Lawsuits Are The Answer

I'm convinced that the right way to fight woke terror and censorship is lawsuits.

Corporations in particular are afraid of lawsuits because they have a lot of money. Sue them first.

But it's also useful to sue the government when they are violating our rights.

A nice suit started by https://www.americasfrontlinedoctors.org/ :

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT Court

AMERICA’S FRONTLINE DOCTORS

PETITION FOR TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

vs.

XAVIER BECERRA, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, AND John & Jane Does I-V; Black & White Partnerships; and ABC Corporations I-V,

Defendants.

Dear Friend,

Today America’s Frontline Doctors filed a petition for a temporary restraining order against the U.S. Secretary of the U.S. Department of HHS, Xavier Becerra.

Here’s why:

Children are not guinea pigs: There is a statistically zero percent chance of young people dying of COVID-19. To promote an investigational product that has no long-term studies and no animal studies, to pressure parents and teens to use an experimental product that has not been fully approved by the FDA breaks all of the rules of medicine and the HHS’ own goal to protect Americans.

The expansion of the Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) for younger children is all risk and no benefit. HHS is ignoring the science and the data.

HHS is betraying its mission to, “enhance the health and well-being of all Americans…and by fostering sound, sustained advances in the sciences underlying medicine, public health, and social services.”

Sadly, millions of parents are being misled by HHS Secretary Becerra and the FDA, and we are calling on the Federal Courts to stop Becerra and compel HHS to suspend the promotion and rush to administer a vaccine that has not been fully tested and approved.

COVID 19 Vaccine Side Effects: We’ve never seen this level of side effects for any vaccine without the FDA taking action. The Rotavirus vaccine was canceled for 15 cases of non-lethal side effects and the Swine Flu vaccine was canceled for 25 deaths. But now, by the CDC’s own data, we are seeing a 12,000 percent increase in deaths with these vaccines and they’re still promoting this to our kids.

Support the Science: Under the age of 20, the survivability rate for COVID-19 is 99.997 percent. More than 4,000 deaths have been tied to the administering of COVID-19 vaccines in the last four months as opposed to 1,500 total in the previous ten years for all vaccines.

This last fact alone should be enough to STOP this dangerous vaccine. But HHS, the FDA and the CDC are ignoring the science and they are putting the lives of our children on the line.

Minnesotans Take Legal Action Over Critical Race Theory
BY TOM OZIMEK July 31, 2021

A law firm has taken legal action on behalf of Minnesotans opposed to critical race theory (CRT) who argue that they’ve become victims of bullying and retaliation for speaking out against what they say is a divisive and discriminatory philosophy.


Lawsuits are the answer.

Why I’m Suing Over My Employer’s Vaccine Mandate
I have natural immunity, so there’s no justification for a coercive violation of my bodily autonomy.

In a few weeks I will begin my 24th year as a law professor at George Mason University. Last year I volunteered to teach in person, even though I’m in my 50s. Teaching law is my job and I owe my students my best. I also knew I could do it safely. During the spring of 2020 I contracted and recovered from Covid-19, which I later confirmed through a positive antibody test. Multiple positive antibody tests have since confirmed that I continue to have a robust level of immune protection.

But now my employer, a state institution, is requiring Covid vaccines. In my case, vaccination is unnecessary and potentially risky. My only other options are to teach remotely or to seek a medical exemption that would require me to wear a mask, remain socially distanced from faculty or students during, say, office hours, and submit to weekly testing.

It would be impossible for me to perform my duties to the best of my ability under such conditions. The administration has threatened those who don’t submit with disciplinary action, including termination of employment. This week the public-interest lawyers at the New Civil Liberties Alliance filed suit on my behalf, challenging the university’s mandatory vaccination requirement for those with naturally acquired immunity. This coercive mandate violates my constitutional right to bodily integrity for no compelling reason.

Clinical studies from Israel, the Cleveland Clinic, England and elsewhere have demonstrated beyond a doubt that natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2 provides robust and durable protection against reinfection comparable to or better than that provided by the most effective vaccines.

About 1/2 the country MIGHT have been vaccinated. You think I go to work and try to convince the 5% that show up that they shouldn't get vaccinated and that this "pandemic" is all bullshit?

I talk to my NEIGHBORS about it..

You want to get an experimental drug with a completely new, and untested technology? I wouldn't recommend it, I'll say this HERE, but I'm not going to say it at work. What I would say at work if a coworker made a point to tell me they were vaccinated would be "Oh? Early adopter then!"

If they are a competent engineer, they will know exactly what I mean by that statement, if they don't, well, maybe they're too gullible to live. Never get the first version of any product.

Vaccine Mandate in Ecuador Province Defeated by Legal Action
BY AUTUMN SPREDEMANN August 25, 2021

A grassroots organization defeated a government-backed COVID-19 vaccine mandate in Ecuador’s Loja Province on Aug 5.

On July 6, the Emergency Operations Committee (EOC), which is a crisis response branch of Ecuador’s state-level government, released a decree mandating COVID-19 vaccines for province residents over 16 years of age by Aug. 9.

The decree, which came as a shock to residents, imposed restrictions on unvaccinated individuals, including entry into government buildings, bill payment locations, banks, restaurants and other areas of daily commerce.

Nick Vasey, the founder of Human Rights Ecuador, spoke to The Epoch Times about the steps his organization took before the mandate went into effect.

“You had to extrapolate the real end result of all this,” Vasey said. “They [EOC] gave the Ecuadorian community zero time to respond to their decree and planned to steamroll the population.”

Human Rights Ecuador is a Loja-based group that promotes medical freedom.

