The CDC uses discredited, inapplicable authority to back its new mask guidelines
By Andrea Widburg
This will not be an anti-vaccine post. It will, however, be an attack against the CDC for using discredited and inapplicable authority to justify its latest mask and vaccine guidelines and for ignoring credible opposing authority. I'll also take a stab at answering why all this craziness is coming from the Biden administration. I've got two theories (one of which I discredit), so stick around for them.
First, the Biden administration, having said all Veterans' Affairs employees must be vaccinated, will soon announce that all federal employees must be vaccinated or lose their jobs; that children should wear masks all day in school; and that everyone else should wear masks, too, whether they're vaccinated or not. All those orders and guidelines are ludicrous, and they're ludicrous for multiple reasons.
In December, Biden promised there would be no mask or vaccine mandates. And keep in mind that he has no legal authority to make such a mandate national in any event. However, he does have authority over the administrative state, and the federal government is the largest single employer in America. This will affect a lot of people.
I've already discussed here why the new guidelines for children, coming as they do from the American Academy of Pediatrics, are complete garbage. In addition, Tucker Carlson's people checked the data about children dying from the virus and found that the CDC's own data contradict it, although CDC head Walensky went ahead and lied anyway:
