Mississippi Challenges Vaccine Mandate

 Attorney General Lynn Fitch and Governor Tate Reeves issued the following statements. 

 Attorney General Lynn Fitch

Yesterday, Attorney General Lynn Fitch, with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, filed a lawsuit to halt President Biden’s vastly overreaching vaccination mandate for federal contractors.

“In an effort to check the box on universal vaccination,” said Attorney General Lynn Fitch, “President Biden has vastly overreached his authority, putting the jobs of one-fifth of the American workforce in jeopardy and violating vital principles, including state sovereignty, the rule of law, and religious liberty.   The very fact that his own Administration is contradicting itself in directives carrying out his mandate is strong evidence of its lack of any foundation in fact or law.   State Attorneys General asked the President to halt the mandate, and in the absence
of any response, we are taking this legal action.”

The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, asks the court to find the federal contractor vaccine mandate is unlawful and enjoin its implementation.   Amongst other claims, the complaint notes that:

• The Administration failed to even try to connect its mandate with any statutory language that might authorize taking the action.

• The mandate violates the Nondelegation Doctrine by taking actions not authorized by Congress.

• The mandate violates the Tenth Amendment by encroaching on States’ traditional police power, again, without any clear Congressional authority to do so.

• The mandate violates the Spending Clause by asking contractors, including many State agencies, to comply with highly ambiguous guidance applying to contractual relationships already in place.

• The Administration failed to follow even the most rudimentary public protections for notice and comment publication in the Federal Register and rulemaking under the Administrative Procedures Act.

• By failing to even attempt to provide a reason or explanation for its conclusory actions, particularly on a matter of such significant economic impact and with overwhelming reliance interests at stake, the Administration’s actions are arbitrary and capricious.

Governor Tate Reeves

 Mississippi today announced the filing of a lawsuit to stop President Biden’s unconstitutional, unlawful, and overreaching federal contractor vaccine mandate. The lawsuit seeks to declare the contractor vaccine mandate unlawful and prevent its enforcement. The Governor’s Office is working closely with the Attorney General’s Office to file a second lawsuit shortly, challenging the OSHA vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more workers.

“The Biden administration has time and time again shown a total disregard for Americans’ individual liberties,” said Governor Tate Reeves. “Their previous lie about not forcing vaccine mandates on the American people was just another example of their lengthy track record of not telling the truth. With this lawsuit, Mississippi is stepping up to defend its people against the Biden administration’s relentless attacks on freedom and personal choice. We will continue to use every tool at our disposal to stop President Biden’s flagrant abuse of power.”

Key arguments in the lawsuit include:
  • President Biden has exceeded his authority by mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees of federal contractors and subcontractors.
  • Federal agencies failed to follow the required procedures to adopt a federal contractor vaccine mandate and their actions were unlawful, arbitrary, and capricious.
  • The contractor vaccine mandate is an exercise of nonexistent federal police powers over matters of public health and violates the 10th Amendment.
  • The contractor vaccine mandate violates other provisions of the Constitution including the Nondelegation Clause, the Anti-Commandeering Doctrine, and the Spending Clause.

“The Biden Regime has used World War II Era procurement laws to impose a vaccine mandate on one-fifth of all Americans,” said Governor Tate Reeves. “The unprecedented and clearly unconstitutional contractor vaccine mandate is the desperate act of a fading tyrant frustrated by Americans exercising their fundamental rights of freedom and self-determination.”

Took them long enough. Could have avoided this years ago had Gunn and Tater voted on vaccine rights. As we already know, Rino gonna do Rino things. Tate has taken the money....he's not really giving two squats about those who can vote. We will not forget.

This is not just ill-informed, but legal incompetence.

Not only is precedent been in effect since 1905 but the Supreme Court has refused to hear or dismissed other challenges.

Moreover, these vaccines are the most " tested" now in history in that it's been put in more arms and even with ages 5-11, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have approved usage and been dispelling all the crazy misinformation of harm. The approval of comparable academies in Great Britain and India have done the same.

This vaccine has been tested on animals and tracked in all the children and women and men and pregnant women who've received it worldwide.

It does NOT cause infertility or alter genetics and the inclusion of "tracking" devices is the stuff of those out of touch with reality.

These folks did not think it necessary in every instance to point out that the vast majority of children 5-11 have not gone through puberty. It's a gross misunderstanding to think the infertile ( no puberty) can be made infertile by a the disease of CV 19 damaging the reproductive organs is a far greater risk! HINT: Guys who get mumps after puberty can be left infertile but not males who haven't gone through puberty. It's why you grandmothers used to try to get their sons exposed early and were distressed when one of them seemed resistant.

Far more tests are indicating ( not replicated as yet) that CV19 may be able to penetrate the brain. You don't have to know you have had it to be at risk from the virus.

The virus is LIVE, the vaccines do NOT contain a LIVE virus! Be glad!

When are some of you going to face the fact that your sources of information keep proving to be wrong?!

Doctors can become mentally ill and get dementia just like laborers can! You want someone who has a relevant specialty in the area and is still active in it! A specialist in orthopedics who hasn't focused or kept up with virology or fertility etc. in the last decades is not the best source of information and if it's your shrink, they may be gaging how in touch with reality YOU are!

The Governor is suing, yet state agencies like the Public Utilities Staff which he oversees is still working from home. Double standard?

It’s a smokescreen. How do we know? Look at the hospitals and universities firing people for not getting jabbed.

Lynn, if you are reading this, let it be known this observation has not been missed.

