Marines Are Refusing COVID Vaccines En Masse

Just shy of 40 percent of Marine Corps service members have refused to take the coronavirus jab, new data provided to the media shows. The revelation comes as Democratic lawmakers push to make the vaccine mandatory for soldiers.

Some 75,500 Marines have agreed to be vaccinated as of Thursday, while around 48,000 have declined the inoculation, CNN reported, citing numbers provided by the branch. That puts the rejection rate at 38.9%, slightly higher than the 33% rate for the whole military given by defense officials.

Marine spokeswoman Colonel Kelly Frushour explained that Marines may be refusing the shot for a number of reasons, including allowing others in more vulnerable groups to take it first, allergies to the vaccine or obtaining it by other, non-military means…

While the military is currently barred from mandating any of the coronavirus vaccines rolled out in the US, as each has received only emergency FDA approval rather than full authorization, some in Congress have pressed the Joe Biden administration to change that. Read more…

Detroit Will Deploy Door-to-Door Vaccine Pushers

Detroit is planning to hire people to go door-to-door to tell city residents to get vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

On Tuesday, April 6, the Detroit City Council – composed entirely of Democrats – unanimously approved a $1.2 million contract with the Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation to hire between 50 to 55 additional city employees.

This team will use a strategy similar to what Detroit used to promote its 2020 census. It will go door-to-door to pressure all of the city’s residents who are above the age of 16 to get the coronavirus vaccine. The employees will also be working with nonprofits to achieve their goals.

“This contract will ensure that ALL Detroiters know the facts about the vaccines and where they can get free shots,” wrote City Councilman Scott Benson on his social media account.

The initiative will be led by Vicky Kovari, an executive assistant to Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. Kovari also spearheaded the city’s census outreach campaign last year.

“We’re going to knock on every residential door in the city, making sure every Detroiter knows how to make an appointment [to get vaccinated],” said Kovari. Read more…

As Vaccine Passports Loom, the FBI Begins a Scare Campaign

After it was confirmed that the Biden regime is working with major corporations to develop a country-wide vaccine passport, and after New York began the rollout of its own vaccine passport system, the FBI is warning people against fake vaccine passports or COVID-19 vaccination cards.

“We’ve all seen friends posting their #COVID19 vaccination cards on social media,” wrote the Minneapolis branch of the FBI on social medial. “If you make or buy a fake one to misrepresent your vaccination status, you endanger other people and may also be breaking the law.”

The FBI linked to a press release from the Internet Crime Complaint Center, which reveals that federal law enforcement, including the FBI, is “advising the public to be aware of individuals selling fake COVID-19 vaccination record cards and encouraging others to print fake cards at home” and notes that “Fake vaccination record cards have been advertised on social media websites, as well as e-commerce platforms and blogs.”

“If you did not receive the vaccine, do not buy fake vaccine cards, do not make your own vaccine cards, and do not fill-in blank vaccination record cards with false information,” the press release explains, “By misrepresenting yourself as vaccinated when entering schools, mass transit, workplaces, gyms, or places of worship, you put yourself and others around you at risk of contracting COVID-19.”

“Additionally, the unauthorized use of an official government agency’s seal (such as HHS or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)) is a crime, and may be punishable under Title 18 United States Code, Section 1017, and other applicable laws.”

As National File reported, the Biden administration is working with major corporations to develop a vaccine passport system that would require Americans to take one of the controversial vaccines and receive a vaccine passport to engage in commerce. According to establishment newspaper The Washington Post, Biden’s plan is for the vaccine passport to be pushed entirely through large corporations – essentially barring those who refuse the vaccine from engaging in commerce – without any direct federal involvement.

Behold the Twisted Logic Behind Vaccine Passports

The left just cannot get enough of all the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) tyranny, including the new “vaccine passports” that have been unveiled in New York. Why, then, are Democrats opposed to having to show identification when voting?

In order to keep people “safe” from the Chinese virus, they claim that everyone must wear a mask, get “vaccinated,” and carry around identification papers or a smartphone app to prove that they are not infected. When it comes to voting, though, Democrats are fine with just taking people’s word for it.

The hypocrisy is striking. It shows that the left is not actually concerned with safety, honesty, decency or any of the other virtuous concepts they love to throw around as their own. There is no consistency with anything they say or do.

On the one hand, nobody can be trusted to go about their business without showing evidence that they either tested “negative” or were jabbed for Chinese germs. At the same time, expecting people to show a photo ID before casting a vote is simply too much to ask, they say.

The Democrat-majority House of Representatives recently voted on a bill to eliminate all state voter ID laws that require voters to authenticate their identity before pulling the lever. The claim is that having to show proper ID is a “barrier” or “obstacle” to voting.

The same can be said of vaccine passports, which represent a barrier to traveling, going to sporting events, or maintaining employment. And yet this is okay because the scary Chinese virus might get us all if not everyone agrees to get swabbed and jabbed. Read more…

Journalists Promote ‘Breaking Down Resistance’ of Fauci Skeptics

Bill Clinton appointee and Los Angeles Times Legal Affairs Columnist Harry Litman admitted that “vaccine passports are a good idea” because they will “single out” and “break down” vaccine skeptics. This comes amid widespread concerns with reports that the Biden regime is influencing corporations to de-facto force Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine by restricting access to travel, products, and services.

