Get Down, Dig it Baby!  Thank God for the Many Officers in Blue who are True!

“It cannot be mandated. It’s that simple. Our members don’t want to be mandated to do anything like that,” said the union president, John Catanzara. “This vaccine has no studies for long-term side effects or consequences. None. To mandate anybody to get that vaccine, without that data as a baseline, amongst other issues, is a ‘Hell, no’ for us.”

“We are a union, and we will defend our members,” FOP executive director Jim Pasco told Axios last month. “You cannot tell people what to do. It’s still an individual and personal choice.”

Catanzara also likened the vaccine mandates to the Holocaust, saying, “We’re in America, g*ddamn it. We don’t want to be forced to do anything. Period. This ain’t Nazi f***ing Germany, [where they say], ‘Step into the f***ing showers. The pills won’t hurt you.’ What the f***?”

BRAVO Mr. Catanzara for using genuine unadulterated 100% Octane non-sugar coated speech during a global crisis and damned WAR brought down upon the citizens by an arrogant maniacal scheming and most nefarious group of globalist bastards that want us all stripped of our FREEDOM and GOD; then what NEXT, a walk into the ovens?!!!  I too have always been a union man  and when a union has quality leadership like you it serves the true intended purpose of preserving and protecting the members God given, human and civil rights as a worker from the consequences of tyrannical employers; something socialist/communist societies do now allow but instead split skulls if the worker protests; something little socialist wise-ass AOC and the Stupid Commie Squad don’t care about, which was even the case here less than a century ago!!!

I happen to know that China with the ever so evil little man Gates have been in talks about; mobile extermination units that would take care of those individuals flagged for disintegration!  Don’t you see what is being planned?  Stop gazing at your damn smart phones while you’re not seeing the forest for the trees; that behavior is what these nefarious want you to do, that which makes you more stupid and as dumb as a stump or my dog for God’s sake!!!

Just this week I posted commentary to supplement what I thought was a fine blog site which I’ve posted countless words, to share my inner most being and thoughts with the world to encourage TRUTH not more LIES, which has been the ROOT PROBLEM over the last Year and a Half PSYOP, with MSM paving the way for the evil monsters of this world to subdue us all, and then rule as the Pharaohs of Egypt once did, bringing us back to dark ancient archaic Pagan Secularized Heathen Totalitarian Control!

I believe it’s far past the time most if not all of us should have been “spilling our guts” as the saying goes to say what we “MUST” to stop this evil!  That site I refer to thought that my saying the Fraud Pope’s message that getting the jab is as he put it, “an ACT OF LOVE!!!” I said, “Hey Bergoglio; why don’t you go to the  highest mountaintop and jump!”  That would be an “ACT of Love!” This fraud pope promoting wickedness and death even propped up the Abortion King Biden; that is the least thing I could have said!  So my speech from my heart and soul to counter an evil SOB that walks around calling himself Pope and is nothing but an Evil Cohort of Satan and an Apostate of Hell getting involved and so immersed into Ways of the World Systems of Politics, which No “Vicar of Christ” is supposed to do; as the original first one “Saint Peter” would agree with me I’m sure!

I’m a fighter and warrior for God, not some milk toast pussy cat that poses online saying a lot of shit that I think people want to hear so they can follow me, or give me a damned like!  I don’t give a rat’s ass who likes me or what I say freely from my soul; I only want to say the TRUTH freely! Do all; of you know what it took to have a place where Free Speech is ALLOWED? Go to dammed North Korea and see what I mean!!!  Many Great People Died for this God Given Right that so many of you take so cavalierly now or don’t even respect; or care about it!

This is WAR and in War for you fools that don’t get it YET, it’s NO HOLDS BARRED and you do what is necessary to WIN THE WAR fighting back these determined megalomaniac killers who are coupled with Communist China who is seeking to take over America; and you do it with all you’ve got unless you want these bloody bastards to win and destroy you and your families!  I’ve had to engage in my own personal wars over the last at least 15 years fighting Nazi like government and corporations that think they have the system all sewn up and can trample under foot people like me and you ordinary people, who are God fearing and hardworking decent folks, not greedy and maligned like these despots all around us circling for the kill; because they have the corrupt networked power to do it, and get away with it, as the system is so polluted and sinful now to where you are all living on the doorstep to hell or riding the express train to the infernal pit! And in this hellish system, I had to be my own lawyer because the disgusting pukes that call themselves lawyers are nothing but money hungry greedy liars and mostly corrupted system appeasers; as they go along to get along! I won extremely hard fought battles of my own because I never quit till the job is done, and I won’t settle for anything less than Justice!

Lori Lightfoot mentioned in this article is nothing but an evil worldly corrupted human being with twisted demented agendas ruling in the same place that the ever so corrupted Obama came from as a so called community organizer and the only organized entity he was part of was Crime; with initial net worth of barely 1 Million, to be now a Billionaire, and for doing what, nothing but ruin; just like Lightfoot and she is the one who last summer allowed and encouraged the entire city of Chicago to turn into a place of bedlam and murder, as it skyrocketed to levels never seen there!  While she told the Cops to get lost and lets de-fund them; so who do you think she is taking her marching orders from, you know who!!! I could have been murdered in Chicago many years back when wet behind the ears, walking on foot almost into a trap for certain death, in the middle of the night, having to get out of the State, but, God stopped it so I could be here now; yes a miracle happened I shit you not! Turn your faith on and mean it; you hear!

