While professing to be a small government conservative, Somin took pen in hand to write a missive in the Washington Post that called for giving federal bureaucrats more control.
Granted, that feeds the target audience of a newspaper in a city where everyone feeds on more bureaucratic control. Nothing raises money faster for the Faux Conservatives in that town than a crazy agency rule. Those we-must-act-now-to-stop-it emails raise tons of money.
The public, tired of this nonsense, sent President Trump to Washington to drain the swamp and put the electorate back in charge.
Somin wants Congress to cut President Trump off at the pass.
But unless and until we can substantially reduce the overall extent of executive power, Congress should have the option of at least partially insulating many executive branch agencies from complete presidential control. Before we can restore the unitariness of the executive, we should first cut back some of its substantive powers.Insulate the bureaucracy?
Is he mad?
Why not just join the EU and have Brussels pass our laws?
Americans need to control the bureaucracy. Fire the creeps that push "climate change" baloney - especially the ones who fudge and forge data to "prove" this inane hypothesis.
The problem with the federal government is that no one is in charge. Presidents do not have enough control over the agencies. Sweetheart union deals make it impossible to hold accountable the porn-watching cheats and imbeciles on the payroll.
Sue-and-settle lawsuits by lobbyists with friends in various agencies (particularly the EPA) give regulations more protection than laws passed by Congress.
We must end policy made by bureaucrats.
No more congressional deference to the bureaucracy to "promulgate" rules to carry out their wishes.
Washington is a madhouse. We need sane businessmen to run these agencies until they are fixed.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.
