Just as Sara Carter predicted Monday on Fox News, the Biden administration’s legal troubles over vaccine and booster mandates faces a long road and ‘big fight’ ahead. 35 Navy service members who sought religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine have received redemption from a federal judge. On Monday, Judge Reed O’Connor of the Northern District of Texas blocked the Department of Defense from taking action against the service members.
The 35 service members, from the Navy SEALS and Naval Special Warfare Command, sued the Biden administration over its vaccine mandate thrust upon the military. The service members say they refused to take a Covid vaccine “for a variety of reasons based upon their Christian faith.”
“The Navy servicemembers in this case seek to vindicate the very freedoms they have sacrificed so much to protect,” O’Connor wrote in his 26-page injunction. “The COVID-19 pandemic provides the government no license to abrogate those freedoms. There is no COVID-19 exception to the First Amendment. There is no military exclusion from our Constitution.”
O’Connor added that while he “does not make light of COVID-19′s impact on the military,” the “loss of religious liberties outweighs any forthcoming harm to the Navy.” In response, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told the Washington Post officials are reviewing the injunction.
“Judge O’Connor’s decision came days before the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments on separate vaccine mandates by the Biden administration, covering employers with 100 or more workers and health care workers at Medicare- and Medicaid-affiliated facilities” reports National Review.

CIA whistleblower: analysts given money to bury covid lab-leak theory
The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic sent a letter to CIA director William Burns discussing the CIA and a COVID-19 cover-up. The letter asserts that it has knowledge from a whistleblower from the CIA’s “Covid Discovery Team” that was tasked with investigating the origins of the novel coronavirus. “New testimony from a highly credibly whistleblower” alleges that the CIA “rewarded six analysts with significant financial incentives to change their COVID-19 origins conclusion from a lab-leak to zoonosis
Apart from a “lone officer” in the group who believed the virus “originated through zoonosis,” the remaining officials agreed that, on balance of probabilities, the coronavirus was likely the result of a lab-leak.
“According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the Team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that Covid-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China,” the letter reads. “To come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a significant monetary incentive to change their position.”
In June, the agency declassified its report that the available evidence on the origins of the coronavirus suggested it “was not genetically engineered.”
