The Growing Rebellion Against COVID Policies (Updated)
By Neenah Payne
As an increasing number of mandates go into effect, we are beginning to see the resistance to these policies growing in equal measure. Here are some of the latest examples.
“In what appears to be one of the first cases of a union pushing back against the new COVID vaccination requirements handed down by the Biden Administration, a union representing pilots at Southwest Airlines is suing to stop the vaccine requirement from being forced until a lawsuit is resolved Bloomberg reports that the union representing Southwest’s pilots has asked a court to grant a temporary stay against the federal vaccination rules until an ongoing lawsuit over what they allege are violations of US labor laws is resolved.”
Are “vaccinated” pilots causing plane crashes?
Sen. Ron Paul: The Great Rebellion
“As we noted on Sunday, Southwest airlines canceled nearly 2,000 flights over the weekend – blaming the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and inclement weather. Oddly, no other major airlines had the same issues, while rumors swirled that airline employees had staged coordinated walk-outs (which their unions deny).”
This pilot’s call to action for all of us is really inspiring!

The article adds:
“On Monday, Southwest was once again at the top of the cancellation list, according to FlightAware – which lists 356 cancellations as of this writing (23% of the day’s 1,539 total cancellations), prompting Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) to tweet: ‘As a loyal Southwest customer who has been flying safely throughout the pandemic and is utterly opposed to vaccine mandates, I’m asking, stop the madness before more damage is done.’
Former US Senator Dr. Ron Paul may be on to something in a Monday op-ed via the Ron Paul Institute, when he calls it a rebellion (emphasis ours). The incredible cruelty and folly of forced vaccines finally came home to roost. The vaccine mandate backlash has been bubbling just under the surface, but now it has spilled out into the open, threatening to completely derail an already crumbling economy and to obliterate a deeply unpopular US President and Administration.”

“The incredible cruelty and folly of forced vaccines finally came home to roost. The vaccine mandate backlash has been bubbling just under the surface, but now it has spilled out into the open, threatening to completely derail an already crumbling economy and to obliterate a deeply unpopular US President and Administration.
Seemingly out of nowhere what appears to be a Southwest Airlines rebellion has taken flight this weekend. According to media reports, scores of pilots and other Southwest employees have coordinated the taking of “sick days” to use them up in advance of a Southwest Airlines mandate to get the jab or lose the job. Over Saturday and Sunday more than 2,000 flights have been cancelled, with airports experiencing full-on mayhem.
The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association is suing the airline over the imposed vaccine mandate, bolstering the claim that there is a “sick out” underway among angry Southwest pilots.
The mainstream media is doing its best to keep a lid on the expanding rebellion against the vaccine mandates, and Southwest Airlines itself is blaming the cancellations on bad weather and a lack of air traffic controllers. However, the weather problems that Southwest claims to be experiencing seem unique to that carrier: no other airline (thus far) is reporting such weather-related cancellations. And FAA spokesperson Steve Kulm told USA Today that “No FAA air traffic staffing shortages have been reported since Friday.”
Will other pilots, such as at American Airlines, follow suit? Rumors are circling that this is only the beginning.”
Once Celebrated Healthcare Workers Under Fire
“Around 16% of the New York state’s hospital workers, representing about 83,000 people, aren’t completely vaccinated. Roughly under 10% have not received a single shot.”
“States including New York, California, Rhode Island and Connecticut also set vaccine mandates for health care workers that take effect this week. But there are brewing concerns over staff shortages at already-overburdened hospitals still grappling with COVID-19 cases. Some hospital networks said they’ve ramped up hiring ahead of vaccine deadlines to stabilize their workforces. ABC News contributor John Brownstein, an epidemiologist and professor at Harvard Medical School, noted that while overall the number of health care workers being terminated or suspended isn’t huge, at the same time, ‘we can’t afford to lose anybody at this point.'”
“Monday is the vaccination deadline for New York State health care workers. Thousands of refusers have failed to meet it….They see their work as a badge of credibility, and the order from their bosses and the state to make a choice — get vaccinated or get fired — as a betrayal. ‘We were all traumatized, vaccinated and unvaccinated,’ said Ms. Conrad, who works at United Memorial, a hospital in Batavia, a small city midway between Rochester and Buffalo, and felt respected by colleagues there. ‘It’s very hard that the same people who elevated me to this level now look at me as a dangerous person.’…
The disagreement is also testing government’s power to mandate compliance with public-health measures; New York’s mandate and the state’s refusal to allow religious exemptions are the subject of at least two lawsuits, including one by Ms. Conrad and five other plaintiffs.”
