RUSH: Can I read to you what Clarence Thomas wrote? I’ve had a little bit of time here to read the decision. This is in the marijuana pot case that I led the program off with today. Clarence Thomas, writing the dissent here. “If Congress can regulate this under the Commerce Clause, then it can regulate virtually anything – and the federal government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers.” That’s exactly what I said.
If Congress, via now the Supreme Court and this 1942 case that really gave us the New Deal, if interstate commerce can be declared to occur when commerce within one state takes place, then Congress can do anything it wants, the courts can do whatever they want. There are no limited, enumerated powers on the federal government. That’s what Thomas wrote in his dissent and I’m proud to mention this to you because it means my interpretation was right.
