OSHA and especially the new order to mandate vaccines for 80% of America's employed is repugnant to the Constitution because of the 10th Amendment.

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

The biggest mistake ever was to rule that the interstate commerce clause somehow gave the Federal government to take over all these powers that have nothing to do with interstate trade.

The biggest mistake ever was to rule that the interstate commerce clause somehow gave the Federal government to take over all these powers that have nothing to do with interstate trade.

That was from a SCOTUS opinion written by Robert Jackson. He said that because a farmer COULD sell crops interstate, even though he in fact did not, that the feds have authority.

He was also the lead "prosecutor" for the US in the Nuremberg Trials, where they did NOT use US/UK law, but rather let the Soviets decide what "law" to use. That included a provision that NO EVIDENCE needed to be presented in order to obtain a conviction.

Robert Jackson was cited by John Roberts as his favorite all-time SCOTUS justice. Karl Rove bragged about this in his book, writing about what was discussed when he interviewed Roberts for the Chief Justice nomination.

Starting to make sense?

We MUST demand without any hesitation that the US Constitution be the Supreme Law of the land.

Do not allow the law schools to teach 'Law Positive' as the supreme doctrine of jurisprudence. It is designed to be antithetical to the Constitution and its intent is to 'bury' the Bill of Rights in court rulings.

It's like they keep jabbing at the button over and over again hoping that eventually it triggers an unconstitutional effect. There should be a law against repeated attempts to pass an unconstitutional law. Something like life in prison would be a good start.

Well, there are laws that are valid in federal places and upon federal people, but then when they define "United States" and "State", they fail to mention the 50 states or the States of the Union. Then it is just a municipal law for the federal zone, but not elsewhere. Were they saving ink when they failed to name the 50 states by name?

You have discovered the exact reason the "federal income" tax doesn't apply to 90% of Americans. Well done.

Do some more digging on definitions in the code and you'll find many, many other reasons as well.

I've been at it since 1991 :)

And no, they weren't saving ink. The Supreme Court has ruled multiple times that laws only apply to what is specifically enumerated in them.

If, then, the courts are to regard the constitution, and the constitution is superior to any ordinary act of the legislature, the constitution, and not such ordinary act, must govern the case to which they both apply.”744 To declare otherwise, Chief Justice Marshall said, would be to permit the legislature to “pass[ ] at pleasure” the limits imposed on its powers by the Constitution.

Yes... So let's look at the broad interpretation of the Commerce Clause! Then look at the 9th and 10th and ask where the fuck 99% of the federal government came from?

Every gun law on the books is repugnant to the Constitution.

There is way more to this than some case from 1803.

1933 Erie railroad decision. Common law vs equity. Common law precedent was discarded and only equity was considered henceforth. This completely changed the judicial system in the US from that point forward.

some case from 1803

Marbury v. Madison is not just "some case from 1803." It is the most cited case in the history of American law.

The Erie case was terrible, though. You are right about that.

"No state shall convert a liberty into a license, and charge a fee therefore.” (Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105) 

"If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity." (Shuttlesworth v. city of Birmingham Alabama 373 u.s. 262)
