President Trump was obviously joking about Democrats at his State of the Union speech exhibiting treason, but what is the constitutional definition of that serious charge?
Lawmakers in Idaho voted unanimously Wednesday morning to move forward the Restoring Constitutional Governance Act, which would prohibit the indefinite detainment of Americans by the federal government or anyone else in that state. If passed into law, the bill would nullify unconstitutional provisions of the infamous 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which purported to authorize the capture and imprisonment of citizens by the military without any semblance of due process. While some local governments in Idaho have already passed similar measures, activists and lawmakers say it is important that residents all over the state be protected from the unconstitutional abuses by the federal government. After being approved in a committee hearing, the measure now moves on to be formally considered by the legislature.
An increasing number of leftists are advocating an Article V convention of the states — to scrap our present Constitution.
With President Donald Trump driving the establishment Swamp insane with what has been dubbed “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” the enemies of his “America First” agenda are now hoping to turn the tables by claiming the commander-in-chief is crazy. Indeed, as predicted by astute political observers and operatives before it began, the Deep State has now resorted to using lies, quackery, and fake news to cast doubt on President Trump's mental stability. It is all part of a plot to use an obscure provision of the U.S. Constitution to remove the president from office. Experts predict it will fail.
An amendment to the state's statutes would turn Tennessee into a sanctuary for the Second Amendment.
The Trump administration has decided to delay — but not yet scrap — a draconian and widely condemned “regulation” from the Obama administration known as the “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” (AFFH) rule. The scheme, which became a lighting rod of controversy, aims to gather massive amounts of demographic data on every community in America, then use the awesome powers of the federal government to redistribute people based on race and income — all to advance some nebulous notion of “diversity” and “fairness.” On both sides of the debate, though, there is an expectation that the recently unveiled delay could be a stop-gap measure while the rule is totally abolished.
Almost immediately after announcing a change in policy that could lead to a federal crackdown on marijuana users and sellers even in states where pot prohibition has been ended, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions sparked a bipartisan outcry. Perhaps more importantly, he also prompted renewed bipartisan support for one of the U.S. Constitution's most ignored and most important provisions. Indeed, concerns about the 10th Amendment, which reserves all powers not delegated to the federal government to the states or the people, were at the top of the list of complaints — even among many liberals and people who generally tend to be federal supremacists on other matters.
California is already flouting federal immigration law with its “sanctuary” status. Now it’s also ignoring the most American of laws — the First Amendment — prosecuting a man simply for posting five anti-Muslim messages to Facebook.
As 2018 begins, the surveillance state is gearing up for even greater surveillance of American citizens. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is setting aside $1 billion for a biometric scanning program to capture the faces of those leaving the country at airports. That scanning includes the faces of American citizens, even though DHS has no legal authority to conduct that surveillance.
It's just a matter of time before national reciprocity for concealed carry becomes the law of the land. It could happen sooner rather than later.
