Justice Thomas Rejects Appeal to Federal Mask Mandate

In a bit of a surprise ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas has refused to hear an appeal on the federal mask mandate.

The case was brought by Lucas Wall, who maintains he cannot travel now due to the mandate.

He claims to have an anxiety disorder that prevents him from wearing a mask.

Case Dismissed

Thomas, who oversees appeals in the state of Florida, rejected the case without an explanation.

Wall, who was a frequent traveler, was obviously disappointed in the ruling.

He stated, “Of course it’s still disappointing Justice Thomas did not take a more in-depth look at the illegal and unconstitutional mask requirement.”

The decision by Thomas was a bit of a surprise for two reasons…

First, the Court has seemed receptive to lifting pandemic restrictions that have been in place.

Second, the anti-mask movement has been mostly a conservative movement, of which Thomas is a staunch supporter.

This decision will more than likely dampen hopes that a piece of legislation introduced by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) will be passed.

Paul put forth a bill that would block federal agencies from imposing “any federal requirement related to COVID-19 that an individual wear a face mask when utilizing any conveyance…or transportation hub.”

On the new legislation, Senator Paul stated, “The federal government forcing the American people to continue to wear masks despite the fact that we’ve already reached herd immunity is ridiculous and needs to end immediately.

“I am introducing the Travel Mask Mandate Repeal Act of 2021 to put a stop to this nanny state mandate of requiring masks on public transportation.”

With the rejection by Thomas on this front, we are more than likely stuck with masks on public travel until Biden sees fit to remove the mandate.

  1. Since masks are not affective in preventing the spread of any virus no mask mandate or even recommendation is required. All wearing masks does is line the pockets of mask manufacturers and sellers. I woukd guess that many in government are lining their pockets with the profits of mask sales and must be held accountable!

  2. This whole COVID thing was to just keep people from voting for Trump and letting the Dems cheat. The masks are for total control. They aren’t healthy and are causing lots of sicknesses. Let people decide if they want to wear a mask or not. Same with the vaccine. Government taking too much control. What country are we living in??????

  3. Justice Thomas. What happened to you? Are you selling your soul to the left? When a nation imposes regulations like wearing masks or vaccination, that makes it mandatory, means we are going straight to what communism is all about. MANDATORY.

  4. If the Judiciary Branch looses the support of the electorate then Anarchy will follow. It is sad that the highest court in the land side steps issues important to interstate and intrastate commerce. It appears the Justices live in a bubble in a pretend world. It appears they don’t like their jobs and refuse to do the very thing they were appointed for. Impeachment of Justices can happen and maybe should Chief Justice Roberts especially disappointing. They need to rotate the Chief Justice position there shouldn’t be just one who controls everything all the time. Too bad so sad.

  5. The Supreme Court is in danger. Should be reviewed and put back in to track of what their duties are.

  6. Mask = A symbol of submission and concession to a tyrannical government! Kneel to their demands and power or be crushed! Time for a revolution and an armed one!

  7. May be we should go back to the horse and buggy Days.

    Our world would be in a better place.

    Stop traveling we may have to change our life style.

    Government is out of bounds and have become to controlling. We could be in control of ourselves.

    What do you say?

    1. If we did, that would certainly boost the economy for local business and harm the “global” businesses. Might even be a great plan, although vacation industry would suffer, As a person who enjoys foreign travel, I would miss my vacations, but on the other hand, I could stay home comfortably and save a whole lot of money. Inconvenient, yes, but doable. I’d just miss my family, who couldn’t come visit me, nor I them. However, if this resulted in a trimmed down federal government – back to what it was intended to be, then I’d be OK with it. Of course since I’m elderly, I’d need to hire someone to take care of the horse and buggy and make sure it was hitched up when I wanted to go to town.

    1. Perhaps he’s beginning to suffer from the same mental disease as the White House “squatter!” He sure seems to have switched sides quite often lately. 🙁

    1. Love “controlus virus” grinnie! I’m going to have to plagarize it!! 🙂

  8. idk, but there seems to be a significant portion of the issue that was “appealed” missing from this story. On one hand the plaintiff says he has an anxiety disorder that is exaserbated when wearing the mask. Then the same man goes on to say he’s disappointed the justice didn’t go further into the constitutionality of mask mandates. If the appeal was filed on a specific constitutional issue, but then proceeded to use the “disability” of anxiety, then by all means Justice Thomas will deny the appeal. From what I see, the justices need very specific windows through which to peer as to how they can rule. If there are too many angles, the appeal will be denied without explanation.
    I would guess it is the latter that happened.
    Senator Paul’s bill will be in a better seat in which to get the supremes to hear the case. Perhaps that is also one reason for the gentleman’s denial, so there wouldn’t be any precedent. I highly doubt the justice is “unaware” of the legislation being submitted.

  9. What I see is that we have fools that think they have power and swore an oathe to a constitution they dont know anto God that they hate to a country they dont want

    1. The problem is that we have God on our side with history to remind us a constitution that gives us us the power and even though God + 1 is an unbeatable army. We outnumber them 3 to one

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Democrats’ open border agenda has fueled a rise in deaths from fentanyl, and now cartels are using “rainbow fentanyl” to target kids.

@jimmykimmel mocked me for saying moms are concerned about it ahead of Halloween.

Is he going to criticize Schumer now?

The DEA warns that Mexican cartels are “killing Americans with fentanyl at catastrophic and record rates like we’ve never seen before.”

Every community has been effected, and people have been killed as young as four months old and as old as 81 years old.
