Fragging Americans

November 1, 2011
By

Today the great state of South Carolina joined a growing list of states that are on the receiving end of Justice Department lawsuits. Even as the Obama administration systematically dismantles whatever superficial immigration enforcement measures still exist, including the deportation of violent criminals, Barack Obama’s chief crony at the Department of Justice, Eric Holder, exacts revenge upon states that defy the Executive Branch’s de facto policy of wholesale amnesty. What began as a vendetta against Arizona has spread East. Governor Nikki Haley needs to be commended for standing up for the rights of South Carolinians instead of illegal alien criminals and their supporters. Regardless of whether South Carolina’s law withstands future legal appeals, the fact that individual states have not been cowed into submission by President Obama’s crusade against Americans, with Arizona the first target, is cause for hope. May the rest of this country’s governors emulate the example she and Jan Brewer have set.

    What a mess. I would like to remind your readers of what Benjamin Franklin (and later Albert Einstein) referred to as “the definition of insanity,” that is, “doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome.”

    Governor Haley has an opportunity that is not unique in the past two years, but an opportunity not exercised by ANY of the other governors and State’s Attorneys General being sued by the federal government over State laws.

    Article III, Section 2, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution is VERY clear. The lawsuit against South Carolina is un-Constitutional, as it has been filed in a court that has ZERO Constitutional authority to hear or rule in the case.

    The same applies to the lawsuits challenging Obama Care. The U.S. Constitution is the “supreme Law of the Land,” not precedent, and not statutes that are themselves, in the words of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Marshall: “repugnant to the Constitution.”

    Our research on this fundamental States’ Right issue is unimpeachable, very thorough, and supported by Federalist 81, a trustee of the Supreme Court Historical Society, former Lt. Governor of New York, Betsy McCaughey, who has a PhD in Constitutional history, and numerous other “honest” Constitutional scholars.

    Governor Haley should tell the Holder Justice Department, to respectfully “go away,” until such time as he files his complaint against South Carolina in a court that has jurisdiction to hear the case. PLEASE visit the Patriot Coalition project site Re-Join or Die, ( http://rejoinordie.com ) and read the “Scarlet Letters.”

    Also, please visit the Patriot Coalition Blog at: http://blog.patriotcoalition.com to learn more about “original jurisdiction,” and what it means. We cannot restore Constitutional governance by ignoring the Constitution.
