27 individuals have officially been discharged from the Air Force for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine, making them the first service members to be removed for disobeying the mandate. The Air Force gave its forces until Nov. 2 to get the vaccine, but thousands have refused or sought an exemption status.

On Monday, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said that these are the first airmen to be administratively discharged for reasons involving the vaccine. She said all of them were in their first term of enlistment, so they were younger, lower-ranking personnel.

Politico reports that while “the Air Force does not disclose what type of discharge a service member gets, legislation working its way through Congress limits the military to giving troops in vaccine refusal cases an honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable condition.”

Stefanik said that none of the 27 discharged members sought any type of exemption such as medical, administrative or religious. As a result, they were formally removed from service for failure to obey an order. Stefanek said it is also possible that some had other infractions on their records, but all had the vaccine refusal as one of the elements of their discharge.

Politico adds, “Several officials from the other services said they believe that so far only the Air Force has gotten this far along in the process and discharged people over the vaccine refusal. According to the latest Air Force data, more than 1,000 airmen have refused the shot and more than 4,700 are seeking a religious exemption.”

    I went through the same thing with the anthrax vaccine. I was due to return to the states in a month so the doctor refused to give it to me due to a shortage of vaccine. It was reported that I refused the shot and I (a civilian) was processed for removal. It cost me $3000 for a lawyer but I got the last laugh. Due to bureaucratic ineptitude I was kept on the payroll for a month while I sat at home on full pay. It ended my chances for promotion but I was close to retirement anyway.

    I thought Biden’s vaccine mandate was overturned by the courts. This is an insane policy.

    That is a good start. Get rid of about 270,000 more military and shut down half of the defense contractors. We could save some real money. Give the money to American citizens if they promise to use the money to buy assault rifles and ammo to protect their homes and businesses from the communist rioters. Let Ali Baba and the forty thieves hire their own private security guards instead of using Uncle Sugar’s soldiers (our children) to keep the Middle East safe from the Religion of Peace devotees.

    The military really gives you little choice when it comes to innoculations.
    Just one of those things about joing the service. In return, the military is expected to tend to your health.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
