President Joe Biden gave a nearly 30-minute speech to the nation on the one-year anniversary of the day America went into some kind of government-mandated lockdown as a result of COVID-19.
If you were unable to attend, be assured that you did not miss anything unforeseen. Biden praised his handling of the vaccine rollout and opened his speech by criticizing the Trump administration’s handling of the virus.

The big news was that, by May 1, every American would be eligible for the vaccine, which he assumed full responsibility for despite having only been in office for 51 days.
Then there were the standard warnings on how to stop the virus from spreading.
“In the coming weeks, we will issue more guidelines on what you can and cannot do until completely vaccinated, to lessen the uncertainty, keep people safe, and encourage more people to get vaccinated,” says the president.
President Biden says more guidance is coming on what Americans “can and cannot do” once vaccinated.

Take note of the terminology used here: “what you can and cannot do.” It’s not a question of what you should or shouldn’t do. This was more of an order than a warning. Men, wait for us to tell you what to do. We’re working on it right now.
And if you’re very lucky, America, you might be able to throw a socially distant Fourth of July party that’s similar to what you used to have.
“I swear I will do everything in my power to defeat this virus, and I will not give up until we do, but I need you, the American people. I want your assistance. I need everybody in the United States to chip in. That isn’t exaggeration. “I need you,” Biden pleaded with America in such pleading words that it seemed as though Teddy Pendergrass’ body had been resurrected only to write that line.
“I need you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn and whenever you can find an opportunity,” he said, adding that he also wants his family, friends, and neighbors to get vaccinated.
“Because here’s the point: If we all do our part, if we all do it together, by July 4th, there’s a fair chance you, your relatives, and your friends will be able to get together in your backyard or neighborhood and have a cookout and a barbeque and celebrate Independence Day.”
Tucker Carlson of Fox News went on the air shortly after Biden finished his speech. His thoughts on the topic are mostly mine — and, I hope, those of everyone who understood the implications of Biden’s words.
Furthermore, every time a liberal is forced to watch Tucker Carlson say something, their systolic blood pressure increases by at least 10 points. (I don’t have any research to back this up, but the Biden administration isn’t exactly a science-based administration, so there you go.)
As a result, I send you Tucker, who explains in under a minute why Biden’s promises about vaccines are false:

As Carlson pointed out, Biden’s scheme consisted of “vaccines, vaccines, and more vaccines.”
“If you take that shot, things might probably return to normal. Carlson summed up Biden’s tone by saying, “No mention at all of the people who may not want to take that shot.” “However, the president mentioned that if you take that shot, put on your mask, and listen to Dr. Fauci, you may be able to meet — in small groups — with the people you care about for the Fourth of July.
“We may have to revoke that right, but if you’re obedient, it’s likely you’ll get it.”
“Who are you conversing with?” We are a free people. Carlson stressed, “This is a free world.”
“How dare you tell us with whom we should celebrate the Fourth of July?”
Carlson’s remarks, which came 60 seconds after Biden’s speech, were in addition to the night’s highlight: Fox News’ Carlson reaction cam, which broadcast the host’s facial expressions in response to Biden’s speech. (It occurred during Carlson’s regularly scheduled broadcast, so it wasn’t as bizarre as some in the media claimed.)

These are included because they are in stark contrast to other people’s reactions to the voice.
I get New York Times updates on my phone, partly because it’s part of my work, and partly because it serves like a digital inoculation, exposing my system to tiny, harmless bits of liberal insanity that generate useful antibodies that brace my system for when I’m hit with the full-on viral wave of absurdity and (in this case) Biden 15 minutes later.
