“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.” ―1984
The public is seeing something that hasn’t happened since the rise of Adolf Hitler. When Hitler came to power he created his own personal police forces know as the SA and SS. These two organizations became both Hitler’s protectors and infamous for their role in arresting, sending to concentration camps and murdering millions of the Nazi Party’s political and religious opponents.
Holocaust Explained reports on Hitler’s rise to power and formation of the SA and SS:
The Nazi Party’s paramilitary organisation were the Sturm Abeilung, more commonly known as the SA. The SA were formed in 1921 and were known as ‘brownshirts’ due to their brown uniform. Initially most members were ex-soldiers or unemployed men. Violent and often disorderly, the SA were primarily responsible for the protection of leading Nazis and disrupting other political opponents’ meetings, although they often had a free rein on their activities.
If Hitler was to gain power democratically, he needed to reform the SA. He set out to change their reputation. A new leader, Franz von Salomon, was recruited. Rather than the violent free rein they had previously enjoyed, Salomon was stricter and gave the SA a more defined role.
In 1925, Hitler also established the Schutzstaffel, otherwise known as the SS. The SS were initially created as Hitler’s personal bodyguards, although they would go on to police the entire Third Reich.
The SS were a small sub-division of the SA with approximately 300 members until 1929. In 1929, Heinrich Himmler took over the organisation, and expanded it dramatically.
Today, we are seeing similar police forces that we call the Vax Passport Schutzstaffel or VPSS used in certain cities, states and nations to enforce the mandates handed down by the Vax Police State.
Today there are 31 nations that require a vaccine passport. In America there are 4 states (California, Hawaii, New York and Louisiana) that issue vaccine passports. We labeled these 35 as “Vax Police States.”
Rise of the Vax Police State
BBC News reported the following countries have implemented Covid vaccine passports:
An EU vaccine “passport” is being introduced across all 27 member nations – plus Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein.
Citizens of these nations can download it or obtain a paper copy – at no cost. It is also available to non-EU nationals living legally in member states who have the right to travel to other member states.
Because the UK is no longer in the EU, the certificate is not available to most Britons.
- Dutch sign up in droves for Covid test holiday
- EU plans rollout of Covid travel form by summer
- British Airways plans app-based travel pass
- Europe in vaccine race to save summer
The certificate can be issued if someone has been vaccinated, recently had a negative Covid test or recently recovered from the virus.
Anyone holding the certificate should be exempt from testing or quarantining when crossing a border within the EU.
Other EU nations also have their own certificate or vaccine passport.
Authorities have set up a health pass that will allow people to access restaurants, bars, planes and trains.
At present, venues that accommodate more than 50 people already require proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test.
The pass will be required by all adults from the beginning of August and include children over the age of 12 from 30 September.
In order to obtain the pass, people must have proof they are fully vaccinated, recently tested negative or recently recovered from the virus.
On 24 July, about 160,000 people protested across the country against the Covid pass and mandatory vaccinations for health workers.
Israel introduced a vaccine pass earlier this year. It required people to show proof of either vaccination or having recently had the virus. The pass helped increase uptake of the vaccine, especially among younger people.
After infection rates declined, authorities decided to end the scheme.
But the government has now announced plans to reinstate the system amid a recent surge in cases.
The green pass system will only allow those over the age of 12 who are vaccinated, recovered from Covid-19 or who present a negative test result to attend large events and enter certain public spaces, the Times of Israel reports. The new pass will come into effect from 29 July.
The pass will apply to cultural and sporting events, gyms, restaurants and dining halls, conferences, tourist attractions and places of worship.
China introduced a QR code system last year which categorised people into different colours. A green colour allows people to move around without restrictions while someone with a yellow code may be asked to stay at home for seven days.
Many public spaces in China require people to show their QR code in order to gain entry.
In March, China launched a digital health certificate that shows the holder’s vaccine status and test results. The certificate is available to foreigners in China as well as Chinese nationals. It is hoped that Chinese citizens will be able to use the certificate as a vaccine passport in other countries in future.
It’s not yet clear which countries China is in discussions with to get its certificate recognised.
In April, the White House ruled out introducing mandatory federal Covid vaccination passports, saying citizens’ privacy and rights should be protected. However four states have active vaccination apps, according to MIT Technology Review.
But some states have also opted to introduce their own measures to try to increase vaccination rates.
California will require all state employees and health care workers to show proof of vaccination or be tested weekly from next month. New York City will adopt a similar measure from mid-September requiring its municipal workers – including police officers and teachers – to be vaccinated or face weekly tests.
At present, inoculated Australians have a digital certificate on their phones but it has no rights attached to it.
The country’s tourism minister Dan Tehan has said that a vaccine passport could give people “the right to be able to travel across borders when there are lockdowns, or if there are parts of a state which have been locked down, because of an outbreak”.
He also said that giving more freedoms to people who are vaccinated would encourage more to get the jab.

The Bottom Line
David Bossie, president of Citizens United, gives The Real Story on a shocking sight at a family restaurant and why everyone who loves freedom and believes in our ‘Bill of Rights’ should be gravely concerned.
Vax Police States are becoming the new normal. These states are using their law enforcement agencies or Vax Passport Schutzstaffel (VPSS) to enforce the use of Vax Passports. Whether they just suggest getting vaxxed, require getting vaxxed in certain jobs or mandate getting vaxxed, it doesn’t matter. Why? Because it is all part of a long term effort to force people to submit to the jab.
As MIT Technology Review noted:
A year ago, vaccines to tackle the covid pandemic seemed like a far-off idea. Today, though, doses have been delivered to almost one-quarter of the world’s people—and some are being asked to prove they’re among them, leading to the rise of so-called vaccine passports.
The needle and now a pill are the new weapons used by the state. They are symbols of the Vax Police State.
Some governments don’t force you, but they just take away everything you hold near and dear away until you submit to the jab.
It’s called tyranny.
