While 0.6 percent of the U.S. adult population are lawyers, 41 percent of the Congress are, mostly Democrat Congressmen. Members of Congress are sixty-eight times as likely as all American adults to have practiced law. The United States represents 5 percent of the world’s population and 66 percent of the world’s lawyers. Further, 97 percent of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association go to the Democratic Party.
So what do lawyers do? They sue!
[Source: In 8 years of Obama, GOP AGs sued 46 times. Democrats already sued Trump 35 times, by Fred Lucas]
Democrats are on track to file a record number of lawsuits against one administration. Already the Democrats have set a record for most lawsuits filed against a presidential administration in a single year.
Let me count the ways:
- The new tax law
- Travel restrictions
- Net neutrality
- Pull back on environmental regulation
And, of course, they are ever so proud of themselves. The Democratic Attorneys General Association has declared on the front of its website: “Democratic attorneys general are the first line of defense against the new administration.” Translation: We intend to slow the progress toward Making America Great Again.
Just last year Democrat Attorneys General initiated 35 multistate lawsuits against the Trump administration. By contrast, during the entire eight years of the Obama presidency Republican AGs initiated a grand total of 46 suits against his administration.
I saw the Republican lawsuits as an effort to force Obama to follow the Constitution. The Democrat suits appear to be end runs around the Constitution. California State Attorney General Xavier Becerra has filed 24 different lawsuits on 17 subject areas. Wow! His is a state that is home to more than 10 million illegal aliens and among his suits are DACA, the border wall, immigration enforcement, and sanctuary cities. Wow! What an exemplary law enforcement official.
Boy am I ever proud to be a Californian. Yuck!!!!
