Joe Biden is shaping up to be the worst president the United States has ever had the misfortune of electing. Granted, he wasn’t really ‘elected,’ but that’s another story.
Due to the failure of his administration to tackle the China Virus pandemic, Biden recently has enacted a series of tyrannical measures in the hopes that overreaching government interference into the private lives of American citizens will be the ‘Final Solution’ to his political nightmare.
The supposed “Empathy President” is demanding that business owners force vaccinations on their employees. This unconstitutional and brutal act of authoritarianism has been ridiculed with promises of legal backlash from Republican governors and attorneys general. To punish the GOP dissenters, Joe Biden has decided to ration life-saving monoclonal antibody treatments to Red states who dare question his authority.
Meanwhile, in Biden’s estimation, these Red states are supposedly the areas where delta variant outbreaks are most widespread, so wouldn’t the logical move be to increase shipments of monoclonal antibody treatments to said states? Or can we all just agree that an ongoing pandemic and forced vaccinations are no longer about public health, but about political power grabbing?
The treatment for the Chinese coronavirus is in high demand in Red states where some residents are still not vaccinated, as well as for those who are vaccinated but still contracted the virus.
But the Department of Health and Human services has restricted shipments of the treatment to Florida and other southern states.
In Florida, HHS provided less than 31,000 doses this week — half of the 70,000 doses requested by the state.
That prompted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to publicly condemn the Biden administration.
“We are very, very concerned with the Biden administration and the HHS’s recent, abrupt, sudden announcement that they are going to dramatically cut the number of monoclonal antibodies that are going to be sent to the state of Florida,” DeSantis said Thursday.
DeSantis warned that even more doses were needed in his state as they faced a likely surge in coronavirus cases in the fall and winter months.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida also condemned the Biden administration’s decision in a video posted on social media.

Other figures joined in the condemnation of the Biden administration, including Donald Trump Jr.
Americans will die because of Biden's despicable decision to punish his political enemies in red states by restricting their ability to secure life-saving monoclonal antibody treatments for all that need them.
Their blood is directly on Joe's hands.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the actions of the HHS during the daily press briefing on Thursday, noting that just seven states were using 70 percent of the orders obtained by the federal government.
She indicated that governors were failing to protect their residents by not pressuring them further to get vaccinated for the coronavirus.

The decision by the HHS to cut shipments is puzzling, as just last week Biden announced he would increase shipments of the antibody treatments by 50% to escalate the fight against the virus.
Biden, September 9, 2021:
"Tonight, I’m announcing we will increase the average pace of shipment across the country of free monoclonal antibody treatments by another 50 percent."

Companies currently manufacturing the life-saving treatment have indicated their willingness to ramp up production, yet the Biden administration insist on continuing to punish Red states for political reasons. Lives will be sacrificed and avoidable deaths will skyrocket all thanks to the decisions of our “empathetic” president.
Like Don Jr. said, “Their blood is directly on Joe’s hands.”
