(Rallying Patriots) – The vaccine mandates issued by Joe Biden and being enforced by his fraudulent regime are totally illegal, unconstitutional, and unethical. Fortunately, not everyone is laying down and complying.
The newly appointed head of the Oklahoma National Guard is taking a stand in a big way.
Army Brig. Gen. Thomas Mancino is putting his foot down in defiance of the Pentagon’s COVID-19 vaccine orders for all members of the armed forces.
In a Thursday memo, Mancino wrote, “No Oklahoma Guardsman will be required to take the COVID-19 Vaccine.”

The memo directly contradicts the Defense Department’s directive that the “total force,” including the National Guard, must be vaccinated against the not-so deadly Chinese coronavirus.
Mancino, who was appointed last Wednesday to replace former Adjutant General Michael Thompson, wrote in the memo that “no negative administrative or legal action will be taken” against any Oklahoma guard members that choose not to get vaccinated.
Mancino pointed out in the memo that it’s Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, not Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who has the final say. The Gov. is the organization’s “lawful Commander in Chief” when not under federal orders. Earlier this month, Gov. Stitt requested that Austin suspend the vaccine mandate for members of the Oklahoma National Guard.
“It is irresponsible for the federal government to place mandatory vaccine obligations on Oklahoma national guardsmen which could potentially limit the number of individuals that I can call upon to assist the state during an emergency,” Stitt wrote in a Nov. 1 letter to Austin.
“This mandate violates the personal freedoms of many Oklahomans, as it asks them to potentially sacrifice their personal beliefs in order to not lose their jobs,” Stitt wrote. “All of our national guardsmen take this calling very seriously. These are patriotic citizens who are willing to put their lives on the line to protect others in our communities during times of greatest need.”
According to an official with the Oklahoma National Guard, Austin has yet to respond to Stitt or Mancino’s declaration that the mandate will not be enforced in Oklahoma.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told the Military Times that the Pentagon is aware of the memo and the letter from Stitt and “will respond to the governor appropriately.”
Good for the Governor and the Oklahoma National Guard Adjutant General for standing up for the rights and freedoms of Americans in their state. It’s absolutely mind-blowing how more governors and military leaders are not standing up and fighting against this tyranny.
The armed forces were established to protect freedom and yet our own federal government is attempting to restrict freedom in the most unprecedented of ways and the majority of the armed forces are either complying or sitting idly by.
Members of the military take an oath to defend America from enemies both foreign and domestic. Now is the time to make good on that promise.
The Biden regime is not only illegal but they are engaging in medical tyranny that must be stopped.
