^ Well, he can tell ‘em, “Enforce your own damn laws, but count me out. Oh, and don’t break any of our laws while you’re at it.”

Progs basically love feudalism, where each serf is subject to every freeman, who in turn is subject to barons and earls and dukes and such, all in a well ordered, coercive heirarchy where authority is all, responsibility is immaterial, and good will non-existent. And at the top? The United Nations. Gah!
I mean “Gah” in a good way, as one serf to another.
From the minions of the “Legacy Media” spreading their government-approved disinformatsia to the teachers of the government-run schools pushing their government-approved indoctrination, I believe and sincerely hope that there is a special circle of Hell for all these willing lackeys of the current regime (go ahead, progs – cite what I just posted as “hate speech” because I hate what you’re doing to this nation and its citizens in the name of “progress”).

If I may, one addition:
… and these hereditary feudal aristocrats were subject to different laws than commoners.
This, boys and girls, was the truly revolutionary meaning of “All men are created equal.”

Based on the last sentence of the post, the first amendment may have outlived its usefulness.
Wolf and his ilk believe in the “Imperial Presidency”, something which has never existed in this country but, like the concepts of “Lords and Serfs” and “Camelot” the Democrats have pined for these last five decades.
Historically, it’s called the “enlightened despot,”
a yearning for a wise, just, and good king who will fix it all.
Progs looove the “enlightened despot” idea.
(What? Well, okay, yeah, some call it “daddy issues,” too.)

Wolf and Piers ought to get their own show, where they explain Constitutional law to us dummies.
They could call it “Just because we’re making this shit up doesn’t mean you don’t gotta do it! It’s the law, man!”

It’s the leftist ethos – reality is subject to revision because I *want* it to be, and that includes whether you go to the camps.
Lemme see; after Wolfie gets arrested for, say vehicular manslaughter one boozy evening, let’s see him forego a lawyer and apply his superior legal knowledge by arguing dismissal of his own case because the charge is ‘unconstitutional’.
“See here, Judge, manslaughter isn’t mentioned in the Constitution, so I can’t be charged with that. I have rights.”
He’ll look good in orange.
Give some folks a live microphone and they become smugly self righteous fucking know-it-alls.

How is it that someone who is supposedly educated thinks that the Executive department can make law?
Not too many executive orders have been nullified. The most infamous EO is FDR’s EO 1066, that rounded up all the Japanese in the country.
One of the few that got overturned by the Supreme Court was one of Harry Truman’s, that tried to nationalize the steel industry.
The trouble with any law or reguation is that we have has to wait for some poor sap to get caught up in it. Then he can take it to court, but he still has to devote his while life from then on to fight the case.
Used to be, we were a nation of laws. Now we’ve become a nation of regulations – thousands of them, from agencies like the EPA – unelected people who figure they know what’s best for us.
