November 15, 2021 (Falls Church, VA) There is good news on the Health Freedom front this week. The US Court of Appeals of the 5th Circuit supported the Constitution and put a halt to the the implementation of the Corporate Mandate. A link is provided below. The court after detailing extensively why the lawsuits against the mandate were likely to prevail concluded with the following:
“…the petitioners’ motion for a stay pending review is GRANTED. Enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s “COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing; Emergency Temporary Standard remains STAYED pending adequate judicial review of the petitioners’ underlying motions for a permanent injunction.
In addition, IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that OSHA take no steps to implement or enforce the Mandate until further court order.”

There are many who have already been forced into vaccinating against their will; the military mandate continues to be a matter up for consideration, with at least one governor saying he will not enforce it for the National Guard. We continue to educate on the matter and to advocate for the protection of the inalienable human right of health freedom of health care decisions.

Meanwhile in Australia: Greater Katherine region to go into snap lockdown from 6pm
The greater Katherine region will go into lockdown from 6pm local time tonight, Northern Territory chief minister Michael Gunner said.
Overnight, the following was announced: We are declaring a 72-hour lockdown for greater Katherine. This means you are only allowed to leave home for one of the five reasons; you have done this before, you have smashed it before, I know you will smash it again.
The five reasons are: medical treatment, including getting a Covid test and getting vaccinated; for essential goods and services like groceries and medicines; for work that is considered essential and can’t be done at home; for one hour of exercise a day with one person you live with and no further than five kilometres from your home; and to provide care to a family member, including separated families.
Changes to South Australia quarantine and border restrictions
Earlier today, South Australian premier Steven Marshall outlined changes to quarantine and border restrictions from next week. In good news for separated families and state residents stuck outside, fully vaccinated people from New South Wales, Victoria and the ACT will be able to cross into the state from November 23.
And state residents will be able to leave the state without having to quarantine on the way back. We know this is going to be a huge relief for families, for businesses,” Marshall said. “Those state borders have been extraordinarily punishing.”
Germany Considering a Partial Mandate
