECLARES THE COVID-19 WAR IS OVER” 20 Sep 2022.)

In May 2021, Walensky’s CDC declared that the fully vaccinated did not have to wear a mask in most settings because vaccines worked so well. By August, Walensky recommended that even those fully vaccinated should resume wearing masks indoors, even though the jabs worked exceptionally well.

The only problem is the jabs didn’t work well. 

At about the time Walensky made the comment, headlines in Israel said the Pfizer Covid vaccine is just 39 percent effective as Delta spread. 

In July 2021, there was a massive outbreak in Provincetown, Mass., where about 75 percent were fully vaccinated.

The CDC was forced to readjust its messaging after claims that the agency has lost its footing when it comes to directing the public’s response to the outbreak.

We have long reported on the data that has questioned the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines, mask mandates, social-distancing guidelines, Plexiglas dividers, washing down surfaces, and devastating lockdowns because we knew that these important decisions were not science or data-based, but rather based on politics.
