Military service members with natural immunity file lawsuit against DOD, FDA, HHS over COVID vaccine mandate

Two active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces on Aug. 17 filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on behalf of themselves and 220,000 active service members who are being forced to get a COVID vaccine despite having had COVID and acquired natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2.

(Children’s Health Defense) – Two active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces on August 17 filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on behalf of themselves and 220,000 active service members who are being forced to get a COVID vaccine despite having had COVID and acquired natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2.

The lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit, Staff Sergeant Daniel Robert and Staff Sergeant Holli Mulvihill, allege U.S. Sec. of Defense Lloyd Austin ignored the DOD’s own regulations and created an entirely new definition of “full immunity” as being achievable only by vaccination.

According to the lawsuit, the military’s existing laws and regulations unequivocally provide the exemption the plaintiffs seek under Army Regulation 40-562 (“AR 40-562”), which provides documented survivors of an infection a presumptive medical exemption from vaccination because of the natural immunity acquired as a result of having survived the infection.

Under the military’s regulations (AR 40-562, ¶2-6a.(1)(b):

“General examples of medical exemptions include the following … Evidence of immunity based on serologic tests, documented infection or similar circumstances.”

According to the lawsuit, Dr. Admiral Bret Diroir, HHS assistant secretary, stated in an interview Aug. 24 with Fox News: “So natural immunity, it’s very important … There are still no data to suggest vaccine immunity is better than natural immunity. I think both are highly protective.”

Yet on the same day, Austin issued a memo mandating the entire Armed Forces be vaccinated, in which he wrote:

“Those with previous COVID-19 infection are not considered fully vaccinated.”

In that memo, plaintiffs allege Austin created a new term and concept, which contradicts  the plain language of DOD’s own regulations, long-standing immunology practice, medical ethics and the overwhelming weight of scientific evidence regarding this specific virus.

Plaintiffs claim Austin, who is not a doctor, changed the DOD’s own regulation without providing “a scintilla of evidence to support it.”

They also allege Austin made the regulation change without going through the required rulemaking process, in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act review.

According to the lawsuit, Pfizer’s phase 3 trials — designed to test long-term side effects — are not scheduled for completion until 2023, and that “inexplicably, in the middle of that phase 3 trial, the manufacturer un-blinded the two cohorts, and members of the placebo group were given the opportunity to take the vaccine if they wanted to.”

Plaintiffs claim the FDA allowed Pfizer to turn the study from a placebo-controlled, blinded trial into an open, observational study.

Robert and Mulvihill on Aug. 30 filed a motion for an emergency temporary restraining order against the mandate, asking the court to prevent the DOD from vaccinating them and others who can document they previously had COVID.

Plaintiffs claim if they’re not granted the relief they seek, they will suffer immediate physical harm by being forced to take a vaccine for a virus to which they already have immunity.

In their motion, they also said the mandate constitutes an unconsented physical invasion of the worst kind — with a novel mRNA technology that has not even been tested on people who have acquired natural immunity to the virus, and who have a clear and unequivocal right to the exemption they are seeking under the DOD’s own regulations.

Vaccines could cause physical harm for some

The lawsuit also alleges the COVID vaccines could cause potential harm to the body — including harm caused by the spike protein.

Plaintiffs said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Vaccine Adverse Events Reported System” (VAERS), which contains adverse event reports for all vaccines administered in the U.S. from July 1,1990, shows a significant increase in adverse events since the rollout of COVID vaccines.

According to the lawsuit, before the FDA introduced COVID Emergency Use Authorization vaccines in December 2020, VAERS had recorded a total of 5,039 deaths and 12,053 permanent disabilities for all prior vaccines. However, for the week beginning Aug.13, VAERS showed 13,068 reports of deaths and 1,031,100 reports of serious adverse events from COVID vaccines alone.

The plaintiffs said they have the right to be free from unwanted physical intrusion and involuntary inoculation against a virus that poses statistically zero threat to people with natural immunity, and to reserve their guaranteed, codified and fundamental rights of informed consent. They allege forcibly inoculating a class of people with natural immunity will provide no benefit and will cause significant and irreparable physical harm and/or death.

Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense president and general counsel, applauded the lead plaintiffs, Robert and Mulvihill, for standing up to the military’s mandate.

“They raise critical issues that courts must resolve — on medical exemptions for natural immunity, and whether the clinical trials serving as the basis for Pfizer’s licensure were sufficient,” Holland said.

