Democrat Governor: Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Is ‘A Problem For All Of Us’
Democrat Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer discussed President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate this week, saying that the mandate is “a problem for all of us.”
“We’re an employer too, the state of Michigan is,” Whitmer said. “I know if that mandate happens, we’re going to lose state employees. That’s why I haven’t proposed a mandate at the state level. Some states have. We have not, we’re waiting to see what happens in court.”
“But we have a lot of the same concerns that you just voiced, and it’s going to be a problem for all of us,” she added.
According to the Detroit Free Press, “The governor made the remarks in response to a comment from the head of a home health care provider during a meeting with business leaders in Howard City, about 35 miles north of Grand Rapids.”
Whitmer’s comments come shortly after a federal judge in Georgia blocked the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate nationwide for federal contractors and subcontractors.
U.S. District Court Judge R. Stan Baker of the Southern District of Georgia said that the seven states that had challenged the mandate – led by Georgia – would likely succeed in their lawsuits, and that the mandate “goes far beyond addressing administrative and management issues in order to promote efficiency and economy in procurement and contracting.”
COVID-19 vaccine mandates have led to mass firings across the country. At New York’s Northwell Health, the state’s largest provider of health care, thousands of employees were fired after refusing the vaccine. Additionally, UMass Memorial Health fired 200 employees this week after they missed their COVID-19 vaccination deadlines.

National Institutes of Health renews ‘bat coronavirus’ research funding
Have we not learned our lesson? The now infamous National Institutes of Health has renewed a grant to EcoHealth Alliance for research on the “risk of bat coronavirus spillover emergence.” The news is shocking to many due to multiple agencies of the U.S. government supporting the lab leak theory of Covid’s origin.
“Zoonotic coronaviruses (CoVs) represent a significant threat to global health, as demonstrated by the emergence of SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2,” a press release read. “Bats were identified as the wildlife reservoirs of SARS-CoV by EcoHealth Alliance, and since then, we have published hundreds of novel SARS-related CoV (SARSr-CoV) sequences from wildlife in China and across Southeast Asia.”
In order to “ease” concerns and some objections, the press release noted on-the-ground work under the auspices of this new grant will not be conducted in China. The study is specific to southern China, but the “renewed work will involve collaboration only between EcoHealth Alliance and the Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School.”
All “recombinant virus culture or infection experiments” will also be removed from the research process. The press release assured that the research would not be “gain of function,” which involves extracting viruses from animals and engineering them in a lab to make them more transmissible or dangerous to humans.
The Biden administration has been supportive. National Review reports:
In February, national-security council communications coordinator John Kirby said the Biden administration supports gain-of-function research despite the potential risks as long as that it is pursued in a safe and transparent manner.
“[The president] believes that [the research is] important to help prevent future pandemics, which means he understands that there has to be legitimate scientific research into . . . the potential sources of pandemics so that we understand [them] and so we can prevent them from happening,” Kirby said.
However, let’s not forget:
in February, FBI director Christopher Wray told Fox News that Covid likely escaped from a laboratory in China, issuing the first public opinion of the sort from the agency on the origins of the virus.
“The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan,” Wray said. “Here you are talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab.”

Anything to get re-elected! She’s a fraud and a lying hypocrite! She was of the worst offenders when it came to mandates, lockdowns, and attacks on Citelli RN rights.
