Army Officer: I Took All the Other Vaccines but I Won’t Get COVID Jab Because ‘Freedom’
Fox NewsA lieutenant colonel who says he will resign from the Army rather than get the COVID-19 vaccine declared on Fox News Wednesday night that while he has taken all the other vaccinations required by the military, he won’t get the coronavirus shot because of “freedom.”In a resignation letter that was shared by his wife on Twitter last week, Lt. Col. Paul Douglas Hague objected to the Pentagon’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination order for all members of the U.S. military. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued the mandate after the Food and Drug Administration fully approved Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine.“First, and foremost, I am incapable of subjecting myself to the unlawful, unethical, immoral and tyrannical order to sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgment,” Hague wrote, adding that he was also resigning due to what he views as “an ideologically Marxist takeover of the United States government at their upper echelons.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Seth Meyers Hits Joe Manchin for Massive Climate Conflict of Interest
NBCWednesday night was “Climate Night” on late-night TV, which found seven hosts across network and cable joining forces, in a sense, to tackle an issue that rarely gets enough attention from the shows given the level at which it is now affecting the lives of Americans every day.Steve Bodow, the former Daily Show showrunner who conceived of the coordinated effort, recently told The New York Times that his message to the hosts was “Please do your show the way that you do your show,” adding, “The shows have different styles and vibes, and that’s how they’ll approach this.”Late Night host Seth Meyers took that directive to heart, delivering a sprawling version of his “A Closer Look” segment on Wednesday that examined not only the problem but also some of the major obstacles standing in the way of a solution.Read more at The Daily Beast.
