Democrats usually come together in unison when fighting against Republican policies.
But division is brewing among Democrats.
And Karine Jean-Pierre put Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on notice with two words that had all hell breaking loose.
U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk handed down a ruling against the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the abortion-inducing drug mifepristone.
The Left erupted into a frenzy over the ruling, as they view abortion pills as a way to skirt Pro-Life laws in Red states.
When it comes to abortion-on-demand, the Left is willing to dig in their heels and fight tooth-and-nail until the end.
Since pharmacies are prohibited from distributing any drug not approved by the FDA, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling on Joe Biden to force the FDA to approve mifepristone despite the court’s ruling.
“The Biden administration should ignore this ruling,” Ocasio-Cortez declared during an interview on CNN. “What they are currently doing is engaged in an unprecedented and dramatic erosion of the legitimacy of the courts. It is the justices themselves, through the deeply partisan and unfounded nature of these rulings that are undermining their own enforcements.”
Joe Biden is already using the FBI and Justice Department as political weapons against Trump and his supporters.
Biden now refusing to comply with a decision handed down by a federal judge would end the rule of law and potentially throw America into a violent state of anarchy.
Karine Jean-Pierre even admitted during a press briefing that it would be a very dangerous precedent if Joe Biden were to ignore a court ruling.
“We understand the frustration,” Jean-Pierre said during a recent press briefing. “We get the frustration regarding this decision, absolutely, and that’s why we were quick to act. That’s why you saw DOJ take action . . . we stand by FDA’s approval of mifepristone and we’re prepared to have a long legal fight here. That’s our commitment to women out there, that’s our commitment to Americans across the country. But, I’ll say this. It is dangerous . . . as a precedent. As a dangerous precedent is set for a court to set aside the FDA’s expert judgment regarding a drug’s safety and efficiency, it would also set a dangerous precedent for the administration to disregard a binding decision.”
Even though Biden won’t ignore the ruling, Jean-Pierre said the administration will appeal the decision through the legal system.
“So, that’s what I’m getting to. But again, we are ready to fight, this is going to be a long fight. We understand this,” Jean-Pierre concluded.
Joe Biden understands that if he ignores the decision handed down by Judge Kacsmaryk, the next Republican President will use the same power to strike down rulings GOP voters oppose.
