The result was 6-3 on party lines.

I'm surprised Barrett didn't jump to make it 5-4, but she's probably keeping her powder dry for one they can actually win.

Everyone ready to see MRNA plummeting?

We might finally be done with this bullshit.

CptLightning 22 points ago +22 / -0

It's literally just a stay on it. It's going back to the Sixth Circuit for a ruling where we might have to go through all this again

And they refused to stay the Healthcare mandate. This is nowhere close to done with the bullshit

Happicakes 15 points ago +15 / -0

Supreme Court strongly indicated in the opinion that the mandate exceeded OSHA's authority to issue. This is essentially a quiet order to the 6th Circuit that it is going to get smacked down if they push it.

RaisingPhoenix 4 points ago +4 / -0

The fact that they continue to ping pong this crap instead of providing a firm ruling is asinine.

Piroko 3 points ago +3 / -0

The courts have their procedures. That it seems alien to you is simply because you aren't familiar with its workings.

Today was decisive. All that's left is merely the formalities.

I wouldn't be surprised if the case remains on the 6th's docket in some form all the way up through the election; the case won't die as long as the Administration is willing to blow money roleplaying Don Quixote. But after today the ultimate outcome is no longer in doubt.

Piroko 11 points ago +11 / -0

It's literally just a stay on it. It's going back to the Sixth Circuit for a ruling where we might have to go through all this again

In the language of court decisions, the wording of the ruling was basically marching orders directly to the 6th on how the court expects them to rule.

You do know that your hero Roberts + Kav upheld the mandate for health care workers, while Barrett voted no, right?

TheImpossible1 [S] 1 point ago +7 / -6

Healthcare workers are scum anyway. Jab them until you run out of needles, then clean the needles and jab them some more.

Healthy person admitted > Remdesivir > organ failure > ventilator > "oh no, he died of Covid. Get jabbed."

AntonioOfVenice 2 points ago +3 / -1

Your 'politics' boil down to "I DON'T LIKE YOU". No matter what precedent or principle it establishes.

The best kind of useful idiot for the radical-left. Which is why you will lose for the rest of your life.

Let me guess, your explanation for why Barrett voted against the mandate for health workers is that "they are mostly female" or something?

What's wrong with making the murderers drink their own poison?

Go fuck yourself.


one of those healthcare worker scum.

You dumb cunt, you have no fucking idea what actually goes on bedside.

TheImpossible1 [S] 0 points ago +1 / -1

you have no fucking idea what actually goes on bedside.

I know that the More Feminine Flu is not a death sentence, yet a lot of people who shouldn't die, end up dying.

I know that Remdesivir causes kidney failure, as well as damaging other organs.

I know that ventilators have a ridiculously low survival rate after being used.

I think you just pretend that I don't know anything. It's why I really don't like health workers. Apart from the fact their incompetence nearly killed me and my mother in separate incidents, as well as giving me a false cancer diagnosis that cost me tons of time and money to check before it finally was revealed to be retarded, I really have no patience for Dr Googles who do fuck all but look up what they're supposed to do and act like geniuses to everyone else, like they're fucking heroes for going onto a PowerPoint that says give this at this point.

I remember in the UK, right at the beginning of the little lab "accident", they had a protocol to put males on palliative care in order of some weird point system, if a woman needed a ICU spot. Not fucking one of them spoke up about it. Not one. Just take the paycheck and ignore the plan to fucking kill people.

Same with the Remdesivir, which they fucking know doesn't work. Even China knows it doesn't work because they tried it already.

Same with the ventilators, the fatality rates are in 90%+ range. How the fuck has not one of them realised it makes everything worse?

8BitArchitect 9 points ago +9 / -0

Are you basing this being a 6-3 ruling on the fact that the dissent was only signed by the three "liberal" members of the court, and not (either) Roberts or Barret? I can see a case where either of those would simply not sign a dissent against the overall decision for political reasons.

JustHereForTheSalmon 9 points ago +9 / -0

Can always count on leftist judges to go left.

It's the others that are always a toss up.

FuckGenderPolitics 23 points ago +23 / -0

The mandate for healthcare workers is still up, which isn't surprising. That was always going to be harder to argue against. But this should at least buy the rest of us some time. Maybe the Dems will conclude that after Virginia they'll have to end this scam to have a chance not to get slaughtered in November.

TheModernDaVinci 24 points ago +24 / -0

The problem is they have boxed themselves in a corner by psychologically abusing their own base for two years. So now they are stuck in a position where if they back down on mandates, their base will hate them and primary them out for a radical. But if they stick with the mandates, they will piss off the far more numerous moderates and populist and lose the general.

It’s why I remain positive about the longer term direction we are going.

