The Tennessee Conservative [By Paula Gomes] –
In the filing of a Petition for Rulemaking, that Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti joined along with 20 other attorney generals, calling for the repeal of the federal vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, Skrmetti also claims that shots for Covid-19 don’t work as they do not prevent transmission.
Skrmetti joined a coalition of 21 states in requesting that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) repeal the unlawful federal vaccine mandate for healthcare workers and withdraw related guidance.
“Evidence continues to mount that the ongoing mandate is an unprecedented overreach of the Federal government and has exacerbated shortages of healthcare workers in Tennessee and other states,” said Attorney General Skrmetti. “This office will relentlessly protect Tennesseans from federal overreach.”
Skrmetti signed on to the Petition which states in part:
Studies show that the compelled vaccination of millions of healthcare workers will not meaningfully limit COVID transmission. And Pfizer never tested the vaccine to determine if it was effective at preventing transmission.
Studies also show that the vaccines carry increased health risks among normally healthy populations.
David Tulis of NoogaRadio 96.9 FM takes issue, however, with Skrmetti’s defense of Governor Bill Lee whose response to Covid-19, he claims, led to more than 100,000 Tennesseans losing their lives.
Tulis says the admissions in the Petition “are refreshing, even breathtaking, that the defense department biowarfare project using an untested medical product that has already killed 101,800 Tennesseans is, well, harmful to people.”
The Petition also states:
No data at the time conclusively demonstrated that the vaccines would prevent infection and transmission. Indeed, fully vaccinated individuals contracted and transmitted COVID-19.
Tulis is suing Governor Lee over his actions during the pandemic in issuing a state of emergency. Tulis says, “The chief harm is that there exists no non fraudulent exigency, necessity, requirement, warrant or lawful reason for a state of emergency for a slight variation in the annual cold. Gov. Lee’s acts were without a legal basis, and abrogated the rights of 7 million people, who thanked him for the abuse by re-electing him Nov. 8.”
According to Tulis, Skrmetti has no comment on what Tulis says is a violation of Tenn. Code Ann. § 68-5-104, a breach that he says “brought the state into this greatest disaster in its history and its abrogation of the constitution and overthrow of lawful government.”
