• Harris’ Anti-Vax Statements Could Endanger Vulnerable Americans

    Surge Summary: In Wednesday night’s vice-presidential debate between Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris, she sowed more seeds of public doubt about the safety of the vaccine currently being developed with the urging of the Trump administration. This could hurt people who need it but won’t receive it because of her negativism. The President, meanwhile, is praising treatments which he received when he was hospitalized for coronavirus, but the media is giving his administration no credit for these advances.

    If you did not watch [Wednesday] night’s vice-presidential debate, even if you are already committed, I still urge you to watch it today.  It will help you make the case to other family members, friends and other undecided voters you know …

    Endangering Public Health

    [Sen. Kamala] Harris was asked if she would take a vaccine developed during the Trump Administration.  She answered, “If Donald Trump tells us we should take it, I’m not taking it.”

    The vice president rightfully countered that she and Joe Biden were endangering public health by undermining what we all know can stop the virus, which is vaccines.  And they are coming in record time.

    Here’s something else to consider:  Because of a variety of health problems in the black community, the mortality rate among blacks who contract COVID-19 is three times greater than their percentage of the population.  Many stories have been written lately about the disparate impact of the virus on minority communities.

    When a vaccine becomes available, a strong case could be made that the elderly of all races and minorities in general should be a higher priority to receive the vaccine.  But a woman minorities look up to, as the first woman of color to run for vice president, has just told them not to take the vaccine.

    Harris just cost lives in the black community.  She ought to be ashamed of herself.

    The fact that the media are not calling her out for this shows just how committed they are to defeating any conservative president and empowering the far left in America.

    And just in case it wasn’t already clear that the left is exploiting the coronavirus for its own political purposes, Jane Fonda said this as she was urging people to vote for the Biden/Harris ticket:  “I just think COVID is God’s gift to the left.”

    By the way, on the same night that Harris offered a weak rejection of violence, a mob attacked the homes of people in a small Wisconsin town over an event they had nothing to do with.  I guarantee you there will be no statement today from Biden or Harris condemning these attacks.

    New Developments

    President Trump spoke on the White House lawn [Wednesday] and praised the medical treatment he received at Walter Reed Medical Center.  He highlighted Regeneron, one of the drugs he received to treat coronavirus, as well as another one being developed by Eli Lilly.

    The president said he wants to make these drugs widely available and free so that anyone in the hospital struggling with the virus can get the same treatments he received.  Regeneron and Eli Lilly are now asking the FDA for emergency use authorizations for their COVID therapeutics.

    These developments are happening virtually every day, and the administration is getting virtually no credit.  But thanks to the president aggressively cutting through the red tape, the death toll has been declining even though the disease is spreading.
