JEA: The following article by constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead is not a dissertation for or against vaccine. It is simply a reflection of what is happening. Don’t be naïve to believe that the oligarchs aren’t really happy about using the covid pandemic for their own ideological agenda. As the popular saying goes, never let a good crisis go to waste.

There are serious doctors, academic scientists, and nurses who are genuinely concerned about what is going on, and I would challenge anyone to pick up the resent scholarly study entitled: Corona, False Alarm?: Facts and Figures, written by two academic scientists and Karina Reiss and Sucharit Bhakdi. The book is packed with statistical data. My two sisters are practicing nurses, and one of my late brothers was a pharmacist in Ohio. They all were concerned about what was happening (too much to detail here). In any event, it is always sobering for anyone to use his or her skeptical mind whenever a crisis pops up.

We are moving fast down the road to fascism.

This COVID-19 pandemic has shifted us into high gear.

The heavy-handed collusion between the Techno-Corporate State and the U.S. government over vaccine mandates is merely the latest manifestation of the extent to which fascist forces are working to overthrow our constitutional republic and nullify the rights of the individual.

In early November 2021, the Biden Administration drew its line in the sand for more than 100 million American workers: get vaccinated against COVID-19 (by Nov. 22 for federal workers, and Jan. 4 for federal contractors and companies with more than 100 employees) or else.

Or else what?

For many individuals with sincere objections to the vaccine, either based on their religious beliefs or some other medical or philosophical concern, non-compliance with workplace vaccine mandates will mean losing their jobs and the possibility of no unemployment benefits.

One survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management estimated that 28% of employed Americans wouldn’t get a COVID vaccine even if it meant losing their jobs.

Although OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is requiring that employees be paid for the time it takes to get vaccinated and recover from any side effects, those who refuse to get vaccinated but keep their jobs will have to test negative for COVID weekly and could be made to shoulder the costs of those weekly tests. Healthcare workers are not being given an option for testing: it’s the vaccine or nothing.

To give the government’s arm-twisting some added strength, companies that violate the workplace mandate rules “can face fines of up to $13,653 per violation for serious violations and 10 times that for willful or repeated violations.”

In other words, as Katrina Trinko writes for USA Today, “the government is turning employers—who are not paid by, nor work for, the government—into an army of vaccine enforcers.”

You know who won’t suffer any harm as a result of these vaccine mandates? The Corporate State (manufacturers, distributors, and health care providers), which were given a blanket “get out of jail” card to insulate them from liability for any injuries or death caused by the vaccines.

While this vaccine mandate is being presented as a “targeted” mandate as opposed to a national mandate that impacts the entire population, it effectively leaves those with sincere objections to the COVID vaccine with very little options beyond total compliance or unemployment.

This has long since ceased to be a debate over how best to protect the populace at large against an unknown pandemic. Rather, it has become a massively intrusive, coercive and authoritarian assault on the right of individual sovereignty over one’s life, self and private property.

As such, these COVID-19 mandates have become the new battleground in the government’s tug-of-war over bodily autonomy and individual sovereignty.

Already, the legal challenges to these vaccine mandates are piling up before the courts. Before long, divided circuit court rulings will make their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which will be asked to decide whether these mandates constitute government overreach or a natural extension of the government’s so-called emergency powers.

With every new court ruling that empowers corporations and the government to use heavy-handed tactics to bring about vaccine compliance, with every new workplace mandate that forces employees to choose between their right to bodily autonomy and economic livelihood, and with every new piece of legislation that insulates corporations and the government from being held accountability for vaccine injuries and deaths, our property interest in our bodies is diminished.

At a minimum, our right to individual sovereignty over our lives and our bodies is being usurped by power-hungry authoritarians; greedy, self-serving corporations; egotistical Nanny Staters who think they know what’s best for the rest of the populace; and a short-sighted but well-meaning populace which fails to understand the long-term ramifications of trading their essential freedoms for temporary promises of safety and security.

We are more vulnerable now than ever before.

This debate over bodily autonomy, which covers broad territory ranging from forced vaccinations, abortion and euthanasia to forced blood draws, biometric surveillance and basic healthcare, has far-reaching ramifications for who gets to decide what happens to our bodies during an encounter with government officials.

On a daily basis, Americans are already being made to relinquish the most intimate details of who we are—our biological makeup, our genetic blueprints, and our biometrics (facial characteristics and structure, fingerprints, iris scans, etc.)—in order to clear the nearly insurmountable hurdle that increasingly defines life in the United States: we are now guilty until proven innocent.

