Tennessee endorsements

Dear Brother,
 
I appreciate your site and what you are trying to do. I realize that long distance endorsements can be tricky. However I take great exception to your endorsement of George Flynn over Wilson Stooksberry for US district 9 in Tn. Flynn is an establishment insider here in Shelby County. He will vote with the establishment every time. He has no knowledge of any issues other than what the establishment republicans commonly spout. When asked about NDAA he was totally ignorant. Stooksberry on the other hand is a dedicated Christian, a brilliant Constitutional supporter and an Afghan vet with 56 combat missions as a special ops pararescueman. He alone scored 100% on the local Tea Party candidates questionaire. There is simply no comparison! http://votestooks.com/?page_id=103
 
ps There are 2 tea parties in Memphis--Midsouth and Memphis. Only one, Midsouth, has actual active members. The other is a "look how important I am" site. Perhaps you got your endorsement from the later.

HOW TO CONTACT CONGRESS

The right to "petition" government in this 
manner was secured by our Founding Fathers.  
As Sam Adams famously wrote, "It does not 
require a majority to prevail, but rather 
an irate, tireless minority keen to set 
brush fires in people's minds."  What the 
limited-government movement needs are a 
few good pyromaniacs.

If you want to contact Congress on any 
issue, you can do so toll-free by calling 
(800) 862-5530.  
When the Capitol operator answers, simply 
ask to be connected to a particular 
congressman or senator.

Oppose Senate Bill 3414 / A message from C4L (Campaign for LIberty)

Dear Juan,

The Senate could move anytime on S. 3414, the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, and I hope you’ll contact your senators to urge them to oppose cloture right away.

Although Senate leadership has tweaked the bill due to the massive outpouring of grassroots criticism they’ve received this past year over previous Internet legislation, S. 3414 will still be a rushed product, as both parties are negotiating final details – right before the vote.

The American people deserve to know what’s in S. 3414 before their senators vote on further consideration, especially when it comes to an issue as important as our freedoms online.

As it stands, S. 3414 would create yet another government bureaucracy (a “National Cybersecurity Council”), and it could guarantee companies engage in more invasions of our privacy.

So click here to find your senators’ information.  Since the vote could come at any time, please call right away to urge them to oppose cloture on S. 3414!

In Liberty, 

Matt Hawes
Vice President

P.S.  The Senate is expected to hold a cloture vote soon on S. 3414, the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, and final details will likely continue to be worked out on the bill right up until the vote.

The American people deserve to know everything that will be in this legislation before it moves on for further consideration.

So please contact your senators right away to urge them to oppose cloture on S. 3414 and allow their constituents time to look over the final bill.

As always, if you’re able at this time, you can help C4L expand our efforts to protect liberty on all fronts by chipping in $10 or $20.

Private Attorney General's OBJECTIONS to misconstruction of the Supremacy Clause

----- Forwarded Message -----
From: Paul Andrew Mitchell
To: Michael Rivero
Sent: Friday, July 27, 2012 10:59 AM
Subject: Private Attorney General's OBJECTIONS to misconstruction of the Supremacy Clause


> There is a section of Article 6 that is often quoted as proving that treaties supersede all other law. "all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land." But, this quote has been taken out of context, and a re-reading of the full Article shows that Treaties, together with the Constitution and all Constitutional laws are the Supreme law of the land, and leaves open the question of what happens when a treaty obligation conflicts with the Constitution.

No. 

It does not leave open the question of what happens
when a Treaty obligation conflicts with the U.S. Constitution.

Here's the Supremacy Clause in question:

http://www.supremelaw.org/ref/whuscons/whuscons.htm#6:2

     This Constitution,  and the  Laws of the United States which
shall be  made in  Pursuance thereof;   and all Treaties made, or
which shall  be made,  under the  Authority of the United States,
shall be  the supreme  Law of  the Land;  and the Judges in every
State shall  be bound  thereby, any  Thing in the Constitution or
Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.


A U.S. Treaty can only be made "under the Authority of the United States",
and that "Authority" is the Constitution for the United States of America.

If the U.S. Senate tries to ratify a proposed treaty that is not authorized
by the Constitution, it is not a lawful United States Treaty.

A particular example has arisen recently from the Reservations,
Understandings and Declarations ("RUD") which the Senate attached
to its ratification of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights:

http://www.supremelaw.org/ref/treaty/reservations.htm

Declaration (1) states:


Declarations:

"(1) That the United States declares that
the provisions of articles 1 through 27
of the Covenant are not self-executing."



That "not self-executing" provision has been interpreted to mean
that there is no private right of action to enforce Rights
guaranteed by that Covenant.

