This past Thursday night at Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma, a thousand or more healthcare workers and concerned citizens packed the house to take a crash course, hosted by Liza Greve and Oklahomans for Health and Parental Rights (OKHPR), on how to fight the medical tyranny that’s knocking at our doors.
With Oklahoma Heart Hospital, Saint Anthony, Mercy, and potentially OU Medical Center and others recently announcing they will be requiring all employees to take the Covid vaccine, OKHPR organized an emergency town hall meeting to address the issue head on. Despite having to organize on such short notice, attendees were given a wealth of useful information and several practical steps they must take if they want to protect their health and their livelihoods from medical authoritarianism.
The event featured a panel of three experts to address the medical, legal, and political aspects of these forced vaccinations. Respectively, those experts are Dr. Jim Meehan from Tulsa, Attorney Spencer Housley from Oklahoma City, and State Senator Nathan Dahm from Broken Arrow.
Several state and local lawmakers were also in attendance to show support, including State Senators Warren Hamilton, Shane Jett, and Jake Merrick; State Representatives Wendi Stearman, Sherrie Conley, Sean Roberts, Eric Roberts, and Max Wolfley; and OKC Ward 1 City Councilman Bradley Carter.
Ignjte Liberty was the only news outlet to cover the event, as local news channels 4, 5, 9, 25, and The Oklahoman were notably absent.
Dangerous Shots Being Forced on our Healthcare Providers
The massive, short-notice attendance at this town hall is a reflection of the intense concern many healthcare workers have, not just about their own bodily autonomy and their careers, but also about the safety of the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccines their employers are forcing on them.
According to Dr. Meehan, these concerns are well founded, stating these vaccines are the deadliest vaccines he’s ever seen, ”Killing more people in the last 6 months than 31 years of all previous vaccines.” He highlighted that the spike protein generated by the vaccines not only addresses the wrong target for a proper Covid vaccine, it’s an inflammatory toxin. Likewise, the lipid nanoparticles in the them don’t stay at the injection site, as claimed by the manufacturers, but travel throughout the body, affecting reproductive and other organs.
If these vaccines can be so harmful, what could motivate these local hospitals to overlook their dangers and force them on their employees? The short-sighted pursuit of profit by hospital executives may be one answer. Meehan explained that hospitals are given bigger reimbursements from the government through Medicare and Medicaid if they reach a high enough staff vaccination rate.
In no uncertain terms, Dr. Meehan decried the people behind these decisions as criminals and agents of evil. He cited the approximately 400,000 lives that could have been saved had the CDC and Fauci promoted the therapeutics Ivermectin, Hydroxycholoroquine, and vitamin D, which have proven to be highly effective against Covid. These treatments are cheap, effective, are among the safest drugs in the world, and have kept many people from having to be hospitalized. Instead, they promoted Remdesivir, which is a $3,200 drug and, as a recent study out of Iowa has shown, actually extends the average patient’s hospital stay. Meehan did not mention the specific study, but similar reports have been seen across alternative media in recent months.
Meehan zeroed in on Ivermectin as a particularly effective Covid treatment, touting the extreme scientific rigor with which it’s been tested. It’s been around for 47 years and has undergone 101 scientific studies, 32 randomized controlled trials, and 3 meta-analyses all showing it’s incredibly safe and it works. He even mentioned that Ivermectin can help reduce the damage caused by the spike protein if you’ve already taken the vaccine.

There Is Hope…But Action Is Required
As bad as the situation facing our healthcare workers is, the panelists explained several things that can be done to protect them, but it’s going to require individual Oklahomans to take action ASAP. If these hospitals will not change their policies, the best option is for a special session of the state legislature to be called to get a bill passed that would prohibit hospitals, and hopefully all employers, from requiring their employees to take these experimental vaccines.
Additionally, legal action can be taken against hospitals by the employees they terminate for refusing the vaccine. Perhaps most effectively, those of us outside of the healthcare profession can pressure these hospitals to reconsider their decisions by simply refusing to be their patient.
Push for a Legislative Special Session
Ideally, all of the major hospital systems will come to their senses of their own accord and make employee vaccinations voluntary, as Ignite Liberty reported OU Med has done. Since it’s unlikely this will happen, legislation banning them from forcing these, and any, vaccines on their workforce would be the most effective option.
