    • The speaker was not introduced. Who is she? Does she represent a particular organization? Is there contact info in case others would like to host an event with this lady as a featured speaker?

      • Hyatt, I am Publius Huldah – the speaker in the video you referenced.

        I represent our Founding Fathers, our Framers, those who died in our War for Independence, and all today who want to restore our Constitution and Founding Principles.

        I do not represent any particular organization.

        One may contact me here. My email is posted on the “contact” page.

  7. Nice speech! What was the context? It never really showed the audience so I couldn’t tell if you were talking to anyone important (haha).

    I came here to ask two questions:

    1) What is your opinion on the sixth amendment right recognizing assistance of counsel?

    2) How do you feel about Shelby County v Holder? While I disagree with section 5 and the entire VRA in principle, it seems like Congress does have the authority to pass this law, consistent with it being a “necessary and proper” exercise of their enumerated power to enforce the 14th and 15th amendments.

    Just curious.

    Comment by Ross | March 13, 2013 | Reply

    • Thank you, Ross!
      I was speaking to a group of citizens, 4 County Sheriffs, and a State legislator. All of them are important!

      1. I have no opinions on the 6th Amdt. I always say our precious opinions are worthless, we must go by what the Framers said!

      That said, I have never researched the 6th Amdt to find out why they thought it important to put in that the accused has the right to the Assistance of Counsel. Did the English criminal courts sometimes deny that right to defendants? Did they contemplate that defense lawyers would do it for free (pro bono); or that taxpayers would be forced to pay the defense lawyers? I don’t know since I never looked into this.

      The 1st 10 amendments applied only to restrict the powers of the federal government. NOT THE STATES who had their own Constitutions. For a correct statement of this original understanding that the bill of rights applied only to the federal government see Barron v. Baltimore (1833):

      The FACTS of the case are here: http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0032_0243_ZS.html
      The OPINION is here: http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0032_0243_ZO.html

      Of course, the supreme Court has since changed sides and has for a long time claimed that it has power to impose their views of the 1st 10 amendments on the States, as well as the federal government.

      One comment about pro bono work: Traditionally, defense lawyers saw it as their professional duty to take the occasional pro bono case. As a former criminal defense lawyer, I agree that we have the duty to take the occasional pro bono criminal defense case.

      Also, remember that if Congress only made criminal laws about matters they had constitutional authority to make laws about, the federal criminal bar would have VERY LITTLE TO DO! http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2009/06/29/us-criminal-code/

      2. I haven’t read Shelby County v. Holder. Save me some time, and give me the gist of it and the particular issues in which you are interested.

      Comment by Publius Huldah | March 15, 2013 | Reply

      • You surprise me again! I had anticipated you disliking the 6th amendment right to counsel given that it cuts against the Randian moral formula– *someone* has to be forced to provide that defense, and their fundamental rights are trampled. I guess if the Framers were saying that no one will be *forbidden* from having council, rather than that taxpayers must provide council, it would make more sense.

        Shelby County v Holder is the case in which Shelby County, Alabama is challenging section 5 of the voting rights act, which requires them and other covered jurisdictions to get preclearance any time that they wish to change *anything* regarding their voting laws. They claim that Congress used a very old formula (1970s) to determine which areas are covered and that it damages the Federalist nature of our country to break jurisdictions into “covered” and “uncovered.” I’ve been reading the briefs and arguments and was hoping for your opinion, if you have one.

        Comment by Ross | March 16, 2013 | Reply

        • 1. Doctors sometimes treat people for free, at least they used to. Typically, lawyers are/were among the more privileged members of society; so defending the occasional defendant for free is something I, and many other lawyers, were most willing, from time to time, to do. Our love for Justice is supposed to be greater than our love for money.

          That said, no one should be forced to do pro bono work! But many lawyers would rather defend someone for free than see him unjustly treated in court.

