West Virginia Hosting Vaccine Lottery, Giving Away Guns, Trucks, $1.5M

Gov. Jim Justice desperately wants the people of West Virginia to become vaccinated against COVID-19.

To incentivize people to take it in the arm, Gov. Justice is holding a statewide “lottery giveaway,” to include “a $1.588 million grand prize, a $588,000-second prize, full scholarships to any higher education institution in West Virginia, custom-outfitted trucks, weekend vacations at state parks, lifetime hunting and fishing licenses, custom hunting rifles and custom hunting shotguns.”

In order to qualify for the giveaway, a resident needs to have at least one dose of the vaccine. The giveaway runs from June 20th through August 4th.  

“The faster we get people across the finish line the more lives we save. That’s all there is to it,” Gov. Justice said Tuesday. “If the tab just keeps running the cost is enormous. The hospitalizations are enormous. We have to get all of our folks across the finish line.”

Many West Virginians were critical of the announcement on social media

“Just when you think the poorest excuse for a Governor I have ever seen can not sink any lower surprise!!! Wake up to anyone who is thinking about getting the poison jab because of this,” said one Facebook user. “If he is bribing and pushing this hard there is a hidden agenda. Disgraceful and disturbing is something we can always count on from Justice.”

Other states are creating incentives as well:

“Don’t use my tax dollars for your CCP/Gates/F@uci crimes against humanity schemes. State/federal dollars come from We The People and you will be held accountable,” said another Facebook user.  “Treason comes at a high cost just like the wages of sin…and harming the innocent. Why don’t you tell everyone why you’re really doing this – what you’re hiding…even if you won’t, your desperation is showing. Doesn’t take much research to see they’ve got you over a barrel. #SelloutGovJimJustice”

What one puts in one’s body is ultimately one’s choice.  With that in mind, what are your thoughts about the West Virginia giveaway?  

I’m certainly not an expert in that space so I would never tell anyone what to do.  All I’d suggest is you do as much research as possible before you make a decision one way or another.  

In this regard, I did find this conversation between Dr. Bret Weinstein (Ph.D.) and Dr. Pierre Kory (M.D.) rather fascinating.  To be clear, I’m not endorsing what they’re reporting.  I’m simply sharing it because it provides an alternative perspective to the one we’re seeing from our government and in mainstream media.  More food for thought.

    If you want the vaccine have at it personally I hope it makes all these people trying an experimental vaccine infertile. Last thing we need is more sheep running around trusting that the Government actually cares what’s in their best interest.

    If you’re vaccinated and the vaccination is as good as advertised, why do the vaccinated care if anyone else gets the shot?

    Damn. All those prizes must be about 60, 65% of west Virginia’s GDP

    Daily new case rate this week in Tehama County, California, where 23% of population is vaccinated: 15.5
    Daily new case rate this week in Orange County, where around twice the proportion of people are vaccinated (44% of population): 1.9

    Population density in Tehama County: 21 per square mile
    Population density in Orange County: 4,033 per square mile

    So right now COVID-19 is spreading at eight times the rate in the less vaccinated county, despite its people being spread out at 1/200th the density of the more vaccinated county.

    Where do I sign up for the raffles?

    I’ve gotten both shots this past winter and feel just fine. Have not grown extra body parts or become insane either! people who don’t get the shot are just prolonging this Wuhan nightmare.

      I haven’t had a flu shot ever and won’t. Still doing ok. Except I will never be able to hug my grandma again because she’s in a nursing home. You fear mongers are disgusting cowards imo.

    Oh great. My daily dose of anti-science, anti-vaccination rhetoric has been fulfilled. The only reason we’re not going to hit a million dead from the virus in the US is because of the vaccine and the wearing of masks.

    Hark. See the march of the brainwashed and bribed sheeple. Sad really.
    Moderna clinical study concludes October 27, 2022. Pfizer concludes April 6, 2023.
    Until then the “vaccine” is simply experimental gene therapy.

    I’m not sure if it’s true but several other people like Dr. Tenpenny have been warning people not to take “The Jab.”
    Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has confirmed that there is no chance of survival for people who have received any form of the vaccine. In a shocking interview, the world’s leading virologist stated bluntly: “there is no hope and no possible treatment for those who have already been vaccinated. We must be prepared to cremate the bodies.” The scientific genius backed up the claims of other eminent virologist after studying the ingredients of the vaccine. “They will all die of antibody-dependent enhancement. That is all that can be said.”

      Yeah some of the world’s biggest drug companies are conspiring to kill all the people in affluent countries that buy their drugs. Makes sense. Sorry, but that poor old SOB has lost his Nobel mind if he thinks that.

      If you don’t want the jab then don’t get it. NOBODY should be forced to, but spreading crap like that feeds right into the hands of Dr. Fauxi.

      • Erik June 4, 2021, 12:03 pm

        I totally agree with you srsquidizen, if somebody doesn’t want vaccine don’t get it but don’t spread lies and be hateful against people who are vaccinated.
        This Jay Jones is probably working for communist China or Russia.

    Such is the contempt they have for Americans that they see us all as a bunch of idiotic rednecks who will do anything for a chance at a gun or a pickup – including submitting our bodies to their poisonous genetic experiment.

    What good is getting a prize if you believe, as I do, you will not be alive or well enough to enjoy it?
