Vax-only strategy not working, time for mask mandate, lawmakers say

By Guy Page

Vermont’s vaccination program isn’t enough to stop the pandemic, lawmakers and health care providers said at a press conference Monday evening. Their demand for a new state of emergency and universal mask mandate got the cold shoulder from Gov. Phil Scott on Tuesday.

“If I thought a state of emergency would be helpful, I would impose it,” Scott said at his weekly press conference.

Scott and his staff have not heard the public clamor for more restrictions, he said.

“People are getting more and more enthusiastic about the boosters,” he said. “Numbers are going down in Vermont and nationally. The state of emergency is something that shouldn’t be overused. There is a time and place for a state of emergency. I can assure you, this isn’t it. If I thought a state of emergency would be helpful, I would impose it.”

Rep. George Till, D-Jericho

Representative and nurse Mari Cordes, D-Lincoln, and Rep. Dr. George Till, D-Jericho, were asked by Vermont Daily Chronicle at Monday’s press conference, “VT has 89% vaccination and yet we’re the highest two week average in the nation. Gov. Scott wants to stay the course with the vaccine program. Is the state’s vaccine program not working?”

“I don’t think a vaccination-only program is working,” Cordes said.

Till added that claiming Vermont has an 89% vaccination rate is misleading because that number refers only to vaccine-eligible Vermonters. The ‘real’ number is probably in the 70’s, he said. “We need a vaccination program of overall 90% vaccination, including kids.”

Vermont’s recent two-week, first-in-the-nation number of new cases and the corresponding chaos in Vermont schools — with about 1,000 children already having lost classroom time due to mandated quarantine — should compel action, press conference organizers said.

Cordes, Till, Dartmouth public health expert Anne Sosin, and others said Scott should impose a universal mask mandate for all indoor workplaces and public places. The mandate would stop when transmission rates drop, she said.

“It doesn’t close/lockdown anything, it’s a way of preventing outbreaks in our workplaces and other settings,” Sosin said. “Mask policies give us time until we can vaccinate kids and boost high risk groups and reduce impacts we are seeing in health systems, schools, and businesses.  Vaccines still work well, but kids under 12 can’t get them yet (soon!).”

In defense of his administration’s reliance on vaccination, Scott said “this is still a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” He said 50,000 Vermonters are unvaccinated. Noting that both cases and hospitalizations are 3.8 times greater among the unvaccinated, “you can see that vaccination is working,” the governor said.

For the first time in three weeks, the rate of cases and hospitalizations grew faster among the unvaccinated than the vaccinated last week. Commissioner Levine had no information about October fatalities. He also said he is unaware of any fatalities among people who have received the boosters.

  1. Will an experimental injection expose the healthcare trap for what it is, maybe not, but it seems there is nothing organic about how we currently dispense healthcare today, because our options are increasingly limited and kept within the scope of a coalition of healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and government lobbied politicians & bureaucrats to control a particular narrative, which by the way can justify limiting choices presumably on your behalf for a preferred or desired outcome, but for whom dose this coalition really exist?

    Remember, a coalition of corporations and government bureaucracy has shown itself fully capable of turning a “common cold” (Un isolated virus) into a pandemic, and in doing so has perhaps exposed itself by showing its ability to introduce experimental treatments to the exclusion of therapies know to work, so, they are fully capable of discriminating against anyone who disagrees with their recommendations.

    This structured maze of institutions has trapped everyone forced to operate within its parameters, holding them hostage much like the company store did to those employed by the company many years ago.

    Those caught in the clutches of this trap are now seeing firsthand how ugly & deadly this immoral arrangement has become, yet after a year and a half, people in its employ as well as those cared for by the system are still afraid to challenge the pretense of its presumed authority, even when they suspect something is wrong.

    We still hear calls from a relentless campaign even now, telling us to do the right thing, get vaccinated, and even though we are constantly reminded of Vermont’s number one status for vaccine compliance, any celebration may be a bit premature as the full tally of the experimental protocol is yet to be recorded.
    Maybe we have to wait just a little longer, to identify who the Good, the Bad and the Ugly really are?

    The distraction of dividing us into groups of vaccinated vs unvaccinated has kept us preoccupied for many months now.
    But, perhaps we are at a point in time when camouflage can no longer hide the trap holding consumers and dedicated professionals’ in a manipulated trance, like hostages caught in a system of greed and corruption.
    Soon it will be clear, who and what must be purged from this collaborative structure of bottom-line business & government bureaucracy!

    Things will improve, once we can see the trap for what it is, then sovereign free will can be restored to all individuals.

