Doctors across the country are expressing shock and outrage after the Biden regime shut off distribution of monoclonal antibodies, preventing them from treating patients infected with the Delta coronavirus with the life-saving therapeutic.
In a letter addressed to Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra Tuesday, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo accused the Biden administration of “actively preventing the effective distribution of monoclonal antibody treatments,” undermining Florida’s strategy to handle the disease.
The Biden administration paused shipments of the monoclonal antibodies because according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the treatment isn’t effective against Omicron, which they claim became the dominant strain earlier this month.
However, the CDC has now admits that it seriously miscalculated the prevalence of the Omicron variant in the US, according to the Daily Mail reported, “overblowing the figure by as much as 50 percentage points, sowing confusion as the nation breaks records for new cases.”
The agency released a revised chart on Tuesday showing that the new variant accounted for 23 percent of all COVID-19 cases for the week ending on December 18, as opposed to the 73 percent it originally reported.
The chart showed that the Omicron variant accounted for 59 percent of all new cases for the week ending on December 25, meaning the Delta variant has been accounting for far more infections than the agency initially thought, though Omicron is gaining ground quickly.
While the federal government continues to distribute Sotrovimab, a monoclonal antibody from the company Glaxosmithkline that reportedly does work against Omicron, Ladapo argued that “the federal agencies under your control should not limit our state’s access to any available treatments for Covid-19.”
He said HHS “announced a dramatic reduction in the number of monoclonal antibodies to be allocated to the State of Florida” without providing advanced notice shortly after Florida had treated 100,000 patients with the effective therapeutic.
In conclusion, Ladapo referenced comments Biden made on Monday admitting that there isn’t a federal to end the nearly two-year-old pandemic.
“There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level,” Biden said at the time in response to Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson warning the president against letting “federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions.”
“I respectfully request that you allow states and healthcare practitioners to provide treatment options that best benefit the communities they know and serve,” Ladapo wrote.
Ladapo, whom DeSantis appointed in September after the former surgeon general resigned, has also made headlines for opposing measures such as school mask mandates.
In September, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis hammered the Biden administration for overhauling the distribution of monoclonal antibodies in a way that will severely hamper the treatment’s availability in several Republican-controlled states.
The Department of Health and Human Services alarmed authorities in several southern, red states — where the antibodies are widely used — after announcing that the agency would be changing how the COVID-19 treatment is distributed.
Numerous other doctors blasted the Biden administration on social media for withholding distribution of the lifesaving treatment.
“US govt hastily stops monoclonal antibody distribution declaring it ineffective against omicron,” said Dr. James Todaro, an Ophthalmology Specialist from Detroit, on Twitter. “One week later we learn the vast majority of cases are still delta. So we stopped an effective therapy for the more severe variant. They REALLY hate early treatment.”

The last 48 hours we hit a record with 27% of our tests coming back positive. 57 people in 2 days who could have been helped by monoclonal antibodies, but since the government has shut off supply, and nothing else is “allowed”, we will just hope they do okay.

The strange push for a now-outdated vaccine while actively suppressing treatments for Covid-19 is getting people killed.
Just look at the insane opposition the media and Democrat Party mounted when Trump promoted Hydroxycloriquin.
The virus was released on purpose and the vaccine is part of some plan we can’t trust.
People have literally died due to being untreated.
Interesting how the feds buy up “treatments” that work then prevent sick people from getting them.
They are trying, like sheep ranchers do, to force people thru a shute where only one “medicine” is available (the jab) and all alternatives are impossible to get.

Because this regime is too incompetent to effectively manage all the disasters they have created.
The goal is pretty clear and follows the same strategy as Democrats have pursued since the epidemic began. Idiot Biden (his manipulators) fear DeSantis’ rising star and his effective handling of the virus, so they want to do all they can to get the death count to try to stain him with the tragedies. So, they undercut his more effective strategy of letting people live their lives and treating the infections with effective treatments, thus supporting herd immunity.
Democrats only want government control over citizen’s lives, even to the point of ending them if it benefits their grip on power.
Imagine a similar situation, what media coverage would be if say Trump were president and he denied ventilators to NY when they needed them.
