Not only is Joe Biden’s sweeping vaccine mandate intruding on the health of as many as 100 million Americans unlawful because it’s unconstitutional, but he’s also breaking a significant promise that he and his officials have repeated to the American people.
There is now a constitutional crisis that Biden has wilfully provoked, just throwing everything he can at the American people and seeing what sticks, the same way he did with the eviction moratorium.
The president incredibly said that he didn’t think his administration’s mandate was even constitutional but would do it anyway to get away with as much as he could until the courts struck it down.
How can Americans continue to tolerate brazenly broken promises by politicians, complete 180 degree turns from what they swore they would or wouldn’t do, to the people they are supposed to serve and be responsible to?
Here’s a list of who all in the Biden Administration has promised there would be no vaccine mandates for months on end amid increasing strangulation of Americans’ freedoms:
President Joe Biden himself promised there would be no vaccine mandate. In Dec 2020 as president-elect, Biden said that instead of mandates, he would use his power as president to “encourage people to do the right thing.”
Joe Biden White House press secretary Jen Psaki has reiterated Biden’s promise of no vaccine mandate. In March of this year, Psaki declared “no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential” was a vital principle of the Biden administration. “That’s not the role of the federal government,” she gently assured reporters and the public at White House press briefings. She repeated Biden’s lie again and again.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky and the notorious gain-of-function patron Dr. Anthony Fauci himself have also promised that the U.S. government would not mandate that Americans get a shot to vaccinate against the coronavirus.
Joe Biden then returned his promise Thursday, announcing that his White House will force private businesses with 100 workers or more to demand employees show vaccination papers or negative coronavirus test papers to work.
The entire sordid, relentless, mission-creeping, goalpost moving, promise-breaking Covid affair is a series of broken promises, of lies, told by the establishment political and journalistic class, to string the public along a path of increasing submission to unconstitutional and dreadfully imprudent violations of Americans’ fundamental human liberties.
Joe Biden is rolling the dice that he will be popular as a war president with his war on germs and at least excite enough of the electorate mobilized behind Covid hysteria to win reelection in 2024. But he should remember George Bush Sr. was a famous war president and a one-term president because he raised taxes and trashed the economy.
And further, because he lied about it to the voters, and promised them infamously, “Read my lips, no new taxes,” then turned around and broke his promise as Joe Biden has done with vaccine mandates.
