South Carolina Bill Would Nullify all Presidential Executive Orders Against the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Senator Davis has filed SB 224 which is a Joint Resolution to Nullify Executive Orders infringing upon the second amendment, and the right to keep and bear arms. This Joint Resolution has been referred to the Senate Committee of Judiciary.

SB 224 states, “Any federal executive order restricting, abridging, or otherwise infringing upon the free exercise of a citizen’s second amendment right to keep and bear arms is unconstitutional and shall not be enforced by any federal, state, or local law enforcement agency within South Carolina.”

Senator Davis referenced District of Columbia v. Heller. This Supreme Court held that, “the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess firearms and that the city’s total ban on handguns, as well as its requirement that firearms in the home be kept nonfunctional even when necessary for self-defense, violated that right.”

Also, Senator Davis hold that Executive Orders are not a way to skirt Congress and enact laws. The purpose of executive orders are “to direct and manage the operation of the executive branch of the federal government.”

Obamacare: The Nullification Crisis in South Carolina

By: Joshua Cookobamacare

On January 8, 2013, S.C. legislators and citizens gathered on the state capitol steps to announce a bill that would nullify the The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly known as Obamacare.  During this historic event, Sen. Tom Davis gave a speech invoking John C. Calhoun, a famous politician from South Carolina, and praised him for defending states’ rights and being the pioneer of the nullification movement in 1828.

Calhoun cited the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution as justification for states to nullify (invalidate) federal laws that encroached on states’ rights.  Calhoun wrote, The Tariff of Abomination, which protested the Tariff of 1828 because it favored northern manufacturing over southern commerce and agriculture. Obamacare, the largest tax in US history, is just as controversial as the Tariff of 1828 because many Americans feel that it was pushed on them by the Democrats behind closed doors.

Many associate Calhoun with slavery, but few realize that northern abolitionists appealed to the South Carolina senator’s ideas to defend their resistance of the draconian Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, sometimes even evoking Calhoun by name.

Today, South Carolinians are fighting back against the federal government and have resurrected the “Calhoun Doctrine” of nullification. Many legislators are citing the Tenth Amendment to nullify Obamacare because it will burden S.C. with unfunded liabilities, increase taxes and unemployment, hinder economic growth,  forge conflicts between doctors and their patients, and encroach on religious freedom.

Judge Napolitano: President Obama Absolutely Cannot Use the 14th Amendment to Raise the Debt Ceiling

Some Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have called on President Obama to use the 14th Amendment to the Constitution in order to raise the debt ceiling without Congressional approval. The 14th Amendment reads: “validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and…

Oklahoma Legislation Would Nullify Agenda 21

Senator Patrick Anderson has introduced a bill in the Oklahoma State Senate that combats the United Nations Agenda 21 and reaffirms the sovereignty of the American people against globalist and internationalist forces.

The bill as introduced, SB23, is for “prohibiting state and political subdivisions from implementing certain Agenda 21 policies supported by the United Nations.” The law, if passed, will ensure that the state of Oklahoma “shall not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process.”

If this passes, it will be a big win for both Constitutionalists and supporters of liberty. Private property rights for Oklahomans would be strengthened while the process of representation for the American people will be protected from a pernicious outside influence.

The US federal government officially endorsed Agenda 21 in 1992 when President George H. W. Bush signed on to a treaty with 177 other countries that he personally described as ’mammoth’ at a U.N. meeting called the ’Earth Summit’ in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. He triumphed this accomplishment as emblematic of a world coming together to maintain a safe, living environment for present and future generations. However, there is more to Agenda 21 than what these world leaders are willing to let on.
