Joe Biden’s Vaccine Mandate for Private Companies was Just a Press Release.
But Millions Took the Shots
“On September 9th, Joe Biden announced that he was implementing a Covid vaccine mandate for private companies with more than 100 employees, which has jeopardized the employment of tens of millions Americans and is causing a shortage of workers, especially in health care. Biden threatened to cut federal funding from businesses that refuse to comply. But there is no executive order to back this up. It was just an announcement to the press. Press statements have no legal authority.
Scientist and author James Lyons- Weiler tweeted about the OSHA final rule: “Word to the wise: The OSHA Final Rule has not been entered in the Federal Register. If you are an employer and you are enforcing vaccine or test mandates, you’re wide open to lawsuits for damages, lost wages, and psychological distress. It’s a Guidance, meaning it’s non-binding.”-GEG
“Yes, we’ve heard all about Joe Biden’s alleged vaccine mandate for private companies employing 100 or more people. It was all over the news even before he announced it on September 9. His announcement has jeopardized the employment of millions of Americans and increased worker shortages in critical domains such as health care.
There’s only one problem. It’s all a mirage. Biden’s so-called vaccine mandate doesn’t exist — at least, not yet. So far, all we have is his press conference and other such made-for-media huff-puffing. No such rule even claiming to be legally binding has been issued yet.
That’s why nearly two dozen Republican attorneys general who have publicly voiced their opposition to the clearly unconstitutional and illegal mandate haven’t yet filed suit against it, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General confirmed for me. There is no mandate to haul into court. And that may be part of the plan.
According to several sources, so far it appears no such mandate has been sent to the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs yet for approval. The White House, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Department of Labor haven’t released any official guidance for the alleged mandate. There is no executive order. There’s nothing but press statements.
Despite what you may have been falsely led to believe by the media fantasy projection machine, press statements have exactly zero legal authority.
“There is nothing there yet that gives employers any mandate,” Stephanie McFarland, spokeswoman for the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration, told me Oct. 6. “The president made an announcement on this asking OSHA to do it, but we’ve not yet seen anything come from it yet,” she also said. When the state agency gets any further information, she said, they’ll review it.”
