The Supreme Court’s left-wing justices all spouted a stunning amount of misinformation about COVID during the high court’s hearing Friday on President Joe Biden’s widely panned private business vaccine mandate.

Not that a single person in the establishment press seems to care …

Kagan

Justice Elena Kagan claimed that “the best way” to prevent the spread of the coronavirus is “for people to get vaccinated” and “wear masks.”

Both claims are false or, at the very least, unproven.

“While the vaccines appear to slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the chance of death, there is absolutely no evidence that they prevent transmission, especially not against the much more contagious omicron variant,” the Washington Examiner notes.

As for masks, Kagan didn’t specify which type of mask. This matters because most people wear cloth masks, which even CNN talking heads have admitted are useless.

Breyer

Justice Stephen Breyer claimed that 750 million people had tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday, implied that the president’s vaccine mandate would stop the virus dead in its tracks, and asserted that hospitals are fuller than they’ve ever been.

The 750 million claim was obviously false, given that the total U.S. population isn’t even as high as half of that.

As for his implication, the Examiner notes that he’d “implied, like Kagan before him, that Biden’s vaccine mandate would bring the number of daily cases down to zero.”

But this, according to the conservative paper, was false: “Fully vaccinated and boosted adults are testing positive for COVID-19 at about the same rate as unvaccinated people, which means everyone is going to get the virus one way or the other, vaccinated or unvaccinated.”

Also false was Breyer’s claim about hospitals:

Sotomayor

Justice Sonia Sotomayor spouted the most misinformation, falsely claiming that COVID deaths are at all-time high, that the Omicron variant is deadlier than the Delta variant, that 100,000+ children are currently hospitalized because of COVID and that the government agency that instituted the mandate has “police power.”

For starters, data from Worldometers shows that about 1,500 to 2,000 Americans are currently dying daily from COVID. This is notably less than the nearly 4,500 who were dying daily during the winter of 2020/2021.

Second, even trusted so-called “public health experts” have admitted that the Omicron variant isn’t nearly as deadly as the Delta variant.

“All indications point to a lesser severity of omicron versus delta,” Dr. Anthony Fauci himself said during remarks made roughly a week ago.

Third, according to journalist Michael Tracey, Sotomayor’s claim about 100,000 hospitalized children amounted to a 2,892 percent inflation of the actual number of hospitalized children.

And lastly, OSHA does not possess “police power.”

None of these statements have received scrutiny from the establishment press or their infamous talking heads.

However, several talking heads have taken conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to task for allegedly inflating the number of Americans who die from the flu every year. According to them, his misstatement makes him ignorant.

Look:

Actually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average of 12,000 to 52,000 Americans per year died from the flu between 2010 and 2020.

Moreover, the evidence suggests Gorsuch’s far-left critics are the ones who need to be fact-checked:

Yet thanks to the press’s one-sided, deceptive coverage, “Neil Gorsuch” was trending on Twitter as of early Saturday morning. Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor were not:

But if Gorsuch is ignorant for one misstatement (that it appears wasn’t even a misstatement but rather a transcription error), what are Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor, who spouted a litany of false statements?

If nothing else, critics say, they’re awfully disrespectful and their behavior demands a correction, at the very least, if not a deep review of the standards used to pick Supreme Court justices …
