Texas Federal Judge Blocks Enforcement of Wrong-Way Brandon's Mandate for Federal Employees

Previously his OSHA mandate was struck down by the Supreme Court.

His mandate on federal contractors has been enjoined by an appeals court since December 7th. That will be reviewed by the Sixth Circuit, I think, and ultimately by the Supreme Court.

He did prevail, at least for now, as far as mandating that nurses and other workers in facilities taking money from Medicare and Medicaid must be vaccinated.

Now a Texas district federal court judge enjoins enforcement on his declaration that all federal employees -- not contractors, but actual government workers -- must be vaccinated.

Judge Jeffrey Brown, who was appointed by former President Trump, wrote that the order exceeded the president's authority.

The case is about "whether the President can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment," Brown wrote.


The Department of Justice immediately said it would appeal.

The order comes after the Supreme Court earlier this month blocked Biden's mandate that employees at businesses with 100 or more workers get vaccinated or regularly tested, while upholding the vaccination mandate for health care workers.

The federal government's power to mandate vaccination for its own employees is thought to be on stronger legal footing, though Friday's ruling underscores the ongoing nature of the dispute.

"I'm sorry, but this is just insane," Steve Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas, wrote on Twitter. "The federal government lacks the power to require its *own* employees to be vaccinated?"

Yes, but your employer does not have the right of Medical Prima Nochtae over you, which leftwing professors would grasp if a conservative president mandated, say, that all female government workers not get abortions or whatever.

And the president's power to order about the bureaucracy is limited by the powers actually given to him by Congress. And Congress has not given him this power.

Brandon does what he has repeatedly done, which is to claim that very nebulous language, like laws that say the president can prescribe rules of "conduct" for the civil service, of course must be taken to mean "require vaccinations."

I saw a commentator, I forget who, maybe Brit Hume, maybe Jonathan Turley, note that Presidents and their attorneys are usually mindful not just about the personal price of losing on their claims of presidential power, but about the historic price of losing on claims of presidential power for all future presidents. And so that most presidents do not roll the dice and say "YOLO" on very dubious, weak claims of power, knowing that in all likelihood the courts will say "No" and put up a firm limit on presidential power.

Brandon doesn't roll that way, obviously. His presidency is not just disastrous for the nation's current citizenry, but for all future occupants of the White House. This small, nasty, weak little man is enfeebling the office of the presidency for all future presidents out of pique and senility-caused anger.

I mean, this, for example, is just stupid:

Screenshot (1325).png

There are areas in which the President's inherent Article 2 powers are inherently strong, areas in which the president is specifically named by the Constitution as having a unique role, areas in which logic and circumstances tell us he has a unique role -- commanding the armed forces, acting as the chief diplomatic officer of the US, stuff like that -- but anything that involves stuff that are easily legislated, and usually are legislated -- like requiring vaccination, or granting the power to require vaccinations -- are just not areas for asserting some previously-invisible font of Article 2 power.

Again, a weak, bullshit, YOLO "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" argument by Brandon that diminishes the office.

All future presidents will inhabit a presidency diminished by this much-diminished man.

Maybe...this is a good thing?

The presidency is FAR too powerful now. The imperial presidency is a concept not by accident.

I was kind of hoping that part of the establishment hating Trump would be a curtailing of the administrative powers of the executive branch, but pretty much everyone below the president was on the same side as the establishment. The fight became to hobble Trump, not his administration. I wanted Congress to reassert its power to exclusively make law, but they never did.

Maybe this is another form of what I wanted.

The SCOTUS opinion on the medical employees mandate is a mess. They couldn't find an express grant of authority for Congress for this either, but instead pointed to the multitude of other rules passed by CMS (what the dissent referred to as a "hodgepodge") to infer that CMS would have the authority to require vaccinations as well.

110 There was a logic to the SCOTUS hospital ruling. Basically, they said providers that want Medicare funding already have to meet a bunch of federally imposed standards regarding cleanliness and disease spread ... so tacking on vaccine mandate not any sort of new KIND of rule.

So, this will probably turn on whether fed employment every previously required vaccinations. Sorry, soldiers/sailors and probably VA hospital staff(?) and I don't know for sure about run-o-the-mill bureaucrats, but I'd guess they'll be ok since they don't usually check vaccination status for office jobs.

111 Brandon doesn't roll that way, obviously. His presidency is not just disastrous for the nation's current citizenry, but for all future occupants of the White House. This small, nasty, weak little man is enfeebling the office of the presidency for all future presidents out of pique and senility-caused anger.

I think that the Constitutional Republic is pretty well dead, what we see right now is some faint twitchings in the form of there being a vague set of roles and offices that through custom shadow some of the concepts laid out in the Constitution.

In short, there won't be a formal Presidency much longer. Obama proved that you don't even have to be a natural born citizen, Biden proved that you don't even have to be elected. Trump proved that no one in the Regulatory Branch (now a Real Thing) has to follow any executive order with fear of consequences. Even the military can ignore the Commander in Chief and interact more openly with our Enemies' leadership.

