obama state of unionUPDATE, June 24: House passed H.R. 5175 by 219-206 today. Senate still must vote. As you might be already aware, House Speaker Pelosi had to pull the DISCLOSE Act, H.R. 5175, from a scheduled vote last Friday, when widespread outrage erupted over a special exemption for the NRA in exchange for not opposing the bill. Well, the bill is still alive and well with a vote now scheduled in the House for tomorrow, June 24. The Senate leadership has already promised Pelosi that if the House passes the bill, then the Senate will vote on it in time for it to take effect for the elections this fall.

Ron PaulLast night Ron Paul made an urgent appeal via a 2 1/2 minute video (see below) for immediate help in contacting senators to reject Bernie Sanders' new, watered-down Fed transparency amendment and to support an amendment with the original "Audit the Fed" language of H.R. 1207 and S. 604. A vote on Sanders' amendment to S. 3217 (the financial services overhaul bill) is expected on Tuesday, May 11. (For results of the votes on May 11, read "Senate Caves to Fed Pressure, Waters Down Audit.")

There’s a lot of confusion occurring over what’s being nullified by the “Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act” legislation that’s been introduced in over 30 states, and already enacted into law in Virginia, Idaho, Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana. This legislation has been based on model legislation developed by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) back in December 2008, over a year before ObamaCare finally became law.

Ron PaulLast Saturday Ron Paul spoke at a John Dennis for Congress rally in San Francisco. Dennis just happens to be challenging Nancy Pelosi for her House seat.

Here’s a three-minute video clip from Paul’s speech in which he expresses great satisfaction over the rapidly increasing interest in state nullification of federal laws.

 

The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:

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.

This Amendment, one of the most important in the Bill of Rights, has for generations served to protect the states and the people from overzealous federal encroachment. Recent decades, however, have seen federal power grow to enormous proportions. As a result, all across America states have been working to reassert their rights and the rights of their citizens under the Tenth Amendment.

The John Birch Society believes strongly in the principles of federalism built into the Constitution by the Founding Fathers and is working to support the movement to reassert the importance of the entire Bill of Rights, including the Tenth Amendment.
