This won’t hurt a bit

President Biden lurched a little more totalitarian last week, mandating that staff at companies with 100 or more employers must be vaccinated against COVID or be tested weekly. (Except for Members of Congress, who apparently have a right to privacy and can’t be forced to be vaccinated.) The announcement was made during a troubling speech in which the President showed disdain for the unvaccinated, blaming them for clogging up hospitals, prolonging the pandemic and causing business and schools closures. Having said previously that he would not mandate vaccines, the President now says that his patience with those who won’t get vaccinated is “wearing thin.”

The President also expressed his “disappointment” with a number of governors who vowed to fight the mandate saying he would use his power to “get them out of the way.” Well, that’s not crazy talk at all… Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went to bat for workers who will face a difficult choice. He also asked a reasonable question: If cases are  300% more than they were this time last year, doesn’t that suggest that vaccines might not be helping much

Townhall believes that such a mandate will “sink in a legal quagmire,” but the President said any detractors could “have at it” in challenging the mandate, insisting that The Science and the public is on his side. Mad Christians who are facing the prospect of a mandated vaccination may be interested in a rec sent to us by Annie. It is from LifeSite and contains many ideas for how to go about applying for an exemption

This may be more gaslighting from our leaders, a game of chicken to see who will flinch first. So know what you believe and why it’s important. Raise your voice in prayer and ask your heavenly Father for wisdom and strength. And know you are not alone.

Elections, voting and ballots. Oh my!

The quest for integrity in elections continues in the US, with voting anomalies still being investigated around the country. PJ Media reported that almost 15 million mail-in ballots for the 2020 election are unaccounted for. 

The desire of Democrats to increase their ability to stay in power is evidenced in recent bills. Senator Ted Cruz stayed up very late recently to defeat the HR-1 bill, which pushed for lots of sketchy things, such as ballot harvesting and impulsive re-districting. The new HR-4 bill being considered by Senate appears to be the same thing  but with a coat of paint. Cleta Mitchell at The Federalist outlines why it is dangerous.

Texas Democrats who ran away to Washington to avoid Governor Abbott’s special session have returned to Houston. The session was to vote on Voter ID laws, with the bill now passing to the Senate.

The Supreme Court has stuck down President Biden’s eviction moratorium with howls of protest coming from the wokest of Congressmen— while they continue to collect rent themselves.
