Glenn Reynolds: Blow up the administrative state

Constitutional convention could wrest power from political class and return it to states and people.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wants to amend the Constitution. His proposed changes:

Prohibit Congress from regulating activity that occurs wholly within one state.
Require Congress to balance its budget.
Prohibit administrative agencies — and the un-elected bureaucrats that staff them — from creating federal law.
Prohibit administrative agencies — and the un-elected bureaucrats that staff them — from preempting state law.
Allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
Require a seven-justice super-majority vote for U.S. Supreme Court decisions that invalidate a democratically enacted law.
Restore the balance of power between the federal and state governments by limiting the former to the powers expressly delegated to it in the Constitution.
Give state officials the power to sue in federal court when federal officials overstep their bounds.
Allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override a federal law or regulation.

This proposal has shocked some people. Writing in The Washington Post, Catherine Rampell — apparently unaware that the Constitution itself provides for amendments — is appalled, saying that Abbot wants to ”blow … up” the Constitution. According to Rampell’s analysis, if you love the Constitution, you can’t simultaneously want to change it.

Pat Caddell: Country Closer to Revolution Than Ever

Veteran pollster Pat Caddell says he agrees with the premise that America today is closer to another revolution than at any time in recent history, adding, “The strength of this country comes from its people and it has a political system that is run, now, to the exclusion of its people … you have three quarters of the American people saying the government in Washington does not rule with the consent of the governed.”

Caddell told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon that the current $1.1 trillion 2,000-plus page omnibus bill is “the greatest disaster anyone ever saw because of the deals being cut.”

Caddell cited elements of the bill that are still being discovered, such as the upping of the number of foreign visas. Caddell was referring to a provision that was outrageously “slipped into the bill” without the knowledge of many lawmakers.

The provision could more than triple the number of H-2B visas for foreign workers seeking jobs at hotels, theme parks, ski resorts, golf courses, landscaping businesses, restaurants and bars. The move is intended to boost the supply of non-agricultural seasonal workers.

The $1.1 trillion omnibus funding bill includes language that would dramatically increase the number of visas available for foreign workers, setting off alarm bells among conservatives and labor unions.

‘The Attacks Will Be Spectacular’

An exclusive look at how the Bush administration ignored this warning from the CIA months before 9/11, along with others that were far more detailed than previously revealed.

“Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” The CIA’s famous Presidential Daily Brief, presented to George W. Bush on August 6, 2001, has always been Exhibit A in the case that his administration shrugged off warnings of an Al Qaeda attack. But months earlier, starting in the spring of 2001, the CIA repeatedly and urgently began to warn the White House that an attack was coming.

By May of 2001, says Cofer Black, then chief of the CIA’s counterterrorism center, “it was very evident that we were going to be struck, we were gonna be struck hard and lots of Americans were going to die.” “There were real plots being manifested,” Cofer’s former boss, George Tenet, told me in his first interview in eight years. “The world felt like it was on the edge of eruption. In this time period of June and July, the threat continues to rise. Terrorists were disappearing [as if in hiding, in preparation for an attack]. Camps were closing. Threat reportings on the rise.” The crisis came to a head on July 10. The critical meeting that took place that day was first reported by Bob Woodward in 2006. Tenet also wrote about it in general terms in his 2007 memoir At the Center of the Storm.

Pro-Trump Focus Group Make Frank Luntz’s Legs Wobble

“Luntz concluded that, Trump is punishment to a Republican elite that wasn’t listening to their grassroots.’”

After overseeing a focus group of 29 fervent Donald Trump supporters, Republican pollster and consultant Frank Luntz told a group of reporters that, “My legs are shaking.”

Although the Middle East is in chaos, our Southern border is in chaos, and our inner-cities are in chaos; although we are entering our seventh year of economic malaise as the national debt tops $18 trillion, the so-called Smart People in politics and media still can’t quite figure out why a wildly successful businessman promising change and to stick it to these same Smart People, is so danged popular.

Maybe the focus group — made up of 23 whites, 3 blacks and 3 Hispanics — woke some of them up:

“When Trump talks, it may not be presented in a pristine, PC way, but we’ve been having that crap pushed to us for the past 40 years!” said another man. “He’s saying what needs to be said.” …

“I used to sleep on my front porch with the door wide open, and now everyone has deadbolts,” one man said. “I believe the best days of the country are behind us.”

