    Trump America Great America Strong

    America’s  gonna  get right back to where it  started from.

    Nov  8, 2016 America’s  Declaration of Independence

    That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom under  President Donald J. Trump — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    ———————————–

    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST DAY OFFICE

    Sorta like…The Articles of Confederation,  on day one, in collaboration with the best minds in America, Trump shall revise every executive order of Obama. Every illegal  and job killing  executive order and Obama care shall be repealed.

    THE BILL OF RIGHT

    ———————————————————————————-

    America’s  gonna  get right back to where it  started from.

    Years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil election war 2015-2016, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, shall endure.

    We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to rededicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that, that nation might live.

    It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    We must never forget the brave men, living and dead, who struggled here.

    THE WORLD “WILL” LONG NOTE, AND “WILL” LONG REMEMBER WHAT AMERICAN VOTERS DO  ON NOV 8, 2016.

    THE WORLD WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT “WE THE PEOPLE” DO HERE.

    It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the sustain the  work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

    It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task before us

    That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion.

    That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain

    THAT THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, SHALL HAVE A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM ON NOE 8, 2016  —

    AND THAT GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, SHALL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH.

    May 2, 2014 – Here, then, are the top six top lies told by the White House with regard to the … President Obama Called The Benghazi Attacks Terrorist Attacks.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Did All She Could To Protect State Department Personnel. In her now-infamous testimony before Congress, Clinton shouted, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” with reference to the source and rationale for the attacks. Obviously, it made a difference to the White House, which wanted focus on the YouTube video rather than on “broader foreign policy” issues.

    Hillary has never answered where exactly she was that night. According to Hicks,

    after speaking briefly with Hillary Clinton at 2 a.m. on the night of the attacks, she never called back to find out the latest developments.

    Barack Obama, too, is absent from the Benghazi story; we now know he never entered the Situation Room.

    National Sovereignty and International Law

    JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA (joined by Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Justice Clarence Thomas) dissented and disagreed with the Court’s invocation of extraterritorial authority.

    THAT JUDGES MAY CREATE RIGHTS WHERE CONGRESS HAS NOT AUTHORIZED THEM TO DO SO, THE COURT COUNTENANCES JUDICIAL OCCUPATION OF A DOMAIN THAT BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE’S REPRESENTATIVES

    JUSTICE SCALIA’S CONCURRENCE REFLECTS THE CONCERNS THAT JUDICIAL IN-VOCATION OF

    INTERNATIONAL LAW ALLOWS ACTIVISM SUBJECTIVITY CONTRARY TO RULE OF LAW AND DEMOCRATIC VALUES.

    JUSTICE SCALIA CONTINUED HIS DISAGREEMENT BY ARGUING THAT

    JUDGES VIOLATE THE  SEPARATION OF POWERS WHEN ADOPTING FOREIGN OR INTERNATIONAL LAWS:

     “WE AMERICANS HAVE A METHOD FOR MAKING THE LAWS THAT ARE OVER US….

    FOR OVER TWO DECADES NOW,  UNELECTED FEDERAL JUDGES HAVE BEEN USURPING THIS LAWMAKING POWER BY CONVERTING WHAT THEY REGARD AS NORMS OF INTERNATIONAL LAW INTO AMERICAN LAW.’

     THE DANGERS UNDERLYING JUDICIAL REFERENCE TO FOREIGN AND INTERNATIONAL LAWS

     THE INVOCATION OF FOREIGN AND INTERNATIONAL LAW, WHETHER AS SUPPORTING PRECEDENT OR AS THE BASES FOR LIABILITY THEORIES, REPRESENTS A DISTURBING DEVELOPMENT IN THE RECENT INTERPRETATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF FEDERAL LAW.

     IT ALSO DEVIATES FROM THE TRADITIONAL ROLE OF GOVERNANCE AND THE JUDICIAL ROLE IN THE U.S. SYSTEM.”

    ‘ THE PRACTICE, AS BORK HAS CONTENDED, “COMES PRETTY CLOSE TO ACCEPTING FOREIGN CONTROL OF THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION.”

    WITH SUCH IMPLICATIONS, JUDGES SHOULD REFRAIN FROM LOOKING OUTSIDE U.S. BORDERS AND RECOGNIZE THAT IT IS U.S. LAW THEY ARE INTERPRETING AND APPLYING.

    A NATION HAS THE RIGHT TO MAKE ITS OWN LAWS AND TO DEFINE THE MEANS BY WHICH THOSE LAWS ARE CREATED AND INTERPRETED.

     IN THE UNITED STATES, LAWS ARE NOT CREATED  BY THE JUDICIARY, BUT INSTEAD,  BY COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE ELECTED BRANCHES.  “SOVEREIGNTY DENOTES INDEPENDENCE. A SOVEREIGN [STATE] IS ONE THAT ACKNOWLEDGES NO SUPERIOR POWER OVER ITS OWN GOVERNMENT.

    Part I of this Article presents the background regarding the invocation of foreign and inter-national law in federal courts. It discusses their use as precedential and supportive sources of authority and as the bases for legal liability.

