Kagan (go to minute 20) if Congress has the authority to require Americans to eat three vegetables and three fruits every day. She immediately went into the liberal snark mode by saying, "sounds like a dumb law." For the next ten minutes she danced, and he avoided really pressuring her. Essentially she said wouldn't respond to dumb hypotheticals and blew him off. Your impression might differ from mine, so I urge you to watch the testimony. This is an extremely important area, as the whole modern liberal edifice of state power rests on expanding the Commerce Clause beyond its original intent so as to eviscerate the ...
shall have power "To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes". Courts and commentators have tended to discuss each of these three areas of commerce as a separate power granted to Congress. It is common to see the Commerce Clause referred to as "the Foreign Commerce Clause ," "the Interstate Commerce Clause ," and "the Indian Commerce Clause ," each of which refers to a different application of the same sentence in the Constitution. Dispute exists as to the range of powers granted to Congress by the Commerce Clause. As noted below, ...

Roscoe Filburn and Diane Monson both got into trouble with the federal government because of plants they grew. The future size and shape of that government hinges on whether those plants were any of its business—and, if so, why. Filburn, an Ohio farmer, grew 23 acres of wheat, 12 more than he was allowed under the Agricultural Adjustment Act. Most of it stayed on his farm, where he milled it into flour for his family, fed it to his livestock, and used it to plant the next year's crop. In 1941 Secretary of Agriculture Claude Wickard fined Filburn for his excessive self-reliance. Monson, a California office manager and ... market research, surveys and trends

This summer, legislators from several states met to discuss the steps needed to restore our Constitutional Republic. The federal government has ignored the many state sovereignty resolutions from 2009 notifying it to cease and desist its current and continued overreach. The group decided it was time to actively counter the tyranny emanating from Washington D.C. From those discussions it became clear three things needed to happen. State Legislatures need to pass 10 key pieces of legislation “with teeth” to put the federal government back in its place. The people must pass the legislation through the Initiative process if any ... market research, surveys and trends

Food fight over the Commerce Clause
U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma wanted to know whether Congress could pass a law requiring Americans to eat three fruits and veggies every day. You know, that federal nanny dictating what we eat. And Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan bit: "Sounds like a dumb law," she quipped. She actually continued with a discussion of how the Supreme Court has decided which federal laws fall within congressional powers under the Constitution's Commerce Clause and which go too far. But the exchange has been portrayed online as proof that Kagan wouldn't stop rampant big government. Well, that's a distortion. But it also ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Of lynch mobs and lawsuits, immigration reform today
As the summer marches on, the possibility that a comprehensive immigration reform law be passed before the November elections is more and more problematic. The Republican Party has decided to go into full lynch-mob mode against the nation's immigrant communities. While on Tuesday, July 6, the U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the State of Arizona, challenging the constitutionality of SB 1070, a controversial anti-immigrant law. In its suit, the Justice Department asks that SB 1070 be declared unconstitutional. The suit alleges that 1070 violates the "Supremacy Clause" of the U.S. Constitution, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Wolf, the question was does the commerce clause allow congress to regulate our diets. No, she did not answer the question. It is an important question because congress is using the commerce clause to make huge power grabs including forcing people to buy health insurance. 2 weeks ago It is not that she could not answer the question, but that if she did answer the question it would have shown her liberal leaning of her interpretation of the Constitution. She holds the same view that Obama has about the Constitution, she does not like the Constitution, because it tells her what government can't do. The " Commerce Clause" ...

I have a question? What transaction in our private lives does not impact interstate commerce, no matter how tangentally? Is this the 'get out of jail free' card for the statist? Is there any transaction to which they can't apply this broad federal overreach? Example: My friends on the left (and right) were horrified by the Patriot Act provision that allowed the federal government to look at library transactions by individuals. OK, but books are written, published, sold, and distributed across state lines. Couldn't one make the argument that the federal government has an interstate commerce clause ...
