I 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.
