Our Founding Fathers felt so strongly about the press being free to keep the people informed of what their government was doing that they added a protection to the very First Amendment, which we now refer to as the Freedom of the Press clause. Those wise men knew that there would be unscrupulous members of the press who would lie, sensationalize, and print Fake News, but I’m fairly certain they didn’t speculate that a news outlet would come along and employ nothing but liars, hyperbolic sensationalists, and purveyors of Fake News like CNN where honest news is the last thing they put out. CNN is more of a propaganda factory for Democrats and leftist causes aiding in the growing totalitarian control of America.
On Friday, the woke cable network had a panel that was berating the group of Americans who are still unvaccinated for the COVID-19 virus.
Leana Wen, born in Shanghai, China; is a physician; the former head of Planned Parenthood; a visiting professor at Milken Institute SPH; an op-ed writer for the leftist Washington Post where journalism dies in the darkness, the sunlight, and everything in between; and a medical analyst for CNN, was on the panel and argued, in front of everyone, that privileges that American citizens are born with now come with responsibilities. She subscribes to the most irresponsible, intolerant ideology that ever existed; woke leftism.
This authoritarian woman, who was not born here, sat in a position of authority and lectured American citizens who were born here that if they want their American citizen privileges, they have to do your part. She wants to start a cultural revolution in the US.
“There are privileges associated with being an American,” Wen said, “that if you wish to have these privileges, you need to get vaccinated. Travel, and having the right to travel interstate — it’s not a constitutional right as far as I know to board a plane.”
Who the hell does this woman think she is?
She added, “If you want to stay unvaccinated, that’s your choice. But if you want to travel, you better go get that vaccine.”

Who died and made her Mao lite? How does this cretin get to say something so unamerican like that on a news station and still get to keep her job?
As it turns out, the right to travel has been discussed as a fundamental American right since the beginning regardless of CNN Chi-Com propaganda.
Justice Warren Tolman, who twice served as the Chief Justice of the Washington State Supreme Court, said:
“Personal liberty, or the Right to enjoyment of life and liberty, is one of the fundamental or natural Rights, which has been protected by its inclusion as a guarantee in the various constitutions, which is not derived from, or dependent on, the U.S. Constitution, which may not be submitted to a vote and may not depend on the outcome of an election. It is one of the most sacred and valuable Rights, as sacred as the Right to private property … and is regarded as inalienable.” – 16 C.J.S., Constitutional Law, Sect.202, p.987
Law dictionaries would also slap the commie out of Wen’s hairstyle:
“Personal liberty — consists of the power of locomotion, of changing situations, of removing one’s person to whatever place one’s inclination may direct, without imprisonment or restraint unless by due process of law.” – Bovier’s Law Dictionary, 1914 ed., Black’s Law Dictionary, 5th ed.;
Blackstone’s Commentary 134; Hare, Constitution__Pg. 777
“The right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, in the ordinary course of life and business, is a common right which he has under the right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and to pursue happiness and safety. It includes the right, in so doing, to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day, and under the existing modes of travel, includes the right to drive a horse drawn carriage or wagon thereon or to operate an automobile thereon, for the usual and ordinary purpose of life and business.” – Thompson vs. Smith, supra.;
Teche Lines vs. Danforth, Miss., 12 S.2d 784
Being free to move about is considered a fundamental constitutional right. Leftist like Wen and pretty much anyone who makes a regular appearance on CNN, believe if you want to be able to travel, you have to show us your papers.
Leana Wen should be fired immediately, but we shouldn’t hold our breath.
The radical Wen also likened being unvaccinated to driving while “under the influence.”
“Remaining unvaccinated & going out in public is equivalent to driving under the influence. You want to be intoxicated?” she asked on social media. “That’s your choice, but if you want to drive a car, that endangers others. No one should have the ‘choice’ to infect others with a potentially deadly disease.”
Did she get her medical degree from a box of CrackerJack? The problem with this kind of mentality goes back to the early days of the pandemic, when we thought people were “asymptomatic” for up to two weeks or longer. That has since been debunked, but radical leftists like Wen here still base all of their arguments on the falsehood that unvaccinated people could be asymptomatic and making other people sick. It assumes that all unvaccinated people are sick with COVID and it’s just not true.
If CNN were a reputable news outlet, they would get rid of Leana Wen as soon as possible. Again, we shouldn’t hold our breath.
