The judge says the CDC has no standing to impose such a thing (duh….
Via Washington Post:
A federal judge in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday ruled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention overstepped its legal authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium, a ruling that could affect millions of struggling Americans.
In a 20-page order, U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich vacated the CDC order, first put in place during the coronavirus pandemic under the Trump administration and now set to expire June 30.
“It is the role of the political branches, and not the courts, to assess the merits of policy measures designed to combat the spread of disease, even during a global pandemic,” the order states. “The question for the Court is a narrow one: Does the Public Health Service Act grant the CDC the legal authority to impose a nationwide eviction moratorium? It does not.”

The early days of the pandemic did not result in a baby boom.
Four percent fewer babies were born during 2020 than the year before, as the fertility rate in the US plunged to the lowest in decades, according to new government data released Wednesday.
Women of all races and maternal ages procreated less last year then in 2019, the report said.
“This is the sixth consecutive year that the number of births has declined after an increase in 2014, down an average of 2% per year, and the lowest number of births since 1979,” the National Center for Health Statistics said.
Soon. Soon. 2024 is almost here.

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that Facebook and other Big Tech companies that censored him “must pay a political price” — responding to Facebook’s decision to continue a ban on his account.
The Facebook decision added momentum to Republican efforts in Congress to either break up Facebook and other Big Tech platforms, or to outlaw viewpoint discrimination.
“What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before,” Trump said in an emailed statement.
“The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.”
Hurry up, supplies are limited.

Seychelles, which has fully vaccinated more of its population against Covid-19 than any other country, has closed schools and canceled sporting activities for two weeks as infections surge. The measures, which include bans on the intermingling of households and the early closure of bars, come even as the country has fully vaccinated more than 60% of its adult population with two doses of coronavirus.
But he still stays banned? lol
