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.”

    Maybe the court has room for courp’s that cease to be directly or indirectly due to such rulling.

    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.

National Institutes of Health renews ‘bat coronavirus’ research funding



Wuhan Lab

Have we not learned our lesson? The now infamous National Institutes of Health has renewed a grant to EcoHealth Alliance for research on the “risk of bat coronavirus spillover emergence.” The news is shocking to many due to multiple agencies of the U.S. government supporting the lab leak theory of Covid’s origin.

“Zoonotic coronaviruses (CoVs) represent a significant threat to global health, as demonstrated by the emergence of SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2,” a press release read. “Bats were identified as the wildlife reservoirs of SARS-CoV by EcoHealth Alliance, and since then, we have published hundreds of novel SARS-related CoV (SARSr-CoV) sequences from wildlife in China and across Southeast Asia.”

In order to “ease” concerns and some objections, the press release noted on-the-ground work under the auspices of this new grant will not be conducted in China. The study is specific to southern China, but the “renewed work will involve collaboration only between EcoHealth Alliance and the Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School.”

All “recombinant virus culture or infection experiments” will also be removed from the research process. The press release assured that the research would not be “gain of function,” which involves extracting viruses from animals and engineering them in a lab to make them more transmissible or dangerous to humans.

The Biden administration has been supportive. National Review reports:

In February, national-security council communications coordinator John Kirby said the Biden administration supports gain-of-function research despite the potential risks as long as that it is pursued in a safe and transparent manner.

“[The president] believes that [the research is] important to help prevent future pandemics, which means he understands that there has to be legitimate scientific research into . . . the potential sources of pandemics so that we understand [them] and so we can prevent them from happening,” Kirby said.

However, let’s not forget:

in February, FBI director Christopher Wray told Fox News that Covid likely escaped from a laboratory in China, issuing the first public opinion of the sort from the agency on the origins of the virus.

“The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan,” Wray said. “Here you are talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab.”
