Looks like the CDC, which does not even comprise elected officials, apparently has the power to effectively nationalize private property.
Recently, both Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters called on the CDC to extend the eviction moratorium, in spite of the fact that the Supreme Court has literally just ruled that further extensions of
However, in an age where fictional news rules and Democrats get whatever they want, including a mail-in election in 2020, it comes as no surprise that the likes of Pelosi and Waters blew off the Supreme Court in favor of publicly whining to the media.
Astonishingly, the whining actually worked, and the CDC unilaterally decided to blow off the Supreme Court and extend eviction moratoriums anyway.
Predictably, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky blamed the extension on the “delta variant.”
“The emergence of the delta variant has led to a rapid acceleration of community transmission in the United States, putting more Americans at increased risk, especially if they are unvaccinated … This moratorium is the right thing to do to keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings where COVID-19 spreads.” [Source: The Western Journal]
This delta variant seems a bit too convenient, given that it has now been cited as possible justification for indoors mask mandates, public school restrictions, and a host of other highly unpleasant reminders of the past lockdown.
Moreover, landlords have absolutely had it with the CDC’s gross overreach, which is precisely why the Alabama Association of Realtors has launched a massive lawsuit against the CDC.
“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.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
The CDC’s latest action is also the embodiment of what a communist government does, as nationalizing private property, along with the private sector, is typically the communists’ first step when it comes to utterly pillaging and plundering a nation.
Additionally, the CDC could also apparently care less about the fact that tenants who “can’t pay rent” can somehow magically buy boats, as observed directly by landlord Buddy Shoup.
“[The money] was used, they went and bought brand new boats, but I mean, you know in a time of crisis like what we’ve been through, you’re evidently getting money from somewhere, but it’s not getting to me.” [Source: Fox News]
In addition, Shoup has had to fork out at least $24,000 to maintain his rental properties, as he, like other landlords, are “still bound by county rules and laws.”
The CDC’s move is quite astonishing considering that not only has the Supreme Court ruled against the constitutionality of an additional extension, but also other courts across the nation.
For example, Circuit Judge John K. Bush, who serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati, illustrated the degree to which the CDC has taken “unprecedented action,” which is also known as breaking the law.
“Ten months ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention imposed an eviction moratorium on rental properties across the country. It found authority for its unprecedented action in a provision of the Public Health Service Act of 1944 …
Plaintiffs sued, arguing that the provision does not grant the CDC the sweeping authority it claims. The district court found in their favor and granted them declaratory relief.” [Source: The Western Journal]
Too bad that the current administration is a bit too in love with “sweeping authority,” as revealed by Psaki herself in a recent press conference.
“I think what’s important to note here is that the president would not have moved forward with a step where he didn’t feel comfortable and confident in the legal justification …
But he asked the CDC and his legal experts to look at what is possible. This is a narrow, targeted moratorium that is different from the national moratorium. It’s not an extension of that.” [Source: The Western Journal]
“Legal justification?” Really, Psaki?
After the Supreme Court just ruled against the extension of eviction moratoriums, not to mention a host of other courts across the nation, Psaki actually has the gall to insist upon some type of mythical “legal justification?”
Needless to say, it’s a frightening time indeed when the supposed President of the United States completely disregards the Supreme Court …
