vaccine mandate


(RepublicanWire.org) – Joe Biden would love nothing more than to bind the hands of all those refusing to get the vaccine and following his illegal mandate. He wants people in the dark and unable to fight back against his insane policies. But some are fighting back and providing a way for the ordinary person to report to authorities those businesses in Texas that would still seek to force people to get the vaccine.

Governor Greg Abbott saw to make the mandatory vaccination of employees illegal in Texas. Biden cannot reach into the state and force people to do something that violates their constitutional rights.

People now have a hotline to report any employer threatening workers with their jobs if they fail to comply with any vaccine mandate. Texas law prohibits any entity from mandating people to vaccinate with the COVID-19 drug. The Lone Star State will resist the illegal laws coming out of Biden’s office every time he issues one.

Governor Abbott stated that “We have now created a hotline for Texas employees to report illegal vaccine mandates. The COVID-19 vaccine will always be voluntary & never forced in Texas.”

Biden’s approach to getting people to vaccinate has taken the choice away from them. And every time a person is told they do not have a choice, they will fight back because a choice is what makes America great. People have a choice, and if Biden worked with that fact, he would be able to get more people to vaccinate than he ever could by forcing them to do it.

The new hotline will let people report any place violating the law. Any person found forcing another vaccinate will be in for a world of trouble by law enforcement.

And to help employers understand the law, Abbott issued a letter detailing what the law was in Texas. His letter reported that “My Executive Order clearly states that no employer can mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for an employee with a religious, personal, or medical exemption. We have now created a hotline for employees to report illegal vaccine mandates in Texas. While I encourage Texans to get the COVID-19 vaccine, it will always be voluntary, and never forced, in Texas, and we are committed to ensuring Texans’ livelihoods are not jeopardized by federal overreach.”

The Democratic Party is all about control. They think they can make laws and issue orders that violate the Constitution. But the third part of the government makeup can stop it by interpreting the Constitution. The Judicial Branch is another hurdle that keeps the Democrats from running away with the country. But Biden would love to pack the court to nullify its Constitutional powers.

The message that Abbott is sending to Biden is that the states will not sit around and let the federal government walk all over them without a fight. Any person or entity that is violating the law will be prosecuted. They will have to answer for their criminal activity. Each business is also to honor exemptions and issue them without reservation.

And yet, there will be those instances where the business or organization is going to try and push the line by mandating the illegal vaccine. But they are going to find out that the law of America still exists, and the enforcement of the law is still around.

The Democrats may have tried to unseat law enforcement but failed. No system in the world is fairer and just than the legal system in the United States. People are innocent until proven guilty in court. In other places around the world, the person is guilty and never allowed to present their side of the case. They are abused and tortured for their crimes.

The America that Biden wants to build back mirrors those countries that abuse their people. But as long as there is freedom in America, there will always be a way to fight the injustices put in place by Joe Biden.

Normally, CNBC host Jim Kramer jumps up and down and screams about stock prices. But on Monday, he did something a little different: he suggested that Americans be rounded up and forced to et the COVID jab. According to Kramer, Biden should make the military force Americans to get vaccinated against their will — because apparently, we have reached that stage of madness.

Kramer hosts the network’s “Mad Money” and Americans turn to him for financial advice. However, the new “Omicron” COVID variant gave him a new topic on Monday.

“With the new Omicron variant sweeping the globe, how do we finally put an end to this pandemic? How do we save lives and get business back to normal so everybody can put dinner on the table?” Kramer said on his show. “The federal government needs to require vaccines, including booster shots, for everyone in America by, say, Jan. 1.”

Kramer whined that “our government has lost the ability, or the will, to make our people do the right thing.” Kramer says that  “we haven’t centralized the issue to the point where the White House actually seems to take responsibility” and that instead  “We left vaccination policy to individual companies.”

“It’s just plain wrong, and most of us are sick of it,” Kramer said, before suggesting that Biden fix the issue by having the military round up Americans to force them to get the jab. “It’s time to admit that we have to go to war against COVID. Require vaccination universally. Have the military run it.”

Fortunately, this is not something a President can do on his own. But Congress is littered with Democrats and it’s something that can realistically happen — at least to some degree. The 2022 midterm election may by the most important in our nation’s history. Be sure to get out and vote. Watch the segment below:

While Blue states may be firing cops for refusing to get the COVID jab, Florida is taking a different approach. Trained and experienced cops in New York City and other places are currently making the news for standing strong against vaccine mandates — and getting fired as a result. But Florida governor Ron DeSantis may pay unvaccinated cops $5,000 to relocate to Florida.

On Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” DeSantis announced that he is “actively working” on legislation that would pay bonuses to cops who have been discriminated against because of their vaccination status if they choose to relocate to his state.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis told host Maria Bartiromo, assuring cops facing discrimination that they will be appreciated in Florida:

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

The governor’s comments come amid his escalating conflict with the Biden administration over its impending vaccine mandate, which will require businesses with 100 or more workers to require vaccines or weekly COVID-19 testing.

