The Florida Republican is out making headlines again…
This time the possible 2024 Republican Presidential candiadte wants to empanel a criminal grand jury to investigate the effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines….
Nevermind the Trump admin efforts to get people vaccinated….
Nevermind that DeSantis himself got his single shot vaccine shot back in 2021….
Last I looked I thought the Federal Government and scientist’s handle these things….
In America these days….
Florida and Texas are ‘seperate’ from the rest of the country….
They do their ‘own things’…..
Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday asked the Florida Supreme Court to empanel a grand jury to investigate “wrongdoing” linked to the Covid-19 vaccines, including spreading false and misleading claims about the efficacy of the doses.
Most of the medical community, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FDA and Johns Hopkins, have emphasized that the Covid vaccine is safe and effective in preventing the virus and protecting against serious symptoms.
But DeSantis said during a live-streamed round table discussion with Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo that it’s against Florida law to mislead the public, especially when it comes to drug safety. He sought to undermine the efficacy of the Covid vaccine and claimed that vaccine manufacturers such as Moderna have made a fortune on Covid-19 mandates.
“I think people want the truth that I think people want accountability,” DeSantis said. “You need to have a thorough investigation into what’s happened with the shots.”
In a petition to the state Supreme Court asking for the grand jury, the DeSantis administration said that the “pharmaceutical industry has a notorious history of misleading the public for financial gain” and the grand jury will probe “the development, promotion, and distribution of vaccines purported to prevent COVID-19 infection, symptoms, and transmission.”
DeSantis’ announcement was the latest in an ongoing war between his administration and the Biden administration — and the broader medical community — over the pandemic. DeSantis has built a national reputation fighting against Covid-related mandates such as vaccine requirements or schools ordering students to wear masks. The Biden administration did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Along with his surgeon general, DeSantis has rejected vaccines for young children even after the FDA gave approval for the vaccines in kids under 5. Florida was the only state in the nation to not re-order vaccines for children ahead of the FDA’s fast-tracked approval…..
This isn’t the first time DeSantis called for a grand jury to investigate issues in Florida. Over the summer, the governor called on the state high court to empanel a statewide grand jury to investigate illegal immigration. The group released a report earlier this month calling on the Legislature to create new laws against harboring illegal immigrants….
Some Republican’s are NEVER gonna stop weaponising a virus , it treatments and the government efforts to deal with it which include that curse word ‘mandate’s’...
