On Wednesday, The Conservative Treehouse reported that OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has announced that they will not attempt to enforce their vaccine mandate. Oddly enough, this happened right after the Fifth Circuit (New Orleans, LA) order a stay on the vaccine requirement.
The article reports:
The Biden Department of Labor cannot win in court over their use of OSHA to force mandated vaccines. The effort to use an OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) did not and will not survive judicial scrutiny.
The exemptions alone nullify the claims the ETS is built upon, and the courts are recognizing the brutally obvious political nature of the vaccine mandate effort.
…While the 5th circuit case from Louisiana was the first, there are 11 total circuit court cases holding the same challenges. As a result, the cases were consolidated and assigned to one circuit court chosen randomly via lottery.
The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio, won the lottery to hear the legal challenges. “The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is known to lean conservative, with most of its judges appointed by Republican presidents.” The 6th Circuit will have to decide whether or not to lift or maintain the stay instituted by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans.
However, don’t get too comfortable thinking this will be the end of the vaccine mandates. It is already being reported that the Biden administration is encouraging companies to enforce the vaccine mandate even if the government does not. Hopefully the courts will stand firm on this and Americans will continue to enjoy all of the freedoms protected by our Constitution.
