    "A panel of appeals court judges in Philadelphia on Thursday unanimously affirmed a lower court's ruling, upholding the district's practice of allowing transgender boys and girls to use the same restrooms and locker rooms as other boys and girls."

    Has anybody bothered to ask the local legal voters what they think about this policy?

    Why didn’t the article point out the following?

    As a consequence of the corrupt, post-17th Amendment ratification Congress making bad trade deals for many decades, job opportunities went overseas.

    It’s like we’re being expected to believe that the lawless, welfare-promoting Obama Administration never happened.

    Insights welcome.

    Remember in November. We need to elect a Trump-supporting Congress.

  • Minimum-wage protesters take Fight for $15 to McDonald’s West Loop headquarters (Chicago)

    Amendment10 to simpson96; All

    The minimum wage protestors lead me to question if they are being indoctrinated that minimum wage is in their DNA.

    In fact, I would appreciate if any financial management-savvy FReepers could address why these protestors don’t simply buy McDonalds stock?

    On second thought, $162.46 per stock (rough equivalent $15/hr for 10 hrs) is likely a roadblock for min. wage people.

    Could employees possibly buy fractional stocks through McDonalds?

    Insights welcome.

    If you do so, please let us know how they responded.

    "the Senate has accomplished very little this year"

    FR: Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

    Patriots are reminded that, in peacetime, one of the very few domestic responsibilities that the Founding States have expressly constitutionally delegated to the now very corrupt federal government is to run the US Mail Service (1.8.7).

    • "Article I, Section 8, Clause 7: To establish Post Offices and post Roads;"

    • "... the care of the property, the liberty, and the life of the citizen, under the solemn sanction of an oath imposed by your Federal Constitution, is in the States, and not in the Federal Government [emphasis added]." —Rep. John Bingham, Congressional Globe (See middle of third column.)

    So the goal of patriots for hopefully two terms for Pres. Trump is the following.

    Patriots need to support Trump by electing new faces to Congress in the 2018 midterm elections, new patriot lawmakers that will work with Trump to surrender state powers that previous Congresses have stolen from the states back to the states.

    The states ultimately need to repeal the 16th and ill-conceived 17th Amendments to make the surrender of state powers as permanent as possible.

    Once this is done, and military, trade and treaty duties aside, hopefully all bigwig members of the three branches will be able to use the government time that their predecessors used to spend interfering in the affairs of the sovereign states to take turns playing golf with Pres. Trump on a daily basis until well after his 2nd term is ended. (Obama had the right idea with golf courses imo.)

  • 19 states sue Trump admin to keep funding Planned Parenthood

    05/21/2018 12:52:20 PM PDT · 19 of 29
    Amendment10 to SeekAndFind; All

    If the 19 states were making sure that school children were being taught the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers as the Founding States had intended for those powers to be understood, then school children would be able to argue the following against federal funding for abortion.

    Simply put, since the states have never expressly constitutionally delegated to the feds the specific power to tax and spend for abortion purposes, such funding is unconstitutional.

    More specifically, as a consequence of low-information voters not being taught the fed’s constitutionally limited powers, corrupt, post-17th Amendment ratification career lawmakers are able exploit such voters by promising them unconstitutional things like abortion funding in order to get themselves elected and reelected.

    In other words, misguided, low-Information voters abuse their voting power by using it to unconstitutional expand the already unconstitutionally big federal government’s powers, unconstitutional federal funding for abortions in this example.

    We really need to get rid of the ill-conceived 17th Amendment.

    The 16th Amendment can disappear too.

    Amendment10 to Zakeet; All
    With all due respect to Judge Pirro, please consider the following about the big, bad Justice Department.

    The Justice Department did not establish Congress. Congress established the Justice Department. So all roads of corruption in the federal government lead to Congress imo. This is because Congress has the constitutional authority to deal with people like AG Jeff Sessions.

    H O W E V E R ...

