It is Time for the States to Utilize the Compact Clause to Protect Themselves Against Illegal Immigration
Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
As the world watches in horror as ISIS kills, maims, and terrorizes the people of France, Belgium, and Russia, as the U.S. state department issues a world wide travel alert until February 2016, as the FBI and DHS issue warnings to the American people that the United States is under high alert for a terror attack on the homeland, nothing is being done about our open porous borders. It is absolutely beyond comprehension.
We face a crisis in our country today. Wide swaths of open land on our borders are literally open doors for terrorists; we are inviting them in to threaten our communities and kill our citizens. Due to this emergence it serves Americans well to be aware of what options the United States Constitution offers them via the States. Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3 may provide the answer. Your representative may not even be aware of this lawful loophole.
The clause states that “No State shall, without Consent of Congress… enter into any agreement or Compact with another State… or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit delay.”
Under the current dire circumstances, it is time for the governors of the border states to utilize the Compact Clause and take action since the federal government is doing absolutely nothing. To focus on the southern border, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas are currently being “invaded” and are certainly in “imminent Danger.” Thus, they can take action to seal up the border, send in the militia, send in armed guards or take whatever action they deem necessary to prevent the illegal and dangerous movements into their states. The compact can be between as little as two states. Thus, if California doesn’t want to join in they do not have to do so, but Arizona, New Mexico and Texas can be pro-active.
The compact clause states that Congress must consent to the compact – unless – actually invaded or in imminent danger. The southern states in America are most definitely being invaded. ISIS is surging. The illegal immigration crisis is escalating while the federal government is cowering in a corner – afraid of political consequences, or better yet encouraging them. Shame on them. It is time for the States to act and this clause gives them the legitimacy to do so.
Citizens awake! The danger is here More danger is coming. With the newfound knowledge of the Compact Clause - which allows states to defend themselves in times of invasion or imminent danger - calls must be made to your governors, and representatives on the state level, urging them to take action. Be wary of attempts to downplay the legitimacy of the Compact Clause. The fact that states can enter into a compact to protect themselves in times of invasion or imminent danger according to Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3 should not be distorted by political agenda and political legalese.
Our founders deliberately empowered the local and state governments giving them permission to rise when danger presented itself. We the people must act. Google your state representatives and email them, call them, sign the Compact Clause petition. Do the same with your governor. It is time for the states to protect themselves. It is time for us to demand it.
The Supreme Court of Canada recently ruled (April 15) that opening and closing council meetings in Saguenay Quebec with a Catholic prayer violated Quebec's provincial human rights act.
Edmonton has a worldwide reputation over 35 years of opening City Council meetings with a prayer or chant or musical presentation from one of the 13 + various faith traditions found in this community of 1.3 million residents.
This long-standing inclusive practice strengthens our community by building an environment to foster respect and understanding for Councillors, City Staff and meeting attendees. Ideas for the future include inviting rep. from the atheist/agnostic community to offer a reflection, moments of silence after any/all contributions to create a positive atmosphere of clarity, gratitude and mindfulness . ( for the liberties and freedoms we enjoy as Canadians)
It is my understanding that the purpose of The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is Tolerance, Freedom and Equality. It applies to corporations as well as individuals.
The Charter states that "a law will be found to restrict expression if it has the effect of frustrating the pursuit of truth, participation in the community, or individual self fulfillment and human flourishing" ( Limiting the Right )
The Charter ( 27 ) "This charter shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the Preservation and enhancement of the multicultural heritage of Canada."
According to the Edmonton Journal "City lawyers want Edmonton councillors to temporarily cancel the prayers that start their meetings for fear the practice is unconstitutional". The April 28 agenda calls for a motion to not have a prayer.
This effort is being made to provide Duluth residents an opportunity to voice their opinion about the damaging effects, to our political process, to our democracy, of huge amounts of unaccounted for money being infused into our election process since multinational corporate money was declared to be legally the same as an individual person’s right to free speech and since multinational corporations, even foreign multinational corporations, were declared to be identical, in the eyes of the law, as an individual person.
Since Citizens United, in 2010, the people have become less, and less, in control of our election process as their voices, and their freedom of speech, are being drowned out by Dark Money and Super PAC money.
We must have transparency in our political process.
We must get our country back into the hands of the people!
Here are our thoughts as to why we believe this petition is urgently important.
----Janine Turner & Juliette Turner
Your ancestry and the Founding Fathers feared the unchecked autocracy of a king, a tyrant, a dictator—or even an American president—that allowed one man to risk, and possibly ruin, the safety, liberty, and sovereignty of the people. They not only believed but knew first hand that fallible human weakness inherent in a leader, made ruthless by the quest for power and unquenchable vanity, could and would leave the people vulnerable and violated if left unchecked.
The Founding Fathers left a way to check and balance such tyrannical behavior. It was simply and specifically written in America’s founding document, the United States Constitution. Yet, this world acclaimed and historically proven document is only viable if you insist it be. If no resistance is met then silent, slippery usurpations blend into precedents upon which Presidents prey.
One such violation is happening before your very eyes—the current Iranian negotiations and impending deal. This “deal,” a treaty by another name, is supposed to be read, checked, debated, and vetted by your representatives in the United States Senate. Article II, Section II, Clause II of the Constitution states, “He (President) shall have power, by and with the advice and Consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two-thirds present concur.” In other words, the President cannot make a deal with another country and impose it upon you without your approval which flows through your duly elected Senator.
President Obama, however, is banking on the hope that you, and the majority of the American people, do not know the United States Constitution. Apathetic ignorance is the trump card which enables him to slide the Iranian deal into effect without being accountable to anyone.
