The Supreme Court of the United States has laid down a devastating blow to the encroachment of socialism into the American Government and society. SCOTUS with a 6-3 majority ruled to vacate the Biden-Harris CDC’s second national eviction moratorium which replaced the first that expired July 31st. The CDC under Biden re-created the moratorium despite a ruling from Justice Kavanaugh that warned of the original moratorium’s unconstitutionality but refrained from vacating it merely because it was nearly expired.
In the ruling, the court eviscerates the CDC for their hubris and chastises Congress in turn for their failure to act after they were informed by Justice Kavanaugh that an act of Congress, not a decree of the Biden administration would be required to enact any kind of moratorium on eviction.
The justices explained, that the old moratorium which expired July 31st, and the new one ordered August 3rd are materially the same save for a minor change in “geographic scope” drawing attention to an obvious attempt to subvert the court’s ruling.
“This Court declined to vacate the stay. Alabama Assn. of Realtors v. Department of Health and Human Servs., post, p. ___. JUSTICE KAVANAUGH concurred, explaining that he agreed with the District Court that the CDC’s moratorium exceeded its statutory authority. But because the CDC planned to end the moratorium in only a few weeks, and because that time would allow for additional and more orderly distribution of congressionally appropriated rental assistance funds, he concluded that the balance of equities justified leaving the stay in place. JUSTICE THOMAS, JUSTICE ALITO, JUSTICE GORSUCH, and JUSTICE BARRETT noted that they would vacate the stay.
The moratorium expired on July 31, 2021. Three days later, the CDC reimposed it. See 86 Fed. Reg. 43244. Apart from slightly narrowing the geographic scope, the new moratorium is indistinguishable from the old.”
The Justices concluded their remarks noting the lack of Congressional action and the lack of authority for the Centers for Disease Control to impose such a sweeping measure.
“It would be one thing if Congress had specifically authorized the action that the CDC has taken. But that has not
happened. Instead, the CDC has imposed a nationwide moratorium on evictions in reliance on a decades-old statute that authorizes it to implement measures like fumigation and pest extermination. It strains credulity to believe that this statute grants the CDC the sweeping authority that it asserts.”
The Biden-Harris Regime Complains, And Calls For Cities, States, Lower Courts & Agencies To Defy SCOTUS
Joe Biden, rather than attempting to salvage the situation and call upon Congress to take up the mantle and actually (here’s a thought:) Legislate rather than allowing him to administratively dictate has taken an incredibly disturbing tack in direct defiance of SCOTUS and The Constitution of the United States. In a statement, Press Secretary Jen Psaki wrote,
“The eviction moratoriums issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) saved lives by preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus throughout the pandemic.
The Biden Administration is disappointed that the Supreme Court has blocked the most recent CDC eviction moratorium while confirmed cases of the Delta variant are significant across the country. As a result of this ruling, families will face the painful impact of evictions, and communities across the country will face greater risk of exposure to COVID-19.
“In light of the Supreme Court ruling and the continued risk of COVID-19 transmission, President Biden is once again calling on all entities that can prevent evictions – from cities and states to local courts, landlords, Cabinet Agencies – to urgently act to prevent evictions. ”
Yes, you read that right. Read it twice to be sure: Biden is now calling on “all entities that can prevent evictions” specifically calling upon cities, states, lower courts, and even AGENCIES OF HIS OWN CABINET to take action that SCOTUS has now TWICE deemed unconstitutional and circumvent their ruling. It’s impeachment time folks. When a Republican majority takes over the House and the Senate in 2022, THIS MUST BEGIN ON DAY ONE.
