When White House officials said Trump would continue his presidential duties from Walter Reed Medical Center, they weren’t kidding.

President Trump signed an executive order Saturday aimed at “saving lives” of those suffering from mental and behavioral health needs, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Daily Caller.

The executive order, issued Monday morning, called for more crisis-intervention services to those in “immediate life-threatening situations” and encouraged increased availability of continuing care after crises, nurture mentorship programs, expanded availability of telehealth and more.

“The pandemic has also exacerbated mental – and behavioral – health conditions as a result of stress from prolonged lockdown orders, lost employment and social isolation, the executive order says.

“Survey data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that during the last week of June, 40.9 percent of Americans struggled with mental-health or substance-abuse issues and 10.7 percent reported seriously considering suicide,” the order continues. “We must enhance the ability of the Federal Government, as well as its State, local and Tribal partners, to appropriately address these ongoing mental – and behavioral – health concerns.

The order specifically establishes a Coronavirus Mental Health Working Group, aiming to facilitate a government response to mental health conditions exacerbated by the pandemic.

This includes issues related to suicide prevention, the order explains.

“The Working Group will be co-chaired by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, or his designee, and the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, or her designee,” the order said.

“The Working Group shall be composed of representatives from the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Education, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Small Business Administration, the the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and such representatives of other executive departments, agencies, and offices as the Co‑Chairs may, from time to time, designate with the concurrence of the head of the department, agency, or office concerned,” the executive order stated.

Black Family Kicked Out of NYC Restaurant Over Vax Pass ‘Now the Kids Can’t Eat’ (VIDEO)

Published

Vax Pass

New Yorkers, due to their liberal policies, are being forced to choose between anti-segregation and vaccination status. As Free Press Fail writes, “We’ve said it a million times: the vaccine passports are racist.”

Now, “in New York City, they’re proving it” adds the outlet. An incident caught on video shows a Black family was kicked out of a restaurant for refusing to show their “vaccine passports.” In the video, the man filming can be heard saying “so you’re refusing to serve us?”

Although audio is low, the restaurant employee says something along the lines of “yes because you don’t have a vaccination card.” The man questions back, “so you’re going to enforce segregation? ‘Cause, we just told you that we’re religiously exempt.”

The restaurant staff member then claims the patrons said they did have vaccination cards, but the customer vehemently refutes the claim stating, “I never told you any of that. I would never tell you that.”

The customer then films around a panorama of inside the restaurant, saying aloud he’s not leaving and says loudly to other patrons, “Everybody in here’s ok with that? Everybody in here’s ok with setting up segregation in society?”

“Everybody’s ok with that? oh, we don’t have our vaccine cards, so now the kids can’t eat. We can’t eat. You guys are ok with that? This is the America you want to live in?”  Someone in that background can be heard yelling back, “yep.”

Tensions rose and the customer became more heated in the roughly five-minute video. “This is America, you need to wake up” the man shouted. Even more evidence of segregation may have presented itself when one woman in the background explains not everyone in the restaurant was asked for their vaccination cards.

Free Press Fail writes the data behind the claims that vaccines are racist:

Now, this is no surprise at all considering the demographics of those who are vaccinated. We KNOW 2/3rds of the vaccinated population is white. We KNOW only 9% of the vaccinated population is black and only 16% is Hispanic.

This kind of dismissiveness is just getting started. Especially when other (white) patrons in these dining areas are cheering on the managers who enforce these totalitarian mandates that treat the unvaccinated as “unclean.”

Comedian Jim Breuer Cancels Shows at Venues ‘Due to Segregation’ of Forced Vaccinations

Jim Breuer

One comedian is standing up to vaccine mandates, and one of the few celebrities brave enough to put his money where his mouth is, and he should be commended. Saturday Night Live alum Jim Breuer took to Facebook live to release a statement that he would not perform at venues demanding patrons receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

In a 22 minute Facebook live, Breuer said “two quick updates on shows that you may think you may be getting tickets to or you already have tickets to: The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey – not doing it.”

“Also the Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, due to the segregation of them forcing people to show up with vaccinations…I am also not doing those shows” added Breuer.

Aware of the monetary repercussions, Breuer stood by his morals. “I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money.”

Breuer continued that he believed getting vaccinated was “a choice” and was not concerned with any opinions of his fans or the public. “If you have anything else to say, I honestly don’t care.”

“Due to, I have to stick to my morals, I have to stick to what I know is right” he added. The comedian also noted his disappointment that patrons were being “forced” and “bribed” before they could attend shows.

While he stated he doesn’t blame venues for enforcing vaccine mandates in some cases, but rather governors and ticketing vendors. He said the venues were being held “hostage.” NBC News reported neither the Wellmont Theater nor the Royal Oak Theater responded to requests for comment Monday.

Breuer, 54, was part of the Saturday Night Live cast from 1995 to 1998 and was known for recurring characters including Goat Boy and celebrity impersonation of Joe Pesci. He was also in the 1998 film “Half Baked” alongside Dave Chappelle.