My friends, this action, no matter what the precedent or the title of the deal, is a blatant infringement upon your democratic rights and the results could be disastrous – literally. Both President Obama and his administration will argue that the “deal” is technically not a “treaty.” (Merriam Webster defines the word treaty, “an official agreement that is made between two or more countries or groups.”) The Obama administration deceptively calls the negotiations the “Iranian deal,” even though it is “an official agreement that is being made between two or more countries” – the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France & Germany and Iran.
Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 69, which defines Article II, Section II, Clause II, refers to treaties as such that involve peace, commerce, alliance and every other description. The definition of the Iranian deal certainly falls into these categories.
President Obama’s unilateral attempt to execute the impending “Iranian deal” upon you without approval of the Senate is deplorable and apocalyptically dangerous. Even more stunning is the lack of revolt by the press, the people, and the Congress. Everyone’s focus is on the contents of the deal and the implications of the deal, not on how to stop the deal from being implemented.
Everyone except for Senator Lindsey Graham. Senator Graham is putting forth a bill that insists on the Iranian deal being subjected to an up or down vote in the Senate. Though I respect and admire Senator Lindsey Graham immensely and applaud him for doing so, there are two flaws to this method: a) it is not necessary – Senate approval is already a law under our United States Constitution; b) it allows the President to veto the bill, which then paralyzes debate, approval, and recourse.
The mechanism already exists: Article II, Section II, Clause II. It simply has to be enforced. No excuse or ready precedent or supposed air tight definitive can usurp the due protection you are entitled by this current Constitutional law of the land. Only your silence can accomplish this. Stand up and take back your voice. You have the right. You have the law. You have the opportunity. Call your Senator today. Insist that the Constitutional law be followed: that the Iranian deal stand the scrutiny of the Senate as prescribed in Article II, Section II, Clause II.
Facebook, Twitter, e-mail your friends. Your time has come. Petition. You must not forfeit your rights, your safety - your Constitution - because you have succumbed to the abetted belief that you can make no difference. Ring the warning bell. Be a Paul Revere.
Be a part of the collective wisdom of the people. Americans rule together; Americans must be heard. Your time is now. Patrick Henry says it best,
"They tell us sir that we are weak – unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have us bound hand and foot?"
Rally for your rights and for the enforcement of Article II, Section II, Clause II – before America’s enemies are at your door step.

The Redhanded Campaign has put into a publication official documentation that proves law enforcement officials are breaking the law before Grand juries and that prosecutors are aiding & abetting the criminal conduct and that members of the judiciary are covering it up.
"The Interview", a movie produced by Sony will not be shown because there is no movie theater in the United States that will show it according to Michael Lynton CEO of Sony Pictures.
Movie theaters have been threatened by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and have decided out of fear to not show Movie. Has this great nation become a nation of cowards?
Which group of fanatics will tell the United Sates what to hear or see next?
It is not the movie that is important but the first crack in our democracy and our first amendment that is important.
Charlie Chaplan was not afraid of Adolph Hitler when he made "The Great Dictator" and it is shown till this day.
A minority of extreme environmentalists have initiated a petition to prevent the bringing of energy jobs to the coastal area of South Carolina. Their voices threaten the will of the 77% majority of the people of this state.
South Carolina has the ability to enter a boom economic period with the advent of new off shore drilling, with the environment being maintained and improved.
Energy production can and does work hand in hand with a clean environment.
Don't let the doom and gloom naysayers stifle your voice, economic well being and future prosperity. What they don't tell you, it's not just about cheaper gas and energy independence. It's also about the everyday products dependent upon petrochemicals. Everything from your daily vitamins, medicines, clothing, kitchenware, furniture, appliances, electronics and so much more! There is barely an item you encounter in your daily life that was not produced with a petrochemical. Yes, even your smart phone and iPad.
Sign the petition to bring energy jobs to South Carolina.
It is understood that:
The United States of America must achieve energy self sufficiency and reduction in reliance on foreign oil.
Less expensive off shore energy production excess can provide export profits and attract major industries to our shore.
Until green energies prove to be productive, reliable, affordable and efficient, we must rely upon the alternatives, such a offshore energy production, clean coal, nuclear and hydroponic sources.
South Carolina offshore drilling will produce thousands of new jobs and millions in additional tax revenue benefits. **(Until offshore surveys are completed and studied no concrete figures can be presented.)
The Gulf of Mexico platforms are highly prized by offshore fishing and diving tourist trips. They form an artificial reef teeming with life and generate for Louisiana alone, over 5,500 full time jobs and around $324 million annually. The reefs produce fish densities anywhere from 10 to 100 times than that of the sea floor, per Bob Shipp, professor at the Marine Sciences Department, University of South Alabama.
3000 of the current 3700 off shore US oil platforms are in the Gulf of Mexico, with 1/3 of the commercial fisheries in North America, situated in Louisiana. These platforms produce 80% of US oil and 72% of US natural gas.
Dr. Charles Wilson of LSU's Department of Oceanography & Coastal Science, states, "The fish Biomass around an off shore oil platform is 10 times greater per unit area than that for natural coral reefs." he adds, "Then to 30,000 adult fish live around an oil production platform in an area half the size of a football field."
In a study by Dr. Shipp, found that the northwestern part of the Gulf of Mexico was basically empty of stocks of red snapper for the 1st hundred years of the fishery. With the appearance of thousands of platforms, the western Gulf has become a major source of red snapper.
With SC off shore energy production, the state will experience and increase in not only energy production jobs, but also in the ancillary increase in tourism jobs, increasing fishing and diving tourism, job creation in housing and other supportive industries, as well as increased state and local tax revenues.
The oil rigs will not be seen from coastal communities, like the City of Beaufort, nor from the beaches of Hunting Island. They will be beyond the sight lines of beaches, approximately 75 to 100 miles off shore, in comparatively shallow water as opposed to the Deepwater-Horizon Well, which sits at 5,000 ft. The shallow depth will make the well easier to inspect, maintain and secure from potential accidents.
