Governor Ige’s vaccine passport appears to be a pilot project expected to go national in the next year or so.
The national program is spearheaded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Department of Defense. This is the same DOD that, in the middle of the night, abandoned hundreds of American citizens to the mercy of the Taliban, last month; along with a strategic Air Force base and tens of billions of dollars worth of U.S. military equipment — a parting gift to the terrorists and their friends the Chinese Communist Party.
And this is the same CDC that has no problem with tens of thousands of COVID-infected illegal immigrants who stroll across the southern border and who get bussed or flown to all parts of the nation (including Hawai‘i) by the federal government.
So be comforted. Our fate is in good hands. Dr. Kelly Moor, of the Immunization Action Coalition, which is charged with administering the shots, assures us that the passport is the “simplest” way of keeping track of who’s vaxed (and who isn’t.)
Moor explains: “Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due. Let’s do the simple, easy thing first. Everyone’s going to get that.”
So any time the government decides you are due for a booster they can jab a needle in your arm (filled with who-knows-what)? It’s either that or you forfeit your individual liberties. Pretty damned scary.
A couple of things to keep in mind: First, this is not a law passed by Congress or by the Legislature. It is a dictate imposed on the entire population by a single politician as if he were king. King Ige. Second, this is all over a malady with a 99.9% survival rate. And, finally, this coronavirus nightmare comes courtesy of the Chinese Communist Party.
