Biden says troops should be dishonorably discharged if they disobey order to get Covid vaccine

The White House said Tuesday it ‘strongly opposes’ a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that prohibits the Pentagon from punishing or dishonorably discharging any service member who refuses a vaccine. 

‘The Administration strongly opposes section 716, which would detract from readiness and limit a commander’s options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination,’ the White House Office of Management and Budget said in a statement on the yearly bill that funds the Pentagon. 

‘To enable a uniformed force to fight with discipline, commanders must have the ability to give orders and take appropriate disciplinary measures.’ 

The Pentagon ordered all service members to get vaccinated last month and didn’t rule out court martialing those who don’t. 

More than 800,000 service members out of around 1.4 million still needed to get their shots at the time of the mandate, according to Pentagon data. 

But during the budget bill’s markup under the House Armed Services Committee, an amendment, now section 716, proposed by Rep. Mark Green, R-Tenn., made its way into the bill that prohibited ‘any discharge but honorable’ for vaccine refusal. 

‘I am appalled that the Biden Administration is trying to remove my amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that prevents anything but an honorable discharge for service members who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine,’ Green said in a statement to DailyMail.com. ‘This was a bipartisan amendment — every Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee agreed to it.’ 

Section 716 notes ‘many Americans have reservations about taking a vaccine that has only been available for less than a year.’ 

‘No American who raises their hand to serve our Nation should be punished for making a highly personal medical decision,’ Green said earlier this month.

Republicans have balked at vaccine mandates across the board. 

‘Our readiness, our ability to take on the enemy is being undermined by forcing young people, people who are perfectly healthy, perfectly able to fend off Covid, and are required to have the vaccine,’ Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., told DailyMail.com in an interview.  

The White House also took issue with section 720, which exempts those who previously had a coronavirus infection from needing to take the shot. The bill states that service members can be exempted for ‘administrative, medical, or religious  reasons, including on the basis of possessing an antibody test result demonstrating previous COVID–19 infection.’

The Left Discovers It Loves Evictions as Florida Landlord Challenges DeSantis by Evicting Unvaccinated Tenants

A major Florida landlord has announced it will evict current tenants who do not have proof of vaccination and will refuse to lease to new tenants who have not vaccinated.

If you’re not vaccinated for COVID-19, you can forget about moving into any of eight apartment complexes in Broward and Miami-Dade counties owned by Santiago A. Alvarez and his family.

And if you’re still unvaccinated when it comes time to renew your lease, you’ll have to find someplace else to live.

Alvarez, who controls 1,200 units in the two counties, is the first large-scale landlord known to national housing experts to impose a vaccine requirement not only for employees, but also for tenants. They’ll be required to produce documentation that they’ve received at least an initial vaccine dose.

The policy, which took effect Aug. 15, could set Alvarez’s company on a collision course with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ vaccine passport ban, which prohibits businesses from requiring that customers be vaccinated.

And yet the landlord might have exposed a loophole in the governor’s ban, forcing courts to decide whether a tenant is equivalent to a customer.

Alvarez says he’s not backing down. Signs posted at the leasing offices of his apartment complexes spell out the policy along with the words “Zero Tolerance.”

“We have to be concerned about our tenants and our employees,” Alvarez said in an interview. “All of these are private properties. We’re just trying to keep people safe and healthy. It’s going to cost us money, but we’re very firm on that.”

There is a lot going on here.

First up, the reaction by the left shows that they are immoral and slavishly devoted to polishing Biden’s shoes or whatever. In August, you’ll recall, the Supreme Court shut down the illegal “eviction moratorium” imposed by the CDC. This, we were told, was Armageddon.

Members of Congress, Federal Judges, Staffers Exempt From Vaccine Mandate

On Thursday evening, President Joe Biden unveiled two executive orders that could mandate COVID vaccinations for millions of working Americans in both the public and private spheres. But absent from these mandates are similar requirements for members of Congress, federal judges, or their staffers.

Biden’s executive orders would unilaterally require vaccination for federal employees, the military, and government contractors. The president also asked Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to require that firms with over 100 employees either mandate vaccination or weekly CCP virus tests. In total, these mandates could affect over 100 million American workers, making it one of the widest-reaching vaccine mandates in world history.