Island Packet, 8/25/2014, "Since 2010, two well-containment companies have developed technology that could quickly cap and contain a well blowout to prevent another Deepwater Horizon-scale disaster", said Erik Milito, a spokesman for the oil lobbyist American Petroleum Institute.

Zambia has been engaged in several efforts to try and develop a new constitution in the context of both demands for a more democratic constitution and the need to rebuild Zambian political institutions which have been distorted by political manipulation over the years. Both the ruling party and opposition parties and civil society broadly agree on the need for a new constitution.
A new constitution for Zambia must provide important safeguards to ensure public accountability, responsiveness to the electorate, participation of the people in governance and the devolution of power to local communities. The approach to the making of a new constitution for Zambia must build on the past.
It must be participatory and be guided by dialogue, debate, consultation and participation. Additionally, it should be guided by diversity, inclusivity, autonomy, accountability and legitimacy.
The process must be empowering to citizens. Release of the draft Constitution will avoid political confusion and manipulation.

***SIGNING THIS PETITION QUALIFIES THE CONSTITUTION PARTY FOR THE NOVEMBER 4, 2014 GENERAL BALLOT FOR THE DISTRICT 1 LAUDERDALE COUNTY COMMISSION ELECTION, IN WHICH I WILL BE THE NOMINEE. GOD BLESS!***
It's time to clean house and apply REAL CONSERVATIVE CHANGE!
I was born and raised right here in district 1 of Lauderdale County. I have a 14 year background in real estate/management, 6 years in law enforcement (shot in the line of duty), and 3 years in the military. I am not a politician, but I do have a servants heart and that is what we need in government moving forward. The corruption in government of all levels is only getting worse and we are being told to just smile and take it! The power is GIVEN to the government, by the people and for the people. Without us, there is no government.
Let's take a stand together!
When elected, I pledge to:
1) Promote fiscal responsibility and help make the county more efficient with the funds available (do more with less, no NEW TAXES).
2) Push for additional funding of road projects for the currently neglected parts of the county.
3) LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE! I am not interested in special interest politics...I WILL NOT BE BOUGHT!
4) Promote progress and job growth.
5) Push for additional funding for our Sheriff's Department, in order to put more, well trained deputies on patrol...SAFETY OF THE CITIZENS IF PARAMOUNT! http://facebook.com/votebeaverscommissioner
We STAND with Major General Paul E Vallely.
Talk is CHEAP, people. Lip service without GUTS is a total waste of time, so unless you can step-up to it, all of you who are complaining need to shut your pie holes!
PUT UP OR SHUT UP!
In less than 24 hours we only got 145 signers on our first petition. We hear all this "talk" about wanting to roll on Washington, but when push comes to shove, all it is, is talk. No wonder the generals won't make a commitment to lead us. That is BULLSHIT.
If this is all the better turn-out we can muster, better hunker down for a long, long life of slavery. What a bunch of Candy ASSES!
I get so tired of all the lip service to wanting to roll on Washington when all it is, is a bunch of hot doggers who haven't got the cojones to sign their name in a show of support.
Sign the petition if you will support Major General Vallely and General Mattis. If we get enough signatures, the petition will be sent to them. Please also "Share" and refer your friends to sign the petition as well.
NOTE: It is NOT that it hasn't been attempted already. On 11-11-2011, MG Vallely and Colonel Harry Riley set out to MARCH ON WASHINGTON. They had commitments from over 10K veterans to show up. Well guess what? Out of those over 10K so-called "Patriots" who promised to show-up, less than 400 actually had the INTESTINAL FORTITUDE to even show-up. Do you see where I'm going with this? Either PUT UP OR SHUT THE HELL UP!
We're tired of listening to your gas, because that's all it is! Saving this nation is YOUR responsibility. There are those who WILL LEAD, but they need sheepdogs, NOT sheep to back them up!
Do NOT sign your name ANONYMOUS. Doing so will disqualify your signature. If you haven't got the courage to sign your name, don't sign the petition at all.
The highest law in our land is the U.S. Constitution, which has some amendments, known as the Bill of Rights.
The Bill of Rights guarantees that the government can never deprive people in the U.S. of certain fundamental rights including the right to freedom of religion.
The Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment gives you the right to worship or not as you choose. The government can't penalize you because of your religious beliefs.
The collective political establishment has betrayed the British people by transferring our national sovereignty to a foreign power without our consent. This is in defiance of our constitution and an act of treason.
For the past several decades the British people have been treated with extraordinary and total contempt by the collective political establishment. It has not mattered which political party has been in office or “power” as they insist on calling it, nothing ever changes. We are continually subjected to the same global agenda. We have been used and abused like pawns in their game of supremacy in which a dynastic ruling class see themselves as ordained to rule as masters – with impunity, whilst we the people, as virtual slaves, are supposedly destined to obey – without question.
They have persistently and consistently undermined our democracy by agreeing to treaties with foreign political elites who have no business in our affairs.
They accommodate tyrants, dictators, arms dealers and all manner of dubious characters, with whom they are happy to keep company. They turn a blind eye when the smell of money wafts their nostrils… it suppresses the stink of corruption and evil. Their moral compasses are defunct… their values deplorable and motives despicable. Our soldiers die to service their corporate agenda – their blood is on their hands.
We have seen our three billion annual fishing industry handed over to foreign control for nil reward. Our farms no longer feed us, crippled by regulations made to favour foreign farmers. Our ship-building has been dismantled and our merchant fleet whittled to nothing. Our armed forces are under strength and we see foreign troops being trained on our own soil on the pretence that they may be needed to protect us… when the reality is they are being trained to subdue us… to protect you from our vengeance. Our children are victims of social engineering in the schools and declining standards of education. They are being sexualised by explicit exposures before they have the emotional maturity to be able to cope. They are destroying their minds and their childhoods.
