Four Republican Senators Vote Against Reinstating Military Members Over Vaccine Status – Mitt Romney, Mike Rounds, Bill Cassidy and Susan Collins

Displaying some of the most insufferable logic imaginable, four Republican senators voted against reinstating military members who were discharged for refusal to get vaccinated.

Apparently, according to the logic provided, Congress can select the location for the military to engage, select the weapons they can use, select their commanding officers who will lead their engagement, select the method, manner and purpose of their deployment…. yet, when it comes to requiring vaccinations, Congress must defer to military leadership.

Apparently, the concept of “civilian lead military oversight,” does not apply when it comes to forced COVID-19 vaccination.  Sorry, but these Republican senators are intellectually dishonest idiots.

(Via Daily Signal) –   Four Republican senators voted Thursday against reinstating military members who were discharged for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Mitt Romney of Utah, Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, and Susan Collins of Maine voted against Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson’s amendment that would have reinstated and provided backpay to military members discharged for refusing to get vaccinated.

Johnson sought to amend the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act, which passed the Senate, 83-11, Thursday night. Though this amendment failed, Republicans were able to include a provision in the NDAA that halts the Department of Defense from forcing service members to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“These were direct orders from commanding officers,” Cassidy said in a statement to The Daily Signal on the vaccine mandate. “I voted to end the COVID vaccine mandate in the military, but it is not Congress’s place to intervene in the chain of command and set a precedent for military personnel to ignore direct orders.” (read more)

Romney, Collins and even Cassidy are not necessarily a surprise.  However, Mike Rounds seems to have provided further evidence of his DeceptiCon bonafides with this vote.  You might remember CTH discussing something particularly sketchy surfacing in the federal politics of South Dakota.   Well, here comes Mike Rounds to put the proverbial cherry on that sketchy suspicion.  {GO DEEP}

[January 2022] – […] Senator John Thune, Senator Mike Rounds and Governor Kristi Noem all suddenly appear in the headlines and on television, and all positioning for political influence.

For such a small state, that is 100% owned by the Wall Street multinational agricultural industry, it’s a rather remarkable coincidence, no?
