5 Covid Mistakes Biden's New Chief of Staff Must Admit
Just published another Op-Ed on FoxNews.com, the 3rd most visited news site in the world. I laid out just 5 of the Covid mistakes made by our Federal government that they should own, but likely won't.
Every day I am subjected to a new record in absurdity which is then soon followed by one far surpassing the previous.
Check out the latest: Biden’s previous Covid Czar was promoted to the position of Biden’s new Chief of Staff. Wait, what? One of the leaders of what is one of the demonstrably worst national public health responses to Covid in the world. A guy responsible for policies that caused hundreds of thousands of needless deaths due to the suppression of early treatment while forcing and promoting toxic, ineffective, and lethal vaccines at the expense of people’s livelihoods and education. And he gets a promotion. What will tomorrow bring? Will it be Alfred Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer, getting nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine? Aye aye aye.
Well, at least there are some somewhat good news of late to offset this idiocy. The Biden administration has announced it will finally end the Covid-19 public health emergency—in May! The order been renewed every 90 days since January 2020, even as the disease waned and life in most places returned to normal. But the Federal government needs more time to unwind the mess it created. And so for another four months, it will be business as usual for pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, pharmacies, and everyone else gaming the health system to keep the emergency funds rolling in.
So, I suppose there are good news and bad news. I wonder if this means they will start letting foreign visitors in without a “Covid vaccine” so some of my favorite international Covid truth warriors (like Jessica Rose!) can come visit to help us counter the incessant Disinformation tactics by Big Pharma (and others).
Anyway, of the innumerable failed and damaging policies enacted by our captured Federal government, I focused on these 5 in the Op-Ed (feel free to make fun of me for the ones I did not include, but my defense will be that there are tight word limits on Op-Ed’s).
Admit promises about experimental mRNA vaccines fell short (understatement of the year).
Acknowledge that re-purposed generic drugs should play a role in the ongoing fight against COVID (yeah right, not in the United States of Pharma but hey, don’t blame me for trying).
Scrap plans for annual COVID-19 vaccinations (if they do go through with this, that will set the newest record for absurdity, which, like I said above, will not hold top spot for very long).
Immediately remove all pandemic mandates (there are so many hills to die on in fighting against the Covid fraud and corruption, but, as an American who is deeply committed to medical ethics, this is the first one).
Concede that vaccine injuries are real, and call off the merchants of doubt. The propaganda narrative that they trial-ballooned in the past week, you know, the one where they tried to portray the vaccine injured as “faking it” (which literally focused on one of my patients), is just the latest salvo that sent me over the edge.
The House Republican majority has oversight responsibilities and subpoena authority. The Committee on Energy and Commerce has scheduled its first hearing for early February. If the executive branch is unwilling to admit past mistakes, Congress should force its hand.
You can read the whole piece on foxnews.com, but I have also included it below:
President Joe Biden’s elevation of Jeff Zients, best known as his Coronavirus Response Coordinator, to White House chief of staff is the latest sign of the administration standing by its stewardship of the pandemic. Rather than a comeuppance, it’s more of the same defiance and obstinance that have become hallmarks of their "medical experts."
The ringleader of Biden’s pandemic response deserves an expulsion from government, not a promotion. If Zients has any hope of rebuilding trust with Americans, he needs to acknowledge past mistakes. Here are five places to start.
First, admit promises about experimental mRNA vaccines fell short.
As Americans were learning how to pronounce "omicron" in December 2021, Zients delivered a dire warning from the White House briefing room: "For the unvaccinated, you're looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm."
Set aside how such an incendiary claim breaks Biden’s inaugural pledge to "stop the shouting and lower the temperature." The math doesn’t add up. Since Zients’ declaration, the percentage of COVID fatalities among the vaccinated in the U.S has steadily climbed – from 23 percent in September 2021 to 42 percent in January and February 2022 to a clear majority (58 percent) by August 2022, according to analysis from the Kaiser Family Foundation. In a more recent report from the health department of New South Wales, Australia which covered the last two weeks of December 2022, of the 1,415 hospitalized patients with known vaccination status, none were unvaccinated. The numbers have changed, but the condescension from the White House has never wavered.
Second, acknowledge that re-purposed generic drugs should play a role in the ongoing fight against COVID.
Since the pandemic’s earliest days, the Front-Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), the non-profit medical organization that I lead, has been gathering and presenting clinical evidence for alternative treatments. Summary analyses called "meta-analyses" which combine data from many individual studies have long been considered the strongest form of medical evidence over that of single or even a handful of trials. Numerous meta-analyses along with firsthand reports from clinicians around the world have found that safe, affordable medicines like ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and fluvoxamine (among others) reduce COVID hospitalizations and deaths.
Government agencies have ignored these facts and even mocked them. Doctors who discuss their professional experience helping COVID patients with effective treatments are accused of peddling "misinformation" and threatened by the likes of the American Board of Internal Medicine – as I have been.

Third, scrap plans for annual COVID-19 vaccinations.
Last week, the FDA’s Vaccine and Related Biological Products committee voted unanimously to retire Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech’s original COVID-19 vaccines and replace them with an annual booster of the bivalent shots, billed to specifically protect against the Omicron variant. Setting aside questions about efficacy, shocking new video footage showed a Pfizer executive discussing his company’s plans to mutate future strains of COVID that would require a new vaccine.
Pfizer can deny the claims in the video all they want, but the numbers don’t lie. Analysts expect the company’s 2023 revenue to drop 26 percent as demand for the vaccine wanes. That’s just one year after projecting $100 billion of revenue fueled by the American taxpayer. Clearly, a pandemic in perpetuity boosts its bottom line.
Fourth, immediately remove all pandemic mandates.
This weekend, Novak Djokovic, the world’s top ranked tennis player, won his 10th Australian Open, tying Rafael Nadal for the all-time lead of 22 Grand Slam championships. Yet questions remain about his ability to participate in upcoming American tournaments due to vaccine requirements for foreigners that will remain in place until at least April 10. An organizer of one of the upcoming tournaments dubbed the whole situation a "disgrace" – he’s right.
This problem extends beyond sports. Health care workers who were fired for exercising medical freedom should be re-hired, and military service members who lost recruitment bonuses and salary should be made whole.
Finally, concede that vaccine injuries are real, and call off the merchants of doubt.
It’s bad enough the administration has foregone regulatory safeguards to push an experimental vaccine on hundreds of millions of Americans. Now its allies are mocking those suffering from debilitating side effects with a coordinated smear campaign, despite the fact that the CDC’s own V-safe database found that eight percent of patients were injured badly enough to require medical care. Despite this, some of these despicable attacks even come with a derisive "#thankspfizer."
I care for many people battling vaccine injuries, like Angelia Desselle. No one should be forced to endure the suffering she and so many others have gone through, only to become targets of media derision.
It is unlikely that Jeff Zients will pay attention to these offerings. But there’s also a new sheriff in town. The House Republican majority has oversight responsibilities and subpoena authority. The Committee on Energy and Commerce has scheduled its first hearing for early February. If the executive branch is unwilling to admit past mistakes, Congress should force its hand.
