Biden: So what if the eviction moratorium is unconstitutional

Biden: So what if the eviction moratorium is unconstitutional

Yesterday, despite the Sixth Circuit court already ruling that the CDC does not have the authority to create this eviction moratorium, the CDC extended the eviction moratorium for another two months.

And how did President Biden respond? Sure, it’s unconstitutional, but we’re doing it anyway. Worse still, Biden admitted yesterday that allowing an unconstitutional eviction moratorium to continue will give them time to send out rental assistance checks as any lawsuits challenging it work their way through the courts.

But as Georgetown law professor Jonathan Turley pointed out yesterday on Twitter, the first step any court will take is to order an injunction halting the program while it works its way through court. In other words, Biden won’t be buying time at all.

Unless of course the Administration simply chooses to ignore any injunction from the court.

And given this administration’s past practice, that’s a distinct possibility.

A federal court also barred the Biden administration from processing any new applicants into the DACA program. They’re defying the order and still processing new applicants anyway.

I’m trying to imagine former President Trump admitting on camera that he is knowingly going to violate the Constitution. Holy mackerel. Could you imagine the hue and cry?

All those ResistanceLOL screamers would have been rending their garments and gnashing their teeth over the “dangerous” “fascist” undermining our “democracy.”

They’re not doing that now though. Nope. Instead, they’re praising Biden for defying the court and forcing through an unconstitutional moratorium while screwing over every single American who owns a rental property.

In order to perpetrate his war against working class Americans, this decrepit old shit won’t even let the US Constitution get in his way. Hell, he doesn’t even have the decency to hide what he’s doing. Instead, he admits, hey, sure it’s unconstitutional, but we’re doing it anyway.

And the people who will pay a heavy price for this eviction moratorium are told to pound sand.

Actually, they aren’t just told to pound sand. They’re being threatened with jail. The CDC – which is not a legislative body – has declared that any landlord that does not obey its eviction moratorium dictate will face prison and fines.

What a shit-show.

But hey. No more mean tweets about Mika and Joe, am I right?

    A shit-show for sure.
    As a side note, I could never figure out why Trump didn’t ignore more of the numerous partisan court injunctions placed on his actions by Obama judges. So many times I found myself saying, “Ignore them! Do it anyway!”

    I hate to ask, but are the Republicans in Congress (or in the RNC) keeping a list of Constitutional and Federal law violations that the Biden Admin is committing? This would be perfect fodder for impeachment proceedings if the GOP retakes the House and Senate with sufficient majority to actually vote to impeach. Ah, who am I kidding. The likes of Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham wouldn’t do anything to go after the Democrats (even if deserved). The GOP’ll just ‘tsk tsk’ at the Dems and go about their business of selling out the country (though at a slightly slower pace than the Democrats).

      With the exception of a handful, the Republicans have no spine. Just look at McConnell. Total loser. (He is one of the 17 Republicans Senators who are OK with this BS “infrastructure” bill. Include Miss Lindsey in that).

      There has been enough material in the 7 months this doofus has been occupying the W.H. to start impeachment hearings. The Democrats went after DJT for a letter. What Biden & Co. have done to our country is absolutely criminal.

      They should hang.

    I confess I used your words to chew out my senators and representative and told them to channel their inner Governor DeSantis – sorry (not sorry 😆) but this shit needs to be addressed pronto.

    While I’m in the confessional, I wrote out a script using the above confessed purloined column and forwarded it to my sister who has not bothered to involve herself in politics until now.

    Thanks for your column!
