Starting nearly from scratch to uncover the truth of the Constitution, and constructing a pathway forward through the constitutional crises we face, author Martin Babitz begins with a basic question, and an answer:
“if our federal government can do whatever it deems proper, controlled only by our mere right to elect or re-elect certain officials every few years, what makes our system different, providing greater liberty than all the others that have free elections but are dominated by a supreme national government? Nothing.”
We have been taught to believe that federal power is limited only by ‘checks and balances’ among branches of government against each other, and the authority of the people to elect officials in those branches every few years. Indeed, judicial decision-making regarding standing in the constitutional case of Obama’s usurpation confirms this view: this critical issue is relegated to the ballot box (via the political question) or dismissed due to some fictional standing argument about the branches of government.
The problem for the government and the justices is that the people are waking up. We get it now, so no amount of bamboozling is going to put us back to sleep.
The Big Lies that Control
Lie No. 2. Federal Supremacy: think Obama v. Arizona, again using our tax dollars and his usurped power to attack us.
At the heart of the lies that control the people is the one that states the federal government has supremacy over state government and its right to absolutely invalidate state laws in its sole discretion. This is known as the ‘federal supremacy clause’, though I know of no such ‘clause’ in the Constitution and now know its a lawyer’s invention.
The testing of this principle is in full view right now as the Obama (mal)administration prepares to sue Arizona over its immigration law. Every other aggressive action, including the health care bill, industrial limitations, drilling bans, economic hardship, and forced income taxes, can also be seen as the ‘institutionalization’ of federal supremacy while they have the crop of judges in place to do so.
With specific respect to Arizona, it is imperative that every state in the Union join Arizona as against the federal government. Each state governor, attorney general, and state legislator needs to be pressured to join Arizona.
While democrats and republicans will voice concerns over the lawsuit, it is only because it could jeopardize their political chances in upcoming elections.
Don’t forget Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution:
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
This includes protecting the states from invasion and aggressive action from the federal government. This would also prohibit, in my opinion, the wholesale conversion of state economies to socialism, or the invasion of ‘world policies’ into state governments.
Make no mistake: Obama, the democrats, and the republican enablers are all in the midst of a wholesale assault on every aspect of American society and our Constitutional Republic. For what? Control, money and power. Crass, obtuse, in-humane.
Lie No. 3: The Supreme Court Reigns
A lie that goes hand in hand with the lie of ‘federal supremacy’, according to Babitz , is the one that suggests that
the United States Supreme Court has unilateral authority over the meaning of the Constitution, including the power to construct’ it beyond recognition and usurp reserved sovereign powers from the states and their people.
The famous case of Marbury v. Madison is often cited as the “rationale’ for this lie…the case is often referred to the seminal case in which the Supreme Court exercised its right to review actions of Congress for consistency with the Constitution.
But that was when the constitution actually meant something, in 1803. One wonders if this case triggered the original Thirteenth Amendment, which would have prevented lawyers from serving in government. Certainly the Supreme Court and case law has had a dramatic effect on the people’s understanding of the Constitution. Think of whole generations of lawyers in the United State trained to undermine the Constitution! No wonder only a handful stand right now.
Should the Supreme Court rule on the NBC definition, in light of their definite role in allowing this constitutional crisis to unfold? Especially with the effort to plant decidedly anti-American and unconstitutional people to the court by the unconstitutional Obama?
Babitz notes that words must “have fixed meanings in order to convey definite concepts”, such as that of ‘natural born citizen’. As Attorney Mario Apuzzo has pointed out, the words “natural born citizen”, which convey a concept to ensure a national security safeguard in the Commander in Chief position, had and continues to have definite, discernible meaning. That we all defer to the Supreme Court to decide this meaning, in such a dangerous time as today, just shows how deep this lie has penetrated our entire paradigm.
I know the Founders did not write those specific words with the intent that 233 years later, we would all of a sudden claim ignorance and need a battery of lawyers to figure that term out. The Courts have behaved in a manner that invents a problem in interpretation and standing to avoid the constitution’s clear meaning.
Lie No. 4: Government can take and redistribute your property at will.
At the heart of the socialist direction of the demo-communists and usurper Obama is the lie that our
property can be taken and redistributed at will by the federal government , either by direct means of taxation and expenditures, or through control and manipulation of the economy and money supply.
The serious market manipulation began it seems with Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the illegal 16th Amendment. When the people and the states became too prosperous, the government invaded. I should really say that the corporations and the money men, who bought the politicians in government to do their bidding, used their power to invade.
State governments, including governors, attorneys general, legislatures, mayors, county commissioners, all must begin to advise their constituents that participation in the income tax program is voluntary…it says so right on the form. Individuals must begin to grapple with the decisions necessary and preparations required to literally starve the federal beast to the best of their ability and circumstances.
With this much power amassed over decades, the federal government is an entity unto itself, accountable to no one. It has lost any authority it ever had as it has refused to be governed by its constituents.
Lie No. 5. The First Amendment and Bill of Rights only applies to State Governments, not the federal government.
The First Amendment lie is a big one, which asserts that the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights serve only to protect individuals from the state government, not the federal government. Although I don’t think this lie is as ingrained as it could be, in that most people recognize the Bill of Rights as our rights vis a vis the federal government, there are a ‘long train of abuses’ that suggest the politicians have been undermining our rights for a very long period of time. To wit:
- Over 15 years of consistent petitioning of the Government to respond to grievances regarding the war powers, taxation, spending,foreign policy, and the illegally instituted amendments to the Constitution without any response. Such a response leads to basically the understanding that government does not care, and does not respond. Rather than being funny anymore, it is at the heart of our rights to have a responsive government, indeed, to govern our government!
- The creeping police state, and political correctness, the race card and outright racism, alinsky tactics, and the media used to ridicule, diminish, and eliminate dissent. Michelle Obama, the hateful spouse of the hateful usurper, recently made it clear that the role of black people is to use race and get more aggressive, aka, in your face, about…hmm, lets see, communism? Hate against white people? Anything other than the failure that is the Obamas in doing one single thing for black people in this country. Voicing dissent against obama is now the new ‘hate speech’.
- The absolute tyranny shown by Obama in every facet of American life since he took office, and the compliance of all three branches of government.
Knowing the Lies is the First Step
The first step in restoring our constitutional republic is acknowledging the lies, and coming to grips with how these have affected our lives. Be prepared, because,
The truth will set you free–but first it will piss you off (gloria steinhem)
Red Beckman’s Walls in Our Minds also focused on the lies we have been told, with an emphasis on how they have created barriers to the truth about who we are, our government, our responsibilities, and the yoke of slavery we all inhabit right now.
The test of this truth is not how we compare to others–being ‘more fortunate’. The test is truly whether we have liberty, and whether we even know what that truly is.
The out of control federal government has brought this to our doorsteps. It is time to bring it to theirs. There is only one way we can talk with the government, and that is when they put their violence away and start being Constitutionalists. To the federal government, reboottherepublic emphasizes:
