One year ago, Walensky was simply a college professor in Massachusetts. You never voted for her because she’s never run for office. She’s a “physician-scientist” who now weilds power to make all the rules that you follow. Why? Out of 320 million people in America, Biden chose Walensky and appointed her director of the CDC.
“The CDC does not make laws in this country,” Carlson writes. “It’s not allowed to. Under the U.S. Constitution, making laws is the exclusive role of Congress.”
“But apparently, it is now over,” he continues. “Rochelle Walensky now makes the laws. Walensky announced today that she has decided to nationalize America’s rental properties, millions and millions of them from Maine to California. Tenants are no longer required to pay their rent.”
It was recently reported that property owners cannot evict tenants under any circumstances from their own property. This means that making someone pay to live on your property is now a federal crime.
“Try it, and you can wind up in prison, with hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines,” Carlson says, noting the harsh penalties if the law is broken.
How did this happen? Here’s more from Carlson’s opinion:
At the same time, you should know, property owners will still be required to pay the banks that hold their mortgages. There’s no moratorium on mortgages. Why? The banks are huge Democratic donors, and they’re getting the treatment they paid for. Sandy Cortez and The Squad aren’t calling for the banks to do their part. It’s property owners who will suffer, many of them members of the rapidly disappearing American middle class.
It’s hard to overstate what a momentous change this is. It means among other things that private property no longer exists in the United States. You thought you owned your home. Not anymore. Rochelle Walensky does. She’ll decide who can live there, under what circumstance and for how long.
Is this a good idea? Of course not. It’s totalitarian. But there’s an even more pressing question at the center of this story — a principle that defines what kind of country this is and what kind of country it will be going forward: Where did Rochelle Walensky get the power to do this, to suspend private property rights in America? The answer is, she simply asserted the power. Walensky claimed she had the authority, and no one stopped her from exercising it. This morning she signed an official-looking order declaring that her opinion is now the law, and so it is the law. But wait, you say. That doesn’t seem very American. Shouldn’t somebody vote on this? If we’re going to continue to pretend this is a democracy, and you hear that on television constantly, then shouldn’t our elected lawmakers make the laws? Nope. And they’re not going to. Nancy Pelosi has refused to call a vote on the matter, and she runs the Congress, she decides. Most Republicans haven’t said a word. That means that an unelected college professor you hadn’t heard of six months ago is now in charge of your country.

If you’re wondering how all of this can possibly be legal, rest assured that it’s not — it’s not even arguably legal. We know for a fact that it’s not. The Supreme Court just ruled on the question, specifically. The court found that the CDC does not have the right to institute a nationwide eviction moratorium. Period.
