(Natural News) Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has said that President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates are divisive and harden the resistance of some people to get vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). The Republican governor on Sunday, Sept, 12, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he believes the president’s vaccination mandates will hurt nationwide efforts to vaccinate Americans instead of supporting them.
On Thursday, Sept. 9, Biden issued several executive orders requiring all federal employees and the majority of health care workers to get a COVID-19 vaccine. A White House plan also stated that Biden would direct the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to mandate that businesses with 100 or more employees either mandate COVID-19 vaccines, require weekly COVID-19 testing or be fined.
According to Hutchinson, the federal requirements are “counterproductive.”
“We talked about the fact that we’ve historically had vaccination requirements in schools. But those have always come at the state level, never at the national level,” Hutchinson said.
“And so this is an unprecedented assumption of federal mandate authority that really disrupts and divides the country. It divides our partnership between the federal government and the states. And it increases the division in terms of vaccination when we should all be together trying to increase the vaccination uptake.”
Biden’s vaccine mandates to affect 80 million Americans
The mandates are expected to impact approximately 80 million Americans. (Related: “King” Biden blames “unvaccinated” Americans for COVID vaccine mandate as red states line up around the block to sue.)
Hutchinson said he believes the decision to mandate vaccines for employees should be decided by individual businesses.
“I’m not aware of any governor from any state that said we want to mandate businesses to require vaccination,” he said. “I support businesses being able to require vaccination, but it’s their own independent choice for their workplace.”
COVID-19 vaccines have already been mandated by several federal agencies, including the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Pentagon.
Governors disagree with Biden’s vaccine mandates
Hutchinson was among the 19 governors who issued statements on Friday, Sept. 10, disagreeing with the Biden administration’s move. Several of them vowed to defy it.
“I fully support continued efforts to increase vaccination rates across our nation, but the federal government mandates on private businesses are not the right answer,” Hutchinson, chair of the National Governors Association, said in a statement.
“I have been consistent in freedom of businesses to require their employees to be vaccinated, and I have opposed the government from saying businesses cannot exercise that freedom. The same principle should protect the private sector from government overreach that requires them to vaccinate all employees.”
Gov. Henry McMaster of South Carolina, a staunch conservative, took to Twitter to decry Biden’s move. “Rest assured, we will fight them to the gates of hell to protect the liberty and livelihood of every South Carolinian,” he wrote.
Before Biden was even finished with his Thursday’s address, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp already tweeted his response. “I will pursue every legal option available to the state of Georgia to stop this blatantly unlawful overreach by the Biden administration,” he wrote.
Biden administration hurts private businesses
One of Biden’s mandates negated the executive order signed by Kemp on Aug. 19, which prohibits local governments from ordering businesses to adopt vaccine mandates. The executive order bars local officials from mandating the order, but allows private businesses to require vaccines if they want to.
“Local governments will not be able to force businesses to be the city’s vaccine police,” Kemp said at the time. He then tweeted that his executive order will ensure that businesses in Georgia “can’t be punished by local governments for trying to make a living, pay their employees and save their livelihoods.”
Unfortunately, the Biden administration can.
Biden may be breaking several laws with vaccine mandates
Biden might be breaking several laws with his vaccine mandates. Most, if not all, of the COVID-19 vaccines available are under emergency use authorization (EUA). In other words, they are experimental.
Both the Nuremberg Code and federal regulations state that no one can force a human being to participate in the experiment. Under U.S. laws, it is unlawful to deny someone a job or an education because they refuse to be an experimental subject. Potential recipients have an absolute right to refuse experimental vaccines.
That point isn’t lost on some companies. (Related: Employers are uniting and preparing lawsuits against Biden’s seditious vaccine and testing mandates.)
The Consumer Brands Association wrote a letter to Biden on Monday that included a “small sampling” of the questions that its members have asked the organization. The trade group represents consumer packaged goods companies, including industry giants like Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble and General Mills, as well as retailers Amazon, Albertsons and Target.
The trade group’s questions for Biden include: “Will the requirements only apply to vaccines that are fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA]?”
Pfizer’s Comirnaty is the only COVID-19 vaccine granted full approval by the FDA. However, Dr. David Martin warned the public that the the agency has approved a vaccine that does not exist.
“The approval is for future production of COVID vaccine,” he said during his appearance on “Brighteon Conversations” with Health Ranger Mike Adams.
“When members of the mainstream suggest that this approval has suddenly put what is sitting in freezers around the world into an approved status, that’s actually not true. There are still manufacturing guidelines that were not required for the EUA that would be required for a full-approved product.”
Martin also related that some vital information had been redacted in the approval letter that Pfizer had, as well as in its official publication from the FDA.
“The section of where it can be manufactured and when it can be manufactured is redacted, which is unusual given the fact that an approval letter is supposed to be a public announcement that makes these things visible,” Martin said.
