After this week, Joe Biden is going to want to find the nearest basement and stay down there. It’s like the guy can’t catch a break. It’s inept comment after bungled decision after screw up at the White House these days. And when he does make a decision, the Supreme Court is there to whack him across his backside.
They did it again.
First the high court decided on a 6-3 tally that they wouldn’t issue a stay on the Trump-era “Stay In Mexico” policy, whereby illegals trying to get into this country without going through the proper immigration procedures would have to stay in Mexico while they await their court hearing. Donald Trump imposed that directive during his term and along with building “the wall” it seems to have stemmed the tide of illegals trying to breach the border. I mean, who wants to spend 18 months in Mexico when you can gain access to the United States and roam free for a year and a half, and then just not show up for your hearing? Biden decided enough was enough with that and tried to do away with the plan. He was sued, and a lower court judge said that it had to remain in place. It was appealed to the Supreme Court and they said, they would not issue a stay while the appeal was going through it’s process. So, for the time being those folks wanting to break in to our country have to wait outside the gate until they get invited in.
And then the Supreme Court did it again.
On Thursday, even though the Supremes are in recess until the first Monday in October, they slapped down Biden’s extension of his eviction moratorium due to COVID. Biden was afraid that once the eviction moratorium was over, landlords all over the country would demand back rent from their tenants, and if they didn’t cough up what they owed, they’d get booted. So, he extended the moratorium unilaterally until the end of September. Of course, you and I know he was going to try and make it permanent at some point in time. The Supreme Court, on a 6-3 vote (can you guess the three?) decided that wasn’t right. It takes an act of Congress to extend the moratorium. That means it’s pretty much doubtful that Congress is going to do anything before the end of September. They’ve got the infrastructure bill which is waddling it’s way through, and is having a hell of a time in both chambers. They’ve also got that $3.5 trillion budget that the House is excited to pass now that the moderate Democrats have caved, but won’t see the same result in the Senate since Joe Manchin and Krystin Sinema are both against it, so they can’t even get to 50 votes in a budget reconciliation move so K-baby Harris can break a tie. At best it’s going to go down to defeat there 48-52.
So, on top of the misery that he’s caused at the southern border, and on top of the absolute abortion known as the Afghanistan withdrawal, Joe Biden has been swatted pretty hard by the Supreme Court.
All I can say is Thank God for Amy Coney Barrett! She’s been a breath of fresh air on the bench!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
