US Supreme Court
As we are on the road from Florida to Michigan today for the Allegan County Election Day 2020 “trespass” case, we had several internet connection and other issues that had us starting later than normal for RFW and gave us poor connection quality. When we finally got to a stable internet connection, the laptop started malfunctioning. 🤦This week, we were going to discuss the 6/30/22 SCOTUS decision from re Administrative Agencies, and a great article from the Epoch Times discussing the topic. However, after several failed attempts to “go live” with today’s episode of
Restore Freedom Weekly, I am encouraging you to read the Court’s own summary of the full opinion (“Syllabus” on pgs 1-6) as well as the article, both of which I shared as PDFs in the description of this week’s video attempts.
Overall, this EPA case ruling was a step in the right direction, reining in some of that administrative power. However, the majority opinion, and even Justice Gorsuch’s “conservative” concurrence, completely missed the mark about constitutional law regarding administrative agencies: There’s NO need for dozens of pages of legal analysis – Administrative Agencies are 100% UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Even Gorsuch claims “we all agree that administrative agencies have important roles to play in a modern nation.” Well, We The People do NOT agree! And the reasons are many: separation of powers, non-delegation, and the guarantee for a Republican Form of government, etc.
Bottom line: the Constitution does not expressly create any administrative agencies, does not allow one of the three branches of government to do so, nor does it provide any powers allowed to be exercised by such agencies.
CDC, NIH, DOL, DOE, DOT, HHS, DHS, FTC, SEC, EPA – are these Administrative Agencies constitutional? What the Constitution says about *ALL* administrative agencies, administrative rules, etc…. What the newest SCOTUS decision says about the EPA & Administrative Agencies…. A great article describing this issue and the SCOTUS case on point:
