Skip to comments.Obama replaces Andrew Jackson on the $20 Bill

The State of Arizona passed a law to uphold federal law and to protect their citizens but the liberal DC establishment, instead of supporting the right of Arizona to enact the legislation is acting full bore against them.
First, lets get the media and open border politician's spin corrected.
There is nothing in the Arizona law contrary to Federal Law. The State of Arizona is acting in concert and protection of the the US Constitution and law.
Today, an article in David Horowitzs blog describes it.
Tragically, the very powers that are Constitutionally supposed to protect America from foreign invasion are lined up to ruin her. It is already a felony to be in this country illegally, but the federal government, from the administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and now Barack Obama, have obstinately refused to protect and secure our borders.
Its not the first time a president and his regime of these United States sided against a sovereign state, refusing to enforce federal law.
Its not the first time a president acted outside of federal authority to distribute to his supporters the wealth and property of other Americans. Like Andrew Jackson, Obama the Democrat, is seeking his place at the bottom of the presidential history heap by disregarding the rule of law.
The question is, will the State of Arizona survive and and be allowed to protect its citizens, its culture, it's history, its laws.
Law, Law understood, and Law executed
This is the simple principle adopted by the Cherokee Nation, located in the NE corner within the State of Georgia, by 1819.
First was the Law. Then law must be understood by the people being ruled by it. But with no execution the law is empty and invites anarchy. When it becomes so complicated, no one understands it.
Seems simple enough, right? Not when special interests are regarded above the rule of law.
These Cherokee, many of them the half breed off spring of Scottish immigrants who fought for the Revolution, and members of the Ridge Party, named for Cherokee leader Major Ridge, had a Constitution copied after our US. Constitution, a legislature and courts. They were prosperous, Christian, independent, modern, and relied on nothing from the Federal government for their care. They had a Newspaper, the Cherokee Phoenix, distributed world wide, in the Queens English as well as the Cherokee Language. They named their children after founding fathers they regarded with the utmost respect: James Madison Bell, Benjamin Franklin Adair, and so on.

After his election, Jackson pushed and signed the Indian Removal Act into law in 1830. The Act authorized the President to negotiate treaties to buy tribal lands in the east in exchange for lands further west, outside of existing U.S. state borders.
While not popular in the North, and opposed by Americans like Congressman David Crockett and Ralph Waldo Emerson , Jacksons Indian Removal Act was popular in the South, where population growth and the discovery of gold on Cherokee land had increased pressure for removal of the Cherokee. The state of Georgia became involved in a contentious jurisdictional dispute with the Cherokees, culminating in the 1832 U.S. Supreme Court decision Worcester v. Georgia, which ruled that Georgia could not impose its laws upon Cherokee tribal lands.
Their own New England educated Cherokee attorneys fought and won the decision in the Supreme Court, which held the Cherokee Nation was indeed a sovereign state, who, as long as they held to Constitutional guidelines of federal law, could not be invaded or removed.
Jackson is often quoted regarding this decision, as having said, "John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it!"
Of course, Jackson knew the Supreme Court has no power of enforcement; he as the top executive is responsible for that. He refused. Jackson was the peoples president, or so its said, representing American pioneers of simple means in the South and the movement west. The citizens of Georgia, aided by their Militia, continued to move into modern, European styled Cherokee homes and productive plantations unimpeded by the Federal government. Those who objected, white and Cherokee within their territory, were jailed or killed.
The rule of law was ignored in favor of lining the pockets of the people who put Jackson in office and invaded the Cherokee Nation. The result was the forced removal on the Trail of Tears of tens of thousands of Cherokee, other tribes, slaves and the white men who stood with them.
The Cherokee State was cleansed in favor of the invaders and stands as a stark historical reminder of the fragility of any state sovereignty.
No, there is no formal movement to replace Jackson with Obama on the $20 bill, that we know of. But there is a concerted effort by Obama and his squatter support squad of liberal socialists, some of them republicans, to destroy the right of any state to protect its citizens from invasion.
History does indeed repeat itself, if we allow it. Where will the good people of Arizona or any state, of all races, go if they are not allowed to enforce their laws?
"All Nations have their rises & their falls. This has been the case with us.
Within the orbit the U. States move the States & within these we move in a little circle, dependent on the great center.
We may live this way fifty years and then we shall by Natural Causes merge in & mingle with the U. States.......
Cherokee blood, if not destroyed, will win its courses in beings of fair complexions, who will read that their ancestors became civilized under the frowns of misfortune & the causes of their enemies." -

It’s contrary to Federal POLICY (they don’t WANT to enforce the laws on the laws on the books).

Go to Facebook, if you play there, and tell them what you think.
Petition to PUT BARACK OBAMA ON THE $20 BILL
[snip] his is a petition to replace Andrew Jackson with President Barack Obama. While Andrew Jackson tamed the west, he also murdered millions of native Americans with his policies. Its time to wipe this guy off of our most used currency, for while history is history, our values have changed to diversity, teamwork, equality and service. Barack Obama’s face alone is a symbol of these values. Lets have him on the $20! Future generations will thank us!

You may as well. I did!
The money has been a joke all along. The Federal Reserve isn’t part of the Government and has no reserve.
You might as well put Al Capone on the money or use laffy taffy as currency.
Stolen, thank you.
Jackson may have murdered one of my ancestors. Obama is out to murder me ;-)
The difference being is that Andy Jackson had his good points. Still trying to figure out Obama’s.
“The difference being is that Andy Jackson had his good points. Still trying to figure out Obamas.”
Jackson certainly put the bankers in their place.
Thanks AuntB. Its done
He was a rogue and a brute. But like TR, he was a patriot thru and thru despite his wild hairs
My contribution for the day.
“He was a rogue and a brute. But like TR, he was a patriot thru and thru despite his wild hairs”
I have to disagree with you. Jackson was corrupt, just like Obama...looking out for his $$$$ special interests.
Yes, he fought the good fight at Horseshoe Bend/1812 war.
But kind of like McCain being elevated to where he is because of being a ‘war hero’. BTW, The Ridge Cherokees fought beside Jackson in that war, saved his life. After the war, he still took their land.
Almost 30,000 now.
Anyone with a drop of cherokee blood (which I proudly claim) should have a genetic built-in distrust of government.
