President Donald Trump defied federal health officials for ordering some Americans to start wearing masks again indoors, even though they have been vaccinated.
“We won’t go back. We won’t mask our children,” Trump said in a statement released Tuesday after the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed their new mask and vaccination guidance.
The former president ridiculed President Joe Biden and his team for failing to learn the lessons of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 by returning to masking orders.
“Brave Americans learned how to safely and responsibly live and fight back,” he wrote. “Don’t surrender to COVID. Don’t go back!”
Trump accused Biden and federal health officials of failing to trust scientific evidence about the spread of the virus, particularly among children returning to school in the Fall.
The CDC also said Tuesday all children and school staff returning to school should be masked for in-person learning.
“Why do Democrats distrust the science?” Trump asked. “Don’t let this happen to our children or our Country.”
Biden specifically condemned unvaccinated Americans for allowing the coronavirus pandemic to continue, despite the widespread availability of vaccines.
“We have a pandemic because of the unvaccinated, and they’re sowing enormous confusion,” he said to reporters on Tuesday.
Vice President Kamala Harris told reporters mask mandates would continue as long as there were significant numbers of unvaccinated people in the United States.
“People need to get vaccinated. That’s the only way we’re going cut this thing off,” she said. “Nobody likes wearing a mask. Get vaccinated.”
HD Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?
Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, in his article written in response to the new CDC guidelines calling people to re-mask, stated:
“Why do people who have the vaccine need to now wear masks the same as people who have not had it?” That’s the question Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Psaki’s response was telling, “Because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination.” That response was not much different from a parent looking upon a questioning child with, “because I said so.” But there is one big difference, Americans aren’t children, we are rational adults with a responsibility to hold the government accountable. Why won’t the Biden administration give us a straight answer?
Apparently, because they don’t have one. Psaki’s response, continued saying that vaccinated people should wear masks “to make sure they’re protected.” If the vaccine provides immunity, it’s not unreasonable to ask what they think people are being protected from: Freedom? Republicans? Returning to normal life?
Perkins also condemned the Biden Administration for continuing to politicize vaccination and show ‘destain’ for those who are hesitant and ask questions:
President Biden and Vice President Harris have done little to depoliticize the vaccine; apologizing for their own disgraceful vaccine skepticism in 2020 would be a good start. Their administration has handled COVID regulations in an authoritarian manner, showing disdain for the unconvinced and those who raise reasonable objections.
Various Democrats have come out in recent days smearing the character of those who choose not to be vaccinated.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, on Monday, compared those who choose to be unvaccinated to those who “choose to drive drunk.”
“Look, we don’t even have to have that debate,” Newsom stated. “If we can just get everybody vaccinated that’s not vaccinated, that’s refusing to get vaccinated, that’s living vaccine free and impacting the rest of us — it’s like drunk drivers. You don’t have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk, including your own life at risk.”
Others have suggested that the way to convince the unvaccinated is through “threats.”
Joy Behar, stated: “The next step might be what we look at as threats. You will not be able to go to a restaurant unless you are vaccinated. You will not be able to go into a museum. You are not going to be able to go into the theater.”
Former Obama administration Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, suggested that people who don’t receive the vaccine should not be allowed to go to work or have access to places where there may be children. Adding that, freedoms have limits when others are placed at risk.
“I think that it’s time to say to those folks, it’s fine if you don’t choose to get vaccinated. You may not come to work,” she Sebelius. “You may not have access to a situation where you’re going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy. Where you might kill them, or you might put them in a situation where they’re going to carry the virus to someone in a high-risk position.”
“Freedom is one thing, but freedom, when you harm others, is like secondhand smoke,” she urged.
Chad Thomas, in his article published exclusively to Harbingers Daily, “Vaccine Passports & The Mark – Freedoms With Conditions”, explained:
The virus itself is very real, but the agenda behind the coronavirus is much bigger, and it is pushing us closer to a new world order and one world currency.
It is conditioning people to accept what’s coming following the Rapture of the Church during the Tribulation period. It is all about getting people to submit to Government authoritative rule. Causing people to become used to this is climatizing them for the Antichrist and the implementation of his mark, the “mark of the beast” (Revelation 13:16-18)
Now people debate about what the mark of the beast will be. I don’t claim to know that answer with 100 percent certainty. However, this is what I can tell you… the mask-wearing, vaccine ID cards, and vaccine passports are all part of the agenda to condition people to eventually accept this mark.
The bottom line is this. People want their lives back; they want their vacations back, concerts back, they want to go back to sporting events and they will comply with anything to regain those things.
And they will be able to, for the most part, get those freedoms back… but there will be conditions. Freedoms with Conditions.
That’s what this is all about, folks. Mask wearing will continue, and if you don’t want to obey Government regulations, there will be consequences. If you want your freedoms back, you better make sure you obey.
It will be the same thing on an even grander scale during the Tribulation period: Freedoms with conditions. You want to be able to buy or sell and go about your everyday life? Then you need to make sure you have the “mark of the Beast” in your right hand or in your forehead.
