Joe knew his government was exerting power the Constitution didn’t grant. But he went ahead with it anyway … because activists aligned with his party wanted it.
We all know what the media would be screaming if Trump had passed legislation, or given authority for an alphabet agency under his purview to defy SCOTUS and act beyond Constitutional limits. The cries of ‘impeach him’ would have been deafening.
But that never happened. In fact, when Democrats challenged Trump’s policies in court, he usually won, if not at first, then later, upon appeal. But Joe, as he likes to remind us, isn’t like ‘the previous president’.
When SCOTUS told him ‘no’, Joe himself admitted that the CDC probably didn’t have the power to unilaterally enact the policy Democrats had tried (and failed) to put into law through conventional means. But he was going to let them do it anyway. That doesn’t square with his oath to defend the Constitution, and would itself have been a legitimate reason to start talking about impeaching him.
Having failed to pass legislation, Dems — led by the Squad — looked for a way to cheat the system. They made a lot of noise talking about how just how unfair ending the eviction moritorium would be to renters, the CDC acted against their own guidance and extended the moritorium until October.
For context — the power the CDC was trying to weild in under the guise of CCP virus response was a ‘re-imagining’ of CDC’s very limited legal power to fumigate a building in the instance of an infestation.

This ban had been previously struck down by the court in areas where outbreaks had significantly lessened… with exemptions in places where the bug was still a problem. Now the entire moritorium has been struck down as illegitimate.
The US Supreme Court on Thursday night struck down a federal eviction moratorium that was recently extended by President Joe Biden’s administration without congressional support.
The decision to end the pandemic-related eviction freeze came as a result of a legal challenge to the policy brought by a coalition of landlords and real estate trade groups.
On Aug. 3, the moratorium was extended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, despite a lack of congressional approval.
It was a 6-3 decision in which 3 of the 4 liberal judges (Chief Justice Roberts sided with the conservatives this time) dissented out of Delta variant fears.
Predictably, the left is outraged. NYC’s Mayor Bill de Blasio is blasting this decision as ‘right-wing extremist’.
The White House, Pelosi, and others are similarly raging.
Our prediction? This rulling will be used as part of the left’s justification to ‘rethink’ our justice system… in the same kind of way that they ‘rethought’ the CDC’s lawful powers, or they ‘rethought’ police funding, etcetera.
While de Blasio is raging, maybe he should look in the mirror…
Sir, NY still has 98% of their rental aid sitting in its coffers. NY has distributed the same amount as Wyoming. Your citizens deserve so much better. https://t.co/FFKDHRUtwL
