Now The Feds Can Openly Control This Sector Of Society

Government takeover can happen quickly or it can happen gradually. While we haven’t (thankfully) seen a coup in the United States, the Federal government has been gradually expanding it’s power and control into different areas of society. Whether it is influence and control over state governments by threatening to withhold Federal money or whether it is through the use of laws, the Federal takeover has been becoming more and more complete.

Now, we can thank President Obama for sneaking in legislation two days before Christmas which gives the Feds the ability to muzzle the free press.

The legislation which was signed into law is called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and is, primarily, for the purpose of funding the military. However, nasty little provisions are often added onto legislation or cloaked to look innocent. Such is the case with the NDAA. Claire Bernish gives the details:

According to the text of the $619 billion bill, the Secretaries of State and Defense and other pertinent officials will be tasked with creating an innocuous-sounding “Global Engagement Center.”

“The purpose of the Center,”states the text, “shall be to lead, synchronize, and coordinate efforts of the Federal Government to recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining United States national security interests.”


“The Center is authorized to provide grants or contracts of financial support to civil society groups, media content providers, nongovernmental organizations, federally funded research and development centers, private companies, or academic institutions for the following purposes:

  • To support local independent media who are best placed to refute foreign disinformation and manipulation in their own communities.
  • To collect and store examples in print, online, and social media, disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda directed at the United States and its allies and partners.
  • To analyze and report on tactics, techniques, and procedures of foreign information warfare with respect to disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda.
  • To support efforts by the Center to counter efforts by foreign entities to use disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda to influence the policies and social and political stability of the United States and United States allies and partner nations.

It doesn’t take too much imagination to see how this legislation can easily be used to prevent news that the government doesn’t like from getting to you and me, and, once that happens, how will you know what is really going on? You won’t have any warning of danger before it hits when it comes to a societal collapse.

With this new development, it’s even more important that you are ready now and ready all of the time because you won’t know when the disaster situation is going to hit.

What do you think about this new government leash on society? Tell us below.

  • Well, our bible tells us there’s a time for everything, under the heavens! A time to listen, a time to learn, a time to be meek, a time to be stern, so when those Feds go and push us to far, its time that they learn, like our fathers before, we know who we are!

  • We must exercise our First amendment. Use it or lose it.

    Jews must be allowed to speak in support of Israel if they so chose. And Christians in support of policies they espouse, regardless of countries involved. And American patriots likewise, even if that means we oppose our government’s disruption of Middle East countries and its support of terrorist groups there.

    Americans must not let themselves be shut out of foreign policy discussion. We must not be prevented from opposing harmful U.S. policies just because some foreign power also opposes those American policies.

  • The 2013 Thornberry-Smith Amendment to the NDAA allows propaganda within the US (formerly forbidden by the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948). Mac Thornberry won 90% of the vote in 2016. Why? Adam Smith was a WA state senator at 25, and has been in DC, now into his 11th term. This is why the country is in such a mess. Career politicians that are clueless, and in my opinion, anti-American.

  • had a terrorist event that kept us on the highway 2.5 hours not moving. and it was kept silent. put on the internet news page was removed instantly. and calls to police were told we cannot talk about it. and page removed said on the news channel that the page was removed. really amazing how we are kept from knowing ANYTHING AT ALL AND HOW THE BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA OFFICIALS NEVER CALL OR RESPOND TO THE CITIZENS ABOUT A N Y T H I N G!! NOW THAT REALLY IS A CRIME TO HUMANITY.

  • The danger i this order as written is not what might be withheld from Americans, but what sorts of misinformation, propaganda, and indoctrination will distributed by these selected gov contractors. The disinformation function has been with us since WWIi.

  • Swamp draining must move much faster. WHOM in our slimy government wants to lose his cushy job ? We have bureaucrats and their families to infest government fire 50% at once just to show how inept they are.

