This Week, SCOTUS To Re-examine The Constitution’s Supremacy Clause (Reader Post)

Tomorrow the SCOTUS is going to start to review if international treaty can overrule the Constitution of the United States. This will affect all current and future considerations of what is the “law of the Land.” If Roberts rolls over again, then the UN’s Small Arms Treaty can be allowed violate our Second Amendment rights, as well as what will happen with the effect of all UN and World Court decisions on every other current national law and regulations. What this is all about you might ask?:

When the United States joins a treaty, does the Constitution allow Congress to pass laws to implement that treaty that would normally be unconstitutional? That’s what the Supreme Court will consider this week in Bond v. U.S….(Snip)

Bond certainly committed crimes—state crimes such as trespass, battery, and maybe even attempted murder (though it appears Bond intended only to punish Haynes, not kill her). Bond was instead convicted for violating a law that Congress passed to implement the Chemical Weapons Convention, a treaty the U.S. Senate ratified in 1997.

On appeal, Bond’s lawyers argued that Congress’ statute implement that treaty violated the Tenth Amendment—that this was a state matter for local law enforcement. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit held that citizens like Bond lack standing to assert the state sovereignty aspect of the Tenth Amendment.

Supreme Court superstar Paul Clement took the case, and the Supreme Court granted review. In 2011 in the first case entitled Bond v. U.S., the justices held that American citizens do have legal standing to raise the Tenth Amendment as a defense in court.

The case went back to the lower courts, which acknowledged Bond’s defense but reaffirmed her conviction nonetheless, holding that it did not violate the Tenth Amendment.

Now the Supreme Court has granted review again in Bond II. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution sets forth the powers of Congress; any provision of a federal law not authorized by one of the 18 clauses of Section 8 is unconstitutional. The Obama administration is arguing that if the United States enters into a treaty, the federal government can enact laws to implement the treaty that would otherwise be unconstitutional.

So the question in this case is whether the Treaty Clause of the Constitution somehow empowers the federal government to escape the Constitution’s limits on federal lawmaking authority. It is a very important case on the scope of reach of federal power, with implicating for proposed treaties on gun control, limits on parental authority, and state sovereignty.

Make no mistake, that if the Robert’s Court again ignores the Constitution and past law (as they did in the Obamacare ruling,) in order this time to support international political supremacy over the Constitution, then they will put a final nail in the coffin of this Constitutional Republic. If the United Nations is granted supremacy over the Constitution, then the law of the land is null and void, as it is malleable to the whims of unelected foreign ambassadors, most of whom hate the USA with a passion.

So, we must watch carefully to see if the SCOTUS will throw out the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution. IF they do so, we will suddenly become subjects under the supreme rule of the UN and any other international treaty body that the US is signatory to. The Obama Administration is arguing in favor of World Dominance over this nation and making the Constitution inferior.

    O say can we see tyranny on the horizon; Let’s have some half-baked idealist ideologue make a treaty with some Bumflock country to cripple our industrial base to insure we halt Global warming and keep the sea levels from drowning the costal regions of the world. The opportunities for international cronyism and mega-corruption are beyond comprehension, but the Socialists will have the United States under their yoke of control.

    The humor lies in the fact that former Socialist countries would laugh in your face at the absurdity of granting foreign countries such control over their countries. We are being led up the steps of the gallows of freedom.

    We the people should start to review if the Declaration of Independence needs to be re-applied

    It already has been. Someone took the Declaration of Independence and rewrote it as if it were written today. It is amazing how little had to be changed to fit today’s situation. I took the new declaration and put it beside the original declaration to make it easier to see how little had to be changed.

    Perhaps I am living in a parallel universe, but I thought that whatever the UN ginned up had to be ratified by 3/4 of the states.

    If the SCOTUS turns this over, there is no stopping obama. If he doesn’t get his way, he will go through the UN. He has tried it previously but to no avail.

    You all just don’t understand. The United States is unjust. It is racist. It is corrupt. The United States needs to be brought to heel, under the sovereign power of a National Socialist Regime. That Regime will dictate how we shall live (or die). Only in that way can we join our Peers: North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Russia, and other Great Socialist Dictatorships. This must be done, to level the playing field.
    The success of the US was a fluke. It must be undone. We must be diminished. The Supreme Leader has decided this, and his decision may not be appealed.
    Gen Holder will place another call to CJ Roberts, reminding him of what will happen to him if he fails to follow the party line. And CJ Roberts will cave. He cares more about himself than his country, after all. A new penumbra of an emendation will be found which allows the Constitution to be set aside, like whenever.
    I hope you enjoyed liberty and justice. They will not be ours for much longer.

    You and I like to put some humor in our comments, but I have to admit that I didn’t even chuckle a little when I read your comment. I believe that everything you said is true, and that the obama administration’s goal is just what you stated. obama is acting more like a dictator as time goes on. He knows he hasn’t got very long to establish his kingdom.

