As we all know, the last election was a “tipping point” election on many different levels. An election won with the use of illegal last-minute changes to state election laws has led to a rogue regime that threatens the very foundations of America. This is being achieved through highly questionable executive orders, the decimation of the concept of national sovereignty and an attack on fossil fuels, the lifeblood of our economy. Moreover, Biden is converting our military into a social justice agency and transforming our intelligence services into witch-hunters for conservatives who dared to protest a stolen election.
More alarming is the left’s goal to make its political power permanent by granting amnesty to 20-30 million illegal aliens, granting statehood to D.C. and Puerto Rico, expanding the Supreme Court, and normalizing the censorship of conservatives, not to mention the institutionalizing of election fraud, especially in key swing states.
There is little doubt, if history is our guide, that should the left achieve permanent political power, future elections will just become “show” elections, our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights will be diminished, if not gutted, and our economy will become permanently stagnant as with all other socialist economies in the world. It will be the beginning of the end of America as we know it.
A proposal to challenge this attack on our rights
Our Founders, however, were extremely wary of federal power and thus created a number of checks and balances to counter it. One of them was the ability by the states to “nullify” federal laws and even Supreme Court decisions. As most conservatives know, nullification is when a State decides to not abide by a federal law, regulation or even a Federal court ruling by simply refusing to enforce it. This concept is rooted in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution, which plainly states that if the states, who are the creators of the federal government, have not specifically given them authority, that authority rests with the states and the people of the state:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Over the last 150 years or so, liberal legislators and judges have violated the Tenth Amendment by illegally expanding the scope and power of the federal government. We know that Federal power is limited because such powers were actually “enumerated” or listed in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution and include actions such as “To lay and collect taxes,” “coin money,” and “raise and support Armies.” The federal government was not given any role in education, health, welfare, transportation, energy, or even with maintaining secure borders. All those issues were left up to the states to decide. If our founders wanted to expand the federal government into every area of our life, they would not have specifically listed the very few powers they granted it.
Conservative constitutional scholars such as Thomas West, in his book, Nullification, How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, documents that our Founders believed that if a “law is unconstitutional and therefore void and of no effect, it is up to the states, the parties to the federal compact, to declare it so and thus refuse to enforce it.”
The left will scream about such nullification efforts, but they have been engaged in nullifying federal laws for years. For example, all state laws legalizing marijuana are illegal since they’re in conflict with federal narcotic laws, but states have simply refused to enforce these federal laws and so have “nullified” them. Likewise, states controlled by the left have allowed various cities and counties to become “sanctuaries” in which they refused to abide by federal immigration laws. And no, the Marines were not sent in nor did any state or city even suffer the loss of federal funding.
It is time our side use this tactic as a way of protecting our constitutional rights. Here are some of the issues that could be affected by the concept of nullification:
- Nullify all 1st Amendment Restrictions. States should refuse to enforce all federal edicts and Supreme Court rulings that impinge upon the 1st Amendment protections of our religious freedom, such as efforts by radical gays to force churches, faith based adopting agencies, religious schools, colleges, and businesses to carry out a radical gay and transexual agenda.
- Nullify all federal efforts to undermine the 2nd Amendment. States should nullify all federal laws that compromise the 2nd Amendment such as those being proposed by the Biden team.
- Nullify open border policies. With Biden announcing his intent to grant amnesty to all illegal aliens, combined with his hostility to border security, expect the border to get out of control. Already, migrant caravans are heading to the border. States should nullify such pro-open border policies and use their resources to stop illegal immigration. The reality is that states were originally involved in setting immigration policy and indeed, used to detain and deport illegals prior to the existence of a Border Patrol or ICE. The only mention in the constitution regarding immigration is “to establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization.”
- Nullify the anti-police agenda. During the Obama regime, his DoJ hamstrung city police departments all over the country with phony “civil rights” investigations, resulting in cities hesitant to arrest or prosecute violent thugs. With anti-police activists surrounding Biden, his administration will do the same, thereby empowering leftist rioters in our cities. The founders never gave the federal government a law enforcement role as they thought this responsibility best be carried out by local police and sheriff departments. States should resist and ignore all federal anti-police regulations and DoJ harassment of local police departments.
- Nullify all federal efforts to preserve fraudulent voting procedures. Conservative states need to immediately take action on election fraud and pass comprehensive voter ID laws, which, of course, will be attacked by Biden’s DoJ as a “civil rights” violation. States also need to remove the estimated 2-3 million illegal aliens from its voting rolls. Indeed, a fact check site has documented that the millions of illegal aliens are currently voting and may have thrown the election to Biden. States need to stop disenfranchising its legal citizens and also purge from its voter rolls dead people, repeat registrations, and those who moved out of state.
Of course, states will be reluctant to invoke nullification but the alternative would be to watch our constitutional rights be trashed by leftists. The MAGA movement in the Red States needs to became active in urging legislators and governors to start reclaiming their constitutional powers and begin nullifying illegal Federal law.
If HR1, “Fraudifying American Elections Bill” is not defeated, it’s all over anyway. But Democrats have clearly shown federal laws do not have to be obeyed.
