Ben Sasse Schools Obstructionist Dems on Constitution at Kavanaugh Hearings

We can be reassured to learn these two facts:  There remains a handful of adults in Congress … and not all members of the GOP are RINOs.

During the first day of the confirmation circus hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R) used his 20 minutes at the microphone to remind the so-called progressive members of Congress, and their claque of noisy hired thugs in the gallery, how our Constitution – still the law of the land – establishes the separation of powers and declares that Congress may not delegate legislative authority to independent commissions staffed by unelected bureaucrats.  Note that Sasse correctly pins the origins of this congressional usurpation of power to the regime of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, arguably America’s first socialist president.

This article is by Jame Copland, a senior fellow and director of legal policy at the Manhattan Institute (which, despite its name, is not a leftard think tank).

Ben Sasse’s Master Class  by James Copland, in City Journal, 5 September 2018

Day one of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was largely a farce, but the committee’s youngest member, Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, stepped up as the adult in the room. In the middle of what Sasse accurately labeled a “politicized circus,” he delivered a master class on the proper allocation of authority among the judicial, legislative, and executive branches of the federal government. Sasse’s separation-of-powers roadmap is one that nominee Kavanaugh has followed throughout his 12 years on the federal bench.

At the outset, Democratic senators played the part of resistance warriors and sought to derail the proceedings. Perched at the left flank of the Democrats’ left-side phalanx, the two junior-most of their number—2020 presidential aspirants Cory Booker and Kamala Harris—jostled for camera time, while Republican chairman Chuck Grassley struggled to maintain order. Grassley implausibly claimed that the Democrats had had plenty of time to read 42,000 pages of materials from Kavanaugh’s White House years that had been released some 15 hours earlier. He largely missed the broader point: the objecting senators had announced their opposition to Kavanaugh the moment that he was nominated.

In the gallery, scores of protesters attempted to invoke the heckler’s veto and were promptly escorted out by capitol police. A coterie protesting for abortion rights donned the red habits and bonnets of the oppressed women of the novel-cum-dystopian-television-series The Handmaid’s Tale. The father of a victim of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, accosted Kavanaugh during a recess, before security intervened. Kavanaugh’s former law clerk, Zina Bash, who has been prepping the judge for the hearing, became the subject of a deranged social-media firestorm, when conspiracy-minded leftists argued that she was making surreptitious hand signals to white supremacists.

Amid this chaos, the 46-year-old Sasse, who holds a Ph.D. in American history from Yale, explained the Framers’ view of American government. Sasse argued that judges wear black robes instead of red and blue jerseys—and get life tenure, rather than seeking elected terms of office—because the judicial branch is supposed to leave policymaking to Congress. Sasse invoked the civics of Schoolhouse Rock!, the public-service shorts that aired on Saturday mornings in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. The Schoolhouse Rock short “I’m Just a Bill,” first aired in September 1975, shows a talking piece of legislation explaining to a boy how a bill becomes a law:

I’m just a bill
Yes, I’m only a bill
And if they vote for me on Capitol Hill
Well, then I’m off to the White House
Where I’ll wait in a line
With a lot of other bills
For the president to sign
And if he signs me, then I’ll be a law.
How I hope and pray that he will,
But today I am still just a bill.

These lyrics still explain the legislative process, but as Sasse observed, they’re increasingly irrelevant to how the federal government exerts control. Though the legislative branch “is supposed to be the center of our politics,” it isn’t, because “more and more legislative authority is delegated to the executive branch every year.” Starting in the 1930s and especially since the 1960s, Sasse said, a “self-neutering” Congress ceded much of its authority to “a bunch of alphabet-soup bureaucracies.”

Perhaps as much as any judge sitting on the federal bench, Kavanaugh has stood athwart this congressional abdication of constitutional duty, yelling, “Stop!” The seminal Supreme Court case enabling Congress to transfer its power to alphabet-soup agencies is the New Deal–era decision Humphrey’s Executor v. United States (1935), which upheld the constitutionality of agencies “wholly disconnected from the executive department” that were “created by Congress as a means of carrying into operation legislative and judicial powers.” In a footnote in a dissenting opinion earlier this year, in PHH Corporation v. CFPB, Kavanaugh questioned the foundations of Humphrey’s Executor. He dissented from the D.C. Circuit’s opinion upholding Congress’s decision to vest authority over the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in a single director, unanswerable to the president. Kavanaugh viewed that as a step too far beyond what Humphrey’s Executor allowed.

