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.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
