Major City Set to Require Vaccines for Public Employees as Delta Variant Surges

Could this be coming to a city near you?

Published

on

With a new, highly-contagious strain of COVID-19 now spreading rapidly among the unvaccinated in America, the great debate over who needs to be inoculated continues to rage.

There are plenty of Americans out there who are still not going to get vaccinated, with health officials openly admitting that they’ve hit a wall as it pertains to vaccine reluctancy in recent weeks.  The federal government certainly has no appetite to enforce any widespread mandates on the subject, of course, leaving the dirty work up to local municipalities.

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a major shift in policy regarding this late-stage pandemic surge, and it is sure to draw a great deal of controversy in its implementation.

New York City will require city workers to be vaccinated or tested weekly for COVID-19, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced.

De Blasio cited the danger and lethality of the rapidly spreading Delta variant in announcing the mandate, which will apply to roughly 340,000 city workers. That includes the city’s teachers and its police officers.

Renee Campion, commissioner at the New York City Office of Labor Relations, said if employees refuse to comply, they will be put on leave without pay.

Monday’s decision makes New York the largest city in the nation to take such a step. The mayor said the announcement was part of what will be an intense vaccination effort in the lead-up to the start of the school year.

De Blasio was steadfast in his belief.

“We’re leading by example,” de Blasio said, noting that he hopes the city’s stance will push private employers to follow. “Right now there are employers ready to act, who will take heart from our announcement.”

The mayor blamed the new “delta” variant for the decision, stating that the more-contagious version of the virus has “changed the game”.

Trump Drops Brutal Truth Bomb About Biden’s Border ‘Invasion’

BOOM!

Published

on

There is little doubt that the situation on the southern border of the United States is untenable, catastrophic, and simply sad.

The election of Joe Biden had predictably attracted a massive surge of migrants to the border, as a perceived leniency toward immigration reform almost always comes with Democratic administrations.

To make matter worse, Biden’s choice to appoint Vice President Kamala Harris to the position of Border Czar has been an unmitigated mess, with Harris deciding that she’s rather work on climate change, calling it a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

During a raucous Saturday night rally in Georgia, former President Donald Trump absolutely obliterated the Biden border fiasco.

“Joe Biden has thrown the border wide open and our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people every single month. Every month we have hundreds of thousands of people coming and we don’t even see the people that are really coming in, and I guarantee you they’re the worst of all. “

And then:

“The world is coming into our country. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. I used to say from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, but now it’s from many countries all over the world including the Middle East. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. We’re having people coming into our country that we do not want.”

Biden has been busy lamenting the tactics used by Border Patrol during this unprecedented surge, and taking some guff from federal law enforcement in the process.

Lindsey Graham Makes Major Statement Regarding Trump’s Potential 2024 Run

We did NOT see that coming!

Lindsey Graham

Donald Trump isn’t always the easiest guy to get along with, politically, but that was kind of the point all along.

You see, Trump was elected in 2016 as a disruptor; as the guy who would arrive in Washington and tear down the walls of political pomp, and instill a sense of urgency back to the White House.  It was never going to be a smooth course to sail, but a great many Americans felt that this turbulence was going to be necessary.

Of course, for those that have been a part of Washington’s political machinations for years weren’t always on-board with Trump’s maneuvering, and plenty of on-again, off-again squabbles did occur.

Senator Lindsey Graham was one of those who butted heads with No. 45 on a semi-regular basis, but it does seem as though he’s coming around to the idea of getting Trump back into the White House.

​Sen. Lindsey Graham told a gathering of Republicans that he hopes former President Donald Trump runs in 2024.

“I don’t think Trump is listening. He might be. I hope President Trump runs again,” Graham (R-SC) said at a leadership conference for Michigan’s Republican Party on Saturday, according to the Detroit News.

The former President does appear to be strongly considering it.

Trump, who has been coy about whether he would throw his hat in the ring, came the closest to acknowledging a run in an interview on Friday.

He was asked by David Brody of Real America’s Voice Network if he could name a reason he wouldn’t.

“Well, I guess a bad call from a doctor or something, right?” Trump replied. “I will say, that happens with people.”

“So things happen, through God, they happen,” Trump added. “But you know, I feel so good, and I hate what’s happening to our country.”

Trump and Graham have quarreled a fair bit over the course of the last few years, with their latest spat having taken place not more than a week ago.