  • I’m all for free speech if it’s truthful reporting – yet what I see happening in America with 80% of the media bought and owned by Socialists ( George Sorros) who control what is reported to the public/ the pressures he puts on other media differing from his opinions and considering how miss informed and
    how miss information can play a huge part in Sedition/Treason/ Coup of a country. I’m hoping for an oversight committee to punish those who lie and cannot back up their statements with clear proof before reporting to the public and should be removed from our airways. Misinformation ( brainwashing) can be just as damaging as no free speech. Our media should be controlled and monitored by high integrity and honest people ( held at a higher standard) and not the leadership. We may need a convention of the states to return this needed oversight function back to the people. Free speech should be allowed always but if anyone reports lies or false information to the masses then they must pay dearly
    ( harsh punishment and prevention from our airways) . Social media blogs and articles must also have oversight to prevent misinformation etc.

  • The problem is that violence is not included in the first amendment and that seems to be the bigger problem.

  • Let’s hope it will be used against those who would subvert America in pursuit of their own personal agenda.

  • Congress, get your arse off the irretutable evidence that Obama is a felon, fraud and the biggest hoax ever foisted upon We the People and bring him to trial which would negate every damned thing he has done during the last 8 years.

    President Trump, if your AG refuses to act on this, fire him and every congressional member who sides with him – immediately arrest them and detain them in the ‘FEMA camps ;while awaiting trials for high treason and crimes against humanity! This should remove a lot of new world order puppets from the swamp!

  • I think that every single piece of so-called legislation passed into law by the Obama Administration and their equally UnAmerican leftist cohorts be repealed as the treasonous attempt to destroy the Constitutional Republic and individual freedoms and choices that they ARE!! I am a disabled Vietnam vet who served this Country FAR more Honorably than most in Government EVER HAVE and, I had a degree in government prior to that service from the same school as the Current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Marine General Joseph Dunford, 10 years BEFORE he graduated in 1977. I am also a Tet Offensive survivor, former assistant to and protection for Medal of Honor Awardee for Valor Chaplain Charles Angelo Litekey of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade, who passed naturally 3 weeks before his 85th Birthday on January 20th, Inauguration day of this year. I also spent my last 18 months of Active Army service on the Combat Traumatic Amputee wards at Walter Reed Army Medical Center when it was located in Washington, D.C. and I had to put up with useless and criminal Congress cretins who demanded and GOT better CARE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF THE RULING OLIGARCHY, WHICH IS IN ITSELF A VIOLATION OF THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE! You asked what I thought? There you have it and, EVERY BIT OF IT BASED ON 72 YEARS OF A GOOD FORMAL EDUCATION AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE! The current attacks on the first and second amendments are to silence dissent and prevent defense by LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS, of ABUSES FOMENTED UPON THEM BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT AND AN INVASION OF TERRORISTS, JIHADIST MUSLIMS, DRUG CARTELS, ILLEGALS AND ISIS INFILTRATORS AMONG THE NEVER VETTED ISLAMIC “SO-CALLED REFUGEES. Be prepared and aware of what is to come because it IS coming! Your own worthless government will see to it!

  • I don’t know how many times my posts have not been allowed on Facebook. They are one of many Big Brother watchers & interceders. We are being taken over from within!

  • And mine as well. Will not only be Obama ..trump will soon have his genocide agenda for vets disabled and seniors.
    I cannot post on one media for protecting some who were being bullied and insulted and mocked. No matter who it is wrong. But because I do not agree With some I am shunned but the abusers march on filthy language and threats to some who don’t agree me included. So do not feel a kind. And. Trump IS part of the new world order. Get used to it . was sick world. Glad I am 67.

  • Only Uncle Sam could come up with this sort of vague horses*** that could easily be twisted and abused.

  • but very close to him , the ??? is anyone praying for him . it says to pray for and forgive our enemy . as long as they have breath there is hope for anyone .

  • foolish people do foolish things , but the truth shall be in us and revealed through us at some point in time . JESUS is LORD an KING .

  • So much to do, so little time!
    Sadly, there are probably more land mines put into other laws.
    Hope they can all be found n eradicated within Trump’s time in office!

  • The vast majority of the news is news I don’t like. I doubt that this is going to effect the media.

