POTUS Biden Will Invoke His Emergency Powers to Vaporize Debt Ceiling
There is no sign that a Debt Ceiling agreement will be reached between Republicans and Democrats. President Biden is teasing the 14th Amendment. But with no guarantee that the far-right Supreme Court will uphold that – his executive order will also be based on another premise.
The Republican House is playing right into President Biden’s hands by refusing to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and prevent the United States from defaulting on its debt. Biden has sounded like he was ruling out the 14th Amendment section 4, which states the Debt of the United States will not be questioned because I and others are convinced it’s his oath of office that gives him the emergency powers to step in at the last minute and eliminate the debt ceiling which has existed for 100 years to prevent the economic meltdown a default on the U.S. debt would trigger.
So, the Executive Order Biden will sign as the clock and calendar hit June 1, 2023, at 12:01 AM will be his oath of office, putting the Supreme Court in a position to decide that the 14th Amendment does not apply but that any President in the same position does have the power to eliminate the debt ceiling to uphold his sworn oath as Commander in Chief.
This view is shared by Harvard Professor Emeritus Laurence Tribe who has been in close consultation directly with President Biden.
The decision by President Biden to take action will be a show of strength and resolve not seen since President John F. Kennedy ordered the racial integration of schools in the South. It can also be compared to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt taking executive action to help the country recover from the depression.
A show of strength like this will make President Biden unbeatable in 2024 and force the far-right to argue against his decision from saving the U.S. and the world economy.
The Republicans can’t escape the reality that 70% of the national debt was incurred during the Republican Presidencies and they can’t escape the fact that most of them voted to increase the debt and spend 25% of the existing Federal debt under a disgraced, sexual predator, twice impeached, criminally indicted former President Trump.
Suppose the Supreme Court does overturn the coming executive order imposed at the last minute by President Biden. In that case, it will lead to financial crises and a historic blue wave that literally forces President Biden to agree to reform the Supreme Court by expanding its number and imposing ethical rules and criminal law that retroactively that lead to the indictment of three of its Republican-appointed members, Judges Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch.
There may be as many as 10 justices appointed by President Biden to the Supreme Court n 2025 and 2026 for a total of 13 liberals and 2 conservatives. Assuming Chief Justice Roberts does not resign in protest. Roe versus Wade would be restored, we'd finally get immigration reform, gun rights would be rolled back, and gerrymandering would be eviscerated in favor of independent, bipartisan boards with courts empowered to ensure equity.
The huge blue wave in 2024 will be fueled by….
- The Presidential strength Biden shows in the approaching crisis
- Mass shootings taking place across the United States
- The draconian reproductive laws imposed by red state legislatures
- Republican attacks on the free speech of corporations
- Republicans’ unwillingness to roll back the tax cuts of the ultra-rich
- The indictments of Trump and his co-conspirators
