LONG BEACH, California (LifeSiteNews) – Thousands protested Joe Biden as he visited California and Idaho on Monday, in the wake of the Biden administration’s new COVID-19 vaccine mandates that seek to force the shot on tens of millions of Americans.
Large crowds could be heard shouting at the presidential motorcade yesterday as it drove to a rally during Biden’s trip to California to stump for embattled Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Footage posted on Twitter shows what appear to be hundreds of protesters lining the streets in Long Beach, loudly booing and cursing at Biden as he drove by. Many demonstrators held signs against COVID vaccine mandates or in support of President Donald Trump.
Local news also reported that hundreds gathered around the campus of Long Beach City College to protest an event with Biden on Monday evening, circling the area in vehicles with recall flags.
“We have a corrupt governor and an even more corrupt president,” said one protester, according to the Long Beach Press Telegram. “We’re here to show that our governor needs to go.”
Biden’s visit to Boise, Idaho that morning was met with similar resistance. Thousands rallied against Biden in Idaho, where he promoted his left-wing economic and climate agendas and met with Republican Gov. Brad Little, who just days ago discussed suing the Biden administration to block the federal vaccination mandates announced last week.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Protests against Biden in both Idaho and California frequently centered around the vaccine mandates, which apply to more than 80 million Americans in the private sector, and Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal that left 13 U.S. soldiers dead.
“He’s acting like a dictator,” said Boise resident Chris Burns. “I’m against everything Biden is for.” “I don’t think anybody should be forced to put something in their body,” another protester said. Others raised concerns about fraud in the 2020 election, one demonstrator saying that Biden “is in there illegally.”
The presidential visit to Idaho yesterday also drew rebukes from conservative leaders. “Joe Biden doesn’t share the same conservative values and principles as Idahoans,” Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin said Monday. “The president is adamantly opposed to our way of life. Through failed policies, divisive speeches, and angry outbursts, he has shown his contempt for a vast majority of Idaho’s citizenry.”
Protests against the Biden regime broke out in New York City earlier this week as well. Groups of protesters shouted expletive-laden chants against Biden in Brooklyn on Monday, amid a larger event pushing back on mandatory vaccination for teachers, Fox News reported.
The demonstrations come as Biden’s support continues to crater, with recent polling showing more than 54% of Americans disapproving of his job performance and around half of the country strongly disapproving.
