They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin
FoxNews.com reports that
President Joe Biden formally announced his plan to force companies with more than 100 employees to vaccinate workers against the coronavirus or test them weekly and dismissed concerns about encroaching on personal freedoms.
“This is not about freedom or personal choice,” Biden said during a Thursday address to the nation. “It’s about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love. My job as president is to protect all Americans.”
In his speech, Biden expressed frustration with unvaccinated Americans multiple times and said that he “understands” the “anger” that the vaccinated have against those who have not taken the vaccine.
“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden told the tens of millions of unvaccinated people in the country.
“Many of us are frustrated with the nearly 80 million Americans who are still not vaccinated, even though the vaccine is safe, effective and free,” Biden added. “You might be confused about what is true and what is false about COVID-19.”
The president also pointed a finger at Republican officials across the country who have opposed mask and vaccine mandates.
“We have the tools to combat COVID-19, and a distinct minority of Americans, supported by a distinct minority of elected officials, are keeping us from turning the corner,” Biden said. “These pandemic politics are making people sick, causing unvaccinated people to die.”
The president urged parents of children 12 and older to get vaccinated.
“They get vaccinated for a lot of things. That’s it. Get them vaccinated.”
Biden officially confirmed that he has instructed the Department of Labor to mandate employers with over 100 workers to either vaccinate them or force them to test for the virus weekly.
The rule could affect up to 100 million workers and will also levy substantial fines, up to $14,000 per infraction, against companies that refuse to comply.
In addition to the vaccination requirements, Biden is moving to double federal fines for airline passengers who refuse to wear masks on flights or to maintain face-covering requirements on federal property in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
The rule would also require that large companies provide paid time off for vaccination.
So, Biden has made his pivot…not from Afghanistan to COVID-19…but from coward to tyrant.
There is a slight hitch to the Puppet President’s Pronouncement…
…the broad powers held by states to control vaccine policy can also be used by state governments to block vaccine mandates, in certain situations, at lower government levels and in the private sector. As of August 2, at least 14 states had enacted Covid-19 related laws that barred employer vaccine mandates, school vaccine mandates, or vaccine passports.
At a federal level, the vaccine mandate question is more complicated. With few exceptions, the CRS (Congressional Research Service) says there are no laws that allow the federal government to issue a vaccine mandate to the general population. These exceptions include requiring proof of vaccination for immigrants requesting permanent resident status and vaccine mandates for military service members—allowing for certain exemptions.
Today, you are probably hearing about the Supreme Court Case of 11905, in which the Supreme court ruled that a local government in Massachusetts could mandate that members of a community be vaccinated, However, this was not a ruling in favor of a FORCED vaccination. If you chose not to take it, you were fined the equivalent of $150 in today’s money.
What Biden, in despotic fashion, read off his teleprompter yesterday, was a violation of3 not only state rights, but the rights of Americans and Private Business Owners to make their own decisions about their health and the way they operate their businesses.
Biden is not only overstepping his authority…he is goose-stepping over it.
From his decision to leave Americans behind in Afghanistan to be tortured and killed by the Taliban to he totalitarian and, quite frankly, fascist speech, yesterday, Biden has proven that he and his Handlers are exactly what they accused Donald J. Trump of being .
Even as the fence is being rebuilt around the Capitol of our Country, an attempt to install a totalitarian government is now in full swing.
The three things that might possibly save this Sovereign Nation from becoming just another failed Marxist oligarchy are our Constitution, our Governmental System of Checks and Balances, and our Traditional Faith and Values System which has allowed this “Land of Liberty” to exist for all these years.
It is time for average Americans to stand up and be heard.
Remember, Liberty is freedom with responsibility.
