DEVELOPING: Supreme Court Strikes Down Democrats’ Eviction Moratorium During Pandemic

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.27.21

The Supreme Court rejected the Biden administration’s eviction moratorium during the COVID-19 pandemic late Thursday, saying any protections for Americans harmed by the virus must be authorized by Congress.

“If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue, Congress must specifically authorize it,” wrote the judges in a 6-3 decision.

 

“The Biden administration is disappointed that the Supreme Court has blocked the most recent CDC eviction moratorium while confirmed cases of the delta variant are significant across the country,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said late Thursday. “As a result of this ruling, families will face the painful impact of evictions, and communities across the country will face greater risk of exposure to COVID-19. In light of the Supreme Court ruling and the continued risk of COVID-19 transmission, President Biden is once again calling on all entities that can prevent evictions – from cities and states to local courts, landlords, Cabinet agencies – to urgently act to prevent evictions.”

“Landlords, big and small, are most angry about the moratoriums, which they consider illegal. Many believe some tenants could have paid rent, if not for the moratorium. The $47 billion in federal rental assistance that was supposed to make landlords whole has been slow to materialize. By July, only $3 billion of the first tranche of $25 billion had been distributed,” reports Fox News.

PELOSI: Without Eviction Moratorium ‘Baby Cribs’ Would Be ‘On the Streets’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.09.21

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi praised President Biden’s decision to extend the eviction moratorium for America’s renters Thursday; saying failure to act would lead to “baby cribs” on the streets.

“I really want to commend the President of the United States for his courageous action and informed action on extending the eviction moratorium… Renters can be saved, and landlords can be paid. Can you just imagine, families on the streets? Baby Cribs? Personal belongings on the street?” asked Pelosi.

“So, thank you Mr. President for the courage and the initiative that you took,” she added. “I also want to thank Maxine Waters.”

Congresswoman Maxine Waters confused millions of Americans on social media last week when she bizarrely demanded the CDC “extend the eviction moratoriums” in the United States, then asked “Who is going to stop them?”

“I don’t buy that the CDC can’t extend the eviction moratorium – something it has already done in the past! Who is going to stop them? Who is going to penalize them? There is no official ruling saying that they cannot extend this moratorium. C’mon CDC – have a heart! Just do it!” posted Waters on Twitter.

The firebrand progressive made national headlines in April after she dismissed all criticism of her policies as “a message to the white supremacists.”

I am nonviolent,” said the Congresswoman.

“Republicans will jump on any word, any line and try to make it fit their message and their cause for denouncing us and denying us, basically calling us violent … any time they see an opportunity to seize on a word, so they do it and they send a message to all of the white supremacists, the KKK, the Oath Keepers, the [Proud] Boys and all of that, how this is a time for [Republicans] to raise money on [Democrats’] backs,” Waters added.

“This is who they are and this is how they act,” she said. “And I’m not going to be bullied by them.”

“This is a time for [Republicans] to keep telling our constituents that [Democrats] are the enemy and they do that time and time again,” Waters claimed. “But that does not deter me from speaking truth to power. I am not intimidated. I am not afraid, and I do what needs to be done.”

'HEY JOE!' Dan Crenshaw Rips Joe Biden on Energy, Asks if He Prefers ‘Dirty Fuel from Russia’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.24.20

Rep. Dan Crenshaw called-out Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden on social media Friday; asking if the former Vice President prefers “importing dirty fuel from Russia.”

“Hey Joe, last year US emissions dropped by 2.1% largely because of Republican-led efforts to deregulate natural gas, a cleaner burning fuel.

Last week, Democrats actually demanded a moratorium on building gas pipelines.

I suppose y’all prefer importing dirty fuel from Russia?” asked Crenshaw.

“Our planet cannot afford four more years of Donald Trump,” posted Biden earlier this week.
