Remember when Biden repeatedly proclaimed that he would not call for mandatory vaccines while “campaigning” in 2020?
Well, it is safe to say that campaign “promise,” like pretty much every other campaign “promise,” has gone up in smoke, especially after Biden unveiled his “Six Prong Strategy” for combating COVID yesterday.
And, sure enough, one of the “prongs” of the strategy is mandatory vaccines, which will impact upwards of 100M Americans or more, according to Biden.
More specifically, businesses that employ more than 100 people in the private sector must either force employees to receive vaccines or subject them to weekly testing, whereas federal employees must receive the vaccine, period, with no option for weekly testing.
Throughout his speech, Biden raged against the unvaccinated, openly declaring he’d lost his patience with them.

Biden is hardly one to talk about causing a lot of damage, especially with regards to COVID.
After all, the last time anyone checked, it was hardly unvaccinated Americans encouraging COVID-laden illegal migrants to stream across the border, but it certainly was the Harris-Biden administration.
On top of that, Obama’s little birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard apparently “caused a lot of damage” in terms of COVID infections on the island as well, but Biden didn’t bother to call out Obama either.
Then again, Biden is “finishing the job” of Obama, apparently, so no wonder.
Needless to say, conservatives are up in arms over Biden’s latest abuses, and Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) quickly called him out for his utter disregard of freedom.
“All 9 million federal employees should consult with their doctor and make a personal, informed decision about taking the vaccine … Instead, Sleepy Joe says take it or else… You don’t lead by coercion. Biden has failed as a leader in every way.”

Arizona GOP Governor Doug Ducey also warned against the major governmental overreach that has become so characteristic of the Biden administration, though he also hinted that Biden may face some serious legal challenges in the future.
“This is exactly the kind of big government overreach we have tried so hard to prevent in Arizona — now the Biden-Harris administration is hammering down on private businesses and individual freedoms in an unprecedented and dangerous way … This will never stand up in court.” [Source: Fox News]
Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) had rather succinct commentary.
“This is absolutely unconstitutional.” [Source: Fox News]
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was also caught in yet another flip flop, as she directly stated that the federal government does not have a “role” in mandating vaccines.
“That’s not the role of the federal government; that is the role that institutions, private-sector entities, and others may take.” [Source: The White House]
Well, apparently Biden decided to reinvent the “role” of the federal government just as he reinvented the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Biden is also becoming rather aggressive in exerting his authority, and he strongly hinted that he would go after governors that refuse to abide by mask mandates in schools.
“Right now, local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salary and job. If they will not help us beat the pandemic, I will use my powers as president to get them out of the way.” [Source: OANN]
So, when it comes to governors who disagree over mask mandates (disagreement backed by science, nonetheless,), Biden decides the best response is to “get them out of the way?”
That’s a rather troubling statement for a president to make …
