Mandatory coronavirus vaccination looming on the horizon

The reports during the past two days that President Trump has engaged the military in a project called Operation Warp Speed to fast track a Covid-19 vaccine – which is being compared to the World War Two Manhattan Project to develop a nuclear weapon – feels like the final blow. It has taken the wind out of my sails that America can be made great – aka pre-coronavirus panic – ever again.

President Trump’s promise of a vaccine yesterday implies words like mandate, monitoring, and immunity passports. Contact tracing and tens of thousands of new government workers to spy on and enforce compliance with that unproven strategy which came out of nowhere last month were bad enough. Now we have the next and possibly the final chapter: A new medical mandate enforced by the military that will make Obamacare’s onerous individual health insurance mandate seem like child’s play.

There are those of us – millions of us, actually – who have refused to take the annual flu vaccine and any of the other fashionable immunizations that are hyped and sold to us by the medical industrial complex and the mainstream media. When one looks closely, including into the scientific literature itself, there is just too little or no proof at all that most vaccines, including the annual vaunted flu shot, actually do any good – and/or are worth the potential dangers and the costs to personal health that lurk within all of them. The few exceptions for an adult might include something like a tetanus shot after a skin-breaking accident.

An article Thursday by Mike Adams of Natural News – a controversial and highly censored figure according to the MSM – pretty much checked out: “MILITARY vaccine mandates? Dept. of Defense purchasing 500 million ApiJect syringes to inject every person in America with coronavirus vaccine.” I am linking to another site that hosts Adams’ article here. When I attempted to tweet a link to the original on Thursday, Twitter blocked my link.

Adams’s analysis is based on a Department of Defense (DOD) news release on Wednesday: “DOD Awards $138 Million Contract, Enabling Prefilled Syringes for Future COVID-19 Vaccine.”

Statement attributed to Lt. Col. Mike Andrews, Department of Defense spokesman:

“Today the Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, announce a $138 million contract with ApiJect Systems America for ‘Project Jumpstart’ and ‘RAPID USA,’ which together will dramatically expand U.S. production capability for domestically manufactured, medical-grade injection devices starting by October 2020.”

Adams, a prominent proponent of natural alternatives to healing with a popular Web site (currently #4,157 in the U.S. according Alexa, with over 12,000 other sites linking to it), carries the analysis further.

Don’t forget that this is being married with President Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” which aims to bypass all the usual protocols of vaccine safety testing and clinical trials, delivering up to 300 million coronavirus vaccine doses before the end of calendar 2020….

If coronavirus vaccines were planned to be optional — respecting the vaccine choice of individuals — not more than 100 million doses would be needed. The fact that 500 million doses are being manufactured is an admission that the DoD and HHS plan to make coronavirus vaccines mandatory.  [emphasis original.]

With all of the talk about contact tracing and immunity passports, and the hype about a vaccine being our best or our only hope to achieving a viable new normal, Adams’s analysis cannot be dismissed out of hand.

One possible glimmer of hope is that at last – almost two months into the forced shutdown of life as we knew it – substantive critiques of the insane lockdown strategy are beginning to proliferate and to generate a broader discussion about exactly what’s going on here. One noteworthy report and analysis was published two days ago by David Stockman, elected in 1976 to two terms as a Republican Congressman and until 1985 the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. The title of Stockman’s provocative article is “WAKE-UP, Donald! Your Malpracticing Doctors Are The Real Killers.” Stockman’s article was apparently written on Tuesday May 12:

If you don’t think the fix is in, please take note of the big news of the morning. Namely, that the allegedly ultra-busy Dr. Fauci had time last evening to ping Sheryl Gay Stolberg, correspondent for the “failing New York Times”, in order to dump a VLCC size tanker- load of cold water on the urgent need to end Lockdown Nation, now. 

In a nanosecond, of course, Stolberg was on Twitter and on-line with Fauci’s stern admonition to the restless natives of Flyover America to shut-up and stay put. That way the entire MSM had plenty of time to crank-up a feverish barrage of messaging during Fauci’s actual Senate appearance as to how Red State governors are jumping the gun and putting life and limb in danger throughout the country:

“The major message that I wish to convey to the Senate HLP committee tomorrow is the danger of trying to open the country prematurely,” Fauci wrote in the email, which Stolberg posted on Twitter. 

“If we skip over the checkpoints in the guidelines to: ‘Open America Again,’ then we risk the danger of multiple outbreaks throughout the country. This will not only result in needless suffering and death, but would actually set us back on our quest to return to normal,” wrote Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. 

For god’s sake, WAKE UP, Donald!

Rather than quote further from Stockman’s detailed article, replete as it is with charts and graphs and totaling 2,500 words, I simply recommend that people read it for themselves here.

Thank God (capital G), there is an avalanche of writings that are both reflective of data, scientific accuracy, and clear-headed common sense that can serve as an antidote – a vaccine, as it were – to the toxic nonsense being spewed by deep administrative medical hacks and – yes – Democrat party stooges like Dr. Anthony Fauci.  Talk show host Michael Savage is the only prominent national media voice opposing the looming vaccination mandate (podcast here).  Carrying forth that information war, I would argue, represents our last if not our only hope in turning aside this highly destructive Covid-19 panic thing that has captured our culture for the past two months with no end in sight.
