Florida and Texas Governors Sign Executive Orders Banning Vaccine Passports
On Apr. 2, 2021, Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order “prohibiting the use of so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports.” Gov. DeSantis said that Florida legislature is “working on making permanent these protections for Floridians” and that he looks forward to “signing them into law soon.”1 2 3
The DeSantis order also bars a state government agency from issuing vaccine passports to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.1 2 3 The Executive Order states, “Individual COVID-19 vaccination records are private health information and should not be shared by a mandate.” Gov. DeSantis said, “It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.”2
Governor Greg Abbott of Texas followed suit on Apr. 6 signing an executive order prohibiting state agencies and businesses from issuing or requiring vaccine passports. “We will continue to vaccinate more Texans and protect public health, and we will do so without treading on Texans’ personal freedoms,” Gov. Abbott said, adding:4
[A]s I have said all along, these vaccines are always voluntary and never forced,” Abbott said. “Government should not require any Texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives.5
Governments in other states, including Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina, have also indicated opposition to vaccine passports.6 7 8 9 10
Georgia and Mississippi Governors Do Not Support Vaccine Passports
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp said on Apr. 6, “I do not and will not support any kind of state-mandated vaccine passport. While the development of multiple safe, highly effective COVID-19 vaccines has been a scientific miracle, the decision to receive the vaccine should be left up to each individual.”6
Mississippi’s Governor Tate Reeves is also not a fan of vaccine passports. On Apr. 4, he said, “I don’t think it’s necessary and I don’t think it’s a good thing to do in America.” He added that, “at some point we have to let Americans make the decision that they think is best for them and their family.”7 8
South Carolina Lawmakers Urge Governor to Ban Vaccine Passports
In South Carolina, the state legislators sent a letter to Governor Henry McMaster on Apr. 2 urging him to ban vaccine passports.9 10 The lawmakers wrote:
The use of ‘vaccine passports’ to restrict commerce is a threat to both personal liberty and medical privacy. We are committed to fighting this violation at the federal level, and we urge you to do the same by working with Attorney General [Alan] Wilson at the state level.9 10
White House Statement Discounts Federally Required Vaccine Passports
During a press conference on Apr. 7, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that the federal government will not issue vaccine passports but the Biden administration will be working with companies, which are independently developing vaccine passports requiring individuals to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, to address privacy protection issues. “The government is not now, nor will we be, supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential,” Psaki said. “There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential.”11
She added, “Our interest is very simple from the federal government, which is American’s privacy and rights should be protected so that these systems are not used against people unfairly.”12
On Apr. 5, 2021, Newsweek reported that Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and chief medical advisor to the Biden administration, thinks it’s likely some businesses will require customers to show proof of vaccination before entering a space occupied by other customers or employees.13
There may be theaters that say, ‘You don’t get in unless you have proof of vaccination.’ There may be colleges or other educational institutions that do that. I’m not saying they should or that they would—I’m saying you could see how an independent entity might say, ‘Well, we can’t be dealing with you unless you’re vaccinated, but it’s not going to be mandated from the federal government.13

Fascism plain and simple- shell game between gov. and companies to avoid accountability.
Evil and illegitimate regime in power. Evil tyrannical companies. Supreme court also now illegitimate.
The ‘supremes’ have been illegitimate since at least the day they ‘ruled’ pharma was immune from lawsuits for their killer products. In actuality, the ‘supremes’ were illegitimate long before then since nearly every ruling is unconstitutional.
How can any gene therapy passport be valid when there is absolutely no proof that these potions will protect anyone from any disease? That has not been established and won’t be for another 3-5 years, at least, if ever at all. The control groups are being destroyed as they are getting injections. How can you have a valid long term trial without valid control groups? In any real, scientific, non-corrupt setting, you simply can’t.
Furthermore, there are now thousands of cases of CoV-2 being reported after these pretend vaccinations. Explain that? Or, is it quite possibly the PCr testing still being used as the main testing method continues to be totally flawed and over 80% inaccurate? Truth, please.
So here we go again with no absolute results, statistics or proven scientific methods being used to determine the truth. That is why the truth reported in the media is all propaganda and lies…all of it…every last shred.
Yeah, but these things are being delivered at something around $200 a pop, paid for courtesy of the taxpayers. So ‘free’ at the point of use.
