Let it never be said that the focus on politics amounts to worship of politics, for we come not preaching that the Republican Party is on your side, but that too many of them are actively against you. Make no mistake, politics is a mission field. The spiritual direction of a nation is dictated by its political winds. This is an overarching theme in 1st and 2nd Kings.
On November 30, the US House of Representatives passed by overwhelming majority the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act by a vote of 294-130, with every Democrat voting Yea, joined by 80 Republicans, sending the bill to the US Senate. This bill is designed to authorize the CDC in data collection and database development as pertaining to vaccinations. The text to H.R. 550 reads as follows:
“(A) conduct activities (including with respect to interoperability, population reporting, and bidirectional reporting) to expand, enhance, and improve immunization information systems that are administered by health departments or other agencies of State, local, Tribal, and territorial governments and used by health care providers; and
“(B) award grants or cooperative agreements to the health departments, or such other governmental entities as administer immunization information systems, of State, local, Tribal, and territorial governments, for the expansion, enhancement, and improvement of immunization information systems to assist public health departments in—
Regimes all around the world have been rolling out vaccine passport systems. Meanwhile, America by design lacks the infrastructure necessary to implement such a system. We do not have universal healthcare, buffering the government from the citizens’ medical records. Moreover, the system of federalism inhibits uniformity as a means of protection from an overbearing central government. This law is designed to remedy that—another cure worse than the disease.
States could be funded grants for implementing vaccine passports and cooperating with the CDC. Even private corporations like IBM are involved in the development of these technologies. Under an interoperable system, the New York Excelsior Pass can work with Hawaii or California, because the data would be shared. If passed by the senate, this would be Covidstan’s PATRIOT ACT.
Unsurprisingly, the 80 republicans who signed onto this tyrannous legislation have betrayed their voters on other matters. Listed are the names of each of the representatives and their respective states, which is linked to their congressional profiles. Provided are also their respective voting records on three recent votes: Trump impeachment for Jan 06, their support for the Equality Act (any version), and the most recent “Build Back Better” infrastructure bill, which lacked the necessary Democrat support to pass in the house. Learn these names. If they are your congressman, especially in these Red States, I respectfully ask, are you involved?
A couple of other standouts include Dan Crenshaw (and his deceptive eyepatch), Liz Cheney, and Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader.
Remember this vote when Conservative Inc comes knocking on your door looking for money to pull off the biggest red wave in history, promising they will “save America.” They very well could win 50 seats and take back the senate, but its all for naught if Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell are running the show.
