Eric Holder’s Justice Department files for Supreme Court to support UN Firearms Treaty

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder listens to a question at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in WashingtonI continue to be amazed at the places this Administration will go to ruin this country. I shouldn’t be surprised any more – but it keeps coming. I just found out that Eric Holder’s Justice Department has filed to have the Supreme Court make a ruling that the United Nations Gun Treaty trumps, or overrides, the United States Constitution. 

Seriously folks….a member of the Obama administration is requesting that the highest court in the land rule that United States citizens MUST follow UN Law. Unbelievable.

Check out this excerpt from WashingtonExaminer.com:

Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.

That is a dangerous argument, according to Cruz.

“The Constitution created a limited federal government with only specific enumerated powers,” Cruz told the Washington Examiner prior to giving a speech on the issue today at the Heritage Foundation.

“The Supreme Court should not interpret the treaty power in a manner that undermines this bedrock protection of individual liberty,” Cruz said.

In his speech, Cruz said the Justice Department is arguing “an absurd proposition” that “could be used as a backdoor way to undermine” Second Amendment rights, among other things.

With something so big I thought it would be all over the news but so far I have not heard a peep.

More evidence piling up that we Freedom loving Americans are in trouble.

  1. It’s now clear, and with brilliant clarity that there’s no precedent that this administration won’t set, no constitutional law they won’t violate, no lie they won’t tell and no agency (SEC, IRS, ATF, DOJ…ect) they won’t use to abuse, harass, intimidate and silence any and all opposition. Maybe I’m wrong, but I believe he is shedding more and more of his fan base daily. Middle America is slowly realizing they’ve made a tragic mistake. By the end of his second term only the throne sniffers will be left to defend him.

  2. @JohnGault, unfortutnately we need to live until the next election…the system is so corrupt overall that I don’t know that that will save us either.

  3. “United Nations Gun Treaty”

    Sadly, no. The Department of Justice is enforcing American law.

    From the article: The underlying case, Bond v. United States, involves a woman charged with violating the international ban on chemical weapons because she used toxic chemicals to harass a former friend who had an affair with her husband.

    The United States Senate ratified U.S. participation in the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) on April 25, 1997. On October 25, 1998 the U.S. Congress passed the Chemical Weapons Implementation Act of 1998, legislation which formally implemented the treaty’s many provisions.

    The Department of Commerce published an interim rule on December 30, 1999, through the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), which established the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations (CWCR). The CWCR implemented all provisions of the CWC which affected U.S. persons and industry

    The BIS rule was published after extensive comments from the U.S. Chemical Manufacturers Association and others.

    The U.S Department of State issued its own regulations which dealt with taking samples at chemical weapons sites as well as criminal and civil punishments for violation of the provisions of the CWC.

  4. What is truly sad about this story is that very few will even notice it and fewer still will care.

    Until Americans hold their Representatives (that are NOT leaders. They work for us)accountable this erosion of liberty will continue. Since our nation has been successfully divided the political elite will continue building the cage more tightly around us.

  5. The Ten Amendments in the Bill Of Rights amended the ENTIRE US Constitution including the Power to Make Treaties. The power to make treaties is RESTRICTED and DENIED by the specific subject matter and verbiage contained in each of the individual Amendments to the Constitution, as is EVERY governmental power! Remember the Bill Or Rights DOES NOT and DID NOT grant or provide rights, it restricts Governmental Power in specific areas.

  6. I have a very simple outlook on what is going on in Washington, if it is not in the Constitution or in the Bill of Rights it does not exist and there fore I do not intend to follow anything that they come up with that violates those documents, like the being in the military, you are not obliged to follow illegal orders.

  7. I’ve heard about this before, on infowars I believe. I am outraged that this hasn’t garnered more coverage. It’s even worse that I have relatives who continue to support this Administration. When will enough be enough?

  8. Speaking of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the best way it was explained to me was that, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, all rights are given to us by God, not by Government. With this in mind, the Bill of Rights tells the Government which rights they are obligated to defend for us and not trample on. We still have the rights, it’s just that these rights mentioned in the Bill were specifically highlighted because, in the eyes of our wise founders, they were so important that they felt they should be highlighted. Maybe their thought was that if these rights were written down it would be harder for the Government to trample on them. Well, it worked for over 200 years before this accelerated slide downward.

  9. I agree with JohnP’s comment. If it doesn’t line up with the present Constitution and Bill of Rights, it is irrelevant and I do not have an obligation to comply. As far as I’m concerned, the US Government as a whole has become irrelevant. They are totally out of control.

  10. I was once a staunch Democrat and I have always been politically active. I remember lying in bed the night Reagan won against Carter and thinking it was the end. I was 20, married with 2 small children and the political side I believed in and volunteered for had been warning the nation of what would come if Reagan were to win. He would restart the draft, he would start WW3, he would kick the crutches out from under an already crippled economy… on and on were the warnings and I believed them all. Of course like most of america I realized it was all a lie and we witnessed one of the most complete and profound recoveries in our history and foreign policy victories that are as stunning today as way back when. Fast forward to today and it’s like stepping back in time. Credibility is in high demand but in short supply. Accountability is an abstract and truth is just nuance. I won’t offer a play by play of Obama’s shortcomings and deceit, at this point it’s pointless. Those who believed the most in him, who had the most invested in him are more disappointed and heartbroken then the rest of us who barely believed at all…. though they may not admit it…. and who can blame them, his actions have been that huge a contradiction from his promise. EVERYTHING, every objective undertaken by this administration is now viewed with suspicion, every goal viewed with distrust… considering all the promises of hope & change…. it’s all almost unbelievable…

  11. I will never fully be able to explain why I didn’t like oblamer I think its because I tend to look at politics with a jaded eye I have seen to many come and go but there was something about oblamer that just didn’t sit well in my mind he seems to be able to tell people what they want to hear and NOT REALLY LISTENS then he goes on and does what HE WANTS weather its good for the country or not this pos has done NOTHING But divide the country even more right now all we CAN do is TRY to keep the damage to as little as possible and PRAY we have a USA after he is out
