Joe Biden may not have cured cancer, but it looks like he cured the Wuflu.
Yes, the COVID cases are dropping. Just in time for Biden to take credit for the Trump economy. And while Leftists still threaten America and the world with the mutated strains of the virus, for now things might be looking up.

What do we credit with this new shift in COVID cases and ultimately deaths?
The mask mandate by Executive Order from Bonehead the Braindead? Or perhaps the forward-thinking of governors like Cuomo and Newsom who shut down their economies?
Right out of the Democrats’ playbook lies the opportunity for the economy killers to take credit for bringing back the economies they killed.
I said post-election that Democrats want America to credit them for allowing freedom again. So they will wait a short while for people to hurt a bit more, then save Americans from lockdowns and mask mandates soon.
But as I indicated earlier, the Wuflu derivatives wait in the wings for Leftists to impose future lockdowns, if needed.
What a quick shift
I’m amazed at how fast things shifted. Given the gravity of the situation, one must wonder how the virus took such a sudden turn?
All sarcasm aside, I know exactly what the Left did. They manipulated the numbers.
Wuflu cases have been in the millions for months. But the deaths are few and far between. Manipulated data, pure and simple.
Sadly, these manipulations do occur. Leftists sit alongside the mainstream media in utter denial. And they work to paint whistleblowers as liars. But when you look at the covid numbers, many things don’t add up. And these discrepancies aren’t just a “new math” problem.
Rebekah Jones, a former state data scientist, says she was fired when she refused to manipulate covid data. Previously, Jones was praised by the White House for the Dashboard she designed.
The White House wasn’t the only entity to praise Jones.
She was recently listed as one of Fortune’s 40 under 40 this year. Forbes said:
Jones began thinking about building a national database, and in August, she solidified a partnership with Google and nonprofit FinMango. With Google’s cloud computing and data capabilities and FinMango to help manage the project, Jones is now building a data set for every school district in the U.S., including opening dates, restrictions, and number of cases in each district.
In December, Florida agents knocked on her door and took all her “hardware and tech” after showing her a warrant based on a complaint filed by the Florida Department of Health. Fall from grace? Maybe. Leftists bullying the truth-tellers? I’d consider that far more likely.
And now that Biden needs to put Covid in the win column, we can expect a lot more manipulation to go down. Alongside a lot more denial. Unfortunately, it will be easy for these mistruths to fly by for as long as the media is allowed to no longer do their jobs.
There was a time when reporters hid their personal beliefs, and hid them well. They did so for good reason. These journalists of a yesteryear were searching for the most illusive creature in all of politics: truth.
Now, journalists quickly lay claim to one side or the other. And rarely is a member of the media willing to attach themselves to conservatives. So, what we’re left with is a newscast that doesn’t deliver the news. It only backs an opinion.
And these days, opinions say Biden saved us from the WuFlu. Only two weeks into his presidency. Ironically, even Biden doesn’t believe that horseshit.
Last week, after months of criticizing Trump’s approach, Biden appeared to admit the truth.
… there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months,” Biden said.
The idea that nothing will change the pandemic drew confusion and ire from figures in politics and the media.
“Haven’t we been told for months that restrictions and mandates were necessary to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months?” former Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, a libertarian, tweeted.
Fox News contributor and former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, criticized Biden for his fatalist sentiment.
“Already giving up,” Chaffetz tweeted. “Banner headlines in all major media outlets? Nope. Most will bury this but it is a stunning admission. Biden says ‘nothing we can do’ to change pandemic ‘trajectory’ in coming months.”
