Newsom BRIBING Businesses to Force Customers to Take Vaccine

Since government cannot demand you use the vaccine, it can bribe/extort private businesses into allowing only those vaccinated as customers.  Newsom wants to make businesses be the bad actor and blackmail customers.

“The state Department of Public Health last week unveiled little-noticed revisions that allow conferences, live events and performances, stadiums, family entertainment centers and other gatherings to reopen at higher capacity if all guests show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or of full vaccination. Doing so would permit stadiums in the orange tier, for example, to reopen at 67% instead of 33%, and people in the fully vaccinated sections wouldn’t have to physically distance. The new guidelines also allow fully vaccinated out-of-state visitors to attend events that would otherwise be restricted to Californians.

What right does a concert organizer or a basket team have to know anything about my medical history or medicines that I take?  Looks to me like the attorneys will win and the people, once again lose.  This is extortion and Newsom knows it.

Controversy remains

Emily Hoeven, Calmatters,  4/20/21 

California is incentivizing businesses to require customers show proof of vaccination, suggesting that the Golden State is moving toward a “vaccine passport” system despite health officials’ comments to the contrary.

The state Department of Public Health last week unveiled little-noticed revisions that allow conferences, live events and performances, stadiums, family entertainment centers and other gatherings to reopen at higher capacity if all guests show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or of full vaccination. Doing so would permit stadiums in the orange tier, for example, to reopen at 67% instead of 33%, and people in the fully vaccinated sections wouldn’t have to physically distance. The new guidelines also allow fully vaccinated out-of-state visitors to attend events that would otherwise be restricted to Californians.

Yet thorny logistical, ethical and legal questions remain. Citing privacy and civil liberty concerns, Assemblymember Kevin Kiley, a Rocklin Republican, recently introduced a bill that would ban state and local governments, as well as entities that receive state money, from using vaccine passports. Other advocates are concerned such a system could reinforce racial and economic inequities. And the UC and CSU systems appear unlikely to require students get the COVID-19 vaccine — doing so could raise legal issues, as it’s only received emergency use authorization so far.

Experts say the policy around vaccine passports will likely be driven by the market.

The market appears to be heading in that direction. Salesforce, San Francisco’s largest private employer, announced earlier this month that it would require proof of vaccination for the first employees returning to the office. The San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors are also requiring attendees to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result.

  • State Sen. Richard Pan, a Sacramento Democrat: Banning vaccine passports would mean “what we’re basically telling businesses is, ‘Sorry, we’re denying you a piece of information that could allow you to reopen safely.’ Why would we want to stand in their way?”

  1. Yeah, blue-state governments everywhere seem to be using corporations to do their dirty work, and in many areas not just the WuFlu.

    It’s puzzling in this case, though. Somewhere around 99.9xxx% of those infected recover just fine.
    If you have recovered you don’t need to take a vaccine. Kids 20 years and under have an infinitesimal death rate.
    So why the insistence by so many “experts” that everyone should be vaccinated? And what about those who have recovered and have the antibodies: are you going to exclude them from public events?
    You’d think the “experts” would be more humble after all the errors they’ve made over the past year.

    I have noticed spelling, punctuation errors in many of your articles you write. I believe you meant basketball.
    At first, I though it was a typo error and they may be. I would suggest you get a good proof reader. Errors like these, on a regular basis, diminish your professionalism.

  3. Vaccine passports are ignored because people no longer trust government and, “experts” such as John Swartzberg are seen as shills who lie ( think Fauci the fraud). As for pro sports, their done and on line shopping is booming.

  4. If a concert hall is “allowed” to be open at 67% capacity, it still doesn’t mean it will manage to sell 67% of their tickets. Or even 33%. But It will be trying to sell tickets to those the least likely to attend crowded events due to anxiety issues.
