Covid-ignorant Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor declined to block the vaccine mandate being imposed on New York City teachers today. She did not offer a comment on her decision.
The district that covers New York is overseen by Sotomayor, who embarrassed herself last month during open statements in the OSHA vaccine mandate case. She voted with the minority against blocking the mandate.
According to NBC New York:
The Supreme Court of the United States has denied a request from a group of New York City public school teachers seeking to block a vaccine mandate for employees who were not given a religious exemption.
Their appeal was directed to Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who handles cases from that region.
Sotomayor rejected an earlier challenge, filed in October, to the city’s vaccine mandate. And on Friday she rejected this one, too, with no explanation, which is the court’s usual procedure. She did not ask the city for a response, either — another sign that the request for an injunction would likely fail.
New York City public school teachers and other school staff members are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as of October, when the controversial mandate for the largest public school district in the country went into effect.
Since then, the city also issued a mandate for all non-public school employees to provide proof of first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination as of December.
It appears the fate of thousands of workers in New York City has been sealed. They must either get the jab or lose their jobs. It could have been different if they had a Supreme Court Justice overseeing their district that knew a smidgen of science regarding Covid.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
