The Skies just got a little friendlier after a Florida federal Judge overruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) transportation mask mandate.
Following the ruling Monday by U.S. district judge Kathryn Mizelle, major airlines and Amtrak announced they were ending the requirement to wear masks while traveling. Mizelle ruled that the CDC mandate violated the Administrative Procedure Act, meaning it failed to justify the reasoning behind the mandate; a procedure federal agencies must adhere to.
Just hours after the ruling, a Biden Administration official told media outlets the mandate “is not in effect at the time.” A cause for celebration, “American, Delta, Southwest, United, and Alaska Airlines all said on Monday night that passengers could fly without masks” reports National Review.
Some pilots even made the announcement about the policy change mid-flight. United Airlines sent out a peppy tweet Monday evening with the announcement. “Masks are no longer required on domestic fights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country’s requirements) or at U.S. airports. More comfortable keeping yours on? Go right ahead…the choice is yours (you look Dino-mite either way)!”

Southwest encouraged passengers to make their own decision about whether or not to wear a mask based on what’s best for their “personal wellbeing.” Ten major airline CEOs wrote an open letter to President Biden last month calling on him to end the mask mandate.
“It makes no sense that people are still required to wear masks on airplanes, yet are allowed to congregate in crowded restaurants, schools and at sporting events without masks, despite non of these venues having the protective air filtration system that aircraft do” the letter stated.

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.”