The litigant in the CFPB case decided not to ask the Supreme Court for review, though similar cases are pending. But in other cases in which Kavanaugh has dissented from his colleagues’ acquiescence to congressional delegations of authority, the high court has agreed with his reasoning. In 2008, in Free Enterprise Fund v. PCAOB, the D.C. Circuit upheld the constitutionality of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board—an independent body appointed by another independent body (the Securities and Exchange Commission). Judge Kavanaugh viewed the twice-independent agency as an unconstitutional extension of Humphrey’s Executor. The Supreme Court agreed, and Chief Justice John Roberts’s opinion favorably cited Kavanaugh’s.

Kavanaugh did not delve much into the substance of these issues in his brief opening statement before the committee on Tuesday. (He instead focused his designed-to-be-inoffensive remarks on his personal story, highlighting his dutiful embrace of his role as husband, son, and father.) But as he had in his speech when the president announced his Supreme Court nomination, Kavanaugh stressed how he teaches his law students “that the Constitution’s separation of powers protects individual liberty.”

Those separation-of-powers concerns explain some of the progressive opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination—an opposition that, as Sasse explained, has been similar for every Republican Supreme Court nomination for the last 31 years. Yes, senators objecting to Kavanaugh’s nomination are indeed worried about how he might rule on hot-button cases that animate their base—among them abortion rights and gun control, the first two issues highlighted by ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein in her opening remarks. But make no mistake: when Sasse decries the delegation of authority to administrative agencies “because people don’t have any way to fire the bureaucrats,” progressives tend to view that as a feature, not a bug.

They’re wrong; and Sasse is right that the current political circus is unhealthy for the republic. The Founders would be unhappily surprised to learn that so many Americans view presidential contests as live-or-die, “Flight 93” elections; or that many voters in those elections are animated principally by prospective Supreme Court nominations, as 21 percent of American voters reported they were in 2016 exit polls.

Sasse, a persistent critic of his own party’s president, is no “drain the swamp” populist. But such populism can be all that’s left for objectors in a political system that leaves most divisive decisions to unelected administrators and judges. Jurists like Kavanaugh—judicially modest, but forcing elected legislators to do the business of legislating—are necessary preconditions for lowering the political heat.

They Don’t Even Bother Hiding It

A Splintered Nation a Broken Church

 

 

Introducing my new book

Book Cover 003

Now I am looking for a good agent who will take it on.

 