Uprising Against Autocrats Sweeps Latin America

While ?#?Obama? was busy coddling the brutal communist dictatorship enslaving Cuba, Latin Americans from Ecuador and Brazil to Venezuela, Cuba, and beyond were busy trying to throw off the chains being imposed on them by their ?#?governments?.

In Ecuador, massive protests against the regime of socialist strongman Rafael Correa exploded into violence amid a nationwide uprising against Correa’s bid to stay in power indefinitely and make himself a “dictator.” Brazilians in more than 200 cities gathered by the tens and hundreds of thousands to demand the impeachment of Marxist-Leninist President Dilma Rousseff’s regime, which barely held on to power amid an avalanche of scandals and what multiple analysts said was a rigged election. And this may be just the start.

Unrest against the rapid and dangerous resurgence of communism across Latin America has been growing steadily stronger for years — but so have the region’s socialist and communist autocrats. As The New American has been reporting for a decade or more, a tight-knit network of communist and socialist parties, brutal dictators, Marxist narco-terrorists such as the FARC in Colombia, and other totalitarian forces have been leading what much of the establishment has tried to downplay as a mere “pink tide.” In reality, the totalitarian network, known as the Foro de São Paulo (FSP, or São Paulo Forum in English), has been responsible for what could more properly be characterized as a red tsunami.

Putin in film on Crimea: US masterminds behind Ukraine coup, helped train radicals

The Crimean people voted in a referendum to join Russia after rejecting a coup-imposed government that took power in Kiev in February 2014. The move sparked a major international controversy, as the new government’s foreign backers accused Russia of annexing the peninsula through military force.

The Ukrainian armed coup was organized from Washington, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated in an interview for a new documentary aired Sunday. The Americans tried to hide behind the Europeans, but Moscow saw through the trick, he added.

“The trick of the situation was that outwardly the [Ukrainian] opposition was supported mostly by the Europeans. But we knew for sure that the real masterminds were our American friends,”Putin said in a documentary, ‘Crimea – The Way Home,’ aired by Rossiya 1 news channel.

“They helped training the nationalists, their armed groups, in Western Ukraine, in Poland and to some extent in Lithuania,” he added. “They facilitated the armed coup.”

The West spared no effort to prevent Crimea’s reunification with Russia, “by any means, in any format and under any scheme,” he noted.

Putin said this approach was far from being the best dealing with any country, and a post-Soviet country like Ukraine specifically. Such countries have a short record of living under a new political system and remain fragile. Violating constitutional order in such a country inevitably deal a lot of damage to its statehood, the president said.

Rand Paul: ‘Chamber of Commerce Republican’ Can’t Win White House

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said a stale and moderate establishment Republican preferred by the Chamber of Commerce cannot win the White House in 2016.

Chamber of Commerce is fine, I was a member of the Chamber of Commerce, but a Chamber of Commerce Republican is not going to win a national election,” Paul said on Saturday, according to Politico. “I’m not saying we give up on what we believe in, but we have to expand what we believe in.”

Paul, a potential 2016 presidential contender who has indicated even Kentucky law may not prevent him from simultaneously running for the White House and re-election to the Senate, told the Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas that it was time for a “liberty moment” because “no longer something that scares people. It’s what [makes] people say, we can’t run the same-old same-old, we’re not going to win with the same-old, same-old.”

The Chamber of Commerce has vowed to spend millions against conservative candidates in GOP primaries and to push comprehensive amnesty legislation. They have been criticized for favoring timid candidates like Mitt Romney who favor “pastel” policies over “bold” Reaganesque solutions.

“California is where the 2nd Revolution will start!” by Ann-Marie Murell (Video)

Folks, THIS is what a “politician” should be–getting out on the streets with the people, listening, fighting for our rights. Once elected, few get much further than their cushy offices. As a Militia Man, Tim Donnelly gathered a group of people and went to the Mexican border and tried to build their own fence, prompting the Daily Show to do a show all about it. Now as a California Assemblyman, Donnelly is openly debating each and every bill that reaches his desk (much to the dismay of his fellow politicians). Be inspired by Tim Donnelly, who gives REAL HOPE to California.
