The three leftists on the Court exposed who and what they are. There is no compromise with people like that because compromise always keeps moving the ball towards their goal.



Interested to know what the top liberal legal minds of the United States Supreme Court think about government power and your private property? First, take 10 minutes to read Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s opinion, written for the majority, in the court’s Thursday night decision to stop the ban on rental income; then spend another 10 minutes on Justice Stephen Breyer’s dissent.

Here’s a hint: The left thinks its power is so overarching as to impact nearly every citizen, so broadly interpreted as to be essentially limitless, and so singularly vested as to be checked virtually solely at the discretion of the bureaucracy itself.

“Substantially … Tailored”


The absurdity begins in the opening paragraph of Breyer’s dissent, which was joined by Justices Elena Kagan and Sonya Sotomayor. There, he lauds what he describes as the government’s limited and judicious use of its power, writing, “the [Centers for Disease Control]’s current order is substantially more tailored than its prior eviction moratorium, which automatically applied nationwide.” Therefore, he reasons, there’s no reason to even consider if the CDC has any authority on the matter.

How tailored is it, though? He gets to that two paragraphs later, when he cites the number of American counties the order applies to: Ninety percent; the vast majority of the country. This, he openly admits, is the left’s idea of “substantially more tailored;” it’s right there in the open.

Limitless Authority

So where does this “tailored” power come from, exactly? According to the CDC, it comes from the Public Health Service Act, a law Congress passed in 1944 to handle outbreaks of serious disease. It reads:[/b]


The Surgeon General may provide for such inspection, fumigation, disinfection, sanitation, pest extermination, destruction of animals or articles found to be so infected or contaminated as to be sources of dangerous infection to human beings, and other measures, as in his judgment may be necessary.


What’s that got to do with banning property owners from doing business with renters? To forbid them from ejecting squatters from their land? As written, not much at all: Every one of these powers is specific to, as Kavanaugh writes, “identifying, isolating, and destroying the disease itself.”

But according to Breyer, the Public Health Act essentially says “we can kill your dog in a plague, so we also have the power to say you don’t have to work during COVID” — a broad interpretation of congressionally authorized power at best.

Not much when you hack it up and take statements out of context. Which is pretty useless for thinking people.

You essentially just called him a Democrat. He'd be within his rights to punch you right in the throat for that kind of insult.

Government is by nature narcissistic for g'ment is all about power & control, & narcissists are power & control(PC) obsessed. What else could one expect from a segment of society that actually believes that g'ment officials have evolved from mere constituents into full g'ment gods??? That's WHY the statist left constituency exhibits idolatry on such a blindly devoted scale to their fellow statists who EVOLVED into g'ment official gods. Of course there is a LOT more to the bizarre statist left puzzle but the above info I have listed @ least helps explain the narcissistic lefty groupthink mind & it's irrational behavior.

And he get arrested for it. Insults aren’t justification for violence among civilized people.

Democrats are NOT civilized people. Civilized people adhere to personal responsibility and practice tolerance and don't intentionally divide people for political gain.
