With my pro-vaccine columns getting censored and dozens of people dropping off my subscriber list because of them, a friend wrote to me, saying, “I’d move on. Biden/Harris are doing plenty of other things wrong to write about.” There are a couple of things wrong with this approach.
First, the China virus is the issue of our lifetimes. If we don’t understand what’s going on in this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, nothing else matters. This virus can destroy a nation, as we are seeing in India. On the other hand, vaccines can save a nation, as we are seeing in Israel.
Many in the conservative movement are on the wrong side of this issue, agitating in tune with the Chinese and Russian media that Western-made vaccines are dangerous to human health and must be resisted. This position is fed by communist disinformation and constitutes a form of national suicide.
On another level, the hopelessly divided Republican Party is powerless to stop Biden/Harris because of Democratic Party domination of the executive and legislative branches of the federal government.
The only person that matters in this scheme of things is Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat who can side with Republicans in the Senate. There is some hope that the “Republican” Supreme Court will stop or reverse some Biden/Harris initiatives, and we should pressure the Court to do just that. But these decisions and rulings will come slowly.
