Dr. Joseph Mercola Asks: Will Vaccination Become the Price of Admission to Society?

Michelle Fiscus Channels Jussie Smollett

Write myself a letterLast month, we shared a story from Tennessee, where the top vaccine official felt threatened having received a muzzle in mail. this week, reports say she may have mailed herself the muzzle, in a case reminiscent of Jussie Smollett's. Who among us hasn't wished we had muzzled ourselves from time to time? How dumb do you have to be to use your own credit card? VISA gift card, Michelle. VISA gift card. Joke aside, this bizarre twist only deepens the mistrust and growing divide on both sides of the Covid vaccination debate.


Tennessee probe finds fired vaccine official mailed herself muzzle despite claims Republicans silenced her

"...A joint state investigation found that a former top Tennessee vaccine official might have mailed herself the same muzzle she claimed last month to have received as a threat to keep quiet, arguing that Republicans had pushed for her firing because she shared factual information with doctors about the legalities of vaccinating un-emancipated minors against COVID-19 without parental consent. 

Records now indicate that the muzzle was paid for by Dr. Michelle Fiscus' own American Express credit card, according to an investigative report from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security obtained by The Tennessean. In the memo, Special Agent Mario Vigil noted that "there is no evidence to indicate that the dog muzzle was intended to threaten Dr. Fiscus." 



Right again, Bob Moffit. We are living the Milgram experiment day after day after day. The pretense that mandatory vaccination is necessary for healthy people in order to protect people medically unable to receive shots... well, it's obviously just a pretense, if the incident you mention is any indication.

I think I am younger than you are, but I am still able to say that the country I knew as America no longer exists. Whoever commented on here about the Bill of Rights becoming the "Bill of Suggestions" is dead-on. Kids in public schools in the town where I used to live are only allowed to play with kids from their own class (not grade, but class) at (outdoor) recess. So much for freedom of association.

This situation in Tn makes me think the officials are underestimating the hesitant. Free snacks, lotteries, etc have been used for a long time to appeal to the lowest common denominator . The powers that be (TPTB) don't have the facts to back up their claims so they give us the old "razzle-dazzle" and are surprised when we are not amused.

TOB … last night watched a segment featuring a man who claimed to have called numerous store owners asking them if someone suffering health condition that provides them with a MEDICAL exemption from covid vaccine will be allowed to enter their store .. restaurants and groceries mainly .. and was told by ALL owners they will not honor medical exemptions as per DICTATE of MAYOR DEBLASIO … all of them sympathized with caller but added those dreaded words "WE'RE JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS"..

Where have we heard that despicable excuse before????


You are right, Bob Moffit. Someone close to me who has always called me a tinfoil hat-wearer called me over the summer to ask me for help in finding an MD who would write a medical exemption for his wife, who is nursing their first child.

Niemoller is a favorite of mine, but I did not know until recently about the Stuttgart Declaration of Guilt. I've come across quite a few men of the cloth who would benefit by pondering whether this applies to them: "Through us infinite wrong was brought over many peoples and countries. That which we often testified to in our communities, we express now in the name of the whole church: We did fight for long years in the name of Jesus Christ against the mentality that found its awful expression in the [substitute 'medical' for 'National Socialist'] regime of violence; but we accuse ourselves for not standing to our beliefs more courageously, for not praying more faithfully, for not believing more joyously, and for not loving more ardently."


I guess Carolina Biological doesn't carry horse heads.


Fiscus bought her own muzzle ?

What a great idea, she should buy them for the rest of her department !!!
Then send two to Anthony Fauci and iron one to Francis Collins.

"Everybody on this site has been advocating for her own kid for years (decades!), but it is time for the rest of America to wake up'

Suddenly …. many in our mainstream media who have been silent on "mandated" vaccine for our children .. are now voicing great concern that THEY will be REQUIRED to be vaccinated. To THEM I say welcome to my world .. good to have you speaking up … WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN THE LAST TWENTY YEARS AS STATE AFTER STATE DILIGENTLY REMOVED PARENTAL "EXEMPTIONS" .. PHILOSOPICAL, MEDICAL, RELIGIOUS …

For TWENTY YEARS .. they said nothing when children were denied their right to attend public schools for which their parents pay for.

It reminds me of Martin Niemoller in Germany so many years ago:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.


Many years ago, I attended a state representative's town hall event to talk to him about vaccine exemptions. I was only able to talk to his secretary, who voiced the view that we need mandatory vaccines for school, "or else some people's parents would never take them to the doctor."

Even if we stipulate that this view is correct (and obviously, I'm not), we have to admit that public policy has now done a 180. Vaccines are mandatory, but they're distributed at school-based clinics (or in my former town, no kidding, at a casino). Instead of using vaccine policy (and mandatory dental exam policy and mandatory eye exam policy) to push parents to form relationships with trusted healthcare providers, school districts are implementing state health mandates by bringing nurses into schools for one-shot deals. No trusted relationship is formed. No "medical home" is created. No health care professional knows the student's medical history and reasons to advise for or against a particular treatment or prophylactic.

Tennessee's "outreach" (reaching behind parents' backs) was egregious when it came to promoting experimental coronavirus shots to kids under 18, but it has always been wrong-headed. It highlights a sleight of hand that has been happening via "public health" authorities for years: The transition from "trust your doctor" to "trust recommendations made by state or federal officials, and have a product administered to you by a stranger." If kids are "behind on their shots," and we believe a school district is empowered to take action, that action should be getting the kids signed up for S-CHIP so they can see a doctor whom they will get to know and trust, and who can make informed recommendations, not lining them up in a high school gym or a casino and having a stranger who will never see them again hit them with a biological product.

Fiscus is just one in a long line of bureaucrats who think our children's lives and bodies fall under their purview. It is perhaps unsurprising that she didn't think she had to use the Visa gift card (I LOL'd at that one, Kim!), because she has always viewed herself as the law. L'etat, c'est moi, or something like that.

Everybody on this site has been advocating for her own kid for years (decades!), but it is time for the rest of America to wake up. We parents make our kids' medical decisions, informed by our own research and by trusted medical professionals, not based on top-down recommendations by bureaucrats who don't know our kids and who won't have to deal with the results of their bulk mandates.
