Mary Webster — The Federalist Papers Explain Federal Powers

March 27, 2014 1 comment

More often than not, The Federalist Papers explain a subject far more clearly and concisely than I could ever hope to do. Federalist Paper Number 41 begins the discussion about the federal powers as defined in the Constitution.

The American Political System is About to Implode

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD March 6, 2014

The Obama Administration is in a death spiral, mortally wounded by its own messianic left-wing ideology, naiveté, incompetence, lawlessness and persistent lying.

Barack Obama aspired to be Jesus by acting like Stalin.

For a change, let’s start being honest about the shameful condition of our political system. If the Constitution and the rule of law had been enforced, instead of the tenets of political correctness, Obama would have already resigned, been impeached or he may not have been elected at all.

Mary Webster — Federalist Paper Predicts Federal Newsroom Monitors

“A bill of rights is not only unnecessary in the proposed Constitution, but would be dangerous.”[1]

The insights contained in The Federalist Papers never cease to amaze me. It is the best psychology text I have ever read. They not only predict how societies evolve and behave, they explain why they evolve and behave in specific ways.

Amendment 1 seems perfectly clear: “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” Yet Federalist Paper #84 argues that some people will use this clause in the bill of rights to say that regulation of speech and the press is a federal responsibility.

Does a state have the right to nullify federal statutes the state considers unconstitutional? This depends largely on how you define “nullification.” It also depends on what you mean by “right” and what kind of document you understand the Constitution to be. IOW, it depends on your premises.

(CNSNews.com) – Because he did not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and now unilaterally adjusts the Obamacare law as it unfolds, President Barack Obama is sending a signal to liberal federal judges to mirror him and, as a result, the president’s long-term legacy will be “the establishment of lawlessness in the United States,” said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).

(Col Sellin) ~ Does America stand for the preservation of rights or the perpetuation of power? ~ Family Security Matters …

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/imgLib/20120212_Sellin.jpg

In numerous forums, I have argued that there is a Cold Civil War underway in the United States between the power of a one-party state represented by the entrenched Democrat-Republican political establishment and the rights of the American people.

obama-destruction1

obama-destruction1 (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

The Declaration of Independence states that certain rights are unalienable and endowed by the Creator. A one-party state believes that rights are granted by the government and, when deemed convenient, are revocable by politicians.

gophum

gophum (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

The first through ninth amendments to the Constitution enumerate the rights of citizens and the tenth restricts the role of a central government, as stated:

\”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.\”

There is no ambiguity.

Nevertheless, the Democrat-Republican ruling class, which seeks an ever larger and more intrusive government, argues the opposite, that the rights and restrictions stipulated in the Constitution are unclear and that all powers not specifically delegated to the citizen are reserved for the government.

Barack Obama wrote in The Audacity of Hope, \”I have to side with Justice Breyer\’s view of the Constitution — that it is not a static but rather a living document, and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world.\”

Kevin Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution, has said, those who would offer us a \”living\” Constitution are actually giving us a dead one, since such a thing is completely unable to protect us against the encroachments of government power, for example, the misuse of executive orders.

As conservative radio host Mark Levin noted, Obama\’s announcement that he will assume lawmaking powers via executive orders violates the separation of powers clauses of the Constitution.

Yet no objection is raised by the majority Republicans in the House of Representatives, whose power Obama usurps.

Sadly, either through fear or self-interest, instances where members of Congress uphold their oath of office to \”support and defend the Constitution\” above political expediency are at best serendipity or at worst urban myth.

Not surprisingly, the politicians of America\’s one-party state view elections as little more than an opportunity for the redistribution of power among the political elite because the Democratic and Republican parties are not representatives of the people, but representatives of big government.

Members of Congress, once elected, become party foot-soldiers, whose sole purpose is to maintain the…………….

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them to one another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the seperate but equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

This is your call, our call to be unanimous in will, and justice and to declare the seperate but equal standard, to abolish the government, and to refresh liberty. There is no longer the pursuit of happiness, as well as there is no longer a free speech right, or a free will to defend yourself when one individual must do so. The asinine President has quoted Constitutional Law, all while circumventing the Constitution itself. Barack Obama and the Obama administration only empower the people to act upon our Constitutional Birth Right, and annul this system called the government.

