Supreme Court set to rule on case that could destroy administrative state

 May 26, 2024

The Supreme Court is set to issue a ruling in the case of Securities and Exchange Commission v. Jarkesy which could completely destroy the administrative state and the bureaucracy that has grown in Washington, D.C. for decades.

The case challenges the SEC's internal system of judges and courts, which hear cases and impose fines and functions as the SEC's main enforcement and muscle for the bureaucrats that run one of the federal government's most powerful agencies.

This internal system gives bureaucrats an unchecked power that is not accountable to the American people via Congress or any other elective means.

Critics argue that the judicial power employed by the SEC properly belongs to the U.S. court system.

Billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban issued a statement saying, "I support the right to a jury trial. Period, end of story. There is no constitutional reason or support for the SEC or any government agency to supersede that."

Depending on how the Supreme Court rules, the bureaucracy that has a stranglehold on Washington, D.C. could be ripped up by the root.
