JUST IN: Biden Says ‘Free, High-Quality Masks’ to Be Available Across America, Details Soon


President Biden confirmed Thursday his plan to make available “free, high-quality masks” to household across America as the Omicron-variant spreads across all 50 states; vowing to release more details “next week.”

Biden also announced the government will be purchasing an additional 500 million Covid-19 tests, adding to the 500 million tests he previously announced.

 

“I know we all wish could finally be done with wearing masks, I get it, but they are a really important tool to stop the spread, especially of the highly transmissible Omicron variant,” Biden said from the White House.

“I know we’re all frustrated as we enter this new year — the Omicron variant is causing millions of cases and record hospitalizations,” he added. “Right now, both vaccinated and unvaccinated people are testing positive, but what happens after that could not be more different.”

“We were joking earlier — but we weren’t really joking: When you need something done, call in the military,” said the Commander-in-Chief, announcing his plan to deploy the US military to support staff in hotspots like New York and other places.

“These teams will be providing relief, triaging patients, helping to decompress overwhelmed emergency departments, and freeing up health care providers to continue other lifesaving care. They will be working alongside health care workers on the front lines to give them the support they need,” a White House official said on Monday night.

    N95s causing cognitive impairment in some people. That is what the US needs. https://clinmedjournals.org/articles/jide/journal-of-infectious-diseases-and-epidemiology-jide-6-130.php?jid=jide

    What is cognitive impairment? Cognitive impairment is when a person has trouble remembering, learning new things, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life. Cognitive impairment ranges from mild to severe.

    The government is incapable of paying for anything. But they are able to point a gun at you and make you pay for it.

    Have to send out “high quality” masks that most definitely work, since the media finally acknowledged masks dont do anything. I literally get angry when i have to deal with masked people everywhere im so sick of it, but obviously its not going anywhere.

    Whenever a politician says “free” it means “we took it out of your paycheck before you had a choice, you’re welcome!”

    I’m sure these will all be made in america and paid for out of our politicians’ pockets. Therr’s now way they’d steal our money and give it to china for things we don’t need!

    Have contingency plans in case of blackout from” powers that be”. I don’t know tech- y’all do.
    To coin a survivor phrase-Out Wit Outlast Outplay (if memory serves). Be wise as serpents…harmless as the dove. Thanks for listening…and giving us a voice. Remember they have no long term planning skills. Many fear “words”. Lies fear, for they have no solid foundation. We have to let America see who they are and what they are about. Biden’s statement smacks of desperation. It is gonna be a dog fight but war…always is. Even a culture war.

    Is that a high quality mask he’s wearing in the photo?

    Talk about a man who doesn’t even know what’s right under his nose….

    Look, here’s the deal, we don’t want your masks, we don’t want your tests, 15-20% of the country doesn’t want your shots, JUST GO AWAY, LEAVE US ALONE AND STOP SPENDING THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS’ MONEY!