          2. Of course, there is a distinctly Right and Wrong side on the voting laws conflict. Except as specifically delegated to the federal government by the 4 voting rights Amendments (freed slaves, women, people who don’t pay the tax, and people between 18-21), THE STATES RETAINED TOTAL POWER TO DETERMINE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF THOSE WHOSE WOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE. http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2010/12/05/arizonas-proposition-200-what-the-constitution-really-says-about-voter-qualifications-exposing-the-elections-clause-argument/

  16. The second amendment doesn’t give us the right to bear arms. We have that right, innately, as human beings. Whether you believe it is from God, or from nature; or Logic, order, and reason. EVERY person has the inalienable right to possess and bear any and all armaments necessary to provide for survival and liberty. What the second amendment does is tell the federal government not to infringe upon that inalienable, god-given, HUMAN right. It doesn’t give us anything, it takes AWAY, from the government, the ability to tread upon it.

    • AMEN, Hal! We must drive this Principle into the heads of our Countrymen. They have been indoctrinated with the LIE that our “rights” come from the Constitution – the “bill of rights”. But the “bill of rights” is entirely under the control of the federal judges!

      That is why I get so frustrated with the gullible and unthinking people who clamor for the parental rights amendment. They are so gullible that they believe that it is giving “constitutional protection” to their rights as parents. But what it actually does is turn children over to the tender mercies of the federal government. And our People have been so dumbded down by almost 200 years of progressive education that they can’t think.

      Alexander Hamilton warned in Federalist No. 84, around the 10th para, that a bill of rights – in a Constitution which delegates only narrowly defined and enumerated powers to the government – is DANGEROUS, as well as unnecessary. For it provides a pretext to regulate, for those inclined to usurp. He was so right!

  17. In addition to Mike’s link below to P.H.’s testimony to the TN Senate Judiciary Committee, the full hearing is available here: http://youtu.be/Vbcm5Uy0iTc FYI. Publius’ Q&A session with the Senators runs from 37:30 to 1:03:00, and directly follows her 6 minute statement.

    I found the whole thing intriguing, and think you all might as well. Aside from the wonderful substance of it, particularly enjoyable was when P.H. responded to a repeated push for her “opinion” by saying, “All I do is say what our framers said. This is not ever a matter of personal opinion. What did our framers say?” This is the root of it all, and it is all that we agreed to.

    It was encouraging, to me at least, the sense left by some Senators that constitutional limits on federal authority and state sovereignty matters.

    P.H., what was that Civil War line about? And Mr. Kelsey was downright rude to not let you finish your thoughts on the 1832 nullification controversy, and the distinction between dealing with bad constitutional law and dealing with unconstitutional law.

      “They” say that since the South lost the war for Southern Secession, no State can ever nullify anything the federal government ever does for the rest of time.

      Yes, Kelsey is a bully. Next time, I will lecture any such young man who treats me with such disrespect. I will inform him that I am a Lady, old enough to be his mother, and that he should treat old ladies with courtesy and respect. Old gentlemen also.

I have been trying to copy and fix the ones from the State of TN website, but its been difficult. If I can get them done would you be interested in putting them on your blog page? I sent a message to the State of TN website asking where the download page for the videos was, but have gotten no answer. I feel as if our tax money paid for the darned equipment to film it, so we deserve to be able to get a digital copy of any of the videotaped legislation.

  28. John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free

    We are experiencing desperate times. The confusion and moral breakdown of our society is leading us further and faster down the Road to Serfdom than anyone imagined possible. It is in this state of confusion and moral breakdown that petty dictators gain the power to manipulate and mislead as we see now in the everyday headlines.

    What created this state of confusion are the decades of frontal attacks on our Judeo-Christian heritage by those on the Left. The enemy of the two-bit tyrant is the clear thinking that our religious heritage provided to us generation after generation. In the environment of moral equivalency on every subject and manner, citizens lack the ability to measure and judge both their own values and those of their leaders.

    To quote John Adams, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” We are now getting the bitter taste of just how inadequate our Constitution has become in the face of this moral and religious decay and it is this that conservatives must address in order to restore our country to the greatness that our destiny demands.
