In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution. — Thomas Jefferson

We Don’t Need an Article V Convention to ‘Clarify’ Our Constitution!

Publius Huldah

Our Constitution is so simple that Alexander Hamilton expected us to be “enlightened enough to distinguish between a legal exercise and an illegal usurpation of authority”; and he said the people are “the natural guardians of the Constitution.” Well then, if our Constitution is something The People are expected to know and enforce; is it plausible to assert that the Representatives we send to Washington – and even supreme Court Justices – are incapable of understanding it?

Mark Levin’s ‘Liberty’ Amendments: Legalizing Tyranny

Publius Huldah

For 100 years, the federal government has usurped powers not delegated to it in our Constitution. What should we do about it? Should we reclaim our existing Constitution and put an end to the usurpations? Or should we “modernize” the Constitution by delegating to the federal government the powers it has usurped – so as to legalize what is now unconstitutional?

Article V Convention: How ‘Individuals of Insidious Views’ Are Stealing Our Constitution

A question-and-answer session on our United States Constitution, how we got it, about amendments, about an Article V convention, and about the dangers of an Article V Constitutional Convention.

Balanced Budget Amendments (BBA) Gut Our Constitution And Don’t Reduce Spending

Publius Huldah

While well-intentioned, all existing versions of a balanced budget amendment take the focus off the Article 1 Section 8 constitutional spending of the federal government and assume the federal government can spend taxpayer money on whatever it wants so long as the budget is balanced. This guts the protections the founders built into the U.S. Constitution.

Balancing the Budget?

Publius Huldah

The stated purpose of Compact for America, Inc. is to get a balanced budget amendment (BBA) ratified. Here is their proposed BBA. State Legislators recently introduced it in Arizona. The gap between what this BBA pretends to do - and what it actually does - is enormous. It has nothing to do with “balancing the budget” – it is about slipping in a new national sales tax or value-added tax in addition to the existing federal income tax.

Propaganda And The Conspiracy Against Our Constitution

Publius Huldah

In my last paper, I showed how our Constitution itemizes what Congress is authorized to spend money on; and that we have a $17 trillion debt because everyone ignores the limits the Constitution places on Congress’ spending powers. To curb the federal government, we must do things we have neglected for over 100 years. But the “convention of states” conspirators say the only solution is a convention to “propose amendments” to the Constitution.

The ‘Convention of the States’ Scam

Publius Huldah

Our Constitution is a glorious document. But for 100 years, almost everyone in our Country has ignored our Constitution. Thus, instead of restricting spending to the enumerated objects of its powers, the people we send to Congress spend money on what anybody wants - and so gave us a debt of $17 trillion. Instead of restricting lawmaking to the enumerated objects of its powers, the people we send to Congress make laws on whatever they like.

Constitutional Convention: Mark Levin Refuted

Publius Huldah

What Mark Levin says in “The Liberty Amendments” in support of an Article V convention is not true. On one side of this controversy are those who want to restore our Constitution by requiring federal and State officials to obey the Constitution we have; or by electing ones who will. We show that the Oath of Office at Art. VI, last clause, requires federal and state officials to support the Constitution. The other side says the only way to deal with a federal government which consistently ignores and tramples over the Constitution is …. to amend the Constitution!

Restore The Constitution We Have by Learning What It Means!

Publius Huldah

Our Constitution really was a 5000 Year Miracle. Rights come from God, and the purpose of civil governments is to secure the rights God gave us. Accordingly, WE THE PEOPLE ordained and established the Constitution for the United States of America wherein we created the federal government.

Impeachment: All You Need to Know

Publius Huldah

Who may be impeached? What is required for impeachment? Who brings impeachment charges? Who tries impeachment charges? Who may not be impeached? Why do we impeach? Your U.S. Constitution addresses these questions, and they are important to the maintenance of our government and a healthy American society. Do you know what you should know about impeachment?

The Commander in Chief of the USA has been dithering and having endless fun on the golf course while a Sunni horde of jihadists and savages in the Middle East has been allowed to swell its numbers to 35,000 with more joining every week. At the same time, and in direct consequence to the deeply suspicious procrastination of President Obama, the Muslim head choppers who comprise the so-called Islamic State (IS) have seized a massive 144,000 square kilometers of Middle Eastern land from Raqqa in the north of Syria as far as north west of Baghdad in Iraq.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