Vaccinated and Paranoid
Vaccinated and Paranoid
Deuteronomy 3:22, “Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you.”
Karl Marx called religion the “opiate of the masses.” If someone believes in God, they believe that there is a higher power than government, and a higher power than their community. If there is a higher power, then that means tyrants and oligarchies are not the ultimate power, even they have to answer to God. And, since fear is the key component in the playbook for controlling the masses, those who have Faith in God fear not, for they know that God not only protects them, but that if they are snuffed out of their life here on Earth by whatever may serve as a threat, a better life with the Lord awaits them.
Faith causes problems for systems of power and tyranny. If someone has no fear because they place their fears in God’s Hands, how can they be controlled? How can fear be used against the fearless?
This is why the progressive commie left Democrats in the United States, and the globalist commie left internationalists, are doing everything they can to snuff out the Holy Bible. They cannot tolerate a people who are not paranoid about the fears that the modern tyrants are offering. We don’t fear climate change because we know that it’s a natural occurrence that God has under control. We don’t fear COVID because God tells us not to fear the things of the world. He’s our comfort, He’s our protection, and He’s the architect of everything that happens. It all works for His Glory.
Religious Freedom is the natural right that appears first in the First Amendment for a reason. Religious Faith appears first on Alexander Tytler’s Cycle regarding Systems of Liberty for a reason. The Holy Bible is referenced 34% of the time* in the writings and quotations by the Founding Fathers for a reason. As Benjamin Franklin stated, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.” And as George Washington said during his Farewell Speech, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
Without putting the Creator first in prayer and our actions, if our Faith is not the primary force behind everything we do, we are not capable of maintaining a system of liberty.
Psalm 34:4, I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
They need you to be afraid if their solidification of power in America is to work. They need you fearful, and your Faith gets in the way.
Ignorance is alive and well among the paranoid
During the Trump presidency the administration did what it could to preserve religious freedom. Aside from being the first President ever to participate, attend, and speak at a March for Life event, in January of 2020 he wrote an executive order strengthening religious freedoms with the instructions to the executive branch to restrain itself regarding the issue, which included enabling students to pray in school, even if the educational facility receives federal funding (a move consistent with the First Amendment that states that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion). Trump supported religious freedoms and carried out his duties as President of the United States as an ally of Christianity. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s administration has been doing everything it can to undo Trump’s attempt to preserve religious freedoms, and has maintained its opposition to Faith despite the fact that the Republican Party has been demanding the Health and Human Services (HHS) department restore Trump-era religious liberty enforcement measures it revoked last month.
The latest and greatest campaign of fear and paranoia is connected to the Scamdemic (Pandemic), COVID-19, wearing masks, and the Big Pharma arm jabs they dare to call vaccinations.
The fear factor indoctrination has been delivered masterfully. My wife told me about a woman at work beside herself because she was trying to figure out why there were still people standing in opposition against “vaccination.” She talked about safety, protecting the community, and “do these people realize they will die if they don’t get vaccinated?” She then told my wife that the hospitals were overcrowded with the sick as a result of all of the unvaccinated fools out there.
Ignorance is alive and well among the paranoid.
The steps of the government regarding COVID and the vaccines were advertised in a manner that sent the message that the jab was created to prevent transmission.
If that is the case, then why do the vaccinated need to be protected from the unvaccinated? Or worse, how is it that Omicron is infecting the vaccinated more than those who refused the jab (a fact that completely contradicts the notion by the woman at my wife’s place of employment)?
