    Stop the Cass Sunstein Confirmation!
    Urge your Senators to vote NO on Sunstein!


    Stop the Sunstein Confirmation!!!

    President Barack Obama has nominated Cass Sunstein, a radical anti-hunting, anti-gun, animal rights law professor to be his “regulatory czar.”

    If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Sunstein will have unchecked power to severely limit or end hunting freedom and gun ownership in America.

    You read that right.

    According to Michael A. Livermore, executive director of the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law: “[Regulatory Czar] is the most important position that Americans know nothing about. All major regulations…will pass Sunstein's desk.”

    Sunstein will have the power to write regulations dealing with the length of hunting seasons, Federal land use, deciding which species are “endangered,” draconian noise and environmental standards at shooting ranges, taxes on guns and ammunition, gun shop and gun show regulations, federal record keeping on gun purchases… And on thousands of regulations dealing with meat processing, life-saving medical research that involves animal testing, animal “rights,” and much more.

    We MUST stop Sunstein’s confirmation!

    Send a petition to your U.S. Senators TODAY.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I think the czar's appointed by the Whitehouse resident do not require senate confirmation.

    Is a Czar even a American thing anyway? Sounds like something Russia would do!

    Thankfully there has been an "hold" put on his appointment to become the "Regularity Czar." That part that has me most concerned (aside from the gun issues) is that this individual wants to give "rights" to livestock, wildlife and pets! Technically a lawyer who represents livestock, wildlife or pets could file a lawsuit on their behalf! Can you imagine being sued by an ANIMAL!!!

    I would hope that the NRA would jump in here with both feet! If this person views were so opposed to the NRA that they would already be aware of this person's views on firearms.

    Truth be said, the Congress has very little say if Pres. Obama wants to "appoint" this man as the new "Regularity Czar." Pres. Obama is final authority on if this man is appointed or not. If this were a cabinet post, the Senate would have to confirm or not confirm him. That's why Pres. Obama "appointed" all his czars. There is NO ACCOUNTABILITY whatsoever to Congress!

    There are no Czars in the Condtitution, hence no confirmation procedure. Life would be so much less complicated if we just had a legitamate goverment attending to it's legally mandated functions.

    Within an hour of posting messages here I've already called both my senators in the capital. I'm also going to be sending longer emails later today as well. Nowadays most of our senators have toll free number in Washington, D.C. You really have no reason for not calling your elected officials to complain once in a while.

    Now I'm getting more emails AND telephone calls from my various elected officials more than I have in the last 10 years or so! It's amazing how our elected officials respond to your telephone calls & emails! It's kind of fun in an odd kind of way!

    The Constitution says this:
    [The President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint [...] all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law [...]
    So, the President may appoint Officers of the United States not specifically mentioned in the Constitution. The requirements seem to be that these positions be established by law (i.e., legislated into existence by Congress) and appointed only with Advice and Consent of the Senate.

    This would seem to imply that any Presidential appointment not specified by the Constitution needs supporting legislation, and since Senate confirmation seems to be the accepted interpretation of 'Advice and Consent,' well, there you go...

    Except the next line is this:
    [...] but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone [...]
    So, it seems we need to know if there is a law, passed by Congress, that allows the President such wide discretion in appointing such 'czars'. I honestly don't know whether such a law is on the books.

    Not to grab the thread, but if you're alarmed at Hussein's czars, this should alarm you just as much.

    Sheesh...the guy was a Constitutional Law Professor, of course he's read the Constitution.

    Er, well, he claims he was one, and The One Who Will Save Us All always tells the truth, right?

    At any rate, Obama knows what's in the Constitution. He simply disagrees with most of it and managed to convince a plurality he really didn't. Sucks to be us.
