Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Navy Vaccine Mandate

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.

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.
