Biden administration blinked; the OSHA rule for private companies with more than 100 employees allows for weekly testing with face covering in lieu of vaccination. Another example of bluffing to force people to be vaccinated

I must again ask, ‘ What is in those vaccines???’  Why do governments want immune people vaccinated?  In the UK, vaccinated people over 40 are now twice as likely to get Covid as the unvaccinated.  The vaccines work very briefly, but the harm they do is grossly in excess of the benefit.  What is this project really about?

“According to OSHA, the ETS requires companies to “develop, implement, and enforce a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.” But—and this is a big but—there is a pretty clear way around this. The affected companies can forgo a vaccine mandate policy if they “instead establish, implement, and enforce a policy allowing employees to elect either to get vaccinated or to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering at the workplace.”’

…And while OSHA claimed in the rule that it “may well have the authority to impose a vaccination mandate” itself, the agency said it instead decided against “pursuing [a] strict vaccination requirement” in favor of a rule that would “strongly encourage” vaccines. “OSHA’s traditional practice when including medical procedures, such as medical surveillance testing and vaccinations, in its health standards has been to require the employer to make the medical procedure available to employees, and has viewed mandating those procedures as a measure to avoid if possible,” the agency explained.

The rule does not apply to workers who telecommute or otherwise don’t work around other people, where there is no risk of workplace transmission, as well as workers who work entirely outdoors, where the transmission risk is dramatically lower. Companies with fewer than 100 workers are also exempt, OSHA said, because they are less able to shoulder the administrative burden relative to the public health benefits. The OSHA rule also works in concert with existing bona fide vaccine mandates issued by the Biden administration: It recently issued vaccine mandates for federal employees, for workers at companies with government contracts, and for the entire U.S.

…So why doesn’t the Biden administration just call it a testing mandate or something like that? The White House’s use of the phrase “vaccine requirement” suggests that it’s trying not to use the phrase “vaccine mandate,” while also trying not to say, “It’s not a vaccine mandate.” Perhaps the most likely answer is that the administration wants Americans to think there’s a massive federal vaccine mandate without actually risking the legal or political consequences of imposing one. It’s more practical—and perhaps more quintessentially American—for the government to outsource a coercive policy goal to the private sector instead of doing something itself.

the OSHA rule also supersedes state and local bans on vaccine and mask mandates in Republican-led parts of the country. If the courts allow it to take effect, the rule may yet prompt enough companies and enough workers to get the shot to help end the pandemic for good. Just don’t call it a vaccine mandate.”

Yes and no. My take is this is the government's legal slimeballs thinking they're being clever. If (when!) this mandate is challenged in the courts as executive branch over-reach, their defense now has the slippery out, "oh but you see, this is not a mandate after all, employers/employees have a choice…" Meanwhile, in practice, the terms of not complying with injections are onerous and unreasonable. This absolutely is a mandate.

On Wednesday, the NIH sent a letter to members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce that acknowledged two facts. One was that EcoHealth Alliance, a New York City–based nonprofit that partners with far-flung laboratories to research and prevent the outbreak of emerging diseases, 'did indeed enhance a bat coronavirus to become potentially more infectious to humans', which the NIH letter described as an “unexpected result” of the research it funded that was carried out in partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 'The second was that EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms of its grant conditions stipulating that it had to report if its research increased the viral growth of a pathogen by tenfold.'

In New York City, Mt.Sinai hospitals (the second largest private hospital chain in NYC, I believe) recently started encouraging vaccines for children age 5 to 11 years. They are sending e-mails to all current and former patients, and the e-mail links to this article for "more information". Meryl, you may want to check this out:

I am not a lawyer, but I wonder if mandatory testing of people who are not sick constitutes a form of illegal search and seizure? Without symptoms, there is no probable cause.
