5th Circuit mentions tweet from Ron Klain in ruling against Biden Vaccine mandate

SOURCE — THE BLAZE

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit again ruled against President Joe Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate Friday. According to the court, the mandate — which is enforced as an emergency temporary standard via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration — is “likely unconstitutional.”

The court explained:

The Constitution vests a limited legislative power in Congress. For more than a century, Congress has routinely used this power to delegate policymaking specifics and technical details to executive agencies charged with effectuating policy principles Congress lays down. In the mine run of cases—a transportation department regulating trucking on an interstate highway, or an aviation agency regulating an airplane lavatory—this is generally well and good. But health agencies do not make housing policy, and occupational safety administrations do not make health policy.

In seeking to do so here, OSHA runs afoul of the statute from which it draws its power and, likely, violates the constitutional structure that safeguards our collective liberty.

The panel of three appellate court justices indicated they believed the Biden administration is seeking to use OSHA to enact its COVID vaccine mandate as a “work-around” for the federal government’s glaring lack of legal authority to enforce such a broad mandate.

Their perspective toward the Biden administration’s motive was located in a footnote in the court opinion.  In that footnote, the court cited a “retweet” by Klain.  The footnote read:

On September 9, 2021, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain retweeted MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle’s tweet that stated, “OSHA doing this vaxx mandate as an emergency workplace safety rule is the ultimate work-around for the Federal govt to require vaccinations.”

At the time that Klain retweeted Ruhle, it was predicted that Klain would regret it.

Lincoln Project Scheme To Support Trump In 2024

Lincoln Project’s desire for Trump to run again leaves observers disgusted, surprised: ‘Utterly desperate’

Lincoln Project Scheme To Support Trump In 2024

The Lincoln Project is, on the surface, vehemently against Donald Trump ever becoming president of the United States again. The left-wing PAC founded by disgruntled ex-Republicans has called him a coward, a loser, an authoritarian, a clear and present danger to national security, and responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

So co-founder Rick Wilson’s expressed desire in a recent interview to see him be the Republican nominee in 2024 has some people befuddled, particularly with polls showing Trump with a solid chance of ousting President Biden in a rematch. Some see it as more of a scam from an organization that’s attracted some praise for its aggressive tactics but also derision from the right and left for allegedly abandoning conservative principles and soaking liberal donors. It’s still smarting from the embarrassing John Weaver sexual harassment scandal and its flop in the Virginia governor’s race where it attempted a viral smear to paint Glenn Youngkin supporters as White supremacists.

“It begs the question, why? What’s their motive? What’s their motivation? And I can understand why a lot of people would say it has to do with money,” one network insider and political commentator told Fox News Digital.

The Lincoln Project boasted to CNN about its ad airing this week in Trump’s town of Palm Beach, Florida, that’s meant to annoy him about the rising political star of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis, a Republican, is allied with Trump but could be a potential rival 2024 contender.

“We want Trump to kill his own babies,” Wilson said. “We believe if we narrow the field and it’s only Trump in 2024, it’s an easy choice for Americans to say ‘no.'”

Former Lincoln Project executive director Sarah Lenti, who left the group this year, is disgusted by that stance.

She remains thoroughly opposed to Trump and joined the organization in 2020 because she believed he was dangerous, and she recalled the New York Times op-ed penned by co-founders Weaver, Wilson, Steve Schmidt and George Conway announcing the Lincoln Project’s formation.

“As Americans, we must stem the damage he and his followers are doing to the rule of law, the Constitution and the American character,” they wrote.
