The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Eric Holder thinks to pull a fast one on the American People.Eric Holder filed a law suit with the United States Supreme Court that says United Nations treaty trumps the US Constitution on laws in the United States.
The Senate that has already had the majority say they will not approve President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry’s treasonous plans to circumvent the United States Constitution with the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. Already 50 Senators banned together and sent a letter to the White House and said no! Don’t let that stop President Obama from going out of his way again.
The Department of Justice Attorneys led by Eric Holder have just started advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow them to invoke international treaty for policies such as gun control and conflict with in the United States. This would include conflicts like the planned EBT shortage. It would also enforce the unconstitutional UN Small Arms Treaty that was signed by John Kerry despite the US Senate garnering the 53 votes necessary to block it from ever being signed. The act itself was committing Treason under Article 3 of the Constitution.
This petition filed by the DOJ and Obama’s Administration would give them the power and authority to implement the treaty signed by the US and allow federal prosecutors the right to prosecute criminal cases that would be normally handled by state and local authorities. One might also argue if this gives the DOJ the authority to over ride the ruling of Posse Comitatus or the ruling of international troops on US Soil!
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was one of the first to speak up about this law suit:The Constitution created a limited federal government with only specific enumerated powers,” Cruz told the Washington Examiner prior to giving a speech on the issue today at the Heritage Foundation.
“The Supreme Court should not interpret the treaty power in a manner that undermines this bedrock protection of individual liberty,” Cruz said.
In his speech, Cruz said the Justice Department is arguing “an absurd proposition” that “could be used as a backdoor way to undermine” Second Amendment rights, among other things.~The Washington Examiner
The precedence is based off a decision on the Supreme Court Case Bond Vs The United States, in which a woman was video taped putting poison into the tail pipe of a jilted ex-lover’s car. Holder and the DOJ successfully argued to over ride the State’s jurisdiction to try this for attempted murder and instead be allowed to at least be heard on taking these cases from the state and prosecuting it under the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act.
On an interesting note this is the same international law the United States tried to prosecute Syrian Dictator Bashar Assad under in international court by saying that he used chemical weapons on his own people. That almost started a war with Syria!The problem here is precisely that Congress, rather than implementing the treaty consistent with our constitutional system of federalism, enacted a statute that, if construed to apply to petitioner’s conduct, would violate basic structural guarantees and exceed Congress’s enumerated powers,” according to Bond’s lawyers.
The Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino said the Bond case could have ramifications for many other issues.
“If the administration is right, the treaty power could become a backdoor way for the federal government to do everything from abolishing the death penalty nationwide, to outlawing homeschooling, to dramatically curtailing the states’ rights to regulate abortion,” she told the Washington Examiner.~The Washington Examiner
With Obama preparing and purging the US Military one must wonder if this was his plan all along. If this case goes through, it could mean that President Obama’s hidden government CBS warned us over and full implementation into a dictatorship would be almost on the verge of completion!
