Common Sense From Past West Point Graduates

On Sunday, The Epoch Times reported that three retired military generals (West Point graduates) signed a letter expressing concern about the current leadership of West Point.

The article reports:

The letter, titled “Declaration of Betrayal of West Point And the Long Gray Line,” asks for the following information:

    1. An explanation for the irregularities in the enforcement of the Honor Code.
    2. A justification for the mandatory vaccinations of cadets with the COVID Virus despite widespread adverse reactions to the inoculation, as well as provisions for exceptions for cadets with religious objections.
    3. An explanation for teaching Critical Race Theory at the Academy that constitutes an attack upon the Constitution and our constitutional Republic. This is behavior that constitutes unconstitutional conduct, if not sedition.
    4. An explanation of reported mismanagement of the cadet dining facility resulting in unsanitary conditions, inadequate food prepared for the meal, and food served that was reportedly unfit for consumption.
    5. Political activism on the part of civilian faculty members constituting political activity violating the long-standing policy of the Academy and Army Regulations.
    6. The practice of exclusive reliance upon radical progressive guest speakers to address the Corps of Cadets. This practice results in prejudiced political activism on the part of the Staff and Faculty in violation of Army Regulations.
    7. An explanation for the failure of the Superintendent to respond to correspondence inquiring about problems identified at the Academy.

The article explains the reason for the letter:

They believe that there is a rejection of the principles of the military academy which could endanger its original mission “to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the Nation as an officer in the United States Army.”

The U.S. military is not meant to be a social experiment. It is not supposed to be the forefront of social change–it is supposed to be the best example of military readiness and preparedness. The inclusion of Critical Race Theory in the curriculum of military academies does not promote unity in our military. It separates people out by groups and makes it more difficult for soldiers to work together. The generals who wrote the letter need to be commended for their actions.

When The Numbers Just Don’t Add Up

On Saturday, Sharyl Attkisson posted an article about the number of Covid-19 cases among military veterans who have been vaccinated.

The article reports:

Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) is demanding that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) prioritize Veteran care after learning of first-hand accounts from VA employees, who say Biden’s coercive vaccine mandates are causing VA workforce shortages, ultimately limiting care for veterans.

In response to these accounts, Johnson submitted a letter to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Denis McDonough stating the following:

On May 27, 2022, I met with a group of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) employees regarding their concerns with the quality of care received by veterans. These health care professionals described the significant workforce shortages at the VA facilities in Wisconsin and Michigan and that the vaccine mandate is only exacerbating these shortages. The VA owes the public and our veterans answers about the steps the Department is taking to address the workforce issues and to provide the highest quality care to the finest among us.” 

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin)

…Senator Johnson also presented whistleblower data he recently obtained demonstrating the ineffectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccines’ ability to prevent infection. 

“Based on whistleblower data from the Milwaukee VAMC facility dashboard census count between October 22, 2021 and March 8, 2022, for 31 of the 54 days I received daily reports, at least 80 percent of VA employees who tested positive for Covid-19 were vaccinated. For 8 of those 54 days, 100 percent of VA employees who tested positive for Covid-19 were vaccinated. 

The continuation of care for our veterans should be our top priority, not politically motivated policies like vaccine mandates.” 

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin)

A letter written to Denis R. McDonough, Secretary U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, by Senator Johnson included the following statement:

In addition to these testimonials, enclosed data from the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee (Milwaukee VAMC) reveals the failure of the vaccine mandate to protect VA employees and veterans from COVID-19.  Based on whistleblower data from the Milwaukee VAMC facility dashboard census count between October 22, 2021 and March 8, 2022, for 31 of the 54 days I received daily reports, at least 80 percent of VA employees who tested positive for COVID-19 were vaccinated.[4]  For 8 of those 54 days, 100 percent of VA employees who tested positive for COVID-19 were vaccinated.[5]

I think it’s time to reevaluate the effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine.

A Lawsuit I Am Glad To See

On Wednesday, The Epoch Times posted an article reporting that John Pierce Law has filed a lawsuit suiting eighteen major airlines contending that vaccine mandates were an infringement on their constitutional, religious, and medical liberties.

The article reports:

The lawsuit against Atlas Air was filed in federal court in the Southern District of Florida, with over 100 plaintiffs pursuing litigation.

