    The fourth branch of government: an unofficial term for the collection of federal regulatory agencies that impose fascist, centralized control over every aspect of our lives. Ryan McMaken of the Mises Institute equates it to the Deep State, and adds a befitting if gory aspect, calling it the “headless” fourth branch of government. In a 2019 Mises Wire article, McMaken quotes Garet Garrett’s book Ex America: These agencies have built up a large body of administrative law which the people are obliged to obey. And not only do they make their own laws; they enforce their own laws, acting as...

    In its latest effort to make permanent pandemic-era mandates for health care workers, the federal agency regulating workplace safety has submitted a final draft of rules to the White House budget office for review. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which sees exposure to COVID-19 as a matter of workplace safety, in June 2021 issued a temporary emergency standard for health care facilities that include requirements around screening, ventilation, physical distancing, physical barriers, cleaning and disinfection, and masks. In December 2021, however, OSHA announced that it would stop enforcing all temporary emergency standard requirements except for a few related...

    A tree trimmer died after falling into a wood chipper Tuesday, police in California reported. Shortly before 1pm on Tuesday, a tree trimmer in Menlo Park, roughly 30 miles south of San Francisco, accidentally fell into a wood chipper and died, according to ABC News. “When police units arrived on scene, a male subject was found deceased from injuries sustained in the incident,” Menlo Park police department told the outlet, confirming the fatality. Video footage of the scene was released by CBS News showing the wood chipper with a yellow tarp covering part of the machine. The street was closed...
  • WARNING: Terrorist May Have Gotten Hands On Nerve Agent Stockpile

    Liberty One News ^ | Erica Carlin
    Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a concerning report that states that terrorists may have gotten their hands on some very deadly nerve agents stored away in stockpiles. The reports [see below] don’t explain when or how the alleged terrorists might have gotten ahold of the stockpiles but it certainly makes me wish that US borders were still secure. OSHA’s report reads; “Because of recent terrorist events, many workers have expressed concern about the possibility of a terrorist attack involving nerve agents. In 1995, twelve people were killed when the nerve agent sarin was released in the Tokyo subway...

    Tuesday, Joe Biden’s Department of Labor rescinded the COVID-19 vaccination or testing requirement for U.S. companies employing 100 or more people after the Supreme Court blocked the regulation. ‘The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration is withdrawing the vaccination and testing emergency temporary standard issued on Nov. 5, 2021, to protect unvaccinated employees of large employers with 100 or more employees from workplace exposure to coronavirus. The withdrawal is effective January 26, 2022.’ The administration has now ended its controversial campaign to boost vaccination rates after they plateaued over the summer. OSHA announced in the federal register...

    "Withdraws emergency order impacting 85 million Americans, but says it will push for permanent rule The Biden administration announced Tuesday it is withdrawing an emergency order mandating large employers vaccinate or regularly test their workers for COVID-19, but instead will be pushing for a permanent rule. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will formally withdraw the order on Wednesday, according to a draft of the memo to be published in the Federal Register. The agency is not dropping the rule entirely, however, planning to keep the order as a “proposed rule.” The original order would have impacted some 85...

    Let's say I claim the right to collect tolls on the Brooklyn Bridge. (I need cash, you know, and there’s money there). So, I fly to New York; I erect tollgates, and I start collecting tolls from cars and trucks crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. Now, as you might imagine, I have no right to do this. I just did it, and dared people to stop me. Well, people did. They didn’t waste much time, either. Let’s assume that people sued me, and it went all the way to the Supreme Court, where SCOTUS said "This is ridiculous! John, you don't...

    The conservative majority of justices on the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday blocked President Biden's COVID vaccination policy, stating that the administration had overstepped its authority with the rule, which would’ve applied to more than 80 million workers. Marcia Coyle, of The National Law Journal, and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, join John Yang to discuss....John Yang:And do you think you can (get to the rest of the people that either aren't vaccinated or don't want to be vaccinated)? Do you think you can add on to these numbers? The people who have already been vaccinated, do you think is it...

    Joe Biden wants everyone to be vaccinated against the China Virus commonly known as Covid-19. Whether that’s a good idea or not is at this point an open question. The vaccines and boosters currently available appear to be ineffective at preventing people from catching the virus, but there is evidence often interpreted as proof that they are effective in reducing the danger of the virus to those who do catch it. There is also evidence often interpreted as proof that they are dangerous, often causing severe heart ailments in otherwise healthy people. The oddity here is that the virus may...

    For companies that were waiting to hear from the U.S. Supreme Court before deciding whether to require vaccinations or regular coronavirus testing for workers, the next move is up to them. Many large corporations were silent on Thursday’s ruling by the high court to block a requirement that workers at businesses with at least 100 employees be fully vaccinated or else test regularly for COVID-19 and wear a mask on the job. ...Dan Simons, co-owner of the Founding Farmers chain of restaurants in the Washington area, said vaccine mandates are “common sense.” He requires his 1,000 employees to be fully...

    The Supreme Court came in today with a decision blocking the Biden administration’s OSHA mandate on private businesses with 100 or more employees requiring that employees be vaccinated or tested weekly. The Court ruled they didn’t have the unilateral power to impose such a mandate. The Court did, however, allow a vaccine mandate for workers at federally funded health care facilities to take effect nationwide.Not only did the Court soundly reject Joe Biden in the effort to impose his will on private businesses, Justice Neil Gorsuch also reserved a few words for White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.When the...

Parts of the rule, which the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued in November, had been scheduled to take effect on Monday.Vaccine mandates have been a controversial approach to battling the pandemic. United Airlines and Tyson Foods are among the major companies that already have such requirements, but many others are waiting for legal battles to be resolved.Walmart, Amazon and JPMorgan Chase, three of the largest private employers in the United States,...

    The U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on large private businesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Thursday, but upheld a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate. The decision on the OSHA mandate was 6-3; the decision on the CMS mandate was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joining the court’s three Democratic appointees in upholding it. As Breitbart News reported last week, the Court had appeared skeptical of the mandates during oral arguments, especially the OSHA mandate, as Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar struggled to identify the statutory...

    In Supreme Court arguments on the OSHA COVID Vaccination Mandate case, the “Wise Latina” revealed at least Sixth Degree Stupidity for all to see. One should not casually suggest that a graduate of law school who has ascended through the ranks to the highest Court in the land is stupid. But that is the inescapable conclusion her performance requires. For those who missed the demonstration of her upward failure, we must present the details. But first, we must look at the question the Supreme Court is supposedly trying to address. Justice Kavanaugh granted the emergency appeal in NFIB v OSHA,...

    resident Joe Biden is not chastened by the Supreme Court smackdown .. when the justices invalidated the eviction moratorium that even administration officials acknowledge was patently lawless right before Biden reissued it. ... The administration is similarly well aware that the national vaccine mandate that the resident is poised to issue is unlawful. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain made the obvious explicit by retweeting a progressive commentator’s observation that the ploy of imposing the vaccine requirement as a workplace-safety rule under OSHA .. is the “ultimate work-around.” Translation: The resident knows that an executive order mandating COVID vaccination...

    Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on Friday cited the Biden administration's admission that his COVID mandate for Americans is a "work-around," a path that essentially goes around what the law would require or allow. His comments came as the six-member majority of the court that appear to be more conservative hinted about their decision in the pending case that challenges Joe Biden's demands that health care workers, and workers at large companies, can be forced to accept the experimental COVID shots. Fox News noted that the justices seemed "split along ideological lines on vaccine requirements affecting nearly 100 million...
