A California bar owner has been charged with three felony counts for identity theft, carrying an unregistered gun and forging government documents, after he was busted for selling people fake COVID vaccine certificates.
The bar owner, 59-year-old Todd Anderson, runs the Old Corner Saloon in Clements, California about 40 miles south of Sacramento. The popular Central Valley hangout does a brisk business for its fun times and good food, but it’s also become well-known as a spot to buy a fake COVID card if that’s what you’re after.
So the bureaucrats came in and busted it up.
The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control arrested Anderson earlier this week, charging him with the three felony crimes and a misdemeanor for forging medical records. The bar could also have its liquor license pulled.
The First Fake Vaccine Card Bust in America
As far as is known, this is the first fake vaccine card bust in America, but the issue of fake vaccine cards is already out there. Airlines especially have struggled with how to police the issue.
State authorities got word that Anderson had been hawking fake cards at his Clements bar a month ago. Undercover agents bought fake cards for 20 bucks each at the bar, afterwards moving in for the arrest where they also discovered the unregistered and loaded gun behind the bar, a laminating machine and 30 cards ready to be filled out with fake info.
They are not sure how many fakes were sold.
Vaccine cards have been given to around 150 million people by the CDC, and they’re not exactly hard to copy. There are all sorts of fake cards sold online and people have been learning how to copy and fake them in various forums for those who don’t want to get the vaccine but also want to travel and return to normal life.
“Distributing, falsifying or purchasing fake covid-19 vaccine cards is against the law and endangers yourself and those around you,” said charging district attorney for San Joaquin County Tori Verber, adding that “it is disheartening to have members in our community show flagrant disregard for public health in the midst of a pandemic.”
The important question here is: why. Why are people trying to buy fake vaccine cards and take a risk if the vaccine is supposedly so safe and effective?
Well, when you dig a little bit deeper you find out that all the pressure and propaganda to get vaccinated has a little more complexity and disturbing details of bad side effects and unknown long-term consequences under the surface.
Are we not allowed to ask questions?
Fake vaccine certificates will be on the rise.

Tucker Carlson Points Out the Unknown Dangers of Vaccines
The truth is that we just don’t know very much about the COVID vaccines. As Tucker Carlson pointed out recently on his show, we’ve only been told the positives of getting the shot, and almost nothing about the potential risks.
“If you haven’t had your shot, you’re under enormous pressure to get your shot. You understand that soon you may not be able to fly on commercial airplanes or go to work at the office or send your children to school if you don’t have the shot. Meanwhile, the social pressure is enormous,” Tucker pointed out.
So, what about the dangers? Tucker got specific, citing official statistics:
“Between late December of 2020, and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccines in the United States. Three thousand, three hundred and sixty-two — that’s an average of 30 people every day,” he reported.
As Tucker noted, “the actual number is almost certainly much higher than that — perhaps vastly higher.”
“In just the first four months of this year, the U.S. government has recorded more deaths after COVID vaccinations than from all other vaccines administered in the United States between mid-1997 and the end of 2013,” Tucker added.
Maybe instead of arresting a small town bar owner for printing up fake COVID cards we should be having a federal investigation into the safety of the COVID vaccines themselves.