Time to roll up the sleeves and come out swinging not pretend speech or thinking you can fight back with pussy cat efforts and weak kneed spineless angles of attack like the trash GOP has been doing or just like I wrote this week the same thing will happen that occurs when a fixed wing in flight is stalled or the angle of attack it not appropriate, the airplane goes into a full stall and loss of lift; then the graveyard spiral ensues to which there is no escape!!! Get you minds right people or I tell you this; sadly you will all be screwed and dead before your time! Stop playing your stupid internet games and looking for pats on the back or more money in your pocket! You do see the wicked running this country at the moment and that Biden has no intentions of saving America or any of you, from the mounting evil that is coming upon us fast!!! He’s been packing in un-vetted illegals and now Afghan refugees who are for all God knows going to possibly be terrorists in your communities perhaps even blowing themselves up with anyone they can!  Biden is a cause not an effect; he works for the Dark Side!

GET REAL!!!

Brother in Christ Jesus,

Police unions across the country look to stop mandatory vaccination among officers

As the White House steps up its push to increase vaccinations, police unions across the country are protesting local mandates, despite the number of COVID-19 deaths among officers.

Last month, when Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago said there would “absolutely” be a vaccine mandate for city employees, the local police union promised legal action.

“It cannot be mandated. It’s that simple. Our members don’t want to be mandated to do anything like that,” said the union president, John Catanzara. “This vaccine has no studies for long-term side effects or consequences. None. To mandate anybody to get that vaccine, without that data as a baseline, amongst other issues, is a ‘Hell, no’ for us.”

Catanzara also likened the vaccine mandates to the Holocaust, saying, “We’re in America, g*ddamn it. We don’t want to be forced to do anything. Period. This ain’t Nazi f***ing Germany, [where they say], ‘Step into the f***ing showers. The pills won’t hurt you.’ What the f***?”

Catanzara’s opposition to mandates is indicative of a larger trend across the nation’s law enforcement organizations. Meanwhile, three times more officers died of COVID-19 in 2020 than in firearm-related incidents, according to tracking from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) stated that 644 officers have died from the virus as of Sept. 10, but noted that “not all” of the deaths “have been verified.”

“We are a union, and we will defend our members,” FOP executive director Jim Pasco told Axios last month. “You cannot tell people what to do. It’s still an individual and personal choice.”

On Thursday, President Biden announced new measures in an attempt to increase vaccination rates across the country, as the Delta variant rages in some areas. One of those measures requires that all federal employees and contractors be vaccinated. Last month, the Pentagon said it was making the vaccine mandatory for 1.3 million active-duty service members.

Vaccination rates remain low among many police departments. Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michael Moore said that 51 percent of the department was vaccinated as of Aug. 31. Late last month, widows of some of the officers who have died from the disease were featured in a video issued to the department, encouraging officers to get vaccinated. According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, data showed that 85 percent of infected LAPD members were unvaccinated.

The Los Angeles City Council passed a mandate last month that would require all city employees to be vaccinated by early October, unless they have a medical or religious exemption, at which point they would receive weekly testing. The law doesn’t say what happens to employees who do not have a legitimate exemption and refuse to get the vaccine. Unions for the city’s police and firefighters have proposed an alternative, where members who do not wish to get vaccinated can submit to weekly testing.

In New York City, the local police union is demanding that unvaccinated officers who get tested for the virus must be allowed to do so during working hours, or receive overtime pay if they get tested while off the clock. The NYPD has pushed back, saying that officers should get tested off duty and will not be paid overtime for doing so. NYPD leaders also released data in late August showing that only 47 percent of the 35,000 uniformed officers and 18,000 civilian employees in the department were vaccinated.

“We lost three members last week, two of them to COVID, and I think it’s all unnecessary, to some degree,” NYPD commissioner Dermot Shea said in an Aug. 24 interview with NY1. “And I just, everyone I think, all across this country, really, should be embracing these vaccines.”

Police in Massachusetts are among the loudest critics of Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s proposed vaccine mandate for state employees. The State Police union, which represents 1,900 people, called the mandate a “surprise” and “crudely done.”

“It was hurried and rushed, with no input from any association,” said the union president, Mike Cherven.

At least one city has already carved out a special policy for officers. Portland, Ore., Mayor Ted Wheeler announced Wednesday that police would be exempt from the mandate that was issued for city employees, saying he was “disappointed that we can’t hold all of our City employees to the same vaccine requirement.” The city had announced on Aug. 30 that all its employees were required to be vaccinated or risk losing their jobs.

In an email exchange between the police union and city obtained by Willamette Week, an attorney for the Portland Police Association, wrote on Aug. 27 that “many first responders are deeply opposed to vaccine mandates; so deeply that some will leave the profession before accepting a mandate” and that “the city’s desire to mandate vaccinations for police and dispatch will ultimately exacerbate an already dangerous staffing crisis.”