  2. If only there were viruses.
    Then the rest of the insanity would make sense.

    We’ve known since June the CDC has NO PROOF any viruses have EVER existed.
    The downloadable responses in PDF form from the CDC stating this for a dozen viruses, are here:

    And, did you know that doctors in training receive MAYBE a half an hour on vaccines in their WHOLE training?

  3. Remember Khrushchev’s Prediction

    THIS WAS HIS ENTIRE QUOTE: A sobering reminder. It has been almost 62 years since Russia’s Khrushchev delivered this.
    Do you remember: September 29, 1959?
    “Your children’s children will live under communism, You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright; but we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have Communism. We will not have to fight you; We will so weaken your economy, until you will fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
    Do you remember what Russia’s Khrushchev said in 1959?
    Remember, socialism leads to Communism.
    So, how do you create a Socialist State?
    There are 8 levels of control. Read the following recipe:
    1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
    2) Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible. Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them.
    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control – Remove the ability of people to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect (food, housing, income) of their lives because that will make them fully dependent on the government.
    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to. Take control of what children learn in school.
    7) Religion – Remove the belief in God from government and schools because the people need to believe that ONLY the government knows what is best.
    8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. Eliminate the middle class. This will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    A perfect parallel to the radical Democrat / Liberal agenda!

    Sounds like Joe Biden’s agenda to me so far. What do you think ?

    You should also take note that during the Kennedy administration Nikita Khrushchev told our ambassador at a United Nations conference “You won’t need Russia to destroy you. You will destroy yourself from within.” And so we have our destroyers in the name of the Democratic party.

  4. Scott is absolutely right to give the cold shoulder to Lilly-livered bureaucrats, etc., regarding masks PLUS vaccinations.

    For almost all people, with healthy immune systems, one shot is enough.

    Such people hardly ever have a cold, or get the flu.

    They likely live well, eat well, do not smoke, so not drink, do not take drugs, etc

    Unfortunately, there are many people whose immune systems are damaged/not in good shape, and have bad lifestyle habits. Often those folks are wards of government do-goodie programs.

    Those folks should have two shots.

    Mandating everyone wear a mask, whereever they go, is off-the-charts ludicrous.
    It shows a great lack of common sense.

  5. The treatments are not working, as investigated and reported we are not treating the sick properly, nor are we allowed to do so. People are criminally negligent at best or committing murder in the name of political science, following NWO mandates when many entire countries, along with Houston Texas are saving lives. The intentional cover up is an accomplice to the crime.

    Lord, we need a bigger jail, is there space in your detention center? You know, the warm one?

  6. It never really was about stopping a virus, it always has been about, how many can we get vaccinated!
    The question is, why?

    • Because the goal is to monitor and manage the entire human population according to the “greater good” that none of us voted on. Already this is what’s happening in China; once the system goes digital, like it has in China, then there’s no escape from the watchful eye of the authorities. There are cameras everywhere in China. All transactions are monitored.

      IMHO, those at the very top of this scheme are sick, deranged individuals who lust after power and control. Those under them, like Schwab and Gates and Fauci, go along with orders on high, and may even believe that everything is necessary to save the planet, etc., etc. But saving the planet from global warming now seems part of a carefully thought-out plan: how else would you gain compliance from good folk who care about the environment and our future? Throw money at studies to find global warming under every stone, and it’s guaranteed that you’ll find it. But, it’s mostly pseudoscience.

      The problem is, too many people can’t imagine that people would actually have hatched such a plan. But if we look at what’s happening with Covid and with safe treatments that have been suppressed, then we can begin to understand that someone(s), somewhere, is making sure that things go according to a certain plan that seems to be leading to vaccinating everyone, and then instituting vaccine passports. Once this system is in place, there will be no escape. That’s why there’s such a big push to get everyone vaccinated; after that, all the problems will be blamed on the non-compliant whose movements will have to be controlled. Hence, vaccine passports. Hospitals are now being purged of the non-compliant because medical tyranny is the tip of the spear for the new system. You control people through fear: fear of a virus and fear of the planet burning up.

      Klaus Schwab said it best: we’re never going back to normal. If we don’t stand up and resist, our children’s children will never know what freedom was about and people like Schwab will have won; indeed, they very much plan on winning.

      How to resist? Insist on informed consent to medication, and insist on no vaccine passports. This is basic medical ethics, and right now people are working very, very hard to throw this ethics into the trash can, and our hospitals and federal authorities are very much behind this movement. You’d think they’d have learned a lesson or two from history, but we’re not in an era of reason. We’re in an era of emerging irrational tyranny, and it’s up to us to see it, and to stop it.

