Montana, Arizona and Tennessee Take the Lead on Broad-Based Nullification
The Post & Email ^ | February 24, 2011 | JB Williams

(Feb. 24, 2011) — As the battle for states’ rights heat up across the country, Montana and Arizona have leaped out into the lead by introducing the first broad-based State Nullification Reaffirmation Act designed to return the power to the people and their states and rein in federal government abuses of misinterpreted power.

The Model Legislation was researched and created by the Constitutional Justice Division of Wyoming-based United States Patriots Union.

This model legislation aims to reaffirm and reassert broad-based sovereign state’s rights under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution by providing both the constitutional grounds and legislative methods by which states can swiftly nullify any past, present or future unconstitutional acts of the federal government.

The primary parts of the model include the following;

a) Establish the constitutional grounds for state nullification

b) Establish a swift method for nullification of any unconstitutional federal act, past, present or future

c) Establish that only the US Supreme Court has “original jurisdiction” under Article III of the US Constitution

d) Establish that the people (not the courts) have the final word

e) Establish the very limited role and power of the federal government under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments

f) Reject modern expansions of power via misinterpretations of the commerce, welfare and supremacy clauses

g) Regain state and citizen control over the runaway FED

The Arizona bill SB 1433, passed out of committee last week on a 5-2 vote and is reportedly headed to the floor of the Arizona legislature this week. Senator Lori Klein is leading the effort in Arizona.

This should not be taken lightly, but two clear cases of the need for state nullification are

1) Abortion: There is NOTHING in the Constitution to support but very much to denounce this infanticide of over 50 million innocents. ENOUGH ALREADY.

2) ObamaCare: Way beyond the delegated powers delegated by the people and the states to the national government and enumerated in the Constitution

This is where it starts. Not at the federal level. They (feds) sue, then secession is the next.

The feds try the “You aint gettin no federal funding” BS? Then seize all federal lands and parks.

Yeah ol’ Andy is spinning in his grave. On the other hand, John C. Calhoun is wearing a smile of vindication...

The States are finally rising up against the federal government AND the unions. This is long overdue.

What’s amazing is that Calhoun was Jackson’s vice president.

That was long before Presidential candidates had any say regarding who would be their running mates. Also, in that election, Calhoun was the only candidate for Vice President.

It’s the only way to go...

If supremes rule against the costitution, nullify

If it’s bad aw and you are the jury...nullify

Our founders gave us many tools.

Yes, the selection of VPs was quite different than today.

What I was getting at is the effect that Calhoun’s championing of nullification must have had on Jackson while he was preparing to invade South Carolina.

Jackson was probably the most hot tempered man ever to be President. He had led a violent life, something Calhoun surely knew. You have to admire Calhoun’s sheer audacity, crossing Jackson was akin to prodding a tiger with a stick.

Uhhhh, I’m a little slow. Does that mean you want to be added to the 10th Amendment ping list??? At first reading I took it to mean something like “GAME ON” or “IT’S ON” or somesuch, so I thought I better ask.

Won’t work anymore; there’s nothing to give, only take. A threat today would be countered by the states impounding the gas taxes they collect and remit.

I thought after reading this:

If you want on or off the ping list just say the word.

that ON would be the word to get me on the list.

Sorry if I wasn't clear enough & thanks for putting me on the list.

Federal funding is no more that a bribe. Where does the Fed get its funds? From the States of course.

The states should assume it constitutionally guaranteed functions or before too long the country will be known as The United America.

The rubber will hit the road when the state(s) decide that their citizens are affiliated with the state and that the feds have no jurisdiction to tax individuals directly; then protect those individuals from tax liens, imprisonment and seizures. If the individual never goes onto federal territory, the fedgov has no jurisdiction - the county sheriff does.
