There was a time when the FBI commanded Americans’ utmost respect. That was prior to 2016 when they actively participated in a plan to sabotage the candidacy of Donald Trump and following his unexpected victory, his presidency. At every turn, top FBI officials sought to destroy President Donald Trump. I don’t need to compile a list, because their complicity is well known and speaks for itself.
Last week, the FBI issued a public service announcement warning U.S. citizens not to buy or make vaccine cards or misrepresent their COVID-19 vaccination status. The agency cautioned they may be breaking the law if they do so.
The FBI is, of course, referring to the recent Biden Administration proposal that citizens be issued a “vaccine passport” so they can travel freely throughout the country.
The requirement of a “vaccine passport,” which would indicate whether or not a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19 or alternatively tested negative within a stipulated time frame, is a violation of our civil rights. It’s just one more of the many travesties conjured up by Democratic politicians eager to wield their emergency powers against their constituents.
This proposal triggered immediate outrage from conservatives who are fed up with the government’s overreach and the loss of our civil rights in the name of COVID-19.
According to a weekend article in The New York Times, “the Biden administration has made clear that it will neither issue nor require the passports,”
So, why would the nation’s premier law enforcement agency try to enforce this? Why did this warrant a warning about breaking the law? It’s not even a law. It’s a mere proposal and a deeply unpopular and divisive one at that.
We've all seen friends posting their #COVID19 vaccination cards on social media. If you make or buy a fake one to misrepresent your vaccination status, you endanger other people and may also be breaking the law. Learn more: https://t.co/AAZWyW64fi pic.twitter.com/jVVZbpP0We

Is it any wonder that so many red state governors vehemently oppose vaccine passports?
On Friday, Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick DeSantis issued an executive order “prohibiting the use of so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports. The Legislature is working on making permanent these protections for Floridians and I look forward to signing them into law soon.” The order can be viewed here.
The document states that vaccination records are “private health information which should not be shared by mandate.” In addition, they “reduce individual freedom and harm patient privacy.”
The order also states that businesses in Florida are “prohibited from requiring patrons or customers to provide any documentation” about their COVID-19 vaccination status.
Today I issued an executive order prohibiting the use of so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports. The Legislature is working on making permanent these protections for Floridians and I look forward to signing them into law soon. Read my EO here – https://t.co/6QwLsLWEWm

All I know is that we the people need to stand up and fight against the tyranny the Biden Administration is trying to thrust upon us. We must do this loudly and often.
Last week, the Democratic House candidate from IA-02 who lost the election to her Republican opponent by six points withdrew her bid to have the election overturned by a Democrat controlled House committee. The candidate, Rita Hart, had the full support of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She didn’t withdraw because she realized it was wrong to try to steal a seat in Congress. Hart withdrew because the “disinformation campaign from the right wing media” became intolerable to her.
From that, we must learn a larger lesson. If we’re loud enough and persistent enough, we can make a difference.
Memo to the FBI: Why don’t you get your own house in order, maybe catch a few real criminals before you try circulating something so tone-deaf, unwelcome and unnecessary like this again.
