  • SEILA LAW LLC v. CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU [Scotus Rules the POTUS Can Removed the Director For Any Reason]

    Supreme Court of the United States ^ | June 29, 2020 | Staff
    In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, Congress established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), an independent regulatory agency tasked with ensuring that consumer debt products are safe and transparent. See Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank), 124 Stat. 1376. Congress transferred the administration of 18 existing federal statutes to the CFPB, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Truth in Lending Act; and Congress enacted a new prohibition on unfair and deceptive practices in the consumer-finance sector. 12 U. S. C. §5536(a)(1)(B). In doing so, Congress gave the...

    Senator Ron Johnson Web Page ^ | May 23, 2020 | Ralph Mitchell
    Status of Hydroxychloroquine at Pharmacies for Home use with doctor’s script About 3 weeks ago, Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin wrote the attached letter to President Trump. Sen. Johnson requested a Presidential Executive Order requiring pharmacies to fill a doctor’s prescription for hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for home use. HCQ has been shown to lessen the severity and length of CoVid-19 symptoms. What happens now when someone like you and I or our family members tests positive for CoVid-19? They tell you to stay at home and often you get worse after 4 or 5 days. There is no “Standard of Care”....
  • Group of businesses file suit against Whitmer, challenge executive authority

    **SNIP** The lawsuit challenges Whitmer's executive powers and seeks an immediate injunction. "For the first time in our state's history - indeed, in our nation's history - the state government is mass quarantining healthy people instead of the sick," the lawsuit reads. "As a free people, we have the unalienable right to pursue happiness, which includes the freedom to make our own choices about our safety and welfare without unconstitutional interference. In the face of the coronavirus, it means the freedom to choose whether to stay at home, or to keep calm and carry on with the things that make...

    Hotair ^ | 08/08/2019 | Ed Morrissey
    To paraphrase the earworm theme song from The Lego Movie, everything’s transactional — everything is cool when you’re part of a team. The good news from the latest Pew poll is that skepticism over executive power at the expense of Congress and the judiciary commands majorities overall and in all three political affiliations. The bad news? Republicans are now least likely to worry about it.I wonder why? Currently, 66% of the public says “it would be too risky to give U.S. presidents more power to deal directly with many of the country’s problems.” About three-in-ten adults (29%) offer the...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 30 June 2019 | John Semmens
    Last week the US Supreme Court rendered its decision on whether the US Census takers will be allowed to ask respondents whether they are citizens. Writing for the 5-4 majority, Chief Justice John Roberts explained the Court’s reasoning: “we aren’t saying that the question is illegal or unconstitutional. We we are saying is that we don’t like the question. As this nation’s final arbiters of everything that’s right and good, Steven, Ruth, Elena, Sonya and I can’t see any reason why such a question should be asked.” In a dissenting opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas lambasted the majority’s ruling calling it...

  • Vanity - He/She (POTUS) that controls Judiciary, Executive & Senate, controls the country!!!

    11/09/2018 5:29:56 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 21 replies
    Sorry Democrats....but, in the reality, "Political" world of today, it is not the House Of Representatives that controls the country at all anymore. It is the "He or She" POTUS, that controls the Judiciary, the Executive and the Senate that controls the country, 100%. Thus the "He" is none other then POTUS, Donald J. Trump. POTUS, Trump knew exactly what he was doing when he favored securing the Senate over the House. The Senate controls the Judiciary and, in the world of our politics today, the Judiciary easily outweighs the diminished role of the House. The Democrat Party, "Nutcases" will...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is poised to implement a new regulation without legislative approval to join 10 other states in a climate change agreement based on restricting carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants.But lawmakers, policy analysts, and tea party activists in Virginia who oppose what they consider costly regulations of industry are raising questions about the economic and scientific arguments underpinning the proposed rule.They say the Virginia General Assembly should have a straight up-or-down vote on Northam’s plan, in part to ensure that any revenue the governor raises from “carbon trading” is collected and dispersed in a manner consistent...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/27/2017 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., predicted Wednesday that President Trump would soon move on his own to make health insurance more affordable, after the Senate failed again this week to advance any bill to reform federal healthcare policy. Paul he has been pitching the idea of using the Employee Retirement Income Security Act to let people buy insurance across state lines. That law already allows corporations to buy insurance across state lines for their workers if they are located in several states. Paul's idea is to let individuals form associations and do the same thing, and he said Trump administration officials...

    On Friday, September 15, the Associated Press reported on a fascinating new wrinkle in the centuries-old face of unconstitutional federal activity, and the details might surprise many who are concerned about the sticky issue of “immigration”. According to the report, Federal District Judge Harry Leinenweber just ruled that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department cannot withhold federal “public safety” grants to so-called “Sanctuary Cities” if the politicians in those cities did not conform to federal immigration policies. This, in effect, temporarily removes a powerful tool in the Trump Administration’s work shed as the President attempts to wrangle with...

    American Thinker ^ | July 14, 2017 | Allan J. Favish
    On June 12, 2017, three judges on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that President Donald Trump’s second executive order imposing a temporary ban on “entry” into the United States should be read as if it stated that the ban was on “the issuance of an immigrant visa.” This made it possible for Judges Michael Daly Hawkins, Ronald M. Gould, and Richard A. Paez, all appointed by President Bill Clinton, to hold that the temporary ban was subject to a statutory prohibition on discrimination because of a person’s nationality “in the issuance of an immigrant...

    Don't lose sight of how things work This will probably be one of the most not-read commentaries on this site, because it is not politically sexy or provocative. It’s just a reminder of how our political process works, but too many people seem to go brain dead when patience is required, or get emotionally stressed over the small stuff. We have three co-equal branches of government, the Executive (headed by the president), the Legislative consisting of the House and the Senate, and the Judicial. It’s called a system of checks and balances even if we do not always agree with...
