The Establishment Suddenly Changes Views on Coronavirus After Election and Inauguration
Anyone who predicted that the coronavirus would simply “go away” after the election was clearly wrong – but the way that predominantly liberal leaders and the media have suddenly changed their views on combating a surge in cases does go to show just strongly they politicized the virus.
Lockdowns Suddenly Bad: The logic of “stay home, save lives” is no more!
Even in the face of rising cases, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided that lockdowns aren’t worth the economic cost.
We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely.#SOTS2021

Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot said three days later that her city’s bars and restaurants need to be allowed to reopen “as quickly as possible.”
And anti-lockdown research suddenly began getting picked up in center-left publications.

Biden: On Second Thought, Actually There’s Nothing I Can Do: There’s no wonder why he didn’t campaign on this message.
Speaking to urge Congress to pass additional relief, Biden said “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” That comes after months of ripping Trump’s response to the virus.

This comes after Biden promised to “shut down the virus” in October.
The Vaccine Suddenly Appears – After the Election: The timing on this was a little suspicious, right?
Their CEO denies it, but it’s hard not to find it suspicious that Pfizer waited until November 9th, nearly a week after election day, to announce the completion of their coronavirus vaccine, the creation of which was catalyzed by Operation Warp Speed.
Pfizer would later cut donations to all 147 Republicans who voted against certifying the Electoral College results for at least six months.
Amazon Suddenly Willing to Help Distribute Vaccine – After the Inauguration: Again, the timing is just a *little* suspicious here.
Just days ago, Amazon sent Joe Biden a letter offering to help distribute the coronavirus vaccine nationwide. The CEO of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business wrote to Biden saying that they’re “prepared to leverage our operations, information technology and communications capabilities and expertise to assist your administration’s vaccination efforts.”
About 5% of the U.S. population has received at least one shot of the vaccine so far, and Biden promises to vaccinate 100 million people in his first 100 days (basically in line with the rate at which people were being vaccinated under the Trump administration).
Two senior Trump administration officials say Amazon never offered assistance to them. Amazon did communicate with the CDC, but no formal offer was made.
