(Nov. 17, 2022) — Approximately a week after he was declared the winner in his bid for reelection against Democrat challenger and Wisconsin Lieutenant Gov. Mandela Barnes, US Sen. Ron Johnson will be a guest on the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF) weekly presentation.
Since last year the organization, founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Kirsch, has been probing the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general. Its weekly webinars have hosted physicians and other medical clinicians, attorneys and those reporting vaccine-induced injuries.
Johnson is the only member of Congress to have held hearings on the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccines given reports he received from the public and later, the U.S. government’s broad mandates that all military members and federal employees receive it. The mandates have been challenged in court with mixed results, while some cases remain open.
In early October, Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN3) pledged to probe the military vaccine mandate should Republicans gain a majority in the House of Representatives. On Wednesday the majority 218th seat was secured by Kevin Kiley who won in California’s third congressional district.
Before the midterm elections, Johnson had voiced his desire to launch a number of investigations if Republicans were to take a majority in Congress’s upper chamber. At present, Democrats will hold 50 seats, considered a majority with the tie-breaking vote cast by a Democrat vice president. Republicans hold 49 seats; a Georgia seat remains undecided and faces a December 6 runoff election between Republican Herschel Walker and Democrat incumbent Raphael Warnock.
Should Walker prevail and the Senate be tied, the respective party leaders would share power as they have in the 117th Congress. If Warnock wins, Democrats will hold a clear majority.
Other guests Thursday evening include Heather Hudson, whose young-adult son was severely injured from the vaccine, and Dr. Eduardo Balbona, the Florida physician who treated him.
