Mark Levin Refuted: Keep the Feds in Check with Nullification, not Amendments !


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

 

What follows in the piece below written by Publius Hudah is and exchange between constitutional scholar and “another,” read more to find out who wins.

In the video included, the Tenth Amendment Center, through talk show host, Tom Woods  takes Levin, the self-annointed “Great one” to task with a $10,000 challenge to debate him, the loser paying to the others favorite charity.

This is and excellent piece once again H/T to Brea for the great lead. 

 

By Publius Huldah from her website.IMG_1402

What Mark Levin says in “The Liberty Amendments” in support of an Article V convention is not true.1

 

 

We note that the Oath of Office requires obedience to the Constitution alone.  The Oath does not require obedience to persons, to any agency of the federal government, or to any federal court.

We understand that resistance to tyranny is a natural right – and it is a duty.

On one side of this controversy are those who want to restore our Constitution by requiring federal and State officials to obey the Constitution we have; or by electing ones who will.  We show that the Oath of Office at Art. VI, last clause, requires federal 2 and state officials to support the Constitution.  This requires them to refuse to submit to – to nullify – acts of the federal government which violate the Constitution.  This is how they “support” the Constitution.

We have read original writings of our Framers and know what our Framers actually told the States to do when the federal government violates the Constitution: Nullification of the unlawful act is among the first of the recommended remedies – not one of which is “amendment of the Constitution”.

It is already proved in James Madison Rebukes Nullification Deniers, that our Framers endorsed nullification by States of unconstitutional acts of the federal government.  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison summed it up as follows:

“…when powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the act”4 is “the natural right, which all admit to be a remedy against insupportable oppression…” 5

The claims of the nullification deniers have been proven to be false.  To persist in those claims – or to do as Levin seems to do and ignore the remedy of nullification – is intellectually and morally indefensible.  So why don’t they apologize to the public and recant their errors?

Instead, they continue to tell us that what we need is a “convention of the States” (which Levin and his mentors insist is provided by Article V of the Constitution) to propose amendments to the Constitution, and that this is the only way out.

Yes, they tell us, the only way to deal with a federal government which consistently ignores and tramples over the Constitution is …. to amend the Constitution!

Do you see how silly that is?

 Levin’s Amendments

Levin starts his book by saying how bad things are and how the federal government has trampled and mangled the Constitution.  Those pages are true.  And they serve the purpose of making readers believe that Levin is “on our side”.  And because of that, many are induced to lay aside their critical thinking skills and accept on trust what Levin tells them. That is a deadly mistake.

Levin’s amendments actually gut our Constitution.  Most increase the powers of the federal government by making lawful what is now unconstitutional because it is not an “enumerated power”. Others put a band-aid on a problem without solving the problem. The amendments pertaining to “overrides” undermine the Constitution as the Objective Standard of what is lawful and what is not – and substitute majority vote therefor. 6

A Defective Constitution? Or a Disobedient Federal Government?

We must distinguish between defects within a Constitution, and a government’s refusal to obey the Constitution to which it is subject.  These are different problems calling for different remedies.

FBI agent’s sniper rifle stolen out of car’s safe through the WINDOW at Salt Lake City hotel… just days before President Obama’s Utah visit


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Me thinks the police officer in the video below, has protested too much about the weapon being secured properly.

If it had been would it have been taken from the car?

slc-sniper-threat

Also of note, why was the policeman involved not instructed not to leave his weapon in his car in a high theft area?

Wouldn’t that be standard operating procedure to put the rifle in it’s carrying case and take it to the hotel?

It likely will be now.

April 25, 2015

You are right Ms. Brea you can’t make this stuff up.

Well, maybe one can !  What if someone heard the officer involved had planned to take Obama out making himself infamous, like, John Wilkes Booth and JFK’s wrongly accused and murdered Lee Harvey Oswald? 

Of course this is said in jest, the only way Obama must leave office is by legal means.

An FBI agent’s sniper rifle (similar to the one pictured) was ripped out of his car’s windowvideo-undefined-27FFC99D00000578-369_638x358 and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot 

An FBI agent’s sniper rifle was ripped out of his car’s window and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot just days before President Obama visited Utah earlier this month.

The gun was inside a hard rifle case and was ‘secured properly’ to a truck safe with padlocks and chains while the car was parked at the Marriott Springhill Suites, according to police.

Police believe the thief stole the rifle by breaking the rear right passenger-side window, tying a rope around the rifle case’s handle or a cable lock, and using the momentum from another vehicle to then break the case’s handle free from the lock.

The window frame of the agent’s car was pulled from the door, which police believe could indicate the large case was ripped through the shattered window.

‘The rifle had been secured properly,’ Salt Lake City Police Detective Dennis McGowan told Fox 13 Salt Lake City.

‘There are all kinds of ways the weapon was secure. Yet someone was able to forcefully take the weapon.’ 

