How’s That Voting Working Out For You? Youngkin won’t try to block local mask, vaccine mandates like other Republican governors

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC)- Virginians can expect a shift in vaccine and mask mandates once Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin is sworn in.

After his inaugural ceremony on Jan. 15, Youngkin said he will not mandate masks and vaccines but–unlike some Republican governors–he will not attempt to block localities from implementing their own requirements. 

“Localities are going to have to make decisions the way the law works and that is going to be up to individual decisions but, again, from the governor’s office, you won’t see mandates from me,” Youngkin clarified in a one-on-one interview over the weekend.

Those comments come a few days after a federal judge ruled that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting localities from requiring masks in schools violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by putting students with underlying conditions at risk and hindering their access to in-person instruction. The judge is now barring that order from being enforced. 

Despite being described as an “anti-vaxxer” by critics on the campaign trail, Youngkin called himself a “staunch supporter” of the vaccine.

“My family has gotten it. I’ve gotten it. I think it’s the best way for people to protect themselves,” Youngkin said.

Nope! Not good enough! We are finished with verbal promises. This guy is speaking out of two sides of his mouth.

Well I voted him in. Thought he sounded too good to be true. Buyer’s remorse for me. He sounds like a rino. I also read where the dirty books that were taken out of elementary school libraries are back. They reversed their decision the feckless a-holes.

It’s a hard lesson to learn but at least you did. NONE OF THE POLITICIANS ARE WORKING FOR YOU (not even Trump). They are in it for the money/power/etc. Remember taxation without representation? That is where we are today.

We live under a totalitarian kleptocracy.

kleptocracy
klĕp-tŏk′rə-sē
noun
A government characterized by rampant greed and corruption.
A corrupt and dishonest government characterised by greed.

1. Vanguard made trillions off of us since 1913
2. We no longer sit back.
3. Any political candidate who makes a verbal promise signs on the dotted line “to the promise they profess” when and if they get in office.
4. A law must be made about verbal promises when running for office.
5. We cannot have a new election until the last one is corrected!
6. We must push Congress to RECALL Joe Biden ASAP!

Hello, Jane. Item #3 -- they lie in writing, with signatures, too. It won’t matter until the guv system is toally gutted and a new one -- not what the nwo and globalists purport -- that operates out of the heart, is in place. IF that happens, it will be a very, very, very L O N G time. Sadly. Honesty and integrity are, for the most part, gone.

I’m sorry you are still under the delusion that politicians care about you and tell the truth. Maybe you are new to politics? We are NOT free. We are NOT represented in government. Have you forgotten what they did on 11/3/2020?

2. We comply and do nothing else. See: lockdowns, “vaccine” mandates, gun laws, loss of freedoms from things like the Patriot Act and Covid, etc.
3. They swear on a bible too. THEY LIE.
4. See #3
5. You can hold your breath and stamp your feet. They will continue with the sElections and install their puppets (see Virginia)
6. See 3, 4 & 5. It will never happen. They do not care what you think. We live under a kleptocracy. Please read the Georgia Guidestones and watch the Carlin video to understand the real world and what is happening.

As I say, we all do the best we can with what we know at any given time. Be kind to yourself. And look, see with clarity …not trust. Trust can deceive. Take good care.

I voted for him too. May be the lesser of two evils, but we already had four years of McCaulife (or Mc Awful, as we called him at the time).
There is already a writing campaign ongoing to tell him what we expect. I just hope he is teachable. If not, I’ve always wondered what it would be like to live in Idaho.

So keep retreating until we are all in one state and surrounded? We shouldn’t fix the issue?

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a change is called insanity.

There is only one way to restore our Republic and it is not the vote.

Youngkin was the co-CEO of Carlyle Group. He is an associate of globalist George W. Bush. You can’t vote your way out of this. And pretty soon, you won’t be able to shoot your way out of this.
