Let’s get something straight up front. The people who run this country do not care at all what is in the constitution. Not even a little. They laugh at the peoples’ naïveté and nostalgia about it as though it IS anything. Oh they are ready and waiting to use it against the people whenever they need to. And, concomitantly they are ready to ignore it whenever they like as well.
Think about it. When the money power wants something the people don’t want, then the gov/media complex reminds us that we are a representative republic, and when the people want the same thing the money power wants then the gov/media complex reminds us that we live in a democracy. It is always the same scam.
One of the most absurd, but ESSENTIAL, concepts in the peoples’ mind is that the CON….stitution has some type of exalted status in and of itself and that we MUST obey it. It is absurd when you think about it. Why must we? They clearly don’t. Did you sign it? Did I sign it? Did anyone we know sign it? No. It only has whatever power AND MEANING that the people in government wielding the GUNS care to give it and nothing more.That is why “getting back to the constitution” is a losers game for the people.
Let me show you a concrete example using the “interstate commerce clause” of how the power and scope of the feds is whatever they want it to be “under the constitution”.
The constitution is supposedly a grant of LIMITED and EXPRESS powers to the federal government. Those powers are listed in Art. One section 8. The states were still so concerned they put in the 9th and 10th amendments just to be sure there was NO DOUBT that the powers were only those express and stated.
The powers were so limited that when they granted the feds the power to have a post office, they ALSO granted them the right to have postal roads! What in the world good is a post office without a road to it? But do you see, the concept was that the powers were so specifically limited that there was concern that the feds would not have the power to create postal roads. Remember that.
Of course those in power know that over time that memories fade and all can be rewritten. The people are easily fooled, the feds change the rules and the people can be tricked into giving up more and more piecemeal. That is the entire game.
The Feds power to control virtually anything stems in large part from its power to regulate interstate commerce. Now the entire constitutional convention was a scam and I have already showed you that. But even under the story we are told, the “interstate commerce clause” was supposedly put in to the constitution because there supposedly needed to be a way for the states to get a long and not have constant fights about the trade between the states. It in no way was intended to transfer control of what happened inside the states. But that is exactly what has happened.
The entire charade of any real limits to the FEDS powers ended rather ignominiously during WWII. in the case of Wickard v. Filburn when the supreme court took any limitation off of the “interstate commerce clause”. Let me tell you about it.
Quick facts for the case. Now as you know I like to use Wiki whenever I can because NOBODY can argue that the NSA’s own web site is anything but a mouthpiece for the ptb’s. And in situations like this there is NO argument about the facts or the case.
A farmer, Roscoe Filburn, was growing wheat for on-farm consumption in Ohio. The U.S. government had established limits on wheat production based on acreage owned by a farmer, in order to drive up wheat prices during the Great Depression, and Filburn was growing more than the limits permitted. Filburn was ordered to pay a fine, even though he was producing the excess wheat for his own use and had no intention of selling it.
Got it? Fairly straightforward. A guy has a farm. He wants to grow some wheat to keep and feed his animals etc. He isn’t even TRYING to sell this “extra wheat”. He is USING IT HIMSELF ON HIS OWN FARM. So the “limited” federal government steps in and says no no no. You can’t do that. We control how much wheat you can grow.
I ask you, can there be a more absurd extension of a power designed to control interstate commerce than this? The man is growing wheat to use on his on farm.
Well you know what’s coming of course. The holy oracles in Washington, the supreme court found that this was part of interstate commerce and therefore the feds could regulate it. Here’s how Wiki summarized it. And they get it basically right.
The Supreme Court interpreted the United States Constitution’s Commerce Clause under Article 1 Section 8, which permits the United States Congress “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes”. The Court decided that Filburn’s wheat growing activities reduced the amount of wheat he would buy for chicken feed on the open market, and because wheat was traded nationally, Filburn’s production of more wheat than he was allotted was affecting interstate commerce. Thus, Filburn’s production could be regulated by the federal government.
Okay, so the court finds that if you grow something to eat or use yourself, that is also “traded nationally”, then your actions can be regulated and controlled under the concept of “interstate commerce”. Of course this “finding” turns the entire idea of “interstate” commerce on its head. Think about it. If you are growing your own feed to use then what you are doing is specifically NOT interstate commerce, BY DEFINITION. Yet the court just makes up this whole fantasy to expand the feds powers.
Here is the “holding”:
Whether the subject of the regulation in question was ‘production,’ ‘consumption,’ or ‘marketing’ is, therefore, not material for purposes of deciding the question of federal power before us. That an activity is of local character may help in a doubtful case to determine whether Congress intended to reach it…. But even if appellee’s activity be local and though it may not be regarded as commerce, it may still, whatever its nature, be reached by Congress if it exerts a substantial economic effect on interstate commerce and this irrespective of whether such effect is what might at some earlier time have been defined as ‘direct’ or ‘indirect.’
Look at that. Read it again. Drink in the freedom. lol
So even LOCAL activity that is not COMMERCE is now magically “reachable” by Congress using the interstate commerce clause. I ask you, what does this authority NOT COVER? What about this is limited or expressed? Nothing my brainwashed friend, nothing. And that is my point.
Let’s go a step further. Take a look at the actual language in the constitution that people refer to as “the interstate commerce clause”? “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes”. That is the language. Now think about this.
