New Czar Sunstein: Let Obama Interpret Laws

New Regulatory "Czar" of Obama-Democrat Regime, Cass Sunstein.
Is this guy a stark raving mad lunatic?
When will this guy be forced to resign?

This newly-confirmed-by-the-negligent-Senate "czar" apparently believes that whoever's the President should be able to interpret laws howsoever s/he sees fit.

"There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him," argued Sunstein.

Meaning that he believes that laws should be interpreted according to the ideology of the incumbent President and his cronies.

This statement was the central thesis of Sunstein's 2006 Yale Law School paper, "Beyond Marbury: The Executive's Power to Say What the Law Is." The paper, in which he argues the president and his advisers should be the ones to interpret federal laws, was obtained and reviewed by WND.

Sunstein is not shy about expressing his radical beliefs in papers and books, although many of his controversial arguments have received little to no news media attention or public scrutiny.

Big surprise. It's no secret that the Approved Media won't talk about the scary, dangerous views of Obama's czars. They ignored all the explosive, devastating discoveries about Van Jones and his extremist views, after all...

Isn't it alarming that the Approved Media, such as ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times and other biased, hard-leftist "news" media are so uncurious and disinclined to investigate, to dig up information which one would rationally expect a free, independent press to be doing?

Yes, of course it is alarming. Those who aren't alarmed, well, let's just say that they haven't smelled the proverbial coffee yet, let alone had a couple of cups.

But no sweat. I link every day to those Non-Approved Newsmedia who have the integrity to report what needs to be reported and what the People need and want to know. My sidebar has a listing of excellent Non-Approved Newsmedia sites fully worthy of bookmarking to aid in the dissipation of the smoke and shattering of mirrors constantly spewed and held up, respectively, by the Approved Media.

Now imagine this:

Suppose a "czar" of the Bush Administration were to say precisely what Sunstein said, also in an old thesis paper.

What, then, would happen?

Yup. The Approved Media (approved, that is, by the Neo-Communist Apparatus) would have discovered the statement (likely via someone or some group, linked to funding coming from George Soros's pocket) and made it the Big Sexy Sensational Story all day long, every day, until the czar was forced to resign. Leftists on TV would be waxing unhinged about the frighteningly dangerous hidden agenda of the czar and of the "Hitlerian" agenda of the president who appointed him, as well as blasting the GOP for not vetting the lunatic. Leftists would angrily accuse the administration of harboring a hidden agenda to interpret laws to do all kinds of horrible stuff, like put certain folks into boxcars and take 'em away and stuff...

But when it's found that Obama's czar said it, well, the Approved Media will cover it up, proving yet again its own bias and worthlessness as a source of reliable, comprehensive, fair, balanced and accurate news and information. Hey, just watch them cover it up! Again! And again! Like we've been watching them cover up whatever's inconvenient to Obama and to The Agenda.
