Biden Says Federal Employees Must Get Vaccinated

The Biden administration is now telling all federal employees and onsite contractors that they must show proof of vaccination or subject themselves to weekly Covid testing. The announcement marks a sharp turn in rhetoric for the administration that initially claimed it did not intend to endorse vaccine mandates.

The move is likely to push more of the private sector into also implementing vaccine mandates for employees which some businesses and colleges have already begun doing.

The Hill reports:

The federal government employs over 4 million people. It’s unclear what percentage of the workforce is currently not vaccinated against COVID-19.

“I don’t have that number to share with you at that time,” White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Thursday when asked for an estimate on how many federal government employees the administration believes are not vaccinated.

Biden’s plans have triggered some pushback. The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, which represents 30,000 federal law enforcement officers across agencies, issued a statement ahead of Biden’s speech stating that a vaccine mandate would represent a civil rights violation.

“FLEOA fully supports individuals who voluntarily choose to be vaccinated, agree that it is safe and the most effective means of combatting the pandemic, and encourage our members to be vaccinated,” Larry Cosme, the association’s president, said in a statement. “However, forcing people to undertake a medical procedure is not the American way and is a clear civil rights violation no matter how proponents may seek to justify it.”

President Biden is attempting to tread carefully around the issue of mask mandates, a hot-button issue across the country, by clarifying that his announcement does not equate to a mandate. Instead, it falls just short and attempts to add enough hoops for government employees to jump through that they are coerced into “voluntarily” getting the shot.

Earlier in the week, the Justice Department issued an opinion stating that vaccine mandates do not violate federal law.

Qoute: “the Justice Department issued an opinion stating that vaccine mandates do not violate federal law.”
A bunch of leftist hangovers from Clinto, Obama and other leftist dimocrats.
They wouldn’t know the law and the Constitution if it bit them in the butt.

We’ve never been exempt from vaccinations in times of pandemics, even lesser concerns. Polio was without choice. Smallpox was without choice. Why should Covid-19 and now Covid-21 be any different?

you forgot about the 2 scams the Demo RATS tried to pull before #CoronaSCAM2020! They were trying their hardest to spread fake news about it just like Corona but they didn’t have the money to pay off the media to make it happen, the 2 Scamdemics before CoronaScam2020 were Swine Flu and Avian Bird Flu!!! all 3 nothing but scams! the mortality rate of Coronavirus is 0.02% death rate of those taking the CoronaSCAM shots is 40% forced suicide by lethal injection!

Because the vaxx is an experimental vaccine that has issues arising to death of those who completed two inoculations. The FDA has not approved it and will probably not unless an official is paid off. No thanks…..

I think more people will be willing voluntarily take the vaccines IF they are FDA approved. It should be our personal choice WITHOUT forced mandates that are unconstitutional and illegal.

No one was forced to take those vaccines. The covid-19 virus is less dangerous than the seasonal flu and the CDC numbers point that out. And we have at least 5 medications that stop the virus in its track. Stop buying into the lies related to the covid-19 virus. And remember, influenza is a corona virus and the anti-bodies the human body generates is the same for the covid-19 virus. And we are not in a pandemic but a “scamdemic”.

Actually, he just need to be arrested for impersonating a federal official, just like Kamala Harris. Mrs Harris, from the information I know about her birth is not a US citizen and thus invalidate the Biden/Harris election, regardless of the vote fraud. She might, MIGHT, have been naturalized but to be President and Vice-President one must be born in the US of a US citizen mother and US citizen father – i.e. be a natural born Citizen of the US. Just being born in the US has never made one a US citizen and still does not.

The Coronavirus has a mortality rate of 0,02%, two weeks ago the CDC released info on the shots showing that 40% of those who took the jab died 4,000 people total in 2 weeks! with a 0.02% mortality rate of those with coronavirus that means that in the 2 week period more people died from the shots than died of the virus for 1 year world wide! Their release was immediately pulled by the DemoRATS!

The Ironic thing is that the shots are showing the exact same side effects as the shots given to soldiers during Desert Storm! It wasn’t breathing in toxic gasses in Iraq that caused Desert Storm Syndrome it was the shots that the military gave to all soldiers that they thought they might use at some point during the war, most who died from it never set boots in Iraq!!!

Yes, and Biden claims to be a caring president, wanting all to have the immunizations, BUT allows thousands to illegally enter the US Southern border, many of which have the Corona virus, that likely will spread it to many citizens. And no one knows for sure where these illegals are( flown and bussed i over the nation in the daad of night).