“Fundamentally, this case is about whether Americans should be required to choose between their livelihoods and being coerced into taking an experimental, dangerous medical treatment,” reads the lawsuit (pdf).

Plaintiffs are mostly unvaccinated pilots, flight attendants, as well as other Atlas staff.

“It is also about the safety of America’s airline industry. Should pilots—under federal regulation required to be among the healthiest workers in the United States—who have taken an experimental ‘vaccine’ that is now shown to have potentially deadly, long-term side effects, be allowed to fly massive aircraft in our skies? While those who have (smartly) refrained from such a course be forced out of their jobs?” it states.

Atlas Air is one of the industry’s largest cargo carrier companies and the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 747 aircraft.

The law firm was founded by Att. John Pierce, who founded the National Constitutional Law Union. He previously represented George Papadopoulos in connection with the 2016 “Russia Hoax,” reaching a dismissal of the DNC’s case and helping secure a presidential pardon. He is also currently representing defendants being charged in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

The article notes:

Josh Yoder, a major airline pilot and a spokesperson for Freedom Flyers who recently supported the trucker-led “The People’s Convoy,” says that there has been harassment, threats, intimidation, vaccine injuries, and even “suicides that have come out of these mandates.”

“We’re not doing class action. We’re doing individual litigants. And the reason we’re doing it that way is because so many people have been harmed and people have experienced different levels of harm. We have the unvaccinated who have been harassed, threatened, and intimidated into getting vaccinated. Then we have many people as well who got vaccinated against their will, who were coerced and forced into doing it under threat of losing their employment,” Yoder said.

“And then, in addition, we have the vaccine-injured, and the numbers of vaccine-injured are growing by the day,” Yoder went on, “It’s just incredible what’s happening with pilots.”

Pilots have to maintain a flight physical in order to maintain their licenses.

The Epoch Times recently reported that a pilot for American Airlines, one of the top 3 largest airlines in the country, suffered a cardiac arrest between two flights, about 6 minutes after landing.

The article concludes:

According to a group of attorneys, doctors, and other experts—and a pilot who says his career ended due to adverse reactions from a vaccine—the FAA has been breaking its own rule that states pilots should not fly after having taken medications that have been approved for less than a year, The Epoch Times reported in December.

As more and more information comes out about the potential side-effects of the Covid vaccine, I suspect we will see more lawsuits like this one. I hope so.

Do They Get Their Jobs Back Now?

On Thursday, The Washington Times reported that the Senate voted Wednesday to end the vaccine mandate on health workers at places that receive federal funding. There is serious doubt as to whether the measure will actually get through the House of Representatives (which is controlled by the Democrats), although that may depend on whether or not the Democrats are reading the polls.

The article reports:

The Supreme Court struck down a broader mandate that required large companies to regularly test workers who refuse to get vaccinated. However, the justices upheld the health-worker mandate.

Republicans say the mandate is bad policy because it could lead to staffing shortages at hospitals and punish workers who served on the frontlines of the COVID-19 battle for two years and choose to remain unvaccinated.

The GOP is betting that forcing Democrats to defend COVID-19 mandates will help Republicans retake the House and the Senate in November’s elections.

One of the really sad aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic is that both political parties attempted to use to crisis for political gain. There was a time when both parties totally ignored the science. Now we are beginning to see that lives could have been saved if we had pursued early treatment as hard as we pursued a vaccine. We know now that early treatment works. We can’t say the same about the vaccines.

Americans are done with mask and vaccine mandates. I was recently told by a pulmonary specialist that when the masks come off we can expect an uptick in pneumonia cases–not because the masks were protecting us, but because wearing a mask interferes with your natural immunity system. After mask wearing, your immune system is not as strong as it would be without a mask, so you are more prone to illness. That’s not good news for the elderly who have been told to keep wearing their masks. Consider not wearing a mask to be like sending a child out to play in the dirt. The germs the child comes in contact with in playing in the dirt strengthen the child’s immune system. Walking around bare-faced exposes your immune system to germs and strengthens it. Also, the fibers in the mask are not close enough to each other to block virus germs. The masks were to make us feel better and to control us. Medically they were not helpful.

