When Supreme Court Justices can lie this openly and brazenly about one of the most pivotal cases in modern times, America might be in a bit of trouble.
During open arguments on a critical case regarding Biden’s vaccine mandate, the liberal wing of the nation’s highest court espoused shameless untruths about Covid-19 and the mRNA shots marketed as “vaccines.”
Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the leading offender when it came to misinforming the public in a crude attempt to justify her preordained conclusion that the federal vaccine mandate should be enforced. As reported by Fox News, Sotomayor was objecting to several points made by Ohio Solicitor General Benjamin Flowers, who was arguing on behalf of GOP-led states opposing mandate.
The most glaringly false claim Sotomayor made is that the “vaccines” stop the spread of Covid-19 — and particularly, the Delta and Omicron variants.
“Many Supreme Court Justices have falsely stated today that the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine ‘prevents disease’ and transmission in the work place,” Katie Pavlich pointed out. “This is absolutely false and highly alarming they’re using that point as fact to make their decision.”
While many are refuting this false claim by pointing to statements by CDC Director Rochelle Walensky that the vaccines can no longer “prevent transmission” (in fact, they cannot, as Becker News reported earlier), it is even worse than that. Higher vaccination rates correlate with higher transmission rates, according to a Harvard-led study. So, the vaccines are useless when it comes to stopping the spread of Delta or Omicron. Don’t blame me. That’s what the data say.
Sotomayor doubled down on deception with an easily disprovable statement on child hospitalizations. It’s like the left-wing of the court is actively seeking to discredit America’s highest legal institution.

“We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators,” she claimed.
Phil Kerpen, who writes extensively on Covid issues, pointed out how this is egregiously wrong.
This is just absolutely astonishing. “100,000 children in serious condition,” per Sotomayor. Where do these people obtain their misinformation? The current national pediatric COVID census per HHS is 3,342. Many/most incidental.

“This is just absolutely astonishing,” Kerpen wrote. ‘100,000 children in serious condition,’ per Sotomayor. ‘Where do these people obtain their misinformation? The current national pediatric COVID census per HHS is 3,342. Many/most incidental.’”
Exactly. And you don’t have to take his word for it, Dr. Faustus Fauci recently revealed the sleight-of-hand trick that there is a difference between child hospitalizations with Covid and hospitalizations for Covid.
“But the other important thing is that if you look at the children who are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID,” Fauci said. “And what we mean by that — if a child goes in the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID. And they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual. When in fact, they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s over-counting the number of children who are, quote, ‘hospitalized with COVID,’ as opposed to because of COVID.”
So, that was a lie. Then Sotomayor claimed the Omnicron variant is just as deadly as the Delta variant. This is easily disproven. A state-by-state analysis shows Omicron is a fraction as deadly as the wild or Delta variants. Furthermore, Fauci admitted Omicron was substantially milder.
“Fauci cited a study from Ontario, Canada, that found the risk of hospitalization or death was 65% lower among people infected with omicron compared with individuals who caught delta. The risk of admission to an intensive care unit or death from omicron was 83% lower, according to the study,” CNBC reported.
A South African doctor who first discovered a patient with the Omicron variant attested that it was “mostly mild,” and that “nothing I have seen about this new variant warrants… extreme action.” Another doctor who appeared on CNN backed up this assessment and said it is “generally mild” and that “there are no red flags.”
There were more lies. Justice Stephen Breyer claimed “hospitals are full almost to the point of the maximum.” This was debunked in short order by Kerpen.
Breyer: “Growing by factors of 10 times what it was.”
National hospital census is actually flat as a pancake.

Kerpen also debunked Breyer’s claim of increasing hospitalizations.
It gets worse. Breyer actually suggested that mandatory vaccination could conceivably prevent 100% of US cases. Obviously, this is complete rubbish, for the reasons cited above.
Sotomayor also claimed that Covid-related deaths are at an all-time high. This is way, way off. Cases may have recently breaking an all-time high (due in part to the pointless, asymptomatic testing craze in blue states), but Covid-related deaths? Way down.
Not even close, Breyer. The doddering fool was so far off, he claimed there were “750 million new cases yesterday.” Umm, there are 330 million people in the United States.

There are 330 million people who live in America which means everyone apparently got covid twice in the last 24 hours. pic.twitter.com/rzMf8OzAlj

That is a Biden-worthy bit of absurd commentary. Of course, the cherry on top would be Sotomayor’s claim that the federal government can mandate vaccines using its “police power.” She apparently has never heard of informed consent, nor the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.
In addition to the liberal wing’s blatant misstatements is that they fail to note the least harmful remedy would be to recognize natural immunity from prior infection. New research shows that the Omicron variant has a transferability of natural immunity to other variants. Over 200 million Americans have a form of natural immunity from prior infection, according to CDC data.
Then again, the Covid pandemic response has never been about “the science,” just like the liberal wing of the Supreme Court’s rulings are not about Constitutional law. Since the left cannot justify their vaccine mandates based on the data or the science, they have to justify it with lies. That should tell Americans everything they need to know about the vaccine mandates being authoritarian and illegitimate, regardless of how the Supreme Court rules.