      • So the government is using a vaccine program to mandate vaccine passports to control what? Across the border vaccine passports are required to dine in at restaurants. Not very controlling like the theory you are sharing here.

        • Christian,

          Look at China. Everyone is controlled through technology. The government knows what people buy, where they’ve been, etc., and they have a social credit system set up that rewards and punishes according to your habits and your loyalty. It’s said that in the cities, they can find anyone within 15 minutes. There is no dissent allowed from the official “greater good.” If a party member or other worthy individual needs an organ transplant, they take a healthy prisoner, paralyze them, and take the organ(s), killing the patient in the process.

          China can do this because in China, the state is supreme and the individual exists to serve the state.

          Vaccine passports violate the basic ethical principle of informed consent to medication, with no penalty for refusal. That in itself is enough. But consider that once you have to show this social credit– that you’re a good citizen with up-to-date vaccines– then what other credits will be attached to this passport? How about: did you buy too many gas vehicles in one year? Did you buy too many guns? Have you supported right-wing, supposedly terrorist organizations? Did you make too many commentaries against the government on TNR?

          There are plenty of people out there who believe that the population must be managed and monitored to save the planet from global warming and who might very well be persuaded that freedom of movement, etc., are necessary sacrifices that must be made to save the planet. Only, global warming science is mostly pseudoscience.

          “Not very controlling”: if you have the required passport, it isn’t. But today there are countries where your options for buying food, let alone dining out, are limited if you don’t have a vaccine passport. You can’t go to libraries, etc. This is how the control starts. All of it is supposedly for our greater good, but our greatest good, as our founding generation knew, was that each individual is free to determine for themselves what their own greatest good is, with as little interference from the government as possible. This is partly why the movement is on to demonize the founding generation and dismiss the Constitution.

          It is very clear in Klaus Schwab’s book, “Covid-19: the Great Reset,” that this reset is all about monitoring and managing everything and everyone for a greater good that’s decided by someone else. Smart cities, smart grids, transhumanism, technological control– this is the goal of people like Schwab. Medicine? Decided by big pharma, and by hospitals that are now in the process of purging dissenters from the system. “You’ll own nothing and be happy”: one of the quotes from this great reset world. But, you and I will just be cogs in the wheel for the Great Design, and technology will allow for very subtle means of control, and controlling individuals starts with medical tyranny and vaccine passports. Then, “necessary” measures to control global warming will take over, and restrictions and control (monitor and manage) can be justified by appealing to “save the planet.”

          We haven’t even gotten to the control offered by a digital currency system issued by the central banks, but this is probably a fantasy because our trillion $$ spending plans are easily handled by the current system, and no fiscal crisis will emerge. Right?

          It’ll be tyranny, and it’s starting now with medical tyranny, the tip of the spear. You on board? Yes, they most certainly do have a plan, and it’s called “The Great Reset.” Plenty of people very much want this reset because they very much want to “stay safe” and “save the planet.” Manufactured consent?

          • The examples you are comparing aren’t the US though. China is an atrocious country with its own issues.

            A lot of predictions. I’m just not seeing what you are predicting but thank you for sharing your POV.

  7. All the above are excellent comments. From very early on, responsible doctors were saying that you NEVER give a vaccine during a pandemic. It is too easy for the virus to mutate. Now we have seen this happen. These health thugs are too blind (or corrupt) to see that early treatment is the proper response to the virus, before it gets into the lungs to do major damage.
    Other countries are successfully using Ivermectin and HCQ along with other drugs to contain the virus. But this regime, with this medical fiasco lead by Tony Mengele Fauci is bent on putting their boot on the population’s throat, hoping we’ll submit.
    Now these demonic people are canceling Dr. Peter McCullough, a world renowned physician and respected cardiologist. They are striping him of his many positions on medical boards, etc. etc. We all know the drill.
    Good news is that head of NIH, Francis Collins,(very, very powerful man in DC) has resigned, because he, as well as Fauci and other collaborators have been exposed for their GOF activities.

      • Here’s a source for what happened with HCQ. They deliberately suppressed this safe and effective drug, and they even went so far as to manufacture “trials” that were designed to fail because the doses given were far too high and were given in very sick patients, whereas HCQ is an early, outpatient treatment. One of the world’s leading medical journals, the Lancet, published a bogus study that had to be retracted.

        On this site, the AHRP (above link) you’ll also find courageous doctors standing up for the truth.

        It’s happening. Many people don’t want to look because it means that everything they used to believe in is falling apart. The medical system is rotten and it’s now working to impose medical tyranny on us: hospitals are on the very front lines of this tyranny as they purge the system of dissenters.

