(Republican Party News) – The American people continue to get one victory over another as courts across the land rule on the legality of Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates. It’s not looking good for the Biden regime.
Yet another ruling has solidified the unconstitutionality of the mandates, this time a federal judge in Savannah, Georgia, ruled on Tuesday that the Biden administration exceeded its constitutional authority and blocked the remaining COVID-19 vaccine mandate for businesses who do deal with the federal government.
The mandate was seeking to force millions of employees of federal contractors to be inoculated but fortunately US District Judge Stan Baker has stood in the gap.
Republican South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, who joined the lawsuit, asserted, “Abuse of power by the Biden administration has been stopped cold again.”

According to a report by Reuters, Judge Baker argued that Congress did not clearly authorize Biden to impose a requirement that will have “vast economic and political significance.”
A federal appeals court in New Orleans has already put the brakes on Biden’s requirement that businesses with at least 100 employees mandate the vaccine for their employees or have them tested weekly.
Last week, a court blocked a Biden mandate requiring most healthcare workers to get vaccinated.
So far, the only mandates that have managed to hold up in court have been the ones regarding military and civilian government employees.
The states of Georgia, Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia have all joined the lawsuit to fight against the federal-contractor mandate along with a trade group for building contractors.
According to the unconstitutional and illegal mandate, federal contractors must require all of their employees to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 18.
Naturally, the corrupt Justice Department has vowed to vehemently fight for the mandates. The DOJ has already filed a motion with the Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati in response to last month’s ruling in the Fifth Circuit Court in New Orleans pausing the mandate for private businesses with 100 or more employees.
The DOJ argued that the mandate is a reflection of the agency’s “judgment that these measures are necessary to mitigate COVID-19 transmission in the workplace, and the grievous harms the virus inflicts on workers.”
The lawsuits challenging the mandate have been filed by a number of Republican-led states, employers, unions and private organizations that argue the requirement is unconstitutional and an overreach of the government in the private sector.
The mandate requires around 84 million private sector workers to get fully vaccinated by Jan. 4 or submit to weekly testing, at no cost to their employer, and wear a mask at work.
Employers have been threatened with fines of up to $13,653 per violation or $136,532 for repeat offenders or those determined to be intentionally flouting the rule.
In New Orleans, the Fifth Circuit Judge Kurt Engelhardt wrote that he had “grave” concerns that the mandate is unconstitutional.
“The mandate is staggeringly overbroad,” he wrote in the majority opinion. “The mandate is a one-size-fits-all sledgehammer that makes hardly any attempt to account for differences in workplaces (and workers).”
No free American citizen should be forced or coerced into taking a vaccine, or any other medical treatment, against their will or their conscience.
