    The Navy has approved nearly 1,000 separations for sailors who have refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Navy now has 924 separations over the COVID-19 vaccine, an increase of 40 over the previous week. The majority of separations are active-duty sailors and 66 reservists. All received honorable characterization of service, according to the sea service's weekly COVID-19 update. There are also 22 sailors who were separated in their first 180 days of service. The Navy cannot currently separate sailors who have filed a religious exemption for the COVID-19 vaccine due to a class-action lawsuit currently in the Middle District...

    Education Payroll Records show more than 400 school staff quit over the Government's vaccine mandate The Education Ministry said the mandate was included as a reason for resignation in the payroll system last year, however schools did not have to use the coding. As a result, it is unclear exactly how many staff members left because of the rule, the Ministry said. The Teaching Council said it received reports from employers that 225 teachers were dismissed for refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate...

    Israeli data on 16-39 year-olds adds fuel to campaigns against coerced jabs. Italian court strikes down mandate, and U.S. pilots accuse FAA of ignoring severe adverse reactions among pilots. ====================================================================== COVID-19 vaccination was "significantly associated" with a 25% jump in emergency medical services (EMS) for heart problems in 16-39 year-olds in Israel, whose vaccination rate is among the world's highest, according to a peer-reviewed study by MIT researchers. Published last week in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, the study found no association with COVID infections, however. "While not establishing causal relationships, the findings raise concerns regarding vaccine-induced undetected severe cardiovascular...
  • Second Appeals Court Backs Federal Employee Vaccine Mandate

    04/20/2022 5:19:13 PM PDT · by ducttape45 · 23 replies ^ | 4/19/2022 | Ian Smith
    A second appeals court has upheld the vaccine mandate for federal employees that was issued by President Biden last year. A panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously said that federal employees cannot sue over the vaccine mandate and must instead challenge the mandate through the usual appeal channels available to the federal workforce through the Civil Service Reform Act (CSRA). In other words, federal employees would have to face discipline for refusing to get the COVID vaccine before they could appeal the decision administratively. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals came to the same conclusion earlier...

    On Monday, the Biden Administration asked a federal appeals court to allow the reinstatement of the controversial vaccine mandate for all federal government workers. According to The Hill, the request to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit was made after the Louisiana-based court overturned a ruling by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown in Texas back in January that blocked the policy from being implemented. On Thursday, the Appeals Court ultimately determined by a 2-to-1 vote that Judge Brown’s ruling be reversed due to a lack of jurisdiction. The administration’s lawyers demanded that the court speed up its...

    Former President Donald Trump called on Republicans to make it unlawful for employers to fire unvaccinated employees if the GOP regains a majority in Congress after the November midterms. “One of the first things that we will do with our new Republican majority is to end every last covid mandate. They’re still around, it’s hard to believe,” Trump told a crowd in North Carolina on Saturday evening. “We will pass a bill making it illegal for any employer to interfere in personal health decisions or to fire employees simply for not having the vaccine.”

    After four months of competing proposals, vacuous debate and skyrocketing infections across the already widely jabbed German population, the German vaccine mandate has gone down in flames. In a stinging defeat for Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s coalition, 378 MPs voted against the bill, while 296 voted in favour. The plans had faced fierce opposition during a debate in the Bundestag on Thursday morning, with politicians from the AfD, Left Party and CDU/CSU lining up to criticise the bill. CONTINUE READING

    A majority of German lawmakers voted against vaccination requirements for those over the age of 60. Most Germans support making COVID-19 vaccination mandatory. Germany's Bundestag rejected a proposal to impose a vaccine mandate on those older than 60, which was supported by Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Health Minister Karl Lauterbach. The plan, however, had been opposed by members of Scholz's own governing coalition, the smaller neoliberal FDP. A simple majority was required for the bill's passage. Of 674 Bundestag MPs, some 378 voted against the vaccine mandate, while 296 supported it. "Today is the decision day," Lauterbach said ahead...

A federal judge in Cincinnati is stopping Air Force action against 18 servicemembers fighting the COVID-19 vaccine including 11 who currently or recently served at Wright-Patterson in Dayton.

    The chair of the House Democrats' campaign arm and some of the vulnerable members he's charged with re-electing are voicing support for a Republican-led mask mandate repeal bill. Why it matters: This would set up a potential showdown with the White House, which recently issued a one-month extension on the federal mask mandate for public transit and airplanes. The backing also illustrates how Democrats — especially those facing tough re-election fights — are trying to distance themselves from the pro-mask policies that defined their party for the past two years. "I'm completely over mask mandates," Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.),...

    Germany’s current plans to implement a compulsory vaccination regime is utterly unworkable, according to organisations who would be put in charge of enforcing it. Despite forced vaccination still being very much on the cards politically in Germany, a number of companies which would be forced to take responsibility for its enforcement have claimed that the current plans put in place by the government are utterly unworkable. Under the proposed measures, insurance companies in the Federal Republic would be made responsible for enforcing the regime, and would be told to send letters to all of their customers checking whether or not...

And I'm not going to do that here today." His announcement comes as concerns are growing over the new BA.2 omicron subvariant, which is expected to become the dominant...

    Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ripped the National Basketball Association (NBA) Tuesday after fining the Brooklyn Nets $50,000 for allowing an unvaccinated Kyrie Irving to step inside the locker room. “One final example for just how asinine this is: the NBA just fined Kyrie Irving $50,000 because [of] their rules, the rules of New York City,” Cruz said. “Here’s how idiotic it is: Kyrie Irving could go to a game, could sit in the stands not being vaccinated, which he did. That was perfectly okay. But if he actually plays, that’s not permissible.” “Because apparently in addition to Diet Coke...
