If the government of the United States is unable or unwilling to perform its Constitutional duty to defend the states against invasion, what justification does it have to exist?
From dedicated patriot, Virginia Brooks, who provides much valuable information, comes this very interesting item:
> “THE BROOKS REPORT”
>> In a stunning development that could potentially send the nation into a
>> Constitutional crisis, an astute attorney who is well-versed in
>> Constitutional law states that the ruling against the state of Arizona by
>> Judge Susan Bolton concerning its new immigration law is illegal.
>> (Daniel Bayer/CBS News via Getty Images). The inept U.S. Attorney-General
>> Eric Holder.
>> The attorney in question submitted her assertion in a special article in
>> Canada Free Press. Her argument states in part,
>> “Does anyone read the U.S. Constitution these days? American lawyers
>> read it. Federal Judge Susan R. Bolton apparently has never read it. Same
>> goes for our illustrious Attorney General Eric Holder. But this lawyer
>> read it and she is going to show you something in Our Constitution which
>> as plain as the nose on your face.
>> “Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says:
>> “In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls,
>> those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have
>> Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court
>> shall have appellate Jurisdiction.”
>> In other words, the Judge in the Arizona case has absolutely no
>> Constitutional jurisdiction over the matter upon which she ruled. As the
>> Constitution makes abundantly clear, only the U.S. Supreme Court can
>> rulings that involve a state.
>> This means that neither Judge Bolton nor the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals
>> San Francisco, to which the case is being appealed, have any legal
>> whatsoever to rule on the issue.
>> Thus, U.S. Attorney-General Eric Holder filed the federal government’s
>> lawsuit against the state of Arizona in a court that has no authority to
>> hear the case.
>> The attorney whose heads-up thinking concerning the Constitution provides
>> the legal remedy for dealing with this blatant disregard for
>> law in the article at Canada Free Press, which can be accessed at the
>> In a related development, another explosive discovery was made by those

>> allows an individual state to wage war against a neighboring country in
>> event of an invasion, should there be a dangerous delay or inaction on
>> part of the federal government. This information was cited by United
>> Patriots of America.
>> From Article I, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution, we find these words:
>> “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, engage in War, unless
>> actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
>> No one who is actually familiar with the crisis at the southern border
>> deny that Arizona is endangered by the relentless assault of lawless
>> invaders who ignore our laws, inundate our schools and medical facilities
>> with unpaid bills, and even endanger the very lives of citizens with
>> criminal drug cartels that engage in kidnapping, murder, human
>> and other mayhem, including aiming missile and grenade launchers directly
>> U.S. border cities from just across the Mexican border.
>> This is every bit as much of an invasion as the nation of Iran sending in
>> fleet of warships to the Port of Charleston.
>> The Constitution that forms the basis of the rule of law in this country
>> says that Arizona has legal right to protect itself in the case of
>> or delay on the part of the federal government, including waging war in
>> This, when coupled with the clear Constitutional mandate that only the
>> Supreme Court hear cases involving the states, should be ample legal
>> for attorneys representing Arizona to go after the federal government
>> Governor Jan Brewer and the stalwart members of the Arizona legislature
>> ample legal reason to stand firm against the illegal bullying of an
>> arrogant, lawless federal government.
This is a very fascinating item of information. As the commentator notes, Judge Bolton had no authority over this case.
It should have gone to the Supreme Court immediately. I wonder how the enemy will weasel out of the clear wording of the Constitution. Interestingly no other source of which I am aware has brought up this truly shocking issue.
I recommend that you get on Virginia’s email list by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE BUCKEYE FIREARMS ASSOCIATION
Here is my message to them, titled YOU ARE WORSE THAN WHORES. I recommend that you have nothing to do with them. (To those who received this twice, it was unavoidable without subjecting me to a lot more work.)
For almost a hundred years, the American people have been losing their liberties, especially in the most vital area of our God-given right to keep and bear arms. One of the most important causes of this loss of liberty has been the corrupt Republocrat duopoly which has consistently compromised and gnawed away at our liberties. Only the Libertarian Party has taken a totally principled, uncompromising stand to restore the right to keep and bear arms as well as our other God-given liberties.
I recognize your right as an organization to endorse whoever you wish, even if your criteria for doing so include expediency as opposed to adherence to principle.
Your dishonest candidate ratings totally ignored the existence of numerous Libertarian candidates in Ohio and a few other pro-liberty candidates, some of whom took the time to fill out your questionnaire since we believe that candidates have an obligation to voters to make our positions known. Your cowardly, unmanly action leaves me no other choice than to state that you are evil, rotten puppets of the Republocrat establishment which has brought us to depression, a police state and to the verge of economic collapse and World War III, too cowardly to acknowledge our existence and WORSE THAN WHORES, most of whom at least provide services which their customers feel are useful. Until you repent and turn from your wicked ways, I will cease all support of your corrupt, putrid organization and urge everyone I know to do likewise.
It is false friends of liberty such as yourselves who do a hundred times more harm than our relatively open communist or fascist enemies such as Obama, Pelosi or Reid. I hope that you go to hell. You are well on the way.
You have permission to reprint my comments in full without alteration or addition, although you probably don’t have the manhood to do so. (End of message.)
LIBERTARIANS: TAX CUTTING IS US
The Green Party candidate for governor advocated higher taxes according to a report on NPR which I heard Saturday. He said that the only alternative to $8 billion in higher taxes was drastic slashing of all government programs. We need to stress to the voters that we Libertarians are psychologically most prepared of any candidates and have the least inhibitions about slashing, chopping, hacking and eviscerating spending. We are the spending cut party.
