    Eric Holder’s Justice Dept. Files Sup. Court Case Which Would Allow Treaties to Trum

    There have been many comments on here concerning the U.S. not being compelled to abide by treaties with the U.N. It would seem that the government's U.N. Arms Treaty is the first step toward the president relinquishing our sovereignty and, to insure he can not be over ruled by the Senate, Eric Holder is initiating a court case which could possibly negate the Senate having any control over treaties. If this is allowed to occur, the Supreme Court could very well side with the administration and we, as a nation, will have been sold out by the most crooked administration ever elected. I have no legal background so I can not say what should be done or, for that matter, what can be done. One thing I have learned, however, is to not say that Obama can't do anything he wants to do. Thus far, he has done nearly everything he wishes and the American people be damned.

    According to Joel Gehrke at the Washington Examiner, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is advancing a case in the Supreme Court which could negatively affect US sovereignty.

    The DoJ contends that international treaties allow the federal government to prosecute cases which they normally would not have jurisdiction over if the US is involved in an international treaty on the matter in question.

    This is obviously a danger to states’ rights and the sovereignty of the United States as a whole.

    According to the Examiner piece,

    The Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino said the Bond case could have ramifications for many other issues.



    “If the administration is right, the treaty power could become a backdoor way for the federal government to do everything from abolishing the death penalty nationwide, to outlawing homeschooling, to dramatically curtailing the states’ rights to regulate abortion,” she told the Washington Examiner.

    Of course, for those of us in the gun community, it’s hard not to look at this case along with the UN Arms Treaty which was recently signed by Secretary of State John Kerry.

    As it stands right now, the Senate has soundly rejected the treaty and there appears to be little chance of it being ratified anytime in the near future. However, treaties, unlike bills introduced by members of Congress, do not have to be reintroduced during each new session of Congress. This means the Arms Treaty could sit in limbo for years or decades until there is a more favorable Senate that is willing to pass it.

    Combine that face with the DoJ case and you start to see some possible issues for the right to bear arms in the coming years.

    Fortunately, some high profile lawmakers are speaking out on the case, including Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

    Cruz addressed the case during a speech given to the Heritage Foundation (see video below).

    Cruz specifically mentions that the case, if it went the wrong way, could be used to curtail any and all individual rights, including the right to bear arms.

    This is certainly one to keep an eye on. The case is Bond v. United States.

    While this SHOULD be an open and shut case that NOTHING trumps the US Constitution. But the way our "wonderful" SCOTUS is today, this could be a crap shoot. I do not trust Roberts at all. If it were not for his twisting the law around we would not have obummercare!

    But that is the way the lib-o-rats do things. So this does not surprise me at all!

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    It is time for the individual American States to declare their sovereignty FROM the nationalist cultural Marxist government. It's the only way for State Govenors to halt any intrustion by any globalist organization to require international gun registration and/or gun and ammo confiscation.

    Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State in the administration of US President Richard Nixon, said openly upon the election of Barack Obama as the US president in 2008 that Obama had been groomed to be the ARCHITECT to lead us into a "New World Order". That being true and knowing that God sets up rulers and God takes them down, it's easy to understand the reason for the current political and economic condition of the United States of America. And as Winston Churchill once said.."There are no mistakes in politics".
