The left accused President Donald Trump on a daily basis of being a “tyrant,” a “dictator,” and caring nothing for the “rule of law” or the Constitution.
But of course, Democrats always accuse their political opponents of what they do.
And this case is no different.
In June, the Supreme Court ruled that an eviction moratorium enacted by the CDC was unconstitutional, and that for one to be extended beyond July 31 when it expired, it would take an act of Congress.
Democrats who control Congress couldn’t muster the votes to pass one so they left town last weekend for their summer break.
In the meantime, Joe Biden acknowledged the unconstitutionality of the moratorium but ultimately decided to act like Democrats always falsely accused Trump of acting.
The Biden regime completely ignored the Supreme Court and enacted a new 60-day moratorium anyway on Wednesday.
So, who’s going to hold the regime accountable? Republicans? Don’t make us laugh.
It’s going to fall to the private sector, as usual, because no one on Capitol Hill has any guts, credibility, or honor.
The Daily Wire reports:
A realtor association is filing suit against the Biden administration over its eviction moratorium.
As The Daily Wire reported on Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an order preventing landlords from evicting their tenants — a policy originally passed by the Trump administration under the guise of stopping the spread of COVID-19. According to the agency, a person violating the order 'may be subject to a fine of no more than $100,000 or one year in jail, or both, if the violation does not result in a death, or a fine of no more than $250,000 or one year in jail, or both if the violation results in a death.'
In response, the Alabama Association of Realtors argued in a lawsuit filed Wednesday against the Department of Health and Human Services that the CDC's order suspends the rule of law.
The lawsuit states:
The CDC caved to the political pressure by extending the moratorium, without providing any legal basis. In substance and effect, the CDC's latest action is an extension of the same unlawful ban on evictions that has been in effect since September 2020.
The Supreme Court ruled that only the Legislative Branch — not the Executive — had authority to extend the moratorium. Critically, the CDC knew that the White House had repeatedly stated that new legislation was necessary to extend the moratorium, given the absence of executive legal authority. Congress tried, but failed, to enact a legislative extension in reliance on those representations. Yet rather than accept that as the final word under our constitutional system (which the White House initially appeared to do), the CDC extended the moratorium anyway.
And the CDC did so for nakedly political reasons — to ease the political pressure, shift the blame to the courts for ending the moratorium, and use litigation delays to achieve a policy objective. The Court should block the August 3 extension on an expedited basis to relieve the nation's property owners of the burden of complying with this unlawful agency action.
The Biden regime and the Marxists running it are the greatest threat to our republic since the Civil War. This just proves it.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
