When the Biden administration came into power, it led with one executive order after the other. President Biden has forced through a series of executive orders; he did this with no regard for the harm or the subsequent impacts on American people or society.
Thankfully, what we’re seeing now is the power of checks and balances kicking in. Recently, a Texas, Trump-appointed judge ordered that Biden must reinstate Remain in Mexico, an immigration policy stemming back to the Trump administration. When Biden subsequently attempted to appeal this ruling to the Supreme Court, the court merely reiterated the point from the Texas judge.
This week, the Supreme Court dealt yet another blow to Biden’s lawlessness. As noted by Breitbart News, the Supreme Court ruled that the eviction moratorium can not go on any longer.
The Supreme Court on Biden’s Eviction Moratorium
Biden’s eviction moratorium essentially prevents the eviction of Americans who cannot pay rent. Supporters of this measure have touted it as critical to saving countless individuals from losing their homes; however, there’s a flip side to this.
Many property owners have issues with the eviction moratorium. Not being able to legally collect rent or kick out tenants who don’t pay is a problem; furthermore, despite the inability to collect rent, property owners are still on the hook for taxes and other property expenses.
The majority says that the CDC, in barring evictions, relied on "a decades-old statute that authorizes it to implement measures like fumigation and pest extermination."
"It strains credulity to believe that this statute grants the CDC the sweeping authority that it asserts."

Following the most recent expiration of Biden’s eviction moratorium, the CDC extended it. However, on Thursday, the Supreme Court struck down the program, furthermore noting that the CDC did not have the authority to extend this. The Supreme Court’s ruling follows after landlords have sought legal action to end the eviction moratorium as well.
Law and Order Takes on a Lawless President
The checks and balances of law and order are more necessary than ever with the current president occupying the Oval Office. The thing about the Supreme Court’s latest ruling is that this isn’t a surprise.
In fact, weeks ago, Americans warned that the CDC did not have the power to issue an eviction moratorium extension. At some point, even the Biden administration admitted that only Congress could further extend the moratorium. Ultimately, however, the 46th president used the CDC as an attempt to circumvent the law.
Joe Biden’s unconstitutional eviction moratorium extension was struck down tonight by the Supreme Court 6-3. Is this the worst first eight months for any American president ever? I think it may well be.

Thankfully, this did not work and the Supreme Court put this feckless president in his place yet again. This is very good news for many landlords and others who believe in the importance of private ownership and property rights.
