How fortuitous, less than a week after the presidential election Pfizer publicly announces what Trump had promised and been mocked for over the last several weeks. They must have received some extraordinarily results in the testing process of the last few days. No way the $200b+ market cap company had an inkling this was coming a week ago. No way.

The markets ejaculate. The stage is set to wind Covid down over the next couple of months so it’ll be morning in America when Biden is inaugurated.

Don’t jeer too hard, progressives. The Establishment is shutting you out, too. There will be no Medicare-for-all, but there will be plenty more bazillion dollar days like this for Big Pharma.

    It’s magic. Biden “wins” the presidency and suddenly there is a highly efficacious coronavirus vaccine within days, just like the economy has experienced a miraculous recovery on the news that Biden is the winner.

  3. Actually, the vaccine will still have to go through months of testing, just as the Russian vaccine is undergoing at the moment. So there will be no quick results.
    I suspect that Pfizer were under pressure to get this out as quickly as they could, especially as their Russian rival has a head start. I think commercial pressure was more important than political expediency. Also, it would be highly embarrassing for Western Pharma companies if a Russian product was sweeping up the market. Only recently, we were being told that Russia hardly had a Pharma industry at all.
    Whether either vaccine will be effective is another matter. As someone “at risk”, I’m offered Flu vaccines every winter, but they’re only ( relatively) effective for a short period and for the particular strains of Flu. As the virus mutates, new vaccines have to be developed.

    Yikes. I commented too soon. I had a look at Steve Sailer: it looks like his FDA underlings knifed Trump in the back. Further evidence, if needed, that Trump was in office, but not in power.

    The British NHS is gearing up for a mass vaccination campaign, probably starting before Christmas, using the Pfizer vaccine. When I read this on Friday I was half asleep, if I’d had my wits about me I’d have invested heavily in aerospace/holidays/leisure.

    But it was signalled as far back as election day.

    A new DES is set to be announced imminently for practices and PCNs to start administering a Covid vaccine from the beginning of December, Pulse understands.

    Practices and PCNs will be asked to prepare to give the vaccine to over-85s and front line workers from the start of December, numerous sources have confirmed to Pulse.

    There are currently two vaccines that are being prepared, with one requiring two shots and needing to be kept at minus 70 degrees.

    Alongside GPs and PCNs, there will be teams delivering it to care homes, and at-scale delivery centres.

    Pulse understands there will be sufficient resources allocated to practices via the DES.

    A number of sources have confirmed to Pulse that an announcement around the DES is imminent, potentially by next week.

    It has now been confirmed to Pulse by numerous sources that GPs and the whole of the NHS are going to be put on standby to start vaccinating over-85s and frontline workers from early December.

    It remains unclear exactly which vaccines will be administered, but Pfizer’s vaccine in development has to be kept at minus 70 degrees, while the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine was shown to be more effective when administered in two doses.

    Then Trump failed.

    Trump was the president. Trump had four years to take control—four years!—but did not do it.

    Trump destroyed good patriots like Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions readily enough. After such bumbling, Trump deserved to get knifed in the back.

    Unfortunately, Trump’s voters did not deserve to get knifed in the back, and that’s ultimately what happened, isn’t it? Given how Trump promised us that we would win and win and win until we were tired of winning, I blame Trump for getting us knifed.

    Yeah, me too. Trump had only one job to do. Take on and defeat the Permanent Bureaucracy, the intelligence agencies, all major media, academia, all of big tech, globalist corporations, the Pentagon, Western Europe and their intel agencies, his own perfidious GOP, establishment conservatism, et al. That’s all he needed to do and he didn’t. I mean, if you’re not willing to do the heavy lifting then let someone more capable do the job. I’m sure the life-long politician Jeff Sessions could’ve fixed things!

    Sometimes things have to get better before they can get worse and then get better again.

  10. @V. K. Ovelund

    Trump was opposed not only by the Deep State, the Oligarchs, the Democrats, but also his own party. The only way he could have got much of his programme through Congress is if a Trump Party controlled Congress. They didn’t .
    What the President could do in those circumstances was very strictly limited. It would have helped if Trump had been much more politically and legally aware, as Paul Craig Roberts has said. Many of his appointees were poor, some downright bad, that is admitted. However, at least they gave him some protection – he has not been assassinated, impeached or deposed – yet.
    The Republican Party is irreformable . You need a new party or parties to promote and preserve the interests of White Americans. That is the correct inference from the Trump Presidency.

    Thanks for keeping me informed. I have a niece who is a medical doctor. She assured me it would take months of testing. She doesn’t read the trade news, as she puts it. She was as surprised as I was when I told her.
    Will they beat the Russians, though? It will be interesting to find out.

    The AstraZenica/Oxford virus gave a woman transverse myelitis, which seems to be a low numbers but not zero side effect of a few vaccines. So Pfizer’s out in front.

    He has been impeached. As was Clinton. He wasn’t removed because he wasn’t convicted.

  15. @TomSchmidt

    True. Impeachment has occurred a number of times. No convictions. That’s really not the aim. It’s to get the President to resign, as in the case of Nixon.

  16. @V. K. Ovelund

    “Trump destroyed good patriots like Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions readily enough.”

    Jeff Sessions was a weak man who wouldn’t take control of the justice department he was supposed to be in charge of as they worked to destroy Trump. Trump called Sessions out publicly on twitter countless times and Sessions would not get the message. Trump went to the mat to put a loyal guy in as attorney general and then justice went straight at Trump like a rabid animal while Sessions stood there, worthless, for two whole years.

    Steve Bannon clashed hard with Ivanka and Jared Kusher. But Ivanka and Jared are Trump’s own family. Bannon acting like, “It’s either me or them” was moronic. Trump is a family guy after all.

    “After such bumbling, Trump deserved to get knifed in the back.”

    No he didn’t. He wasn’t perfect, but he fought harder for America than anyone else will in our lifetimes I think. Never stopping through his brother’s death and getting COVID. Five megarallies per day in the end. Even one is exhausting. That level of effort will never be seen again. He left it all on the field.

    Doesn’t matter. This is just a necessary step in the process of ending the covid panic by inauguration day.

    The whole idea here is to merely set the stage for elected democrats to start rolling it all back over the next couple of months . Covid was only useful to the democrats while Trump was in power. Now that he’s about to be gone, they can’t afford for all of the nonsense – closings, masks, canceled holidays – to keep going on and be blamed on Biden instead of Trump. The people need to be happy under their newly elected leader. Remember there’s an election in two years and the democrats want to win it.

    New York and California and all the other blue states are going to start lifting restrictions and by next summer, the US economy will be roaring and Biden will be able to take credit for it even though it’s just the natural response to the end of the restrictions.

    What the dems want is to avoid losing the house in 2022 and maybe just maybe get the senate back. That’s more likely to happen if the people aren’t still pissed about covid theater, so covid is about to be gonzo now that Biden seems to have won.

    This was already all so predictable 6-7 months ago.

    Loyalty is the virtue I admire most. You are a good man, sir.

    In my opinion, Donald J. Trump does not deserve you.
