Last week while he sat in for Glenn Beck, Judge Andrew Napolitano had many teriffic segments. These two bits are my favorite. Nobody can describe the Constitution like the Judge. These two gems are for time immemorial.
Freedom must be preserved at all costs. But we must first admit that freedoms are being stripped from us on a daily basis.
Last week as Judge Napolitano sat in for Glenn Beck, the Judge discussed the constitutionality of some parts of the healthcare reform bill that recently passed. Especially of note is the individual mandate that every American citizen, by the very nature of their existence, will now be required to purchase a good that must be approved by the federal government.
I, like the Judge, am not amused. We must all stand and fight this monstrosity.
Today Rick Folbaum, sitting in for Shepard Smith on Studio B, had Judge Andrew Napolitano on to discuss the constitutionality of the Obama administration’s appoinment of the 30+ czars to date. This was in light of former Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, who resigned at 12:01 AM on Sunday this past Labor Day weekend.
The more the administration tries to explain things, the more questions are brought to bear: Are the Czars vetted? Does the FBI do background checks? How much money do they make? What kind of power do they have in decision-making in the Obama Administration? Who funds them? Who appoints them? What is their experience, and who vouches for their character? How much experience, and better yet, what KIND of experience do they bring to the job? What Cabinet-level positions do they supercede in making decision for the Executive Branch?
So, so many questions, yet so few answers. And Van Jones is only the beginning. It’s not Van Jones; it’s the entire administration’s unflinching appointment of unaccountable people to positions of power within the White House about which we, as a representative Republic, REQUIRE answers!
