We know Joe Biden is known for plagiarism, which is using someone else’s work and actively or passively claiming it to be your own. Biden plagiarized in school and later as a politician said it was not malevolent. As if that makes it okay. He also plagiarized a speech made by a British politician and fortunately for him said a British politician is a bonehead who said “Joe’s an honest guy,” and followed up with “If Trump had done it, I would know that he was lying.” Again, the Biden camp said it was unintentional or Joe forgot to give credit to the Brit, even though no one has ever done so in how Biden plagiarized his words. Biden made Neil Kinnock’s words personal to his own life, and no one would give credit in a scenario like that, because doing so would have invalidated Biden’s lies.
First, Joe Biden is not an honest guy by any stretch of the imagination, and second, had Trump “accidentally” plagiarized someone’s speech, he would have acknowledged it and apologized profusely. How could the moronic British politician have known how Trump would have reacted when Trump never plagiarized anyone?
Dr. Moncef Slaoui, who was a chief scientific adviser to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed panel, has said that 90 percent of President Joe Biden’s vaccine rollout plan is the same plan as the previous administration’s to vaccinating US citizens against coronavirus. Biden is apparently taking credit for someone else’s work yet again.
During an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” host Margaret Brenna brought up allegations made by Biden, who said the Trump administration didn’t secure enough vaccine doses when he took office. In reality, Trump had ordered about 800 million doses enough to vaccinate about 450 million people given that some would require double doses. And remember, we only have about 328 million people.
“Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor — as my mother would say, ‘God love him’ — failed to order enough vaccines, failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots, failed to set up vaccine centers,” Biden said on Feb. 21. “That changed the moment we took office.”
Slaoui responded to Biden’s assertions, “I think that’s a very negative description of the reality. I do think that we had plans, and in fact, 90% of what’s happening now is the plan that we had.
“Of course the first thing was to accelerate the development of the vaccine,” Slaoui said. “We contracted specifically 100 million doses of vaccine, but also built into the contract options to acquire more vaccines once we knew they are effective. And the plan was to order more vaccines when- when we knew they are more effective. So I think what’s happening is right. But I think what’s happening is, frankly, what was the plan. Substantially what was the plan.”
Like any other manufacturing operation as you work through the models being used to manufacture something, over time you work out the kinks in the system and improve the efficiency of the effort. This happens with any manufacturing including building cars, furniture, and yes, vaccines.

Slaoui noted that the Trump administration didn’t plan on using sports arenas as vaccination sites and hadn’t discussed using the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as part of their vaccine distribution strategy. Well, whoopty flipping Ding! The Biden people came up with someone unique, but that doesn’t give the Biden administration license to lie about the previous administration’s achievements. How petty do Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have to be to refuse to give Donald Trump and his administration any credit for their efforts to bring three and very soon four coronavirus vaccinations to market in under a year?
Slaoui did point out however that Operation Warp Speed laid out the vital groundwork to use health care centers and pharmacies, which he said is where “the bulk of vaccine distribution is happening.” In other words, by using a capitalist system already in place at places like CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens pharmacies that already do vaccinations and flu shots, etc., there was no need to push for large arenas to do mass vaccinations which is what communist politician systems would probably come up with.
Slaoui mentioned the Trump administration had an original plan of having “most of adult Americans over the age of 18 that want to be vaccinated will have been vaccinated” by June.
In December, which correct me if I’m wrong came before the Biden administration became a thing, Slaoui told the Washington Post, “Hopefully by the middle of the year, I hope most Americans will have been immunized, which means the level of hesitancy that exists currently will have been decreased because people will have learned more information … about the vaccine.” He added that the Trump administration “should have this pandemic under control in the second half of 2021.”
Another lie to buy new ministration went around with was that during the transition the trump people were not cooperating with the Biden transition team. Vice President Kamala Harris lied when she told a reporter that the Biden administration had to start from scratch because the Trump administration left them empty-handed, and if we had an honest news media, the reporters would have countered by asking then how were there over 30 million Americans vaccinated by the day Joe Biden was inaugurated. The Trump administration was already underway to reach Biden’s goal of 100 million Americans vaccinated in his first 100 days. The Biden administration has since squandered that hard work done by the previous administration.
Slaoui, who previously ran the GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine division, acknowledged that the Trump administration was in negotiations with Merck to use their facilities for “pandemic purposes.”
Brennan never acknowledged the achievements Slaoui mentioned but instead asked if there were any flaws in Operation Warp Speed.
“I think there were two areas for me that are key lessons to learn in terms of how things should have been done differently,” he replied. “One is on the communication, and I think we have failed to communicate the fact that vaccine doses availability is going to be, you know, slowly over time because- because we went so fast. There is no stock of vaccines. It was impossible to have enough vaccine doses quickly enough compared to the expectations. So we were unable, as we communicated in the month of November and December and January, to-to manage the expectation.”
“And I think the second thing is indeed, in the actual immunization, the approach taken was a philosophical approach that was frankly part of what the previous administration philosophy is, which is the federal government is going to provide vaccine,” he continued. “The states should be accountable for actually immunizing. And that’s- that’s the principle on which we have worked. Clearly, there was a need for the states to actually learn, which they did in reality. And that’s how improvements are happening now and also for the central government to participate in that learning process and accelerate it.”
Slaoui said the politicization of the coronavirus pandemic and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout has been a “big mistake” by some.
“I do believe that it’s a mistake to politicize a health issue. It’s a big mistake,” Slaoui said. “Many people probably have died or suffered because the whole situation became so political that, you know, emotions overtook rationality.”
“I’m very concerned, very concerned that for political motivation, people decide to actually place themselves and the people around them in harms’ way by refusing to be vaccinated,” he added. “I think- I think we need to do every effort we can to explain to people that vaccines have nothing to do with politics. These vaccines are safe. They are highly effective. They’re going to help them protect themselves and protect the people around them from the spread of this virus and critically from the potential appearance of new variants.”
