The CDC To Relax Masking Rules -- Just Before Brandon's State of the Union

I've been mentioning that the Ruthless podcast guys predicted that Brandon would announce an end to school masking rules during the SOTU. Their evidence was that Brandon had played games with human lives when he set the date for the Afghan withdrawal for the symbolic date of 9/11 -- despite the fact that this was during the fighting season -- the fighting season being from spring to late fall. It would have made far more sense to withdrawal during the winter, when the weather would act as an allied force to check the Taliban's advance, but Brandon wanted his Historic Date Stunt.*

And so he Killed Some Folks. They talk about that with Megyn Kelly starting at 18:45.

Based on that, the Ruthless podcast guys reasoned that Brandon had the CDC's Walenski and the NIAID's Fauci talking about maybe, possibly relaxing the mask guidance "soon" and "in the near future" for the past couple of months, in order to appease Democrat politicians who are fearful of getting shellacked over the issue, while absolutely refusing to actually change the guidance.

Until, that is, he could announce its end during the State of the Union.

Well, it sure does look like the Ruthless guys were 100% right, because just five day before Tuesday night's SOTU, the CDC leak it to the Washington Post that they'll be changing their "guidance."

Note they are still refusing to undo the masking recommendations that the teachers unions and crazed Karens demand -- they won't actually say that people can stop wearing masks, or that Dirty Filthy Children can stop wearing masks.

They'll just push the decision off to local boards of health, to decide based on local covid hospitalization rates.

But this will still sound like some kind of progress at the State of the Union.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will soon loosen its mask guidelines by weighing metrics such as hospital capacity and coronavirus admissions, rather than simply looking at case counts, so more people can feel comfortable going maskless in indoor public spaces, according to two senior administration officials and two people familiar with the plans.

The change comes weeks after numerous states, including those led by Democratic governors, announced plans to lift mandates as omicron cases drop sharply. But states have long been pressing the agency for better guidelines to inform their decisions to ease restrictions, the officials said.

The CDC could announce the new guidelines as soon as Friday, according to the Associated Press. A CDC spokeswoman declined to say when the CDC would announce its updated guidance.

But you'll announce them by Tuesday night though, right? Maybe put out a press release by 5pm, early enough to make it to the 6:30 pm nightly newscasts, and in time for Brandon to mention during his 9pm address?


Behold The Science (TM) in action.


I added this point to the last CDC post, too late for people to notice it.

I don't agree with the Vulgar Marxism of the left. "Vulgar Marxism" is an epithet applied to Marxist/leftist thinking that attempts to explain behavior in the capitalist west in the crudest way possible: "Oh, of course that happened, someone's just making money from that."

No matter how far-fetched it might be that someone was doing X for money might be. Thus, the adjective "Vulgar" in the phrase. The thinking is vulgar, crude, unrefined, reflexive. Stupid, even by the debased terms of typical Marxism.

But Russel Brand did make a Vulgar Marxist point I said "Hmmmm" to:

His point was that the west, which pays for vaccines, is pretty much all vaxed up, as far as adults go. The market is saturated. The only unvaccinated adults are those who can't be vaccinated or won't be vaccinated.

The only adults yet unvaccinated are in the third world, who are charity cases, to whom vaccines must be donated for zero cost, or else sold for just above cost.

But you know who you can get vaccinated, still, and get paid money for, at full costs, no discounts?

Kids. Kids in the wealthy west.

So thus the push to vaccinate not just kids, but kids as young as two years old.

Five years ago, hell, two years ago, I would have said, "No way, your pinko paranoia is getting the best of you."

But now...?
