Resolution Immediately Voids Several Federal Laws, Threatens Counterstrike Against Federal “Breach Of Peace”
February 4th, 2009 Commentary by Pat Dollard on his website:
The New Hampshire state legislature took an unbelievably bold step Monday by introducing a resolution to declare certain actions by the federal
government to completely totally void and warning that certain future acts will be viewed as a “breach of peace” with the states themselves that
risks “nullifying the Constitution.”
This act by New Hampshire is a clear warning to the federal government that they could face being stripped of their power by the States.
The remarkable document outlines with perfect clarity, some basics long forgotten. For instance, it reminds Congress “That the Constitution of the
United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies,
and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations, slavery, and no other crimes whatsoever;. . . . .
therefore all acts of Congress which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution are altogether
void, and of no force;”
Federal gun crime laws? Void. Federal drug crime laws? Void. The gazzillion other federal criminal laws that deal with anything other than the
specific enumerated crimes? ALL VOID.
One would think that if any lawyer anywhere in the entire country was worth his salt, all federal criminal trials would have ended years ago. This
seems to prove that most lawyers are dullards.
New Hampshire deals a complete death blow to the pending federal hate crimes legislation by pointing out “That, therefore, all acts of Congress of
the United States which do abridge the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, are not law, but are altogether void, and of no
force; . . . . .”
Later in the Resolution, New Hampshire makes clear what the feds are now risking if they proceed further: The removal of all powers from the federal
government by the States!
Quoting directly from the Resolution: “That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of
America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States
of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their
citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America.
Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:
I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the
legislature of that State.
II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to,
incarceration after due process of law.
III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to,
incarceration after due process of law.
IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.
V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.
VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and
"That should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the
United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually.”