Judge Overrules NY Governor
“A federal judge in Utica sided Tuesday with 17 health care workers who object to New York State’s vaccine mandate for health workers on religious grounds, granting their request for an injunction that stops the state from enforcing the policy for those who claim a religion-based objection. ‘There is no adequate explanation from defendants about why the ‘reasonable accommodation’ that must be extended to a medically exempt health care worker under 2.61 could not similarly be extended to a healthcare worker with a sincere religious objection,’ Judge David Hurd wrote.
Hurd’s preliminary injunction means New York will continue to be barred from enforcing any requirement that employers deny religious exemptions. Unlike other judges who have heard similar cases about vaccine mandates, Judge Hurd concluded ‘the public interest lies with enforcing the guarantees enshrined in the Constitution and federal anti-discrimination law’ and not the wider public health.
He wrote that the health care workers challenging suing the state were likely to succeed on the merits of their constitutional claim. ‘The question presented by this case is not whether plaintiffs and other individuals are entitled to a religious exemption from the state’s workplace vaccination requirement,’ he wrote. ‘Instead, the question is whether the state’s summary imposition of 2.61 conflicts with plaintiffs’ and other individuals’ federally protected right to seek a religious accommodation from their individual employers. The answer to this question is clearly yes. Plaintiffs have established that 2.61 conflicts with longstanding federal protections for religious beliefs and that they and others will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of injunctive relief.’
The plaintiffs said they hold the sincere religious belief that they ‘cannot consent to be inoculated…with vaccines that were tested, developed or produced with fetal cell lines derived from procured abortions.’
According to the plaintiffs, the COVID-19 vaccines that are currently available violate these sincere religious beliefs ‘because they all employ fetal cell lines derived from procured abortion in testing, development or production.’
Gov. Kathy Hochul’s administration began requiring workers at hospitals and nursing homes to be vaccinated on Sept. 27 and more recently expanded the requirement to include workers at assisted living homes, hospice care, treatment centers and home health aides. ‘My responsibility as Governor is to protect the people of this state, and requiring health care workers to get vaccinated accomplishes that,’ Hochul said in a statement. ‘I stand behind this mandate, and I will fight this decision in court to keep New Yorkers safe.'”
Texas Governor Bans COVID “Vaccine” Mandates
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott bans any COVID-19 vaccine mandates — including for private employers
“Abbott also called on the Legislature to pass a law expanding the ban on vaccine mandates.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday issued another executive order cracking down on COVID-19 vaccine mandates — this time banning any entity in Texas, including private businesses, from requiring vaccinations for employees or customers.
Abbott also called on the Legislature to pass a law with the same effect, promising to rescind the executive order once that happened. The Legislature is in this year’s third special legislative session, which ends Oct. 19. ‘The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, & our best defense against the virus, but should always remain voluntary & never forced,’ he said in a tweet announcing his latest order….
The latest move appears to be at least partly motivated by President Joe Biden’s actions in September that require all employers with more than 100 workers to mandate vaccines for workers or test weekly for the virus. ‘In yet another instance of federal government overreach, the Biden Administration is now bullying many private entities into imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, causing workforce disruptions that threaten Texas’s continued recovery from the COVID-19 disaster,’ Abbott said in his order.”
No Vax Mandate Job Boards
“Job boards for sharing open roles at companies that do not require employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 have been popping up online as vaccine mandates are becoming more common.
One board is hosted on Gab, the social media platform that has been embraced by some conservatives and members of the far-right. In an email sent to users on Wednesday, Gab CEO Andrew Torba announced the ‘No Vax Mandate Job Board.’
‘This job board is for sharing job openings that do not require employees to inject themselves with an experimental substance or violate their bodily autonomy and religious beliefs in order to retain employment,’ he wrote, adding that job seekers are welcome to post their resumes in the group.
