It looks like things are heating up all over and the politicians are starting to CYA or covering their collective butts. The smart ones are seeing the writing on the wall and know that the people are waking up, if everything fails they don't want to be strung up, so they are trying to pass legislation that will give them an excuse to say they tried.

I don't think this is a declaration of sovereignty like everyone is claiming, but it's a start in the right direction.

IMO it is a little to late in the game for this to make a difference 180 politically, but at least they are making a statement.

9+ States have now declared sovereignty, now add Washington to the list.


Arizona State Legislature for formulating a bill that declares their state sovereignty. That same bill further details their right during martial law to call back servicemen to protect the state:

"…if the President or any other federal entity attempts to institute martial law or its equivalent without an official declaration in one or more of the states without the consent of that state … individual members of the military return to their respective states and report to the Governor until a new President is elected…"


In case you didn't hear about it on the mainstream media (which you haven't because they want to keep us asleep), numerous states are currently declaring or have already declared sovereignty, including:

Washington

"The Tenth Amendment was intended to confirm the understanding of the people at the time the Constitution was adopted, that powers not granted to the United States were reserved to the States or to the people. It added nothing to the instrument as originally ratified." — United States v. Sprague, 282 U.S. 716, 733 (1931).

I like what they are doing!

Essentially, what I believe these bills/resolutions that states are passing (or trying to pass) is really just to remind the federal government who THEIR boss is, why the federal government was formed, and to reiterate the powers that were actually given to the Federal Government by the states.

State legislator Charles Key Tenth Amendment Resolution


Key, R-Oklahoma City, said he thinks many federal laws violate the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states the powers not delegated to the federal government “are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” The Constitution lists about 20 duties required of the federal government.

“We, the people in the states, created the federal government,” Key said. “They act like they created us and we’re under their authority, and that’s really not the case.”

What’s proposed?

Key’s resolution states the federal government should “cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.” A resolution is a formal expression of opinion, will or intention voted by legislators.

“It’s to help try to get us back to following the Constitution and try to preserve our constitutional form of government,” Key said. “The federal government continues to violate it more and more. It’s gotten so bad that they pretty much do whatever they want and get away with just about anything they want to get away with.”



I must say I pretty much agree with this guy!

Missouri's actually didn't go anywhere. So please remove it. It got combined with another resolution on abortion and essentially wiped out. Also resolutions in Missouri don't really carry any water.

Who would've thought that a resolution needs to be introduced stating that the federal government is bound by the Constitution. What a day we live in! Hopefully this will be used to rein in the fed govt and not as an excuse to label States as terrorist organizations


On a side note, I hope this means that the DEA will stop busting Cannabis Clubs in California. Plenty of meth labs and rock houses for them to go after!

Very good post. Too bad Utah isn't in there yet. Things seem to be heating up for sure. I am hoping for the best.

Oh Boy this is awesome! My state is considering it. I think there is a lot more going on that we have yet to hear about. A lot more good people in government finally getting the stones to do what will serve their legacy well.

I don't think I'll ever see Virginia up there.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

Thank you for posting the full list of States involved, I went through the whole other thread and couldn't find a list. Wow, this really hits home for me. How possible is this? Would it have to be after martial law is called?

Could we actually see the time when States fight one another? And what of the military? Who's are they if the US breaks up? Too many questions I know but my head is reeling on this.

How on earth could I go to war with any state in this Union, as I have friends and family in almost every state.

My question is, why was this not done during Bush's Presidency?

He wrote so many dictorial type executive orders, so why didn't they do it when the states were more at the edge of a dictatorship?

I'm starting to see a possible manipulation taking place. All this worry about martial law, and concerns brought up time and time again. Then more recently, threads about someone in Russia showing a map of the US in a year or so, carved up, with California going to China, and the South going to Mexico, Canada getting the wheat portion, and Russia getting Alaska, etc. This is not a situation anyone wishes to see, thats sane in anycase. It would mean the dismantling of the US, as has been foretold in other threads.

Now, what if this is a carefully played chess game, with all that information being leaked deliberately ahead of time to make it look like this is a good thing. Then a crisis, martial law, the break up of the US and the takeover.

People need to really seek answers right now, and find out how to reinstate their collective will before the US goes through any of this. I may not like the leaders and the puppet masters behind them, but love you guys.

Antar, I am sure your aware that martial law was hung over the heads of everyone in congress during the first bail out. Basically, since the first attempt did not work, congress was told that martial law would be declared if it was not passed.

I think most of the reps that have any type of backbone saw right through the BS and now you are seeing the result.

As for states fighting each other I highly doubt it since they are seeing through the BS that is getting fed to them by a select few. I don't believe we will see civil war, but more of a restructuring of the political system and our entire financial system.

Here is a link to what was said.




During his speaking time on Thurs, Congressman Sherman stated explicitly, "Many of us were told in private conversations, that if we didn't pass this bill on Monday, the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points, another couple thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be Martial Law in America if we voted no(to the bail out bill)."



Martial law if Bailout is not passed

Excuse me but why now?, why not when the nations was been raped by the disastrous bad policies during the Bush administration.

Why now. itsn't kind of late now, most states are bankrupted, unemployment is high and the many states are running out of funds.

Hey Marg,

Here is how it is. In order for a society to rebuild on a solid foundation, the old one must be taken down. Just like in building a wall of a house, no sense in starting a new building on a weak foundation. It only makes sense to clear the slate and start from a new one.

Sometimes when your up to your ass in alligators, you need to drain the swamp first.

Things are going to be ok, we have so many smart, talented, loyal and ethical people here in the USA.

Im taking the time to read over all these. In New Hampshire's, I noticed this..


Whereas the other States that included recommendations, to wit Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia, included an identical or similar recommended change



Does that mean those states are in as well?

For the most part yes, but they are in the process of drafting the resolutions, then I am sure they will introduce them.

We'll keep an eye out for more of them and post them as they surface, I don't think this is the end of it.

Not a chance, considering N. Virginia has the largest concentration of federal employees in the US.

Funny, these states still submitted wish lists for the porculous bill. Guess they aren't quite as independent as they preach.

I hear ya, I would have thought that Utah would be one of the first. I have emailed the Utah Governor's office as well as state reps, so far I have heard nothing back on this.

Thank you and that is what I suspected happened with President Obama. For all of his great speeches it is never his true responsibility to enact these laws, you are right we are waking up and aware, but it changes nothing when we see a new President come in with good intentions only to watch as their entire demeanor changes after a few closed door meetings.

I suspect that he knows his hands are tied and it is the sovereignty of the US and the future of our people that are at stake so he complies rather than watch us wither away into a complete depression, but for how long will it be held off? The other bailout is resent history, the checks have not even been completely spent, and now this one too?

Are we simply bailing out the banks like we did the mortgage brokers last time? Is it the final send off or are we going to see one more bailout to the insurance companies after some major catastrophe first?
