“At present, a person’s fully vaccinated status cannot expire and is unrelated to boosters.”
This last week it was the airlines. Today’s headlines point towards a spread to the aerospace unions:
Time will tell if there is more to this than just smoke. For what it is worth, I suspect it is going to take a lot of smoke, if not some fire, to get the “progressives” to turn back now that they are so close to their totalitarian prize.
To recap, an Executive Order mandates sweeping changes to all current and future contracts for those who do any business at all with the American National Government. Contractors must comply (i.e. force their employees to get the vaccine) in order to continue to be contactors. In contrast to the snail-like pace of the regulatory bodies, all contracting agencies jump into action and have contract modifications out for signature in a flash.
For some this is a no-brainer, their only customer is the USG. For others, this may be only a percentage of their bottom line but the threat (i.e., to future bail-outs, etc.) is not hidden at all. Most contractors make the reflexive move to comply…it is business you know. And compliance means not only the contractor to the USG but all of the subcontractors to the contractor to the USG must be in compliance also. And, barring any real pushback by We the People, all will be complete — the voluntary compliance by entire industries — in less than three months from the release of the EO. No checks, no balances.
(SIDE NOTE: It was also interesting to watch as contractors in Texas appeared to NOT take the lifeline extended by the Governor to at least give the appearance of pushing back for their employees. I suspect they take the implied threat — or stated threat behind closed doors — to not make waves seriously. The Governor will likely lose — seeing as Texas has already been informed by SCOTUS that they do not have standing in this Republic — so why would anyone on a corporate executive leadership team risk their phony-baloney jobs on such a ploy for liberty. But, I digress.)
So, in summary: Entire industries will be contractually obligated to ensure that their entire workforce and the entire workforce of everyone they subcontract to is fully compliant with whatever the President says is the current “fully vaccinated status” for COVID-19 as determined and adjusted frequently by the demonstrably un-scientific CDC, the puppet master whispering in his ear, or the free-floating, full-torso, vaporous apparition that comes out of his coloring book just after his afternoon nap every day.
Worse, this three-month trial run just showed how easy this really is for the President of the United States to take actual or functional control of entire industries and a major portion of all domestic industry with nothing less than a four-page executive order, a token “opposition” party, and a reliably incurious press. If allowed to stand, this EO and the path it has generated for future EOs will prove to be irreversible as well as insidiously infectious for the implementation of the entire progressive agenda…and more.
Have a good day, comrades.Published in