Biden wrote, “It is the policy of my Administration to halt the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant, by relying on the best available data and science-based public health measures.”

The order continued, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within the Department of Health and Human Services has determined that the best way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to prevent infection by the Delta variant or other variants is to be vaccinated.”

In the second section, Biden lays out this rigorous policy, requiring all executive agencies to “implement, to the extent consistent with applicable law, a program to require COVID-19 vaccination for all of its Federal employees, with exceptions only as required by law.” Such exemptions are few and strictly defined.

The order would cover civilian employees of executive offices like the State Department and Department of Defense, and would also require all military personnel to receive the vaccine. In total, this no-excuses order would affect millions of civilian and non-civilian federal employees.

The president went beyond this, however, laying out a framework that would require private-sector employers to mandate vaccines or weekly testing for their employees. To achieve this, Biden turned to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a federal agency tasked with ensuring that companies protect the safety of their employees.

Biden Adviser Says Administration Will ‘Run Over’ GOP Governors Who Resist Vaccine Mandates

White House senior adviser Cedric Richmond said President Joe Biden is willing to “run over” any Republican governors who attempt to fight back against federal vaccine mandates.

After Biden unveiled a plan to impose either vaccination or frequent testing on over 80 million workers who are employed at companies that have 100 employees or more, Richmond told CNN that the White House is ready for GOP opposition.

“The one thing I admire about this president is the fact that we are always going to put people above politics. And we’re going to fight for those who really need our help,” Richmond, a former Democrat congressman from Louisiana, said in response to a question about governors resisting the mandate.

“And those governors that stand in the way, I think, it was very clear from the president’s tone today that he will run over them,” he said. “And it is important. It’s not for political purposes. It’s to save the lives of American people. And so, we won’t let one or two individuals stand in the way. We will always err on the side of protecting the American people.”

Richmond’s comment, however, raises questions about how the federal government plans to “run over” states, as the United States government is federalist and combines the central government with state and local governments.

A number of Republican governors on Thursday, following Biden’s speech, said they would resist the vaccine mandate. Should the federal government direct the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to impose testing or vaccine mandates on private employees, Biden will face an avalanche of lawsuits.

Human Rights Champion Reggie Littlejohn Slams Joe Biden over Vaccine Mandates

Reggie Littlejohn, Founder and President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, has censured President Joe Biden for attempting to coerce Americans into receiving a coronavirus vaccine against their will.

Littlejohn, China expert and human rights activist, issued a public response Friday to Biden’s use of “vaccine shaming” and military language to pressure Americans into getting the jab.

“I found Biden’s six-point Covid 19 address to be highly concerning,” Littlejohn writes in a clearly articulated six-point rebuttal.

In the first place, Biden “completely ignores the science” showing that the natural immunity gained by recovery from the coronavirus is far superior to that provided by the vaccines. “How many of the 80 million unvaccinated Americans have already recovered from Covid?” she asks.

Littlejohn also points out the logical fallacies in Biden’s argument. Noting that Biden contends we need to “protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated,” she asks: “If the vaccine works, if it provides protection, then why do the vaccinated need to be protected from the unvaccinated?”

Biden’s disdain for those who do not wish to be vaccinated is also unworthy of his office, Littlejohn asserts, as is his employment of “vaccine shaming.”

Biden’s rhetoric — “I am frustrated with the 80 million Americans who refuse to be vaccinated . . . those blocking public health . . . We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin . . .” is deeply disturbing, she declares, noting that many people “have valid reasons not to be vaccinated and do not deserve to be demonized in this way.”

Littlejohn also finds Biden’s use of military language, such as the deployment of “Surge Response Teams” made up of defense “experts” while doubling the number of “Military Health Teams” highly problematic.

“I thought ‘surge’ strategies were supposed to be deployed by our military against our enemies, not against Americans who have chosen not to be vaccinated,” she declares. “Why does the Defense Department and the military have to be deployed on U.S. soil to ‘help’ people with a virus?”

These expressions “remind me of the Chinese Communist Party’s ‘Strike Hard’ campaigns and ‘Family Planning Police,’” writes Littlejohn, a relentless critic of Beijing’s totalitarian control over its citizens.

