Manifesto Against Mandates
I am not an attorney, but even an entrepreneur such as I have drawn on abundant constitutional, legislative and judicial precedents in firmly rejecting mandates.
Joe Biden invokes OhmyGod-icron as a pretext to impose tyranny, as hospitals fill up in heavily vaccinated states such as Maine and New Hampshire, but not so much in the free states of Florida and Arizona for example. Now Biden threatens new abuses of power over the autonomy of citizens, to be announced this coming Tuesday.
Two decades ago, very few of us considered medical freedom to be the line-in-the-sand, single-issue election criteria. Back then, I was an avid reader of American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, National Vaccine Information Center, and Australian Vaccine Network, the most prolific sources of medical freedom information that I saw at the time, and I simply kept an ear to the ground.
Then, eleven years ago, when some of us saw attempted medical tyranny in our profession, I co-founded, along with a handful of other naturopathic physicians, an IRB and organization that stands for medical freedom at https://NaturopathicStandards.org. Today, a renaissance of citizen and physician groups dedicated to medical freedom are springing up all over, and it is a beautiful sight.
But the horizon is still stormy with attempted and enforced mandates by governments throughout the world, as if tyrants had the right to control the bodies of other humans.
The medical freedom movement stands firm: There are no valid mandates anywhere of masks, lockdowns, vaccines or other liberty infringements by governments. Standing firm in individual autonomy, we in the medical freedom movement never force a mask or vaccine or any medical procedure on others, nor do we tolerate such abuse of ourselves.
Likewise, there has never been, nor will there be, a mask mandate or a vaccine mandate or any medical mandate of any kind at my clinic, and this article constitutes legal notice of the same. Not that I even need it. This is despite the fact that the fascist in the White House wants to impose them, and despite the fact the Tempe, Arizona mayor already attempted to impose a mask mandate last year, in the mistaken presumption that his jurisdiction would be so extensive as to allow such personal assaults. Sure, his jurisdiction is geographic and covers all of Tempe, but it sure as hell does not extend to personal bodily decisions, i.e., he doesn’t get to force me to wear a watch or to eat oatmeal for breakfast. Nor does he get to pretend that a pandemic occurred (which it didn’t; see proof here: https://pdmj.org/papers/is_there_a_pandemic/), or that any emergency powers that he or the White House Fuhrer presumes to grab would be therefore justified. And no emergency powers whatsoever are granted Constitutionally at all, which by the Tenth Amendment means any such attempt is null and void. The word “emergency” does not even appear in the US Constitution. [i]
There are a few basic reasons that there will be no medical mandates whatsoever at any time for either staff or patients at my clinic, primarily:
1) First Do No Harm is not an empty motto, but actual policy at my clinic. Nobody gets to obstruct anyone’s breathing or to inject Biden’s / Pfizer’s / Moderna’s cardiotoxic liquid bullets into people. But even more importantly, . . .
2) Vaccines are clearly medical treatments, and masks fall within the FDA’s definition of medical devices. [ii] [iii] Medicine and medical devices must never be imposed, coerced or pressured. Guaranteed security in one’s person, and freedom from medical mandates is abundant in the US Constitution, in specifically Amendments 4, 5, 8 and especially 9 and 10, the Nuremberg Code, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, particularly Article 3, the Geneva Medical Declaration, US state and federal informed consent laws, and basic human decency. Neither Biden, judge, mayor or self-appointed Karen gets to dictate the medical decisions of others. Nor do I as physician, even having a license to practice medicine. Medicine must never be forced. The bodily autonomy of the patient is enshrined in the above documents and vigorously defended by me and those like me.
3) Politicians’ lack of a license to practice medicine further disqualifies them from attempting to practice it. And that goes for the fascist Fuhrer in the White House.
Benjamin Rush was a colonial physician and signer of the Declaration of Independence. He warned his contemporaries:
“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people who want doctors and treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.”
It is often lamented in the medical freedom movement that his contemporaries did not heed Dr. Rush’s warning. But I would argue that they did pay attention, and then generalized the objectives of his warning to exceed merely the medical realm. The Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution asserts that powers not specifically delegated to the federal government by the US Constitution are reserved to the states and to the people. Because the Constitution comes nowhere near allowing some idiot like Joe Biden to force a poisonous stew of Pfizer spittle to be injected into you, the right to refuse such abuse seems clear. The Ninth Amendment asserts rights that are not listed in the US Constitution to be reserved to the people. This would argue even more strongly against being forced to take the kuhlayd against one’s will. The Fourteenth Amendment provides for equal protection. FDA and CDC employees and members of Congress are not required to take the injected poison. Therefore, we must not be required to do so either.
None of those Amendments may be overturned by any Court. They are inviolable parts of the basis of the laws of the United States.
Are the COVID vaccines really poisonous? Well, aside from having caused more deaths in the US in just the last year than all other vaccines combined over the previous 30 years, [iv] there is this: The FDA was forced by court order to disclose over 1,500 different types of injuries observed to have occurred following the Pfizer vaccines alone:
A pharmacist in a major hospital is a patient of mine, and in our consult yesterday, I happened to ask: What are you seeing in your hospital? The pharmacist replied that heparin use is skyrocketing, like nothing this pharmacist has previously seen. (If you’re wondering why that is, here’s a hint: They don’t call it the clotshot for nothing, and heparin is an anti-clotting agent. If COVID had caused that clotting that is now being seen in the hospitals, then there would have been unprecedented heparin use last year, but last year was not remarkable for heparin demand.)
On the other hand, the CDC has just published a list of Omicron symptoms: Cough, fatigue, runny nose, congestion. Okay, we in healthcare, and you at home, can deal with that in a therapeutic way. Every health care provider can, and that is where emphasis should be: Helping the sick as needed and desired, but getting out of everyone else’s way.
My Substack article last month addressed this burning issue, “Congress and OSHA gave us tools against mandates” https://colleenhuber.substack.com/p/congress-and-osha-gave-us-tools-against
It cited further support for rejecting mandates. But there is an even more specific support in the Arizona OSHA law. I know because in my recent annual OSHA review for the staff, I was required by law to cite it, and I am required by law to post it for all staff to see, and it is posted in our OSHA Manual. It says:
“The Act requires each employer to furnish his employees with a place of employment free from recognized hazards that might cause serious injury or death.” [v]
BOOM. No clotshots given here or mandated here!
There are, and may come more, judicial decisions that are contrary to the above, and there may be fascists loyal to their Fuhrer Biden who don’t like the above, but the Constitutional separation of powers prohibits either the Executive Branch or the Courts from usurping the role of the Legislative Branch in making laws. Even if unconstitutional laws somehow get passed, “any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void.” Marbury vs Madison, 5 US 137.
So I think we will all be okay, but only if we stand firm. If you go weak and sacrifice your rights, then you make it all the harder for the rest of us to fight for everyone’s rights. If we do not stand firm, we fail to heed the warnings of Frederick Douglass, Solzhenitsyn, Kafka, Orwell, Gandhi and in our time RFK, Jr.
A sign hangs in the front office of my clinic: “The policy of this clinic is to uphold the US Constitution.” Do we really need to say that in order to beat back lawlessness? 2022 may show us some answers to this question. Business owners, feel free to post that sign also if you like, if only to inspire your customers to do the same, that is, to assert the US Constitution as 1) a document that you and they have some familiarity with, and 2) an assertion of the irrefutable and invincible predominance of the US Constitution in all matters that transpire within the US, and 3) a warning that the US Constitution will be invoked as needed by those whose rights are threatened.
