During an apparently impromptu meeting with reporters on Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris said that the White House was doing what is “necessary” to combat the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus by imposing a travel ban from South African countries, and urged people to get their booster shots.
This, despite scientists saying there’s no information available yet on the mutations of the variants or the effectiveness of currently offered shots meant for Covid.
“One, if you’ve not had the booster shot, get the booster shot,” Harris said. “I cannot stress enough the importance of getting vaccinated for those who have not been vaccinated. I will say what I say every time because it remains true. They are safe, the vaccines are safe. They are free, and they will save your life.”
The notions of safety of the so-called “vaccinations” have been challenged at every turn, from whistleblowers alleging they’re not as safe as Big Pharma claims to others pointing to a lack of reporting of adverse effects. Recently released records have shown that the number of officially reported adverse effects (which would still only represent less than one percent of actual events) is even higher than reports have said in the past.
Meanwhile, as Harris says that the travel ban from South African countries is “necessary” to prevent the strand of virus from entering the United States, just a year-and-a-half ago, she said that President Trump’s travel ban on China was “un-American” and “clearly driven by hate.”
Trump’s extended un-American travel ban undermines our nation’s core values. It is clearly driven by hate, not security. https://t.co/x0fHFKRHWo

“We’ll take it one step at a time,” Harris told reporters Saturday, “but as of now, we’ve done what we believe is necessary.”
So either Harris is being hypocritical by supporting Biden’s ban now, or she knew then that Trump’s ban was not only nonxenophobic, but also the right decision and used it to push a false narrative against the then-president’s alleged racism.
Which person do you want to be, Kamala? A hypocrite or a liar?

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
