Even The English Knew The Constitution Made Secession Legal

Topics: , , , ,

Using The 14th Amendment To Nullify Secession Petitions is Preposterous

Topics: ,

"Can a State which is not a State and not recognized as such by Congress, perform the supreme duty of ratifying an amendment to the fundamental law?" Mandeville, LA - The Christian Science Monitor is all a flutter with their faux facts presented as Constitutional bedrock in "If your side lost the election, time to secede from the Union?" by Mark Guarino. Guarino has swallowed the entire bottle of "indivisible union blue pills" in his parsimonious denunciation of the recent se….Continue

The Founding Fathers Made The Presidency For Washington; Letter of Pierce Butler

Topics: , , ,

Mandeville, LA - The Founding Fathers Presidential mistake. "My Dear Sir, I am free to acknowledge that [the President's] Powers are full great, and greater than I was disposed to make them. Nor do I believe they would have been so great had not many of the members cast their eyes towards General Washington as President" - Pierce Butler Americans have recently declared the election of 2012 for the Presidency the"most important election of our lifetimes" and that is just the h….Continue

James Madison's "Remonstrance" on Religious Rights of Man Created the First Amendment

Topics: , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - There has been ample discussion the past 24 hours as there has been since the dawn of the "Religious Right" in the late 1970's over the purported "Faith Based Constitution" and "Christian Nation" that "HE" erected on these shores. I am guilty of this hyperbole and historic distortion my self, recorded in one passage of "The Road To Independence". Full disclosure, I am a practicing Catholic, a believer of Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ and a minute by minut….Continue

John Taylor of Caroline-The Evil Moral principles Of The Government of the Unite States

Topics: , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - This is the 3rd chapetr of John Taylor's work  'An Inquiry into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States" written chiefly as a response to John Adams' "Defence of the Constitutions of The United States". This chapter lays out Taylor's belief that no system of government that ever stray from [r]epublican forms can remain free of corruption. You can listen to Taylor's view of this work and why it was necessary in my audio "Docudromedy" -….Continue

If It Was Not Granted Then it Was Reserved - Why The Lincolnistas Are Wrong

Topics: , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Noah Millman posts at the American Conservative Magazine in part: "If the secessionist cause is to be justified in the Declaration’s terms, it must make one of two claims. Either there are no “political bands” of note to dissolve – the Union is a mere compact among sovereign entities, that any party may depart from at will. Or, if those bands are granted to exist, the election of Abraham Lincoln, whose party was committed to preventing the spread of sl….Continue

Who Wrote The Constitution and The Preamble "We The People" Script?

Topics: , , , ,

Mandeville, LA -If you have ever wondered which of the Founders who attended the Federal Convention of 1787 actually wrote the text, using a quill pen, of the Constitution, including the beautiful "We The People" script, wonder no more. In this letter, written at the fever pitched height of the Hartford Convention/Secession Crisis of 1814, Morris settles the mystery once and for all. Morris had attended the convention representing PA although he was from New York and spent the….Continue

Of The Permanence Of The Union - 1825, William Rawles

Topics: , , ,

Mandeville, LA - The Question on a lot of people's minds is actually one that our revisionist history pretends to answer with impunity: Is secession legal? This book, written 7 years before the first ramblings of "indivisibility" would be heard from Jackson, along with the works of Taylor & St George's Tucker, the Of Presidencies of Jefferson and Madison answer unequivocally "yes!" As Rawle puts it herein... "It depends on the state itself to retain or abolish the principl….Continue

Kentucky Resolutions of 1798

Topics: ,

Mandeville, LA - Little is known about the evolution of the KY & VA Resolutions of 1798, mainly because the Sedition Act was still in effect and Jefferson, Madison and Taylor did not want to risk arrest for making their plans public. Any American who wants a precise snapshot of what Thomas Jefferson (with an assist from John Taylor of Caroline) thought the Constitution's power was and where it came from will find this document definitive. &nbs….Continue

Gutzman: The 14th Amendment does NOT Make 2nd Amendment Universal (or incorporated)

Topics: , , ,

Mandeville, LA - New listeners to my radio show are always asking the same questions about the Most Hallowed Second Amendment: that Ted Nugent and the NRA, traveling in their WAYBAC machine witnessed Thomas Jefferson applying ink dry powder to the Constitution's second Amendment. Nugent asked: "So, this will cover every gun, in every city, state, county & federal land, forever until eternity, right?" Jefferson, awed by Nugent's stature and LaPierre's John marshal like gaze….Continue

Lincoln's Letter To Horace Greeley on Slavery

Since this comes up so often on the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM I thought I'd go ahead and add this to the site's archives. Notice that the Great Emancipator does not care which method of dealing with the issue of slavery is used to "save the union". It should also come as an intellectual sledgehammer to the head that regardless of his "intentions" Lincoln did NOT save "The Union" because when his reign of fire was concluded federalism was on it….Continue

Framers Debate Rules For Naturalization

From Mike Church - This is the debate held in committee of the whole on the qualifications for holding office in the new federal government. The Framers took great care to discuss the influence that foreigners could weild if they were not careful. I originally came to this debate because it helps flesh out the reasons why the Framers included the enumerated power “To establish a uniform rule for naturalization” which upon review of this mater….Continue

John Adams-Thoughts on Government

Adams wrote this letter to Declaration of Independence signer William Hooper of North Carolina. He also transcribed this out by hand to William Penn and R.H. Lee of Virginia. Lee would circulate the contents and ideas among his peers in Virginia. These ideas helped form the foundation for Virginia’s first Constitution which was written and signed into law in June of 1776- weeks before the rest of the colonies would join the Virginians in declari….Continue

The Documentary History of Ratification Book Series

The number one question I am asked about my movies is "where did you get all that information from"? Well, when the subject is the U.S. Constitution there is one very reliable and unimpeachable source: The Documentary History of The Ratification of the U.S. Constitution, edited by Joseph Kaminski... The volumes that I have presonally read are IX and X because they cover the Virginia ratification debates. There are 23 volumes in all and they would make a fantastic edition to an….Continue

Incorporation Doctrine for Dummies

The most frequent question I get from listeners about the Constitution is "Why don't you believe that the second amendment applies to the states you gun grabber!?" This then brings up the most misunderstood use of the Constitution: to "incorporate" the first ten amendments to the states (using the "due process clause of the 14th amendment). We need look no further than the complete Bill of Rights itself, in the form it was presented to the states ….Continue

Ronald Reagan LOVED Constitution Day

Ronald Reagan LOVED the Constitution and in fact, issued Constitution Day Proclamations on every Sept. 17th that he was in Office! Were it only so today. I can find no mention of Constitution Day anywhere on the Whitehouse website and have heard nothing from President Bush. Most people will give some sort of "really. today is the Constitution's Birthday!? Yeah, whatever" or ".... hmmm, that's cool" response when learning of today's historical mean….Continue
