Mandate Militants In Anguish, Normal People Jubilant; Grassley thanks "..Countless independent businesses representing millions of workers"
So I read the opinion. (I'm a retired lawyer of 40+ years, though no expert in OSHA/labor matters.) The grounds for the decision are narrow, no doubt based on the issues as presented and argued. We'll take the result, surely, but the sole basis of the decision was that OSHA exceeded its statutory mandate. As I read it, this was totally the case, though the Sixth Circuit thought otherwise. So lots of the usual word parsing and legalese. I know it well, There is nothing here about the constitutionality of such a mandate. There is nothing about the ability of Congress to legislate the opposite result (which they no doubt can, though presumably the gutless Republicans would not go along. Would they?) There is nothing about the ability of states to create their own laws, though this would surely result in a large split in the states. Also not a word about the lethality and destructiveness of the Vaxx, which should definitely be the death knell for this whole agenda. Ain't going to happen. Also, note that the plaintiffs LOST the companion case (federal workers will need to get vaxxed)--which I did not read. So the Court may believe the Vaxx has some benefits and is basically justified, at least right now. The justices are all vaxxed, I believe. And I don't trust them one bit.
All people should have this right but this does not cover all. This is a small tactical victory on which we can hopefully build. We cannot relax until the power is taken away from the criminals at the top of the power pyramid. All our problems emanate from one source.
I agree this is great news but as usual they bargained. Now healthcare workers will have to decide between a job or their life. This is going to create a huge healthcare worker shortage and that includes nurses and doctors. We are already experiencing this crisis. These workers most of whom have natural immunity cared for COVID patients for almost 2 years now and without a vaccine. They are probably the safest of all Americans because they have natural immunity. Forcing a medical procedure on anyone is unconstitutional and the in my opinion the Supreme Court failed us again.
No one is even bothering to fight for federal workers who are losing their jobs due to Biden's order. And yeah, let's toss those healthcare workers to the curb too. This is a concession to business, not any victory worth celebrating.
We have to keep our eyes on the prize despite this win: there is no pathogenic virus. This centuries long, serial con of the population needs to be shut down once and for all and that depends on supporting Dr. Kaufman’s free to watch documentary Terrain to be aired internationally on 2/5 and 2/12
Nice going, COVID-addled Dems! You've lost this Progressive, who unexpectedly found himself agreeing with Justice Thomas. Has COVID rotted the logic of the liberal justices? If they're worried about people being protected in the work place, anyone can get vaccinated. It doesn't take a government mandate to accomplish that. We all know, though, that these mandates are complete bullshit. Your vaccination doesn't make me safer...
These cases were based on a profoundly flawed set of facts. Vaccinations neither stop transmission or protect people from infection. Why are the PTB even thinking about them as useful anymore (unless they're not doing this for our health ☹️)?
The scum behind this is playing with us all. Biden is a compromised pedophile. Deploying a medical military unit to 5 states should be watched carefully. Destroying the lives of the health related hero's from last year ( empty hospitals and all ) is part of the plan to replace them with another level of martial law. At some point the walking dead (jabbed) will come home to roost and the MSM will lie and say it is another variant. Understand that at some point the vote that has helped so many today could change with the declaration of newer more fake emergencies. Biden sh_t his pants today and sat in it for 2 hours before someone smelled it should be the big story but lies are still the headlines. Why? Because the enemy of the commoners in the US speaks through the MSM and The White House. This doesn't end until these evildoers are hanging from the neck until dead. Cecilia: This is good news for sure. Keep an eagle eye on these baby killers because they are not done with us.
I hope you're right, and if I did not believe this were a globalist effort, I might be celebrating, but I have read too much to believe this is "over." There is no way the U.S. will be an outlier in global tyranny. I think we're just on pause.
The OSHA case regarding vaccine mandates which settled today sounds like it would qualify as a miscarriage of justice because of inaccurate information.
So why are healthcare workers being discriminated against? And in this case it's not just a requirement; it's a requirement for reimbursement.
The opinion re CMS and the Biden shot order can be read here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/21a240_d18e.pdf
The decision turned only on the question of whether CMS had statutory authority to impose the mandates on HCWs in hospitals, nursing homes, etc. Infuriating that the giant lies in the fundamental premises put forth by the Govt (they're merely "concerned" about the "health & safety of patients" covered by Medicare/Medicaid so need to "stop transmission of SARS-Cov2" by injecting all those caring for them) are not even questioned. It's not at issue at all.
Justice Thomas' closing paras in his dissenting opinion addressed the lack of statutory authority for Federal Govt to mandate the shots, and that States do have that authority, to wit:
"Finally, our precedents confirm that the Government has failed to make a strong showing on the merits. “We expect Congress to speak clearly when authorizing an agency to exercise powers of vast economic and political significance.” Alabama Assn. of Realtors v. Department of Health and Human Servs., 594 U. S. ___, ___ (2021) (per curiam) (slip op., at 6) (internal quotation marks omitted). And we expect Congress to use “exceedingly clear language if it wishes to significantly alter the balance between state and federal power.” Ibid. (internal
quotation marks omitted).
The omnibus rule is undoubtedly significant—it requires millions of healthcare workers to
choose between losing their livelihoods and acquiescing to a vaccine they have rejected for
months. Vaccine mandates also fall squarely within a State’s police power, see Zucht v. King, 260 U. S. 174, 176 (1922), and, until now, only rarely have been a tool of the Federal
Government. If Congress had wanted to grant CMS authority to impose a nationwide vaccine mandate, and consequently alter the state-federal balance, it would have said so clearly. It did not. * * *
These cases are not about the efficacy or importance of COVID–19 vaccines. They are only about whether CMS has the statutory authority to force healthcare workers, by
coercing their employers, to undergo a medical procedure they do not want and cannot undo. Because the Government has not made a strong showing that Congress gave CMS that broad authority, I would deny the stays pending appeal. I respectfully dissent."
Good news on the COVID front. It is coming apart slowly. We are waking people up.
The Globalist conspiracy manipulators are becoming desperate. They are PUSHING for Civil War here in the US now. Oath Keepers's founder Stuart Rhodes was arrested for indictment today. His organization is still very much intact. There are plans for a military drill in North Carolina in the coming weeks, to put down any patriot forces with US military attacks. Will the military violate their oaths and arrest citizens for Biden and the REAL insurrection perpetrators?

Powerful documentary out of Australia. This is going WORLD-WIDE fast!
It's no big thing either. All mandates should be rescinded at once and never allowed. There can be no half-arsed compromises, for it favors one group over another instead of individual liberty and the right to make one's own choices. This is still communism any way you slice it.
I am truly hopeful for the 1st time in a while. We are dealing with baby killers. Stay vigilant.
Grateful for small favors, but we cannot let the lies being expressed in open court by the members of the SC stand. No doubt these are not the first lies told by these “so-called esteemed” people who control our lives. I can only imagine what happens behind closed doors. What do we the people do about this, we can no longer allow ourselves to be bamboozled, how do we clean up our corrupt judicial system?
Yes. Hope IS “as realistic as its opposite [despair].” And I choose to have faith, hope, and love till the end of my time here on earth.
