Confirm Kavanaugh and Free the Nation of an Out-of-Control Regulatory State

By Adam Brandon via The Hill

The Senate this week began hearings for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is the right choice for the Supreme Court because he will bring an end to the nearly endless list of federal regulations, many of which were unilaterally imposed by the Obama administration. If stacked one on top of another, all the pages of regulations handed down by the federal bureaucracy would slightly dwarf the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. Much like that tower, these stifling regulations have caused uncertainty and instability here at home.

While the Trump administration has made great headway in repealing unnecessary regulations, there is still much to be done. As a Supreme Court justice, Kavanaugh would surely defend the original meaning of the Constitution by limiting the ability of unelected federal regulators to meddle in the affairs of private enterprise. Having a justice like this on the Supreme Court for a lifetime appointment could mean his nomination is the silver bullet in the heart of an overreaching government.

His past writings inspire nothing but confidence in his ability to be this solution. In the Harvard Law Review, Kavanaugh eviscerated the judicial precedent handed down in Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council, which states that federal judges must defer to the judgment of federal agencies when it comes to reviewing their actions. Kavanaugh called this practice, commonly known as Chevron deference, an “atextual invention by courts” and “nothing more than a judicially orchestrated shift of power from Congress to the executive branch.”


GOP Have Only Themselves to Blame, Not Trump, for Tough Midterms Ahead

By Ken Cuccinelli via Washington Examiner

If recent polls are correct, and Democrats take control of the House of Representatives, the hard truth is it would be the Republicans’ own fault. Unlike President Trump, who has fought tooth and nail to fulfill promises he made on the campaign trail working to create jobs, cut burdensome regulations, and lower taxes, GOP leaders in Congress have completely failed to do what they said they would do.

As candidates begging to be re-elected they campaigned as conservatives, yet after winning, they went back to their old ways and legislated as liberals. The grass roots were told that once Republicans controlled the House, then it was the Senate, and most recently the White House; it was only then that they would be able to enact real conservative policies.

Well, that has happened, and voters are still waiting. Washington needs leaders who honor their oath to support and defend the Constitution and who will not hand our country over to the liberals who will immediately enact terrible policies and destroy our freedoms. It’s time for leaders in Washington to keep their promises and fulfill their commitments to taxpayers. Leaders like Jim Jordan.

Kavanaugh Hearings Prove Democrats Are Unfit to Govern

Via The Hill

Democrats like to pillory President Trump for destroying American institutions and breaking the norms of conduct. Yet, during the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats blatantly and flippantly violated Senate norms, rules and traditions — and inflicted in the process considerable damage on the institution.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) interrupted the very first sentence of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa) opening statement. Protesters constantly interrupted questions asked by senators of both parties, as well as Kavanaugh’s answers; they were challenged only by Republican senators. But even in this chaotic atmosphere, Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) decision to violate the committee’s confidentiality agreement with the executive branch, pursuant to which the committee received documents that otherwise would have been withheld, was particularly egregious.

On Wednesday night, Booker asked Kavanaugh about an email exchange dating to the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks. He quoted a committee confidential document — that is, a document that no senator had the authority to make public, and which Kavanaugh did not have in front of him.


Radical Leftist Cynthia Nixon's Solution to Funding Socialized Health Care? Figure It Out Later.

Via The Daily Caller

Democratic New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon hasn’t come up with a plan to fund her campaign promise of health care for all, but she made it known on Wednesday that it is not a deciding factor on whether or not to enact the measure.

“Pass it and then figure out how to fund it,” Nixon told The New York Daily News, when asked how to pay for the New York Health Act (NYHA).

The NYHA would institute a statewide universal health care system that could cover all New York state residents, including illegal aliens. While Nixon did not explicitly suggest how to pay for the costly program, she cited a RAND Corporation report that outlined raising various state taxes. A study by the RAND Corporation estimated that tax revenue would need to increase over 150 percent by 2022 in order finance the system.

An 8-year Success Story of Conservative Justice Reform in Georgia

Via Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

As Georgia begins the final stretch to find a new occupant of the Governor’s Mansion, a look back at the accomplishments of its current occupant is in order. Perhaps none have been as transformational if not also a bit surprising as Gov. Nathan Deal’s commitment to criminal justice reform.

For decades under both parties, politicians in Georgia couldn’t go wrong running on a “tough on crime” platform. Crime rates fell, but prison population swelled. A lack of effective rehabilitation programs combined with few opportunities for individuals exiting prison created high recidivism rates. Mistakes made during youth often meant a virtual life sentence, broken up into a pattern of increasing severity of charges and longer periods of incarceration.

And yet, before he was a governor or congressman, Nathan Deal was a prosecutor, a Juvenile Court judge, and a Superior Court judge. He understands this system. As governor, he was in a position to make changes. Eight years later, using more scalpel than chain saw, Georgia’s system is reformed, and the results can be measured. Are the results “soft on crime?” The numbers say no. The focus has been differentiating from minor crimes combined with alternative sentencing, combined with focused efforts on rehabilitation and re-entry. Violent crime remains violent crime.


Rand Paul, Other Senators Demand Federal Agencies Curb Year-End "Use-It-or-Lose-It" Spending Binges

Via Federal Times

As the federal agencies are expected to spend the remainder of their budgets before the end of the fiscal year Sept. 30, a bipartisan quartet of senators is urging federal agencies to explain how they will avoid waste and abuse.

Federal agencies reportedly spent more than $11 billion in the final week of fiscal year 2017, and a reported eight of the top ten highest-spending federal agencies have not used as much as 40 percent of their budgets, the lawmakers wrote to the chief financial officers of 13 federal agencies.

“Historically, federal agencies increase spending during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year. Although not a new phenomenon, use it or lose it spending can lead to waste and abuse of taxpayer dollars,” they said in the letter Wednesday to Pentagon Comptroller David Norquist. The letter requested a staff-level briefing.
