Federal Judge Overturns Texas Mask Mandate

Texas Governor Greg Abbott continues to struggle in the courts.

Judge Lee Yeakel rendered an unexpected opinion by blocking Abbott’s order to prevent schools from enforcing mask mandates against children.

Yeakel, a Bush appointee, ruled that not allowing masks would put at-risk children in danger.

But the Parents…

Common sense here says that if a child had a special condition that put them at risk, their parents would have the common sense to protect their child.

Yeakel did not see it that way, so now the decision has been taken out of the hands of parents.

Yeakel, in his decision, stated, “The spread of COVID-19 poses an even greater risk for children with special health needs.

“Children with certain underlying conditions who contract COVID-19 are more likely to experience severe acute biological effects and to require admission to a hospital and the hospital’s intensive-care unit.”

His decision will now turn the decision-making over to local officials rather than parents, a ruling that is not likely to sit very well with Texas parents.

Kym Davis Rogers, who represented Disability Rights Texas, celebrated the victory.

She stated, “No student should be forced to make the choice of forfeiting their education or risking their health, and now they won’t have to.”

This decision could have far-reaching implications in other red states, most notably Florida.

Governor Ron DeSantis has similar mandates in place, so we may seem them challenged under the same circumstances since there is now a precedent in place.

  1. I guess this is another evil paid off judge – they will find out when they are done using these judges – they will be done with them….sad – how many movies have you seen where someone was told what to do – and they did – they don’t keep these people around – I wish they would wake up – maybe they are being threatened by the evils.

    1. Don’t You Mean JESUS The CHRIST Our SAVIOUR ??? GOD Gave Up His Judgement The Very Moment JESUS Was CONCIEVED…ie THE NEW TESTIMENT…It’s Called JESUS’s 1000 Yr TRIALS n TRIBULATIONS !!!

  2. They are all corrupt! Benjamin Franklin said a unjust law is the same as no law at all. The constitution allows for freedom and these stupid judges who don’t adhere to it should be kicked off the bench

  3. This is insane. This should be up to the parent! This Covid thing now is just an excuse to keep us frightened so the government can gain more control and power!

  4. So in Houston we can have 50,000 people with no mask on packed in an arena to watch a concert. But our poor babies have to wear mask’ am I the only one that sees the hypocrisy????

    1. and DUST Masks do NOTHING to stop any virus, totally Insane that anyone would fall for that line of BS.

    2. I’m Ready To See TOOL In Concert in San Francisco…And One Must SHOW PROOF Of BOTH Vax And Wear a Mask Or Will Not Be Admitted !!! As For Me…I Rather Be Vaxed and Wear a Mask…People Are NOT INVINCIBLE !!!

  5. I will never understand these decisions. why is it that these judges cant rule that the decision is the parents and mask wearing is optional. if the masks work so well the ones wearing them should have nothing to fear. Why must everyone be forced against their will to comply with the fears of the few. Our liberties do not stop where someone else fear begins. if you want to wear a mask wear one but also provide the same privilege to those who dont want to wear one. Where has the America I once knew gone???

  6. what can you expect from a Bush appointed JUDGE, the Bushes are PRO NWO they are Criminals they want to destroy America just as bad as the DemonRats do.

    1. I May Be Mistaken…but…I Started DemonRATS Some 3 1/2 Yrs Ago…I’m Now Changing to DemonLIARS !!! Spread the Word…

  7. There are many Children who become ill, tied inside a mask all day long. Masks are only Sanitary for a limited time, & these Children are forced to wear a Bacteria Ridden rag approx. 8 hours a day.
    Allow the Parents to decide about their Child,he/she does NOT BELONG TO THE FED GOV.

  8. Children Breathing their own CO-2 all day that is PROVEN to cause oxygen deprivation and BRAIN DAMAGE will harm the children MORE that “herd immunity”. (and will hasten the “depopulation” that the “new world order” great reset agenda pushers are attempting.) The “bush dynasty” are just another part of the CORRUPT COMMUNIST CABAL “elites”, that run this country, and are also members of the “secret societies”, that CONTROL the central banks, and everything that goes on in this country and MOST of the world. Follow the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, it ALWAYS comes back to POWER, CONTROL, and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

  9. One More Anti-Constitution, Anti-Freedom, Corrupt Judge High on his own SELF APPOINTED POWER!
    probably on Soros payroll.

    1. We the people are going to be the only way to stop them. This government with all their parasites are reaching out way further than our constitution allows

  10. One thing these federal hacks forget, states have more power than the fed. It is in the Constitution. Federal power is grossly overreached. Time to take their supposed power and place it back where it constitutionally belongs, in the hands of the States. Most importantly, with the parents who should be raising their own children and making these decisions. No fed POS hack Obama appointed self-important communist has the authority to legislate from the Bench. NO JUDGE CAN LEGISLATE FROM THE BENCH!

  11. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE JOES ABILITY TO SCREW EVERYTHING UP !
    Joe is King Midas in reverse !
    Everything king Joe touches turns to caca !!! NEVER DEMOCRAT !!!!
    TRUMP 2024

  12. YES I AGREE NO CHILD NOR ADULT SHOULD BE FORCED TO WEAR A MASK. IT DRIES THE EYES PEOPLE WITH SEVERE ASTHMA EMPHAZEMA OR COPD WE CAN NOT BREATHE IN THEM STINKING MASKS. BESIDE S IT DRIES YOUR EYES DRY EYES CAUSES BLINDNESS AND WHEN YOU COUGH AND SNEEZE INSIDE THE MASK IF YOU ALREADY SICK OR IF NOT ALREADY THEREFORE THERE YOU GO YOU GET IT. AND IT DOES DEPRIVE YOUR OXGYGEN LEVELS EVEN DOES THIS FOR US ADULTS.IT OUGHT TO BE AGAINST TO LAW TO FORCE PEOPLE LIKE THIS. THIS IS HARRASMENT

  13. The choice of wearing or not wearing a mask should be up to the person, in the case of a child it should be up to the parents not the courts

  14. Things sure look sour when you can not trust Federal judges or the FBI. Democrats have totally screwed our nation up and it is time to run them off…they are all crooked.

  15. these comunist judges should be injected with covid, some of these judges are dum as rocks ,and should be dumped on roadside, making school kids to wear masks! masks dont solve nothing!

  16. What the judge says doesn’t matter to those entitled to Title VII Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is a law that protects against our rights. Covering ones face and hiding it from God is a sin to our religion. This is a federal law so it is above state law. Read up on it.

  17. If a child is special needs, and you truly feel wearing a face diaper is going to keep cooties away, you have been misinformed. Your child & family are still exposed from their clothes, skin, hair, bed, car seat, food, etc. Covid is airborne; everything around is poisoned. The only way to cope is to pray God will intercede. We’re blessed with natural immunity, Ivermectin, and a few other medications not contaminated with aborted babies. Might as well put yourself in a chem suit or a plastic bubble, enter your home from garage, strip down and walk through with Lysol shower before entering your home.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