They know the truth is against them. They know they are factually inaccurate. But, the facts don’t matter, only their narrative does
The U.S. Navy, despite their demand for 100% participation in the jab by sailors, has had some serious problems with COVID outbreaks on their ships, the latest case being the USS Milwaukee. A Norwegian Cruise Line reported 17 cases of COVID-19 among passengers and crew members despite their strict vaccination policy requiring that everyone on board be fully vaccinated against the virus. The CDC states that 86 cruise ships with strict vaccination policies have been affected by COVID outbreaks. The NFL was hit with 106 cases, despite their strict vaccine policies and COVID protocols. I was reading somewhere recently that 70% of the people hospitalized with COVID in the United States are vaccinated. In the United Kingdom that percentage is at 60%. Big time, hard left, Hollywood nutcase Alyssa Milano revealed in a Tweet that 90% of her friends have COVID, and then she says they are 100% TRIPLE vaxxed. The idiot meant to use the Tweet to encourage vaccination, not realizing she was actually saying the opposite. I, personally, am not vaxxed, and almost everyone I hang around with are not vaxxed, and I have had maybe two people I know (who were not even in my inner-circle) who got COVID**. But, dummy Alyssa Milano does not realize she is actually proving the importance of trusting our natural immune systems, not some experimental mRNA protein spike genetic messaging jab. And, remember, the COVID Pill was a complete bust, and the evidence is out there that the jab destroys natural immunity.
I have no fear of COVID. First of all, I knew before the latest round of science-folks began figuring out that COVID is minor, especially this latest round, and after this hysteria is all over, COVID will be nothing more than another pesky cold that shows up every once in a while. And, in fact, the OMICRON variant is the weakest of all of the alleged COVID variants.
Isaiah 41:13, For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
They know the truth is against them. They know they are factually inaccurate. But, the facts don’t matter, only their narrative does. That’s why they erase records of vaccine injuries, including ones of two-year old children (why is a two-year old even getting jabbed in the first place?)
Now, there is a rising war on the unvaccinated. Should I not have the right to make my own personal decisions about my own personal health? Does not Liberty include the Freedom to say “NO!”?
Does not Liberty include the Freedom to say “NO!”?
You have the freedom to behave stupidly until your stupid behavior endangers the health and safety of others. At that point, expect push-back.
Yup the vaccinated are running around with mild symptoms infecting those that are not good candidates for the jab. We cant trust the incompetent CDC it took until June 21 to recall tests that were faulty from Dec 20 to March 21 the height of the season, I bet most were already used up by then. Level 1 recall a day late and lots of dollars short.
Gregs all for the Jab rape even if your doctor tells you no.

The monoclonal antibody drugs in question DON’T WORK on the Omicron variant, which represents 95% of all current COVID infections. They were highly effective against the original virus and Delta variant, but are ineffective against Omicron because of mutations that prevent the antibodies from binding with the virus. Antibodies are useless unless they bind to the target virus.
The GlaxoSmithKline/Vir Biotechnology monoclonal antibody drug does still work, but it’s in very short supply. The government contracted for 600,000 doses of this drug back in November 2021, but producing the stuff isn’t quick or easy.
Why do you suppose DeSantis and the Florida Surgeon General are still treating residents with very expensive drugs that have been proven utterly useless? For 5 bonus points, why are they trying to blame Biden because they can’t get MORE of proven useless drugs at federal taxpayers’ expense?
Comrade Greggie, the real question is why do you run from other threads that you have tried to hijack? When you get cornered, you do the very thing that all cowards do, you run off like the scared little rabbit you are.
You have spent almost two years trying to instill fear into the rest of us when, in reality, it is you who is fearful.
Biden is going down and taking his degenerate Party with him.
Actually, if you look at the article at the top of the page, the comment you’re replying to is entirely on topic. I’m disputing the logic—and honesty—of attacking President Biden because he has declined to send Florida additional supplies of monoclonal antibody medications that have become completely ineffective against Omicron variant COVID. Omicron now represents 95% of all cases.
So yeah…let’s talk about useless jabs—or infusions, since this very expensive but now unhelpful medication can only be given by IV drip.
I could be much less polite, which I am certain you would prefer, but I consider factual information to be the most effective sort of argument.
Fact the Jab is totally ineffective against omicron
What study did they bring forth saying the antibodies were not effective?
The new variant hasnt been in our population long enough for any meaningful study to be done.
Dec 1st the first case in USA was reported.
You are totally gullible.
The Canada Truck protest is at 58,700 at last count from 1 direction into Ottawa, Turdeau has suddenly needed to quarantine himself. Canada wants every right back just like other countries are being forced to do, UK, Denmark, Austria, others will soon follow.
I hope the voters in Florida remember when idiot Biden wanted them to die just to poke DeSantis in the eye.
So, if it doesn’t work against the current variants, it shouldn’t be used?
