Biden plans to mandate mask-wearing on airplanes - again

Published in Blog on June 01, 2022 by Jakob Fay

Earlier this year, a federal judge declared the long-standing and highly contentious mask mandate on public transportation to be unlawful, but now, President Joe Biden is working to reimpose a federal mandate for air travel.

The overturning of the original mandate was met with widespread exultation, as videos surfaced of passengers cheering and celebrating their maskless flights.

In my personal experience, I have noticed how few people have worn masks on each flight I have been on since masking became optional, and also how the overall atmosphere at airports has become less tense, all of which raises a serious question:

If huge amounts, potentially even vast majorities, of Americans are fine with going maskless into airports, then who exactly is the federal government doing this for?

It would be one thing if Americans chose to wear masks. It is another thing altogether for the government to make that choice top-down.

More often than not, it seems the prolonging of these mandates has been an experiment to test the American people’s willingness to comply, especially considering the questionable efficacy of mask mandates.

According to a report in the reputable New England Journal of Medicine, “wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection."

They added, "In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

The University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy admitted that “the data supporting the effectiveness of a cloth mask or face covering are very limited.”

Additionally, The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Arizona compiled a list of over 150 studies on the topic of mask effectiveness - or lack thereof - and ultimately concluded that the “evidence has been stable and clear that masks do not work to control the virus and they can be harmful and especially to children.”

But even publications that tout the wearing of masks, including, for example, the New York Times, have admitted that mask mandates “have not done much to reduce Covid caseloads over the past two years,” noting that Covid has spread at similar rates in cities both prone and resistant to masking.

In the opinion of one epidemiologist, quoted by the Times, “It is simultaneously true that masks work and mask mandates do not work.”

Considering the conflicting reports on the topic, it makes sense that many Americans would choose, willingly, to wear masks. But it also makes sense that just as many would choose not to.

Both are acceptable choices if made voluntarily, not forced or coerced.

Thankfully, the public debate over masking seems to have, for the most part, subsided. But by reimposing a mask mandate, Biden would not only reignite that controversy but also chip away at the American people’s ability to be self-governing.

The past two years have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the federal government has too much power. Just because the Covid-19 pandemic seems, at long last, to finally be losing its sway on the American public, does not mean that the federal government will not attempt to brandish that power again.

If anything, our largely weak-kneed response to the encroachment on our individual liberties served to encourage the federal government to do and take more. Regardless of whether or not Biden successfully implements a new mask mandate, he is still much too drunk on power for comfort.

This is where Convention of States comes into play.

Washington, D.C., is unable to rein in the Biden administration. More often than not, the entirety of the federal government is complicit in the White House’s crooked power grab.

If the government is unwilling to control itself, then our solution is not to send merely "better" politicians into a corrupt system, but to fix the system. Fortunately, our Founders gave the states the power to call a Convention of States for this very purpose.

Now is the time to use the Constitution to save the liberties guaranteed to us by our Constitution. By limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, imposing fiscal restraints and placing term limits on federal officials, all of which we can do with an Article V Convention of States, we can drain Biden and his power-hungry cohorts of their undue power, once and for all.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
