1) War of the Worlds

We think stopping the $4.5 trillion dollar mega-spending bills complete with a $2 trillion tax hike and the repeal of 26 state right work laws (just to name a few of the gems in these bills) is the biggest and most consequential legislative battle since the Reagan tax cuts 40 years ago.  If the “reconciliation bill” passes, the results for America would be transformational – and financially catastrophic.
 
The left understands the stakes, so we weren’t surprised by this AP headline:



“An array of progressive and pro-White House groups plans to spend nearly $100 million to promote President Joe Biden’s agenda over the next month to pressure Congress while lawmakers are on their August recess.”
 
The groups have organized a “war room” and will hold some 1000 events.
 
“The goal, officials said, was to bombard the home districts of members of Congress with ads — both televised and digital — to keep the pressure on to follow through on their votes…”
 
Gee. $100 million.  Where do these altruistic, progressive groups, who hate capitalism and claim to be operating on shoe-string budgets get that kind of money? These charities are supposed to be helping the poor and downtrodden. They could feed every homeless person in America with a war chest like this. 
 
Who knew that you could get so rich being a community organizer?
 
From a return of investment standpoint, this political power play makes sense.  They take the money that Biden doled out to them in the last $1.9 trillion bill and “invest” those taxpayer dollars in a $100 million lobbying campaign to line their coffers with another $4 trillion or so.
 
Ingenious.
 
Thousands upon thousands of progressives are going to get Learjet rich from this campaign. None of them are going to be poor people.
2) Biden Ignores Supreme Court and Extends Eviction Ban

On June 29, the Supreme Court had a curious 4-4-1 decision on a motion to stay the CDC’s eviction ban.  The four liberals denied the stay.  Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Barrett would have granted it.
 
Kavanaugh – the man in the middle — wrote:
 
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeded its existing statutory authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium. Because the CDC plans to end the moratorium in only a few weeks, on July 31, and because those few weeks will allow for additional and more orderly distribution of the congressionally appropriated rental assistance funds, I vote at this time to deny the application to vacate the District Court’s stay of its order… In my view, clear and specific congressional authorization (via new legislation) would be necessary for the CDC to extend the moratorium past July 31.”

Clear enough, right?  No legislation, no more evictions ban.  Biden even said as much.  Until the far left pushed back, and the CDC came up with the too-cute solution — an evictions ban not everywhere, but for about 90% of the country. This sidesteps  Kavanaugh’s objection to a “nationwide eviction moratorium.”
 
Will the Supreme Court stand for this?  John Roberts should be outraged by such blatant defiance of the Court.
 
Oh and here are the penalties if a landlord dare require a tenant to pay the rent they contractually agreed to pay and violate the new CDC eviction ban order:
