The CDC, OSHA, and common sense are clear. Businesses that mandate their employees, whether new hires or current, to take the Covid-19 vaccines as a requirement for employment are liable for lawsuits if ANY adverse reactions occur. As we’ve documented many times on NOQ Report, there have been a slew of reports of major negative reactions to the Covid-19 vaccines, including paralysis, brain clots, and death.
Mainstream media is doing their part in not reporting on these as much as possible, covering up anything that goes against the accepted narrative regarding these vaccines. But as the cases mount up, even the puppets in media are starting to ask questions. Should people be concerned? Yes. Should businesses, schools, or anyone require vaccines as conditions for anything? Absolutely not.
Nevertheless, more and more businesses are starting to make these vaccines a requirement for employment. Delta is the latest to make big news over it. And as Newsbusters pointed out, mainstream media is covering for them:
The media have embraced a dystopian vision by encouraging businesses to mandate vaccines as a prerequisite for employment. The woke company Delta Air Lines has reportedly caved to anti-freedom and un-American pressure from the left.
Business Insider reported that Delta Air Lines “will mandate COVID-19 vaccines for new hires.” In addition, “the company may stop current staff members from working on international flights if they refuse a vaccine, its CEO [Ed Bastian] said.” Bastian reportedly told CNN May 13 that “‘[a]ny person joining Delta in the future, a future employee, we’re going to mandate they be vaccinated before they can sign up with the company.’” Delta’s decision followed weeks of a cacophony of media outlets propping up the idea that businesses either should or could force prospective employees to disclose their private medical histories as a condition of employment.
Back in December, I started writing about the need for businesses to mandate vaccinations when they became widely available. Now they’re widely available. If business is genuine about helping society, they have an opportunity to prove it right now.
Barron’s also published an absurd op-ed headlined, “Let Employers Mandate Vaccines.”
The leftist Center for American Progress (CAP) released an article on how “Employers Can Accelerate COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts.” Here was one of CAP’s prescriptions: “Consider requiring vaccination if employees’ jobs involve a high degree of COVID-19 risk to themselves, consumers, or the general public.”
The Washington Post published a story May 4 snarkily headlined, “Yes, it’s legal for businesses and schools to require you to get a coronavirus vaccine.”
Business magazine Fast Company published a piece May 13 virtue-signaling to businesses: “If you want to put employees’ minds at ease, showing that you’re striving to provide a fully vaccinated workplace will go a long way—and a mandate is the surest way to accomplish that goal.”
CBS News published an April 13 story, headlined: “Can businesses require proof of vaccination? Experts say yes.”
Lest we forget, the Covid-19 “vaccines” are not FDA-approved. They are considered to be experimental gene-manipulation drugs that may or may not reduce infection rates. But when we look at the first half of May, we see that a mostly vaccinated America is still pacing much higher than the previous May at the height of Covid infections:
May, 2020, was a devastating month for America. We were over a month past the “15 days to slow the spread” and Covid-19 cases were spiking across the country. Nursing home deaths were mounting and Big Pharma companies were racing to get to their big payday, also known as the launch of their Covid-19 vaccines.
A year later, we have the vaccines. Over 100 million Americans have been vaccinated, which means that things are much better than they were a year ago, right? Actually, no. According to the Worldometers database which is the authority on Covid-19 cases worldwide, the United States has more cases in the first 13 days of May, 2021, than we did in May, 2020. It’s not even close.
The first 13 days of May last year saw 340,463 new cases of Covid-19 reported. That number has jumped up a whopping 47.4% year-over-year for the first 13 days of May, 2021 with 521, 027 new cases reported.
If that doesn’t seem to make sense, you’re thinking for yourself. If you’re scrambling to make excuses about better testing now or reduced restrictions and lockdown mandates, you’re still thinking like the government, mainstream media, and Big Pharma want you to think. Their mentality is this, “Take the vaccine because we said to. Researching it for yourself or looking at the facts must not happen. And above all else, do not ask questions. Those are forbidden.”
It isn’t just mandates that would leave businesses liable, either. According to multiple legal sources, even incentives that are restricted only to those who receive the vaccine are questionable at best and may open up businesses to other types of discrimination lawsuits. Bob Unruh from WND explains it all nicely in a recent article:
Vaccine mandate comes with liabilities for employers
‘If you require your employees to be vaccinated any adverse reaction is work-related’
The COVID-19 mask mandate, mostly, has been taken off the backs of Americans just this week, and Joe Biden’s White House credits the vaccines, which were developed under President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed program, for raising the general level of immunity to COVID-19.
So a lot schools and universities and other organizations have made those vaccinations mandatory to attend coming classes and events.
But for employers, such a demand also could create a serious liability.
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration has released guidance that notes, “In general, an adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine is recordable if the reaction is: (1) work-related, (2) a new case, and (3) meets one or more of the general recording criteria in 29 CFR 1904.7 (e.g., days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, medical treatment beyond first aid).”
Further, OSHA explains, “If you require your employees to be vaccinated as a condition of employment (i.e., for work-related reasons), then any adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine is work-related. The adverse reaction is recordable if it is a new case under 29 CFR 1904.6 and meets one or more of the general recording criteria in 29 CFR 1904.7.”
Liberty Counsel, a legal team that advocates for individual and religious rights, notes that to avoid liability, employers “should not require employees to receive any COVID shot.”
Doing otherwise could impact their official safety record.
“Some employers are now offering financial incentives, opportunities to win prizes, or paid time off to receive the COVID shots. Employees who chose not to receive the ‘voluntary’ injection and therefore miss an opportunity to receive a prize could argue they suffered ‘repercussions’ for their choice,” the legal team continued.
“In addition, the ‘professional advancement’ of an unvaccinated employee who is not permitted to work at a particular job site may be affected.”
Liberty Counsel explained that none of the new COVID shots is approved or licensed by the Food and Drug Administration yet. They’ve been in use under the Emergency Use Authorization, which technically means that cannot be forced or required.
They were given emergency use authorization by the Health and Human Services department last year, which means people must be told the risks and benefits, and they have the right to decline a medication that is not fully licensed.
“In addition to this federal law, the FDA includes the Nuremberg Code and the Helsinki Declaration on its website, emphasizing the fact that people cannot be forced to take experimental drugs without their full consent,” Liberty Counsel said.
“Forcing employees to receive one of these experimental COVID injections is a violation of federal law. The COVID injections are not licensed by the FDA and are still in the investigation and experimental phase. No employer or government may force or coerce anyone to take these injections. Federal law requires full informed consent. Employers that require employees to take a COVID shot may be held liable for adverse reactions and death,” said Liberty Counsel chief Mat Staver.
Employers forcing employees, new or old, to take the non-FDA-approved experimental Covid-19 “vaccines” are completely liable for ANY adverse reactions. With nearly 5000 people dead following the vaccines already, business owners should think twice.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are pacing to be short by about $3700 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
