At American Power
I've been saying this for a while.
John Fonte, at the Claremont Review, "Transformers":
Four Years of Hillary
Hillary Clinton will consolidate and expand Obama’s “fundamental
transformation.” America will see both an increase in power for the
administrative state, which will breech the parchment barriers of the
separation of powers and federalism, and the relentless advance of
identity politics, which undermines our traditional civic morality
centered on the concept of individual American citizenship.
Since we are perhaps the most litigious society in the world, any
Clinton-Trump political comparison must consider how each will treat the
interpretation and enforcement of the law. Besides appointments to a
sharply divided Supreme Court, the next president will appoint scores of
lower court judges and U.S. attorneys, the Attorney General, and
lawyers in the Justice Department and throughout the federal agencies.
There is every reason to expect that the Clinton Legal Behemoth will
push the legal envelope with a vengeance on: Obamacare; climate change;
green energy; guns; coal; international law; housing; education;
immigration; gender, racial, ethnic, and linguistic disparities; and, of
course, expanding the administrative state’s scope and power to the
detriment of the separation of powers and federalism. One could well
imagine a legal Blitzkrieg against political critics like Dinesh
D’Souza, sheriffs who enforce immigration law like Joe Arpaio, climate
skeptics, conservative activists, fossil-fuel industry executives,
Christians, purveyors of alleged “hate speech,” and perceived enemies of
social justice and ethnic/gender equity.