  • This Obama law is now going to the Supreme Court. Since it violates the US Constitution, it will be made null and void.

  • they may be able to control the media and the way things are going if they remove Net Neutrality from the internet, they have us right where they want us. The government will run over the citizens in this nation in a flash with no care over the people being the ones that pay their salary or even vote. That will go next.

  • How fast do you think it will take to get this reversed??
    We must see to it that it is reversed!!
    I don’t think our politicians even read these bills all the way through!!
    Just want their part and to hell with the rest of the bill.

  • It is up to a free society to clean up the problems that lead to too much tolerance of violent behavior.
    No one can yell “fire” in a movie theater.
    We must teach children safe and respectable ways to express their ideas.
    Violent behavior maybe starts with open parenting that does not set limits for the children. And hold to those acceptable limits!!!
    Children do what they can from vet young age.
    Childhood guidance and responsible parenting is what would reduce some of this unacceptable behavior.

    Just think these people will be the ones voting on laws that take care of us and our grandchildren whe we get too old to care for ourselves.
    Oh, God save us all!

  • Nobody can be trusted to do the right thing in the future. Unknown consequences may lurk in every piece of legislation we have.
    Events change and so does societal issues.
    May we pray that this part of the budget spending bill get reversed, and soon!!!

  • Yep! That is how we got all these immigrants with a cult of taking over our country from within. ……. sad, they even publicallly have announced that is what they have a goal.
    Breed in numbers. Take over neighborhoods, towns and cities. Bit by bit .
    Take a look at how the middle eastern refugees/immigrants have quietly been placed in many small towns. Easy to take them over. Vote in their people, and a start on breaking down this country from within!
    They have nothing but time to complete their goals. Which they have plenty of.
    I do not trust an administration that puts foreigner’s needs before those of the American people.

  • We can turn off the media by not watching their broadcasts, buying their books, and making sure we share our voices in a huge way.
    We can listen to opinions from others in a respectful way, yet sharing ours as well.
    We all can write letters… to
    Politicians, open articles in news papers, tv commentators, etc. if enough of us show our displeasure in a respectable way, it will make a difference. It will be a big difference than all the loud roars.

  • Forty years of decency got us nothing but bathhouse Barry Hussein, time to start smacking leftists back in kind…Brass knuckles if needed.

  • Thank you for your service and patriotic post. Birthers are correct that the traitor/seditionist Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro or whoever the hell he really is was an illegal president and muslim terrorist who hid behind a wall of misinformation and secrecy about his life and history and foisted an obviously phony birth certificate from Hawaii, (no surprise there from this tropical leftist paradise), as well as having a CT SS#. By exposing this evil soros puppet and legally removing his name from the list of U.S. Presidents, everything this thing creature has done would be wiped out. Everything. Then patriots need to turn their attention to the paymaster, nazi soros and family and other leftist capitalist hypocrite funders and the demoncrap party and their twisted supporters who are doing everything in their power to remove President Trump from office. While I do not want a repeat of the French Revolution or the American War Between the States there must be just punishment for this evil and the total obliteration of these seditionists and traitors which is necessary if we are to restore this Republic to its founding documents. The only safeguard against the inclination to evil that mankind has is for good people to be eternally vigilant so any further attempts to destroy this country can be stopped immediately. PC and using our laws against the country must stop now. Every illegal alien including anchor babies and refugee jihadists must be deported at once. Conquest movements masked as religion must never be permitted entry into this country and there are laws preventing this. Nor should communist or nazi organizations exist. The Congress must reconstruct the Federal Court System to prevent our enemies from using and abusing the courts to obstruct national security. No court must ever be permitted to legislate from the bench and the judicial system, be it state or federal, must be reined in and judges held accountable and punished for not ruling in accordance with American laws. Treason must be a capital crime and sedition a lifetime prison sentence at hard labor without any possible pardons. Term limits and limits on donor funding for political offices regardless of whether the donor has access to many phony fronts, organizations and PACS from which to raise and donate money should have some effect on purchasing politicians. Donations to hate organizations like ACLU and SPLC must not be tax deductible and these should not be deemed non-profits but are fronts for the leftist agenda of evil. Evil will always figure a way around any obstructions to their goals and we must always be aware of the nature of our enemies. We are at war and must prevail as the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

  • What are you going to do,,,lay down and let them take our country?NOW,,THE Time has come to standup and say enough is enough. Election is Nov2018 American citizens band together and VOTE out the Democrats and Rep.RINOs and begin to take back our country. We now have a President who will listen to the little middle class people. STAND BY OUR PRESIDENT!

