I have seen no evidence that the Biden administration has issued an executive order for vaccine mandates for employer with more than 100 employees. It has been over a month since Biden announced the alleged mandates. Does that mean that the Biden administration has abandoned mandates?
Has Pfizer actually started to offer the COMIRNATY vaccine that the FDA approved? If not why not?
Here is what the FDA has said:
Comirnaty has the same formulation as the FDA-authorized Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and can be used interchangeably to provide the COVID-19 vaccination series without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns. The products are legally distinct with certain differences that do not impact safety or effectiveness. Q&A for Comirnaty (COVID-19 Vaccine mRNA) | FDA
If they are legally distinct, but the same formulation, is the delay in releasing the Comirnaty vaccine part of a strategy to avoid liabilities for vaccine-related injuries?
There seems to be a lot of smoke and mirrors related to the vaccines. What is going on?
The mandates are allegedly supposed to be effective starting December 8. Does the failure to issue an executive order mean that Biden has abandoned the mandates?
“The Labor Department is going to shortly issue an emergency rule — which I asked for several weeks ago, and they’re going through the process — to require all employees [employers] with more than 100 people, whether they work for the federal government or not — this is within a — in the purview of the Labor Department — to ensure their workers are fully vaccinated or face testing at least once a week.”
Here is a quote from the Federalist link in the OP:
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.
The governor of Texas has issued an executive order banning mandates, but the management of Southwest Airlines is apparently claiming that they will follow a non-existent federal rule instead.
If the Biden administration is using extra-legal threats and intimidation to enforce the mandate, then they can claim that the actions of the companies is strictly voluntary since no rule has been issued.
Yes, where is the alleged executive order for government contractors? Please provide a link.
Lawyers for big business were blunt about their love for this mandate mirage: “Everybody loves this cover,” Minneapolis employment lawyer Kate Bischoff told Bloomberg Law in September. “Many were already looking down the road at doing this, but the fact that they get to blame Biden is like manna from heaven.”
. . . “OSHA has used that legal authority only 10 times in 50 years,” David Rivkin Jr. and Robert Alt wrote in the Wall Street Journal in September. “Courts have decided challenges to six of those standards, nixing five and upholding only one.”.
The process has become a mockery of rule of law.
It looks like everything is stacked to exempt the vaccine makers and big employers from liability for vaccine-related injuries while sticking it to the average workers.
Yes, instead of challenging an actual rule in court, states would have to prove that the federal government is violating the law.
The Texas strategy of banning mandates may make a lot of sense. They can enforce that requirement without the federal rule. The company can’t claim that a non-existent executive order prevents them from following state law.
I actually agree Biden’s earlier statement about the vaccine approval process from November 9, 2020:
