Did the 5th Circuit Court just say “Let’s Go Brandon”?

“Because the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate, the Mandate is hereby STAYED pending further action by this court.”

That’s pretty short and to the point.

The ruling.

I wonder if the administration will take as long to respond as OSHA did to put this thing together?

    Supreme Court, here we go.

  2. lysias says:

    They can’t take a long time to respond. The Fifth Circuit only gave them until Monday.

    • Lysias says:

      I just read a comment on Steve Kirschner’s site saying that Biden has defied the court order. Does that mean that his administration has not met the deadline for responding?

  3. Deap says:

    Even worse: OSHA recently inserted an employer exemption from reporting adverse effects from these newly mandated employee “covid” injections.

    Plus they actually added language justifying the adverse reaction reporting exemption, …….because they did not want to discourage anyone from getting injected.

    This stuns my poor little brain.

    Newsweek: “Sweden kept daycare and schools open for all its 1.8 million children ages 1 to 15, with no masks, testing or social distancing. The result? Zero COVID deaths among children & a COVID risk to teachers lower than the average of other professions”


    This man-made & engineered virus pandemic has given us an opportunity to discover the authoritarians masquerading as “democratic” and “good governance” leaders.

    Kiwi PM Jacinda Arden has got to be on the top of the list. Followed closely by Aussie government leaders. And then of course the many woke-drenched leaders in the US and Europe.

    The lockdowns based on utter quackery not only disproportionately affected those ostensibly these wokesters support like small businesses and blue-collar workers. lockdown screwed over the working classes and benefited the Twitter class including government workers who got paid even if they did nothing sitting at home on Zoom meetings.

    The most egregious thing these woke authoritarians did was to screw all our school-going children of nearly 2 years of education and instill pandemic fear porn.

    What is amazing is how meekly much of the people in western societies accepted the totalitarian hypocrisy of the Big Pharma water-carriers. But what has been most astounding is the character of the Aussies and Kiwis. Wow! They’re an unbelievably fearful people so easily susceptible to government propaganda.

      As seen from the VA election the former Governor, McCauliffe, never sent his kids to public schools,and thinks parents who do should not be involved in their children’s eduction but be silent and obedient, and all the rest we saw in Loudon. The blowback from those polices blew out his shoe-in election to a second term. While off the 5th circuit ruling topic we saw the great momentum of that Republican victory used so stunningly by the Cuckservatives of the old GOP by thier saving Biden’s Bacon and Pelosi’s final years of screwing us all with the vote for the grift filled boondoggle bill the left’s been dreaming of shoving down our throats for months. The “bipartisan” part being led by Katko and Upton, believers in the ‘insurrection’ lie.

        Speaking of cancer, there are indications that the covid vaccines, by weakening the immune system, have been leading to rapidly progressing cases of cancer.

  5. Deap says:

    Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has more to say than Let’s Go Brandon – about Biden’s “emissions” that allegedly she claims were hard to ignore:


    Seems untoward for Camilla to be saying this in public, but then mouthy “royals” are getting to be the next best thing, as the Duchess of Sussex just demonstrated by cold calling US senators to beg for legislative favors.

  6. TV says:

    Among the lessons we have absorbed from the
    “scamdemic” is the prevalent daily fear that so many people live with.

    • AK says:

      I would amend your comment to say “the prevalent daily fear that so many people choose to live with.” A vast segment of the populace yearns to be afraid and to be controlled. Freedom and its attendant risks are too great a burden to bear for these despicable souls. What makes them despicable is not necessarily their own craven submission to tyrannical authority per se, but rather their adamant insistence that the rest of us join them.

  7. Deap says:

    Watching a Great Courses series right now on “Greatest Trials” and they just did the McMartin Pre-School Trial- which was compared to the Salem Witch Trials – with the commentary that every fifty years or so, a mass hysteria envelopes the country and everything one thought they believed in about truth, justice and the American Way is turned upside down.

    Prior examples besides the Salem Trials, were the McCarthy Era hearings, the 60’s Anti-War trials, the Mississippi Burning civil rights trials, Watergate, OJ Simpson.

    And now RussiaGate and now the Jan 6 incarcerations – times of great social upheaval that often are not noticed while they are happening, but are reflected in a topsy-turvey administration of justice that breaches our fundamental sensibilities about who we think we are.

    One nation under law, everyone is equal before the law, justice is blind, notice and fairness, right to face your accuser, and innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We teeter today on all those issues.

    Horrible if one is caught on the wrong side, because even an acquittal or dismissal never puts one’s life back together.

    I do think we remain a resilient nation – I think we continue to have the capacity to renew ourselves. But the going is rough sometimes. This is one of those times. The role of the US Supreme Court has never been more critical than right now. Their collection of rulings will steer the nation on to its next chapter.

    • Fred says:

      Simpson got off, there was no hysteria about it. The one you missed is the McMartin preschool trial and associated scandal. “Russia Gate” is not a mass hysteria, it is criminal conduct of the highest order which was effectively a color revolution against an elected government. It is still ongoing. January 6th was a false flag, just the the “Whitmer kidnapping” in Michigan six weeks before the election.

      “…everyone is equal before the law, justice is blind…” If you are watching the trial in Kenosha you see that is often not the case; if you watch a lot of local trials you’ll see it often is as most Americans aren’t involved in politicized trials. The Supreme Court, they sure botched that, or at least Roberts did, with the failure to supervise the FISA Courts properly and his stunt with the “whistleblower” who even a sitting Senator could not mention by name. You think they’ll “save us”?

      • Deap says:

        Simpson got off via “jury nullification” which was an interesting judicial phenomenon introduced into this case leaving many perplexed, because the glove did fit. Jury body language from day one forecast that curious verdict.

        Mass fascination with the OJ trial is a better term than mass hysteria. The rent mass national hysteria was better saved for the George Floyd trial – mass delusion.

        As I stated, we teeter on all our fundamental beliefs in our justice system today. Including public acquiesce to the US Supreme Court being the final law of. the land.

        I served as a volunteer small claims court judge for five years and I made it my rule parties would leave the court understanding why I reached the verdict that was pronounced, even though these were often just landlord tenant cases or car purchase agreements.

        That is the role I hope we see more of – a deeper national understanding of why court rulings are held; and mitigate the now lingering suspicions they were politically motivated.

        I think we need to re-buy into knowing our final arbiter, the US Supreme Court, is a neutral adjudicator. And this must be earned, not blindly handed to them. That is why I elevated their role to such supreme importance.

        They teeter right now as well. Whither they goest, so goes. the nation.

        • Fred says:


          Thanks for Jeffrey Tubin’s legal analysis. The jury found him not guilty. The prosecutor blew the case, the glove bit being a nice defense trick they should have been ready for. George Floyd was not tried, other than all those times that led to a lot of convictions, The police officers were. That wasn’t hysteria or mania either but part of the propaganda effort to label Trump and his supporters racists and damage the former’s ability to govern or otherwise obtain legislative successes.

    • Lysias says:

      Today’s Sunday Washington Post has a special section entitled “The Attack: The Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol was neither a spontaneous act nor an isolated event”. It reminds me of a 1933 Nazi pamphlet about the Reichstag Fire that I happen to possess a copy of: ” Bewaffneter Aufstand! Enthuellungen ueber den kommunistischen Umsturzversuch am Vorabend der nationalen Revolution” (Armed Insurrection!: Revelations about the communist attempt to overturn the government on the Eve of the National Revolution).

    Perhaps “Let it rip Brandon” is the next chant.

      Maybe Brandon did have a “bathroom accident” when meeting the Pope.

        Since I started taking megadoses of Vitamin D as a precaution against covid, I have been having problems with flatulence and diarrhea. It’s a nuisance, but it’s better than getting covid.

        • Deap says:

          This is a pretty sane article about Vit D -which has taken on rather magical properties of late, for some reason.

