Navy SEALs Told They're Undeployable If They Don't Get COVID-19 Vaccine - Lawyers | 28 Sept 2021 | Navy SEALs have been informed by their superiors that they won’t be deployed if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine, even if they're granted a religious or medical exemption, according to lawyers representing the elite special operations troops and a document seen by The Epoch Times. "What they've been told is if they apply for a religious accommodation, they will no longer be deployable," R. Davis Younts, who is representing seven SEALs and is in talks to take on approximately 20 others, told The Epoch Times. Timothy Parlatore, whose firm represents a number of SEALs and other service members concerned about the vaccines, said his clients have also been given a similar ultimatum. Some SEALs have even been sent home mid-deployment for refusing a vaccine, one of his clients told him.

Gov. DeSantis to investigate Facebook for alleged violations of election laws

Gov. DeSantis to investigate Facebook for alleged violations of election laws --DeSantis has directed Florida's secretary of state to look into the matter | 27 Sept 2021 | Gov. Ron DeSantis has directed Florida's secretary of state's office to launch a probe into whether Facebook has violated any of the state's election laws through its program granting purported preferential treatment to some candidates. The governor pointed to The Wall Street Journal's bombshell report from earlier this month regarding internal documents about the social media giant's XCheck program, which Facebook itself admits grants a second level of review for high-profile users like politicians - but not every candidate in every race. "It's no secret that Big Tech censors have long enforced their own rules inconsistently," DeSantis said in a statement announcing the move on Monday. "If this new report is true, Facebook has violated Florida law to put its thumb on the scale of numerous state and local races."

Biden administration 'strongly opposes' honorable discharge for service members who refuse COVID-19 vaccine

Biden administration 'strongly opposes' honorable discharge for service members who refuse COVID-19 vaccine | 22 Sept 2021 | The Biden administration has come out against an amendment to the defense budget that would prevent the Pentagon from dishonorably discharging service members who refuse to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The Office of Management and Budget said in a statement Tuesday that the administration "strongly opposes" the amendment, arguing that if it's implemented, it would "detract from readiness and limit a commander's options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination." ...Tennessee Republican Rep. Mark Green, a veteran, has led the push to prevent the military from discharging service members who refuse the vaccine with any distinction other than honorable via the National Defense Authorization Act. "I am disgusted that the Biden administration is trying to gut my amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that prevents anything but an honorable discharge for servicemembers who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine," Green told the Washington Examiner in a statement.

'I cannot practice, I cannot play': Tennis ace ends season, admits he regrets taking Covid vaccine after feeling 'violent pain' | 25 Sept 2021 | A tennis star has admitted he does not know when he will return to the sport and fears he may have to bring forward his retirement because of health problems he says he has suffered since taking the Pfizer Covid vaccine. World number 73 Jeremy Chardy has become the latest tennis star to speak out against vaccines after experiencing what he describes as violent, near-paralyzing pains across his body since taking the jab, warning that there is "no hindsight" once people have received the treatment. The 34-year-old says he his priority is to "take care of myself" after seeing two doctors and taking tests in a bid to deduce why he has found physical exertion so difficult since being vaccinated. "Suddenly I cannot train, I cannot play," the 2017 Davis Cup winner told AFP, explaining that he received the jab between this summer's Olympics, when he was beaten by gold medalist Alex Zverev in the quarterfinals, and the US Open, when he lost in straight sets in the first round to Matteo Berrettini at the end of August.

Mayorkas says Haitian migrants under Del Rio bridge were not tested for COVID-19 --DHS secretary said migrants got sick, but not with COVID 'to my knowledge' | 25 Sept 2021 | Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Friday told reporters that the nearly 15,000 migrants who were camped out under the Del Rio bridge in squalid conditions last week were not tested for COVID-19, and he does not know if anyone got sick with the contagious virus while there. Mayorkas was asked about the Biden administration's use of Title 42 public health protections that are deployed to quickly expel migrants who have come to the border, using the COVID-19 pandemic as a rationale. Mayorkas stressed that it was a public health measure to protect the population and the migrants themselves and not an immigration measure. When asked how many of the predominantly Haitian migrants who were camped out under the bridge in packed conditions tested positive for the virus, Mayorkas said he didn't know.

