September 9, 2021, in a sweeping government order,1 president Joe Biden mandated all U.S. corporations with 100 or extra staff to require COVID vaccination or weekly testing, or face federal fines of as much as $14,000 per violation. Biden additionally ordered companies to present time without work to staff to obtain the injections.
Biden can also be requiring all federal staff and federal contractors to get the pictures. For unspecified causes, postal employees and members of Congress and their workers are exempt from the vaccine mandate. Biden didn’t make any exceptions for individuals who’ve already had COVID and recovered, and subsequently have antibodies to the virus.
He additionally mentioned he’d use his “energy as president” towards any governor unwilling to comply with the order “to get them out of the way in which.”2 Biden could also be biting off greater than he can chew, nonetheless, as a result of as of September 11, 2021, 28 states have been already pushing again towards federal vaccine mandates.3
Many States Vow to Battle Again Unconstitutional Mandate
The backlash was swift. The Republican Nationwide Committee rapidly introduced they’d sue the Biden administration for issuing an “unconstitutional mandate.” GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel issued a press release:4
“Joe Biden instructed People when he was elected that he wouldn’t impose vaccine mandates. He lied. Now small companies, employees, and households throughout the nation pays the worth.
Like many People, I’m pro-vaccine and anti-mandate. Many small companies and employees would not have the cash or authorized assets to struggle Biden’s unconstitutional actions and authoritarian decrees, however when his decree goes into impact, the RNC will sue the administration to guard People and their liberties.”
Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse instructed the Each day Caller:5
“President Biden is so determined to distract from his shameful, incompetent Afghanistan exit that he’s saying loopy issues and pushing constitutionally flawed government orders.
This can be a cynical try to select a struggle and distract from the President’s morally disgraceful resolution to depart People behind Taliban strains on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11. This isn’t the way you beat COVID, however it’s the way you run a distraction marketing campaign — it’s gross and the American individuals shouldn’t fall for it.”
In a sequence of tweets, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem said:6,7
“South Dakota will stand as much as defend freedom @JoeBiden see you in courtroom,” and “My authorized crew is standing by able to file our lawsuit the minute Joe Biden information his unconstitutional rule. This gross instance of federal intrusion won’t stand.”
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp additionally issued a press release saying he intends to “pursue each authorized possibility obtainable” to halt Biden’s “blatantly illegal overreach,” as did Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who in a tweet said:8
“That is precisely the sort of large authorities overreach now we have tried so exhausting to stop in Arizona — now the Biden-Harris administration is hammering down on personal companies and particular person freedoms in an unprecedented and harmful method. This may by no means arise in courtroom.
This dictatorial method is mistaken, un-American and can do way more hurt than good. What number of employees might be displaced? What number of youngsters stored out of school rooms? What number of companies fined? The vaccine is and ought to be a alternative. We should and can push again.”
Florida Governments Face Fines if Following Biden’s Order
In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis countered Biden’s edict with one in every of his personal. Any native authorities that makes COVID vaccination a requirement for employment might be fined $5,000 per violation.9 Throughout a September 13, 2021, press convention, DeSantis mentioned:
“We’re gonna stand for the women and men who’re serving us. We’re going to shield Florida jobs. We aren’t gonna to let individuals be fired due to a vaccine mandate.
You do not simply solid apart individuals who have been serving faithfully over this concern, over what’s mainly a private alternative on their particular person well being. We can not let these people be solid apart. We can not enable their jobs to be destroyed.”
I used to be going to incorporate DeSantis’ speech on this article, but it surely has since been deleted for “violating YouTube’s neighborhood tips.” Think about that, that they’d truly take away a legally elected governor’s opinion on this matter as a result of it violates their authoritarian tyranny.
Biden Is Clearly Out of Authorized Bounds
Biden’s government order is unlikely to face up in courtroom, seeing how federal regulation prohibits the mandating of emergency use merchandise, which by definition are experimental. As famous in a Might 2021 report by The Defender:10
“The underside line is that this: mandating merchandise licensed for Emergency Use Authorization standing (EUA) violates federal regulation as detailed within the following authorized notifications.11
All COVID vaccines, COVID PCR and antigen assessments, and masks are merely EUA-authorized, not authorised or licensed, by the federal authorities. Lengthy-term security and efficacy haven’t been confirmed.
EUA merchandise are by definition experimental, which requires individuals be given the best to refuse them. Below the Nuremberg Code, the inspiration of moral drugs, nobody could also be coerced to take part in a medical experiment. Consent of the person is ‘completely important.’
