A federal judge has blocked New York State from enforcing their vaccine mandate on health care workers.
Clinton appointed Judge David Hurd, in Utica, smacked down the mandate citing the order requiring healthcare workers to be vaccinated is unconstitutional because it did not allow a religious exemption.
The plaintiffs, all Christians were concerned because all of the available vaccines employ aborted fetus cell lines in their testing.
Hurd has suspended the mandate and is giving the state until September 22 to respond to the lawsuit.
“The vaccine mandate is suspended in operation to the extent that the (state Department of Health) is barred from enforcing any requirement that employers deny religious exemptions from COVID-19 vaccination or that they revoke any exemptions employers already granted before the vaccine mandate issued,” Hurd wrote in his decision.
New York Supreme Court Judge Laurence Love also issued a restraining order against Mayor Bill De Blasio’s mandate after multiple city unions sued. De Blasio had ordered that New York City public school teachers and staff must be vaccinated.
“While we do believe our members should get the vaccine, we do not believe it should be a condition of employment,” District Council 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido said in a statement. “Clearly, the court agrees,” he added.
This is all bad news for Joe Biden who’s trying to implement his own vaccine mandate demanding all businesses with over 100 employees vaccinate their staff or face fines.
Rep. Thomas Massie points out one of the flaws of Biden’s attempt to use OSHA.
Biden is trying to use OSHA and the notion of a hazard in the workplace to force the shot on people. But what if those people work from home? How could he possibly compel companies to force employees who work from home? His tortured logic does not apply there.

I’m sure you’ve seen the talking point posts on social media like the one below, they are being sent out and spread on social media. The media is using the same talking points to give the administration cover. However, the lower courts are already starting to speak out vaccine mandates are unconstitutional. Not only that, the SCOTUS decision being cited by Democrats to impose a vaccine mandate was also used as justification for state mandated sterilization. We’ll have more on that soon.
