According to modern leftists in academia and their Young Turk minions in the blogosphere, The US Constitution and Bill of Rights are “unconstitutional” on the basis that they fly in the face of their notion that the Founders created a dictatorship, a federal government with “supreme authority” in America, in which the states and people are mere subjects of the royal FED.
Twisting yet another constitutional clause to support their claim, leftist legal beagle’s misuse Article VI text…
“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.”
This is the constitutional text used by modern anti-constitution leftists to claim that our federal government reigns supreme, unchecked by the balance of power throughout the rest of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
However, this is the truthful interpretation and intent of the so-called “supremacy clause.”
The U.S. Constitution is the “supreme law of the land.” To the degree that the Laws of the United States are made “in Pursuance thereof;” in other words, so long as U.S. Federal Laws are consistent with, and not at odds with the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, these laws shall also enjoy “supremacy.”
However, what about federal laws that are either not within the constitutionally delegated powers of the United States government; or, are directly at odds with the protections of state and individual rights afforded in the Constitution and/or Bill of Rights?
Our Founders answered this question is Amendment X – “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.”
Our Founders further define this in Amendment IX – “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
We don’t have “constitutional rights…” – We have “inalienable rights” as “endowed by our Creator” and the Constitution and Bill of Rights were written and ratified as “protections” of these rights. Remember that the Bill of Rights was written to provide certain protections for specific inalienable rights of the states and the people, which are “endowed by our Creator,” - in addition to the unlimited general protections provided by the Constitution itself.
Remember that without the Bill of Rights, the Constitution would have never been ratified by the colonies, and our federal government could have never existed.
It is the Bill of Rights that made it possible for our Founding Fathers to ratify the US Constitution. Without the Bill of Rights, there is no Constitution and thereby, no federal government.
Also remember that our Constitutional Republic rests upon a three legged stool, known as The Charters of Freedom, the Declaration of Independence, The US Constitution and the Bill of Rights each being a necessary leg of that stool. If any of these legs is broken, the entire stool is broken.
how can any intelligent American familiar with American history claim
that the federal government is the “supreme authority” in
America, suggesting that the states and people are mere subjects obligated
to serve the federal government and barred from daring to challenge
the constitutional authority of the government they created, and cannot
exist without their authority?
Simply, their left-wing world view and political ambitions drives them to lie.
Most of the “legal experts” who promote blatant lies about states and individual rights do it in pursuit of their own power. They know exactly what they are doing. Of course, many of their Young Turk minions have no clue, since they were raised in unionized public schools and indoctrinated by 60s draft-dodgers turned professors, on the college campus.
Today, we see the same left-wing lies regurgitated by nearly every “main stream” (aka government controlled) media outlet. TV talking heads from Comedy Central to CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR, PBS and even FOX News, repeat these lies daily with purpose and malicious intent.

According to all the president minions, our Founding Father’s created a dictatorship wherein a Chief Executive and temporary resident of the people’s Oval Office can do anything he wants without any regard for “the supreme law of the land” and the states and people can do nothing about it, other than vote him out.
Hogwash! Our Founders and their Charters of Freedom created no such thing. The Founders didn’t create an oligarchy made up of nine un-elected (politically appointed) ideologues, known as the Supreme Court, either.
Fortunately, these leftist morons are foolish enough to spew their lies in broad daylight today. As a result, they are shining a light upon themselves and the people will know them by their lies alone.
The question is this… What will the people do with these liars once they identify them, one by one?