They deny us our rights and our freedoms and contemptuously imply that they can provide us with a new Bill of Rights. Would we seriously trust a thief with our wallets? They have corrupted our courts by appointing judges who are contemptuous of our common law.
It is our intention to govern ourselves… we do not seek their permission – this is our right. They have had their opportunity and they have failed. We will take control of our own lives in stages, as and when it suits us. Our numbers will grow as we show by example that prosperity is the natural consequence of honest and fair governance. We will expose them for the criminals they are.
• Who we are, and what we're doing:
Georgia Energizing Liberty is a coalition of individuals who want to produce a large liberty event in 2014 in Georgia with Dr. Ron Paul as the featured speaker.
• When and where?
This event will be on a Saturday in April in the metro-Atlanta region. We expect to draw a crowd from all over Georgia, as well as its bordering states.
In addition to Ron Paul, this event will include national and local leaders of the liberty movement. It will serve to energize the liberty base, attract new people to our movement, share our message of freedom, and help liberty-minded candidates raise money and awareness. It will provide a forum to have liberty-focused panels and discussion. It will also put on notice those who do not vote to uphold the Constitution, fight for our liberty and freedom, and ignore our fiscal responsibilities and small government ideals.
• Where does the money come from and go?
The ticket price will simply cover the costs of the event itself. To keep the ticket price low (at or under $25), we are also pursuing sponsorships, donations, and merchandizing. Without these ticket prices would be at or above $75. We feel that a ticket price of at or under $25 is the max we would like to charge, if at all possible.
• Why should I sign this petition?
The results of this petition will allow us to determine the interest level of such an event and to estimate the needed venue size. Those who sign this petition will be added to the list of invitees via e-mail, and will thus have a first opportunity to purchase tickets when they go on sale. Depending on the venue size, it is very possible that this event could sell out.
• We are very excited, and hope that enough people will sign this petition to warrant us continuing with this event! If you want to be a sponsor or donate, please put a note in the comments and we will contact you.
Personal information is not a directly protected right within the U.S. Constitution.
This petition goal is to rectify this concern by clearly making such right evident through the means of a constitutional amendment.
Electric and Gas companies are charging every consumer resident almost 80% more to use electricity and gas services. Your actual monthly usage is low but once your utility company adds on their taxes, recovery and delivery fees your bill is triple the amount and it is unfair.
MPSC (Michigan Public Service Commissions) has given your utility company permission to constantly increase their rates thereby charging you (the consumer), the same amount of charges they would bill restaurants, hospitals, your local shopping malls, government buildings,etc. This should be considered discrimination.
With the economic downturn and the recession the United States is facing, it should be unconstitutional to rob citizens in such a hard, economically destroyed country. Sign this petition to get the rates, taxes and fees lowered to a fair and just amount decreasing your bill by 60%. Say no to paying the same amount of charges as businesses vs. residential.
The federal government has abused the trust of the people, violating the rights guaranteed in the Constitution.
We are asking for a full and comprehensive investigation into the blatant abuse of power being committed by an out-of-control Executive Branch and an enabling Legislative Branch of the federal government.
There is no requirement for recognition of local councils in the Australian Federal Constitution because they are a State instrumentality.
The claim for this recognition is by those who want to centralise all government under the Commonwealth in Canberra so they can directly fund local councils and thereby undermine and remove State governments.
The governor, His Excellency Moses Akaranga has named his county cabinet as they await approval by the county assembly. We request the assembly not to approve the names of the COUNTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE members as they were not duly advertised to ensure fairness, merit and transparency.
This is a new constitution and with the devolvement of power, we need to have the most qualified people in office to raise the standards of our County. We have long lurked behind with our people being unemployed, high rates of poverty, drug abuse and high crime rates. To be a better county we need the best not political favours or buddies in key positions. We urge the County Assembly to reject the names and request the Governor to follow due process.
We need an economically, socially and politically powered Vihiga County!!!
Australia does not have explicit freedom of speech in any constitutional or statutory declaration of rights, with the exception of political speech which is protected from criminal prosecution at common law.
The Australian people want and need Free Speech. The Prime Minister needs to call a referendum to have this changed.
It is written in the US Constitution that Congress must pass a budget. No budget has been passed in over 4 years.
Every able bodied individual in America should be required to own a firearm. Project Amendment 28 is dedicated to commonsense gun ownership and each citizen doing their fare share for the well-being of the United States.
In Switzerland, government funded civilian militias are the foundation of the most peaceful of European countries. All Swiss men get military training except for those who have opted for an alternative civilian service. If you do neither military nor civilian service you get taxed. After getting your Swiss Army training you go home and become part of the militia for the next 10 years or so, and your gun goes with you.
Kennesaw, Georgia requires gun ownership. In 2007, Family Circle magazine selected Kennesaw as one of the nations "10 best towns for families."
In Israel, every soldier carries his or her weapon at all times. Large numbers of citizens also carry firearms openly, or concealed. Street crime is non-existent and numerous terrorist attacks have been foiled due to the quick responses of average citizens.
The right, and obligation, of every free citizen to keep and bear arms is a fundamental bulwark against tyranny, an essential tool for self defense and a key to the self-reliance so essential to the American character.
Senator John Madigan, DLP Ballarat, will submit a motion to the Senate in early February to amend Section 128 of our Constitution to give all voters the right to INITIATE referendums.
The war on cannabis began in the United States in the early 1900's and has proven to be a failed policy that has shown no progress and has only resulted in the arrests of millions of U.S. citizens and labeled them as "criminals" causing lifelong social consequences, thus exacerbating a problem that belongs in the category of public health and not law enforcement.
Medical marijuana is now legal in 18 states and Washington D.C. and marijuana has been fully legalized in 2 more states. Legalization is overwhelmingly supported by people under the age of 40 who have seen firsthand accounts of the social consequences that result from the arrests of so many people because they use a relatively harmless substance when compared to other potentially harmful substances such as fast food, sodas, alcohol, hard drugs etc.
