On November 30, Congressman Neal Dunn joined Republicans like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger in voting for a $400 million bill designed to upgrade America’s immunization information systems. While I have no doubt that Dr. Dunn’s heart was in the right place and that he believes this bill was in the best interests of our community, what he demonstrates is a dangerous lack of understanding of the situation of this nation and the real dangers posed by what Governor DeSantis aptly calls “the state of biomedical security.”
I understand that these are strong words. I don’t use them lightly.
As for Dr. Dunn, I read his defense of the bill. He points out that this vote does not authorize or fund vaccine mandates. It’s true. He also points out that the funding in this bill is not limited to the CDC and the federal government. This is also true; much of this funding goes to states and other jurisdictions.
What this ignores, however, is the context at the time.
Over the past two years, we have seen war declared on the American people in the name of “public health”. This war has been fought by liars in lab coats, such as fraudsters like Dr Anthony Fauci – whose devilish arrogance now makes him portray himself in a cartoonish way as the individual embodiment of “science”. He is increasingly demonstrating his explicit hostility towards the elected democratic officials he is supposed to serve.
His actions deserve criminal investigations, not additional federal funds.
The stormtroopers in this war on America are drawn from the very institutions that benefit from this bill. The CDC’s unscientific edicts have been used to justify the destruction of American businesses, terrorizing our children, and resulting in tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths from drug abuse and uncontrolled medical problems. Dr. Dunn’s defense of this bill points out that the CDC promises that vaccine information “will only be used for its intended purpose and will not be used in a punitive manner.”
Respectfully, Dr. Dunn, after everything we’ve seen over the past five years, how could a Republican believe that?
The other front of this assault has been at the state level. While Floridians have benefited from the leadership of Governor DeSantis – who understands the moment and recognizes that Fauci and the CDC do not have the best interests of his constituents – many of our compatriots, especially in Democratic-controlled states, have been the victims of the state of biomedical security. The material, financial and psychological damage they have suffered over the past two years is something anyone who has spent the previous two years in the Free State of Florida cannot imagine.
Dr. Dunn decided to give more money to these authorities.
While it’s true that this bill doesn’t directly authorize the imposition of Biden’s vaccination mandates, what it does do is bolster the infrastructure that would be used to enforce those mandates if they were allowed to occur. This is tantamount to justifying increased “counter-terrorism funding” to the FBI, as the agency actively declares the parents of the students involved as “domestic terrorists”.
Speaking to Republicans in Bay County and throughout Florida’s second congressional district, I found no one who voted for Dr. Dunn so he could help improve the infrastructure of the CDC and other public health authorities.
Most of them understand who the enemy is.
One of the biggest embarrassments of Joe Biden’s horrible regime was how his actions directly helped aid and empower the Afghan Taliban.
Dr. Dunn’s biggest embarrassment is doing the same to enemies closer to home.