The State Department proved that foreign policy is really held by the sinecures and career bureaucrats. So there really is no functioning role. The President is more like UK's Royalty now.

I think that courts should be careful about this.

If this were ebola or some ghastly thing with a huge death rate, and if there were an actual VACCINE that granted virtual immunity to the disease; okay I can buy requiring people to get a shot in certain areas directly controlled by the federal government.

The problem is that the state cannot demonstrate a great enough need and an effective enough treatment. There's neither the emergency required, nor the solution valid enough to require it.

THat is a good question. I did buy a lot of Louis L'Amour books for just that reason (Also because they're vivid, even if the endings are sorta random). I've only read a few Zane Grey novels though, so this would maybe be a way to really get immersed in his stuff.

In that event it wouldn't be necessary because the brave heroes' union would be demanding they get a place at the head of the jab line. The reason the mandate is an issue (the motivation for the suit) is that everyone who is currently unjabbed wants to stay that way.

I think the key to their thinking is in the word "own". As in who owns you? Clearly the Establishment sees castes of chattel - such as employees - and castes of free people (illegal aliens).

The question quite frankly comes down to: Does your employer enjoy the "right" to jam anything they want into your body, as much as they want, for as long as they want and not be responsible for any consequences? What specifically are those conditions where an employee is considered chattel?

Is this in any way compatible with We The People and Consent of the Governed?

That said, it's not just YOLO. The Brandon administration is nigh to the apoltheosis of Wilsonian technocratic progressivism. The people making these decisions and forwarding these argument quite legitimately do not believe there is or should be any constraints on the Executive's authority. From that persepctive, it all makes sense. Also the shrieking fury when others refuse to accept that premise. It's been a century to get here and the prize is nigh to hand.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists kept the Doomsday Clock at 100 seconds to midnight for the third year in a row. The clock, which metaphorically counts the time until the end of the world, remains at the closest point it has ever been to midnight -- and one of the group's leaders warned, "Steady is not good news."

The unchanged time "reflects the judgment of the board that we are stuck in a perilous moment that brings neither stability nor security," said Sharon Squassoni, a professor at George Washington University and co-chair of the bulletin's science and security board.

The announcement, made Thursday at a virtual news conference, marked the 75th anniversary of the symbolic timepiece. Since it was created, the clock has wavered between 100 seconds at its closest point and 17 minutes to midnight.

In determining the clock's timing, the bulletin traditionally focused on the availability of nuclear weapons and the potential for world powers to use them. In recent years, it has expressed growing concern about the effects of climate change on the planet, as well as the spread of disinformation.

His take on the attack is the FBI has been so focused on trying to justify an "American terrorism is a grand threat" stance, they've been ignoring this group which is rising in the US and is already implicated in attacks around the world.

303 With Ebola they did "order" exposed people to quarantine (iirc), and one doctor flouted that and was out and about.
But a forced quarantine of known exposed persons, likely carriers of a deadly disease, is still not the same as forcing an briefly tested (results hidden) vaccine which could have long term damages.
And I'm not even sure if there was any law forcing the quarantine. I guess Andromeda Strain or pandemic movies have military close town whole towns ... but again, not forcing a medical procedure.

321 With Ebola they did "order" exposed people to quarantine (iirc), and one doctor flouted that and was out and about.

IIRC the "ebola nurse" who apparently really hated being called that was told to quarantine by some health org or other.

She told them she wasn't sick and they could get stuffed. The FNM asked Obama and the state governor about it and both said the government had NO authority to enforce quarantine.

Launch of a Wooden Satellite Still Pending

The satellite's development team, comprised of Kyoto University and Sumitomo Forestry Company, said it's aiming to harness the environmental friendliness and the economy of wood in spacecraft development. They say a satellite with a wooden exterior would burn up upon re-entering Earth's atmosphere at the end of its mission, lessening its burden on the environment. The wooden framework also will permit the satellite's antennas to be inside the spacecraft. A plan is under way to use an experimental apparatus on the International Space Station to hold wooden sheets of varying hardness, taken from several tree species, attached. These would remain exposed to the space environment for about 9 months to determine their deterioration.

359 This has probably been mentioned below - but SCOTUS only granted the stay to the previous lower court decision to deny the implementation of the mandate. They have not taken up the merits of this case.

All the empty crowing by lefties that nurses must get vaxx'd or they'll can never work in the profession is just that - empty crowing.

Usually granting a portion of a challenged executive order to proceed until the case is heard means that the executive order will succeed. But now that a Texas federal Judge has come out and definitively said that federal workers (and by default - those who receive federal tax dollars) aren't required to comply - this ruling hamstrings idiots like Kavanaugh immensely. He has to say how a lower Federal court got it wrong, specifically on the merits. I don't think he has the brain power and just punts.

368 With regard to the "perfesser" who is amazed that Brandon can't require all federal employees to be vaxxed on his own naked (yuck) authority, you know how it would have worked if Trump were still President and he made such a mandatory vaccination order. The "resistance" would say it is completely illegal and it would be a badge of honor to resist "Trump's Vaccine." The "science" would say there is no proof the vaccine works etc. etc. That would be in the saner "Bearded Spock" universe where Trump had prevailed.

