Curtis Hill's Newsletter Addresses Stopping Government Overreach

Curtis Hill's Newsletter Addresses Stopping Government Overreach

Friends,

The Founders knew that the best governance is performed as close to the problem as possible. That's why the federal government shouldn't pick up the trash, your local county shouldn't raise an army, and our state government is probably the best level at which to pass criminal laws and sentencing guidelines.

The Founders recognized that this principle had to be expressed and made permanent in our U.S. Constitution so that citizens could be protected from their state government, and so both citizens and states would be protected from the federal government.

The Tenth Amendment to our United States Constitution specifically guarantees that "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Indiana’s Attorney General is the first line of defense when the balance of power between the federal government and our state is under attack -- and that is a responsibility I take very seriously.

  • Over the last eight years, it has been disturbing to watch President Obama circumvent the Constitution through executive orders and ever-bolder agency regulation. Because of this, as your next Attorney General, I will establish a federalism unit within my office dedicated to protecting and preserving our rights as Hoosiers to govern ourselves. This includes fighting efforts like Obamacare and attacks against our Second Amendment rights.
     
  • We must also stand up to federal agencies to protect our state’s powers and responsibilities, and to protect the rule of law. For example, I am against the potential closure of Guantanamo Bay and the transfer of detainees to the United States, not just because we have a federal prison in Terre Haute, but because it violates the rule of law. Even President Obama's own Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, has previously said that federal law prohibits such a transfer. In addition to ignoring the rule of law, the president’s plan would threaten the safety of Hoosiers and all Americans.
     
  • I am also concerned about the overreach of President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency. While his ever-expanding federal government asserts more and more authority over our property – even down to a puddle of water - states and citizens are left to deal with the consequences for their homestead, their farms, and their businesses.

These are only a few issues, but they portray a federal government that is out of control and out of touch with everyday Hoosiers. Join me in the fight to restore our state’s rightful constitutional role of self-governance.

Curtis Hill Is Keynote Speaker at Nappanee Area Prayer Breakfast

Curtis Hill Is Keynote Speaker at Nappanee Area Prayer Breakfast

Candidate for Indiana Attorney General, Curtis Hill, was the keynote speaker for the Nappanee area prayer breakfast in observation of the National Day of Prayer held at the Dal Mar Banquet Hall in Nappanee, Indiana.

The Nappanee prayer breakfast has been an annual tradition for several years, first hosted by former mayor Larry Thompson, and now hosted by Mayor Phil Jenkins, who is currently in his first year as the Mayor of Nappanee.

The program was led by 11 area pastors who offered specific prayer for several segments of the community, including prayer for government, prayer for military, prayer for media/arts,  prayer for education, prayer for marketplace, and prayer for the family, among others.

Curtis Hill offered remarks on the historical significance of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution on a free society.  

Hill quoted from the Declaration of Independence and said, “Our government was never intended to be the boss of us. It was laid out with a system of checks and balances with one important aspect being that power remain with the states and with the people.”

Hill said it was going to take courage and perseverance in faith to turn things around. He spoke of the courage of his father, who was born in Oklahoma and after the local Negro and Indian School was closed was sent to live with relatives to finish his education. He eventually moved to Elkhart, married and got a good job with the post office. His father bought two lots intending to build a home. One was along Ind. 19 by Hubbard Hills and the other on the north side of Elkhart, where it was immediately made known to him that he and his family were not welcome.

His father decided then to build the home in that north side neighborhood and after their home was bombed in the 1960s, bought a shotgun to arm himself and protect his family.

Hill said, “He understood that even in America sometimes you have to fight for your freedoms. My father was my hero. What a different country this might be if all little boys could say that.”

He spoke of the cultural shift in America in the last decade and said, especially as people of faith, “We have to retain the principles we have while adapting, not adopting, to the culture.”

Hill said people have to fight for principles, building strength by sticking together and not let a slight difference in opinion keep them from working together.

“It’s absolutely essential if we’re going to move forward as a nation,” Hill concluded.

It was noted by Mayor Jenkins that Hill has been a fixture at the Nappanee prayer breakfast since its inception.

