Vaccine Mandates Getting Slaughtered in Court
Injunctions flying like viral water droplets
Another day, another injunction blocking implementation of Biden’s various COVID vaccine mandates.
Last week, we reported the United States District Court for Eastern District of Missouri blocked Biden’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers in 10 states:
Yesterday, that injunction was expanded to the entire country.
The latest ruling blocks implementation of the mandate for healthcare workers nationwide and comes from United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. This ruling contains the strongest language yet to describe the lawlessness and usurpation of power by Biden’s rogue administration.
From the ruling:
If the separation of powers meant anything to the Constitutional framers, it meant that the three necessary ingredients to deprive a person of liberty or property – the power to make rules, to enforce them, and to judge their violations – could never fall into the same hands. Tiger Lily, LLC v. United States Housing and Urban Development, 5 F.4th 666 (6th Cir. 2021). (Thapar, J. Concurrence). If the Executive branch is allowed to usurp the power of the Legislative branch to make laws, two of the three powers conferred by the Constitution would be in the same hands.
If human nature and history teach anything, it is that civil liberties face grave risks when governments proclaim indefinite states of emergency. Does 1-3 v.
This ruling means that the government may not take any action toward implementation of Biden’s illegal and unconstitutional. And the ruling contains some logic that seems lost on the Covidian crowd. For example:
Although CMS spent pages and pages attempting to explain the need for mandatory COVID-19 vaccines, when infection and hospitalizations rates are dropping, millions of people have already been infected, developing some form of natural immunity, and when people who have been fully vaccinated still become infected, mandatory vaccines as the only method of prevention make no sense.
The nationwide injunction against vaccine mandates for healthcare workers follows previous rulings blocking Biden’s attempted vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees and a 9th Circuit ruling barring San Diego’s school district from imposing a vaccine mandate on teachers and staff.
Also yesterday, a federal judge in Kentucky blocked Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors affecting the states of Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.
All the injunctions state cited the president’s lack of authority, failure to make a compelling case for vaccine mandates, and the plaintiffs’ likelihood of prevailing at trial.
What’s becoming obvious to the courts was known to liberty-minded people well over a year ago: leftists are using Coronavirus as an excuse to abolish individual liberty on a scale never seen in the United States. The pursuit of totalitarian government has actually made the epidemic worse by introducing a leaky vaccine in the midst of widespread infection, as we documented early this week.
However you might feel about the vaccines themselves, vaccine mandates and passports will not end with Coronavirus. Those barcodes and chips required to enter a bar, restaurant, church, or school will soon contain every detail of your life, from your political affiliation to your gun ownership.
If you don’t believe me, just ask history.
