Super short, very helpful. So I will be very quick and get to the point here. We just have a couple of minutes at the beginning of the show because we have packed it out with some great information. But here, here’s what you need to know.
There’s a real, pernicious, sneaky and subtle wave that is crashing in to we the people. It’s called the administrative state. That’s what you need to know.
Beware the administrative state. So often we are looking on at the wild goings on in Congress and in the White House and thinking that some awful thing, some awful policy is gonna come down sweeping like a huge piece of legislation or a bill or Joe Biden following through with President Obama’s. You know, I have a pen and a phone and just coming in with executive orders in these different things.
But frequently it is not through these big giant broad things like big bills and pieces of legislation like the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare. It’s not always this way. It’s the small little nickel and diming that happens to us by the three letter alphabet agencies that are constantly growing, constantly expanding their budget, constantly expanding their reach and constantly infringing upon Americans in ways that we’re not even aware of.
So if we are turning our eyes around the field, the political field, the cultural field trying to figure out what’s happening and what we need to stop, look no further than the administrative state.
We’ve talked about it this week a couple of times, but there’ve just been some crazy headlines. The CDC. Turns out the CDC bought your cell phone data. 55 million Americans. They bought the cell phone data of them to monitor Americans compliance in 2021 and see if they were behaving accordingly with the lockdowns in different areas. Turns out the ATF has actually been shipping around financial information of Americans to judge your salary based on if you seem to be wealthy enough to buy all of these guns that were getting background checks for. Otherwise, no, you know, I think we need to flag this person they seem like likely they’re they’re doing something fishy because they don’t seem to make enough money to buy. Guns. Are you kidding me? The CDC buying our cell phone data to make sure we’re staying at home, the ATF checking on our financial information to make sure that we’re allowed to buy guns, we make enough money.
This is nuts. Absolutely nuts. And yet that is the creeping power of the administrative state. And if you look up and down the new Biden budget, you’ll see just all of these line item adds. Power and influence and money into the executive branch. This bloated administrative state, that’s a combination of the executive agencies and it is absolutely bleeding Americans dry.
The real threat – the real and prevalent and active threat right now against the American people is coming from the administrative state, so This is why congressional oversight and checks and balances are so important. So we gotta keep encouraging the new House to continue their oversight role and making sure that this kind of stuff gets out in the public. Because it gets buried into financial documents, pushed aside, pushed away. And guess what? You and I find out about it when it’s too late. The cell phone data has already been bought. The background checks on firearms have already been denied. It’s already happened because it’s sneaky. It’s slow, it’s quiet. And these little nickel and dime ways are how they are infringing upon the rights of you and me every single day. It is the administrative state, so don’t turn away because we’re about to get into a couple of great interviews here. And don’t forget to go to proamericareport.com. You’ll find those interviews and all the others and we will. Be right back here on the. Pro America Report talk to you in a minute.
