The 2022 midterm elections are over, and the Biden regime’s power has been reduced a tiny amount by Democrats losing the House. So, it’s back to business as usual in the Swamp.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released new COVID guidance, not coincidentally. HHS is recommending that cities, states, and businesses put mask mandates back in place or reduce the incidence of something called “Long COVID.” (More on that in a sec.)
Isn’t it fascinating that the Democrat Party always has some big piece of news like this to share with us after an election is over, though?
Joe Biden’s student loan bailout also just coincidentally fell apart the second that the midterms were over. Congratulations to every sucker who voted for a Democrat because of that policy, by the way! Gas prices are on the rise again as well. Oh, and for some reason, the entire country is facing a shortage of antibiotics now that those pesky elections have come and gone.
A new report issued by HHS states:
“The lifting of mask mandates and indifferent attitude toward masking and social distancing typical in many public and private places further isolates people with Long COVID.”
The report goes on to suggest that mandated masks and social distancing should be a priority of governments once again. Of course, this comes months after Joe Biden declared the pandemic to be “over.”
There’s also the issue of whether Long COVID is even a real thing. Some claim that it is. Others who have looked at the evidence think that Long COVID is a bunch of hooey. Alex Berenson, for example, devotes a chapter to Long COVID in his book “Pandemia: How Coronavirus Hysteria Took Over Our Government, Rights, and Lives.”
Berenson catalogs the symptoms of the so-called Long COVID. And keep in mind when you read this list of symptoms, this is supposedly the long-lasting version of an upper respiratory virus that makes you cough and maybe run a fever for a couple of days. Here are the symptoms:
Hair loss, sweaty palms, diarrhea, purple toes, sensitivity to light and sounds, brain fog, fatigue, short-term memory loss, bulging veins, and gynecological problems (most people with Long COVID seem to be women).
Berenson makes a solid argument that Long COVID is just another made-up disease that the pharmaceutical companies are more than willing to play along with, just so they can sell more pills to people. Previous examples include fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, and chronic fatigue. The list of symptoms for Long COVID doesn’t actually sound like COVID at all, do they? Purple toes? Really?
Since they want to start forcing everyone to mask up again because of Long COVID, it’s probably also worth noting that masks don’t work, and they never worked. The idea that masks might work dates back more than three years to the earliest days of the pandemic when they were telling everyone to bleach all the surfaces and doorknobs in their homes while washing their hands every 30 seconds just to be on the safe side. They told us that droplets of spittle from enthusiastically talking would spread the nasty Chinese virus all over the place. Remember that? But like all of the other information from HHS and the CDC and the FDA and the politicians and all the rest of the “health experts,” that was wrong. (Or just a flat-out lie.)
Wearing a mask doesn’t prevent the spread of COVID any more than the COVID shots. The big question is whether people will comply once again if they try to make masking mandatory. Or have people finally had enough of this COVID tyranny from our supposed betters in government?
