The Wall Street Journal reports on 8 December, on a survey taken after Pres. Biden’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate (scheduled to go into effect on 4 January and ordering private employers of 100 or more to require their employees to get vaxxed or submit to weekly testing) was temporarily blocked by legal challenges; see “BIDEN VAX MANDATE CONTESTED” (9 Nov 2021). The survey results showed Americans almost evenly split on their support of that mandate, with 50 percent in favor and 47 percent opposed.
Biden’s vaccine mandate for health care workers, also blocked by courts, had slightly more support, as did state and local vaccine mandates for police, firefighters and other public service workers, favored by 55 percent and opposed by 44 percent.
Vax mandates for children 12 and older had 51 percent support and 45 percent opposition, while vaccine mandates for children 5 to 11 yrs. old were split down the middle, 48 percent approving and 48 percent opposed.
It all goes to show the divisiveness that the COVID War has wrought, even now that some 68.3 percent of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated; see “VAX WARS” (30 Nov 2021).
TREND FORECAST: The United States (and much of the world) will continue to devolve into Vaxxed vs. Unvaxxed, and respecters of individual freedoms vs. those only too eager to support and accept government control of every aspect of their lives.
This division will continue to help fuel the worker shortage, especially in key fields like healthcare where workers decline the jab despite job loss; see “MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WOULD QUIT THEIR JOBS THAN TAKE THE JAB. WILL THEY BACK DOWN?” (14 Sep 2021).
And, considering the split among the population, we maintain our forecast for growing anti-vax, anti-tax, anti-immigration, anti-establishment movements that will challenge the two-party crime syndicate controlling Washington.
Meanwhile, governments and their media lackeys will continue to vilify those who dare to question, challenge or resist the official COVID narratives; see “VAX WAR: THE SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD” (23 Nov 2021). This will beget further resistance, which in turn may drive governments toward more desperate measures, including deliberately fanning international tensions; as Gerald Celente has repeatedly warned, “When all else fails, they take you to war.”
