The Right to be Let Alone: What to Do When COVID Strike Force Teams Come Knocking

“Experience teaches us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent.”—Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis 

A federal COVID-19 vaccination strike force may soon be knocking on your door, especially if you live in a community with low vaccination rates. Will you let them in? 

More to the point, are you required to open the door? 

The Biden Administration has announced that it plans to send federal “surge response teams” on a “targeted community door-to-door outreach“ to communities with low vaccination rates in order to promote the safety and accessibility of the COVID-19 vaccines.

  1. Politely ask who they are and what they want then tell them to leave your property, recording them in the process. Of course if you have a fence, gate and a big dog, like me, they will probably shout and wave at you from outside your yard. In that case just wave back then ignore them, they'll go away or if they ask if the dog bites just say anything is possible and walk away from their view.

    1. I take it that you aren't overly familiar with how governmental employees respond to dogs, then?

    2. I am, I am also familiar with my sheriff and several of the officers who patrol my area. I am also familiar with the fact the jab squad is acting with no legal jurisdiction and have no warrents so legally they can not enter. If some asshole takes it appon themselves to shoot my dog from outside my fence they have a very large problem on their hands.
      That is not a threat but a promise

  2. If you live in an urban area just answer the door naked. That worked for a friend of mine when he knew the Jehovah's Witnesses were coming.
    Yeah, he was nuts. But he was smart, too.

  3. I have the locked gate at all times and my house and all my land are fenced. It's a bit of a driveway from the gate to the house. I've no trespassing and beware of the security dogs on the fence. I hope that keeps the bastards away.

    1. No. A recent midwestern state "law enforcment" action was held proper because a Fish and Game cop was used to trespass, against posted signage, and install "game cameras" which just happened to surveil the house. When the property owner removed the cams, he was SWATTED, and convicted of destruction of govt property, resisting arrest, tampering with evidence, and eieio.
      Reminds me of a Steve Esrle song, but I've forgotten which one.

      Don't answer the door, but don't expect that to be enough.

  6. So son you jumped my locked gate. Walked passed the no trespassing signs and followed the white painted rocks up here? Those white painted rocks son, they're range markers. The one by the gate is 800 yards. How fast you reckon you can run 800 yards

  7. Say what you want but don't lie to someone who might be a Federal agent... The door monkeys might be sworn in as temporary and restricted agents but sworn nonetheless.

    That's how they will get you for a felony that strips your 2nd amendment rights.

    1. Great point. I hadn't thought of that.

      I guess we're back to asking them what their herpes tests showed.

    2. It isn’t a lie if you say:
      “Bless your heart. My property line is there - move to the other side of it.”

    3. Just tell them nothing except you need to get off my property while recording the exchange

    4. If you do have to interact with someone suspicious, see the reference above about lying to a Federal agent (note small "a"), say that you will not answer _any_ questions until you have consulted with your attorney, ask for their business card, and tell them that you will ask your attorney to contact them about a written list of proposed questions that they would like you to consider answering, and their authority for asking them.

  8. Low vaccination rate areas are mostly Black ghettos. I hope the strike force is wearing their bullet proof Kevlar Hasmat gear.

  9. In other news. I'm starting to regret not having picked up that excavator when my neighbor wanted to sell it a couple years back. I've got a new drywell to put in. Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket.

    1. Pro-tip. It never hurts to have a drywell in your preps. Just in case you need one. In the middle of the night. Over the top of that thing you always meant to get rid of. If someone hits a drywell in your yard, why would they keep digging?

  10. Ima poor man is too dumb to get an ID, so can't get an ID so can't get proof that I got the shot.
    I do have proof though that I voted 12 times for Pinocchio last year, so does that count?

  12. Biden's handlers don't give a shit about the Constitution and you. Record your meeting with the scab monkeys when they come. Don't use the door camera if you use if you use the door camera's cloud for storage. Record scabs all the way until scabs off your property. FREEDOM

  13. Just ........:.::dont answer the door.
    I mean jeeez, The Enemy Has Said,.....
    “They are coming.”
    Ok. There on the way.
    Don’t be a foolish horror film teenage girl.
    There’s nothing good behind the door.

    Should you come face to face.

    Like talkin to any LE.
    Say nothing. Name and Address, Full Stop.

    They would rather you Lie than say ZERO.
    Words give them something to work on, Prove or Disprove.

    listening...it works.
    Took me decades to figure.

  18. I have one functional lung.
    Between sessions on the nebulizer, I cough a lot.
    .
    After the Surge Team knocks, I answer politely... coughing in their direction.
    .
    I am hard of hearing, so I need to get closer to them to hear their questions.
    As they back [cough cough] away, I naturally move toward them.
    .
    In the first half-minute or so [cough cough cough], they get invited in for some [cough] nice lemonade and [cough cough] fresh cookies I just [cough] made.
    .
    I was always the 'neighborly' sort.