The FBI agent also reported that his gear bag, backpack, and some clothing and tools were also stolen during the March 27 theft, which the police report states happened overnight.

Spain: Barcelona’s Would-Be Beheaders

Wow ! this is an extra special brand of psychopathic killers, they let women they capture live so they can sell them into sex slavery. 

Those who go to commit jihad against the U.S. and coalition partners must have their passports immediately revoked, thus keeping them in the sand land of their choice with no option for legal return.

The current administration, filled with Muslims and Muslim sympathizers must be removed and the Republican nomination for the White House must win the presidency for there to be noticeable change.

Convention of States Use Alinsky Tactics in Attempt to Destroy our Republic


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot. 

The entire Obama administration has been run onAlinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

The goal being to bring our constitutionally driven republic down by creating mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peaceThis utopian concept has worked exactly where?

When Alinsky tactics and the evil doer George Soros47e27b7b7d5ee15d15013ccc8b2661e387fb0658 are involved, this must be stopped.

H/T Brea, Guest Editor
publius-huldahPublius Huldah is an unsung hero who words tirelessly and without pay.
The people behind the Article 5 Convention are receiving thousands in donations and doing nothing to restore our republic.

Why in heaven’s name would a REAL patriot support something that is supported by the likes of George Soros? Unless there is a quid pro quo?Everyone of us should fear an Article V constitutional convention. 

I have been reading and thinking about such an event for more than a couple of years now.  I do not think there is any way to control who would run it and what the results would be.

On Publius Huldah:  She  is a retired litigation attorney who now lives in Tennessee. Before getting a law degree, she got a degree in philosophy where she specialized in political philosophy and epistemology (theories of knowledge).

She now writes extensively on the U.S. Constitution, using the Federalist Papers to prove its original meaning and intent.

She shows how federal judges and politicians have ignored Our Constitution and replaced it with their personal opinions and beliefs. She also shows how The People can, by learning our Founding Principles themselves, restore our Constitutional Republic.

Remember, our current constitution was written  under the guise of repairing the flaws of the Articles of Confederation.  Our founding fathers were not charged with writing a whole new constitution.
We are just lucky that those members of the constitutional convention were so wise and left us with the greatest government ever devised.

“There are many ways of abetting; urge and help on, or taking part in the sins of others; by commendation, counsel, consent, or concealment [silence]. And if we share with others in their sins, we must expect to share in their plagues. If we do not reprove the sins of others, we have fellowship with them.

A good man will be ashamed to speak of what many wicked men are not ashamed to do. We must have not only a sight and knowledge that sin is sin, and in some measure shameful, but see it as a breach of God’s holy law. After the example of prophets and apostles, we should call on those asleep and dead in sin, to awake and arise, that Christ may give them light.” Mathew Henry” And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Eph 5:11).

The Conundrum: A paradoxical look at socialism


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

An excellent paradox is presented below on socialism.  The nonsense they spew and their ill-conceived plans are nothing more than lies.

Predictably they fail to contemplate the unintended consequences of their delusions, illustrated by the graphic below.

      The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or  confusing.

      Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

      1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.

      2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

      3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

      4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

      5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in  other countries only dream about.

      6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about –  yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

       Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in  the 21st Century.

       Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

      These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our  current government and cultural environment:

      1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few  lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions  of a few lunatics.
       Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering…

      2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run  out of money.  But we never hear about welfare 

      or  food stamps running  out of money?  What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

       

       Think about it…..and Last but not least,

      3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our  military and cutting our army to a level lower than  

           before WWII, but  we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens?  
       

        Am I the only one missing something?

Foreign Nationals Stealing Our Elections?


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

How can at least half the voters in America, those able to think coherently, not be concerned about the integrity of our elections?

                                                                                                                                                                   

With the current socialist, progressive mind-set that has captured what once was your father’s Democrat Party, an anything goes attitude prevails and malfeasance, money laundering, dishonest voting along with voter registration, rule the day. Illegal-campaign-fundraising-blackbook

Factor in preprogrammed voting machines that can switch votes by someone with a computer sitting in his car and doing so.

Remember, it was Joseph Stalin who said ” The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.

We have little doubt that election integrity measures, especially in these days of open borders and mass illegal immigration, are essential to clean elections.  That’s why we felt it important to join with the Allied Educational Foundation to file an amici curiae brief with the United States Supreme Court in support of Arizona’s and Kansas’ efforts to add proof-of-citizenship requirements to a federal voter registration form (Kris W. Kobach, et al., v. U. S. Election Assistance Commission, et al., (No. 14-1164)).  

This important brief argues that if a lower court ruling is permitted to stand, it will “undermine voter confidence in the integrity of elections:”

If states cannot verify the citizenship of those registering to vote, citizens may have their votes cancelled out by unlawful ballots cast in the names of noncitizens.  The mere threat of this outcome will undermine voters’ confidence that elections are being conducted fairly and honestly, discouraging those voters from voting at all and thereby burdening their right to vote.

