States Rights and the Second Civil WAR

yeagley_portrait.png

David Yeagley is the great-great-grandson of Comanche leader Bad Eagle.

The United States Supreme Court is ready to start a second American Civil War, only this time, the war is not between the states, but between the federal government and the states. It is more like a second revolution.

As of today, December 12, 2011, we are told that the judiciary branch of our federal government, the highest court in the land, will decide whether a state has the right to protect itself from foreign invasion. The Arizona state law (which basically only enforces what is already federal law) was passed in 2010, and Enemy Barry immediately challenged it. Barry’s boy, the beleaguered Eric Holder, filed suit against an American state for attempting to defend it self!

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer,
standing alone? Let’s stand with her.


This is where we are. The federal government is clearly against the people. It was never so pronounced, never so aggressive, and never so obvious. The cause is not to preserve the Union, but to destroy the nation. The cause is not to protect the U.S. Constitution, but to gut it, completely.

Romney and Gingrich are both very weak on immigration. “Newt Romney,” as Michele Bachmann refers to them simultaneously, are basically liberal. No question about that, really. Rick Perry said he could have the border closed within a year, if elected. That’s quite a proposal. Ron Paul is quite strong against illegal immigration. Among other positions, he proposes to end “birthright citizenship.” Rick Santorum thinks the same way, saying that ‘families’ that have broken the law need to be “broken up.” Of course, Michele Bachmann has never been afraid to advocate deportation of illegal immigrants.

But the federal government’s war against America goes farther. It is war against against the actual people, the real Americans, not just card holders who have recently acquired a new ID.

Enemy Barry and Boys (the administration) has been seeking the authority to arrest and detain American citizens without due process or trial, and to detain them indefinitely. To the administrations satanic delight, their National Defense Authorization Act called America the “battlefield,” thus giving the government the right to take action whenever it wanted, against anyone it wanted. All American citizens were liable to be identified as combatants! Section 1031 originally had language that would protect ordinary American citizens, but the Administration wanted that language removed. Liberal Democrat Carl Levin just pointed that out.

The language allowing the utter abridgment of the Fourth Amendment was, of course, provided by liberal Democrat Dianne Feinstein. Writes John Wood, “The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) permits citizens to be imprisoned without evidence or a trial forever, if the Supreme Court does not EXPLICITLY repeal 1031.” “The Feinstein Amendment,” he calls it.

Alas, BadEagle.com is behind on this crisis. The vote is tomorrow, December 13. This greatest threat to American liberty is on the table! The Democrat senate passed this law, but it didn’t satisfy Enemy Barry. Barry and his boys wanted to be able to put any American away they pleased–like the conservative patriots!

But the problem is still at the borders. Our enemies should never be allowed in the country (let alone in the White House!). Sweeping laws that enable the government to come after people who are plotting or committing crimes against the United States represent a trend that started after 9-11 (2001), and the Patriot Act. But, rather than deport enemies, or keep them out of the country, our liberal federal government, under George W. Bush, decided to give the government more power over the people who are in the country.

Borders, and states rights–these are the practical pillars of conservatism at this point. The federal government has attacked them both, crumbling whatever strength remains in them. Arizona, Alabama, and any other state that wishes to protect itself from foreign invasion, are considered enemies of the federal governments. Therefore, it is abundantly clear and exigent that the United States government, in Washington, D.C., be recognized as the enemy of the United States of America.

Englishmen rose up against Englishmen before. America was born. Let Americans rise up against Americans, and perhaps America will be preserved. The sovereignty of America lies in the sovereignty of each state.

Here is what the Constitution says about a state and war/invasion. It appears a state can defend itself if invaded, which I presume means like from Canada or Mexico. What "imminent danger" means is not clear. Is Arizona in imminent danger? Does illegal immigration constitute an invasion and/or imminent danger?

Section 10 - Powers prohibited of States

No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it's inspection Laws: and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Controul of the Congress.

No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay
