Last night, President Dementia announced that all federal workers have to get a corona vaccine. So, let me begin this post by getting something off of my chest…

I really didn't want to be vindicated when I predicted this 20 years ago...

Okay. That’s done…. At least one of us feels better now.

My last post was a bit more “black pill” and less pragmatic advice than I intended, so I’m going to try to remedy that this time. So, without further ado, some practical advice for those of you, military or civilian, who are now being ordered to take the Pfizer BNT (BNT-162b) BioNTech vaccine. It goes by a number of names (which is not an accident) because this entire process has been designed to fool you. Here is what you need to know.

The FDA has not “fully licensed” the BioNTech vaccine. SecDef Lloyd Austin and all of the other mopes claiming that is nothing short of a demonstrable five-alarm, pants-on-fire lie. In order to be “fully-licensed” by the FDA, a biologic, which is the large category of medical products regulated under 21 USC §355 that includes traditional vaccines and other injectables such as this mRNA group, must go through a rather lengthy, multi-phase process; this includes completing multiple “well-controlled, clinical trials” in order to prove “safety and efficacy.” NONE of the current proposed injectables are anywhere near close to being through that process. To wit:

As you can see, the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is not scheduled to finish its Phase 3 trials until 2023. In fact, the Phase 3 trial will never be completed now and the data being trotted out by the FDA is garbage because Pfizer broke its own blinded, placebo-controlled trial open, unblinded its control group – i.e. it told all 44,000 people in the study who got the injectable and who got the placebo, and THEN it offered the now-exposed placebo group the option to take the vaccine. Yes, Pfizer intentionally abandoned its control group, turning the “trial” into nothing more than an open-label, observational study. The prestigious British Medical Journal had a series of editorials that might as well have been entitled, “WTF?!” I linked one of the kinder ones first, but the second is more detailed and shows you the FDA’s rank hypocrisy in just 60 days time: in October and December of 2020, the FDA in advisory committee meetings discussed the absolute necessity of placebo groups to properly assess safety and efficacy. Then Pfizer broke the placebo group trial and the FDA said: ”     .” If you go to the FDA’s own website they have loads of propaganda about how they hold vaccines to the “highest possible” safety standards, or how they use the “most rigorous” scientific methodollogy, blah blah blah. PppphhpphtttTT!

Complete, and total, Bull. Shit. The proof is in their lies about the “study” that they let the manufacturer bust and then did nothing. Worse than nothing, the FDA concocted one of the most transparent attempts to shield a pharmaceutical company from liability while also attempting to skirt the law and call a vaccine “fully-licensed” when the FDA actually extended its Emergency Use Authorization. There is nothing even approaching “fully-licensed” about the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. You don’t have to take my word, however, you can take the FDA’s.

This is the FDA’s own words from the infamous Aug. 23, 2021 Memo that SecDef Austin has relied upon to claim that there is now a fully-licensed FDA vaccine.

[F]DA is reissuing the August 12, 2021 letter of authorization in its entirety with revisions incorporated to clarify that the EUA will remain in place for the PfizerBioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for the previously-authorized indication and uses[.]

Yes, folks, that gets the dreaded, bold, underline, and italics treatment. The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is still under Emergency Use Authorization. Under federal law, individuals to whom an EUA product is administered must be informed “of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.” 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III). That’s what federal law actually requires if you are offered an EUA product. That federal law is the distillation of what came out of the Nuremberg Trials of the Nazi Doctors: it is a war crime or crime against humanity to force upon an unwilling or unwitting subject an experimental medical treatment. Period.

The order to take the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is an illegal, immoral, and unconscionable order. QED.

Article 92 doesn’t punish every violation of every order. Indeed, soldiers, sailors, airmen, cost guardsmen, and Marines are all taught that they have a duty to disobey illegal orders, such as was given by Lt Calley at My Lai, or any number of other circumstances. This is the soldier’s dilemma. On the one hand, we tell them that the Nazi defense of “just following orders” is no shield for them, yet we also tell them that the well-established principle of military law is that “orders are presumed lawful” and that they “disobey at their peril.” Quite frankly, it’s a garbage “Catch-22” aspect of military law that only those who have lived and struggled under understand. The explanation of Article 92, however, clearly states that “(c). Lawfulness. A general order or regulation is lawful unless it is contrary to the Constitution, the laws of the United States, or lawful superior orders or for some other reason is beyond the authority of the person issuing it.” Manual for Court-Martial, ¶16.c.(1)(c). The order to take an EUA vaccine is contrary (at least) to the laws of the United States and – by explicit statute – beyond the authority of the SecDef. Only the President can waive a service member’s right to informed consent and force them to take an EUA vaccine – 10 USC §1107a is a statute passed explicitly to cover this situation. It’s title is “Emergency Use Products.” Read it yourself. Here’s the applicable language of the first paragraph:

In the case of the administration of a product authorized for emergency use under section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to members of the armed forces, the condition described in section 564(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) of such Act and required under paragraph (1)(A) or (2)(A) of such section 564(e), designed to ensure that individuals are informed of an option to accept or refuse administration of a product, may be waived only by the President only if the President determines, in writing, that complying with such requirement is not in the interests of national security.

The SecDef knows this – his spokespeople even mentioned the statute and its requirements in July 2021. I know the DoD knows this for certain I know because I helped litigate against them in Doe v. Rumsfeld when they failed to comply with the other version of this statute, 10 USC §1107, for Investigation New Drugs (INDs) – which the anthrax vaccine was. That’s why the judge in Doe v Rumsfeld shut down the program in 2003. The DoD refused to comply with 10 USC §1107. This is the same shit all over again. No President wants to take the political heat of vitiating service member’s informed consent – and what could happen if a bunch of service members get sick or die. Every single one of those would be his political and personal responsibility. And if we know one thing about this Administration – or any recent political administration, in fact – is that NO POLITICIAN or LEADER accepts responsibility any more. That is the nature of what our government has become – they’ve been given near absolute legal immunity and no one ever accepts responsibility. That’s what it means to be in government, as compared to the rest of us.

The bait-and-switch by the FDA – which SecDef Austin is knowingly leaning on – is this: in the same letter in which the FDA extends the EUA for the Pfizer BNT vax, it also fully-approves a completely different vaccine, made by a Pfizer subsidiary in Germany, called COMIRNATY. So, there IS a fully-licensed vaccine – it just isn’t the Pfizer BNT vax. So why doesn’t the FDA just have people take Comirnaty? Here’s where the switcheroo happens: the FDA makes the astounding claim that two “legally distinct” vaccines are really “the same” and therefore “interchangeable.” For those who don’t know much about the manufacturing, inspection, and regulatory process for vaccines, this may seem like, “Meh. What’s the diff?” The “diff” is that the FDA has never, ever, ever allowed done this because it’s not legal. Every lot and batch of a biologic has to be tested for safety, potency, sterility; every manufacturing line, every vat, every condenser, every aspect of that process has to be inspected and certified safe. Injecting a live virus or other biologic into people’s bodies comes with unfathomable risks and the regulations governing all of it, like Navy pilots say about the NATOPS Manual, are written in blood. It is unconscionable for a regulator to claim that, on the one hand, there is a licensed vaccine – but WHOA! Whaddya know? We don’t have any! We’re plum out of that approved vaccine! So we’ll just slide this other one – WHICH WE ALSO HAVE SAID IS AN EUA – in its place.”

Here’s what’s really going on. The current EUA legal schema provides for near complete immunity (Ha! get it?) for vaccine manufacturers. Pharma companies simply cannot be sued for harms that come from their product when it is given the magic EUA designation by the FDA. Once a vaccine is genuinely “fully-licensed”, however, they lose their liability shield. THEN they can be sued for harms caused by their vaccine. What the FDA is trying to do is simultaneously allow Pfizer to keep its legal shield from lawsuits, yet evade the EUA requirement of informed consent. This the worst example of legal “have your cake and eat it too” that the FDA has ever tried to pull. This is, literally, unprecedented. And why would the FDA do this for Pfizer, you ask?