Curtis Hill's Commitment to Protecting Hoosiers from Government Overreach

Curtis Hill's Commitment to Protecting Hoosiers from Government Overreach

Over the last eight years, it has been disturbing to watch President Obama circumvent the Constitutional powers and responsibilities of the States through executive orders and encroaching bureaucratic actions. To combat this trend, as your next Attorney General, I will establish a Federalism Unit within my office dedicated to protecting and preserving the rights of Hoosiers to govern ourselves.

The Federalism Unit will be directed by my Solicitor General, who will also serve as advisor to other agency lawyers and various state officials regarding complex constitutional issues. This unit will intervene if necessary when Indiana's most critical interests are at stake. Such critical interests might include Obamacare, First and Second Amendment infringements, relocating Guantanamo Bay terrorists to Terre Haute's federal prison, and an EPA and other agencies that reach their tentacles into every Hoosier homestead, farm, and business.

As the chief lawyer for the State of Indiana, I will empower the Solicitor General and the Federalism Unit to directly handle those appeals determined to be most significant for Indiana to restore the proper balance between our state authority and that of the federal government. In addition, the Federalism Unit will author “friend of the court” briefs for submission to the U.S. Supreme Court and other courts across the nation. We will lead the fight in federal and state courts against a federal government that is out of control and out of touch with lives of everyday Americans.

The 10th amendment to our United States Constitution specifically guarantees that “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." As a result, Indiana’s Attorney General is the first line of defense when our state’s powers and responsibilities are under attack -- and that is a responsibility I take very seriously.

Join me in the fight to restore our state’s rightful constitutional role of self-governance.

As Indiana's Next Attorney General, Curtis Hill Will Fight Against Obamacare

As Indiana's Next Attorney General, Curtis Hill Will Fight Against Obamacare

The Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare", is a clear representation of governmental overreach and demonstrates how the federal government circumvents The United States Constitution to achieve the goals of their short-sighted and expensive policies, which will cripple our state's economy and compromise the health and well-being of our citizens.

It is important that we understand the consequences of Obamacare. It's not just that Obamacare is bad policy, though it is true that health insurance premiums are rising, while coverage is dropping. What's worse, it has transformed the relationship between the government and the governed. The federal government has coerced the states to choose between bad and worse options, and has arrogated to itself the power to tell citizens what to buy and when.

The creators of Obamacare knew that our government could not force states to establish exchanges. Establishing a state exchange would commit Indiana to increased and unnecessary spending to support Obamacare's bad healthcare policies. Indiana chose not to. Knowing we would refuse, a Democrat Congress specified that credits and subsidies would only to be available in states that set up their own health-insurance exchanges. This was the carrot.

And they also had a stick. The IRS is enforcing tax penalties in all states that have (rightfully) declined to create their own exchanges. They will send the penalty fees paid by private insurers to Washington to pay for subsidies provided by the federal government to individuals purchasing health insurance through their exchanges. These penalty fees are expected to increase to $14.3 billion by 2018. In addition to increased taxation, as a further punishment for Indiana not complying with Obamacare, Hoosiers are now limited from their basic, previous Medicaid programs.

Indiana and nearly thirty states are battling the government's imposition of taxes and penalties for refusing to establish a state health-care exchange. If the courageous legal efforts by the majority of states are successful in defeating the Obama administration, deficit spending associated to Obamacare is estimated to be reduced by approximately $700 billion over the next decade. More important, we can start to reclaim our rightful place in our constitutional republic.

We must stand strong and fight for the restoration of the balance of power envisioned by the Founders. With your support, as your next Attorney General, I will work hard to assure that Indiana is protected from such blatant abuses of our government's executive power.

Curtis Hill Will Support Agriculture in Indiana's Rural Communities

Curtis Hill Will Support Agriculture in Indiana's Rural Communities

Agriculture is a major economic driver of the State of Indiana as well as the source of our food, fiber, shelter, and fuel. Food security – food that is safe, nutritious and affordable is important to all Hoosiers.

As Attorney General, I will increase the agricultural law expertise of the office of the Indiana Attorney General to support the rural and agricultural communities of Indiana. The agency regulatory review process of the Attorney General's office will be conducted transparently, competently, and efficiently. I will ensure that regulations be minimal and drafted in clear and consistent language and enforced openly and with objective fairness.

