The Constitution: No longer defended at West Point.
Despite having had COVID so that she has natural immunity and is better protected from getting it again as well as passing on to others, West Point cadet Hannah MacDonald was forced out of the Army because of its oppressive discriminatory policies against those who refuse to get COVID shots.
The litany of wrongs MacDonald was forced to undergo violated numerous laws, all of which our modern McCarthyites care little about.
- The Army revealed her medical history to all, in violation of HPPA requirements, with one officer nonchalantly stating “HIPAA isn’t the be-all, end-all.”
- The mandates forcing the COVID shots on her violated the Nuremberg Code, a signed treaty of the U.S. and the law of the land. When she noted this, she “was told this small legal distinction didn’t matter.”
- The Army treated her and others who would not get the shots as second class citizens, discriminating against them in numerous ways while re-establishing the worst forms of segregation against them, all in violation of numerous civil rights legislation.
This quote from MacDonald’s story at the link best illustrates the Army’s insane policy:
I was subjected to this treatment while knowing that some of my fellow cadets had an adverse reaction to the vaccine, including life-changing heart problems. One of these adverse reactions resulting in heart issues happened on the Crew team. That same team kicked my best friend off for being unvaccinated, with her coach saying it “went against [her] ethics” to coach an unvaccinated cadet.
Around the same time, guidance was pushed down that we could not even attend our religious clubs. While this guidance then changed shortly after, no one questioned the unethical nonsense of telling cadets they could sit shoulder to shoulder in a classroom to study calculus, but it was too much of a “health threat” to have us in the same classroom six hours later discussing the one thing that gave us hope and comfort.
The coercion grew worse when the official vaccine mandate paperwork came down on Sept. 27, 2021. The other unvaccinated cadets and I were escorted to an auditorium at 5:45 a.m. We were not allowed to leave without signing a document acknowledging that we were disobeying direct orders.
We had a choice to either be vaccinated, separate, or apply for a religious or medical exemption. At the meeting, we were denied any legal counsel. There were no judge advocate generals or legal advisers available for us to talk to before signing this document, and I was personally told by a colonel that I could not receive counsel before signing the documents.
Read her entire article at the link. I can’t possibly capture the egregious and unjust COVID policies of the Army, without quoting everything she wrote.
MacDonald is no longer training to be an Army officer. She has left the Army because she:
could no longer stay at an institution that claims to fight for freedom while using people as puppets to convince the public to give up their freedoms for a political show. Title VII of the U.S. Civil Rights Act prohibits religious discrimination, and while I am by no means against vaccines, I am against unjust mandates, vaccine passports, the violation of HIPAA, and the violation of personal rights to bodily autonomy.
Those who replace her will likely be all in agreement with the Army’s illegal, irrational, and hateful policy, which means this military is no longer there to defend American lives and the Constitution, but instead to support the leftist agenda demanding that everyone adhere to its fear-driven COVID policies.
It will not be long before the political bosses in Washington will realize they can wield that weapon against everyone. Be very afraid.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
