Supreme Court Blocks Biden's Vaccine Mandate
for Private Businesses

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/13/2022 3:53:53 PM

The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses but decided to let a separate regulation that requires health care workers to get a vaccine take effect. In a 6–3 ruling, justices halted the mandate for all private employers with 100 or more workers, ruling the states and companies that challenged the rule were likely to succeed. Biden administration officials had argued that the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970 gave them the authority to impose the mandate, but a majority of justices disagreed.

In my lifetime - - at least half of the Pubbie-appointed justices have gone over to the dark side - - but - - none of the commie-socialist justices have. This has been true for every Pubbie president - - from Eisenhower (Warren) - - to Nixon (Blackmun) - - to Reagan (O'Connor) - - to Bush (Souter) - - to Bush (Roberts) - - to Trump (Kavanaugh). Why is that? How can every Pubbie president be so foolish? Can't we ever catch a break?

Based on this ruling, look for the libtards to start ratcheting up their demand to pack the Supreme Court with leftist justices.

This still cripples our healthcare system, as many workers quit rather than submitting to the shot. However, I’ve read that some hospitals, realizing their self-imposed predicament, are now begging nurses to come back without the shot.

I'm guessing this ruling is an attempt to take some of the air out of the Jan 23 Anti Vaccine Mandate Rally on the Capitol Mall between Lincoln and Washington Monuments. People with 747s are flying attendees to Washington. This could be as large as Jan 6th - TBD.

IMHO this was a totally flawed decision by the SC. Unless I missed something in my high school civics class, it isn’t the job of the Court to decide if virus vaccinations are a good thing or bad thing for any particular group of people. Their job is to rule on the constitutionality of the law. How can this be unconstitutional for private businesses unless that business is healthcare? What happened to Equal Protection? And my comments have nothing to do with the efficacy of the vaccines.

Do the liberal justices on the court understand that their "feelings" don't count? Are they not aware that their job is to protect the people against tyranny by defending the constitution? How are these 3, and we know who they are, even on the SCOTUS? If they don't understand their job they should be removed.

#5, hospitals all over the county are so desperate that they are telling their staff who have active covid to come to work anyway. That is the level of insanity the left has caused. If these hospitals have any survival instincts at all, they will rehire the people they fired and include HUGE raises in the bargain.

A very small percentage of the Supreme Court's opinions are decided upon, or even involve, the U.S. Constitution, as the Court operates under its "Doctrine of Constitutional Advoidance." This doctrine was described by one of the Court's most famous justices, Felix Frankfurter, when he wrote, “[i]f there is one doctrine more deeply rooted than any other in the process of constitutional adjudication, it is that we ought not pass on questions of constitutionality ... unless such adjudication is unavoidable.”

General Electric suspended its Covid vaccine and testing requirement on Friday after the Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s mandate, a company spokesperson told CNBC. GE, which had174,000 employees at the end of 2020, has encouraged its employees to get vaccinated, the spokesperson said. The Supreme Court’s conservative majority, in a 6-3 ruling, called the Biden administration’s requirements a “blunt instrument” that “draws no distinctions based on industry or risk of exposure to Covid-19.”

Paul Hodgkins, according to Joe Biden’s Justice Department, is a domestic terrorist. A working-class man from Tampa, Hodgkins committed what Democrats and the media consider a murderous crime comparable to flying a packed jetliner into a skyscraper or detonating a truck filled with explosives under a crowded federal building. Paul Hodgkins entered the Capitol building on January 6, 2021. (snip) When he entered the sacred Senate chambers, Hodgkins carried with him a weapon so offensive that the mere sight of the device prompted the judge in his case to question Hodgkin’s loyalty to his own country. That weapon was a flag bearing the words “Trump 2020.”

The U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Thursday allowing the Biden administration to continue mandating COVID-19 vaccines for most health care workers is “really unfortunate” and a “big mistake” from a health policy perspective, said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Bhattacharya, a senior scholar of Brownstone Institute, told The Epoch Times the ruling presents a situation that is “FUBAR,” a military slang term that stands for “[expletive] up beyond all repair.” “That’s what this is, right? This is FUBAR,” he said, adding, “From a health policy perspective, from a public health perspective, it is a big mistake.”

The head of a medical supplies company involved in the distribution and supply of monoclonal antibodies across southeastern and northeastern regions of the nation, told NTD in a Jan. 12 interview that government takeover of the monoclonal antibody supply chain has exacerbated backlogs and shortages. “The way the products are being distributed right now, relying on the government to determine who gets what, that process can be very lengthy in terms of time,” Dealmed CEO Michael Einhorn said. As a result, physicians are reporting “surpluses in certain areas, not enough in other areas” which has fueled frustrations when critical patients are not receiving antibodies for COVID-19 infections.

President Joe Biden was not making a 'human' comparison between opponents of his voter rights push with racists and segregationists in a speech this week, said the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday.

The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.
