    Surge Summary: The CDC has changed its mind re COVID once again: this time concerning the need for masking while outside. “The Science” continues to provide encouraging news about the state of the pandemic battle. Common sense is trying to impose itself on the coronavirus hysteria – but the Biden Administration persists with confusing, mixed signals. Making things worse, Biden and Co. continue to misrepresent much of the wise (and successful) policy pursued against the pandemic by the previous White House.

    Common Sense Prevails

    It’s been a long time coming, but common sense finally prevailed [Tuesday].  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that if you’re vaccinated you no longer need to wear a mask outside.  DUH!

    Even if you aren’t vaccinated wearing a mask outside is silly.  We’ve known for quite some time now that there is virtually no risk of viral transmission outside.  Shutting everything down and forcing everyone inside is the most effective way to spread the virus.

    Evidently, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra didn’t get the CDC’s memo.  Becerra went on CBS this morning and thoroughly confused anchor Gayle King by insisting that vaccinated people still need to wear masks outside.

    By the way, Joe Biden will be addressing the country [Wednesday] night before a joint session of Congress.  Even though members of Congress were among the first to have access to the COVID vaccines, attendance at the address is being severely limited.

    Why?  I suspect it is being done for optics and to perpetuate the environment of fear, which may also explain why Biden is wearing masks on Zoom calls.

    Not So Smart

    The president went out on the White House lawn [Tuesday] and continued to politicize the virus.  Biden said when he took office, only one percent of our seniors had been vaccinated.

    Well, the first COVID vaccine wasn’t developed and approved for use by the FDA until December 11th, which was accomplished in record time thanks to Donald Trump.  If we had been operating under normal procedures, we’d be waiting several more years.

    And even when talking about a virus, Biden couldn’t resist injecting race into the discussion.  He felt it was really important to tell us that:

    “The proportion of seniors who have been vaccinated is essentially equal between white and seniors of color.  I said from the beginning that we we’re going to fight this virus with equity. . .  If I’m not mistaken, there are more Latino and African American seniors who have been vaccinated as a percentage than white seniors.”

    Biden has done almost nothing different from the rollout plan that President Trump and Vice President Pence left behind.  Trump said that the country would be on its way to reopening about this time, and he was roundly condemned for it.  But that’s exactly what’s happening.

    But wait. . . There’s more!

    During the early days of the pandemic, the Trump Administration wisely held regular conference calls with the nation’s governors.  Under our federalist system, governors have tremendous authority.

    Vice President Mike Pence led 39 of the 40 White House conference calls with the nation’s governors, and President Trump attended eight of them.  We learned [Monday] that President Biden hasn’t attended any of these calls.  Vice President Harris sat in on one for five minutes, and took no questions.

    Guess who is leading the calls now?  The chairman of the National Governors Association . . . New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

    So the guy who is facing impeachment charges for a series of scandals, the guy who ordered sick COVID patients into nursing homes where they infected more seniors, the guy who gave his family members special treatment – THAT GUY is the Biden Administration’s new spokesman to the nation’s governors. The views here are those of the author and not necessarily Daily Surge
