A bioethics “expert” is stating that it is perfectly legal and constitutional for states to fine, imprison, or deny employment to individuals who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
“States can compel vaccinations in more or less intrusive ways,” says Dov Fox, a Soros fellow who serves as the director of the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics at the University of San Diego. “They can limit access to schools or services or jobs if people don’t get vaccinated. They could force them to pay a fine or even lock them up in jail.”
Fox cites the case of Jacobson v. Massachusetts (1905), in which the robed lawyers on the bench decided that Massachusetts could fine individuals who refused smallpox inoculations. This has been exploited by bureaucrats to force children who are not vaccinated out of public schools.
“Courts have found that when medical necessity requires it, the public health outweighs the individual rights and liberties at stake,” Fox says.
Fox notes that enacting vaccine mandates at the state level could have significant blowback, with large protests already being waged against restrictive quarantine policies. Just because these measures are legal does not mean they should necessarily be enacted, Fox argues.
He also makes the point that religious exemptions would not be necessary for vaccine mandates, as religious liberty is essentially no more.
“Religious exemptions are not constitutionally required by the First Amendment’s Free Exercise clause, provided that the vaccine mandates don’t single out religion; they’re not motivated by a desire to interfere with it,” Fox says.
Fox believes that the states would need to enact the vaccine mandates for them to be legally binding, as a federal mandate would likely be ruled unconstitutional. The 2012 decision on the Affordable Care Act by SCOTUS made it clear that the feds cannot lawfully compel the states into adopting such a scheme against their will, even if it were perpetrated under the guise of public safety.
Big League Politics has reported on the frenzied push for mass vaccinations while the public is still in the grips of COVID-19 mass hysteria, which has resulted in the federal “Operation Warp Speed” pharmaceutical power-grab:
President Donald Trump has launched “Operation Warp Speed” to funnel resources toward Big Pharma for the purposes of creating a vaccine shot that will be ready for mass distribution throughout the country by the end of the year.
The White House is calling this a Manhattan Project-style project that aims to get vaccines into as many people as quickly as possible, in a move that must have technocratic oligarch Bill Gates grinning ear-to-ear.
“Operation Warp Speed is clearly another extension of President Trump’s bold leadership and unwillingness to accept ‘business as usual’ approaches to addressing the COVID-19 crisis,” said Michael Caputo, who works as assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services.
The project is expected to cost the U.S. taxpayer billions of dollars, with much of that money going into the coffers of Big Pharma, and they hope to have 100 million doses ready by the end of the year. It is unclear if these vaccines would even improve the public health, as the government’s own data shows that regular influenza vaccines are only effective 40 percent of the time.
The Trump administration is working along with disgraced globalist organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) in using the coronavirus pandemic for a vaccine push.
“We are scientists, physicians, funders and manufacturers who have come together as part of an international collaboration, coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO), to help speed the availability of a vaccine against COVID-19,” dozens of so-called experts declared in a WHO press release.
“While a vaccine for general use takes time to develop, a vaccine may ultimately be instrumental in controlling this worldwide pandemic… We will continue efforts to strengthen the unprecedented worldwide collaboration, cooperation and sharing of data already underway. We believe these efforts will help reduce inefficiencies and duplication of effort, and we will work tenaciously to increase the likelihood that one or more safe and effective vaccines will soon be made available to all,” they added.
Vaccine skeptics are seeing their worst nightmare come to fruition, as the right crisis has arrived to usher in coercive mandates and destroy the freedom to choose.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