Congress has continually shown no interest in addressing this issue due to the fact that re-election is more important these days than addressing the real problems that our country faces and they are simply too afraid of being seen as "soft" on drugs even though the public is increasingly sick and tired of wasting resources on this losing battle.
The most common sense way that we, the people, can solve this issue is to use our constitutional right of jury nullification when we are called on to serve in a jury related to potential marijuana convictions.
24. Arm School Staff
Stop blaming the NRA and blaming the responsible gun holders... stop trying to take our second amendment constitutional rights away.
Deputize all willing school teachers and staff, training them in proper defensive handgun procedures. Run them through a course at the local sheriff or police station.
Add a volunteer police station/office in every school.
In 2012, billions of dollars were donated by We the People of the United States of America to our politicians who sought election to administer our government. But how much was spent on candidates who would actually work for our best interest and institute change?
This is a NON-POLITICAL campaign to demand that the US Congress makes the change required to rebuild America. Our elected officials are not leaders, but puppets working for their puppet master, the Federal Reserve System. A system created whereby a non-governmental, third party comprised of individuals who are not all US citizens, let alone residents, administer and control the US currency. These independent controllers of our currency were given this right by an Act of Congress 99-years ago; an Act which has been amended, modified or altered over 200 times since its inception. Who knows what powers this Act in its current state gives the Fed; the amendments are impossible to follow so one cannot get a clear and concise understanding as to what the Fed is authorized to do for We the People.
The naked and simple truth is the following: The national debt that starts with this Federal Reserve interest is what causes the shortages that make us as a nation need to constantly go over budget in order to do our governmental duties and responsibilities. Keeping ourselves as a nation tied to the Federal Reserve creates debt each and every day it exists without us doing anything.
The Federal Reserve System is a cancer that has poisoned our ability to be the America we all dream of. We were not created to sit, work and live to pay off interest to the Federal Reserve. And yet, we have now bound our children and our children’s children to paying off this interest?
We need to understand that these non-elected, third party Banksters are the controllers of our nation and therefore have become the real puppet masters of our elected officials. Again, these puppet masters are the third party banking members that comprise our current Federal Reserve System, which is an independent banking cartel.
Those bankers who control our currency are the same people who got America into this current mess called the Fiscal Cliff. In fact, they are the current team of bankers who, using the rules of their banking order, created all the recessions and depressions since 1913. And while We the People suffer, this elite group personally profits on all the ups and downs.
An Act of Congress in 1913 created this cartel called the Fed and an Act of Congress today can end it. It’s that simple. The Fed does nothing but take. It contributes nothing to our world except to divide us into two classes, the real 99% and the 1%, where we the 99% live in fear. We allow this game to go on and on. Our Congress is now talking about austerity and how to fix the Fiscal Cliff that actually the Federal Reserve System created. But our leaders’ remedies do not discuss, let alone propose, to remove the cause, the Federal Reserve. We now need to ask - Why is the Fed above us? Why are they untouchable?
Forty-nine years ago in 1963 American President JFK, in his efforts to rebuild our country, was ready to remove the Fed from controlling our currency. This was Kennedy's effort and vision for fighting the War on Poverty. His administration was issuing US Treasury notes interest free to finance the rebuilding of America.
People, understand, the currency in your pocket is a Federal Reserve note which you are entitled to turn into a US Treasury note of equal value if you ask the Treasury to give you one. So in the simplest form, why do we need the Federal Reserve note which has interest attached when we could have a US Treasury note interest free distributed by a US owned and controlled Central Bank?
It is that simple. The Fed is doing the job that the US Constitution says that the US Treasury was created and empowered to perform – to print the paper currency, manufacture the coins and distribute this currency to the public. So we need to ask ourselves, why do we need this independent, third party system called the Federal Reserve to continue to exist.
JFK was actually able to get $2 and $5 US Treasury bills into circulation before he was assassinated. But for his untimely death, the other denominations would have been put into circulation. The War on Poverty would have been financed by this US Treasury interest free currency. We would be living in a different world today if JFK’s campaign against poverty would have been allowed to run its course.
Today, the voting citizens of the United States are polarized more than any time in our nation’s history since our Civil War. We have Republicans and Democrats as well as Independents fighting over how to pay for governmental services. These services can only be paid for with the net monies after the interest debt is first paid to the Federal Reserve. This interest debt is paid each and every year plus all other costs and expenses the Federal Reserve members say they incur. They then give the government what is left over to run the country.
Now our public services, aspects of life that we ALL need to survive as a community are being reduced to nothing while the Federal Reserve collects the income tax first. We do not even question this entire procedure before this interest bill is paid. This Federal Reserve interest for some reason has never become a focal point within our Congress to solve the problem. Instead, the debt is the main focus of our elected officials, and we say it’s time to focus on the real problem, those who caused the Fiscal Cliff and the exponentially mounting debt.
We, the undersigned, choose to unite as Americans, regardless of our political affiliation, and understand we must own and control our currency as one nation in order to be truly free.
We must change the United States' banking system NOW.
You Have the Power to Stop the ObamaCare Artificial Contraception Mandate
Catholic Birth Control: 99% Efficacy Rate, Better Sex, Greater Intimacy & Unconditional Love
The Obama Administration announced that as part of ObamaCare it would mandate that Catholic and all other religious institutions will be forced to provide artificial contraception and abortion pills in their insurance plans even though this is a violation of Church teaching. Scores of Catholic institutions and over a dozen states are suing the Obama Administration for violating the 1st Amendment religious freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
Did you know that the Birth Control Pill and all other artificial chemical hormone products are classified as Class I Carcinogens (cancer causing agents) by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Federal Government?
