Congress Making Good On Rescinding Rogue "Privacy" Regulations Rammed Through by Obama's FCC

Among the myriad missteps and abuses of the Obama Administration, its habit of rogue lawmaking through unelected administrative agencies rather than the deliberative democratic process was perhaps the worst.  Even the most liberal Supreme Court justices on several occasions agreed, striking down Obama Administration regulatory impositions by unanimous votes.

And perhaps no federal agency represented that lawlessness and impropriety better than the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

CFIF Releases New Ad in West Virginia Urging AG McGraw to Fight Back Against Washington’s War on Coal Print
Thursday, October 25 2012

ALEXANDRIA, VA – As part of its ongoing State Sovereignty Project, the Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) today released a new TV ad in West Virginia that urges Attorney General Darrell McGraw to stand up for West Virginians against Washington’s War on Coal.

The new ad, titled “Crushing” and which can be viewed below, is the second in a series of CFIF ads in the state and part of a nearly $1.6 million expenditure announced by CFIF earlier this month.  

“Washington’s War on Coal threatens the livelihoods of thousands of West Virginia families and the bedrock of the state’s economy,” said CFIF President Jeffrey Mazzella.  “It’s time for Attorney General McGraw to get off his hands and use his authority to fight back against Washington’s destructive overreach.”

Founded in 1998, CFIF is a constitutional and free market advocacy organization with more than 250,000 activists and supporters nationwide. CFIF’s State Sovereignty Project was launched earlier this year to encourage governmental authorities closest to the people to reclaim and exercise the structural powers granted to them by the U.S. Constitution as a bulwark against federal encroachments on state sovereignty and erosion of the individual liberties of the people they serve.