Covid vaccines are a cash cow. That is the driving force behind this. You can give up on the logical arguments, these powerful multinational corporations have a thousand ways and sideways to spin all possible arguments against consumption of their billion dollar products.
The reason people can’t get their mind around it, is the scale of the fraud, the amount of damage already caused. The betrayal of trust which would force them to deflate their egos and admit defeat, or force them to rise up and fight. People are so tied up with status quo, it truly is like the Matrix. Day to day lives and do nothing to stand out. The truth is much more frightening, these are criminal organizations operating in plain view with no accountability. They are so intertwined into the educational system and research and funding, have their own buildings, they’ve taken over other institutions, big pharma is a powerhouse which runs on it’s own momentum now, no specific leader is necessary. Anyone whom figures out how destructive this pharma product freight train is, can only protect themselves by jumping off themselves. The propaganda is so well ingrained, most people find themselves unwilling to even admit their could be a problem. It’s simply not true, how could they have been lied to their whole lives? It’s a difficult subject to get through to people on. Hey, take the risk if you want to, I’m not taking it. That’s why the activists boil it down to something repetitive and simple, to counter the propaganda, know the risk, vaccine reaction, leaning on verifiable stats even if small.
Like there was this covid vaccine reaction event where 3 out of 300 people died. Yet there was a line of people whom wanted it, alongside the protestors. 1% chance of dying or some other severe reaction? Would you even step out the front door if that was a normal risk? Skydivers take less risk.
Absolutely. I really enjoyed your comment. Refreshing truth. And there ate many other very awake well spoken people here too. So appreciated. Sigh.
Amen. Read The Rise of Tyranny and see just how much money the pharmaceutical industry pulls in annually–more than the defense industry. This Covid gold rush has destroyed over 100,000 small businesses while enriching a few massive corporations (and their CEOs). It has ruined many more lives than the false Covid case numbers. We are subjected to endless media propaganda from the likes of TV star Fauci repeating the “safe and effective” mantra to the point that people don’t even believe it when they see with their own eyes, their relatives getting sick or dying from the injections. The Nazi Hermann Goring stated during the Nuremberg trials that “Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country.”
Just substitute “pacifist” for those who chose not to take this injection.
I so agree with you, sir.
You are absolutely right. Such a pity so many people don’t see that
Very eloquent & true!
Well said! I like your analogy of skydivers taking less risk! Yes they do and they check and fold their own parachutes to make sure of the outcome they want, a safe flight down with a fully deployed parachute. There are NO safe vaccine ‘flights’ right now and we are only seeing the beginning of what is vaccination outcomes, crash and smash landings. How my heart hurts.
Even IF it were proven that pharma sold products that “protect anyone from any disease”. So what? WHO gave anyone the authority to violate a human being’s bodily integrity for ANY REASON? The government has NO SUCH AUTHORITY and certainly pharma does not either.
give me the simple real facts
Yep, the federal government (Biden admin) wants vaccine passports as they say it covertly, however, they do not want to appear as the evil villain’s that they are. So let us coerce large corporations (IBM) to carry out the dirty business! What ever happened to the days when the federal government, by charter, would protect American citizens! My guess is days long gone, especially with this administration. I think it is time we all fight back against this type of tyrannical control and it starts with alliances such as the NVIC. In the past, I have been guilty of complacency, but not this time! You can bet your sweet ass that I am not going to sit this one out!
Spoken like a true American!!!
I am with you 100% Tommy! I’m 74 years old and have been sounding the alarm for many years. The Globalists have been infiltrating from within for decades and have taken control of every system in our society! The famous JAB has nothing to do with our health and everything to do with money, and depopulation……for easier control!!!
You’re right, Tommy, NONE of us can SIT THIS ONE OUT……LAST CHANCE!!!???❌?☠️❤️❤️❤️?????????
Screwed in Colorado. Home of systemic vote fraud, the original mail in ballot state where registered voters have outnumbered the number of citizens whom vote, for decades with absolutely inadequate roll cleaning. Now with the richest politician in our state forcing masks, alongside his first husband. You’re going to love the increased taxation which rides alongside public funding for every liberal cause forthcoming. Come to CO and pay ten times what the real estate is really valued at, as big city people nationwide flood to our suburbs and drive prices up to unsustainable levels hundreds and hundreds of thousands more in only a few years time. Colorful Colorado, the preferred sanctuary state. You’ll love our new doxing the non vaccinated students and parents legislation which did pass, and you’ll learn a lot in our new pharma funded state mandated re education program for vaccine resistors! State people will now be visiting your home if you send your children to school and utilize opt outs for vaccination, to help educate you on your own personal need to comply, as well as sharing your name publicly.
