Has the Shutdown Shown That Almost Everything is Run by the Administrative State?

Before he headed off to sit in Koch’s lap - in other words, to attend his annual confab and adoringly transmit their latest objectives to his readers - the Washington Post’s James Hohmann affirmed in his Daily 202 newsletter that the shutdown has proven (one should use the past simple rather than the present perfect because this specific Daily 202 was published a day before the shutdown ended so please forgive my mixed tenses) that government in all it’s sprawling forms is essential to life in America.

Among the things Hohmann states are the following,"One enduring result could be that Americans collectively come to appreciate the value government provides in their everyday lives to a greater degree."

Followed by, "For the slay-the-beast types who hold plum posts in the Trump administration, this shutdown has turned into a teachable moment on what exactly the government does and how important it is to people's lives. It's so easy to score cheap political points by talking in the abstract about government "waste." It's hard to actually trim "fat" because, almost always, it turns out there's either a powerful political constituency or a legitimate policy justification for virtually everything federal agencies do."

Has the administrative state become so far-reaching and so part of most people's daily lives that functioning without its libraries worth of rules and regulations is unthinkable for a majority if not most voters? Has its invisible hand become a hidden fabric that runs the most minute details of one's life? Is there, as Hohmann says, a constituency and justification for everything the government and its agencies do? Well, yes. Perhaps there is. It would certainly seem to be the case and it does show why change is so hard to effect on the federal government. Or any level of government, but more so at the federal level.

Can that be changed?

Steve Moore certainly thinks so. In a diametrically opposed piece at National Review, the supply-sider with a long history at the Heritage Foundation who has over the span of 4 decades consistently pushed to limit and cut back government's role in voters' lives, says the shutdown showed how little the federal government matters to people outside the beltway.

Moore sums up his view saying:

"Yes, government is important, and liberals love to point to the very important things government does -- like providing security at airports or food-safety inspections. But those public-safety functions are classified as "essential" government services. There were 800,000 government employees laid off due to the partial shutdown. Less than half are considered "essential." Many of the other half are engaged in activities that are completely incidental to the lives of Americans in most parts of the country. I am not saying that all of these activities are not valuable. I am saying that for the benefit of taxpayers, congress and the president need to find out which are and which aren't."

How likely is it that Congress will actually do what Steve Moore suggests?

Not very. The now obvious truth is that GOP members of Congress have for the most part shown scant willingness to truly cut back federal government. They have been unwilling to even substantially slow the rate of growth of government. And they get re-elected. So, the question does arise over whether voters actually want a reduced federal government.

As Hohman suggests, when you move from abstract declarations of wasteful government spending and get down into the weeds and try to cut specific programs, you will find lobbyists and some group of angry voters willing to raise hell and vote you out of office.

With hard left progressives dragging the Democrats by their short hairs to a world with Medicare-for-all, Free tuition, a Green New Deal, and Abortion even after the aborted baby survives the attempt on its life, the government is so deeply embedded in every single thing you do that freeing oneself of even some small measure of interference seems next to impossible.

What has the shutdown shown America?

The Leviathan is everywhere and alive and well and clamoring for more. As Hobbes wrote, "And whereas some men have pretended for their disobedience to their sovereign a new covenant, made, not with men but with God, this also is unjust: for there is no covenant with God but by mediation of somebody that representeth God's person, which none doth but God's lieutenant who hath the sovereignty under God. But this pretence of covenant with God is so evident a lie, even in the pretenders' own consciences, that it is not only an act of an unjust, but also of a vile and unmanly disposition."

But some men did indeed pretend a disobedience to their sovereign George III and declared that their rights did not flow through a monarch but came from God himself in the form of God-given natural rights.

Some 240 years later, the administrative state with its progressive worldview that is taken on faith as a religion, has created a new and enormous Leviathan, worse in some ways than that idiotic Anglo-German king who gained his crown at Westminster Abbey. Worse because it is a false balm flowing from that progressive faith in state solutions to all that ails citizens.

For how do you depose a bureaucracy?

Throughout the entire shutdown I never experienced any discomfort because of it. None. I paid attention because I wanted to see what happened after 30 days when RIF came available. It was too much to ask for a RIF to happen so there was a very low expectation.

The baby screams, it must be fed. The stage is set for the next act. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Sobriety or lithium might help cure the author of this article, ignorant of history and law, longing for rule by the constitutions of other countries, as advocated by the stinkstanks and the people they’re trying to force on our judiciary. The problem isn’t the deep state, but the shallow state, people appointed by temporary occupants of offices who don’t understand that they work for us, not the person who appointed them or the corporations who bribe them, or their own financial interests, or the foreign leaders who give them orders. Mnuchin is the most recent example of another one of these endless crooks that need some prison time.

