The Commerce Clause and the Erosion of American Liberty
Posted by Print

As a longtime fan of the video work done by our friends over at Reason, I have to admit astonishment at a video that surpasses even their usually high standards.

Check out the latest from the West Coast libertarians on how an expansive judicial interpretation of the Commerce Clause has become a blank check to Congress (skeptics take note: Erwin Chemerinsky, the UC-Irvine Law School dean featured here is not a liberal straw man dug up for the purposes of this video. He’s a highly regarded intellectual on the legal left — which ought to make his closing comments even more disturbing).

Do You Know Who’s Running for California Attorney General?

You will if John Eastman wins next Tuesday’s Republican primary.  Eastman is a former law school dean, clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas, and appellate litigator with experience in over 50 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.  He is also a dyed-in-the-wool conservative.  His nomination for CA AG would instantly make the race the most important contest going into November for state voters.  Why?  Because unlike any of the gubernatorial candidates, Eastman is laying out a comprehensive strategy to fight for lower taxes, stronger borders, and less federal intrusion in the state’s prison and pension systems – all by suing to enforce existing laws.  It’s not often that the expert most likely to be the principal office holder’s deputy runs for the top job.  If Eastman emerges with the California GOP’s nomination next week, get ready for a full court press of conservative first principles.