  • spare the rod. does it work? My mother used a razor strap. she was expert in its use. an ignorant woman with a second grade education had more wisdom than any ten politicians today. taught me how to run my first business I had at 19 as I got out of the navy. I have owned two and have done so with nothing more than high school and Navy training. Today she would be jailed for her actions. I would still walk a mile barefoot thru broken glass to spend a half hour with her.
    it isnt the practice of our freedoms but the teaching that they must have consequences. the consequences that tell us that we are all equal under the law. clearly this isnt what we see today. this is what must change for government makes special classes of people and with this they divide us.with this division they will concur.

  • The left thought they were on a roll when they elected BHO….they hoped to carry it forward with Hellery, and just in case she didn’t get it, O decided to make a few last minute adjustments, along with his secret trolls through out the government. The swamp is bigger than thought….

  • We do not need this center. It needs to be rejected and the money given back to the people and not the members of congress for padding their pockets.

  • We do not get our rights from the Constitution, it gets its power from we the people. Also remember until the 14th Amendment it only applied to the national govt

  • The government already supports the liberal public radio and TV stations. This is just more off the same. Liberal stations with their propaganda agenda are not self supporting. Obama was always talking about stopping Fox News. Trump is telling the truth about them being fake news. They are the liberal propaganda stations of lies, deceptions. Instead of reporting the news they are the news, They create the news to fit their socialist agenda.

  • The liberal rioting and attacking those that disagree with them is not freedom of speech. It is criminal action, violating the rights of others.

  • Obama’s 1/4 black protects him from being held accountable for the crime wave of his administration. Any action against him is called racism.

  • The democrats continue their obstruction of refusing to negotiate with the republicans. Now with the help of McCain and his group of Trump haters.

  • @DG: Bingo! “No More Wars!” Look at our track record, why does it take us on average of 8-10 years to end or leave a battleground? Unless, there is personal gain like when we kicked Hussein’s but out of Kuwait so fast it made his head spin! Wake Up America, say no to future wars and this Global Center that is a waste of our money and will be used to spy on us!

  • Not in most of America’s book. Who cares if its racism? That word has lost its credibility being overused.

  • We need to wise up and quit using Facebook, Twitter, Snap Chat, etc. Starve the Beasts! No more sports watching or watching demented tv shows filled with smut and brainwashing and talk to your kids about what they are being taught in school (aka: Islam not Christianity). All these elites are in the same club of Power and Control leading to our enslavement–look up the Communist Manifesto and Saul Alynski’s 12 Rules for Radicals and see how much of a hold they have on us already!

  • Yes it is over used by the liberals as an excuse for their hate, riots, etc. to include the NFL kneeling.

  • I agree with almost everything you have stated above except I’m afraid you have to go all the way back to Abraham Lincoln who started out as a constitutional president and then ended up destroying the constitution while he was in office. The founders envisioned each state as it’s own government (country, if you will) , not a strong Union. Fortunately, we were able to save the constitution,up to a point, no thanks to Johnson who came after Lincoln. It took U.S. Grant to get us back on track, for a while. What we need to do is essentially ,,, one bill at a time, repeal every law created since December of 1912. I believe at that point, the” One subject at a time” bill ( last introduced in 2015) would help correct many of the negative issues we have faced, including allowing an in-eligible candidate to run for office, both with Obama and with Cruz. Either we restore the constitution, or we become just one more failed republic. We finally have a president again, instead of a “Benevolent Ruler”, so there is some glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, many simply voted for NOT Clinton, instead of understanding what was at stake! People need to wake up. We HAVE a rule book. It is relatively small. In fact I have one in my back pocket. When a person puts his hand on a Bible and swears to uphold the constitution, and then does not even try,,,, how can we believe another word that man or woman says? Most seem to have never even read the constitution. Trump is by appearance , at least trying. However, He has a LOT of negative opposition.