The group, which had nearly 30,000 members after just two days, was filled with messages from people looking for work that won’t require them to be vaccinated….
Another site marketing itself to job seekers who are looking to avoid vaccine mandates, NoVaxMandate.org, says it believes ‘no right is more sacred than the right of every individual to the control of their own person, free from all restraint or interference of others.’
The openings listed on the site range from a Pizza Hut delivery driver in Texas to a Hairstylist at a ‘patriot run small business’ in Arizona. There are multiple openings for nurses at rural nursing homes in Wisconsin and Minnesota, with listings that read: ‘No Jab required. We are awake and serve God.’
A third site, RedBalloon, touts itself as ‘the nation’s first and only free speech job site.’ It said it would be ‘taking a stand against forced vaccinations,’ announcing in a blog post it would be ‘ramping up’ its operations to connect employers who are looking for employees ‘regardless of their vaccination status.’
The Red Balloon site clearly states:
We connect employers who value freedom with employees who value it too. We envision a world beyond cancel culture, where employees are free to work… without fear that they will find themselves on the wrong side of their employer’s politics.
That’s it. No agendas, politics, or drama. Just work. Interested? Let’s create that world together.

Southwest Airlines Backs Down
October 12, 2021
The CEO of Southwest Airlines is fighting back against Joe Biden, his administration and their vaccine mandates. The CEO, Gary Kelly, spoke to George Stephanopoulos on ABC News on Tuesday when he said no one was going to be fired for not being vaccinated. “We are not going to fire any employees over this,” he said. He did say that there was “no evidence” that the recent flight cancellations had anything to do with the vaccine mandates.
He did say that there was “no evidence” that the recent flight cancellations had anything to do with the vaccine mandates “There’s just no evidence of that,” he said. “Our people are working very hard, they’re doing a great job, I’m very proud of them.” “This is a government mandate, it’s a presidential order, and we’re doing our best to comply with that according to the deadlines that have been set,” the CEO said, but he did say that the mandate was “very controversial.”
“I’ve never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate, I’m not in favor of that, never have been,” he said on CNBC. “But the executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees and then all federal contractors, which covers all major airlines, have to have a vaccine mandate in place by December 8. So we’re working through that.”
“I think people, again, that understand how airlines work, when you get behind, it just takes several days to catch up,” he said. “The fact that we’re basically caught up yesterday and today supports the assertion that we’re making here. We were significantly behind on Friday, and it just takes several days to catch up.”
But this is a new stance for Kelly as last week he said that his employees would have to be vaccinated, MSN reported. “Southwest Airlines is a federal contractor and we have no viable choice but to comply with the U.S. government mandate for employees to be vaccinated, and — like other airlines — we’re taking steps to comply,” he said.
The airline had to cancel more than 1,000 flights this weekend, but the CEO said it did not have to do with the vaccine mandate or any type of protest. “WAPA is aware of operational difficulties affecting Southwest Airlines today due to a number of issues, but we can say with confidence that our Pilots are not participating in any official or unofficial job actions,” the company said.
“Our Pilots will continue to overcome SWA management’s poor planning, as well as any external operational challenges, and remain the most productive Pilots in the world. They will continue to be focused on their highest priority — safety. SWAPA Pilots are true professionals and will always maintain the highest level of responsibility to their crews, their passengers, and our airline,” he said.
But, as Bloomberg News reported, Southwest pilots have asked the courts to block the vaccine mandates. The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association’s filing Friday also asked for an immediate hearing on the request before a federal court in Dallas, claiming the carrier has continued to take unilateral actions that violate terms of the Railway Labor Act, which governs airline-union relations. Those steps include the Covid-19 vaccination requirement.
“The new vaccine mandate unlawfully imposes new conditions of employment and the new policy threatens termination of any pilot not fully vaccinated by December 8, 2021,” the legal filing said. “Southwest Airlines’ additional new and unilateral modification of the parties’ collective bargaining agreement is in clear violation of the RLA.”
Southwest set the deadline on Oct. 4 under a federal vaccination mandate for employees of companies holding contracts with the U.S. government. Workers can seek medical or religious exemptions. The union represents 9,000 Southwest pilots. “The airline disagrees with SWAPA’s claims that any Covid-related changes over the past several months require negotiation,” Southwest said in an emailed statement. The carrier is committed to working with its unions “as we continue navigating the challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic.”