Professor Carter covers this issue quite elegantly here:

http://www.supremelaw.org/authors/carter/


Nevertheless, that Declaration is patently unconstitutional,
because it obviously violates the Petition Clause in the
First Amendment:

http://www.supremelaw.org/ref/whuscons/whuscons.htm#1st-amend

http://www.supremelaw.org/authors/buergenthal/

http://www.supremelaw.org/authors/seibert-fohr/


My correspondence last May 2012 with Judge Thomas Buergenthal
on the International Court of Justice, and with
Dr. Seibert-Fohr
of the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg, Germany,
now follows:


Greetings Judge Thomas Buergenthal:

I just now returned from the Law Library on the campus of the
University of Washington in Seattle, Washington State, USA.

I was initially attracted to your published works on the ICCPR,
chiefly because of your Concluding Remarks in 1998,
as published in the Columbia Journal of Transnational Law
concerning Understanding (5) in the United States' Reservations,
Understandings and Declarations ("RUD"):

http://www.supremelaw.org/ref/treaty/reservations.htm

Declarations:

"(1) That the United States declares that
the provisions of articles 1 through 27
of the Covenant are not self-executing.



I have taken the liberty of scanning your Concluding Remarks
and posting them here on the Internet, by way of exercising
a right to "fair use" of your written works:

http://www.supremelaw.org/authors/buergenthal/

... and, as you so eloquently put it, hopefully by way of
"enriching the emerging body of international law on the subject".



I must say, it was quite an adventure to analyze other Law Review
sources which are cited by you and by other authors
who have attempted to focus on the legal force and effect
of the RUD supra (if any).

Allow me to suggest what I consider to be a very powerful
and frequently overlooked set of relevant authorities which,
in my professional opinion, settle the controversy once and for all.



Although the authors I reviewed this morning do make a
point of discussing freedom of speech in the context of the
First Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of
America, I was awe-struck by what appears to be a near total
omission of any mention of the Petition Clause in this same context.

Using your lucid logic to drive this point home, you and
other authors I reviewed today appear to agree that the
"non-self-executing" provision in RUD Declaration (1) was intended
"to prevent individuals from suing in American courts
to enforce"
rights guaranteed by the Covenant.

In this context, whether or not it too has the force and effect of
American law, the Senate's "Proviso" is also very relevant
in this same context, to wit:

"Nothing in this Covenant requires or authorizes legislation,
or other action, by the United States of America prohibited
by the Constitution of the United States as interpreted by
the United States."


Now, I ask you:  What legislation does the First Amendment prohibit?


That "Proviso" was my touchstone, and primary motivation,
to direct your immediate attention to the standing decisions
of State and Federal Supreme Courts in America which have
carefully and thoroughly deliberated the correct meaning of the
Petition Clause in the First Amendment. 

Allow me to cite and quote just a few exemplary decisions of this kind:

http://www.leagle.com/xmlResult.aspx?page=3&xmldoc=19831816710F2d1106_11638.xml&docbase=CSLWAR1-1950-1985&SizeDisp=7

As the United States Supreme Court has held, the right to petition for redress of grievances is "among the most precious of the liberties safeguarded by the bill of rights." See United Mineworkers of America, District 12 v. Illinois State Bar Association,389 U.S. 217, 88 S.Ct. 353, 356, 19 L.Ed.2d 426 (1967). Inseparable from the guaranteed rights entrenched in the first amendment, the right to petition for redress of grievances occupies a "preferred place" in our system of representative government, and enjoys a "sanctity and a sanction not permitting dubious intrusions." Thomas v. Collins, 323 U.S. 516, 65 S.Ct. 315, 322, 89 L.Ed. 430 (1945).

Indeed, "[i]t was not by accident or coincidence that that rights to freedom in speech and press were coupled in a single guarantee with the rights of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition for redress of grievances." Id. at 323. Moreover, the Supreme Court has held expressly that the first amendment right to petition protects the individuals right to file an action with a "reasonable basis" in a state tribunal.

The right to sue and defend in the courts is the alternative of force. In an organized society it is the right conservative of all other rights, and lies at the foundation of orderly government. It is one of the highest and most essential privileges of citizenship, and must be allowed by each state to the citizens of all other states to the precise extent that it is allowed to its own citizens. Equality of treatment in this respect is not left to depend upon comity between the states, but is granted and protected by the Federal Constitution.



http://law.justia.com/cases/california/cal3d/31/527.html

These authorities make it clear that the right of petition protects attempts to obtain redress through the institution of judicial proceedings as well as through importuning executive officials and the [31 Cal. 3d 534] Legislature. fn. 4 It is equally apparent that the right encompasses the act of filing a lawsuit solely to obtain monetary compensation for individualized wrongs, as well as filing suit to draw attention to issues of broader public interest or political significance.  As the Supreme Court declared in Mine Workers v. Illinois Bar Assn., supra, 389 U.S. 217, 223 [19 L.Ed.2d 426, 431], "[T]he First Amendment does not protect speech and assembly only to the extent it can be characterized as political." (See also Thomas v. Collins, supra, 323 U.S. 516, 531 [89 L.Ed. 430, 440].) [1c]  Hence, the act of filing suit against a governmental entity represents an exercise of the right of petition and thus invokes constitutional protection. ...