Introduction

A Splintered Nation and A Broken Church is a book which will hopefully encourage the reader to get involved in restoring our nation to an independent sovereign Constitutional Republic. You must admit that our nation has been on a very long journey towards its demise, what started out to be a sovereign Constitutional Republic, with the founders being Protestant Christian, putting in place moral values, integrity, a Constitution demanding and guaranteeing freedom, equality, and a limited government for the people and by the people. The book sort of hop-scotches through the research concerning the history of our politics and political corruption, resting at times on some major misconceptions and turning points as corruption consumed the political landscape of our nation.
Do you find yourself wondering how and why we find our nation in the state that that it is? know when it started, know how simple political rivalry turned into political parties, with specific ideological agendas and how those agendas evolved into one global liberal socialist party, or socialism the new face of the Democratic Party. A long progression and evolution since its founder Andrew Jackson. With the election of Lincoln, a former Whig turned Republican to get elected, the Republican Party gained it permanency as most Whigs went Republicans. Nonetheless, both parties are corrupt and the common link of corruption is illicit gain both monetary and political power. The book explores the fullness of intent for their corruption and vile behavior, their vile corrupt conspiracy to control the people.
Control and power have established the Shadow Government that is a huge and grossly oversized bureaucracy of unelected officials, departments and agencies that control the people by regulations, the Shadow Government is protected by corrupt politicians of both parties, primarily the global socialists… the new face of the Democrat Party. President Trump ran with the Ideal of draining the Swamp, thinking it meant both the “Deep State” and corrupt Congress. However, the Swamp is the corrupt Democrats and the RINOs who have moved in the direction of money and political power. The size of our government is a mockery of what the founders envisioned in the Constitution. The book looks at the liberal conspiracy against the Protestant church since the 1960s and why should the liberals with the objective of taking control of the nation and now the ultimate objective of a North American Socialist Union and a powerful part of the Global Socialist Union. Research has revealed problematic conditions existed that could not be ignored but must be eliminated or made of no relevance, and that is where Protestant Christianity comes into the picture. The church is broken into two main theologies, liberal and evangelical or liberal and biblical theologies, regardless, the research reveals the division which liberal theology denies, the truth of the Bible it teaches about sin. The Bible is the basis of our moral values, integrity and the character of our culture is Christianity. However. from the time of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s United Nation’s Charter and the liberal activists of the 1960s exposes the real conspiracy of socialism 2009-16 as it was accelerated by Barack Obama, or Barry whatever the only President in our history who demonized the Bible believing Christians.
The research links politics and the church. It also links the Civil Liberties Act, originated with the Kennedy brothers, then the assassination of John allowed Johnson to implement the Act and take it for his accomplishment and opening the door for minority groups such as the ACLU, LGBT, NAACP, Communist Party of America, and the liberal Press, Nation of Islam, all of which were recruiting people groups for Democrat votes. All a little pushy and all joining in against the church, the Second Amendment, law enforcement, border security, The Boy Scouts, the Military, our Flag and all patriot or Christian expression even Christian cake decorators. However, it was the church and Christian values, ethics, integrity woven into the American Dream. The use of political correctness and the freedom of speech is for liberals only. Black-white-red-yellow-whatever, racism is the biggest tool in the liberal box, intolerance and sexual abuse, (the most hypocritical tools) and further against the church is the favorite of bigotry and a fantasy God and fantasy religion. A lie is now the truth, and vile activity including thuggery violence and breaking the law is only wrong if you are a Christian or conservative.
Things really accelerated since George HW Bush and his push for the socialist union and the UN. There has never been a viler and more lawless as Bill and Hillary Clinton, then George W. with his revenge war on Iraq, when he should have gone to Afghanistan. Obama brought a new attempt to destroy the nation in civil unrest, and violent thuggery. The real eye opener is in research, not what is reported in the “Mainstream News” and liberal social networking. Researching exposes links, and it is up to the researcher to explore those links, see where your candidate stands then vote, and yes, your vote does count. Secondly, by the nature of the beast proper research will give the individual an opinion, and everyone needs a studied opinion to help discern the players and the direction they are headed. I pray the book encourages you to research and be educated enough to protect your mind against the onslaught of evil wrong, against the socialist agenda for your freedom. In this book I hope you find enough material to spark your interest to step back and do your own research. Stand for the truth and don’t compromise on the truth or your faith, even though they call you closed minded, therefore, you won’t be suckered into believing the lies.

“When you reject the truth, you will believe lies.” 

You will become a slave to liberal socialism.

 

Swamp Things and the Shadow Government

Things from the Septic Swamp

By: R.S. Helms 7-21-2018
Trump-And-The-Swamp

In case you haven’t noticed, the socialist liberal Democrats have been unhinged since the 2016 election. However, as the unhinged have become completely psychotic and unattached in their pursuit of voters, even retaining some of their base. Nonetheless, we are watching some of the vilest demonic outpours of septic animalistic behavior and just plain stupidity that can be manufactured.
Putting aside the behavior of the socialists (liberals) and the establishment RINO Republicans of which there are many in our congress and in the Deep State (Shadow Government), of which I would like to take the opportunity (to express my studied opinion), separate the Swamp and Shadow Government.
It is my studied opinion, that due to the sly manipulation of our English language into political correctness, and the need to manufacture words that would reflect something less sinister we find that our leaders have been at it again. When President mentioned draining the Swamp he was talking about the corruption of Washington DC as a whole. It was perhaps the best way to describe the liberal corruption that was made manifest during the Demon-Ratic reign of Obama and his socialist scumbags. Perhaps “Swamp” was the best derogatory he could use for the occasion and still get his meaning across.
Research clearly indicates two separate entities, one is the elected politicians, which would more fittingly be the Swamp, (to be nice as we can), although, there are people in the South who would consider the swamps as being beautiful, and actually they are.

