Inside the US’s new “bio-defense strategy”, by Michael Bryant

There are some government documents that are well worth paying attention to. From Michael Bryant at off-guardian.org:

The Biden administration recently released its 2022 National Biodefense Strategy in response to “a need to prepare for future pandemics and biological threats.”

Building on its September Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing, the Biden administration  maintains that this latest program – what it calls ‘Biodefense’ – will be based upon the “lessons learned from the ongoing COVID- 19 pandemic.”

The opening paragraph of the plan states:

Today, the Biden-Harris Administration fulfills a commitment that President Biden made on his first day in office: to review existing national biopreparedness policies and develop recommendations for how the Federal Government should update them, based on lessons learned from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other biological threats our Nation faces.”

It seems the President forgot that just a month earlier on 60 Minutes he plainly declared the pandemic was over. He also seems to be ignoring the fact that there are profound disagreements on what lessons were actually learned from the raft of disastrous COVID-19 policies enacted over the past two and a half years.

This becomes deeply problematic when these same disastrous COVID-19 policies become the template for both domestic and foreign policy over the next 5 years, or more, if the Biden administration and their sponsors have their way.

Putting aside the rather important question as to how it is we arrived at the point where democratic processes have been thrown into the dustbin, replaced by Executive Orders and presidential fiats, we need to understand/examine the particulars of this latest decree being sold as a ‘pandemic preparedness plan’ and the resulting landscape if implemented.