Vaccine Mandates Hit The Courts

NewsMax reported on Friday that U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown has issued a nationwide ruling Friday that President Joe Biden could not require federal employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The article reports:

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown said in his Friday order that at issue was whether the president “can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment.”

He added, “That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far.”

Brown, based in Galveston and appointed by President Donald Trump, said the government could protect public health with less invasive measures, such as masking and social distancing.

The Justice Department said it would appeal the ruling.

Where in the Constitution does it give the government the right to tell Americans that they have to inject something in their bodies that they may not think is helpful to their health? We are supposed to be a nation of laws governed by our Constitution. It’s time we actually followed those laws.

Does The Constitution Mean Anything To The Biden Administration?

Yesterday The Conservative Review posted an article about the Biden administration’s reaction to the Supreme Court decision to ban vaccine mandates on private companies of more than 100 people. The administration was obviously not pleased with the decision, but their actions following the decision indicate how little respect they have for the legal system of America.

The article reports:

President Joe Biden said Thursday that he will continue pushing private businesses to “do the right thing … and institute vaccination requirements” shortly after the Supreme Court blocked his vaccine-or-testing rule.

Biden, in a statement issued shortly after the court’s opinion, noted that “it is now up to States and individual employers to determine whether to make their workplaces as safe as possible for employees.” The Supreme Court blocked Biden’s 2021 rule, which required private businesses with 100+ employees to require workers to be vaccinated or test weekly, in a 6-3 vote.

The president called his knocked-down rule requiring employees to be vaccinated a “simple and effective step” against the pandemic. He took a defiant tone in his response to the ruling, noting that while his administration can’t “require the measure,” he can still use his “voice as President” for advocacy.

“The Court has ruled that my administration cannot use the authority granted to it by Congress to require this measure, but that does not stop me from using my voice as President to advocate for employers to do the right thing to protect Americans’ health and economy,” Biden said. “I call on business leaders to immediately join those who have already stepped up – including one third of Fortune 100 companies – and institute vaccination requirements to protect their workers, customers, and communities.”

You could fertilize your garden with this statement.

The article concludes:

While the president vowed to continue pressuring businesses to comply with the vaccine or testing rule, he also commended the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to reinstate his vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. This policy, also announced in 2021, requires any health care worker operating out of a facility that receives Medicaid and Medicare funding to be vaccinated, minus those who qualify for religious and medical exemptions.

Biden said the Supreme Court’s decision on this mandate “will save lives,” and he promised enforcement of the rule.

“It will cover 10.4 million health care workers at 76,000 medical facilities. We will enforce it,” Biden declared.

The government will now force people to inject something into their bodies that they do not want to inject. How is that compatible with freedom?

Coming To America?

The vaccine hysteria has gotten ridiculous. From the beginning, there has been no talk of the risks associated with the vaccine or the role of natural immunity. There has also been little talk of treatment for Covid. It’s simply been about forcing everyone to be vaccinated. It makes you wonder who owns the stock in the companies making the vaccines.

I have stated before that I hate Nazi Germany comparisons. However, history reports that initially store owners were told not to let Jews in their shops because Jews carried vermin. The Jewish people were hazardous to your health. How they managed to sell that idea I have no idea, but they succeeded in creating two separate classes of people–Jews and non-Jews. From there it was simply a matter of dehumanizing the Jews so that killing them seemed like doing everyone a favor. Listen to some of the statements by people in the Biden administration about the unvaccinated, and you hear something very close to that idea. If you think I need a tinfoil hat at this point, I would like to present the following news story.

On Tuesday, The Conservative Treehouse reported the following:

Starting in February, vaccination in Austria is compulsory for all citizens.  As a result, the Austrian government is now hiring “hunters” to track down the unvaccinated citizens and enforce compliance.  This is not a joke.

This is a screenshot of part of the article:

Please understand that forcing people to take an experimental vaccine has no place is a free society. Encouraging people to take a vaccine is acceptable, but creating two classes of citizens is not. Covid will probably be with us in some form for a long time. There is no guarantee that the current vaccines will protect against future variants. There is no guarantee that the current vaccines will protect against current variants. If you are going to force vaccines on people, you should also force a healthy diet, the end of smoking, and other health measures on people. With a little effort, you could spoil life for everyone.

