6th circuit dissolves the stay on the OSHA vaccine mandate
judicial activism and legislation from the bench turns ugly (again)
this ruling is, frankly, trash.
it’s rooted in politics, pseudoscience, and outright hallucination.
you can read the whole thing HERE, but really you need not read much past the first page of the opinion.
it’s such a bizarre, narrative driven misstatement of facts and reality and shows such a wild miscalibration on this issue and lack of currency with the basic facts wrapped in such stunningly self refuting logic that one really need read no further.
this is another hatchet job from an activist judiciary seeking not to apply law but to decide, in lieu of the people or legislatures, on the state of america and to force what is best for it upon it.
this court is literally taking it upon itself to determine that a “new normal” will pertain in perpetuity.
but don’t take my word for it. read the words of judge jane and decide for yourself:
there are so many fallacies, misstatements, and overreaches just in this first paragraph as to beggar belief.
800,000 deaths is a silly number. if you counted every death where anyone has a positive PCR at 40Ct for flu or pneumonia while running over a million tests a day looking for them, we’d have a flu death count that looked like that most years.
it was not “the pandemic” that shut down workplaces and the economy. it was “the pandemic response.” none of this needed to happen. had we literally done NOTHING, never noticed this, never named it, and never implemented a testing regimen so ill conceived and out of proportion as to be literally unique in the annals of all of human history, this would have passed barely remarked upon as “huh, that was a crummy flu year.” there would have been no economic damage. that was entirely self-inflicted, entirely avoidable, and known to be useless before we undertook it.
despite access to vaccines and testing, the virus “rages on”? i mean, firstly, control your histrionics. secondly, then seemingly these things are not working and thus mandating them seems deeply questionable. and thirdly, many, many places stopped mandating any and all of this a year ago and have shown no ill effects as a result while seeing their economies return, proving once more that it is not the pandemic but rather the pretense of crisis that has hamstrung the economy. this is abundantly clear in the data. covid mitigations do not protect economies, they ransack them.
then we get to the real doozie: “old normal is not going to return.” um, pardon my french, but who in the flaming spheroids of jupiter granted this court either standing or competence to make such a choice for the rest of us as though the rest of human history has not been characterized by the spread of communicable diseases far more dangerous than this one? to do so represents staggering hubris and presumption of conclusion on facts not only not in evidence, but contradicted BY the evidence. this vaults to the realm of “self fulfilling prophesy.” the return to normal is not impeded by the pandemic, but rather by jumped up officialdom aided and abetted by the likes of judge jane who has now demonstrated a lack of currency with not just the facts and science, but the staggering ego to render judgement upon us all based upon that incomprehension and the entitlement to see it as her judicial purview.
she then veers into outright hallucination, which, amusingly, rapidly turns self refuting. she frames the issue as “employers and employees needed guidance and turned to noble OSHA.” this is, of course, false. mostly (and perhaps entirely) they did not. OSHA dropped this on them from the top down, by diktat, and did so because the president of the US required them to. jane is playing awfully fast and lose with the facts and presuming to know the minds and motivation of the companies and workers of america. (objection, hearsay?)
but this is where it gets interesting: if we take jane at her word, then why do we need a mandate? if the companies and workers want this, asked for it, and were actively seeking it out, then why must this be anything more than a voluntary guideline? why must it be coercive? after all, one need not force willing people to do things. one only needs to apply such coercion when people are unwilling. thus, jane has forked herself: if these guidelines are really desired by workers and workplaces, then they need not be mandated. if they are not, then the basis for her mandate in the “consent of the governed” is demolished. checkmate, janey.
“historically unprecedented virus” provides another example of the poor grounding and calibration this court possesses on this issue. it is nothing of the sort. a virus worse that this “raged” through america they year we held woodstock. few even remember it.
vaxx or test constantly, be subject to all manner of discrimination, false positives, work uncertainly, and be forced to wear masks literally proven to do nothing as both punishment and markers of "othering” and subjugation. this is literal jim crow law. “negroes who get vaccinated can sit at the front of the bus?” seriously?
and nowhere in any of this miasma of fiction and overreach is the phrase “natural immunity” even mentioned despite the overwhelming evidence that it and NOT vaccines is what stops spread and stops contagion. ignoring such is the antithesis of science, following the data, and epidemiology.
whew. and that was literally just the intro.
this is just the next salvo in an internally inconsistent authoritarian campaign of overreach and interference.
they who ARE the crisis are seeking to shift blame to those who want them to stop.
this is not the disease doing this, it’s the governments. it is not pandemic that shuttered the world, it’s misbegotten pandemic response.
surely, after all that has happened since “2 weeks to flatten the curve” began, none can be fool enough to think that any of this is temporary and/or represents a measured, transitory response and not the thin end of an unending wedge.
it’s oppression by inches, the one way ratchet of subjugation sold as safety.
it’s LONG past time we stopped playing along. it’s time for open revolt from states, cities, towns, and individuals.
it’s time to pull out of OSHA, an organization that was likely long past its use anyhow.
it’s time to roll back and terminate most of these health and safety agencies.
have you noticed that they have, throughout, been the vanguard of rights taking and primary progenitors of fabricated pretext having done so?
NIH, CDC, health boards… wait until you see what these folks want to do with the EPA. go re-read that opinion and swap in “climate change” for “pandemic.”
they get sold as “protection”, but end up as the agents of tyranny.
it was they who came and closed your restaurants and gyms and schools. they are the enforcement arm of and the justification machinery for these outlandish executive orders and of the new world orders that the grand planners have in store for us. and, as they are appointed by these very executives, is it any wonder they move in such cultivated lockstep?
it’s time they were curtailed.
they are not on your side. they probably never were.
