Yesterday, ‘President’ Biden violated his oath of office when he announced that the CDC was extending its illegal moratorium on evictions for another two months. Thus, the “fundamental transformation” of the United States from a constitutional Republic to a lawless Dictatorship continues. Biden is knowingly acting in defiance to both the Supreme Court and his own legal advisers.
At the end of June, a majority of the justices on the Supreme Court agreed with a lower court decision that the CDC had exceeded its authority in imposing a moratorium on evictions and mortgage foreclosures. Despite this acknowledgement of the lawlessness of the CDC moratorium, Justice Brett Kavanaugh voted with the liberals on the court to leave the ban on evictions in place because of its pending expiration and “because those few weeks will allow additional and more orderly distribution of the congressionally appropriated rental assistance funds.”
But Kavenaugh also wrote in his separate concurrence:
“In my view, clear and specific congressional authorization (via new legislation) would be necessary for the CDC to extend the moratorium past July 31.”
Biden ignored this clear indication that the majority on the court agrees that the CDC moratorium was illegal and could not be extended, even on extra-legal pragmatic grounds, past July 31. Furthermore, Biden even acknowledged that he was disregarding the opinions of legal scholars who told him that this action would be unconstitutional.
“I’ve sought out constitutional scholars to determine, what is the best possibility that would come from executive action or the CDC’s judgment? What could they do that is most likely to pass muster, constitutionally? The bulk of the constitutional scholarship says it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster, number one [emphasis added]. But there are several key scholars who think that it may, and it’s worth the effort.”
In plain English, what Biden is saying that he is willing to take any action he wants if he thinks he can get away with it, even if he knows the action is unconstitutional. He didn’t even try to make an positive argument about how this action was constitutional. Instead, Biden is announcing that he is willing to act unlawfully and will seize as much power as possible. This is the action of tyrannical dictator, not that of a legitimate president sworn to uphold the rule of law and the constitution.
