Obama Administration Says Treaties Trump the US Constitution

Capitalism Institute

The Obama administration is arguing before federal court that TREATIES should trump the CONSTITUTION… please SHARE this.

His goal is total power. He wants to be able to bypass the constitution to regulate guns, the Internet, and who knows what else. This is tyranny. Barack Obama must be removed from office… IMPEACH and CONVICT.  

The Constitution is the standard we should evaluate treaties — and not the other way around. If a treaty violates the constitution, then the treaty was never signed in a legal manner in the first place.

Sen. Ted Cruz agrees. Remember, Ted Cruz was a Harvard lawyer who was a former law clerk under William Rehnquist, the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Here’s what the Washington Examiner reports:

Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.

That is a dangerous argument, according to Cruz.

“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.

Please note that just recently, Obama was pushing for an anti-gun UN treaty. This is NOT just theoretical danger — Obama intends to use treaties to attack the constitution and has made that very clear.

Ted Cruz is right, the Obama administration is wrong, and the constitution is under attack. Please spread the word about this… grassroots activism is our strongest defense at this point.

  1. I get up most days and check the national news to see
    if this phoney, fake, ID, communist bastard is gone by what ever means….and you know what I mean….maybe he has resigned…….just left for parts unknown.
    And if that were so, who would spend 5 seconds looking to see where he had gone to…..
    Even the novel 1984………which I read not all that long after it was published, missed imagining this creep……..being here.
    Oh well, I’ll check the news tomorrow………..again

  2. Well, if the Supreme Court rules in the DOJ’s favor then they will have just voted themselves out of a job. No point in keeping them around to supposedly “interpret the Constitution” if they are just going to ignore it.
    They might as well just paint bullseye’s on all their foreheads and call it a day.

  3. This F’n traitor I want to see hung with a hemp rope in the Rose garden. However, his remains are not worthy of the compost pile and must be burned to fine ashes and flushed down the toilet in the oval office crapper. He deserves less, maybe the toilet in the Lincoln bedroom.

  4. The “boy” has made most of the branches
    of government irrelevant… and others too
    powerful, beyond their purpose, or legitimacy.
    Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time.
    When they come to enforce “illegal decrees”…
    dispatch them with extreme prejudice.

  5. First of all, TED CRUZ can kiss my ass and get the F**K out of my country.

    Second of all, BARRY can kiss my ass and immediately get the F**K out of my country.

    If not, both of them are going to be seeing hemp rope real soon as both are foreign insurgents who have taken control of our country.

    Teddy can play controlled opposition all he wants. I’m still gonna shoot his ass back to Canada, nail his feet to the ground and make him stay there.

    Barry knows there’s not a place in the world where he can run to, so I’ll leave it at that.

    1. Hey NC, I say we bring back the tried and true form of demon extraction. Let’s burn that son of a bitch at the stake. What else can you do with pure evil?

  6. Good gosh almighty…and sorry about taking the Lord’s name in vain here…this sucker really does want a revolt…Just got done reading “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars” and it looks to me the elites have overplayed their hand with this critter. I just wonder who removes him first…hopefully peacefully…
