As an American citizen and a member of a high-risk group, I refuse to accept any mandate, advice, or suggestion from a demonstrably corrupt Administration headed by a cognitively impaired individual whose Administration is being run by ideological and incompetent holdovers from the scandal-ridden Obama Administration.
An Administration whose top medical officials working for the leading medical agencies lied about almost everything, including the origin, spread, treatment, and outcomes related to the COVID-19 virus – including the fact that it was developed with U.S.-funded technology in our enemy’s laboratory with ties to hostile military bioweapons research.
Just in time to assist the progressive communist democrats in stealing the 2024 election by demanding mail-in balloting to avoid the spread of the new COVID variant, which seems to mutate at the speed of politics.
Biden Suggests He Will Mandate a COVID Booster for All Americans This Fall
Here we go again— the Biden Administration has plans to roll out a new COVID-19 vaccine this fall, requiring Americans to get another jab.
Despite declaring earlier this year that COVID is no longer a threat, President Joe Biden said his administration will "likely" recommend that all Americans receive the updated booster, including children.
[OCS: Face it! It is not Biden speaking as he merely reads the words of an anonymous Obama acolyte.]
Over the weekend, the president told reporters that he plans to ask Congress for additional funds to develop a new vaccine, adding that he may force everyone to take it whether they previously received the initial vaccine.
"Yes, I can," Biden said. "I signed off this morning on a proposal we have to present to Congress a request for additional funding for a new vaccine that is necessary, that works."
The new vaccines, developed by Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax, have been re-designed to target the dominant XBB variants that magically popped up just in time for the general election. The jab is expected to be rolled out sometime in mid-September.
[OCS: Will these "more of the same" vaccines be tested by the FDA for efficacy and effectiveness, or receive rubber-stamped "emergency approvals" under an agreement that holds the government and vaccine manufacturers immune from adverse consequences?]
Additionally, a TSA whistleblower allegedly reported that mandates would return in October. CNN also pushed the Left's Covid hysteria, citing so-called "experts" who say to "dust off those N95 masks and place them snugly over your nose and mouth to protect yourself from a recent uptick of the virus."<Source>
The government is now urging (wink-wink) the major platform operators to ramp up their efforts to combat disinformation, especially health-related disinformation…
Once again, the government is urging the conventional and social media to reassert their role as watchdogs against “conspiracy theories” ahead of the 2024 presidential election. However, what they can’t deny is that the major conspiracy theories involving the progressive communist democrats not only have been proven to be accurate but even worse than first imagined.
Operating on the specious basis that hostile foreign actors are attempting to spread disinformation to disrupt our nation, government agencies are gearing up to “protect” America and Americans by becoming the arbiters of the “truth,” much as they have become the arbiters of what is “science,” “gender,” and social justice.
Pushback – rediscovering the First Amendment right to free speech…
U.S. is barred from combating disinformation on social media. Here's what it means
The government's ability to fight disinformation online has suffered a legal setback that experts say will have a chilling effect on communications between federal agencies and social media companies.
[OCS: Are those the same so-called “experts” who manipulated the system for personal and political profit and blatantly lied to the American people – possibly resulting in thousands of American deaths?]
A Tuesday ruling by a federal district judge in Louisiana could have far-reaching consequences for the government's ability to work with Facebook and other social media giants to address false and misleading claims about COVID, vaccines, voting, and other issues that could undermine public health and erode confidence in election results.
District Court Judge Terry Doughty, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, issued a preliminary injunction on Tuesday that bars several federal departments and agencies from various interactions with social media companies.
On Wednesday, the Justice Department filed a notice that it will appeal the injunction with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The government also expects to ask the court to stay the district judge's decision, meaning it would not go into effect while the appeal is heard.
What does the judge's ruling say?
Doughty issued a temporary injunction blocking agencies including the departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, and State, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FBI and many individual government officials from doing things like notifying platforms about specific posts that may be against their own rules or asking for information about content moderation efforts.
The injunction bans interactions such as "meeting with social-media companies for the purpose of urging, encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner the removal, deletion, suppression, or reduction of content containing protected free speech posted on social-media platforms".
It also blocks federal agencies from flagging specific posts that contain protected free speech, encouraging social media companies to change their guidelines regarding such posts, or asking the companies to "be on the lookout" for such postings.
What else is in the injunction?
The ruling also prevents federal officials from working with third parties including the Election Integrity Partnership, the Virality Project, and the Stanford Internet Observatory — three academic research groups that track the spread of online information. Republicans have accused the Biden administration of attempting to outsource its alleged efforts to stifle speech to outside organizations and academics.
[OCS: Are these the same third-party non-profit groups who purport to be non-partisan while funding and promoting programs that almost always seem to benefit the progressive communist democrats? Like operating a voter registration drive but concentrating those efforts in highly concentrated or marginal Democrat districts? Or by falsely labeling something as “disinformation” to give the government “plausible deniability?” Or by providing an ignition point that can be used to justify a congressional hearing or government “investigation?”]
MacCarthy says the judge's tone was "a little bit over the top" and "apocalyptic," but the free speech issues involved in the case are real.
"I know it's a matter of the paranoia of the conservative groups that they're being victimized by shadowy agents and the government," he says. "But these are not one-sided partisan issues here. These are issues that everyone should be concerned about."
[OCS: Funny, MacCarthy is Mark MacCarthy, a tech policy expert and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, a progressive communist democrat think tank associated with the Obama/Clinton Russia hoax and the Steele dossier.
What does the Biden administration say about this?
The Justice Department is reviewing the injunction and will evaluate its options in the case, a White House official told NPR.
"This administration has promoted responsible actions to protect public health, safety, and security when confronted by challenges like a deadly pandemic and foreign attacks on our elections," the official said in a statement. "Our consistent view remains that social media platforms have a critical responsibility to take account of the effects their platforms are having on the American people, but make independent choices about the information they present."
[OCS: This is a big lie! Almost everything in the Obama/Biden Administration was either ideologically or financially corrupt and was the product of morally and legally bankrupt ideologues.]
The truth emerges...
Biden Admin Admits Vaccine Error: No Evidence Behind Recommendations｜Facts Matter
After a 7 month long legal battle, the Biden administration conceded that there is no scientific evidence to support an apparent recommendation to receive as many as six COVID-19 booster shots per year.
It took government watchdog Functional Government Initiative (FGI) eight months and a lawsuit for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to confirm that there was no scientific or academic basis supporting Secretary Xavier Becerra’s prescription for COVID-19 vaccine booster shots every two months. HHS ignored FGI’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for months until taken to court, and now says there are no documents or communications explaining the origin of the Secretary’s public health pronouncement.
Considering the many concerns that surrounded and still surround COVID vaccine efficacy and safety, such confusion and unsubstantiated public health pronouncements raise serious questions about the administration’s approach to pandemic policy. The lack of supporting records for the Secretary’s controversial recommendation also raises more questions on whether federal officials are committed to grounding major public health recommendations in hard science and empirical evidence – even if they run counter to the Biden administration’s policy agenda.
“The lack of a single record supporting Secretary Becerra’s bold public health recommendation for six COVID boosters a year is a startling development. It is tremendously irresponsible for the government’s chief health official to fire off tweets recommending frequent injections of a new vaccine booster apparently based on no academic or scientific support.
How can the public be assured that the agency is ‘following the science’ on other important public health matters when it demonstrates such clear disregard for basic scientific integrity standards on an issue as important as COVID vaccine shots? Pandemics and vaccines are matters of life and death. Americans should be able to trust their leaders are not playing politics with their health.” <Source>
