The President has declared his National Emergency. The Speaker of the House has announced her intentions and things she is “considering” in response.
There are plenty of “i’s” to dot and “t’s” yet to be crossed. We already know that the Democrat’s in Congress will Judge shop to find an agreeable Bench to issue an injunction and declare that the President’s declaration is invalid. There remain arguments as to whether or not such a declaration can even be used in the manner proposed.
Some very intelligent and knowledgeable people whom I hold in high regard have said that it is not. Others have said that it is not only legal but exactly what Congress intended when they wrote the laws in question.
So let us presume that it is legal and Constitutional. Just a presumption, not an established absolute… what happens not next, but long term? If we presume that the Courts do or do not shoot the legal challenge down, with what kind country are we left?
There are possibilities here which could be restorative to liberty, but I doubt that any of the so-called “Leaders” involved have any clue about those possibilities. And so we watch the drama play out on our televisions and wonder whether or not any of this will make any difference?
After the regular show today, Dave talks about some personal stuff that will be impacting the show over the next few weeks…
The City of Los Angeles passed an ordinance that requires all contractors to “disclose” all of their contacts and sponsorships (whatever that means) with the National Rifle Association. In Delaware, a man wants to apply to be a Judge on the State Bench. But, Delaware has a law that says that he is not qualified to be a Judge. Why not? Because he chooses to not associate with certain “approved” groups.
At the end of the day, the real question is why do governments continue to pass laws that they KNOW are not Constitutional. These Governments pay (with tax dollars) for legal advice, so it’s not at all possible that they don’t know this.
But even were we to be charitable and assume (yes, I know what it means) that they don’t know, why do they keep proposing and passing laws that restrict liberty?