I don’t know. Maybe we should ask former FDA Commissioner (2017-19) Scott Gottleib, who now sits on the Board of Directors for Pfizer. Or maybe we could ask Trump’s guy, former FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn (2019-21), who now sits on the Board of Directors for the VC company that formed Moderna. Or maybe we should ask the FDA regulators who now have managed to acquire legal, financial interests in the products they regulate. NOTHING TO SEE HERE!! We’re all supposed to pretend that these things are all completely above board. I have listened to my Leftist friends for years scream about how we can’t trust Big Pharma, how Big Corporations are EVUHL!, how the profit-motive distorts everything, but now? All screaming at the top of their lungs to just “get the shot.”

A final note – first you, now your kids. LA County has already announced a mandate for school children, no sooner than Gropey Joe got done whispering his way through another staged presser in which no questions can be asked, nothing can be said to disrupt the Narrative. God forbid the Media ask a question that might make our Fearless Leader have to think on his feet because we all know he’s likely to start mumbling inanities and blabbering nonsensically. Hell, they now lie and tell us it’s a “stutter” – I’ve listened to that lying, plagiarizing, piece of walking bullshit for 40 years in the public eye. Watch him in video of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings and explain to me where is his frigging stutter? Where was his stutter during his time as VP for Obama?

So, I invite you all to do the only thing we can do if we are to remain a Free People: mass civil disobedience. It was the only thing that got blacks the right to vote. The battles for civil rights in this country always come at a cost. Ask the people who marched in Birmingham and got the firehoses and the dogs loosed on them. Yes, they (the Command, the DoD, the government) are going to make your life miserable. I promise you they will. The Nazis didn’t take resumes or post applications for the gestapo – they just created opportunities for the worst of the jackboots to self-identify. Those officers and other government officials sneering and screaming at you to get the jab? Yeah, just take names. Record them on your soul and for posterity. There will eventually be an accounting – there always is. These people are angling for positions. Many commanders will simply do this out of blind obedience and, even better yet, competition. I guarantee you that behind the scenes commanders are told they will be judged by vaccination rates. That’s all the government needs to do to make the lab rats comply: put that cheese in the middle and some commanders will race to be first to vaccinate everybody. That’s what careerism does to a military force.

But have no doubt, you are in the right. This is an illegal mandate. Our government has become obsessed with everyone getting this vaccine, a vaccine against the common cold. Yes, this particular (CCP, genetically-modified) coronavirus is deadly, no doubt. But we always have said we couldn’t vaccinate against the common cold and this is from the same family of virus – coronaviruses. So now we’re chasing it with vaccines that were made against a variant that doesn’t even exist any more. And now it’s boosters at 4 months, down from 8 in just a few weeks. This will not end well for those running to get the jab. Your immune system is the best protection you have, as is your good health, but our government shut down the places where you can actually get healthier – gyms – deemed them “non-essential” in fact. While liquor stores and other frivolities were deemed “essential.” (And don’t get me wrong, I don’t think liquor stores should be shut down, either. I’m a freedom guy). But it is awfully weird who got deemed essential against a virus that we know attacks the very old and the very fat.

Stay fit. Stay strong. Do not cave – link arms with your brothers and sisters, and bring them in the boat. It is the only way we will stop this and rise above it. Early Christians were persecuted for their faith. Our forefathers built a Nation dedicated to allowing people to practice freely – of any faith – and now one virus has brought it to its knees. This is our generation’s opportunity to restore civil rights, Liberty, for our generation and our children. If they can order you to take this, they own you. Make no mistake about it. You are cattle if you go quietly to this.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
