covid vaccine & kids
Freedom. Personal liberty. That's generally my focus.
When it comes to vaccines & healthcare, I believe freedom and TRUE informed consent should be the priority.
Personally, my family and I are avoiding the Covid jab like the plague. There's no way in the world I'd get one now and I'd fight like the mama bear I am before I allowed my kids to get one.
Maybe you feel differently, and that's ok.
However, it is NOT ok for this jab or ANY mRNA jab or ANY medical therapy or procedure to be REQUIRED of our kids in order for them to attend school. Period. This is a hill I'll die on.
Missouri's process regarding required vaccines
You may not know this, but it is only a small committee of bureaucrats that decide when a new vaccine gets added to the school requirement list in Missouri. There is no legislative oversight on that process.
The addition of a vaccine would probably go completely unnoticed until you got a call from the school nurse.
Frankly, I hate this process and would love to see the legislature put the burden back on the legislative process so that the public would have an opportunity to weigh in. But that's not happening anytime soon as far as I can tell.
rep. bill hardwick working for our kids
Representative Bill Hardwick is Chair of the Emerging Issues Committee in the Missouri House of Representatives. Today, he is hearing a group of bills regarding vaccines.
Several of them are specific to Covid, one is concerning employer liability, but his primary concern is protecting our school kids. I applaud him for that!
Rep Hardwick and I agree that our school kids should NOT be required to take the Covid vaccine or ANY mRNA vaccine or other form of gene therapy in order to attend school. I'm thrilled he has sponsored a bill to address this and he's conducting a hearing today where his bill along with several others will be heard.
I hope you'll wholeheartedly support his bill and help us create a wave of grassroots voices across the House that would move them to action.
The lobbyists from the pharmaceutical industry and Chamber of Commerce will be working against us. The speaks volumes, doesn't it? The Chamber of COMMERCE. Why are they weighing in?? That's easy, right?
This is all about the flow of MONEY. Not our kids. I won't go down that rabbit trail, but make no mistake about it. They don't care about the health of your children.
There is one issue I have with HB 700, which has nothing to do with our kids, but with employee exemptions regarding mRNA vaccines or gene therapy. I love the intent of the bill in allowing exemptions for employees, including hospitals and universities. However, there is a term, "undue hardship" that is not defined clearly in the bill.
This section of the bill requires hospitals and employers who are public entities grant exemptions for religious, non-theistic moral beliefs, and for medical reasons UNLESS the employer suffers from an "undue hardship."
I don't prefer this phrase to be in the bill because it does allow a possible loophole for an employer to refuse an exemption request. However, our kids need to be protected and grownups have choices. IF an employer refused the exemption, there would need to be a lawsuit filed and the results of that suit would be crucial to how things move forward.
Likely, some employees would lose their jobs or be forced to be jabbed, because how many people do you know who are willing to sue their employer? It's not going to go well for them even if they win.
I would prefer this section be completely removed and these two issues on separate bills and without the "undue hardship" language. But still, I'm thrilled to protect our kids and I believe they are the priority.
So... is this tiny bit of dog poop in the brownie worth eating? For my kids... maybe it is.
Representative Boggs does have a stand alone bill on employer liability that we can support or even Rep Hardwick could separate his bill into two.
In an ideal world, I'd love to see Representative Hardwick's bill passed without the employer liability and then a liability bill without the undue hardship in it.

rep pollock's school vaccine bill - HB 2009
Representative Suzie Pollock's school vaccine bill is one of my favorites this session. Here's why.
If you agree and you'd like to help get this bill across the finish line, please let me know by registering here. I'll be in touch soon with specific action items and keep you updated as to what's happening.
Do you want more vaccines added to the school requirement list?
Not only this experimental Covid shot, but whatever else might be coming down the pipe?
Currently, in the State of Missouri, required vaccinations can be added to our school requirement list by direction from the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) in coordination with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). No elected official is involved. Parents won't even know until after it too late.
I don't know about you, but in the current climate of Covid craziness and unknown future - that doesn't sit well with me. This bill would change the statute to require all new additions of vaccines to the school requirement list be approved by Missouri legislature. That means the PEOPLE and our elected officials would have a voice in the process and the power would be removed from the overreaching bureaucrats at DHSS.
do you want mo statutes aligned with the constitution?
This bill brings statute into alignment with the Missouri Constitution by requiring public schools to acknowledge religious AND conscientious exemptions at the written request of the parent. No more trips to the county health department to obtain a yellow card with a seal on cardstock. A simple letter will do.
This bill also...
- Requires schools to recognize acquired immunity
- Requires DHSS to educate parents on what their rights actually are regarding exemptions
- Provides choice for private and parochial schools
- Gives college students living off campus a choice regarding the meningococcal vaccine
- Protects parents rights to choose if they vaccinate without fear of abuse or neglect charges or investigations
- Protects physicians from licensing concerns over granting medical exemptions
Because this bill is especially important, we want to communicate with supporters directly to ensure you don't miss any opportunity to help. Please sign up for email notifications!
let the senators know!
