Author and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson wrote a short piece on Wednesday that got me thinking about what the country has gone through since the start of the COVID pandemic and where the authoritarians are taking us.
Lucky for us, COVID-19 and the exploitation of it by Democrat politicians everywhere didn’t bring us down. But if you have been paying attention, you may have already figured out that the unconstitutional vaccine mandates might.
The authoritarians are telling us the vaccine mandates are for our own good and for the good of “public health.” They tell us they know this because they are “following the science.” But they are not following the science, because there is enough science being proffered by doctors and scientists who are treating COVID patients that goes against what the authoritarians are telling us. Epidemiologists told us the worst thing we could do was lockdowns, but for our own good and the good of public health, the authoritarians put us in lockdown.
The authoritarians refuse to acknowledge that those with natural immunity are just as if not even more protected from COVID than those who get the vaccine. But the authoritarians don’t seem to care about that science.
By now most of us have heard about “the great reset.” It’s a term that the Marxist totalitarians are using, which means they get to use the COVID pandemic to gain emergency powers that they will use to change our world and the way we live in it. Those in charge of the great reset want to create a world of total authoritarianism where they are in charge and the rest of us had better like it or else.
After a year and a half of coronavirus mitigation orders from some state governments and not others, the American people see that between authoritarian measures in blue states and less or even none in red states not producing that much of a difference throughout the pandemic, people have started to fight back to get their God-given rights back. They were willing to put up with the lockdowns and other orders temporarily for the good of public health, but not willing to lose their rights indefinitely.
This is why the Biden administration chose to implement a vaccine mandate. In order to control you, to make you bend the knee, to give in to their authority, they are putting your entire life on the line. Accepting the loss of your personal sovereignty over your own body is the final test for the radical Marxist authoritarians.
The authoritarians are counting on vaccine mandates based on the threat of losing your livelihood and not being about to feed your children as what will make everyone comply with their authoritarian demands.
They thought wrong.
All over the country Americans are standing up to the authoritarians. The government and woke corporate fascists are now firing employees because of the Biden vaccine mandate for federal employees and federal contractors, even though the mandate is not yet official with the OSHA guidelines. On top of that, there is no approved vaccine in the United States that is available, so it is unconstitutional to force American citizens to take experimental medicine into their bodies that they don’t want to.
And the authoritarians’ miscalculation has a strong potential to take us all down. What do I mean?
Pilots for Southwest Airlines already showed us how the country could be shut down over vaccine mandates. They walked out for only a weekend and chaos ensued. Imagine what will happen when airlines start firing large numbers of personnel over the vaccine mandate.
Authoritarian politicians in states are firing nurses and other medical staff, including doctors who refuse to get the jab. You would think the authoritarians would consider listening to medical doctors who refuse to get the jab, but they won’t because it’s better for public health if they don’t.
Already, a hospital in upstate New York had to stop delivering babies in their maternity ward because too many of the staff refused to get vaccinated and lost their jobs. The hospital doesn’t have enough staff to deliver babies. You would think with a dilemma like that the hospital administration would reconsider the mandate, but no.
The authoritarians are looking to replace the great unwashed, filthy unvaccinated.
Another example is whenever a severe storm like a hurricane, a tornado, or ice storms cause serious damage to areas of the country, crews of linemen, the guys who go out to fix electric lines that go down so people can live their lives again with power, head into the storm areas to fix the power lines. There are crews from around the country that get ready to travel to those storm-ridden states to help out the local guys. The unions do that to help each other out with the extra manpower because you never know when your crews are going to need help. I’m involved in that in another life and it’s actually pretty cool to watch them all coordinate to help out.
Now, crews from many states don’t want to go into the northeast states to help out if a serious life-threatening storm or some other natural disaster happens because of the vaccine mandates. Way to go authoritarians! Great job. Now, the people in those states might not get their power back for a much longer time, all because the authoritarians want you to bend the knee.