          Like Vit E, Vit D is a fat soluble vitamin and builds up in your body instead of getting excreted in the urine. So there are things to look for if taking large doses for a longer period of time.


          I on the other hand want to catch covid and get whatever natural immunity it may impart. Try as I might I can’t find anyone who can give it to me – went to a large post-election party where everyone was unmasked – a super-spreader event -but alas no symptoms to date.

          I am taking with my chances getting a 99.94% recovery flu. Each of us do have to make our own individual choices in face of the massive “covid” disinformation wars of the past two years.

        • JerseyJeffersonian says:

          As Deap noted in her reply, Vitamin D lingers in the tissues, unlike some vitamins which wash out quickly. And beyond that, it can begin floating around looking for something to do…

          I have for years taken esomeprazole (known also as Nexium) to control gastric acidity that can lead to heartburn, itself a symptom of some degree of gastric reflux. I suffered from this, likely something found in my genetic legacy as my mother also was afflicted with this. And as an asthmatic, gastric juices being inhaled when sleeping was bad juju, hence the esomeprazole. Unfortunately, that drug interferes with the uptake of calcium into the bones, a potentially serious issue, particularly as one ages. Vitamin D3 is helpful in restoring the uptake of calcium in the bones, and also in the reduction of inflammatory processes, so I was taking it in a 5000iu dosage daily, thinking this would be a good thing.

          Back to that thing where the tissues store it, and then it begins to freely float. Well, while calcium uptake into the bones is a good thing, all of that Vitamin D3 floating around can also facilitate the growth of calcitic kidney stones, something that I learned to my sorrow (helped along by my then substantial consumption of black tea, another risk factor for kidney stones). Trust me, you do not want kidney stones; they are exceedingly painful, and may need to be surgically remediated. This was done for me via laser lithotripsy, which operation sadly was botched when the operator blasted a hole through my abdominal wall and into my small intestine, releasing gut bacteria which caused a massive case of peritonitis, potentially life-threatening, and resulting in emergency surgery, a long recovery, and a subsequent operation to support my abdominal musculature (all cut to gain access to the laser-damaged tissues) by means of a large patch of surgical mesh.

          If you harbor concerns about your intake of Vitamin D3, have your blood screened for its level, and adjust accordingly. My GP alerted me to a very elevated blood serum level, and my own research on this gave me the understanding on how much to reduce my dosage while still maintaining the healthy inmune system to which you, too, aspire.

          Watch those dietary supplements, including herbal remedies, as problems can creep up on you when you are trying to support your body’s well being. MDs and DOs, being trained in iatrogenic medicine, may not spot these issues, even if you inform them of your usage of dietary supplements and medicinal herbs.

          My apologies for the longwindedness of this comment, but if it helps you to avoid problems, then it will have been worth your time to bear with me as I beat your ear.


          • Lysias says:

            My Vitamin D blood content, when I had it measured some months ago, was 84 ng/ mL, which I understand is perfectly safe. You have to take an awful lot of Vitamin D to have the level go up to dangerous levels. The curve is logarithmic.

    Compare and contrast:
    @MartinKulldorff quotes a powerful essay on masking & slavery in history by Prof. Roberto Strongman
    @CDCDirector makes a clearly false statement about the efficacy of masking.

    Which deserves twitter’s ‘misleading’ label?


    Will all those who gave us lockdowns, fear porn and broke long standing approaches to public health policy ever be held to account?

    And what about those that engineered the virus?

  10. Sam says:

    “I know some people seem to not want to give up on the wonderful pandemic, but you know what? It’s over…You shouldn’t have to wear masks…vaxx, mask, pick one! You can’t make me mask if I’ve had the vaxx… the red states are a joy and the blue states are a pain in the ass.”


    Yes. There’s a huge contrast for total outcomes between the red and blue states. Covid fear porn hysterics had a single lens. They had myopia as they couldn’t or wouldn’t consider the myriad of other factors in public health policy. Making it clear the lockdown and masking theater had nothing to do with public health.
