Sowing fear is indeed the Biden administration’s number one goal. For a president who wants to imitate FDR in terms of unconstitutional government expansion, Joe Biden wants nothing to do with FDR’s famous maxim, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Unfortunately, under this administration, rank politicization is the best we can expect from the federal government. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been discredited by its own actions and leadership. Meanwhile, more than 107 million Americans are reportedly fully vaccinated, and 250 million doses have been distributed. Another 32 million are largely safe because they’ve already had COVID (there’s certainly overlap in that number with the vaccinated).
It’s not time for more pronouncements of doom or for collusion between political interest groups to keep the fear going. Instead, you could be forgiven for asking if it isn’t time for state and local governments, as well as churches, businesses, and everyone else, to start ignoring Walensky, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the CDC and get on with living.
The CDC is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services and works to “protect” America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S.
Biosecurity-related organizations and divisions operating under the CDC include:
The CDC uses grants and cooperative agreements to fund research and non-research public health programs that advance the Agency’s public health mission domestically and abroad to keep Americans safe and healthy. Each year, CDC awards approximately 4,200 grants and cooperative agreements. This generates approximately 11,000 actions and obligates approximately $5.0 billion in federal funds.
The CDC uses contracts to purchase goods and services such as supplies, vaccines, Information Technology, and equipment. The CDC processes more than 13,000 contracts each year, obligating approximately $5.0 billion in federal funds annually.
