Democrats Are Conveniently ‘Done’ With Covid Just In Time For The 2022 Midterms:
Democrats are relaxing the Covid restrictions noose in hopes that after November, they can tighten it all over again.
Now that we’re in an election year where Democrats see their political fortunes slipping away in real time, they and their co-conspirators in the media have decided we should all take a quick break from “The Science.”
Democrats in New Jersey, New York, California, Oregon, Delaware, Connecticut, Illinois, and Rhode Island in recent days have said to hell with the CDC and are beginning to loosen up their beloved restrictions and mask mandates.
Less than a month ago, the U.S. was averaging more than 800,000 new Covid infections each day, the highest number seen during the entire pandemic, and quadruple the rate of infections that occurred during its peak under President Trump. But because case numbers are finally falling, New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney on Wednesday credited “Democrats’ plan to fight COVID,” which he said is “working.” Therefore, he said, “It’s time to give people their lives back.”
Democrats taketh away and Democrats giveth back.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, also of New York, said that the falling case counts aren’t happening “by accident” but because “under President Biden’s leadership, a public health infrastructure was put into place … to ensure that we can do everything possible to crush the virus, and that is what has been happening.”
Dr. Leana Wen, CNN’s omnipresent Covid nag, declared with glee this week that “the science has changed!” and that the rules for mask-wearing should “shift” from government mandate to “individual responsibility.” --->READ MORE HERE

Democrats’ about-face on COVID insanity won’t be enough to save them at midterms:
As we race toward this fall’s midterm elections, it is obvious that Democrats are in for a shellacking. Both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have approval ratings underwater by double-digit margins. Even more ominous, the RealClearPolitics polling average for voters who have been recently asked about the direction of the country reveals an astonishing 37.5% margin in favor of the idea America is on the “wrong track.”
Put simply, voters can’t stand Biden, hate Harris even more and emphatically think the country is headed in the wrong direction. Also auguring poorly for Democrats is the near-ironclad rule of American politics that a sitting president’s political party will lose seats in the first post-inauguration midterm election.
In a desperate attempt to stave off, or at least mitigate, a veritable electoral bloodbath, Democrats have conveniently decided that now is the time to finally stop obsessing over COVID. Yes, now — right as other polling evinces a majority of Americans want to cease or seriously lessen COVID-induced lifestyle restrictions.
Gov. Kathy Hochul just announced an end to the statewide masking requirement for businesses, though a mask mandate regrettably remains in place at schools and health care facilities. What’s more, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Oregon and California — all, like New York, Democratic-governed — announced this week their own plans to lift indoor mask mandates either later in February or in March.
These Democratic leaders have invariably pointed to receding caseloads, and perhaps “the science” more generally, to justify their obviously coordinated reversals on mask mandates. To be sure, mask mandates (for inefficacious masks) and vaccine mandates (for vaccines that do not stop transmission) are bad public policy. So, good for Democrats for finally catching up. --->READ MORE HERE
