As President Joe Biden is attempting to implement an authoritarian rule, former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb believes that the vaccine mandate policy would not go into effect until the fall of 2022.
He appeared on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Frida and explained that the process to issue the guidelines and handling challenges in court means that the mandate is “probably something for the fall of 2022 work season.”
“I think that the other measures that they took, certainly the issues with … the mandates related to the federal workforce and even the mandates on health care workers probably fall more squarely in the purview of what the federal government can do,” Gottlieb said. “I think the controversial part of this, and the part that’s going to get challenged, is the mandate on businesses with 100 or more employees. So, let’s unpack that. They have to go through a rule-making process. OSHA has to issue a rule. Even if they don’t direct a final rule, assuming OSHA hasn’t started doing that yet, and I suspect they haven’t. The White House probably announced this ahead of any rulemaking because they wouldn’t have wanted it to leak. That’s going to be a weeks-long process, and perhaps a month-long process or longer.”
He continued, “It’s probably going get challenged in court. End even if you’re able to implement the rule, they’re going to have to issue guidance on how businesses implement that and give some kind of grace period to get that into effect,” he added. “So, best case, as a practical measure, this is probably going to be a tool or policy that affects the fall of 2022 — certainly not going to be implemented in time for this Delta wave. By the summertime, I believe prevalence is going to decline, so we’re not really going to be reaching for a mandate. So, this is probably something for the fall of 2022 work season.”
He also predicted that the mandate won't get the country over a 90% vaccination rate. Which I would agree with, considering there are 80 million people who have chosen not to get it. Trying to force us to get it will only make us angry, not compliant.

Sen. Cruz: 'Pelosi is Drunk on Power' - Probably Vodka Too
On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Great men are almost exclusively bad men, even where they exercise influence and not authority,” Cruz said, pulling from a series of letters to Bishop Craig from Lord Acton. He added that “those words were true in 1887, and they’re true today.”
