A major campaign promise of President Donald Trump was to “drain the swamp” in Washington DC but anyone the least bit familiar with the Constitution as designed by the Founders understands that it automatically does this if adhered to strictly, which neither major political party has done for most of a century. That is why we have the swamp to
The bureaucracy is out of control enlarging itself at every turn. Decades ago Congress got lazy and started creating unelected organizations to administer and create the details of a law, thus thousands of “little laws” (“regs,” short for regulations) emerged—often giving the law a twist never intended by the original bill. A prominent housing contractor once noted that one-third of
Since countries have been slow to forfeit their national sovereignty to the UN, proponents next encouraged regional governments—uniting countries into geographical units, as for example the European Union, then later, when peoples and nations get used to this power transfer, unite them then into a single political unit. Currently there are 23 such regional agreements each at a different stage
For readers who do not understand the international trade deals of the last 25 years, notably NAFTA, GATT and TPP, you will never fully grasp what President Donald J. Trump has just done for the Constitution and against the proponents of globalism. In his first day in office, pulling the United States out of the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership, he
Summary on Use the Constitution to Recover Confiscated State Land Utah stands out in its desire to retain public land not given it when it became a state and in using original intent in interpreting the Constitution, but her leaders do not understand the Constitution well enough to see that the Constitution already corrects the problem if used as designed.
On December 28, 2016, Barack Obama created the Bears Ears National Monument in Southeastern Utah and the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada just northeast of the outskirts of Las Vegas. He used the 1906 Antiquities Act to set aside 1.35M acres, property larger than the state of New Hampshire. Despite the clarity of the Constitution on land ownership succeeding
Pease explains how Sections 1021-1022 of The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) funding national defense and updated every December, violates Article III, Sections 2 and 3. “No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” It also emasculates Amendments 4, 5, 6 and 8
On December 31, 2011, New Year’s Eve, President Barack Obama signed into law the most constitutionally damaging law in American history, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. This New Year’s Eve we note its 5th Anniversary. It potentially gutted the Bill of Rights for American citizens thought by the President to be assisting the enemy. This has so upset
The country is now almost 20 trillion dollars in debt. Many erroneously believe that the only way to solve this problem is to increase taxes rather than to cut spending. Judging by extreme laws passed and proposed in recent years, including the 15% Christmas Tree Tax unsuccessfully advocated by President Obama in 2011, a tax on Christmas could come true.
American cities are in rebellion. Since the election of Donald Trump, mayors have lined up by the dozens and announced that they will not assist the federal government in the deportation of illegals. Universities followed, declaring themselves off-limits to federal law. None of this is protected by the Constitution. But now California is using the Tenth Amendment, the nullification doctrine,
Those who understand the Constitution know that the election of the president does not actually happen until December, this year the 19th, and never in November. They also know that a popular vote has never been legitimized by the Constitution or any amendment to it. In fact, the people as individuals are actually excluded. We have discussed why in previous
In the 2016 presidential race Trump’s projected win is 306 electoral votes to Clinton's 232, but Clinton bested Trump with 1 1/2 million more popular votes out of 125,505,086 cast for the two. The divide is a little over one percent. Imagine the endless recounts, accusations of voter fraud that would have to be investigated, and the time to determine
Socialism was one of the casualties of this presidential election. No two presidential candidates have been more socialistic than Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, and half of America voted for it. Keeping Obamacare and instituting “free college” would have made it very difficult to argue that we had not become a socialist country. This is despite the harsh lessons of
In the third of three presidential debates Chris Wallace asked Hillary Clinton if there were any limits on abortion for her. “You have been quoted as saying that the fetus has no constitutional rights. You also voted against a ban on late-term, partial-birth abortions.” In response to the same question Donald Trump responded. “Well, I think it’s terrible. If you
