The "Everyone Agrees" Family of Anti-American Constitution Lies.

Re Unconstitutional Federal Government Welfare: "Everyone agrees we need a government Safety Net" is a flagrant lie. They never even asked us.

The problem is that unconstitutional bureaucracies are taking turns with the corrupted courts, including the Supreme Court, in actually running the American government, quite outside of the American government's Constitutional rules of operation. Oaths of office today are meaningless.

Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?” –George Washington.

The super-elitist Administrative State is really in charge of much of the private sector of America today, and the term "in charge" may be a gross understatement. It is approaching the level of tyrannical control.  

Point One: All New Law Must Be Legislated.

All laws, in America, must issue from the Congress. No exceptions. To quote from the Constitution itself:

Article. I.

Section. 1. All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

The key word in that sentence is "All". Constitutionally, neither any bureaucrat nor any judge or justice of any court can make a new law. Nor can any President just order a new law into existence. 

And, the Constitution nowhere grants Congress the right or ability to "delegate" any of its exclusive authority to author new law to any person or entity, such as a bureaucracy, that may exist or be brought into existence for that purpose or for any other purpose. New law begins with Congress, and nowhere else, and the Constitution is quite explicit about it. 

Point Two: The Legal Subjects of Federal Law are Limited and Enumerated.

Section Eight of Article One lists the areas that may be addressed by Congress in the legislating of law. Anything not among those listed are out of scope for the federal government to address in law. The Congress is prohibited from legislating law regarding anything outside of this list.

[From Article One of the American Constitution:]


Section. 8. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

To establish Post Offices and post Roads;

To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; — And

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.


[Note 1: These are the limited and enumerated legislative powers of the Congress. Nothing outside of this list may be addressed in federal law short of passing a Constitutional Amendment to do it.]

[Note 2: If it cannot be Constitutionally legislated into law, it cannot Constitutionally exist in federal law. The Constitution nowhere grants the Congress the power to "delegate" any of it's exclusive legislative powers to any lesser body or bureaucracy that may exist or be brought into existence. Thus, no "regulation" may be issued to do that which the Congress is specifically prohibited from doing.]

[Note 3: No executive order or action of any kind by the President may establish any rule, regulation or law that the Congress is specifically prohibited from legislating.]

[Note 4: If it does not (and Constitutionally cannot) exist in legislated and signed federal law, the Supreme Court may not Constitutionally hear and adjudicate anything to do with it. The Supreme Court may only adjudicate cases involving existing federal law.]

How often have you heard some politico, or some journalist, or some bureaucrat, or some "expert", publicly opine that "Everyone agrees that we have to have a 'safety net' for the unfortunate and the destitute."? 

Don't look now, but neither the 'unfortunate' nor the 'destitute' may be found in Article 1 Section 8. The term "General Welfare" as used in the Constitution refers to the General Well-Being of the whole populace, and has nothing to do with any government welfare payments to anyone. 

We the people are supposed to take care of ourselves. That's what independence means. The 'unfortunate' and the 'destitute' are best taken care of by charity, which begins with the family, which is assisted by the Church.

Oh, but the unconstitutional political parties, and the unconstitutional bureaucracies, and the unconstitutionally-acting court system oppose the family, and oppose the Church, and thus, oppose the natural inclination to charity right at its natural sources. 

How do they oppose the family, you ask?

Through unconstitutional and therefore illegal legal protections of such anti-normative family things as 

How do they oppose the Church, you ask? 

Through unconstitutional and therefore illegal protections of such anti-Church things as 

  • separation of Church and state
  • unconstitutional religious litmus tests for office
  • forcing religions to do things that oppose their religions
  • forcing religions to accept irreligious or anti-religious members
  • forcing religious businesses to cater to an anti-religion clientele

When they reduce or even eliminate the normative family and the Church, all that is left is the government. Then, having destroyed the family and the Church, they insist that the orphan and the widow, the poor and the lame, and eventually everyone else, come to depend on the government for their livelihood. 

The whole thing is an attack on the Christian principle of subsidiarity

The whole drive of the Cultural Marxism Movement is to break the relationship between individual citizens and their families, their religions and even their nations. The ultimate aim of insidious, parsitic cultural Marxism is the psychological creation of 'Revolutionaries' who see themselves as god-like, stand-alone, anti-social visionaries

"The revolutionary is the man who has emancipated himself from ties of blood and soil, from his mother and his father, from special loyalties to state, class, race, party, or religion." --Eric Fromm & Abraham Maslow

Another and more proper name for that description would be sociopath

That is what our now culturally Marxist schools are cranking out. Do the BLM-ers and the Antifa nuts begin to make more sense now? They are not "emancipated" from us; they are Alienated from us. They see us - all of us - as the enemy. They don't even know what they stand for. They only know what they stand against, and that is everything, and everyone. 

They may be among the least charitable people on earth.

Having weakened where they have not destroyed the family and the Church, the culturally Marxist Administrative State, the corrupted Courts and the Marxocrat Party insist on repeating the lie, "Everyone agrees that we need a safety net for the unfortunate and the destitute." And then they expand their unconstitutional 'safety net' to include the lazy, the corrupt, and those who prefer to live off of the rest of us. Those who have abandoned their own families, and abandoned their own churches, but still want to be supported by someone other than themselves. 

Marxocratism works on our sympathies and charitable instincts even as it wrecks the family and the Church, as it turns our children against us, and even as it works to destroy us as an independent people in an independent nation.

“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” -James Madison.


“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.” -Thomas Jefferson


“With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” - James Madison, in a letter to James Robertson


The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government. - James Madison: from a speech in the House of Representatives, January 10, 1794


“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” –John Adams.


“It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation of ours was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians … not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.” –Patrick Henry.


“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to die than to live as slaves. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” —Thomas Jefferson


“The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. While, on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves.” –Samuel Adams.


“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens … Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?” –George Washington.


The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Send The Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
