The Constitution Still Matters, Right?

So purple Arizona filed the first State lawsuit against President Biden’s federal vaccine requirement. Interestingly, the filing is not based on federal government overreach, or the emanations from a Constitutionally-unstated privacy penumbra for Americans (popularly: “My Body My Choice”), or the violation of the ADA that prohibits Americans being asked about their health and medical status:

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has found, for example, that an employer may not release an employee's medical records even if they are subpoenaed in a lawsuit, unless the employee consents.

Which law are we supposed to obey, and which violate? I’m confused.

States being superior in our form of government, superior Arizona is suing the inferior federal government based on the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution  through which the States created – and limited the powers of – the federal government.

It can perhaps be said that the Equal Protection Clause is at the core of the 14th Amendment. After all, this amendment was passed in the wake of the Civil War in attempts to remedy some of injustices that led up to that war, like racial inequality and slavery. While slavery is specifically dealt with in the 13th Amendment, inequality is dealt with here. Though race and racial discrimination are still at the heart of the Equal Protection Clause, any unjust government classification – the singling out of one group or another – can be a violation of the Constitution.

The clock is ticking...

By exempting illegal aliens and Afghan immigrants from a mandate for the rest of us, Biden’s diktat “singl[es] out of one group or another” of the population and treats these groups differently. (You may recall we once had a war over this.) This mandate and the exemptions are pretty much the opposite of the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, (and the Due Process clause of the Fifth Amendment) and inarguably violate the Constitution. Arizona noticed and is suing to put the feds back in their Constitutional box where they belong, saying, “Yes, the Constitution does matter.”

Perhaps one of the SCOTUS precedents Democrats always demand never be overturned (“stare decisis”) has been un-overturned and reinstated and the Plessy-Ferguson “Separate but Equal” doctrine is again in force? I must have missed that memo.

If Biden’s marionette team wants to grant exemptions to employees of the Executive branch, well, that is indicative of this not being about healthcare. These employees are in every State and nearly every city in the nation spreading their unvaccinated covid viral load among the vaccinated (obviously unprotected by the “vaccine” or why worry?). Mandating the behavior of their employees is completely within the authority of the Executive branch.

Perhaps you noticed other groups exempted from the mandate, namely the Legislative branch and its staffs and the Judicial branch and its staffs. Why? Separation of Powers: The Executive cannot mandate behavior among separate, co-equal branches. The Executive can mandate behavior only to employees of the Executive Branch.

And, guess what? I’m not an employee of the Executive Branch. Separation of Powers and non-Enumerated Powers. Zero Constitutional authority was granted to the federal executive to mandate my behavior. Since I am not their employee, they can’t police my behavior. The states did not grant that authority to the feds.

We're from the FBI and we're here to help.

Why? The superior states also did not grant to the inferior federal government “general police powers;” these were reserved by the states. What does that mean? It means the feds can’t “police” me. States reserved police powers, as well as all powers not specifically granted to the feds. See Article 1, Section 8 for a listing of those specific enumerated powers. Healthcare is not among these, nor is any power over what to inject into your body.

See the Ninth and Tenth Amendments – the final two amendments of the Bill of Rights, without which the Constitution would not have been ratified, nor the nation created – for all powers not granted to the feds.

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. [Ninth]

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. [Tenth]

But, wait, you say? The Executive Branch, via “rule making,” creates arbitrary rules governing individual behavior all the time. True. And yet, the very first sentence of the Constitution reads:

All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.

Let me repeat that: “All…”

What is the difference between legislation ("laws") that can deprive Americans of life, liberty or property and “rules” that can deprive Americans of life, liberty or property? Spelling.

The honorable gentlelady: Congress at work.

Congress loves to dispose of its accountability by tossing too-hot-to-touch issues over to the Executive branch. Say, like a mandate for an injection you may not want to take. Nothing in the Constitution (to which they must take an oath to support in order to be seated in Congress – and should be expelled for violating) authorizes their doing so.

So the feds lack the power to police the behavior of individuals, and the feds must treat all Americans equally, and the president cannot make law. All of these are violated by the vaccine mandate; only Equal Protection is being tested by Arizona.

Now we shall see, again, whether the Supreme Court, also a creature of the federal government and also limited by that same Constitution to the powers and authority that limit the Executive and Legislative branches, is going to find a way to interpret a power the inferior federal government lacks (i.e. “invent” or “usurp”) to the detriment of the states that created the feds as their creature, and to the citizens of those superior states...

… and whether the Constitution and Rule of Law still exist in America.

To Control the Feds, Unleash the States

The question “How do we get the federal government under control?” has gained added urgency as the political establishment has usurped enormous and authoritarian power via this virus and its responses to it. This is the wrong question.

