Completely usurping the legislative branch, the Biden White House is encouraging business to ignore a court order that prevented his administration from implementing forced vaccinations on millions of Americans.
On Monday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters: “People should not wait,” for the court to decide whether or not Biden’s illegal vaccine mandate will proceed, and to require employee vaccinations anyway.
This past September, President Biden announced that the OSHA will mandate that private companies with 100 or more employees implement vaccine requirements or require weekly negative tests. The president waited nearly two months before releasing the details of his plan, which would not have even taken effect until January of 2022. A company in violation of the mandate could be fined $136,532.
The president’s plan encountered a roadblock on Saturday when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Court issued a temporary stay blocking the mandate while considering a permanent injunction.
The ruling from a three-judge panel resulted from a stay sought by the states of Texas, Utah, Mississippi, and South Carolina, as well as several businesses that oppose the Biden plan. The states and businesses filed a petition of review of the agency action, which goes directly to a federal appeals court instead of a one-judge federal district trial court.
Republican attorneys general in 26 states have filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration in five different appeals courts. David Vladeck, a professor of law at Georgetown University, told CNBC that the lawsuits have a “high probability” of reaching the Supreme Court, which may or not rule in the administration’s favor.
This mandate, if allowed to go into effect, will destroy Biden’s presidency. Just wait until one vital industry after another bottlenecks or shuts down. It’s impossible to fire so many workers without major consequences. Kiss of death for Biden and the Ds. https://t.co/hEBkSryIE2

If allowed to proceed, Biden’s vaccine mandate will have economic effects the likes of which the U.S. has never seen. Employees will vacate en masse causing a labor shortage and further supply chain problems.
The Biden administration was full aware of this possibility; it’s almost as if they prefer the decimation of American businesses to appease corporate giants that have become Democrats’ largest donors.
