More Biden Crises Erupt: COVID-19 😕

* See UPDATES below...

Good question, Ari...and it's one that others are also asking.

I'd also ask why he didn't organize a task force to launch an "Operation Warp Speed" to produce these test kits, as well as develop and produce theraputics, such as the "Operation Warp Speed" program ordered by former President Trump to research and produce vaccines for COVID-19

He's had months to do so, but sat on it instead. Why?

Add these to the many crises and failures of President Biden's first year in office...which started on Day One when he signed executive orders banning new oil and gas exploration and drilling on federal lands and cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline already well under construction from Canada, which led to an increase in the price of  WTI Crude Oil from 48.52 (at the December 2020 close) to a high of 85.41 this year. 

Of course, this higher cost ended up negatively affecting the costs of all goods and services and contributed to the inflationary numbers we're seeing today. 

Until Biden reverses these orders, inflation will remain high, with energy shortages becoming the norm...quite the reversal from the energy independence and low oil and gas prices that Americans enjoyed, for the first time, by the end of Trump's presidency, thanks to his policies.

Furthermore, until President Biden reverses his prior executive order which cancelled the completion of the wall which was well under construction (by the Trump administration) along the southern border of the country when he first took office, the U.S. will continue importing new COVID-19 cases and new variants via the thousands of illegal aliens who are entering every day...around 2 million did so already in 2021, and most of them were unvaccinated. There is no requirement by the Biden administration that they be vaccinated before being allowed to remain in the country, unlike the thousands of Americans who wish to work and eat at restaurants, etc...which is also contributing to supply chain shortages, worker and healthcare shortages, and inflation.

No wonder most Americans are suffering under his policies, which are negatively impacting national security, inflation, and the national debt, etc.

With three more years remaining under Biden's presidency, I doubt things will get any better any time soon...rather, quite the opposite, so brace yourselves.

* UPDATE January 11...

It looks like it's too late for President Biden to get a grip on the COVID-19 crisis...he failed to act in a timely manner...

Meanwhile, his top advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has some serious explaining to do regarding the origins of COVID-19...

And, there's this...

Americans...and the rest of the world...deserve truthful answers, once and for all...on a number of issues related to the pandemic, not just on the origins. 

I've no doubt they will get them, in due course...as is beginning to be released by the US CDC...

* UPDATE January 12...


* UPDATE January 13...





* UPDATE January 14...

Good question, Glenn...why are Democrats, including Joe Biden, protecting Russia's energy supply...while hamstringing America's oil and gas supply?

And, why did they use the fillibuster to block this bill on the same day that Biden was criticizing members of his own party for not supporting ending the fillibuster rule so he could get his voting rights agenda passed in the Senate?

It's all very nonsensical and hypocritical.

More bad news for Dr. Fauci, and, by extension, President Biden, regarding the origins of COVID-19, its funding, and the early findings on theraputics...
