Deconstructing the administrative state

Share

By Peter Hong at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

What do you picture when you hear the phrase “administrative state?”

Do you think about the lexicon of federal agencies with acronyms that have come to dominate our everyday lives: IRS, EPA, OSHA, TSA? Envision sterile federal buildings populated by unelected bureaucrats rewriting laws to expand the scope of government overreach? Foresee a dystopian universe where administrative bodies supplant the constitutional system of checks and balances by simultaneously playing lawmaker, administrator, judge, and enforcement officer?

The bad news is you’re not far from the truth. Worse, for nearly a century, the administrative state has grown exponentially, taken root in our system of governance, and extended its tentacles over every aspect of

Axing Wasteful EPA Program that Gave leftist Groups Millions “Racist”

Share

From Judicial Watch

The Trump administration is being accused of racism for cutting a wasteful program that’s given leftist groups tens of millions of dollars to help poor, minority and indigenous communities attain “environmental justice.” The initiative was launched under Barack Obama’s first Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief, Lisa Jackson, to help low-income populations obtain the same degree of protection from health and environmental hazards as wealthy communities. Over the years, heaps of taxpayer dollars have filled the coffers of leftwing groups—including some dedicated to helping illegal immigrants—that teach black, Latino and indigenous folks how to recycle, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization” and participate in “green jobs.”

The cash flowed freely through the EPA’s special environmental justice office, which the

The Trump rally could be for real

Share

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

The S&P 500 is up 9.5 percent since Nov. 9, 2016, a big jump for global stocks and asset prices that has already been touted the Trump rally, but is it for real?

So early into President Donald Trump’s first year in office, naturally, it is impossible to say.

The real rubber will meet the road when it comes to three key factors: Jobs, labor participation and economic growth. Those will determine if we are just in another speculative bubble, or if we truly are about to enter a genuine economic boom.

In past boom economies, the U.S. labor force was expanding rapidly, millions of jobs were being created and

Bills Proposed To Strike Unnecessary Pennsylvania Instant Check System

Share

From The Lehigh Valley Project 9/12 Tea Party–Second Amendment Committee

Two important bills, House Bill 763 and Senate Bill 224, were recently introduced in the Pennsylvania General Assembly, according to a report on www.nraila.org. Sponsored by state Representative Jason Ortitay (R-46) and state Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46), these bills would eliminate the current Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) as well as the current handgun record of sale, and replace them with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which is administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Under the NICS system, licensed dealers contact the FBI, via a toll-free telephone number, to run a check of computerized criminal history and mental health records at the point of sale for

Barletta Cannot Support American Health Care Act in Current Form

Concerned with Health Care Tax Credits to Illegal Immigrants

WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) today released the following statement in regard to the American Health Care Act:

“Obamacare is destroying our health care system. The monstrosity of a health care law failed the American people by throwing them off their preferred plans, eliminating access to their favorite doctors, and sending premiums and deductibles through the roof. In fact, the average premium in Pennsylvania increased by 32 percent this year, and in some corners premiums rose as much as 53 percent. That level of cost increase is unsustainable.

Leftists go apoplectic over about 1% of the federal budget.

By Michael Swartz · at The Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/48045

Beltway bureaucrats can’t say they weren’t warned about the number of cars that would be uncoupled from their taxpayer-funded gravy train. As President Donald Trump alluded to in his campaign and promised prior to his address to a joint session of Congress, there are a number of federal agencies that will be subjected to large-scale cuts and 19 that will be shuttered entirely if Trump has his way with the budget.