DeSantis says that the bonuses will be offered to both vaccinated and unvaccinated police who relocate, but that the focus is on doing right by those who haven’t gotten the jab.

“But vaccinated police officers from anywhere in the country would also be welcome here and eligible for the same bonus. They will not be asked to verify their vaccination status as a condition of hiring or employment here,” DeSantis’ office says. “In other states, police officers who are vaccinated are also considering leaving the force due to other challenges, such as the anti-police rhetoric and political threats of defunding law enforcement in certain parts of the country (these tend to be the same areas terminating first responders over vaccine mandates).”

This is a nice change of pace from more liberal areas, which are telling cops that no matter how well they do their job, they will lose it if they don’t succumb to pressure and get the jab.

“Show me your papers” is a phrase you might expect to hear in Communist China or Russia. But it’s happening right now in California, where San Francisco’s Department of Health closed a burger joint for refusing to comply with the state’s vaccine mandate. Right now, residents are forced to show their vaccine papers or be excluded from necessary parts of society like bars, restaurants, or movie theaters.

On Thursday, the city closed an In-N-Out Burger for serving customers who didn’t have the right documentation on them. The company’s chief legal and business officer Arnie Wensinger says in a statement:

“On Thursday, October 14, the San Francisco Department of Public Health closed our restaurant at 333 Jefferson Street because In-N-Out Burger Associates (employees) were not preventing the entry of Customers who were not carrying proper vaccination documentation.

“Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements. After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation.”

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” Wensinger says, calling the city’s attempt to “Seregate customers” through this “unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe” policy.

San Francisco is the first major city to adopt these totalitarian measures intended to shame and torment those who choose to make their own decisions where they and their families’ health are concerned.

Fortunately, this policy has not yet caught on — but with Joe Biden tossing around vaccine and mask mandates and Blue states leaning toward this sort of tyranny, we can expect to see more of it. How many more lives and businesses must be ruined because of the Left’s overreaction to this virus?

Joe Biden used to promise us that there would be no federal-level vaccine mandates. My, my, how times have changed. Recently, the current occupant of the Oval Office announced vaccine mandates for federal employees (but not Congress), as well as workers for any business with more than 100 employees and anyone who puts themselves at risk in the healthcare field. According to Biden, none of those people deserve to make their own decisions about what is right for themselves and their families. But one brave California sheriff is standing up for the men and women in his department. Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco refuses to enforce Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate.

“Over the past couple of weeks, the idea of forced vaccination has caused much concern across the entire country,” Bianco said in a statement on Monday. “I will not enforce the vaccine mandate on Sheriff’s Department employees.”

This is important, as Biden’s tyranny now threatens to strip the freedom to make one’s own healthcare choices from more than 100 million Americans. “The government has no ability and no authority to mandate your health choices,” Bianco, who says he is not anti-vaccine and simply believes that it is a decision you and your doctor should make, correctly points out. “As your sheriff, I have an obligation to guard your liberty and freedom.”

“I am certainly not anti-vaccine. I am anti-vaccine for me. That decision should be made in consultation with your doctor after discussing the potential benefit and the potential negative side effects,” he says. “It is time our government and our politicians come to the realization that the only reason they exist is because “we the people” formed our government to secure the blessings of individual liberty and freedom.”

Last year, Bianco pushed back against California Governor Gavin Newsom’s ridiculous COVID mandates when Newsom threatened to strip funding from counties that refused to uphold his draconian regulations. Now, he continues to stand up for Americans whether they work for his department or not. Biden may think he is a king, but Americans are pushing back — and it’s beautiful.

As we watch Biden roll out nationwide vaccine mandates despite a promise to do no such thing — and individual states like California and New York do the same — it’s easy to feel like our freedoms are being stripped away. Recently, New York rolled out a vaccine mandate pushed by disgraced former governor Andrew Cuomo. But now, a Clinton-appointed judge has blocked New York’s vaccine mandate.

The mandate requires health care workers to get vaccinated or risk being unable to provide for their families — a potential death or death decision, as most vaccines have not even received full FDA approval. People who have religious objections to vaccines, according to the emergency order, are out of luck if they think their faith will be respected. On Monday, 17 healthcare workers, all Christians, fought back and, for now, managed to convince a judge to temporarily block the mandate. ABC News reports:

A federal judge temporarily blocked the state of New York on Tuesday from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of health care workers sued, saying their Constitutional rights were violated because the state’s mandate disallowed religious exemptions.

Judge David Hurd in Utica issued the order after 17 health professionals, including doctors and nurses, claimed in a lawsuit Monday that their rights were violated with a vaccine mandate that disallowed the exemptions.

The judge gave New York state until Sept. 22 to respond to the lawsuit in federal court in Utica.

