Unconstitutional And Illegal Vaccine Mandate

Abraham Hamilton III has written an excellent article regarding President Biden’s unconstitutional and illegal vaccine mandate.  It clearly outlines why American is not a monarchy and will not abide a dictatorship.

I strongly encourage you to read Abraham’s article below.

Abraham Hamilton III is general counsel for American Family Association and host of the daily radio program “The Hamilton Corner” on American Family Radio.

THERE IS NO AMERICAN MONARCHY

On September 8, 2021, Politico published an article titled “The Surprisingly Strong Supreme Court Precedent Supporting Vaccine Mandates.”  In it, the author works feverishly to project the argument that the 1905 United States Supreme Court decision against Lutheran minister Henning Jacobson and in favor of the state of Massachusetts’ compulsory vaccination mandate (concerning smallpox) provides the legal footing necessary to uphold…wait for it…a U.S. governmental COVID-19 injection mandate.

Then, almost on cue, on September 9, 2021, the J. Robinette B. Administration announced “Sweeping New Vaccine Mandates for 100 million Americans.”  Gasp!  How was Politico so prescient?  They just so happened to release their article on vaccine mandates the day before Mr. Biden announced an injection mandate.  They weren’t trying to lay the social groundwork for the White House’s executive action, were they?

We do not yet have the formal publication of the executive action.  However, according to reports (including the AP News story cited above), the federal action mandates “that all employers with more than 100 workers require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly.”  This will affect about 80 million Americans.  And,

“The roughly 17 million workers at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid also will have to be fully vaccinated.”

The mandate also requires “vaccination for executive branch employees and contractors who do business with the federal government—with no option to test out.”  This includes several million more workers.  Finally,

“The requirement for large companies to mandate vaccinations or weekly testing for employees will be enacted through a forthcoming rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that carries penalties of $14,000 per violation.”

In the midst of all of this, AP News reported,

“Biden’s order for executive branch workers and contractors includes exceptions for workers seeking religious or medical exemptions from vaccination, according to press secretary Jen Psaki” (in the link cited above).

Yet, in addition to this newly announced intrusion upon the private employment sector, separately,

“[T]he Department of Health and Human Services will require vaccinations in Head Start Programs, as well as schools run by the Department of Defense and Bureau of Indian Education, affecting about 300,000 employees.”

Having said all of that, every ounce of this proposed executive action is illegal and unconstitutional.  The United States of America is a constitutional republic with representative democratic features.  Our Constitution separates power within the federal government.  In our federal executive branch, we have a president.  Not a king!  In our republican form of government, as expressed in Article IV, Section 4 of our U.S. Constitution, we enjoy the benefit of separate sovereignty.  The bulk of emergency power in our nation rests in state governmentNot in the U.S. executive branch.  A president’s role and powers are different than those charged with state governance. Article 2 of our U.S. Constitution sets the parameter, the limits, for executive power. Nowhere in it will you find any authority whatsoever for the J. Robinette B. Administration to compel private companies to force their staffs to inject their bodies with anything or to test them.  Period.

Interestingly, when you read the Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905) opinion Politico cited, you find that the opinion doesn’t support the unconstitutional authoritarian overreach proposed by the White House.  In Jacobson, the Court ruled that it is within the police power of a State to enact a compulsory vaccination law.  And it is for the legislature, and not for the courts, to determine in the first instance whether vaccination is or is not the best mode for the prevention of smallpox and the protection of the public health.  “The State” in Jacobson was the state of Massachusetts.  “The legislature” was the Massachusetts state legislature.  The federal executive branch has no legal authority to do this.  The opinion Politico tried to pass off as legal authority for a national injection mandate is clearly distinguishable from and cuts directly against what the Biden administration is trying to force on the American people.

More specifically, they seek to shove it into our bodies without our consent.  OSHA has no more authority to do this than did the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to issue an eviction moratorium.  This is why the U.S. Supreme Court struck that down too.  Which, Mr. Biden knew but sought to expand anyway, even after the Court rebuked him.  That should give you an indication of his respect, or lack thereof, for the rule of law.

