On Saturday, some unnamed actors within the House of Representatives inserted a exceptional provision into the so-called “budget reconciliation bill.” Almost no one exterior Washington observed it was there, and that’s not shocking. The invoice is likely one of the largest in human historical past. It’s practically twenty-five hundred pages lengthy. It spends $3.5 trillion {dollars}. Where does that cash come from? Well, it was simply newly printed by the federal reserve for the event. The provision in query was hidden on web page 168. Here’s what it says: going ahead the federal authorities will bankrupt any firm that refuses to adjust to Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate. 

Have an unvaccinated employee in your workplace? The high-quality for that can be $700,000, payable to the U.S. treasury, for every a type of employees. Even by Washington’s requirements, that’s some huge cash. Here’s a comparability: In June, by comparability, the federal authorities penalized a chemical firm in West Virginia, after its plant exploded, killing one worker and sending two others to the hospital. The high-quality, in that case, was $12,288 {dollars}. 

So there you’ve got it, written out in black and white, the ethical priorities of the Democratic Party. Killing individuals in a chemical plant explosion is unhealthy. Twelve thousand {dollars} unhealthy. But failing to get a Biden-mandated COVID vaccine — even should you’ve already recovered from COVID and have pure immunity that’s extra highly effective than any shot — that’s a lot, a lot worse. How a lot worse? It is 58 occasions worse than killing individuals in a chemical plant explosion. Democrats did the maths on that and so they wrote it down. 


This complete method is a bit bizarre if you consider it. If you actually wished to guard the general public, the American individuals, from COVID, you’d encourage them to be wholesome. Get off your cellphone, get exterior and spend a while in nature, lose some weight. That all works. We know for a truth. It’s science. And then individuals with greater danger elements like older individuals and preexisting well being in all probability would in all probability wish to get the vaccine. Definitely value it for them, they need to. Everyone else might have a look at the numbers and assess, they will select for themselves, as they do with each different medical resolution. The federal authorities isn’t requiring you to get surgical procedure for prostate most cancers should you get it. No, you get to resolve. 

That could be an affordable response to COVID. It may truly enhance the nation, reasonably than destroy it. But that’s very removed from what they’re doing, and the reason being politics. From the start of the outbreak, politicians have turned what they advised us was a public well being response into one thing that very a lot appears like a political marketing campaign. And in a political marketing campaign, the opposite facet is your enemy. So, unexpectedly, the general public has turn into an opponent that politicians should subdue and defeat. How do you are feeling about opponents you’re working to subdue and defeat? You really feel loathing and contempt. And that’s how they do really feel. They’re not hiding it anymore. Yesterday Democratic Rep. Cindy Axne from Iowa defined her social gathering’s response to COVID. She would not say something that exceptional, it is how she says it. Listen to how she talks about her constituents. She hates them:

CINDY AXNE: So now all the faculties are again wanting to place masks mandates in and the entire anti-vaxxer crazies are on the market with their – it’s a scorching mess. … I’ll be trustworthy, Christian proper, every little thing underneath the guise whereas they maintain a cross for God or no matter. They use it like a weapon and it’s painful to observe as a result of they’ve weaponized faith, they’ve weaponized politics.

The Christians are weaponizing it…discover all of the abortion clinics they closed? Oh no, it was Democratic politicians who closed all of the church buildings, truly, talking of weaponizing public well being. But you learn what the congresswoman stated, “the anti-vaxxer crazies… the Christians, holding a cross for God or whatever.” It’s laborious to recollect these are human beings she’s speaking about, among the weakest human beings in our nation. You’d by no means know they’re actual individuals as a result of she clearly loathes them. She hates them. You hear this tone rather a lot from politicians, unexpectedly. Lots. It’s not sympathy, it’s actually not empathy, it’s not even a honest try to make individuals higher or more healthy. It’s hate. Here’s the mayor of New York threatening to harm anybody who doesn’t get the shot, whether or not they want it or not:

DE BLASIO: Most individuals, the overwhelming majority of individuals, even those that say I did not wish to get vaccinated make a distinct resolution when it turns into very, very sensible. So, now somebody is actually wanting on the risk they will not have a paycheck for a chronic time period. They could even lose their job, in the end. Lots of people are going to take a look at that and say, “hold up, okay, I’ll get vaccinated.”

Oh, we’ll take your paycheck away. Punch you within the face, starve you to loss of life, we’ll beat up your youngsters. Turns out should you harm individuals sufficient, they may do precisely what you say. So that clearly works. Bill De Blasio is clearly a moron, however even he understands that. And it does work. United Airlines simply introduced they’re firing practically 600 individuals. Why are they doing that? They do not wish to pay tens of thousands and thousands of {dollars} in fines, so 600 individuals who had jobs final week are actually unemployed with no medical health insurance. That’s how we’re making America more healthy. Got it?


It’s not simply taking place on the airways. In hospitals throughout the nation, mass firings are actually underway. Where’s the Congress on this? Good query. Meanwhile, one hospital system in North Carolina simply canned 175 individuals. Remember, it is a public well being disaster we’re dwelling by means of. So possibly we shouldn’t empty the hospitals of their seasoned staff. There was already nationwide a extreme scarcity of nurses. Hospitals are closing wings as a result of there’s nobody to employees them. Now there are fewer individuals. None of the individuals who’ve been fired will be capable of acquire unemployment by the way in which. They’re carried out. They’re destroyed. They aren’t simply punished, they’re crushed. 

