Liberals are continuing to show that COVID-19 restrictions are more about power than “following the science.” As celebrities party maskless at the Super Bowl, and D.C. eases mandates, New York City Mayor Eric Adams fired over 1,400 unvaccinated government workers.

Cases of the Omicron variant have decreased by 80% since its peak in January. The virus is diminishing, but the power hungry government continues to grow. The city revealed the firings on Monday, which included 36 NYPD personnel, 25 Fire Department workers and 914 Department of Education staffers.

The New York Post reports “the number had dropped considerably by last Friday’s vaccine mandate deadline as more employees submitted proof of getting at least one shot, City Hall officials said.” At one point last week officials estimated nearly 4,000 individuals would be fired, with the final number ending up being around 1,400.

”In one category, there were 2,400 veteran employees on leave without pay who had not opted to extend their health insurance and had not provided proof of vaccination. In the end, 1,428 of those city workers failed to get shots and were fired.”

“Nearly 1,000 — or 40 percent — provided evidence of getting at least one shot at the 11th hour and returned to work, officials said.”

Mayor Adams publicly thanked workers who did get the full vaccination, meaning the initial two shots of either Pfizer or Moderna, or the single dose of Johnson and Johnson.

“City workers served on the frontlines during the pandemic, and by getting vaccinated, they are, once again, showing how they are willing to do the right thing to protect themselves and all New Yorkers,” the mayor said.

The Post reports the firings were just the first round, and there could be many more. Among those fired were members he embattled NYC Housing Authority, which lost 101 workers. 40 Sanitation Department workers were also terminated, according to an agency chart provided by the city.

“Workers should not get fired. There are a lot of people who don’t believe in putting this stuff in their bodies,” said Harry Nespoli, president of the Uniformed Sanitationmen’s Association, and head of the Municipal Labor Council.

    Are there not any politicians with some common sense in New York? Thought this guy might be different. Must have left overs from the silly guy’s administration. Please Mr. Mayor, don’t be dumb.

    There is no such thing as a vaccine for covid. No such thing exists anywhere in the world. Experimental shots are not vaccines. Sorry!

    I would like to tell Mayor Eric Adams that this ordeal is not a laughing matter. Terrible picture of you after taking the livelihoods of hundreds of city workers. NYPD and NYFD who are risking their lives every minute they are at work. 2400 Veteran on leave without pay is shameful.
    The numbers are going down and you still have the need to show you are in charge.
    Perhaps time better spent would be to clean up the crime in your city.

    Not enough. Fire all government workers regardless of status. Then outsource the work to private business where they have work performance standards and hire based on ability and performance.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Vaccine

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
