Kavanaugh asks Biden to respond to flood of vaccine mandate appeals

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has had enough of this administrations’ totalitarianism. Today, Kavanaugh told Joe Biden to respond to a flurry of appeals of a Sixth Circuit ruling which allowed OSHA to move ahead with the vaccine mandate for businesses. Kavanaugh gave Biden 10 days to act.

According to Fox News:

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals initially halted the planned implementation of the mandate – which applies to businesses with 100 or more employees – after President Biden announced it earlier this fall. Due to the large number of cases against the mandate all around the country, the Sixth Circuit was chosen to hear a consolidated appeal of all of those cases. 

The Sixth Circuit overruled the Fifth Circuit, prompting the many businesses, trade associations and religious groups who sued against the mandate to ask the Supreme Court to step in and block it yet again.  

Millions of Americans are vehemently opposed to the government forcing them to put a drug into their body just so they can work and provide for their families. Under the ruling, those who don’t get the vaccine will have to submit to weekly testing if they want to keep their jobs.

Fox continues:

A group of business associations, including the National Federation of Independent Businesses, decried OSHA’s vaccine mandate – via a rulemaking process called Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) – as an attempt “to use brute regulatory power to impel vaccination of millions of Americans.”

“For many of the Business Associations’ members, the harms discussed above are threatening the very viability of their business. As several employers reported: ‘this could be catastrophic to our organization’; ‘[this] could put us out of business,’” the business associations wrote in their brief to the Supreme Court. 

The appeals went to Kavanaugh because of geography – he oversees emergency appeals from the Sixth Circuit. 

The Supreme Court is not considering the full validity of the OSHA ETS on vaccines. It is only considering whether to temporarily halt the implementation of the rule while litigation in lower courts decides the issue on the merits. If the rule goes into effect when the Biden administration wants it to, tens of millions of workers in businesses across the country will be subject to the mandate and forced to either get a vaccination or submit to a weekly COVID testing regime. 

Kavanaugh set a deadline of 4 p.m. Dec. 30 for the Biden administration to respond to the appeals. It is possible the court will then take action on the case early in 2022. 

Finally, someone at the top is confronting Biden and his dictatorial overreach into the lives of millions of Americans. Over 240 years ago, our ancestors fled a despotic king and then defeated his armies so they could live freely, and in peace. Joe Biden is attempting to be a king thinking we are his subjects. This must not stand.

As George Washington said about the separation of powers:

It is important … that the habits of thinking in a free Country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective Constitutional Spheres; avoiding in the exercise of the Powers of one department to encroach upon another.

Kavanaugh is right to take on the wannabe “king.”
