Proof of Vaccinations in D.C.

| Posted in Blog

Get ready to show your vaccine passport almost everywhere if you want to visit our nation’s capital. The D.C. mayor has issued an edict requiring anyone 12 and older to show proof of vaccinations to enter public establishments. It’s nuts. Think about the hundreds of thousands of school children visiting D.C. – how’s that going to work? And the burdens placed on businesses, who are already struggli...

FDA and CDC experts object to vaccine booster for young people

| Posted in Blog

There was a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He said: "In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indiscriminately push for boosters for all young people. Those recommendations came over the objections of the agencies’ own experts." "The last vote by FDA advisers, ...

A Blip on the Covid Radar

| Posted in Blog

If Omicron turns out to be just a minor blip on the Covid radar — and fingers crossed, that could be the case — will our mainstream media cover that news with the same vigor and intensity as they displayed when first sounding the alarm bells over Omicron? After all, as recently as Monday, many mainstream outlets were warning us the sky was falling because of this variant, long before the data ind...

Another Vax Mandate Injunction

| Posted in Blog

Outstanding news this Tuesday afternoon as the courts have just intervened on yet ANOTHER unconstitutional vaccine mandate by President Biden. Just moments ago, a federal judge blocked Biden’s decree that federal contractors must be vaccinated by January 4th. Estimates are that at least one-quarter of our nation’s workforce is employed by a company that – in some capacity – contracts with the fed...

55 Years?!

| Posted in Blog

Some days, all I can do is shake my head in disbelief. Listen to this… This past summer, shortly after the FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) approved the Pfizer vaccine for children aged 16+, a group of about 30 medical and public health professionals wanted to examine the data and documentation submitted to the FDA concerning this decision. That doesn’t seem unreasonable, does it? These are q...

Update on Biden’s Unconstitutional Employer Vaccine Mandate

| Posted in Blog

I'm pleased that implementation of President Biden's unconstitutional employer vaccine mandate has been formally SUSPENDED by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Remember earlier this month, the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals cited “grave statutory and constitutional issues” with Biden's actions when the Court issued its emergency stay on his mandate. In light of that r...

My New Bill To Safeguard Religious Liberties of College Students

| Posted in Blog

To date, I’m proud to have co-sponsored EVERY reasonable piece of legislation in the House of Representatives to limit or curb vaccine mandates. Last time I checked that number was over a dozen bills and counting. Obviously, I’m not opposed to Covid vaccines, as evident by the fact I’ve been vaccinated myself. But it’s a personal choice, and I am STAUNCHLY OPPOSED to the government mandating vacci...
