On Saturday, September 5th, 2015, a rally was held outside the jail where County Clerk Kim Davis is imprisoned by the federal judiciary. Constitutional attorney Michael Peroutka gave a stunning 7-minute speech. PLEASE take time to listen – and spread everywhere!
Article 1, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution states: “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.” “ALL” means only the legislative (law-making) branch can make law.
The federal judge declared that she must uphold the law. We respond by saying: What law? There is not a single law in the whole state of Kentucky that requires any public official to accommodate homosexual marriage. In fact, every law in the entire state requires that they NOT accommodate homosexual marriage.
Furthermore, there is not a single federal law within all the thousands of plethora of federal laws that requires Kentucky officials to marry homosexuals.
The American people have been fed a fiction – that everyone must obey the Supreme Court because of the Supremacy Clause.
When you read the Supremacy Clause however – Article 6, paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution – you see that the Supreme Court or federal courts are not even mentioned. Rather, what has supremacy is the U. S. Constitution itself and all laws or treaties made in accordance with the Constitution.
True federalism understands that all magistrates – whatever their level or sphere of jurisdiction – possess lawful authority. And that whenever one branch of government begins to play the tyrant – all other branches (whether federal, state, county, or local) have the duty then more than ever to uphold the Constitution and oppose that branch acting tyrannically – even if that branch is the Supreme Court.
Let us say loud and clear: The Supreme Court cannot make law. That takes legislators. Their opinion is not the ‘law of the land.’