    The problem is that we’re still stuck with a corrupt, post-17th Amendment ratification, anti-Trump Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration, this Congress stubbornly refusing to do its job to aggressively investigate possible problems with people like Sessions.

    The remedy …

    Patriots need to finish the job that they started when they elected Trump president.

    More specifically, patriots now need to be making sure that there are plenty of Trump-supporting, state sovereignty-respecting patriot candidates on the 2018 primary ballots, candidates who will commit to using Congress’s power to impeach and remove bad-apple public servants from office, and pink-slip career lawmakers by sending patriot candidate lawmakers to DC on election day.

    And until the states wise up and repeal the ill-conceived 17th Amendment, as evidenced by concerns about the integrity of the outcome of Alabama's and Pennsylvania's special elections, patriot candidates need to win elections by a large enough margin to compensate for possible deep state ballot box fraud, associated MSM scare tactics, and interference from people like Soros.

    "President Trump’s Destroying the Post-17th Amendment Ratification, Unconstitutionally Big Federal Government As We Know It: Rebuilding May be Impossible"

    There! Fixed it.

    Patriots are reminded that Pres. Trump cannot drain the swamp all by himself. In order for Trump to completely drain the swamp, patriots must give Trump a state sovereignty-respecting Congress that will support him in the 2018 midterm elections.

    Also, we ultimately need to get rid of the 17th Amendment.

    The 16th Amendment can disappear too.

  • Supreme Court Rediscovers States Rights, But…

    05/16/2018 10:47:10 AM PDT · 5 of 6
    Amendment10 to Liberty7732; All
    "Alito says, “The legislative powers granted to Congress are sizeable [??? emphasis added], ..."

    With all due respect to Justice Alito, whatever law school he got indoctrinated at, I hope that somebody other than his family paid his tuition.

    As pointed out by James Madison, the few legislative powers that the states have expressly granted to Congress, most of these powers listed in Congress’s constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers, are deliberately not sizable, particularly where domestic policy is concerned.

    • “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”—James Madison

    • ”... the care of the property, the liberty, and the life of the citizen, under the solemn sanction of an oath imposed by your Federal Constitution, is in the States, and not in the Federal Government [emphases added].” —Rep. John Bingham, Congressional Globe, 1866. (See about middle of 3rd column.)

    • "From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added].” —United States v. Butler, 1936.

    In fact, where post-17th Amendment ratification federal domestic policy is concerned, patriots can bet that if a given policy is not reasonably related to the US Mail Service (1.8.7) then the policy is unconstitutional, and probably be right most of the time.

    The remedy for the unconstitutionally big federal government on our backs …

    Patriots need to finish the job that that they started when they elected Trump president.

    Amendment10 to SeekAndFind; All
    Thank you for referencing that article SeekAndFind. As usual, please note that the following critique is directed at the article and not at you.

    As a side note to this thread, please consider the following.

    The Electoral College favoring one political party or the other is beside the point imo. This is because many states are wrongly not complying with 12th Amendment (12A) procedures for electoral votes.

    “Winner take all” state laws for electoral votes are one example of unconstitutional non-compliance with 12A imo.

    Consider that the name of the Progressive Movement game is for crook politicians to maintain control of state powers and uniquely associated state revenues that the corrupt, post-17th Amendment (17A) ratification Congress has stolen from the states, state revenues stolen by means of unconstitutional federal taxes.

    • “Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States.” Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

    • ”From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added].” —United States v. Butler, 1936.

    • "The smart crooks long ago figured out that getting themselves elected to federal office to make unconstitutional tax laws to fill their pockets is a much easier way to make a living than robbing banks." —me

    • "Federal career lawmakers probably laugh all the way to the bank to deposit bribes for putting loopholes for the rich and corporations in tax appropriations laws, Congress actually not having the express constitutional authority to make most appropriations laws where domestic policy is concerned. Such laws are based on stolen state powers and uniquely associated stolen state revenues." —me

    But since compliance with the 12A electoral vote process probably makes it very difficult for the Progressive Movement to maintain control of state powers and revenues stolen by the federal government, misguided Progressive Movement states have effectively politically repealed 12A.