    A long time ago I mentioned how the different countries are probably working together to turn the USA into a non-free country, and that it will be divided up among the conquering countries. What country will get your state? If this happens, the only two states that will be left are Texas and Idaho.

    I can’t imagine the Supreme Court essentially voiding The Constitution. But if they do, they have become traitors and deserve a traitor’s end. Every US Officer military and civilian, is sworn to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Those enemies are revealing themselves. It may be time to set up gallows on The Mall.

    I always try to look at things from the other person’s point of view. Try to imagine growing up idolizing someone. It could be a family member, or a good friend. For many years you could always go to them if you had a problem of ANY kind. You knew that somehow this person would make things better, no matter how bad it was for you, and they always did. You hoped you could be like that person someday, when you get older, and that people would be able to depend on you for support.

    Now, try to imagine this person accidentally hearing their hero telling someone about this idiot that no matter what he tells them, they ALWAYS believe what they tell the buffoon.

    The liberals finally found out that their Peace Prize winner, smartest man in the world, global cooler downer, free lunch man, ask for it and ye shall have it man, and all around good guy, is NONE OF THE ABOVE. In fact, they found out that if their hero competed in the Liar’s Club competition, he would win the first 10 places EVERY TIME.

    How many others have fooled so many people for so long with so many lies? Who can count them? He will probably be in the Guinness Book Of World Records. They will probably have a whole section dedicated to the great Liar-N-Chief.

    Are you getting an idea of how they are definitely feeling really, really, really, really, really, bad right now? Let’s all be the compassionate conservatives that we are supposed to be, and let them have their time of morning in private, unlike they do when a conservative is morning the loss of someone.

    If any conservative knows where any of them lives, please take them a pie, cake, meal, or something to let them know you care. They probably don’t feel like cooking right now, and might not even feel like eating. Let them know that we understand how it feels to lose a loved one, and that each person morns in their own way. Let them know that you will be there for them, and offer to do some things around the house that they won’t be feeling like doing for some time. The main thing is to be there for them when they need you. BE A FRIEND.

    HOW ABOUT A CREAM PIE ON THEIR FACE, FOR WHAT THEY DID,

    They didn’t make the mess. They just let it happen. obama and congress made the mess. The liberals are finally finding things out. They are feeling really bad right now, for being told all of the lies, and believing them. Imagine how bad they will feel when they find out, as Paul Harvey would say, “The rest of the story”, when more of the lies are found out about other stuff.

    @Smorgasbord: #16… you are absolutely right. And about that feeling bad for the liberals? Nope, can’t do it. I will tell them to man up, shut up and own the situation they created for the rest of us to fix. And I’ll do it clearly and without fear or compassion.

    HI,
    IF IT TAKE THAT LONG FOR THEM DEMOCRATS to become aware,
    THEY DON’T DISERVE THEIR SEAT AS ELECTED TO SERVE THE PEOPLE,
    THEY NEED TO BE DUMP AND REPLACED BY SMART CONSERVATIVES WHO CAN PERCIEVE THE NEXT MOVE OF OBAMA EACH TIME, AND CAN WORK FOR THE PEOPLE, BEFORE THEIR POCKET,
    NO PITY FOR THE DEMOCRATS, THEY HAVE THE POWER AND USED IT TO DIVIDE WITH HATE
    AND REVENGE, A COUNTRY UNITED BEFORE THEY GAIN POWER,
    LOOK AT ALL THE CRIMES CONNECTED TO THEIR AND BECAUSE OF THEIR AGENDA TO
    INSTALL COMMUNIST MARXIST SOCIALIST DEPENDANT SOCIETY, WHO CONSTANTLY NEED THE MONEY TAKEN FROM THE WORKERS,
    AND BEFORE OBAMA SHOWED UP, THE POORS WHERE BETTER TAKEN CARE OF BY THE GOOD PEOPLE OF THIS GENEROUS AMERICA WITHOUT THE NEED OF A HITLER STYLE EMPOWERING LEADERSHIP,
    WHICH NOW CAN CLAIM THAT IT KILL PEOPLE, REMEMBER THAT BLACK YOUNG WOMAN WITH A BABY IN HER CAR, TRYING TO GET OUT OF THERE
    WHO GOT KILLED AT THE DOOR OF OBAMA WHITE HOUSE WHEN HE SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT

    @Smorgasbord: That’s been tried for years, doesn’t work on liberals because they always know what is best for you and me while maintaining they are exempt because they are smarter than the rest. It’s past time to roll up our sleeves, sharpen our broadaxes and prepare for battle.

    Smorg, yes I can understand how their balloon has been popped and the air let out. If I had put all the faith and trust into the government that they had and then been so absolutely abandoned, I would feel a little alone and abandoned. They’ll be back when they have some more lies they want to believe.

