Lord, we pray for godly wisdom for the leaders in America. We pray for no more vaccine mandates and successful challenges to the ones that have been proposed.

Several trucking and retail trade associations are suing the Biden administration in the hopes of overturning its federal vaccine mandate, the New York Post reported on Thursday.

The groups, “which include the National Retail Federation, the National Federation of Independent Business and the American Trucking Associations,” filed the order against the Occupation Safety and Health Administration [OSHA] in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, saying the order would “inflict irreparable harm.”

According to the court filing:

This is not a case about the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, which are a marvel of modern medicine. … This is a case about American businesses that do not want to face the immediate irreparable harm of losing employees, incurring substantial and unrecoverable compliance costs, and worsening already fragile supply chains and labor markets.

The new rule, which requires business with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccination against COVID-19 or weekly testing for all employees by January 4, comes as the trucking and retail industries face severe labor shortages. At least 95 trade groups representing the trucking industry sent a letter to the Biden administration in early November, warning the president that the vaccine mandate could terminate 37 percent of drivers during the supply chain crisis. The industry is already short 80,000 drivers.

In a statement on Tuesday, National Retail Federation President Matthew Shay said the rule’s previous December deadline and the new January deadline “are both unworkable and virtually impossible,” according to the report.

“We have consistently and repeatedly communicated our concerns about the practical challenges of meeting those arbitrary targets,” Shay said. “However, it appears that our only remaining course of action is to petition for judicial relief.”

Several other groups joined the lawsuit, including the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, the International Warehouse and Logistics Association, the International Foodservices Distributors Association and National Association of Convenience Stores. . . .

Biden’s vaccine mandate is facing numerous legal challenges — “the Republican National Committee and the Republican attorneys general in at least 26 states have so far sued to block the rule.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Court issued a temporary stay on November 6, blocking the mandate while considering a permanent injunction.

Glad to hear that this lawsuit has been filed. Biden has absolutely NO common sense. He allows himself to be controlled by the Globalist Elite, who are not interested in individual rights, but, rather, controlling people’s lives. This is the last thing that he needs to be doing to the people who are filing this suit. Biden and his cronies in the White House are making every effort to control people’s lives. They could care less how it is destroying America. Lord, please grant favor to these groups that have filed this lawsuit. You alone are in control of this fiasco that our nation has become. may Your will be done. In Jesus’ name.
