Judge Jeffrey Brown of the US Court for the Southern District of Texas said the case was not about whether individuals should be vaccinated or even about federal power more broadly.
"whether the president can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment," Brown wrote.
"That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far."

This means no more using wallets, and no more buying tokens to purchase NFTs.
How will this move the price of Coinbase when the market opens today?
How will you respond to this news?"

Blinken warns any Russian 'invasion' of Ukraine would be met with a 'severe and a united response' following Lavrov meeting.

Macron winning the French election IMHO is close to zero. The only chance is if he can get Le Pen in the second round.
Another problem for Macron is that Brigitte Macron who becomes 69 this year is far from enthusiastic to be the first lady of France for another 5 years.
I would bet on Valérie Pécresse who has a proven track record, is intelligent, has more emotional intelligence than Macron, and normally should have the women vote in the second round. The only risk is that Macron and his team can find something in her past as they did with Fillon.
Come and see April 10 and April 24.

-- Treasury Secretary Yellen defended the Biden administration’s economic achievements and said that she hopes to see inflation closer to 2% by the end of 2022.

Lol ab!!! Must have missed your post about “exiting 3/4”. Oh wait, you didn’t post that! You funny man ab.

WORLD WAR III
During the whole week, Moscow has been waiting for an answer to its proposal for a Treaty guaranteeing peace. Washington has never mentioned it. On the contrary, it has accused Russia of preparing to attack Ukraine and of planning a false flag operation to justify it. Russia can no longer back down, but any action on its part risks opening a third world conflict.
