A California sheriff announced that he will absolutely not be enforcing any vaccine mandate on employees of his department – saying the government has “no authority to mandate your health choices.”
“Over the past couple of weeks, the idea of forced vaccination has caused much concern across the entire country,” Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said in a statement. “I will not enforce the vaccine mandate on Sheriff’s Department employees.”
“The government has no ability and no authority to mandate your health choices,” he said. “As your sheriff, I have an obligation to guard your liberty and freedom.”
Bianco and his family successfully recovered from the coronavirus last winter, and he added in his statement: “I am certainly not anti-vaccine; I am anti-vaccine for me.”
Bianco further noted that he was inspired to release the statement after he conducted a podcast on forced vaccinations, and said a local newspaper would use “cherry picked” comments from “supposed” health officials “in an attempt to paint me and the Sheriff’s department in a negative light.”
“This is nothing but sensationalism trying to gain readership and further divide us as Americans.”
Throughout the pandemic Bianco has been rather vocal in his commitment to individual freedoms over government control. Bianco refused to enforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s tyrannical COVID-19 stay-at-home order last year.
“These closures and stay-at-home orders are flat-out ridiculous,” Bianco said at the time.
“The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will not be blackmailed, bullied or used as muscle against Riverside County residents in the enforcement of the governor’s order,” he added.
He also slammed the state’s liberal governor as “hypocritical,” citing the controversial photos of Newsom last fall dining in a swanky restaurant maskless and surrounded by people from outside of his own household.
Bianco’s comments refuting the mandate come after members of the Los Angeles Police Department filed a federal lawsuit over the weekend to overturn the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
A professor in California also recently filed a lawsuit against the University of California school system’s Board of Regents and president over a coronavirus vaccine mandate, which he argued he does not need because of his natural immunity against the virus.
Despite propaganda used by the mainstream media and politicians looking to force vaccinations, the American public as a whole are not in favor of vaccine mandates – and Biden’s approval rating is the best example of that.
The president’s approval rating on the virus of Chinese origin has sunk underwater after he placed vaccine mandates on mid-sized to large businesses and federal employees and contractors.
According to Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll, only 48 percent of U.S. adult respondents approve of Biden’s handling of the coronavirus crisis with 49 disapproving. Back in August, those numbers were flipped. 53 percent approved and 40 percent disapproved.
In just one month, Biden’s disapproval rating on coronavirus has jumped nine points while his approval rating has shrunk five points.
The terrible numbers for Biden on his strongest issue going into the 2020 election seem to be due to his newly announced mandates which, during his campaign for president, he claimed he was not in favor of.
The respondents also revealed in the poll that 70 percent of Americans say they are dissatisfied with Biden’s America. Only 29 percent said they are “very satisfied” with America after former President Trump left office.
It’s also worth noting that Quinnipiac University poll is known as a notoriously Democrat leaning poll known to be heavily biased in their favor – meaning the real ratings of Joe Biden may be much worse than the poll suggests.
