And what did she say, as part of the COVID authoritarian cult, which was not challenged?

Firefighters sue over city of L.A.’s vaccine mandate

A group of 500 Los Angeles firefighters filed a lawsuit Friday against the city over its requirement that L.A. employees be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claims the city’s mandate is a violation of employees’ constitutionally protected autonomous privacy rights.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Firefighters 4 Freedom Foundation, a nonprofit representing 529 members, said Kevin McBride, the group’s attorney.

The firefighters are “pawns in a political chess match, ordered by thirteen politicians on the Los Angeles City Council to inject themselves with an experimental vaccine — over their objections — or lose their jobs,” the lawsuit states.

They’re not even arguing this over the union contract, as many others, like teachers and nurses, are doing. Straight up constitutional rights. They question is, will this work? Constitutionally, the federal government has no right to mandate except for federal employees. It’s really a state power. Is it a city power? That’s the question. Los Angeles is also now requiring vaccine status at gyms, bars, nightclubs, and more.

And then there is this overreach

Two large Bay Area school districts to vote on mandatory COVID vaccinations for eligible students

Board members will vote on proposals — Tuesday in West Contra Costa and Wednesday in Oakland — as districts up and down California struggle to keep students and teachers safe during the pandemic. Roughly 50,000 students are enrolled in Oakland Unified while West Contra Costa Unified serves more than 28,000 students in the cities of Richmond, El Cerrito, Hercules, Pinole and San Pablo, as well as several unincorporated areas.

In West Contra Costa Unified, the proposal comes after scores of coronavirus cases forced officials to temporarily close 18 classrooms during the first five weeks of school. Sponsored by trustees Demetrio Gonzalez-Hoy and Otheree Christian, the measure would require staff to get their first dose by Oct. 3 and their second by Oct. 31, or be placed on unpaid leave until they do so. Students would have until Nov. 21 to get their first shots, and until Dec. 19 for the second.

Under the proposed rule, students who turn 12 would have 30 days after their birthdays to get their first shot.

Being California, both will probably pass, and then see immediate lawsuits. This is a way to force kids to get the vaccine, regardless of what the parents say. And, no, this isn’t like some of the others, like for smallpox, as they are pretty much 100% reliable, which is why we don’t have smallpox raging.

    Psaki said it’s the position of the White House that the flood of unvaccinated immigrants is a good thing.

    “We must continue admitting unvaccinated immigrants into the country,” Psaki said. “We must use them to replace all the workers who got fired for not being vaccinated.”

    “Our workforce is suffering — all these businesses need more workers, and we just told them to fire everyone who hasn’t gotten the vaccine,” she went on. “Mexico is sending us thousands of workers every day to replace those crazy right-wing conspiracy theorists who won’t get the vaccine. And yes, these new workers aren’t vaccinated, either. But most of them aren’t wearing MAGA hats, so it’s an upgrade.”

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    1000 Americans a day are dying from covid
    The immigrants will merely replace them

    • Jl says:

      Why not replace Americans with……..Americans, John?

      • Kye says:

        “1000 Americans a day are dying from covid
        The immigrants will merely replace them”

        Sadly that’s not </strong>the dumbest fuking thing you ever typed here.

        “Why not replace Americans with……..Americans, John?”

        They don’t think that way Jl, it would require Not murdering 1000 babies a day and they just can’t countenance that. Besides, the object IS to replace Americans with anyone except Whites and everywhere except where the elites live.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          We’ve told Kye before that white women need to step up their baby-making.

          Kye wants to force white women to have babies like in The Handmaid’s Tale.

          Otherwise, Black, brown and immigrant people will fill the jobs.

          • Kye says:

            You ignorant racist baby killer. Drop dead. BTW, it’s you not I who resort to force. I have never said I want to force anyone to have a baby. You OTOH, stand firmly behind people using abortion as birth control and murdering their offspring. And unlike leftists I don’t get my policies from fukin fake movies (which I didn’t, and wouldn’t see). Stop the lying.

            Didn’t you say:

            “Elwood P. Dowd says:
            August 29, 2021 at 9:48 am
            You seem on the brink of insanity. Are you “Still in Siagon, In Your Mind”?
            I’m going to break off communications with you and hope you heal.”

            You couldn’t even do what you said you’d do so how would you know what anyone else wants? Lied again!

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Duh. She may be a good doctor but Dr Wen is wrong on this.

    Like “abortion”, the Constitution doesn’t discuss “travel”, but it’s implied as a right in several places in the document.

  4. drowningpuppies says:

    At no point in these 19 months have we seen a clear admission of failure on the part of government officials. Indeed, it’s mostly been the opposite, as the agencies double down, claiming effectiveness while citing no data or studies, while social media companies backed it all by taking down contrarian posts and brazenly deleting accounts of people who dare cite dissenting science.

    The vaccine was the biggest gamble of all simply because the program was so expensive, so personal, and so wildly oversold. Even those of us who opposed every other mandate had hopes that the vaccines would finally end the public panic and provide governments a way to back out of all the other strategies that had failed.

    That did not happen.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

  5. Geo says:

    Yes, it is. It’s just below the rights to an abortion and healthcare and a paycheck from the government.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Reactionary white nationalist, Mr Kye, believes mentioning him in a comment is “communicating” with him. Poor tormented soul.

    He seems apoplectic that white women are not doing their part having babies in sufficient quantities so he can maintain his unearned white privileges. He wants to force white women and girls to carry fetuses to term regardless of how they were impregnated.

    Like most reactionaries, he remains frustrated that women and minorities won’t comport themselves as his subpopulation demands. Like most reactionaries he is desperate to consolidate control of America. Like most reactionaries he fears and hates Democracy.

    He seems particularly angry and miserable, especially for a someone claiming to receive millions of taxpayer dollars, not unlike his hero, Donald Juan tRump.

    I am not a lawyer, but I remember a NY law requiring a period of residency before being eligible for welfare being struck down by the Supreme Court because it interfered with the right to travel.
