Pharma Weakens Our National Defense: Ineligible Recruits, Involuntary Separations, & Punishment for Non-Consent
The US military currently has a man-power crisis on every front: recruiting, retention, attrition, and morale. The commonality behind all these challenges is the toxic influence of prescription drug dependency of modern “public health.” In recent years, public health transitioned away from sanitation and clean air and water, and towards new annual vaccine mandates for every man, woman, and child—regardless of natural immunity or risk factors. Will the resistance to the experimental SARS-CoV-2 vaccine become the catalyst that forces the Department of Defense to re-evaluate whether the goal to protect the force is actually purging the force?
According to Thomas Spoehr, Director at the Center for National Defense,
a number of factors have caused a recruiting crisis in the US Armed Forces which is evident in the 2023 US defense budget projection of a reduction of 12,000 soldiers in the Army, despite an all-time high of $50,000 bonuses for new recruits.
Fewer young adults qualify for military service due to increasing obesity, mental health issues (including a generation with an epidemic of developmental disorders affecting 1 in 44 US children), criminal records, and lack of high school degrees, leaving only 25% of Americans aged 17-24 eligible to enlist.
The DOD Prescription Medication Reporting System signals evidence of a pharmacology epidemic that is disqualifying thousands of remaining applicants. 1 in 12 US children ages 12-17 are on prescribed psychotropic drugs and ineligible for enlistment.
The recruiting crisis is exacerbated by the retention crisis caused by the Department of Defense (DOD) mandate for Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) COVID-19 vaccines.
According to the FDA, EUA medical products and tests are voluntary, based on an investigational status, and without liability and consumer protections. In a legal precedent, Doe v. Rumsfeld (2003) decided against DOD’s Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program (AVIP) on the basis that the Anthrax vaccine was an illegally mandated experimental drug that was not FDA approved.
DOD mandated COVID-19 vaccines, but the FDA approved products of Comirnaty and Spikevax have not begun production yet and are unavailable. Service members have the right to refuse the stockpiles of EUA labeled versions of the COVID-19 vaccines. Despite the DOD’s false claim that FDA approved vaccines and EUA vaccines are “interchangeable,” these vaccines are legally distinct and not listed in the FDA’s Purple Book as biosimilar and interchangeable.
The DOD Vaccine Data reports that 329,910 service members are only partially vaccinated as of May 2022 with the COVID-19 vaccine, and under current mandates will need an accommodation to be retained for service. As of February 2022, media reported 16,000 service members have been waiting months for approval of religious accommodations, and pending involuntary separation if those requests are denied. These numbers are potential catastrophic losses to military personnel, with years of experience and training to be lost, even as Dr. Fauci declared COVID-19 a mild, endemic virus like the flu.
Billion-dollar contracts with the pharmaceutical companies that are mandating products for the “health of the force” are disconnected from the harm to military readiness caused by personnel losses. DOD’s initial contract with Moderna cost $1.97 Billion, and the initial contract with Pfizer cost $1.95 Billion.
Court Martials, Lawsuits, and Involuntary Separations
In April 2022, 1LT Mark Bashaw, an Army Public Health Officer, was the first defendant in an Army court martial for his refusal to comply with COVID-19 EUA masking and EUA testing requirements.
In United States v 1LT Mark C Bashaw, the US Army charged Bashaw, under Article 92, Failure to Obey an Order, with: failure to take a medical test, and failure to wear a mask. Bashaw plead not guilty to the charges. The Army recommended formal reprimand and $25,000 in forfeiture of pay. Judge Robert Cohen found Bashaw guilty of both charges, but recommended no additional punishments beyond the conviction, which is the equivalent of a civilian misdemeanor. Judge Cohen commented on Bashaw’s exemplary 16 years of meritorious service during sentencing.
Bashaw’s court martial demonstrated that DOD is submissively following the CDC and its partnership with Pfizer and Moderna to coerce EUA masks, EUA tests, and EUA vaccines, and to punish refusers and whistleblowers. Service members who refused the EUA vaccines describe the command climate utilizing coercion in the forms of restrictions from work travel, exclusion from training and schools, and disapproval of promotions and positions. Service members also describe religious inquisitions that are aimed to discredit the morality of the member rather than the sincerity of the religious accommodation request.
There are currently 23 lawsuits pending against the DOD COVID-19 vaccine mandate, with an unknown number of service members retiring early or requesting voluntary separation to avoid the mandates. One Army colonel seeking retirement, rather than promotion to brigadier general, received an email from the Pentagon with a long list of unfilled command positions in active-duty units due to shortages of qualified officers. A retiring Department of the Army civilian was notified that 36,000 DOD civilians are in a backlog of applications to retire as soon as possible. Service members refer to this unpublicized military exodus as “the great resignation.”
There is evidence that DOD has adopted retaliation tactics in response. At least 30 service members have reported being separated under Honorable or General discharges, and then later receiving a misconduct code in their final paperwork (DD214). This mischaracterization of their military service implies to future employers that they committed a serious offense and limits their access to medical and educational benefits as veterans.
These overall loss numbers indicate that purging the force for the alleged health of the force has been adopted as DOD policy. DOD reports 95 deaths in the military associated with COVID-19 to date. In comparison, DOD has separated 3,711 service members for non-compliance with COVID-19 mandates. These losses could be mitigated by recognizing natural immunity and offering therapeutic treatments to members who become sick with a virus that has a 99.9% survival rate.
Adverse Reactions, Suicides, and Attrition
On January 24, 2022, Sen. Ron Johnson chaired a panel discussion “COVID-19: A Second Opinion” with medical experts sounding the alarm on the vaccine and current medical treatment protocols. The doctors on the panel warned that DOD and the CDC have withheld surveillance data since September 2021 that the vaccine is causing catastrophic harm and failing to prevent infection, with breakout cases in 70% of those vaccinated.
At the panel, attorney Thomas Renz summarized data from sworn affidavits of three military medical whistleblowers. The whistleblowers provided data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) indicating that miscarriages increased 300% in 2021 over the previous five-year average, cancer increased 300% in 2021 over the previous five-year average, and neurological disorders increased 1000% in 2021 over the past five-year average.
The DMED data is a strong prediction of unprecedented attrition in the armed forces due to medical disqualifications in the next few years.
The pandemic policies also contributed to increased deaths of despair. DOD reported 584 suicides in 2020 and 518 suicides in 2021, across Active Duty, Reserves, and National Guard. These suicides will likely increase as service members realize the chain of command’s betrayal of claiming experimental vaccines were FDA approved and mandatory.
Are Pharmaceutical Companies Calling the Shots at DOD?
In conclusion, our military has war-gamed and fought many types of foreign adversaries, but is it capable of recognizing a domestic threat? Is pharmacology undermining the recruitment pool and retention of the junior ranks of our armed forces? Are pharmaceutical contracts facilitating punishment and attrition among refusers in order to sell millions of doses to DOD? Does the pharmaceutical industry profit from iatrogenic injuries and their subsequent treatments in US military personnel? If the answers are yes, then Pharma stands in an entrenched position as an unchecked and unrestrained domestic threat to national security.