TheImpossible1 [S] 25 points ago +26 / -1

Won't they just cheat again?

FuckGenderPolitics 14 points ago +14 / -0

They'll try, but it only works if the election is close enough. It also helps if our side takes volunteer poll watcher gigs, which is why they weren't able to cheat Youngkin out of his win in Virginia.

TheModernDaVinci 7 points ago +7 / -0

Like the other comment said, cheating can only get you so far. Especially when people are now wise to the Lefts plans and have started doing what they can to stop them. So now they have the extra issue of people being on guard against their cheating at the same time that a critical mass is developing between moderates and populist. So I stand by my belief that what we are seeing now is the Globalist Menace in its death rattle throwing everything they can just to have even the most minor of a hope of stopping whats coming, and it still wont work.

FuckGenderPolitics 12 points ago +12 / -0

This is an excellent take, but I have just one minor quibble. They're not psychologically abusing their base. They're psychologically abusing everyone else at the behest of their base because they know their base is driven solely by hatred of the rest of the country. All this kung flu bullshit is about terrorizing everyone else into obeying their betters. The problem they have is people are starting to realize that giving abusers what they want doesn't stop the abuse, it guarantees more abuse. As you said they've boxed themselves into a corner by catering to progressive abusers who have them by the balls because while the they can't win elections without their support they need support from people that are less hateful and more sane than them as well. So they either either back down and lose the primary (and then the general) or keep feeding the beast and lose the general.

And it still is.

But that says more about Paris than Detroit.

I was mostly making a reference to Covid specifically for the timeline, but fair point.

yeldarb1983 5 points ago +6 / -1

yeah, sorry. It's just something I've realized in the last year or so. Every bit of leftist lunacy we're dealing with now started as a social engineering experiment in the ghetto.



Pod living?

meet the projects.

just to name two that come to mind.

GimmeFuelGimmeFire 15 points ago +15 / -0

They're shelving it for the midterms, lockdowns and mandates to resume immediately following the elections. BUT WATCH OUT cuz here comes the next Greek letter of the alphabet conveniently around October 20th so that they can have global mail-in ballots! New York to receive 7800 more Electoral College votes to accommodate the Earth's population that is now legally allowed to vote in American elections.

reidj 8 points ago +8 / -0

Doubt it'll be the next letter. They skipped Β and Γ between Α and Δ. They skipped Ε, Ζ, Η, Θ, Ι, Κ, Λ, Μ, Ν, Ξ and Ε between Δ and Ο. They'll likely skip a few.

The New York vote is only for municipal shit I thought. I didn't think they could vote for federal officials, am I wrong?

ailurus 5 points ago +5 / -0

For now, you are correct. But, I'll be stunned if it stays that way. Once they find a crack they can push on to escalate it, they'll do so in a heartbeat

LordLavaLamp 1 point ago +1 / -0

That was always going to be harder to argue against.

Not that hard, actually. Went through all of wave one without a fucking clotshot, wearing everything short of an NBC cleansuit because everyone was acting like we had an aerosolized version of the black death with hints of ebola, without issue, and everyone who actually followed proper infection control protocols was less likely to spread coof (which, for anyone who forgot, spreads on a respiratory vector) then rooming people together because one URI looks the same as another until the lab tests come back or because you're out of isolation rooms again (because fuck modernization, we have government money to embezzle, right admin?)

Now we're down a load of staff over the last mandate, and they're just calling people who tested coof positive but have little to no symptoms to come back and work anyway. Literally people who're coof positive (and, by the fearmongers logic, should be on trains to the arctic to wait out their death plague isolation) being asked to come work direct bedside.

Fuck the mandates; we have tons of arguments for why we should purge them and just beg the people who were fired for being unclean burakkus to come back.

GoldenPlains 16 points ago +16 / -0

Wont stop big corps from enforcing one I'd imagine. Can a corporation make it part of your employment requirement? Or is that against a current law? Can say a company mandate it without OSHA forcing them too?

We need laws at the state level now to protect us from these corporations. I saw the Kristi Noem of South Dakota recently gave a speech to the legislature where she said that they were going to enshrine medical and religious exemptions. I don't agree with that because I don't believe this is an exemption but hey, its a start i guess.

Booker 9 points ago +9 / -0

The companies that have mandated it will likely continue to. And if Biden wants, he can force OSHA to make more narrowly-tailored orders to different industries, and those mandates will likely survive scrutiny, if the Supreme Court follows its own logic that it laid out in its opinion. I don't see this as a victory.

TakenusernameA 16 points ago +17 / -1

This is only one battle.

The war still rages on.

Celebrate, but also PREPARE, because they wont stop.