We should also mention Mr. Biden’s injection mandate does not comport with the science presented in the Jacobson case.  The Jacobson Court observed that the vaccination against smallpox at issue in 1905 was promulgated to “prevent the spread of smallpox.” (Jacobson p. 31).  Many well-intentioned people may hope that currently available injections help “slow the spread” of SARS-CoV-2.  But, no one today, at least not anymore, attempts to credibly assert that the various injections prevent infection with or the transmission of SARS-CoV-2.  I recently had Dr. Christina Parks on my radio program to discuss this very thing.  You can find that program here.

She earned her Ph.D. in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Michigan. She did her graduate research in the field of cytokine signaling.  Cytokines are the chemicals the immune system uses to communicate.  During the interview, Dr. Parks referred to a study that indicated that all of the proposed injections were designed for the initial strand of SARS-CoV-2, which for all practical purposes, is no longer present.  There were not designed for the Delta Variant (or any other variants).  Recent studies, indicate that people who’ve developed natural immunity due to having had COVID-19 previously (the disease produced by the SARS-CoV-2 virus) who also receive the injection may be susceptible to greater health risk.  The combined effect of natural immunity plus the injection may be far worse than COVID-19 itself.  Dr. Parks testified about this before the Michigan state legislature.

The reality that the injections do not prevent infection or transmission of SARS-CoV-2 seems to be reflected in recent activity by the CDC.  On August 23, 2021, Pfizer received FDA approval for its Biontech injection.  On September 1, 2021, the CDC changed its definition for vaccination.  It now defines vaccination as “The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.”  Congressman Thomas Massie of Kentucky pointed out that the CDC previously defined vaccination as “Injection of a killed or weakened infectious organism in order to prevent the disease” up until 2015. From 2015 to September 1, 2021, the CDC defined vaccination as “The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease. The CDC’s vaccination definition evolved from “prevention” to “immunity,” and now to mere “protection.”  The CDC seems to have confirmed what Dr. Parks told me (and a few of my “Corner” friends) and tacitly admitted that the injections do not prevent infection or transmission.

The national injection mandate seems to also be anti-science.  Studies like this one from Israel specifically compared the potency and durability of natural immunity to purported injection immunity.  The authors wrote that their study demonstrated “natural immunity confers longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization caused by the Delta variant” than does the two-dose Pfizer injection (the only one with FDA approval to date).  In light of this fact, Dr. Anthony Fauci (“The boy from Brooklyn”) was specifically asked during a recent CNN appearance why Americans with natural immunity would need injections.  His response: I don’t have “a really firm answer” on that.  Seriously?  This from the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases?  If this is so, is science driving the J. Robinette B. Administration to implement a national injection mandate, or is something else dictating this decision?

Whatever the answer, this national mandate is a no-go.  It is unconstitutional.  It’s not supported jurisprudentially.  And, it does not follow the available science.  The United States of America is a constitutional republic.  We are not a monarchy and we will not abide a dictatorship.  The current administration seems to require a reminder of that fact. This abuse of executive power may be just the thing to provoke that reminder.

York County detectives charged Aaron Doster and Hannah Parton with homicide by child abuse and unlawful neglect of a child.

Both Doster, 22, and Parton, 21, were arrested following an investigation into the June 23 death of Parton’s 7-week-old daughter.

Detectives, with help from the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED), charged Doster with homicide after they said he caused blunt force trauma to the head of the baby.

Doster and Parton were also charged with unlawful neglect of a child. Doster was not the father of the baby.

Both Doster and Parton are being held at the York County Detention Center.

CO Man Pleads Guilty To Child Abuse

Father of Denver boy found encased in
concrete pleads guilty to Child Abuse;
murder charge dropped

DENVER, CO  –  The father of a 7-year-old Denver boy found encased in concrete in 2018 has pleaded guilty to a child abuse charge in the case, in exchange for prosecutors dropping the murder charge against him.

