Joe Biden Admits His National Mask Mandate Would Be Unconstitutional

You’d think this type of information would be somewhat news worthy, wouldn’t you? Yet, the only outlets covering this are a few Conservative leaning ones, including Breitbart, but nothing from the ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Washington Post, LA Times, NY Times, or other big outlets

Joe Biden walks back his national mask mandate, admits it would probably be unconstitutional

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden declared on Aug. 13 that he would call for a nationwide face mask mandate. “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months, at a minimum,” Biden said in August. “Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide starting immediately, and we will save lives.”

Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), eagerly approved of Biden’s mask mandate. “That’s what real leadership looks like,” Harris said on the same day. “We just witnessed real leadership. Which is Joe Biden said that as a nation, we should all be wearing a mask for the next three months, because it will save lives.”

During Biden’s acceptance speech on the final night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, he firmly declared that he would implement a national mask mandate if elected president.

“We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask — not as a burden, but to protect each other,” Biden said on Aug. 20 at the 2020 DNC. “It’s a patriotic duty.”

Of course, if he wins, he wouldn’t be able to do this till January 21st, 2021, and we all know that COVID19 restrictions will disappear the day after the election if he wins. And there is some data suggesting that the explosion of confirmed cases occurred after the mask mandates in states, cities, and counties exploded. And some data to suggest the opposite. Regardless, the one thing I don’t like is that people feel emboldened to get close since they are wearing a mask. Stay back. Anyhow, I digress

However, Biden walked back his national mask mandate on Sunday, admitting that it would probably be unconstitutional.

Dennis Welch, political editor of the Arizona’s Family publication and host of “Politics Unplugged,” asked Biden about instituting a stronger federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, such as a national mask mandate.

“Here’s the deal, the federal government…there’s a constitutional issue whether the federal government could issue such a mandate, I don’t think constitutionally they could, so I wouldn’t issue a mandate,” Biden said.

Oops? So all the rage-whining at Trump for refusing to institute a national mask mandate is based on a lie? He continued on (from the Breitbart article)

He said he would ask governors, mayors, county executives — anyone in authority — to impose one.

“I’m a constitutionalist,” Biden declared. “You can’t do things the Constitution does not allow you the power to do.”

He can ask, but, those who were going to do so have done so. As for being a constitutionalist, what did he tell Barack when he signed an order for DACA? How long do they want us wearing masks? On the bright side, they can hide our facial expressions from people, if you can work on keeping your eyes out of it.

    The obvious point is that the esteemed Mr Biden has assumed that state Governors and city Mayors have the legal and constitutional authority to issue mandatory face mask orders. They do not.

    Oh, I’m sure that some state courts will say that they do, and I’m guessing that the state Supreme Court will uphold Reichsstatthalter Andy Beshear’s (NSDAP-KY) executive orders. After all, they took the unusual step of squashing all lower court injunctions against Herr Beshear’s orders until they could rule on them themselves, and then put off even hearing the cases until September 17th, meaning the executive orders could not be challenged, and remain in force, until the court finally rules . . . which could be months from now. Even if they overturn his executive orders, they might delay it so long that the COVID problem is essentially over. The Reichsstatthalter might then vacate them all, and the court decide that the questions are moot, taking no further action, and thus leaving them as legally constitutional.

    But not just no, but Hell no! The Reich Governor issued orders closing churches, a violation of the First Amendment’s guarantee of free exercise of religion. He issued orders restricting the right to peaceably assemble guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. The [insert slang term for the rectum here] has issued orders stating that no more than ten people can gather at your own home, on your own property. Well, f(ornicate) him!

    In the tiny state of Wyoming radicals descended upon the Capital in Cheyenne, Wyoming and those evil conservatives.

    They PRAYED and WORSHIPED. Hugged each other, carried flags and spoke good things about America.

    Ah the land of the Red. Meanwhile in the land of blue, BLM and Antifa are smashing windows at restaurants and oh by the way they have now changed their tactics friends. They are now marching in the Suburbs and forcing the police to use tear gas which seeps into HOMES of the burbanites.

    A new poll is showing Trump quickly closing the ground in the suburbs particularly among Women voters.

    Yet fear not democrats, mail in voting will ensure Joe Biden wins, thats why all the fake polls have him up by 10-12-15 points so YOU wont be surprised when the democrats steal the election.
