Florida Win Against Vaccine Passports for Cruises: Court Orders Preliminary Injunction Against CDC Mandate

On Friday, the state of Florida won a court victory against the United State government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The court decision restrained the CDC’s effort to require, in the name of countering coronavirus, that cruise lines implement vaccine passport requirements and various other CDC-defined mandates on cruises.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been pursuing a two-prong effort against a mandate from the CDC that cruise lines impose vaccine passport requirements for cruises. As I wrote about earlier this month, DeSantis has been both threatening fines against cruise lines that require cruise participants to have taken experimental coronavirus vaccines and challenging in court the legality of the CDC mandate.

How Ron Paul Stopped the US Government from Imposing a National Vaccine Passport

Who do Americans have to thank for the United States government not subjecting them to a national vaccine passport like those being imposed by national governments in Europe? Megan Redshaw wrote in a Wednesday article at Children’s Health Defense that the credit goes to Ron Paul who, while serving as a member of the US House of Representatives, led the effort to bar the US government from creating for each American a “unique health identifier” number.

At the time, Kucinich had not yet announced his candidacy.

Susan Ashbrook, RIP

It is is with deep personal sadness that I must announce the death of a former Ron Paul Congressional staffer from down here in Dr. Paul's old Congressional district, TX-14. Susan Ashbrook died yesterday of a heart attack after a long illness. As Dr. Paul's aide in Washington for Veterans Affairs, I worked on a regular basis with Susan. I cannot tell you how much I learned from her about the way the US government treats young men and women who sign up to serve their country in the US military.

Everyone Should Take the Experimental Coronavirus Vaccines? Nope.

A multitude of politicians and people in the media have been saying everyone should take experimental coronavirus vaccines, some of which are not even vaccines under the normal meaning of the term. In presenting this plea, many of these individuals have repeatedly described the experimental coronavirus vaccine shots as safe, despite the fact sheets for the vaccines at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website having indicated all along that, rather than being safe, the shots carry many known health risks, as well as unknown risks because of incomplete and rushed testing

The Drug Policy Alliance’s Queer Agenda

You might think of the Drug Policy Alliance as a single-issue organization focused on ending the war on drugs. In fact, in a section titled “A Broad Coalition” at the “About Us” page of the organization’s website, the Drug Policy Alliance declares that “Our supporters are individuals who believe the war on drugs must end.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Versus the US Government’s Effort to Impose Vaccine Passports for Cruises

Florida has been the primary embarkation location in America for cruises. It is thus a big deal that Ron DeSantis, the state’s governor, is fighting against the United States government’s effort, undertaken via demands placed on cruise lines, to impose vaccine passport requirements for passengers boarding cruises leaving from Florida.

The US government’s effort is aimed at ensuring that all or nearly all cruise passengers show proof that they have taken experimental coronavirus vaccine shots in order to board ships in America. If DeSantis prevails in Florida, hopefully the US government’s vaccine passports scheme for cruises will fail across the country.
