Joe Biden’s losing streak shows no sign of stopping.
The latest setback came in one fight that Biden cannot afford a defeat.
And Joe Biden lost a huge court case that left Democrats fearing for the worst.
Justices on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals smacked down Biden’s federal vaccine mandate by extending a stay blocking the rule from taking effect.
The justices ruled that the Biden administration relied in an unending “emergency” to impose a power grab far outside the legal authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
“The Mandate’s stated impetus—a purported ‘emergency’ that the entire globe has now endured for nearly two years, and which OSHA itself spent nearly two months responding to—is unavailing as well. And its promulgation grossly exceeds OSHA’s statutory authority,” the justices wrote.
The Fifth Circuit also slammed the federal vaccine mandate as “staggeringly overbroad” and made no exceptions for natural immunity or took into account the different risk calculations for various sectors of the American economy.
“The Mandate is staggeringly overbroad. Applying to 2 out of 3 private-sector employees in America, in workplaces as diverse as the country itself, the Mandate fails to consider what is perhaps the most salient fact of all: the ongoing threat of COVID-19 is more dangerous to some employees than to other employees,” the justices added.
Biden hoped the federal vaccine mandate would serve as both the turnaround for his slumping poll numbers and the opportunity to seize near unlimited power to control Americans bodies.
Now it looks like Joe Biden is headed for a massive legal defeat.
When Biden issued the vaccine mandate, conservatives declared it unconstitutional and predicted the courts would strike down the workplace vaccine requirement.
And that is exactly what happened.
This is now the second time Biden imposed a blatantly illegal order – the national eviction moratorium being the first – solidifying the image of Biden as a lawless rogue operating in the Oval Office.
