COVID Exit Strategy
If you're paying attention to the mainstream corporate press, you'll see glimpses of the Biden Administration trying to set up a path to move on from COVID. For example, after getting beaten by the Supreme Court on the OSHA COVID jab, rather than lobby Congress to pass a law granting OSHA the necessary authority, they have dropped the topic entirely.
The Administration sees the polling. People are sick and tired of COVID and the various restrictions. The mainstream is (finally) starting to join the rest of us in seeing the folly of these restrictions. When "Cloth masks are little more than facial decorations" shows up on CNN, you know public opinion is changing. And when the people complaining about the restrictions are people who were previously their biggest proponents, it doesn't take a genius to see that being associated with those restrictions is a political losing battle.
Here's how I see this going down. Omicron has already peaked in most, if not all, US States, so the status quo will likely be in place for another 4-6 weeks or so until we get to spring. Then when COVID really slows down because of the warmer weather, the Biden Administration will declare victory and trot out President Biden to tell us how he promised he would win the war against COVID and that he has – that COVID now is nothing more than a virus like the flu and we can all resume normal life. They will urge remaining governors to remove all restrictions. They'll have Fauci, Walensky and all the other doomer talking heads make the media rounds telling everyone how it's all safe now and how the President took decisive action that resulted in victory over COVID. It'll be a complete lie, but it will be the lie they spread.
