Another day, another fiasco under the Biden administration.
This time, however, the fiasco is originating from two major federal agencies: The FDA, in close conjunction with the CDC. And what does this fiasco pertain to?
Sadly, and perhaps unsurprisingly, a highly recommended “pause” on administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for, you guessed it: severe side effects.

Well, that’s the news that just about everyone didn’t want to hear in the middle of a work week.
Per the FDA, apparently six reported cases of “rare and severe” blood clotting have occurred amongst the 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that have been administered.
Of course, a key word to keep in mind is “reported.” After all, one would naturally wonder what is being unreported.
Which is perhaps why the FDA promptly extolled the supposed rarity of severe blood clotting while simultaneously recommending a pause in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine distribution.
“Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare … Treatment of this specific type of blood clot is different from the treatment that might typically be administered. CDC will convene a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Wednesday to further review these cases and assess their potential significance. FDA will review that analysis as it also investigates these cases.” [Source: Fox News]
Ah, good old key words. Just like “reported” above, the FDA instantly commences rather obvious CYA by starting its entire statement with “Right now.”
Translation: Things may change drastically in the near-immediate future.
In fact, things are already changing drastically, given that nations from Spain to South Africa have already halted distribution in light of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine fiasco.
Of course, the Biden administration, ever quick to defend its supposed leadership, has already had one of its White House sycophants issue a rather confident proclamation to the public.

Wow, May 31. So all Americans can be vaccinated by May 31, while a significant percentage of the nation’s children remain out of school? Interesting timeline.
Even if the Biden administration truly does have enough Moderna and Pfizer vaccines available for “all Americans” by May 31, it has one person and one person only to thank for that: Trump, whose “Operation Warp Speed” delivered the vaccines the Biden administration desperately needed in the first place.
Which Trump himself reminded Americans of in a recently released statement.
“Remember, it was the FDA working with Pfizer, who announced the vaccine approval two days after the 2020 Presidential Election. They didn’t like me very much because I pushed them extremely hard. But if I didn’t, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for 3-5 years, or maybe not at all. It takes them years to act! Do you testing, clean up the record, and get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back online quickly. The only way we defeat the China Virus is with our great vaccines!” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Exactly correct, Trump.
Of course, scant, if any, credit is given to Trump, in spite of his repeated, tireless efforts to put America, and Americans, first.
In fact, Pfizer’s rather inconvenient timing for Trump (albeit impeccable timing for the Democrats) is one of the many ways in which the 2020 election was a total sham, and the individuals, or at least the legal citizens, just might be regretting their choice now.
Illegal migrants, on the other hand, are surely rejoicing well into the night, given that the Biden administration is vastly more dedicated to them (or, more accurately, more future votes) than it ever will be to the American people.