There is no time left for Impeachment proceedings to begin, unless charges of Impeachment were brought against the Obama administration and the District of Criminals that are formerly our government. The Constitution references the basic concept that if the current government out steps its Constitutional Bounds, which is what happened on Thursday afternoon November 21, 2013, when the Senate invoked the so called “Nuclear” option, and disemboweled all that is lawful, and in conjunction with the basic rights of both sides of the political aisle to debate and negotiate.

The military has the authority to arrest Barack Hussein Obama (Barry Soetoro) for one of two charges. Either we use the argument that he was not born in the United States, or that he is not a natural born citizen of the United States. I provide for you in the same evidence file that Barack Obama produced as “proof” he is a natural citizen the simple technical detail so many have seemed to overlook. Clearly it states his father as being Kenyan born, or a British subject, in order for Barack Obama to be a natural born citizen, BOTH parents have to be born in the country the child is born in. So either the military arrests this man known as Barack Obama, or they make the so called President resign for being a………………………………………….

…..In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest. Activists remove the chief of police and either disarm local police and county sheriff departments or discourage them from interfering.

In truth, this is hardly necessary. Many law enforcement officials already are sympathetic to the tea party’s agenda, know many of the people involved, and have made clear they will not challenge the takeover.

The militia members are organized and have a relatively well thought-out plan of action.With Darlington under their control, militia members quickly move beyond the city limits to establish “check points” – in reality, something more like choke points — on major transportation lines.

There is only one way to stop Hillary Clinton

By Lawrence Sellin

***

If current political trends continue, there are two inescapable outcomes: Hillary Clinton will be elected President in 2016 and, by the end of her eight years in office, the United States will no longer exist.

The Democrat electoral juggernaut cannot be stopped for two reasons.

First, the Democrats seem to have perfected the art of voter fraud and it may now be considered an integral component of their national campaign strategy. The results of the 2012 election suggest that massive voter fraud is not required. Selective alteration of the count in specific precincts of large swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida would be enough. That might help explain why Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton are vehemently opposed to voter ID requirements.

In parallel, the mainstream media will censor or manipulate the news in order to promote Hillary’s political ambitions, even at the expense of their own journalistic integrity and the well-being of the country.

How the American Republic Died at Philadelphia in 1787….. | The PPJ Gazette

It is generally supposed, by most Americans, that the Constitution is the founding document of this nation. It is not. In fact, the United States of America was founded with the ratification of our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union (Articles of Confederation, for short) on March 1, 1781.

It depicts members of the Continental Congress in conference (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

 

This document was written to secure a union between the original thirteen states and it was written by the states, for the states. In other words, the states created the central government, which consisted of nothing more than a very weak unicameral Congress, composed of not less than two and no more than seven representatives from each state.

The original intent, as laid out in the Articles, was “a firm league of friendship with each other, for their common defense, the security of their liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other, against all force offered to, or attacks made upon them, or any of them, on account of religion, sovereignty, trade, or any other pretense whatever.”

A reader of one of my articles on the Second Amendment had suggested that I read a rather obscure book titled, Hologram of Liberty, by Kenneth W. Royce (AKA Boston T. Party) and he used the term (coined by Royce), parchment worship while mentioning this book to me.

Well, I had already been vaguely aware that there was some sort of intrigue going on back in 1787 when the Constitution was written to supplant the allegedly inadequate Articles of Confederation, and I had heard it had something to do with some sort of scurrilous moves by the Federalists, lead by Alexander Hamilton, who were either infiltrated by Freemasons or were Freemasons, themselves (actually, as it turns out, so were some of the Anti-Federalists). But, that was all I could recall about it, having heard about this, initially, some thirty years ago.

Well, my thanks go out to that reader for reawakening me to this and I have now looked into the book he suggested, though I haven’t yet got a copy of it for myself. I did, however, visit the Javelin Press website, where there is a pretty fair amount of information about the book, including the following, which I have excerpted:

“Civic Belief #1: The Congress was given few specific powers. All else was left to the States and to the people under the 10th Amendment. Ample checks and balances protect the Republic from federal tyranny.

Is There a Constitution? – by Joseph Stromberg… “…that Madison swindled the ratifiers, and that this Original Swindle justifies all later swindles by Presidents, Congresses, and Courts. One might beg to differ. Indeed, the original understanding – decisively shaped by the propaganda of Madison, Hamilton, and Jay in the Federalist Papers – was fairly straightforward. The Constitution was, on the reading “sold” by the Constitution’s backers, a document which set up a few rules for the working of a general government for the common interests of the states. The Constitution would exist “between” the ratifying states; it was not set “over” them by a higher power.”

