But ‘the dam breaks, the truth comes out’

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who has provided platforms for medical scientists who thwart the government’s COVID-19 narrative, said Wednesday as Democratic Party officials in many states lift restrictions that “the dam is breeze, the truth comes out”.
But it’s “too little, too late,” he told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, referring to the official death toll of some 900,000 in the United States and 5.5 million worldwide.
“COVID has exposed so much corruption in our federal health agencies, in medical journals, in our medical establishment and, of course, in our national organizations as well,” the Wisconsin lawmaker said.
Johnson said the ‘COVID cartel can’t afford to be wrong’ after stifling effective early treatments that were shown to keep people out of hospital and vaccines were found to be less effective and safe as promised.
“They don’t want to admit that fact. They cling to their failed mismanagement of this pandemic, and they won’t admit they’re wrong,” the senator said.
And with the media and big tech giants “accomplicating the cover-up and censorship,” it’s “going to be very difficult to prove how wrong these people are.”
Last month, Johnson hosted a five-hour roundtable in Washington, D.C., titled “COVID-19: A Second Opinion,” featuring critics of vaccines and the federal government’s response to the pandemic, including Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough, and people who testify to having sustained vaccine-related injuries.
The senator has also chaired Senate hearings featuring doctors who have been blocked from using proven and effective early treatments to save lives.
Earlier this week, Democrat-led New Jersey, Connecticut and Delaware announced that school mask mandates would be lifted. California, which has had one of the strictest mandates in the country, announced that its indoor mask mandate will be lifted for those vaccinated next week. The New York statewide mask mandate ended on Wednesday. However, some counties and cities like New York and Los Angeles have their own mask mandates that are still in effect.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed said that starting next Wednesday in his city, those vaccinated will no longer be required to wear masks in most indoor settings. However, the restrictions will remain for the unvaccinated, despite the widespread recognition that vaccines do not stop the spread and the countless public figures who have caught COVID-19 after being “fully vaccinated”.
Washington State students show up to school without masks and are expelled and threatened with suspension.
In Virginia, the Daily Caller reported, state Democrats voted for an amendment to end mask mandates just days after shaming Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin for not wearing a mask in a grocery store.
However, during the daily White House briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki said CDC guidelines recommending masking had not changed and Americans should continue to follow them.
The press secretary was asked why the CDC still insists on masking when Democratic states eliminate mandates.
PSAKI said “the CDC is moving at the pace of data and science.”
Asked by Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich why she criticized Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis for his masking policy but not Democratic governors lifting restrictions this week, Psaki said “there’s a clear difference” because that the Governor of Florida was standing “in the way” of people. who wanted to hide. But DeSantis’ policy is actually to give parents the freedom to decide whether or not their children should be masked, not school boards or local governments.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said her agency continues to “recommend masking.”
“We owe it to our kids to make sure they can stay in school safely,” she said in an interview with NPR affiliate WYPR in Baltimore. “Right now that includes masking. We have seen outbreaks occur in communities where students were not masked in schools and had to close.
But MSNBC medical contributor Dr. Kavita Patel, a former Obama administration official, told CNBC’s Squawk Box that parents should have the freedom to choose whether their child should wear a mask at school based on of various factors.
“If you told me there’s a future where we wear masks in perpetuity, I’d say that’s ridiculous, the science doesn’t support that if we see cases going down,” Patel said.
Daily cases of the milder but more contagious omicron variant fell 47% nationally in the past week, from 453,141 to 239,757.
White House coronavirus adviser Dr Anthony Fauci told the Financial Times that the “full-fledged” pandemic could soon be over.
“Hopefully we envision a time when we have enough people vaccinated and enough people protected from previous infection that Covid restrictions will soon be a thing of the past,” he said.
But Fauci thinks it “might be necessary to have yet another nudge, in this case a fourth nudge…which could be based on age as well as underlying conditions” .
Polls show a majority of voters, including a substantial portion of Democrats, say they are done with pandemic restrictions and want to move on.
