This past Wednesday, the Biden administration put forth an announcement that is it going to be suspending its mandate that would force private employers to force vaccinations or COVID-19 tests on their employees over pending litigation.

“On November 12, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard, published on November 5, 2021 (86 Fed. Reg. 61402) (‘ETS’),” the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released a statement this past Wednesday morning. “The court ordered that OSHA ‘take no steps to implement or enforce’ the ETS ‘until further court order.’ While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation.”

One news outlet, The Daily Wire, has put forth a petition aimed at Americans that is seeking signatures to show support for the outlet in its coming legal battle to take place against the administration of Old Uncle Joe. Over the weekend, the petition managed to garner over a half-million signatures and still continues to expand.

Taking up the defense of The Daily Wire in the suit is the Dhillon Law Group and Alliance Defending Freedom. They officially filed the legal challenge against Old Uncle Joe back on the 4th of November, just hours after OSHA put forth an almost 500 page set of regulations and standards seeking to explain the rule.

The new rule put forth the mandate that all companies employing over 100 people or more would be forced to make their workers get vaccinated or submit themselves to weekly COVID-19 testing. The order also placed penalties on companies which range up to $14,000 for each serious infraction and almost $140,000 for any willful violation.

“The Daily Wire will not comply with President Biden’s tyrannical vaccine mandate, and we are suing the Biden Administration to put a stop to their gross overreach,” stated Jeremy Boreing, the Daily Wire Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “President Biden, the federal government, social media, and the establishment media have conspired to rob Americans of their freedoms in the name of public health. They have broken faith with the American people through conflicting messaging, false information, and by suppressing data and perspectives with which they disagree.”

A stay on the order from Biden was put forth by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit back on the 6th of November in the wake of getting various petitions that “give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate,” as stated by the court.

Despite the order from the federal court system, the White House has continued to apply pressure to companies to make sure to prepare for the mandate.
