What Is the Regulatory Czar Up To?

Do you remember Cass Sunstein, President Obama's Regulatory Czar who became famous for saying that the government "owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and the government can remove their organs without asking anyone's permission." Sunstein also said that dogs are entitled to have lawyers to sue humans in court -- bow wow. Sunstein recently emerged with an editorial in the Wall Street Journal supporting Obama's Executive Order 13609 calling for global regulatory harmonization. Maybe Sunstein will try to harmonize our dogfood regulations with China, whose dogfood just poisoned 1,000 U.S. dogs. Maybe Sunstein will find a way to harmonize U.S. production of electronic parts for our military aircraft with the 1,800 cases of counterfeit parts Communist China sold to our military. Obama's Executive Order creates a "Working Group" to issue regulations and "guidelines" that will "operate on consensus." That's the favorite United Nations procedure to avoid any U.S. veto.

President George W. Bush had dreams of harmonizing our regulations with those of Canada and Mexico as a stepping stone to creating a North American Union. Bush set up Working Groups under the name Security and Prosperity Partnership. But Bush's three-country plan was not acceptable to Americans who value our independence, and not global enough for Obama who is eager to turn us into world citizens under global governance. After Obama was elected, the Security and Prosperity Partnership closed down and deleted its website. Obama's new Executive Order has re-created this bad idea and made it global instead of just North American. The real purpose is to reduce our standard of living by transferring U.S. wealth to dictators all around the world.