  • and I suspect, we may have to use them in the very near future, because once we get a Nuclear strike in this country, whether it be North Korea, Iran, China or Russia, it will be every man and woman in this country on the war path with Washington D .C. even if we have to spend 50 years digging their asses out of their dumbo’s they have built underground. God help this country and let’s hope Lord Jesus, gets here soon…then maybe the insanity will stop for good.

  • It Means… We have information you don’t need to know about. If this “Misinformation leaks, we will just killthe reprter by suicide, and they were deranged all along. Goodnight boys and girls. There is nothing to see or hear about here. Just get on the train in the morning, and everything will be JUST FINE!”

  • How can a law muzzle the free press without repealing that portion of the Constitution’s guarantee of a free press? They can write a law forbidding freedom of religion too, but it would not be binding unless that right were first, repealed! Dumb-asses, like the 98 I.Q., obama don’t understand that people can’t stack one law upon another, in violation of the senior, or initial one. The Constitution is senior to any and all subsequent laws. Without the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the agreement, to be a group, of States, under one name, would be breached and said States would no longer be a Country; just as the moron Governor, of California, choosing to violate his oath to represent the people of California, and “defend the law against all enemies foreign and domestic,” to represent Mexican foreigners, makes him in breech of his contract, with the State and therefore he’s no longer the Governor. Only his oath bound him, by contract, to California and California to him. Now, that he is violating his oath of OFFICE, he can no longer fulfill his previous contract. He’s in breech of contract. He appointed the bigoted Mexican Attorney General, while in breech, of his contract with the State, but no one is enforcing the law. Neither men legally hold office. Our laws cannot be replaced, by simply writing another.

  • People don’t want to raise their children any more. They’d rather leave them to fend for themselves. They learn nothing. They’re starved for attention and love and they latch on to cults to feel something, anything to make them feel better. And since they haven’t been taught anything about life, they believe everything that they are told like these ANTIFA people and BLM.

  • War, tho horrible, is very profitable for Countries. I don’t understand why Snipers don’t knock off Rocket Boy and his regime. And I agree that we should stay out of other Countries and let them Duke it out by themselves. If they threaten us then that’s another story.

  • I don’t believe that. Trump is doing his best but is being stopped by evil Demonrats who have been used to getting and doing whatever they want. They are the ones that are part of the New World Order. Fortunately, the Supreme Court over ruled that moron Judge in Hawaii. But now it’s time to sign a bill to BAN SHARIA LAW. THat should take care of them, and then DEPORT THEM NOW.

  • Again I must risk being redundant but it has been government at the root cause for many decades. My mother was wicked with a razor strap and used it when needed and I confess looking back it was needed. did it do me harm. well I grew up self sufficient and have owned two businesses with only a high school education. but my statement isnt about me. it is about government. it started as I can remember with offering women support to get away from “abusive ” husbands on the surface one could say a worthy cause. the unintended consequences wer that many girls some that I new were looking for guys to get them pregnant so government would set themup in their own apartment and pay for utilities and money for food. the more kids you had the more money you got. my friends were not out of high school. the men were more than happy to comply for it never would cost them anything because government didnt go after them for child support. the problem escalated and many of my friends that took government help still live in Detroit. only now their kids have kids and so on. even if the program has changed the dependency hasnt. government realized that this was a good way to control them. another unintended consequence is incest. with so many not knowing who the real father is they cant know how closely related they are marrage is rare so it goes unchecked. If you are even somewhat aware of what happens with interbreeding then you know we see a rise in a lower level of intelligence as well as a short temper. I am sure you must have noticed it with many of the young people. my four year old great grandson has a larger vocabulary than many teens from the intercity the intent is now control and power. government uses these people to riot because of perceived insult or enforcement of laws they feel unfair. now the people who wish only to live peasefully demand government doo something. that something is always a new law. a law that restricts our freedoms and now it becomes easy because the people demand it. should they try to pass the same law without the trouble it wouldn’t be tolerated. each law passed takes another small step in removing our freedoms. each by themselves are nothing. together form the power to stop us from moving against government forces. I apologizefor my lengthy explainition but I dont have an eloquent tongue to describe what I want with ease of a politician. I have seen this happen over my 75 years growing up in Detroit and working like hell to get my family out to a safe place to live

  • They should know better; we’re not giving up our Bill of Rights and the 2nd amendment ensures the rest!

