There is now officially a winner in the feud between Joe Biden and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
It wasn’t who anyone in the corporate-controlled media would have predicted.
And that’s because Ron DeSantis spoke one truth that destroyed Joe Biden in court.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis staked his political reputation on being the politician willing to lead the fight against Joe Biden’s COVID insanity.
No politicians in America questioned the effectiveness, morality, and legality of mask mandates and vaccine passports more loudly than Governor DeSantis.
And on Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle handed DeSantis – and all Americans – a massive victory when she struck down Joe Biden’s mask mandate for public transportation, ruling that the Centers for Disease Control lacked the statutory authority to force travelers to wear masks.
“It is indisputable that the public has a strong interest in combating the spread of Covid-19,” Judge Mizelle ruling read. “In pursuit of that end, the CDC issued the mask mandate. But the mandate exceeded the CDC statutory authority, improperly invoked the good cause exception to notice and comment rulemaking, and failed to adequately explain its decisions. Because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in the pursuit of desirable ends, the court declares unlawful and vacates the mask mandate.”
Governor DeSantis praised the ruling on social media.
“Great to see a federal judge in Florida follow the law and reject the Biden transportation mask mandate,” DeSantis wrote on Twitter following the decision. “Both airline employees and passengers deserve to have this misery end.”
When the Biden administration first announced it would extend the public transportation mask mandate for two more weeks until May 3, Governor DeSantis blasted the decision as not grounded in any science, but was instead “COVID theater.”
“Biden’s extension of the transportation mask mandate simply prolongs the misery that passengers and flight attendants are being forced to endure. This is not evidence based, but simply more COVID theater,” Governor DeSantis declared.
Judge Mizelle’s ruling did not touch upon the effectiveness of wearing masks on planes.
But within hours of Judge Mizelle’s ruling every single airline announced masks were now optional on flights.
Even Amtrak – which Joe Biden bragged for years about how he took Amtrak trains home to Delaware every day as a Senator – turned on Biden and ended their mask mandate.
And the swiftness with which airlines and Amtrak dropped the mask mandate meant executives at those companies understood that masks were really just “COVID theater.”
