OSHA Suspends Medically Coercive Vaccine Mandate After Legal Pushback

The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has suspended the implementation and enforcement of its controversial vaccine mandate just days after a federal court temporarily blocked the rule, citing “grave statutory and constitutional issues.”

OSHA announced it would “suspend activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the [Emergency Temporary Standard] pending future developments in the litigation,” according to OSHA’s website.

The administration’s backdown comes less than a week after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued and reaffirmed an explosive motion to freeze the vaccine mandate prompted by the Biden administration. On Nov. 12, the court ordered that OSHA “take no steps to implement or enforce” the mandate “until further court order.”


The court’s original stay came after joint entities from multiple states including Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah challenged the mandate. OSHA’s latest announcement paired with ongoing legal battles makes the future of the rule unclear leading up to its original enforcement date of Jan. 4, though many employees have already been forced to get the jab in anticipation of the rule.

At least 27 states have sued the Biden administration over its OSHA mandate, bashing the administration for overreach.

Biden White House Again Gives the Courts the Middle Finger Over COVID Vaccine Mandate


For the second time in a month, the White House on Thursday urged large businesses to move forward with coronavirus vaccine mandates for their workforces despite court challenges to the Biden administration’s vaccine-or-test requirement for private companies.

“Our message to businesses right now is to move forward with measures that will make their workplaces safer and protect their workforces from COVID-19,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during a briefing. “That was our message after the first stay issued by the Fifth Circuit. That remains our message and nothing has changed.”:snip:

6th Circuit Delivers Another Smackdown to Biden Admin on OSHA Mandate

Joe Biden just got some more bad news when it comes to his effort to impose vaccine mandates on Americans.

Last month, the 5th Circuit took the Biden Administration to the woodshed, upholding the stay on the imposition of the vaccine mandate on private businesses with 100 or more employees through an OSHA rule. While it wasn’t ruling on the underlying merits of the case, the 5th Circuit indicated that there were a lot of constitutional issues with the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).

:snip:The most significant takeaway is that there were motions to transfer the cases to the 5th Circuit and the D.C. Circuit Court. Those motions were denied, a big blow to the Biden team who might have hoped for a more favorable decision in the D.C Circuit. The 6th Circuit is more conservative in general, so that can’t make the Biden team very happy. The court also denied the motion to hold the case in abeyance.:snip:

U.S. judge blocks COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors

(Reuters) - A federal judge in Georgia issued a nationwide injunction that prevents the U.S. government from enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on federal contractors, temporarily shutting down the last remaining vaccine requirement by the Biden administration.

U.S. District Judge Stan Baker in Savannah, Georgia, said Congress did not clearly authorize the president to use procurement to impose a vaccine requirement on contractors that will have "vast economic and political significance."

The lawsuit was filed by the states of Georgia, Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia as well as a trade group for contractors.

Senate votes to repeal Biden federal vaccine mandate for businesses

Even if the House approves as well, the measure faces a Biden veto

Thomas Barrabi

Dec. 8 2021

The Senate voted Wednesday to repeal a President Biden-backed federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses.


The final vote was 52-48. Moderate Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana joined Republicans to vote in favor of the repeal.

Even with Senate approval, the GOP-backed resolution is unlikely to overturn the mandate. The Democrat-controlled House is not expected to take up the measure and President Biden would likely veto the bill if it cleared Congress.

Republicans brought the repeal to the Senate floor under the "Congressional Review Act," which allows Congress to review presidential executive orders. Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., who sponsored the resolution, said the mandate was an example of the "heavy hand of government" hurting businesses.
