A coalition of housing groups led by the Alabama Association of Realtors on Thursday filed a lawsuit in federal court in Washington, D.C., challenging the latest eviction moratorium, calling the Biden administration's action "nakedly political" and "unlawful." "[T]he CDC caved to the political pressure by extending the moratorium, without providing any legal basis," the emergency motion says. "In substance and effect, the CDC’s latest action is an extension of the same unlawful ban on evictions that has been in effect since September 2020." "Justice Kavanaugh’s controlling opinion was clear that the CDC could not extend the moratorium past July 31 absent ‘clear and specific congressional authorization (via new legislation),'"

The government should never have been allowed to impose the moratorium to begin with. They have no authority, and that includes on the congressional level.

CDC has absolutely zero authority over housing, in any way, shape or form. Totally illegal, unconstitutional. The CDC needs to be permanently closed.

Funny. Didn't the Supreme Court already say that it wasn't legal to extend the moratorium? Are they going to pay attention if a lower court says the same thing? Note to jurists: This is in-your-face lawlessness. Unless you can get your own strong-arm enforcement group, you might as well put your head in a bag and breath for a while.

Take this all the way up to the Supreme Court. The CDC should be purged.

We can either let this percolate through the court system for three years, or Kavanaugh can issue an immediate injunction to stop this unlawful nonsense.

Why are there no republicans calling for Biden's impeachment? He is not securing the border, moving infected invaders around the country and disregarding the Constitution despite knowing he is breaking the law. If Trump could be impeached over a phone call and for a capitol protest march, Biden can certainly be impeached for real cause. Are there no republicans with a backbone?

Kavanaugh bears a lot of responsibility here. He should have just voted to uphold the law, which he agreed didn’t permit CDC to do this, rather than try to craft policy. Not the court’s job. And of course we have the 4 liberal justices voting for an outcome rather than ruling on the law. Yes Roberts, this includes you.

A man is demanding answers after sharing distressing footage of his elderly dad collapsing and suffering spasms as he's arrested for failing to wear a face mask in public. The stomach-churning incident was filmed on Monday morning in Brisbane's Botanic Gardens after Queensland's lockdown was extended to stem the spread of Covid in the community. According to the man's son, who shared the footage online, he suffers from a medical condition which causes him breathing difficulties and heart problems. During the arrest, he fell to the floor and started to spasm, gasping for air and flailing as he tried to reach for his backpack - which contained his medication.

Tokyo - Jade Carey traveled the world for a spot in the Olympics. Germany. Qatar. Azerbaijan. Australia. (Snip) Carey earned a spot in Tokyo by taking advantage of what turned out to be a one-time-only offer by the International Gymnastics Federation. The sport’s governing body made a provision for the 2020 Games that allowed athletes to lock up an individual nominative spot if they racked up enough points at World Cup events. So the Careys spent 16 months flying to different continents, piling up podiums on vault and floor exercise along the way.

Chicago — Secretary of State Jesse White announced Wednesday that driver services facilities, Secretary of State offices and the Illinois State Capitol building will require all employees and customers to wear a mask beginning Aug. 2. The reinstatement of the mask requirement comes a day after the CDC reversed course on some masking guidelines, recommending that even vaccinated people return to wearing masks indoors in parts of the U.S. where COVID-19 is surging. White says the mandate will allow the facilities to remain open to serve the public to reduce the heavy customer volume caused by the COVID-19 pandemic over the last year.

As the Biden administration continues to peel away the accomplishments of his predecessor, what I hear most from family, friends, and social media posters is a fear that Democrats have become power-mad with their recent ascendancy to a majority position in the House and Senate. They wonder if the current crop of radical officials is hell-bent on weakening, and ultimately destroying, the country that gave them those positions. Beginning with reversing President Trump's southern border policies, which has led to an invasion of illegal aliens unprecedented in our history, to the shutdown of the Keystone pipeline

In eight years, half of American car buyers will be forced to purchase overpriced, underperforming electric cars they don’t want, courtesy of the federal government and a compliant auto industry. That, at least, is what President Joe Biden announced at the White House on Thursday, and it’s just as we predicted in this space three months ago. With a wave of his pen, Biden ordered that 50% of new cars and trucks sold by 2030 are to be electric. Since the auto companies already have their 2022 model year cars in production, that means they have less than eight years

It’s cheap, easy, and lots of fun to highlight Joe Biden’s incoherence and creepiness. Heck, he displays it constantly. Just yesterday, he sniffed a little girl’s hair and made an utterly incomprehensible speech likening police to brawling high school athletes. However, Don Surber, one of the most acute political observers suggests that Biden may be hiding a still-sharp brain behind that decrepit, incoherent exterior. I put it to you, the readers, to make the call. On Thursday, Twitter wasn’t able to stop “Creepy Joe” from trending. The reason was that he was once again caught snuffling at a little girl under the pretext of whispering something to her:
