LOS ANGELES, Oct 11 (Reuters) – Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on Monday barring all COVID vaccine mandates in the state by any entity, including private businesses. Abbott’s move sets him up for a clash with Joe Biden, who last month ordered all U.S. employers to require their workers to be vaccinated.

For some 18 months now, our life has been affected in ways both big and small by COVID-19. I am writing today to make sure you are aware of what, for some, may be one of the biggest changes yet. The Commonwealth of Virginia is contemplating a requirement for ALL students and teachers in ALL schools, public and private, to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Unlike previous vaccination requirements, the proposed requirement will allow NO religious exemption.

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is taking public comments until October 17th. Regardless of your beliefs, or whether or not you agree with the proposal, this is your chance to exercise your right to be heard. Please consider taking a few minutes to let VDH know your thoughts. Here’s a link to the proposal . If you scroll down to “Comment Period” and click the text to the right, you can add your comments.

Unfortunately, not all Texas businesses are going along with this. Texas Instruments announced to its employees that nothing has changed – all employees MUST get the jab to work at TI.

Last year, Abbott Banned all Churches in Texas!!! Enforced useless mask mandates! And told us texans we are not even allowed to go to work to feed our families! This man is a monster! March 1st, ’22 (remember that day) there will be a vote to replace him with a REAL republican.

Abbott also banned the mask mandates and the San Antonio schools are just ignoring him. This and the anti-vaxx mandate need the force of law.

Good luck on that for the Texas offices of any aerospace contractors. NASA just pulled the trigger giving a deadline of Dec. 8 for subcontractors. No weekly testing pass…MUST be shot up with their frankensh*t. Guess they’re trying to nab as many as they can on the heels of the SW thing and Abbott’s EO before resistance picks up any more steam. Wonder if threy’ll have enough aerospace people available to keep the space junk up there, or if all those engineers and their bosses will be surrender monkeys. Houston definitely has a problem…

It won’t stop the commutards, you’ll have to bring in entities that may or may not side with the citizens. Failing that, we mayn have to resort to “alternatives” that the Romainians used in the 80’s, on their terrorists(gov’t).

But it’s NOT safe, and if it ever was effective only for 4 months at the most. All that scar tissue on vital organs tends to shorten life spans.

More legislation by executive fiat. It doesn’t work that way, I’m sorry to say. He can AND SHOULD issue an executive order to direct cops, etc. under his legal jurisdiction to not enforce mandates, but overreaching into the realm of dictating policy to private entities is the wrong way to go.

(Cue the roaches)

PenceTheTraitor
PenceTheTraitor

Dictating a policy that stops companies from potentially murdering employees through coercion of a very dangerous vaccine is very appropriate. It was the right thing and still does not go far enough. Anyone mandating these experimental vaccines should go to jail for attempted murder. Wake up!! Don’t underestimate the seriousness of the situation!!

I had wished that Gov. Abbott wouldn’t have defended the “fake” vaccine as “…safe and effective and our best defense against the virus…” which is an out and out lie! But he is a politician and has to placate his enemies or his pro vaccine opponents to prove he is even handed by this decision.

Its a start, however- under Texas code Section 418.173 the “entity” cannot be fined in excess of $1000. Assuming Biden and administration have their way – companies will face a far greater penalty ($70,000) if they don’t comply. . It won’t be a difficult choice to make between choosing whether to enforce illegal federal mandates or state counter measures.

JoeUser
JoeUser

That’s current statutes. Abbot is getting legislation lined up for the next special session to have the legislature address compliance and penalties, which will likely supercede 418.173.

PenceTheTraitor
PenceTheTraitor

What Biden is doing is not a Mandate since an employee can still opt for a weekly test. What this executive stops is those companies that do a real mandate and don’t allow the option of weekly testing. Use your brain next time so I don’t need to waste my time explaining these easy concepts.

So glad to hear someone standing up against tyranny!! Fight the good fight!! On the flip side, everyone is going to move to Texas now…. that’s okay, but we don’t need anyone bringing any ideas that are going to destroy our state just like you destroyed yours!!!

If India and some other countries could prove the method by which ivermectin and hydroxuiquine stop the reproduction of viruses we could use that data to demand a chemical therapy.

But alas that data is still anecdotal and not being organized. For obvious economic reasons.

That’s a step in the right direction. How does this affect companies like like the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? Can it still require Texas citizens to get vaxxed? The Fed Gov is a large employer here in Texas.

The 10th Amendment’s anti-commandeering provision bars the federal government from commandeering or requiring state officers to carry out federal directives. This principle thus prevents Congress from requiring states or localities to mandate masks or vaccines.

While the MSM condemns the use of ivermectin, the most populated state in India just declared they are officially COVID free after promoting widespread use of the safe, proven medicine. In addition to this, Ivermectin attaches to covid spikes and prevents them from binding to ACE2. Get your Ivermectin today while you still can! https://health.p0l.org/

Anything south of Crestview is getting very, very expensive these days. Not sure if it’s all of the folks moving to the area that’s driving up housing prices, but it’s not as affordable as it was about 10 or 15 years ago, that’s for sure.

Stay out of Austin and the surrounding area, Soros is buying up the judiciary even in the small towns around it. Texas judges are all elected, not appointed, and that is the down side… and they absolutely can be bought. Small towns like Nacadoches and Navasota near Louisiana are good places to try. Better land too.

All the folks getting pushed out of Travis county (due to high taxes and home prices in Austin) are invading the surrounding counties. For the longest time Hays County was relatively safe from the locusts. Not anymore. Due to the invasion property taxes have gone sky high, just in the last three or four years, it’s insane – they’re taxing folks out of their homes.

Not to mention dwindling infrastructure that can’t handle the overgrowth of new neighborhoods. There’s not enough water, but gotta get those McMansion suburbs built for that tax revenue! Screw how they’re going to tap the Edwards Aquifer out of water – they’re already running private wells further south dry.

He’s still a RINO, but at least he fears being primaried. So he has to stick to the ‘safe and effective panacea’ script, while not mandating the shot so as to not offend Texans. Because he can’t just run a copy machine to get re-elected like newsom and whitmer.

It’s not safe and effective and it doesn’t lessen symptoms. I know about 20 people who played the CLOTtery. 2 of them had heart attacks, over half got covid and had worse, more prolonged symptoms than I did. It’s sad to see so many duped into taking poison because they wouldn’t turn off the Goebbels-esque talking points rehash on tv every day. These people got talked out of their common sense by an unproveable, repeated lie. There’s literally no valid scientific way to determine if these shots reduce symptoms. The only way to prove that would be if you could somehow you infected a group of people with the same variant twice; once pre vaxx, once after vaxx. And even then you can’t prove anything because the human immune system condition is constantly changing and can be influenced positively or negatively by a myriad of different variables.
