Joe Biden has surrounded himself with a lot of very, very ignorant human beings, starting with Kamala Harris on down. From Psaki to Buttigieg to Kerry to Levine to Lloyd Austin and everybody in between, this administration is a complete train wreck.
With the omicron variant now making headlines, liberals are seemingly more freaked out than ever before. Biden’s secretary of defense, Lloyd Austin, is now telling active duty military personnel that they will not be paid unless they get the jab.
Think about that for a second.
From Washington Times:
National Guard troops refusing the COVID-19 vaccination won’t be paid for their drills or be excused from any training or duty conducted while under federal authority, according to a memo released Tuesday by the Pentagon.
The memo from Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin amounts to a shot across the bow to Oklahoma Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt, who has sought to block Mr. Austin’s vaccine mandate for personnel in the Oklahoma Army and Air National Guard who don’t want to take the vaccine.
“Vaccination is essential to the health and readiness of the force,” Mr. Austin wrote in his memo to the service secretaries, along with other Pentagon officials, including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs and the chief of the National Guard Bureau.
“No Department of Defense funding may be allocated for payment of duties performed under [federal authority] for members of the National Guard who do not comply with the Department of Defense COVID-19 vaccination requirements,” the memo stated. “No credit or excused absence shall be afforded to members who do not participate in drills, training or other duty due to failure to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.”
