Earlier in the week Biden suggested that those who are yet to be vaccinated are “sowing enormous confusion.”
“We have a pandemic because of the unvaccinated, and they’re sowing enormous confusion,” Biden said.
“And there’s only one thing we know for sure, if those other 100 million people got vaccinated, we’d be in a very different world. So get vaccinated. If you haven’t, you’re not nearly as smart as I said you were.”
And now he has gone to ’11’ on the ‘your body, no choice’ amplifier, saying Thursday night that he’ll require federal workers to prove they’ve been vaccinated against Covid-19 or wear masks and submit to frequent coronavirus testing.
Additionally, the rules will cover millions of federal workers, including the military and on-site contractors.
“What I’m trying to do is keep people safe,” Biden said Thursday at the White House.
“If in fact you’re unvaccinated, you present a problem to yourself, to your family and to those with whom you work.”
Biden also asked his team to take steps to apply similar standards to all federal contractors and encourage private sector employers to follow the same approach.
NEW STEPS: @POTUS says federal workers must be vaccinated or face mandatory testing, masking, social distancing, etc.

Remember last year when he said he would not advocate mandatory vaccines?
I’m old enough to remember when @potus told us he wouldn’t make masks or vaccines mandatory.
Well, gas-lighting and sociopathic speak… I’ll just force the federal government and private sector to do it for me. #pos #Resist #LiberalismIsTheRealPandemic https://t.co/McHgtwNdQ5 pic.twitter.com/hbd8xQweev

There’s just one thing… the federal worker mandate does not apply to postal workers?

What do postal workers know about the science that Biden doesn’t? We don’t know, but dare we mention it could be related to the 220,000-member strong union’s leaders waiting to be negotiated with.
The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) has said that it opposes mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations, amid reports that the White House is considering so-called vaccine passports as a condition of employment for federal employees.
The union, which represents over 220,000 postal workers, released a statement late Wednesday saying that while it will encourage postal workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, it is “not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent.”
“Issues related to vaccinations and testing for COVID-19 in the workplace must be negotiated with the APWU. At this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations in relation to U.S. postal workers,” the statement said.
The APWU released its statement a day after President Joe Biden said that the White House is considering mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for all federal workers.
“That’s under consideration right now,” the president said Tuesday when pressed on the issue on a trip to McLean, Virginia.
Critics of the measure argue that the three COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have not yet received full approval from the Food and Drug Administration pending the safety and efficacy results of the on-going phase three trials.
Vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson are currently being administered in the United States under emergency use authorization (EUA), meaning that vaccine manufacturers aren’t held liable for any injury, including death, that their COVID-19 vaccine may cause.
And finally, in case you wondered where this goes next? Lockdowns are not off the table…
