How to Stop the Administrative State
American Greatness, by Tom Doniphon

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/14/2018 6:00:59 AM

Please check out Mark Pulliam’s review of Peter Wallison’s forthcoming short book, Judicial Fortitude: The Last Chance to Rein in the Administrative State. Wallison, who served in two posts during the Reagan administration and is now ensconced at the American Enterprise Institute, takes aim at the governing apparatus in modern America: the administrative state. Functioning as a rogue fourth branch of government that combines legislation, executive, and judicial powers all into one anarchical mass, the administrative state is the chief enemy of republican government today.

Here´s an idea, 10 years of civil service, then banned from taking a government paycheck, unless elected, then term limits there too.

I´m working with a couple who both are civil servants who plan on working 20, then retiring with full benefits, and contracting back to the same group...

What we need is a Law...stick with me on this...That Law would force all regulations and policy decisions of any agency of the govt. to stand for a vote in Congress, 60% to pass, and have POTUS signature.

That way no govt. agency can put their BS policies into law without a vote. The way it is now the bureaucracies just do whatever their political whims and masters tell them to do. Look at what Obozo did in his 8 years...

Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann told the judge that Manafort´s deal includes a cooperation agreement with prosecutors, who are investigating whether any Trump associates played a role in Russia´s meddling in the 2016 election. That could include interviews with prosecutors and testifying in court. A defense attorney for Manafort told Fox News the deal includes "full cooperation."

Hurricane Florence is gathering strength as it approaches the Carolinas but not everyone is praying that it dissipates. For Al Gore, Alec Baldwin, Jane Goodall, Catherine McKenna, Dave Matthews, John Kerry, Tom Steyer and all the other celebrity alarmists attending the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco over the next couple of days, this hurricane is like manna from heaven: the worse it gets, the better it is for their scaremongering cause.

The FBI will not be investigating Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) last-second attempt to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. After countless hours of hearings, a number of in-depth background checks, thousands of questions asked and answered, and numerous one-on-one meetings with senators of both parties, at the very last second Feinstein dramatically released a letter (she has reportedly had in her possession for months) to the FBI.(Snip) According to the far-left Washington Post, however, the FBI is not interested and will not be investigating the matter.

The conservative beltway publication National Review published a piece in which their legal columnist argues that “constitutional originalism requires” that United States citizenship be given to the children of illegal aliens. Dan McLaughlin of National Review — which infamously launched a campaign against President Trump during the 2016 presidential election — published the piece, titled “Constitutional Originalism Requires Birthright Citizenship,” which claims that the U.S. Constitution does provide birthright citizenship for the children of illegal aliens.

Democrats and the media have been pounding President Donald Trump over the past few days, as Hurricane Florence nears the Carolinas, over his alleged insensitivity to deaths in Puerto Rico last year from Hurricane Maria. On Thursday morning, President Trump pushed back on Twitter, alleging that Democrats had inflated the death toll “in order to make me look as bad as possible.” That led to more criticism, with the Associated Press accusing Trump of making claims “without evidence.” But Trump is correct.

NEW YORK — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo easily beat back a primary challenge from activist and actress Cynthia Nixon on Thursday, thwarting her attempt to become the latest insurgent liberal to knock off an establishment Democrat. Cuomo, who always led in the polls and outspent his rival more than 8 to 1, seldom mentioned Nixon by name during an often-nasty campaign, instead touting his experience, achievements in two terms as governor and his work to push back against President Donald Trump. In his moment of victory, Cuomo was oddly silent,

Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, has reached a deal with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to avert a second trial on federal charges stemming from his lucrative work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine, according to a person familiar with the matter who was not authorized to speak on the record. Prosecutors with Mueller’s office filed new criminal charges Friday in the case. The charges, which replace the existing indictment of Manafort, were done as a “criminal information,” a legal document that can only be filed with the defendant’s consent.

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday she has asked federal investigators to probe a secret complaint about President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, raising yet another potential hurdle to his confirmation. Sen. Dianne Feinstein did not divulge details, saying only that the information about Judge Brett Kavanaugh came from an individual who wants to remain anonymous. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities,” Ms. Feinstein said in a statement Thursday.

The almost unnoticed fact in the latest Democratic assault on the Trump administration is that it is based entirely on charges of confusion, the circus, incoherence, and nastiness. These themes never have to be hammered very long before the faithful take up the incantation about impeachment, but these aren’t impeachable, even if the charges were true.

The federal government, U.S. Supreme Court, and lawyers across the country use the word “illegal alien” to describe immigrants who illegally enter the country, because that’s the definition in the law. But Twitter makes its own laws, and the social media giant is now blocking folks from promoting any messages with the phrase, which its moderators apparently consider “hate speech.” Twitter rejected a total of four ads from the Center but provided only vague reasoning for the decision.
