While much of the attention of the nation remains on the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, there is good news from the frontline of the battle against the Covid Regime. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has reaffirmed it’s stay on the Mandate. Such stays are issued when it appears that the petitioners are likely to succeed on the merits of their case. In the 21 page opinion—
The Democratic Party Is, Has Been and always Will Be, the Party of Slavery. The Vaccine Mandate is their claim that citizens of the United States are their property to be done with as the Party pleases and exempted at their whim to benefit their political favorites.
I am waiting for the 13th Amendment suits to start.
As much as I enjoyed reading the entire order along with Mark's excellent breakdown of it, Judge Duncan's (concurring) final words were my favorite:
"Whether Congress could enact such a sweeping mandate under its
interstate commerce power would pose a hard question ... Whether OSHA can do so does not.
I concur in granting a stay."
It's the elegance not so much of the prose but of the logic. It's basically, "If Congress were to pass such a measure and the President were to sign it into law, maybe it would pass constitutional muster, maybe it wouldn't - we'd have to take a hard look. But some piddly little, dime a dozen bureaucratic agency that virtually no one would even notice if it disappeared tomorrow? Puh leez!"
Read those few words of the Judge a second time and I dare you to say they don't well express your understanding of both the spirit and the letter of our glorious Constitution.
I was surprised as I read the court order how it sounded exactly like me - except they replaced all my 4-letter words with better words. Contempt for the repulsive behavior of the Democrat regime.
This is hopeful. That it takes so long to apply what is obvious common sense, is not...we should be able as a civilized society to react more quickly to the crazy and screwball and dictatorial pronouncements of various government tyrants.
And here's how Business Insider tries to discredit the order. I guess biased judges are only a problem when they rule against your interests.
Even with this major smack down by the 5th Circuit, don't expect these communists running the country to back off. They'll pull every legal and illegal lever they can to get their way. Next up will be manipulating the decision as to which appeals court most sympathetic to their cause will get to hear the consolidated lawsuits. Their lawlessness knows no boundary...
It's a hopeful ruling, but given that Brandon and his Bolsheviks seem to only apply the law to others and as such make proclamations for corporations to ignore the court, what happens if they thumb their nose at this? It's becoming more obvious that they intend to do whatever it takes to destroy the US.
If you saw General Flynn on Tucker last night, I think he's spot on...
This decision makes me proud to be an American. Would that the SC, if and when it comes to that, and I expect it will, would find a matching eloquence and pith. I'd be a liar if I said I had any confidence in our craven SCOTUS. In the meantime, I wonder how many despicable CEOs will go along with the mandate anyway.
