Covid and Corrupt Federal Statistics

by James Bovard

“Federal agencies don’t count what politicians don’t want to know. President Biden and other Democrats continuously invoke ‘science and data’ to sanctify all their Covid-19 mandates and policies, but the same shenanigans and willful omissions have characterized Covid data. During his update on his Winter Covid Campaign on Tuesday, President Biden declared, ‘Almost everyone who has died from COVID-19 in the past many months has been unvaccinated.’ This was true from the start of the pandemic in early 2020, until the vaccines’ efficacy began failing badly in recent months. Oregon officially classifies roughly a quarter of its Covid fatalities since August as ‘vaccine breakthrough deaths.’ In Illinois, roughly 30 percent of Covid fatalities have occurred among fully vaccinated individuals. … Honestly recognizing the limits of vaccines could be fatal to Biden’s push for compulsory vaccinations. The same policymakers who claim to be guided by data have little or no idea how many Americans have been hit by Covid.” (12/28/21)