“Vaccine passports are a good idea. Among other things, it will single out the still large contingent of people who refuse vaccines, who will be foreclosed from doing a lot of things their peers can do,” tweeted Litman. “That should help break the resistance down.”

A recent poll by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy that showed that a staggering one out of four Americans will reasonably refuse to take the experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. It appears that many Americans remain skeptical despite the creepy corporate/government campaigns currently urging them to get vaccinated. Read more…

Biden is Pioneering the COVID Surveillance State

A year has now passed since the original COVID lockdown began, and the Biden regime has decided what their next move is. Instead of noticing falling infection and death numbers, and the odd disappearance of the seasonal flu from health statistics, the Biden regime has amped up the scare campaign and is preparing to unveil a police state measure beyond Obama’s wildest dreams: the vaccine passport. The report was published today, and we have the details.

After months of speculation, today The Washington Post confirmed that the Biden regime is developing a “vaccine passport” that Americans may need to present to prove they have received their COVID-19 vaccine before they will be allowed to engage in commerce in a “return to normalcy” that looks nothing like the past.

According to The Washington Post, the Biden regime “and private companies are working to develop a standard way of handling credentials — often referred to as ‘vaccine passports’ — that would allow Americans to prove they have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus as businesses try to reopen.”

They note that many businesses, “from cruise lines to sports teams,” will require individuals to take the COVID-19 vaccine before they are offered business. The Biden regime, apparently, views this as a positive development.

“The passports are expected to be free and available through applications for smartphones,” the Post reported. “Which could display a scannable code similar to an airline boarding pass. Americans without smartphone access should be able to print out the passports, developers have said.”

According to those developing the vaccine passports, they must be entirely unique, and not able to be hacked or tampered with, lest Americans engage in commerce without taking one of the controversial vaccines.

Biden’s team is apparently committed to the vaccine passports, though they refused to speak to the media on the subject, and apparently do not like branding them “passports” but would instead like to see them called “credentials or certificates.” Read more…

Guess Whose NGO Got $3.5 Billion from the Biden Bust-Out?

The $1.9 trillion COVID-19 “relief” plan that Congress approved this month contains massive giveaways to various left-wing agenda items, including $3.5 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which is associated with the left-wing Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

As LifeSiteNews has previously covered, the bill sends $1,400 “stimulus” checks to most Americans while spending $14 billion on distributing experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, more than $500 million on foreign assistance for humanitarian emergencies, $204 million on State Department operations, and $41 million on USAID operating expenses, much of which falls outside of existing limits on money going to abortions. It also makes abortion groups eligible to receive some of the $8.6 billion meant to assist global pandemic response. Read more…

Beto O’Rourke Says Texas Reopening is “Human Sacrifice”

Despite all the evidence that lockdowns, even in their most extreme forms, do little to nothing to stop the spread of COVID-19, but instead cause societal decay, extreme wealth inequality, and even arguably “destroys what makes us human,” former Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke says the decision to re-open the Texas economy amounts to a form of human sacrifice.

“They literally want to sacrifice the lives of our fellow Texans, for — I don’t know, for political gain? To satisfy certain powerful interests within the state? And this isn’t hyperbole,” O’Rourke told MSNBC on Wednesday when asked why he believed Texas Governor Greg Abbott made the decision to lift the statewide mask mandate and allow all businesses to reopen at full capacity.

Sen. Ted Cruz Calls WHO Report on Coronavirus Origin “Shameful” for Mimicking CCP Narrative

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz called the report of the World Health Organization (WHO) on the origins of the coronavirus “shameful” for mimicking the narrative of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that the disease didn’t originate from a Wuhan laboratory.

“At the outset of the pandemic, the WHO acted as a propagandist for communist China, echoing the CCP’s lies,” the Texas senator tweeted on Wednesday, Feb. 10. “Now, the WHO concludes that the virus did not accidentally escape from a Wuhan government lab because … the CCP told them it didn’t.”

Peter Embarek, a Danish scientist who led the WHO fact-finding mission in China, earlier dismissed the claim that the virus may have leaked from a local virology lab in Wuhan as “extremely unlikely.” Read more…

Globalist Oligarch Bill Gates Calls for First World Countries To Replace Meat with 100% Synthetic Alternative

Bill Gates made his most direct call for banning the consumption of meat in the United States and the western world in an interview with the MIT Technology Review on Sunday.

“So no, I don’t think the poorest 80 countries will be eating synthetic meat. I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.

So for meat in the middle-income-and-above countries, I do think it’s possible. But it’s one of those ones where, wow, you have to track it every year and see, and the politics [are challenging]. There are all these bills that say it’s got to be called, basically, lab garbage to be sold. They don’t want us to use the beef label.”

Gates has rapidly become the single greatest owner of farmland in the United States, a development that is thought to be part of a scheme to crack down on American cattle ranching and the raising of livestock. Read more…
