HERE WE GO: Arizona sues Biden, DeSantis sues Florida city over vaccine mandates

Arizona has just filed a lawsuit against Darth Biden for his absurd vaccinate mandate policy he announced last week:

BUSINESS INSIDER – Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration over its vaccine mandates, the first of several threatened cases from Republicans.

In the complaint submitted Tuesday, Brnovich called the policy is “unconstitutional,” appearing to focus his argument on the claim that it unfairly does not apply to migrants who enter the US illegally.

President Joe Biden on Thursday announced sweeping vaccine mandates for federal employees and federal contractors, and mandatory vaccination or weekly testing for all businesses with more than 100 employees.

Other states like Georgia, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Wyoming, as well as the Republican National Committee (RNC), have expressed their intent to challenge Biden’s mandates.

Meanwhile Governor DeSantis and his Attorney General Ashley Moody are suing city of Gainesville for compelling government employees to get the vaccine or be fired:

DC EXAMINER – It didn’t take long for the state to take action after Gov. Ron DeSantis affirmed Monday that under a new state law, Florida will fine local governments $5,000 for each employee required to be vaccinated, threatening some municipalities with punitive levies of “millions and millions of dollars.”

“We are not going to let people get fired because of the vaccine mandate,” DeSantis said in Alachua County where the city of Gainesville is requiring all its workers get vaccinated as a condition of employment.

“You don’t just cast aside people who have been serving faithfully over this issue, over what’s basically a personal choice over their individual health,” the governor said.

More than 200 Gainesville employees, including police and firefighters, have sued the city, which is requiring they be vaccinated by the end of September or lose their jobs.

Many were on hand to hear DeSantis, state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody say the state would join their legal action.

“You now have the attorney general in the state of Florida in your corner,” Moody said, announcing she’d filed an amicus brief Monday supporting their suit, contending the requirement was “unlawful” under Senate Bill 2006, which bans businesses from requiring “vaccine passports” for customers or mandating vaccinations for employees with each violation drawing a $5,000 fine.

Under a newly adopted state Department of Health (DOH) rule, SB 2006’s penalties can be levied beginning Thursday.

“We have never given (local governments) that power to do something like this,” Moody said. “It is unlawful. It is unconscionable that we would trust these folks to throw themselves in front of a bullet for other people, but we don’t trust them to make a decision for their own safety. It is unconscionable.”

Gainesville’s policy goes against “the science,” DeSantis said, because it doesn’t include provisions for those who’ve had COVID and developed natural antibodies to the virus.

“Many of them have already had COVID, OK?” DeSantis said. “They’ve had COVID, they’ve recovered, and most of them — well, the ones who have recovered — have very strong immunity.”

DeSantis is exactly right, as always. These employees, who have done nothing wrong, are now having their jobs threatened by a fascist government policy that interferes with their personal choice on whether to get the jab or not. And as DeSantis points out, for some of them it is wholly unnecessary because they already have natural COVID antibodies.

We live in very strange times and this authoritarianism must be challenged and defeated, or else American will end up looking like Australia.
