Report: Mark of the COVID Beast – French Store Denies People Food, Water Without Vaccine Passport

Western Journal

Published

on

The liberal nation of France has deteriorated into a fascist police state whose vaccine passport requirements may be preventing the unvaccinated from getting basic essentials such as food, judging by a disturbing Twitter video.

“French supermarkets have hired bouncers in order to deny people basic human rights to food and water because they didn’t get the right government permission slip,” independent journalist Luke Rudkowski tweeted on Friday.

The alarming video he posted shows a security guard brutally grabbing a masked woman and throwing her out of the store like a trash bag.

The woman gets outraged by the abusive manhandling and yells at the security guard.

After she leaves, a man approaches the bouncer and scolds him for not allowing the female shopper to get “alimentaire” (a French word for food).

The shocking video is evocative of the “mark of the beast,” a biblical hallmark of those pledged to the forces of evil.

In an Aug. 20 commentary in the Midland (Texas) Reporter-Telegram, titled “Is the COVID vaccine the ‘mark of the beast'”, the Rev. Darin Wood, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Midland, explained that “in Revelation 13:16-18, the Apostle John speaks of an apocalyptic pair of beasts who will rule the earth with vengeance, cruelty and animosity. Their severe manner and harsh rule will inflict pain and grief on all those on the earth at the time.

“Their sovereign reach will require that all those who desire to transact commerce or business – buying or selling anything – to bear the mark of the beast. Should they fail to have the mark, they will be ostracized.”

Wood concluded his commentary by saying the COVID vaccine is not the mark of the beast. But he gave considerable, respectful thought to why many, many people are asking raising the question.

Even as a metaphor, it’s unsettling.

Obviously, this isn’t the literal “mark of the beast,” but the concept is disturbingly similar. In some places in France, if you don’t have proper government-approved documentation, it’s apparently OK to deprive you of the ability of “buying and selling” — even if it’s buying necessities. (In the United States, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has implemented similar measures.)

Another shocking video from France shows activists blocking the entrance to a supermarket that reportedly banned unvaccinated customers.

Still another Twitter video shows a group of French citizens arguing with police about the vaccine passport in front of a store.

Several protesters are heard calling the coronavirus restriction “discrimination.”

Last month, French President Emmanuel Macron urged all French people to get vaccinated and announced the rollout of a nationwide “health pass” (also known as a vaccine passport).

“From August, the health pass will apply in cafes, restaurants, shopping centers, as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medico-social establishments and in long-distance transport,” Macron said in the July 12 speech. (Text and translation available here.)

To his credit, the liberal French president said he secured his country’s borders in order to stem the spread of COVID-19.

“Since July 12, border controls have been tightened,” Macron said.

This is a stark contrast to President Joe Biden, who not only refuses to secure his own country’s borders, but has been letting coronavirus-infected illegal aliens loose across the United States.

To further pressure everyone in France to get vaccinated, Macron said people will soon be forced to pay for their own coronavirus tests.

“In the fall, PCR tests will be paid for, unless prescribed by a doctor, in order to encourage vaccination rather than the multiplication of tests,” Macron said.

France has been roiled by protests after unveiling its vaccine passport requirement, which was enacted in July but took effect on Aug. 1.

Last month, the French Parliament approved a bill requiring vaccine passports for access to restaurants, bars, trains and airplanes.

“The law requires all workers in the health care sector to start getting vaccinated by Sept. 15, or risk suspension,” France 24 reported.

“It also requires a ‘health pass’ to enter all restaurants, trains, planes and some other public venues. It initially applies to all adults, but will apply to everyone 12 and older starting Sept. 30.”

The health pass requires patrons to show paper or digital proof that they’re fully vaccinated, recently tested negative or recently recovered from the coronavirus.

Ironically, the national motto of France is “liberté, égalité, fraternité” (liberty, equality and fraternity).

The country’s embrace of Big Government bullying to browbeat its population into submitting to unscientific, oppressive shows just how far liberals have moved away from the actual principles of freedom and equality.

Marine Vet Gets Award for Stopping Robbery, But His Anti-Biden Shirt Steals the Show

Western Journal

Published

on

U.S. Marine veteran James Kilcer, who thwarted an attempted robbery in an Arizona convenience store last week, received an award Tuesday from the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office while wearing a “Let’s Go Brandon” T-shirt.

He was also sporting a red “Make America Great Again” hat, apparently in support of former President Donald Trump.

