(FiveNation.com)- In early December, the Centers for Disease Control reported that most of the COVID cases in the US that were caused by the Omicron variant were among people who were fully vaccinated. A third of those also received a booster shot.
Granted, the number of Omicron cases at the time was only 43. But of those 43 with Omicron, 34 of them were fully vaccinated. Fourteen of those 34 also received the booster.
But that hasn’t stopped President Biden from continuing to claim that this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
Just last week from his pretend White House set, Biden again made that claim:

Biden’s desperate need to pretend that the vaccines protect people from COVID belies his claim that he’s “listening to the experts.” On Monday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky admitted that the vaccines cannot stop the transmission of COVID.
“What the vaccines can't do anymore is prevent transmission."

Walensky doesn’t seem to realize that what she said to Wolf Blitzer in that clip effectively nullifies the Biden administration’s argument to the Supreme Court over the vaccine mandates. If the vaccine doesn’t prevent people from contracting or spreading COVID, what’s the point of forcing employers to require their employees get vaccinated?
During Monday’s press briefing Jen Psaki was challenged by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy on why the President insists on calling this a pandemic of the unvaccinated when fully vaccinated people are getting COVID.

Ah, so it isn’t the pandemic of the unvaccinated, it’s the hospitalization of the unvaccinated. Psaki’s spin notwithstanding, the fact remains this virus is being spread through the population regardless of vaccination status.
Omicron is far milder. Unlike the Delta variant or the initial strain of COVID, Omicron does not attack the lungs but remains in the upper respiratory tract. Even the World Health Organization concedes that Omicron is not leading to the rate of hospitalizations we’ve seen in the past.
But Biden’s “pandemic of the unvaccinated” isn’t based on the science; it’s based on Biden’s desperate attempt to justify forcing Americans to get a vaccine they don’t want.
Last week, One America News aired a brief segment on Biden’s insistence in claiming the unvaccinated are the ones spreading COVID.
