Earlier this month, in response to a United States appellate court’s preliminary injunction order, the US government suspended implementing and enforcing President Joe Biden’s mandate regarding employees of companies with 100 or more employees taking experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots. Then, yesterday, a US district court issued a preliminary injunction order against the implementation and enforcement of Biden’s mandate that millions of workers in the health care field take the shots.
Today, another of Biden’s major vaccine mandates was enjoined by a district court in Kentucky. The injunction, which applies in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee, bars the implementation and enforcement of Biden’s vaccine mandate for employees of contractors of the US government.
In the preliminary injunction order, Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky made the following conclusion regarding the dispute before him in the case of Kentucky v. Biden:
The question presented here is narrow. Can the president use congressionally delegated authority to manage the federal procurement of goods and services to impose vaccines on the employees of federal contractors and subcontractors? In all likelihood, the answer to that question is no. So, for the reasons that follow, the pending request for a preliminary injunction will be GRANTED.