According to the CDC:

Nothing kills more Americans than heart disease and stroke. More than 868,000 Americans die of heart disease or stroke every year—that’s one-third of all deaths. These diseases take an economic toll, as well, costing our health care system $214 billion per year and causing $138 billion in lost productivity on the job.3

Do you want the government telling you what you can eat and drink in order to cut the costs of healthcare in America? If the answer is no, then don’t support vaccine mandates.

Setting Up A Supreme Court Case

Before I go into the details of this Appeals Court ruling on vaccine mandates, I want to mention a few things about how our government is supposed to work.

The Tenth Amendment states:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

The vaccine mandates in question are not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution, nor has Congress passed any laws regarding the vaccine mandates. So the mandates are not law. Who in the government is making these mandates? Are the people making the mandates elected officials? Where do they get their right to make laws or mandates? If they are President Biden’s mandates, the President does not have the authority to make laws. OSHA does not have the authority to make laws. Does the federal government have the right to interfere in the business of a private company without a law being passed? Does a company have the right to know the health records of its employees?

Meanwhile, on Friday, Just the News reported the following:

A federal appeals court on Friday night reinstated President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private companies with more than 100 workers, reversing lower court rulings and setting up a likely showdown before the U.S. Supreme Court.

A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration had the authority to Impose the mandate due to take effect Jan. 4.

“Given OSHA’s clear and exercised authority to regulate viruses, OSHA necessarily has the authority to regulate infectious diseases that are not unique to the workplace,” the court conckuddd in its majority opinion.

Within an hour of the decision, the small business group Job Creators Network filed an appeal to the high court, saying the appeals judges “irresponsibly upheld an illegal rule.”

“This mandate adds an incredible burden on small business owners who are still suffering negative effects of the pandemic,” the group said. “This mandate will make it even harder for small business owners to find and keep employees.”

The ruling came after several challenges from GOP-led states and conservative and business groups were consolidated before the Cincinnati-based 6th circuit.

The article continues:

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge told The Associated Press she would immediately appeal to the Supreme Court.

“The Sixth Circuit’s decision is extremely disappointing for Arkansans because it will force them to get the shot or lose their jobs,” she said.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, tweeted he was confident the mandate would be blocked by the justices.

“We will go immediately to the Supreme Court- the highest court in the land- to fight this unconstitutional and illegal mandate,” he said. “The law must be followed and federal abuse of power stopped.”

Stay tuned.

The Fight For American Freedom

On Saturday The Epoch Times reported the following:

The Sixth Circuit Court has denied the federal government’s motion to transfer the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine-or-test requirement lawsuit to a different court, while also rejecting the White House’s bid to dissolve a stay on the mandate, delivering a blow to the Biden administration’s efforts to press ahead with implementation.

In a Dec. 3 ruling, the Sixth Circuit Court denied the government’s motion to transfer the case to the Fifth Circuit and the D.C. Circuit, while also rejecting as “moot” the Biden administration’s attempt to overturn a hold on the mandate.

OSHA on Nov. 5 published an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) that would require private employers with 100 or more employees to impose a mandatory COVID-19 vaccinate-or-test policy. Under the rule, unvaccinated workers would also have to wear masks inside the workplace, with violators facing potential penalties of thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars per incident.

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, also known as SARS-CoV-2 or the novel coronavirus.

After the OSHA rule was published, it triggered a torrent of lawsuits from Republican-led states, individuals, and businesses.

Those lawsuits were consolidated, and the 6th Circuit Court was selected by lottery to hear the case. The 6th Circuit Court includes 11 out of 16 judges who are Republican appointees.

The article notes:

The Biden administration then filed a motion on Nov. 23 to lift the Fifth Circuit’s stay on the mandate and get the case moved to a potentially more favorable court.

The Sixth Circuit Court’s Dec. 3 ruling denied both requests.

Rob Natelson, a former constitutional law professor, wrote in a recent op-ed for The Epoch Times that it’s likely the legal challenge to the OSHA rule will end up before the Supreme Court.

…The Fifth Circuit ruling described the OSHA rule as “fatally flawed” and said that the mandate would likely be declared unconstitutional.

In its Nov. 23 filing, the Biden administration argued that the Fifth Circuit panel erroneously interpreted the OSHA mandate, saying that “the speculative compliance costs and similar harms asserted by regulated parties cannot overcome the extraordinary harms to the public interest detailed above.”

