Class Notes

We are starting off this semester studying the Constitution.  What I think is the most important line in the entire document and is often the most forgotten comes from Article 1, Section 1.  It’s the first thing written, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.”  In other words, only Congress can make laws.  Not the president with executive orders and not the courts with decisions.

  1. I enjoy and appreciate your daily posts. In today’s offering you (correctly in my opinion) say the President cannot make laws with Executive Orders. Would you expand that a bit and offer some clarity on the relative authority of Executive Orders vis-a-vis their relationship with Law?


    1. Thank you Jim. If you like to read a bit more about what I have said over the past couple years I have written three articles on executive orders. You can search the topic on my website or the dates were Jan 4, 2019; Feb 15, 2021; and April 19, 2021. Hope that helps, let me know