394 'this ruling hamstrings idiots like Kavanaugh immensely. He has to say how a lower Federal court got it wrong, specifically on the merits. I don't think he has the brain power and just punts'

Assuming the decision is upheld by the 5th circuit and taken up by SCOTUS, I think it comes down to the dynamics of Roberts-Kavanaugh. They seem to be forming a duo, with Kavanaugh angling to play the role of Anthony Kennedy, in which Roberts pulls the strings.

I'm speaking hypothetically, of course, but the notion would be that the US engages in brinksmanship but then "unexpectedly" backs down to the surprise of all the WH staff.

A lame, face-saving effort is undertaken (like with 'minor incursion') but the damage is done.

413 Triple Vaccinated are developing Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome at an alarming rate according to [UK] Government data

DailyExposeUK

https://tinyurl.com/2p82jcr7

The week 37 Vaccine Surveillance report included the number of Covid-19 cases by vaccination status between week 33 and week 36 of 2021 (August 16th to September 12th). Because the report tells us the Covid-19 case rates per 100,000 people among the unvaccinated and two dose vaccinated population we are able to calculate the real-world vaccine effectiveness during this period, and it proved to be as follows

The real-world effectiveness of all available Covid-19 vaccines combined was as low as minus-47% in the 60-69 age group, and as high as +66% in the under 18 age group between August 16th and September 12th 2021. The only other age groups that the vaccine was showing to have positive effect at this point were 18-29, 30-39, and 80+. But as you can clearly see none of the age groups were showing a vaccine effectiveness anywhere near 95%.


Worse, one month later.

422 I saw a commentator, I forget who, maybe Brit Hume, maybe Jonathan Turley, note that Presidents and their attorneys are usually mindful not just about the personal price of losing on their claims of presidential power, but about the historic price of losing on claims of presidential power for all future presidents.

------

Well, there's your conservative governing principle, right there.

If I'm ever President, I'm just YOLO'ing the living fuck out of every day, *with the clearly stated purpose and intention* of violating every single Constitutional standard I possibly can, as very hard as I can.

That way, the Court can shut down everything I do and everything like it in perpetuity, and improve the country materially... Or they can let it ride to preserve the government's abuse-of-power industry, and deal with my lawless regime's enforcers dragging their political friends away to gulags while I ram through brutal and draconian anti-Communist EOs left, right, and center.

Well, studies have shown that children born to unwed mothers have bad effects for the babies, the mothers, and society, so perhaps when girls hit puberty they should be put on Norplant until they're married. For everyone's safety. It's very easy to track too.
Bonus: This has actually been tried, and vigorously opposed by reproductive rights groups because it infringes on bodily freedom or whatever.

Isaac Kappy claimed he had evidence against hanks, and then decided to throw himself off of a freeway overpass, and doing something funky like putting his belt on backwards before doing it.

Hanks has this weird penchant for photographing children's shoes, socks and gloves out in remote locations, often with cryptic writing nearby. A day or two before Kappy killed himself, Hanks took a picture of a medical glove at or near the very overpass Kappy launched himself off of on route 66, with a pretty creepy and prescient text. He's never bothered to remove it.

474 Glory was the best CW movie imo. Not counting Gone with the Wind as I doubtt I have seen it through. There are others, but to me Glory stood out. Sure it was about a tiny part of that landscape, but the same could be said about Goodfellas.

Okay, that's not creepy AF at all!

That would be enough for me to convict on the jury ... telegraphing and bragging about a murder with clear motive -- and it's still there after the fact?

It's a big pedo millionaires club, and I for one am glad I'm not in it.

485 I liked Hurt in Gorky Park. It was a perfect role, he was supposed to be wooden. I liked that movie so much I bought the DVD and read the book. America is played by Brian Dennehy.

486 I dunno that I'm terribly upset at the idea that the office of the President has been reduced in direct power. Executive order overreach has been a problem for a long time, I think; even when I agree with the purpose of the order, as under Trump, it can be overturned much too quickly and easily, and EOs from liberal democrats can do massive damage before they are reined in by the courts...as Biden pointed out. The president has a bully pulpit; he should use it to promote legislation that goes through the legislature.

487 I actually think it's great that the President's fighting for this power of vaccination over federal employees. The next step, when President DeSantis gets in, is to issue a mandate that all federal employees be put on chemically sterilizing hormone blockers (since, of course, testosterone causes piggish and aggressive behavior, and estrogen causes breast cancer, donchaknow) and/or fertility drugs (since judges have determined that it is acceptable that, as a country we would benefit from more children and legislation or executive action to encourage that is thus rationally related to a legitimate government purpose). I mean, that's what the SCOTUS logic will be if this is allowed.

Might as well use all that power for good if they're going to use it for evil. Watch all the rats swim off that ship!

488 But military personnel, hospital workers and others are out of luck? Some people are created more equal than others in the new progressive Amerikkka.