If the senators don't know what we want, its OUR FAULT for not telling them.
Between today and the time the final vote comes in, we need to be reaching out to every Republican senator who is not already committed to vote no.
Priority 1. Email - email is sunshineable.
Priority 2. Call - Fill up the answering machines.
what do i say?
Keep it simple and straight forward. It's super easy. Here's an example.
Hello Senator. My name is Jodi and I live in ______ county. I'm calling today to express my opposition to the confirmation of Donald Kauerauf. He has been on the team in Illinois that implemented vaccine passports, a plethora of covid lockdown and mandate measures, he's in opposition to Judge Green's ruling regarding our constitutional rights and he's a proponent of test-to-stay in K-12 schools. I do NOT want Missouri to be anything like Illinois! Please vote no at every opportunity.
who do i call and email?
All the Republican senators listed in the directory linked below. Phone numbers are included in the directory. Their email address follow this template: email@example.com
I'll give you even more details about Kauerauf (DK), but the immediate issue you need to realize is..
this could be the turning point for missouri.
If DK gets into this position, Missouri is most likely going to follow closely in the footsteps of Illinois.
You can look forward to.. MORE MANDATES, VACCINE PASSPORTS, more shots being added to our kid's school requirement list, testing kids to stay in school, and the list goes on!
what can we do?
The simple answer...pray & show up!
Be the representation of THE PEOPLE of Missouri by showing up at the Senate hearing. Here are all the details. There's a lot going on and we understand it's last minute.
You are free to participate in part or all of these activities. We are trusting God is going to lead you to the battle He's asking you to fight - whether you battle in prayer or in protest or both!
Please do share all this information with those you know who would be in opposition to this confirmation.
IMPORTANT: Things like scheduling can change very suddenly with issues like this. Please sign up for text updates if you'd like to be notified of any changes or updates. We don't want you to drive all the way and rearrange your day if Senator Schatz would get a wild hair and reschedule.

who is kauerauf?
Donald Kauerauf is Governor Parson's pick for Director of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. And it's a HORRIBLE choice!
Mr. Kauerauf (pronounced kuh-ruff and referred to hereafter as DK) hails from the state of Illinois, where tyranny & corruption reign! Here's a few bullet points you might find on his resume.
- 30 years in public health
- Illinois Terrorism Task Force chairman throughout Covid crisis
- Deputy to the Illinois Governor's Homeland Security Advisor
- Policy Advisor to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Director
- Asst. Director of Illinois Dept of Public Health, 2016-2018
So, DK has a lot of experience advising and assisting high officials in Illinois.
Red Flag #1 - Illinois. That should be enough to cause some pause. Illinois. The home of crime & corruption. Gun restrictions. Crazy taxes. And some of the worst, most restrictive Covid lockdown measures in the nation. I've never heard one Missourian say they really wished they lived in a place like Illinois!
DK is married to Judy who, like Anthony Fauci's wife, is also involved in public health. Judy is the Communicable Disease Section Chief at the Illinois Department of Health.
What has Judy has been up to these last several months? I'm so glad you asked!
She's been busy with a company called Shield T3 setting up a pilot program at the University of Illinois. Shield T3 has served those college students by helping them implement a "Do-To-Do" program. This is behavioral training where you are required to DO something in order to be allowed TO DO something else.
Here's one example: Be vaccinated or test twice a week in order to GET TO... go to the school library, workout at the school gym, go to the ballgame, eat in the restaurant, go to class, etc etc.
shield t3 & their vaccine passport information
This Shield T3 Powerpoint Presentation gives you all the scoop about how this system worked for the University of Illinois and what their plans are moving forward. The University was a pilot program. Biden wants it rolled out across the nation.
Shield T3 provides a phone app where all your health information is downloaded, it provides nearly instant tracing services (let's call it TRACKING), and it literally gives you access or denies access to what most would call daily activities.
The real name for this is VACCINE PASSPORT.
Red Flag #2. DK's wife is highly connected with public health and has worked to implement vaccine passports in IL colleges as well as "Test to Stay" programs in K-12 districts across the state of Illinois.
In fact, DK has already stated that he is IN FAVOR of these types of programs here in Missouri!
Red Flag #3 - The timeline. There's more, but here's a critical snippet.
- June 25, 2021. Shield incorporates in Missouri and prepares to do business.
- July 2021. Governor Parson appoints DK to Director of DHSS
This is really the tip of the iceberg. For now, I'm leaving you with a few links to some investigating for yourself.
The next blog article will give you details about what you can do to try to prevent this man from taking a permanent place in our public health system.
