California lawmakers wrap up their session of state government on Sept. 10. And California Governor Newsom faces a recall election on Sept. 14.
Lawmakers are trying to get AB455, the statewide vaccination mandate, passed into law before September 10. The draft bill is listed as an urgency measure, which would allow it to take effect immediately if passed by two-thirds of lawmakers and signed by the governor. There is a rally at the California State Capitol on September 8th at 10am.
The proverbial writing is on the wall. The California government is slowly making “being vaccinated” with the Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson COVID 19 vaccine, mandatory. People are being barred from working, if they are not vaccinated, in San Francisco already. People are being refused service, because of their vaccination status at bars and restaurants, etc, in San Francisco also; and people are also being murdered by hospital security staff, because of the medical choices that they want to make with their own body, in Berkeley.
Changes in how society operates, on a global level, are happening at warp speed with major corporations, local, state, and national government bodies making sweeping and drastic changes to accommodate, what some would call, the pharmaceutical agenda.
With the recent assumed murder of musician Steve “Zumbi” Gaines of the internationally known rap group Zion I, inside of Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley, two weeks ago by hospital security, eyebrows are starting to raise at how fast the legalized pharmaceutical apartheid state, is taking shape; especially after an early KQED article, which has since been edited stated Zumbi’s opposition to the vaccine, and his unvaccinated status, but failed to mention his ordeal with medical security staff, which Berkeley Police are calling a possible homicide.
“First of all I don’t believe the narrative that is painted about Zumbi. Because all of my interactions with him have been positive, and he is just one of the most peaceful, nicest people that I have met, in my life,” said legendary Vallejo rapper Mac Mall, who was on tour with Zumbi, Equipto, True Justice, San Quinn, a weeks ago.
“As far as the vaccine and Black people in general, we have a fucked up history with the government trying to force things on us, as well as Puerto Ricans, and Natives. You can only expect us to be skeptical.”
“I believe Zumbi was kidnapped, and murdered, because when he wanted to leave the hospital they should have let him leave,” alluding to the fact that Zumbi was handcuffed, while trying to leave the hospital that he freely admitted himself into, a few hours prior for problems breathing.
“We are going to keep fighting until the truth comes out. All of this heightened my awareness, because if this could happen to Zumbi, it can literally happen to any one of us,” concluded Mac Mall.
Zumbi is just one of the first military casualties that we, as Black society, have acknowledged in the local Bay Area dealing directly with this pandemic. His murder just crystallizes how far the state will go to push its agenda.
It has recently been broadcasted that anyone who wants to visit a hospital in California, will be required to show proof of full vaccination or a recent negative test.
In addition to that, in California, children over 12 years old can choose to be vaccinated at school, without parental consent.
California is now the first state in the nation to require all healthcare workers to be vaccinated, and all teachers and school employees to be vaccinated or submit to regular COVID 19 testing.
It is also now mandatory that, in San Francisco, all 30,000 plus city employees have to be vaccinated, in order to stay employed.
It has recently been reported that approximately 160 out of 700 Sheriff Deputies, in San Francisco, are saying that they will either go on early retirement, or seek employment somewhere else, rather than get the experimental vaccines.
San Francisco restaurants, bars, clubs, gyms, and large indoor events are now requiring proof of vaccination for patrons 12 and older. This requirement goes into effect on October 13th, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
“I am continuing to have discussions with health officials on what they think is best,” explained San Francisco Board of Supervisors President Shamann Walton in a one sentence statement, when posed with questions concerning the City’s Covid policies being against a human’s right to choose what they want put into their bodies, as well as international human rights in general.
“I don’t think there is a difference between requiring employees to be vaccinated versus requiring the general public to be vaccinated. I’m strongly urging vaccinations to participate in everyday social life, yes. Mandating it, no. But we should allow private businesses and nonprofits to mandate and require it, should they wish to do so, for their customers/ clients/ members,” said Oakland City Councilman Loren Taylor, weighing in on the fast moving developments in San Francisco and California.
Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, and Delta Airlines will not require their employees to be vaccinated, according to the Business Insider but Delta Airlines is requiring all employees to either get vaccinated or pay $200 more for health insurance. Delta operates the largest mass vaccination site in Georgia, having already administered 115,000 vaccine doses to state residents.
So far, Montana is the first and only state to ban the requirement of vaccination as a condition of employment, as it is deemed “discrimination”and a violation of the state’s human rights laws.
If AB455 is passed before the state legislature ends its session for the year, the California Department of Public Health would be tasked with determining by Nov. 1, how to enforce the requirements.
