Biden says mandatory COVID-19 vaccines for military ‘a tough call’

President Biden has not dismissed requiring all U.S. service members to get a COVID-19 vaccine once the shot is fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but says the decision is a “tough call.”

“I don’t know. I’m going to leave that to the military,” Biden told NBC News’s Craig Melvin in an interview broadcast Friday.

“I’m not saying I won’t. I think you’re going to see more and more of them getting it. And I think it’s going to be a tough call as to whether or not they should be required to have to get it in the military, because you’re in such close proximity with other military personnel.”ADVERTISEMENT

Roughly 780,000 service members, or close to one-third of the total force, are partially or fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to the latest Department of Defense numbers.

All Pentagon personnel and their beneficiaries are now eligible to receive a vaccine, in line with the rest of the U.S. population, but thousands have chosen to forgo the shot. Because the vaccines were approved under the FDA’s emergency-use authorization, military officials can’t mandate the inoculation.

Adding to the headache, the Pentagon does not track how many military members reject the vaccine, making it difficult to pinpoint why troops, sailors and airmen are holding off.ADVERTISEMENT

When asked about the issue later on Friday, national security advisor Jake Sullivan said a vaccine mandate is “something the Department of Defense is looking at in consultation with the interagency process and [I] don’t have anything to add on that subject today.”

He would not say whether Biden had any political concerns about ordering such a mandate.

Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Terry Adirim said earlier this month that officials have heard anecdotally and through surveys that younger people may feel that they’re not as vulnerable to COVID-19 and that the risk of vaccine side effects is higher than contracting the virus — “which, of course, we know not to be true.”

Others are waiting to allow shots to go to individuals who may be more at risk to the illness, Adirim added.ADVERTISEMENT

But some lawmakers want Biden to go ahead and make the vaccine a service member requirement, with a group of seven Democratic lawmakers in March urging him to do just that.

The Pentagon, meanwhile, has not ruled out a mandatory vaccination order.

“Obviously we’re thinking about what happens when they become FDA-approved, that certainly would … change the character of the decision-making process about whether they could be mandatory or voluntary, but I don’t want to get ahead of that process right now,” Defense Department press secretary John Kirby told reporters in early March.

Almost arrested for a third time in Red Wing, Minnesota, for not wearing a mask, at a business started in America, but now manufacturing using Vietnamese slave labor, “Red Wing Shoes”

Almost arrested for a third time in Red Wing, Minnesota, for not wearing a mask, at a business started in America, but now manufacturing using Vietnamese slave labor, “Red Wing Shoes”

Almost got arrested again for not wearing a mask in Red Wing, Minnesota. Of all places, it was at the thing most people know Red Wing for, Red Wing Shoes.

They aren’t even made in America, at least they are made in Vietnam not China, but small difference. Both places were ravaged by our elites with communism, and after tens of millions were brutally murdered, our elites use Vietnam and China as slave labor. Now, they are trying to destroy our economy with these masks, and turn us into slaves too, and TENS OF MILLIONS OF USEFUL IDIOT AMERICANS ARE COOPERATING WITH THEM.

The police came, but, really didn’t want to arrest me. I told them be my guest, arrest me, the charges won’t stick anyways. Already got off twice, make it a third time. I told the woman police officer she had no business being a police officer too.

Man proposes, God disposes.

“Duty is ours, the consequences are Gods.”

I told the police officers if they wanted to solve the problem, go arrest the owners of the Federal Reserve. I told them just because the owners of the federal reserve print out all this fake money and buy businesses, while throwing us in jail if we print out fake money, doesn’t mean they get to make the rules.

When the police arrived, I deliberately had my back to them, and as they approached, I told them in a loud voice, “READ MY SHIRT”!

It said, and I quote verbatim, “I protect my First Amendment rights, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”, WITH THE SECOND AMENDMENT, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

After this excitement, I didn’t bring my cell phone, but the views of the Mississippi River from Red Wing are spectacular. Red Wing is named for the chiefs of the Dakota Sioux Indians who the French missionaries first found here, they wore a feather dyed red in their headdress.

Hiked to the top of the spectacular Barn Bluff, which was considered sacred ground by the Dakota Sioux. Right after I left it started thundering and lightning, to the Sioux Indians, this meant the thunder Gods were at work.

Media Hides Consequences of Single Parenting


In 1960, 9% of US Children were raised in single-parent families. By 2020 this had risen to 23% ( the highest proportion compared to 7% in the rest of the world.)

Single-Mother Household Facts Suppressed by Liberal Media

by Martha Rosenberg


In today’s “woke” cultural climate, there are certain things you can’t say. 

You can’t say that chromosomes, and not surgery, hormones, and clothes, determine gender. 

You can’t say that 38,000 illegal immigrants are currently in U.S. prisons. 

And you can’t say that children from single-mother households have issues.


Twelve years ago, in her 2009 book “Guilty: Liberal ‘Victims’ and Their Assault on America,” conservative author Ann Coulter proposed exactly that in a chapter called “Victim of a Crime? Thank a Single Mother” and received immediate and lasting media black eyes.

It wasn’t that Coulter didn’t do her statistical homework. She documented that children raised in single-mother homes “are five times more likely to commit suicide, nine times more likely to drop out of high school, 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances, 14 times more likely to commit rape (for the boys), 20 times more likely to end up in prison, and 32 times more likely to run away from home.”

It wasn’t that Coulter blamed divorced, separated, and widowed women, who often are victims of circumstance, in her indictment; she confined her wrath to those who choose to be a single mother.

No, Coulter’s problem was that stating the truth was a micro-aggressionIt was mean and hurt people’s feelings, yelled the women on The View–in unison–when she appeared on the show.

Yet, Coulter wasn’t alone in her sociological audacity and its result.

“Mentioning the cultural catastrophe brought about by single-parent households may be ‘insensitive,'” read an editorial in the News and Record, “but ignoring the source of the problem will solve nothing.” 

The problem? Like Coulter, the editorial cited “about 70 percent of the perpetrators hail from single-parent households.”

Scientific research confirms some of the correlations. 

“Growing up in single-parent families is associated with an elevated risk of involvement in crime by adolescents,” the authors of a study published in June 2020 wrote in the journal Psychology, Crime & Law. “More research is needed to determine the effects of the different constituting events of single-parent families.”

Growing up in a single-parent family also “has negative effects on children’s emotional well-being, cognitive development, and school performance,” and correlates with “poor school adjustment,” the authors add.

Children, notably boys, who grew up in a single-parent household commit the highest number of high-profile gun crimes says author and activist Warren Thomas Farrell.

“There’s common denominators among mass shooters, the most obvious is that they’re male–98 percent are male. A second common denominator is that they’re almost all dad-deprived males,” Farrell told The Epoch Times in April.

These young criminals “are deprived of their dads” and likely “feeling neglected and depressed,” said Farrell, the chair of the Coalition to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men.

As a reporter, I’ve also noted negative emotional consequences, such as feelings of guilt, in people who grew up in single-parent homes.

“My mother was always telling me what sacrifices she made for me and how she had given her whole life to me,” Michael, who sought recovery from addiction, told me. “She was all alone and it was difficult, almost impossible, for me to find my own partner in life. I felt so responsible for her. I still do.”

The negative results of growing up in single-parent homes, whether on society or on children, are too often buried.
