Federal Judge Hands Biden Administration Crushing Legal Defeat

Joe Biden seems to be in a freefall of absolute disasters in our nation that even Stevie Wonder could see.

From Biden’s absurd handling of COVID-19, the southern border crisis, and Afghanistan the Biden administration is as bad as the New York Yankees look in post-season.

It is pathetic and it is no wonder our country is a laughing stock of the entire world.

Biden has been trying to hold it all together and keep his base rallied but that even seems like a losing task, especially after this crushing blow.

After Texas announced legislation to ban abortions after six weeks, the Biden team went to work in an effort to block the bill.

As in typical liberal fashion, it appears that Biden and his commie comrades still do not grasp the rule of law and were shot down by a federal judge.

LifeNews reported:

“BREAKING: A federal judge has denied Joe Biden’s emergency request to block the Texas abortion ban that has saved almost 2,000 babies from abortion,”

“United States District Judge Robert Pitman in a one page decision this afternoon denying Biden’s request to block the law while the lawsuit against it continues,” the website reported.

“[T]his case presents complex, important questions of law that merit a full opportunity for the parties to present their positions to the Court,” Judge Pitman, an Obama appointee, wrote. “Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the United States’ Opposed Motion for Expedited Briefing Schedule, (Dkt. 13), is DENIED.”

The Supreme Court in early September handed the organized left a stunning moral and legal defeat by essentially upholding Texas’ Heartbeat Law. A number of the state’s abortion providers had brought lawsuits over the legislation, which gives expectant mothers six weeks to decide whether or not to terminate the life of a developing child.

As National Review notes, the 5-4 decision “came down along ideological lines, with Chief Justice John Roberts and the Court’s three liberal justices dissenting.”

“The applicants now before us have raised serious questions regarding the constitutionality of the Texas law at issue,” the court’s majority wrote. “But their application also presents complex and novel antecedent procedural questions on which they have not carried their burden.”

“In reaching this conclusion, we stress that we do not purport to resolve definitively any jurisdictional or substantive claim in the applicants’ lawsuit,” the decision said. “In particular, this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’s law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law, including in Texas state courts.”

The decision forestalls an October hearing of a Mississippi case that could determine the constitutionality of the issue, which was purportedly addressed by Roe v. Wade in what is considered by several legal scholars to be a flawed and questionable decision.

I am sure this will not in any way stop Biden and his team of government overreach in other areas of our lives but thankfully, they were stopped this time.
