The Tenth Amendment

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,

nor prohibited by it to the States,

are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."




1- KNOW WHO THE ENEMY IS- BARBARIAN MATTOIDS aka self-serving corrupt politicians bent on destroying the Constitution.


"These are the times that try men's souls.

The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country;

but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." --Thomas Paine


Wake up America!


In every successive Congress since 1995, conservative Arizona Republican Rep. John Shadegg has sponsored the Enumerated Powers Act (HR 1359), which requires that "Each Act of Congress shall contain a concise and definite statement of the constitutional authority relied upon for the enactment of each portion of that Act."

The measure continues to fail, however, because of a dirty little secret:

There is no legitimate constitutional authority for almost 70 percent of current federal government programs, and, thus, no authority for the collection of taxes to fund such activities.

Though Obama swore to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States," and every member of Congress has pledged "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic," and "bear true faith and allegiance to the same," Democrats, and too many Republicans, have forsaken their sacred oaths.

In doing so, they have inflicted grievous injury upon our Constitution, thereby placing our Essential Liberty in eminent peril.

In May 1775, at the onset of the hostilities that gave rise to our Declaration of Independence and Constitution, the Second Continental Congress adopted a resolution calling on the states to prepare for rebellion. In its preamble, John Adams advised his countrymen to sever all oaths of allegiance to the Crown.

Since that time, generations of American Patriots have honored their oaths, shed their blood, given their lives -- but not to the crown of any man or a partisan sect. Instead, these sacrifices have been made to support and defend our Constitution and the Rule of Law it established.

Put simply, there is no authority for a "constitutional rewrite" by Barack Hussein Obama, nor Nancy Pelosi, nor Steny Hoyer, nor any like-minded revisionists. Such contempt for our Constitution, such willful violation of their sacred oaths is a disgrace to the selfless dignity of generations of Patriots before them.

At present, we have a gang of outlaws at the helms of the executive and legislative branches. Under such despots, we are being unlawfully taxed without lawful representation. Sound familiar?

Liberty or Unlimited Submission: You Decide

You must know full-well that the Constitution doesn’t grant us our rights. Our rights are from our CREATOR, and liberty is best secured by strictly limiting government to specific functions…and nothing more.

That’s where the 10th Amendment comes in.

The 10th is what’s known in the legal world as a “rule of construction.” In short, it’s what tells us how to view the entire Constitution: that

“We the People” of the several states created the federal government to be

OUR agent for certain, enumerated purposes – and nothing more.


But that’s not something you’re likely to hear from politicians in DC, political pundits, government-schools, or just about anywhere else. It’s generally not in their interest, either.

If politicians and their backers were promoting such crazy ideas as “originalism” and “limited government” they’d never be able to convince you that they have the power to tell you what kind of health care plan you’ll be getting, how big your toilet can be, what kind of plants you’re allowed to grow, where you’re allowed to exercise your “right” to free speech, whom you can buy and sell from, and even when you must send your children to die for them.

No matter what side of the political aisle you sit on, the federal government is not your friend. It’s not a friend to the Constitution, and it’s certainly no friend to your liberty. For years and years…and years, people have yelled “vote the bums out!” “Call Congress now!” “March on DC!” But, in the long run, little to none of this actually works. And the proof is all around us.

If you oppose this national health care plan, they’ll give you that one. If you oppose one war, you’ll get another one. If you oppose today’s bailout, they’ll find a different one tomorrow. Decade in and decade out, the government keeps growing, and your liberty keeps shrinking. And it doesn’t matter if the person in charge is named Obama, or Bush, or Reagan, or Clinton.


More and more people are learning these simple truths – and they’re turning here to for news, opinion, education and more – information they’re unable to get in the mainstream media. Every day more people are learning that liberty isn’t going to grow by electing a new batch of federal politicians, or running to federal courts for protection, or demanding (read: begging) federal politicians to respect the Constitution and your liberty.

Why? Because when politicians and bureaucrats have the ability, like they do today, to determine the scope and extent of their own power – their power will continue to grow – regardless of elections, the separation of powers, and other much-touted limits on government.

So the sad reality is this:

The Constitution cannot – and never will – enforce itself.

You have to.


Earlier this year we made it our goal to bring the 10th Amendment and the principle of nullification to the mainstream political discussion. And today, as 2009 closes, we “Tenthers” are making headlines day in and day out.

Already 7 states have passed resolutions reaffirming the principles of the Founders and Ratifiers, LOUISIANA did it June 25, 2009 see SCR2,

20+ states have passed resolutions or laws refusing to comply with the 2005 Real ID Act, and 2 States have passed (and nearly 2 dozen others are considering) laws to nullify federal gun laws and regulations. On top of all these successes over the last few years, there’s more to come in 2010. 20+ states will be considering laws to nullify national health care, and others will be considering laws to resist DC on issues like “federalization” of the guard, Constitutional Tender, Cap and Trade, No Child Left Behind, the Patriot Act and more.

The founders and ratifiers gave us a brilliant system – one where the most difficult and most divisive issues would be kept close to home. They understood that when states and local communities take the lead on policy, the people are that much closer to the policymakers, and policymakers are that much more accountable to the people. Few Americans have spoken with their president; many have spoken with their mayor.


Thomas Jefferson once wrote – “The several states composing the United States of America are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government”

He and many leading founders advised us to look to state governments whenever 2 or more branches of the federal government were conspiring against the Constitution and your liberty.

We feel that time is now!

A brief overview of what steps need to be taken:

1. Sovereignty resolution - serving notice and demand to the federal government

2. Start pushing for legally binding legislation - issue by issue - nullifying federal laws in the state

3. Press your state reps, senators and governor to enforce the tenth amendment

We’ve done Number 1

Louisiana Concurrent SCR2

JUNE 25, 2009

Memorializes Congress to affirm Louisiana's sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and to demand that the federal government halt its practices of assuming powers and imposing mandates upon the states for purposes not enumerated by the Constitution of the United States of America.


"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,

tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

I praise this work.  Enclourage all peoples to read and study the Constitution.  We deserve what we get if we do not stand up for our Constitutional rights.  States (we) should stand up and be counted.

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office.

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
