Mat Staver, the chairman of Liberty Counsel Action, wrote in an email on Monday that White House staff let slip that inside their offices, they are weighing the idea of mandating vaccines for interstate travel. This, according to the Associated Press.

“Checkpoints inside America bring us one step closer to Marxism and tyranny,” Staver wrote. “The White House should NEVER have the power to decide what medical procedures you must undergo before you cross a state line.”

Staver said this is about more than COVID and the shots — it is about freedom and control.

“Once lost, freedom is very hard to regain,” he said.

A White House source said the love of freedom was the only reason it has “held off,” noting that President Joe Biden is working to “make life more uncomfortable for the unvaccinated without spurring a backlash in a deeply polarized country.”

According to Staver, deaths after the COVID vaccines now sit at 12,366. There are more than 545,337 reported adverse reactions to the shots.

“To put this number in perspective, if you counted each reactions as just one minute, it would take more than 9,000 hours to count everyone,” he wrote. “And that’s just a tiny fraction of the actual numbers, of which 99 percent of them go unreported.”

Israel released statistics on the plummeting effectiveness of the vaccines.

“For those who got jabbed in January, that jab now only gives a 16 percent reduction in their likelihood of getting COVID,” Staver wrote. “In addition, a new study indicates that getting injected could have zero impact to reduce a person’s likelihood of contracting the upcoming Lambda variant of COVID.”

Data also shows those who receive the shots may develop “vaccine enhanced disease,” meaning they are more susceptible to variants and the variants could be more deadly.
