Biden Eviction Moratorium Canned by Supreme Court

Now what?

Published

on

At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, Americans began to realize that there was not just one calamity barreling toward us from over the horizon, but two:  A viral emergency that was going to wreak havoc on the at-risk among us, and another, far more widespread problem of just how we’d keep the world’s economy humming along in the face of what was to come.

So far, that answer has been cash; cold, hard cash given from on-high to those who need it most.  Workers who became unemployed at no fault of their own were suddenly staring down enhanced unemployment benefits.  Those having trouble paying their student loans or mortgages were allowed to defer the cost with minimal-to-no impact on their financial standing.

And those who couldn’t make the rent were told that they’d be protected from eviction until the pandemic was over.

The Supreme Court has decided this week, however, that the Biden administration’s extension of the eviction moratorium is not in good legal standing.

The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration’s Covid-related eviction moratorium.

“Congress was on notice that a further extension would almost surely require new legislation, yet it failed to act in the several weeks leading up to the moratorium’s expiration,” the court wrote in an unsigned, eight-page opinion.

“If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue, Congress must specifically authorize it,” the court said.

This latest round of litigation was prompted by the version of the moratorium rolled out by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on August 3, days after the last iteration of the moratorium had expired.

There’s no telling if Congress would be willing or able to pass such an act, however, given the bitter partisan divide that has largely gummed up the legislating process over the last several years.

SEE IT: Amtrak Train Derails in Montana, Killing Several and Injuring Dozens

Investigators still don’t know what caused the derailment.

In a cruel twist of irony, the end of Rail Safety Week was marred by tragedy in Montana on Saturday, as an Amtrak passenger train careened of the tracks in Montana, perplexing investigators.

The incident caused a vast majority of the 10-car train to derail, injuring dozens and killing at least three people.

Amtrak joined federal safety officials Sunday to investigate a Montana train derailment that left at least three people dead, seven people hospitalized and rural communities scrambling to provide food and shelter to the stunned survivors.

The westbound Empire Builder train with 141 passengers and 17 crew members derailed Saturday afternoon near Joplin, a town of less than 200 people a few miles from the Canadian border in Liberty County. The tragedy occurred as Amtrak was closing out its nationwide, annual Rail Safety Week.

“The NTSB is launching a go-team to investigate Saturday’s derailment of Amtrak’s Empire Builder train,” the National Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter, adding that the team would be based in Great Falls, Montana.

Images of the carnage were soon trending on social media.

Vaccine Mandate Cold Cause Healthcare Worker Shortage in Major City

This is WILD!

Published

on

With the number of Americans concerned about the potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine remaining steady, establishments that are now dealing in vaccine mandates are in for a rude awakening.

For months now, the vaccination rate has remained steady here in the United States, despite full FDA approval for some of the inoculations, and a steady stream of pressure from the Biden administration.  The issue is that, of all the folks who want to receive a vaccine, nearly all have.  Those remaining unvaccinated are doing so by choice.

And that’s why a coming vaccine mandate could wreak havoc on the New York City healthcare worker population.

New York state officials are bracing for staffing shortages when the state’s health care worker vaccination mandate takes effect on Monday, and could be looking to the National Guard — as well as medical professionals from other states and countries — to help address them.

Gov. Kathy Hochul released a plan on Saturday, outlining the steps she could take to increase the workforce in the event that large numbers of hospital and nursing home employees do not meet the state’s deadline.

“We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal,” she said.

That could mean declaring a state of emergency to allow health care professionals licensed outside of New York, as well as recent graduates and retirees, to practice there. Other options include deploying medically trained National Guard members, partnering with the federal government to send Disaster Medical Assistance Teams to local health and medical systems and “exploring ways to expedite visa requests for medical professionals.”

And, to make matters worse, those who find themselves terminated for their choice to remain unvaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment benefits, further infuriating those who believe that waive their cache to receive an inoculation are being discriminated against.