    As long as we have a campaigning system where the ones running have to use someone else’s money, the ones with the money will always get what they want. If an HONEST candidate won’t take inappropriate money, and their candidate will take from the highest bidder, the HONEST candidate won’t have much money to campaign with, so they will probably loose. We need to have a campaigning system where either the candidate can’t spend any money, or the amount is set low enough that the average person could pay it.

    Unfortunately, I think you are right. They are like the rush hour drivers who change lanes often to get as far as they can. Many times I have seen them pass me in one lane, then some time later, I am passing them back. Then, the process starts over again.

    Reality Check: Please provide an example of any government official coming to a citizens door and forcibly removing a legal firearm.

    Its not going to happen here, not even remotely, and anybody who is afraid it will is delusional, period.

    Reality Check #2: Name a law that limits our right to possess firearms in a meaning full way (bonus points if it was signed into law by the current administration).

    Again, its not going to happen here, not even remotely, and anybody who is afraid it will is delusional, period.

    Prove me wrong.

    A GOOD TEACHER should not have call the police for a child with a fake gun,
    and resulting in the cancelation of the gun from his father home which was WITHIN THE LAW AND REGISTERD with the law,
    THIS IS AWFULL, AND THE MORE ONE THINK OF IT THE MORE ONE SUSPECT THE ABILITY OF THE TEACHER TO USE HER BRAIN
    AND TELL THE CHILDREN THAT SHE IS NERVOUS OF SEEING ANY FAKE GUN IN CLASS, THERE IS A WAY TO TALK TO YOUNG CHILDREN WITHOUT PANICKING ON IT, and the bullies got away with it, she sure pick on the wrong one, bad thinking,
    SHE SHOULD NOT STAY AS A TEACHER AFTER HAVING MAKE SO MUCH TROUBLE FOR THE CHILD FAMILY, SHE HAS SHOWN TO NOT BE ABLE TO TEACH THAT OR ANYTHING ELSE, FOR THAT MATTER,SHE MUST BE REPLACE BEFORE DOING MORE HARM TO OTHER,
    we hear lately of many faults from teachers unacceptable,
    we must pay more attention on their manner to communicate with the young students, AND ANY WRONG ATTITUDE
    as this one
    MUST NOT BE TOLERATE

    @Redteam:

    At the moment I am feeling vindicated not stupid. I’m quite sure that I’m an unrepentant, patriotic, reasonably intelligent, critical thinker. I’d no sooner believe the commie propaganda they print at Daily Kos or Salon than an Alex Jones conspiracy theory at Infowars, as all good misinformation contains a kernel of truth. All mouth breathing aside, what are the chances of your weapons being confiscated FOR NO REASON (my emphasis), with no legal prospects for repossession? And let’s talk about common practice, not police confiscation due to a criminal complaint, which is a legal overreach that will net the plaintiff a bounty in restitution once he sues these dipshit yokels for a seizure of questionable legality, and therefore more proof of the point I am trying to make, to wit; the confiscation meme is horse manure and you know it. Furthermore, since we are being anecdotal, miscarries of justice aside, neither I nor any other persons of which I am related to or antiquated with, has ever had their weapons confiscated FOR NO REASON. If you are honest with yourself, you don’t know anybody who has either.

    there is no way to help after all the proofs given,
    unless it hit them in their faces than it will be too late,
    they came for the jews and i didn’t say anything,
    than they came for the gypsies, and i didn’t say anything,
    they came for the old and sick and i didn’t say anything,
    they came for the gun owners, and i didn’t say anything,
    they came for me, and there was no one to talk for me,

    @Sgt. Rock: So you’re saying if someone craps on your face and plugs your nose, there will be no proof to you that it stinks because you can’t smell it? No one has to come to my house and take my guns for me to believe that it does happen to some. That case I gave you is clear proof of that. Better keep a hankie close so that when the crap hits you in the face, you can smell it. It seems strange to me that you consider that his son having a water pistol is justification for this ‘miscarriage’ of justice.

    @Redteam:

    I don’t think I mentioned any face shitting scenarios in my previous post. That you chose such a scatological vein to your metaphor speaks to its content, besides it being a very poor analogy. Do yourself a solid and look up anecdotal in the dictionary.
    A man having his guns taken because of a criminal complaint is hardly equal to the government confiscating our guns under UN auspices. The former is not justice, but it is part of the price we pay for living in a nation of laws, you know, the whole freedom vs. security, social compact thing. The later is a fever dream fantasy.

  28. 40

    Redteam

    @Sgt. Rock: Okay, I won’t use the metaphor, but if you believe that the police legally confiscated this persons legally owned guns and that they had legal authority to do so,, but you choose to believe that a person that was not involved in the incident in any way (the man did not use the water gun, his child did) and that because of something someone else did is justification, then someone may as well be crapping on your face, you wouldn’t know the difference.
