Virginia Attorney General on Today’s Supreme Court Ruling

June 28, 2012
Dear Friends,

This is a dark day for the American people, the Constitution, and the rule of law. This is a dark day for American liberty.

This decision goes against the very principle that America has a federal government of limited powers; a principle that the Founding Fathers clearly wrote into the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. The Constitution was meant to restrict the power of government precisely for the purpose of protecting your liberty and mine from the overreaching hand of the federal government.

This unprecedented decision says that Congress has the authority to force citizens to buy private goods or face fines – a power it has never had in American history, and a power King George III and Parliament didn’t have over us when we were mere subjects of Great Britain. Since the federal government itself could never articulate to the court a constitutional limit to this power, Congress has gained an unlimited power to force citizens to buy anything.

I am disappointed with the court’s ruling and with the unprecedented attack on American liberty the president and the previous Congress have created with this law.

Stay tuned – I will be providing more analysis on this in the coming hours, as well as next steps.

Sincerely,

Ken Cuccinelli, II
Attorney General of Virginia

Ken Cuccinelli Crushing Rival Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling in Governor Bid

Cuccinelli and Bolling

In next year’s Virginia Governors race, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, of national fame for filing the first anti-Obamacare lawsuit the day after its passage, is walloping heir-apparent Lt. Governor Bill Bolling among Republican voters 51-15% according to a poll released today by Quinnipiac University.

Cuccinelli shook up Virginia politics by announcing his bid for the Governorship and consequently angered Bolling, who was ‘next-in-line’, but free market politics will allow the voters to select who is ‘next-in-line’, not party seniority.

This is going to be interesting.

Virginia Attorney General calls Obama and his administration the biggest lawbreakers to run the federal government in our lifetimes

Ken Cuccinelli, the courageous Attorney General of Virginia appeared on C-SPAN’s Newsmakers program today and, as usual, exhibited extreme candor in discussing the Obamacare, the presidential election, and the Tea Party movement. While discussing the importance of the Republican candidate prevailing in the 2012 presidential election he made the following statement in a very matter of fact manner.

“This president and his administration are the biggest lawbreakers to run the federal government in our lifetimes.”

And then he elaborated…

Obama compared to a Monarch

Recently former Attorney General Ed Meese says the Obama administration’s “disdain for Congress” and its efforts to consolidate power within the executive branch through the use of “czars” makes it “as close to a monarchy as since the days of George III.” However, as Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli pointed out on 9/12/2010 King George the 3rd and the Parliament of Britain that we rebelled against, respected the liberty of the colonists of America more than the Congress and the President of the United States of America.

And on a lighter note covering the same heavy subject, The BHO Show channel on YouTube has posted this Henry the Eighth song parody.

 

 

 

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus; Cuccinelli to run for Governor 2013

According to the Washington Post, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will reveal his plans to run for Governor next week and make a formal announcement after the legislative session is over this spring.

Cuccinelli, a tea party hero who garnered national attention for suing the federal government over the new health-care law, expects to make a formal announcement after the legislative session in the spring, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity so they could speak freely about his plans.
