Joe Biden and the Democrats were seeing red.
They thought they had this one in the bag.
But Ron DeSantis just crushed Joe Biden with this major win in court.
Joe Biden and the Democrats are trying to make Florida Governor Ron DeSantis the villain for the fact that Joe Biden’s mask mandates, fear mongering and mixed messaging failed to contain the coronavirus.
Biden claimed he could “crush” the virus, but cases are up 300 percent from this time last year despite there being no vaccine available in the fall of 2020.
With Biden’s approval dropping as Americans realized Biden’s claims of being able to shut down an airborne virus were ridiculous, Biden and his allies in the teachers’ unions began attacking a law Ron DeSantis signed banning schools from requiring masks.
Countries in Europe looked at the same COVID data and understood children were not significant vectors of spread and that masks harmed young students’ social development.
Schools in Britain, Ireland and other European countries opened for in-person learning with no mask requirement.
The law DeSantis signed allowing parents to opt their children out of any school mask mandate should not have been controversial.
Not to Joe Biden who falsely claimed Ron DeSantis was trying to kill kids.
“Worst of all, some state officials are passing laws or signing orders that forbid people from doing the right thing,” Biden ranted in a White House speech. “As of now, seven states not only banned mask mandates, but also banned them in their school districts, even for young children who cannot get vaccinated.
“I say to these governors: Please help,” Biden added. “But if you aren’t going to help, at least get out of the way.”
Some left-wing parents who picked up on Biden’s cue sued and Leon County Judge John Cooper ruled in their favor.
Biden and other Democrats cheered the result.
But Governor DeSantis predicted a win on appeal.
And a three-judge panel at the appellate court proved DeSantis correct and overruled Judge Cooper and allowed DeSantis’ law forbidding mask mandates to take effect.
“The stay should have been left in place pending appellate review. Accordingly, we grant the appellants’ motion, quash the trial court’s order vacating the automatic stay, and reinstate the stay required by Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.310(b),” the judges wrote.
DeSantis celebrated the win on social media.
“No surprise here — the 1st DCA has restored the right of parents to make the best decisions for their children. I will continue to fight for parents’ rights,” DeSantis posted to Twitter.
DeSantis later explained his confidence in winning at the appellate court came from the fact that Democrats cherry-pick where they file cases to find a friendly liberal judge.
That’s what happened in this case, and so DeSantis did not panic when the trial court issued a setback.
“What we found is, in trial courts in Tallahassee, state and federal, we typically lose if there’s a political component to it,” DeSantis stated. “But then in the appeals court we always win.”
If Donald Trump does not run for president in 2024, Governor DeSantis is the likely Republican nominee.
In that case DeSantis running against either Joe Biden or Kamala Harris would create a referendum on DeSantis’ science-based approach which kept the schools and the economy open compared to the Biden/Harris policy of fear mongering, mask mandates, lockdowns and illegal federal vaccine requirements.
That contrast terrifies Democrats which is why the Biden regime used the second half of 2021 to try and falsely claim DeSantis’ successful COVID policies were killing people and threatening students.