MuffyMangina 9 points ago +9 / -0

Yeah, this was a barely successful defense against a potentially catastrophic attack. Time to go all out on the offensive against covid tyrants. Blood is in the water with all the recent news.

RealDrJester 15 points ago +19 / -4

For now...

Never forget that they will keep trying.

NihilistCaregiver 13 points ago +13 / -0

The Solicitor General does not dispute that OSHA is limited to regulating “work-related dangers.” Response Brief for OSHA in No. 21A244 etc., p. 45 (OSHA Response). She instead argues that the risk of contracting COVID–19 qualifies as such a danger. We cannot agree. Although COVID–19 is a risk that occurs in many workplaces, it is not an occupational hazard in most. COVID–19 can and does spread at home, in schools, during sporting events, and everywhere else that people gather. That kind of universal risk is no different from the day-to-day dangers that all face from crime, air pollution, or any number of communicable diseases. Permitting OSHA to regulate the hazards of daily life—simply because most Americans have jobs and face those same risks while on the clock—would significantly expand OSHA’s regulatory authority without clear congressional authorization.

The dissent contends that OSHA’s mandate is comparable to a fire or sanitation regulation imposed by the agency. See post, at 7–9. But a vaccine mandate is strikingly unlike the workplace regulations that OSHA has typically imposed. A vaccination, after all, “cannot be undone at the end of the workday.” In re MCP No. 165, 20 F. 4th, at 274 (Sutton, C. J., dissenting). Contrary to the dissent’s contention, imposing a vaccine mandate on 84 million Americans in response to a worldwide pandemic is simply not “part of what the agency was built for.” Post, at 10.

That is not to say OSHA lacks authority to regulate occupation-specific risks related to COVID–19. Where the virus poses a special danger because of the particular features of an employee’s job or workplace, targeted regulations are plainly permissible. We do not doubt, for example, that OSHA could regulate researchers who work with the COVID–19 virus. So too could OSHA regulate risks associated with working in particularly crowded or cramped environments. But the danger present in such workplaces differs in both degree and kind from the everyday risk of contracting COVID–19 that all face. OSHA’s indiscriminate approach fails to account for this crucial distinction—between occupational risk and risk more generally—and accordingly the mandate takes on the character of a general public health measure, rather than an “occupational safety or health standard.” 29 U. S. C. §655(b) (emphasis added).

There's a lot of pessimism here, likely well justified. Still I call this a big win because we've not been seeing this stuff get defeated at a high level pretty much anywhere in the world, and it did here.

JustHereForTheSalmon 10 points ago +10 / -0

I've lived a lifetime seeing my rights get eroded and destroyed. I think back to even just basic shit like hanging out with friends on the outskirts of town without any no-trespassing signs or the police being called. Being able to keep my loved ones company and kiss them goodbye right from the boarding gate. Actually having privacy without getting some electronic device to tattle on where I've been.

It's a win, but it's a little like just moving up a trench after losing ground for countless battles.

Again, they do the bare minimum to keep the illusion they aren't part of the establishment/uniparty.

I have come around to the Styxhexenhammer/Razorfist position that the Black Pilled are either enemy subversives pretending to be on our side or traitors hoping for leniency from their supposed conquerors. And that both deserve the helicopter, and for the same reason.

Imagine being thirty-something years old, growing up in the 90s, your first vivid memory of adolescence was watching the towers fall, you lost your first job when the housing bubble burst, your time at university marred by a series of increasingly-absurd administrative rulings de facto threatening you with ruin for talking to the wrong girl, mobs running your best professors off campus with literal torches and pitchforks, you graduate and the economy's still for shit so you enlist and make a couple trips to the sandbox where you come to understand that we don't know what we're doing there, the locals don't want us there, and your buddy got his legs blown off for nothing, you get out, ears ringing every night so loud you can't sleep, the espionage gear your unit wouldn't spring for to track the guy planting the bombs is being used on you because the Kenyan thinks you're a threat to his power, and just when you've about had enough, a halfway decent presidential candidate comes along, and every institution in the country is tripping over itself to shred Truth, the law, and the republic itself to be rid of him, and then a shitty Chinese bioweapon gets released just in time for an election to be blatantly stolen, your dad dies of cancer because doctors just quit treating patients, your leftist sister has turned your nephew into your niece, you lose your job again because you refuse to be a lab rat, and having even the tiniest sliver of optimism left.

Things have been getting markedly worse for twenty-one years. I'd love to have some hope, but I don't see any on the horizon looking forwards or backwards.

MetallicBioMeat 4 points ago +4 / -0

Careful there tovarich,

You are declaring people to be the enemy cause they have no hope, sure those people are not useful to the cause,but if you still think freedom has value then the voice of the hopeless must be allowed to be heard.