The CDC admits to 16,000 deaths caused by the “vaccine” and it hasn’t even been out very long. We used to recall vaccines if they even killed a handful of people. Animal testing was done and they had to halt the tests because it killed all the animals. We now know the shot doesn’t keep from catching or spreading the virus.

11:24 : Well written and credit to you for being so ummmmmmm on point with the agenda. Now where do you stand on our God given rights to choose ? I would note you didn't mention heart issues in teen boys who took this EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE that we wouldn't even know about had it not been for Big Tony and his GoF research ! Is the obvious lost on you ? This was no accident.

Can we just buyout the attorney general’s salary and not have one for a while? It would leave us with the same results only with less embarrassment for the state.

Rest assured, the vaccine existed waaaaaaay before Faucis GoF research

He’s on camera saying it

12:51 Source it! And not from your fake conspiracy sites!

1:02 What about God given rights for the rest of us who don't want to share your virus! You have your rights as long as they don't affect anyone else.

And Tate, come on, focus on what matters to this State! Help our Capitol City. Govern. Lead.

And 10:59 He is no "Rino". He's about as far right and up under Trump as you can get.

I know this video is over three hours long but I would encourage everyone to watch as much of it as they have time for. Or perhaps pick a point at random and give it 10 minutes or so and see what you think.

this is a roundtable discussion earlier this week hosted by Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin discussing vaccine injuries and the vaccine mandate.

The Takeaway is that currently there is no compensation whatsoever for people who have become injured by the vaccine and Congress should either fund the program or designate a different compensation program if they are in the business of forcing the vaccine on everyone.

And in other news, Target sues Walmart and Burger King sues McDonald's because neither will let the other tell it how to run its business.

Here's a prediction: the district doesn't matter unless Lynn gets bench-slapped and takes a hint, if not, hammered at the 5th, and if she is as big an idiot as she seems, it gets very short shrift at the SCOTUS. Here's another prediction: the sun will rise in the east and set in the west for the rest of the weekend AND all of next week. These two pandering buffoons would be embarrassments to this state if it were actually possible to embarrass this state.

If you read the complaint, go to the "respectfully submitted" page, you will see that, actually, Lousisiana filed this suit with Mississippi joining in it. Apparently a law firm in Salt Lake City actually drafted the complaint. Lynn Fitch has not filed suit; Lynn Fitch joined a suit filed by Louisiana, a suit begun with a complaint drafted by neither attorney general.

Then we have Gerard Gibbert yacking mindlessly about who can and who cannot be mandated to take a vaccine and who cannot be told by the governor to support the AG's 'efforts' to challenge. Tate is in a fog. So is Gibbert.

Does it not occur to Gerard that Tate's mandate regarding 'support from all who I manage and control' is a violation of the Federal Hatch Act? And before Gerard bolts up out of his recliner and spills his hot chocolate, let him be reminded that many of 'those whom the guv dictates to' are partly or fully federally funded as are their superiors and The Act applies to those folks.

Gerard needs to hold off on demanding that Ryno immediately Google shit for him and admit that there are some things about which he has no clue. I know that's hard for a man of his success and ego...but, hell.

"Freedom was not just a song by George Michael! Suck it woke mob!"

You sir are a fiend! By what right do you presume to reveal Lynn's cunning stunt to play a cut-rate Hamilton Burger in this unsettled and important area of constitutional law? My good man, there can be no doubt that she, as a well-respected Constitutional scholar and by virtue of her hallowed position as the AG of Mississippi, has the clear authority to dictate the employment policy of the federal government to the federal government. To quote her entire rebuttal argument on a public forum is beyond the pale.

With her victory here, good Lord willing, Little Lord Tateleroy can assume his rightful place as Il Douche (that's pronounced "ill doo-sh") and let them sorry money-supplyin' bastids in DC know what's what.

And from a medical perspective, oh, shit, here we go again...

PS - didn't George Michael get popped in a shitter for trying to get popped in the shitter? Freedom's one thing, but that seems...ill-considered...and people doing ill-considered things, that brings us full circle to Lynn and Tate...

It’s really hard not to be a mean girl reading the comments. My kid’s football team got their clocks checked in Rankin Co. They were bigger, faster and way more Brandon.

The mandate will not survive. Biden is pushing this down , eventually to smaller businesses, which will be it’s death in red states. Only way to enforce is through martial law. Companies will not fire people, will not pay fines. Enough is enough. Rich business owners will finally tell Obiden where he can stick it.

Lynn joined a lawsuit filed by a dude from Utah in a Louisiana court.

This will
Be dismissed before Lynn figures out how to pro hac into the case.

Lynn is a stooge.

She should concentrate on suing her buff comm director / body guard / buttercup Nick for the 200k he stole from TANF funds….some of which was donated to Lynn so Nick could get a job! Get that….Nick stole money to donate to Lynn to get a job with Lynn.

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A recent audit shows a company with ties to a deputy director in the state attorney general’s office received nearly $169,000 in TANF money as part of the state’s largest embezzlement scheme in history.

Findings released recently by the Mississippi Department of Human Services show that nearly $69 million in federal dollars earmarked to help needy families was misspent, including millions that were steered toward companies on behalf of the agency’s former executive director.

TANF is Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, a program that is designed to provide benefits to children and their caregivers “who do not have enough income or resources to meet their everyday needs,” according to the DHS website.

One company called into question is NCC Ventures LLC, which was co-founded by Nicholas Coughlin, a deputy director in Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch’s office.

Coughlin has been working in the attorney general’s office since January 2020, the same month Fitch took office. Prior to that, he was a director for Butler Snow Advisory Services LLC, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Coughlin’s LinkedIn profile does not list his involvement with NCC Ventures.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required.