We concern ourselves with lockdown-driven suicides, spouse and child abuse, drug overdoses and soon to be another year of our children not being educated. Why? Because we are asking the above question – which is unanswerable – rather than understanding that the federal government has no direct interest in the pathologies it has created. These are State issues, community issues, family issues.

Solutions – easy, proven, available solutions to the failures of the establishment regarding Covid-19 exist. These solutions follow precedents of Blue nanny states now demanding that non-Democrat voters be put under the thumb of their political establishments.

The recently-published WSJ report on ivermectin, along with other studies published by NIH and the facts on the ground, show that this FDA-approved, proven, inexpensive, widely-available drug destroys Covid19 rapidly across the entire body.

Ivermectin fights 21 viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the cause of Covid-19. A single dose reduced the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 in cells by 99.8% in 24 hours and 99.98% in 48 hours…

Whatever happened to "first, do no harm"?

Contrast this with recently-published German study that a man (old and with comorbidities, but without Covid) was admitted to the hospital 18 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine, and (after the hospital took a play from Governor Cuomo’s playbook and rolled-in an infected roommate) got Covid and died on day 25 post-vaccine, and the virus – against which he had been vaccinated – had infested every organ in his body but his liver.

Postmortem molecular mapping by real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed relevant SARS-CoV-2 cycle threshold values in all organs examined (oropharynx, olfactory mucosa, trachea, lungs, heart, kidney and cerebrum) except for the liver and olfactory bulb.

Couple these two pieces of information with the recently-leaked  AstraZeneca internal study of the efficacy of its own vaccine in six countries in Europe (France, Germany, Austria, the UK, Norway, Italy). AstraZeneca (“AstraZeneca confirms that it authored the document. This information was not intended for public release”) is finding an average kill-rate of the Pfizer “vaccine” across these six countries to be 53 per million vaccinated. The AstraZeneca study also shows that AstraZeneca’s mRNA “vaccine” kills at a third of this rate.

According to the statistics submitted by the governments and related medical agencies, France registered 45.3 fatal cases per million doses for Pfizer versus 17.9 for AstraZeneca. For Germany, the numbers are 29.9 versus 6.5, respectively, for the UK — 20.7 and 24.2, Norway — 164.3 and 44.6, Austria — 47.5 and 7.5, and Italy — 10.9 and 7.3.

The average kill rate of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, according to AstraZeneca’s own study, is 53.1 per million jabbed across these countries. For AstraZeneca’s, 18 per million jabbed. As of 30 July 2021, 344 million jabs have been given in the US. If half of those were Pfizer and half were AstraZeneca, AstraZeneca’s own numbers, extrapolated to the American population would indicate 9,207 deaths from the Pfizer vaccine and 3,067 from AstraZeneca: 12,000 Americans. If one factors-in J&J, the Pfizer and AstraZeneca kill rates per million remain: the kills are fewer across a minimally-smaller jabbed population, but the point is the same: These mRNA vaccines are killing tens of thousands around the globe – randomly – and the manufacturers of them know it.

Which means the feds know it, too.

You probably be fine. Maybe.

The final piece: The federal government is considering that all federal employees must be vaccinated. Many states are issuing directives. Many colleges and universities and major corporations are directing their students and employees:  vax or you’re out.

That’s the problem. So why is asking how to control the feds the wrong question?

The fact is that the feds have no authority to mandate masks or drugs. But the states do. The states also have the authority to reject mandates the federal government is not empowered to make, as has been shown by governors DeSantis and Noem regarding lockdowns, masking, etc.

It is time to address the right question: What can states do to protect their citizens? After all, isn’t protecting our citizens and their families the priority here?

Skip all the nonsense around masks and when St. Anthony of Fauci said that the “vaccine” meets no current definition of a vaccine (it doesn’t prevent infection, doesn’t provide lasting immunity, doesn’t prevent spreading), nothing is stopping individual states from buying and creating a supply of ivermectin for their citizens. Nothing.

Federalism. Try it; you’ll like it.

Governors Noem and DeSantis seem to have the cojones to keep their citizens safe. Given the global reaction to the mRNA vaccines and the political and corporate establishment’s demand that we all inject ourselves with a drug currently killing tens of thousands, creating a state supply of working, proven, FDA-approved, non-experimental drugs that KILL Covid, rather than people, well..

Rather than mandating drugs that DO NOT attack the virus but may kill you – governors providing to the citizens of their states drugs that do work to kill – and to stop – this virus – seems a logical, inexpensive, fast way forward out of this pandemic. And keeps the pathologically power-mad authoritarians in DC away from our citizens.

People wouldn’t be moving out of Blue nanny-states just for job opportunities, affordable housing, lower taxes, higher quality of life, fewer interactions with gangs, avoidance of BLM-OFA-Antifa rioting that has become a feature of Blue Metros.

They’d be moving to save their lives and those of their families.
