No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. 5th Ammendment to the Constitution of the United States.
The Feds did nothing with this until 1876. Then one day they woke up like a new baby that discovered they had toes. Wow, a new toy.
Then all hell broke loose. Arguments that the states were not covered by Due Process nor the "Takings Clause".
Until the 14th amendment, the states ran wild and stole all they could via Eminent domain and "lands needed for Public Use" Just by passing a law, Congress could ok the theft. After a few false starts, the 14th finally gave "Nor Be Deprived of Life , Liberty, or Property" the same power over states as it did to deny omnipotence to the Feds. It recognized the 5th as haveing domain over the Fed and the States, via multiple USSC decisions.
Do you wonder where this is going? If you take my property or deny me the use of or access to my property, you have to have approval from the courts and pay me for the "taking". And..... I require just compensation.
Please explain to me how a clause in the constitution can be ignored and trampled on by an appointed (not elected) Gobernment employee. ie, Center for Disease Control.
The "guidance " issued by the CDC does not have the same weight as our constitution. It is not law. Hell, even the president and congress are obliged by their oath to protect and serve according to the Constitution.
So how does a suspect businessman masquerading as a doctor decide to take your rental properties from you and give them to people and govt entities that are borrowing them. Take them by breaking a contract with the renters and allowing them to stay but not pay?
The Guidance issued by the CDC and Health and Housing issued a moratorium on evictions during the time they decided the China Virus is a threat to the public. Now the CDC is back for more. Some discussion here on a Ban that the Supreme Court has upheld already. You can not "take" with out compensation. The executive branch has decided to ignore the Supreme Court and extend the uncompensated "taking" until Oct 3. Suprisingly , that is when the Supreme Court will be back in session. How convenient .
If this is truly a threat, would not other threats enjoy the same work around to violate the protections of our Constitution? . Public Saftey is a broad umbrella. People Die. Don't you care about the rest of these deaths?
Which of these health issues below cause more deaths annually ?
Heart Disease 700,000
Covid 19 345,000 . disputed
Drug overdose 70,000
If a public health crisis dictated taking your property, then why doesn't heart disease and Cancer plus Diabetes and Stroke, and DUI, and Drug overdose , and etc and etc dictate the taking of property? Just Asking? Dr. Fauci.
Using the same logic as the US Dept of Health has used to issue guidance, 370% more people die each year from heart issues and cancer. This moratoriam should be extended permanently . Until all heart disease , cancer, diabetes, hospital/doctor mistakes, drug overdoses, and DUI deaths are prevented.
Do you see where this is going? Where does it stop?
Full disclosure , I have family members that have died from heart disease and stoke, and Alszheimer, and DUI , and Drug overdose. I strive not to discriminate because of this new form of the flu. I am considered at risk because of my advanced age and health conditions. I presently have anti-bodies because of a previous bout of the China Flu. No, I am not going to live forever.