However, it is some of the creatures who live in the swamps that turns it into a vile and septic place which would need draining to simply get rid of the creatures. We once, (not very long ago), called them the boy’s of the Beltway Club or Beltway Boyz, corrupt politicians from both sides of both chambers, and where money is the name of the entertainment, and untold undocumented large sums pass freely from outside hands and lobbyists to the slimy elites of our congress. It is not easy to give up for these creatures of the septic Swamp and their coffers.
Secondly, we have what I call the Shadow Government, coming from the colonies and their forming a shadow government to govern the people when the Crown took over and blocked the Boston Harbor. It is my studied opinion that our over-stuffed bureaucracy which is actually all the Departments and Agencies of the federal government with unelected officials as their heads who have the power of regulation which actually run the government. Over the past several decades that army has been deep rooted into our system. Actually, it is like the colonials forming a government to work in the shadows when the brits were locking up our legal government. Only then the Shadow Government was working for the good of the people.

Over the past several decades our shadow government has established themselves and working for the liberals (socialists) and somewhere along the line the bottom feeders of the swamp became the protectors of the Shadow Government’s high-ranking officials. But I suppose if you would like to call them the Deep State that is fine, except refuse to lump the herds of swine in the same hog wallow.

The Swamp creatures may associate from time to time for the sake of the money, but mostly as they plot what it is they do. Such as with the EPA, Justice Department, State Department, Homeland Security, the NSA and the number of others (all of them) are infected with operatives of the nasty Shadow Government which President Obama built his “civilian army better equipped and bigger that the official Army.” Do you recall when he made that promise? Before his first election, his intent was the implementation of the UN Agenda 21 (sustainable development).

The UN Agenda 21 was designed to start with the smaller rural towns, then counties and urban communities then states, until the nation would have signed away our sovereignty, we would be the meat in the sandwich of the North American Union, and the UN could usurp authority over our Constitution, because of the “treaties” made with the UN.

The motivation behind these bottom feeders, is a hopeful that they will have a position in the “New Government.” Of course, that would mean money, power, and an elite status. Elite status will be the other half of the two classes at that point in time, the elite and the commons, and guess who will make up most of the commons? Yes, the middle and poor will be the commons. Yes that does sound like a communist nation and yes one might say that is the direction of the US will be headed when we are in the middle of a socialist North American Union, and that is no more or no less, than what NAFTA was designed to eventually do.

Some of the ideas of our modern Shadow Government go back to the reign of FDR, and as reflected in his UN Charter. However, over the decades there has not been more than simple steady movement towards socialism, that is until Obama’s administration and for reasons most sinister. Obama was so narcissistic little imp who was either possessed or controlled by one bunch of ugly demons, it is the only logical evaluation of his psychotic nature. He made no bones about his agenda and at any cost he would achieve it.
And Hillary well she worse than Obama and while stumping for her he mentioned that she would continue with his policies and finish the job he had started. He was a busy camper during the latter part of his second term, he loaded the federal courts with judges that are sold out to his ideologies and Soros cash (not sure yet about the cash), but with the deep state solidly in place and his own army it would have been a sure thing for the UN deal. He flooded the nations with Muslim refugees and illegal aliens, then publicly announced that he wanted them to vote, now Jerry Brown is issuing them all voter registration cards. As for New York and California and a couple of others have of course joined the socialists of DC. They only show what socialism does. Socialism cannot coexist with our Constitution, it has been proven.
I will drop my new political correctness bomb: Democrat was, Liberals was, Socialists are now. So, we will call them for what they are … Socialist, just like the UN is Socialist, the EU (European Socialist Union), NAFTA is the forerunner and foundation of the North American Socialist Union, the UN become the Global Socialist Union which is to become the One World Order. I have my opinion and that is about all I have, except a lot of research, connecting the dots, and a God given gift. Guess one might say something about conspiracy theory, or anyway the socialist News and puppets would call it.
You see and hope that you understand, coming from the Socialist and RINOs … they say something first and manufacture spin and outright lies in order to silence or demonize the opposition, problem is the opposition don’t push back. It is starting to show, in Christianity liberalism has nearly destroyed the church and solid biblical systematic theology, or what is called evangelical theology, (any more I am really not sure what to call true Christian theology), liberalism is attempting to paint biblical theology as hog-wash, well there is not room enough in this blog to tell all that there is about liberal theology, except, it is covered in my book, Splintered Nation and a Broken Church, and in my studied opinion that liberal and liberation should not be called Christian, but I will let God sort that out, which he will and meanwhile I will be praying for their members, because God will sort it out.
I will be trusting President Trump to deal with the Shadow Government and the Swamp will only be taken care by honest elections. With the bottom feeders of the Swamp, they are exposing themselves in the droves, and Trump won’t have much trouble with the Shadow Government, seems like Mueller is doing an outstanding job of exposing them.
Mueller, according to some sources has made the case that his appointment was not constitutional and being appointed by the Deputy Attorney General (Rosenstein) who was by law, to supervise the investigation, as Rosenstein had the power and unconstitutionally delegated untethered powers without proper supervision. Comey, the NSA, Rosenstein, and Muller’s FBI squad of political hacks have overstepped their constitutional limitations, their investigation was for the “collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian President. However, they were to find and destroy any evidence of involvement and any connections of Hillary and Obama. That backfired badly, in as much as they went too far abroad in a collusion investigation and used unconstitutional powers which only exposed the Hillary-Obama collusion to steal the election and when that didn’t work to try to unseat him.

