Trump Admin Kicks off Operation Warp Speed to Manufacture Vaccine Before End of Year

Mark Esper has made a promise that could potentially live in infamy. He’s the United States defense secretary and this promise is as big as they come. Operation Warp Speed is here and it is headed up by Dr. Moncef Slaoui, a pharmaceutical executive. The operation’s objective is a simple one: to have a viable COVID-19 vaccine in the hands of all Americans by year’s end.

While some professionals have suggested that a vaccine could be made available by the end of 2020 for emergency usage purposes, this is the first time that anyone has been willing to make this sort of promise. Dr. Rick Bright was once the head of the top vaccine agency for the federal government.

He has been warning about the 12 to 18-month timeline that is being bandied about. It could lead to some very unrealistic expectations. This timeline does not cover all of the steps that are supposed to take place once the human clinical trials are completed. FDA authorization would still need to take place.

It would also take time for the vaccine to be prepared for release to the general public. We hope that Esper is right, for the sake of the population. However, we would be remiss if we did not mention the lack of feasibility here. Everyone would be thrilled if they were able to achieve this goal but people should not be planning their lives around it.

There is a wide range of competing vaccines in the process of being tested now. No one is sure which of them will become the new vaccine that we rely upon at the moment. There is simply too much that needs to be done at the moment. To the best of our knowledge, there are at least four vaccines competing to make their way into American hands first.

The experts who have been insisting on the 12 to 18-month timeline are going to be left holding the bag when this deadlines comes and goes. By the time next summer rolls around, people are going to be looking to the experts (like Dr. Anthony Fauci) who have been preaching about the aforementioned timeline. For the sake of the nation, we hope that these people are right.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has to be praying for any vaccine that he can find. His chances of being re-elected are not being endangered by the candidate that the Democrats have trotted out. No one is worried that he is going to lose votes to a senile (alleged) rapist. Instead, he may simply lose votes to the silent enemy that he cannot contain.

In his world, it would probably be best if we had access to a vaccine by the time Election Day rolls around. If Operation Warp Speed can have a vaccine in everyone’s hands by the time this calendar year is complete, that does not help the current president all that much. He would be a lame duck by this point in time.

At the very least, Trump is hoping to have some positive information to provide to the voters before November. On the other hand, political pressure and scientific advancements do not exactly go hand in hand. We worry that Trump will allow his current predicament to dictate his decision making in a way that is going to be uncomfortable for the rest of us.

Of course, there are those who want the United States to beat China to the punch. They are in the process of developing their own vaccine. If they are able to unveil a finished product before the US can, they will be able to rub our noses in it. Communist backers are going to claim that this is another defeat for capitalism and quite frankly, we would not be looking forward to that.

This may also cause a higher level of antagonism between the Chinese and the United States. Would we even be willing to ask the Chinese for access to the vaccine that they have developed? While a Democratic president might not have any issues with such a request, a Republican could free differently. It’s a quandary that we hope we never have to experience.

Trump’s desperation for a full reopen is the elephant in the room at the moment. He wants to reopen everything, whether we have access to a vaccine or not. This does not seem wise but what do we know? Dr. Moncef Slaoui claims to be confident about the development of a vaccine before the year is over and for his sake, we hope that he is right. Otherwise, he is going to be in for a rude awakening once people remember his initial promise.

      translates as (the handle) “acohol wet tissue” from the Thai language
      The one before it, same time/date- handle means “gaslamp” (like we Americans are being gaslighted?”
      any reason to think that Thais have an interest in this….maybe since their largest exporter is the Chinese
      As for operation warp speed….we’ll see if it can happen that fast. The reason that vaccines take so long to develop is that it can take years to get through the safety testing, if you once confirm that it is effective. Vaccines can be very bad for you, if testing is incomplete or inadequately conducted.

      Would be very interested in seeing the vaccine development strategy .

  1. That is exactly what Fauci and Bill Gates want. I’d be very leery of taking any vaccine. I night prefer to take my chances with the virus.

  2. I have this occurring nightmare that all our school children would have to have this vaccine before they attend school again.
    That means between the age of 6-18 students would all have to be vaccinated before they would be allowed back in the Classroom.
    No vaccine means no school . The problem is that seeing how many scholars are wanting to reduce world population that Certain biological properties could possibly cause sterility in our countries children.
    How better way to reduce the world population while also making sure the USA is not A threat to the world government body that is desired by the elite in the very near future.
    Seems cynical but really our government should be real careful on who makes and distributes this vaccine.
    My thought is Trump is smart and probably all ready thought of that lets Hope!
    We Americans have enemies and the whole world is now suffering because of one virus.

  3. EVEN CERTAIN DRUGS THAT PASS ALL THE POLITICAL REDTAPE OF TESTS,AFTER 20 YEARS ARE PROVEN TO CAUSE CANCER,SO WHAT THE HELL WAS ACCOMPLISHED????IF YOURE DYING ,THE RIGHT TO TRY SHOULD APPLY- SCREW THE RED TAPE TESTS,THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH OPTIMISM,BUT IT SHOULD BE PRESENTED AS SUCH,NOT A PROMISE. YOU HAVE TOO MANY TURKEYS IN TODAYS SOCIETY THAT TAKE EVERYTHING AS IF WRITTEN IN STONE,THE ABILITY OF PEOPLE TO THINK FOR THEMESELVES HAS ALL BUT BEEN ERADICATED BY INDOCTRINATION AND PC BS.

  4. For 59 years I have been into the study of health,,,and as a healthy 86 year old have no fear of any virus. However, I DO FEAR MANDATED VACCINES knowing that ALL vaccines have side effects. If side effects don’t show up immediately they will show up later on in life in the form of cancer or other diseases. One’s immune system is not enhanced with vaccines. If people could read the literature which doctors get, when they receive vaccines; I doubt if they would want them. Having had all the childhood diseases, I received lifelong immunity from the diseases, for which children are getting vaccinated today, . The vaccinations they receive give them a much shorter window of immunity; in many cases they become “shedders” and spread disease. THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID ILLNESS…AND BUILD NATURAL IMMUNITY. EAT RIGHT AND LIVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.
