While on Board Air Force One, Jen Psaki Lashes Out at Airlines No Longer Enforcing Mask Mandates

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lashed out at a Florida court striking down the Biden administration’s lawless, unscientific mask mandate from the comfort of Air Force One on Tuesday. Watch:

“Well, I would note — well, I’ve seen those videos. Anecdotes are not data, right?” she replied. “And certainly, that does tell a part of the story. But we don’t make these decisions based on politics or based on the political whims on a plane or even in a poll. But I would note in polls, and data, lengthier data, there are still a lot of people in this country who still want to have masks in place.”

Psaki was also asked if the Biden administration intends to appeal the federal court’s ruling.

“On the mask mandate, why is the DoJ not appealing that?” a reporter asked. “And… does the administration risk taking away some of your options for the future, especially if there’s some new variants?” he continued.

“Well, unless something’s happened when we got on the plane, I don’t think they’ve made any announcement at this point in time,” she responded. “So, as we’ve said, agencies are reviewing step — next steps — including the Department of Justice, traditionally following court decision. That can take a couple of days.”

“We have said from the start that our Covid response should be guided by the science and data and by experts,” she added. “And — and just as a reminder, when we made this announcement, the CDC said it needed 15 days to assess the impacts of an uptick in cases on hospitalizations, deaths, and hospital capacity.”

“We feel — still feel — that is entirely reasonable based on the latest science,” she continued. “And public health decisions shouldn’t be made by the courts. They should be made by public health experts. So again, I can’t — I’m not going to get ahead of the Department of Justice. We’ll let them make any decisions or announcements, but —”

“So, they might still appeal is what you’re saying?” a reporter followed up.

“It typically — yeah, it typically takes a couple of days to review and make an assessment,” she said.

The Biden administration on Monday released a statement in response to a federal court in Florida striking down the national mask mandate for airlines and other public transportation.

“The agencies are reviewing the decision and assessing potential next steps. In the meantime, today’s court decision means CDC’s public transportation masking order is not in effect at this time. Therefore, TSA will not enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs at this time. CDC recommends that people continue to wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.”

As reported earlier, a federal judge in Florida voided the national mask mandate covering airports, planes and other public travel. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention failed to justify its decision and did not follow proper rulemaking.

The judge’s conclusion that the CDC’s mandate exceeded the agency’s authority. The Tampa court’s ruling can be read in full below:

United Airlines responded to the news by dropping the mask mandate immediately.

“Effective immediately, masks are no longer required at United on domestic flights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country’s mask requirements) or at U.S. airports,” UA said in a statement.

Delta Airlines announced it was no longer enforcing masks, which passengers aboard a flight applauded.

Alaska Airline dropped its mask mandate, which the passengers greeted with enthusiasm.

Allegiant Air’s announcement got a similar reaction.

There is no significant evidence that mask mandates for the general public have led to a decline in case rates around the world. This was the case prior to Covid-19 and remains the case today. That is what the actual “science” says.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is nonetheless upset that a Biden administration policy it had no authority to “mandate” was overturned by a federal court. But public health officials are not elected officials and do not have the power to rule Americans’ lives by unconstitutional decree.

This is why the executive branch, whether at the state or at the federal level, is forbidden from issuing decrees in the United States. They are illegal, and therefore, unenforceable. The U.S. Constitution grants law-making powers to the legislative branch, and thus, the solution to avoid such legal disputes in the future is to pass actual laws and not unconstitutional “mandates.”

Tragic accident. Parents take their children for a walk along the reservoir on the French coast. Then an unusually high wave rushes in and wipes out half the family.

A wave killed their couple և their teenage daughter off the coast of Brittany, France.

The couple’s three children survived the tragedy in Plogoff, France Info reported, citing the prefecture. About 100 rescuers searched for the injured. The family was walking on a public mound near the rocky promontory of Pointe du Raz when they were probably caught in an unusually high tide.

However, the weather was not particularly problematic, as there is always a danger from the sea, as stated by the prefecture. According to the testimonies of witnesses, the preliminary investigation should find out how the accident could have happened. It is mentioned that the family is from the region.