The Hoosiers who grow our food, fiber, shelter and fuel, need our support and as Attorney General, food security will be a top priority!

Supporting facts:

  • 245,000 Indiana jobs are supported by agriculture. 
  • 19,400,000 acres of land are in farms and forests (the Indiana total land area (acres) is 23.3 million).
  • The value of agricultural products sold in Indiana was $11.2 billion.
  • Indiana ranked 10th in the nation in agricultural sales.
  • Fun Fact – we've got more chickens then people! 41.5 million broiler's were sold in Indiana in 2012. That's 6 times more chickens than people in Indiana!

Friend,
 
When I’m out stumping for Curtis on the campaign trail, I often get asked why he’s the best candidate for Attorney General. There couldn’t be an easier question to answer! Curtis has proven to his fellow prosecutors, and the voters that he has the knowledge, experience and skills needed to be a good Attorney General.  He will respect our rights under the United States Constitution and the Indiana Constitution.
 
For me, though, it comes down to one powerful word: trust. We can trust his leadership, trust his willingness to do the right thing and trust him to find solutions to some of the biggest problems facing Indiana.
 
There is no one I would rather have in the Attorney General’s office to face these issues head-on than Curtis Hill. He will stand up to our overreaching federal government, make sure Hoosiers are protected from instances of fraud, fight to rid our neighborhoods of drugs and crime and make sure young Hoosiers choose paths that take them far away from substance abuse.
 
I know we can trust him to get the job done because he’s done it as Elkhart County Prosecutor, and he’ll do it again as our Attorney General.

Attorney General Candidate Curtis Hill Statement on the Closure of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s South Bend Abortion Clinic

ELKHART – Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill, a candidate for the Republican nomination for Attorney General in Indiana, issued this statement in response to the closure of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s abortion clinic after 38 years of operation in South Bend:

“For years, those of us in Northern Indiana have watched the growing controversy surrounding Dr. Ulrich Klopfer. Today’s closure of his abortion operation in South Bend is a positive result that highlights the importance of the Attorney General’s office in Indiana.

“Enforcing the law, and protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of Hoosiers from doctors who don’t follow the rules, is an important function of the office. I will both enforce those laws and faithfully execute my responsibility to defend Hoosiers as Indiana’s Attorney General.

“We deserve the peace of mind to know that life is protected in this state, and the closure of Dr. Klopfer’s facility is a step in the right direction.”

Attorney General Candidate Curtis Hill Announces Opposition to  President Obama’s Plan to Relocate Guantanamo Bay Detainees

Attorney General Candidate Curtis Hill Announces Opposition to President Obama’s Plan to Relocate Guantanamo Bay Detainees

“As Attorney General, I would be tasked with the responsibility of protecting the rights, freedoms, and safety of all Hoosiers. Therefore, I would never hesitate to stand up for our state against any threat we face – including the threats posed by an overreaching and out-of-control federal government. That is why I am voicing my strong opposition to President Barack Obama’s resurrected plan to relocate detainees of Guantanamo Bay to federal prisons in the United States, including potentially our facility in Terre Haute.

“The prison at Guantanamo Bay serves a useful purpose in detaining suspected terrorists in a secure facility far from our shores and not a single one of them should ever set foot in our country. And yet, seven years after he first pledged to close Guantanamo, President Obama is still trying to bring terrorists to U.S. soil despite the clear fact that it would violate federal law.

“As Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s own Attorney General, stated, federal law prohibits the transfer of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay to locations within the United States. The president’s plan would violate the rule of law and, more importantly, threaten the safety of American citizens. As Indiana’s Attorney General, I would not only publicly oppose any such action by the federal government, but I would actively fight any move that could endanger the people of Indiana by exposing them as potential targets of retaliatory measures.”

Curtis Hill Officially Files for Attorney General

Elkhart County Prosecutor files paperwork with Indiana Republican Party

ELKHART- Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill officially filed his candidacy for the Republican nomination for Indiana Attorney General. The filing was made at the Indiana Republican Party Headquarters. The nominee will be chosen by delegates at the Indiana Republican Party Convention in June in Indianapolis. 