  • Fact the truth, everything that SOB Obama, and his cohorts, have done and are doing is against America. The whole damned Democrat Party are communists. America is crawling with enemies.

  • You argue semantics. The Constitution spells out our rights as a Republic and our elected official swear an oath to uphold the Constitution. The Communist Anti-American Democrats have been undermining our Constitution for decades. It is time that party was totally dissolved and it is up to Americans to see it done. That will require the draining of the swamp.

  • Thank you for your input, we all hate the evil that is taking over this country. God & God alone can save us, and He has said that if we repent of our evil and turn from it to Him He will heal the land. (not an exact wording). The point is that our problems started when God was kicked out of our schools, then our government, and finally out of our lives. We need to seek God as a nation, but I don’t see that happening.

  • I think the only reason we are not all locked up is the 2nd Amendment! All the laws don’t mean a thing if you can or don’t defend them. If that move to hold a Constitutional Convention is successful the first move will be to remove the 2nd Amendment. Be prepared to fight.

  • As individuals we can’t quit or even take a breather. We must continue to resist the destruction of our Country. That means the US Constitution. There is a move by the leftists to call a Constitutional Convention to revise the Constitution.


    You might be on the alert for a move by ex-legislators to try to get your State Government to approve the proposition. Be prepared to fight it. The US Constitution is NOT BROKE DON’T FIX IT!!

    GOD Bless,

    Rich Clark

  • this act of treason by Obama and district of criminals alligators should be priority one for Trump and company to nullify, void, undo, and investigate and prosecute whoever had anything to do with making this law-from Obama on down. Where is the petition to Trump to demand this treason be addressed and voided and those responsible prosecuted?????

  • FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!
    FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!



  • You are so right about that. He is in charge and all that is happening is told foretold in the Bible. It is most clearly evident in the book of Revelation.


  • This is a scary time we live in. When we allow the deep state to overrun the good of our Government, we give the message we are weak. We are far from weak. I.will not let them take OUR COUNTRY & finish taking it down the path of destruction. Trump has them running scared & they will do whatever it takes to get back control & power over us. Many of you know the truth & what is taking place. You don’t have to believe me when I say, if something happens to Trump, OUR COUNTRY will NEVER be like we know it today. There has been a plan in the works since the 1050’s. Hillary was supposed to win & finish their agenda of bringing a one world order. The weak would not be able to handle what’s been going on under our noses. We didn’t see it because we were blind or in denial & would never think it possible or true. Believe me when I say it is & the time will come & you will believe. This is our last chance. Let’s not make it too late.

  • Nope the Constitution was never set up that way, if it does not expressly state a power the nat govt does not have the power. Our rights are UNalienable, granted to us by our creator

  • WRONG The Bill of Rights was added to make double sure that those powers are stated and our rights do not end with the Bill of Rights. The BORs are redundant. Read Amendments 9 and 10

  • actually you can yell fire in a crowded theater
    1) if there is a fire!
    2)you can yell fire, but if there is no fire you have abused your rights to free speech and there are consequences

    SCOTUS does not have the power to decide what is and what is not Constitutional. Article 3

  • The tenth Amendment reserves to the states all rights not delegated to the United States. Thus if the Constitution did not grant a right to the Fed Gov’t that right is not theirs.

  • I’ve read the 9th and 10th amendments of the Bill of Rights. Maybe you should read your dictionary and find the definition of “enumerated.”

  • I think it’s fine since we rarely get the real news, only the media’s propaganda, which is 92% negative on our present administration. Until that changes, I will get my news from the alternative media. It’s not in the bag for Dems.

