Eric Schmitt on Vaccine Mandates: Biden ‘doesn’t respect the rule of law’

Eric Schmitt on Vaccine Mandates: Biden ‘doesn’t respect the rule of law’

Joins ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ to discuss SCOTUS decision on vaccine mandate, the Biden Administration’s lawlessness, and what’s at stake in the Missouri Senate Race

ST. LOUIS, MO –  Missouri Attorney General and US Senate candidate Eric Schmitt this week joined Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ to discuss last week’s historic win at the Supreme Court against the private employer federal vaccine mandate, how the fight continues against government overreach, and what’s at stake in the 2022 Missouri Senate race. Read highlights of AG’s Schmitt’s interview below.

On the win against vaccine mandates for hardworking Americans at the Supreme Court, AG Schmitt said: 

“It is a big win. It’s a big win for workers. It’s big win for the Constitution. It’s a big win for rule of law and individual freedom. People should be able to make these decisions themselves without being fired. OSHA was created to make sure forklifts beep when they back up, not force the medical procedure on eighty plus million Americans. That’s a big win. I also think it stands for a much larger proposition that these agencies — we cannot let them run wild here. You can’t try to fit an elephant and a mouse hole as one of the justices said. We can’t cede this much authority to the federal government. America has been the freest country in the history of the world. We believe in individual rights. We believe that when we spread out the power among the branches, we protect individual freedom. For those reasons, I think it’s a big win last week in the courts.”

On the Biden Administration’s lawlessness, AG Schmitt said: 

It should come as no surprise, which is why AG’s like me and others across the country, have fought so hard to protect people’s individual rights from a president that first wants to bulldoze the separation of powers and doesn’t respect the rule of law. By the way, this is the same administration that sicking the FBI on parents who are showing up to school board meetings in this country. This is about power and control, it always has been. It’s not about data or science, it’s about power and control, command and control. The left wants to make sure that they have an administrative state that issues these edicts and people have to follow. But thankfully, we live in the country where the rule of law still matters. A system of federalism where the states created the federal government, to be a government of limited powers. We’re going to continue to fight back and push back against this president who doesn’t respect the rule of law.

On what’s at stake in the 2022 Missouri Senate race, AG Schmitt said:

“Look, it’s a 50/50 Senate — there’s a lot at stake here. I think, the future of the Senate, if we’re going to have a majority, runs right through the Show Me State. You look and see what’s happening in Washington D.C. right now, Maria. You’ve got the Democrats, who control all the levers of power, who want to federalize our elections, add states to the union, pack the Supreme Court – we need proven conservative fighters that are going to go up there and stand for the rule of law. There’s a couple candidates in the race, quite frankly, that would take it from a top ten to a top five race. We cannot lose the seat. We need folks who are going to fight. That’s been my record – I’ve stood by President Trump and the America First agenda. I’ve taken a blowtorch to the Biden agenda and we are winning. We need reinforcements right now in Washington D.C. to save America. I’m very grateful for the support. We’ve gotten record fundraising support from Missourians. We are going to continue to fight back, and again, take that same fighting spirit to the United States Senate.”

Eric Schmitt is the proven leader we need to stand against Washington’s endless cradle-to-grave expansion of the federal government and rally support for a better alternative — one that empowers people, not politicians. We are excited to throw the full weight of our grassroots army behind Eric Schmitt now through Election Day.”

ST. LOUIS – President Donald J. Trump’s top law enforcement official endorsed Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt for the United States Senate.  

Former Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said Attorney General Schmitt is the one candidate who can be counted on to defend the rule of law, support law enforcement and fight for Missouri’s conservative values.

“In President Trump’s Justice Department, we knew we could count on Eric Schmitt to support law and order, law enforcement and the rule of law,” said Matthew Whitaker who served as Acting Attorney General of the United States. “As a top law enforcement official in the Trump administration, I saw firsthand his commitment to keeping Missourians safe by taking action to fight violent crime, backing our police with resources and support, and establishing unprecedented cooperation between law enforcement agencies to protect and serve our communities.  Eric Schmitt has my full support in his campaign for U.S. Senate and I encourage Missourians to send him there to represent law and order and conservative values.”

As Missouri’s Attorney General, Eric Schmitt worked closely with Missouri’s U.S. Attorneys and the U.S. Department of Justice on anti-crime initiatives including Operation Legend, which ushered in a surge of federal agents to the state to help stop violent crime.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt Announces Campaign for U.S. Senate

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt Announces Campaign for U.S. Senate

ST. LOUIS – Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced today that he is running for the U.S. Senate in 2022.

“With the radical left controlling all of the levers of power in Washington, we can already feel our values, our culture and our country slipping away.  Now more than ever Missourians need a conservative leader willing and able to take on the left, protect our values and be a voice for all Missourians.  

“We also need a leader who can hold this Senate seat in firm Republican hands without giving Democrats any chance to take this seat back.  Republicans won the last two U.S. Senate seats in Missouri by approximately 3 percent and 6 percent. In my public service, I have never quit fighting for Missouri and our conservative values. Missourians deserve a life-long conservative who they know will never quit fighting for them.

“Missourians know from my public service that they can count on me to stand up to the Biden administration, fight to preserve President Trump’s America First agenda and keep this seat in safe pro-Trump Republican hands.

“We need more fighters in Washington willing to stop the radical cancel culture agenda being advanced by the left that is destroying lives and suppressing speech.

“I am fighting every day to protect and defend our constitution in my service to Missourians as their Attorney General.  I fought alongside President Trump in defending election integrity, championing pro-growth economic policy, protecting our energy independence, and standing up to radical prosecutors who have allowed violent crime to rule our cities instead of upholding the rule of law.  As Attorney General, I’ve already sued the Biden administration and I’m going to keep suing Joe Biden to protect all Missourians when necessary.  I’ve been holding the Biden administration and the Democrats accountable on important issues like border security, the Second Amendment and regulations that cripple our economy.  

“In the U.S. Senate, I will continue the fight to preserve the conservative policies championed by President Trump that built the strongest economy in American history.”

Attorney General Schmitt is a sixth-generation Missourian. He and his wife, Jaime, are the proud parents of Stephen, Sophia and Olivia.
