Liberty lawsuit: Republican Party to sue Biden over vaccine mandates

gif ad for must read alaska donations

The federal employee unions are agreeing to President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates for all federal employees, but the Republican National Committee is having none of it — not for federal workers or the private workforce.

On Thursday, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced the party will sue the Biden Administration over his executive orders that require most American workers to get vaccinated.

“Joe Biden told Americans when he was elected that he would not impose vaccine mandates. He lied,” McDaniel said. “Now small businesses, workers, and families across the country will pay the price.”

“Like many Americans, I am pro-vaccine and anti-mandate,” McDaniel said. “Many small businesses and workers do not have the money or legal resources to fight Biden’s unconstitutional actions and authoritarian decrees, but when his decree goes into effect, the RNC will sue the administration to protect Americans and their liberties.”

Earlier Thursday, the president unveiled that he is forcing companies with more than 100 employees to require workers be vaccinated against Covid-19 or face penalties from the federal government of $14,000 per violation.

“This is not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love. My job as president is to protect all Americans,” Biden said.

Alaska District 14 Republicans, which is the Eagle River area of Anchorage, issued a statement that makes it clear the president has overstepped his authority:

“Our forefathers, the founders of this country, fled the tyrannical governments of the known world at the time. They hacked this country out of the wilderness. They became landowners, established farms and small businesses to realize the American dream. They wrote the US Constitution to establish the laws to run a just government of the people, by the people, and for the people.What we witnessed today out of Biden’s mouth, reflects the tyranny of those governments the American people fled to establish liberty and justice for all Americans. With the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks only two days away he now moves to enslave the American People to the Tyranny we came here to escape. The Veterans that have served since 9/11 now feel the same emotional betrayal our Vietnam Bothers and Sisters felt.”

The entire executive order can be read at this White House link.

  • Inoculate against COVID 46.

  • I wish everybody would quit playing politics. The shot mandates while good for America are an effective rope-a-dope for biden’s mishandling of the Afghanistan evacuation. But Americans have a short memory and that’s been their downfall.

    • The shot mandates are happening in realtime, as Delta surges across the country. The afgan mess is 20 years in the making. Unless you want to paint a picture that Biden initiated COVID in 2019, knowing he would be president in 2021, and blah blah blah, see? It all makes sense! If you check your brain at the door.

    • “Among all individuals, vaccinated and unvaccinated, the global survival rate is 99.2%. Among those under 70, the survival rate is 99.97%. The survival rate for children is 99.995%.”
      .
      0nly a compliant fool thinks we need forced vaccinations or any other mandates to combat what is essentially a bad flu.
      The at-risk should take precautions but the rest of us need to get back to normal.

      • Exactly

    • Time to release the murder hornets again. Why do the lawyers always win? Mandating a shot is one thing but hate speech against those that don’t get a shot is not good for America.

  • So we’re having a little tit for tat are we?

    Well then, the Conservative/Pro Gun movement better be ready for the following: A liberal State will outlaw guns with more than, oh, say, a six-inch barrel or a six-round magazine (yeah, six is such a popular number this week), and then enable any private citizen, even those without standing, to sue the manufacturer and the seller of the gun, the provider of the ammunition, anyone who promotes such items, anyone who transports such items either knowingly or unknowingly, any range owner, and any member of the NRA, as well as their dogs. Oh, did I mention that the plaintiff will be able to collect fees plus a nice little bounty for their efforts, too?

    For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7.

    Of course, the RNC will be badly outgunned on this little peashooter of a lawsuit. It’s going nowhere, but maybe they’ll at least be able to squeeze enough contributions out it from the feckless to cover their legal costs.

    • That is why the PLCAA was passed. They were already trying to do that

    • So why can’t we sue the manufacturers of the vaccine if it’s proved they caused harm?

    • How much of what you wrote infringes upon the right to keep and bear arms that we have had the right to have, uninfringed, on this continent since 1689?

      • About as much as the recent Texas law infringes on a woman’s right to abortion, which they have had since 1973. Maybe you’re not catching my drift, sir.

        • Nope. God created the unborn and they are imbued with rights to life. Why are you against that?

