Remember Biden’s ‘summer of freedom’ and victory over COVID? No wonder his credibility’s shot:
Last July 4, President Joe Biden proclaimed victory over COVID: “Thanks to our heroic vaccine effort, we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus. We can live our lives. We are closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus.” A few weeks later, Biden promised that people who got vaccinated would not get COVID.
Since last July 4, COVID has killed more than 400,000 Americans. More than 55 million have been diagnosed with the virus, and there have probably been tens of millions of unconfirmed or unreported cases.
Biden has been more successful decimating freedom than ending the pandemic. The wreckage of his COVID promises explains much of the collapse of Biden’s credibility and approval ratings.
Government coverups paved the way to Biden’s pratfalls. In May 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ceased keeping track of almost all “breakthrough” COVID infections among vaccinated individuals unless they resulted in hospitalization or death. Last July, a COVID outbreak affecting more than 500 vaccinated individuals in Provincetown, Mass., hit the headlines.
On Aug. 5, CDC chief Rochelle Walensky formally confessed: “What [COVID vaccines] can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.” Prior to that admission, the Biden administration even refused to disclose the number of “breakthrough” infections that had occurred among White House staff. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden’s COVID-19 vax push for kids suffers enthusiasm gap, parents’ interest wanes for preteens:
Adults snapped up COVID-19 shots in the first wave of vaccinations in early 2021, coveting them so much that Florida police caught two women who dressed as grandmothers to hop the line.
The federal push to vaccinate children has been a much tougher slog, with parental anecdotes and federal data showing interest drops off below age 12, even as President Biden cheers the recent authorization of shots for 18 million children ages 6 months to 4 years.
Ginny Merrifield, the executive director of the Parent Association of North County San Diego, a nonprofit that advocates for parents of children in public schools, said just half of the parents in her California circle were interested in vaccinating children 12 and older when those shots became available.
Another 20% or so came forward to make life easier as their teens participated in sports or other activities where immunization was demanded or expected.
“When you start getting younger than 12, I think those numbers start shifting in the other direction,” Ms. Merrifield said in an interview. “I think there is a dramatic decrease as you go down with age.” --->READ MORE HERE
