Ignoramus Attorney General Sessions and the Talk Radio Ditto-Heads

I’ve been listening to the conservative talk radio ditto-heads, this time in their defense of Donald Trump’s economic freedom-bashing trade tariffs. With Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity repeating Trump’s irrationality in attempting to justify the tariffs, it seems to me they would follow Trump off a cliff.

So now I am skeptical of those talk radio personalities’ objectivity in their criticism of the FBI and DOJ. They have been discussing the case of FISA abuses allegedly committed by Obama flunkies to illegally spy on the Trump campaign, and at the same time Democrats and media attempting a false accusation against Trump of “colluding with Russians” and “Russia hacking the DNC.” But, given how partisan they seem to be now, I doubt very much that Limbaugh and Hannity would be so “objective” if it was the Bush administration’s FBI and DOJ abusing FISA and spying on the Obama campaign. That’s my view on that.

And on this immigration stuff. Rush Limbaugh was repeating the ignorant neanderthal attorney general Jeff Sessions’s diatribe on “sanctuary cities/states,” California, and this denial of nullification and secession, Sessions saying that federal law is “supreme.”

Sessions and the ditto-heads need to re-read the U.S. Constitution and its Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

They need to read the Tenth Amendment Center every day from now on until they get it. As Michael Boldin wrote: Madison, Parsons, Jefferson: States as a Check on Federal Power.

And as Thomas Woods, author of Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, has often stated, the people of the various states created the U.S. government as a third party agent, not the other way around. (Authoritarians think otherwise — like ditto-heads.) The people are the feds’ boss, not the other way around. The people of the states are the feds’ employers who pay their salaries. I think Jeff Sessions forgets this tiny detail.

Anyway, Dr. Woods wrote,

If you and I give a third person (call him Person C) a limited power of attorney to help govern our affairs, and that person oversteps the boundaries outlined in the contract we signed, who gets to decide if Person C is in violation of the contract? Is it Person C himself? Or is it you and I, the people who wrote and signed the limited power of attorney in the first place? Likewise, the states, as the principals to the constitutional compact, have a far better logical claim to be the judges of constitutionality than their agent, the federal government.

Jeff Sessions and the talk radio ditto-heads need to read Dr. Woods’s book, Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.