The right of petition is of parallel importance to the right of free speech and the other overlapping, cognate rights contained in the First Amendment and in equivalent provisions of the California Constitution. Although it has seldom been independently analyzed, it does contain an inherent meaning and scope distinct from the right of free speech. It is essential to protect the ability of those who perceive themselves to be aggrieved by the activities of governmental authorities to seek redress through all the channels of government. A tort action against a municipality is but one of the available means of seeking redress.



I am sure that, with all of the extensive talent and legal resources at your
ready disposal, you will have no difficulties confirming the standing
and the wisdom necessarily intended by such language as a
"sanctity and a sanction not permitting dubious intrusions"
of any kind.

It is not difficult to substantiate empirical proof, from the few Law Review
articles I read today, that the "non-self-executing" intent of RUD Declaration (1)
is undeniably "dubious" at best!


Accordingly, on the basis of that well developed constitutional jurisprudence
in America, I now feel it is quite easy to conclude, if for no other reason, that
the "non-self-executing" provision in Declaration (1) of the U.S. RUD
directly contradicts the Petition Clause in the First Amendment and,
as such, it also directly contradicts the Senate's "Proviso" for the
very same reason: 

Insofar as RUD Declaration (1) attempts to prevent individuals in the USA
from suing in American courts to enforce rights guaranteed by the ICCPR
,
it is therein a flagrantly dubious intrusion upon the Petition Clause --
as that Clause was previously adjudicated by the U.S. Supreme Court and
by State Supreme Courts which have concurred with our high Court
on this key point.

"The Congress shall make no such Law!"
"The Executive shall enforce no such Law!!"
"The Judiciary shall uphold no such Law!!!"

Quod erat demonstrandum!


Thank you very much for your continuing consideration.

Greetings Dr. Seibert-Fohr,

In the United States Reservations, Understandings and Declarations ("RUD")
which it attached when ratifying the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights,
you have already written well on the meaning of Declaration (1):

http://www.mpil.de/shared/data/pdf/pdfmpunyb/seibert_fohr_5.pdf
(see Pages 443-453)

http://www.supremelaw.org/ref/treaty/covenant.htm
http://www.supremelaw.org/ref/treaty/reservations.htm

Declarations:

"(1) That the United States declares that
the provisions of articles 1 through 27
of the Covenant are not self-executing.


Please note well that those RUD do not impose the same limitation
upon themselves:  in other words, the RUD are excluded from the
list of Covenant articles which are "not self executing" in the USA.

With that construction in mind -- call it a strict construction, for the moment --
we can move on to Understanding (5), which states:

(5) That the United States understands that this Covenant shall be implemented by the Federal Government to the extent that it exercises legislative and judicial jurisdiction over the matters covered therein, and otherwise by the state and local governments; to the extent that state and local governments exercise jurisdiction over such matters, the Federal Government shall take measures appropriate to the Federal system to the end that the competent authorities of the state or local governments may take appropriate measures for the fulfillment of the Covenant.


Let us then focus, in particular, on the effect of the latter 2 RUD provisions
upon state and local governments in the USA.

Clearly, Understanding (5) in the RUD can and should be construed to read as follows:

"This Covenant shall be implemented ... by state and local governments;  and,
to the extent that state and local governments exercise jurisdiction over such matters ...
competent authorities of the state and local governments
may take appropriate measures for the fulfillment of the Covenant."



The latter construction is justified for several important reasons:

First, and of greatest importance in the USA, U.S. Treaties are elevated to the
status of supreme Law of the Land by virtue of the Supremacy Clause
in the Constitution for the United States of America:  that Clause expressly
identifies the Constitution, Laws and Treaties of the United States
as supreme Law of the Land throughout America.

Second, we have just demonstrated that the Reservations, Understandings
and Declarations are self-executing chiefly because they expressly identify
articles 1 thru 27 in the ICCPR as "not self-executing";  however, that limitation is
not expressly applied to the RUD as such, nor to any other Articles of the ICCPR.

Third, insofar as the RUD are to be accorded the status of a United States Treaty,
they can and should be regarded as a lawful implementation measure with the
same legal force and effect as the Constitution and Laws of the United States.