Marines may be forced to lower standards to appease Obama


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot. 

Those who know me I’m 100% for women being the best they can be, Special Ops, why not?

0000be0c_medium-1As long as this numbskull ruling is reversed there are a number of women who when trained could become Rangers, serve as interpreters, talking to women and asking questions, that men can’t comfortably ask.

It’s also the best way to get promoted to flag rank as in becoming a General.

Obama probably thinks “What difference does it make.” He came to office with zero qualifications and became the biggest failure in U.S. History.

This is perfect, destroying our armed forces from within.

The military now may lower standards to make sure they have more women serving. They should not. Not at all.

You can argue if women should be in the military, or if women are physically equal to men.

It is true that men have more muscle mass than women, in general.

There are many statistics to throw around. The left always yells, “equality!”

An IOC diploma is a must to earn the designation of infantry officer. Of 29 women who tried, none graduated; only four made it through the first day’s combat endurance test.  The pressure is on from the White House’s “politically correct” agenda.

51000761-women-train-to-become-u-s-marines-gettyimages
 The real issue should be “equal opportunity.” If a woman wants to join the military, God bless. If anyone wants to join the military, God bless! Here’s the thing, this is national defense.

The best of the best defend and fight for the United States of America everyday, and we cannot lower the standards just to be “politically correct” and to appease feminists. If you want to join the military, pass the ammunition.

Red Flag Alert

-1

Recently we reportedbeb8f37ac3c843dc562061aa9cc02275 about the results of female Marines seeking to complete the Marine Infantry Officer Course (IOC) — ZERO — as well as female Marines attending Infantry Training Battalion, School of Infantry-East. We also compared that with the Army and females being allowed entry into the Ranger Training Assessment Course (RTAC) and that twelve will be going onto Army Ranger training. 

Well, it seems the Marines have drawn the ire of the Obama administration via the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Dempsey. That’s just not the result Obama was looking for.As reported by the Washington Times, “Two years ago, Army General Martin Dempsey, the nation’s top military officer, laid down an edict on the Obama administration’s plan to open direct land combat jobs to women: If women cannot meet a standard, senior commanders better have a good reason why it should not be lowered. 

Today, the “Dempsey rule” appears to have its first test case. The Marine Corps just finished research to see if female officers could successfully complete its rigorous Infantry Officer Course. The IOC diploma is a must to earn the designation of infantry officer. Of 29 women who tried, none graduated; only four made it through the first day’s combat endurance test.” 

“Marine Corps public affairs said it did not have the data on which tasks proved the toughest for women. But one particularly demanding upper-body strength test is climbing a 25-foot rope with a backpack full of gear. A candidate who cannot crawl to the top fails the test. Traditionalists see the 0-29 performance as a call to arms by those inside the Pentagon who are determined to have significant numbers of women in the infantry. They are on the lookout for standards they believe are no longer relevant in today’s battlefield.” 

“The pressure is on the services from the White House’s politically correct crowd vis-a-vis Obama’s Pentagon appointees, who will force the services to accept degraded standards,” said Robert Maginnis, a retired Army officer and author of the book “Deadly Consequences: How Cowards Are Pushing Women Into Combat.”

So will the U.S. Marine Corps be forced to justify why its IOC training is so hard? Will they have to go before the Sanhedrin of the Pharisees of political correctness and explain why anyone needs to be able to climb a rope with a full gear pack? Will the Commandant of the Marine Corps be called into General Dempsey’s office and be forced to explain every single standard of the Marine IOC and justify its existence? Will the Corps be forced to surrender its standards of excellence?

“General Dempsey laid down the law this way: “If we do decide that a particular standard is so high that a woman couldn’t make it, the burden is now on the service to come back and explain to the secretary, why is it that high? Does it really have to be that high?”

Am I making this stuff up? Sadly, no.

“Capt Maureen Krebs, a Marine Corps spokeswoman, said the ongoing review of standards is a double-check to make sure each one is specific to a particular job, is relevant to the operation and is “gender-neutral” — meaning each one must be the same for men and women. “We’re looking at all of our standards for the ground combat arms right now to ensure that they hit all three of those requirements,” she said.

There you have it folks, we are moving towards a military that is gender-neutral — the objective of social egalitarians. To them, the military is just like any occupation. Everyone should have equal outcomes and equality of access regardless of the mission. Anything else just isn’t fair.

What is not fair is that we have a bunch of absent-minded civilian ideologues who want a ground-breaking, historic moment. You can just bet there will be a female to pass Army Ranger School — and she will be on the cover of Time magazine, all over the mainstream media, and of course will get a Rose Garden ceremony. Recently I spoke to a young man, an Infantry officer, who was to attend Ranger school but was told there wasn’t an available slot. I wonder why?

ISIS is beheading Christians and driving civilians from Ramadi. Meanwhile, the Obama administration is questioning the standards for the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course.

Unbelievable !
