Surprise, surprise: The one time a domestic development happens that literally everyone but government mouthpiece Twitter are happy for, and the White House promptly moves to squash it.
And yes, the White House, to the surprise of no one, is going on the full-on attack after a court ruled against the CDC’s extreme overreach, specifically with regards to mask mandates.
Clearly, the White House just can’t stand DeSantis, who is highly likely to dethrone more than one Democrat in the future, having any victory at all.
And DeSantis was certainly victorious in an earlier court ruling this week.
“We are very happy that finally we have judicial relief for that unscientific mask mandate on airplanes,” DeSantis exclaimed, “they’ve treated these flight attendants horribly for so long — the passengers, horribly.”
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody also praised Trump-appointed Judge Mizelle’s decision, declaring “this rule, this order is completely outside the bounds of the scope of federal power as we have argued successfully in numerous other cases, the CDC and the federal government and the Biden administration never had the power to issue this order originally.”
Even Biden himself remarked that Americans could revert to “optional” masks, until one of his many handlers (perhaps the Easter Bunny again?) intervened and apparently ordered Biden to order the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) around, again.
Much in the same way he ordered around the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over vaccine approvals, prompting the resignation of two major officials after brazenly politicizing booster shots.
“To protect CDC’s public health authority beyond the ongoing assessment announced last week, CDC has asked DOJ to proceed with an appeal in Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc., et al., v. Biden, et al.,” the CDC intoned.
Ah, but of course. The CDC and DOJ tag-teaming yet again for tyranny.
Maybe they can go after some mask-less parents in school board meetings while they’re at it. Accuse them of something absurd, like “biological terrorism” or any other ludicrous accusation that’s apparently acceptable for “the left” these days.
“It is CDC’s continuing assessment that at this time an order requiring masking in the indoor transportation corridor remains necessary for the public health,” the statement continued, “CDC will continue to monitor public health conditions to determine whether such an order remains necessary. CDC believes this is a lawful order, well within CDC’s legal authority to protect public health.”
Note to the CDC: Any authoritarian state will always believe its orders are “lawful.”
After all, sudden, capricious decisions are the hallmark of authoritarianism, and it is no surprise that Judge Mizelle referred to the CDC as “capricious” in her written ruling.
A ruling that, curiously, no leftist seems to dispute based on content, so they attack Mizelle’s character instead.
Fauci, who has thankfully been quiet for a few minutes, immediately began fear mongering yet again, clearly eager to add to his $10M fortune, largely funded by COVID-related public appearances.
“It’s the greater transmissibility of the BA.2, it’s the relaxation of restriction, particularly in the context of indoor masking in congregate settings, and also the fact that immunity, due to both vaccination as well as people who have been previously infected, tends to wane with SARS-CoV-2 – particularly with omicron,” Fauci intoned.
Yes, heaven forbid someone catches the common cold.
How about guidelines based on the science, like the ones DeSantis has always followed?
“It’s not something that’s grounded in any science because if you have somebody sitting in the window seat and they’re nibbling on peanuts for two and a half hours, they can have their mask down,” DeSantis observed, “you have the person in the middle seat that is not eating, if they just wanted to read a magazine without the mask, somehow that would be a big problem.”
Liberal logic … debunked by DeSantis, one day at a time.