We are lining up an emergency exit plan because it’s not looking good for personal rights here. Colorado, shaped up to be the disappointment of a lifetime. High tax corporate plazas as far as the eye can see, incredible pressure on traditional small businesses folding left and right, so few left. All new construction is high density, less land, communal mailboxes. If you’re a fall in line status quo lemming from the big city who’s never even stood on a real piece of dirt, you’ll love your new micro sized rear yard and water use restrictions. Your property tax rate is actually twice what you think it will be, through municipal hoa imposition which is mandatory for all new development. Legalized pot with mile high 20%+ taxes and appealing mandatory liberal cause activism donations made by the companies every single time you buy! Our new 33% tobacco tax cost increase helps fund the tens if not hundreds of thousands of homeless and indigent people in the city, as they make really interesting tent cities around highway junctions. Professional beggars on every corner with signs so there is always someone you can feel good about helping. Red flag laws and retroactive NICS checks which includes juvenile records. Our secretary of agriculture in charge of cattle ranchers, an adamant anti meat vegetarian whom is driving up the price of beef. Sky high energy costs under a energy company regulated monopoly. Mandatory smart meters for everyone with no opt outs. Gas and electric have tripled and quadrupled as we now have mandatory wind energy contributions by legislative mandate. All of this happened in the past 10 years. A miserable life at altitude with never ending winters if you dare to get out of the cities. What’s not to love about Colorado?
Agreed! Colorado has been sliding faster than an inexperienced skier on a diamond black. We arrived when it was still a nice place to live, but after two decades of uncontrolled growth and a blue tsunami, hope to exit soon. But where to go?! The whole country is already going over the precipice and it’s not looking good, is it? Enjoyed the details you provided here, much of which I did not even know! And I do still love the summers, even if they only last about eight weeks.
Fort Lewis College in Durango requiring the EUA. Personal rights and the medicaid system is a nightmare if you have a disabled loved one. The state doesn’t seem to give a damn about the disabled nor the protection from disability should you become disabled from many different situations. This whole entire situation is a crisis. Iowa is also on the list with the others who are banning the passports and Iowa went further to say it will prosecute if anyone is doing it. That is what we need Criminal Charges
This was good! Same reason we are about to leave IL. Sad, because my husband and I both grew up here and we are moving our kids but its just a sinking ship. And now the police can’t even do their jobs to protect us. Such a shame.
Someone I’m related to lives there and loves Colorado, but they are also INSANE. They also have a HUMONGOUS MORTGAGE on a POSTAGE STAMP-SIZED PROPERTY (they don’t even have a side walk!), yet they live in “the country” outside of Boulder, but with no property and a tiny yard. Of course they love socialism and are totally brainwashed by the globalist propaganda and have no ability for critical thinking. But they love their enslavement!
Fauci and Gates both should be in Prison !!
Prison is too good for them. Besides, why should tax payers fund their existence? Haven’t they stolen enough from us?
I visualize Fauci in cuffs doing a perp walk, daily.
There’s a great article on Mercola .com
That explains how DEEP gates is in the WHO. It’s alarming!!!!
WHO DIED AND MADE FAUCI GOD? Why are these agenda driven sociopaths (him and bILL Gates) trying to make national policy?
We need to all stand up against vaccine passports. No one should have the right to know anything about your medical history except those people we want to share it with…KEEP US FREE!
So sad. So sorry? Pray for our country✝✝✝
Well it’s clear by Jen’s remarks that Biden will attempt to circumvent the Passport by getting the private sector to initiate one.
That’s a pretty bad gamble, hopefully ANY business stupid enough to do that will go OUT of business, and fast. Boycotting is always a good idea.
Like if I ever actually drank the swill called Coca Cola and its many different product lines, I’d boycott them.
I think we need to take Jen at her word:
According to an April 6th article on Fox News, “Psaki went on to say that ‘there will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential.’ ”
I heard that and interpreted it as, “we won’t require a SINGLE one, but we may require you to have one of several options.”
no to vaccine passports!
So sorrry Fauci and Gates we do not live in a authoritarian state. You can hope for private companies to issue BS passports but when they start to loose $ it will not last very long…
It isn’t about the money. They’ve got all the money in the world. It’s about control. And these transnational corporations ALL funnel up to a handful of intel agencies and global banking interests. Don’t be fooled. They’re not independent companies.
