Fighting The Virus, Open The Schools, Lowering Drug Costs

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer: Fighting The Virus
Yesterday's White House briefing was an extraordinary commentary on what the Trump/Pence Administration has accomplished to get us to the point we're at today. Pfizer is now applying for an emergency use authorization for its vaccine against a virus we only learned about in January.

Usually it takes many years to develop a new vaccine. This time it took only months. And Dr. Fauci made it clear that no corners were cut. This incredible delivery was possible because of the technological breakthroughs that the Trump Administration advanced.

"Speed did not compromise at all safety, nor did it compromise scientific integrity," Fauci said. "It was a reflection of the extraordinary scientific advances in these types of vaccines."

Once the FDA approves a vaccine, mass distribution of millions of doses will begin within 24 to 48 hours of approval.

Yesterday's summary of all that has been done stands in stark contrast to the rollout of the Obamacare website and to what Joe Biden said at his third fake press conference just a few hours before.

Addressing concerns that he might shutdown the economy again, Biden said, "I'm not going to shut down the economy, I'm going to shut down the virus."

In a city that has grown powerful based on little more than hot air and rhetoric, Joe Biden just won the "BS Award of All Time" for that statement. The virus is clearly going to be shut down over the next 12 months but it won't have anything to do with Joe Biden.

His contribution has been hiding in his basement while complaining, distorting and undermining everything that Donald Trump, Mike Pence and their appointees have attempted to do.

What you saw in Biden's statement is that this bald-faced liar is setting the stage now, and he will have the help of a willing media, to claim credit next year (if he wins) when the vaccines developed under the Trump/Pence team are making the virus a sad chapter in America's history.

If people like Kamala Harris and Joe Biden had any decency, they would be apologizing for undermining the integrity of the vaccine. They have planted seeds of doubt in the most vulnerable Democrat voting blocs, most notably black Americans.

What they did in their desire to hurt President Trump will cost lives. They have a moral obligation to make this right.

Open The Schools
It wasn't only Joe Biden who got slapped down yesterday. For months now, the entire media complex has defended liberal politicians, like Bill de Blasio, who closed schools and attacked anyone, including the president, who advocated keeping them open.

School closings, as even a New York Times columnist acknowledges, were based on arbitrary standards that have little to do with science or experience. Yesterday, Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, made that absolutely clear.

Dr. Redfield reminded reporters that the CDC never once recommended closing schools. Then he added:

"The truth is, for kids K through 12, one of the safest places they can be . . . is to remain in school. . . And I'm here to say clearly: The data strongly supports that K-through-12 schools, as well as institutes of higher learning, really are not where we're having our challenges. And it would be counterproductive . . . from a public health point of view . . . to say, 'Let's close the schools.'"

Media Conspiracy Theories
As we noted yesterday, the Trump/Pence campaign is continuing its fight to get illegal votes removed from the vote totals, and to prevent it from happening again in the future. Of course, every Democrat and their media allies are attacking that effort and acting like it is somehow illegal.

I'm sure you have noticed that they are attacking concerns about election integrity as "conspiracy theories," and warning that we are undermining confidence in our electoral system.

Well, after years of pushing the Russia hoax on the country, the Democrats and their media allies have lost all credibility and any right to lecture us about "conspiracy theories."

But I want to remind you about something else. Not that long ago, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the media were insisting, without any proof, that President Trump was going to steal the election through some elaborate plot executed by the U.S. Postal Service.

It was a textbook example of a conspiracy theory. It was laughable on its face, especially given that the Postal workers union endorsed Joe Biden.

There was no evidence for the left's charge, but it was repeated over and over and over. There was no media skepticism of this wild claim. No journalist demanded evidence from Pelosi and Schumer. Nobody accused them of undermining our democracy.

Now these same people scream "Conspiracy Theory!" when we dare to point out that 70% of Detroit's 134 absentee ballot-counting boards couldn't properly match the number of voters to ballots cast.

The Totalitarian Left
The anti-Trump Lincoln Project has launched a jihad to identify and dox any attorney representing the president's campaign. They are publishing their personal information online, putting them and their families at risk. One of Trump's lawyers in Pennsylvania is now under police protection due to unhinged leftist threats against her.

Leftists even threatened the children of the Wayne County, Michigan, Board of Canvassers. Joe Biden didn't condemn it. The media didn't condemn it.

This is a fascist tactic that is un-American, and one of the reasons why this country is so divided. The left did it to Nick Sandmann, a high school student who took a trip to Washington, D.C. They have ruined lives.

While the left won't admit it, this blatant intimidation is one of the arrows in their quiver. And the reason Biden and other Democrats don't condemn it is because it is a useful tool to advance their cause.

Lawyers who represent jihadist suspects in Gitmo get less blowback for representing terrorists than a lawyer representing President Trump or any conservative cause.
Lowering Drug Costs
Moments ago, President Trump announced additional steps intended to lower drug costs. The president is cutting out "middlemen" and requiring $40 billion in rebates to be passed on directly to consumers.

Another part of the president's plan is meant to ensure that big pharmaceutical companies are not charging seniors more than they charge for the same drug in other countries.

For example, the president noted that a common breast cancer medication costs five times more in this country than it does in other countries. Why should our citizens be subsidizing the socialized healthcare of Europeans?

According to some estimates, this could lower Medicare drug payments as much as 30%, and it's just one more example of President Trump putting America first.

Sadly, this issue is one of the reasons the reelection was so challenging for the president. When he took on Big Pharma, the drug industry hit back hard. Here in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., I saw almost as many negative ads by Big Pharma attacking Trump as I saw Biden ads.