Sen. John Kennedy: Kamala Harris needs to stop staying 'stupid stuff'Video

These aren’t the CEOs of huge corporations. These aren’t the individuals who reside in prosperous neighborhoods. These are hourly employees. These are individuals the Democratic Party used to care about. These are individuals with completely no energy in any respect, who labored round sick individuals throughout a lethal pandemic. And reasonably than thanking them, we’re firing them, with no unemployment advantages and no medical health insurance. And a whole lot of them. 

In the state of New York, for instance, the deadline for healthcare employees to get vaccinated has now handed. According to the newest figures, 16% of the state’s hospital employees — that is 83,000 individuals – stay unvaccinated. Eight p.c of these employees have not gotten a single dose of the vaccine, that means they’re seemingly going to be fired. The query is, as soon as once more: who’s going to run the hospitals in the course of this public well being disaster? According to the brand new governor of New York, the state goes to make use of the navy, then rent temp employees from the Philippines.


It’s lunacy. By the way in which, as soon as once more, why precisely are these healthcare employees, 1000’s of them nationwide, refusing the COVID vaccine? That is a completely honest query, and nobody is asking it. It is likely to be value discovering out. You can’t say they don’t perceive the science. They could learn about COVID and healthcare even than your common Democratic governor, contemplating that’s what they do for a dwelling. They deal with individuals with COVID each single day. It’s not like they’re uninformed. What is that this precisely? It’s not a couple of individuals. It’s 1000’s of individuals. Why? No one cares. Punish them, the weakest. The weakest, now crushed. 

Meanwhile, as we’re firing nurses and docs, we’re admitting 1000’s of unlawful immigrants into this nation, lots of them are contaminated with illness, together with COVID. You’re not speculated to say that, as a result of it’s some type of slur, but it surely’s factually true. In truth, not solely is it true, the secretary of homeland safety admitted it. Here’s the secretary of homeland safety explaining that 20 p.c of those unlawful migrants have an unidentified sickness.

MAYORKAS: We are confronted with a inhabitants of those that, as a normal matter, have a fee of sickness of roughly 20%.

Ok, so we’re firing healthcare employees as a result of they received’t get the vaccine, then letting in 1000’s of individuals whose identities we won’t confirm, who’re sick with illnesses we won’t at all times establish – together with COVID – none of them are required to get the vaccine, in distinction with the nurses we simply fired. That leaves our hospitals short-staffed, many extra sick individuals coming in who will want therapy at public expense. Who’s doing this, and why? What is the purpose? They’re telling us healthcare employees must be fired instantly as a result of they’re a menace to the nation? This is all taking place very in a short time, and it’s taking place with none medical foundation in any respect. 

Remember that it was simply final 12 months that Joe Biden was telling us that healthcare employees are heroes, and he was proper:

BIDEN: To all of the docs and nurses working within the ICU items, I hope you all know that you just’re really among the biggest heroes this nation has seen. Take Tracy, in Massachusetts. She’s a nurse who’s been treating veterans with COVID-19. Every day she’s needed to placed on a hazmat go well with and go to work for 12 hours, days on finish.  … If it wasn’t for people like Tracy, our personal households wouldn’t have an opportunity to be reunited. IF you wish to discover a hero in America, they’re throughout us. And Tracy’s one among them.

I don’t usually endorse issues Joe Biden says, however that’s 100% proper. Anyone who has ever been sick or spent any time within the hospital is aware of that one good nurse makes all of the distinction. They actually are among the greatest individuals within the nation. So why are we firing 1000’s of them? Why is Joe Biden doing this? 


As a scientific matter, it doesn’t make any sense. Unvaccinated healthcare employees don’t pose a menace to their vaccinated sufferers or coworkers. If you are vaccinated, you may seemingly be high-quality. That’s what the info present. That’s what they inform us day after day. Vaccinated individuals have a better probability of dying from a lightning strike than they do of dying from COVID. They’re additionally extra prone to die of a bee sting, or a canine assault, or from choking to loss of life on their meals. Those are the numbers, we hear them fairly often. 

So why are unvaccinated individuals a menace to them? Not one particular person has answered that query. No one is even asking it. Why are we firing them? Why are we blaming them? Why are we of their face, attacking them, demonizing them? But nobody’s pushing again, so it’s accelerating. This is coming to the Border Patrol, in addition to the complete federal authorities. Mass firings are prone to happen within the Border Patrol’s ranks when the federal authorities’s vaccine mandate is enforced later this 12 months. 

It’s loopy. But if there may be one unhappy lesson, it’s that authoritarianism could be very widespread with sure components of the inhabitants. If you want proof of that, check out the scene final night time on the New Jersey gubernatorial debate. Read to the gang’s response as Phil Murphy equates not getting the COVID shot to driving drunk:

MURPHY:   Saying it’s your name and governments can’t mandate a vaccine or no masking is akin to supporting drunk driving. It impacts each the individual that’s driving drunk and all the remainder of us. (APPLAUSE) That’s not the way in which we beat this.

How is it like drunk driving? How do unvaccinated individuals harm anyone? Hey Phil Murphy, bought a second? We’ve bought a while. Why don’t you clarify that to us? 

It was only a 12 months in the past {that a} politician who bought on stage and stated that might be laughed off the stage. A politician who endorsed Firing 1000’s of healthcare employees, throughout a pandemic, calling them criminals, dehumanizing them, could be reviled. Now it will get applause. Not as a result of “the science” modified. Science is identical. It’s as a result of our leaders realized easy methods to leverage worry to crush their political opponents. And if which means fining dissidents $700,000 for using somebody, throwing the weakest individuals in our society out on the road with no unemployment and no medical health insurance, they’re going to do it.
