In a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin earlier this month, Gov. Greg Abbott announced his refusal to force the Texas National Guard to obey the federal jab mandate. The governors of numerous other states, including Alaska, Iowa, Mississippi, Nebraska and Wyoming, also did the same.
The first state to take action was Oklahoma. The state's adjutant general, Thomas Mancino, issued an order that no National Guard troop be forced against his will to take the injections.
"The State of Texas will not enforce this latest COVID-19 vaccine mandate against its guardsmen," Abbott wrote in his letter.
"If the federal government keeps threatening to defund the Texas National Guard, I will deploy every legal tool available to me as Governor in defense of these American heroes."
The National Guard ranks at the bottom of the list in terms of active-duty military servicemen's compliance with the Biden edict. In response, the Biden White House is threatening to withhold pay and benefits for all guardsmen who remain unvaccinated.
Should the Biden regime follow through with this threat, the careers of these guardsmen could be jeopardized, including their ability to participate in operations in which state guards are activated for federal service.
Both Abbott and Mancino agree that the Biden regime's mandates threaten to severely damage retention and recruitment within the National Guard. Abbott specifically warned that the mandates will "hollow out" the Texas National Guard.
Many state governors are now arguing that servicemen within their National Guards are exempt from the federal jab mandate because they are under state control. But Biden's cronies disagree and want to retaliate by withholding pay and benefits from non-compliers.
Unfortunately for Oklahoma, a federal judge recently struck down a lawsuit filed by Gov. Kevin Stitt, instead choosing to side with Sec. Austin.
The court essentially decided that "mandatory vaccination against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is necessary to protect the Force and defend the American people."
Judge Stephen Friot's ruling found the injunction, filed on Dec. 2 by Stitt, Oklahoma Attorney General John M. O'Connor, and 16 other anonymous members of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, without merit.
"The vaccine mandate to which the Governor objects is the one – in addition to the nine that already apply to all service members – intended to protect service members from the virus that has, in less than two years, killed more Americans than have been killed in action in all the wars the United States has ever fought," Friot wrote in his ruling.
"The court is required to decide this case on the basis of federal law, not common sense. But either way, the result would be the same."
What this means for the other states that have joined Oklahoma in resisting the jab mandates remains to be seen.
"It's time for anyone with a backbone to stand up and be counted against this tyrannical control system," wrote one commenter at Natural News. "They are trying to kill us all with vaccines and poverty but now they are picking a war that they cannot win if only the men of this country would get their faces out of their damn phones, cut off their man buns, and grow a pair of 'nads."
"Three percent is all we need to make things right again. If not, we will all be slaughtered while Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, the Rothschild family, and the Royals all try to wait out God's wrath in an underground city."
