The U.S. military's vaccine mandate is shameful

The Federalist’s Gabriel Powell writes, “Berkeley Simmons’s husband has requested a religious accommodation to the U.S. military’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate. She’s worried about what comes next for her family—and the Marine Corps. ‘It’s like a big old cloud that’s just heavily draped around so many people’s necks. Are they going to approve the exemptions or not? …What are we going to do? What happens when there’s no money?’ she wonders.

The Corps does offer a definite answer—a Marine who has requested an exemption can still choose to receive a vaccine. Simmons points out the palpable irony of the situation: Marines who ‘took an oath to protect and defend our country from enemies foreign and domestic and fight for the freedoms of the Constitution’ are now being denied one of its most cherished rights, ‘religious liberty.’

To date, the U.S. Marine Corps has not granted a single religious accommodation to its COVID-19 requirement, despite its policy to do so unless there is a ‘compelling government interest.’ According to several Marines going through the process, it does not intend to do so, and will kick them out once the vaccination deadline passes, stripping them of veterans’ benefits.

In June 2021, Rep. Thomas Massie R-Kentucky, introduced HR 3860, a bill that would prohibit any vaccine mandate in the military, after receiving calls from constituents in the military who were facing adverse conditions based on their vaccination status. Massie’s bill would prohibit a vaccination mandate in the military and prevent any adverse actions from being taken against military members who chose not to receive the vaccine.”

Remember when Biden said vaccines shouldn't be mandatory?

"I don't think it should be mandatory. I wouldn't demand it to be mandatory," Biden said at a news conference in Wilmington, Del. "Just like I don't think masks have to be made mandatory nationwide."

I said a year ago that Rittenhouse showed incredible restraint: 'I would not convict him of a single one of these charges'

The Hill reported in September 2020, “Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Thursday praised 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who is charged with homicide in the shooting deaths of two men in Kenosha, Wis., for showing ‘incredible restraint.’

Rittenhouse did so, Massie said on a radio show hosted by Tom Roten, by not firing all the rounds in his semi-automatic rifle during the incident on Aug. 27.

A local NBC affiliate reported on the remarks by the conservative lawmaker, who earlier this year was called out by President Trump when he sought to delay a vote on the CARES Act legislation approved by Congress in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

‘He also exhibited incredible restraint and presence and situational awareness,’ Massie reportedly said. ‘He didn’t empty a magazine into a crowd. There were people around him who could have caused him harm, but as soon as they showed any sign of retreat or nonaggression, he did not shoot them. He exhibited more restraint than a lot of the police videos I’ve seen.”

Why did the CDC change the definition of 'vaccine'?

Techno Fog observes, “The CDC caused an uproar in early September 2021, after it changed its definitions of 'vaccination' and 'vaccine.' For years, the CDC had set definitions for vaccination/vaccine that discussed immunity. This all changed on September 1, 2021.

The prior CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination (August 26, 2021):

"Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease."

The CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination since September 1, 2021:

"Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease."

People noticed. Representative Thomas Massie was among the first to discuss the change, noting the definition went from “immunity” to “protection”.

Where there is risk there must be a choice, not a mandate

The Daily Mail reports,Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine increases a person's risk of developing rare blood clots, a new study suggests.

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, compared data from the general population before the pandemic to data gathered from reported vaccine side-effects suffered by Americans.

They found that a person who received the vaccine was 3.5 times as likely to develop brain blood clots as an average person before the pandemic.”
