Townhall: Federalism doesn’t pause during a pandemic

Federalism doesn’t pause during a pandemic

|
Posted: May 04, 2020





As the COVID-19 lockdowns continues to grind on in most states, President Trump has signaled an intense desire for state governors to reopen their respective states. This pressure has ranged from the subtle to the overt. In one particularly alarming development, the president even went so far as to declare that the decision to lift the current stay at home orders is his to make, not state governors.

“The authority of the president of the United States” over reopening state economies “is total,” according to President Trump. “I have the ultimate authority.”

While the president’s remarks are no doubt intended to offset the already sizeable damage done to a large portion of the electorate’s economic prospects, any action taken by the federal government must account for the separation of powers built into our system of federalism.

Under the American system of federalism, the primary power to combat COVID-19 rests with the states, not the federal government or the president.

America Is a Technocracy, Not a Democracy

America Is a Technocracy, Not a Democracy

05/01/2020 | 

Perhaps never before in American history have the unelected technocrats played such an enormous role in shaping public policy in America.
In recent weeks, members of Congress have been missing in action. Late last month, the House of Representatives passed the biggest spending bill in history while most members were absent. Member votes were not recorded and the legislation was passed with a voice vote, which required only a tiny handful of members.
Weeks later, the Senate refuses to even meet, and may finally get around to debating some legislative matters in May. As with the House, a handful of members assembled earlier to approve another enormous stimulus bill. Many Senators stayed home. This is "representative government" in modern America.
But if you thought this lack of congressional action means not much is happening in Washington in terms of policymaking, you would be very wrong. It's just that the democratically elected institutions have now become a largely irrelevant sideshow. The real policymaking takes place among unelected experts, who decide for themselves—with minimal oversight or control from actual elected officials—what will happen in terms of public policy. The people who really run the country are these experts and bureaucrats at the central banks, at public health agencies, spy agencies, and an expanding network of boards and commissions.

The True Purpose of the Coronavirus Wargame | Glenn TV

The True Purpose of the Coronavirus Wargame | Glenn TV




The coronavirus led to a devastating shutdown of our economy and our way of life. It's everything socialists all over the world have ever dreamed of — opportunity born out of crisis. But who drafted the agenda for our response to the pandemic? Glenn reveals how a group of global elites prepared for a future coronavirus pandemic just months before China reported its first case. Rosa Koire, author of "Behind the Green Mask: UN Agenda 21," joins to discuss how we've actually been fighting a global agenda for decades and details the frightening endgame global socialists have for America. Plus, Glenn asks: How did the World Health Organization become the gatekeeper for pandemic information? Was there a wargame for that too?

WALTER E. WILLIAMS: Benefits vs. costs and COVID-19

One of the first lessons in an economics class is everything has a cost. That’s in stark contrast to lessons in the political arena where politicians talk about free stuff.

Living and Dying in Bill Gates’ Fish Bowl

Living and Dying in Bill Gates’ Fish Bowl

By |April 21st, 2020 

As the virus takes its toll, those of us still in good health and with the ability to think clearly have the duty to explain to our fellow citizens what is really going on. We are living in a global experiment in which “health experts” such as Bill Gates, previously known for software development, have decided to treat us as specimens in a giant fish bowl for study and observation. Many of us will get sick. Many won’t survive.

Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the recipient of an academic award from Chinese communist authorities, has emerged in recent weeks as an “expert” on coronavirus when just a few months ago the media were starting to pay attention to his sleazy involvement with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Even the New York Times was on to the storydigging up photos of Gates and Epstein at his mansion. One of Epstein’s associates had been placed at the Gates Foundation.

Epstein was among a group of global elites who shared an atheist belief that scientific advances could help them live forever artificially. It’s not exactly clear what Epstein, Gates, and others were contemplating. But Gates’ relationship began after Epstein was convicted of sex crimes.

The European Union is Dead but Does Not Yet Know It


The European Union is Dead but Does Not Yet Know It

by 
  • The truth is that there is no "Union".
  • The coronavirus now has put the European Union and its comfort zone face-to-face with all its weaknesses, decadence and cowardice.
  • Another merciless battle Italy fought with the EU was for protective face-masks. France adopted a policy of requisitioning them; Germany banned their export. Those unilateral decisions undermined a much-touted EU principle: the free movement of goods in the single market.
  • As L'Express exposed, France seized four million masks belonging to a Swedish company and that had been intended, in part, for Italy and Spain.
  • When Italy and Greece were overwhelmed by migrants from the Middle East and Africa, the EU countries refused to take their "share" of migrants. Lacking a policy to stop the flow of mass immigration, Europe decided to leave the southern countries to their fate.

Davos Forum: Stuck On Stupid Over “Climate Action Failure”

Davos Forum: Stuck On Stupid Over “Climate Action Failure”

 
This year’s World Economic Forum Davos convention of global elitists drew 2,782 registered participants representing 117 countries and 121 nationalities. In a micro-sense, it resembles a United Nations meeting but only for plutocrats: rich, famous and powerful.
For all of the economic problems facing the world, the Davos leadership saw fit to have 17 year-old Greta Thunberg come and give them a tongue lashing for not living up to her expectations of climate change hysteria.
She duly scolded them on every front, but mostly for listening to her while subsequently doing nothing about her demands.
