U.S. Army Boots over 60,000 National Guard and Reservists Who Remain Unvaccinated from Covid

U.S. Army Boots over 60,000 National Guard and Reservists Who Remain Unvaccinated from Covid

Former Secretary of Defense Mike Pompeo blasts Pentagon for this inane move.

In one of the most ridiculous moves made by our government in its history, over 60,000 Army National Guard and Reservists will be barred from service for refusing to get vaccinated against covid due to the clearly useless mandate issued by the Biden administration.

Roughly 40,000 National Guardsmen and 22,000 Reservists will be barred from service for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the US Army announced Friday.

The decision effectively cuts off pay and benefits to the combined 62,000 service members and prohibits them from participating in training.

“Soldiers who refuse the vaccination order without an approved or pending exemption request are subject to adverse administrative actions, including flags, bars to service, and official reprimands,” an Army spokesperson said in a statement to Military.com.

The Guardsmen and Reservists had until last Thursday to receive the vaccine. The deadline was the latest of all the armed services, which required members to get vaccinated last year, according to the outlet.

If the soldiers continue to refuse the vaccination requirement without a valid medical or religious exemption, they could face further action including “separation” or mandatory discharge.

Part-time service members who have pending exemption cases can continue to participate in training exercises and collect pay and benefits. However, the Army has approved very few medical exemptions and religious exemptions to date, Military.com reported.

At this point, it is quite clear the vaccines are stopping neither the transmission of the virus nor infections with it. Many notably vaccinated and boosted officials have had covid (Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, to name a just a few).

With breakthrough covid cases commonplace, experts are now readjusting expectations about ‘vaccine efficacy.

Experts say current vaccines are still doing their most important job – dramatically reducing people’s risk of severe illness and death. But they are no longer hopeful vaccines will stop the virus in its tracks, now that it’s clear vaccinated people can develop mild disease and transmit illness to others.

The astoundingly high levels of protection against infection that was initially observed, especially for the mRNA vaccines, created by Pfizer and Moderna, have largely dissipated, especially for those with one or two doses combined with extremely transmissible variants.

Young and healthy adults in good physical shape are at low risk for severe covid effects and no amount of vaccination will prevent anyone from getting covid.

In fact, currently at least 60% of the American population has contracted covid in one of its many variants.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted Austin for this move.

Pompeo said the military is already facing recruitment problems under Austin, a former Raytheon executive and retired general.

Previously having condemned the “wokeness” shift under Austin, Pompeo added the latest situation could lead to a mathematical 10-15% reduction in National Guardsmen.

“This is really dangerous. I assure you that Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin aren’t worried about the vaccines. They’re worried about making their militaries more capable,” he said.

“We should be focused on the same thing. There’s a real risk to readiness, a real risk to making sure that we have units that are capable of deploying should something be required of them.”

He added that the vaccine mandate isn’t based on science and “makes no sense” at this point.

Pompeo said Biden’s successor should reinstate every guardsmen cut or effectively rubber-roomed by this administration.

Bitterly clinging to the useless vaccine mandate is the type of inane, virtue-signalling, America Last move that is totally on brand for the Biden administration.

    Hey! This is word appropriation! I came up with slogan first! I demand recompense and reparations!

    Also, I did like the comment because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    And these geniuses wonder why they are having trouble recruiting. How do we get leaders back into the Department of Defense?

This rancid tyrannical government wants us all to be very unprotected!

Our once mighty military force is fast becoming the joke of the world….

They will be called back once we find another country’s war to fight again.

Their body, but apparently not their choice.

Those are the smart ones and they’ll have their health, at least. I say that with a certain sadness because I do have family that took the poison jabs to stay in.

Is it a vaccine? Is it similar to other vaccines? Does it do what other vaccines do? Perhaps it’s time to stop allowing the proponents of this policy to distort the definitions.

A case can made that the ‘vax’ is simply a pre illness therapeutic delivered via injection. No one, even the experts, still claim they confer immunity or prohibit transmission. The benefit conferred is potentially less severe outcomes when one contracts the virus.

What’s role do pre-existing conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, auto immune disorders play regarding severe outcomes with the injection(s)? Does the injection(s) overcome those conditions and prevent being hospitalized and reduce mortality in these populations? By what amount?

Military members, even reservists, are required to maintain a level of physical health and fitness far in excess of the average. The unaddressed question is do these injections actually improve the outcomes for the military population over no injection? If so by what amount? Is that statistically significant? Does that amount of gain, if any, out weigh the significant cost in sunk training dollars, institutional knowledge and hands on experience discarded by termination of 60,000 service members?

    The goal of this exercise is to normalize gene therapy. Folks involved in this crap have already stated the intent to make the human population more tractable. Their version of the ‘Pax”.

      CommoChief in reply to venril. | July 11, 2022 at 12:04 pm

      That’s certainly part it, to use mRNA for Rona thus normalizing a heretofore unproven tech and monetizing the patent holders …

From the DOD Covid website for active duty, reserve and national guard personnel:

1,721,367 fully vaccinated, 290,710 partially vaccinated for a total of 2,012,077 protected personnel.

421,087 cases, 2,621 hospitalizations and 95 deaths. That’s a 21% infection rate, a 6% hospitalization rate and a 0.02% death rate with vaccinations.

Putting this into perspective, US military deaths not war related average 918/year. versus 38 for Covid or about 4% of all deaths. Compare that to 63% were suicide, 15% for automobile and 7% for alcohol/substance abuse. Covid doesn’t deserve this kind of focus and is a disservice to our children in uniform especially when it involves forced separation for non-compliance for a low risk situation in a high risk profession.

The continued focus on Covid is clearly bike shedding with senior leadership pandering to the panic-based policies of the Biden administration.

How aggressively are these people being booted? Administrative separation or dishonorable discharges?

    Ironclaw in reply to randian. | July 11, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    General discharge under honorable conditions. Not an honorable discharge, but also not a DD. At least that’s what the USAF has been doing.

Doesn’t the Governor of the respective states have control over the National Guard? What’s keeping a red state Governor from taking those military members and turning them into a “State Guard/Militia”? I think they have something like that in Florida.

    Funding, Federal recognition and training resources.

    The NG salaries are paid from federal dollars; weekend drill, active duty for training, mobilization. The Officers hold dual commissions one from the Feds one from the State. The retirement benefits are federal. Health care is federal.

My body

My choice

The majority of service mena nd women are young so the Covid risks are low. This is all theatrics just like Climate change.

Anyone who wasn’t taking Biden’s Jim Crow on steroids speech seriously congratulations on this purge waking you up and ending your delusions about him.

Joe Biden thinks you are a nazi, he doesn’t want you in uniform or society and will work as hard as he can to remove you from both.

Our only possible leverage is the possibility that if it doesn’t stop we stop funding the military to the tune we are now.

It is either change our principles to remove “MUH MILITARY EXPANSION!!!!” or the military will continue kicking conservatives out to transform into the next Hollywood. They don’t give a dam what you think if your opinion isn’t backed by a willingness to do anything about it and yes a parliament is well within its rights to defund a politicized military that is taking political sides.

It is an experimental Vaccine, non-FDA approved.
I don’t understand why anyone could be forced to accept it.
