GOP Governor Kristi Noem Won’t Ban Mandates, but There is a Catch

Gage Skidmore Flickr

One GOP governor is not jumping in front of the vaccine mandate train and has decided to instead take the stance that they can find employment elsewhere.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) has made her decision on private business while also banning the mandates for government workers

According to The Daily Wire:

Republican state Reps. Jon Hansen and Scott Odenbach are trying to null businesses mandating their employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 through the “COVID-19 Vaccine Freedom of Conscience Act.”

Noem claims such legislation is a slippery slope that could lead to other dictates toward businesses Republicans might not like. “If we mandate one thing, are we setting a precedent for what we are telling businesses they have to do far into the future?” Noem posed.

The Republican governor has, though, banned vaccine mandates for employees in state and local government in SD.

She has also argued that employees of private businesses opposed to a vaccine mandate can go work elsewhere.

While most governors try to make political statements by dictating to businesses what they can and can’t do, Noem recognizes that one party is not forever in power and what may be positive now could have disastrous effects down the road. Think a business having to pay for abortions.

Noem gives cart blanche to businesses who want to mandate the jab. If most of them do this, what other employment are people going to get? What of employees who smoke? Are obese? Should employers also ban them, since they pose a health risk to themselves and possibly others?

So, if people get sick by being too close to those with COVID, then why is that despicable excuse for a President, Joe Biden, shipping COVID positive ILLEGALS all over the United States who continue to flow in, unabated over our Southern Border??

All this chaos over the last 18 months for a virus with a national mortality rate of 0.13%. We also know, through two independent studies, the CDC over-recorded C19 deaths by as much as 1,600%, so the number of C19 deaths are likely much lower than flu, certainly lower than heart disease, cancer, and car accidents. This country has become INSANE over something that, like ANY virus, is dangerous to medically vulnerable people, but survivable for most (I consider a survival rate of 99.87% (CDC) “most”). This mess is all about political power and control. You want to show me this is like Ebola used to be (98% mortality rate), THEN talk to me about mask & vaccine mandates.

The highest number of deaths World Wide is abortion of tiny helpless babies. Covid is at the bottom (Lowest) on the list. And the same people behind Covid and vaccines are the ones who are Pedophiles and Eugenics using babies blood at heightened pain levels to get the Andrechrome . The tests using swabs are getting your DNA and many of the swabs were contaminated All Political hoax

That’s what happens when there is an incompetent old fart in the White House who doesn’t know squat about what is happening in front of him!

Please remember, biddyboy Biden is NOT calling the shots but someone is manipulating him to make actions — just like when Obamalama was in office! You do understand BHO was nothing but a puppet like Biddy boy. Someone is telling them what to do — their PUPPETMASTER — neither of those two has a high enough IQ to make major decisions, so here we are in disaster after disaster after disaster!

What I don’t get is where are the American HEROS that step up to the plate to get rid of incompetent presidents like biddy? Where are the Smart people laying out plans?? It seems America is just standing still, spinning our wheels while Biden keeps throwing dung in American’s faces and making us the laughing stock of the World Powers!

What’s up with that and why are WE THE PEOPLE letting that happen?? Biden’s excuse is FEEBLEMINDEDNESS! What’s American’s excuse??

Joe is also shipping Covid positive Muslins to an area near you.

And their spawn, extended family, smelly food, goats,sheep (no pigs) and camels.
Not to mention shy little girls, that can be had for a price, if you are young enough, they are not complete savages,when it comes to sex.

There are so many things to be scared of.

Another way to look at it is she will not dictate to private businesses a policy she has no constitutional authority over. Now the State legislature could pass a bill forbidding mandatory vaccines or any medical procedure anywhere in the State.The Congress could do the same for all fifty States. We can only hope and pray.

As a rule employers are not stupid, they will never fire a good employee who is producing for the business, no matter how fat, or if they smoke. Governments, cannot get into the business of telling companies how to run their businesses. I agree with Noem.

Covid is not good for business.

Governments tell companies what they can put in the air and water, how bad they smell, how loud they are, how much water they use, how much power they can use not mention the number of fire extinguishers….

There will be many businesses that will hire the better working employees regardless of the jab and they will thrive while people decide to stay away from those businesses that require it.

