      CDC issues new eviction ban for most of US through Oct. 3

      Of course we can’t expect Congress or Biden to do anything.

      Not to say it isn’t necessary, but the executive branch ignoring the courts can be seen as a step to authoritarianism. Think about it – a government functionary can say, “F the court, I have to do my job”, and the police say, “He was a criminal – I say so.” What’s next?

      The progression I see – “vote as we say or someone “everyone” knows is EVIL INCARNATE will take over!”  > “The Party can nominate anyone it wants!” > “Joe and Nancy are sitting on the ball, some political appointee has to do it!” > “Gulag or death, it’s MY choice!” Sounds hyperbolic, but think – allow someone you can’t even name to make arbitrary decisions what will happen? At first he will only do things everyone accepts, then more and more he will do whatever he wants. Complain? First he will ignore you, then he will have you arrested, then he will have you shot. We don’t see the third, but more and more we’re seeing the second.

        October 3 is on a Sunday. The next day, the Supreme Court is back in session, and should there be another attempt to extend the eviction ban then – and the spread of the Delta variant pretty well insures there will be – then it will be conveniently timed for the right wing extremist court to shut it down.. and then the Biden/Pelosi types can cry crocodile tears and say “hey we tried…. it was those goddamned right wing judges”.