This merely pushes us one step further down that road towards a total control society in which the government in collusion with Corporate America gets to decide who is “worthy” of being allowed to take part in society.

Right now, COVID-19 vaccines are the magic ticket for gaining access to the “privileges” of communal life. Having already conditioned the population to the idea that being part of society is a privilege and not a right, such access could easily be predicated on social credit scores, the worthiness of one’s political views, or the extent to which one is willing to comply with the government’s dictates, no matter what they might be.

The government is litigating and legislating its way into a new framework where the dictates of petty bureaucrats carry greater weight than the inalienable rights of the citizenry.

When all that we own, all that we earn, all that we say and do—our very lives—depends on the benevolence of government agents and corporate shareholders for whom profit and power will always trump principle, we should all be leery and afraid.

  1. “As such, these COVID-19 mandates have become the new battleground in the government’s tug-of-war over bodily autonomy and individual sovereignty.”

    Try telling that one to your for-profit heath and life insurance providers, Jonas. It’s just a matter of time for them to dramatically raise premiums for the unvaccinated just as they already raise premiums for smokers and the obese. As far as I know, it’s only “socialized” health care like the Medicare I have that can’t do that… yet.

    • Oh, and by the way, our government is already a barely-concealed corporate fascism wearing wing-tipped jack boots as Heinrich Böll once wrote. Now we are faced with full-on Bannon-style Christo fascism, wearing MAGA caps and carrying assault rifles. These folks want to turn the USA into some kind of Zionist theocracy. That is the last thing that the millions who came here from Europe on the run from the Inquisition, the Thirty-Years War, and the pogroms that happened all over Europe want.

  2. We are composed of patterns of information, information that can be intercepted and changed.

    “We can generate an electronic signal which is characteristic of the DNA. This can read DNA from a solution and your blood is a solution, it’s a liquid. We can decode it into a form that can be read by a computer. In a way you can think of DNA as digital information moving through a tube. Now if we can tap into that tube like a network we can read that information, we can intercept what is happening in people. You can make them an extension of the internet.
    I have a thermostat at home that’s on my iPad, I can change, I can warm the house up before I get home. People call that The Internet of Things. We call this The Internet of Living Things”. Clive Brown, Oxford Nanopore Technologies.
    “There are new technologies, and a lot of them are being developed by StartUps and the Military, that much more accurately measure and communicate with your brain. Now the nice thing about this technology is its non-invasive.” Steve Hoffman, Silicon Valley Angel Investor and CEO of Founders Space.

    Go straight to the source- the living brain.

  3. It won’t be the first time that children are vaccinated against some microbe that already disappeared. And the immunity from liability for virus has been around for years. So what’s so new here? Not much really.

    • Mihail. To answer your question YES. I won’t incur any further wrath here my mentioning the unsolved mystery of the autism epidemic that is effecting millions. The US medical “system” kills more people with chemo drugs and radiation than die from cancer itself. But Covid 19 is the biggest game yet. My daughter-in-law had convulsions immediately after the Pfizer shots. Idiot doctors said it was panic attacks. I am really done with all of them including the PA and nurses who question none of this but claim some expertise that no one else has. Just ask them.

  4. Great article and observations!!

    WE CAN DO BETTER!! THERE IS A BETTER PATH!!

    The COVID-19 vaccines are not up to the safety level of the Pneumovax vaccination, nor even the Influenza vaccination. It would take at least 50 fold improvement to get there. Lets work on this and animal testing. The public demands it.

    And as of 10 weeks ago….THERE IS NO NEED.

    With the FDA approval of the Monoclonal antibodies, everybody can get a single infusion and it is game over. Done. COVID-19 cured. It is best between day 1-7 but can be given up to around day 14. I have heard reports of taste and smell returning in 3 hours. The efficacy studies are fabulous and there are virtually no side effects.

    The US Government (your tax dollars) should be spreading the word on the Monoclonal antibodies and getting distribution into needed areas. PR message should mimic and follow states with high current occurrence rates of COVID-19. Do not wait to you are hospitalized because it was not tested nor FDA approved for hospital use for primary COVID-19.

    There should be no further deaths from COVID-19 with the release of the monoclonal antibodies. Lets get the word out!! And it works agaist DELTA.

    They want to vaccinate our children against a virus that is NO LONGER IN CIRCULATION.

    Think about that!!
