Judicial Fortitude: The Last Chance to Rein in the Administrative State
In a timely book, Peter J. Wallison challenges the legitimacy of the modern administrative state. Rather than take up the burden of legislating, Congress has delegated lawmaking responsibility to regulatory agencies in direct violation of the Framers’ intent that the only government officials who should make law are the ones directly accountable to the electorate. The Supreme Court has aided and abetted this knowing violation of the Constitution by upholding a broad range of rulemaking delegations to political appointees and bureaucrats. The Court has aggravated the problem with the Chevron doctrine, which allows agencies to define the meaning of acts of Congress even though the Framers intended the federal courts to have that authority. This book argues that there is time to re-establish the constitutional system that the Framers created, but that we must act now or risk losing this opportunity forever.

The Violent Attacks in Portland and Why Americans Deserve Law and Order
The Nation is reeling from sustained physical, verbal, and political attacks on our brave and patriotic law enforcement officers. These men and women put their lives on the line every single day to keep our communities safe. Instead of thanking them, a large portion of our society has subjected them to vulgar criticisms and vile characterizations. We have also seen extreme cases, such as in Portland, where violent anarchists, domestic terrorists, and thugs have wreaked violent attacks against law enforcement. Unfortunately, this has turned into a large movement to eliminate them altogether.Commissioner Mark Morgan is the head of the largest law enforcement agency in the entire country. He has a long career in law enforcement, from police work, to the FBI, leading ICE, and now CBP. There is no one better situated to discuss how important law enforcement is and all the great work they are doing to restore law and order.
