Joe Biden apparently wants to see how low his approval ratings can go.
That’s the only explanation for why his administration is jumping on grenades.
Now Biden is doubling down on one insane policy that was blocked by a Trump-appointed judge.
U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle struck down the mask mandate issued by the CDC regarding public transit.
The ruling came as a relief to Americans who were sick and tired of the COVID theater, and it appeared as though the Biden administration would take the easy victory and allow Judge Mizelle’s decision to stand.
Then the hysterical Democrats of blue-checkmark Twitter threw a fit, and suddenly the Biden administration reversed course.
Biden’s Department of Justice wrote in a statement:
“The Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) disagree with the district court’s decision and will appeal, subject to CDC’s conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health. The Department continues to believe that the order requiring masking in the transportation corridor is a valid exercise of the authority Congress has given CDC to protect the public health. That is an important authority the Department will continue to work to preserve . . . On April 13, 2022, before the district court’s decision, CDC explained that the order would remain in effect while it assessed current public health conditions, and that the Transportation Security Administration would extend its directive implementing the order until May 3 to facilitate CDC’s assessment.”
The CDC followed up that announcement by officially asking the DOJ to appeal the ruling on Wednesday night.
“[A]t this time an order requiring masking in the indoor transportation corridor remains necessary for the public health,” the CDC said in a statement. “CDC believes this is a lawful order, well within CDC’s legal authority to protect public health.”
The announcement left many observers scratching their heads.
COVID panic is a political loser – only the most deranged people are freaking out about mandatory masking.
Even CNN medical expert Dr. Leana Wen said that cloth masks were nothing more than “facial decorations.”
Research on masks shows that N95 masks can offer a small amount of protection, but they must be worn properly at all times, and they’re very uncomfortable for long durations.
Some people even experience breathing difficulties as a result of the tight masks.
Masks on airplanes are particularly irrational because the HEPA filters circulate clean air throughout the cabin.
But the COVID regime does not want to relinquish power even though the majority of Americans are done with the constant dread about the virus – and that frightens statists the most.
