(LifeSiteNews) — A retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General called for the prosecution of U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) cadets who have been denied commission into the Air Force for refusing COVID shots.
Former Air Force officer Marty France declared not only that the COVID jab-free USAFA cadets should resign, but that they should be prosecuted for “failure to obey” an “order or regulation,” an offense that carries a penalty of as much as two years’ confinement, because they are vocally defying what he calls a “lawful order” to receive an experimental, abortion-tainted “vaccine.”
At the time of France’s guest post published by Daily Kos on May 18, four unnamed cadets had refused the COVID-19 jab. One of the four recently decided to get the shot, and so was approved to graduate and become an Air Force officer. A spokesperson for the academy said another submitted paperwork to resign from the school, leaving two cadets at a “stalemate” and unable to graduate from the Academy.
The cadets who have firmly refused to get jabbed for COVID-19 may be forced to repay tuition costs, which could amount to as much as $200,000 or more.
According to reports, the cadets have requested religious exemptions to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s August 2021 order that all service members, including those in military academies, receive COVID-19 shots.
The three COVID-19 “vaccines” currently available in the U.S. have used aborted fetal cells in their production and or testing, prompting some military service members to seek religious exemptions to the COVID jab mandate. Only a small portion of these requests have been granted: While as many as 20,000 service members have asked for religious exemptions, according to the Associated Press, only 73 religious exemptions have been approved by the Air Force, seven have been approved by the Marine Corps, and eight have been approved by the Army.
A statement released by the Air Force Academy to 11 News noted that “part of” the “religious accommodation process included an interview with a chaplain who determined if the cadet had a sincerely held religious belief. However, even if an individual holds a sincerely held religious belief, the decision authority … must weigh that belief against the compelling government interest of ensuring a safe and ready force … ”
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn wrote to the USAFA on May 17 decrying the denial of commission to the then-four cadets and requesting a reversal of the decision.
“Not only does your decision penalize their religious beliefs and violate their First Amendment Rights, but it also upholds a requirement that is currently subject to numerous unresolved lawsuits,” Lamborn wrote to the AFA superintendent.
Lamborn noted that they will not graduate “despite meeting all requirements they agreed to when they entered the U.S. Air Force Academy four years ago,” and that the decision “stand[s] alone” among the military academies, “as neither West Point nor the U.S. Naval Academy are penalizing cadets or ‘midshipmen for not getting vaccinated, and their seniors are allowed to graduate regardless of their vaccination status.”
In his article, France compared the cadets’ religious objections with the COVID jabs to “fringe beliefs” like that of those who refuse to “get a haircut” or “wear pants,” advising that such a belief means “you don’t belong in the military and you should simply resign and pay any debts owed.”
France described the cadets as “dishonorable” for having refused COVID shots, and characterized them as a danger to the military. He attempted to capture what he believes is at the heart of the issue by introducing his article with a quote by George S. Patton, with his own added twist (in brackets): “If you can’t get them to salute when they should salute and wear the clothes you tell them to wear [and take the FDA-approved vaccines that their leaders mandate], how are you going to get them to die for their country?”
France went so far as to criticize U.S. Air Force Academy leadership for having “tolerated their insubordination and even normalized it by allowing it to fester,” instead of “making examples of” the cadets, who he laments have become “heroes” of what he calls the “radical right that refused masks, stormed the Capitol on January 6 … and continue to spread wild conspiracy theories about COVID, vaccines, and hundreds of other whack-a-doodle ruminations.”
He further claimed that the Academy has “lost its way,” in part because it has granted exemptions and what France terms “public martyr status to the worst among them.”
“In taking any other course but swift and severe military action against the disobedient, the Academy fails in its mission profoundly,” France concluded.
The Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 shots, those most heavily used in the U.S., have been described by several experts, such as mRNA vaccine technology pioneer Dr. Robert Malone, as more accurately termed “gene therapy.” The president of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals Division has also acknowledged that the mRNA COVID-19 shots are indeed “cell and gene therapy,” and said that if the public was asked if they would take such gene therapy before the COVID-19 outbreak, there “probably” would have been “a 95% refusal rate.”
As of May 20, 2022, there have been reported a total of 1,277,978 COVID “vaccine” adverse event reports, and 28,312 reported deaths in the U.S. It remains a concern that these figures are just “the tip of the iceberg,” as a 2010 Harvard-executed study commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealed that reported vaccine injuries to VAERS represent an estimated 1% of actual injuries.