“Simply put, delaying the standard would likely cost many lives per day, in addition to large numbers of hospitalizations, other serious health effects, and tremendous expenses,” White House lawyers alleged in the filing. “That is a confluence of harms of the highest order.”

Keep in mind that there is a lot of information coming out calling into question the effectiveness of the vaccine. If we are not sure the vaccine works against the current variations of the coronavirus, how does a vaccine mandate make sense? Is this about science or is this about control?

 

Promises Made, Promises Broken

Remember when President Biden and other politicians promised that there would never be vaccine mandates or vaccine  passports? At this point that’s just a memory. WGBH, Boston’s public broadcasting station, reported yesterday that Massachusetts Governor Baker, who claims to be a Republican, expects a state-sanctioned COVID-19 vaccination passport program to be implemented in Massachusetts and several other states soon. Is anyone surprised?

The article reports:

During an appearance on GBH News’ Boston Public Radio, Baker said a scannable quick response code, commonly known as a QR code, would show a person’s vaccination status and be made available for others to scan and verify.

“It’s a universal standard and we’ve been working with a bunch of other states, there’s probably 15 or 20 of them, to try to create a single QR code that can be used for all sorts of things where people may choose to require a vaccine,” Baker said of the passport program.

Baker showed hosts Margery Eagan and Jim Braude his code while in the GBH’s studios in Brighton.

“It’s my proof that I’ve been vaccinated,” he said.

Last week, new Boston Mayor Michelle Wu hinted that the city may implement a vaccine mandate for indoor recreation areas.

Baker defended the availability of COVID booster shots in the state, saying Massachusetts is providing around 55,000 total vaccination shots per day, including boosters, and has administered around 1 million booster shots. Baker compared that figure to the 80,000 doses the state was outputting last spring at the height of the vaccination push with the help of mass vaccination centers.

Baker said booster vaccines are available, but may not be in the most convenient locations for everyone.

“Now, they may not be in the place somebody wants to go to get one. And it may be a week or 10 days out or two weeks out before they can get one. But given the fact that we have far more demand now that we had a couple of weeks ago, we’re going to see if we can increase our capacity to do more,” Baker said.

This is not the freedom our Founding Fathers fought for.

Taking A Stand

This was the scene outside Carolina East Health Medical Center in New Bern, North Carolina, at about 8 o’clock this morning:

The event was a “STAND 4 MEDICAL FREEDOM/OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS DESERVE BETTER” demonstration. The people protesting were not against the coronavirus vaccine–I am sure many of them were vaccinated. However, all of us were protesting the idea that an employer can force an employee to get a shot that has not yet been fully tested. For those who argue that the shot is fully tested, please consider that the shot has only been in existence for about a year. How do we know what the long-term effects are?

There were about eighty people who attended the demonstration. The cars passing by were waving and giving thumbs up to show their support.

Demanding the shot is an affront to personal freedom. Demanding the shot with the threat of firing when hospitals are short-staffed to begin with is simply unwise.

Another thing to be aware of–America is the only country in the world that does not recognize the natural immunity of those who have recovered from the coronavirus as protective. This defies all previous science. It also defies the statistics coming from some of the most highly-vaccinated countries.

Get the vaccine if you choose, but don’t think it is your right to force others to get the vaccine. The unvaccinated are no more likely to spread the coronavirus than the vaccinated. The only thing the vaccine currently claims to do is to ensure that you will have a milder case if you get the virus, and even that is being questioned by many doctors.

Freedom is the foundation of this country. Let’s not give it away.

 

A Lottery With Good Results

Yesterday The Epoch Times posted an article about the lawsuit challenging vaccine mandates.

The article reports:

An appeals court dominated by Republican-nominated judges was chosen at random Tuesday to deal with the flurry of lawsuits against the Biden administration’s private business COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit was the winner of a lottery that was triggered by multiple appeals courts receiving challenges to the mandate, which was promulgated at the behest of President Joe Biden and would affect every business with 100 or more workers if it’s allowed to take effect.

Thirty-four petitions for review, or suits, were filed against the mandate. At least one petition was filed in every single court of appeals in the nation.

Federal law says that challenges to a rule in multiple appeals courts shall lead to a lottery, from which one court is picked. That court then handles the cases, which are consolidated.

