In an emergency hearing on Friday, January 7th, 2022 the United States Supreme Court heard arguments on the Biden Administration’s legal authority to implement an emergency temporary standard unilaterally issued by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The OSHA standard as written forces every employee to either show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing to show they aren’t infected.
The Supreme Court’s decision to allow or deny enforcement of OSHA’s Mandate will affect every company employing 100 or more people, or approximately 61.1% of all US workers based on 2014 Census Data.
“Omicron is as deadly as Delta … we have hospitals that are almost at full capacity with people severely ill on ventilators. We have over 100,000 children, which we have never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators.”
- Liberal US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, January 7th, 2022
Also Not true:
“I mean, you know, 750 million new cases [of COVID-19] yesterday or close to that is, uh, a lot. I don’t mean to be facetious, but that’s, that’s what I said.”
- Liberal US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, January 7th, 2022
And Also Not true:
“We all know what the best policy is. By this point, two years later, we know that the best way to prevent spread is to get vaccinated. And to prevent dangerous illness and death, is for people to get vaccinated. That is by far the best. The second best is to wear masks. And so this is a policy that says ‘we are still confronting thousands of people dying every time we look around and so we are going to put into place the policy we know works best, which is to strongly incentivize vaccination and insist that unvaccinated people will wear masks and test.”
- Liberal US Supreme Court Justice Elana Kagan, January 7th, 2022
To date, the Omicron variant of COVID-19 grows 70 times faster in the body and is up to 10 times more contagious than the Delta variant, but is 100 times less fatal. As for children age 0 to 17 years old, the seven-day moving average of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 was 766 on January 4th, 2022.
On January 6th, 2022 there were approximately 802,610 new reported cases of COVID-19 in the United States, not 750,000,000 as Justice Breyer reported.
Fully vaccinated people can spread the COVID-19 virus, and as of this posting most of the reported cases of Omicron infection have been among vaccinated people. In addition, at least 30 different scientific studies show face masks are ineffective at stopping the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus.
Also Absolutely True:
“The Constitution does not specify qualifications for Justices such as age, education, profession, or native-born citizenship. A Justice does not have to be a lawyer or a law school graduate…”

Thankfully, Liberal Justices Sotomayor, Kagan, or Breyer are Doctors, and don’t play one on TV. Because unlike being a Supreme Court Justice – the most powerful judge in the United States – there are professional qualifications to be a Doctor or even an Actor.
