BREAKING: Biden Rages At Unvaccinated Americans During Angry Speech; Says He’s “Frustrated” As He Enforces New Mandates
On Thursday, Joe Biden further divided the nation by saying that he “understands” the anger and frustration towards Americans who are weary of the vaccine. He then doubled down and blamed the unvaccinated for all the covid-related problems in our country.
“Our patience is wearing thin,” Biden threatened. “Your refusal has cost all of us”, he added.
He then stoked more anger against the unvaccinated, saying that 200 million Americans+ are “frustrated” with Americans who have decided not to get vaccinated.
Biden said the vaccinated are doing the “right thing”, implying that the unvaccinated are doing the “wrong thing”, putting a target on the back of 80 million Americans.
At another point, Biden told the unvaccinated to “be prepared to pay.”
Well, somebody is gonna pay for this, yeah. We’ll find out who it ends up being soon enough, fuckface.
Honestly though, I must confess that Occupation Government El Jefe Faux Jaux Biden made several statements today with which—UNEXPECTED!!!™—I am in complete agreement (in bold):
“What more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations free, safe, and convenient,” Biden continued. “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden intoned.
“Free, safe, and convenient?” Well, one out of three (free, that would be) ain’t bad, and marks a tremendous improvement on Jaux’s usual ratio. But yeah, patience has definitely worn thin for a lot of us out here, and it’s nearly impossible to find any reason to stay our hand. Jaux’s explicit threat to use authority which the federal junta in no legal sense possesses, in order to bend the arms of defiant free-state governors *cough cough DeSantis cough cough* up between their shoulder blades should they refuse to immediately bend the knee was a nice touch, too.
He also issued a veiled threat to Republican governors who have resisted imposing tyrannical measures on their constituents. “If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I’ll use my power as president to get them to,” he said.
The US Constitution grants the president no such power. Lucky for ol’ Jaux, said Constitution has long since been rendered null and void. But hark! Do mine ears perceive the faint stirrings of resistance from unlikely, long-slumbering corners?
Biden’s draconian mandate on employers has inspired some pointed responses from Republicans.
Yawn. Who the fuck cares. You want “pointed” from a Repub, there’s but one place to bother looking for it. And it assuredly is not Vichy GOPers like Kevin McRINO.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to Biden’s draconian mandates during a press conference Thursday afternoon.
“How could we get to the point in this country where you would not let them earn a living because of their choice on the vaccine? I just think that’s fundamentally wrong. I do not believe that people should lose their jobs over this issue, and we will fight that,” he said.
“I just think that the more this becomes coercive, where people have threatened mandates, and firing, and business consequences, the more he does that, the more people it alienates,” DeSantis added. “I do not believe people should lose their jobs over this issue, and we will fight that.”
DeSantis went on to say that he didn’t think the White House had the authority to impose a rule like that on employers.
“We would obviously support protections for people who just want to earn a living,” he said.
And with that sweet, sweet DeSantis-trademark defiance—I WILL NOT COMPLY, JOE, AND YOU CAN GO AND FUCK YOURSELF—America’s Governor yet again makes it clear that, one way or another, all freedom-loving Real Americas are going to wind up relocating to the Sunshine State for the last desperate stand. But hark! again. Do mine ears perceive another roar of defiance? Why yes, I believe they do.
JD Vance calls for mass civil disobedience in response to Biden's mandates.

Well said, JD, and right on the button. There’s been a groundswell of disapproval and distrust for Vance of late in certain Alt-American quarters for various reasons, some of which I can maybe understand. But I can’t honestly say I concur with that; I have no real problem with JD myself, and Lord knows he’s on the beam on this one. Meanwhile, Tyler Durden puts a little meat on the bare bones above for us.
- Biden to require ‘vast majority’ of federal workers and contractors to get vaccinated or test weekly
- Biden expected to ask Labor Department for for rule on mandatory vaccinations
- ‘Some’ exemptions for disability, religion
- Psaki refuses to answer ‘my body, my choice’ question over vaccinations
Update (1452ET): President Biden will speak at 5pm ET, where he is expected to announce what’s already been leaked – that most federal workers and contractors will be required to get vaccinated after a 75-day ‘ramp-up’ period. If workers decline to receive shots in that time frame, they will be subject to termination.
“We would like to be a model for what we think other business and organizations should do around the country,” said White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Further, Biden is expected to announce that the Department of Labor will compel employers with over 100 workers to mandate vaccines, or weekly testing.
Employers who don’t abide by the new policy will face “substantial fines up to nearly $14,000 per violation,” according to a senior Biden official (via PBS). What’s more, Biden will require health care workers at hospitals which take Medicare and Medicaid to be vaccinated – impacting over 17 million workers.
As resistance to President Biden’s booster-shot push grows, it appears the administration is – just as we expected – upping the pressure on federal workers who haven’t yet been vaccinated – while asking private businesses to do the same. According to CNN, the Biden Admin will no longer allow workers to get tested weekly instead of taking the vaccine. Instead, he’s signing an executive order Thursday requiring all workers to get the vaccine or face indefinite suspension.
What’s more, Biden’s order will extend to employees of government contractors. Per CNN, the same standard will be extended to employees of contractors who do business with the federal government. The Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Indian Health Service and National Institute of Health will also complete their previously announced vaccination requirements, which the White House believes has covered 2.5MM people.
This marks a significant escalation since earlier in the summer, when Biden unveiled a requirement that federal workers be vaccinated, but allowed for those who opted out to be subject to stringent mitigation measures like weekly tests.
And that, folks, is a wrap for America That Was.
As is his wont, Biden’s statement was shot through with falsehood after deception after misdirection, all of it provably and entirely untrue, from the first word to the last. Construction of the House Of Covid—a prison, more correctly, its foundation bricked with lies from its very inception—is now finished. It lacks only its assigned complement of NonVaxxed inmates to be complete. It must be burned to the ground by Patriots instead, without further ado.
With this undeniably tyrannical Imperial Decree, whoever is manipulating the marionette strings that make Biden’s mouth move opened fire on Ft Sumter, so to speak. The final curtain has dropped on the ragged remnants of freedom; whatever few tattered, torn scraps that still remained of our long-since-defunct Constitution have been set alight to burn away forever. We have examined and analyzed and discussed it long and passionately, here and elsewhere, over and again. Today, the discussion has well and truly ended. Today, the time has come when every American must make that most grim of choices, in close consultation with his own conscience and courage, each for himself. Will I resist, or will I comply? Will I fight to reassert my precious liberty? Or will I shirk my duty to myself and my posterity by accepting the bit of tyranny, staining the noble legacy of my Forefathers with the shameful, cowardly taint of surrender?
This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth—to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House?
Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation—the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?
No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer on the subject? Nothing.
We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.
Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.
Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope.
If we wish to be free—if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending—if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak—unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!”—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775
If anyone has ever said it better or more movingly than that brilliant and indomitable giant among men, I certainly haven’t heard about it. And if those words fail to stir your blood and inflame your very soul with the will to stand against the mightiest imaginable foe, to either live in freedom at all and any cost or to perish with honor in the pursuit of it, then you damned sure ain’t no countryman of mine.
