Advancing Liberty Through Action

BREAKING: We Stood Up For These Heroes

Feb 11, 2022

Yesterday, I argued in a hearing for the class action lawsuit against Joe Biden’s administration on behalf of military members, federal employees and federal civilian contractors. This is one of the most significant legal challenges to these unlawful mandates. On a case this big, Liberty Counsel Action has provided invaluable research and assistance.

The judge in this case just extended his temporary restraining order against the military mandate to February 18 because he needed more time to write his Preliminary Injunction. We will update you on this case as it develops.

Please pray for our team! We have never experienced anything like this in our history. Help us help these desperate people through our Challenge Grant that will DOUBLE the impact of your gift. —Mat

This lawsuit against Biden and the Departments of Defense (DOD) and Homeland Security has the potential to stop all the unlawful shot mandates.

This class action lawsuit is fighting to protect people like Katherine.* She has been a member of the military for 24 years and currently serves in the Navy Reserve. Biden’s COVID shot mandate goes against her deeply held religious beliefs. Katherine would prefer to retire and be done with this administration’s mandate, but her superiors won’t even allow her to retire without taking the shot first!

Military members are being told that if they do not get the shot, they will not only be discharged and separated from the military but also could face massive charges, making them personally responsible to pay for the military training they received!

“This is not the United States of America that I grew up in, defended and loved,” Katherine writes.

Liberty Counsel Action provided significant research so this class action lawsuit could be filed against Biden and his administration on behalf of members of the military, federal employees and federal civilian contractors who have been unlawfully mandated to get the COVID shots or face dishonorable discharge from the military or termination from employment.

The military plaintiffs in this lawsuit have all sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and to sacrificially lay down their lives for their fellow citizens, if necessary, against enemies both foreign and domestic.

Yet, under Biden’s lawless order, these military heroes have faced threats, intimidation, manipulation, the peril of discharge, court-martial and other disciplinary actions—simply because they submitted a religious exemption request as is their legal and constitutional RIGHT.

Our lawsuit aims to free not only members of the military, federal employees and civilian contractors, but also every American. Here’s why:

The mandates violate federal Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) law. An FDA letter dated Aug. 23, 2021, expressly states there are NO FDA-approved COVID shots available:

“Although COMIRNATY (COVID-19 Vaccine, mRNA) is approved to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 16 years of age and older, there is not sufficient approved vaccine for distribution for the population” (FDA letter to Pfizer, page 6, footnote 12, emphasis added).

According to the FDA, the Pfizer shot and BioNTech’s Comirnaty are LEGALLY DISTINCT. Pfizer remains under Emergency Use Authorization, while Comirnaty is FDA approved. BUT Comirnaty is unavailable because “there is not sufficient approved vaccine for distribution to the population.”

The FDA also confirmed Moderna’s Spikevax is not available.



Give to LCA today to strengthen our team to help fight these forced medical procedures.

Further, the mandates violate religious freedom.

The plaintiffs all hold sincere religious beliefs against the COVID shots on the basis that their body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and to defile it is a sin against God.

In addition, the plaintiffs do not want to participate directly or indirectly, or otherwise be associated with, the destruction of human life through abortion by injecting a product that was tested and/or developed with aborted fetal cell lines.

The plaintiffs’ free exercise of religion is protected under the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA).

Regarding RFRA, the Supreme Court wrote, “That statute prohibits the federal government from substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion unless it demonstrates that doing so both furthers a compelling governmental interest and represents the least restrictive means of furthering that interest.”

The Court referred to RFRA as a “super statute.” The First Amendment also protects plaintiffs’ free exercise of religion. Help us keep fighting.

The Biden administration has NO authority to require COVID shots for the military, federal employees or civilian contractors. Nor can the Biden administration pretend that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the First Amendment do not apply to its unlawful mandates.

Tens of thousands have now reached out asking for help against Joe Biden’s unlawful and deceitful shot mandates. We need your help!

Military members are facing looming deadlines. They will be discharged and fined for exercising their right to refuse the jab.

The volume and intensity of our work is overwhelming. My staff and I have often cried with these desperate people as they call our office, even as we continue to work around the clock and throughout weekends to help them.

Help us defend the defenders of freedom and the millions of others who face the jab or losing their job. Give now and DOUBLE the impact of your gift through our Challenge Grant.

Thank you for your help!