Our state should nullify Roe vs Wade and make all abortions illegal.
Why should we follow federally mandated laws when sanctuary states do not?
@retire05: Or when some states don’t follow their own laws or constitution?
Every one of my Latino (Ex-Banana Republic) and Eastern Bloc friends say the same thing.
“It’s over. When they topple statues and rig and election, you never get it back”.
What comes next will be new.
The Biden Occupation may be the end of our Republic as we know it, but there is still a chance to build a new one.
But again, the USA died on Jan. 6th, 2021.
Time to start voting all the Liberal Democrats out of office
Add this to the coup:
State legislatures are currently in session and are required by law to draw redistricting lines due to the most recent census. But it seems that the Census Division in not really ready for that, as it has been in every other census. So they have informed states that the census data will not be available until September, at the earliest.
If HR1 passes, those lines will be drawn not by the state legislatures, who have certain guidelines to follow, but by an unelected “committee” in D.C. The bill states:
PART 1—REQUIREMENTS FOR CONGRESSIONAL REDISTRICTING
SEC. 2401. REQUIRING CONGRESSIONAL REDISTRICTING TO BE CONDUCTED THROUGH PLAN OF INDEPENDENT STATE COMMISSION.
(a) Use Of Plan Required.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law, and except as provided in subsection (c) and subsection (d), any congressional redistricting conducted by a State shall be conducted in accordance with—
(1) the redistricting plan developed and enacted into law by the independent redistricting commission established in the State, in accordance with part 2; or
(2) if a plan developed by such commission is not enacted into law, the redistricting plan developed and enacted into law by a 3-judge court, in accordance with section 2421.
(b) Conforming Amendment.—Section 22(c) of the Act entitled “An Act to provide for the fifteenth and subsequent decennial censuses and to provide for an apportionment of Representatives in Congress”, approved June 18, 1929 (2 U.S.C. 2a(c)), is amended by striking “in the manner provided by the law thereof” and inserting: “in the manner provided by the Redistricting Reform Act of 2021”.
“(c) Special Rule For Existing Commissions.—Subsection (a) does not apply to any State in which, under law in effect continuously on and after the date of the enactment of this Act, congressional redistricting is carried out in accordance with a plan developed and approved by an independent redistricting commission which is in compliance with each of the following requirements:”
This is in clear violation of the U.S. Constitution but hey, the Democrats don’t care. Texas is scheduled to gain at least three Congressional seats. What are the chances that the “commission” will gerrymander those districts to make sure that those three new Congressmen will be Democrats? Bet me that it won’t and I’ll meet you at the bank so you can pay me.
You’re correct. The United States of America, the great experiment, failed on January 6, 2021 and not because some windows were broken at the Capital building.
Agreed, but I have hope.
Truth is that the people who support Dems are not hard-working, resilient people. They will suffer the most under the Biden Occupation.
Those of us with real education, experience, and…work…will continue to kick ass at life.
The contrast will be even more extreme, and eventually things will slowly separate into two nations.
The level of wealth and brain power that fled the North East and the West Coast to go to Texas and Florida is so incredibly powerful, you’ll see it in the coming years.
Of course, through fraud, they are trying to turn those states into failure-blue as well.
“As we all know” is generally a tip off that something is coming which you’re supposed to accept without question. In this case, it’s followed by a series of sentences, each more absurd than the one immediately preceding it.
Biden is not converting our military into a social justice agency. That’s an utterly ridiculous statement. Nor are our intelligence services becoming witch-hunters to go after conservatives. We just got rid of an administration that was attempting to use some of our most important governmental institutions as political tools, and that may well be investigated. It’s entirely proper that it should be.
Thaddeus McCotter offered the following on the way of wokeness of the faux pres. exec orders:The WOKE revolution is aimed not only at demolishing SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES, which, fostered by the WHITE SUPREMACISTS, have poisoned the minds of the people SINCE 1619, but also at creating and fostering among the masses an entirely new ANTIRACISM and EQUITY—those of the ANTIRACISTS. This great task of transforming SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES is without any precedent in human history. As for all the SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES of WHITE SUPREMACISTS and PEOPLE OF COLOR WHO THINK WHITE, the ANTIRACIST world outlook must be used to subject them to thoroughgoing CANCELLATIONS. It takes time to clear away the SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES of WHITE SUPREMACISTS from among the people. Nevertheless, our experience since liberation proves that the transformation of SYSTEMIC RACISM and IMPLICIT BIASES can be accelerated if the WOKE are fully mobilized, the CRITICAL RACE THEORY is implemented and the ANTIRACIST transformation is made into a genuine mass movement.
ONE must never forget it is not critical race theory( pure swine manure) but COMMUNISM.
Actually, Trump followed an administration that used the government as his own personal political strike force. Obama attacked conservatives with the IRS, attacked journalists with the DOJ and spied on Trump’s campaign with the FBI. Of course, Obama had to do those things because he was a complete failure at everything else.
That means the idiot Biden will be even worse, as he is showing with the ongoing suppression of civil rights and militarization of DC.
