The Supreme Court Just (Finally) Stood Up for Property Rights against the CDC’s Lawlessness

by Brad Polumbo, Activist Post:

When it comes to upholding Americans’ constitutional rights, late isn’t good enough. But it’s still better than never. With its Thursday ruling striking down the federal government’s so-called “eviction moratorium,” the Supreme Court is finally doing its job—and standing up for Americans’ basic property rights.

The Centers for Disease Control policy in question prohibited landlords from evicting non-paying tenants in many circumstances, all in the name of stopping the spread of COVID-19. It began in September 2020 and threatens non-compliant landlords with penalties of up to a year in jail and $100,000 in fines. The policy did not, however, place a “moratorium” on landlords’ mortgage payments and bills. As a result, it has ruined countless middle- and working-class landlords and turned the rental market upside down.

White House Tells Businesses to Ignore the Federal Court Order That Halted Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Over “Grave Constitutional Issues”

by Jon Miltimore, Activist Post:

On Saturday, a federal court halted the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more workers, citing possible “grave statutory and constitutional issues.”

The emergency stay, issued by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals, puts a hold on the administration’s requirement that those workers be vaccinated by Jan. 4 or face other measures, such as weekly tests and mask requirements.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry had argued the Biden administration “could not impose medical procedures on the American people without the checks and balances afforded by the constitution.”
