Joe Biden misled the public once again.
Biden made a promise about the coronavirus vaccine that he intends to break.
Jen Psaki had some bad news about making the coronavirus vaccine mandatory.
After a series of economic, national security, energy, and immigration crises began to inflict political damage on the Biden administration, the Centers for Disease Control rode to the rescue with new recommendations that vaccinated Americans did not need to wear a mask indoors or social distance.
At the following White House press briefing, a reporter asked Psaki if the administration would support 1930s Germany-style vaccine passport laws to require Americans to show proof of receiving the coronavirus vaccination to engage in everyday life.
Psaki then pulled off a clever sleight of hand.
In response to the question, Psaki tried to reassure Americans the administration would not subject the public to a government mandate to get the vaccine.
“The government is not now nor will we be supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential,” Psaki stated.
Psaki also claimed Americans would not be forced to carry a federally mandated vaccine passport.
“There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential,” Psaki added.
But the trick came in her next statement.
Just like how Democrats outsource censorship to Big Tech so as to avoid any First Amendment issues, Psaki stated that woke corporations were free to require employees and customers to present vaccine passports to go to work or engage in commerce.
“As these tools are being considered by the private and non-profit sectors, our interest is very simple from the federal government, which is Americans’ privacy and rights should be protected so these systems are not used against people unfairly,” Psaki added.
Americans should have known there was a catch coming.
After Biden announced the new Centers for Disease Control guidelines on masks, Biden threatened Americans that if they did not receive the coronavirus vaccine they would be wearing masks forever.
“After a year of hard work and so much sacrifice, the rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” a post on social media written by Joe Biden’s handlers read.
Polls show Americans do not like woke corporations throwing their weight around to advance a political agenda.
If companies began requiring vaccine passports it would only increase the politicization of the coronavirus vaccine or cause more Americans to dig in and refuse to take the shot.
The Biden administration already squandered the peace in the Middle East and the recovering economy left behind by the Trump administration.
Now Joe Biden aims to flush down the drain the credibility of the vaccines created by the Trump administration by signaling to their woke CEO allies that it’s all clear to require vaccine passports at the companies and places of business.