Fourth, in American constitutional law, there is a rule of construction
which necessarily bears on the legal interpretation of the RUD: 
inclusio unius est exclusio alterius.  As such, the omission of any mention
of the RUD in Declaration (1) must be inferred as an intentional Act of the
U.S. Senate and President when ratifying same.

Fifth, using inverse logic, Declaration (1) must be given legal force and effect
if the United States is allowed to treat articles 1 thru 27 as "not self-executing".
This is the only way to avoid accusations of vagueness and/or double-talk.
Cf.  void for vagueness doctrine.

Sixth, it is customary in U.S. jurisprudence to apply the term "shall" as a
mandatory, imperative term, and to apply the term "may" as a
discretionary, optional term in all such legislation:  accordingly,
we are thereby entitled to construct the RUD reasonably as follows:

The Covenant shall be implemented by state and local governments;  and,
competent authorities of state and local governments may take
appropriate measures for fulfillment of the Covenant.



I take liberty to speak for many American lawyers, litigants and activists
when I say that all of us would be grateful for any Comments
you may have on the implementation of the ICCPR in the USA,
as we have justified it above.


Thank you, once again, for your brilliant writings on human rights in general.

Papers, Rituals  and Shackles Necessary for Freedom
 
“Let us consider the concept of freedom, for that is the glorious goal toward which, regardless of their contradictory diagnoses and conflicting therapeutics, all reformers would lead us.  Putting aside the any idea of freedom in the abstract, we see that freedom is what people become accustomed to. 
 
Some years ago this was brought to my attention in a striking way. I was driving in a Western State where, at the time, anybody who had the price of an automobile was a qualified driver. There was an accident.
 
Following the ritual I had become accustomed to in the East, I pulled out my driver’s license and asked the other fellow to show his. He was puzzled. He not only had no license but thought the obligation of carrying around such a thing an infraction of a man’s life.
 
So it is, when you think of it; but habit had wiped out of my mind any such estimate of the license.  In like manner we are becoming inured to the habit of carrying on our person all kinds of identifications and permissions, as required by the state, and never think of them as shackles on our freedom.  The other day a man to whom I was speaking about this pulled out eighteen pieces of paper necessary to his functioning as a human being.
 
Thirty years ago Americans argued that the proposed income tax would be an infringement of their liberty. Now that we have become accustomed to the levy – and how! – do we think of it in that way? Hardly; it is, in fact, an “instrument of democracy.”
 
Conscription is being puffed up into a form of freedom by the offspring of the very folks who came to America to avoid it. In its potentiality, if not yet in its methods, is the FBI any different from the Gestapo?  Yet we don’t see the similarity simply because we have incorporated this inquisitorial system into the American way of life.
 
The Russians boast of their freedom, just as we will boast of our freedom when we habitualize our thinking to the world’s greatest, most stupendous and supercolossal planned economy.”
 
(Fugitive Essays, Selected Writings of Fran Chodorov, Charles Hamilton, editor, Liberty Press, 1980, pp. 194-195)

HOW TO CONTACT CONGRESS

The right to "petition" government in this 
manner was secured by our Founding Fathers.  
As Sam Adams famously wrote, "It does not 
require a majority to prevail, but rather 
an irate, tireless minority keen to set 
brush fires in people's minds."  What the 
limited-government movement needs are a 
few good pyromaniacs.

If you want to contact Congress on any 
issue, you can do so toll-free by calling 
(800) 862-5530.  
When the Capitol operator answers, simply 
ask to be connected to a particular 
congressman or senator.

Pass this on you will Not see this on the government controlled news


Published on Jul 26, 2012 by SenatorSessions   Sen. Sessions hosted a
press conference today with top officials from two unions that represent

U.S. immigration law enforcement agencies. ICE agent Chris Crane is
President of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council,
the union representing America's more than 7,000 ICE agents and
personnel. Border Patrol agent George McCubbin, III is President of the
National Border Patrol Council, the union representing America's more
than 17,000 border agents and personnel. From Sen. Sessions' remarks
--->>(forthcoming in a video tomorrow): "The Administration claims it
has diligently enforced immigration law and that the border is 'more
secure than ever.' But those on the front lines know this to be untrue.
They see the violence, chaos and lawlessness. They have lost confidence
in the leadership of their agencies...
      As you will hear today, this administration has
engaged in a sustained, relentless effort to undermine America's
immigration laws. They have handcuffed and muffled those charged with
protecting the public safety and the integrity of our borders. Such
action has not only weakened our security but our democracy...
        All Americans, immigrant and native born, will
have a better future if our nation remains unique in the world for the
special reverence it places in the rule of law and fairness in our
immigration system."
