DEFIANCE: CDC To IGNORE Supreme Court Ruling Over COVID Eviction Ban

CDC, together with Biden, is out of control!

We’re talking about the CDC openly defying a ruling by the Supreme Court. Everyone knows what would have been if Trump defied the Court or if a Republican Governor or a Republican state defied the Court.

Under Biden, the CDC got away with Defying an order from the Supreme Court.

The eviction ban made because of the COVID-19 pandemic was set to expire. During the last 11 months, people couldn’t be evicted from their homes due to financial hardship because of the pandemic.

The Supreme Court ordered that the ban can’t be renewed through executive order. The ban can only be renewed through legislative action. Shortly said, the ban has to pass Congress and then be signed into law by Biden.

The CDC issued a federal eviction moratorium and banned evictions.

The CDC ignored and flat out defied the US Supreme Court.

If the CDC wanted to do it in front of the public, what are they doing behind closed doors?

CNBC covered the story:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a new federal eviction moratorium on Tuesday.

The eviction ban will be targeted at areas of the country experiencing high levels of coronavirus infections and will last for 60 days until Oct. 3. The protection could cover around 90% of renters.

The CDC’s original eviction ban, which had been in effect since September 2020, expired on July 31.

More than 11 million Americans remain behind on their rent, and the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread. Research has found evictions lead to a spike in virus cases and deaths.

The White House previously had said it couldn’t extend the eviction ban again after the Supreme Court ruled in June that the policy could only be renewed through legislation.

It’s unclear how the court will respond to this new moratorium, but it could at least buy states and cities more time to distribute the $45 billion in rental assistance allocated by Congress. Just around $3 billion of that money had reached households by the end of June.

The Court announced the ruling clearly.

Also, the CDC’s first eviction ban is unconstitutional, and it can’t be extended or renewed.

National Review covered this story:

Well, well, well. If you had “Progressives Try to Establish a CDC-Led Dictatorship to Further a Policy Illegally Promulgated by Donald Trump” on your 2021 Political Bingo card, I guess it’s time to collect your winnings.

Summing up the “You and Whose Army?” approach that has long marred the federal response to COVID, Representative Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) proposed yesterday that if Congress can’t muster the votes for a renewal of the national eviction moratorium that President Trump ordered in September of last year, the director of the CDC should simply declare the renewal herself.


If that sounds like an overstatement, consider that the CDC’s apologists are not content merely to gift these legislative and executive powers to its director; they want the judicial branch to abdicate its role, too. At Slate, Mark Joseph Stern urges his readers to take aim at “the primary culprit: the Supreme Court,” and submits that the CDC has been forced to relinquish its power “because of SCOTUS.” “Blame the Supreme Court,” Millhiser writes today. “This is a problem created by the Supreme Court.” In Congress meanwhile, Representative Cori Bush (D., Mo.) wants President Biden to ignore the Court, reissue the ban, and, as NPR’s Steve Inskeep put it to her, “tell anybody who doesn’t like it, ‘Sue me.’”

Or, as Maxine Waters would say, channeling her inner Andrew Jackson: “Just do it.”

As usual, the problem that Millhiser, Stern, Bush, and Waters have is not really with the Supreme Court, but with the Constitution itself. “Just do it” may be a good slogan for a sports-apparel firm, but in a republic such as ours, it’s an utterly deleterious governing mantra. There are rules here — rules that Bush, Waters, and others have taken an oath to uphold. And under those rules, as suggested by the plain text of the Constitution and confirmed by the Supreme Court, the CDC has “exceeded its existing statutory authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium.” That being so, the eviction moratorium must end.

If anything, the Supreme Court has been far, far more indulgent of the moratorium than it should have been. Not only did the Court provide a window for the policy to be dismantled in an “orderly” manner — despite a majority of justices’ affirming that it was flatly illegal — but, in his concurring opinion, Justice Kavanaugh suggested that the scheme could probably be continued if the agency were to obtain “clear and specific congressional authorization (via new legislation).” As a matter of bad precedent, Kavanaugh may well be correct; over the years, the Court has had many chances to rein in the excesses set in motion by the New Deal, and it has rarely taken them. As an originalist matter, though, it seems abundantly clear that, irrespective of which branch is writing the regulations, the federal government lacks the power to order a national eviction moratorium per se. There is precisely nothing in the U.S. Constitution that accords this authority to Washington, D.C., and the claim that the interstate-commerce clause awards Congress the power to set the terms of every single rental contract in the United States makes even the stretched reasoning of the Wickard v. Filburn decision seem admirably sober.