    • Please show me exactly how a mandate is a law. Didn’t think you could. Show me in the constitution where the President has ultimate powers to force people to do anything he/ she mandates. Didn’t think so, move along Washington state citizen. Please give us your name so we can turn you in for voter and PFD fraud

  • Hopefully they know they can’t just go into court and cry freedom and liberty without knowing what those words mean. About the only thing worse than infringing upon liberties and rights is not knowing and understanding what liberties and rights are and what they mean.
    .
    There are numerous SCOTUS rulings spanning decades and centuries that hold states have the authority to quarantine and mandate vaccinations, none of these cases extend that authority to the Federal government. The 10th Amendment is the lynch pin granting that authority to the states and keeps that power from the Federal government.

    • The court of public opinion is the only avenue for vaccine opponents. It’s been that way forever. Peer review destroys them. Courts acknowledge the greater good. And decent lawmakers, at least those who have the nation’s interests at heart, follow the science.

      • George, Decent Lawmakers? Are you talking about Pelosi / Schumer? They follow the Political Science, for if they were to follow the real Science this Jab would be one of many treatments offered.

      • Judges take an oath to defend the US Constitution as a prerequisite to receive a public stipend from public trust funds. The “public good” is not the laid-down, declared law of this land; the expressed rights of the sovereign people as the US Constitution of the guaranteed republic is the law of this land.

  • 57.3% of Americans believe significant or very significant fraud was involved in the 2020 elections. Why is this important? Looks the graphs and numbers from America Project’s polling over several months. There is an increasing number of Americans joining the cause. The truth is on our side and it’s only a matter of time.

    Press release from The America Project on the latest polling. Time to start the Nov 2020 election audit in Alaska! Absolutely no way ballot measure 2 won. There were other issues too. Let’s prove or disprove.

    • Yes, there was huge fraud – to wit, the Big Lie promulgated by the GOP that the election was stolen. You know it wasn’t, yet you continue to push The Lie because you lost, and you know it. But you just can’t stand to face up to that ugly truth.

      The white majority in the country is shrinking, and eventually no amount of lies, deceit, or Gerrymandering will be able to keep it in power. The sooner the GOP faces up to this fact, the sooner they will be able to regain and hold legitimate power.

      If it’s the truth you are seeking, well, you aren’t doing a very good job.

      • Wait didn’t Hillary say the election was stolen first?

        • I don’t know and I don’t care. She conceded, and did not continue to spread a lie after she lost. Trump plays dirty, and someday he will have to pay the price. That day can’t come soon enough.

          • Actually Clinton spent years claiming the election was stolen from her.
            She was still claiming it up to the 2020 election telling candidates that “You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,”

      • Better check in on the Arizona Forensic Audit, and the canvassing reports. You Dems fear the canvassing more than the audits because they prove voting fraud more easily. Keep asking for more Seattleite

      • Why are you not a proponant of securing rights rather than cheering bully wanna-bes from unconstitutionally taking them?

      • You sound pretty racist and shallow if you ask me. LBJ really put you guys in the wrong headspace when thinking about how to get rid of racial prejudices, racial limitations, and racial tensions. Do you realize the amount of asian, latino, and black conservative voters is increasing, not diminishing? Isn’t that a good sign? It means the “open minded, compassionate, and tolerant left” calling people racial slurs for wanting less government and more independence isn’t working anymore. Oh, and the sadist thing for you is that all of that pandering and treating minorities like clueless lost puppies isn’t allowing you to be so self righteous. Bummer. Although, I’m sure you won’t stop. You will just keep reading conservative perspectives not to understand the perspective, but to “dog” it and dodge its logic.
        ****
        Don’t worry, I’ve turned off notifications of your response. I’ve gone back and forth with you before and it isn’t worth it for either one of us. You have allowed yourself to become just a hateful liberal bot.

