“The military COVID shot mandate is dead.”
A dear friend/correspondent in Tennessee alerted us to this story. We would be very surprised if you hear about it anywhere on the Babylonian Media. Here are excerpts from the story. The story is linked here.
QUOTE: DOD Pays Liberty Counsel $1.8 Million for COVID Litigation
Oct. 4, 2023 Tampa, FL — A signed settlement agreement has been filed in the Middle District Court of Florida that requires the Department of Defense (DOD) to pay Liberty Counsel $1.8 million for attorney’s fees and costs after two years of litigation since the Biden administration issued the memoranda mandating that service members receive the COVID-19 shot.
As a result of Liberty Counsel’s class action lawsuits in Navy SEAL 1 v. Austin and Colonel Financial Management Officer, et al. v. Austin, and after Liberty Counsel obtained multiple restraining orders and injunctions, including a class-wide injunction, the DOD was forced to abandon its mandate and rescind the August 24, 2021 and November 30, 2021 memoranda on January 10, 2023.
This settlement agreement comes after thousands of service members have been denied religious accommodation requests (RAR) from the unlawful federal COVID shot mandate.
Some service members have been punished, demoted, or discharged as a result. The many restraining orders and the class-wide injunction Liberty Counsel won stopped the DOD’s unlawful shot mandate…
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said,
“The military COVID shot mandate is dead. Our heroic service members can no longer be forced to take this experimental jab that conflicts with their religious convictions. …
At the same time, we have come to realize that many of the high-ranking members of leadership, the Pentagon, and the Biden administration need to be replaced. Collectively, they dishonored the brave men and women who defend our freedom. We stand ready to defend our defenders of freedom if any religious discrimination occurs in the future.”
This is indeed a victory in this particular battle. The only downside is that we the taxpayers are on the hook for the money. Justice would require that the wrongdoers who unconstitutionally mandated the jabs be held accountable. But we will praise God for this victory.