After nearly two years the circus should be over, but it is still chugging along without any credibility. My Question is why has the President not fired Rosenstein? I could understand, early on it would have been an obstruction of justice battle, however, after an IG and Congress investigation failed to produce any evidence, then there would be no obstruction … it is all about the mid-terms and for the socialists it has turned out to be disastrous to say the least.
This latest manufactured outrage from the socialists and the socialist press over the Putin-Trump summit is truly a show and tell of how vile these people can be. Therefore, I will leave this studied opinion with you, hopefully you will step back look, read, listen and simply do some homework and form your own opinion.

That is why this is called Bob’s Opinion.

Shareholders Rake Anti-Gun Dick’s CEO Over Coals During Public Shareholders Meeting

Now, Dick’s Sporting Goods is hearing from its stockholders.

Since the company reacted to the February massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by betraying its customers who support the Second Amendment, Dick’s has been hit by the gun industry, from street-level stores to corporate decision-makers.

But at a shareholders meeting on Wednesday, Dick’s heard from people with skin in the game.

In a direct attack on Dick’s CEO Edward Stack and other members of the company’s board, shareholder David Almasi, vice president of the National Center for Public Policy Research, raked the company’s leadership over the coals.

To the company’s top officers, Almasi charged, “virtue signaling” was more important than the company’s sales.

After the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Dick’s announced it would no longer sell AR-15s (the “assault weapon” liberals hate the most these days) and would restrict firearms sales to those 21 years of age or older.

Those might be considered defensible business decisions, perhaps with worries about liabilities in mind, but Dick’s directors went even further, hiring an anti-gun Washington lobbying firm to actively work against Second Amendment freedoms in the nation’s capital.

Almasi cited that decision in particular in his attack.

Listen to the whole thing here:

After the Parkland shooting, Almasi said, “Dick’s Sporting Goods immediately engaged in corporate virtue signaling, by ending the sale of AR-15s, high-capacity magazines and other accessories. Dick’s also no longer sells guns to people until three years after they’re eligible for military service.

“In addition, Dick’s reportedly hired lobbyists to promote gun restrictions, even though you’re literally in the business of selling guns …

“The company is willfully giving up money. It’s damaged its reputation by lending its voice and its resources to those who want to abolish the Second Amendment, even while the vast majority of … citizens support the amendment,” Almasi said.

“Thirty percent of Americans own guns and another 11 percent live with someone who does. Now you’ve alienated them.”

Will Dick’s regret its anti-gun positions?

YesNo

According to Fox Business Network, Dick’s has made up for its losses in firearms-related sales in other areas and the stock has risen by 13 percent over the past month.

Liberals like the crew at ThinkProgress are crowing that that proves the Dick’s critics are wrong, but it could well be a short-term effect from the political moment. Dick’s got a lot of headlines out of its anti-gun stance, and liberals could well have decided to patronize the stories because of the publicity.

In the long-term, though, Dick’s has a vested interest in pleasing its outdoors customer base, and its anti-gun decision was a flagrant snub to millions of Americans who could well have been spending their money at Dick’s instead of at a competitor. And shareholders don’t like having company executives who are “willfully giving up money.”

It’s likely not the last time Dick’s shareholders rake the company execs over the coals.
