A former Army JAG now in private practice told The Star News Network that he has seen senior military commanders overrule physicians, pressure them to reverse their opinions, and rescind COVID-19 vaccine exemptions from service members who had been granted them.
Sean Timmons, a military law expert at Tully Rinckey, said directives to take the shots are illegal, as is the use of pressure to bring doctors’ positions in line with the desires of military command.
“By just having a doctor rubber-stamp whatever action the command wants is not complying with his ethical duty to provide care independent of duress from unethical actors,” he told the network.
“That to me is wholly unlawful because you’re removing the patient and provider privilege and you’re removing the ethical concern the doctor has as a duty to treat a patient.”
Timmons said he personally knows an Army doctor who was punished for giving one soldier an exemption to the COVID vaccine.
“That physician was removed from his job and then overruled, and they made the soldier see another doctor who then complied with the mandate from higher command to deny medical waivers and medical exemptions,” he said.
Speaking just days after the Army National Guard vowed to begin punishing thousands of members for not receiving the COVID vaccine, Timmons stressed that such actions are illegal.
“The COVID-19 vaccine directive to take the shot that’s being provided at this time is an unlawful order because it is a medication, not really a vaccine,” he told the network. “The medication is experimental and it is not effective to the extent advertised.”Timmons said he and Tully Rinckey have already successfully argued the mandate is unlawful before separation boards, an administrative board convened when a branch of the military desires to expel service members for poor job performance or other reasons.Department of Defense […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