Holland explained:

“The plaintiffs’ case is exceptionally strong, resting as it does on proven natural immunity. Not only do Army regulations provide presumptive exemption to such individuals, but science and common sense require exemption of such people, in the military and out. It is well-established that natural immunity to COVID-19 is far more robust than vaccine-induced immunity, and those with natural immunity are at greater risk of injury if they are vaccinated. It is unfortunate that such a relatively simple matter needs to go to federal court for resolution, but we are delighted that plaintiffs Robert and Mulvihill brought the case. We hope that the court decides in their favor based on firm legal principles.”

Holland said a vaccine mandate for all members of the U.S. military is an “issue of national security” and of supreme importance to all Americans. “These plaintiffs raise challenges that the military brass and the federal government must respond to in open court,” she said.

Vaccinating those with natural immunity to COVID not supported by science

As The Defender reported Aug. 30, natural immunity appears to confer longer lasting and stronger protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization from the Delta variant compared to Pfizer-BioNTech’s two-dose vaccine-induced immunity.

In the largest real-world observational study comparing natural immunity gained through previous SARS-CoV-2 infection to vaccine-induced immunity afforded by the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, people who recovered from COVID were much less likely than never-infected, vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms or be hospitalized.

The study, published as a preprint Aug. 25 on medRxiv, showed people who had never been infected with SARS-CoV-2 but were vaccinated in January and February were six to 13 times more likely to experience breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to unvaccinated people who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2.

Researchers noted increased risk was significant for asymptomatic disease as well.

“It’s a textbook example of how natural immunity is really better than vaccination,” Charlotte Thålin, a physician and immunology researcher at Danderyd Hospital and the Karolinska Institute, told Science.

A recent Israeli study affirmed the superiority of natural immunity. Health Ministry data on the wave of COVID outbreaks which began in May 2021, found a 6.72 times greater level of protection among those with natural immunity compared to those with vaccinated immunity.

In June, a Cleveland Clinic study found vaccinating people with natural immunity did not add to their level of protection.

The clinic studied 52,238 employees. Of those, 49,659 never had the virus and 2,579 had COVID and recovered. Of the 2,579 who previously were infected, 1,359 remained unvaccinated, compared with 22,777 who were vaccinated.

Not one of the 1,359 previously infected subjects who remained unvaccinated had a SARS-CoV-2 infection over the duration of the study.

As The Defender reported, a December 2020 study by Singapore researchers found neutralizing antibodies (one prong of the immune response) remained present in high concentrations for 17 years or more in individuals who recovered from the original SARS-CoV-2.

More recently, the World Health Organization and National Institutes of Health (NIH) each published evidence of durable immune responses to natural infection with SARS-CoV-2.

In March 2020, the NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci shared his view (in an email [p. 22] to Ezekiel Emanuel) that “their [sic] would be substantial immunity post infection.”

American Institute of Economic Research reported, it appears that in order to promote the COVID vaccine agenda, key organizations are not only “downplaying” natural immunity but may be seeking to “erase” it altogether.

Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and editor-in chief of MedPage Today, said mandating vaccines for “every living, walking American” is not well-supported by science.

In an interview with U.S. New & World Reports, Makary said there is no scientific support for requiring the vaccine in people who have natural immunity — that is, immunity from prior COVID infection. There is zero clinical outcome data to support arguing dogmatically that natural immune individuals “must get vaccinated.”

Makary explained:

“During every month of this pandemic, I’ve had debates with other public researchers about the effectiveness and durability of natural immunity. I’ve been told that natural immunity could fall off a cliff, rendering people susceptible to infection. But here we are now, over a year and a half into the clinical experience of observing patients who were infected, and natural immunity is effective and going strong. And that’s because with natural immunity, the body develops antibodies to the entire surface of the virus, not just a spike protein constructed from a vaccine.”

Makary said instead of talking about the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, we should be talking about the immune and non-immune.

Vaccinating people who previously had COVID could cause significant harm

Numerous scientists have warned vaccinating people who already had COVID could potentially cause harm, or even death.

According to Dr. Hooman Noorchasm, surgeon and patient safety advocate, it is scientifically established that once a person is naturally infected by a virus, antigens from that virus persist in the body for a long time after viral replication has stopped and clinical signs of infection have resolved.

When a vaccine reactivates an immune response in a recently infected person, the tissues harboring the persisting viral antigen are targeted, inflamed and damaged by the immune response, Noorchasm said.

“In the case of SARS-CoV-2, we know that the virus naturally infects the heart, the inner lining of blood vessels, the lungs and the brain,” explained Noorchasm. “So, these are likely to be some of the critical organs that will contain persistent viral antigens in the recently infected — and, following reactivation of the immune system by a vaccine, these tissues can be expected to be targeted and damaged.”