Mainstream Media Cares More About You Taking Ivermectin Than Biden Eviscerating Medical Freedom

On Thursday, the United States made a giant leap forward into a despotic and fascist future in which the government owns our bodies and can force us to do whatever they please. Thanks to the massive propaganda campaign waged by the mainstream media, half of Americans likely agree with it.

“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Mein Führer President Joe Biden said on Thursday as he bypassed Congress and unilaterally ordered 100 million Americans to undergo a medical procedure against their will — or become unemployable.

“My job as president is to protect all Americans,” Mr. Biden said Thursday. “So tonight, I’m announcing that the Department of Labor is developing an emergency rule to require all employers with 100 or more employees that together employ over 80 million workers to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week.”

“The bottom line — we’re going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated coworkers,” he said, completely disregarding the fact that natural immunity to the virus is exponentially more effective than the vaccine.

He also completely ignored the Constitution, the Congress, and essentially every single check and balance the government has ostensibly set up to prevent tyrants like him from making such broad and overreaching dictates.

It’s no wonder that #IwillNOTComply and #MassNonCompliance began trending immediately after the dictator on high delivered this chilling speech. In fact, they continued to trend into Friday morning highlighting the mass resistance to such tyrannical madness and the terrifying precedent that it sets.

Simply put, individuals own their bodies and have rights over them — including what they choose to eat, inject, or otherwise consume — that other individuals, groups, and governments may not violate. Biden’s mandate violates this most sacred of rights and it must be resisted en masse.

Victoria, Australia will ‘LOCK OUT’ unvaccinated people from its economy

The Australian state of Victoria will “lock out” unvaccinated people from participating in the economy, Premier Dan Andrews has announced.

Victoria is currently under draconian lockdown restrictions, with residents of Melbourne – who make up the vast majority of the state’s population – living under a 9pm to 5am curfew, forbidden from leaving their homes except to work, buy groceries, or get a Covid-19 vaccination. When the lockdown is lifted, Premier Dan Andrews said on Sunday, future restrictions will apply only to those who are unvaccinated.

Rutgers Uni Student Banned From Taking Online Virtual Classes Because He’s Unvaccinated

A student at Rutgers University was banned from taking online virtual classes because he’s unvaccinated, despite the fact that he was willing to stay off campus completely.

Yes, really.

After transferring to the university last year, psychology major Logan Hollar signed up for all online virtual classes for this school year.

Hollar explained why he chose not to take the coronavirus vaccine.

“I’m not in an at-risk age group. I’m healthy and I work out. I don’t find COVID to be scary,” said the 22-year-old. “If someone wants to be vaccinated, that’s fine with me, but I don’t think they should be pushed.”

However, when he went to pay for his online course late last month, Hollar discovered that he had been locked out of his Rutgers email and related accounts.

When the student asked campus authorities why he had been frozen out, he was told the vaccine was mandatory even for those taking virtual classes.

Apparently, COVID-19 is so potent that it can be transmitted over wi-fi.

Despite the university claiming it offered vaccine waivers and exemptions, Hollar’s attempts to secure one were unsuccessful.

Rutgers spokeswoman Dory Devlin emphasized that students need to comply with the vaccine mandate to take courses, commenting, “We continue to work with students who have not yet uploaded their documentation so they can gain access to university systems and classes.”

Hollar now says that he will probably have to transfer to a different university, having already missed several classes.

“I find it concerning for the vaccine to be pushed by the university rather than my doctor,” he said. “I’ll probably have to transfer to a different university.”

“I don’t care if I have access to campus. I don’t need to be there. They could ban me. I just want to be left alone,” added Hollar.

Dr. Fauci now pushing for COVID-19 vaccine mandate for children to attend school: ‘A good idea’

As the nation debates whether children should be forced to wear face masks at school, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now advocating for COVID-19 vaccination to be a condition of attending school.

Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” the COVID-19 vaccine should be added to the list of vaccines that most schools require students to have before admission.

“I believe that mandating vaccines for children to appear in school is a good idea,” Fauci said.

“This is not something new. We have mandates in many places in schools, particularly public schools, that if, in fact, you want a child to come in, we have done this for decades and decades, requiring polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis,” he continued. “So this would not be something new, requiring vaccinations for children to come to school.”
