Late Thursday, the Supreme Court voted 6-3 to block vaccine mandates for private companies with 100 or more employees.
However, the mandate for health professionals in Medicare and Medicaid funded facilities was maintained 5-4. Judges Roberts and Kavanaugh sided with more liberal judges Breyer, Kagan and Sotomayor.
The mandate for federal workers has not received the warm welcome Biden had hoped for.
Some federal employees have decided to fight back. On Thursday, a group called “Feds For Medical Freedom” announced they will march in protest against Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates for federal workers.
“The March To Defeat The Mandates” will take place in Washington DC on January 23. The group is a loose coalition of federal employees, firefighters and other first responders, and medical professionals.

In September, Joe Biden issued an executive order vaccinating all federal employees. Feds For Medical Freedom was created in response to that order. A quick read of the group’s website explains that they believe that “the government should not fire employees because of their health conditions or medically informed decisions about health care.”
The group’s statement on the website goes further and says:
“Now is not the time to give up established laws regarding workplace discrimination, informed consent to the use of unlicensed vaccines, and individualized assessments by employers. Members of the federal community work every day to ensure that the laws of the country are fairly applied to all citizens. Now they are fighting the government to make sure the law is fairly applied to all federal employees.”
Vaccination mandates violate our right to assemble peacefully

Joe Biden Is Using COVID To Divide Americans?
As Feds For Medical Freedom and those who support them prepare to make their voices heard, President Joe Biden appears to be dividing the nation between vaccinated and unvaccinated people.
He continues to use phrases like “pandemic of the unvaccinated” when we see those who have been vaccinated contracting the virus. Last month he also predicted a winter of “serious illness and death for the unvaccinated”.
But a campaign of terrifying tactics and blame may not be enough to convince Americans to give up their rights to make their own medical decisions. A page on the Feds For Medical Freedom website lists more than 20 pending lawsuits against the Biden administration.
All issues of civil liberty aside, there is no rational justification for vaccine mandates if the vaccine does not prevent transmission. What it doesn’t do. That should be the end of the discussion.