Taliban hang body in public; signal return to past tactics

Taliban hang body in public; signal return to past tactics | 25 Sept 2021 | The Taliban hanged a dead body from a crane parked in a city square in Afghanistan on Saturday in a gruesome display that signaled the hard-line movement's return to some of its brutal tactics of the past. Taliban officials initially brought four bodies to the central square in the western city of Herat, then moved three of them to other parts of the city for public display, said Wazir Ahmad Seddiqi, who runs a pharmacy on the edge of the square. Taliban officials announced that the four were caught taking part in a kidnapping earlier Saturday and were killed by police, Seddiqi said. Ziaulhaq Jalali, a Taliban-appointed district police chief in Herat, said later that Taliban members rescued a father and son who had been abducted by four kidnappers after an exchange of gunfire.

Court sets hearing for Wednesday on New York City schools vaccine mandate

Court sets hearing for Wednesday on New York City schools vaccine mandate | 25 Sept 2021 | A requirement for New York City school teachers and staff to get vaccinated for COVID-19 was temporarily blocked by a U.S. appeals court just days before it was to take effect, but the court on Saturday set a hearing on the matter for next week. Mayor Bill de Blasio last month set Monday as the deadline for 148,000 staff members of the largest U.S. school system to get at least one dose of a vaccine under a mandate. But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit late on Friday blocked the deadline by granting a temporary injunction to a small group of public school teachers and paraprofessionals who are challenging the mandate, which does not allow for weekly testing as an alternative. The court on Saturday scheduled a hearing on the dispute for Wednesday, following a request by the city for an expedited hearing.

New-onset and relapsed kidney disease reported following COVID-19 vaccination | 26 Sept 2021 | New-Onset and Relapsed Kidney Disease Following COVID-19 Vaccination: A Systematic Review - Vaccines 2021, 9. By Henry H.L. Wu, Philip A. Kalra, and Rajkumar Chinnadurai Abstract: Introduction: The introduction of COVID-19 vaccination programs has become an integral part of the major strategy to reduce COVID-19 numbers worldwide. New-onset and relapsed kidney disease have been reported following COVID-19 vaccination, sparking debate on whether there are causal associations. How these vaccines achieve an immune response to COVID-19 and the mechanism in turn of how this triggers kidney pathology remains unestablished. We describe the results of a systematic review for new-onset and relapsed kidney disease following COVID-19 vaccination. Methods: A systematic literature search of published data up until 31st August 2021 was completed through the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta Analyses (PRISMA) guide-line. Research articles reporting new onset or relapsed kidney disease in adult patients (>18 years) following COVID-19 vaccination were included for qualitative review. Only full-text articles published in the English language were selected for review.

Italy Orders Companies Not to Pay Unvaccinated Workers

Italy Orders Companies Not to Pay Unvaccinated Workers | 24 Sept 2021 | The Italian government has passed a decree applying to both the private and public sector ordering companies to withhold pay from workers who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine. The decree mandates that all employees get the vaccine "green pass," which led to questions about what would happen to the millions of Italians who remain unvaccinated. The government is attempting to avoid potential legal action by directing companies not to fire the unvaccinated, but simply to not pay them while telling employees not to show up to work under threat of being fined if they do so. "Instead, they should be considered to be on an unjustified absence and have their wages or salaries withheld," writes Ken Macon. "Those found to be working without a vaccine passport could be punished with fines of up to Eur 1,500. Additionally, the government said it would not cater for the test costs for those who would prefer not to take the vaccine."

CDC Allows COVID-19 Vaccine Booster for Group That Advisory Panel Rejected

CDC Allows COVID-19 Vaccine Booster for Group That Advisory Panel Rejected | 24 Sept 2021 | The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) overrode its vaccine advisory panel early Friday and said people as young as 18 who have certain jobs or living situations may get a COVID-19 vaccine booster. The move means millions of more Americans may get a booster shot, even though experts during a meeting said there was not enough data to support boosters for many younger people. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, a Biden nominee, decided to reject the expert panel's guidance and allow anybody between the ages of 18 and 64 who are at "increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting" to get a booster of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. That same recommendation was voted down 9-6 during the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Thursday. ACIP offers advice to the CDC on vaccines.

BLM organizer says de Blasio vaccine mandate weaponized against black community

BLM organizer says de Blasio vaccine mandate weaponized against black community | 21 Sept 2021 | The co-founder of New York's Black Lives Matter chapter said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's citywide vaccine mandate is targeting the black community and creating conditions akin to segregation. "Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated," Chivona Newsome said during a Monday protest in New York City. "So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?" Newsome warned that her group could respond with an "uprising" similar to those that followed the death of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. "We're putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social distance practice. Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat. That is a promise," she said. "The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism."