This should hardly come as a surprise to those high-minded liberals who have been hawking the virtues of a flexible, plastic, evolving Constitution for many decades. Yet, some of them, out of sheer sentimentality as regards the First Amendment, would now draw back from the militarist abyss lately reopened by the current administration in the name of Homeland Security.

Such liberal dissenters have not attended the many lectures offered by Neo-Conservative spokesmen like Jay Winik, the gist of which is that we can give up many of our civil liberties for the duration of the Emergency and then get them back again, only slightly wrinkled and stained. Since other low-minded Neo-Con spokesmen have announced that the Emergency may go on for decades, the exact date at which this fairy-tale ending – the return of liberty – will occur is left hanging in the Hegelian breeze. Perhaps the Neos should coordinate their propaganda a bit more tightly.

The Trouble With the Constitution… by Joseph R. Stromberg – “All across the American political spectrum, politicians and would-be opinion-molders clutch the United States Constitution to their bosoms and proclaim their unswerving loyalty to it and the vision of society, which they find therein. Left-liberals love the old parchment for the penumbras, emanations, and constructible silences and absences they espy in it. Oddly, for them the Constitution always seems to require that we immediately implement advanced social democracy and radical egalitarianism, lest Little Jamie Madison should start spinning in his grave.

On the right, one finds vastly different readings of the Constitution, but just as much professed loyalty to the old grocery list — a loyalty often resting on premises almost as dubious as those of the left-liberals. Here I have in mind Straussians, Neo-Conservatives, and all their heirs and assigns. Only on the hard left and hard right, do we fight what might be called realistic assessments of the Constitution’s original bearing and meaning. Of course, that said, the hard right and left hardly draw the same conclusions from their respective realistic analyses.

Oleg Ivutin, owner of Cross Country Supply, stands in the company’s Mableton distribution warehouse in March. Ivutin spoke to Georgia Tea Party members Thursday, warning of similarities between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union.

MARIETTA — As guest speaker at the Marietta-based Georgia Tea Party on Thursday, Oleg Ivutin of Smyrna warned of growing similarities between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union where he grew up.

The U.S. is on a “fast track” to becoming an authoritarian government like the U.S.S.R., said Ivutin, a businessman who challenged Joe Dendy as chairman of the Cobb GOP in March.

Under communist rule, the Russian police spied on people, collecting files to use against them. Neighbors were encouraged to report on neighbors. Ivutin sees similarities between what happened in Russia and what is happening here. The KGB never had it so easy, he said.

……The “Founding Lawyers” of 1787 left the federal fleas in control of their own flea powder, and that’s why we have an unchallengeable government today. Cleverly designed to be weak, the Constitution is more form than substance, or else Freedom would ring in America.Kenneth Royce proves that the States and the American people were politically “checkmated” 210 years ago, and discusses his three peaceful solutions prior to the imminent insurrection now brewing.

Hologram of Liberty is truly the groundbreaking, vital analysis of the Constitution.It is astonishing that this book, given its age, isn’t the cornerstone of every libertarian or liberty event in the country. It is disturbing that so few people involved in those movements have read it, or in some cases, even heard about it. Neither had I, of course, but I was blown away when I read it.

Now, many things make more sense, including the gut-level triteness of most neo-patriots, who cheer something they haven’t taken the time to fully understand. Yet, this book explains why the protections of the Constitution necessarily shrink over time, while the powers expand without bound. Boston clearly explains why our current political environment is a direct consequence of the Constitution, and not in spite of it.Oh, and for all you veterans of which I am one, as readers of Starving the Monkeys know all too well, remember that oath you took to the Constitution? Your oath was obtained by fraud, and as such, you are ethically released from any obligation to it.

Civic Belief #1: The Congress was given few specific powers. All else was left to the States and to the people under the 10th Amendment. Ample checks and balances protect the Republic from federal tyranny.

Civic Belief #2: The Federal Government has become so powerful only because despotic officials have overstepped their strict, constitutional bounds.

If #1 is true, then how did #2 happen?

What’s more powerful, the right to complain about government, or the right to reform it? Clearly, one right is more powerful, and indeed it’s that one which makes an American citizen who and what they are – a member of a society with the power to alter or abolish what it dislikes about government.

