A new analysis says that the Biden administration is persistently working to erode the credibility and standing of the country’s highest court, especially in response to a series of rulings with which the White House disagrees.

According to the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), the Department of Education earlier this week issued new “guidance” for universities and colleges that effectively informs institutions how to best ignore the U.S. Supreme Court’s June ruling striking down racial preferences in admissions practices.

“The document specifically tells admissions offices that while they can’t consider an applicant’s race in choosing whether or not to accept them, they can consider how an applicant’s race has affected their life,” AMAC noted in an analysis.

“According to the examples provided in the guidance, universities could use ‘an applicant’s explanation about what it means to him to be the first Black violinist in his city’s youth orchestra or an applicant’s account of overcoming prejudice when she transferred to a rural high school where she was the only student of South Asian descent’ as a factor in admitting them over another candidate,” the analysis noted further.

AMAC continued:

In other words, the administration is giving schools the green light to continue pursuing the same discriminatory admissions schemes the Court just outlawed. Instead of schools using an applicant’s race to determine whether or not they are admitted, the guidance says, schools should use an applicant’s experience being that race. It is a distinction without a difference.

“Although this case is one of the most obvious examples of the Biden administration telling the public to ignore a legitimate Court decision, it is hardly the only one,” the organization noted further.

In June, the Court struck down Biden’s student loan forgiveness program, a decision that legal experts from diverse viewpoints had widely considered potentially unconstitutional. Nevertheless, in response to the ruling, Biden promptly revealed an alternative strategy to circumvent it, consistently questioning the court’s jurisdiction.

While refusing to present a substantive defense of his plan, Biden instead accused the court’s originalist justices of aligning with “Republican elected officials and special interests,” as if that is grounds to ignore the court and undermine its authority as a separate branch of government.

Meanwhile, the government’s plans to tax the wealthy may soon be overturned in light of the court’s recent ruling that Biden’s $430 billion transfer of student debt was unlawful.

Moore v. United States may have the greatest influence on Biden, despite the fact that the court will hear cases this fall involving the right to bear arms, the authority of federal agencies, and whether the phrase “Trump too small” can be trademarked. That debate centers on Biden’s frequently expressed desire for a wealth tax and whether it could be implemented.

“Reward work, not just wealth. Pass my proposal for a billionaire minimum tax,” Biden said during the State of the Union address earlier this year. “Because no billionaire should pay a lower tax rate than a school teacher or a firefighter.”

“Biden later proposed a 25% annual tax on all gains to wealth in excess of $100 million in a given year, including unrealized capital gains which aren’t currently taxable. The White House says that the tax would only apply to the top 0.01% of the highest earners,” The Washington Examiner reported.

“While the proposal faces long odds with a Republican-controlled House of Representatives, it could be nixed permanently if the high court rules such a tax is unconstitutional,” the outlet noted further.
