New mom Stefanik should back vaccines for medical workers
Lewis County General Hospital in Lowville is reluctantly discontinuing its maternity care services because a number of employees in that unit have refused to become vaccinated against the coronavirus.
It is worth noting that Lewis County is in the congressional district represented by Elise Stefanik. It is also worth noting that Rep. Stefanik recently gave birth to her first child, and for that we offer her and her husband our sincere congratulations.
When she has recovered from the birth, it would seem humane and logical for Rep. Stefanik to strongly urge all hospital employees in her district to get vaccinated, to follow the mandates of state government and President Biden.
To do this, she must break free of the political stranglehold placed on national vaccination efforts by many in the Republican Party, for which Rep. Stefanik is now a congressional leader.
No doubt the hospital employees and mothers-to-be of Lewis County, regardless of political party, would greatly benefit.
Americans need to push back on Biden
First, Joe Biden pulls our troops out of Afghanistan in a disgraceful and humiliating manner, leaving behind many American citizens and allies and billions in the latest military equipment.
Then, he dictatorially imposes a vaccine mandate on virtually everyone, violating constitutional rights and potentially leaving businesses crippled and many people jobless.
That’s just the latest, not to speak of an open southern border, killing our oil and gas independence, increasing inflation and so on.
Biden’s election validity continues to be probed by several states. He and his insane Democratic Party — the party of slavery, Jim Crow and segregation — sow seeds of dissension, silence free speech and denigrate our country as inherently evil. They have their own storm troopers — Antifa and Black Lives Matter, both anti-democratic in philosophy and tactics.
I expect Biden will continue his demolition of America so that our list of grievances against him will exceed those against King George III in our Declaration of Independence. The difference is Britain was a foreign power, but we’re dealing with enemies among us, creating internal demoralization and becoming increasingly totalitarian.
If Americans don’t organize and push back hard now, with God’s help, resistance will eventually become futile.