Leland Pankey, 40, was charged with murder in Caden McWilliams’ death in May.  In a hearing on Thursday, he pleaded guilty to child abuse resulting in death and tampering with a deceased human body.

The murder charge was dropped in the deal.  Pankey now faces up to 72 years in prison.

“This agreement provides justice for Caden while ensuring that Mr. Pankey will serve a significant amount of time behind bars,” Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said in a news release Thursday.  “This is one of the most horrific cases ever handled by the Denver DA’s Office and we were acutely concerned about re-traumatizing Caden’s family as well as the jury, judge and everyone else involved should this case proceed to trial.”

Pankey is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 28.

The body of McWilliams was found encased in concrete in a storage unit in the 5000 block of East Evans Avenue in Denver on Dec. 23, 2018.

McWilliams’ mother, Elisha Pankey, also pleaded guilty in August to one count of child abuse resulting in death.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner ruled in a report in March that Caden had been malnourished and had cocaine metabolite and methamphetamine in his system.  The boy also had numerous injuries to his head, torso and extremities, according to the autopsy.  He may have suffered from asphyxia, dehydration or hyperthermia, but that couldn’t be confirmed, the autopsy said.

In an interview with police in March, Elisha Pankey told investigators that Leland Pankey abused Caden while they were living in an extended-stay hotel, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.  The couple and their two children had moved into the hotel in May 2018, and Leland Pankey watched the children while Elisha Pankey went to work, she told investigators.

Elisha Pankey said Caden died in July 2018 after his father kept him in a dog kennel, the affidavit said.  A woman who had been in the Arapahoe County Jail with Elisha Pankey in December said Pankey told her that she believed her son suffocated in the dog kennel.

Leland Pankey kept Caden in the kennel overnight – with blankets on top of it – and the boy cried out that he was hot and thirsty, Elisha Pankey told her fellow inmate, according to the affidavit.

On the day Caden died, his mother and father bought Quikrete, trash bags and water, drove Caden’s body to the storage unit on Evans Avenue, and mixed the concrete and poured it into the kennel, the affidavit said.

The boy’s body wasn’t discovered until December, when officers responded to a domestic violence call involving the Pankeys.

Police learned that the couple had two children, and Elisha Pankey told officers that the children were with their father.  When police contacted Leland Pankey, he said one child was in daycare, but he avoided answering questions about Caden, eventually telling officers the boy was with his mother, the affidavit said.

When officers interviewed a woman whose name was redacted in the affidavit, she told police that Leland Pankey had lost his son and that Pankey said her family could have their storage “because it had too many memories,” the affidavit said.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for the Pankeys’ storage unit and found Caden’s remains inside.

Stop Victimizing Children

Rate of Child Abuse in NY much higher
than national rate

ALBANY, NY  –  The rate for child abuse in N.Y. is nearly double the national rate, according to the 28th Child Mistreatment report and the NYS Kids’ Well-being Indicators Clearinghouse (NYSKWIC).  The Child Mistreatment report was released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)(CPS) .

Based on reports of child abuse/neglect in 2017, the rate of child abuse in N.Y. is 17.1 per 1,000 children according to NYSKWIC.  The national rate of child abuse for the same period in the U.S. was 9.1 per 1,000 children according to the HHS report.

The rate in the immediate Capital Region is also higher than the national average.  In some counties, the rate is almost quadruple the national average.  Saratoga County, while still higher than the national average, had the lowest rate in the area at 12.7, while Montgomery County had the highest at a staggering 34.3.

Locally, the highest number of child abuse/neglect cases were reported in Albany County (1,146) while the least number was reported in Greene County (203), according to NYSKWIC.

Younger children are more likely to die from abuse.  Children 3-years-old or younger are particularly more susceptible but children under the age of one were the most likely to die because of abuse or neglect, the HHS report indicated.

Suspected child abuse or neglect in N.Y. can be reported by calling 1-800-342-3720. Reports can also be made to Law Enforcement, school officials, social workers, child care workers or medical/hospital personnel according to the NYS Office of Children and Family Services website.
