OSHA, the new Gestapo

Merrium Webster defines Fascism as “a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition,” or (2) “a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control.”
What do you have when your president mandates things that are unconstitutional and illegal and has a host of unelected agencies to enforce his dictates?
A federal court last summer told President Biden that his rental eviction moratorium mandates were illegal, but he pushed forward anyway. Last weekend, a federal appeals court panel stayed the vaccine mandate for businesses with over 100 employees citing “grave statutory and constitutional issues.”
Twenty-seven states are fighting the same mandate as well as many private businesses and organizations who don’t believe it’s constitutional or ethical for the government to force private companies to discriminate and fire their employees who decide not to take the jab. Personal health freedom is gone. Free enterprise is wobbling. It’s being enforced by unelected bureaucrats and federal agencies rather than local law enforcement who won’t comply. Big Tech is suppressing information and nightly news is in lock step.
Small businesses are next. They can say, “Well it doesn’t apply to me, so I won’t protest. History has shown us that it’s done in steps. We, as small businesses, are next.
Never mind that the latest studies showing the efficacy wanes over several months down to as little as 13%, unlike the natural immunity. So to be fully vaccinated, you will for sure need regular boosters.
The Biden administration has told businesses to essentially ignore the laws and the federal courts and obey the government mandate. Maybe they will just pack the Supreme Court.
What amazes me is the outright disregard for what is legal. Politicians used to sneak around to accomplish their illegal activities in the dark. Like Watergate, the Russia Hoax, etc. Now they blatantly, in the open, dictate illegal demands on people and businesses. They will fine businesses $14,000 for each violation and more.
During the pandemic, businesses spent an unprecedented amount of money and resources to keep their employees and customers safe and the government spent unprecedented amounts of money, starting with the Trump administration, with bipartisan support to help employers keep employees in their jobs and now we’re driving employees away from their jobs. It doesn’t make sense and it’s not following the science or the law.
But following the law isn’t always respected. Regular decent people couldn’t believe it when defunding the police was actually supported. Decent people couldn’t believe it when the Hollywood types and Kamala Harris and progressive Democrats raised money to free the rioters with bail money. What message does that send? It encourages them to return to riot, beat and kill people. Any good parent knows that.
Now they are encouraging the cartels and millions from all over the world to break the law and continue to stream across our border, not only for amnesty, the right to vote, education and health care but now with cash bonuses of up to $450,000 for each person that is separated from their minor. When in custody, minors, by law I believe, are separated from adults (to avoid abuse). If the average American makes $50k a year and pays $10k a year in taxes, it will take 45 years for an average American to pay one of those awards. It’s unchecked and unsustainable. All of it.
Now the Army Corps of Engineers is studying another major pipeline to shut down like the Keystone pipeline. This again, decreases jobs and increases our dependence on other countries to supply us at a greater expense when we were energy dependent already.
And it’s all at a time when our supply chains are already challenged. Truck drivers who spend most of the time on the road and don’t want to be forced to get a jab will continue to quit.
We will have increased health care worker shortages and public safety problems. Companies will not be able to produce their products and services with less employees.
And it’s all just before Christmas. Couldn’t be worse timing for the economy, our families, or travelers with pilot shortages and trying to get through TSA at the airports.
It is clearly government overreach and weakens our country.
Will the government now put all those people back on unemployment when we were all just starting to get back on our feet? How much will that cost fewer businesses and taxpayers who are left to foot all the bills?
Remember the fascism definition that includes forcible suppression of opposition? We think we have freedom of speech for now, but last week Project Veritas, a group that does real undercover journalism with whistleblowers in many companies and agencies, was raided by the FBI. Project Veritas was offered and given a diary of President Biden’s daughter by a tipster, supposedly with “explosive” allegations about Biden.
Project Veritas did their due diligence. They could not verify it was Ashly Biden’s diary, so they tried to return it to the attorney representing the tipster and then actually gave the diary to law enforcement to ensure it could be returned to its rightful owner. It may have been real, but they never published it or did anything with the information.
This is what every credible journalist does. Their supposed “crime” was doing their jobs lawfully and honestly. So, now the Biden administration’s law enforcement is being used to squish journalism.
It just doesn’t make sense. None of it. It’s not right and it’s not even constitutional. It doesn’t make sense in any world. It’s not following the law or science.
