    President Joe Biden personally thanked a Coast Guardsman for saving a 94-year-old woman in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, but the hero expects to be fired within days for rejecting the COVID vaccine.

    Aviation Survival Technician Second Class Zach Loesch earned praise in a Friday phone call from the commander in chief for kicking in a wall to save a trapped, wheelchair-bound woman and her husband. The guardsman hoisted the woman in her wheelchair to a waiting helicopter, according to Breitbart, which interviewed him.

    "I told him how proud of him I was and thanked him for all the work he and his Coasties are doing to save lives," Biden said in a press release from the White House that thanked Loesch and Lieutenant Commander Christopher Hooper "for the heroic work that they and their Coast Guard colleagues have performed during search and rescue operations in response to Hurricane Ian."

    Biden said Hooper's team also saved a one-month-old baby. It was not clear where the rescues occurred.

    But the next time Loesch hears from a federal official, it could be to learn his career is over. Loesch told the news outlet he had applied for a religious exemption to avoid taking the COVID vaccine but does not expect it to be honored.

    "If I had asked any of the people I saved yesterday if they wanted to come with me even though I am unvaccinated, every single one of them would have said 'yes,'" he said.

    Loesch, who also saved several pets, said he did not mention his vaccination status or anticipated dismissal in the call with Biden, saying it would not have been appropriate.

    "It just sucks that he thanked me yet the vaccine mandate is what's kicking me out," he said. "I just love my job and I'm really good at it. It sucks. I feel like this is the job that I was born to do."

    As of Saturday afternoon, the Coast Guard had rescued or aided 442 people and 89 pets in Florida and South Carolina.

    More than 2,600 members of the U.S. Coast Guard and thousands more from other military branches remain unvaccinated. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin last year made the COVID vaccine mandatory for all service members, including those at the military academies. Most of the servicemembers who have refused the jab have been given general discharges, meaning they can receive benefits and rejoin the military if they get the vaccine, according to the Military Times.

    There are multiple lawsuits challenging the mandate, including two in South Carolina and Texas involving Coast Guard Academy cadets who were kicked out for refusing the vaccine.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
