Supreme Court -the Despotism of an Oligarchy
Now let us go back and refresh our understanding of algebra.
If All legislative powers are vested in Congress how much legislative power does the Supreme Court have?
The Supreme Court is nine political appointees. They were not elected by the people. Our constitution provides that laws will be made by legislators, who are elected by the people, in the legislative branch.
Now let us go back to Article. I. Section. 1. Paragraph 1, sentence 1 of the Constitution for the United States of America and pay attention to a different concept:
Read it again BUT Now let us direct our attention to the words “herein granted”.
Have we forgotten who it was that GRANTED those legislative Powers to that Congress of the United States?
The sovereign States existed before the federal government existed. The sovereign States created the federal government as a servant, to whom these sovereign states voluntarily delegated 21 duties, which were defined as “enumerated powers”.
Those who quote the so called Supremacy Clause generally ignore the part about laws having to BE MADE IN PURSUANCE to the Constitution. This is done with the intention of claiming that unconstitutional laws, or even Supreme Court decisions that are not even laws, can be construed as being supreme over state laws.
Saying that these people are stupid would be a compliment.
The federal government was also told, quite clearly, that there were no powers GRANTED in any other areas, other than those 21 “enumerated powers”.
This clear reservation is found in the 10th amendment of The U.S. Constitution:
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.
Please remember that the first 10 amendments to the constitution are also known as the “Bill of Rights”. What you will find in the “Bill of Rights” is a list of PROHIBITIONS that were placed upon the servant federal government, by its creator, the states.
What the 10th amendment does is to basically patch up any possible leaks in the clearly limited powers which the sovereign States had authorized to their newly created servant. The 10th amendment basically says that the federal government IS NOT GRANTED any powers other than those that are enumerated in this constitution.
What part of the constitution gives the federal government the authority to order a state or a county to issue a marriage license?
What part of the constitution gives the federal government the authority to order anyone to buy health insurance?
What part of the constitution gives the Supreme Court, the President, or any other part of the federal government the authority to violate our constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms?
What part of the constitution gives the federal government the authority to order anyone to be vaccinated?
The States created the federal government, and authorized the federal government to perform a few well defined, and very limited functions. The federal government is prohibited from doing ANYTHING ELSE.
Hitler’s words were the laws. The Declaration of Independence was illegal. In the final analysis no tyranny will ever condone the effective defense of freedom.
Our Bill of Rights is replete with phrases such as “Congress shall make no law” and “shall not be infringed”.
King George said that our Founding Fathers were traitors.
Hitler called the advocates of liberty traitors.
The Tyrant’s definition of patriotism is the support of tyranny.
Moral people cannot learn about what is right or wrong by listening to politicians, or by listening to their political appointees, even if they are judges.
In 1820 Thomas Jefferson wrote: “To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”
Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:277
“In denying the right [the Supreme Court usurps] of exclusively explaining the Constitution, I go further than [others] do, if I understand rightly [this] quotation from the Federalist of an opinion that ‘the judiciary is the last resort in relation to the other departments of the government, but not in relation to the rights of the parties to the compact under which the judiciary is derived.’ If this opinion be sound, then indeed is our Constitution a complete felo de se [act of suicide]. For intending to establish three departments, coordinate and independent, that they might check and balance one another, it has given, according to this opinion, to one of them alone the right to prescribe rules for the government of the others, and to that one, too, which is unelected by and independent of the nation. For experience has already shown that the impeachment it has provided is not even a scare-crow… The Constitution on this hypothesis is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.” –Thomas Jefferson to Spencer Roane, 1819. ME 15:212
In 1798 Jefferson and Madison drafted The Kentucky Resolutions and the Virginia Resolutions Relative to the Alien and Sedition Act. 10 Nov. 1798Writings 17:379–80, 385–91
Thomas Jefferson wrote: 1. Resolved, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a General Government for special purposes,–delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral party, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.
The important and obvious reality is that the Alien and Sedition Act, the Fugitive Slave Act, and myriads of other outrageously unconstitutional usurpations have been perfectly acceptable to the Supreme Court. The most outrageous unconstitutional usurpations of our own time are Obamacare, The Patriot Act and the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). Any semi-literate, with an IQ above room temperature, could have quickly determined that none of the usurpations mentioned here are even close to being constitutional.
We should understand by now that the Supreme Court will never protect us from federal usurpation. The Supreme Court is A PART OF the federal government. All Supreme Court judges are political appointees, who got their jobs from the federal machine. Anyone who thinks that the Supreme Court will protect us from federal usurpation would have to believe that the fox will guard his hen house.
Thomas Jefferson said:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
We add this:
“The battle for liberty is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back.
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty.” John Perna

The National Security Agency is the only part of the government that actually LISTENS to you. Do you wish that the government would read the Constitution? Just email it privately to your friends. What we formerly called “freedom of speech” we now call the “right to remain silent.” BUT they will now claim that you DO NOT HAVE the right to remain silent… if THEY are asking the questions.
The Patriot Act is constitutionally illegal, but was signed into law takes away your rights and turns them into privileges, which the government can grant or take away at will. If you remember we were told that this would just be temporary. Now it has been made permanent. But no one protested did they?