In a free society, employers should be able to hire and fire according to their own personal decisions, and NOT be influence in any way by the actions or statements of any government authority. That’s the way it was set up by the Founders, who were concerned with subduing any kind of government power to individual liberty, and who would roll over in their graves if they could see what this country has turned into by government dictatorships at all levels.

All of history has been the struggle of individuals (and their rights) against the all-powerful control of government. This battle continues, and is more important today than at any time since the American Revolution

Actually it’s coming out from “experts” that the vaccine is more dangerous than getting covid. I wish someone who knows something would find out the truth about the covid. It was great at first and now suddenly it murders you. Come on, what is the truth, it’s a lousy vaccine with ingredients that are known and have been used in the past and the past use of these ingredients should tell us if they are useful or are murdering us. This is 2021 not the middle ages, scientists are capable of studying the ingredients of the vaccine and from prior use can tell us what is the truth.

Look at the thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of other adverse reactions listed on the Vaccine Adverse Events Report System (VAERS.gov). This is only a small portion of the actual numbers, because they are way behind with the entries.

Behind with entries or willfully not posting them. Brazil’s VAERS has reported over 30,000 deaths from vaccines. We’re definitely under reporting. Thousands of women are suffering menstrual irregularities from periods every week to women in post menopause suddenly menstruating. It’s destroying their natural reproductive system.

But many people are resisting. I believe that like the flu vaccines this should be an individuals choice. Get government and the vaccine nazis out of it. I took them and it was mildly uncomfortable and that has been nearly a year ago. For some whose immune systems are challenged the problems are likely higher. No guarantees come with vaccines ever. Even a flu shot can kill some. But the real point is most save billions of lives compared to those who react. Think big when you think vaccine!

It’s reported that over 5,000 deaths have been reported to the GOVERNMENT;S VAERS (sp?) and NORMALLY only 1% of reactions are reported, so DO THE MATH!

Not true. Until this “vaccine”, mRNA had never been used on humans. It is NOT a “lousy vaccine” like they used to make. Novovax is the only one currently on the table that is a traditional vaccine. It is made in Maryland, but a small company and the FDA “paused” the EUA for it while they “push” the other shots.

There’s a lot of information about these vaccines but not from the USA. I will only mention this, anything that Bill Gates, George Soros, Anthony Fauci, & NIH has their hands in i would question! I do not recommend these vaccines. The CDC has not been upfront about stats, and there’s some shenanigans going on with the FDA. Reports are out there, so if you rely on the mainstream media your not going to hear anything. Other countries have reported deaths and permanent side effects. They will be removing the rapid PCR test off the market, because the test was a false positive test, because it couldn’t tell the difference between covid or the flu. That’s where our flu stats went this past flu season, categorization was covid. There is no test to distinguish between covid or a covid variant. This was asked by a doctor inquiring at a medical facility and told this on a video on Rumble, the actual phone call.

Per Fauci, no one who isn’t sneezing or coughing can transmit anything to anyone. So the unvaxed are not a problem. The problem is those who are vaxed because they have become “gain of function disease factories” creating new variants and spreading them to others. It’s the vaxed who should be quarantined! No one has any authority or right to punish, segregate, intimidate, coerce, torture or otherwise deprive anyone of their right to make decisions about their own health and well-being, or that of their family. Any order that directly infringes upon the Natural Rights of the American people, those you have taken an oath to protect and defend, resulting in any “deprivation of Rights” or a “conspiracy” to deprive Citizens of the constitutionally protected Natural Rights, is a crime of the highest order. It is “treason.” The 4th Amendment protects every American’s right to be “secure in their person.”  Any act that violates this protected Natural Right is a “deprivation of rights” punishable by death.

To keep forever vaccines in place the left needs super spreaders. The super spreaders are the foreigners invading USA over the southern border. C-19 for all intent is over but the variant(s) will continue to mutate & the vaccine for C-19 will not be adequate or appropriate for variant eradication. Now, remember that Bill Gates is a huge vaccine and eugenics proponent. Gates is a globalist along with other billionaires, don’t trust them. Think for yourself they do not have your best interest at heart.

Governor Noem is way ahead of the usual-think conclusions. Whatever happened to the excellent results many doctors saw by prescribing Hydroxychloroquine as a way around crowded hospitals. What do patients have to lose? asked Trump. Their lives, snide Fauci-ites replied. But over 600,000 chose to die without giving it a chance, apparently. So maybe there’s a better answer.