    • Ya, the way the numbers evolved over time until ballot measure 2 won smelled really fishy to me too. It fit the same patterns we saw in swing states. We still have dominion systems running our elections too. I’ve emailed our lt governor and just got a form response.
      ***
      The reaction from the elections office about Bronson’s campaign monitoring the counting really smelled bad too. Are they living under a rock? People don’t have confidence anymore and wanted to make sure no shenanigans are taking place. That shouldn’t be so “alarming”. Under no circumstance should people be in the office with ballots and not be monitored, especially in this climate. Do they want to restore faith in the elections or not? And there is no reason why Alaska should be using a company that will sue for defamation if you criticize them and it shouldn’t take a week to count votes in Alaska. Their excuses are 50+ years old. That’s bs. I am from Wyoming and my mom volunteered at the poll. Wyoming has the same tiny communities in remote areas and a much smaller budget and still managed to do overnight counting, especially for absentee ballots. Those were counted ahead of time so that they could check if someone already voted when they came into the polls. Faster counting is more accurate, not less accurate.
      ****
      Regardless I want ballot measure 2 put back on the ballot as soon as it is eligible.

  • Nobody is giving one rational reason on why not to get vaccinated. We are Alaskans we live off the federal government. Why such anger when they ask for something in return?

    • No they give you a lot of reasons on here, none of it is factual or based on science but is mostly made up propaganda. But they still give them to you mind you. I like the one when they were saying that Africa’s healthcare system knows better than ours does. Then there was the one that said if you’re going to get the shot that it will kill you in about 5 years. And lastly the oldie but a goodie, they said if you get the shot, you will spread the disease faster than someone who hasn’t got the shot. It’s sheer madness and while it is entertaining, it’s scary that some people actually believe this stuff.

      • The very small death rate statistics speak for themselves. That is both factual and based on science. If you are elderly, frail and fraught with co-morbidities, isolate, and avoid contact with potential carriers. For the rest of the population, practice good hygiene, exercise, eat well, and live your life. There are good therapeutics available if you do contact this or any other virus. If you already had Covid, you have more antibodies than the vaccinated. They should make a “I had Covid” card so you can work, travel and eat out in those places with stupid draconian policies.

        • What about the kids, teachers, cops and fireman dieing here from it?

      • Here you go…this is from the Boston Herald…go read it…oh, that’s right, we give you all manner of factual information based on real evidence, government statistics, medical studies, inadvertent empirical studies like the African ivermectin situation but you just ignore it all and repeat your same misinformation that only your opinions are based in reality…
        .
        “ More than 4,000 fully vaccinated people in Massachusetts tested positive for the coronavirus last week, a daily average of more than 600 people as breakthrough infections continue to rise each week amid the delta variant.

        The rate of breakthrough infections week-over-week starting five weeks ago surged 64%, then the following week went up 20%, the next week jumped by 25%, the subsequent week increased by 20%, and in the last week climbed by 23%.

        Breakthrough cases in Massachusetts are making up about one-third of the state’s overall cases.”

      • Go get another poke Greg. You’re overdue for the next round of obedience to Big Brother.

    • Let me help you with that. The vax is experimental, and the proof of it being untested is the number deaths associated with those who got it. Something like 70% of pregnant women who got it spontaneously aborted their babies. Kids are dying from enlarge hearts and blood clots. Older folk are succumbing to the same. And there is absolutely no testing or proof that mRNA does not alter your DNA and cause all sorts of health problems in the future. Add to that, my body my choice, and if your vax is protecting you, then why do you care if someone else is not vaxxed?

      • Yeah but the only problem is that everything you just said is wrong, and can’t be verified anywhere (not on FOX, not with my doctor, etc)

        • Prove it Jon.

        • VAERS (CDC) statistics now break down kids 12-17. 82 have died from the vaccine, 412 0-17 are listed as dying of COVID (data.gov.cdc). According to Johns Hopkins and NBC News, children under 17 dying of COVID have comorbidities like Leukemia and treatment resistant asthma. NBC reports that over half have two or more severe comorbidities.
          If your doctor injects bias and politics into your healthcare, you should find a new doctor.

        • Jon Alderson, where is proof that Tamra Nygard is incorrect? Fox News? Seriously? Your Doctor, who is she / he? Please be more specific. The fact is tens of thousands have died as a direct result of the jab, also hundreds of thousands have had severe adverse reactions. This information is readily available , but hey when did reported facts sway a party hack?
          Good Job Tamra! Don’t let the turkeys get you down!

