Joe Biden’s administration showed up at the Supreme Court for a major showdown.
It did not go well.
Clarence Thomas had some bad news that Joe Biden is going to really hate.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Joe Biden’s tyrannical and un-American federal vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees.
Biden’s federal vaccine requirement is set to take effect soon and the justices were confronted with the questioning of enjoining a stay to block the federal rule threatening Americans’ jobs over not taking the vaccine.
The six conservative justices also sounded varying degrees of skepticism toward the administration’s arguments that Biden’s federal vaccine scheme passed constitutional muster.
Justice Clarence Thomas slammed the administration for claiming the Occupational Safety and Health Administration could bypass the normal notice and comment period and instead directly impose the mandate.
“The vaccine’s been around quite some time. Covid’s been around even longer,” Thomas added, “The government could have had notice and comment.”
The administration also dubiously claimed emergency powers to impose the mandate.
However, Joe Biden announced the requirement in September, did not announce the implementation policy until November and then delayed implementation to January.
It strains credulity to believe the administration can claim the situation is so dire that it requires a four-month waiting period between the announcement of the policy and the implementation.
Even left-wing Chief Justice John Roberts sounded skeptical toward the administration’s unprecedented vaccine mandate.
“This is something the federal government has never done before,” the chief justice stated.
Chief Justice Roberts added that Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in 1970 which was closer to the Spanish Flu than it is now meaning whether Congress intended to grant OSHA the authority to impose a federal vaccine mandate.
“That was 50 years ago that Congress acted,” Chief Justice Roberts added. “I don’t think it had Covid in mind. That was almost closer to the Spanish flu than to today’s problem.”
If Joe Biden gets away with the greatest power grab in American history there is no telling the rights Biden can now shred.
That’s because the administration acknowledges no limiting principle on this matter.
Liberals already want to declare gun violence and so-called “climate change” as alleged public health emergencies.
If the Supreme Court allows this authoritarian vaccine mandate to slide through Joe Biden could declare firearm violence and climate emergencies.
Under that scenario Biden could then impose massive new gun control and the Marxist Green New Deal through executive fiat.
But fortunately, enough justices on the Supreme Court adopted a skeptical posture towards Biden’s vaccine mandate and appear ready to strike it down.
