Just today, AAPS put out a statement that there appears to be a majority to block Biden’s employer “vaccine” mandate, whereas the Centers for Medicare and Medicade Services (CMS: mandate will probably be upheld: https://mailchi.mp/aapsonline/scotus-vax-update
The three Democrat-appointed justices expressed their dismay that anyone would seek to block a Covid vaccine mandate. But even more justices implied that the sweeping employer mandate should be addressed by the States or by Congress, not by a mere agency (OSHA) acting under a vague old statute.
Justice Kagan said that the government is paying for these services, saying that if you want “my money” (and calling federal money “its money”), then CMS can require the Covid “vaccine”. She was dismissive about shortages at (many) small hospitals, describing it merely as a “rural hospital” question.
And this, right here, shows that government money always has strings attached and they never include your concerns.
Stop Federal Vaccine Database Bill H.R. 550
Members of Congress are seeking to pass H.R. 550, which would enable the federal government to track Americans’ vaccination status, infringing upon their privacy.
URGENT: Members of Congress are seeking to pass legislation enabling the federal government to track Americans’ vaccination status, infringing upon their privacy.
H.R. 550, the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act of 2021, is sponsored by Rep. Ann Kuster (D-N.H.; 17% Freedom Index score) and cosponsored by 14 representatives. The bill passed the House by a 294-130 vote on November 30, 2021, and it is currently pending in the Senate.
If enacted, H.R. 550 would spend $400 million for “immunization system data modernization and expansion,” and to “[expand] CDC and [state and local] Public Health Department Capabilities.”
Specifically, H.R. 550 would require the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to create national standards for vaccine database records — it authorizes the use of grants to pressure state and local officials to adopt these standards. Additionally, the bill requires that states make their databases accessible to the federal government, “non-governmental entities,” and “other persons.”
These state vaccine databases — called immunization information systems (IIS) — that the federal government would have access to and that would be expanded under H.R. 550, “remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine,” among other functions. H.R. 550 includes other provisions that empower the federal government and infringe upon Americans’ privacy.
Additionally, H.R. 550 allows the HHS to use fascist-style public-private partnerships to implement the bill’s provisions.
H.R. 550 represents a serious erosion of medical privacy and yet another socialist, unconstitutional enlargement of federal power. First and foremost, the U.S. Constitution does not delegate any public health-related powers to the federal government. The only powers that Congress has are specifically enumerated in Article I, Section 8. Under the 10th Amendment, these powers are reserved to the states and the people.
Additionally, H.R. 550 opens the door to a federal vaccine database and, by extension, the coercion and punishment of those who do not abide by the government’s wishes. Although the bill’s sponsors and supporters claim that the bill has “guardrails” against government tracking, Biden’s own HHS secretary, Xavier Becerra, has claimed that it is “absolutely the government’s business” to know who has received the COVID shot.
As Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon and former Trump administration official, warned:
[G]overnments have a tendency to grow, to infiltrate, and to control…. And this is a prime example of what government growth would do, having this database, first of all, subjecting people to the COVID [jab]. But it’ll secondarily be used for other things as well.
Additionally, Dr. Ron Paul, a former congressman, has noted that “The government could also use these records to deny care to people not following federal health care ‘recommendations,’” similar to how unvaccinated individuals are increasingly being discriminated against.
It is imperative that we stop this growing tyranny right in its tracks. Tell your U.S. senator to oppose H.R. 550 and to reject any other bill that infringes upon medical privacy and expands federal power.
Although we provide a way to easily email legislators, we know from long experience that it takes a lot more interaction with your legislators to get your point across than that provided by emails alone.
That’s why we provide an easy way not only to email them, but to contact them by phone, tweet, and even video message them.
In case you think this is far-fetched, France’s lower House just passed the “vax” pass plans:
Jan. 6, 2022
All citizens must be “vaccinated” to enjoy public needs
And unvaccinated Australians in the Northern Territory have been put under a new lockdown during which they won’t be allowed to go outside to exercise or travel to work.
Apologies for the tardiness of this, but there is still time to write OSHA as the deadline isn’t until Jan. 19, 2022. For a sample letter (feel free to use as-is or modify): OSHA letter (Make sure to sign and date letter)
Urgent: 3 Ways to Help Stop Biden’s Vaccine Mandates
Children’s Health Defense is calling on scientists, citizens and medical experts to help stop President Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates for employees, federal contractors and healthcare workers by posting comments on three federal rule making websites.
Children’s Health Defense is calling on scientists, citizens and medical experts to help stop President Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates for employees, federal contractors and healthcare workers.
Here’s how you can help: Post a comment, explaining why you oppose the mandates, on each of the federal eRulemaking portals for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Post your comments on each government website:
Here’s what you need to know about each vaccine mandate rule:
OMB: President Biden on Sept. 9 announced his “Path Out of the Pandemic: COVID-19 Action Plan,” and signed an executive order mandating COVID vaccination for federal contractors.
This rule calls for all covered contractors to require all their employees be fully vaccinated for COVID.
The deadline to submit proof of full vaccination (unless the employee is legally entitled to an exemption) is Jan. 18, 2022. Read the full regulation here.
CMS: On Nov. 4, CMS established that Medicare- and Medicaid-certified providers, suppliers and staff must be vaccinated for COVID-19.
However, on Nov. 30, the federal district court in Louisiana issued a preliminary injunction, affecting healthcare workers nationwide, against enforcing the mandate.
The court stated: “During a pandemic such as this one, it is even more important to safeguard the separation of powers set forth in our Constitution to avoid erosion of our liberties.”
Post your comment for CMS here.
OSHA: The OSHA rule requiring businesses with 100 or more employees to mandate COVID vaccines for all employees took effect Nov. 5.
However, on Nov. 16, OSHA suspended implementation and enforcement of its Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on mandatory COVID vaccination and testing in the workplace.
The suspension followed a 22-page ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals which called the Biden administration’s mandate “fatally flawed” and said OSHA should “take no steps to implement or enforce the mandate until further court order.”
CHD is calling for OSHA to extend the deadline for public comment and to submit Environmental Impact Statements to the public on the safety, health and economic impact of this order.
The U.S. Senate on Dec. 8 voted to repeal the employer mandates, but the measure still has to go to the House. Biden signaled he would veto the measure if it were to pass in both the Senate and House.
