Biden Threatens Emergency Powers if Roe overturned

Postby bignflnut » Fri Jun 17, 2022 12:46 pm

I guess it might not actually be "the law of the land"?

WASHINGTON, June 17 (Reuters) - Encircled by an ominous security fence and off-limits to the public since March 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised in the coming weeks to issue a major ruling that could dramatically curtail abortion rights from behind closed doors with not a single justice in sight.

No members of the public have been allowed in the courthouse since COVID-19 pandemic precautions were implemented in March 2020. The scene at the court has become more tense following protests and threats against some of the nine justices prompted by the May leak of a draft opinion indicating they are set to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. The court has a 6-3 conservative majority.


Biden would use the declaration of a public health emergency to shield doctors from legal liability for treating patients in a state where they are not licensed, according to a report in the New York Times.

^^^SNIP^^^

The president warned that overturning Roe v. Wade would cause a “mini-revolution” in the United States.

“It’s just ridiculous in my view and I don’t think the country will stand for it, but I think what we’re going to have to do, there’s some executive orders I could employ, we believe, we’re looking at that right now,” he said.

Biden’s staff appears more than willing to weaponize emergency and wartime executive powers in politically fraught situations.


!!!!!Public Health Emergency!!!!!!

Sound familiar?

Don't believe for a moment that RKBA will be untouched by this - in the name of Public Health.

Enjoy Juneteenth on the 20th!

So much for that quaint old "Three Co-Equal Branches of Gubmint" thing we learned about in the 60's.

C'mon, man.............

Maybe, perhaps, Ol' Joe will simply use that war powers act thing that he invoked to make the solar panels stuff.

Yes, you are correct, that doesn't apply to medical stuff, but it really doesn't apply to solar panels either. See?

-Soda straw and peas
-Sharpened pencil
-Newspaper roll

Yeah, I'm that good

What's he going to do, tell the fbi to not go after abortion doctors? It's not like executive orders or emergency powers can create laws.

Were you here for 2020?

While you're technically correct, the entire nation was ruled by governors emergency executive orders. We all were subjected to face diapers and closures from sea to shining sea.