    Corrections, insights welcome.

    The remedy for this mess …

    Patriots need to finish the job that they started when they elected Trump president.

    More specifically, patriots now need to be making sure that there are plenty of Trump-supporting, state sovereignty-respecting patriot candidates on the 2018 primary ballots, candidates who will commit to respecting Congress's limited power to appropriate taxes, evidenced by the Gibbons v. Ogden excerpt above.

    Patriots then need to pink-slip career lawmakers by sending patriot candidate lawmakers to DC on election day so that they can get to work on a constitutional Article I, Section 8-compliant 1040EZ for all taxpaying citizens.

    And until the states wise up and repeal the ill-conceived 17th Amendment, as evidenced by concerns about the integrity of the outcome of Alabama's and Pennsylvania's special elections, patriot candidates need to win elections by a large enough margin to compensate for possible deep state ballot box fraud, associated MSM scare tactics, and interference from people like Soros.

    "“We continue to witness historic obstruction by the minority party [??? emphasis added] when it comes to funding the federal government and confirming the president’s nominees,” the letter said."

    FR: Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

    Patriots are reminded that the biggest obstruction for federal funding that post-17th Amendment (17A) ratification lawmakers are blatantly ignoring is the Constitution.

    • "Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States."Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

    • "The smart crooks long ago figured out that getting themselves elected to federal office to make unconstitutional tax laws to fill their pockets is a much easier way to make a living than robbing banks." —me

    • "Federal career lawmakers probably laugh all the way to the bank to deposit bribes for putting loopholes for the rich and corporations in tax appropriations laws, Congress actually not having the express constitutional authority to make most appropriations laws where domestic policy is concerned. Such laws are based on stolen state powers and uniquely associated stolen state revenues." —me

    Consider that although the Constitution mandates supermajority votes for the Senate on certain issues, unlike the House, the Constitution uniquely guarantees each senator one vote.

    • ”Article I, Section 2, Clause 1: The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature."

      (No guarantee of one vote per representative like senators have; a fractional vote per representative ok.)

    • ”Article I, Section 3, Clause 1: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote [emphasis added]."

    So if so-called minority party obstruction is based on the constitutionally non-enumerated, 60 vote cloture rule, then the 60 vote rule is unconstitutional imo.

    In other words, the 60 vote rule seems to be a smoke-and-mirrors way for the corrupt, post-17A Senate to fool citizens as to which constitutionally undefined political party is the current front-end majority party for the uniparty in the Senate.

    Corrections, insights welcome.

    Patriots, we really need to get rid of 17A.

    The 16th Amendment can disappear too.

    Amendment10 to Kaslin; All
    The main reason that California officials are getting away butting heads with citizens who enjoy exercising their constitutionally enumerated freedoms of religious expression and speech is this imo.

    The corrupt, post-17th Amendment ratification Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration has a track record of refusing to exercise its 14th Amendment power to make punitive laws to discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated protections.

    • "14th Amendment, Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    • "14th Amendment, Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."

    

    The clear remedy for this situation is the following.

    Patriots in all states need to rescue California citizens from their misguided, activist state leaders by doing this. Patriots now need to be making sure that there are plenty of Trump-supporting patriot candidates on the 2018 primary ballots who will commit to making punitive laws to deal with state actors who abridge constitutionally enumerated protections.

    Patriots then need to pink-slip career lawmakers by sending patriot candidate lawmakers to DC on election day so that they can start making laws to protect constitutionally enumerated rights from state actors.

    And until the states wise up and repeal the ill-conceived 17th Amendment, as evidenced by concerns about the integrity of the outcome of Alabama's and Pennsylvania's special elections, patriot candidates need to win elections by a large enough margin to compensate for possible deep state ballot box fraud, associated MSM scare tactics, and interference from people like Soros.