Also, why on earth would you think that no one can recognize the author’s style of writing, or the references which are the same ones he has been using for so very many years. Shut it down. I’m reducing my offer to 65 cents, much more than it’s worth.

The shutdown proved no such thing. It did prove the elective offices and appointed political cronies are the problem not the working class people who keep the country regulated.

The bigger problem is the conservative ideology that tells us government cannot do anything right. The leftover gibberish from the Reagan revolution and the libertarians who think John Galt is God.

Wow D., you managed to make a comment without a rambling repetition! good job.


Weary, can we also agree that because the statement is true then it is we, the American people who elect these guys, are at fault? Or is it the system that has been perverted with bad law like citizens united.


The last time I checked we were the 21st ranked “democracy” in the world. Or as they stated we are now an oligarchy, an impersonation of a democracy.

““We’re giving a middle-income tax reduction of about 10 percent – we’re doing it now for middle-income people. This is not for business. That’s on top of the tax decrease that we’ve already given… we’re putting in a resolution sometime in the next week or week and a half, two weeks.”
Donald Trump 10/22/18

That was a lie.

In December, Trump stood in front of US troops and lied to their face. “They said: ‘You know, we could make it smaller. We could make it 3%. We could make it 2%. We could make it 4%.’ I said: ‘No. Make it 10%.”

In fact, the raise was 2.6%

“You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years. More than 10 years!”

That was a lie, too. The military has received at least a 1% pay raise every year for the past 30 years. It wasn’t even the largest one. Military pay increased 3.9% in 2009.

Recently, Trump said this about what is happening on the border: “Women are tied up, they’re bound, duct tape put around their faces, around their mouths. In many cases, they can’t even breathe. They’re put in the backs of cars or vans or trucks.”

And:

“I mean, you have hundreds of miles of open space, and they go out there, and they’re loaded up with drugs or they have women in the backseat of the cars with duct tape all over the place.”

No one at the US Border Patrol could find any record of this ever happening. It turns out this came from a movie, “Sicario: Day of the Soldato.” It is NOT a documentary.

On 1/18/19, Trump tweeted: “Border rancher: “We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal.” Washington Examiner People coming across the Southern Border from many countries, some of which would be a big surprise.”

The bit about the rugs also came from “Sicario.”

Doesn’t this worry the Trump supporters? The President went to Iraq and flat out lied to the troops. He thinks a Hollywood film, “Sicario” actually happened.

Not true.
As shown below, a tax reduction from 25% to 22% is a reduction by 12%;
from 15% to 12% is a reduction by 20%;
from 28% tro 24% is a reduction by 14%;
from 33% to 32% is a reduction by 3%;
Percent change = 100 x (NewValue - OldValue) / ABS(OldValue)

Not true. (again).
Border ranchers in Lordsburg, NM reported finding prayer rugs on their properties.

d.a.n.,
I have no idea what the cut and paste refers to. Just before the 2018 midterm, Trump said there would be a 10% tax cut for the middle class. He made it up out of thin air. No one in the administration knew what he was talking about, there were no plans, there was no legislation in the works. This was in addition to the tax cut passed by the GOP Congress.

Prayer rugs in the desert? Oh Noz! Not again!

https://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2014/oct/19/david-dewhurst/david-dewhurst-says-prayer-rugs-found-texas-brush-/

And it was not “ranchers”, it was one anonymous rancher. There is no proof, no rug, no photo, nothing. It doesn’t even make sense. Why would a Muslim leave a prayer run in the desert? It is not illegal to be a Muslim. And why wait to cross the border, then leave it? The whole thing is preposterous.

phx8, j2t2, and Ed O’hrealy do not understand that when a person writes so many lies, people tend to treat everything they write as a lie. Not to mention their nasty, vulgar, hate speech, whenever anyone disagrees with them.

