Chicago thuggery seems to have no place in ND.
I think we will be seeing a lot more of this type of state legislative actions in the future as Obama starts really “transforming” us... or tries too...
Basically the states exercising their 10 th amendment rights...
Marbury v. Madison, USSC “Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void”.
Is that really hard to understand?
This is very interesting, legally.
The SCOTUS has, in past, determined that federal courts have supremacy over state courts; and that congress has supremacy over state legislatures. But they have *never* found that the president has supremacy over state governors.
This means that the only way the president can enforce his will against a governor who refuses to cooperate, is with *force of arms*.
The last time this happened was when Dwight Eisenhower sent the 101st Airborne division into Little Rock, to enforce desegregation of their high school. Bill Clinton’s mentor, Democrat governor Orval Faubus, had ordered out the national guard to prevent desegregation, but they backed down in the face of the 101st AB.
So does this mean that if Obama makes some repugnant Executive Order, that he will send the US Army into one or more states to enforce his will at the tip of bayonets?
It is very important to consider this right now, and poll our military to find out if they would obey such orders.
Obeyme has always been a fan of Honest Abe. What beautiful symmetry.
