Our national security would be better served by permanently halting the Biden vaccine mandates and supporting our service men and women.
A federal court in Ohio has now blocked the US Air Force from enforcing the military’s coronavirus vaccine mandate for two weeks.
The temporary restraining order means the military cannot punish airmen and Space Force guardians whose application for a religious exemption to one of the federally endorsed vaccines was denied or is still being processed.
Judge Matthew McFarland’s decision brings the case, Doster v. Kendall, closer to trial as a class-action lawsuit. He has criticized the Air Force for what he sees as a failure to carefully consider the merits of each exemption request and instead sweepingly reject them.
“Members face the same injury: violation of their constitutional freedom by defendants’ clear policy of discrimination against religious accommodation requests,” wrote McFarland, of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Ohio.
The ruling affects thousands’ status in the Air Force and the newest military branch, the Space Force.
This impacts 80 to 100 plaintiffs stationed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, who filed the lawsuit against top military leaders back in February, and now 9,000 to 10,000 service members nationally, according to the attorney for the local plaintiffs, Chris Wiest of northern Kentucky.
Biden’s Secretary of the Air Force was ordered to file a supplementary notice no later than July 21 and “no more than ten (10) pages in length identifying why this Court should not grant a class-wide preliminary injunction,” McFarland wrote.
The plaintiffs’ response, also limited to 10 pages, can be filed by July 25, 2022.
Wiest says it’s likely if there is a hearing it will be in Cincinnati. Or, the judge could decide the case in a written decision.
“We are pleased by the judge’s decision protecting the constitutional rights of service members who have dedicated their lives to protecting our constitutional rights,” Wiest tells FOX19 NOW.
“We will continue to litigate this case to its conclusion and look forward to continuing this battle with the federal government.”
As a reminder, even Dr. Anthony Fauci has admitted that vaccines do not work well in preventing infection.
In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday 13 July, Anthony Fauci [Top White House Advisor] admits that the vaccine does not “protect overly well” against Covid.
Fauci said: “One of the things we know for sure from looking at the data is that even though the vaccine, because of the high transmissibility of this virus, does not protect overly well against infection.”
In which Dr. Anthony Fauci admits vaccines "don't protect overly well against infection" and "didn't protect [him] against infection" yet also calls for a higher rate of vaccination because without it "we're giving the virus an opportunity to continue to spread in our community." pic.twitter.com/xRtVgOxupd

Bitterly clinging to the vaccine mandate in the name of public health is senseless, especially among healthy young adults. Given the plunging recruitment levels and the escalating chaos in the world, our national security would be better served by permanently halting the Biden vaccine mandates and supporting our service men and women.DONATE