Yes. We should all take lessons about “decency” from j2t2.

phx8’s racist comments, examples of hypocrisy, call for open-borders, name-calling, rudeness, and other gems:
* [01] phx8 wrote: Thank you for cutting and pasting my comments. I stand by every single one, and I am gratified to see such consistently high quality in my work. Much appreciated.
* [02] phx8 wrote: As for immigration, I would be fine with open borders.
* [03] phx8 wrote: Prejudice against immigrants among U.S. white1 is NOT new … So what is happening today is NOT new, or some sort of intractable problem. Racism and bigotry from the rural, white2 crowds of Trump reflect a long American tradition of hatred.
* [04] phx8 wrote: if Tucker Carlson wants to spread hatred and white3 nationalism on FOX, he should expect consequences.
* [05] phx8 wrote: Tucker Carlson is a white4 nationalist. THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF THE PROGRAM- catering to the bigotry and racism and fears of the white5 FOX audience.
[phx8 is essentially calling all white people that watch Tucker Carlson racists.]
* [06] phx8 wrote: We have seen an unconstitutional effort to ban all Muslims from coming to this country.
[That comment by phx8 is false, because the ban was for specific nations with a lot of terrorism. There was never an executive action that banned Muslims only. The Supreme Court, in the end, upheld Trump’s travel ban]
* [07] phx8 wrote: And heavens! Immigrants, legal and illegal, might vote for Democrats! LOL. Worst excuse for bigotry - ever.
[Not true. The issue is, based on these 12 reasons, Democrats have clearly demonstrated that they have nefarious and despicable motives, by despicably pitting U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other to acquire more power, by pandering to illegal immigrants for 30+ years, for more votes (via more representation in the House, via more U.S. House representatives, via re-apportionment of representatives (i.e. more electoral votes and more federal funding), based on population, based on the decennial CENSUS, which does not verify U.S. citizenship.]
* [08] phx8 wrote: Not the majority. 30% [of Americans are racist] seems about right. You might wonder how that can be possible. But we are not the first country to experience this. There are plenty of fine countries with highly developed cultures that have gone a lot farther down this path than the United States, with much worse outcomes.
* [09] phx8 wrote: In other words, it is a lie. It is a classic example of xenophobia, and the implication with “Middle Easterners” [in the caravan] is intended to stoke Islamophobia as well.
[However, the Guatemalan President, Jimmy Morales announced in October 2018 that 100 people were arrested and deportated, who were “highly linked to terrorist groups, specifically ISIS”. Source: www.snopes.com/fact-check/isis-terrorists-guatemala-caravan/]
* [10] phx8 wrote: Oh, for Pete’s sake! That is the worst kind of fear mongering… . That is why Trump spreads the language of hate, claiming illegal and legal immigrants have been “sent” by Mexico, that they are “criminals” and “rapists,” members of MS-13, “hardened criminals,” “no angels,” and so on.
[Most are only looking for jobs, but many are criminals, and many have already been deported many times. Also, 1,611 U.S. citizens are killed (on average) per year by criminal non-citizens (Source: www.gao.gov/products/GAO-11-187), and 32% of all people incarcerated in federal prisons are illegal immigrants, and that does not include all types of crime by illegal immigrants (Source: (Source#1: Source#3: cis.org/Huennekens/32-Federal-Inmates-Are-Aliens ; Source#2: www.fairus.org/issue/illegal-immigration/examples-serious-crimes-illegal-aliens/ ];
* [11] phx8 wrote: So, yeah. A U.S. President declaring ‘I’m a nationalist’ scares the crap out of anyone who knows anything about history.
* [12] phx8 wrote: Another reason the GOP continues shrinking is the fact that it is a party of ideology, unlike the Democrats, who are a coalition party. The idea that Republicans have “diversity of thinking” is laughable.
* [13] phx8 wrote: And I do not subscribe to your thinking that only white6 men can represent women; that only white7 men can represent blacks; and so on.
[Another lie by phx8, since no one here ever wrote that].
* [14] phx8 wrote: There is a good chance today, Friday, will end with indictments.
[another failed prediction (of many)]
* [15] phx8 wrote: There are the racists, bigots, xenophobes, Islamophobes, and misogynists who support Trump, and there are those who are willing to overlook such vile stuff.
* [16] phx8 wrote: Ohrealy is right. If d.a.n. continues cutting and pasting those long posts he should be banned. Don’t think I’ve ever called for a person to be banned from this site.
* [17] phx8 wrote: The GOP resulted to the unfavorable demographic squeeze of the past decades by rejecting the change, and doubling down on its dwindling base of ageing white8, rural males with high school education or less.
* [18] phx8 wrote: For the incoming 116th Congressional Republicans, there are 29 white9 males in the House, and one female. Overall, the House GOP will consist of 90% white10 males.
* [19] phx8 wrote: The Democrats are incredibly diverse, including blacks, Muslims, and LGBT, representing the make-up of America. The Republicans? Eh, not so much. Just white11 identity politics as usual.

