In Brief: Wait, the Pandemic’s Over?

The timing of the mask announcement seems … suspicious.

After the CDC granted vaccinated Americans “permission” to go about unmasked, The Spectator’s Stephen Miller is saying, Hey, wait a minute, something’s fishy…

Just like that? Nothing about this pandemic, or the science behind it, or the vaccines that have stopped it, tells us that something changed suddenly and magically for vaccinated people [Thursday]. But [now] we can finally lose our masks, as President Biden’s CDC finally announced a full loosening of mask restrictions other than crowded indoor spaces and public transportation. Joe Biden wants you to believe that this day arrived by the good graces of science and his administration’s tireless work, but that would be incorrect. The public has been getting vaccinated since early January and we are now five months into 2021. It’s the same vaccine, yet we are supposed to buy the idea that … May 13, 2021, will go down in history as the day the pandemic suddenly ended.

Miller suspects something else is at play.

Perhaps Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci finally found Florida and Texas on a map and that is why they chose today to lift CDC mask recommendations. Or, more believably, perhaps the Biden administration found itself on the back end of its most disastrous week since taking over on January 20 and needed to apply an emergency brake as the news cycle spun out of its control. The Biden administration was faced with skyrocketing inflation, a catastrophic jobs report that shows the country sliding backwards, the news that Russian hackers shut down a pipeline which led to fuel shortages throughout most of the eastern and southern US — and just [Thursday] morning, dodging questions on if the administration helped in any way facilitate a $5 million ransom payment, as well as a growing conflict between Israel and Gaza. Biden was hitting a 10 on the 1 to Jimmy Carter scale. For the first week since his presidency began, Joe Biden was in free-fall.

Could it be that his handlers decided it was time for some dramatically good news?