If that language has the meaning that those jokers on the court give it, well, then the only logical conclusion is that the constitution was intended to give congress the authority to regulate the INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF FOREIGN NATIONS AS WELL. Do you see why? It is the same alleged grant of power. Do you SEE the absurdity of the court’s “reasoning”? The founders were a lot of things but they weren’t stupid. This “reading” by the court violates EVERY RULE of Contract interpretation. Turns it all on its HEAD! No way it is right.
The reading they have given it IS IMPOSSIBLE. Laughable. The states never gave the feds the right to regulate farmers growing feed for their animals. But the problem is not that it isn’t obvious to anyone that they are wrong. The problem is that there is NO WAY TO GET RID OF IT. You have to convince the very people (the Congress) that have now been given the power to give the power UP!. How can THAT ever work? It can’t. And it doesn’t. That is why the constitution can NEVER WORK to do what you are told. But it works PERFECTLY to do what it is actually intended to do!
The feds CONSPIRE to make the document say whatever they want. If the language is there and they don’t like it they read it out. If it isn’t there, they just read it in. Heads they win, tails YOU LOSE every time my friend.
Do you see why I say the STRUCTURE of the government is there to enslave you? You can’t have one part of the same government overseeing the other part. It makes no sense. The court AND the congress grow in power when the AREA the court regulates grows. And so they grow the area that they control by expanding the area the feds can “regulate”. Do you see this? The structure of the constitution can NEVER WORK. Surely the proof for that is in by now? THE STATES must be in charge of limiting the feds. That is the ONLY way it could ever work.
I have one last very simple set of questions that demonstrates ONCE AND FOR ALL that the interstate commerce clause does not mean what those frauds on the supreme court have said and that 99% of everything the feds do under the “interstate commerce clause” has no legitimate basis. NONE.
If the “interstate commerce clause” power extends out to the broad range of powers that the court claims in Wickard, then why did the framers BOTHER to include the power to create postal roads in addition to the power to create a post office? Why?
Surely the “power” to create a “postal road” is an implied power that is subsumed in the grant to create a post office dealing with “interstate commerce”. How can one work without the other in a “new” country with basically no roads! lol
And now go ONE STEP FURTHER. What affects “interstate commerce” more than a POST OFFICE and its roads? NOTHING. A post office IS interstate commerce! So why would the framers bother to put in a specific grant of authority to create a post office AT ALL since that “power” is clearly subsumed under the power to “regulate interstate commerce” if the court is right.
Do you see the inconsistency yet? It is screaming at you. lol
This is the same type of inconsistency that caught Nicholson in “A Few Good Men”. The old, you can’t handle the truth. Remember the scenario? There would have been no need to order Santiago off the base if the men always followed the Colonel’s orders and if the Colonel had IN FACT ordered Santiago not to be touched. Yet he WAS in danger. Those two things don’t go together. One or the other can’t be true.
Those in charge have the same problem in the constitution with all their made up blather about the commerce clause. If the commerce clause covers what they claim, then there is no need to specifically grant congress the power to open a post office and postal roads. But if they make such a grant, then there is no way that the interstate commerce clause is what we are now told. Do you see it yet?
To establish post offices and post roads;
The one sentence that can’t be explained away. Yet there it is. It stands as a testament for all times to the lie that is the power the feds now claim. It can not be escaped. It cannot be explained away.
I don’t care how many holy decisions full of lies that group of coverup artists come down with, the truth is right there for anyone to read themselves.
To establish post offices and post roads;
99% of the “power” the feds exercise is just a FRAUD on the people. Top to bottom, front to back. Side to side.
Trying to couch it in fancy terms and legal jargon or to explain it away with precedent or to try and convince people that they “have to be a constitutional scholar” or “go to law school” or any thing else to “understand it” is nothing but a sham, a cover. It is embarrassing. That lying only makes it worse. Just be a man about it and Admit it already. YOU ARE LIARS. lol
I hope you see my point now. The constitution is not anything more than what they tell you it is. It is nothing but a way to “legitimize” their use of force to steal any and everything they want from you and me. It is not a holy document. It is a piece of junk. It does not limit the Feds.
The people should heap contempt on it not praise. As long as the people look to it as though it is something it is clearly NOT, they will live under the delusion that the government and the people who operate government have checks on them beyond the WRATH of the people they steal from. They DON’T. That is the only check.
The people running it know this. That is why they are so sure to always always always talk about the constitution. They run around acting like they have to worry about whether the constitution even “permits” certain action etc. They must laugh their asses off at you when they do that! I bet they can’t believe you fall for this charade. Hell, I can’t believe people fall for stuff this BLATANT.
Drones. That is all you can say. And those back to the constitutioners have a whole cadre of well paid shills screaming about it and getting people riled up about it. I laugh my ass off at those frauds. Selling them books and videos and lectures. It is hilarious to me. Those people are either in on the whole thing or hopelessly lost themselves. Either way the result is the same. They get your time and your money and they play an essential part in keeping you on the Money Power’s reservation called “the united states”. It’s sad really. Sad people are so easily fooled.
If this does not wake you from your slumber what could I bring you? This is NOT a country of laws. That is a fairy tale they tell the people, nothing more.
Okay my friend, I am done for now. I can’t take anymore freedom today. I hope you learned something. Take care, my brainwashed Brethren, we have to stick together. Live in the light and tell someone the truth about the law.