You’ll find very few Americans today who want to abolish the government we have, the one with three branches – legislative, executive, and judicial. What the vast majority want is to keep what we have, but address concerns regarding how it currently operates.

Liberty and safety — the debate kicked off by Edward Snowden continues | Fox News

July 26, 2013 2 comments

When Edward Snowden revealed that the federal government, in direct defiance of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, was unlawfully and unconstitutionally spying on all Americans who use telephones, text messaging or emails to communicate with other persons, he opened a Pandora’s box of allegations and recriminations.

The allegations he unleashed are that Americans have a government that assaults our personal freedoms, operates in secrecy and violates the Constitution and the values upon which it is based. The recriminations are that safety is a greater good than liberty, and Snowden interfered with the ability of the government to keep us safe by exposing its secrets, and so he should be silenced and punished.

The executive branch coup against America has succeeded. The American people have suffered a coup d’etat, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere “scrap of paper.”

 

An unconstitutional government is an illegitimate government. The oath of allegiance requires defense of the Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” As the Founding Fathers made clear, the main enemy of the Constitution is the government itself. Power does not like to be bound and tied down and constantly works to free itself from constraints.

 

The basis of the regime in Washington is nothing but usurped power. The Obama Regime, like the Bush/Cheney Regime, has no legitimacy. Americans are oppressed by an illegitimate government ruling, not by law and the Constitution, but by lies and naked force. Those in government see the US Constitution as a “chain that binds our hands.”

…and why the Declaration of Independence is more important then them both:

Johnsson: Do you agree with Ron Paul that we should go by the Constitution and that’s it?

Rockwell: The Constitution would be a major improvement over what we have today. But we need to realize that the Constitution itself represented a major increase in government power over the Articles of Confederation, which would have served us quite well had it not been overthrown.

I’m not impressed by the bunch that foisted the Constitution on us.

They were really up to no good.

We’ve all but forgotten that most everyone opposed it at the time. It only squeaked through once the Bill of Rights was tacked on.

The Bill of Rights isn’t perfect, but it at least had the advantage of spelling out what the government could not do.

The Preamble explicitly declares that “We the people…do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

 

The federal government is entirely a creature of the Constitution. It is a government of delegated powers, possessing no authority not expressly or by implication granted to it by the instrument that created it.

 

Edwin Vieira notes that, without exception, “We the people” are the sole source of whatever legal status the Constitution, the federal government and public officials have. “We the people,” therefore, are personally responsible for maintaining and protecting the Constitution and seeing to its enforcement even when the government, as an institution, proves to be impotent and our representatives are incompetent or dishonest. The republic could fall through domestic usurpation and tyranny when evil or misguided men corrupt, subvert and pervert the government by misusing the law to break the law, while, simultaneously, claiming to act under the law and in the interest of the American people.

Conspiracy and the Constitution… “Where Smith had taken the first tentative steps towards working out an economic and political conspiracy thesis concerning the establishment of the Constitution, Algie Simons in 1912 presented this new interpretation quite forcefully, saying: “The organic law of this nation was formulated in secret session by a body called into existence through a conspiratory trick, and (it) was forced upon a disfranchised people by means of dishonest apportionment in order that the interests of a small body of wealthy rulers might be served.”2″

EXCERPT !!!!!

…..Smith was even more alarmed by what he thought were the antidemocratic sentiments of the delegates. Whereas he had only intimated at a possible conspiracy along economic lines, he more fully developed the notion that there was a political conspiracy.

He charged that “democracy … was not the object which the framers of the American Constitution had in view, but the very thing they wished to avoid … the efforts of the Constitutional Convention were directed to the task of devising a system of government which was just popular enough not to excite popular opposition and which at the same time gave the people as little as possible of the substance of political power.”1

Painted as radicals and racists by some, this organization of law enforcement officers and military vets says its only purpose is to uphold the Constitution.

 

It started with Katrina. The sight of U.S. military troops, law enforcement officers, and armed government contractors seizing firearms from citizens in the aftermath of that terrible storm shocked the conscience of Yale constitutional law scholar Stewart Rhodes.

 

That these actions were later recognized as wrong by the U.S. Supreme Court did little to assuage Rhodes’ concerns.

 

 

 

 

 

The fact remained that an illegal precedent had taken place, and could well occur again; indeed, it appeared that that the seeds sown in Louisiana might not only take root, but germinate elsewhere, as well.
