Biden finished off his worst week for a president that any of your editors can remember in many years in the swamp. The clincher was the rejection of his vaccine mandate by the Supreme Court in a 6-3 vote. This law was CLEARLY unconstitutional and it speaks poorly of Justices Kagan, Breyer, and Sotomayer that they voted to uphold the law.
We’re also disappointed in Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts in voting with the liberal wing of the Court to allow the health worker mandate to stand.
But note the factual basis for that decision: reduced transmission.
But this is an absurd argument because even the Biden medical team admits the vaccines can’t stop transmission.
If there were ever any case for a vaccine mandate it was to prevent the externality effect of the unvaccinated potentially spreading the virus to coworkers or customers of a business. But now with the Omicron variant, the evidence is clear that, as the Biden team acknowledges, the vaccine does NOT stop transmission of the virus.
Rochelle Walensky on CNN admitted a few months ago: “Our vaccines continue to work well for Delta with regard to severe illness and death. What they cannot do anymore is prevent transmission.”
Even Fauci now admits that, with Omicron, nearly everyone regardless of vax status will get COVID.
Earlier this week Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said on CNBC: “Two doses of the vaccine offers very limited protection, if any. Three doses with a booster offer reasonable protection against hospitalization and deaths.” Is the government going to mandate three doses now, and a booster?