Colleen Kelley, associate professor of infectious diseases at Emory University School of Medicine and principal investigator for Moderna and Novavax phase 3 vaccine clinical trials, said, in an interview with Huffington Post, there had been reported cases in which those who previously had the virus endured harsher side effects after they received their vaccines.

Dr. Dara Udo, urgent and immediate care physician at Westchester Medical Group who received the COVID vaccine a year after having the disease, had a very strong immune response very similar to what she experienced while having COVID.

In an op-ed published by The Hill, Udo explained how infection from any organism, including COVID, activates several different arms of the immune system, some in more robust ways than others, and that this underlying activation due to infection or exposure, combined with a vaccination, could lead to overstimulation of the immune response.

In a public submission to the FDA, J. Patrick Whelan M.D. Ph.D., expressed similar concern that COVID vaccines aimed at creating immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein could have the potential to cause microvascular injury to the brain, heart, liver and kidneys in a way that does not currently appear to be assessed in safety trials of these potential drugs.

VIDEO Former Army Captain, Purple Heart Recipient Sean Parnell Rips Joint Chiefs Chair Gen. Mark Milley For Defending CRT – Coming to a School Near You? – National Children’s Museum promotes CRT, website crashed

Sean Parnell Rips Gen. Mark Milley

GREG PRICE CONTRIBUTOR June 25, 2021

Former Army Captain and Pennsylvania senate candidate Sean Parnell ripped into Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. Milley for his defense of teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the armed forces.

During a Friday segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the purple heart and two-time bronze star recipient said that the military’s promotion of CRT will “ultimately cost lives on the battlefield.”

WATCH:

“If you are looking for a way to destroy the United States military from the inside out without firing a shot, talk about what he’s talking about and implement Critical Race Theory,” Parnell began, “It makes it harder to accomplish the mission and ultimately I think it will cost lives on the battlefield.”

“I was blessed to lead an infantry platoon on the border on Afghanistan and Pakistan. We were probably the most diverse unit that you could possibly imagine. Northerners serving next to southerners, black next to white, Christians next to atheists next to Jews, rich next to poor, young versus old, and, yes, Democrats next to Republicans,” he continued.

“We didn’t focus on our many differences. There were no hyphenated Americans with us in Afghanistan and what we realized our secret weapon was is it wasn’t the sexy guns and equipment that we had. It was a love and brotherhood that we have for one another that allowed us to defeat the enemy at every single turn.”

“Critical Race Theory undermines all of that. It’s a disaster. When men and women raise their right hand to serve this country, they do so because they believe that America is an exceptional nation worth defending. critical race theory undermines that because it teaches people that America is fundamentally bad, it’s evil, its systems need to be reinvented because at their core, well they’re racist. That, Tucker, is a national security threat.”

Parnell went on to criticize Gen. Milley for being more focused on defending the military’s diversity policies than having a coherent exit strategy for Afghanistan. (RELATED: Tucker Torches Milley Over Focus On ‘White Rage’: ‘Have You Read Anything Recently About Winning Wars?’)

“What truly bothers me is the Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff should be focused on an exit strategy in Afghanistan. We’ve been in Afghanistan for twenty years, over half of my life, and instead, he is reading Lenin, Marx and studying Critical Race Theory. How about we get an exit strategy in Afghanistan. How about we focus on bringing men and women home and taking care of them when they come home?”

“If the chairman does not recognize the threat, the caustic nature of critical race theory and the threat it poses to our military, that I think he should consider resigning.”

After narrowly losing a congressional race in 2020 to Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb, Parnell recently declared his candidacy for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania.

VIDEO Space Force Commander’s Book Shoots to No. 1 After His Firing

Marxism In The Military Teaching Patriotism Is Evil

Lt. Colonel Matthew Lohmeier was relieved of his post Friday after discussing his new book on the Marxist infiltration of U.S. service academies.

By Debra Heine May 17, 2021 – updated May 23, 2021

A new book about the Marxist takeover of the military reached the top spot on Amazon’s bestseller list after the author, a former commander of a U.S. Space Force unit in Colorado, was fired for promoting it.

Lt. Colonel Matthew Lohmeier, commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, was relieved from his post after he appeared on a podcast to promote his book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military.

Irresistible Revolution is a timely and bold contribution from an active-duty Space Force lieutenant colonel who sees the impact of a neo-Marxist agenda at the ground level within our armed forces,” a description of the book reads.

Lohmeier, a former instructor and fighter pilot, was tasked with detecting ballistic missile launches.

He was fired on Friday for comments he made on national security expert L. Todd Wood’s podcast “Information Operation” earlier in the week, according to Military.com.

