Kagan and the pencil-knecked Ginsberg have the demise of this nation in their sights. Kagan apparently fell asleep in most of her classes and her ignorance shows clearly.
—”We don’t think it’s in the court’s place to look at the budgetary implications,” Kneedler replied.—
I’m glad SOMEONE gets it. Their job is to look at the CONSTITUTIONAL implications, explicitly, and let the budgetary chips (and all other chips) fall where they may.
There is hope in the number of states(29) that has sued the federal govt.
Now if we could only get 9 more, then all power can be taken from the govt. 38 states can throw out Congress, POTUS, over-ride the SCOTUS.
Ultimate trump card.
That is all well and good, however the 10th Amendment to the Constitution states that any power not given directly to the Federal Government is reserved to the States.
How about we go back to that for a change.
I’ve been saying it for a while.
Ruth Bader Buzzi?
The States became wards of the Federal government in the 17th Amendment. You effectively went to a House of Representatives and a House of Super Representatives. The voice of the States was lost in the Senate.
This problem started with the institution of the income tax and was made infinitely worse with the introduction of direct withholding. Once the Feds could rab all the money first evryone was put in the position of being supplicants on their knees with begging bowls.
The seventeenth amendment left the states defenseless against the feds.
And modern national media is able to influence senatorial elections (IE:macaca) so they don’t even truly represent the general populace of the state.
Justice Kagan has compromised the Court’s integrity
by interrupting the pleading lawyer
IN A CASE FROM WHICH SHE SHOULD HAVE RECUSED HERSELF.
But the Court has no shame, and no interest
in integrity or Honor or truth or justice
or the American way.
When Obummer told his audience “we are working under the radar” about gun control, I truly believe the Obamacare has much to do with this statement. If it is instituted we will find 50% of the causes of expenses are from not “eating your peas”. We will be mandated to eat peas. 30% is from being too old. Kill off the dross. 20% is from gunshots, so get rid of the guns. Now, we will all be happy and prosperous. This is mandated by the law you know.
Rule 47. Reference to “State Court” and “State Law”
The term “state court,” when used in these Rules, includes the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the courts of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the local courts of Guam. References in these Rules to the statutes of a State include the statutes of the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Territory of Guam.
The states DID NOT give it up voluntarily.
The states LOST their sovereignty when the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT began printing PRIVATE CHECKS (Federal Reserve Notes) as counterfeit and then CONFISCATED THE GOLD that was the only thing that might compete with FRN’s.
Once that was done, the Feda were free to print as much as they wanted, and bribe/coerce.force any state at all to do WHATEVER the feds decided was right, or what would bring them and their buddies the best deal.
Before the FRA (Federal Reserve Act), the STATES (the people) created the wealth and chose to (or chose not to) give it to the Federal Government).
After that, the Federal government (actually, it’s agents) created the wealth and made the States (the PEOPLE!!!) beg for it.
This all began when the Senate which was suppose to represent the interests of the states was turned into a more elite version of the house.
Did the states give it up or the Feds took it? There are a lot of state cases the fed’s overturned and took power. Also, the feds passed mandates on states and had to pay for them.
Not clear to me just what Roberts means by this. Have the states forever forfeited sovereignty by taking fed cash, or is he saying the Court needs to start ruling against that?
Even Ronaldus Magnus stooped to this sneaky little maneuver to get the states to raise their drinking ages to please MADD.
this is what I’ve been saying we need do take back our towns counties and states and get off the teat then the gov will shrink.
Maybe it's me and I'm not smart enough to understand enlightened jurisprudence, but Kagen sounds like a dumbass here...
I would imagine the states have not had much choice along the way. It seems the Federal monster has gradually taken the power away, with the help of the judiciary at all levels. Yes, some blame goes to the states, but the power was largely taken by force.