Did you know that the artificial chemical hormones that the ObamaCare Artificial Contraception Mandate will provide to all girls and women for FREE cause various cancers, heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, weight gain, mood swings along with other physical complications and dangers for women?
Did you know that since “The Pill” was introduced to America in 1960 that breast cancer rates skyrocketed from 1 in 20 women to the current 1 in 8 and now 250,000 women are stricken with breast cancer every year in the U.S.A and around 40,000 die? DETAILS
Did you know that the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate is intended to give all girls carcinogenic chemical hormones from the age of puberty until menopause?
Do you think having Class I Carcinogens in the bodies of all American women for the typical 40 years of fertility is good for the health of our magnificent American women?
Do you think filling your wife, mother, daughter or sister with Class I Carcinogens during their typical 40 years of fertility is good for their health or does it pose unacceptable health risks to your loved ones that you will not allow?
Did you know that virtually no one uses artificial contraception correctly 100% of the time and every instance of misuse causes severe risks of Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) transmission and also drastically increases unplanned pregnancy rates?
Did you know that over 50% of abortions are a result of this well-known misuse of artificial contraception?
Did you know that an ex-director of the largest abortion provider in America admitted that this organization knows that artificial contraception is a complete failure as clearly shown by the statistics above and their objective is to influence politicians to force government schools to teach “Safe Sex” lies to our children with the goal of executing 3-5 abortions on our young girls from the ages of 13-18 when virtually all sexually promiscuous children misuse artificial contraception?
Did you know that the artificial contraception “Safe Sex” lie still results in 1 Million abortions in America each year and many women undergo multiple abortions as per the plan stated above when artificial contraception fails?
Did you know that condoms do not protect against the incurable skin-to-skin contact STDs of HPV and HSV resulting in a projected 80% infection rate of HPV amongst women and up to a 50% infection rate of HSV for all sexually promiscuous individuals?
Did you know that there are 19 Million new STD cases in America every year and the cumulative effect over the past 6 decades has devastated our society with mass STD infections of all kinds?
Did you know that the MAJORITY of our children practice “ABSTINENCE ONLY” while in grade through high school and DO NOT experience unplanned pregnancies or the devastation of STDs during these vital developmental years?
Did you know that the artificial contraception “Safe Sex” lie and the accompanying “use and be used for casual sex, but take the pill and use a condom” propaganda facilitated the skyrocketing fatherless home rate in America from 6% in 1960 to 43% today with a shocking 70+% fatherless home rate in our black communities?
Did you know that the Obama Administration is attempting to force artificial contraception on the Catholic Church in DIRECT VIOLATION of the religious freedoms GUARANTEED by 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and dozens of Catholic organizations and over a dozen states are suing the Obama Administration for violating the Constitution?
Did you know that women are only fertile on average 10 days per month so the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate will cause millions of women to unsuspectingly take Class I Carcinogens from puberty to menopause when they are already infertile 20 day of every month?
Did you know that the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method keeps women free from Class I Carcinogenic chemicals and the resulting health dangers?
Did you know that the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method has up to a 99% efficacy rate of preventing pregnancy and this is a better effective rate than many artificial contraception methods mandated by ObamaCare?
Did you know that couples that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method report better sex, greater intimacy and unconditional love for each other?
Did you know that couples from all religions, Atheists and agnostics practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method because it is scientifically proven to be superior over artificial contraception methods physically, biochemically, psychologically, medically and for people of faith spiritually plus it has the vital benefit of keeping women free from carcinogenic chemicals during the entirety of their reproductive years?
Did you know that the men that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method know about and respect their wives’ bodies more than the average woman that practices artificial contraception knows about her own body?
Did you know that this concern for the health and wellbeing of their wife’s body creates the trust, unconditional love and respect that all men and women need emotionally and psychologically to maintain healthy and strong marital relationships?
Did you know that the divorce rate doubled from 25% to 50% after the pill was introduced to America in 1960?
Did you know married couples, including Catholic couples that practice artificial contraception experience this 50% divorce rate with many experiencing multiple divorces, but couples that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method have a 0.2% divorce rate?
Did you know that virtually no American citizen including our politicians knows the full details of the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate and that there is a new and captivating website developed to provide the complete details to everyone?
Now that you know the scientific truths revealed herein will you HELP to STOP the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate?
Thank you for taking your valuable time to discover the information we have provided for you. Please sign our petition now.
We've all been told that 10 of the 12 original articles in the Bill of Rights were ratified. In fact, all of them were ratified. Article #2 was ratified in 1992 and became our 27th amendment. Article #3 dealt with Free Speech and we all know it was ratified.
Article One of the Bill of Rights was actually ratified in 1792 but not recognized as ratified because people truly didn't know it was ratified. This case is now in the 3rd circuit court of appeals. (BoldTruth.com has the filing).
This is what this Petition is about. Finally getting it recognized for what it is. RATIFIED AND THE LAW OF THE LAND TO BE FOLLOWED.
One Representative for every 50,000 Citizens.
Article II of the United States Constitution requires that any person elected to be the President must be a natural born citizen. The present occupant of that office, Barack Hussein Obama, failed to show an applicable form of documentation until April 27, 2011 when he produced a document purporting to establish his birthplace as Hawaii. Analyses of the document by a number of experts have shown that it probably is a forgery.
Prior to his election to the presidency, he claimed Kenya as his place of birth, and a biography published by a literary agency stated that he was born in Kenya. The biography remained unchanged for sixteen years. During a speech in Africa, his wife indicated that Kenya was his home country. Articles in Kenyan newspapers stated that he was born in Kenya.
A former mail carrier in Chicago testified under oath that the foreign student receiving financial support from the parents of William Ayers was Barack Obama. It is believed that during his student days, he traveled to Pakistan while in possession of an Indonesian passport. This would indicate Indonesian citizenship.