Lohmeier spoke about U.S. institutions, including universities, media and federal agencies including the military, that he said are increasingly adopting leftist practices. These practices—such as diversity and inclusion training and instruction in critical race theory—are the cause of the divisive climate across America today, he said.

From his perspective as a commander, Lohmeier said he didn’t seek to criticize any particular senior leader or publicly identify troops in his book. Rather, he said, he focused on the policies service members now have to adhere to to align with certain agendas “that are now affecting our culture.”

Referring to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who ordered a 60-day stand-down in February to give military leaders a chance to address “extremism” in the ranks, he said: “I don’t demonize the man, but I want to make it clear to both him and every service member this [diversity and inclusion] agenda, it will divide us, it will not unify us.”

As part of the stand-down, Lohmeier noted he was given a booklet that cited the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot as an example of extremism. But the material made no mention of rioting and destruction of property that took place following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last year.

Lohmeier also mentioned “the Pentagon spokesperson,” possibly in reference to Press Secretary John Kirby. Lohmeier claimed the spokesman said “there are too many white pilots,” amid an ever-increasing pilot shortage.

“If you want to provide that kind of messaging to your already-struggling pilot force, you can already expect to see further retention problems,” he said

Lohmeier told Wood he has received many positive messages from active-duty members following the book’s release.

“[They’re saying], ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you for speaking up—because we don’t have a voice anymore,” he said

After the podcast, Lt. General Stephen Whiting, the head of Space Operations Command, said there was “a loss of confidence” in Lohmeier’s “ability to lead,” according to Military.com.

“This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast,” a Space Force spokesperson told the outlet in an email. “Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a command-directed investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity.”

Several Republican congressmen spoke out against Lohmeier’s firing on social media over the weekend.

U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) vowed to take action on the firing in the Armed Services Committee.

Austin hired a Trump-hating critical race theory promoter to be the hatchet man in charge of purging “extremists”—commonly understood to be MAGA supporters—from U.S. military ranks.

Based on a number of his race-baiting tweets captured by Revolver, Bishop Garrison, senior advisor to the secretary of defense for diversity and inclusion, is the right man for the job.

Garrison tweeted in 2019 that only racists, misogynists, and extremists could support Donald Trump, the commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces at the time.

Revolver founder Darren Beattie appeared on “Fox and Friends” earlier this month to talk about Garrison’s dangerous radicalism.

Beattie quoted one of Garrison’s more disturbing outbursts about the need for incivility to counter “falsehoods and misinformation.”

“Calls for civility rather than shouting down falsehoods and misinformation shall be the death of this nation,” he reportedly said.

A member of the U.S. Air Force contacted American Greatness in mid-March to describe how he and several other MAGA-supporting jet mechanics had been directed to submit to “new” fingerprints. He said his Air Force supervisors told them that they had somehow “lost” all digital and hard copies of previous fingerprints, while also saying that they needed these new fingerprints for a security clearance background investigation (which none of them had sought).

“In other words, both of the official reasons for these new fingerprints are suspicious as hell and we all rolled our eyes and LOL’d,” the mechanic said in an email.

“None of us are terrorists or even overly political,” he added.

The mechanic said he had heard that the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security had been using an algorithm software and IT contractors to evaluate servicemembers’ internet browsing habits. The fact that his favorite websites included NewsmaxBreitbart, Fox News, and American Greatness, he said, made him a target of the cultural Marxists now in charge of the military.

“They are running a social credit score just like the Communist Chinese are,” he said.

After the Pentagon’s 60-day stand down to take stock of “extremism” ended, Defence Department officials issued a formal memo laying out its “Immediate Actions to Counter Extremism,” Revolver reported.

This memo announced the establishment of the Countering Extremism Working Group (“CEWG”) at the Pentagon to be led by none other than Bishop Garrison.

From the memo:

The [CEWG’s] immediate actions are as follows:

Review and Update of DODI 1325.06 Extremism Definition: Office of the Secretary of Defense (Personnel & Readiness) and the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) will review and update DODI 1325.06 to more specifically define what constitutes extremist behavior.
Updating the Service Member Transition Checklist: The military departments will add provisions to their service member transition checklists that include training on potential targeting of service members by extremist groups and work with other federal departments agencies to create a mechanism by which veterans have the opportunity to report any potential contact with an extremist group should they choose to do so.
Review and Standardization of Screening Questionnaires: All military departments to update and standardize screening questionnaires to solicit specific information about current or previous extremist behavior.
Commission of Extremism Study: The Department will commission a study on extremist behavior within our Total Force, to include gaining greater fidelity on the scope of the problem.
Led by Bishop Garrison, Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense on Human Capital and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the CEWG will oversee the implementation of immediate actions as well as the development of mid-term and long-term recommendations for the continued engagement of this issue. The CEWG will report through the Workforce Management Group (WMG) to the Deputy’s Workforce Council (DWC).