“The vaccine mandate is suspended,” Judge David Hurd of the US District Court for the Northern District of New York, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, said in his order. He barred the Department of Health from “taking any action, disciplinary or otherwise, against the licensure, certification, residency, admitting privileges or other professional status or qualification of any of the plaintiffs on account of their seeking or having obtained a religious exemption from mandatory Covid-19 vaccination.”

The lawsuit was filed anonymously because the plaintiffs fear they  “run the risk of ostracization, threats of harm, immediate firing and other retaliatory consequences if their names become known.” The objection is based on the fact that every available vaccine uses aborted fetus cell lines in their testing, development, and production.

It’s unclear what will happen in the future. But for now, medical workers in New York have a way out if their faith prohibits them from using these vaccines.

While the matter has yet to be decided in the court system, most Americans say that Biden’s vaccine mandate is unconstitutional — a sentiment that is being ignored by the administration as vaccine tyranny sweeps the nation. Though Americans deserve to make their own decisions for the health of themselves and their families, Biden recently violated his promise of no mandates and did what we all predicted from the beginning. But a new poll shows that this was not a popular move at all.

A Trafalgar poll conducted between 9/10 and 9/12 among nearly 1100 likely general election voters doesn’t look good for Biden. Nearly 60 percent (58.6%) say that Biden does not have the constitutional authority to force private businesses to require employees to get the jab, with only 29.7 percent agreeing that he’s within his rights. Another 11.8 percent say they are not sure. Among Democrats, the affirmative jumps to 54.9 percent. Among Republicans, the “no” answer jumps to a whopping 83.5 percent. Independents also agree that Biden does not have the “constitutional authority” to force employers to make employees get vaccinated, with 68.2 percent saying he does not.

Asked if they support governors pushing back on Biden’s vaccine mandate, 56.1 percent say they support those efforts to defend Americans’ freedom. Democrats, of course, oppose these efforts at a startling rate of 65.7 percent. Republicans overwhelmingly support them, with 78.5 percent on board. Independents support governors who oppose Biden at 62.3 percent.

Many Americans worry that Biden has set a precedent that other presidents in the future can abuse. In fact, 55.5 percent say this is likely the case. Naturally, 54.4 percent of Democrats disagree But 79.5 percent of Republicans are in tune with reality. And 58 percent of Independents agree that this is a terrifying precedent.

Biden’s mandate will dish out $14,000 fines for each person who violates the  Occupational Safety and Health Administration-led mandate of vaccination or weekly testing. Biden once said vaccine mandates are “not the role of the federal government.” You know, except when he decides they are.

Despite Democrats’ claims that vaccine mandates will not become common, we keep seeing more and more that looks like vaccine mandates. First, there was California. State and healthcare workers have been informed that they must get the vaccine or face consequences. The city of Denver has told police officers and other first responders that it is “prepared to fire” anyone who makes the very personal choice not to get the COVID vaccine. Now, Biden’s Pentagon has issues a mandate: active duty troops face a looming vaccine mandate, one which could have far-reaching consequences for anyone who doesn’t comply.

The Associated Press reports that the new plan will go into effect on September 15, leaving little time for objections to this forced vaccination. The plan was announced Monday and has the full backing of Joe Biden. Members of the military are required to get the jab, something that could constitute a refusal to obey and order and make troops subject to punishment under the UCMJ:

Army guidance, for example, includes counseling soldiers to ensure they understand the purpose of the vaccine and the threat the disease poses. The Army also notes that if a soldier “fails to comply with a lawful order to receive a mandatory vaccine, and does not have an approved exemption, a commander may take appropriate disciplinary action.”

Military service officials have said they don’t collect data on the number of troops who have refused other mandated vaccines, such as anthrax, hepatitis, chicken pox or flu shots over the past decade or more. And they weren’t able to provide details on the punishments any service members received as a result of the refusal.

Officials said they believe the number of troops refusing other mandated vaccines is small. And the discipline could vary.

Also, service members can seek an exemption from any vaccine — either temporary or permanent — for a variety of reasons including health issues or religious beliefs. Regulations involving the other mandatory vaccines say, for example, that anyone who had a severe adverse reaction to the vaccine can be exempt, and those who are pregnant or have other conditions can postpone a shot.

Some have argued that those who have already had the virus — and have antibodies — are immune and thus should not have to get the shot. It’s not clear how the military will act on those types of assertions.

“I will seek the president’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon” licensure by the Food and Drug Administration “whichever comes first,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin says in a memo to troops. “I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the President if l feel the need to do so. To defend this Nation, we need a healthy and ready force.”

“Austin’s message to the Force today on the Department of Defense’s plan to add the COVID-19 vaccine to the list of required vaccinations for our service members not later than mid-September,” Biden said in response to the memo, adding that “being vaccinated will enable our service members to stay healthy, to better protect their families, and to ensure that our force is ready to operate anywhere in the world.”

They laughed at us when we warned that vaccine mandates were coming. Now, they’re here — and becoming more and more common.
