Verfassungsgerichtschef: „Eine Beschränkung von Freiheitsrechten kann legitim sein“

(15.09.2022)

Politiker wie Scholz und Richter wie Harbarth sind Brandstifter. Sie schaffen mit ihren Aussagen die Atmosphäre, in der Menschen mit anderer Meinung quasi „vogelfrei“ sind. In der sie diffamiert werden und entmenschlicht. In denen Banken ihnen Konten kündigen, die Polizei sie schikaniert und Attacken auf sie demonstrativ nicht verfolgt. Eine Atmosphäre, in der genau das wieder beginnt, was eigentlich nie wieder geschehen sollte.

Leider erkennen diesen schleichenden Prozess viele, die immer nur Freiheit und Demokratie erlebt haben und sich ausschließlich aus den großen Medien informieren, immer noch nicht.

Grundrechte ohne Schutz – Der Beschluss des Bundesverfassungsgerichts zur einrichtungs- und unternehmensbezogenen Nachweispflicht

(26.05.2022)

Der Beschluss vom 27.04.2022 stellt nach den beiden Beschlüssen zur Bundesnotbremse einen weiteren Tiefpunkt in der Geschichte des höchsten deutschen Gerichts dar. Wenn man das Ergebnis und seine Begründung analysiert, muss man sich fragen, ob damit ein Punkt erreicht ist, an dem es nicht vernünftiger wäre, bis auf weiteres jede Hoffnung, dass Karlsruhe in der Corona-Krise die Grundrechte der Bürger und die liberale Demokratie gegen einen übergriffigen Staat verteidigen könnte, aufzugeben.

Präsident Biden: Corona-Pandemie ist vorbei

„Wie Sie sehen, trägt hier niemand eine Maske. Alle scheinen in ziemlich guter Verfassung zu sein. Ich glaube also, dass sich die Situation ändert, und ich denke, dies ist ein perfektes Beispiel dafür“, sagte der US-Präsident weiter.

Bidens Äußerungen könnten innerhalb seiner eigenen Regierung für einigen Wirbel sorgen.

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES: NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS, ET AL., APPLICANTS 21A244 v. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION, ET AL

(13.01.2022)

Administrative agencies are creatures of statute. They accordingly possess only the authority that Congress has provided. The Secretary has ordered 84 million Americans to either obtain a COVID–19 vaccine or undergo weekly medical testing at their own expense. This is no “everyday exercise of federal power.” In re MCP No. 165, 20 F. 4th, at 272 (Sutton, C. J., dissenting). It is instead a significant encroachment into the lives—and health—of a vast number of employees. “We expect Congress to speak clearly when authorizing an agency to exercise powers of vast economic and political significance.” Alabama Assn. of Realtors v. Department of Health and Human Servs., 594
U. S. ___, ___ (2021) (per curiam) (slip op., at 6) (internal
quotation marks omitted). There can be little doubt that
OSHA’s mandate qualifies as an exercise of such authority.
The question, then, is whether the Act plainly authorizes
the Secretary’s mandate. It does not. The Act empowers
the Secretary to set workplace safety standards, not broad public health measures.

(…)

The Solicitor General does not dispute that OSHA is lim-
ited to regulating “work-related dangers.” Response Brief
for OSHA in No. 21A244 etc., p. 45 (OSHA Response). She
instead argues that the risk of contracting COVID–19 qual-
ifies as such a danger. We cannot agree. Although COVID–
19 is a risk that occurs in many workplaces, it is not an occupational hazard in most. COVID–19 can and does spread at home, in schools, during sporting events, and everywhere else that people gather. That kind of universal risk is no different from the day-to-day dangers that all face from
crime, air pollution, or any number of communicable diseases. Permitting OSHA to regulate the hazards of daily life—simply because most Americans have jobs and face those same risks while on the clock—would significantly expand OSHA’s regulatory authority without clear congressional authorization.

US supreme court blocks Biden’s workplace vaccine-or-test rules

(13.01.2022)

The court’s conservative majority concluded the administration overstepped its authority by seeking to impose the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (Osha) vaccine-or-test rule on US businesses with at least 100 employees. More than 80 million people would have been affected.

“Osha has never before imposed such a mandate. Nor has Congress. Indeed, although Congress has enacted significant legislation addressing the Covid-19 pandemic, it has declined to enact any measure similar to what Osha has promulgated here,” the conservatives wrote in an unsigned opinion.

In dissent, the court’s three liberals argued that it was the court that was overreaching by substituting its judgment for that of health experts.

President Joe Biden: The 2022 60 Minutes Interview

Scott Pelley: Mr. President, first Detroit Auto Show in three years. Is the pandemic over?

President Joe Biden: The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s– but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.

The car show was a reminder that gasoline prices hit a historic high last June—in part because Russia cut fuel supplies in its war on Ukraine.

Biden: ‘The pandemic is over’

“The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. It’s – but the pandemic is over,” Biden said.

The US government still designates Covid-19 a Public Health Emergency and the World Health Organization says it remains a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. But the President’s comments follow other hopeful comments from global health leaders.