Victory Boyd Stands Strong
Grammy Award winning singer Victory Boyd opened the RFK Jr. Rally For Freedom on Broadway in Manhattan on October 16 with her beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.
“Boyd was set to sing the anthem at the NFL’s opening season game on September 9th. But emails sent to Boyd’s father and manager, John Boyd, made it clear that the gig was canceled because of the singer’s refusal to vaccinate.”
In the video below, Del Bigtree, host of The Highwire, cited Boyd’s courage. Victory Boyd – The Star-Spangled Banner (intro by Del Bigtree).
“When asked why Boyd did not get the vaccine, the singer specifically mentioned her faith as the reason. “I am in prayer to make sure that the Lord guides me into the right decision concerning receiving an unproven injection with artificial properties that can potentially have a long-term effect on my reproductive health. If I want to take the vaccine, the decision will be between myself, my doctor, and my God. At this point, the Spirit of God is leading me to take a stand for freedom of choice.””
Robert Kennedy’s New Book Exposing Fauci
“Pharma-funded mainstream media has convinced millions of Americans that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a hero. He is anything but. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research, allowing him to dictate the subject, content, and outcome of scientific health research across the globe. Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals, and thousands of influential doctors and scientists—whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance, or reward.
During more than a year of painstaking and meticulous research, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unearthed a shocking story that obliterates media spin on Dr. Fauci . . . and that will alarm every American—Democrat or Republican—who cares about democracy, our Constitution, and the future of our children’s health.
The Real Anthony Fauci reveals how “America’s Doctor” launched his career during the early AIDS crisis by partnering with pharmaceutical companies to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS. Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS. Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies.
In early 2000, Fauci shook hands with Bill Gates in the library of Gates’ $147 million Seattle mansion, cementing a partnership that would aim to control an increasingly profitable $60 billion global vaccine enterprise with unlimited growth potential. Through funding leverage and carefully cultivated personal relationships with heads of state and leading media and social media institutions, the Pharma-Fauci-Gates alliance exercises dominion over global health policy.
The Real Anthony Fauci details how Fauci, Gates, and their cohorts use their control of media outlets, scientific journals, key government and quasi-governmental agencies, global intelligence agencies, and influential scientists and physicians to flood the public with fearful propaganda about COVID-19 virulence and pathogenesis, and to muzzle debate and ruthlessly censor dissent.”
PLANDEMIC DOCUMENTARY: THE HIDDEN AGENDA BEHIND COVID-19 was seen over 1 billion times since its release last year! PLANDEMIC 2 | INDOCTORNATION has been seen more than 200 million times. They are both free online.
Plandemic: Fear Is the Virus, Truth Is the Cure is being released on Amazon October 19.
“The incredible true story of the most banned documentary in history.
Researching the controversy arising after the release of the viral phenomenon known as Plandemic, the most seen and censored documentary in history, an investigative journalist sets out to disprove and debunk claims made throughout the film. Instead, the journalist opens a Pandora’s box to witness firsthand an underworld of corruption, lies, and the darkest of unsolved mysteries.
The result? A fascinating behind-the-scenes account about the making of Plandemic and Plandemic: Indoctornation; an exposé of the truth behind the origins of COVID-19; an alarming examination of individuals, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates, and organizations like the CDC, NIH, WHO, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among others, driving the global vaccination agenda; and a look at the tech giant and mainstream media forces doing their utmost to silence and suppress the veracity of these findings.
Investigative filmmaker Mikki Willis focuses his unflinching lens on two key subjects: virologist Dr. Judy Mikovits, who speaks frankly about the machinations for control and profit corrupting individuals and institutions tasked with overseeing public health; and Dr. David E. Martin, whose research and shocking data corroborate allegations of conflicts of interest.
The US media and fact checkers condemned the two documentaries as “dangerous conspiracy theory.” Today, the two-part bombshell is being hailed globally for warning the world of the crimes against humanity that are just now being uncovered. From the death of his brother and mother due to bad medicine, to his awakening at Ground Zero on 9/11, Mikki Willis describes in detail the incredible life experiences that led him to risk his career and safety to create the Plandemic series.”
