For months now, conservatives were dismissed for speculating that COVID shots could be mandated on federal, state and local levels. It turns out those fears were well founded.

Today, the Department of Defense said it will require all active-duty military to submit to the experimental jab by mid-September. This will affect the lives of more than 20,000 active-duty Alaskans.

Regardless of what you believe about the effectiveness of COVID shots, they do entail widely documented health risks, including death. The notion that these will simply melt away once the FDA grants full approval, as is expected later this month, is nonsense.

We are in uncertain times. While there is still no national vaccine mandate for all citizens, we are quickly approaching this threshold. Already tens of thousands of Alaskans are being forced to take the injections in order maintain their livelihoods and care for their families.

The days of persuasion and dialogue are ending, as Dr. Anthony Fauci approvingly stated this past weekend. A coalition of government and private entities are now set on tightening the noose and – if need be – squeezing the nonvaccinated to the ragged edges of society. That’s 40% of America and 48% of Alaska.

    I refused their anthrax shot back in the 90s and soldiers will find a way around this. Either stay deployed where they cant catch up to you or make them force you out and then turn around and start a class action law suit. That’s what we did

  • Lobo says:

    That mandate is illegal under federal law, and the U.S. Constitution. But, who will stand up to it, and put a stop to it ? It seems our elected representatives are simply riding the wagon on down the road.

    • Shifra says:

      Well, stealing presidential elections is illegal too. The only ones who can stop it is we the people, but so far we have done nothing except grumble and comply. Which is why the fascists in charge have become so brazen. They know they have won and can do anything they want to anybody.

      • Lobo says:

        I agree, and it’s the honest, straight up Americans that work everyday to try and make a living, who won’t take that stand. It won’t change until our republic crumbles, and makes it impossible for them to earn a living, and support their families.

  • Something to think about says:

    There is an employee whom is fully vaccinated. His wife was not vaccinated. She got CoVID. So did he – although he’s completely asymptomatic. Neither will die.
    Can he go back to work on Thursday?

    This is happening right now everywhere, including on the North Slope and there is almost ZERO guidance. The only “doooo something!!” reaponse we have is to wear a mask (questionably effective), and vaccinate (questionably effective). At what point do we stop acting like cowards and get on with it?!

      Sweden, who is giving honest reports, has about 95% of the Vaxed infected with the Wuhan (Chinese) flu (covid).

  • Robert A Schenker says:

    Joe Biden made a comment recently about those who choose not to be Jabbed “paying the price”. From what I can ascertain it appears those who do get jabbed pay the price also given the Governments reporting of deaths due to the jab. I believe that Alaska has one of the highest rate of Jabbed individuals in the Nation. This comes as no surprise since Alaska Native Medical is all in with Jabbing everything in sight. This is a watershed moment for America and for Alaska, we will see if liberty or tyranny triumphs.

  • G Aleution says:

    Those “in the know” (that wouldn’t include anyone currently in Alaska) in media in the lower 48 have inadvertently admitted on their shows that there is “something” major and harmful planned for Alaska and one said he “hopes it is not true”. I when inquired directly from him I got no response. he was speaking with some para former military diplomat China connected expert in government styles. So I guess your negative experience is a secret of sorts. It’s always good to spill any beans because it is patriotic and it forces the heavily demented or demon infested personalities to look for cover, retreat, abandon malicious “plans” for the unwary, innocent, vulnerable populations (in Alaska there are several – the uneducated, spiritually segregated, misinformed, dependent, etc) to populate dirty programs in a state where defending the country men’s rights is a laughing matter and humor among the heavily demon infested.