It should be noted that hospital systems forcing their employees to take vaccines against their will is nothing new. SSM Health (then Saint Anthony’s) began requiring certain vaccinations of their employees over 10 years ago. The SARS-Cov-2 vaccine is only the latest. Any legislation, then, would have to address the forcing of all vaccines, as reports show the SARS-Cov-2 vaccine is speeding towards a rushed FDA approval sometime in the fall.
The Oklahoma state legislature only operates from February through May. To pass a bill outside of their regular session would require a special session to be called. The vaccination deadlines at these hospitals are in September and exemption requests are due in August. If the legislature is going to act, it must do so immediately. A special session only takes six days to complete, making it a very doable option.
Both Governor Stitt and the state legislature has the power to call a special session anytime they want. Governor Stitt can do it through an executive order, while the legislature requires a 2/3rds vote of the house and senate. Therefore, It is critical that concerned Oklahomans contact the Governor’s office and their State Representative and State Senator and respectfully demand that they act.
As Senator Dahm pointed out, when you contact Governor Stitt to request he call a special session, it’s important to make sure to also thank him for the good work he has done. He’s taken many bold stands on our behalf and signed many laws protecting our rights like SB 658, which prohibits Oklahoma schools and universities from imposing mask mandates on students. Stitt’s contact info can be found here: https://www.governor.ok.gov/contact/general-info.
State Senator Warren Hamilton is going to send Stitt a letter formally requesting he call a special session and he’s inviting citizens to sign it. If you would like to add your name to the letter, you can email Senator Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finding and contacting your representative and legislator has been made very easy. Just search your phone’s app store for an app called “Oklahoma 58.” This is an app created by the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives as a legislative guide. Inside the app, you can tap the map and then find your location on the map. It will tell you the names of your legislators and will give you their contact info.
Senator Dahm stressed the importance of viewing this as the beginning of a relationship you’re developing with your legislators. You want to stay in contact with them and talk with them regularly face to face or over the phone. It’s much harder to overlook you when you’re standing in front of them than it is when you’re just a text or an email. When they see you, they should recognize you and when your name comes up in their phone, your face should pop in their head.
Dahm also advised, don’t just contact the legislators for where you live, contact the ones who cover the areas where you work and where you go to church too. Politicians tend not to see the light until they feel the heat, so it is imperative to contact as many of them as possible to get a special session called. You can also watch the the full video of the panel discussion wherein Senator Dahm gives some suggestions on how to overcome some of the objections you may encounter.
Guidance For Employees
If you are an employee of one of these hospitals, and want any chance of winning in court against them later on, the advice given was to follow their rules, submit any exemption request you can, document everything you can, and do not quit under any circumstances.
If the hospital gives you any deadlines or rules, you need to follow them. You don’t want to give them any chance to say they fired you because you were insubordinate. You want to force them to fire you specifically for not taking the vaccine.
If they do fire you, you are going to need documentation showing that they did it specifically for not taking the vaccine so, keep records of everything on your own personal computers, as you can be locked out of company computers very easily. Likewise, record any conversations you have with supervisors about the issue. It’s perfectly legal to do so in Oklahoma and strongly advised.
Panelist Spencer Housley said that he will be looking to file a lawsuit late this month or sometime next month to get an injunction against these hospitals to stop the forced vaccinations. Ideally, he needs several plaintiffs from each hospital. So, if you work for a hospital that’s forcing you to take the vaccination and you’d like to be a plaintiff, please email email@example.com. They will give you the steps to join these lawsuits.
Urgent Call To Action
Mr. Housley also strongly advises healthcare workers to coordinate with others at their hospitals who are also against these forced vaccinations. If healthcare workers will stand strong and work as a united front, they can put a lot of pressure on their employers. It would be difficult for them to go through with their plans if they knew, all at once, a large percentage of their workforce wouldn’t show up to work at their already understaffed hospitals.
This concern goes far beyond just hospital employees. If our local hospitals become significantly understaffed, their ability to help Oklahomans in the event of a disaster would be severely compromised. Hence, it is critical that the public at large make their voices heard. And, while we are at it, we should let them know, if at all possible, we will avoid doing business with any hospital requiring employees to take the Covid vaccine.
The reality Oklahomans face is a sobering one. These forced vaccinations are approaching quickly and the hospitals are just the first wave. If they are able to impose these dangerous mandates on their employees, your industry or your company will quickly follow their example as a template for tyranny or they will face massive pressure to do so. It is of the utmost urgency that Oklahomans act now…while there is still time.
