Joe Biden isn't in charge of his administration, we all know that; the man can't speak half the time and the other half, he can't remember what he is saying or what he has said. When he's not whispering into microphones in that creepy manner he's now made infamous, he's actually looking at cheat sheets to figure out which reporter to call on first. And these aren't 'new' issues; he had them all throughout his campaign last year, so if you voted for him anyway, shame on you.
No, Biden's not running things; it's Barack Obama behind the scenes through surrogates like Susan Rice; he is implementing some of the same tyrannical schemes he used during his tenure when he 1) ran guns into Mexico; 2) sicced the IRS on his political opponents; 3) issued blatantly unconstitutional edicts like his DACA immigration plan; and 4) signed an unconstitutional health care bill into law.
Since taking over Biden's regime, he has now overseen a complete collapse of the southwest border, a supply change crisis, rising inflation, skyrocketing energy prices and an illegal vaccine mandate which he, through Biden, is now threatening to enforce using the power of the very corrupt federal law enforcement system and government bureaucracies.
In early September, Biden issued a COVID-19 vaccine mandate to private businesses with 100 or more employees; we're not sure how 'he' decided that businesses with 100 or more employees were more at risk of the virus than those with 99 or fewer employees, but nothing this regime does makes sense.
The rule finally dropped late last month; OSHA claimed some obscure emergency authority to issue the mandate. And since then, Biden has threatened to use the full force of the government, Gestapo-like, to enforce this unconstitutional intrusion into the private sector, as Breitbart News reports:
President Joe Biden’s administration warned Thursday there would be “planned inspections” and heavy fines to ensure businesses comply with a new coronavirus vaccine mandate set for a Jan. 4th deadline.
A senior Biden official spoke to reporters about their planned enforcement measures prior to leveling an Occupational Safety and Public Health requirement for businesses with over 100 employees to get them vaccinated for the coronavirus or test unvaccinated employees weekly and require them to wear masks.
“We also will be having some programmed or planned inspections where we do go to workplaces to check to make certain that the workplace is in compliance with the rule,” the official said, adding that most of the enforcement efforts would be aimed at companies where employee complaints were the highest.
Snitches, in other words.
"Employers face a standard penalty of $14,000 per violation, which could escalate if they refuse to be compliant. Willful or repeated violations of the rule could cost as much as $136,532," the news outlet noted.
“For example, if we identify that an employer is willfully violating a standard, then that penalty is significantly higher than a workplace that is not willfully doing so,” the official said.
“Termination would really only occur if, after providing a facility with an opportunity to make corrections and come into compliance, they chose not to do so,” said the official, regarding what enforcement actions the government would take against healthcare facilities receiving federal Medicare and/or Medicaid funding.
“The bottom line is: Vaccination requirements work,” the official concluded. “And the actions we’re taking tomorrow will lead to millions of Americans getting vaccinated, protecting workers, saving lives, strengthening our economy, and helping it to accelerate our path out of this pandemic.”
No, the 'bottom line' is that this is America, and we have a Constitution and a 10th Amendment that does not give the federal government this kind of power over states. Enough already.
