When the vaccine mandate issue gets to a real court (not a political one) it will fail on the same issue as the affordable care act was slated to fail until Justice Roberts invented his tax argument.

It was held by a majority, including Roberts, that the only basis for federal involvement in health care was the commerce clause but that clause only applied to regulate some type action; in that case the purchase of health insurance. It specifically held that the commerce clause could not be used to regulate (and penalize) inaction, in that case the failure to buy insurance. That is where Roberts invented his tax to substitute for the inability to regulate noncompliance under commerce.

In the case of vaccine mandates, existing Supreme Court precedent would allow the action of taking a vaccine to be regulated under the commerce clause but it would not allow the federal government to regulate or punish a decision to not take that action. Very simple concept. When a person takes some action it can be considered commerce but when they decide to not participate, their non participation is not commerce.

Texas has some very good lawyers and they were at the forefront of the battle against the affordable care act and I am confident they thought this out before the State issued the mandate prohibition. Depending on the judge assigned, they could lose at the district court level but when it gets to the 5th Circuit it should be a slam dunk. I doubt the Supreme Court would even consider it. The problem remains the damage that will be done if a hack political judge at the district court level decides to delay things. The current rogue administration is not even making a pretense at following law.

It looks like the "automobile accident" which killed Gov Kemp's future son-in-law may have put a chill on this judge also.

Obviously this has nothing whatsoever to do with Dr Malone’s access to medical journals but is intended as a reminder to all those other less prominent doctors of what can befall them if they attempt to break from the prevailing orthodoxy. Many good physicians in practice by themselves or in small partnerships can not survive financially if the “powers that be” come after them. The suspension of billing rights under medicare or other large insurance provider, revocation of hospital rights, suspension of prescription authority, or any number of things could destroy an otherwise successful business. The message is don’t rock the boat; don’t poke the bear.

They didn't just die one minute apart. They were wheeled into a room, hooked up to a morphine drip and euthanized together.

Last time I looked there was a pretty big body of water out there. Has the Chinese army learned to march on water?

There was a time in the not so distant past when our farm economy was not doing so well and wealthy Japanese investors were buying up farmland at premium prices. There was a hue and cry in our country about how the Japanese were going to own America. In a few years, Japan’s economy slowed down and farmland started coming on the market. In a relatively short time those supposedly unsophisticated farmers who sold at a premium were buying back their farms at a discount. The lesson in this story is that a foreign investor can’t take the land home with him and that having money to buy the land doesn’t vest him with the knowledge to make that farm pay. (Farming isn’t easy and successful farmers aren’t dumb hicks just waiting to be taken advantage of by slick investors.)

You are absolutely correct. The “no liability” clause refers to civil liability, not criminal, and even in the civil realm it is not absolute. If they are shown to have deliberately and knowingly introduced a harmful product or actively covered up the danger after acquiring knowledge, they will be liable, both civilly and criminally. This will take a long time to play out and many will suffer but too many are in too deep to back out now.

They are probably slated to be among the survivors. Interesting to see what vaccine, if any, they received. (They probably grew up using Apple products rather than Windows.)

All bosses are not in favor of the vaccine nor the mandate. Many are trying to figure out how to deal with a situation they didn’t create, don’t support, and can’t change. Despite what some folks may think, firing people is not fun. Many are struggling with the same concerns the employees have in addition to the added burden of how to keep the operation going.

When the time comes, what if there is one final Q post asking all believers with Twitter accounts to tweet:

“My fellow Americans, the Storm is upon us.”

This would assure such wide spread distribution that it could not be missed and could not be suppressed.

Quite simple. Brazil, as are other independent countries, is a sovereign nation and at some point, Pfizer and other multi-national corporations need to be reminded of what sovereignty entails.

I seem to remember a case going to the Supreme Court on the issue of pharmacist refusing to fill prescriptions for the morning after pill. I believe the Court let stand a lower court ruling that prescriptions for this birth control pill must be filled. Since the underling issue was abortion, this decision would likely have no bearing on refusing to fill prescriptions for life saving medication.

China's has an export based economy sustained by stolen technology and unfair trade agreements. President Trump had already dealt them a major blow with his America First policy and when their virus tanked the economies of the major trading nations, there was no one left to take advantage of. They don't get paid for their junk until it is delivered and all of those ships sitting outside the ports waiting to unload and the idle factories with unsold inventory are eating their reserves. Even their lackey Biden can't save them.

If the video is going to be used as evidence in court, it is wise to not release it into the public domain. Understandably, we all want to know everything as soon as possible, but satisfying our curiosity is not worth jeopardizing the case.

One of the more difficult aspects of dealing with this illness is the lack of information and isolation. Sometimes we forget the simple things. For instance, we often forget the importance of water.

Unfortunately, overdose of medication can be lethal as many have found out with doctor prescribed Oxycodone. It has also happened with over the counter drugs such as Tylenol. By all accounts, Ivermectin is safe if taken in proper dosage, whether the prescribed pill form or the horse formulation. I have heard of overdose with the horse paste but have not heard of any actual deaths. I would be curious if anyone else knows of anyone dying from improper use. I am sure a number of us know of deaths resulting from proper use of the vaccine.

I would rather be anecdotally alive than scientifically dead. (I am sure your mother would also.) I keep a tube of the “horse” medicine on hand just in case my 180 pound horse gets sick and I can’t find any human pills to treat him.

I would not be surprised if your prediction was accurate. He has always been a scheming, egotistical, and self absorbed slacker. The only thing I would add to your summary is a presidential pardon for his family members. That will be the final act triggering his removal.

While these countries may have been forced or duped into making agreements with the drug manufactures, these are sovereign nations and do have legal recourse. That recourse includes prosecution for fraud, intimidation or misrepresentation. I would like to see pharmaceutical company executives put on trial in multiple countries, including the United States.