EXACTLY my thought! They will lose so much money when many of us boycott/ignore their businesses. They will drop the passport bs quickly, unless the govt subsidizes them with our taxes!! Anything is possible and not surprising after this past year.
Two states are showing respect to individual rights. Three states are a ‘work in progress’. For organisations imposing restrictions to vaccinated only person’s, I understand what they are attempting to do. Their intentions would be in the right place if they also recognised those with existing immunity status through exposure. This group has been unfairly marginalised. Without this inclusion they present an unfair proposition.
Where the passport notion fails is that immunity exists without vaccination. Whether or not this immunity can be proven is a limitation. At any given time the strength of the immediate immune response to a threat looking for a host to invade will be as effective as the resources available to the immune system to draw upon.
The underlying weakness in all of this are immune systems that are poorly resourced by each and every one of the 39 specific nutrients classed as *essential* for proper functionality. Proper functionality can only occur when levels of these nutrients meet the requirements of the individual.
People require more of these essentials at higher levels of physical exertion, more during recovery phases. This is simply supply meeting demand. When supply fails to meet demand the immune system can’t be ‘expected’ to perform at 100% capacity. It is under resourced.
As regards the vaccines, there is the opportunity to improve ingredients and safety using the CytoSolve Molecular Analysis process. When the recipe is right then people can place their confidence in these products. Until the recipe becomes *biogenic* for the recipient, it causes unnecessary harm. This harm can be eliminated through modification. Any modified product given the CytoSolve tick of approval is indeed fit for the purpose stated.
The entire purpose of the CytoSolve assessment and design process is to eliminate risk to create biogenic products in a fast manner that sets aside the need to test animals or human beings.
I always thought that this was gene therapy. Vaccines are supposed to protect from virus/infection. This doesn’t. All it does is cover/reduce the severity of symptoms if contracted. My favorite one is, ‘ When we had chicken pox, measles, mumps in the past, natural immunity was enough for protection. Now, according to Fauci, herd immunity can only be there if you get vaccinated. Why was natural immunity enough back
then, but does not work/not worthy of consideration now?
I do agree the Fauci and Gates should be in jail. Everything I read about this points to the fact that they both have a lot to gain moneywise, if this world is totalitarian/authoritarian.
They talk from both sides of the mouth. They say that it’s the non-vaccinated that are creating the variants(a method of turning people against others). Yet, if you still becoming infected after the injection, you are also still harboring virus which can become a variant. There is no such thing as vaccine-created herd immunity. They know it. It’s a lie. It’s why entire classrooms of vaccine compliant children still come down with measles. This injection prevents neither infection or transmission so why take it? Fauci has never treated a single patient since leaving his residency. He became a gov’t bureaucrat chasing bigger paydays since the day he graduated medical school.
When chicken pox vaccines were new I asked our pediatrician if my youngest child needed one. The two older boys had both had it so they were covered. The youngest was only a few weeks old when his brother came home with spots. Sure enough, the baby was exposed and had a total of one, maybe two spots. I was worried that this wasn’t enough to convey immunity. But the wise old doctor assured me that if he had so much as one spot, he was now immune. … and he’s never come down with chicken pox in his 35 years.
If that was true for that virus then why isn’t it also true for this corona virus?
The problem is the “New World Order” they have wanted for so long is finally happening. Most people are apathetic and will not fight for their rights. One day they are doing to wake up, and they will be living in a communist country. This evil is spreading everywhere!
Don’t forget Idaho! https://gov.idaho.gov/pressrelease/gov-little-bans-vaccine-passports-in-idaho/
Fascism has come for America
The government will not require vaccine passports – they will then instead be required by businesses. This way the government can say they didn’t do it – that the businesses did it, not them, therefore looking like the government had nothing to do with it. Yeah right!
What is happening right now a year ago was considered to be conspiracy theory. I am terrified that we have been imposed “health measures” that have nothing healthy in it and we have obeyed and complied. They are moving forward with their planned agenda and we are continuing to be passive. We are the dog on the leash that barks at the free dog and not its owner. We are losing our humanity and our joy to live. At least I am. We are afraid of dying (as we have been bombarded by the corrupted media to believe) so we have stopped living. Everyone is guilty of this, big pharma, our government, our governors, the technocrats, the media, Soros, Gates, Fauci, the WHO and so many more. This is genocide on a global scale. It is dehumanization of our race. It is called the great reset, according to the 1% of the world’s richest people.