  • We all agree this is UN-CONSTITUTIONAL. The question is, what are We the People going to do about it. All I see sofar is us fighting eachother on the meaning of a word or two.
    How about we use the 1ST Amendment and partition the government to overturn this wrong.

  • Enumerated powers are specific powers granted to Congress by the United States Constitution. The framers of the Constitution wanted to ensure the new federal government
    would not become an overreaching entity that might subject the people
    to the oppression from which they had fled. To that end, they listed, in
    Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, the authority over certain
    specific things. Authority over every issue not enumerated, or assigned
    to Congress, is reserved for the individual states. To explore this
    concept, consider the following enumerated powers definition.

  • Nope the powers of the govt are enumerated The Bill of Rights is redundant as the Constitution never gave the govt that power to begin with, it is EXTRA double protections. Our rights come from our creator as stated in the Declaration Of Independence. Read the 9th Amendment

  • Let’s not continue arguing semantics. Hillsdale College offers a free class on the Constitution, you should sign up for it. I did long ago.
    Constitution 101 | Hillsdale College

    The 9th merely states that it is impossible to list every single right that Americans could or should have, setting the foundation for the 10th, which declares that the Constitution, Bill of Right and the Amendments do limit what the federal gov’t can claim as their rights and what then falls to the states.
    The Bill of Rights is the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans’ rights in relation to their government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual—like freedom of speech, press, and religion. It sets rules for due process of law and reserves all powers not delegated to the Federal Government to the people or the States. And it specifies that “the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
    THE NINTH AMENDMENT: states that listing specific rights in the Constitution does not mean that people do not have other rights that have not been spelled out.

    THE TENTH AMENDMENT: says that the Federal Government only has those powers delegated in the Constitution. If it isn’t listed, it belongs to the states or to the people.
    Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.
    Note: Article I, section 2, of the Constitution was modified by section 2 of the 14th amendment.

    Section 1.
    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Section 2.
    Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age,* and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

    Section 3.
    No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.

    *Changed by section 1 of the 26th amendment.

  • Control of the press started a long time ago. This is just the next step in the process. The federal Government is already way too large and the day is soon to come when all those who not only work for the Federal government and those who depend on it, will outvote any other political group. When that day arrives we will no longer be a Republic and will operate solely as a true Democracy where we will be under the rule of numbers. I’m glad I’m 79 years old and will not be around to see the worst of it.

  • The Federal government has no rights. It has obligations and duties to the people. We run the government…not the other way around. The Constitution just states which rights the fed is responsible to protect…and the rest is left to individual states.

  • the States and the people the 9th: The enumeration in the Constitution,
    of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained
    by the people.

  • I am concerned about State Convention as most people do not understand The Constitution. We should live under The Constitution before we try and fix it. We the people are to broken

  • You will get no argument with me over this, but what point specifically are you trying to make —in layterms please, so we have a meeting of the minds.

  • That may be, but without man’s consent they will strip you of any and all of your rights. Just ask any holocaust survivor. That is why our Constitution is so vital to Americans, and why we must never allow Communism/Islam to gain control in America.

  • Agreed on paper, but we are faced with corruption to the highest order within our gov’t on all levels, pronounced in the lower courts. The Communist Anti-American Democrats are bastardizing their interpretations of the Constitution, in some cases disregarding it all together; and even the SCOTUS has become an enabler, up to the point of Gorsuch who is now helping to re-balance the court.

    As I said to another poster, The Constitution is only as good as the people we elect to uphold it. We the People find ourselves in the unenviable position of having to fight for our Rights, because we failed at due diligence. Worse because our gov’t on all levels has purposely betrayed us for greed and power. We are seeing active treason and espionage. Further complicating the issue is the gov’t sanctioned invasions of foreigners who are enemies of our culture.

  • Yes I have been saying, seeing and knowing that the Democratic party needs to be disbanded As it is distructive to our nation. It caused the formation of the KKK and the Civil war. And George Soros is the most causation of disruption in the USA,wants one world gov. under his control.