The Gothamist reported that in the New York Fire Department (FDNY) 1 in 5 ambulances and fire companies could be offline this coming Monday as New York City workers fight against the vaccine mandates. Can you imagine the problems that are going to hit New Yorkers when there are fires and emergencies and there will not be enough first responders available? NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo in a dress don’t care. You will obey them or your kids don’t eat.
The authoritarians don’t care that many New Yorkers who did get vaccinated might die because of a lack of first responders, the same people who were called heroes last year if, God forbid, something happens to them and no one shows up.
How are the authoritarians going to explain that the cause of people not being able to be treated for health emergencies is all about public health?
Hospital personnel are being thinned out and 20% of first responders may be wiped out by the mandate and the dunces in charge think it’s only going to affect the unvaccinated who now can’t feed their families.
And it’s not just health care workers. The New York Post ran a piece on Wednesday pointing out that trash is piling up in NYC and the sanitation workers are blaming Mayor Bill de Blasio.
From the New York Post:
These city employees think Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate is pure garbage — and they should know!
Sanitation workers outraged over the order to get inoculated against COVID-19 are letting trash pile up across Staten Island and in parts of Brooklyn — and the head of their union said Wednesday that he’s on their side.
The protesting workers are engaging in a rule-book slowdown that includes returning to their garages for things like gloves or gas so collections don’t get finished, sources said.
Supervisors have even been warned to guard the garages this weekend to prevent trucks from getting vandalized, sources said.
We know when that happens in NYC; the rats come out for the trash and that’s a whole other health hazard for the residents of the city. If a resident gets bit by a rat, there most likely won’t be any first responders to take care of them. But not to worry, because it’s all happening for public health.
Great job, de Blasio and Kathy Hochul! Way to go. What would we ever do without authoritarian government planners?
And if you think scenarios like that will only happen in New York and not in every state across the country, then I have some wonderful gold mines I would love to sell you.
The Hill put out an article on Friday pointing out that 12,000 Air Force personnel have rejected vaccine mandate orders and they will be fired:
About 12,000 Air Force personnel have declined to get vaccinated for COVID-19, causing many officials to question how to address the considerable opposition without causing significant challenges and setbacks within the military, The Washington Post reported.
Officials had warned that if military personnel do not receive the COVID-19 vaccination, they will be subjected to punishment, including possible dismissal from service or receiving a charge from the military justice system, the Post wrote. The deadline for complying with the mandate is Tuesday.
Are the authoritarians in the Biden administration willing to put our military preparedness in jeopardy in the effort to get us to bend the knee? What if China does attack Taiwan? We won’t be able to fly sorties there to defend the island nation.
And it’s not just in the Air Force. All the military services are going to lose tens of thousands or more over the mandate. You would think the politicians would see the enormity of their decision.
So we’re going to have garbage in the streets with rats running rampant, no electricity, no EMTs or paramedics to come take you to a hospital that is short staffed, anyway. On top of that, no food and other necessities in the stores because of the supply chain problems that Joe Biden all but admitted during a recent CNN town hall that he has no idea how to fix.
Think about this. Remember back to the beginning of the pandemic, the fear the government struck in us? The lockdowns, the mask mandates, schools shut down and virtual learning for our kids, and shortages of necessities we needed to buy in stores. None of that took us down. It did a lot of damage to our way of life, but we got through all of that and made it out to the other side. But now, even worse is going to hit us because of authoritarian dictator Democrats who want to exert their authority over you for something that is unnecessary in most cases. It will be our Soviet Ukrainian famine.
People who were too frightened to work last year got unemployment benefits, continual stimulus checks to join the Flat Ass Society to not work, and a rent moratorium. People who never stopped working throughout the pandemic are getting fired and denied all benefits.
Incidentally, New York City’s vaccine mandate takes effect today at 5pm et.
But not to worry because the authoritarian Democrats are doing it all for public health.
I bet all the authoritarians will have wonderful dinners in warm homes every night.
