2. Good. It's ridiculous that Gov Stitt is trying to pull this stunt.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/29/politics/pentagon-oklahoma-vaccine/index.html

Stitt ordered Brig. Gen. Thomas Mancino, the newly appointed head of the Oklahoma National Guard, not to enforce the vaccine mandate. Mancino, who acknowledged it put him in an awkward situation, said that under state orders, his commander was the governor. But he also said that if the guard were called up under federal orders, called Title 10, he would enforce the vaccine requirement.

A defense official who briefed reporters on the issue said that members of a National Guard unit, even under state orders, called Title 32, are still required to meet federal mission requirements, including medical requirements such as vaccine mandates.

Guard members who refuse to get vaccinated risk losing their status in the National Guard and the federal pay that comes as part of training, drills and more.

Both Title 32 and Title 10 are paid for by the federal government, not the states.

3. When the state of OK funds, trains and supplies the guard and it is no longer the NATIONAL guard

Of OK..then the idiotic gov can be in charge. Until that time they are still under the orders handed down by the federal government. Itís the national guard of OK...NOT the OK guard

4. I am so sick to death of Repuke governors politicizing the vaccine.


Gov. Stitt is full of shitt.

I posted previously that if Shitt wants to play these little games, the federal government should come down hard. ALL federal funding for the state of OK gets cut off until he complies with federal standards required of NG members.