Earlier this 12 months, Mary Holland, Youngsters’s Well being Protection president and common counsel, and lawyer Greg Glaser said that federal regulation prohibits employers from mandating EUA COVID vaccines (or EUA COVID-19 assessments or masks). Holland and Glaser wrote:12
‘If a vaccine has been issued EUA by the FDA, it’s not absolutely licensed and have to be voluntary. A personal social gathering, comparable to an employer, college or hospital can not circumvent the EUA regulation, which prohibits mandates. Certainly, the EUA regulation stopping mandates is so express that there’s just one precedent case concerning an try to mandate an EUA vaccine.’”
In the event you’re like most, you’re most likely considering, “Effectively, Biden’s government order got here after the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration gave full approval to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID shot Comirnaty, so the vaccine just isn’t underneath EUA.” You’d be partially proper. However largely mistaken.
The Distinction Between Pfizer’s BNT162b2 Shot and Comirnaty
The FDA did certainly give full approval to Comirnaty, however that product just isn’t predicted to be obtainable for over a 12 months. The one Pfizer shot at the moment obtainable, known as BNT162b2, stays underneath EUA. We’ve got the FDA to thank for this uncommon and befuddling scenario, however the important thing take-home is that whereas approval has been granted to Comirnaty, that product just isn’t obtainable.
The FDA needs BNT162b2 to be seen as interchangeable with Comirnaty, however from a authorized standpoint they clearly will not be similar. BNT162b2, being underneath EUA, is indemnified towards monetary legal responsibility, whereas Comirnaty, as soon as it turns into obtainable, won’t have that legal responsibility protect (except Pfizer/BioNTech handle to get legal responsibility shielding for that product earlier than its launch).
In different phrases, in the event you’re injured by the BNT162b2, your solely recourse is to use for compensation from the Countermeasures Harm Compensation Act (CICP).13 Compensation from CICP could be very restricted and exhausting to get. In its 15-year historical past, it has paid out simply 29 claims, fewer than 1 in 10.14,15,16
You solely qualify in case your harm requires hospitalization and ends in vital incapacity and/or dying, and even in the event you meet the eligibility standards, it requires you to make use of up your personal medical insurance earlier than it kicks in to pay the distinction.
There’s no reimbursement for ache and struggling, solely misplaced wages and unpaid medical payments. This implies a retired individual can not qualify even when they die or find yourself in a wheelchair. Wage compensation is of restricted period, and capped at $50,000 a 12 months, and the CICP’s resolution can’t be appealed.
If regular circumstances apply to Comirnaty, have been you to be injured by that injection, you’d have the ability to sue for damages underneath the nationwide Vaccine Harm Compensation Plan (VICP),17 so from a authorized perspective, there’s a relatively vital distinction between these two merchandise.
Authorized Notifications You Can Use
In case your employer or college requires you to get a COVID shot, think about using the authorized notifications supplied by the Youngsters’s Well being Protection authorized crew. The notices inform employers and academic establishments that they’re violating federal regulation.
Three separate notices can be found for obtain from the Children’s Health Defense Legal Resources page;18 one for masks mandates, one for PCR testing and a 3rd for vaccines. There, it’s also possible to discover info on the right way to request a non secular exemption for COVID-19 vaccine mandates within the office.
Vaccine Mandate Heralds Communist Fashion Social Credit score System
In a September 13, 2021, episode of Fox Information’ Fox & Pals, co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy warned that vaccine mandates are “the start of the communist-style social credit score system,” including:19
“Dr. Anthony Fauci is now saying that in the event you don’t have the vaccine, you shouldn’t have the ability to have air journey. I imply, this occurs in China. In China … in the event you don’t agree with the federal government, you may’t get on a practice. They block you. They’ve a method to try this, and that is the start of that system the place in the event you’re a dissident, in the event you don’t agree with the social gathering in energy, you may be punished.”
Are we dashing towards a social credit score system the place habits is both rewarded or punished based mostly on the whims of these in command of the system? Biden’s refusal to make exceptions for these with pure immunity, who by no stretch of the creativeness really want or profit from a COVID shot, appears to point we’re positively heading that method.
Giving individuals with pure immunity a well being passport gained’t work for the technocratic elite as a result of the naturally immune aren’t on a vaccine subscription. The entire level of getting a vaccine passport is that you simply lose your freedom each time a brand new booster rolls out. You both get the booster or lose your freedom.
Folks with pure immunity can’t be roped into this management scheme. What are they going to drive the naturally proof against do as a way to preserve a sound passport? They will’t become profitable off pure immunity, they usually can’t use it to regulate.