The article concludes:

Plaintiffs argue the mandate is outside the authority of the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which issued it earlier this month. They say the Biden administration failed to explain why such a mandate is needed now, when the COVID-19 pandemic started in March 2020 and vaccines have been available since late last year.

“This mandate represents the greatest overreach by the federal government in a generation. It is illegal and unconstitutional and we are committed to ensuring it never sees the light of day,” Patrick Hughes, president and co-founder of the Liberty Justice Center, and one of the lawyers fighting the mandate, said in a recent statement.

Biden administration officials have defended the vaccination requirement, arguing OSHA can impose measures to keep workers safe.

“If OSHA can tell people to wear a hard hat on the job, to be careful around chemicals, it can put in place these simple measures to keep our workers safe,” Ron Klain, the White House chief of staff, said on NBC over the weekend.

Please do some research on the FDA approval of the vaccines currently being given. There are some serious questions as to exactly what was approved versus what is being administered.

States vs. The Federal Government

Just the News reported  yesterday that twenty-seven states have joined the lawsuit filed against the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate.

The article reports:

The mandate, which is being enforced by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), will require employers to ensure all their employees are either vaccinated by Jan. 4 or are tested weekly and wearing masks. If the businesses do not follow the mandate, they could face fines of up to $14,000 per violation.

All but one of the states that filed lawsuits, Iowa, have Republican attorneys general. Kansas, Kentucky, and Louisiana are the only three of the 27 states that have Democratic governors, and Iowa’s governor is a Republican.

Kansas Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly criticized President Biden’s vaccine mandate on private businesses on Friday, saying, “While I appreciate the intention to keep people safe, a goal I share, I don’t believe this directive is the correct, or the most effective, solution for Kansas.”

It is interesting that the push for vaccine mandates is occurring as the rate of infection from the coronavirus is slowing. In most parts of the country both the number of people contracting the virus and the number of people dying from the virus are decreasing.

The article lists the courts involved in the various cases:

Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah all joined a lawsuit in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, which issued a temporary block on the vaccine mandate, citing the potentially “grave statutory and constitutional issues” raised by the plaintiffs. South Carolina is under the jurisdiction of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, and Utah is under the 10th Circuit.

Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia jointly filed their lawsuit in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Idaho is under the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Kansas and Oklahoma are under the 10th Circuit, and West Virginia is under the 4th Circuit.

Indiana has announced that it is filing its suit in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming have filed their lawsuit in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. Alaska, Arizona, and Montana are under the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, New Hampshire is under the 2nd Circuit, and Wyoming is under the 10th Circuit.

Alabama, Florida, and Georgia are suing the Biden administration in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

It will be interesting to see how many of these courts reach the same conclusion.

Florida Leads The Way–Again

Yesterday NewsMax reported that Florida is suing several government agencies over vaccine mandates.

The article reports:

Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state of Florida sued President Joe Biden, NASA, and other government agencies over the “unlawful” COVID-19 vaccine mandates that require federal contractors to get vaccinated, and “threaten” the state’s economy.

Biden early last month announced plans to impose vaccine mandates on federal employees and businesses with 100 or more employees. Unvaccinated workers must get tested regularly.

The Republican governor and state Attorney General Ashley Moody filed the lawsuit, first reported by Fox News, against Biden, NASA, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, and officials within the White House Office of Management and Budget, and the Department of Defense over the vaccine mandates.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday morning in U.S. District Court in the middle district of Florida’s Tampa division, Bloomberg News reports.

The article concludes:

“Let’s not have Biden come in and effectively take away — threaten to take away — the jobs of people who have been working hard throughout this entire pandemic,” DeSantis said during a news conference in Fort Myers. “I am offended that a police officer could potentially lose their job.”

The governor last week said he would call together a special session of the Florida legislature to ban COVID-19 vaccine mandates on businesses.

Florida previously sued the Biden administration over its “illegal” catch-and-release policies at the U.S.-Mexico border. The lawsuit says the administration’s policies force Florida to “incur millions of dollars in expenses” as a result of migrants being relocated to the state.

Covid cases and deaths are winding down. Unfortunately the government power grabs that took place during the pandemic are not winding down. We need more governors willing to stand up for Americans and their freedom to earn a living.
