Five days after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued a stay of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a statement complying with the order.
This decision comes as yet another temporary breath of relief for thousands of American workers facing a stark decision – get vaxxed or get lost.
On September 29, a left-wing special interest group, the National School Boards Association (NSBA), sent a letter (now removed from their website) to the White House that labeled concerned parents as perpetrators of hate crimes and potential domestic terrorists and urged the Justice Department to use federal tools – including the Patriot Act – to target them.
This past Friday, the Fifth Circuit reaffirmed its initial stay of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate which was issued via an emergency temporary standard (ETS) by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on November 5, 2021.
The mandate would require citizens who work at businesses with 100 plus employees to vaccinate against Covid-19 or undergo weekly tests (at their own expense) and wear masks. In an opinion, available on the 5th Circuit’s website, the Court found that the mandate was “staggeringly overbroad.”
This Saturday, the Fifth Circuit filed a temporary injunction suspending the federal vaccine mandate issued via an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The Court cited “grave statutory and constitutional issues” as the reason for the stay.
This past September, President Joe Biden addressed the nation to express his frustration with citizens who choose to remain unvaccinated against Covid-19. In response to this perceived problem, the President announced that he would be unrolling a series of strict workplace mandates to encourage increased rates of vaccination.
On Friday October 15, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a watchdog group, filed a Hatch Act complaint against White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki after she made a statement that appears to endorse a Democrat candidate’s run for state office.
On only the second day of the Supreme Court’s new term, the U.S. Capitol Police have issued a warning that a suspicious vehicle has been seen nearby the Supreme Court building where oral arguments begin at 10:00a.m ET.
According to the Capitol Police’s official Twitter feed, attempts were made to talk to the driver of the vehicle. The police ask that citizens avoid the area for the time being.