In a September 13, 2021, letter to Biden, Shopper Manufacturers Affiliation CEO Geoff Freeman listed 19 of fifty questions acquired from its member corporations.20 Amongst these questions is whether or not Biden’s government order consists of spiritual or medical exemptions, together with exemption as a result of pure immunity.
As reported by Newsweek,21 particulars of Biden’s plan might be ironed out by the U.S. Occupational Security and Well being Administration (OSHA), however within the meantime, Freeman known as on the Biden administration to handle among the most urgent questions.
OSHA Lets Employers Off the Hook for Vaccine Accidents
Talking of OSHA, in Might 2021, the company quietly revoked22 the requirement23 for employers who mandate the vaccine to report unwanted effects as a work-related occasion. By doing so, OSHA relieved itself and employers from having to pay out employees’ comp if an worker is injured by a mandated COVID shot. OSHA tried to justify its resolution, stating:
“OSHA doesn’t want to have any look of discouraging employees from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and in addition doesn’t want to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts.
Consequently, OSHA won’t implement 29 CFR 1904’s recording necessities to require any employers to report employee unwanted effects from COVID-19 vaccination via Might 2022. We’ll reevaluate the company’s place at the moment to find out the most effective plan of action transferring ahead.”
Folks With Pure Immunity Flip to the Legislation
Within the days forward, our justice system is sure to clog up with lawsuits towards employers, faculties and governments alike. Legislation professor Todd Zywicki lately sued24 George Mason College in Virginia over their vaccine mandate, as he has pure immunity. Zywicki mentioned his lawsuit in an August 6, 2021, Wall Avenue Journal commentary.25
His lawsuit identified that folks with pure immunity have an elevated danger of hostile reactions to the COVID shot — based on one research26 as much as 4.4 instances the danger of clinically vital unwanted effects — and that the requirement violates due course of rights, the best to refuse undesirable medical remedy, and is noncompliant with the Emergency Use Authorization.27
August 17, 2021, George Mason College caved earlier than the case went to trial and granted Zywicki a medical exemption.28 Sadly, the varsity didn’t revise its common coverage.
A lot of different lawsuits have additionally been filed, together with one by greater than a dozen college students and Youngsters’s Well being Protection towards Rutgers College in New Jersey,29 and one by six Oregon employees who’re suing the state on grounds that they have already got pure immunity.30 The plaintiffs embody two corrections officers, an EMT, a medical workplace supervisor, a faculty bus driver and a particular agent in command of an Oregon Division of Justice investigatory unit.
Jason Dudash, director of the Oregon chapter of the Freedom Basis, which is representing the state staff, accused Oregon Gov. Kate Brown of changing into “power-hungry amid the pandemic.” “The courts should set up a extra logical, science-based method,” he mentioned.31
Army Service Members Sue Over Vaccine Mandate
Army service members with pure immunity are additionally suing the Division of Protection, the FDA and the Division of Well being and Human Companies. As reported by The Defender:32
“The lead plaintiffs within the lawsuit, Employees Sergeant Daniel Robert and Employees Sergeant Holli Mulvihill, allege U.S. Sec. of Protection Lloyd Austin ignored the DOD’s personal laws and created a completely new definition of ‘full immunity’ as being achievable solely by vaccination.
In response to the lawsuit, the navy’s current legal guidelines and laws unequivocally present the exemption the plaintiffs search underneath Military Regulation 40-562 (‘AR 40-562’), which offers documented survivors of an an infection a presumptive medical exemption from vaccination due to the pure immunity acquired because of having survived the an infection …
Dr. Admiral Brett Giroir, HHS assistant secretary, said in an interview Aug. 24 with Fox Information: ‘So pure immunity, it’s essential … There are nonetheless no knowledge to counsel vaccine immunity is healthier than pure immunity. I believe each are extremely protecting.’
But on the identical day, Austin issued a memo mandating your complete Armed Forces be vaccinated, by which he wrote: ‘These with earlier COVID-19 an infection will not be thought of absolutely vaccinated.’
In that memo, plaintiffs allege Austin created a brand new time period and idea, which contradicts the plain language of DOD’s personal laws, long-standing immunology apply, medical ethics and the overwhelming weight of scientific proof concerning this particular virus.
Plaintiffs declare Austin, who just isn’t a physician, modified the DOD’s personal regulation with out offering ‘a scintilla of proof to help it.’ In addition they allege Austin made the regulation change with out going via the required rulemaking course of, in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act assessment.”