There is evidence that, as a child, Barack Obama attended school in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, the surname of his stepfather.
29. The Proposal
We The People are of the firm belief that our United States Constitution is being violated. We are very aware of the exploitation of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Further, we also believe that “no one is above the law”. The United States Government officials are NOT upholding their Oaths of office.
Therefore we are offering to you as representatives of We The People our Proposal for government accountability to use as a guide, to endorse the suggested measures therein. As in there are punishments for the People when the law is broken, so should there be punishments for governmental officials as well. Violations to our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence have taken place in the current government administration. Governmental self-interests are running rampant.
We The People are summoning you for assurances that these type violations NEVER take place at any other time in the future within our government. Our liberties and freedoms are the foundations of our very lives. We, therefore, EXPECT our government officials to honor and support the People for whom the above documents were founded.
Assure governmental accountability to the people of the United States of America. Establish rules and guidelines of said accountability and determine punishment and penalties for federal government officials failing to meet the rules and guidelines set forth.
To ensure that the United States Constitution is permanently preserved for the rights, freedoms and liberty as stated therein. To ensure that the United States Constitution is absolutely the “supreme law of the land”. The above proposal assures that “No One Is Above The Law” which includes all elected and appointed officials of the United States Federal Government.
References to Proposal and Purpose
The last time the Constitution was amended, gasoline was $.036/gallon! The current prevailing political system is overwhelmed with corruption. Massive government and political reform is necessarily needed.
The Framers of the Constitution certainly realized they could not achieve absolute perfection in creating the Constitution.
The Framers created procedures for the amendment process in Article V of the Constitution.
The Constitution has been amended 27 times in its history. The first 10 amendments were created by the Bill of Rights proposed by Congress in 1789 and ratified in 1791.
The additional 17 amendments were proposed and ratified in the subsequent 220 years!
With the traditional process, Congress can propose an amendment if two-thirds of its members are in agreement. The amendment can then be ratified by the agreement of three-fourths of the States.
An amendment to the Constitution cannot proceed if the Congress itself is the problem
Our United States Constitution is considered to be the “Supreme Law of the Land”, however it is not currently being enforced to meet that standard. See Article VI of the Constitution.
Each and every elected government official, all executive, judicial and members of Congress of the United States of America are bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support the Constitution.
The definition of tyranny is “oppressive power exerted by government”.
The definition of treason is “a betrayal of trust”.
The people of the United States of America (considering our experiences in the last 3+ years) under the so-called “leadership” of Barack H. Obama and all other elected and appointed federal officials, NEVER again should suffer the consequences of tyrannical and treasonous behavior as exhibited by this, or any future similar government administration. Specifically, tyrannical and treasonous behavior as defined clearly violates our United States Constitution as described in the Circumstances below.
Some of the circumstances under which the people of the United States of America have now become fearful and gravely concerned for our rights, freedoms and liberties are listed below. The current federal administration has violated their Oaths or Affirmations of office and the Constitution. Tyrannical and treasonous actions on behalf of government officials against the people have been committed as detailed below:
Citizens of the United States were denied much needed jobs because drillings for oil in the Gulf of Mexico after the oil spill carried too many frivolous and detailed regulations created by government officials.
Citizens of the United States were denied much needed jobs because government officials would not allow the construction of the Keystone Pipeline.
Creation of a “law” forcing citizens of the U.S. to buy a “product” they do not wish to buy.
Allowing or ignoring a group of non-law enforcers to place a bounty on another citizen’s life.
Allowing or ignoring a group of non-law enforcing citizens that were a “threat” to United States citizens at their voting jurisdictions.
Refusing to deal with known rampant voter fraud thereby making elections corrupt.
The refusal of government officials to establish a government yearly budget.
The refusal of government officials to act upon Standard & Poor’s downgrading of the United States AAA credit rating by not making any progress towards achieving a goal of stabilizing our debt.
Government handouts are already at record levels and the government is not even coming close to paying for all of this reckless spending.
Barack H. Obama openly challenged the Supreme Court of the United States in a State of the Union address. This is absolutely unprecedented – see Marbury vs. Madison.
Barack H. Obama stated that he would bypass Congress.
Barack H. Obama gives our land and resources to the UN.
Barack H. Obama continues to grow government and put us further and further into debt.
Barack H. Obama is prepared to silence those who speak out against him, implement martial law and shut down any resistance.
Barack H. Obama has no use for state governors, especially those who enforce their states' sovereignty. Example, the federal government suing Arizona over their immigration law, yet he refuses to act on illegal immigration.
Barack H. Obama and other government officials have ignored crises in which the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which either generate institutional disruption or bring unrecognized disruption to public attention. (Occupy Wall Street, etc.)
Obstruction by the DOJ of North Carolina’s non-partisan elections laws.
DOJ lawyers who represented GTMO detainees.
The fact that we even have a Fast & Furious investigation that Barack H. Obama and the DOJ are deliberately trying to sideline. They ALL needed to be IMPEACHED for this one!!
Barack H. Obama collaborates with the Muslim brotherhood/terrorists.
Barack H. Obama is trying to dismantle the military.
Barack H. Obama has done nothing helpful to improve the dire situation with our housing market.
Certain government officials are “tabling” bills from the House rather than place them up for vote.
There is blatant racial discrimination displayed by the DOJ.
The various scandals being investigated namely, the Secret Service, the U. S. Military and the GSA, just to name a few leads the people to wonder whatever happened to “leading by example”.
The Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s ongoing effort to create international small arms accords that will subvert the Second Amendment rights of U. S. citizens.
Barack H. Obama and his environmentalist allies preventing U. S. industries from taking advantage of our rich natural resources including oil, coal, uranium and timber.
Barack H. Obama’s month long stint as UN Security Council Chair in 2009, the first ever by a sitting U.S. President. Not only did this action give credibility to an international organization ruled by tyrants, it also called into question potential dual loyalties by our President.