        What’s happening is simply unbelievable, but it’s happening.

        • So wouldn’t there be other studies though on HCQ? Cheap early treatments that are effective sound good to me but we need evidence right?

      • See the 10-minute mark in this video, wherein a doctor who left her job because of vaccine mandates describes early treatment she used to treat Covid-19 successfully.

        The mainstream media is only feeding us one narrative.

        Not only are hospitals on the front lines of disregarding informed consent to medication, but they’re also on the front lines of censoring valid early care for Covid-19.

        It’s unbelievable, and that’s why so many people can’t believe it. But, it’s happening.

  8. THESE PEOPLE–Scott, his “health” officials and many VT Legislators–would not recognize Science
    if it bit them in the arse. Science literally is the act of QUESTIONING, TESTING and using LOGIC when approaching mysteries or problems. It presupposes an ability to see and learn from our trials and mistakes. These folks apparently cannot learn. They’re learning impaired. Or ROBOTS.

    • In NWObonics the political in political science is silent. This is leading to much confusion.

      They don’t know there is a pure science, nor the difference between theory and law. Nor as you so aptly mentioned how the scientific process even works. They think testing and questioning is against their political control, there for not part of the (political) scince.

    • He is claiming a woman died not a child. Any idea on which vaccines, age, etc? Seems like another anecdote that needs to be verified before jumping to a conclusion.

      Isn’t this the same guy who claimed 50,000 Americans died from the vaccine?

      Is “zero guardrails” really accurate?

        • I don’t think my questions were answered in another thread. We have a lot of conversations happening.

      • Are you verifying the none information fed to you by the Corporate Media and the medical people here in Vermont? The same information that’s censored for you? If you question the enormous volume of information from thousands of doctors and scientist without reading them, your comments are nothing more than denial and prove a lack of critical thinking. You can not present a valid defense by asking for more proof without reading what has already been supplied to you here. Or, maybe you have other reasons to deflect? Maybe you blindly trust the people who want to inject an experimental gene therapy into your body. One that can not be removed once it’s in your blood and organs. If you have children, will you protect them or submit them to an FDA experiment without question?

  9. Meanwhile, the march to ignore any accountability for harms from these vaccines is advancing worldwide.

    These vaccines are under EUA, they aren’t being properly monitored in an open and transparent manner, and doctors and nurses are dismissing harms due to illegitimate guidance from the CDC and FDA. We’re throwing due diligence out the window.

    I’d really like to know what part of “science” and “the data” we’re following when we ignore safety signals from these vaccines and we suppose that it’s a wonderful idea to give our children vaccines when real-life safety signals are flashing triple red?? This is insane.

    The Scott administration has its eyes wide shut. They only know one thing: obedience to a broken system. Our children will be the victims of this foolishness.

    Is there another way? Yes. The authorities do not want us to go there. They’re doing everything they can to stop us from going there. What’s happening has rightly been called the crime of the century, but in the end everyone who was complicit will say “I was just doing my job” or “I was just following orders” or “I was just following guidance.”

    Any other time in history when doctors and administrators who were “just following orders” made horrendous choices?

    Will anyone who is making decisions dare to stand up and do, and say, the right thing? For our children’s sake?

  10. There are no ‘ “Breakthrough cases” – ‘vax’ plainly and simply doesn’t work. Most of the inoculated are now getting Covid and majority of hospitalizations and deaths are ‘vaxxed’. Soo syringed gas chamber works as intended sickening, crippling, maiming and killing the populous dumb enough to get it and allow kids to get it but it does not qualify as a ‘vaccine’, while installing an operating system inside of the victims. Bill Gates – still building operating systems lol.
    Meme Flash:

      • Well! The CDC!

        The same organization that demonizes ivermectin?

        All of this fear-mongering over ivermectin is made up. It contradicts evidence in numerous trials and population studies throughout the world.

        That CDC? The one that suppresses safe and effective treatment against Covid-19? The one that is partially funded by industry interests through the CDC Foundation?

        It’s pretty safe to assume that everything that comes out of CDC today is deliberately misleading. There are plenty of good, decent people working there. But what happens when people just do what they’re told and don’t ask too many questions? Answer: an agency can then be easily corrupted, and everyone will say that we just wanted to keep our jobs and thought we were doing the right thing. Just following orders.

        • Jim, I have read everything you and others followup with and appreciate sharing of links/data. I just don’t find anecdotes and single experiences very convincing. I wouldn’t throw away a study because it is associated with the CDC. Best thing IMO is to get the meta-analysis which gets multiple studies which can point out outliers.

