(DCWatchDog.com) Happening Now: In what can only be described as a stunning development (watch the video below), New York Governor Kathy Hochul – who replaced disgraced Governor Andrew Cuomo – has ordered the National Guard to enter hospitals and take over the duties of trained healthcare workers who have refused to accept the COVID-19 vaccine.
Is this the militarization of American civilian hospitals? Indeed, some will believe that is the case, and it’s difficult to argue otherwise.
In a last-minute press conference yesterday (watch the full video below), Governor Hochul – a Democrat – stated:
“And, we’ll be nation-leading with our mandate which strikes at midnight tonight when everyone is expected in a hospital in the state of New York, or a healthcare facility, to have been vaccinated…I will be signing an executive order to give me the emergency powers necessary to address the shortages where they occur that’s going to allow me to deploy the National Guard who are medically trained. Deploy people who’ve been retired, who may have had a license lapse, bring in people from elsewhere. That is not my first position, though, my friends. My desire is to have the people who’ve been out there continue to work in their jobs, work in them safely. And, to all the other healthcare workers who are vaccinated, they also deserve to know that the people they’re working with will not get them sick.”
