Default Levin: ‘Where’s this massive bureaucracy in the Constitution?’

Levin: ‘Where’s this massive bureaucracy in the Constitution?’



Carmel Kookogey · March 15, 2019

Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took issue with the 12 Republican senators who voted earlier Thursday with Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and against President Trump’s constitutional use of the National Emergencies Act to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

Many Republicans have claimed they disagree with the use of the National Emergencies Act because of its potential to violate the separation of powers, but Levin explained why Trump’s use of the act is more than appropriate.

“This isn’t a separation of powers issue. If it’s a separation of powers issue, then every single department and agency in the federal government unrelated to defense and national security should be shut down. What’s the constitutional authority for the Department of Education? What’s the constitutional authority for Congress delegating its lawmaking powers to one bureaucracy after another? What’s the constitutional authority for Social Security and Medicare? What’s the constitutional authority for any of this stuff?” Levin said.

“There are aspects of this law, when I read it to you early on, that are very troubling to me. … But we actually have a president of the United States, despite what the media says, who’s very carefully complying with the Constitution and who chooses not to use extreme measures. He did everything he could to avoid the National Emergencies Act. … He could’ve bypassed Congress altogether, according to Congress.”

Listen:



“You have individuals on this list who vote day in and day out to violate the Constitution for sugar subsidies, for mushroom subsidies, for all kinds of subsidies. Where’s that in the Constitution? You have people on this list who vote every day to fund this massive bureaucracy. Where’s this massive bureaucracy in the Constitution, if you want to get right to the nub of the matter?” Levin said.

And he forgets when he was a NeverTrumper in that team’s dugout

But good point regardless

The Constitution fell short in foreseeing this, and the amendment process s well, as the concept was to turn over high office often. What happened instead was the bureaucracy itself continues the establishment as career officials who hire and promote their own, and congresspersons who are reelected to keep it that way.

Hell, so was I when there were 18 candidates.

TOPIC - Levin is just telling it like it is.

We all make mistakes and to Levin's credit, he has admitted he was wrong about Trump and he made a huge mistake in believing the negative hype initially. His focus now is highlighting the hypocrisy of the left and how they and their consortium of power mongers are trying to ignore and override our Constitution and Bill of Rights. The more he looks into this condition, the more evidence he finds of just how corrupt the government has become and how the processes was accelerated to new extremes, under the previous administration.

1776 rural America -industrial revolution-2019 America.....Why we've had to add amendments
Constitution didn't say a word about a corporation being treated as a "person"
bureaucracies were created by Congre$$-they ARE the LEGISLATIVE BRANCH...fortunately the Supreme Court
the other Branch can decide if they are exceeding/violating the mandate...and Congress is supposed to oversee them

A bureaucracy who says legal fiction is a person and a newly conceived human is not.

Edit to add: you ever notice what was once the united states for America was usurped by all caps (indicating a corporation) UNITED STATES without war?

Consider the Enclave Clause limiting it to 10 square miles and use of some state land by permission of the state for forts and needful buildings.
