FLASHBACK: Biden Administration Promised It Wouldn’t Mandate COVID-19 Vaccine

For months, President Joe Biden, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and other key members of the Biden administration swore that the federal government would not mandate the COVID-19 shot.

In his latest fascist move, however, the president announced on Thursday that his administration will force private-sector employers with 100 or more employees to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine or demand a negative test weekly.

This decision is based on a lie, which Biden proudly proclaimed during his justification for the new Labor Department rule.

“This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Biden said in a speech on Thursday. Later, he tweeted that “people are dying and will die from COVID-19 who don’t have to.”

“If you haven’t gotten vaccinated, do it now. It could save your life and the lives of those you love,” he wrote.

These aren’t the first lies Biden has told about the Wuhan virus. Shortly before the COVID-19 shot was made available in December 2020, Biden publicly declared that he didn’t think the vaccine should be mandatory.

In March, Psaki said that one of the “key principles” used by the administration to address COVID was that there would be “no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential.”

Psaki repeated this lie through her other press briefings and noted that the government wanted to ensure “these systems are not used against people unfairly.”

“That’s not the role of the federal government,” she said in July. “That’s the role that institutions, private-sector entities, and others, may take.”

Fauci and CDC officials also peddled this narrative, agreeing that there would be “no nationwide mandate.”

None of these previous objections, however, were addressed by the president in his most recent speech.

By now, Americans shouldn’t be surprised that the federal government was lying to them. Since assuming office, Biden and his team have flip-flopped on nearly every COVID-19 mitigation strategy under the sun.

In December, Biden called for 100 days of masking to stop the spread of the virus. Now, nine months into his tenure in the White House, Americans are still subject to a federal mask mandate when they travel.

His administration also flip-flopped on its school reopening goals based on the whims and wishes of leftist teachers unions. The same thing happened with the CDC’s ever-changing mask guidelines.

Biden spent much of his time on the campaign trail calling for unity and promising to beat the virus. Now it’s more apparent than ever that his administration is really just using lies and deception to force their agenda on the American public without regard for the law or Constitution.