Sheriff Leon Wilmot presented Kilcer with the YCSO Citizen’s Valor Award, “For extraordinary heroism and exceptional courage while voluntarily coming to the aid of another citizen during an incident involving criminal activity at extreme, life threatening, personal risk in an attempt to save or protect human life,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

“The YCSO Citizen’s Valor Award is the highest award for citizens whose actions warrant recognition.”

Surveillance video of Kilcer stopping the robbery at the Chevron convenience store early in the morning on Oct. 20 went viral.

The now-U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground employee had just purchased some Gatorades and other items and was talking to the clerk when the suspects came in, Kilcer told the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service.

“I heard the door start opening forcefully and my ‘Spidey senses’ or whatever kind of tingling, and I turn around and saw they were coming in real quick,” he said.

The veteran turned around and his military training kicked in as he sought to disarm the robber.

“I was ready: I saw it coming,” Kilcer said. “The minute my hands closed around it, I never lost contact with the gun. And I pulled him down.”

He held the suspect down until law enforcement arrived.

The person arrested was a 14-year-old juvenile who has now been charged with one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault.

“Kilcer served as a tactical air operations technician in the Marine Corps and was deployed to Afghanistan during his time in the military. He credits his actions to his Marine Corps basic training and mindset,” DVIDS reported.

“I guess I was just in the right place at the right time,’’ Kilcer said. “I was doing what needed to be done.”

While appearing on Fox News on Friday, the Arizonan also waded into the political when he ended the segment, saying with a smile to host Dana Perino, “And remember, [Jeffrey] Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

“OK, got it,” said Perino, who laughed and added, “Very clever.”

Surgeon Fired After Speaking Against School Mask Mandate: ‘Professionals Such as Myself Are Being Silenced’

Western Journal

Published

on

A Minnesota doctor is paying the price for standing up to authority.

On Oct. 11, Dr. Jeffrey Horak told the Fergus Falls school board that parents, not school officials, should be in charge of deciding whether their children wear masks to school, according to Fox News.

Nine days later the surgeon was informed by Lake Region Healthcare, a hospital in Fergus Falls, that he could either resign or be fired.

At the meeting, the school board decided to put in place a mask mandate for elementary school students as a two-week experiment, according to KFGO-FM.

Horak spoke out against the mandate.

“I’m used to wearing masks. I’m not trying to do it while I’m running or playing in the gym or all that other stuff. These masks, you want to stop the virus. The example of it is like trying to stop a mosquito with a chain-link fence, good luck,” he said, according to KFGO-FM.

Horak said parents are the ones who should be making decisions about masks.

“Who does God put in charge of these kids? Their parents. God gave each one of these kids … to their parents, and they speak for them. They may be wrong, they may be dumb, they may be perfect in their decisions. But it’s still their responsibility. It’s not yours. God gave it to them. Honor their wishes, either side of the fence,” he said.

Horak said he was then told his “views were no longer congruent with that of Lake Region Healthcare” and he had to choice to quit or be fired, Fox reported.

“We live in America where freedoms are held close. I am a man who believes individuals have the right to do their research and decide what is best for them and their children when it comes to their health. I don’t believe governments or institutions should dictate that,” Horak said in a post-dismissal statement published by KVRR-TV.

In his statement, Horak said there were many possible reasons for his termination, adding “perhaps my termination is because I was empowering the parents.”

Dr. Greg Smith, the president of the Medical Group Board for the Lake Region Medical Group, said the board made the “decision to discontinue Dr. Jeff Horak’s employment contract after a thorough review process,” according to a statement given to Fox.

“The reasons for Dr. Horak’s separation are a confidential matter,” Smith said. “To be clear, this was a decision that was made by Dr. Horak’s peers who serve on the Medical Group Board, not by Lake Region Healthcare, the community-based hospital where Dr. Horak practiced General Surgery.”

Local residents rallied on behalf of Horak.

“This isn’t a conservative vs. liberal, or vaxed vs. unvaxed, or mask vs. no mask issue,” rally organizer Angie Brown said, according to Fox.

“This is an issue of right vs. wrong, and I am so happy that so many in our community recognized this wrong and were willing to show up, both to support Dr. Horak, but to also, in a peaceful way, voice their disagreement with Lake Region Medical Group,” she continued.

Horak spoke at the rally, noting that in the current climate, freedom is in danger.

“One, you’re becoming aware that your freedoms are being taken away. Two, professionals such as myself are being silenced, and then so are you. If it happens to me, it can happen to all of us,” Horak said. “And third, you’re afraid. We’re all afraid. Today I want to empower you to say, ‘I stand up with Dr. Horak. Truly, I stand with you.'”
