Another win against Biden’s dictatorial COVID-19 jab mandates!
After Monday’s victory in Missouri, the state of Kentucky kept the train rolling.
Today’s court hearing came from the United States District Court Eastern District of Kentucky Central Division.
Earlier this month, Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron and several other states sued to block Biden’s COVID-19 jab mandate on federal contractors and subcontractors.
U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove stated Biden didn’t have the authority to impose mandatory vaccination on these employees and issued a preliminary injunction on the mandate.
The federal judge’s injunction applies to the states of Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.

The Lexington Herald Leader noted:
“This is not a case about whether vaccines are effective. They are,” Van Tatenhove wrote. “Nor is this a case about whether the government, at some level, and in some circumstances, can require citizens to obtain vaccines. It can.”
He said that the question before him was a narrow one: whether or not Biden had the authority to impose vaccines on the employees of federal contractors and subcontractors.
“In all likelihood, the answer to that question is no,” Van Tatenhove wrote.
The scope of the injunction applies to Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee, per the order.
The mandate — which, along with one for employers of over 100 people and certain healthcare workers, has been challenged in several states — is set to take effect on Jan. 4.
