  1. How hard would it be too put together a course to educate? This day and age with go to meeting like programs…you could run education seminars.

    Then get those who are educated to all run for office at the federal level. If 100 ran and 50 won and you continue the cycle couldn’t you replace every representatives in just a few years and get us back on constitutional track?

    Just a thought.

    • Yes, what you propose is an excellent idea. Education is the Key. But we also have to change the mindset of the American People. During the latter part of the 19th Century, Americans abandoned the belief that they ought to adhere to external higher standards [The Constitution, the moral laws, fixed Truths, etc.], and adopted the idiotic belief that their own “opinions” and “feelings” are valid guides to action. I explain that here: https://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2011/03/06/how-progressive-education-and-bad-philosophy-corrupted-the-people-undermined-the-constitution-of-the-united-states/

      I knew a guy who wanted to run for Congress. I asked him if he knew the enumerated powers delegated to Congress, and would he adhere to the list of enumerated powers? He answered that no, he didn’t know what the Constitution said; if elected, he would be guided by his own common sense and the opinions of his friends.

      THAT is the mindset of virtually ALL of our elected politicians and appointed judges and executive officers, except that our politicians love bribes – I mean – large donations to their campaigns.

      So before they can learn the Constitution, they have to change their mindset so that they understand and accept that they must learn it so that they can obey it.

      But like original sin, instead of obeying God, men want to do what they want to do.

      So the question for us is: Are we willing to turn back before it’s too late? We are right now teetering on the edge.

      • I hear what you’re saying. I just find it hard to believe we couldn’t find 500 people put off 300million plus in our nation that would be willing to run and adhere to the constitution, and the founding principles.

        I would think with your site here and in your travels you would be able to recruit that many willing men.

        It’s sad if we can’t.

  2. PH, Hate to keep pestering you with this query, but I’m eager for your learned reply. As you know, Congress may attempt to pass a bill which enforces concealed carry reciprocity between the states. The NRA, of which I am a member, has come up with a twisted justification for such a federal mandate and, with your astute analysis, I want to reply to them, but also post the analysis on my blog and Facebook. NRA’s foundational argument is that passage of such a law is constitutional because without such a law it restricts free travel between the states. Obviously, a huge stretch. Hoping you can find the time to craft an analysis of such federal mandate. Thanks so much. You’re a breath of fresh air.

    • OK, I’ll do it now. can you save me some time and send me a link to the bill which Congress is looking at?

      The NRA is worse than worthless – there never existed a Principle which they weren’t eager to compromise. They have no understanding of our Founding Principles, our Constitution, etc. Surely there are better gun rights groups! They should be doing all this stuff. But they won’t – so I’ll do it.

      As Dr. Edwin Vieira pointed out in one of his articles on revitalizing the Militia, the NRA should be leading the charge for States to revitalize their State Militia – but the NRA doesn’t even respond to Dr. Vieira’s letters. There is a very bad man on the NRA’s Board of Directors [I can never think of his name], and apparently the rest of them are just zeros.

    • States, cities, counties, etc., are prohibited from entering into treaties! See Art. I, Section 10, US Constitution. Only the President and the US Senate have authority to enter into treaties (Art. II, Sec. 2, clause 2).

      Furthermore, the President and US Senate can only enter into treaties which address the enumerated powers delegated to the federal government. So the President and Senate can make treaties addressing, e.g., international copyright protection, because that is one of the enumerated powers (Art. I, Sec. 8, clause 8). But the US government has no authority to enter into treaties addressing “climate change” and such like because “climate” is not one of the powers delegated to the federal government.

      See? You didn’t need me to tell you that!

        • “Treason” is defined at Article III, Sec. 3, US Constitution. Signing on to the compact of mayors with the UN isn’t “treason” – but it is a violation of our federal Constitution.

          It’s a good thing if you go to a city meeting and protest this. Check the agenda of the city meetings to see when this will be brought up or how you can bring it up. And bring others with you – but don’t sit together, your allies should be scattered around the room and they should join in your protest against this unlawful act on the parts of the mayor.

          They can pass laws a regulation that follow the accord until such times as the feds pass a law or the courts say they can’t.

          • Hi, Boyd! Nice to hear from you.

            The distinction you make is well taken. But remember! All the actions local & state governments take to reduce “greenhouse emissions” have a dire effect on the citizens of the City and State. E.g., humans are THE biggest source of “greenhouse emissions”. Well, we know how to reduce those “greenhouse emissions”, don’t we? Kill some people – lots of them! The more people our governments kill, the better off the planet! http://www.worldwatch.org/node/563

            Do you see what is going on? Some people have an insatiable lust for killing other humans. The sociopaths and fools are in charge. The global warming hoax is the way to get rid of the excess people. And only the “superior” people, like Al Gore, will be left. And he’ll be so busy getting richer & richer by selling “carbon credits”.

            Um, from where did Al Gore obtain the “carbon credits” to sell?

If you compare the actions of the mayors and governors with the words of the statute, you see that their conduct does not fall within the reach of the statute!

          • Right! Cities and States may lawfully pass ordinances & statutes (applicable to their jurisdictions) addressing “greenhouse gas emissions” and such like – if permitted by their State Constitution. But they may NOT lawfully enter into agreements with foreign nations or with the United Nations addressing such subjects.

            We are witnessing right now the destruction of the United States, and our transformation into the global New World Order.