          • Where do you get your information?

      • Amen sister..

      • Completely false information.
        The vaccine is NOT experimental.
        People die from getting COVID, not from getting vaccinated.

        • From the NIH website: “Experimental coronavirus vaccine highly effective… Researchers have been working to develop a safe and effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. One vaccine candidate, called mRNA-1273, is being developed by researchers at NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the biotech company Moderna, Inc. Early results showed it can trigger an immune response against the virus without serious side effects.”
          .
          So the NIH says it’s experimental…I’m going with their definition rather than yours.

        • Catherine, you are delusional and/or a liar.
          .
          These jabs (they are NOT vaccines, as they confer NO immunity whatsoever to the virus) are not only STILL experimental in nature, but they will STILL be experimental two and three years FROM NOW, as it takes many years for the full ramifications and possible consequences of any vaccines (which again, these are NOT) to make themselves fully known and understood. It has NOTHING to do with what some self-serving governmental agency declares, prematurely or otherwise. It is, in fact, “the science”.
          .
          Your lies are simply the parroting of corporate media propaganda. Do you honestly not realize how simpleminded and brain-dead blindly repeating those corporate media talking points makes you appear?

          • Jeff,
            We’ve already been over this and since you are still recovering from covid I will chalk it up to the covid fog that many get.
            Anyways, here are some definitions of immunity…the thing that the jab or the poke, or whatever it is you want to call the vaccine actually does.
            .
            immunity The relative ability to resist infection or the effects of any toxic or dangerous substance. Immunity may be inherent or acquired as a result of prior infection or immunization. Active immunity involves the production of ANTIBODIES. Passive immunity is that conferred by antibodies derived from another person or animal and injected or received across the placenta or in the breast milk. Passive immunity is much less persistent than active immunity. Collins Dictionary of Medicine © Robert M. Youngson 2004, 2005
            .
            immunity resistance to foreign ANTIGENS such as a virus. Immunity can be either active, in which the body produces its own IMMUNE RESPONSE after exposure to a pathogen or a vaccine, or passive in which ready-made antibodies are supplied in a serum (or obtained naturally from the mother). Collins Dictionary of Biology, 3rd ed. © W. G. Hale, V. A. Saunders, J. P. Margham 2005
            .
            immunity (ɪˈmjuːnɪtɪ)
            n, pl -ties
            1. (Biology) the ability of an organism to resist disease, either through the activities of specialized blood cells or antibodies produced by them in response to natural exposure or inoculation (active immunity) or by the injection of antiserum or the transfer of antibodies from a mother to her baby via the placenta or breast milk (passive immunity). See also acquired immunity, natural immunity.

            im·mu·ni·ty (ĭ-myo͞o′nĭ-tē)
            Resistance of the body to infection by a disease-causing agent, such as a bacterium or virus. Immunity is usually provided by the body’s own immune system, which is determined by the action of one’s genes. It may also be brought about by having had a disease or infection in the past and recovering from it. Immunity can also be induced artificially, especially by vaccination.

            immunity
            1. Resistance to disease.
            2. The body’s effective resistance against a diseasecausing organism. Immunity can be innate or acquired by producing antibodies. See antibodies, antigens. Dictionary of Unfamiliar Words by Diagram Group Copyright © 2008 by Diagram Visual Information Limited.

            .
            By the various definitions of both vaccine and immunity we can see that the covid 19 vaccines are indeed vaccines and they provide a measure of immunity to covid 19.

        • Thank you Catherine

    • That comment is disgusting on so many levels I don’t know where to start.
      How about the fact that many of us do NOT “live off the government,” rather we are desperately trying to get as far away from that as possible. And we are already paying in blood (some literally) for the “privilege” of simply making a living, or living at all (see, for instance, taxpayer funding of abortion and mutilation of confused children, teens and adults).
      The rational reasons for refusing the “free” experimental gene therapy are numerous, and easy to find articulated, if you actually want to know.
      Blech.

