Air Force Academy cadets may not graduate
because they’re unvaccinated

They refused the vaccine. Now four cadets at the Air Force Academy may not graduate as a result—and could be forced to pay back hefty tuition fees. So far it’s the only military academy imposing such harsh penalties on its cadets, Air Force officials said. The cadets at the Colorado Springs academy also could be prevented from being commissioned as military officers this month because they refused the COVID-19 vaccine. They may also have to pay back thousands of dollars in tuition costs, the Air Force said. The Army and Navy said that as of now, no seniors will be blocked from graduating at the U.S. Military Academy


In the name of Equity and Inclusion, there should be an out where you can pay the $800 or whatever directly to Pfizer in lieu of taking the dangerous shots that do not work as advertised. And these four should be put into leadership positions because obviously they're a lot smarter than the brass.

Once the vaccine injuries are validated, the VA will be paying billions of dollars monthly as duty related disability payments. Anyone on active duty that took the shots and ended up with any of the injuries will be compensated at taxpayer expense for the rest of their life. They deserve the pay since they were forced initially to take emergency use only shots.

Great juxtaposition. Right now, this headline is directly below the daily cartoon with a liberal wackjob broad holding a sign "My body, my choice". Not so much, apparently, but they can't have it both ways. Someday, sanity better rule again, or we are all doomed.

The graduates did the time and the work. There is no reason, not even the vaccination, why they can’t graduate. Sc rew the government, military, & the administration.

They are safer to leave, and just refuse to pay back the money, while they sue. They cannot be forced to take an experimental vaccine, unapproved, which has shown itself to be very dangerous and of NO VALUE whatsoever in preventing disease.

This is just so passe. Thought this was all in the past and we had moved on from this lunacy. Guess more law suits have to follow. One can't change the rules mid way. The students did the work and deserve to graduate. Those in power that say they can't are throwing a huge temper tantrum because they didn't get their way.

In my county of 600,000+, a suburb of Kansas City, there is ONE reported Wuhan flu death in the last 30 days. That one was three weeks ago. This is OVER. Leave them alone. Beside, if these shots ever worked it was only against the original Chinese strain from Wuhan. These shots are entirely ineffective against the current Omicron strain, I know four people who recently got the virus, two vaccinated, two unvaccinated, none seriously ill, all have recovered.

The CNO should look into commissioning them as ensigns, give them orders to Pensacola for basic flight training, and they can ultimately fly F-35's for the Navy instead of the Air Force. Four ensigns at zero cost - quite a bargain.

OT, but remember the passenger who landed a small airplane with no previous experience? Pilot was vaxxed and had an episode. Not sure if he was dead or not. In the future I'm sure these four will be so thankful they didn't follow the sheeple. They should give them extra credit for being smarter than the average guy.

In what some are calling an epic 'Freudian slip,' former President George W. Bush accidentally called the invasion of Iraq 'wholly unjustified and brutal' while speaking about Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Bush made the embarrassing gaffe in a speech at his presidential center in Dallas, where he spoke about the importance of fair elections and slammed Russia's autocratic system. 'The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq,' Bush said, before shaking his head and correcting himself. 'I mean, of Ukraine.' As the audience fell into awkward silence, Bush muttered

Brussels—The European Union’s executive arm moved Wednesday to jump-start plans for the 27-nation bloc to abandon Russian energy amid the Kremlin’s war in Ukraine, proposing a nearly 300 billion-euro ($315 billion) package that includes more efficient use of fuels and faster rollout of renewable power. The European Commission’s investment initiative is meant to help the 27 EU countries start weaning themselves off Russian fossil fuels this year. The goal is to deprive Russia, the EU’s main supplier of oil, natural gas and coal, of tens of billions in revenue and strengthen EU climate policies. “We are taking our ambition to yet another level

American families are shelling out what amounts to $5,000 per year to put gas in their cars—a painful increase from $2,800 just a year ago, according to a new report. The new study by Yardeni Research shows the ever-increasing financial burden borne by US households in recent months as the price of fuel has reached record levels. In March, the annual rate of gasoline spending by US households was at $3,800, according to the study. “No wonder that the Consumer Sentiment Index is so depressed. The wonder is that retail sales have been so surprisingly strong during April and May,” Yardeni said in a note.

President Biden on Wednesday committed to working with Finland and Sweden to “remain vigilant against any threats to our shared security” and “deter and confront aggression” while the two Nordic countries’ applications to join the NATO military alliance are under review. Analysts say the two countries, which have long resisted formal ties to NATO, are in a particularly vulnerable position as their applications for alliance membership are in the pipeline. Russian President Vladimir Putin has bitterly criticized past expansions by NATO into eastern Europe and has talked of unspecified retaliation against Helsinki and Stockholm for their decision to join the 30-nation transatlantic alliance.

The company at the center of a baby formula crisis could face criminal charges, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday, as Democrats considered new government controls over the baby formula industry. “I think there might be a need for indictment,” said Mrs. Pelosi, who has realigned the House agenda to address a baby formula shortage. Democrats are also considering legislation that would give the federal government more control over the supply and distribution of formula, particularly when shortages arise. The plan would require formula companies to report inventory to the Food and Drug Administration, which could then move supplies from one state to another to fill empty shelves.

White House – “[T]he authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act to require performance of contracts or orders … is delegated to the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to all health resources, including the ingredients necessary to manufacture infant formula.”
