Four States Will Be in Defiance Of Federal Court Order If They Comply With CDC’s Eviction Moratorium; Judge In Large Tennessee County Is Refusing To Enforce CDC’s Edict

This seems shocking. It shouldn’t be, but it is. A county judge in Tennessee is defying the authoritarian bureaucrats at the CDC and allowing evictions to continue in Tennessee’s 4th most populous county.

New eviction moratorium won't help you, judge tells families in Hamilton County Thursday

Seventy-seven families appeared Thursday morning in Hamilton County eviction court, where a judge told them that a new eviction moratorium won't help them.

He [County Judge Jerry Starnes] says that's because, a higher federal court ruled the CDC did not have the authority to impose the moratorium to begin with. The 6th circuit court of appeals at Cincinnati ruled in July that the CDC had overreached by imposing the moratorium.

Since the 6th circuit court ruled the CDC had overreached, Starnes explains the order does not apply to Hamilton County residents.

Quite simply, Judge Starnes is specifically complying with a ruling from the 6th Circuit Court.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which encompasses Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio, ruled in late July that CDC lacks the authority to issue pauses on eviction. And the CDC order itself says it does not apply “to the extent its application is prohibited by federal court order.”

Tennessee Supreme Court General Counsel Rachel Harmon circulated a message Wednesday to court officials, saying “this new eviction moratorium does not apply in Tennessee” because of the 6th Circuit ruling.

Good on the Tennessee Supreme Court’s General Counsel for advising Tennessee courts that the eviction moratorium does not apply in the state. But we better start hearing reports that the other major Tennessee counties are also ignoring the CDC’s moratorium.

What about Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky? If they apply and enforce the CDC’s eviction moratorium, it would be an overt and intentional act of defiance of our federal courts.

On the other hand, if Michigan does choose to defy a federal court order on the eviction ban, and there are no consequences, then I can think of a whole lot of federal court orders that I’m ready to see red states start ignoring.

--------------------------------

False promise? Probably. Don't think it's to be seen as a centrist, though. I think he's hoping the landlords will be happy that they don't have to go after their renters, and the renters will be happy they don't have to repay all the rent they skipped, and all that happiness will translate into votes against the recall.

56 in regards to Michigan's refusal to obey federal law, I would point out this is not the first time

"The Michigan Personal Freedom Act of 1855 defied the hated fugitive slave act and helped nullify it in practice. In 1850, Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act, denying any semblance of due process to people accused of being an escaped slave, and legally forcing everyday people to help slave catchers."

Granted it is in a different axis this time, but nullification is nullification. And imagine that, this time it is about claims as to what is and is not property, again!

Someone on the Twats had a good thread about this.

139 I saw the entire Larry Elder interview by the Sacramento Bee. It's been a while since I listened to any long-form adversarial interview conducted by a coterie of smug leftist pricks. Elder did quite well -- in such a way that will clearly agitate the Left and raise his profile as a target. He was a Gatling gun of facts and unapologetic conservative positions. They kept trying to set him up with BS narratives, and he slapped them down with controlled, cordial sharpness. I would classify his responses to 1/6, Trump election fraud and global warming as disappointing to the conservative base. But he partially made up with attacks on media double standard. The idea of being rebuked and called out to their faces is always shocking to these assholes. At times they were stunned into silence. One female journalist (she sounded like a 12-year-old girl) straight-up attacked Elder for anti-Semitism. She was obviously reading some prepared sheet. His smackdown was a thing of beauty. She obviously hadn't done her research as Elder may be the least anti-Semitic black man on the planet.

184 Story at HotFart that when Lori Lightfoot (mayor of Chicago) tried to speak with the father of a killed police officer, said father let her have it, blaming her for the city's massive uptick in attacks against cops.

Supposedly Lightfoot stayed calm and respectful. Here's the link:

Sure. Why not? With everyone else's tax dollars. No skin off his nose. And the way it'll shake out is that it won't even come out of CA state government funds except via a Federal bailout called "infrastructure" or other legislation. Cost shifting is both a science and an art. Politicians are the best in the world at running the game.

Lottery? Here, it's a sure thing, straight-up payment:

The state health department announced the new $100 Summer Card incentive on Tuesday. From August 4-31, North Carolina will give $100 pre-paid Mastercards to anyone 18 and older who gets their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a participating site - while supplies last.

If you drive someone to their first vaccine appointment, the state will give you a $25 card. You can even do this multiple times.

"Drive as many times, to as many appointments as you’d like. Drivers will receive one Summer Card* per first-dose visit," the NCDHHS's website reads.

231 Todd Zwicki, a prominent law professor at George Mason U Law School, has sued his college based on the fact that he had covid and can demonstrate through six antibody tests that he has immunity and subsequently covid vaccinations would possibly be dangerous and useless.

Start preparing for a potential lawsuit by getting a covid antibody test if you have or believe that you have had Covid already. Virtually all medical research indicates that having Covid once generates a stronger immune response and longer lasting one than do the vaccines. Some of the original SARS 1 victims demonstrated immunity to Covid 19 over a decade later. In addition, it is believed that about 20 percent of common colds annually are caused by coronaviruses and that may also confer a degree of immunity to covid 19.