    Part II discusses the fundamental infirmities and dangers related to the invocation of international and foreign law in U.S. jurisprudence. Further, this Part discusses the implications of such behavior on sovereignty, the rule of law, democratic values, constitutional adherence, foreign policy, and development. In conclusion, this Article finds that adherence or even reference to foreign and international authorities should be avoided if the foundational principles of the Republic are to be respected.

    INTRODUCTION

    With increasing frequency and heightened debate, U.S. courts have been citing

    foreign and “international” law as authority for domestic decisions. This trend

    is inappropriate, un-democratic, and dangerous.’ The judicial citation to foreign and

    international law “a relatively new and certainly controversial” phenomenon is part of a larger discussion on the role of international law in domestic governance.

    THE U.S JUDICIARY AND INTERNATIONAL LAW

    Over the past several years, the invocation of foreign and international law

    in domestic judicial opinions has been rising in a number of contentious areas of law. As the trend continues parties of all political preferences have an interest-and may be impacted  if foreign sources of authority are given legitimacy

    JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA (joined by Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Justice Clarence Thomas)dissented and disagreed with the Court’s invocation of extraterritorial authority.

    These 16 States Banned ‘Sharia Law’ – Is YOURS on the List?

    toprightnews.com/these-16-states-have-all-introduced-legislation-to-ban-…

    Oct 1, 2015 – Well some states are fighting back. 16 U.S. states have introduced legislation to ban or restrict Sharia law since 2013. The list was compiled by …

    And Muslim pressure groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) have pushed to force Sharia Law on our courts and law enforcement —

    with some U.S. judges insanely agreeing to comply.

    New Jersey judge recently cited Sharia Law in refusing to grant a Muslim woman a restraining order in a horrible case of sexual assault and abuse, because her husband said his abuse was acceptable “according to his Muslim beliefs.” In Texas, a group of unlicensed Muslim “judges” have set up an “Islamic Tribunal” which they say will “resolve disputes” in law, family and businesses using, of course, Sharia Law — not the U.S. Constitution.

    ———————————————-

    JUSTICE SCALIA stated in dissent:[T]he Prize for the Court’s Most Feeble Effort to fabricate “national consensus” must go to its appeal (deservedly relegated to a footnote) to the views of assorted professional and religious organizations, members of the so-called “world community,” and respondents to opinion polls …. [I]rrelevant are the practices of the “world community,” whose notions of justice are (thankfully) not always those of our people. “…

    [W] here there is not first a settled consensus among our own people, the views of other nations, however enlightened the Justices of this Court may think them to be, cannot be imposed upon Americans through the Constitution. “

    —————————————————————

    Justice Scalia’s dissent contributed to a growing debate as to the utility and appropriateness of world views in defining domestic law.

    Lawrence v. Texas found unconstitutional a Texas statute bar-ring same-sex sodomy. Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy cited as authority a decision by the

    European Court of Human Rights

    permitting homosexual conduct as evidence of a lack of consensus on such conduct’s illegality.”  Again, Justice Scalia (joined by then Chief Justice Rehnquist and Justice Thomas) dissented, in part because of the Court’s reference to foreign authorities.

    Here, Justice Scalia stated in dissent: In any event, an “emerging awareness” is by definition not “deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition[s],”as we have said “fundamental right” status requires. Constitutional entitlements do not spring into existence …

     because foreign nations decriminalize conduct. The Bowers majority opinion never relied on “values we share with a wider civilization,” but rather rejected the claimed right to sodomy on the ground that such a right was not “‘deeply  rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition.”‘ Bowers’ rational-basis holding is likewise  devoid of any reliance on the views of a “wider civilization,”….

    ———————————————————-

    The Court’s discussion of these foreign views…is therefore meaningless dicta. Dangerous

    dicta, however, since “this Court.. .should not impose foreign moods, fads, or fashions

    on Americans.” According to Justice Scalia, domestic law should not be defined

    by, nor depend on, international or foreign views.

    ———————————————————-

    In Sosa, JUSTICE SCALIA concurred in the judgment but opined separately (joined

    by then Chief Justice Rehnquist and Justice Thomas) to contest the idea of federal common law INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL LAW AS “NONSENSE ON STILTS”:

    ——————————————–

    In modern international human rights litigation of the sort that has proliferated since Filartiga v. Pena-Irala, a federal court must first create the underlying federal command But” the fact that a rule has been recognized as [customary inter-national law], by itself, is  not an adequate basis for viewing that rule as part of federal common law. JUSTICE SCALIA emphasized the general rejection of federal “common law” since Erie Railroad Co. v. Tompkins .

    ———————————————————-

    JUSTICE SCALIA also questioned the interference with Congress and foreign relations associated with judicial recognition of customary international law claims.

    JUSTICE SCALIA OPINED THAT ASKING JUDGES TO DEFINE INTERNATIONAL LAWS APPLICABLE IN U.S. COURTS THREATENS DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES: TO BE SURE, TODAY’S OPINION DOES NOT ITSELF precipitate a direct confrontation with Congress by creating a cause of action that Congress has not. But it invites precisely that action by the lower courts …. In holding open the possibility
