Senator Ted Cruz made similar comments on ‘Hannity’ Monday night.
“I’ve seen the worst of this. I’ve seen people die. I’m telling everyone to take it seriously,” said Hannity.
“With any serious disease, you have to take it seriously. The character of the Democrats, whether it’s Joe Biden or Andrew Cuomo, they do not respect your liberty,” responded Cruz.
“My view is very simple. There should be no mandates concerning COVID. No mask mandates, no vaccine mandates, no vaccine passports,” he added. “I believe in individual choice, individual responsibility.”
Cruz’ comments come just hours after the Secretary of Defense ordered all active-duty members of the military to receive the vaccine by September 15th.
“I will seek the president’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon [FDA approval] whichever comes first,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in the memo, expected to be released to troops on Monday.
“I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the President if l feel the need to do so,” Austin added. “To defend this Nation, we need a healthy and ready force.”

'ROUTINE ERROR': 6,700 North Carolina Residents ‘Incorrectly Told They Have Coronavirus’ via Text
Nearly 7,000 residents in North Carolina were told via text message last week that they tested positive for the Coronavirus despite not actually having contracted the disease.
“More than 6,700 individuals in Mecklenburg County in North Carolina were told in a text message sent from Mecklenburg County Health Department on Friday that they tested positive for COVID-19 and over 500 people were told through a county email that they were also infected with the novel coronavirus. But the results were incorrect due to a technical error by Health Space, the company they use for contact tracing, according to a statement on the county’s website,” reports Fox News.
“An error during routine maintenance last Friday resulted in a county data vendor sending erroneous texts and email messages to people saying they were positive for COVID-19,” the statement on the county website said.
“Very quickly we began to work with the vendor to understand the issue and make sure that it did not continue. Once corrected we were told that 6,727 text messages and 541 emails were sent to individuals who were already in their system. We then worked with the vendor to send a corrected text/email to all that received the erroneous one,” the email stated in part.
