US Federal Court Freezes Biden-Harris Vaccine Diktat: “It’s Grossly Unconstitutional”

Federal court freezes biden's vaccine mandate

In a devastating blow to the Biden administration, a federal appeals court on Saturday blocked Joe Biden’s “unconstitutional” vaccine mandate, just two days after Biden illegally issued the rule through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

The illegal Biden order required employees at companies with 100 or more workers to get the Covid vaccine by Jan. 4 or be tested for the virus weekly to avoid being issued crippling fines.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay, freezing President Biden’s controversial mandate.

The court’s decision came in response to a joint petition from entities in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah. reports: “Yesterday, I sued the Biden Admin over its unlawful OSHA vax mandate,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tweeted on Saturday. “WE WON. Just this morning, citing ‘grave statutory and constitutional issues,’ the 5th Circuit stayed the mandate. The fight is not over and I will never stop resisting this Admin’s unconstitutional overreach!”

“Because the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate, the Mandate is hereby stayed pending further action by this court,” the judges wrote.

The ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit comes after at least two dozen state attorneys general threatened to sue the administration for federal overreach.

“Courts are skeptical because the law demands it,” the attorneys general wrote in a letter to Biden in September. “To justify an emergency temporary standard, OSHA must determine that ‘employees are exposed to grave danger from exposure to substances or agents determined to be toxic or physically harmful or from new hazards…’ and it must conclude that ‘such emergency standard is necessary to protect employees from such danger.’ You cannot plausibly meet the high burden of showing that employees in general are in grave danger.”

Although the Solicitor of Labor Seema Nanda said the Labor Department was “confident in its legal authority” to issue the OSHA-enforced vaccine mandate, Republican-led groups have been questioning and denying its legality since it was implemented on Nov. 4.

“The Occupational Safety and Health Act explicitly gives OSHA the authority to act quickly in an emergency where the agency finds that workers are subjected to a grave danger and a new standard is necessary to protect them,” Nanda said in a statement. “We are fully prepared to defend this standard in court.”

The ruling is the first win against OSHA, but many Republicans are also fighting the mandate in court, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“The federal government can’t just unilaterally impose medical policy under the guise of workplace regulation,” DeSantis said on Thursday.

The mandate applies to more than 80 million workers who face coerced compliance or unemployment. An estimated 31.7 million of those workers are unvaccinated and will be forced to choose the jab or their jobs come January. Millions of health care workers participating in Medicare and Medicaid are required to get their shots by January with no option for weekly testing. Private businesses that don’t comply with OSHA’s controversial rule could face a fine of over $130,000.


  1. Gotta save that holiday shopping and the continued fleecing of the people, then they will enforce their tyrrany. They will not let the not so great re-set go away that easily. The beast wants power!

  2. TPTB Must get practically everyone JABBED and soon. The reason being is that the health and well-being of the Jabbed VS the not-Jabbed is being carefully scrutinized and months of data on millions of people are flowing in. The results are not good for the Jab promoters. The Not-Jabbed constitute the Control or Placebo group in the experiment.. If they are made to take the Jab there is no Control group.

  3. Wonderful how quickly this was ruled unlawful after many millions have already been jabbed and persecuted for resisting! This government is so frigging slow, we could be at war years before anyone knows about it.
