Those counties and cities, in turn, are using the federal money to award contracts to local contractors. Those contractors have employees and can hire subcontractors who have their own employees.
All through this chain -- Federal money, state money, city money, county money, contractor money, payroll money -- the money comes with a mandatory vaccine requirement or the funds have to be repaid.
This is because the American Rescue Plan of 2021 is administered by the US Treasury. In its terms and conditions document covering federal grant awards, the US Treasury explicitly states that award recipients (and those who receive those funds as they are distributed) must comply with Joe Biden's "executive orders."
9. Compliance with Applicable Law and Regulations.
a. Recipient agrees to comply with the requirements of section 603 of the Act, regulations adopted by Treasury pursuant to section 603(f) of the Act, and guidance issued by Treasury regarding the foregoing. Recipient also agrees to comply with all other applicable federal statutes, regulations, and executive orders, and Recipient shall provide for such compliance by other parties in any agreements it enters into with other parties relating to this award.
This means that all recipients of covid "relief" funds under the Biden regime are compelled to push vaccine mandates, even to their contractors and subcontractors (and all their employees).
Even more alarming is the fact that these federal covid "relief" funds can be used by local cities and counties to replace private sector businesses which are not demanding 100% vaccine compliance.
For example, a local city or county in any U.S. state may decide to use federal funds to launch:
... you get the picture. Essentially, counties and cities can use federal funds to displace private sector businesses, driving a kind of communist takeover of local economies where vaccine mandate compliance is necessary for anyone to keep their job. These federal funds can also be used by local governments to purchase buildings and land, taking them off the market and denying their use by private sectors businesses.
Since the Federal Reserve continues to print a seemingly unlimited quantity of fake fiat currency (dollars), this communist takeover of local economies will not stop until the money printing machines cease operations and the dollar collapses. At that point, these local communities that depended on federal money will be plunged into panic, destitution and chaos because they no longer have organic, private sector, free market businesses that are owned and operated by local people.
You are essentially watching a communist-style takeover of America's local economies under the cover of COVID "relief" funds. These funds are providing a kind of Universal Basic Income to local government municipalities, and with that bailout money, these local governments become increasingly dependent on federal money while deepening their compliance with federal mandates (such as vaccine compliance).
This is truly a federal swamp takeover of America through COVID "relief" funds. But instead of being a relief, it's more like a marxist nightmare of economic tyranny and medical totalitarianism.
In Texas, the group providing the best coverage of this federal "relief" funding takeover is TexasRightToKnow.com. On that site, you'll learn about SB 8 and HB 145 (Texas Senate and House bills) which have been rocketing through committees at record pace, desperate to distribute $16.3 billion in funds handed to Texas by the federal government under the American Rescue Plan of 2021.
Those funds are about to be deposited into the bank accounts of counties, cities, schools and even some Texas businesses. But it's all a trap: Anyone who accepts such funds will be contractually obliged to push vaccine mandates for all employees, contractors and subcontractors.
Any entity that accepts these funds without complying with Biden's authoritarian vaccine mandate may face bank account seizure, fines and demands to return the full amount of the relief funds to the federal government.
The only reason cities, counties and states are desperate for bailout money is because the money printing madness of the Federal Reserve and US Treasury is only accelerating. Endless money printing has now collided with COVID labor force lockdowns (due to vaccine mandates) to create a "perfect storm" of supply chain disruptions, empty shelves, price inflation and food inflation.
The Epoch Times reveals some of the price inflation that's already impacting America due to supply chain shortages and price inflation:
Gas: 42.1 percent
Meats, poultry, fish, and eggs: 10.5 percent
Propane, kerosene, and firewood: 27.6 percent
Fuel oil: 42.6 percent
Electricity: 5.2 percent
Bacon and similar products: 19.3 percent
Uncooked beef steaks: 22.1 percent
Furniture: 11.2 percent
Used cars and trucks: 24.4 percent
Rental cars: 42.9 percent
Yet to address the very problem they have created by printing too much fake fiat currency, the powers that be have decided to print more money and distribute it to government entities which will use it to displace private sector employees and services. Given the incredible waste, corruption and inefficiency of government-run operations, this economic replacement strategy is going to be nothing less than catastrophic for America's local economies.
The American people can therefore expect a sharp worsening of supply chains, reduced availability of first responders, shocking food inflation and the continued (accelerated) demise of the dollar.
This is obviously going to lead to a tipping point of public frustration and anger which will almost certainly spill into the streets in the form of social chaos and an angry revolt. Notice that the poor will be harmed the most by these "free money" policies that are pursued under the cover of COVID "relief" funds.
As President Ronald Reagan said (paraphrased), the most frightening statement in the English language is, "We're from the government and we're here to help."
Today at 2pm central on Brighteon.TV, we will be airing my exclusive interview with a federal grant finance and compliance expert who is attempting to sound the alarm over the vaccine mandates tied to federal relief money.
I also cover this topic in detail in today's Situation Update podcast via Brighteon.com:
The full interview with my source on this will also be posted on the HR Report channel on Brighteon.com later today:
Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