      • To Christian M, Here’s a list of ingredients in the 4 injections as broken down investigative scientists and chemists. These ingredients are not listed on the fact sheets for the gene therapy injections. Note the graphene oxide which is a form of metal. Read on, there’s some scary stuff but no dead virus because it’s never been isolated.

      • Have been asked to back up your comments and have refused, and, further appear to be another blue-pill Frietag/red-pill siamese twin brother Jim invention – the purple-pilled siamese triplet, running out of colors John.

        Mysterious accounts follow one or the other account from thread to thread and have lively ‘discussions’ lol. Following recent allegations shazzam a new ‘friend’ appears. ;D

        Keeping the honest honest, Decoding the downfall one facepalm @ a time 😀

        • My goodness, stardust, you’ve figured out this nefarious plot! Congratulations.

          Because in light of everything that’s happening today, it really, really, really matters that one author might be posing as many authors, even if it were true. This is so important!!!

          Helluva contribution.

          For those unaware, stardust seems to think that I’m actually another person who has created another identity (that is, me) and is essentially arguing with (or alternately defending?) himself. Now apparently she thinks there’s yet another person who is actually this same one person. Because this one person apparently has nothing better to do …. Right.

          Yup. I know.

          • Currently 4 in the entourage arriving like birds on a telephone wire…Sherry Lewis rests Captain Obvious…how’s the wood pile John lol

          • stardust, you’re something else. I gotta hand it to ya. We’re all the same person, only– even better– we don’t know it.

            It really is “so obvious,” like you say.

          • Useful idiots Stalin and Lenin loved love chaos merchanting, and are to be expected even here in Vermont, useful idiots of the Marxist agenda, and have their place in the shell game of truth using word salading, gaslighting, ad homineim attacks, and false accusations.
            She’s our ‘divide and conquer’ mascot. Every one has to have one.
            Saddest of all is she thinks what she is doing is ‘contributing’ on some level.
            You gotta’ love’em.
            They start off all cozy and friendly…but always out themselves in the end.**
            **let the ad hominem attacks begin.

      • Look at the footnotes for the CDC data being presented. “Fully vaccinated” is defined as being 14 days past a single shot operating system install…I’m sorry ‘injection’, or 14 days past the second of a two shot deal.

        It’s meaningless. Someone could be 40 days or more past their first shot, go to the hospital with vax reactions or symptoms and be recorded as “unvaccinated”. Sleight of hand with numbers.

        Let’s Go Brandon.

  11. I sure hate the way these pubic health bureaucrats invoke “science” exactly as if they were witch doctors of some primitive tribe. “Science” incorporates evidence from experience, closing the loop of hypothesis and theory. So many things the smartest of them have projected turned out completely wrong.
    Honest education about reality would include knowledge that “scientists” are often wrong, and that the process is supposed to be self-correcting when the theory is disproven.
    It’s all fake now, based on cartoon-level physics, which don’t even work out too well for the coyote.
    Science, schmience. They might as well cancel school altogether. Disgusting.
    Oh yes, Let’s Go Brandon.

  12. The hypocracy here is stunning. If the Democratic legislative leadership really wanted to impose a mask mandate they could call a special session and pass a law doing so until whatever metrics they wanted to were met.

    This is not so much about health concerns as trying to undermine a popular Republican Governor who is loath to invoke dictatorial state of emergency powers, which he correctly believes should be severly limited in the times it should be used.

    • Political posturing by the liberal left. The facts are twisted to meet the dogma and off they go, with self aggrandizement. Until the public stops listening to the fear mongers, this ‘pandemic’ continues.

    • Vaccines aren’t a success when we still have surging hospitalizations and deaths. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is not working. We based everything on vaccine-induced herd immunity: that was what the 80% number was all about. Have we forgotten? They aren’t a success if we ignore vaccine harms and pretend they don’t exist: a true measure of vaccine success would take risk/benefit to all age groups into account, but we can’t do that if physicians ignore harms– and they do.

      The answer to our Covid problem isn’t more vaccines or masks or lockdowns or restrictions. The answer is to make safe, cheap, effective prophylactic treatments available free to all Vermonters who want them. This is the only thing that makes real sense, because the science on the safety and efficacy of these treatments is rock-solid; they aren’t under EUA; they aren’t experimental; they have a large body of evidence supporting their use; and they have a proven track record of safety.

      It really is time for our Vermont leaders to stop pretending they’re following the data and the science, because they aren’t. They’re doing the exact opposite: they’re ignoring evidence and engaging in mindless follow-the-leader, with no critical examination at all of what they’re being told. And now, with shoddy, wholly inadequate due diligence, these same leaders are eager to push these vaccines on our youngest population.
