Imagine if people who eat at restaurants didn’t have to pay anymore. What would happen to restaurants?
And what businesses would be targeted next?
Thanks to Joe Biden, obediently following the dictates of the de facto President Nancy Pelosi, renters who are behind on rent payments will continue to not be evicted. It’s an extension of a federal moratorium against evictions in response to COVID, that all-purpose excuse for trashing the U.S. Constitution, U.S. elections, U.S. personal liberties.
The NY Post Editorial board says this:
“America is now being ruled not by President Joe Biden but a small, radical minority that couldn’t care less about the US Constitution..knowing full well he was likely breaking the law and violating his oath of office.”
It used to be that moves like this were legislated, but Pelosi and other top Democrats failed to wrangle the votes for the extension when moderate Democrats refused to crush landlords with the punishing edict, according to coverage by The Daily Wire.
Biden even argued in late July that he lacked the authority to extend the moratorium without Congress’ approval, citing signals from the Supreme Court that any potential extension would be struck down.
Now Biden has reversed himself. The ban on evictions is draconian:
“A person violating this 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 or s otherwise provided by law,” the new order, drafted by the Centers of Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) states.
“An organization violating this Order may be subject to a fine of no more than $200,000 per event if the violation does not result in a death or $500,000 per event if the violation results in a death or as otherwise provided by law,” the order continues. “The U.S. Department of Justice may initiate criminal proceedings as appropriate seeking imposition of these criminal penalties.”
