Florida Senate Bill 2006, passed by the Florida legislature and signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis on May 3rd of this year, famously banned vaccine passports statewide in a much-touted triumph of the state government over its own power.
According to a press release from the governor’s office, DeSantis is quoted as saying on the day of the bill signing in St. Petersburg: “In Florida, your personal choice regarding vaccinations will be protected and no business or government entity will be able to deny you services based on your decision.”
But is that really true? Characterizing the legislature and governor’s portrayal of the vaunted bill as a vaccine passport ban (and subsequent ubiquitous media commentary universally accepting as true this supposed reality thus elevating and legitimizing the claim) as simply misleading would be almost as deceptive as the bill is itself: the legislation represent an outright bait and switch on the reliably conservative population, combined with incessant, widespread deception masking the bill’s actual utilization.
SB 2006, by its own wording, provides that the state “may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat” coronavirus-positive Florida residents against their will. The clearly broad-ranging loophole is well-hidden by legislators, appearing at the very bottom of the 10,000-word document on line 1111 in a truly chilling twist of fate.
A lengthy quotation from the Florida Senate’s official “.gov” website is necessary to fully substantiate the secret mandatory vaccine injection clause inserted into the legislation. Specifically, the bill’s amendment to Section 315 of Chapter 381 of Florida’s ‘Public Health’ statute, Title XXIX, in part reads:
The State Health Officer, upon declaration of a public health emergency, may take actions that are necessary to protect the public health. Such actions include, but are not limited to:
4. Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to public health. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to be examined, tested, vaccinated, or treated for reasons of health, religion, or conscience may be subjected to isolation or quarantine.
a. Examination, testing, vaccination, or treatment may be performed by any qualified person authorized by the State Health Officer.
b. If the individual poses a danger to the public health, the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation or quarantine. If there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.
Upon review of the wording of the document it is revealed that not only through this legislation do the Florida legislature and Governor DeSantis empower Florida’s surgeon general (referred to as “the State Health Officer”) Scott Rivkees with the uncontestable absolute ability to inject resisting Florida residents with a coronavirus vaccine, they also confer Rivkees the unique total power to isolate in solitary confinement any individual at will, even those who are physically unable to withstand such treatment and those who hold religious objections to the sometimes-deadly procedure. The twisted isolation operation is defined in the bill as: “the separation of an individual who is reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease from individuals who are not infected, to prevent the possible spread of the disease.”
When the head of a Florida medical nonprofit by the name of R. Shawn McBride raised concerns about the shocking and monumental deception perpetrated by all aspects of the Florida government and the national media on the American people, the Tallahassee Democrat, a local paper, reported Governor DeSantis’s office giving the cowardly response: “Mr. McBride is entitled to express his legal opinions to whomever he chooses.”
It is made painfully obvious that the buried injection clause eliminating the supposed right of Floridians to decide whether and when to take the coronavirus vaccine is essential to those crafting the legislation as a Florida House bill which effectively amends SB 2006 died in committee just three days before the landmark legislation was signed into law by DeSantis. House Bill 6003, filed by Rep. Anthony Sabatini, expressly “removes authority of State Health Officer to order vaccinations upon declaration of public health emergency,” though was quickly shut down by the Pandemics & Public Emergencies Committee and never voted upon.
Originally filed last November at the height of coronavirus passport speculations, the unpopular and subsequently killed HB 6003 sought to change the longstanding wording of Section 315 to conform to DeSantis’s promise that the state will not require mandatory vaccinations, removing its explicit legal authority. Amid the 2002 SARS outbreak, the statute was amended to allow for mass forced vaccinations of the Florida population at the sole discretion of the state, a provision which has endured and remains today. In 2001, Section 315 merely contained general guidelines laying out notification and consultation between state and local governments in the context of public health emergencies.
The importance in immediately removing this arcane clause which stands in direct contradiction to the current governor’s beliefs and policies is to deter future governors from abusing the powerful section to oppress Florida residents under the guise of public safety once DeSantis is gubernatorially defeated or seeks higher office — the latter of which appears increasingly forthcoming. Though it is now brutally clear the objective of the administrators of the Florida bureaucracy is not to effect actual change related to large scale forced vaccination, but to simply benevolently decide not to wield the awesome, far-reaching biological powers on the public.
A coordinated undertaking involving members of the Florida government — from the House to the Senate to the governor’s mansion — and those in national media is thus exposed through the extreme bombast and misdirection from those tasked with crafting and passing the bill and the total abdication of basic journalistic responsibility from those tasked with reporting on the legislation, resulting in what appears more likely to be an extensive cover up operation executed by the most powerful elements of society rather than simple ignorance by those intimately involved.