The Obama National Security Strategy released that allows for the targeted assassination of U. S. citizens including “homegrown terrorists” without due process.
Barack H. Obama executive order signed in Dec. 2009 that allows Interpol to operate in U. S. territory with impunity and without oversight by Congress, the courts, FBI or local law enforcement.
The State Department using $23 million in taxpayer money to help transform Kenya into a constitutionally communist nation where the freedom of speech is limited and private property rights are subservient to “social justice”. In addition, the recently adopted Kenyan constitution allows for the practice of Sharia Law in some regions, ensuring women will not be guaranteed basic human rights.
The $26 billion bailout of the teacher’s unions that Barack H. Obama signed into law.
Government officials protecting union interests over those of GM and Chrysler bond holders during bankruptcy proceedings, forcing investors to accept millions of dollars in losses in direct violation of bankruptcy laws, money to which they were legally entitled.
Spending $23 million of taxpayer money through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support a constitutional referendum in Kenya in spite of the Siljander Amendment, which makes it illegal for the U.S. to lobby for abortion in other countries. The Kenyan referendum was partially written by Planned Parenthood and is designed to legalize abortion in that nation.
Barack H. Obama’s canceling of 77 properly filed oil field development contracts approved by the Bush administration by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, preventing the extraction of up to 3 trillion gallons of oil buried under Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and North Dakota, more than enough to end our dependence on foreign oil and supply the U.S. with its energy needs for hundreds of years at current consumption rates.
We can also talk about the Solyndra scandal and how much taxpayer dollars were given to them that they wasted and then, shortly went out of business! There are other such similar scandals in the “green” energy endeavor.
The worst crime of all that Barack H. Obama has perpetrated against the American people is the economic tyranny his socialist policies have wreaked upon our nation. While Obama has been living the life of a king including frequent 5 star vacations, dozens of concerts at the White House and endless rounds of golf, all paid for by taxpayer money—the increased transportation and security costs alone are in the millions of dollars—he has called for the rest of us to endure economic sacrifice. The annual trillion dollar deficits and borrowing of 41 cents of every dollar of federal spending by Obama has led to unsustainable and catastrophic national debt.
And WORST of all, Republicans in the House ARE NOT PROTECTING the people’s right to free speech!! Personally saw and heard this on Tuesday, April 24, 2012. News title: New Law Makes Protesting Near the President Illegal; Judge Napolitano Calls It an ‘Assault on Free Speech’. All but 3 representatives in the House voted for this! SHAMEFUL!! Do you even KNOW the Constitution?
Regrettably, this list could go on and on. And unfortunately you know as well as We the People what is going on in this current government administration. Why are you NOT fighting for the people?
Recommended Punishment and Penalties
The most significant attributes of the U. S. Constitution are the establishment of the rule of law, the creation of a federal system with an exemplary national government, the separation of government powers into three branches that provide checks and balances for each other, its flexibility and the formation of a republican form of government.
In addition, if the people who commit crimes are subject to penalties, there should be no difference in the penalties for government officials. Clearly, the current administration has violated their oaths of office and the Constitution, being the supreme law of the land. No One Is Above the Law! Therefore, this proposal suggests the following:
Tyrannical and treasonous actions on behalf of any government official is a crime, and is punishable by fines and imprisonment as designated by a jury of their constituents and peers, namely the non-elected people of the United States of America of whom these officials are elected to represent.
Likewise, government officials averting or violating their Oaths of office are considered to be tyrannical and/or treasonous behaviors.
Any corruption committed by a government official is considered tyrannical behavior.
It is our firm belief that governmental officials should abide by the same laws as the People of the United States of America. As our representatives, governmental officials should be expected to hold the People in high regard. Appointed officials are required to take an Oath of Office as elected officials do. Responsibility and accountability to the People of the United States of America should be taken very seriously by anyone holding a government position. We the People hold our Constitution in high regard and expect no less from those serving in government positions.
This is OUR COUNTRY and we want the respect that was given us by our Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.
On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.
We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule. We Move to Amend.
~Supreme Court Justice Stevens, January 2010
Whereas, government of, by, and for the people has long been a cherished American value; and the people’s fundamental and inalienable right to self−govern, and thereby secure rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence; and
Whereas, free and fair elections are essential to democracy and effective self−governance; and
Whereas, corporations are not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, and the people have never granted constitutional rights to corporations, nor have the people decreed that corporations have authority that exceeds the authority of the people of the United States; and
Whereas, corporations are artificial entities, created for the purpose of conducting commerce inside and outside of our country’s borders and should be designated as such, and
Whereas, interpretation of the U.S. Constitution by appointed Supreme Court justices to include corporations in the term “persons” has long denied the peoples’ exercise of self−governance by endowing corporations with constitutional protections intended for the people; and
Whereas, the illegitimate judicial bestowal of political rights upon corporations usurps basic human and constitutional rights guaranteed to human persons; and
Whereas, corporations are not and have never been human beings, and therefore they do not vote in elections and should not be categorized as persons for purposes related to elections for public office; and
Whereas, the recent Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, that rolled back the legal limits on corporate spending in the electoral process creates an unequal playing field and allows unlimited corporate spending to influence elections, candidate selection, and policy decisions, and to sway votes, and forces elected officials to divert their attention from the peoples’ business, or even vote against the interest of their human constituents, in order to ensure competitive campaign funds for their own re-elections; and
Whereas, tens of thousands of people, organizations, and municipalities across the nation are joining with the Move to Amend movement to call for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to abolish corporate constitutional rights and the doctrine of money as free speech;
Now, therefore be it resolved that the members of the governing body of this local municipality, call on the North Carolina General Assembly to petition Congress that the U.S. Constitution be amended to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutionally protected political speech.