[HMmmm…. 10 out of 7 ? math is not phx8’s strong suit? ].
* [23] phx8 wrote (27-DEC-2018): That would also explain the wild gyrations in the stock markets. Earlier this year I predicted Trump would be impeached by May. I will stand by that prediction. IT will require a lot of Republican senators, and I think we are very near to the point where the evidence of Trump’s criminality and treason will be so overwhelming, there will be national agreement that he has to go.
* [24] phx8 wrote: What it means is that, whereas Nixon and Bush #43 saw their approval ratings drop into the 20’s and even teens, the Trump floor may remain, with the 30% or so of the deplorables supporting the agenda of white12 identity politics no matter how bad the corruption gets, because very simply, white13 identity politics for that 30% is MUCH more important than honest governance or our democratic system.
* [25] phx8 wrote: AOL [AOC (Alexandria Ocasio Cortez)] is awesome. You are seeing the future. She is charismatic, her political instincts are excellent, and she has already proven adept at using social media. This is what Millennial politics will look like. She is only 29 and she has a lot to learn. But she [AOC] comes from a generation that was destroyed by conservative Republican politics. An entire generation found itself graduating from college with enormous debts, health care was unaffordable, and Global Warming threatened the long term future of the planet; meanwhile, thanks to tax cuts and corruption, the wealth of the past four decades was increasingly concentrated at the top, even as federal deficits and the national debt ballooned. (By the way, the national debt has increased $2 trillion in just 2 years under Trump, and the deficit has increased to nearly a trillion). She is the political forerunner of a generation that is tolerant of race, gender, and religion, and intolerant of the racism of Trump and his ilk. Is it any wonder conservatives are both fixated and terrified of her? They should be. She [AOC] is the future, and that future does not include the darkness and greed and destructiveness offered by conservatism. To paraphrase AOL [AOC (Alexandria Ocasio Cortez)]: the dark hates the light.

* [07] phx8 wrote: And heavens! Immigrants, legal and illegal, might vote for Democrats! LOL. Worst excuse for bigotry - ever.
[Not true. The issue is, based on these 12 reasons, Democrats have clearly demonstrated that they have nefarious and despicable motives, by despicably pitting U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other to acquire more power, by pandering to illegal immigrants for 30+ years, for more votes (via more representation in the House, via more U.S. House representatives, via re-apportionment of representatives (i.e. more electoral votes and more federal funding), based on population, based on the decennial CENSUS, which does not verify U.S. citizenship.]

An entire generation found itself graduating from college with enormous debts, health care was unaffordable, and Global Warming threatened the long term future of the planet; meanwhile, thanks to tax cuts and corruption, the wealth of the past four decades was increasingly concentrated at the top, even as federal deficits and the national debt ballooned. (By the way, the national debt has increased $2 trillion in just 2 years under Trump, and the deficit has increased to nearly a trillion). She is the political forerunner of a generation that is tolerant of race, gender, and religion, and intolerant of the racism of Trump and his ilk. Is it any wonder conservatives are both fixated and terrified of her? They should be.

Great! Your “great” comments are certainly something to be proud of, eh?
Of course, most people would be ashamed. But not you [phx8], j2t2, or ohrealy, because you revel in the depth of your depravity (as shown here).

However, IF your “great” comments are so great, why do you refuse to answer the following questions about your “great” comments ?

phx8 wrote: I said it when traitor Roy Ellis encouraged everyone to run off and view Wikileaks during the 2016 campaign.
Why does that make Roy Ellis a traitor?
phx8 wrote: Remember all those slack jawed inbreds wearing MAGA hats?
Do you think MAGA hats should be banned? Why?

Above, you make 13 derogatory references to “white” people.
Why do you hate “white” people ?

Why not tell us, since they are such “great” comments?

She [AOC] is the future, and that future does not include the darkness and greed and destructiveness offered by conservatism.

Congratulation d.a.n. You now have phx8 flattering you by copying what you do. But, that is to be expected. Seldom does our Liberal Pal phx8 have an original idea or thought.

Yeah, phx8 is mighty proud of his racist and vulgar statements.

However, phx8 does not want to talk about the 13 derogatory references about “white” people (above).
phx8 obviously hates “white” people.

I was hoping he would also post post j2t2’s and Ed O’hrealy’s comments too. j2t2 also claimed to be very proud of his “words of wisdom”. And Ed O’hrealy doubled the frequency and hate in his comments, but his scrolling finger is going to get mighty tired. : )