The lawsuit additionally factors out that Pfizer’s Part 3 trials, which is the part by which long-term unwanted effects are detected, gained’t be accomplished till 2023. Furthermore, the lawsuit highlights the truth that Pfizer unblinded the 2 cohorts in the course of the trial and eradicated the management group by providing the actual “vaccine” to all controls.
In so doing, Pfizer turned the research from a placebo-controlled blinded trial into an open observational research, and the FDA allowed it. Observational research carry nowhere close to the identical weight as placebo-controlled trials, as you don’t have something to match the remedy group towards. It’s very straightforward to miss even extreme accidents when you haven’t any management group.
Fauci Warns There Will Be ‘Many Extra Vaccine Mandates’
As we method the two-year mark of this pandemic, it’s time for our judicial system to kick in and shield the general public. The emergency powers granted to governors will not be speculated to final ceaselessly, and the rights afforded us by the U.S. Structure have been by no means supposed to be suspended and tossed apart in instances of medical crises. It’s time this rampant lawlessness received reined in.
Whether or not or not that may occur stays to be seen. What we might be positive of is that if our authorized system fails to do its obligation, the beacon of freedom on this world might be misplaced. As reported by CNN,33 Fauci is on the market warning that “if extra individuals aren’t persuaded to get vaccinated by messaging from well being officers and ‘trusted political messengers,’ further mandates from faculties and companies could also be mandatory.”
The technocratic elite will take all of it the way in which as a result of they’re combating for the Nice Reset. And the Nice Reset gained’t work if persons are free. They want leverage over the inhabitants, which is exactly what vaccine passports are all about.
Jacobson v. Massachusetts: A Ruling With Tragic Penalties
In closing, those that help the mandating of experimental COVID pictures will usually level to the 1905 Jacobson v. Massachusetts case, which is commonly interpreted as giving authorities the best to drive vaccinate everybody for the frequent good. Nonetheless, as famous by Alex Berenson in a current weblog publish,34 we ought to actually have a look at the time at which that verdict was given.
Within the years surrounding the 1905 Jacobson v. Massachusetts verdict, the U.S. Supreme Court docket additionally dominated in favor of racial discrimination, company monopoly, baby labor and making questioning authorities a jailable offense. That very same 12 months, in 1905, they dominated employees haven’t any rights. In 1923, they dominated minimal wage legal guidelines are unlawful and in 1927 they OK’d compelled sterilization based mostly on the Jacobson ruling.
Most of those rulings have since been overturned, and for apparent causes. Most individuals don’t agree with racial discrimination, monopolies and baby labor anymore. Most agree that minimal wage legal guidelines are factor, and that questioning authorities is an unassailable proper that’s mandatory for democracy to work. The 1905 Jacobson v. Massachusetts case isn’t any completely different. It was made in and for a unique time, when particular person and human rights have been routinely quashed.
As famous by Nationwide Vaccine Data Middle president Barbara Loe Fisher in “How Worry of a Virus Modified Our World”:35
“Utilizing unhealthy logic and unhealthy science whereas leaning closely on the pseudo-ethic of utilitarianism, state governments got the inexperienced gentle to legally require vaccination based mostly on a ‘frequent perception’ that vaccination is protected and efficient, relatively than incontrovertible fact.
Piously waving the higher good flag to justify throwing civil liberties out the door, the courtroom majority dominated that residents would not have a authorized proper to be free always as a result of there are ‘manifold restraints to which each and every individual is essentially subjected for the frequent good’ …
However the justices additionally warned that obligatory vaccination legal guidelines shouldn’t be compelled on an individual whose bodily situation would make vaccination ‘merciless and inhuman to the final diploma.’ They mentioned:
‘We aren’t to be understood as holding that the statute was supposed to be utilized in such a case or, if it was so supposed, that the judiciary wouldn’t be competent to intervene and shield the well being and lifetime of the person involved. ‘All legal guidelines,’ this Court docket has mentioned, ‘ought to obtain a wise development’ …
Throughout this time of worry and confusion, the Jacobson ruling additionally reminds us that it’s democratically elected representatives in state legislatures who make public well being legal guidelines governing individuals residing in numerous states. That’s as a result of what just isn’t outlined within the U.S. Structure as a federal exercise is reserved for the states, which is a crucial examine on federal authorities energy.
Elected lawmakers in your state can select to mandate just a few or many vaccines with or with out exemptions, whereas the federal authorities has the authority to mandate vaccinations for individuals coming into the U.S. or crossing state borders.”
