State and local action can stop federal and international vaccine and health mandates in their tracks. I recently appeared on the Shot Callers podcast to explain how.

During the interview, I talked about the possibility of a treaty that would potentially give the WHO policymaking authority in the U.S. and how to stop it. I point out that the WHO and CDC mandates don’t come with enforcement mechanisms. They depend on enforcement cooperation from state and local governments. Absent this cooperation, the mandates become toothless opinions.

As I explain, this strategy is based on James Madison’s advice for states and individuals in Federalist #46, a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” represents an extremely effective method to bring down federal gun control measures because most enforcement actions rely on help, support, and leadership from state and local governments.
