Supreme Court Temporarily Blocks Biden’s ‘Vaccine-or-Test’ Mandate for Large Employers

Breaking Thursday, the Supreme Court has temporarily suspended the Biden administration’s vaccine-or-test mandate for employers with 100 or more employees.

In a second case, the Court allowed the “administration’s vaccine mandate for health-care workers at facilities that receive federal funding to go into effect” reports National Review.

The conservative majority of the justices ruled to block Biden’s vaccine mandate for private businesses, pending further review by the court.

The Biden administration argued the mandate held up to legal scrutiny with authority from the 1971 Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) which allows the federal government to regulate workplace health and safety standards.

The court argued the risk posed by Covid did not meet the very “narrow circumstances” to invoke the Emergency Temporary Standard provision of the law.

“Specifically, the Labor Secretary must demonstrate that ‘employees are exposed to grave danger from exposure to substances or agents determined to be toxic or physically harmful or from new hazards” reports National Review.

The opinion of the court states, “Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly. Requiring the vaccination of 84 million Americans, selected simply because they work for employers with more than 100 employees, certainly falls in the latter category.”

Liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan vehemently argued in opposition. Their statement reads:

“When we are wise, we know not to displace the judgments of experts, acting within the sphere Congress marked out and under Presidential control, to deal with emergency conditions…Today, we are not wise. In the face of a still-raging pandemic, this Court tells the agency charged with protecting worker safety that it may not do so in all the workplaces needed. As disease and death continue to mount, this Court tells the agency that it cannot respond in the most effective way possible.”

    OSHA was put in place by Congress to address issues that an employer blatantly puts employees in harms way. It is not about an alleged pandemic. This manmade disease will be with us just like HIV/Aids, flu, common cold, and most other ailments that we have become blind to.

    Mandating people to be vaccinated with a vaccine that is not 100% FDA approved is ludicrous. This alleged vaccine doesn’t prevent the spread or the person from catching it. In other words only people that invested in this vaccine such as Fauci are getting rich by these mandates.

Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House

Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.

Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.

National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.

In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.

Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
