President Biden is urging Americans to pick up the pace and get vaccinated. The push comes with just over two weeks to go before the Fourth of July when the administration hoped to see 70% of adults in the nation vaccinated. It also comes as the dangerous and highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus surfaces in 49 states. Michael George has the latest.

  1. This is, in my opinion, is false information. Which virus was first? The Biden administration is as confused as he is. Here is the real threat. This statement is from scientists' studies that say that this Delta virus was the first you choose! Here is the statement:

    SARS-CoV-2 , also known as , is a variant of lineage B.1.617 of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It was first detected in India in late 2020. The World Health Organization (WHO) named it the Delta variant on 31 May 2021.

  2. "Pick up the pace and get vaccinated"
    Translation: they're not falling for the con so we need to turn up the fear factor.

  3. Psalms 44:1-26
    [1](To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil.) We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
    [2]How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
    [3]For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
    [4]Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
    [5]Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
    [6]For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
    [7]But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
    [8]In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
    [9]But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.
    [10]Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
    [11]Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.
    [12]Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by their price.
    [13]Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
    [14]Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
    [15]My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
    [16]For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
    [17]All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
    [18]Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;
    [19]Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
    [20]If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
    [21]Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
    [22]Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
    [23]Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.
    [24]Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
    [25]For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
    [26]Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.

  4. Why not figure out who has Covid aquired immunity from previous infections and focus on the ones who don't???

  5. Hey xi obama bin biden, take the cognitive exam that President Trump took and passed with flying colors.

  6. Biden is an IDIOT! Biden Declares Gay Nightclub a National Memorial. Might as well make everything a national memorial and tear down all previous hero monuments. This country is becoming laughable folks. Worse than ever before.

  7. The vaccine dont protect you from the delta variant!!! 10 percent of the British population infected with the delta variant were fully vaccinated!! The media is lying we need to wait for a specific vaccine for the delta variant.

  8. Thank you Biden, with Sezgin Baran Korkmaz, I am Turkish… New America, new worlds💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞

  9. What a coincidence that there is the "deadly Delta Variant" they can use as propaganda and a fear tactic to scare the gullible into injecting themselves with an experimental "vaccine" for an illness that has an overall 99.7% recovery rate! 🙄

  10. “The most different coronavirus variant is only 0.3% different from the original sequence as emailed out of Wuhan in … January 2020. 0.3% [is] the one [variant] that is the most different on the planet so far. And now another way of saying it is, ‘all of the variants are not less than 99.7% identical to each other.’ “Now, you might be thinking, ‘hmm, 0.3%, is that enough [to escape immunity and become more dangerous]?’ The answer is NO. Getaway, ya know, get out of here … — Dr. Michael Yeadon, Pfizer's former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory who spent 32 years in the industry-leading new medicines research and retired from the pharmaceutical giant with “the most senior research position” in his field.

  11. u know they meant serious business when they start using scary words like "delta". the next word will be "super saiyan level 4" variant 😱