            Also: We are moving into a new Morality. Under the new morality, virtue is based on protecting the environment. Lying, stealing, adultery, sexual perversions, and such like, are now OK! What counts is, “Do YOU recycle?” “Are YOU exceeding your allotted carbon footprint?”

          • An “emolument” is a perk attached to an office. See Webster’s 1828 dictionary http://webstersdictionary1828.com/Dictionary/Emolument
            See also the Federalist Papers: I searched for “emoluments” and 12 Papers mention the term. http://www.foundingfathers.info/federalistpapers/

            “Emoluments” are mentioned at Art. I, Sec. 9, last clause, and at Art. II, Sec. 1, next to last clause.

            Art. I, Sec. 9, last clause, prohibits any federal officer from accepting (without the consent of Congress), any present, Emolument, Office, or Title from any foreign State.

            Art. II, Sec. 1, next to last clause, prohibits the President from receiving additional Emoluments from the United States or from any State.

            The Emoluments now attached to the office of Presidency include living in the White House, with a full staff, Air Force One, security protection, and such like. Those perks can’t be increased or decreased – by the United States or any of the 50 States. And Trump can’t get a job lobbying for any foreign State while he is President.

            But this has nothing to do with Trump’s private businesses! George Washington’s Mount Vernon was a large business enterprise selling whiskey, flour, and such like. When Washington’s farm sold its produce, the proceeds weren’t “emoluments” within the meaning of the Constitution – they were the income from his farm.

            It has been so long since we had a President who did something besides live off the taxpayers while in public office, that we have forgotten that real men can have successful businesses BEFORE they run for office. And the Constitution doesn’t require Presidents to divest themselves of their businesses.

            If a President should corruptly run his commercial business – say grant favors [made possible by his official position] to those who benefit his commercial business [you know, like Secretary of State Clinton apparently granted official favors to those who donated to the Clinton foundation], then Congress can impeach, try, convict, and remove him from office.

      In order to assess this organization, we need to see the NAMES OF THE PEOPLE BEHIND THIS!

      I am extremely suspicious of anyone who doesn’t disclose who they are but ASKS FOR MONEY. The website you linked to wants you to send money, but they don’t tell you who they are or how they will use the money.

      So if I had to guess, I’d guess it’s a scam.

Americans want to be rescued – they want to believe in a man on the white horse who will ride in and save them and our Country. So they want to believe that the “new guy” is the one who will save them.

  6. PH, you’re oh so terribly right. This is why I am a strong supporter of the Texas Nationalist Movement. (A wise citizen must always keep his/her options open.) If TNM ushers in an independent Republic of Texas, and if its leaders are willing to learn from the self-induced failures of the great “American Experiment”, and if TNM is committed to applying the lessons learned from this failed grand experiment, then some of those among us who still cherish individual freedom and the Constitution as originally intended will find political salvation, failing which we patriots and constitutionalists will surely be enslaved with the rest of the self-destructive nitwits who fancy themselves “citizens” of this once great Republic.

  7. In my reading of the U. S. Constitution and related historical documents, it occurs to me that the Federal Reserve is an unconstitutional and illegal organization. It is a private corporation that simply holds American taxpayers in bondage to some of the world’s largest banksters. And furthermore, it is in no way accountable to the federal government or U. S. voters.

    President Andrew Jackson was an early opponent of central banking, and abolished a form of central banking during his term. Thus, for a short period, the United States operated without debt for the first and last time in its history. But a form of Central Banking was re-introduced during the following administration.

    In these times, U. S. currencies were generally backed by physical assets such as gold and silver. But in 1913, a meeting was held at Jekyll Island, Ga in which government officials and representatives of the world’s most powerful bankers (Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, etc.) who agreed to establish a Federal Reserve which would create and control the distribution of US currencies, and thus wealth. This was known as a fiat fractional reserve system that need not be backed by items of inherent physical value. Furthermore it was based on the unfettered creation of unbacked DEBT!!

    Later, President John F. Kennedy sought to stabilize the U. S. economy by stripping the Federal Reserve of its unconstitutional powers. He thus enacted Executive Order 11110 (which has never been revoked) that empowered the Treasury Department to create and distribute U.S. currencies backed by silver bars, ingots and dollars contained in the Treasury. This was strictly according to powers granted in the U. S. Constitution.

    The subsequent new “silver certificates” were being printed for use, but his best laid plans went unfulfilled. He was assassinated Nov 22,1963–a warning to any future presidents with similar ambitions!!

    And to this day we operate with Federal Reserve Notes that hold the American economy in bondage to some of the world’s worst banksters who are too big to fail, too
    big to bail, too big to prosecute, and too big to jail.

    My questions follow:

    1. What do you make of this?
    2. How can we rectify this?

    • This is not my area of expertise; but as far as I know, all that you say is true.

      Governments & The People loved the fractional reserve banking system because it provided the credit to enable the federal government to construct the socialist regulatory welfare state which they – and The People – wanted. People still want a welfare state!

      Unless The People repent, and man up and demand a constitutional money system, things are unlikely to improve. And that repentance seems unlikely because our Country is now overrun by 3rd world parasites with no comprehension of the concept of limited civil government, AND the American People have been so dumbed down that they don’t know what’s what.

      It appears to me that absent divine intervention, there is going to be an Article V convention, where a new Constitution will be imposed which moves us into the North American Union; and from there, things will get much worse. Think Sweden and France.

      There is a heavy price to pay for stupidity.
