Arizona House Bill 2368, passed by the Arizona House Wednesday 18 March with a vote of 36-24, would prohibit the State of Arizona " or any of its political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with an executive order issued by the President of the U.S. that has not been affirmed by a vote of Congress and signed into law as prescribed by the U.S. Constitution." The bill further prohibits "this state or any of its political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with a policy directive issued by the U.S. DOJ to law enforcement agencies in this state that has not been affirmed by a vote of Congress and signed into law as prescribed by the U.S. Constitution."
In other words, any of Emperor Obama's illegal "executive legislations" or of Obama's enforcer Eric Holder's lawless attempts to nationalize the nations police departments is illegal in Arizona. And these acts are illegal because they do not conform to the Constitution of the United States that Arizona agreed to when she became a State in 1912.
The Arizona House also passed, on Thursday 12 March, House Bill 2643, that would prohibit the State of Arizona from “using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with the Affordable Care Act.” So Arizona is also opting out of Obamacare, on the grounds that the ACA was passed by Congress in violation of Constitutional procedures and that the provisions of the Act violate the guarantees provided in the Constitution of the United States.
Both bills have been forwarded to the Arizona Senate, where their prognosis is good. When the Senate passes them, Arizona Governor Ducey will almost certainly sign them into law.
This is the way to win, America. Even if we could successfully pull off an Article V Constitutional convention without losing more than we gained, we'd be wasting our time amending a Constitution that the federal government consistently ignores. The first thing we've got to do is get Washington DC to admit that the Constitution exists, and the way to do that is to insist on its enforcement within the borders of our several sovereign States.
Yes, Eric Holder will challenge these laws, as he challenged the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals nullification of Federal Judge Neva Gonzales' attempt to overturn Texas' voting law last October. But Holder lost that round, and he will lose more and more rounds because the Constitution – as it stands right now – guarantees that he will lose. And every time he loses, the strength and the power of the Constitution of the United States will become more and more evident to more and more Americans.
Eventually, State law by State law and State court victory by State court victory, we will take back our country from the enemies domestic who have stolen it from us.
