Advancing Liberty Through Action

Witness Tampering Hides the Truth

Mar 17, 2022

Liberty Counsel Action has been providing research assistance to its sister organization, Liberty Counsel, which is challenging in court mandatory COVID injections. The eve before this hearing in Navy SEAL 1 v. Austin, a critical witness was ordered NOT to testify regarding the high number of COVID shot injuries in the military. The witness, a military doctor, was visibly shaken. The hearing the next day was dramatic.

The pressure right now on unwilling people to take these shots is extraordinary. Vaccine Passports are being rolled out as “vaccine credentials” in about half of our states, and they open the doors for a dangerous and direct attack on our freedom. Urge our state and federal leaders with your faxes to protect our freedom. — Mat

Under federal law 18 USC 1512, it is a crime to intimidate or threaten a witness with the intent to influence, alter or withhold their testimony. On the evening before our hearing, while preparing her testimony, Lt. Col. Theresa Long received a call from her Colonel.

After leaving the room to take the call, she returned visibly shaken. A superior officer higher than her immediate commander (a General) ordered her not to testify regarding certain critical information relevant to our case!

I have never witnessed anything like this. The government intentionally threatened a witness under subpoena on the eve of testimony in a federal court. But once again, it showed the Biden administration’s complete disregard for the law and for truth.

The scene in the courtroom the next day was dramatic.

Lt. Col. Long joined ROTC at age 16 and enlisted in the Army at 17. A medical doctor and a flight surgeon, Dr. Long holds a master’s degree in public health and has received specialized training in epidemiology and biostatistics, among other accomplishments. She is an expert in the military’s database that tracks all military health billing codes.

Dr. Long was part of the team of whistleblowers who conducted a study of the last five years of Department of Defense’s (DOD) Defense Military Epidemiology Database (DMED) to track symptoms and disease diagnoses before and after the advent of the COVID shots. She and others compared the prior five years to 2021 and found a dramatic increase in injuries and illnesses after the COVID shots became available.

Dr. Long informed her commander that she was protected under the Whistleblower Act. The commander stated the order had come from much higher up in the chain of command.

When Dr. Long returned to the conference room, she was in tears.

“I’m watching these people die, and they are telling me I can’t say anything,” she said. Already that afternoon, Dr. Long had received four calls from service members who had developed myocarditis after receiving the shots.

Thursday morning, before entering the courtroom, Dr. Long says the Holy Spirit gave her a verse: “If you are called to testify about something you have seen or that you know about, it is sinful to refuse to testify, and you will be punished for your sin” (Lev. 5:1).

But our military is just one of the many groups of employees being forced to get these shots and provide proof of it. Outside the courtroom, there is a way you can help. Vaccine Passports are a serious threat to freedom. Demand that our state and federal lawmakers protect our freedom.

STOP VACCINE PASSPORTS AND MANDATES. Send your faxes today.

After taking the oath on the witness stand, Dr. Long shared her extensive education and training in the Army, medicine and public health. For her degree in public health, Dr. Long spent a year researching the DOD’s DMED.

When asked about the DMED, she said, “I have been ordered not to answer that question.” Judge Steven Merryday immediately asked, “Ordered by who?” She then testified about what happened the night before the hearing.

Asked if the information the military ordered her not to testify to was relevant and important to the court and the public, Dr. Long said, “Yes.” When asked “Why?”, she paused.

Holding back tears, she looked at the judge and said, “I have so many soldiers being destroyed by this vaccine. Not a single member of my senior command has discussed my concerns with me ... I have nothing to gain and everything to lose by talking about it. I’m OK with that because I am watching people get absolutely destroyed.”

NO ONE should be forced to take a minimally tested experimental drug, especially when that drug violates a person’s deeply held religious convictions. And NO ONE should be silenced when speaking the truth. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) protects federal employees—including military members.

Send your faxes to state and national leaders to demand they fight against anything that forces these injections on anyone!

We need your help. Liberty Counsel Action is assisting the representation of service members in every branch of the military. We are now working with nearly 900 service members, and that number grows every week. This is in addition to federal employees, federal civilian contractors, health care workers and others who have been unlawfully mandated to get the COVID shots or face punishment.

Now is not the time to stop or withdraw from this critical battle. We must press forward. Right now, the impact of your gift will be DOUBLED through our 2022 Challege Grant. I hope you will help be a part of making this happen with a monthly recurring gift or a one-time donation today.

STOP JOE BIDEN’S RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION in our Military!

Help us stop the mandates and Vaccine Passports.