I think that the vaccine is necessary for the health of the people but I must
admit that Joe Biden’s unacceptable remark, “Get the jab or get out” was well
out of line!
I also think that all those who don’t want to be vaccinated have the right to refuse!

The continued stupidity of the Biden Administration continues to prove they don’t have a clue. It has been determined, many will call this misinformation: The testing procedure for the SAR’s virus is incapable of distinguishing between COV-19 and Influenzas’ This is something we suspected a year ago.. Question, If they cannot identify the virus how do they expect to treat it or provide vaccinations that work?

Right. They’ve worked tirelessly to take down any vids with Dr’s saying that in order to create a vax you need to contain the virus and… there’s no contained virus. What’s in them? Nano technology so all these ai or transhuman are now technology. Hmmm will life insurance pay out if they die?

OR you can think of it this way: if the diagnostic testing cannot distinguish between the COVID SARS-2 and ordinary influenza, is this not an indication that the coronavirus is much more like the flu than the Government lets on? In mid-March our GP physician sent all his patients an EM advisory that no data exists to indicate that COVID is any worse than an ordinary flu epidemic and that the Great Pandemic is a politically motivated psy-op.

Why get a drug that’s not FDA approved,
Why get a “vaccine” if the virus has such a low chance of death
Why get a vaccine that had killed more than the attack on NY towers
Why get a vaccine that caused metal to stock to you.

This is a plan of reverse psychology by the Biden administration to increase and continue the spread of the Delta Covid-19. He opened the borders for virus infected illegal gypsies and terrorist to come across to infect us in the United States while convincing the American public NOT to get vaccinated through forced mandates and wearing masks. This administration though retarded is flexing its Unconstitutional Illegal authority of tyranny upon America.

Clown act, Pelosi/Biden Follies, Inflation getting worse, Biden blunders continue. Pelosi an Biden two political hacks, Pelosi thinks she runs the House an Senate, Biden thinks he is also Governor of Texas, are they now trying to form their own government? Sorry, two old farts, who have lost their minds, they know the house will be republican soon, the investigations will begin, corruption of both will be well known. The Democrat party will become lost in time, just as their KKK was lost in time for democrat history. Both are in far over their mental capabilities, IQ levels, any cognitive control screens. Most Biden executive orders are illegal, most Pelosi edicts are worthless, just like most of San Francisco has become desolate to real Americans. There are so many law suits against the Biden administration he has to hire more and more layers at the tax payor’s expense, what a way to govern, Biden follies will continue right up till he is impeached or resigns, Biden border invasion an crisis continues up until Americans begin to die from the virus infected, criminal charges will be pending. House will be lost investigations against the traitors will return law an order to out Country.

So either get vaccinated or be tested weekly. Will these be the same tests that the gov came out and said were not reliable (and used to skew numbers)? Will these tests be the ones that George Soros and Bill Gates now control? Why do you want to vaccinate and test US citizens when you have illegals flooding the southern border who are testing positive and they get on a bus/plane to be disbursed? This isn’t about the virus. It’s about control…

How about how the US says most of the people in the hospital are those who have not been vaccinated, yet everywhere else in the world, they are reporting the Delta is hitting those vaccinated the hardest?

How about how the J&J vaccine has been banned from certain countries?

How about we follow the science? The same science that has changed their stance several times over the past few months.

How about the 800+ FEMA camps across the US which are ready to house people who are non-compliant with vaccines?

How about the countries who have used Ivermectin and have very high recovery rates? Yet, we won’t use something that has a long history of very few side effects here?

How about how historically the gov has pulled any vaccine where more than 15 deaths have occurred? Gov is reporting over 5,000 deaths from C19 vaccines, yet we are still pushing it.

ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES Vaccinated or Not should immediately sue President Biden for an unlawful act of demanding ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES MUST BE VACCINATED. That is another FREEDOM the DEMOCRATS are trying to take away from the American People. The Democratic Party wants everyone to be their SLAVE (PUPPET)!

The “vaccine madate” is a volation of the US Constitution. The Federal Government has no authority to force people to take any drug or unsafe chemical concoctions. The chemicals in the so-called “vaccines” are like a computer virus and computer malware. DNA is like a computer and people are being killed by these chemical concoctions. Research the consquences that the “Propaganda Media” are covering up and their agenda.