      • Mmd.. disgusting? Explain..

      • You sound crazy

    • I’ve had covid. Why would I need a shot? Not vaccine…shot.

    • Yep, that’s what happens when you willingly give up your liberty for perceived safety. Don’t be surprised when they take away your liberty.

      • Look around. It’s already happened.

  • Excellent, stand up and don’t be sheep, Marxism is an evil thing.

  • “Kamala Harris on Pro-Life Texas Law: U.S. Stronger When People Make Health Choices ‘Without Government Interference’ “.

    Can kill a baby without interference, but if one doesn’t want a shot, the full force of the dictator’s government is upon You…..

  • I do not believe a word that come Joe Stalin-Biden’s facial orifice, nor that of any federal agency. Now when I contact the congressional place holders I tell them they no longer have my consent, and I do not recognize their authority, only their criminality. I suggest all of start doing the same. In case any one takes offense, it is only suggestion. But please let them hear your voice, too few do.

  • I’ve had the chinese lung flu. Why would I need a shot?

    • Also why do the people on this blog (except you) not call this by it’s proper name the CHINA VIRUS?

      • Control the language, control the message.

  • “We are going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers.”

    If individuals are vaccinated, do they need protection? Doesn’t the vaccine protect against the virus?

    • It is a scam. If you or I tried it, we would face jail time. Calling something a vaccine that does not prevent those who receive it from contracting the disease it claims to combat is fraud and would be illegal if you or me tried it.

  • Threaten workers and business, but not a word about the criminal and welfare classes?

    • Ben, When Biden threatens citizens of the United States with extreme reprisal for merely refusing to get injected with an experimental drug that appears to be ineffective at best, and has the potential for much bodily harm, can we enlarge our definition of the Criminal Class to include the President of the United States?

      • Nope. It’s been tried. When the aliens are invading earth, are we supposed to let you be assimilated or shove you into the escape pod?

      • The vaccine is NOT experimental. Stop spreading false information.

        • I don’t know it wasn’t stolen. It is reported more people voted than were legal voters in many states. Dead people typically can’t vote. They allegedly did in 2020 in large quantities. How does that happen? Purposefully. Foreign powers were Participating. How does that happen? Just because you have no conscience doesn’t mean where there is smoke there is no fire.

        • First, the so called vaccine is a gene therapy. Secondly, long-term effects have not been studied with the injections that are under emergency authorization. Finally, good luck.

  • Evidently, being in a public employee sector union gives you immunity from the chinese lung flu.
    I now identify as a postal worker.

  • Where is the mass anti-BIden/mandate protest rally? Why do only libs protest?

    • Placarding is not protesting. Protesting is a written complaint the legislature itemizing your complaint, who, when, where, why a usurpation happened and what do you thing should be done about it. Before that the protestor should have written a Notice To Cure to the offender so you give them an opportunity to cure. THAT is a protest that will make a change. Dems never do this.

  • I’m not scared as I’ve contracted the virus, and through proper nutrition and vigorous daily exercise, was only tired with some weird hot/cold flashes for about two days. Fully recovered and now have the best defense ever, natural immunity.

  • How many people tore up their stimulus checks because they are free and don’t want to be told what to do and the government doesn’t run their life?

  • Social control. Pure and simple.

    Wonder what will be required next?

    You had freedom. You gave it away because you were lazy and scared.

    • Isn’t that always the way?

  • Just for those interested here are the possible side effects as listed on the VACCINE INFORMATION FACT SHEET FOR RECIPIENTS AND CAREGIVERS ABOUT COMIRNATY (COVID-19 VACCINE, mRNA) AND PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE TO PREVENT CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19).

    • feeling unwell
    • swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy)
    • diarrhea
    • vomiting
    • arm pain

    • Yep. Same as with aspirin. What’s your point if you have one?

  • Placarding is not protesting. Protesting is a written complaint to the legislature itemizing your complaint, who, when, where, why a usurpation happened and what do you think should be done about it. Before that the protestor should have written a Notice To Cure to the offender so you give them an opportunity to cure. THAT is a protest that will make a change. Dems never do this.
