Governmental power is spelled out, not arbitrary


Acting without authority is…. tyrannical

Biden and the rest can only act with power delegated by the people

A disturbing message became clear when the White House decided to circumvent existing law, the Constitution and an emphatic decision from the U.S. Supreme Court. Contracts matter. Rental agreements matter. And the federal government lacks any semblance of authority to declare (as the CDC did): People may live on other people's property without paying to do so, in defiance of contract terms, rent payments, leases, etc. The government's eviction "moratorium" is ultra vires — it exceeds legitimate legal power.

Attempting to extend a controversial and questionable moratorium on evictions—and negating the duty to pay rent for places to live – shows serious disdain for the rule of law. Squatting is against the law. Property owners have contracts. Enforceable contracts are a linchpin of functioning economies and society. Owners are entitled to be paid, and eat, and care for their families as much as anyone. Demanding they tolerate lawlessness, so people forced out of work by government edicts can live rent free—illegally squatting on land that isn't theirs—violates every tenet of American law.

This mindset, that government can do whatever it likes, favoring one party over another without legitimate authority to do so, signals the destruction of The American Way. We know many in America would like to see this, destroy us from within. The socialist/Marxist/progressive forces, aligned behind civilian disarmament, are pursing this on multiple fronts, including this one. From a nominee for the firearms bureaucracy who has shown repeated disregard for the Bill of Rights, to proposals to literally disarm the public and forcibly confiscate weapons from we the people, such actions push the public to the brink of civil unrest, and leftists should cease and desist while there is still time to safely do so. Leftists are rioting in the streets; their civilization-wrecking commands may well push the rest of the nation to do the same.


“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of 'gun control' as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called 'gun control' does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”
