The quote, “There ain’t no such thing as free lunch” appeared as early as 1938 as the punchline of a joke in an article in the El Paso Herald-Post of June 27, 1938. Epictetus in his Enchiridion (maxim Nr. XVIII) states “… nothing is acquired for free, and necessarily must cost us some thing”.
On September 4, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) imposed a nationwide temporary federal moratorium on residential evictions for nonpayment of rent. The order is intended to prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) by preventing homelessness and overcrowded housing conditions resulting from eviction. The action, which followed an Executive Order directing the CDC to consider such a measure, was unprecedented, both in terms of the federal reach into what is traditionally state and local governance of landlord-tenant law and its use of a public health authority.
As a result of this order, many people across the United States stopped paying their rent. As this happened, many landlords across the United States no longer received monthly rent that was used to pay mortgages on their properties, maintain those properties, and for some, put a roof over their heads and keep food on their tables.
At the same time, many of the people who no longer had to pay their rent were receiving generous subsidies of money from the government in addition to unemployment checks. A North Carolina landlord says he is out $24,000 in unpaid rent from tenants, while one renter bought three boats over the course of the eviction moratorium. Buddy Shoup, who owns 35 properties across the state, said that he has been forced to maintain the properties and hemorrhage costs while the federal government slowly dribbles out rental assistance, of which only 7% has been doled out to renters in need.
On June 29th the Supreme Court of the United States issued a statement declaring that “the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeded its existing statutory authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium”. This statement fell short of ending the CDC moratorium on evictions.
On July 23rd, 2021, The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the national eviction moratorium mandated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is unconstitutional. The court said in its ruling that the matter ultimately needed to be resolved by Congress.
Because the House of Representatives failed to extend the eviction moratorium before leaving town for seven weeks, the Biden administration has now done what the Supreme Court specifically said it doesn’t have the authority to do: CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Tuesday signed another order extending the eviction moratorium until October 3. This new order applies to counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission of COVID-19, which covers most of the country.
If you, as a tenant, think the politicians and unelected bureaucrats are on your side when they say you don’t have to pay your rent because of Covid-19, think again. They are playing you. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. They are knowingly or unknowingly bringing the economy of the United States to its knees. They are making you more dependent on the handouts of the state. They are weakening the power, independence and autonomy of our nation so that it will fold into the “new world order” along with the other nations of the world, under one government, one economy and one religion, headed by one world ruler, the Antichrist. By the time all this happens you will not be in a position to resist because of your dependence on the governments so-called “entitlements”.
The moguls behind what they call, “The Great Reset” are not shy about their motives. The one group most seen as the tip of the spear when it comes to this reset, is called, The World Economic Forum. This organization is unashamedly sharing everything they are doing and desire to accomplish right on their website. Their leader, Founder and Executive Director Klause Schwab, has written a book detailing he and his cohort’s plan to “re-imagine and to re-draw” the world.
Let’s get back to the eviction moratorium. The moratorium states that landlords cannot evict tenants who are unable to make rental payments. Now this seems very compassionate on the part of our government but it begs a lot of questions like, “Where does the CDC get the authority to make this order? “How does the government prove that a tenant really doesn’t have the money to make rental payments?” “What about the landlords? How are they going to manage their business with little to no income?” “How are landlords going to provide for the needs of their own families with reduced income?”
Few have considered the serious fallout that occurs when tenants don’t pay their rent. Very few are concerned about the landlords, who are regular people, that pay mortgages on the properties they rent, and are being forced out of business as the banks foreclose and take possession of their properties. No one is talking about the months of rent owed by the tenant that will eventually have to be paid when the moratorium is lifted. Unsympathetic banks will foreclose and take possession of the landlord’s properties and petition the tenant for rent that has accumulated. Tenants that are not able to pay this humongous sum will be evicted. The tenant’s credit score and rental history will be adversely affected resulting in difficulty in finding a new place to live. No landlord will rent property to a tenant with poor credit and a terrible payment history. As this happens, hundreds of thousands of families will become wards of the state which will pay the rent, health insurance, and other “entitlements” for the unemployed and homeless, including a universal basic income.
As I said earlier, the World Economic Forum’s plan is to bring the United States to its knees. This is one of the reasons the Biden administration is spending trillions of dollars and printing billions of paper currency that does not correspond to the value output of our nation’s economy. This out-of-control spending will soon lead to hyperinflation as nations around the world, that once depended on the stabile value of the dollar, lose their faith in it and switch to another standard and monetary system.
Globalists also have a plan to do away with cash and currency and move everyone to a central bank digital currency (CBDC) so everyone can be tracked. This CBDC will allow the globalists to control everything that is bought and sold as citizens are limited to using plastic debit cards, digital wallets and some sort of biometric ID. Perhaps a vaccine passport will be integrated into this digital currency which will allow the globalists to track and control everywhere a person goes. It’s my opinion that the vaccine passport will one day soon become the Mark of the Beast written about in Revelation chapter 13:
“And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (vs. 16-18)
The Bible tells the reader that this will take place and teaches that all the nations of the world will be under one global government and leader, one global economy and one global religion. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 says:
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it (the Day of the Lord) will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
Ever since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal” of the 1930’s people in the United States have been conditioned to look to the government as “Savior” while simultaneously looking away from the God of Creation who has promised to supply the needs of those who believe and follow Him (Matthew 6:19-34). Much of the world has followed Roosevelt’s early form of socialism or succumbed to the contemporary deception of Marxism taught in the form of “social justice” and “Critical Race Theory (CRT)” that’s been disseminating in our schools, media, movies, houses of worship, places of employment and military. Perhaps a conglomeration of the social justice movement, climate change, and Roman Catholicism that will constitute the religion of the New World Order.
Enough of my rant.
