LGB Admin To Appeal Mask Mandate Ruling

You don’t need masks in the White House briefing room, but, they want you to wear them on airplanes, trains, buses, and in transit centers

Biden Admin Poised To Appeal Court Ruling That Overturned Travel Mask Mandate

President Joe Biden’s administration is poised to appeal a federal judge’s ruling striking down the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) mask mandate for public transportation.

District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle of Florida’s middle district issued the ruling on Monday afternoon. By Monday evening, an administration official conceded that masking for public transportation “is not in effect at this time.” The official, however, also noted that “agencies are reviewing the decision and assessing potential next steps,” indicating an appeal was not off the table.

“The Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) disagree with the district court’s decision and will appeal, subject to CDC’s conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health,” the Department of Justice (DOJ) subsequently announced Tuesday evening.

“If CDC concludes that a mandatory order remains necessary for the public’s health after that assessment, the Department of Justice will appeal the district court’s decision,” the DOJ statement added.

The Biden administration’s public transportation masking order was one of the last restrictions remaining from the COVID-19 global pandemic. The directive recently sparked backlash from several major airlines.

There’s almost nowhere left that requires masks. Most other countries have done away with them. Philly, also known as Killadephia, reimposed one and is now being sued. Some transit, such as the LA Metro, which almost no one takes, kept is mandate.

Of course, the Let’s Go Brandon admin will have a tough time making an argument before the judicial branch when Biden is for choice

  1. Knowing that the decision was before a brilliant and highly-qualified judge, who had clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, one wonders why the Justice Department didn’t have an emergency appeal and request to stay the judge’s order ready to go the moment the judge’s decision was handed down.

    But let’s face facts: the public are simply done with mask mandates; the people have been voting with their bare faces against these useless orders.

    Ana Cabrera, a CNN anchor, tweeted:

    Just boarded a flight to Atlanta. I think I’ll stick with my mask a little longer. (I’d say it’s about 50-50 on this flight. Everyone treating each other respectfully)

    That’s the perfect response: people behaving the way they think best, for themselves, and not Karening around trying to impose their beliefs on others.

      Mx Dana lied to you-uns again. Judge Mizelle was rated “Not Qualified” by the ABA based on her complete and total lack of trial experience.

      The American Bar Association did not call her unqualified based on anything but her lack of experience, saying:

      “Ms. Mizelle has a very keen intellect, a strong work ethic and an impressive resume,” the letter states. “She presents as a delightful person and she has many friends who support her nomination. Her integrity and demeanor are not in question. These attributes however simply do not compensate for the short time she has actually practiced law and her lack of meaningful trial experience.”

      She was nominated and confirmed because she was a right-wing attorney. “Nuff said.

  2. James Lewis says:

    I believe that masks do reduce some amount of spread. And the results in deaths per million in the US, around 3000, vs deaths per million in Japan, around 280, and other countries that have historically worn masks, argue strongly for their use.

    But them Left, bless their little “I must tell you what to hearts,” first said we don’t need’em and then said we do.

    Americans have a long history of working together when given facts and ASKED to do things.

    But they didn’t.

    Americans do not like to be “mandated.”