Shortly before Hill filed his candidacy he to spoke to the Indiana Drug Enforcement Association at their Annual Training Conference. 

Hill stated, “It is fitting that I would officially file my candidacy for Indiana Attorney General on the same day that I spoke to a gathering of Indiana Drug Enforcement Association members. If I am entrusted with the responsibility to serve our state as Attorney General, I will work tirelessly to enforce our drug laws while also creating programs to prevent pathways to drug use and related crime.” 

The Indiana Drug Enforcement Association was founded in 1986 with the four following principles:

  • To encourage a high standard of enforcement of federal and state narcotics laws through training, education, and discipline.
  • To participate in programs to educate the public concerning the hazards of drug abuse.
  • To promote improved laws aimed at more effective drug enforcement.
  • To foster a spirit of trust and cooperation among all police officers and law enforcement agencies — federal, state, and local.

Curtis Hill Is Battling Meth, but Also Urging to Prevent Use to Fight Demand

Curtis Hill Is Battling Meth, but Also Urging to Prevent Use to Fight Demand

(The Elkhart Truth Editorial Board)  Several county prosecutors testified before a committee in the Indiana General Assembly this week. They pointed to Indiana’s huge methamphetamine problem and said that curbing pseudoephedrine sales is needed to battle the scourge.

Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill didn’t testify. If he had, it wouldn’t have been to limit PSE.

Hill, who is also running for Indiana Attorney General, told the Elkhart Truth Editorial Board that the real problem with meth in Indiana is demand.

“As long as demand is there, everything else is secondary,” he said.

The Elkhart Truth and its editorial board don’t always agree with Hill, but on this issue, we believe he’s right. It’s unorthodox to say, but the answer to Indiana’s meth problems isn’t limiting a legal drug that works really well to fight cold symptoms.

Hill, who is in his fourth term as the county’s chief prosecutor, has fought meth dealers. When he took office, there were few manufacturers in the county because the county was “swimming in Mexican meth,” he said.

About the time of the recession in 2008, after Hill and his staff had busted some major dealers, meth labs became commonplace locally. By 2013, Indiana led the nation in the number of meth labs busted andElkhart County was in the top five counties in the state.

Would Elkhart County residents have figured out how to start meth production if there was still Mexican supply? Probably at least to some degree. Making the drug in even soda bottles and putting them in a car trunk or backpack has become part of modern life in most communities.

Hill has testified on “Methamphetamine in the Heartland” before Congress. He’s been part of a summit on the topic put together by the Office of National Drug Control Policy out of the president’s office. He knows the topic well.

The real problem isn’t supply, he said. The real problem is demand. Fighting labs is important, but he’s unsure how much that will limit the flow of the drug.

This is a man who has aggressively prosecuted drug dealers. He is committed to trying to get rid of drugs, not just lower the amount of them, in our community.

Gov. Mike Pence points to heroin as being a big problem for Indiana and it is.

Hill said prescription drugs are a bigger problem than either meth or heroin. He’s also gone after those who sell synthetic marijuana.

Meth is a huge problem for Indiana, among other states. Some have passed laws to regulate PSE. In Indiana, one of the potential new laws would have pharmacists limit the sales of PSE by requiring a prescription.

The state is responsible to keep its resident as safe as possible. Drunk driving laws limit the amount of alcohol a person can consume before getting behind the wheel. Getting a gun in this state and country is relatively easy, but there is a legal process that regulates it to some degree.

It would be easy for Hill to say that we should limit everything we can when it comes to making meth. He could say that Indiana’s problem is so large that we use whatever means necessary to limit it.

He’s not saying that. He’s saying that there isn’t a magic bullet and fighting the problem means working at prevention. He said the key is getting to a 12-year-old and mentoring him or her, influencing the young person to stay away from the stuff.

Hill will keep fighting meth production and distribution.

His office will prosecute those who make, sell or use meth. While he does that, he’s also saying that we need to work at prevention. That makes sense to us. It seems like common sense.

From The Englehart Group:

ELKHART, Ind. – Four-term Elkhart County Prosecuting Attorney Curtis Hill announced today that he has formed a campaign committee as he considers a run for Indiana Attorney General in 2016.
