Understanding the Constitution

Ask Questions!

  1. You just knew someone would eventually ask this. So, here goes. While I believe the President does have the Constitutional authority to spend defense and/or emergency funds to protect the border, what exactly do I cite in Constitution to support that belief? Thanks!!

    • Our Framers understood that control over who enters our Country is an essential element of sovereignty.

      So three provisions in our Constitution give him authority:

      Art. I, §9, cl.1 grants to Congress power over Migration;
      Art. IV, §4 REQUIRES the United States to protect each of the States against Invasion;
      and Art. I, §8, cl. 15 authorizes the use of the Militia to repel invasions

      It is his duty to protect us from invasion.

      Ideally, Congress should fund the wall. But if Congress refuses to do so – the President absolutely must step in – or we will have a civil war on our hands.

      • I have a question too. Why are people like Rahm Emmanuel, Jerry Brown and others allowed to state in public that their city/state is a sanctuary, in direct violation of the immigration statutes’ prohibitions against, paraphrasing, “aiding, abetting, enticing” (All right! Rahm said I’d be safe in Chicago!) illegal aliens to come into or remain in this country?
        Are Jerry and Gavin and Rahm just using their free speech rights? Wait…they are public officials. What’s more, city councils and state legislatures, I believe have passed ordinances and resolutions documenting and CODIFYING their intention to violate federal law.
        Are we going to call this nullification or something else? Like a violation of national security? And why is it that in a country with zillions of lawyers and well-funded political action think tanks and foundations, nobody can fund an application to the Supreme Court to get this stuff stopped? Or is it simply the JOB of the Attorney General of the US, as directed by the President when necessary, to enforce the laws? IOW, is it simply malfeasance or misfeasance or dereliction of duty, all THEMSELVES punishable acts, on a massive, bi-partisan scale?
        In short, why did the situation get so bad that we even have to be talking about using the military to repel an invasion?

        • 1. It got this bad because the globalists have been plotting for many decades to impose world government.
          In order to impose world government, they must first destroy all of the national identities.
          THAT is the purpose of the mass migration of third world people into the civilized countries of Europe and the United States.
          THAT was the purpose behind Wrong Turn Teddy’s (Kennedy) immigration and reform act of 1965 which opened the flood gates of this Country to third world immigrants.
          THAT was the mindset behind that poisonous Emma Lazarus poem which is on the Statue of Liberty – “give me your poor, your huddled masses, etc.”
          It’s about homogenizing the world population, destroying national identities, and taking down the civilized Western Countries – i.e., Western Civilization.

          2. Our Enemy was able to silence opposing voices by calling them “racists”, Zenophobes, etc. I have a German friend who told me that the Germans who oppose the massive importation of muslims to Germany are afraid to say anything because they will be called “NAZIS”. In this Country, people who opposed opening our Country up to massive influxes of third world people were also called names. So people went along with it or shut up.

          3. “Nullification” is the remedy our Framers advised States to use when the acts of the federal government were unconstitutional.
          But Congress has delegated authority at Art. I, Section 9, clause 1, US Constitution, to control Migration to this Country.
          States and Counties and Cities who act in violation of Congressional acts respecting Migration (“immigration”) are in violation of federal law.
          The Department of Justice should file lawsuits against the violating States and Counties and Cities.
          But the lawyers in the DOJ got brainwashed in Law school.
          Our federal judges got so brainwashed in law school that they refuse to enforce the Constitution and constitutional federal law.

          4. We have the additional horrific problem of the marriage of Money & Politics. On the FAKE “right”, the globalist Koch Brothers are literally buying up Republican politicians and judges and governors in every State. Yes, those Republicans Americans are so proud of electing are shills for the globalist Koch Brothers. Ted Cruz is one of the Worst. But he tells people what they want to hear….

          5. All you and I and others like us can do is Tell the Truth wherever we can; take the slings and arrows which depraved people hurl at Truth Tellers; and pray that God will intervene. And PREPARE FOR THE WORST.

          6. As a People, Americans have sunk very low. This article is about a man who really is (sadly) a Metaphor of what the people of America have become: https://freedomoutpost.com/a-metaphor-for-america-700-pound-man-plans-to-eat-and-play-video-games-while-naked-until-he-dies/

          And I know of Americans who plan to eat and play golf until they die.

          We have become a depraved, self-centered, self-indulgent, and cowardly people. And there is going to be Hell to pay.

          Countries really do destroy themselves from within.

          • PH; Very well said and spot on as usual. Wasn’t it Ben Franklin that said words to the effect, that people get the government they deserve? Simply look at the clowns running our government at all levels, local, county, state, and federal. We are our own worst enemy. I believe that God has given us the tools to right the wrongs and lead fruitful and socially productive lives. But to many have turned away from Gods laws for the immediate gratification offered by Satan.
            I have this fear, as you do PH, that this country will teeter towards the abyss of globalism. Those encouraging this have been at it far to many years. The powers that be will continue to push until one day we will wake up and the confiscation & re-education will have begun. No one can tell, but someone will fire the second shot heard round the world as on Lexington Green that fateful day. It will be the start of the Second American Revolution and will be “game on”. As I was born much to late to be of use during the First, I fear I will be much to old to be of use during the Second. So I wake up and do what I can to encourage the understanding of, and return to, the principles outlined in our founding documents. Gods experiment 5000 years in the making.

          • Hi PH, 2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

            2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

            3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

            4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

            5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

            6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

            7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

            It certainly seems we are in the end times…..
