A Joe Biden coughing fit has caused a firestorm of speculation to erupt on social media. If you don’t know what I am talking about, you can watch Joe Biden repeatedly cough and clear his throat during his most recent press conference right here. It is being reported that Biden either coughed or cleared his throat 17 times during his 14 minute speech, and his voice was very hoarse the entire time. As you will see below, Biden is admitting that he has “a cold”, and perhaps that is all that it is. But there is a long tradition in Washington of politicians from both parties covering up major health problems, and many are wondering whether Biden is covering up something now. So could it be possible that Joe Biden is seriously ill? We may not get an immediate answer to that question, but without a doubt many of his supporters have become extremely alarmed.
For example, one Twitter user that watched the press conference said that Biden is “scaring us” by coughing so much, and another openly wondered whether Biden is in “need of a COVID test”…
Social media users took to Twitter to voice their worry and crack jokes with one user saying ‘Drink some water, Joe. You’re scaring us.’
One Twitter user asked ‘Does Biden need a COVID test?’ and another chimed in ‘Someone get Biden some Robitussin stat!!!’
And even a Biden apologist like NPR’s Scott Detrow has been forced to admit that this is “the most sustained coughing” that he has ever heard from Biden…
“To the main theme of the Twitterverse right now: Biden regularly clears his throat and coughs in speeches – especially at the beginning of remarks,” wrote NPR political correspondent Scott Detrow. “That’s the most sustained coughing I’ve heard though.”
There is no way that Biden could possibly claim to be at full health, and at this point he is telling the public that he has “a bit of a cold”…
“Thank you, I have a little bit of a cold, I’m sorry, but look, you know, you did it, you did it, not a joke,” Biden said during the live stream. “This campaign for president was more like the first time I ran as a 29-year-old for the Senate. I believed that ordinary folks and extraordinary folks would get together and make this work. You didn’t let us down. You didn’t let the country down. I really mean it, think about it.”
Of course in this environment if anyone starts repeatedly coughing those around them immediately begin wondering if that individual has COVID-19.
So has Joe Biden been tested within the past 24 hours?
I have not been able to find any news source that says that he has been.
Hopefully he will get tested very soon, because the American people deserve to know the truth.
And at 78 years of age, Biden is definitely in a very high risk group. Due to their advanced ages, I was deeply concerned about how President Trump and Joe Biden would hold up physically during this election season. Running for president takes a huge toll physically, mentally, emotionally and physically, and that makes candidates especially vulnerable to various diseases.
As speculation about Biden’s health heats up, a “new variant” of COVID-19 has been identified on the other side of the Atlantic…
A “new variant” of the COVID-19 virus has been identified in the United Kingdom and linked to a faster spread of the disease, Britain’s health secretary has said. The World Health Organization has been notified.
Matt Hancock announced that London and a number of other areas in the south of England will be placed under new harsher restrictions following “very sharp rises” in COVID cases.
So far, we are being told that approximately 1,000 people have tested positive for this new variant of the virus.
The big question that people are asking about this new strain is whether or not the recently developed vaccines will work against it.
As I have discussed previously, mutations can cause major problems for vaccine developers. For example, every 12 months scientists try to come up with a flu vaccine that they think will work against the strain or strains of the flu that they believe will be dominant that particular year. Sometimes the match is pretty good, and sometimes the match is not good at all. And when the match is not good, getting a flu vaccine is pretty much useless.
So could a similar thing happen with COVID-19? If a new mutation becomes dominant and the newly developed vaccines will not work against it, we could be back to square one very rapidly.
Of course there are millions upon millions of people that do not intend to take any COVID vaccine under any circumstances. Safety concerns keep being raised, and this week we learned that the FDA “recommends monitoring people” who get a vaccine to see if they develop Bell’s palsy…
U.S. Food and Drug Administration staff recommends monitoring people who get Pfizer or Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine shots for possible cases of Bell’s palsy, saying it’s not necessarily a side effect but worth watching out for after a handful of trial participants got the condition, which causes half of your face to droop.
If you are not familiar with Bell’s palsy, the following is a definition that comes from the Mayo Clinic…
Bell’s palsy, also known as acute peripheral facial palsy of unknown cause, can occur at any age. The exact cause is unknown. It’s believed to be the result of swelling and inflammation of the nerve that controls the muscles on one side of your face. Or it might be a reaction that occurs after a viral infection.
For most people, Bell’s palsy is temporary. Symptoms usually start to improve within a few weeks, with complete recovery in about six months. A small number of people continue to have some Bell’s palsy symptoms for life. Rarely, Bell’s palsy can recur.
Sadly, this is just one of the many “side effects” that we know about so far.
I believe that we have entered an era when multiple pandemics will be raging all over the globe, and so we should expect endless debates about vaccines, masks and lockdowns for the foreseeable future.
For decades, Americans could go about their daily lives without ever having to think about what viruses might be floating around out there, but now everything has changed.
The global elite would like to use the COVID-19 pandemic to “reset” the world in their own image, and we must not allow them to do that.
No matter how bad things get, we must stand up for our basic constitutional rights, because once they are gone it will be exceedingly difficult to ever get them back.
