Biden Goes Full Authoritarian, Says the Unvaccinated Are Killing People Through Facebook

Western Journal

A day after White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted that Silicon Valley is censoring American citizens at the request of the federal government, President Joe Biden falsely accused unvaccinated Americans of killing others through Facebook.

“They’re killing people. I mean they really — Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people,” Biden said to reporters Friday at the White House after he was asked about so-called “misinformation” being spread on Facebook and other platforms.

Biden’s statement of course made zero sense. Biden often makes no sense.

If what the president was saying is true, then he’s essentially saying vaccines don’t work. If vaccines don’t work, then why would people who have already decided not to take them change their minds?

If the pandemic is now only among the unvaccinated, as Biden said, then what is the issue with that? Americans have a right to make their own health choices, and millions of them have. At this point in time, those who have yet to be vaccinated against COVID have made a decision, and they’ve done so knowing the stakes.

Everyone knows there is a vaccine. If that vaccine works, those who have been vaccinated have nothing to worry about.

They won’t die from COVID.

On the other hand, if people choose not to become vaccinated, they won’t be forced into it. COVID deaths are down everywhere relative to where they were a year ago, and it’s because either natural immunity has been achieved, or because those who chose to get their shots did so.

Talk about contributing to vaccine hesitancy.

Biden’s unfounded, authoritarian and ignorant statement was made a day after his press secretary made a jarring admission. Psaki told reporters at her Thursday media briefing that Big Tech, which banned former President Donald Trump earlier this year, is censoring the free speech of Americans at the direction of powerful Democrats.

“We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon General’s office,” Psaki said, according to a transcript of her remarks provided by the White House. “We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.”

“Facebook should provide, publicly and transparently, data on the reach of COVID-19 — COVID vaccine misinformation. Not just engagement, but the reach of the misinformation and the audience that it’s reaching,” she added. “That will help us ensure we’re getting accurate information to people. This should be provided not just to researchers, but to the public so that the public knows and understands what is accurate and inaccurate,” Psaki also said.

The inept face of the Biden administration might as well have stated that a handful of California tech geeks and Democrats can finally work together to suppress the voices of all those who have questions about vaccine efficacy, safety and necessity.

We don’t know to what degree the White House has been working with people such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. But we know there has been some alarming collaboration there. If that’s not Orwellian enough, Biden on Friday appealed to the worst emotions in people, accusing those who post opinions about the vaccine online of being guilty of “killing” others.

The White House and Silicon Valley are working to demonize and censor those with whom they disagree. Right now that partnership of censorship is about COVID and the 2020 election. These people decided a year ago what counts for misinformation.

How long will it be before these Marxists are silencing people with regard to other issues?

At this rate, it might not be long before every opinion which hasn’t been sanctioned by the state is deemed worthy of a person’s de-platforming.

DOJ Now Has Official Request to Begin Criminal Investigation of Dr. Fauci

Documents obtained by the Washington Examiner revealed that Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to criminally investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden. Paul has sent the criminal referral to Garland because he argues that Fauci lied to Congress when he said at a Senate testimony that the National Institutes of Health never funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Examiner reported Saturday. “I write to urge the United States Department of Justice to open an investigation into testimony made to the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on May 11, 2021,” Paul’s letter to Garland, obtained by the Examiner, stated. Paul had announced his intention to seek the criminal investigation on Tuesday. On May 11, Paul and Fauci had a rough exchange where Paul questioned Fauci about whether he supported NIH funding of research at the advanced biology institute in Wuhan, China, which included, according to Paul, “gain of function” research. Gain-of-function research is a type of medical research whereby scientists modify a disease-causing organism in a way that alters how the disease is developed, in a way that increases the transmissibility of the illness, and/or in a way that widens or shrinks the range of hosts for the disease. To best understand what this kind of research is, consider a hypothetical virus A as one that affects only humans and dogs. To modify the hypothetical virus A to infect pigs in addition to humans and dogs would be considered a “gain of function” experiment because it, in this case, would be considered widening the disease’s range of hosts. The trouble with such experiments is when the modified…

With an openly bellicose swagger reminiscent of former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev telling the West “we will bury you,” Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a warning to the world Sunday. As Russia celebrated Navy Day in St. Petersburg, Putin said the Russian navy can destroy anything it wants, anytime it wants, anywhere it wants. “We are capable of detecting any underwater, above-water, airborne enemy and, if required, carry out an unpreventable strike against it,” Putin said, according to Reuters. The Russian state-run Tass news agency said the parade of ships Putin was watching included 50 total vessels, including 18 combat ships.

Putin has said that the Defender was deliberately sent on a mission to provoke a response. “First of all it was a provocation, quite obviously,” he said in an interview last month, according to the Independent. “What were they trying to tell us?” he said. “What goals were they trying to achieve? “It was a complex provocation organized by the U.S. and the British because a warship entered our waters during the day and then … an American warplane took off from somewhere in Greece,” Putin added. Putin claimed that the British ship “came into our waters and they looked at how we…
