On Monday, a memo was released where Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin explained how he will safeguard the continued health and safety of the US military through the use of the available COVID-19 vaccines.
“I will seek the President’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon the U.S. Food and Drug Administration licensure, whichever comes first,” Austin said. “I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the president if l feel the need to do so.”
In other words, the defense secretary is willing to take away the dignity from service members who have offered to put their lives on the line to protect us from making their own decisions for their own health and wellbeing by forcing them to get vaccinated by a vaccine that was never fully tested for efficacy or safety after the vaccine companies intentionally lost their control group once the FDA gave the vaccines Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
Three vaccines are available, Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson, all of which are experimental.
The Biden administration believes by forcing you to get vaccinated, they are doing you a real solid. They believe you are too stupid to know what is for your own good and so you should thank your lucky stars that they are around to force you to get vaccinated.
Right now it is against the law for any employer, including the federal government, to force employees to take a vaccine that is under EUA.
Austin said if any one of the three vaccines gets full FDA approval before mid-September, he will make them mandatory immediately. And if they do not, he said he will ask for a waiver from President Joe Biden to make them mandatory. Given that Biden usually doesn’t know what day of the week it is, that’s very likely to happen. So, Austin will ask his boss for permission to break the law. Interesting.
It appears that Austin, like many others in this administration, is just itching to force Americans to get vaccinated, seeming like the zombie dogs of “I Am Legend” champing at the bit on the edge of waning sunlight, they are drooling at the mouth to give that order. For them, it’s just a formality at this point as they wait out the clock to commit what I consider a crime against humanity. Someday people like Austin and Biden will be dealt with properly in history books as the authoritarian monsters they really are.
As for military members who have religious objections to getting a vaccine, the way they can request an exemption depends on the military branch they belong, according to Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby who told the media on Tuesday.
“There is a religious exemption possibility for any mandatory vaccine, and there’s a process that we go through to counsel the individual both from a medical and from a command perspective about using a religious exemption,” Kirby said. In other words, the military is going to intimidate them into getting the jab.
Service members have to worry about their careers in the military if they don’t want to get vaccinated with one of the current COVID vaccines. Like everyone else, service members hear the stories of adverse effects to the vaccines that many Americans are experiencing.
Counseling, he said, includes a discussion with both a medical professional and a commander about the risks of not being vaccinated as well as how not being vaccinated might affect deployability, assignments or travel. Right now, the Army is telling members going through boot camp that they will not be allowed to attend their graduation if they are not vaccinated. I suspect that the woke running the Pentagon now will put a little check mark next to their name to harass them throughout their career, mark my words.
Requests for religious exemption differ by service, Kirby said.
“We take freedom of religion and worship seriously in the military, it’s one of the things that we sign up to defend,” he said. “And so it’s something that’s done very carefully.” He will do whatever his commanders tell him to do, just like the majority of service members.
Kirby said that there are medical exemptions as well against mandatory vaccines, which include pre-existing conditions.
“The primary care physician will be able to help make that determination,” for medical exemptions he said.
Still, the defense secretary and the department say they are confident that once vaccines are mandatory, service members will do their part. Of course they will, because they know they will be treated like crap if they don’t comply. If they don’t file for an exemption, they will be charged with disobeying an order.
The leftists who are running things now have no regard for exemptions, because they go against the agenda of the radical Commander-in-Chief.
The Biden administration wants 100 percent vaccinated to remove a control group of unvaccinated Americans. If everyone is vaccinated, then there are no unvaccinated people to point to for comparison to all the vaccinated Americans who are coming down with illnesses caused by the vaccines. That way, the administration can blame it on COVID and not the vaccines that they are pushing everyone to get.
“We have every expectation that once the vaccines are made mandatory, the troops are going to … do the right thing,” he said. “Going forward with this particular vaccine, the secretary’s expectation is that commanders are going to treat the administration of that vaccine with — as he wrote in his memo — professionalism, skill and compassion.” Yeah, and I’m Satoshi Nakamoto, creator of Bitcoin.
Kirby also said the department will ensure that every individual with reservations about getting a vaccine gets proper counseling on its safety and efficacy as well as how not getting the vaccine could affect teammates, readiness and the mission. In other words, you are being very foolish. We have ways of making you take the vaccine.
Either way, how our military members will be treated to mandatory vaccinations is just a preview of what’s to come for the rest of America’s unvaccinated.
