(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- As Washington DC is once again turned into a military no-go zone in preparation for President Biden’s March 1 State of the Union address, the President’s COVID response team has not held a public briefing for nearly two weeks, despite the Centers for Disease Control just walking back some of their COVID guidelines.
Just in time for Biden’s speech, the CDC announced that 70 percent of Americans are now free to ditch masking and social distancing. But rather than have this announced by the President’s COVID response team, the news of the change came from CDC Director Rochelle Walensky during a briefing call with reporters.
In addition to the CDC guidelines changing, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also announced that the mask mandate on Capitol Hill has been lifted just in time for Biden’s March 1 address.
During Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the last-minute change and if the timing had anything to do with the President’s State of the Union speech.
Naturally, Psaki denied that this was an optics maneuver to give old Joe something positive to talk about on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, President Biden still doesn’t seem to be aware that the masking guidelines have changed.
Yesterday, the president returned to the White House after spending the weekend in Delaware. And during his long walk from Marine One to the White House, the stiff-legged Biden kept his N95 mask on despite being outside and nowhere near another living soul.

The Democrats have finally figured out that their COVID response is killing their chances in the Midterms.
According to the recent Washington Post/ABC News Poll which has Biden at an abysmal 38 percent approval, the Republicans have a 7-point advantage over Democrats in the generic congressional vote – 49 to 42.
Biden’s handling on the COVID pandemic, meanwhile, is underwater by 6 points with only 44 percent approving and 50 percent disapproving.
That’s why these guidelines were miraculously lifted just in time for Biden’s speech. The only “science” that changed here was the science of polling.
