Supreme Court heard cases regarding the constitutionality of President Biden's mandate to have all companies of over 100 employees provide proof of vaccination. While many are debating over the legality of such a mandate and how it applies to their freedom to choose for themselves regarding their health, the Supreme Court is operating on misleading information.
While three justices confirmed that they were indeed in favor of vaccine mandates, even declaring that the federal government has dominion over state's rights, the justices were working on false information. They stated their opinion with their information that has been proven to be false as though it were factual and relevant to how they would vote.
Justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor were amongst the most ill-informed justices sitting on the bench calling into question whether or not the justices were activists.
Justice Sotomayor who attended the hearing remotely was perhaps the worst offended of inaccurate and possibly divisive information. She openly claimed "hospitals are almost all full capacity" and there are "over 100,000 children" hospitalized with covid "many on ventilators."
According to the Washington Examiner,
Regarding her claim about children, I have absolutely no idea where she’s getting that 100,000 figure. The current national pediatric COVID-19 census from the Department of Health and Human Services shows 3,342 children with COVID-19 in hospitals. And, as Anthony Fauci admitted last week, there is a huge difference between children hospitalized by COVID-19 and those hospitalized with COVID-19. The vast majority of pediatric cases are from children hospitalized with COVID-19, meaning they were hospitalized by something else first and happened to test positive at about that same time.
She even pushed back on the term "Mandate. "There's no requirement here. It's not a vaccine mandate. It's something different. And I don't know how much clearer than six fifty-one Congress could have been," Sotomayor said during the oral arguments.
She went on to claim, "the Omicron variant is just as deadly as the Delta variant." This is easily disproven. A state-by-state analysis shows Omicron is a fraction as deadly as the wild or Delta variants.
The most egregious assertation the Sotomayor dispelled is that "the federal government can mandate vaccines using its “police power.” Is she insinuating the federal government can suddenly usurp the 10th Amendment?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Even Justice Breyer made a major gaffe, claiming there were “750 million new cases yesterday.” Oddly, the United States has a population of 330 million people. Perhaps Justice Breyer should have used google to substantiate whether or not his claim is valid.
In a few hours, the American public will know how the Supreme Court will rule on this mandate. Hopefully, cooler more informed heads will understand that the federal government should not be using the "police-state" based on faulty or inaccurate information.