Vasey’s lawyer filed injunction paperwork against the EOC on July 30. The lawyer then scheduled a meeting for Aug. 3 with the Loja Ombudsman’s office. This proved to be a critical step since the provincial ombudsman could override the measure put forward by the EOC. Consequently, the Loja Ombudsman’s office released a statement on Aug. 5 dismissing the vaccine mandate on the grounds of it being “unconstitutional.”

Vasey added, “There was formidable and constitutionally binding human rights opposition to the proposed measure.”

Ecuador’s Constitution guarantees citizens the right of refusal and treats all citizens without distinction of political ideology, socio-economic or cultural condition as equal before the law. Human Rights Ecuador claims on its website that the proposed vaccine mandate is also contrary to the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, which takes precedence over local regulations under Article 425 of Ecuador’s constitution.

On Aug. 5, the Constitutional Court of Ecuador ruled against extending the state of emergency in the provinces of Guayaquil and El Oro, which was originally requested by President Guillermo Lasso’s government. The newly elected President Lasso took office on May 24 of this year and claimed he would vaccinate 9 million people in the first 100 days of his administration. However, without the extended state of emergency, the EOC lacks the administrative power to push COVID-19 vaccines.

Vasey asserted that Loja was just the proving ground for a vaccine mandate program being drafted by different state governments, of which Guayaquil is likely to be the next.

NCLA Represents COVID-19 Survivors in Class-Action Lawsuit Against Mich. State U. Vaccine Mandate
Aug 27, 2021 | COVID-19, Press Releases

Washington, DC (August 27, 2021) – Jeanna Norris is a supervisory Administrative Associate and Fiscal Officer at Michigan State University (MSU). She has naturally-acquired immunity to COVID-19 after recovering from the virus late last year. However, the university has threatened disciplinary action, even termination, if she and other employees do not comply with the school’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy. Ms. Norris is challenging Michigan State’s unconstitutional “COVID Directives” for the Fall 2021 semester. Today, the New Civil Liberties Alliance, a nonpartisan, nonprofit civil rights group, filed a class-action complaint and a preliminary injunction in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan on behalf of Ms. Norris and similarly situated individuals at MSU.

Twitter, Facebook, President Biden, and Surgeon General sued for alleged censorship collusion
The complaint alleges a First Amendment violation. ...

Hart is alleging that his First Amendment free speech rights had been violated when his social media accounts got suspended for posting what is said to be a scientifically-based graphic under the title, “Masking Children is Impractical and Not Backed by Research or Real World Data.”

News outlets like the New York Post – who recall that their own factually correct, and occasionally bombshell stories (like the “Hunter Biden files“) got suppressed by Big Tech – suggest this claim should by now not be particularly contentious, let alone a reason for censorship. ...

Announcing the lawsuit, the Liberty Justice Center had this to say about it:

“Now these dominant social media platforms and the White House are openly collaborating to eliminate social media posts about COVID-19 that the administration finds objectionable, and to cancel or suspend the Facebook and Twitter accounts of people who raise issues about COVID they don’t want the public to see.”

Suit Contends Executive Order #225 Creates Two Classes of Citizens and Particularly Harms Black Americans

NEW YORK CITY, NY – With Mayor Bill de Blasio telling Black Americans in NYC to go to the back of the bus, America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) is championing what was filed today in Brooklyn, New York, what they believe is the Civil Rights case of the 21st Century. AFLDS contends that with a stroke of the pen, de Blasio created two classes of New Yorkers – vaccinated and unvaccinated – violating the Constitution and both New York State and New York City law.

The suit contends that an order that bars most Black Americans from participating in normal City life is racist on its face and that it is illegal as a matter of law to cause a “disparate impact” on Black Americans. Today courageous individuals stood up to oppose Medical Apartheid.

New York employment attorney Sheldon Karasik, who filed the case stated, “De Blasio has stated that his mission is to root out systemic racism across NYC. Yet de Blasio’s order is racist in its entirety. Mayor de Blasio’s recent Executive Order #225 was put into effect without consideration of history. The lessons of Tuskegee need to be brought to light to stop modern racists who continue the practices of Jim Crow.”

Lawsuit accusing tech giants of spying is allowed to proceed
A judge will allow the proceeding.
By Dan Frieth
Posted 9:34 am

These days, this is past the point of being big news, though it is very newsworthy: reports are saying that yet more lawsuits have been filed in the US, alleging that companies like Google, Amazon, and Apple are spying on their users.

Of course they do, cynics will say: that’s how they make money; they “have to” – just look at their business models (although Apple’s PR machine would beg to differ, even if the giant’s actions of late are beginning to speak louder than its words.)

The latest class action lawsuit that just got a go-ahead from a federal judge focuses on Big Tech’s growing ecosystem of “smart speakers” and “virtual assistants” like Apple’s Siri, with plaintiffs alleging that their devices end up listening on their private conversations when they are unaware of this, thanks to “accidental activation” – as well as that this is happening often enough, or “routinely” as they put it, to represent a real threat to their privacy.

Not only that, but the case that US District Judge Jeffrey White greenlit earlier in September basically accuses Apple of being no better than the gargantuan counterparts it is trying to compete with on a promise of privacy. (That would mean not collecting user data and selling it to advertisers, like Google, Amazon, Facebook and others infamously do.)

However, the plaintiffs in the Apple case say that this is precisely what is happening with their private conversations recorded by Siri when they don’t expect the service to be running.

In the legal battles with a focus on listening devices like “smart speakers,” etc, that are currently active in the US, Google and Amazon are not spared either. Reports, including by Reuters, say that a number of filings allege that their devices and apps are recording users’ conversations without their consent, and that Big Tech companies use this material to make money by giving it to advertisers, who can then more precisely target people based on knowledge of their behavior and interests.

To make matters worse, despite a steady stream of reports, lawsuits, and several scandals around these products, their use has seen considerable growth during the pandemic.