Lohmeier, according to Military.com, spent more than 14 years in the Air Force before transferring into space operations in October 2020.

He and other members of the Space Force were contacted by then-President Donald Trump the following month for the branch’s first Thanksgiving holiday.

Lohmeier told Military.com he had consulted with his chain of command, public affairs, and legal counsel about his plans to publish a book and its contents.

“I was apprised of the option to have my book reviewed at the Pentagon’s prepublication and security review prior to release, but was also informed that it was not required,” Lohmeier said in an email.

“My intent never has been to engage in partisan politics. I have written a book about a particular political ideology (Marxism) in the hope that our Defense Department might return to being politically non-partisan in the future as it has honorably done throughout history,” he said.

That does not seem to be on the horizon—at least as long as the left has control of the military.

The Air Force source told American Greatness that more and more conservative websites are being banned from web browsing on government computers.

“Yahoo, CNN, and MSN . . . will never be forbidden to access, but the new website “From The Desk Of Donald J. Trump” is, and has been since day one, off-limits,” he said. “A government browser or device cannot even go there or download its app. Period.”

VIDEO Only Two Things Protect America: The Grace of Almighty God and the US Military

May 24, 2019 By Charlie Daniels

Charlies Daniels in Iraq in 2016. (Charlie Daniels Band Photo)

In my youth, the holiday we celebrate this weekend was known as Decoration Day, which started in 1861 when a bouquet was placed on a Civil War veteran’s grave and continued as America paid homage and tribute to the men and women who paid the ultimate price in defense of America by “decorating” or placing flowers on the graves of fallen heroes.

The name was changed to Memorial Day and became a federal holiday in 1971.

America has lost over one million in our combined wars, and, by whatever name, it is appropriate and noble that we should set aside a day to honor their memory, their service and their sacrifice.

To be a true patriot, at least in my opinion, we must appreciate the terrible price our country and its people have paid to become the greatest nation the world has ever known, and we must acknowledge and honor all those who have served in our military and pay special tribute to the ones who gave their all.

We should never forget the warriors who lost their lives to win America’s independence, defeating what, at that time, was the mightiest army and navy on earth, the British. Outgunned, outmanned, barefoot and hungry, they fought on, buried where they fell – their graves unknown and their families never knowing what happened to them.

The Civil War was responsible for the deaths of over five hundred thousand men, many dying and buried in swamps and on mountains, and in deep woods and tiny villages without any markings to identify them.

For them and all the other heroes who have died in combat – their bodies lost in heat of battle – the president lays a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier symbolizing honor to all those who died and were lost in the fog of war.

I remember my mother taking me to church early on June 6, 1944, where the building was packed to the rafters with people who had come to pray for the troops, who at that moment were storming the beaches of Normandy, running into the artillery and machine gun fire that cut so many to ribbons.

Yet, on they came, wave after wave, until, at the end of D-Day, the Nazis back was broken, and the March to Berlin was on.

They called it “The Longest Day,” but it was also the bloodiest day, as there were an estimated 209,000 Allied casualties, including ground and air forces.

This weekend, we honor their memory.

The Vietnam War, the Gulf Wars, the War on Terror, skirmishes, the raids and rescues, and the covert missions we never even knew or know about have all cost the lives of brave men and women who were willing to stand between America and her enemies.

It’s frustrating these days when we have people who are obviously enemies of America and our ally, Israel, serving in the halls of power. It is also frustrating when elected officials put their personal feelings and the goals of their political parties ahead of the good of our nation.

Is that what so many brave men and women gave their lives for? So that while our nation faces so many dangers, so many dedicated enemies, so many domestic problems that a bunch of self-righteous empty suits insult their sacrifice by tearing apart the nation these brave men and women paid the ultimate price to defend?

Shame on you, Congress. Shame on you, Senate.

A million plus American citizens have given their all to give you the privilege of serving this great nation.

Only two things protect America, and it’s not the kindergarten classes on Capitol Hill. It’s not the idiot talking heads on TV who thought Michael Avenatti would make a good president. It’s not political correctness.

It’s the grace of Almighty God and the United States military are the two things that protect America. And the day we stop honoring either one is the day we’re going down.

To all the families, friends and brothers and sisters in arms who have lost a loved one in the service of this nation, from Hazel, Charlie, Jr. and me and all the folks at The CDB and Twin Pines Ranch, we salute you. We join you in honoring their memories on Memorial Day and the other 364 days of the year.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