Yeah, you’d know. This is the tone you take with all your bullsh*t opinions and propaganda talking points
Go f*ck yourself.
Accuse them of doing what you were caught doing.
The Obama administration installed a left-wing loyalist intelligence Network. We removed Democrats so that Trump could drain the swamp.
If you think that rigging an election served as some kind of”removal” of anything, you’re still oblivious to the fact that the mask is now off of you idiot marxists and your agenda.
I hope you’re ready for a war.
You’re absolutely correct Greg! That was accomplished by Barack Obama. Trump was probably unaware of this fact, else he would have undone the mess.
Does anyone else remember Obama’s “purge” of the Military, including a music magazine helping to remove General McCrystal?
I also remember when the free press was the least free it’s ever been, at the hands of Obama and company.
At least Trump upheld our rich tradition of a free and fair press and answered questions, loaded and corrupted by Democrat money as they were.
What’s the best way to help Dictator Biden rule America?
Cut the mic.
Such as William Barr’s spin concerning the results of the Mueller investigation, followed by the weeks he then gave Trump to conduct his Total Exoneration Tour before the reports themselves were released—one consequence being that his followers still can’t or won’t grasp how damning the conclusions actually are. Nor do they seem to understand or care about the extent to which Trump used his official powers to block testimony from knowledgeable witnesses, to withhold evidence from investigators and from Congress, and to otherwise obstruct justice.
@Greg: Nice story but he was not found to cause any obstruction, or congress would have used that to impeach. Totally exonerated.
@Greg: Barr’s “spin” was a precise and concise representation of that failed witch hunt. What was “spun” was that, first, there was ever enough real evidence of a crime to even have enough suspicion to begin an investigation. Since we now know that EVERYONE involved in that “investigation” KNEW the “evidence” was suspect and/or completely bogus. So, your “example” completely fails and, instead, spotlights more of Obama’s illegal activity. Great work, scooter!
Mueller clearly said there was NO obstruction, no way, no how and NO evidence or witnesses were withheld. Maybe you should follow your own advice and accept reality.
That is pretty funny coming from you when we know that Hillary Clinton paid a foreign agent for dirt on Trump via the DNC and Perkins Coie. In case you didn’t learn in the law school you attended, paying a foreign agent for dirt on a campaign opponent is against all Federal campaign code. I don’t see you wanting Hillary prosecuted for her crime.
What about the lies told by Eric Holder, Obama’s wingman, during the Fast and Furious hearings or the lies told by the IRS when Obama was going after conservatives organizations or maybe the lies told by Susan Rice about Benhgazi? Brennen, Clapper, Comey, all lied under oath. Have never read anything from you wanting them prosecuted.
You’re an idiot.
@Greg: You really need to give it up. The Mueller report, largely led and constructed by Democrat attack dog Andrew Weissmann and his team, was a bust. Mueller’s own testimony was a joke. But to you that partisan document is somehow irrefutable evidence of a crime is laughable. You got played and can’t admit it.
Right now Russia is much happier with Biden than it would be with 4 more years of Trump. Why? Look at oil prices. Oil is Russia’s cash cow. Higher prices benefit them and under Biden prices will be higher. Maybe it’s Biden Russia collusion. Calling Bob Mueller…..
That’s YOUR spin. Not reality.
The DNC rigged their primary in 2016, then Clinton manufactured a scandal that doesn’t exist to weaken Trump. They investigated. No amount of spin would allow Mueller to hide the results: total exoneration. Four years of media spin, mis-quotes, and hoaxes have only served to confirm what most of us know: the Swamp is real.
Yours is a world of made-up “inferences” and anonymous sources who ALL end up being Democrat staffers and operatives. Like Eric Ciaramella, the sham impeachment “whisleblower”.
If we can’t fix our electoral system by ousting the fraudsters, then we kick the Blue Voters and Blue Loyalists out.
@Greg: You want dishonest spin? How about the lying left trying to blame the idiot Biden’s border catastrophe on Trump? Trump’s border and immigration policies (when they could be implemented over Democrat obstruction) was a resounding success, even achieving cooperation from Mexico and other governments who were used to telling punks like Obama what to do.
If the wall had been completed, they would only have to be worrying about what was happening at ports of entry. Instead, illegal immigrants are being funneled through the areas where the wall is incomplete, exaggerating the problems in the cities in those areas.
But, of course, Democrats don’t care about any of that. It’s enough to reverse what Trump was doing, then blame the results on… Trump.
Of course, it isn’t safe to open our schools or have more than 4 people in a restaurant at one time… but border facilities can be packed to 100% capacity, making sure the virus gets spread thoroughly, then the infected illegal immigrants are being released and bused all over the nation… at taxpayer expense. No, this isn’t the result of anything Trump did; this is all Democrat stupidity, the work of those who ALWAYS put taxpayer considerations LAST.
Spin THAT, dumbass.
Meanwhile, REAL insurrectionists Antifa continue to attack the police and our government.
Biden using teargas.
It’s also time to dismantle Fort Pelosi. The stolen election is over now.