  • It absolutely does need disband, and the American people need to see it done, since our gov’t representatives are too weak! Never have we in all the history of the USA had such a corrupt party within our gov’t. They are literally attempting a coup for the New World Order Globalists, who are a foreign entity. That means treason! They are as dirty as dirty gets.

    We will be going to war, a civil war, make no mistake on that, and if I were you I would be arming up with weapons the gov’t cannot trace, because if the corrupt anti-American Democrats ever get in control again they will destroy America. They will be taking your weapons, Hillary was heard on video saying exactly that. Hawaii is taking guns on the flimsiest of terms. Example if you used medical marijuana for pain Hawaii requires you to turn in your gun or be fined until you do. We have our 2nd Amendment precisely so we can protect ourselves against a tyrannical government. If they try and they already are, that is an act of war.

    They fully intended to open our borders and flood us with every lowlife that can get here, and they put them all on our taxpayer dollars welfare. Hillary had agreed to take all the millions of Muslims left in the refugee camps. Obama even forced us to take all the rapists from the Australian prisons. They were so horrendous OZ palmed them off on Obama, who was more then willing to take them and inflict them on us. Yes they came here and are in our streets! They were beating and raping the women, and sex traffically, that is what we were forced to take! All because of the Anti-American Democrats.

    I have been collecting all the data on the crimes each and every Democrat has been accused of and illegally charged with. The list is HUGE! They are rotten to the very core.

  • Bella Gray: “From your mouth (or keyboard) to God’s ears”. If the Democratic Party were to be “totally dissolved” the quality of life in the United States would improve by at least 75%. Couldn’t agree with you more.

  • Yes, it is always the same, the Democrats drive us into the ground and the conservatives are forced to clean it up. Every eight years Americans forget and the cycle begins all over again. Although this time the Democrats have added treason to the mix. There will be no more changing of the guard. The Communist Anti-American Democrats mean to destroy us for the New World Order, if they ever gain the advantage again.

    Albeit make no mistake on this, there are globalists Republican too that we must stop for getting in control. McCain is a Globalists, as is Graham, and so many others. We will never have a day again that we do not have to guard for vipers.

    I could guve you 215 reasons why there is a war coming with the Muslims also. I have been collecting data on them for years now. Obama allowed terorist organizations to flood in here and setup Jihad camps all over America. They are stock piling AK-47s, rocket launchers, grenades, chemical weapons, C-4 explosives. The things I could tell you that are even worse would turn your hair gray. General Kelly said on a morning talk show, “If we knew what he does, we would never leave our home.” Well I do know and he is right.

  • Did this pass the house and the senate? If so, you have to be concerned if “anyone even read it”. Two days before Christmas you can bet those in Congress only wanted to get home. This has to be changed.

  • Exactly!!! From my cold dead hands !! The 2nd upholds all the rest. May it never get to that point .

  • “What do you think about this new government leash on society? Tell us below.”

    I think whoever wrote this doesn’t know the definitions of the word “state.” Generically, it does not solely apply to divisions of our country. Neither does the word “constitution” apply only to the U.S. Constitution.
    State: NOUN
    1. the condition of a person or thing, as with respect to circumstances or attributes: a state of health.
    2. the condition of matter with respect to structure, form, constitution, phase, or the like: water in a gaseous state.
    3. status, rank, or position in life; station: He dresses in a manner befitting his state.
    4. the style of living befitting a person of wealth and high rank: to travel in state.
    5. a particular condition of mind or feeling: to be in an excited state.

  • Brian, It is the peoples “citizens” rights to take that control from the government by what ever means needed. The reason for the 2nd Amendment.

  • We are in a global war, liberal socialism versus conservative nationalism. Here in the US conservatives need to take a stand and counter the liberal ideology. We need responsible determined conservative statesmen, like president Trump, that will not be swayed by money, accusations, or any other tricks the liberals may be inclined to dole out. They use “any means necessary” we use “truth and justice”. We will prevail. God bless America.

  • We know what the Constitution says. What we’re worried about is those want to
    ‘skirt’ it for personal gain.
