But one aspect of the interview seemed to generate a lot of publicity.
The president said that he would “rapidly” mobilize the military to distribute a COVID-19 vaccine, when it’s ready, first focusing on nursing homes and people most vulnerable to the virus.
But, almost immediately, I started seeing ‘articles’ about forced vaccinations supported by President Trump.
However, the president wasn’t talking about mandatory vaccines, only voluntary ones… for now.
President Trump said:
“We’re mobilizing our military and other forces but we’re mobilizing our military on the basis that we do have a vaccine. You know, it’s a massive job to give this vaccine. Our military is now being mobilized so at the end of the year we’re going to be able to give it to a lot of people very, very rapidly,” the president said.
“We will have a tremendous force because assuming we get it, then you have to distribute it,” he added. “And unless you’re mobilized and ready, you’re not going to be able to do it for a long time. So we’re starting now.”
What worried me though, was the media response, which was immediately favorable.
Anytime the mainstream media agrees on one thing, I’m extremely wary. And in this instance, there’s a serious reason for concern.
We have seen over the past eight weeks how President Trump was manipulated into tanking the economy, despite evidence that suggests that this virus is nowhere near as deadly as was reported in the beginning.
We have seen how democrat governors have become power mad, using a police state to control citizens and private businesses, so that we will all be forced to rely on our new masters for government issued ‘stimulus’ money.
We have seen individual liberties trampled in the name of “health,” while families struggle to buy food.
So, the push for a vaccine is worrisome… and many of the ‘reports’ I saw this morning imply that the president supports a forced vaccination program.
Personally, I think this was contrived to drive a wedge between the president and his supporters, many of whom are rightly concerned that a DNA-altering vaccine combined with ‘injection-type’ contact tracing (which would be required to buy and sell) is a direct fulfillment of End Times prophesies.
But, the problem here is that although the president obviously wasn’t talking about forced vaccinations, what would stop them from becoming mandatory?
The entire COVID crisis seems deliberately contrived… contrived to destroy liberty, the economy, and President Trump in one fell swoop.
And, God help us, it looks like it’s succeeding.