Try to not watch so much news. I think they are intentionally trying to make it depressing to get more people to believe they are powerless and won’t resist their evil plans. Don’t fall for their psychological operation. Resist however you can. I know it can be a downer to see so many brainwashed sheeple out there, but not all of them are all for this destruction of freedoms. Pray for guidance on this.
The reason for this mask wearing is because they don’t want protests. They’re censoring like crazy, but they are not getting everyone to believe their lies. More people are finding ways around their dictatorial mandates.
The news doesn’t report people doing ‘ flash mobs’ like the one in *Utah, people going to stores with these silly face diaper rules (sans diapers) and just SHOPPING. *seen on corbettreport.com. Wow, what a bunch of rebels, shopping without masks, huh? And people still think we live in a free country? Not with these silly mandates we don’t!
Yeaaaah, Texas!!!!! I’m so proud of you for banning these idiotic vaccine passports
WE NEED TO PRESS OUR REPRESENTATIVES TO GET ON BOARD NOW. IN CALIFORNIA, IF WE DON’T SLAM THE DOOR ON PASSPORTS WE’RE GOING TO LOSE EVEN MORE RESIDENTS TO TEXAS AND MORE THAN WE HAVE ALREADY. NOBODY WILL LIVE IN CALIFORNIA WITH NEWSOME DICTATING PASSPORTS.
EVERY STATE NEEDS TO ISSUE EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND SLAM THE DOOR TIGHTLY.
Glad to see the open minded here. Colorado was such a beautiful place. Mr and Mr Governor!
The entire USA pendulum will swing the other way and itll be the wild west again.
We have legislation coming out soon in Wisconsin. Contact your representative and Senator now! – https://www.vaccinechoicewi.org/lrb-2140-lrb-2956/
Each state can and should PASS any law it wishes to pass as a reflection of the wishes of the residents of that state. STATE’S RIGHTS trumps the federal gov’t. That’s the 10th amendment. The federal gov’t cannot override states’ rights but they do it all the time because they’ve been allowed to get away with it since at least the ‘un’civil war. Now, if you live in a state whose laws you don’t like you should be able to leave and move to a different state….of course, we’ll see how long that lasts under this corporate fascistic banker dictatorship. Now, the fact that the South Carolina “lawmakers” throw it into the governor’s lap to “ban” stupid-19 passports is a PERFECT indicator of how the state legislatures are a bunch of pansies who are afraid to go up against the corporate fascists and actually write a law (by themselves) and pass it and send it up to the governor to sign. What a bunch of bought off, spineless scum.
Good posts. Any “law” against the will of the people, devoid of due process, and against the laws of the Biblical God, are invalid and should be disobeyed. Forced vaccinations and “passports” for them, violate all three of the above. Remember, the lefty fake federal gov’t lives by governing against the will of the people. How far away can brute force be?
Wellington is missing the point! It is an invasion of our privacy and a violation of HIPPA laws to ask us or inform others of any of our medical conditions and certainly a violation to our bodies to force or even try to coerce us to take a jab….PERIOD! I don’t care what they take into consideration as to whether or not the shot is effective or for how long, or if natural immunity exists, etc etc etc. Anyone who doesn’t have their head up their ass will understand that it’s all about the big pharma money especially considering there are other methods of less expensive treatments and of keeping our body healthy enough to withstand effects of any virus including Covid freaking 19.
WOW, Colorado!!!! I thought New Jersey was bad. Gotta get our crazy Gov (S)Murphy out of office!
I understand that there were only 50 adverse reactions (? Deaths) from the Swine flu vaccine before it was pulled from the market. Now, with this potpourri of spikes, lipid envelopes and, genetic fragments we have Thousands Dying in close proximity to DNA manipulations and, “just like that” it’s OK and, we should starting shooting up infants too!! How dumb must one be to get line the first time with No Evidence to support the “benefits” and near total denial of the risks? “Please, Sir, May I have some more”!!!
Has this great scam created any new billionaires in the Big Pharma Racket? You betcha! Last report I read listed 8 of them and millionaires beyond count. So, to know the Truth today, you just follow the money. They get it, you give it. Tell them to take their vaccine and STICK IT (where the sun don’t shine)!
