after moratorium expires

Original Article

AURORA, Colo.  — Last October, Samantha Pate and Andrew Martinez took a photo to mark the day they got their new apartment. On Saturday, one day before the nationwide eviction moratorium ends, their family of four, could be giving those keys back and out in the elements. “We might be evicted,” the couple said. “We might be evicted,” the couple said. They say they’re struggling to keep up with rent. “Eight months, about $8000,” they said.  CORRECTION*


So they had money to buy land, but not pay their rent. It sounds like they took advantage of the free ride and stiffed their landlord in order to keep paying on their property in Fairplay.

Well, let’s base national policy on their point of view. I wonder if the nyt will do a story about how they regret not saving money for rent.

Here come the sob stories from everyone who thinks they should be able to live rent free on someone else’s property. I don’t mean to be cold but these property owners have mortgages, taxes, maintenance and other costs. This should not come out of their pockets.

While Mr. Martinez’s man bun render him less sympathetic, I do feel for this couple. Considering the billions of virus-relief dollars that have accrued to leftist outfits like the teachers’ unions it is wrong that people who have been destroyed by government lockdowns are thrown out of their houses. I feel also for landlords who cannot keep non paying tenants. So-called COVID relief is another scam perpetrated by our corrupt representatives.

Published July 26, 2021, "The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the national eviction moratorium mandated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is unconstitutional. The court said in its ruling that the matter ultimately needed to be resolved by Congress." The last sentence, above, really means that if the government mandates that landlords cannot evict for non-payment of rent, the government must reimburse the landlord for the lost rents. Otherwise it's an "unconstitutional taking." Nearly every law student was taught this as "Constitutional Law" is a required course, at least in every good law school. There's no doubt the CDC's lawyers, and probably other federal government lawyers, advised that this moratorium was unconstitutional, but such advice was simply ignored. Too bad this took until late July, 2021. Landlords have lost $millions, if not $billions, of rents they will not recover, as Congress is not going to reimburse these landlords.

I've been in the Aurora area many times over the years. When one thinks of Colorado with mountain views and outdoor activity, this isn't it. Aurora is mostly illegals where in most places Spanish is the only language spoken. It's not an ugly area, but it's not somewhere people go on purpose.

#6 - as you point out, this is yet another government-caused crisis. While I too feel sorry for this couple, I know that I worked with my tenants to allow all of us to weather this storm. I didn’t want to make them leave (leases expiring in the middle of Covid would have Eliminated the need to evict anyone), but more importantly, we reached agreements that got me income and kept them in their rented homes. Not a single government employee missed a paycheck.

Surprised that there aren’t articles about the landlords who haven’t been paid rent while they still have to pay property taxes on the complexes, insurance, utilities and maintenance staff. Why are reporters only covering deadbeats who take advantage of our welfare system. Why is that? Also, the rents of other residents will have to increase or their services decreased in order to cover the shortfall. Yet we never read stories as to why.

Do people really think that their debts will somehow be magically erased. I see a hefty lien on their property coming and a parade of process servers taping notices on their tent flaps. Forget ever getting another loan for anything and even employment will be a problem with a credit score in the low 500s. Better to stick it out, work out a solution with your landlord and pay your debts. They may also be in for a nasty surprise on their new property. If the water rights didn't convey with the land they cannot drill a well and I also believe that in Colorado it is actually illegal to collect rain water. Every drop of water that falls on the state already belongs to somebody else and you cannot impede rains drainage into streams or aquifers. In the middle of a mega drought look for these laws to be enforced with more vigor than usual. And they just alerted the authorities both of their land ownership and of their recent rainbarrel purchase.

Maybe instead of buying land and camping gear they should have paid rent. Who rented to a family with four dogs ? There are a lot of people who can't handle money. Period. Maybe seniors trying to exist every year on less than $13k a year should be hired to teach whiners to hand money.

A Texas woman shot and killed an alleged peeping Tom standing outside her bedroom window through the exterior wall of her home with a barrage of rifle fire, police say. The shooting took place at around 11.15pm Friday on Irvington Boulevard in Houston, and when cops arrived at the scene, they said, they found the man lying dead on the driveway of the house. The woman was in her bedroom, and told officers that she became scared after she saw a man looking through her window.

The Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has died at the age of 80, it has today been announced. The London-born drummer joined the then-fledgling band in 1963 after meeting Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones while playing in rhythm and blues clubs. Along with Jagger and Richards, Watts featured on every one of the band's studio albums. He was widely regarded as one of the greatest drummers of all time. Watts was due to tour the US with the band later this year.

But it admitted as many as 3,154 (43 per cent) had likely come to A&E for 'a diagnosis unrelated to Covid' and tested positive later through routine swabbing.

Frustration over the mostly feckless national Republican Party is nothing new. Those of us on the political right have few electoral options given our two-party system. In some elections, the choice is stark and easy, as when Reagan or Trump were at the top of the ticket. Other years saw names like McCain or Romney on the ticket and many of us held our noses voting Republican only because it was the better of two lousy choices. The leftist agenda moves forward regardless of who is elected, at the presidential or congressional level, the only difference being the speed of decline.

I held off on writing about the “F*** Joe Biden” chants that began at college football games a couple of weeks ago. I had three reasons. First, I’m not a fan of obscenities because I think they cheapen speech. Second, these chants were initially small groups at Southern colleges, which really didn’t seem like a “thing.” Third, I wasn’t going to get excited until I learned whether the chants had legs. Well, it turns out they do have legs and they’re becoming large chants at multiple games (including New York baseball games). And most importantly, Joe Biden knows about them and isn’t happy.

The wheels of insanity in the OBiden Administration are about to fall off again. Rather than solidifying President Trump’s policy of peace in the Middle East, OBiden’s actions are likely to blow the entire region up into another OBiden mess. President Trump went to the Middle East and visited world religious leaders on his first overseas visit in an effort to bring peace to the Middle East. President Trump inherited ISIS terrorizing the Middle East as well as Iran and both these terrorist entities were backed by the OBiden gang. President Trump’s strategy was peace, not horror and destruction.

There’s a reason that the folks who plan Joe Biden’s days decided that he shouldn’t give any official remarks today as he visited the three 9/11 sites for remembrance ceremonies. I think they knew that if he opened his mouth and stuck his foot in it on such a solemn occasion, this time it would be before the world and it would be too hard for media to ignore. So as we reported earlier, they prerecorded some remarks for him where he spoke, gazing off into the distance, about “unity,” and looking like death warmed over. He did show up at the 9/11 ceremony at Ground Zero and then later
