Federal courts from coast to coast are striking down Joe Biden’s attempts to broaden his executive powers to include everything from imposing vaccine mandates to canceling personal debt without Congressional approval.
Judges are unmistakably informing the 46th president that there are no monarchs in America under the Constitution.
Biden’s most recent rebuke came on Thursday night in Texas, where a judge threw out the administration’s plan to forgive student loans that would have transferred more than $400 billion in personal debt to taxpayers without the consent of Congress.

In Louisiana, U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty ruled in September that the Biden administration could not mandate that adults or students wear masks or that instructors, staff, and volunteers in the Head Start program receive the COVID-19 vaccination. In 24 states, the vaccine and mask mandate was permanently blocked by that decision.
Alan Dershowitz says we’ve given the executive branch way too much authority. We desired an autonomous executive who could not be removed from office except for egregious offenses like treason and corruption. But we don’t want to give them the authority to make decisions that belong in the legislature.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that President Joe Biden’s student loan rescue scheme violates the Constitution’s separation of powers.
